SC: Two Muslims apprehended with bombs and bomb-making materials, FBI says no known link to terror
Jihad Watch ^ | August 6, 2007

Posted on 08/06/2007 8:07:23 AM PDT by 3AngelaD

Goose Creek - Two men are being held in the Berkeley County Detention Center after police find explosive making devices in their car. The quantity of explosive making materials in that vehicle is unclear. The FBI (website) reports that there is no known link to terrorism. The Berkeley County Sheriff's Office believes that among materials in the car's trunk were a bomb and bomb making materials that include chemicals, fuses, and igniters.

The men 21-year-old Yousef Megahed and 24-year-old Ahmed Mohamed were pulled over Saturday evening during a routine traffic stop near Myers Road and Highway 176. Few details about the suspects are known at this time. They are believed to be students at a Florida college. They are of Middle Eastern descent and are not US citizens. Neither man has been charged, but charges are expected Monday. A press conference will be held in Berkeley County on Monday morning. Possession of unlawful explosives is among the potential charges. Officials are not at this time releasing any additional information. The Berkeley County Sheriff's office may confirm what exactly was found in that trunk during Monday's press conference.

Muslim college students from Middle East plus bomb-making materials doesn't, to the FBI, add up to links with terrorism?

No. Because Michael Chertoff’s Magic Eight Ball Head came up with “try again later” when they shook it.

No link to terrorism. They were going to do a benefit fireworks display for the local orphanage. Poor muslims, always the victim...

Why, they were just taking advantage of the fine, low-priced fireworks one can find off any interstate throughout the South.

Yeah, that’s it.</sarc>

That is soooo racist!

Cue Ball Head would be more accurate.

So they have no known links. So they're free-lancers. So what? They sure have a link now.

I think you may have misread the statement: "The FBI (website) reports that there is no known link to terrorism."

I understand that to mean that the perps haven't (yet) been linked to any known groups or cells.

You people need to learn politicospeach.

They said there were no KNOWN links to terrorism. That means they have no evidence at this time that would tie these two directly to any KNOWN terrorist group.

Unfortunately since all Muslims have been called to conduct Jihad there need not be any direct link to any group at all. There are millions of guys like these who are willing and able to answer the call as free lancers

Relax dummies.

What the FBI said was absolutely correct: truthful. Right now, they do not know about these two idiots or the links they have.

Some of y’all need to stop going for the rope a dope all the time.

Let’em investigate it for Pete’s sake.

My hat’s off to you. It looks like you are the first one on this thread to point out the operative word in the statement.

I get the impression that FR is slipping. It used to be that stuff like this got quickly parsed and analyzed. Now most people just react without really thinking the information through.

This is always the case. Awhile back in Norman OK (just south of OKC) an OU student who had visited a local Muslim society frequently and had a Pakistani roommate blew himself up just outside of a packed football stadium—after being denied entrance because of his backpack. The roommate was found to have a one way ticket to a ME country. But it wasn’t terrorism. Nope, just one of those wacky kids from OU.

Remember, when Richard Reid tried to blow his plane up with explosives in his shoe, the very FIRST thing out of the officials mouths was that it “wasn’t terrorism.”

I guess it never is.

Let me see if I have this right. Muslims (those people who want to kill the infidels which be us) plus Bomb (isn't that the thing that goes BOOM?) making materials (the stuff to make bombs, right?) and there is NO connection to terrorism. Are these the facts ma-am? I now know I'm living in the Twilight Zone. Someone stole the senses of the United States and left us floating into nothingness.

In my book, Muslim college students with explosives in their car is a de facto link to terrorism. They don’t have to be carry an official Al Quada ID card to be terrorists.

” no known link to terrorism”

Excuse my bias and “hate crime” mentality, but to me, they’re Muslim, they’re terrorists.

How did they get into this country? Who let them in? Why?

How stupid or gutless do we have to be before we wake up and stop facilitating our own suicide.

Note to left wing congress and Dhim O Craps Rats, we have enemies, there are people out there who want to kill us all. Yoohoo, Congress, wake up! Get real, get a dose of reality.

Sound reason? Hardly. In what we like to call “reality” around here, it is well known that a terrorist is not always connected in a tangible way to known groups or organizations. A terrorist can commit an act of terrorism on his own, and the people are just as dead as if he’d had a direct line to Osama himself.

Thus, it makes no difference if there was a “known” connection. They were going to blow people up, with or without connections. That’s terrorism.
