Warrant: Suspect In [UNC] Pit Attack Was Disappointed With Outcome
WRAL.com ^ | March 7, 2006

Posted on 03/07/2006 3:26:55 PM PST by southernnorthcarolina

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- A man who admits that he intentionally plowed into nine people on the UNC-Chapel Hill campus last week told authorities he was disappointed that more people were not around when he carried out the alleged attack.

In a search warrant released Tuesday, Mohammed Taheri-azar told authorities that for two years, he had been thinking about some type of attack because "the United States government had been killing his people across the sea."

Taheri-azar told authorities he had been carefully planning the attack for two months and had rented the Jeep Cherokee in which he drove on campus so that he could "run over things and keep going."

Full disclosure: I am a UNC grad, and proud of it. UNC, sadly, has become arguably the epicenter of liberalism in the South. Note, however, that this liberalism is centered on the administration (Erskine Bowles, President of the consolidated university including its flagship campus at Chapel Hill) and faculty (including the new distinguished professor, John Edwards).

The fact that UNC has become a home for defeated Dem pols (whether a retirement home or a platform from which to launch new political campaigns remains to be seen) should not obscure the fact that there are, among the student body, a good number of courageous conservatives. Today, a demonstration in the Pit (the campus gathering place where the incident took place) criticized the university for shying away from calling the incident terrorism, which it clearly was.

But the staff and faculty of UNC, consumed with political correctness, is loathe to offend anyone. Of course, by their reluctance to criticize Muslim fanaticism, they've managed to offend many more.

How long, I wonder, before the administration realizes that "Chapel" might be offensive to Muslims, and decides to change the university's name to UNC-Mosque Hill?

As a rule of thumb, I don't like to find myself in agreement with a loony muslim (is there any other kind?) but in this case I see eye to eye with him.

I'd of liked to have seen the students rip him from the vehicle, tear his arms off and beat him to death with them while shoving pork down his pie hole.

But it is college kids afterall.

Notice the "killing his people" part.

The followers of the cult of Islam do not consider themselves a part of "our country" but instead a part of the world body of Islam.

There are three types of Muslims 1) Terrorists 2) Those who actively support the terrorists and 3) Those who support the terrorists by their silence.

While there are some Muslims who speak out against this evil they are quickly sidelined by the first three.

And if they can imagine things like this happening almost every day, they'll have some idea about how the Muslims behaved in Kosovo over the past quarter century.

UNC requires its students to read a book about Islam. Perhaps they should require their students to read a book about Christianity, or American values. This guy doesn't get it.

A native of Iran, Taheri-azar has lived most of his life in the United States, living in Charlotte with his mother and sister. His mother had been a real-estate agent until the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, when she quit to do humanitarian work. Friends said she has been teaching English in Afghanistan.

Um, am I the only one who thinks this mother may need to be investigated a little, too? She's an Iranian immigrant who has lived in the U.S. for many years (most of her 20-something year old son's life) and working as a real estate agent and then suddenly, after 9/11, decides to head off to Afghanistan of all places, to "teach English"?

UNC requires its students to read a book about Islam.

This has become something of an urban legend. Each year, entering freshmen are "assigned" a book to read over the summer before their freshman year. I put the word "assigned" in quotes, because there is no penalty for failing to read the book; the book, in any given year, is the subject of ungraded seminars during freshman orientation. Two or three years ago, the "assigned" book did indeed deal with Islam; it is my understanding that it was a book about the Koran, and that it glossed over references to what fate should befall non-Islamists.

Don't get me wrong. I objected to the choice of reading material. It was a particularly tone-deaf choice in light of the fact that 9/11 was still fresh in everyone's mind -- which, of course, was why it was selected. The purpose of the "assigned" reading is to get the entering students out of their comfort zone, and to expose them to perspectives new to them. I have no problem with that concept -- if, once in a while, they'd pick a book on the conservative side. An abridged version of The Federalist Papers, for example. I'm not holding my breath.

His problem was the use of an SUV on liberal UNC's campus. Well before the mohammedan arrived at the pit, students were already running in terror at the sight of his SUV just passing by on the street. A similar dynamic took place once he finally left the parking lot and entered the pit, a student saw the SUV and like a prarie dog on watch, sounded the alarm sending students fleeing in panic before the SUV could begin accelerating.

Had the mohammedan, used a Prius, he might have achieved total surprise.

Even my favorite liberal and his family applauded the Republican/conservative students who protested at UNC demanding this heinous act be correctly termed an act of terrorism.

They still think merely "protesting something" merits respect, but in this case, they also agreed with the evil Republican protesters position.

Central North Carolina is not a good place to be.
The native-born population is few and far between, and recent local events (not just this one) have shown me that it is insane to assume even a minimum degree of community cohesion in any emergency, of any scale.

Hindsight being 20/20, we were better off in Florida.

That would be fine, as long as they didn't offend him.

Certainly the book you linked would qualify as a "fair and balanced" selection for freshman reading. As would this 107-year-old book.

This is not Islamic terrorism, that's just the excuse.

This is a kid that finally realized that after 4 years and $100,000 spent getting a double major degree in philosophy and psychology, he is still gonna have to work the fryolator at McDonalds for the rest of his life, because he hasn't shown enough mathematical aptitude or education to get to work the cash register.

Here I am, another Carolina grad, one of more conservatives than many might think were at Carolina during my years (1976-80, 1985-88). I have to agree with you in all respects. I have given very infrequently to UNC since my graduations, especially from law school. There were maybe 2 or 3 professors who were not flaming libs. Paul Haskell was among the conservative stalwarts. He taught Property, Trusts and Estates, and, understandably, Ethics. Despite Carolina's liberal (and theoretically open to all views) atmosphere, Prof. Haskell had a saying that I recall fondly to this day: "Law school sharpens your mind by narrowing it." This is UNC in a nutshell.

At some point, even UNC might reach a tipping point where the liberal crazies will be put in their place. I so look forward to that day.

I earned an MBA there between your two stints. The business school faculty had a few liberals, but it's hard to be an anticapitalist and teach at the business school at the same time. On balance, I didn't find much about the faculty or the student body that alarmed me, but then logic says I was in the least liberal corner of the campus.

On other threads, I've maintained that the UNC students are the least liberal group in Chapel Hill -- compared with the Administration (largely controlled by the Dem-majority General Assembly; the faculty; the largely unionized staff (health care workers at the University hospitals and Schools of Medicine, Dentistry, Nursing, and Pharmacy seem particularly prone to liberalism); the townspeople; and the "hangers-on" (University grads or dropouts who can't bear to leave, and open the usual college town collection of coffee houses, bars, bookstores, tee-shirt stores, art galleries, and so on).

Against this backdrop, it's amazing how many conservatives there are among the student body. But they're there, and in appreciable numbers, too.

I agree with you completely. You just have to keep your head low, I guess. Besides, conservative students are more likely to be actually studying while in school, or at least not standing out like a liberal sore thumb. Glad to meet another like-minded Carolina grad. Where are you now? I am in Lewisville, just outside of Winston-Salem.

Likewise. I am a native of Charlotte and a lifelong resident of the general vicinity, now living in exurban-transforming-to-suburban Weddington, in Union County.

Stop by the NCFR board and say hi.

That is pretty interesting. It's the first article I've seen so far that mentions that little factoid.

More “workplace violence.” Has America submitted yet? We the people haven’t but seems the government has become dhimmi.
Never heard of this. my prayers for ALL the victims and families.
