At least 13 people were injured Wednesday morning after an explosion engulfed a Minnesote grocer and mosque.

Police are investigating the cause of the explosion.

The UPI reported:

At least 13 people were hospitalized Wednesday when an explosion and fire engulfed a building in Minneapolis, officials said.

Minneapolis Fire Chief John Fruetel said six of the 13 people taken to area hospitals were in critical condition, KSTP-TV, St. Paul, reported.

No cause had been determined, but Greg Nelson, supervisor of the Minneapolis Emergency Communications Center, told the Star Tribune in Minneapolis the building likely would be a total loss.

KSTP said it was told the building was a community center that housed a grocery store and a mosque. WCCO-TV, Minneapolis, said the building had apartments. Fire and rescue crews were battling a three-alarm fire at West Bank Grocery and Pharmacy, near the University of Minnesota campus.

At least two media outlets said people climbed or jumped out of windows to escape the fire. Unconfirmed reports indicated second and third floors of the building had collapsed, KARE-TV, Minneapolis, reported.

The Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MN) called on state and federal law enforcement authorities to investigate the suspicious fire.

Gasoline in a kerosene heater? Used to happen all the time to foreigners in Japan when I lived there.

No...it was the cops.

Move

"MOVE or the MOVE Organization is a Philadelphia-based black liberation group founded by John Africa. MOVE was described by CNN as "a loose-knit, mostly black group whose members all adopted the surname Africa, advocated a 'back-to-nature' lifestyle and preached against technology".[1] In addition, MOVE members were vegans and passionate supporters of animal rights. The group lived communally and frequently engaged in public demonstrations related to issues they deemed important."

"In 1985 the group made national news when police dropped a bomb on the Osage house from a helicopter in an attempt to end an armed impasse. The explosion and ensuing fire killed 11 people, including five children and the group's leader, John Africa. Only two occupants survived—Ramona, an adult and Birdie, a child. In addition, approximately 60 other (non MOVE-affiliated) homes were destroyed as the entire block burned."

I suspect some bomb making going on in the mosque. I wonder how many other mosques are building arsenals for the grand jihad?

"Didn’t the Black Panthers blow themselves up 30 or 40 years ago in Philadelphia?"

In March 6, 1970, during preparations for the bombing of a Non-Commissioned Officers’ (NCO) dance at the Fort Dix U.S. Army base and for Butler Library at Columbia University, there was an explosion in a Greenwich Village house when the nail bomb being constructed prematurely detonated for unknown reasons. Weather Underground members Diana Oughton, Ted Gold, and Terry Robbins died in the explosion. Cathy Wilkerson and Kathy Boudin escaped unharmed. The Weather Underground was led by Bill Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn, Jeff Jones, and Celia Sojourn.

We told them. If you don’t put pig carcasses in the refrigerator right away, they will explode. Butttt, noooo. Did you think they would listen to us?

I can just see Joe Flaherty and John Candy discussing this incident.

Most people use electric space heaters. Such space heaters cause fires, not explosions. Unless you try to use them in your bomb making rooms. Then all bets are off, and you are subject to premature jihadification. In that case, no virgins for you.

I lived outside of Minneapolis for 10 years, so the article was of interest. However, it’s being misrepresented as a mosque. It was a grocery store and apartment building, NEAR A MOSQUE. I really think someone’s trying to create a situation in the reporting of this. Go to Startribune.com for local news coverage.

We had a similar fire at the Arab Center in our town several years back. Yup, insurance. The two men were found along side the road so badly burned that they couldn’t continue driving back to Detroit area. I think they died.
