Jenny EriksonThank God for incompetent terrorists. A jihadist suicide bomber succeeded only in injuring two people and killing himself last Saturday in Stockholm when he detonated two bombs.
Taimur Abdulwahab al-Abdaly has been credited and heralded as the perpetrator of the attack on a busy shopping street in Sweden’s capital city by the terror group al Qaeda. On a Yemeni website, Abdulwahab was praised for his actions: “It is our brother, mujahid Taymour Abdel Wahab, who carried out the martyrdom operation in Stockholm.”
A Mujahid is a Muslim engaged in radical Islam.
Abdulwahab was born in Iraq, but was a Swedish citizen living in the England town of Luton. Luton has seen its share of contention in recent years, most recently being the site of a protest by Islamists picketing returning British soldiers from Iraq. The extremists held up signs accusing the men of being "butchers" and "baby-killers."
Moments before his death, Abdulwahab sent an email containing an audio file to the police and to a Swedish news agency. Apparently, he was ticked off by Sweden’s military presence in Afghanistan, as well as the country’s silence over an image by a Swedish artist that depicted the Prophet Muhammad as a dog.
The bomber was upset that Sweden didn’t seem "tolerant" enough of radical Islam. In the taped message, Abdulwahab said, "So will your children, daughters, brothers, and sisters die, like our brothers, sisters, and children die … now the Islamic state has been created. We now exist here in Europe and in Sweden. We are a reality. I don't want to say more about this. Our actions will speak for themselves."
What a nut job. Newsflash: The troops in Afghanistan are not there seeking out innocents to rape and villages to plunder. The troops are there trying to stop crazy people like Abdulwahab from strapping a bomb on his back and attempting to kill Swedes out doing their Christmas shopping.
His actions will speak for themselves, indeed. A note to terrorists everywhere: Normal people are never going to be "tolerant" of your views, because your views tell you to blow people up. Stop trying to kill people, and we’ll leave you alone.
