Authorities React to Oregon Bomb Plot by Fretting About Islamophobia

In liberal Oregon, how do the authorities react to a Muslim attempt to murder hundreds of innocent families at a Christmas tree-lighting ceremony? But protecting Muslims, naturally:

Patrols around mosques and other Islamic sites in Portland have been stepped up as Muslim leaders expressed fears of retribution, days after a Somali-American man was accused of trying to blow up a van full of explosives during the city’s Christmas tree lighting ceremony.

Portland Mayor Sam Adams said Sunday that he beefed up protection around mosques “and other facilities that might be vulnerable to knuckle-headed retribution” after hearing of the bomb plot.

In the fantasy world inhabited by liberals, every Muslim attempt to kill us is more evidence of how violent we are. Religion of Peaceniks at the Islamic center in Corvallis, where Mohamed Osman Mohamud worshiped his bloodthirsty god and where a fire conveniently broke out Sunday, are only too happy to play along with this farce.

Yosof Wanly, the center’s imam, said he was thinking about temporarily relocating his family because of the possibility of hate crimes.

The foiled atrocity shines a light on the wickedness not only of normal Americans, but of the FBI:

Omar Jamal, first secretary for the Somali mission to the United Nations in New York City, told The Associated Press his office has received “thousands of calls” from Somalis in the United States who are concerned about tactics used by federal agents in the sting operation against Mohamud. … Jamal said there is concern in the Somali community that Mohamud was “lured into an illegal act.” …many Somalis in the United States are wondering whether Mohammud’s rights were violated by federal agents, he said. …

The FBI affidavit said it was Mohamud who picked the target of the bomb plot, that he was warned several times about the seriousness of his plan, that women and children could die, and that he could back out.

But no doubt Mohamud would have devoted his life to singing Kumbayah at peace rallies if only the FBI hadn’t led him astray. In any case, his eagerness to murder the innocent for Allah pales in comparison with the unconscionable Islamophobia of those who oppose building a victory mosque at Ground Zero.

Mohamed Osman Mohamud: oppressed victim of the FBI.
