Two men taken off a Chicago-to-Amsterdam United Airlines flight in the Netherlands have been charged by Dutch police with “preparation of a terrorist attack,” U.S. law enforcement officials tell ABC News.
U.S. officials said the two appeared to be traveling with what were termed “mock bombs” in their luggage. “This was almost certainly a dry run, a test,” said one senior law enforcement official…
The men were identified as Ahmed Mohamed Nasser al Soofi, of Detroit, MI, and Hezem al Murisi, the officials said.
I knew it. Mormons.
All kidding aside, what’s up with this anti-Muslim bigotry? I’ve long advocated the “Not All” rule for these types of stories:
Not All Muslims Arrested on ‘Preparation of a Terrorist Attack’ in Amsterdam
Not All Muslims Kill 14 in Fort Hood Shooting Rampage
Not All Muslims Put Bombs in Underpants and Book Transatlantic Flight
Not All Muslims Fly Planes into World Trade Center, Murdering Thousands
But instead we have this 21st Century lynching party. Do you really want to live in a world where the cops can arrest guys just because they happen to be Muslim and happen to be carrying stuff that looks like bombs? And I’m sure the arresting officers will deny up and down that they’re racists.
Be advised, America: This is what happens when you let your drunks wander into mosques and pee on stuff. This is your fault.
