CAIRO (Ma’an) – The Egyptian army on Monday evening discovered and stormed what security officials described as “the biggest workshop for manufacturing explosives” in Sheikh Zuweid city in North Sinai Peninsula.

Egyptian military sources told Ma’an in el-Arish that they were alerted about a suspected lathe workshop in Sheikh Zuweid. When officers ransacked the workshop, added the sources, they found more than 250 kilos of explosives, more than 50 jerricans of sulfuric acid, 40 half-inch steel pipes, large sums of aluminum sheets, and about a ton of nails. The workshop also had five lathing machines.

The owner and two other suspected gunmen were taken into custody.

The sources added that a store belonging to the workshop’s owner was also discovered and it was full of spare car parts prepared to be smuggled into Gaza through tunnels. The owner of the workshop and the store was a major smuggler, according to Egyptian security sources.

Major smugger? Really? More like a major hero for assisting those who are desperate in need.

Although Arabic is my native language Im a tad bit forgetful. Is "Islam" the "Religion of Peace," or is it the "Religion of Submission?" Oh, oh, thats right..."Peace comes from submission." No wonder our region is so screwed up. When Muslims apply their time and energy towards building things that help others- instead of kill others- they will finally progress.
