Florida Mosque Bombed; Possible Domestic Terrorism
When crimes committed by Muslims occurred, such as Fort Hood, the underwear bomber, or the Times Square bomber, there was a great rush to call it “terrorism” and there were immediate calls for racial profiling. Now the FBI is investigating a pipe-bombing at the Jacksonville Islamic Center of Northeast Florida, and there is a videotape featuring a possible suspect. (h/t Karoli at Crooks and Liars)
“It was a dangerous device, and had anybody been around it they could have been seriously injured or killed,” says Special Agent James Casey. “We want to sort of emphasize the seriousness of the thing and not let people believe that this was just a match and a little bit of gasoline that was spread around.”
Casey says surveillance video from the Islamic Center shows the arsonist carrying gasoline and the pipe bomb. When the explosive went off, parts of it were found 100 feet away on 9A.
