AFP Sweden on Sunday probed two bomb blasts that killed a person in central Stockholm as a "terrorist crime", as an Al-Qaeda-linked website claimed one of its militants had carried out the suicide attack.

Apparently the bomber was kicked out of his local mosque in 2007, and publically condemned in the mosque for holding opinions that was considered incompatible with living in a moder society.

Sky news

Once again, people different from us confound and annoy us by being a basically sensible lot.

The Swedes don't have their priorities right. They should lay off Assange and go after individuals who actually present a threat to society.
They put out an arrest warrent on the man for rape.

Some insignificant brainwashed a-hole blows himself up and you think he is the "whirlwind"?

Those rape charges are very spurious and dubious. If what he did was rape than every male in Sweden (and worldwide) is guilty of rape. Can you say "politically motivated"?

Swedish law enforcement obviously has very screwed up priorities. Al-Abdaly and others like him get left alone. Although the USA also ignores people who present an imminent and severe threat in the name of going after people for petty stuff often on dubious and sometimes politically motivated charges.

The jihadist was a university graduate who was living in England until two weeks ago. Sweden suicide bomber: Taimur Abdulwahab al-Abdaly was living in Britain - Telegraph Once again we see that poverty is not the motivator for terrorism, as the mainstream media would like us to believe.

Poverty isn't always the motivator for terrorism, just like it isn't always the motivator for gang crimes, or many other types of crimes.

There are always exceptions.

It urged "mujahideen," or Islamic fighters, to rise up in Sweden and in Europe, the news agency said.

Once again, highlighting the fact that the world is at war with Islamists.

Ironically the same can be said of our very own party hardliners.
Correct. Who profits from strife tin?? Global citizens perspective we're being held hostage by competing brands of fire destroying civilization as we know it. One gang vs another on global scale.
Explaination why Tea is instructed to animate themselves throwing money bomb smear campaigns leveled at moderate repubs's and moderate dems? Re-install authoritarianism. Re-install fascism.

So long as everyone is fighting believing the other is persecuting them, the hemorrhage of cash off our shores continues & more newspapers will be sold. Wag the dog. Tea brags on in dozens of threads about FOX 'ratings' representing the majority, systematically changing the very definition of the constitution from a soapbox sponsored by Koch and Murdoch. The supreme (kangaroo, LITERALLY!) court decision of public opinion whipped to delusional madness. They have no idea what being an American actually means anymore.

Psy-ops are being perpetrated upon the masses through media. I do not believe Assange is the enemy of truth. Who will allow themselves to be the enemy of truth?

Hmmm I recall a self identified CHRISTIAN declaring a CHRISTIAN war against MUSLIMS. I heard that voice coming from the American conservative camp. The puppet on stage whose words and mouth did not match was named Bush. Neither do the words and deeds of self identified Christians match. Jesus did not animate himself in the world as the pied piper of retribution.

So who are all these people calling themselves one thing and doing another? Who destroyed the conservative party from within?
