The Goofy Florida US "Muslim" Cult
I have to say that while American authorities were doubtless justified in arresting these retarded gits, the circus announcement and characterisation as some kind of Muslim terror cell linked to al-Qaeda, that Sr. authorities such as Gonzalez indulged in, is either mendacious or retarded itself. First, the Moorish Science loons are hardly Muslim at all, and second, the plot itself bordered on the comical. A bunch of unemployed whanker loons is not something to make a huge deal out of (although for political reasons, I suppose, although it does tend to piss away street cred). Doing so smells of fairly short-termist scare-mongering politics and pandering to Islamophobia.

Anyway, all-in-all, fairly pathetic.

my guess is these guys thought that they could get a bunch of free stuff from the pretend AQ guy. they gave him a damn shopping list!
yes, you are correct. they were just a bunch of retards, which the media and authorities hyped into a global security threat.

Very little about this group seems to fit the image of the Al-Qaeda subsidiary - and the inconsistencies are out there for everyone to see. Have to wonder why the Bushies are choosing to make a big deal of this, it really doesn't inspire confidence in their anti-terrorism efforts if this is the best plot-busting they could come up with.

the Bushies (Bushites?) thrive on fear. So of course they'll hype this.

This group called themselves "Seas of David", wore black uniforms with the Star of David on the arm, called Batiste "Prince Manna", had members named "Brother Abraham" and "Brother Levi", and studied the Bible in a place they called "the Temple".
That makes them seem Jewish.

WTF do Jews have to do with any of this you fucking morons???
Swapping one scapegoat for another....
On the other hand the above is semi-correct. The wierdo cult was a wierdo mix of all kinds of religious influences. If one can go so far as to call the incoherent mixing of superficial symbols influence.
