    Attacks in the USA, GERMANY, India, and now Austria. Is it becoming more dangerous to attend JW meetings?

    Explosive device found at Jehovah's Witness meeting in Austria

    "A package containing explosives has been found at a congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses in Austria.

    As it turned out on Saturday, it could have "potentially caused great damage," the police reported. The service took place on Friday evening in Kalsdorf, to the south of the southern city of Graz. Around 50 people were in attendance.

    The package was discovered in the entrance area of the building. The police arrived, cordoned off the area and recovered the package. The operation lasted all night because explosives experts feared that the parcel was dangerous and could only move it with extreme caution.

    After a thorough investigation, a police spokesman said on Saturday: "It is an unconventional, homemade, but basically functional explosive device."

    According to the police, state security was investigating.

    There was no information on Saturday about possible perpetrators or the background to the incident.

    Last year, there were already two incidents involving explosives at Jehovah's Witness organizations in Austria.

    Well, looks like someone is disgruntled.

    Anecdotally this can look significant, but I wonder how this stacks up statistically against other worldwide high control religions, especially of similar size? Do similar terrorist attacks occur with similar frequency to Mormon groups, for example?

    BTW, it's terrible that someone is targeting the R&F. The GB are the ones hiding in bunkers and are the ones responsible for whatever beef the perpetrators of these atrocities have.
