Yes, this is real. It happened 10 days ago, and the national media didn’t report it – only local media did.
On May 10th, a man brought a pipe bomb and a can of gasoline to a Jacksonville congregation during prayers and detonated it. Thank God no one was injured, but it’s still a rather frightening terrorist attack. The FBI is investigating:
“It was a dangerous device, and had anybody been around it they could have been seriously injured or killed,” says Special Agent James Casey. “We want to sort of emphasize the seriousness of the thing and not let people believe that this was just a match and a little bit of gasoline that was spread around.”
The surveillance video “shows the arsonist carrying gasoline and the pipe bomb. When the explosive went off, parts of it were found 100 feet away on 9A.”
Yes, there was a terrorist attack with religious motivations (OK, the FBI is calling it a “possible” act of terrorism). The suspect has yet to be found, but the FBI is on the case.
Anyone care to guess why Peter King, Joe Lieberman, Glenn Beck, and Rudy Giuliani aren’t swarming all over this? See for yourself:
