A man who recently became a Mennonite tried to blow up a military recruiting station in Maryland.
Hah hah. Just kidding (which you knew):
Antonio Martinez, 21, a U.S. citizen who recently converted to Islam and changed his name to Muhammad Hussain, declared on his Facebook page that he hates “Any 1 who opposes Allah.”
[The] FBI learned of his radical leanings on Facebook, joined his plot and supplied him with a fake car bomb that he tried to detonate, federal officials said.
Also mentioned in the article:
Last month, undercover agents in Oregon helped a man who set out to kill thousands at a Christmas tree lighting ceremony prepare a bomb (which was fake), then arrested him after he tried to detonate it in a crowded public square. In October, federal agents posing as Islamic radicals met with a Northern Virginia man later accused of plotting to bomb Washington area Metro stations.
The guy in Oregon is a Baptist and the Virginia would-be metro bomber is a Catholic Tea Party member.
No they’re not.
