Muslim says Quran justified attack in N.C
Chicago Sun Times ^ | March 22, 2006

Posted on 03/25/2006 10:21:23 PM PST by Lorianne

RALEIGH, N.C. -- The man who hit nine people with a sport utility vehicle on the University of North Carolina's Chapel Hill campus wrote a letter to a television reporter saying he read the Quran's 114 chapters 15 times and found that the Muslim holy book justified the attack.

''I did not act out of hatred for Americans, but out of love for Allah instead,'' Mohammed Taheri-azar, 22, wrote in a letter to Amber Rupinta dated March 10 posted on WTVD's Web site.

Police say that just before lunchtime March 3, Taheri-azar drove a rented 2006 Jeep Cherokee through the Pit, a popular gathering place at the school from which he graduated. The SUV hit nine people, but none was injured seriously. He then drove off and calmly called 911 to surrender.

Taheri-azar faces one charge of attempted first-degree murder and a felony assault count for each of the nine people hit. He is being held in lieu of $5.5 million bail.

In the letter, Taheri-azar reiterated what he has told law officers and a 911 dispatcher, that the attack ''was in retaliation for similar attacks orchestrated by the U.S. government on my fellow followers of Allah in Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine, Saudi Arabia, and other Islamic territories.''

Taheri-azar wrote that he began his readings of the Quran in June 2003. He called the book ''a scientific and mathematical miracle, so there can be no doubt that it is from a supernatural source.''

He's a scumbag, but he's quite right about the implications of his holy book..... the entire Muslim world likes to lie about this to the infidels when convenient, but to themselves all would acknowledge and many would applaud this guy's correct interpretation of the Koran.

In the name of Allah, the merciful, the compassionate.

To whom it may concern:

I am writing this letter to inform you of my reasons for premeditating and attempting to murder citizens and residents of the United States of America on Friday, March 3, 2006 in the city of Chapel Hill, North Carolina by running them over with my automobile and stabbing them with a knife if the opportunities are presented to me by Allah.

I did intend to use a handgun to murder the citizens and residents of Chapel Hill, North Carolina but the process of receiving a permit for a handgun in this city is highly restricted and out of my reach at the present, most likely due to my foreign nationality.

I am a servant of Allah. I am 22 years of age and I was born in Tehran, Iran. My father, mother and older sister immigrated to the United States in 1985 when I was two years of age and I’ve lived in the United States ever since.

I attended elementary, middle and high school in North Carolina and I was accepted into the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I began my college career in August 2001 and graduated in December 2005 with a bachelor’s degree in psychology and philosophy with Allah’s help.

I do not wish to pursue my career as a student any further because I have no desire to amass the impermanent and temporary fame and material wealth this world has to offer. However I made the decision to continue my studies and to graduate from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill so that the world will know that Allah’s servants are very intelligent.

Due to the killing of believing men and women under the direction of the United States government, I have decided to take advantage of my presence on United States soil on Friday, March 3, 2006 to take the lives of as many Americans and American sympathizers as I can in order to punish the United States for their immoral actions around the world.

In the Qur’an, Allah states that the believing men and women have permission to murder anyone responsible for the killing of other believing men and women. I know that the Qur’an is a legitimate and authoritative holy scripture since it is completely validated by modern science and also mathematically encoded with the number 19 beyond human ability. After extensive contemplation and reflection, I have made the decision to exercise the right of violent retaliation that Allah has given me to the fullest extent to which I am capable at present.

I have chosen the particular location on the University campus as my target since I know there is a high likelihood that I will kill several people before being killed myself or jailed and sent to prison if Allah wills. Allah’s commandments are never to be questioned and all of Allah’s commandments must be obeyed. Those who violate Allah’s commandments and purposefully follow human fabrication and falsehood as their religion will burn in fire for eternity in accordance with Allah’s will.

Sincerely yours,
Mohammed Reza Taheri-Azar

To the PC ridden MORONS including Bush that keep calling this a religion of peace and keep attacking those of us that aren't swallowing the bu!!$hit, I say READ THE KORAN!

I keep saying that to people that attack me for not buying the "religion of peace" lie. Read their "holy book." They don't like us, they want us dead.

It's bad enough that he tried to kill people, but on top of that, he had to pollute the environment by driving an SUV.

The liberals would have him hanged for that alone.

''I did not act out of hatred for Americans, but out of love for Allah instead,''

This is very familiar.

It's what the Klan says after crossburnings and lynchings. "It's not that we hate them, it's because we love the white race," etc etc. etc.

Then did he raise on high the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, saying, "Bless this, O Lord, that with it thou mayst blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy."

And the people did rejoice and did feast upon the lambs and toads and tree-sloths and fruit-bats and orangutans and breakfast cereals ... Now did the Lord say, "First thou pullest the Holy Pin.

Then thou must count to three. Three shall be the number of the counting and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither shalt thou count two, excepting that thou then proceedeth to three. Five is right out.

Once the number three, being the number of the counting, be reached, then lobbest thou the Holy Hand Grenade in the direction of thine foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it."

Having fought in military combat, and having studied nut cases somewhat, I find the arguments of some nut cases funny, when they pretend they are in military combat.

If this particular nut case wishes to believe his action constitutes military combat because his religious book told him so, then let him chew on something equally stupid while he rots in jail.

I happen to think we removed the Taliban and we removed Saddam because they were co-conspirators in the actions against America. Now we have a lone nut case who takes action against Americans. How does he have a ghost of a prayer of a chance of anything working out for him if we could flatten two countries half way around the globe for having had the same intentions?

I simply find it lewdly obfuscating that someone would pretend that his study of the Koran justifying this crime is somehow news worthy. Lewd, in that somehow the Koran deserves reverence for all the abominations justified in its name.

Because, as you know (being military), we don't dare use our best weapons. If we did, the war would be over in a matter of days.

Proof that he's delusional. the Quran says the earth is flat, among many other ridiculous things.

There have been, to my best knowledge only 4 books ever written that should have never been written. They are:
The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion
Mein Kampf
The Turner Diaries
and finally the koran

Each of these screeds has one common thread to them, outside of their generally hateful character. They are intensely, nay, rabidly anti-Semitic. It does make one wonder why...
