Fire Reported at Islamic Center in Oregon (Somali terrorist attended this mosque)
Fox News ^ | 11/28/2010 | fox news

Posted on 11/28/2010 4:47:09 PM PST by tobyhill

Someone set fire to an Islamic center on Sunday, two days after a man who worshipped there was accused of trying to blow up a van full of explosives during Portland's Christmas tree lighting ceremony. Other Muslims fear it could be the first volley of misplaced retribution.

The charges against Mohamed Osman Mohamud, a Somali-born 19-year-old who was caught in a federal sting operation, are testing tolerance in a state that has been largely accepting of Muslims. Muslims who know the suspect say they are shocked by the allegations against him and that they had given them no hint of falling into radicalism.

Islam is at war with us but I don’t think we are supposed to fight back.

I mean...that would be wrong, right?

I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s an inside job to distract attention from the fact they harbored a terrorist.

1. It could be that someone is sick to death of our PC attitude toward illegals and violent religions (but pretending that they aren’t violent).

2. It was a Mooslem trying to stir things up.

3. Just a deranged idiot.

You mean OREGONIANS are not happy that someone of a certain religious bent tried to blow Portlanders up?

Dude.

The writer makes it seem as though the Somali suspect was only guilty of attempting to destroy a motor vehicle. I think it would be better to say that the Somali gent was accused of attempting to detonate a bomb with the intent to kill.

I do not think this is misplaced. The first thing we should have seen and heard yesterday equal to the news reporting this attempt at mass murder is a denouncing from this exact Islamic center and also all representatives of the Muslim religion in America. Gee. I missed it. Why because it was not there. Misplaced? No. Retribution? Yes.

Misplaced? Hell, every mosque in America oughtta be burned to the ground after 9-11. Those bastards attacked us, and not one of 'em stood up to say they were sorry.

F'em.

I don’t approve of it because innocent people might be injured, but I fail to see how it’s “misplaced.” Mosques are nothing but terrorist training grounds.

Deep inside the bowels of Eric Holders "Justice Department" you just know they're cranking up a wide-spread, far-reaching, Constitution violating investigation. But that New Black Panther's voting intimidation case ... that was nothing. Nothing at all.

Did everyone note where the fire took place and how surgical it was? Whomever set it carefully avoided the "worship areas":

There were also no injuries in Sunday's fire, which burned 80 percent of the center's office but did not spread to worship areas or any other rooms, said Yosof Wanly, the center's imam.

INSIDE JOB.

Inside job, amazing how all records seem to have been destroyed and sympathy redirected toward the mosque
instead of the potential victims of this mall attack.

Disinformation/relocation.

I wouldn’t trust that Imam as far as I could throw him.

I have said it before and I repeat myself.

Americans are not going to behave like Israeli’s when the bombiongs and killings start here.

So far America has been relatively safe because we really haven’t been hit all that hard sionce 911.

When incidents of bus explosions and killing star appearing regulargy, Americans are going to start dragging everything that looks Middle eastern out for neck tie parties.

Roosevelt knew this, It is one reason he had Japanese interned.

I think it could well be an inside job, as you say, to deflect fault away from themselves and make themselves the victims.

Probably burned their own place down. Keep the feds from getting info and they could blame Christians for it. The propaganda media will pick it up and blame us too. A win win for em.

Here's the first clue it wasn't me: When I decide to take out a mosque, the building is left standing. It just becomes vacant. And available for sale. Or demolition.

Fire is the tool of simpletons and drama queens.

Muslims burning, blowing up, and attacking mosques? Good heavens, there's no precedent for that...except everywhere and all the time.

Interesting that it is being reported as part of the news story...but, the damage was contained to office areas and did NOT affect the ‘worship area.’

Color me NOT surprised, but an inside job, destroying records possibly?

Ooops...guilty of NOT reading entire thread before posting. I concur, 100 percent...inside job to destroy records and connections to the ‘ute’ involved and it garners sympathy ‘look our faith is being attacked’ from the numbminded left.

But...some on the left, after all their Kumbaya moments, might have actually been in that crowd, at that tree lighting ceremony—with their families—and might not be feeling so ‘diverse’ today.

It's so transparent, it's silly. But it always seems to work, doesn't it?

You're assuming those on the Left possess logical brains to begin with ;-)

And destroy evidence!

My first thought as well. From what I've read about this, the fire was in a single office. Doesn't sounds at all like a firebombing, or something done by someone who has finally decided to pay some back.

The room needs to be very carefully preserved and checked out very carefully. I wouldn't be suprised at all for the arson investigator to determin the fire started in a trash can.
