#NotAllMuslims Plot Dirty Bomb Attack In Indonesia

Font Size:

As you read the following news item, keep in mind that Indonesia is 87% Muslim. This means that not only are the foiled bombers Muslims, but their victims would be primarily Muslim as well. That means the two cancel each other out, and Islam can’t the motive. Do the math, people.

Tom Allard and Agustinus Beo Da Costa, Reuters:

Indonesian militants planned to detonate a radioactive dirty bomb, security sources said, highlighting the rising ambitions of extremists to wreak destruction in the world’s largest Muslim-majority nation…

The three counter-terrorism sources, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the militants had hoped to transform low-grade radioactive Thorium 232 (Th-232) into deadly Uranium 233 (U-233).

The highly radioactive uranium would be combined with the powerful home-made explosive triacetone triperoxide (TATP) to create a “nuclear bomb”, according to an instruction manual used by the militants and reviewed by Reuters.

Well, that’s reassuring.

One of these nutbags says that learning out to kill a bunch of people with homemade dirty bombs is “every Muslim’s duty.” Other religions just have charity bake sales and stuff. That’s why nobody cares when you offend them.
