So we now have a new term in the lexicon: "Do-It-Yourself" Muslim terrorists.  More on the unsuccessful Muslim suicide bombing of an Italian military post.  This article from Italy is finally bringing the threat of individual, or small independent groups of Muslim terrorists into the mainstream media.  For too long, Western governments have passed off such attackers as mentally ill.  The only mental illness involved is Islam. 


Milan bomb cell 'do-it-yourself'
No link to terrorist groups, intelligence says

(ANSA) - Milan, October 13 - A man who let off a bomb outside a Milan police barracks Monday was part of a 'do-it-yourself' cell with two others with no links to jihadi groups, Italian intelligence said Tuesday.

The three acted alone and were not linked to al-Qaeda or other Islamist fighters, the sources said.

They formed a one-off cell but were ''no less dangerous because of their isolation and because they were ready to die for their cause''.

Police found some 40kg of ammonium nitrate and other bomb-making materials Tuesday and arrested the two accomplices of Mohamed Game, the Libyan who blew himself up early Monday after being spotted entering the barracks near the San Siro soccer ground.

The pair were named as Abdel Haziz Mahmoud Kol, an Egyptian neighbour of Game who allegedly drove him to the barracks, and Mohamed Imbaeya Israfel, a Libyan friend suspected of helping him make the bomb.

All three face the same charges in the bombing.
