Yet another Muslim misunderstands Islam, and thinks that dying “the Islamic way” has something to do with murdering infidels. Maybe he has been reading the work of greasy Islamophobes. “Suspected Islamic Extremist Arrested in Alleged Florida Bomb Plot,” from Fox News, January 9:
URGENT: A 25-year-old man described as an Islamic extremist was arrested in an alleged plot to attack crowded areas in the Tampa, Fla., area with a car bomb, assault rifle and other explosives, authorities said Monday.
The U.S. Department of Justice said Sami Osmakac, a naturalized U.S. citizen who was born in the former Yugoslavia, was arrested Saturday night.
Osmakac, from Pinellas County, allegedly told an undercover agent that “We all have to die, so why not die the Islamic way?‘” according to a criminal complaint.
FBI agents arrested Osmakac on Saturday after he allegedly bought explosive devices and firearms from an undercover agent. The firearms and explosives were rendered inoperable by law enforcement. The federal complaint says that shortly before his arrest, Osmakac made a video of himself explaining his motives for carrying out the planned violent attack.
He has been charged with one count of attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction. His first appearance in federal court is scheduled for Monday at 2 p.m. ET….
Federal officials said a confidential source told them that Osmakac wanted Al Qaeda flags. The federal complaint alleges Osmakac gave the agent a $500 down payment for an AK-47, multiple homemade explosive grenades and the explosive belt so he could attack various locations in Tampa
Osmakac had created a “martyrdom video” and tried on a bomb belt before being arrested Saturday, law enforcement officials said.
