"Homegrown" Terror Plot
The "religion of peace" is at it again...
Six foreign-born Muslims, half here illegally (Gee, I wonder how they got here?) were arrested for planning to assault Fort Dix with automatic weapons and rocket-propelled grenade launchers.
No doubt they would have murdered many soldiers before a response could be made.
Thankfully, an alert video store clerk notified authorities that the wanna-be jihadis requested a DVD be copied, which contained scenes of terrorist training camps, 'last wills' by some of the 9-11 hijackers, clips of Osama bin Laden, and lots of cries for "JIHAD."
The terrorists were arrested while trying to buy AK-47s, M-16s and other weapons.
The FBI says that the six Muslims don't appear to have any ties to al-Qaida, or any other international terror group, making them more difficult to track.
How did these cowards prepare? Excerpted:
One of the suspects, Tatar, worked at his father's pizzeria and made deliveries to the base, using the opportunity to scout out Fort Dix for an attack, authorities said.
The men trained by playing paintball in the woods in New Jersey and taking target practice at a firing range in Pennsylvania's Pocono Mountains, where they had rented a house, authorities said.
Of course, why stop with Ft. Dix, even though there would be less than a snowball's chance in Hell of making it out alive?
These cretins also wanted to attack a Philadelphia Navy installation during the annual Army-Navy football game.
Are you ready for your head to explode?
"If these people did something, then they deserve to be punished to the fullest extent of the law," said Sohail Mohammed, a lawyer who represented scores of detainees after the Sept. 11 attacks. "But when the government says `Islamic militants,' it sends a message to the public that Islam and militancy are synonymous."
"Don't equate actions with religion," he said.
Gee, Mohammed... Maybe we wouldn't if every time we turned on the news we didn't hear about members of your 'peaceful' religion killing innocent people, homicide bombing grocery stores, launching rockets at Israeli kindergartens... The list goes on and on.
Terror attacks by Muslims are committed in the name of Allah and Islam.
Mario Tummillo, who lives near Tatar's father in Cookstown, said he worked with Tatar at a pizza parlor. Tummillo, 20, described Tatar as a religious man who "wasn't violent at all."
Unless you count the whole terror plot thing, of course.
He recalled Tatar praying in the back of the restaurant and said Tatar often talked about religion, bringing it up in conversations about other subjects.
"He would start talking about how you should worship God," Tummillo said.
Hey, but we can't equate actions with religion, right? Riiiiight.
