More Muslims Arrested With Hundreds Of Cell Phones [Update 2]

Another update on our previous stories covering the three Muslim, Texas men arrested in Michigan with 1,000 cell phones who authorities believe were targeting the Mackinac bridge, which connects Michigan's upper and lower peninsulas. Reports Fox News:

The FBI said Monday it had no information to indicate that the three Texas men arrested with about 1,000 cell phones in their van had any connections to a known terrorist group.

Authorities had increased patrols on Michigan's 5-mile-long Mackinac Bridge after local prosecutors said investigators believed the men were targeting the bridge...

The FBI issued a news release Monday saying there is no imminent threat to the bridge linking Michigan's upper and lower peninsulas and that has no information indicating that the men have any direct link to a terrorist group.

If these men were working independently of any known terrorist groups than it looks like we have a problem with domestic Muslims. I said it before, we may be heading down the same road as Europe, with a growing population of Muslims with contempt for our country.

***Update, 6:27pm***

First of all, the Lansing State Journal got some info from The Detroit Free Press about the authorities' evidence that the Muslim men, apparently of Palestinian decent, were targeting the Mackinac bridge:

The Detroit Free Press, citing a law enforcement official familiar with the case who it didn't name, reported today that the phones plus photographs and videos of the bridge led authorities to believe the men were targeting the structure.

Also, LGF linked to Debbie Schlussel, who, despite what authorities said about the men having no connections to known terror groups, had this to say:

Sources tell that the men are from Palestinian Islamic Jihad, the group that works in concert with HAMAS in performing homicide bombings in Israel. The group once even considered merging with HAMAS, at the time that it was headed by University of South Florida professor Sami Al-Arian, a founder of the group.
