    Terrorist Threat At Local Mosque [in Detroit]

    DEARBORN, Mich. (WJBK) - On Monday, Dearborn Police arrested a California man on suspicion of attempting a terrorist act at the Islamic Center of America. 63 year old Roger Stockham was found in the Mosque's parking lot with explosive materials.
    Just a reminder that it isn't just Muslims who attempt terrorist acts. The only ingredient needed for either foreign or home grown terrorism is hate. Roger Stockham is a product of Islamophobia, nothing more, so what political party he belongs to (which hasn't even been determined yet) isn't important. Hatred breeds violence. It's that simple.

    It was good to see this was stopped before something terrible were to have happened. I look forward to knowing more about this man as well.

    You are absolutely right. People get so caught up in partisian hackfests that their brain's logic button gets turned off. Hatred of America, hatred of "the west", hatred of Muslims, hatred of Jews, hatred of Arabs... the root of it all is hatred.

    I'm just thankful that bomb wasn't detonated.

    Just a reminder that Muslims in many countries are the victims of terrorist acts committed by other Muslims. Seeing how the article did not mention the suspect religion I think you are just making an assumption.

    Well, here's something interesting about him.

    Dearborn — A decorated Army veteran accused of plotting to blow up a Metro Detroit mosque served time in federal prison for threatening to kill President George W. Bush and bomb a Vermont veterans' clinic in 2002.

    What bomb? It was fireworks. Plus he was charged with a false report or threat of terrorism, which leads me to believe it was never intended to be more than a bomb scare.

    Stockham was arraigned Wednesday on one count of a false report or threat of terrorism (a 20 year felony), and one count of explosives possession with unlawful intent (a 15 year felony) for possession of Class-C fireworks.

    Agreed, remember when that Muslim cabbie got cut? The media fell all over itself reporting that it must be some "Islamaphobe", then it turned out the assailant was actually active in promoting Islam in the US (although I don't think he, himself, was Muslim). The press couldn't drop the story fast enough.

    The way the story was written, you were supposed to miss that part.

    I don't understand why people can get the golden rule through their empty heads, and that goes for those who claim to be Christians and those who be long to the Islamic Cult.

    Almost every real and so-called Religion in the world has the same basic Golden Rule, Do unto others as you would have others do unto you. They might be worded differently the meanings are all the same and almost no one live up to it.

    Too bad because I believe if an accurate count was avislible we would see that Religions and Cults claiming to be Religions have caused more deaths than just about any other cause of war, this does not include the millions killed by Mao, Stalin, Hitler Pol Pot, and a couple other despots.

    How is it 15 years for fireworks and 20 years for making a threat; both being felonies? That does not seem like reasonable punishment.
