LGF has the Seattle shooting—in which several women at the Jewish Federation were attacked, one fatally—covered.
- For now, it’s being reported that it was a pakistani man, with a criminal record. Expect we’ll find mental illness in his background as well.Posted by aaron_ on 2006 07 29 at 12:58 AM • permalink
- Lets just hope his future is short and excruciatingly painful.
What kind of dog would shoot a bunch of unarmed women? And a pregnant one too?
Apologies to all dog lovers, I shouldnt have said that, most dogs have more humanity.Posted by The_Wizard_of_WOZ on 2006 07 29 at 01:13 AM • permalink
- #1 Expect we’ll find mental illness in his background as well.
The APA’s DSM-V has not identified Islam as a mental disorder…yet!
Is it possible – is it conceivable – that the West is losing its war in Seattle?

- Haven’t been to the LGF thread, but the Seattle cops are now calling this a hate crime.Posted by richard mcenroe on 2006 07 29 at 02:09 AM • permalink
Six women were shot – one fatally – this afternoon at the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle by a man who told a witness he was upset about “what was going on in Israel.”
It doesn’t leave a lot of doubt does it?
However, there is a history of American law-enforcement unwilling or unable to identify Jihad.
Robert Spencer notes:
If he has no ties to Al-Qaeda, Hamas, or Hizballah, officials will hasten to assure us that this was not a terrorism-related murder. After all, non-Muslims go on killing sprees, don’t they.
- It’s even worse than it appear close up. I’m in Portland, just down the road, and have local news to rely on here. Here are some aspects of it Charles hasn’t reported on and you probably haven’t heard:
—The FBI says it’s not “terrorism related”. So no worries. The guy announced a political motive and then went about a massacre of women, but the FBI says it ain’t terrorism. Whew.
—The shooting took place just moments after a lefty-Islamist pro-Hezbollah rally just a few blocks away. No one has picked up on this, let alone suggested a connection.
—The mayor of Seattle (already reeling from a month of terrible multiple murders) announced that the City will do what ever it takes to perserve the peace, and, so, has ordered extra protection around Jewish temples and……mosques.
—The push to label this a “hate crime” and not, say, “murder” is well underway. The goal is to use the emotions of the moment to make “hate speech” and “hate crimes” legislation un-opposible. Once in, the Left will then use them to criminize conservative speech. Murder *is* a hate crime. No need for a separate offense….
—Not sure how the locals are taking it yet….Posted by NewSisyphus on 2006 07 29 at 02:24 AM • permalink
- 5: The politics in Seattle are about as far to the left as you can get without a hammer and sickle on your flag. I don’t think they’re too concerned about losing any war there.
I’d recommend Sound Politics as a good place to watch how the local MSM tries to spin this. I saw a little bit of the local news coverage this afternoon, and already they were trying to emphasize the fact that the motive was unknown.
- Maybe the blastafarians are getting frustrated with all this political correctness, too. Muslim guy walks all the way through LAX, past thousands of targets, to shoot up the El Al people. FBI is baffled as to his motive. Over a dozen Muslim guys in Canada plot havok. Mounties are baffled as to their motive. This guy announced his religion and why he was on a killing spree at the top of his lungs.
- Hey, people, they have an obligation to lead the ignorant proles (that’s us) away from a violent backlash against the Religion of Peace. The fact that they cannot point to anything like what these savages do, matters not at all. We’re all just a beer or two away from mobbing the nearest mosque. Of course, this kind of lying to the ignorant proles practically guarantees that sooner or later just that kind of thing will happen. What choice will people think they have when their elected officials pretend the dangers facing us don’t exist.
- I’m sure there will be a giant effort to get this guy off on mental-health grounds. The crime itself will be lost in a forest of explanations and excuses. After all, the poor man was soooo upset by “Israeli aggression against Lebanon”, and he’s a Muslim in America, therefore obviously mistreated by all and sundry. And after all, it was only women he shot. Jewish women at that.
I live only a few miles north of a huge mosque. Every day I expect to hear that some skinhead group has bombed it, or maybe not even skinheads, because Muslims will keep wailing that they are being mistreated in America until they finally achieve it.
- #19: Precisely, Salty. Putting this in the larger context, one of the few things that a government is unquestionably empowered to do is to provide for the common defense and to protect the nation’s borders. When it fails to fulfill this most basic duty – while, I might add, flooding the country with pork barrel spending projects – it begins to lose its credibility and even its purpose altogether.
- He screamed, “I’m a Muslim and I hate Israel” so he shoots defensless women. Sounds like par for the course for the ROP. I”m surprised he wasn’t holding a five year old Muslim child in front of himself for protection. But what’s all the excitement? He’s only a lone nut with no apparent religious, ethnic, political or other affiliations and with unknown motivation. (Only a coincidence all the women were Jews.) Here is a brief, far from complete,summary of the other Lone Nuts who have baffled police. (This was previously posted but, I think, is appropriate here.)
Feb or March 2006 Muslim runs over students at North Carolina U.23/03 Sgt. Hasan Akbar kills Major Gregory Stone and Capt. Christopher Seifert, wounded 14 other US soldiers in Iraq, he had attended a Saudi-financed mosque in South Central Los Angeles, threw grenades among sleeping soldiers, In hsi diary he wrote,”My life will not be complete until America is destroyed.” Declared a Lone Nut. Not even classified as a terrorist by the US military.//28 October, 2002 J. Muhammed and Solvo, are arraigned for the murder of at least 10 innocent men women and children in the Washington D. C. area. They had a lab top, global tracking system, expensive guns in car. Known to have flown all over the USA and to have own travel agent. Declared lone nuts.//4 July, 2002, Hadayet, an Egyptian, heavily armed, killed some Jews at El Al LAX airport and was declared by the FBI, less than an hour after the attack, to be a Lone Nut. Later the FBI added that he may have been despondent. (He owned a Jaguar and a Mercedes, enough to make anyone distraught enough to grab pistols and a knife to kill a few Jews. But what really depressed him was the American Flag his neighbor put up after Sept. 11).// 23 May, 2002, P. Gott, a practicing Muslim, carries a Quran and a shotgun into Louis Armstrong International Airport in New Orleans and shoots a US Department of Defense employee. Declared a Lone Nut.//22 December, 2001, R.

Declared to have acted alone except for help from Bassam Reyati, who admits concealing evidence and gets 5 years probation and a $1000 fine.//23 January 1993, Mir Aimal Kasi kills and wounds CIA employees. Declared a Lone Nut. His defense was that he was a brain damaged loner.//1991 El Sayed A Nossair murdered Rabbi Meir Kahane. The murderer (unknown at the time) was declared a Lone Nut by the FBI. Later Nossair was tied to the WTC bombing in 1993 and subsequently tried for Kahane’s murder.
