One dead, at least five injured in shooting at Jewish Federation in Seattle
SEATTLE One person has been killed and at least five others have been injured in a shooting at the Jewish Federation at 2031 Third Ave. in downtown Seattle. One suspect has been taken into custody....
Sources told KING 5 the suspect is a 31-year-old Pakistani man with a criminal background. He is from the Pasco but his citizenship status or how long he has lived in the United States is unknown. Also unknown is what sort of criminal record he has. Officials are on the way to the Pasco to interview his family....
According to the Seattle Times, a man got through security at the Jewish Federation and told staff members, "I'm a Muslim American; I'm angry at Israel," then began shooting, according to Amy Wasser-Simpson, the vice president for planning and community services for the Jewish Federation.
A Harborview Medical Center spokesperson said five women were brought in, and three of them are in critical condition. They have not yet been identified. Their ages are 23, 27, 29, 19 and 43. The 43-year-old woman was reportedly shot in the abdomen. Two vicitms were in satisfactory condition: a woman, who's 17 weeks pregnant whowas shot in the arm and another victim with a knee injury....
...It's not yet known if the incident is politically motivated. The Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle says on its Web site that its mission is to "ensure Jewish survival and enhance the quality of Jewish life locally, in Israel and worldwide."
...Iantha Sidell, past chairperson of the Jewish Federation Center, said: "We believe in life and it's hard to believe there will ever be peace when you're dealing with people who don't value life."

Find out what beehive mosque he was a part of..do an "investigation" a brief one, and then EXTRACT EVERY undocumented illegal religion of hate/ on the public dole person that you can.
Pakistani man shoots 6 Jews and this is stated in the news report?
For sure, they will never have enough information to conclude this is a dreaded hate crime, will they? I think in this case they're not just anti-American, they're anti-Jew and anti-Israel.
What is it going to take to convince Americans that Islam simply isn't compatible with America?
I have puzzled this for quite some time, until the obvious (SO obvious I missed it) answer came to me not long ago. This will indeed sound loony to some, but I don't care.
I recently had a nasty little discussion with a nasty little teacher who whined about No Child Left Behind. (We'll leave aside my not wanting the federal gov't involved in education for the moment.) I slowly detected that what was REALLY bothering this guy was the focus on the basics. It seemed to me like he was truly OFFENDED that the NCLB law emphasized reading, writing, history...
BOOM! That was when it hit me.
See, teachers like this guy want these "soft" classes because that is where you get to mold not how a child thinks but WHAT he thinks. All these "health" classes and such are merely mind-shaping classes.
My point, finally, is that if an American is properly schooled in what this country was established to be, and how that has been perverted since Wilson and especially FDR, one will become alarmed at the rise of Islam in this country just as one would be by a rise in Fascism.
But we've taught our citizens to soften their standards, not to judge, because other points of view aren't bad, they're just different.
In many instance yes it's true, something isn't bad, it's just different from what you know. But how can anyone who knows anything about Islam think "OK, I'm just not getting it, so the fault is with my perception"?
Americans are so freakin scared of being accused of being judgmental i.e. "old fashioned" that they can't see a cancer taking root in our culture.
I don't like talking this way. But the difference between me and these libs is that I'm willing to risk being called names by idiots who don't know their country's history, so they are ignorant of the risks to it's well-being.
How many examples do people need to see to realize we are at war with, not militant Islam, but Islam?
I'm so furious right now....
This is why people aren't buying the MSM's product.
Political correctness run amok..
Learn about him and you'll learn about what's going on in the schools.
Sounds like a disproportionate response.
And the Hanford Nuclear Laboratory. I think we had better be checking up on his friends.
"Well, to those who always cry "Arab!" this is proof that this is an Islam issue, not an issue with the Arab ethnicity."
How do you figure that since islamics are supposed to be against all westerners and those of any other faith ?
This guy specifically targeted Jews and didn't seem to have any problem considering himself an American.
Who woulda thunk it?
Does it surprise you that Wikipedia hardly mentions his influence on US schooling?
a muslim angry at Israel.. wow that's a raririty.. canwe label this one for what it is? a terrorist attacks a jewish center!
I just hope they reacted in a proportional manner.
"It wasn't politically motivated!? Are they dense?"
Yes, they're dense, and yes, it was politically motivated. It's Muslim thuggery coming to this country. Don't stand for it.
The next idiot who tries to tell me that islam is one of the worlds 'great religions' and really is very peaceful I think I'll take his or her damned fool head off with my bare hands.
These people are animals.
Odd how they never teach these two to students. You'd think they'd want their free thinkers to know from where all this flows.
I've said for a long time that if things don't change, political correctness is going to kill us.
I know you are correct about us being in a war with Islam and I no longer care (haven't for a few years now) what anybody wants to call me. Sticks and stones.....
I figured it was a Muslim. Fortunately it was north of me, and I go south when I get off work so I didn't get caught up in it.
You are dead on Lurker. The nation is under attack and our enemies are using our core institutions to attempt to destroy us.
Our nation is currently facing a Jihad, a Migration and we are facing internal treachery.
I ponder about the children born today what future they may have to face.
Now more than ever our generation must stand strong and determined against the wave brought against us. For the future of tomorrow we MUST win today.
We can defeat a jihad and we can overcome a migration but it is the internal treachery that is the greatest danger that exposes us all to ruin.
You dont have to attend meetings at the Jihad Club to be a terrorist, you just have to watch the message on tv, or attend a Mosque where they lecture over and over, and go out on their own.
Geez, FBI not going to say Terrorism, Bull!!! A terrorist can act alone with messages over the air.
San Francisco-lite wanna-be.
To counter this we need to arm EVERYONE. If they are going to kill us anyway, may as well take a few with us...
it is getting to the point that, whenever I hear of something other than run-of-the-mill crime, I tend to suspect islamism.
sadly, I have found the suspicion to be justified more often than not.
glad you were nowhere nearby.
" Unknown immigration status "
I wouldn't call him an American just yet!
"put a bullet into his mad dog brain"
Looks like the battle field of this war is on our home turf.
Do we have to put the enemy on trial each time they attack us?
Too bad the SWAT team didn't get have better aim a bit sooner. Now we have to waste time with a trial.
Just yesterday the second banana terrorist appeared in the news saying that the whole world has unfolded as a battleground for muslims and a nut job goes on a shooting spree.
I think it's more than being scared. PC advocates and adherents actually like the dark side, in their heart of hearts (to varying degrees, of course).
Any virtue, if not strengthened with courage, is useless anyway.
Oh, the stupid news was reporting him as a Pakistani American.
Oh go ahead - everyone is entitled to call themselves an 'American' these days.
In Dearborn Michigan today, I saw grafitti on a Firestation street sign.
"Israelis are Terrorists"
I've lived in Dearborn for a while, but, except for the occasional rally, I've never seen this.
Now, a shooting in Seattle by a disgruntled Muslim.
I fear this will not be the last we hear of these things.
This IS a "hate crime", if ever there was one.
Kill him, immediately! No trial, no consideration, no chance, just like he gave those he shot. Sorry POS, camel turd!!
But maybe, just maybe, this will wake up a few people.
Melvil Dewey did the classification.
PubEd, is John Dewy.
Ya think this might get the liberal Jews in this country to forget about Gun Control and arm themselves ---NAH
The Fifth Column strikes! We have a dangerous cohort of arab sleeper agents in this country, ready to wreak havoc. Time to start putting them in internment camps. The sheeple in liberal Seattle and elsewhere need to WAKE UP! Islam is not a religion, it is an ideology of violence and hatred. The muslims are determined to destroy western civilization. We need to destroy them first.
The Israelis have managed to shoot suicide bombers BEFORE they have a chance to detonate.
If it'll save one child... ;-)
The writing is on the wall folks. I say put those huge secret high security detention centers in desolate areas discussed on conspiracy websites to good use. Criminalize Islam and halt all immigration legal or otherwise by all means. We have a splinter that will turn into an infection that will turn into an amputation that will turn into a national death certificate if things aren't addressed immediately without regard for political correctness. Or we can wait until millions are dead and every street looks like the Watts riots.
