Fireworks … Pipe Bombs, Same Difference When you Get Pulled Over By Police and You are Middle Eastern
Two Middle Eastern men, Ahmed Abda Sherf Mohamed and Yousef Samir Megahed, were charged Monday with possession of an explosive device. These two students at the University of South Florida in Tampa, were pulled over and arrested Saturday night in South Carolina and found with explosive devises in their vehicle. Police are stating that they were in possession of pipe bombs. Of course Ahmed and Yousef seem to have a different definition of an explosive device. They call them fireworks. Is there a terrorism connection or is it sky rockets? The mainstream media is deafening with their silence of reporting that the two men were muslim. If it were right wing Christian militia, that would be an entirely different reporting.

They admitted to having what they said were fireworks. Based on the officer’s judgment at hand, based on what he had seen, we judged it to be other than fireworks,” Berkeley County Sheriff Wayne DeWitt said.
Mohamed, 24, said he made pipe bombs from items he bought at Wal-Mart, according to an affidavit with his arrest warrant.

How long did it take for our prediction to come true, that this would be called racial profiling and be damned that they they were in possession of explosive devices? Not long at all.
Mohamed is a native of Kuwait and Megahed is Egyptian, the sheriff said. Both are in the country legally.
Ahmed Bedier, the executive director of a civil rights organization for Muslims in Tampa, criticized the arrest as racial profiling, an accusation South Carolina police refuted.
