There's quite a bit of talk these days, coming mostly from the Rightwing, that "Not All Muslims are Terrorist, but Most Terrorists are Muslim" - however, it appears that there are some determined self-avowed Christians who want a bit a credit for their own Terrorism Too.
Meet the Christian "Bin Laden", Justin Moose - who hates Obamacare, the "Ground Zero Mosque" and you're friendly neighborhood OB/GYN equally.
Justin Carl Moose, 26, is a self-described "extremist, radical" and the "Christian counterpart of Osama bin Laden," according to an affidavit filed by FBI agents. [...]
"Whatever you may think about me, you’re probably right," he wrote on his Facebook page, according to the affidavit.
"Extremist, Radical, Fundamentalist...? Yep! Terrorist...? Well, I prefer the term ‘freedom Fighter.’" [...]
Status updates posted beginning in January urge violence, FBI agents said in their affidavit.
"The Death Care Bill passed last night," he wrote when Obama’s health care plan was approved in March. "Keep your phone and rifle close and wait."[...]
"If a mosque is built on ground zero, it will be removed. Oklahoma City style. Tim’s not the only man out there that knows how to do it," the affidavit says he wrote in July, in a reference to Timothy McVeigh, who bombed a federal building in Oklahoma City.[...]
The local news report does happen to note The Gadsen Flag in the window of Moose's home, showing even more indications of "Tea Party" confluence besides is "Obamacare" and "Ground Zero Mosque" bashing, but the real bombshell is Moose's apparent open membership in the Underground Domestic Terror Group Army Of God.
The Army of God is an underground network of domestic terrorists who believe that the use of violence is appropriate and acceptable as a means to end abortion.
An excerpt from the Army of God Manual says that the Army of God "...is a real Army, and God is the General and Commander-in-Chief. The soldiers, however, do not usually communicate with one another. Very few have ever met each other. And when they do, each is usually unaware of the other's soldier status. That is why the Feds will never stop this Army. Never. And we have not yet even begun to fight."
The first public mention of the Army of God (AOG) is believed to have been when Don Benny Anderson used the AOG name in 1982 when he and Matthew and Wayne Moore kidnapped an Illinois abortion provider and his wife. The couple was later released unharmed and the trio were apprehended and convicted. Benny Anderson and the Moore brothers were also responsible for abortion clinic arsons.
They operate a bit like Terrorist Sleeper Cells, working autonomously to minimize contact, exposure and detection by the authorities. Y'know - just like al Qeada does.
Some known members of the Army of God include Paul Hill who shotgunned a OB/GYN doctor and his bodyguard to death in Florida, James Kopp who murdered Dr. Barnett Slepian, Shelley Shannon who fire bombed several clinics and shot Dr. George Tiller in both arms, and Eric Robert Rudolph the Atlanta Olympic Park Bomber, who also bombed several Women's Clinics and Gay Nightclubs before he was eventually caught.
Others who may not be actual members, but the AOG themselves find worthy of praise include Scott Reoder, who last year finished what Shelley Shannon started and killed Dr. George Tiller.

Should we really be surprised by this after the activities of the Hutaree Militia, Knoxville Tennessee "Liberal" Shooter, Holocaust Museum Shooter, Repent Amarillo, Operation Rescue and Randal Terry who most recent appears was at Park 51 tearing up from the Qur'an and showing just how "sensitive" he is to the concerns of 9/11 being politicized...
So it might be fair to say that while Not all Right-Wing Nutjobs are Domestic Terrorists, most (nearly all) Domestic Terrorists are Right-Wing Nutjobs!
For his part Moose was apparently caught be the FBI in the process of planning a bomb attack on an Abortion Clinic and is scheduled to appear in Federal Court this week and faces 20 Years if convicted.
Oh, and by the way, the Arabic translation for "Army of God"
is is very similar to Hezbollah.
There was a rec'd diary on this a few days ago, but it didn't go more into the Army of God connection, or consider that it's multi-headed hydra tactics provide excellent cover and denial of responsibility for the most extreme anti-Obama, anti-Gay, anti-Muslim, anti-Black, anti-Health Care, Anti-Government, anti-Abortion wing of the GOP, aka The Tea Party.
"If you're mosque happens to get BLOWED UP - not saying that it will - WE HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH IT - but maybe you should go talk to those guys over there, with the detcord and timers and Death To Islam T-Shirts at the far end of today's 150,000 angry white person rally..."
