LONDON Five men were arrested Friday in connection with a suspected terrorist plot targeting the pope, according to reports

However, citing sources Sky News reported that the suspects were of Arabic origin
The Amish again?
Beat me by seconds!
I was going to start taking odds that the suspects were Muslim but we all knew the answer so it would have been a waste of time.
Once again the ‘religion of peace’ reveals itself.
WHAT? Members of the religion of peace?
I was shocked to log on FR and see that it was NOT YET in Breaking -
Yet another Serious sign that things could spin out of control
NO telling how obama will spin this ?
Islam at it again!
Never seen that coming in a million years.
I got the FoxNews Breaking email and then checked FR.
So that’s when I started cranking out the post and even checked again before I hit the post button but we must have it it within 3 seconds of each other. ;)
I’ve noticed fewer threads and comments lately. Not sure what that means or if FReepers are just busy doing other things.
The article states that they weren’t UK citizens, and ranged in age from 20 - 55.
The Mods are also slower these days. ;)
What’s that about landing at Heathrow and a third world country?
Something tells me this Pope will not die a ‘natural death’.
One of the religion of peace adherers will pull a Gavrilo Princip, and all hell will break loose.
No, probably the Mennonites or Budhists this time.
Always please use proper headlines and links. It is far better to have a real thread in Breaking News, as opposed to one that amounts to a Tweet.
According to British newspapers, there are no “Arabs” in Great Britain, only “Asians.” Odds are good that the next report will describe the subjects as “five Asians.” So I’m thinking that it is likely that the five men are a Buddhist, a Hindu, a Sikh, a Shintoist and a Confucian.
Just remember, these are radicals who do not in any way represent Islam by doing what the Koran actually says.
He will say “The British police acted stupidly”
10-4 and top of the morning to you! ;)
Richard Dawkins and a bunch of his postgrad students?
Foxnews reporting men of “Arab” ethnicity! Go figure!
Agreed - And thus I “copied and pasted” the exact headline words at MSNBC website (at least what were there at that moment???)
mooslims, you say? I guess they just wanted to get the Pope to a peaceful place...his death. mooslims...peace-loving and friendly. They all want to help you get to peace.
Live BBC news
Radical Protestants, right?
Maybe here’s a reason:
Was there going to be some kind of ecumenical meeting in London today?
Were any of their names Mohammad?
MSNBC has Just re-edited the title at link to read:
“Reports: 5 arrested over plot targeting pope”
And they removed from the article the report of “arab men”...?
They were all foreign-born Algerians, apparently, although the plot itself is thought to have orginated in the UK.
For some reason Christians of various denominations have always pointed fingers at each other as being the “Whore of Babylon”. Sorry to differ, but for the last 15 years of dealing with Islamofascism, I would have to say that we are staring the Whore right in the eye. This type of incident confirms my beliefs.
AAA!!! Algerian Amish Alert!!!
Thanks for the update
We need to stop calling them radical and start calling them 'Devout Muslims'.
When you look at the big picture, it's more a difference of ceremony than anything else. Compare the different branches of Christianity with each other and then with muslims or atheists. See how great that contrast is.
Whew. I was worried it might be those danged Lutherans again.
Perhaps they can build a bridge and reach out by allowing an islamic cultural center to be built at Vatican City.
Oh! Care to make a friendly wager on the outcome of the UConn/TU clash tomorrow? $10 donation to FR by the defeated party?
A little off-topic question. Why isn’t “pope” capitalized? Seems to me it should.
Why didn’t you capitalize Pope when you posted. You should know better.
I wonder if there will be as much world outrage over muslims trying to kill the worlds most prominent christian religious leader as there was over one american contemplating burning the koran?
I am guessing that VRWCTexan simply copied and pasted the headline text from MSNBC. They (MSNBC) probably did not capitalize “Pope” according to some new left-wing, PC editorial rules.
I looked for it immediately too. Thanks for posting this.
