Attempted Terrorist Bombing Of Christmas Tree Lighting By Follower Of Religion Of Peace, Tolerance, And Jihad

Well, I assume he's a member of that religion, given his name, his expressed desire to engage in jihad, and his having shouted "Allahu Akbar!" as he was arrested -- but then again, he could have just been a really confused Mennonite or Quaker.

Anyway, here's the story.

A 19-year-old has been arrested in connection with a plot to detonate a vehicle bomb at an annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Portland, Oregon, on Friday evening, the Justice Department announced.

Mohamed Osman Mohamud, a naturalized U.S. citizen from Somalia, was arrested on suspicion of attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction. He is a resident of Corvallis, Oregon, and is a student at Oregon State University, according to the FBI.

Mohamud was arrested by the FBI and Portland Police Bureau after he attempted to detonate what he believed to be an explosives-laden van that was parked near the tree-lighting ceremony in Portland's Pioneer Courthouse Square, the Justice

Department said in a written statement, but the device was actually inert.

"The threat was very real. Our investigation shows that Mohamud was absolutely committed to carrying out an attack on a very grand scale," said Arthur Balizan, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI in Oregon. "At the same time, I want to reassure the people of this community that, at every turn, we denied him the ability to actually carry out the attack."

This isn't some guy who decided he wanted to make a little joke by setting off fireworks -- he wanted to kill people in a public place, in particular those who celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. And he plotted and planned for over a year about carrying out this mission of murder and mayhem, so we know it was a serious plan, not just some kid shooting off his mouth. Indeed, reports indicate that he has claimed to have wanted to engage in jihad since he was 15.

But nobody in the media or law enforcement dares to suggest that, once again, there might be a connection between a terrorist effort and the religion of the terrorist -- even though the terrorist is named Mohamed Mohamud and he shouted out the same traditional Muslim battle cry that has been used repeatedly by terrorists over the last decade as they targeted their victims in the name of their false god and false prophet. I somehow doubt we would have seen such restraint if someone named Jesus Santamaria had shouted "Hail Mary, full of grace" when arrested after a failed attack on an abortion clinic.

Of course, I'm sure we are going to hear that this attempted terrorist attack is just one more isolated incident engaged in by those who misunderstand Islam and are hijacking a great and peaceful religion. But after so many attacks by so many individuals who have the same misunderstanding of the same religion, isn't it time for us to recognize the obvious truth and expect our government officials to acknowledge it -- namely that there is something malignant at the core of Islam that leads its followers time and again to seek to engage in murder and mayhem in its name? You know, and begin making anti-terrorism and immigration policy accordingly.

UPDATE: And the leftists at FireDogLake insist they know who is responsible -- the FBI! H/T Patterico

Comments on Attempted Terrorist Bombing Of Christmas Tree Lighting By Follower Of Religion Of Peace, Tolerance, And Jihad

There is a large immigrant population in Portland. It appears someone decided without telling anyone to bring about a mass immigration. The burden on schools and the social welfare system is enormous not to mention the increase in crime. Why did this happen? Did someone decide the U.S. didn't have enough poor illiterate citizens? My question is why aren't those who brought this burden here responsible. If some NGO or church brings in immigrants they should pay all of the associated costs. Wake up! Your country is being stolen from you.

The problem is that TSA needs to be at the entrance to public events. If we just felt up enough nuns and grandmothers this kind of stuff wouldn't happen. It is purely coincidence that this man is a muslim between the ages of 18 and 49 from a Muslim country. We need to frisk more blondes and babies...
