There is now an investigation into someone who allegedly called the Church of Scientology and made threats against Scientology and Tom Cruise. The LAPD is addressing the threat that occurred in April, and specifically mentioned Tom Cruise, saying "Allah Akbar, Tom Cruise." The LAPD has gotten search warrants, and are now on the hunt for the man who called in the threats.
According to the Inquisitr, Scientology has other problems from within the organization, and Tom Cruise is on the defense. Ron Miscavige, father of Scientology leader David Miscavige, has written a tell-all book about Scientology which exposes David Miscavige as a megalomaniac and Tom Cruise as a pawn of Scientology. Ron Miscavige refers to Cruise and David Miscavige as having a Napoleonic complex and being power hungry.TMZ broke the news that Tom Cruise and Scientology are in the middle of an investigation that includes terrorism and a suicide bomber. The LAPD says that a man called into the Church of Scientology and made specific threats towards Cruise and Scientology.
"Are there any bombings I can do?" The man, who ID'd himself as a Muslim, said he "liked to do suicide bombings."
After that, the man started singing "Allah Akbar, Tom Cruise," over and over again. Allah Akbar is the phrase that many bomber have used when carrying out their crimes. The LAPD served AT&T with a warrant to try to trace the call.The International Business Times is reporting that right now, Cruise is not in danger in Los Angeles, as he is out of the country, working in London. Tom Cruise just celebrated his 54th birthday in London while filming The Mummy with Annabelle Wallis where he is doing many of his own stunts.
Many fans of The Mummy franchise are upset that Tom Cruise is taking the place of Brendan Fraser, but the Cruise movie will have a different twist according to the production staff.
"Cruise plays Navy Seal Tyler Colt who goes on a mission in the Iraqi desert to find a group of terrorists hiding out in a shelter. However, when Tyler reaches his destination, his team succumb to some mystical forces out of their control, which is when they realize they are actually in an ancient tomb. While his men end up turning on each other, Tom's character is the only one that makes it all the way deep into the tomb alive, where he finds an ominous black iron sarcophagus."
Is it possible that this new twist on The Mummy is angering some Muslim extremists?The Guardian explains that Tom Cruise and Scientology are no strangers to controversy, especially in the press. Recently, David Miscavige, the leader of the Church of Scientology, filed a complaint with the Press Standards Organization about an article that suggested that David Miscavige and Tom Cruise had a "bromance."
The article said that Cruise and Miscavige pal around, speaking a secret language, gambling and smoking cigars. It also suggested that Miscavige secretly records Cruise for his own private use. For sources, the article spoke to former members of The Church of Scientology.Tom Cruise allegedly gets special treatment by David Miscavige and the entire Church of Scientology, which Tom Cruise calls his second home. Treating Cruise like Scientology royalty is against the church laws, and many former members questioned his special treatment.
David Miscavige's complaint on behalf of The Church of Scientology was considered, and a decision was handed down to Mail Online.
"[Mail Online] had not demonstrated the process by which it had regard for the complainant's previous denials of the allegations."
IPSO ordered Mail Online to "publish its adjudication on the case in full on its website with a link on its homepage for 24 hours."
Do you think the suicide bomb threat against Tom Cruise and The Church of Scientology are real or a publicity stunt?
