What Really Happened @ Halal Minnesota Site of Building Explosion? Homeland Security Investigating

By Debbie Schlussel

How many fires and explosions caused by “natural gas” spur Homeland Security federal agents to investigate? None. But ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) agents are investigating the Minneapolistan New Year’s Day explosion. And they don’t usually get involved unless it involves illegal immigration matters and sometimes Islamic terrorism.


I’m no conspiracy theorist. But it’s stupid to look the other way when a religion that is often involved in conspiracies–and deliberate explosions–is heavily connected to an explosion. And so it goes with the big Minneapolistan fire in the news. Yesterday’s explosion in a Minneapolis building chock full with Muslim inhabitants and a halal butcher shop and grocery store is suspicious. (There is a mosque and Islamic cultural center next door.) While some authorities are now theorizing that it could have been the result of a natural gas leak, it might have been something else: arson, experiments with explosives, or something else. These sinister things have happened before at Muslim-owned businesses and places where Muslims are experimenting with devices for use against non-Muslims. It wouldn’t be the first time. And several of those who inhabited the building are missing and unaccounted for. We know that most of those in the building were Somalian Muslims, and probably many of them were here illegally, which may be why ICE/HSI (Homeland Security Investigations) agents are on the scene. But they are also there to find out if foul play was involved.

While no final determination has been made, a source close to the law enforcement investigation said that it is believed that the initial explosion occurred at the ground level of the building. Homeland Security personnel were on the scene in the aftermath of the fire that sent 14 people to hospitals, six in critical condition. They were there to determine if there was anything suspicious about the explosion. . . .

In addition to trying to determine the cause, authorities searched the late-1800s building for the handful of residents still unaccounted for a day later. At least 14 people were injured, six critically in the explosion and fire about 8:15 a.m. Wednesday that destroyed an immigrant-owned grocery store and the 10 apartments above it in the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood. . . . Fire officials have yet to determine whether everyone made it out of the building and is accounted for, Penn added. . . .

A service organization that works on behalf of Somali immigrants said early Thursday that it is setting up a relief fund for those affected by the fire. Mohamud Noor, executive director of the Confederation of Somali Community in Minnesota said “100 percent of donations collected will go to victims and families.”

Uh-huh. Sure, they will.

“This is a horrible tragedy,” Noor said. “We stand together to help families both in the immediate aftermath and in the days, weeks and months to come.”

And send us money.

The building housed the Otanga grocery store. The apartments above it were apparently all occupied by single men, most of them East African immigrants, a resident said. . . . Ahmed Muse, one of five owners of the Otanga grocery store, said he arrived at the store at 8 a.m. Wednesday. There was what he called “an electrical shock” in the building, and police were called. When he went outside to talk to the officers, an explosion erupted on the second floor, blowing out the windows and scattering glass on the street below.

Hmmm . . . the building housed mostly single Muslim men from Somalia, home of Al-Shabaab. It’s highly unlikely that most of them were here legally. What were they doing in those apartments? We may never find out. And you can bet that the FBI and Homeland Security weren’t watching when they should have been.

What do you think?

Islamic terrorists also operate out of mosques.

And even embassies. I’m sure you heard by now of the PLO “ambassador” to the Czech Repunlic who was snuffed out by powerful explosives stored in his safe. Was it Semtex? We may never find out.

But the point is Muslims are not the “religion of peace.” And when “work accidents” happen around them, suspect they are involved. Whether that’s in Minnesota or in the Czech Republic that IS Islam.

It takes jihad to the point of endangering their own lives… and just be thankful here dhimmis weren’t also killed along with them. Exit question: do Islamic terrorists who goof up still get their 72 virgins?

Many of the firefighters interviewed at the scene said this was like a “war zone” and like “nothing” they’d “ever seen before”. I’m pretty sure the local news also reported that natural gas (the usual culprit) was ruled out.

Also – there was a suicide bombing in Somalia on the same day. That is quite coincidental!

MomInMinnesota on January 2, 2014 at 4:01 pm

Without knowing anything else besides the initial story, I immediately wondered if this was a terrorism case. A huge explosion in a building in Minneapolis (known for it’s Somali immigrant population), but no mention of what caused it? Hmmmm. Oh and you can bet 100% of the money will do to victims and families….as long as you describe any Somali as a victim of racism or Muslim bigotry.
This will get swept under the rug like everything else that doesn’t fit the narrative with this administration.

This reminds me of the weathermen explosion in NYC some time ago. You know, Bill Ayers, Obama’s buddy and ghost writer.

LPon Beach Chuck on January 2, 2014 at 4:56 pm

I caught the headlines on a MSM news program and they were speculating that it was a “hate crime.”

I vote that it was either insurance fraud, a set-up to feign a “hate-crime” against muslims gone awry or both.

DS_ROCKS! on January 2, 2014 at 4:58 pm

I saw this elsewhere and commented, “looks like a Mooooslim insurance scam.”

Everyone should avoid using the term “conspiracy theorist.” Thanks to CIA and its many media assets, the term has become a buzzword to label those who don’t accept uninvestigated or improperly investigated matters by government entities as kooks or wearers of “tin foil hats.”

I have news for you. The 911 crime was not committed by a “lone nut.” John Wilkes Booth did not act alone in the assassination of Lincoln. And JFK wasn’t killed by a “lone assassin” either.

Conspiracies happen all of the time. The colossal frauds at Enron and Worldcom were the work of many individuals at each company and they had accomplises outside the company as well.

But the term “conspiracy theorist” as a pejorative term originated with the CIA in CIA Document No. 1035-960. And it was originally used in an attempt to discredit the critics of the Warren Commission fairy tale. As noted in the document, “THE AIM OF THIS DISPATCH IS TO PROVIDE MATERIAL COUNTERING AND DISCREDITING THE CLAIMS OF THE CONSPIRACY THEORISTS. . .” This is the origination of term.

Thank you, CIA.

(Of course, for anyone doing any real thinking out there, you have to ask yourself, “why would CIA care about that; after all, according to them, a lone-nut killed JFK and the case is closed; so who cares what critics say?” But obviously, CIA does care.)

Since then, the media has used the term relentlessly so that those who are already predisposed toward obediance to authority–no matter how corrupt that authority is–feel a sense of shame or embarrassment if they suggest that some act is the work of a conspiracy. And even those who don’t blindly accept everything some government agency or representative tells them have been made to feel unformfortable when they suggest that something is a conspiracy.

My advice is don’t be so easily manipulated. And don’t believe everything some authority figure tells you. At one time, the public was told that the Earth was the center of the Universe and that the Earth was flat, and most people believed those authorities. Read, research, study, get informed, and don’t fall into the media traps that have been set for you. Start thinking for yourselves.

For those who appreciate history, here’s the original CIA Document No. 1035-960, which was made available to the public–thanks to those who seek to have the truth revealed.

CIA Document #1035-960

RE: Concerning Criticism of the Warren Report

1. Our Concern. From the day of President Kennedy’s assassination on, there has been speculation about the responsibility for his murder. Although this was stemmed for a time by the Warren Commission report, (which appeared at the end of September 1964), various writers have now had time to scan the Commission’s published report and documents for new pretexts for questioning, and there has been a new wave of books and articles criticizing the Commission’s findings. In most cases the critics have speculated as to the existence of some kind of conspiracy, and often they have implied that the Commission itself was involved. Presumably as a result of the increasing challenge to the Warren Commission’s report, a public opinion poll recently indicated that 46% of the American public did not think that Oswald acted alone, while more than half of those polled thought that the Commission had left some questions unresolved. Doubtless polls abroad would show similar, or possibly more adverse results.

2. This trend of opinion is a matter of concern to the U.S. government, including our organization. The members of the Warren Commission were naturally chosen for their integrity, experience and prominence. They represented both major parties, and they and their staff were deliberately drawn from all sections of the country. Just because of the standing of the Commissioners, efforts to impugn their rectitude and wisdom tend to cast doubt on the whole leadership of American society. Moreover, there seems to be an increasing tendency to hint that President Johnson himself, as the one person who might be said to have benefited, was in some way responsible for the assassination.

Innuendo of such seriousness affects not only the individual concerned, but also the whole reputation of the American government. Our organization itself is directly involved: among other facts, we contributed information to the investigation. Conspiracy theories have frequently thrown suspicion on our organization, for example by falsely alleging that Lee Harvey Oswald worked for us. The aim of this dispatch is to provide material countering and discrediting the claims of the conspiracy theorists, so as to inhibit the circulation of such claims in other countries. Background information is supplied in a classified section and in a number of unclassified attachments.

3. Action. We do not recommend that discussion of the assassination question be initiated where it is not already taking place. Where discussion is active [business] addresses are requested:

a. To discuss the publicity problem with [?] and friendly elite contacts (especially politicians and editors), pointing out that the Warren Commission made as thorough an investigation as humanly possible, that the charges of the critics are without serious foundation, and that further speculative discussion only plays into the hands of the opposition. Point out also that parts of the conspiracy talk appear to be deliberately generated by Communist propagandists. Urge them to use their influence to discourage unfounded and irresponsible speculation.

b. To employ propaganda assets to [negate] and refute the attacks of the critics. Book reviews and feature articles are particularly appropriate for this purpose. The unclassified attachments to this guidance should provide useful background material for passing to assets. Our ploy should point out, as applicable, that the critics are (I) wedded to theories adopted before the evidence was in, (I) politically interested, (III) financially interested, (IV) hasty and inaccurate in their research, or (V) infatuated with their own theories. In the course of discussions of the whole phenomenon of criticism, a useful strategy may be to single out Epstein’s theory for attack, using the attached Fletcher [?] article and Spectator piece for background. (Although Mark Lane’s book is much less convincing that Epstein’s and comes off badly where confronted by knowledgeable critics, it is also much more difficult to answer as a whole, as one becomes lost in a morass of unrelated details.)

4. In private to media discussions not directed at any particular writer, or in attacking publications which may be yet forthcoming, the following arguments should be useful:

a. No significant new evidence has emerged which the Commission did not consider. The assassination is sometimes compared (e.g., by Joachim Joesten and Bertrand Russell) with the Dreyfus case; however, unlike that case, the attack on the Warren Commission have produced no new evidence, no new culprits have been convincingly identified, and there is no agreement among the critics. (A better parallel, though an imperfect one, might be with the Reichstag fire of 1933, which some competent historians (Fritz Tobias, AJ.P. Taylor, D.C. Watt) now believe was set by Vander Lubbe on his own initiative, without acting for either Nazis or Communists; the Nazis tried to pin the blame on the Communists, but the latter have been more successful in convincing the world that the Nazis were to blame.)

b. Critics usually overvalue particular items and ignore others. They tend to place more emphasis on the recollections of individual witnesses (which are less reliable and more divergent–and hence offer more hand-holds for criticism) and less on ballistics, autopsy, and photographic evidence. A close examination of the Commission’s records will usually show that the conflicting eyewitness accounts are quoted out of context, or were discarded by the Commission for good and sufficient reason.

c. Conspiracy on the large scale often suggested would be impossible to conceal in the United States, esp. since informants could expect to receive large royalties, etc. Note that Robert Kennedy, Attorney General at the time and John F. Kennedy’s brother, would be the last man to overlook or conceal any conspiracy. And as one reviewer pointed out, Congressman Gerald R. Ford would hardly have held his tongue for the sake of the Democratic administration, and Senator Russell would have had every political interest in exposing any misdeeds on the part of Chief Justice Warren. A conspirator moreover would hardly choose a location for a shooting where so much depended on conditions beyond his control: the route, the speed of the cars, the moving target, the risk that the assassin would be discovered. A group of wealthy conspirators could have arranged much more secure conditions.

d. Critics have often been enticed by a form of intellectual pride: they light on some theory and fall in love with it; they also scoff at the Commission because it did not always answer every question with a flat decision one way or the other. Actually, the make-up of the Commission and its staff was an excellent safeguard against over-commitment to any one theory, or against the illicit transformation of probabilities into certainties.

e. Oswald would not have been any sensible person’s choice for a co-conspirator. He was a “loner,” mixed up, of questionable reliability and an unknown quantity to any professional intelligence service.

f. As to charges that the Commission’s report was a rush job, it emerged three months after the deadline originally set. But to the degree that the Commission tried to speed up its reporting, this was largely due to the pressure of irresponsible speculation already appearing, in some cases coming from the same critics who, refusing to admit their errors, are now putting out new criticisms.

g. Such vague accusations as that “more than ten people have died mysteriously” can always be explained in some natural way e.g.: the individuals concerned have for the most part died of natural causes; the Commission staff questioned 418 witnesses (the FBI interviewed far more people, conduction 25,000 interviews and re interviews), and in such a large group, a certain number of deaths are to be expected. (When Penn Jones, one of the originators of the “ten mysterious deaths” line, appeared on television, it emerged that two of the deaths on his list were from heart attacks, one from cancer, one was from a head-on collision on a bridge, and one occurred when a driver drifted into a bridge abutment.)

5. Where possible, counter speculation by encouraging reference to the Commission’s Report itself. Open-minded foreign readers should still be impressed by the care, thoroughness, objectivity and speed with which the Commission worked. Reviewers of other books might be encouraged to add to their account the idea that, checking back with the report itself, they found it far superior to the work of its critics.

    conspiracy: An agreement between two or more persons to commit a crime, to perform an illegal, wrongful, or subversive act or accomplish a legal purpose through illegal action.
    Theorist: what could most likely happen
    Realist: what most likely did happen

    Considering the situation I’d say that we’re most likely to be Conspiracy Realists.

    Note how any talk of an accomplice is almost immediately squelched by the Media? First blame ‘the Right’ then, when no proof is found, do a 180 & mock the ‘conspiracy theory’.
    The mouthpiece has become the muzzle.

    theShadow on January 3, 2014 at 10:48 pm

There was an “electric shock” and the police were called. Then the place blew up when they arrived. That’s the craziest, “stupidest” story I’ve ever heard, just for the basic fact that the effcts of electric shocks are right now, they’re not delayed! Hilarious.

I smell an insurance scam…

At the same address earlier Wed..Minneapolis police confirmed officers were at the same address earlier Wednesday morning, but said it was a separate service call that was unrelated to the explosion.
Things that make you go hummmmmmmmmm

Steve on January 3, 2014 at 12:28 pm

Hmmmm, Something doesn’t smell right….no, wait if it had been a natural gas explosion there would have been something that didn’t smell right- THE NATURAL GAS. No one mentioned that,only some fake electrical shock. I’m ‘shocked’ the authorities are so gullible. No, I guess I’m really not. I wish I were.

Odd story when first announced — later, details brought in the Somalis and then the oft-repeated unplanned detonation among moslems seemed involved. The appearance by DHS to “investigate”
the matter convinced me the DHS was there to cover up for their
“W” accepted the primacy of islam, Mullah Barry accepts the supremacy of islam and is allying with them! Wimp Boehner

Hans Schaden on January 3, 2014 at 2:20 pm

Wait! maybe Timothy McViegh did it! O shucks, I forgot , he got gassed! It couldn’t of been the occupying usurper of the Oval, for he’s been in Hawaii hitting the links – what is that written on his ring ‘know other god but lala’?
This country has been over run by a bunch of apathetic hoodlums who find voting ballets in the trunks of their cars and the Chicago freaks like billy boy airheads and B. Dorhkin etc! They all play by the Saul Ailinski playbook that was dedicated to Satan!
Every time I hear the word con$iracy truth comes to mind especially when the media starts it’s trash talk and marginalizing CS (camel s#it) talk! *Reasons for the camel dung is in today’s world where the Ishmaelites gather so do camels, and that’s no bull!
The warren com. report conclusion was just swine wash, what a joke!
Heck, the elite global’s knock off the people who are getting in their way and to make thing’s seem right they give that (dead) person a Holiday (Federals get those day’s paid) what a bunch of crap! What ever happened (the song by Oliver) yeah, we know! People better pay attention to what’s really going on around them and their communities and be wise to their slimy ways and watch your pocketbooks and Speak out (call them out) along w/educating our young of the cunning ways of the adversary who’s also in the established media, academia, hollywoodetc! Never forget, the Lord is not mocked, if the Saul Ailinski’s of the world could come back from Hell they’d tell you to follow Jesus, for He is the only way!
Pastors (churches) had better get off these 501 (3-c) and preach the true Word! The Bible is fact, don’t show your ignorance by trying to appease the liberal thinker, You Will be held accountable, fear the Lord, not man! The Lord wrath will be horror for all who refuse the perfect Gift of Jesus, He and the Godhead paid a tremendous price for our redemption! He paid the price for all. Let’s say that a ceo of a company bought (reserved tickets) for a night out at a dinner playhouse but maybe 300 of the 1000 employee’s showed up, this same analogy is what our Lord did for us, who will say yes, I’ll go?!
The Atheist always lose when up against a Christian that truly knows Scripture, the Word of God is sharper the a two edged sword. What an awesome book of wisdom, written by man, inspired by GOD!
*Why is it that the world is coming down on Christian’s and Jews? The devil hates the truth! The Nephilim are back (some old world ones had 6 fingers & toes and double rows of teeth on each jaw and were giants – what did those angels do when they left there first estate and descended down on Mt Herman (Gen 6) and why is it that the Lord gave us the rainbow to assure us that He’d never Judge the world again via water (fountains of the great deep) & deluge? The old world had a misty canopy encompassing the earth! The days of Noe (Noah) never seen rain and the canopy would of defuse any rainbows! Why is it that Darwinist deny the giants? It goes against the propaganda of origins! Why did king David gather 5 stones when he killed Goliath? Goliath had four brothers! By the way, the book of Job predates the Sunni’s! Don’t be fooled by Satan’s CS! The mark that the Lord put on Cain was a serpent slithering up a pole w/a a cross, like the one in the medical field but just 1 snake, hmm!

Good day
Happy New

…Heb 13:6…
One other thing, why is it that they ignore the young blacks knocking out game and Eric comes down one this white (deranged) fellow for doing the same to a black?! I’m not racist, my family is mixed, so the hate mongers can just eat CS!

Wily on January 3, 2014 at 5:01 pm

Don’t you think that if it WERE bombed that the group who did it would come forward and Proudly taken claim to such a thing?

Historically it happens within just hours.

I hear crickets. And see a False Flag.

Johannan Baptiste on January 3, 2014 at 8:24 pm

    @JB: could it be because the “group” that did the bombing, bombed itself by mistake, playing with their own fireworks?
    Wasn’t that a point made by this article?

    theShadow on January 3, 2014 at 10:07 pm

Sounds a lot like their explosives stash accidentally detonated. Not enough bomb makers die this way.

Frankz on January 3, 2014 at 10:22 pm

Why are they collecting for “families” if they were single men? – (100 percent of donations collected will go to victims and families.)
Is this to buy tickets to bring them to the U.S.A.? To grieve?

Ruth on January 4, 2014 at 3:26 am

“We know that most of those in the building were Somalian Muslims”.

Minneapolis, where Somalian Muslims have been transplanted and a building blowing up and Homeland Security checking into it.

As someone who lives in Mpls, this is something that still bothers me and thus the reason I’m posting once again 2 months after event. It’s a dead story here in MPLS.

I’d like to know, did they interview each and every survivor of this?

Did they talk to the Landlord about his thoughts?

Have they dug deep into every occupants back ground?

Obama is a Muslim Supremacist with ties to “East Africa”. He usurped the Presidency by fraud during time of war. That makes him a spy and a traitor under US Law. Now we have HRC wanting to continue Obama’s facilitation of an Islamic Hijrah of over 100 THOUSAND unknown Muslim “refugees”. Obama campaigned for a known Kenyan terrorist named Raila Odinga who was connected with the Kenyan embassy bombings in 1998. http://www.thepostemail.com/09/17/2010/there-is-no-president-obama. Obama must be arrested and tried for treason.

Why was not ATF involved in this explosion…..They have expert bombing, explosion, arson expert criminal investigators…..HSI is not the appropriate federal agency to investigate this case.
