Terror Strikes in Stockholm: Radical Lutherans Stage Another Suicide Bombing

Posted on | December 12, 2010 | 13 Comments

Having previously warned about the worldwide menace of radical Lutheranism, I was scarcely surprised by the latest headlines from Sweden:

STOCKHOLM — One man was killed and two other people were injured when two explosions hit the heart of Stockholm’s city-center shopping district on Saturday evening, the police in the Swedish capital said. The country’s foreign minister called the blasts a terrorist attack, and an e-mail to news organizations minutes before the blasts seemed to link them to anger over anti-Islamic cartoons and the war in Afghanistan. . . .
An editor at the Swedish news agency Tidningarnas Telegrambyra, Dan Skeppe, said the agency had received an e-mail minutes before the blasts; it was also addressed to Sweden’s security police, and included a sound recording addressed to “Sweden and the Swedish people.” Mr. Skeppe said the recording cited Swedish “silence” over cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad drawn by the artist Lars Vilks, criticized Sweden’s 500-soldier military contingent in northern Afghanistan and threatened attacks on Swedes.
“Now, your children — daughters and sisters — will die like our brothers and sisters and children die,” it continued. “Our actions will speak for themselves. As long as you do not end your war against Islam and the insult against the prophet and your stupid support for that pig Vilks.”

Wait . . . what’s this stuff about Aghanistan and Muhammad and Islam? Let’s check in with Michael Moynihan at Reason:

The bomber cited the Swedish military’s involvement with NATO in Afghanistan and “threatened” those serving there. According to Expressen, the letter also urges Muslims to fight back against “Islamophobia” in Sweden, presumably by murdering Swedes, and calls on “all mujahadin in Sweden and across Europe” to rise up.

What? No Lutherans? How can Moynihan ignore the Clear and Present Danger to the American Way of Life posed by Lutheran fundamentalism?

UPDATE: Stockholm Bomber ID’d as Sven Olsen Taimour Abdulwahab Al-Abdaly
