Back in late September I had posted about how Muslims in Kosovo were starting to speak up about people leaving Islam and against any new Churches being built there. I had also mentioned how writer Michael Totten continually tries to sell us his Kosovo is "moderate" Islam fantasy. Besides three of the Fort Dix plotters being from there, now we have an Islamic suicide bomber being arrested in Kosovo. Is this all part "moderate" Islam?
Kosovo Albanian with suicide vest arrested
February 16, 2009
A Kosovo Albanian from the city of Kacanik has been arrested in a cafe in the southern village of Strpce in Serbia’s province of Kosovo report police spokesman Arber Beka.
The arrested Albanian wore a suicide vest loaded with explosives.
He was arrested in the cafe called Kvatro around 8:00 pm today. Police and NATO troops have surrounded the perimeter and are investigating.
The arrest came after a cafe patron spotted that one of the three Albanians who just walked into the cafe had wires under his jacket.
The police was immediately called in and after a search, the police found explosive in a suicide vest on the body of Arben Husi, one of the 3 ethnic Albanians who came into the cafe.
In addition to the explosives, the police found a grenade and a Kalashnikov.
The witnesses say that one of the Albanians ran out of the cafe, while the second one was held on. After the search, the police tied Husi up to the chair and then took him to the police station.
It is not clear whether Husi planned to commit a suicide bombing or to just plant the explosive inside the cafe and activate it after.
Kosovo Albanians are overwhelmingly Muslim and radical Islam is on the increase ever since the Western states have been insisting that the Serbian province is independent.
Strpce is located just under the slopes of the Sar mountains and is populated by Serbs.
Few weeks ago, 2 Albanians stabbed a Serb from Strpce in a chest.
