Like Clockwork: Muslim Leaders Fear 'Backlash' Over Portland Bomb Plot

Once again, the Muslims can’t lie straight in bed:

Shifting the focus: arson attack against Oregon jihadist’s mosque

“We are Americans. We support this society,” he said. “We’re Muslims also, but … from an Islamic perspective, any intent to do any harm to anyone–man, woman or child– is against the Koran.”

Just hours before a thwarted bombing attempt at Portland’s annual holiday tree-lighting ceremony, leaders of the Portland Rizwan Mosque handed out pro-peace fliers blocks away.

Not to worry, the FBI is onto it:

FBI spokeswoman Beth Anne Steele said it’s standard for the agency to become involved in attacks on religious groups, but that the possible connection between the fire and the arrest of Mohamud makes their involvement even more important.

“The FBI would not tolerate any retaliation on the Muslim community as a result of that arrest,” Steele said. “We have an ongoing relationship with the Muslim leaders in Corvallis. This is of high concern to them.”…

The FBI is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information that leads to the identification, arrest and conviction of the person or people responsible for the fire….

“We have made it quite clear that the FBI will not tolerate any kind of retribution or attack on the Muslim community,” Balizan said. “We are working very closely with the leadership at the mosque. We will find the person responsible for this attack and bring the full force of the federal justice system to bear. In the meantime, the FBI remains absolutely committed to protecting each and every American’s right to live, work and worship in a free and safe society.”… (under Islam of course, you dumb shmuck…!)

Later the same night, mosque leaders were taking calls from the FBI. Mohamed Osman Mohamud, a 19-year-old Somali immigrant, had just been arrested on accusations that he was responsible for the attempted bombing.

“They feared some reprisal would be possible. Obviously, that’s what we saw in Corvallis,” said Richard Reno, president of the Rizwan Mosque. “They wanted to give us as much of a heads-up as possible.”

In Corvallis, an arsonist set fire to the Salman Alfarisi Islamic Center, where Mohamud occasionally attended services. No one was hurt, but 80 percent of the center’s office was burned.

  1. Once again Islam has to make out ITS the victim!!! when in reality they are all taught to hate us at their mosques

  2. Fear of backlash spreads almost as fast as islamic rage … first Corvallis, now Seattle …

    [Abdul Karim says he worries the flames of anti-Islam extremism may spread to Seattle after the arson at a Corvallis mosque overnight.

    “Some people crazy,” he says. “They want to give bad name to Islam.”]

    * “Some people crazy,” says Hannibal Lecter. “They want to give bad name to cannibalism.”

  3. “Shock” comes to Prineville, Oregon – taqiyya was already there:
    High Desert Muslims React To Bomb Plot
    Islamic Community Leaders Say Islam Teaches Peace

    * islamic peace teachings:

    8:12 Remember thy Lord inspired the angels (with the message): “I am with you: give firmness to the Believers: I will instil terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers: smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off them.”

    It Just Isn’t Christmas without a Muslim Bombing
    By Daniel Greenfield Monday, November 29, 2010

    [Mistletoe. Egg nog. And now Muslim terrorism. Last year’s Christmas bomber was an African Muslim who stuffed his underwear full of plastic explosive and tried to detonate it on Flight 253.

    This year it’s another African Muslim who tried to get an early start on Christmas terror by trying to car bomb a Christmas tree-lighting ceremony. ]

  5. An “inner office” got burnt? Who had the keys? Also, this Islamic centre had fallen under suspicion.. and is going to be part of the investigation.. it is a little convenient that 80% of the office was destroyed, isn’t it? There could have been emails and evidence of extremist activity.. where did the funding come from? This may well have been an inside job as Muslims have previous fo setting fire or vandalising their own facilitues.. there have been similar incidents in London, Sydney and France designed to create a non-existent “enemy” for the liberal controlled media to get worked up about..

  6. Considering that the office was on the first floor, with no mention of a B&E, there’s a good chance that someone had a spare set of keys..

  7. Retaliation, my ass! The fire was set from inside the office around 2’ish in the morning.

    Who had access to that office?

    And how convenient that the fire damaged only the office (and, more importantly, the RECORDS contained within) while the mosque and prayer-area and prayer-books were spared. Why-the-fawk are the media and “liberal” squawkers avoiding attentionb to these details???

  8. I’ve already seen this first hand in my hometown here in Minnesota. One friend told me when he invited some local Somalis to his church, one of them responded…

    “We hate you Christians, we’d kill you if we could”

    It is just a matter of time before they act on their Somali brand of Islamic Jihad here in the USA. We already have a community of over 2,000 of them here in my hometown of 25,000. How many of them are willing live out Jihad here? I hope they realize this area has a huge hunting population armed to the teeth and experienced with all manner of firearms. One guy I just trained in at work has a right conceal permit and has his own literal armory of every gun imaginable.

    If they try it here it will all be over quick…very quick.
