Terror Plot in Malaysia Busted

(Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia) Ten people have been arrested by anti-terror officers for an alleged plot to blow up two places of worship. The group was led by Islamic scholar and Lashkar-e-Toiba member Aiman Al Datak, a 39-year-old Malaysian.

Federal police sources told the New Straits Times that Aiman was linked to al-Qaeda and was on a mission to recruit members for the international terror group and Jemaah Islamiah.

The others in this group included three other Syrians, two Yemenis, two Nigerians, a Jordanian and a Malaysian. The nine foreigners were deported to their home countries in April, where they have been detained. One of the nine is Aiman’s son, Mohamed Hozifa.

Interestingly, the arrested individuals plotted to blow up places of worship arguably with intentions of inflicting serious property damage and killing and maiming as many worshippers as possible. All the while, there is no conceivable way to link the plot to Mohammad cartoons, Israel, George Bush, Palestine, Geert Wilders, burqa bans or any other of the multitude of excuses used to blame Muslim violence on Western civilization.

This episode is clearly a snapshot of the religion of peace when nobody else is around.
