Minor Fire Set At Mosque Where Portland Terrorist Worshipped So We're the Real Terrorists Or Something

A few points.

Genghis speculates that this fire might actually have been set by a member of the Religion of Peace -- certainly it's possible. That sort of thing happens a lot. Aggrieved minority stages "hate crime" to garner sympathy... and license.

No evidence that that's what happened, but then, no evidence really running in any direction, so I'm not crossing that one out.

Muslims at the mosque, meanwhile, are worried about... terrorism.

"I've prayed for my family and friends, because obviously if someone was deliberate to do this, what's to stop them from coming to our homes and our schools?" said Mohamed Alyagouri, a 31-year-old father of two, who worships at the center. "I'm afraid for my children getting harassed from their teachers, maybe from their friends."

Welcome to the party, pal. I don't like terrorism directed at anyone but I do appreciated pointed irony.

One point that can't be forgotten is that there's a pretty decent chance that his fellow worshippers actually tipped the FBI to his hot talk of terrorism.

A little more irony: Portland is one of those jackass liberal cities that resisted Bush's anti-terrorism efforts to save America or something.

In 2005, leaders in Portland, Oregon, angry at the Bush administration's conduct of the war on terror, voted not to allow city law enforcement officers to participate in a key anti-terror initiative, the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force. On Friday, that task force helped prevent what could have been a horrific terrorist attack in Portland. Now city officials say they might re-think their participation in the task force -- because Barack Obama is in the White House.

...

In the Mohamud case, it appears that Portland's anti-law enforcement stand might actually have influenced Mohamud's decision to undertake an attack in the city. According to the FBI affidavit, the undercover agents asked whether he worried that law enforcement would stop him. "In Portland?" Mohamud replied. "Not really. They don't see it as a place where anything will happen. People say, you know, why, anybody want to do something in Portland, you know, it's on the west coast, it's in Oregon, and Oregon's, like you know, nobody ever thinks about it."

Among the wisest bits of advice for liberals Bush offered was Just because you're not interested in terrorism doesn't mean terrorists aren't interested in you.

Of course, they ignore it. They're so lovey-dovey and hippy-dippy no terrorist would ever consider bombing their precious little hug-huddles.
