Three White Men with “Improvised Explosives,” what if they were Muslims?
We are well aware of the fact that the AlQaeda threat is overblown, or to cite Australian Intelligence, “vastly overblown.” Articles from our writers in the past have also explored the fact that the Terror threat in the West in general is very low, that actual occurrences are lower than leftist/separatist attacks.
Even when terrorism does occur discussion inevitably leads to the 800 pound gorilla in the room that no one wants to talk about; occupation. Occupation, aggressive posturing against Muslims and the rise of Islamophobia in the West correlate significantly or in part to the well spring of terrorist recruitment. They don’t attack us for our “freedom,” they attack us because we are “over there.”
The news media has worked in tandem or as unwitting stooges in the propagation of the “myth” of the number one enemy being “Islam” or “terrorism.” In doing so they generally neglect or push to the side serious stories that highlight and expose “terror plots” amongst other groups.
Recently a house in Connecticut that three white men had recently moved into was found to have “improvised explosives.” Imagine if it had been “three Middle Eastern” looking guys? Or heaven forbid some Muslims?

The FBI and Connecticut police late Wednesday night find improvised explosives devices and bomb-making material in a New Haven, Connecticut home; firefighters found the materials when they responded to reports of smoke coming out of the house; it is not yet clear how many bombs were found, and what type of explosives material was used
Connecticut police and FBI agents are investigating what they say appear to be “improvised explosives” and bomb-making materials found late Wednesday night in a New Haven home.
Firefighters found the materials when they responded to reports by neighbors of smoke at 17 Hubinger Street, New Haven Police Officer Joe Avery said .
No injuries were reported, and Avery said there is no immediate danger.
Fox News quotes Avery to say that it is not clear how many bombs and explosive materials are in the home.
An FBI spokesman in New Haven confirmed that agents were on the scene Thursday and were assisting in the investigation, but declined to provide additional details.
Hubinger Street remained closed to traffic early Thursday.
The police say the home was empty and no one has been arrested, but that they have persons of interest they want to talk to.
Peter Wells, who lives not far from the home, said a “few guys” had moved into the residence on Sunday. The three white men appeared to be in their mid 20s or early 30s, Wells said.
“They looked like average guys,” he said. “I didn’t see anything out of line at all, that’s why I’m a daze myself about what’s going on.”
He said he was awakened at 3:30 a.m. by the police. “They just got the house shut down,” Wells told FoxNews.com. “Whatever happened at this residence, [police officials] are stating that it’s a pretty serious matter over there. But they’re not releasing many details.”
Wells said he saw New Haven police officers “stomping on a box” early Thursday morning, and that police dogs were on the scene.
