But, hey, I’m sure Islam had nooooothin’ to do with this. Right?
A Petaluma man was held on $1 million bail Tuesday after police and FBI agents found pipe bombs at his home and materials to make additional explosive devices. Sheriff’s deputies detonated two live bombs and two partially constructed devices outside the Quarry Street home, Petaluma police Lt. Tim Lyons said. . . .
Ismail Moylan, 30, was arrested on suspicion of possessing a destructive device. He is scheduled to be arraigned in Sonoma County Superior Court on Wednesday morning. Moylan, who police said also goes by the name Ismail Aljamal, initially was held in Sonoma County Jail on $250,000 bail. His bail was hiked to $1 million after police requested the increase in an attempt to keep him from being released, Lyons said. Moylan has lived in the subdivision near Corona Road for about 15 years, said neighbors. He manages a family-run religious publishing company from his home called Sidi Muhammad Press, according to the company’s website.
FBI agents joined the investigation Tuesday morning after three pipe bombs were found. Later in the day police requested additional FBI help. “We’re calling more FBI out to take a better look at the suspect’s history, based upon items found inside the residence,” said Lyons. “They’re (FBI agents) looking at the whole incident, making sure there’s nothing else to this.” . . . Initially Moylan was arrested on suspicion of illegally possessing prescription drugs, a misdemeanor. Officers then found a handgun at the home and what looked like a pipe bomb. Members of the Sonoma County sheriff’s bomb squad were called to the house and determined the pipe bomb, found in the garage, was real.
After obtaining a search warrant for the property, a more thorough effort began before dawn Tuesday and two more devices were found. . . . Of the four devices, two held explosive powder, according to bomb squad deputies. The explosive materials found in the garage included a plastic container of what appeared to be black, explosive powder and materials to make the powder, Lyons said. . . .
Moylan’s family purchased the home when the subdivision was built 15 years ago, neighbors said. They believed the suspect lived with his mother and perhaps other family members. They kept to themselves, didn’t regularly respond to waves or “hellos,” generating some puzzlement over the years due to the lack of neighborliness. Neighbors said they’d also been curious about frequent comings and going of people to the home arriving in vehicles with out-of-state license plates.
But no way this is Islamic terrorism, right? Not jihad. Just (not so) nice, innocent Muslim neighbors. There’s a reason the Joint Terrorism Task Force is involved. But he likes Grand Theft Auto, so he’s “just like us!”
Mike Silva, who lives in a nearby neighborhood, walked up Tuesday morning to learn more about what was happening. His family got an automated call from his children’s school, Meadow Elementary, which is just south of Corona Creek Elementary. “It shows you the sort of activities that can occur in our own backyards,” said Silva.
Exactly. It can happen in your backyard, my backyard, all of our backyards. That’s because we did nothing to stop Islamic immigration, and we continue to bend over backward for them, despite what they did to us on 9/11, at Fort Hood, and at other times elsewhere. This Ismail Aljamal felt comfy publishing jihadist lit and putting together bombs. And we’re just lucky that by a fluke, he wasn’t careful and was caught because of his illicit prescriptions.
But for that, he’d still be making bombs.
Or setting them off in the name of allah.
