the backlash grows

cnn is reporting that a florida man has been arrested "after police found more than 15 homemade explosive devices in his home [and he had] allegedly drafted a detailed plan to blow up an islamic educational center, according to court documents filed in the case friday."

one dr. robert j. goldstein apparently had plans to blow up mosques around florida, as he had a list of 50 islamic worship centers around the tampa bay-st. petersburg area, and other locations around the state.

"attached to the criminal complaint against goldstein was a three-page 'mission template' for an attack on an unidentified 'islam education center,' which included a map of the center showing where bombs would be placed. the document said the objective was to 'kill all rags at this islamic education center -- zero residual presence -- maximum effect."

ok folks. we are totally in favor of getting osama bin laden, and destroying al qaeda. we are even open to listening to reasons to get saddam hussein out of there. and we will cheer every time a proven terrorist is hauled off to jail. but let's not turn this into a race war.

"deputies also found books on how to make explosives and devices that could be used to explode bombs by remote control, along with homemade c-4 (a type of explosive), hand grenades and homemade military mines, the sheriff's department said. authorities also recovered 30 to 40 weapons, including semi-automatic weapons and a .50-caliber sniper rifle, the sheriff's department said.

remember, guns don't kill people. people with guns kill people. but, on a lighter note, the teddy bear turns 100!
