Islamic Terrorism in Seattle, Jewish Woman Dead
Killing Jews is the logical consequence of calling them terrorists.
Terrorists deserve to die.
Killing Jews is the logical consequence of calling Israel a state engaged in genocide.
Supporters of genocide deserve to die.
The witness said the man identified himself as an American Muslim.Seattle Times:
One person was dead and five others were hospitalized this afternoon in after a shooting at the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle building in downtown Seattle by a man who declared he was "angry with Israel."Predictable:
Seattle police later arrested the alleged gunman, who reportedly had walked into the building between Lenora and Virginia streets on Third Avenue in Belltown and started shooting. One victim died at the scene, according to police....
All five of the wounded are women
Two women are in satisfactory condition. A 37-year-old woman, five months pregnant, One woman, who is 37 and 20 weeks pregnant, was shot in the forearm. The other woman was shot in the knee, Steele said.
David Gomez, an assistant special agent-in-charge for the FBI, said there is nothing to indicate the gunman is part of a larger organization.Which brings up an interesting question: must one belong to an organized group to be a terrorist?
I seem to recall that that nutjob who went up on the Temple Mount murdering Arabs was called a terrorist. And rightly so. He was a terrorist.
Seems to me that randomly killing members of an ethnic or religious group as a message to the larger group is the very definition of terrorism.
Me? I'm going to go buy a gun. I'm serious. UPDATE explanation: For the Instapundit peeps who don't know why I might need a gun, I'm not Jewish but am a proud supporter of Israel.
The reason for the gun? The death threats. Hundreds of them. All for criticizing the ROP over the years.
Suddenly those threats seem less idle than they did yesterday.
Blogfather too, with video of the arrest.
Update by Vinnie Bias? What bias? "Gunman" "employees claimed to be Muslim"
Uh....AP, care to explain since you also put this in the article?
Staff members said they overheard him saying "'I am a Muslim American, angry at Israel,' before opening fire on everyone," Meislin-Dietrich said.
