Utah mall gunman was Srebrenica survivor, cousin says
CNN ^ | 15 Feb 2007 | Reuters

Posted on 02/15/2007 8:28:40 AM PST by Red6

CERSKA, Bosnia (Reuters) -- The 18-year-old gunman who shot five people to death in a Salt Lake City, Utah, shopping mall was a survivor of the siege that ended in the Srebrenica massacre of 8,000 Muslims in Bosnia's 1992-95 war, a cousin said on Wednesday.

Sulejman Talovic, who was killed by police after Monday's shooting spree in which he also wounded four people, fled his village with his family during the Bosnia war to Srebrenica, a U.N.-protected enclave, Redzo Talovic said.

They spent two years in the town, during which Bosnian Serb forces besieged the enclave and Talovic's grandfather was killed by shellfire, Redzo Talovic said.

Utah mall gunman was Srebrenica survivor, cousin says

...and everybody knows that the Mormons were complicit in that crime against humanity so that explains shooting up a mall. /s

In another posting, a freeper clarified he left 2 years before this. Anyone confirm this?

Yes, I read this in the newspaper account. Also, if you do the math it shows that he was four years old at the time. Typical Muslim BS ... they are always the victim.

"Oh well, 8,000 potential terrorist isn't bad."

Count among the ones they missed the girl who spent her high school years living with my BIL and SIL after her parents sent her to the U.S. For two years I was unaware that she was even muslim. She graduated from an American high school with honors, returned to Europe for college and vet school, and is now a veterinarian and researcher. I know this will surprise you, but the whole time she was here she failed to shoot anybody, blow anything up, or even threaten anybody.

Wow... CNN makes a good point!

Our open door policy to 'victims' and 'refuges' has loaded our country with MILLIONS OF TICKING TIME BOMBS

Is that the point of their story???

Congress went along with it and funded it. At the time I couldn't figure out why we were siding with the Muslims against the Christian Serbs. At the least we could have butted out.

The timeline never does add up! Lies damned lies and more lies masquerading as excuses.

What's weird is that no one in the press is capable of comprehending or reporting the truth, which is that despite what you may assume about a "UN safe haven" the Muslim MILITARY FORCES in Srebrenica (under the bloodthirsty Nasir Oric) went out and massacred thousands of Serbs in surrounding villages.

Hence 1) the Serbs would have been justified in killing the Mulsim military forces as revenge;
2) but they didn't!
3) Srebrenica as an anti-Serb rallying cry is an hoax.

I don't buy the "slaughtered" figures either. Or the "innocents" for that matter.

It will remain a part of the Impeached President's legacy, that he came in on the WRONG SIDE of the war in Serbia.....

The Democrats, currently screaming over the claim they were lied to about the justification for war against Iraq -- are SILENT over the lies told of 100,000 Muslims slain by the Serbs in their "Ethnic Cleansing" operation.....

Would that it were true.... Perhaps this murderous sonuvabitch would have been among the "cleansed"....

A far stronger case of Muslim "ethnic cleansing" of Christians and Christian Churches in Kosovo could be proved.

Semper Fi

They're called "sleepers".

She's probably testing the fatal dose rates of sarin and sending the info to Ayman al-Zawahiri.

Hats off to your BIL and SIL for helping our enemies.

If what I just wrote made you sad or angry,
it was probably just a joke.

I think their end game is beginning to become clear based on the following article.

"In the Fight Against Terrorism, Some Rights Must Be Repealed
By Junaid Afeef

http://www.ispu.us/pages/articles/2914/articleDetailPB.html

So long as guns remain available to the general public, there will always be the threat of terrorists walking into a crowded restaurant, a busy coffee shop or a packed movie theater and opening fire upon unsuspecting civilians.

The Second Amendment is not worth such risks."

This appears to be a Muslim front organization based on its list of scholars.

I am beginning to believe this and the other attacks by "misguided young muslims" is designed to get the "we must protect everyone crowd in congress" to call for more gun control and prevention of hate speech. I Remember the "We will bury you from within" speech by Nikita Khrushchev many years ago. It is happening NOW. Maybe not the Russians but the mussies listened and learned from the weakness of our left. They want us disarmed and speechless.

This article implies a dangerous rationale. If being saved from a life threatening situation is reason for a person to go off the deep end and murder large numbers of the culture that saved the individual, then we should expect many other ethnic groups to "snap" and become mass murders. At present, at least, this is not happening.

We don't have, say, Vietnamese youths taking shotguns to malls, attacking Israeli airline counters, being snipers randomly killing people, attacking charity offices, etc. What is different here? It is the religion!!!I repeat what I said on another thread, we need to know as much as is possible about this young man and what motivated him. Does he have like minded friends in SLC or did he internalize his hatred? What chat room and web sites might he have visited? What were his reading habits. What does the cleric at his Mosque preach about? Not all Bosnian Muslims believe as he did, so what sent him into action? An unemotional examination of the background of this fellow needs to be made and made public.

Clinton did nothing when 1 million were slaughtered in Rwanda, but when a few Muslims die in a civil war it was "Bombs Over Belgrade."

...he was four years old at the time...And the article says he fled the city with his family, as if he was in charge. In actuality, his family fled the city, taking him along. But don't expect anyone in mainstream media "journalism" to be asked to have any instruction in the English language as part of their education.

It appears that only individual Muslims are responsible for specific crimes, whereas all Christians are responsible for the wrongdoing of specific Christians.

Yes. The perp's family left two years before the massacre. The MSM is creating confusion on this fact to create sympathy.

I would not consider her a true koran abiding muslim any more than I would consider Timothy McVeigh a Christian.
