Suspected Israeli serial killer arrested in U.S.
haaretz ^ | 8/12/10 | Yossi Melman and The Associated Press

Posted on 08/12/2010 9:12:58 AM PDT by Nachum

An Israeli man, Abed al-Azzam, 34, suspected in a series of stabbings in Virginia and Michigan was arrested at the Atlanta airport as he tried to board a plane bound for Israel.

A spokesman for U.S. Customs and Border Protection said the agency's officers arrested the man at about 10 p.m. Wednesday night at Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, as he attempted to board a Delta flight for Tel Aviv.

The suspect was handed over to the FBI and Atlanta police.

An Israeli man, Abed al-Azzam

I posted this piece as it had the man's name. American papers seem to have left this out. Can't imagine why...

WHHHAAAAA???

This guy must be a patsy.

Israeli man? Call me insensitive but that does not sound Israeli to me. An undercover convert?

And NO US media will report on him as an Arab Muslim.

The press will probably claim he had ties to a right wing militia.

Israeli, Israeli, Israeli, Israeli. That’s the one descriptive that dominates all of these stories.

How about Arab? Or, as seems likely enough, Muslim?

Could be a Christian Palestinian, of course, but I somehow doubt it.

It will be interesting to see his picture.

The sketch of the suspect certainly didn’t look like an Arab-Israeli. Looked more like a guy on a commercial for Ford trucks.

That sounds like a nice Jewish name.

With definite Amish overtones.

I just read the article posted on Fox News. When it seemed apparent they had omitted the name, I had no difficulty guessing that it was some Arab Israeli.

Actually, other sources are identifying his name as Elias Abuelazam.

If his first name is indeed “Elias,” there is a strong possibility that he is an Arab “Christian,” at least from a religious identity standpoint.

Funny, I was thinking that the sketch they had out there, along with the fact that he was targeting primarily blacks, they weren’t far off trying to link him with the tea party!

That’s my guess. Israel allows Arabs within its border to have Israeli citizenship.

This guy is homicidally crazy like many an Arab, but in an unusual way. Maybe he believes all blacks are Jewish converts like Sammy Davis was? Or worse, maybe he’s Jewish (after all, he is Israeli) and thinks all blacks are Black Muslims?

There are over a million arabs living in Israel, so it’s possible that this man could be an arab.

You’re right, it doesn’t. I wasn’t even thinking about that, so I’m going to blame it on too little coffee. :)

When I heard ABC News radio describing this guy as a white Jewish man from Israel who stabbed black men only, then I knew something was up.

(They are conveniently down-playing the fact that not ALL of the victims were black men.)

If it turns out that he’s an Arab who has Passport access to Israel, and that he was an equal-opportunity jihadi, then the media will no longer report on it.

Story line: White, Jewish Israeli stabs black men.

And THAT’S the story they want the public (and blacks) to believe because they desperately need that story to help energize Democrats and Blacks right now.

What’s the death toll have to be before such killings would be considered a terrorist attack?

This was a terrorist attack(s) taking place on Obama’s watch, so the “T” word will not be used.

That’s interesting. No evidence that the killer is a Jew (and good evidence he’s a Muslim), but they’re spinning against Israel.

Furthers my belief that Israel needs to give up the PR war and go for stark fear and ethnic cleansing.

Maybe he changed his name to an Arab name because his lifelong dream was to work at a dead end job in a dumpy Arab convenience store in Flint, Michigan and he knows how Muslims discriminate against Jews.

if he has “al” added to his last name he is a Muslim and, IIRC, he’s done the required trip to Mecca

Years ago we had a killing in Pittsburgh. The perp was black, and the police sketch that was ultimately released looked just like a character from Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids.

Obviously that sketch artist is now working in Flint.

Hmmm...I think the artist doing the sketch needed to use a little more “shading”.
