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.

I posted this piece as it had the man's name. American papers seem to have left this out. Can't imagine why...
That sounds like a nice Jewish name. /s
But, but, I read yesterday that it was definitely a white guy that did it?
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.
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!
Was he upset about the health care bill?
Free-lance Mossad with fake name...
That’s my guess. Israel allows Arabs within its border to have Israeli citizenship.
The Associated Press posted his name.
....I forget which ghetto cult he belonged to...
That was before anyone had seen him and knew what he looked like.
