Malaysia says arrests 7 Muslim terrorists suspected of planning attacks

KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) – Malaysian police said on Sunday seven members of an Islamic State (IS) cell had been arrested in a three-day operation carried out across the Southeast Asian country.

The operation was launched in four states on Jan. 22, ahead of Monday’s International Conference on Deradicalisation and Countering Violent Extremism that Malaysia is hosting.

Police said the suspects had received instructions to carry out attacks in Malaysia by Syrian-based IS members, including Bahrun Naim, an Indonesian militant named as the mastermind of Jan. 14 suicide attacks in Jakarta which killed seven people.

    oops , isn’t this the Nation that Muslims hold up as their example of a Peaceful muslim population ?

    Oh well, good luck for any Imam trying to tell us the 99.99% of all the muslims are peaceful and reject violence and sharia law .
    I’ve been asking muslims to give me the list of the muslims Nations those 99.99% live in.
    So far , ZERO .
    But don’t tell Justin that because in his fantasy World we are getting only the peaceful muslims that reject the quran among the 50,000 rapefugees he’s bringing in.

    Another case of Islamophobia running rampant across the world. What about that atrocity in Peterborough, where thousands of women could have burned to death if it wasn’t for the brave actions of Trudeau’s imam there. By telling women they should always stay home and have sex, he saved lives, Praise mohammad.

    If only Israel would go back to the pre-1967 borders this never would have happened in Malasyia.
