Islamic Center of Murfreesboro receives bomb threat

Islamic Center of Murfreesboro

MURFREESBORO — Murfreesboro Police and the Department of Homeland Security are investigating a bomb threat at the local Islamic Center of Murfreesboro.

Murfreesboro Police spokesman Kyle Evans said Imam Ossama Bahloul contacted MPD dispatch around 1:30 p.m. today to report a threatening voicemail that was left on an ICM answering machine around 1 a.m. Monday.

“Officers responded to the center and made contact with (Bahloul), who advised that an unknown suspect left a voicemail message threatening to place a bomb inside the building on Sept. 11,” Evans said. “The message also included extreme profanity and derogatory remarks toward the Muslim religion.”

Evans said Homeland Security Special Agent James Cotter is also investigating “on the state and federal level.”

MPD had not searched the ICM for explosive devices as of today as the threat was “to place it there at a future point,” Evans said, adding no one at the ICM reported finding anything suspicious inside the building.

Evans said MPD “takes all threats seriously and will investigate it as well as add extra patrol through and beyond Sept. 11.”

He refused to go into specifics about MPD’s investigation, though it is likely MPD will contact the telephone company to request call records as a first step of its investigation.

However, because phone calls can be made using fabricated numbers via many websites, it could be difficult to trace the actual caller.

  1. would that not fall under a terroristic threat and be a federal crime? Why no FBI involvment??

  2. Allen..daah!!!! Do the math, when is muslims who are the victims of such a terrorist treat is NOT terrorism. When we are americans we do not care for anyone especially muslims, we DO NOT care of the millions of middle-easterns muslims we’ve slauthered and terrorized each and evey day for the past 1o year ongoing. Nor the ones that the right-wing religious fanatical politicians are calling for the restuction of their religious rights. No-no what we do is bild shrines of worship for the 3000 victims(may they rest in peace) that terrorist ben-laden was reponsable for, forgetting all about the millions U.S.A slauthered(may God receive them) with weapon of grand-scale destruction, in the name of vangeance by criminal-terrorists like bush, cheney,remsfeld,blair ect..So do the math.

  3. Dont get me wrong i’m not saying we shouldnt remember the tragedy that took 3000 (including muslims) innocent victims, and who did it will burn in hell, but we must also remember the millions of innocent Iraqis and Afghanis that have also been murdered by revengeful, war-like, criminal neo-cons, precisely because of this very tragedy that wasn’t even from their own people. They had nothing to do with-it yet they died by the 100’s of 1000’s FOR IT…May God have mercy on their souls so they rest in peace..

  4. This is hypocritical.

  5. allen,

    just because this article doesn’t mention the feds doesn’t mean they aren’t involved

    “Murfreesboro Police and the Department of Homeland Security are investigating a bomb threat at the local Islamic Center of Murfreesboro.”

    “”Evans said Homeland Security Special Agent James Cotter is also investigating “on the state and federal level.””

    strange this article is by mark bell as well? perhaps the editors of this website where think youmight have that reaction if they drop homeland security from the article. so much spin, very fox-like of them….lol

  6. allen,

    it says right in this article….”Evans said Homeland Security Special Agent James Cotter is also investigating “on the state and federal level.”” my bad editors? a thousand pardons…

    sahra,

    you’re right. we have killed hundreds of thousands. so you know what we should learn from this? don’t mess with the US. yes we have weapons of mass destruction. we have icbms, stealth fighter/bombers, drones, m1a1 tanks, ac-130 gunships, tomahawks, aircraft carriers, destroyers, etc etc.

  7. 105:1

    ألم تر كيف فعل ربك بأصحاب الفيل

    Have you not considered, [O Muhammad], how your Lord dealt with the companions of the elephant?

    105:2

    ألم يجعل كيدهم في تضليل

    Did He not make their plan into misguidance?

    105:3

    وأرسل عليهم طيرا أبابيل

    And He sent against them birds in flocks,

    105:4

    ترميهم بحجارة من سجيل

    Striking them with stones of hard clay,

    105:5

    فجعلهم كعصف مأكول

    And He made them like eaten straw.

    enough birds sucked into a jet will bring it down. verily allah as abandonded the iraqis and afghans???????? why not send down the angels, like in the battle if badr??????

  8. Mike

    God said there would be a time of chaos where many muslims would be lead astray and that time would end when Jesus came down to kill the false messiah and lead a battle against the dis-believers (i.e. anyone who is atheist, a Chrstian or Muslim or Jew only by name or polytheist that Allah would send to Hell)

    And God I love that surah. I memorized it when I was like 7.

  9. Well-well mikey, are we at last finally admitting that the U.S empire is nothing but a destroyer??? LOL. Let me help you GO a step further OK!, the Empire is genocidal TOO, i hope you’ll finally come to that conclution TOO, as many around the world woke-up to this, especially middle-eastern muslims.
    You said the ‘lesson’ is dont ‘mess-up with the U.S’, LOOOl the empire is already messed-up all by itsel and already crumbling under its own atrosities, middle-east democracy is the End of the empire.

  10. And by the way the Empire killed MILLIONS Not ‘100’s OF 1000’s’

  11. sahra,

    you’re right. millions. we killed millions just in ww2.

    “are we at last finally admitting that the U.S empire is nothing but a destroyer???” no. how do you come to that conclusion?

    “the Empire is genocidal TOO, i hope you’ll finally come to that conclution TOO,” again how do you come to that conclusion? true we waged a genocidal campaign against the native population during our westward expansion. but in modern times we have shown great restraint and even been generous towards our enemies. see the marshal plan. if we are a genocidal empire then why are there still japanesse on the planet? why don’t we occupy the japanesse islands? why did we give back our quarter of germany? mckinley thought we should be an empire and kept the philipines after the spanish american war. but we learned from that mistake and gave them their independence after ww2. why the hell aren’t we getting free oil from kuwait and iraq?

    “crumbling under its own atrosities” again how do you come to that conclusion? we are crumbling under the weight of our debt. only a small portion of which is because of our wars. we are crumbling under the weight of our entitlements.

  12. allen,

    “Muslims currently worship. Local law enforcement, the FBI and ATF are investigating the incidents and will not comment on their status.” from islamophobiatoday.

    sahra,

    your funny!

    “Allen..daah!!!! Do the math, when is muslims who are the victims of such a terrorist treat is NOT terrorism.” you like to redefine words don’t you? do you consider yourself a post-modern structuralist?

  13. sahra,

    looks like someone agrees with you.

    “Al-Zawahiri described the Arab revolutions as a defeat for the US”

  14. elle,

    end of the world prophecies lead to things like this. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grand_Mosque_Seizure and mass suicide. you know there is a comet coming by on the 26th, some people think it will flip the poles? although i hear it is running three days late. the mayans calender ends on 12/21/12. you ever hear of Nostradamus? maybe he is the green one??????
