All you mosques look alike to me

According to CNN:

While there were "no identifiable or specific threats," an FBI official in Chicago said suspicious packages addressed to U.S. destinations found on cargo planes abroad warranted the precautions.

"Since two of the suspicious packages that were intercepted were addressed to religious institutions in Chicago, all churches, synagogues and mosques in the Chicago area should be vigilant for any unsolicited or unexpected packages, especially those originating from overseas locations," said FBI Special Agent Ross Rice.
CNN had the sense to headline the story, "Chicago synagogues warned to watch for suspicious packages," which might spare the local imams, ministers, and priests from rummaging too deeply through the junk mail. But it's scary to think that Agent Rice seens to believe that, even though the bombs came from Yemen, were put together by al Qaeda, and were addresses to synagogues, all "religious institutions" are equally endangered.
