Only Muslims Commit Terrorism

-->
abortion, Terrorism

If you define terrorism as an act committed by Muslims, then only Muslims can commit terrorism, right? Thus, when a bomb is planted outside an abortion clinic by the Fetus People, it’s not terrorism. It’s free speech. Perfectly logical.

Update: Thanks much to alert maha reader MapRef41N93W, who sent a link to this story from today’s Birmingham (AL) News that’s not about terrorists:

Simultaneous raids carried out in four Alabama counties Thursday turned up truckloads of explosives and weapons, including 130 grenades, an improvised rocket launcher and 2,500 rounds of ammunition belonging to the small, but mightily armed, Alabama Free Militia.

Six alleged members of the Free Militia also were arrested by federal authorities and are being held without bond.

Investigators said the DeKalb County-based group had not made any specific threats or devised any plots, but was targeted for swift dismantling because of its heavy firepower. The militia, which called itself the Naval Militia at one point, had enough armament to outfit a small army. …

… The massive operation forced the closing of Collinsville High School on U.S. 11 because of traffic concerns. In Trussville, authorities rented a U-Haul truck to cart away the load of explosives and weapons from a house.

Agents encountered booby traps at one site. They found trip wires and two hand grenades rigged as booby traps at the Collinsville camper home of 46-year-old Raymond Dillard, who holds titles of both militia major and fugitive from justice on an unrelated federal case in Mobile.

“We were prepared,” Cavanaugh said. “We suspect booby traps with these types of groups.”

Arrested and detained in federal custody were Dillard, also known as Jeff Osborne, 46, of Collinsville; Adam Lynn Cunningham, 41, of Collinsville; Bonnell Hughes, 57, of Crossville; Randall Garrett Cole, 22, of Gadsden; James Ray McElroy, 20, of Collinsville; and Michael Wayne Bobo, 30, of Trussville.

None of these people are named Mohammed or al-Something; therefore, they are not terrorists.

Authorities wouldn’t pinpoint a leader, but said Dillard called himself the major. In addition to the booby traps, authorities recovered a long gun and a pistol from his home.

Recovered from Cunningham’s Collinsville home were stolen commercial fireworks, improvised hand grenades, fuse assemblies and a half-dozen guns. At Hughes’ Crossville home, agents found 100 improvised hand grenades, 70 improvised hand grenades fired from the 37 mm rocket launch, a submachine gun and two silencers.

An SKS rifle was found at McElroy’s home.

In Jefferson County, authorities said they had to rent a truck to handle the bomb-making material from Bobo’s home, as well as 2,500 rounds of ammunition and 12 guns.

The 30-year-old Bobo still lives with his parents and works for their pest-control company. Why am I not surprised?

But it’s a real relief to find out these guys aren’t Muslims, huh? Otherwise they might be dangerous or something.

    This story from today’s paper completely ignores the “T” word:

    Militia raid targets weapons
    Explosives, ammo found; 6 men arrested

    Simultaneous raids carried out in four Alabama counties Thursday turned up truckloads of explosives and weapons, including 130 grenades, an improvised rocket launcher and 2,500 rounds of ammunition belonging to the small, but mightily armed, Alabama Free Militia.

    Six alleged members of the Free Militia also were arrested by federal authorities and are being held without bond.

    In an NYTimes op-ed yesterday, Bob Herbert wrote a good one about America’s addiction to violence. Among the statistics that should be shouted out to the housetops is that since the assassinations of RFK and MLK in 1968, more Americans have been killed here by guns than in all the wars since the founding of the Republic. Over TWO MILLION!

  3. VJB  •  Apr 27, 2007 @2:11 pm

    Oops–should have said ONE MILLION. Not so bad; nothing to see here folks. Herbert has another stat. Bonechilling.

    “A study released a few years ago by the Harvard School of Public Health compared firearm mortality rates among youngsters 5 to 14 years old in the five states with the highest rates of gun ownership with those in the five states with the lowest rates.

    “The results were chilling. Children in the states with the highest rates of gun ownership were 16 times as likely to die from an accidental gunshot wound, nearly seven times as likely to commit suicide with a gun, and more than three times as likely to be murdered with a firearm.

    “Only a lunatic could seriously believe that more guns in more homes is good for America’s children. “

    I’m sure there will be a press conference from the Attorney General and Sec. of Homeland Security any moment. (I mean, those guys in Miami didn’t even have weapons, and look at the coverage they got.)

    (crickets chirping)

    Oh well, I’m sure that VP Cheney will be on the news telling us what a ‘serious threat’ has just been averted. Real soon now.

    Only a lunatic could seriously believe that more guns in more homes is good for America’s children.

    I can well imagine what my college campus would’ve been like, back in the day, had everyone been packing heat, as some gun nuts advocated after Virginia Tech.

    How about a war on purveyors of illegal weapons. Afterall, we’ve had a war on drugs, poverty, crime…At the same time, how about releasing prisoners held for possession of illegal drugs and replacing them with people who deal in illegal weapons. Never had a war on them. Got to wonder why.

  7. VJB  •  Apr 27, 2007 @3:46 pm

    My older son got his doctorate at VT a few years ago and says that students carrying guns were not so uncommon. That’s scary, too.

  8. Swami  •  Apr 27, 2007 @6:12 pm

    Alabama, militia,improvised hand grenades, Bobo….I’ll wait for the dust to settle before I expound on this story. Sounds like another attacking the Brooklyn bridge with a bernz-o-matic story.

    Here’s more on the non-terror group: http://snipurl.com/1ijas

    This was stuck end of the story:
    Dunn said Dillard told him “to be ready for a war between the whites and the Mexicans.”

    “He seemed like the type to revive the KKK or like he was trying to make the South rise again,” he said. “He told us he knew how to make bombs because he was a Marine.”

    If the “terrorists” aren’t Muslim, then there is nothing to see here, move along, or get a one way ticket to Club Gitmo for a few years of enhanced interrogation techniques..
    At least they aren’t following us home……except for the white ones that are already here. But they don’t count.

    How can you fault someone for looking after their own interests and protecting themselves. Do we arrest them just because they arm themselves? What happened to the freedom we used to have in America?

  12. maha  •  Jun 27, 2007 @8:50 am

    Henry — are you serious? Protecting oneself is one thing, but organizing a private army outside the law was never a “freedom” that American law allowed. Not ever.
