Times Square: A Failed Act of Jihad?

Shocker of shockers: American officials declared that the failed car bomb that forced the evacuation of New York's Times Square was an "act of terrorism." I'm glad they are here to tell us these things.

But who could have perpetrated such an act? Perhaps Christian fundamentalists?

The perps are not yet known (the BBC informs us that "Investigators are poring over a wealth of evidence to find out who tried to detonate a car bomb in Times Square"), but an important clue may be found in this Telegraph article on the bomb today:

The location is also adjacent to the Viacom building, fuelling speculation that it might be linked to the company's controversial South Park cartoon which recently depicted Prophet Muhammad in a bear suit.

Aha! Could be a coincidence, of course. Time will tell.
