Click On Detroit ^ | 8/12/2010 | no byline given

FLINT, Mich. -- A man suspected in a series of stabbings in Virginia and Michigan that resulted in at least 20 attacks and five deaths was arrested at the Atlanta airport as he tried to board a plane bound for Israel.

Authorities said the man was taken into custody at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta Airport at 10 p.m. on Wednesday.

Haven't seen much posted on this story on FR.

This is a typical MSM-style media adventure.

A man has stabbed 20 and killed 5 in the Flint, Michigan area.

Most of the victims were African-American.

The police released a sketch of the suspect, described as white, and he looked to be a good ol' boy in a trucker hat and a handlebar mustache in the sketch.

Now it turns out that the man fled to Leesburg, Virginia and then to Atlanta where he was caught boarding a plane for Tel Aviv.

His name has not been released and he is described as a "citizen of Israel."

Most "citizens of Israel" living in the Flint area are Palestinian Arabs.

Is this guy a terrorist with a new technique? The media has no analysis to offer.

Be nice if we at least had his name.

This must be pre detail release spin.

This dude was apparently an employee at some convenience store. Fits the "don't profile taze me bro" profile.

The press did not provide a name.

Therefore, the perp was someone the MSM doesn’t wish to accuse... in this case, it appears that he was an Arab.

Libs are so darned predictable.

“After the word went out that the man was on the loose in Flint, detectives in Leesburg, Va., investigating three stabbings reached out to the Michigan State Police on Sunday and began sharing information.”

Whatever happened to using non-metro-sexual expressions like “contacted” instead of “reached out to”. Geez, this reporter must smoke a pipe or something.

Mohammedan was the first thing to come to mind when I first heard this story. Stabbings as described were a popular pastime among Mohammedans when I worked in Jerusalem. Specifically, in the “Old City.” Its dark and crowded passageways gave ample opportunity for the usual suspects to emerge from the shadows, make a quick and unseen thrust with a blade, and then disappear in the flowing crowd. It got so bad at one point, the U.S. Consulate issued a warning to visitors not to wear baseball caps, or conduct themselves in a manner which might reveal their U.S. nationality. Those of us working there were required to notify the Consulate whenever we entered the Old City, and again after we exited. If I were a betting man, I'd say this clown attempted to trigger a race war. Anybody wanna’ bet his handlers will go for an even bigger target for the same purpose?

It reminds me of the Muslim sniper killings in DC.

Portray the killer - when you have no evidence to support such a theory - as a conservative white guy (I mean, the police sketch looks like some trucker you'd run into in a honkytonk dive bar) and play down the actual background of the non-conservative, non-white killer when he is caught.

"The man didn't display an unusual or angry attitude
toward African American customers", he said.
The serial stabber had been targeting black men.

Beecher residents listen as Abdullah Farah, manager of Kingwater Market,
as he talks with the press about the man suspected of stabbing 16 people
in Genesee County, killing five of them, that was arrested this morning
that worked for him from July 5 to Aug. 1 and was originally from Israel.

Love the caption! "Beecher residents listen?" By their looks and
gestures, it sure looks like they are not there to "listen" to Abdullah.

NPR seemed to be pushing the concept of "Those poor black people! How did this go on for so long?? Was it because the victims were black? Now, if the victims had been white, and the perp had been black -- don't you think the authorities would have made this a higher priority??"

I'll make my prediction: If this perp is a Muslim, media coverage will be made a lower priority.

BEECHER, Michigan — The manager and regular customers of a party store where the suspected Flint serial killer worked said he was a quiet guy who sometimes joked around.

Abdullah Farah, manager of Kingwater Market on Coldwater Road and Detroit Street in Beecher, said the man arrested this morning worked for him from July 5 to Aug. 1 and was originally from Israel.

The man didn’t display an unusual or angry attitude toward African American customers, he said. The serial stabber had been targeting black men.

“I’m shocked,” he said.

“Me and my employees and my sister were all working around this guy,” he said. “If he’s the guy, he should be hanged.”

Farah said the law enforcement task force investigating the case came into his store at 10 a.m. on Wednesday morning asking to see surveillance tapes. The police didn’t leave until 8 p.m. that night, he said.

Farah said the tapes showed the suspect working at the store during his usual shift, 3 p.m.-2 a.m. The tapes didn’t show any unusual behavior, he said.

Farah said the man abruptly stopped working for him Aug. 1 when he said he needed to go visit relatives in Virginia.

“He came in one day and said he needed a job,” Farah said. “I helped him.”

A suspected serial killer captured at the Atlanta airport has been identified as 33-year-old Elias Abuelazam, according to the Flint Journal.
AP / Michigan State Police This image provided by the Michigan State Police shows a composite sketch of a man they say is the Flint stabbing suspect. Authorities in Atlanta arrested a man in connection with a three-state serial stabbing spree.

A tip led Detroit police to the Kingwater Market in Mount Morris Township, Mich. , where the suspect is believed to have worked.

The newspaper confirmed Abuelazam was a suspect in 20 stabbings in three states by checking court records. Flint District Court Judge Tracy Collier-Nix signed a warrant Thursday for his arrest in connection with one of the stabbing cases.

Abuelazam is believed to be the man who was arrested, with an expired Israeli passport, about to board a Delta Air Lines flight to Tel Aviv Wednesday night.

Oh, I agree.

However, this brings up a couple of points that need to be pounded home:

(1) The media places no value on African-American victims of crime unless the perpetrator is a certified "evil white guy."

(2) Black victims of crime will be ignored by the media if foreign Muslims are involved, since the media cares more about them than African-Americans.

(3) Foreign Muslims are not the friends and brothers of African-Americans and their interests are not aligned, despite propaganda to the contrary.

All three of your points clearly show how racist liberal/Marxists are.

The only Neo-Nazis I have met have been liberal/Marxists. Every one of them ( without exception) has been a racist.

They hate Israel and Jews, and from their behavior, regardless of what comes out of their mouth, it is plainly evident they hate blacks and want them securely trapped on their liberal/Marxist plantations.

The Neo-Nazi liberal/Marxists are also profoundly bigoted toward Christians.

Filed Va worker’s comp claim in ‘05, denied in ‘06 - past statute of limitations. If you can believe it, perp caught his leg in a tarp a la Vince Coleman.

Has listed address in Leesburg. May have been planning to leave Leesburg in June ‘08 - he was trying to find a home for his dog then.

Thanks much.

Flint warrant says perp has a Bradenton FL address. I’m 100% sure of my Leesburg address, so this would be another one.

Someone jog my memory please - I think Bradenton has a connection to past jihadi activity.

Sami al-Arian?

Any story that can possibly be massaged in that direction will be.
