More Islamophobia

Remember when the media accused all Americans of Islamophobia?
A Somali-born teenager plotted "a spectacular show" of terrorism for months, saying he didn't mind that children would die if he bombed a crowded Christmas tree-lighting ceremony, according to a law-enforcement official and court documents.

Federal agents in a sting operation arrested the 19-year-old just as he tried blowing up a van he believed was loaded with explosives at a crowded Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Portland, authorities said.

. . . Yelling "Allahu Akbar!" -- Arabic for "God is great!" -- Mohamud tried to kick agents and police af ter he was taken into custody . . . Mohamud is quoted as saying he picked Portland because "they don't see it as a place where anything would happen." In the affidavit, Mohamud is quoted as saying "it's going to be a fireworks show", and that his goal in the bomb plot was "I want everyone to leave dead or injured."

You know that it's only a matter of time before we are told by the mainstream media that public tree lighting ceremonies are an Islamophobic provocation to peace loving youth.
