Megan McArdle of The Atlantic wrote about how this made-up quote attributed to MLK rapidly spread on the Internet (http://www.theatlantic.com/national/archive/2011/05/out-of-osamas-death-a-fake-quotation-is-born/238220/). Mashable did a story, too (http://mashable.com/2011/05/03/altered-mlk-quote/). This particular line was added to a legitimate MLK quote that's not included here.
