One Dead, (several) Injured... at Jewish Federation in Seattle (Muslim "Angry" at Israel)
KING5-TV ^ | 7/28/2006 | n/a

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."

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.

After all that has happened, and the Muslims have remained so silent, never once speaking up for America or her troops, they are out in the streets protesting for Hezbollah.

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.

History.

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?

The paki punk was from Pasco. Eastern Washington. High Desert. Pasco's a airline deadhead, and a freight interchange nexus. A couple of big rail yards -- BN, UP. A lot of truck traffic.

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.

"Now, will these oh so lefty citizens get serious?"

Lefty reply: There is a lot of anger against what Israel is doing. He was just expressing his rage in an inappropriate way. You could say that the Israeli attack against innocent civilians is just like these murders. Who are we to condemn?

Look into a guy named Antonio Gramsci.

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.

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.

I don't really think there is much difference between religion and politics where Muslims are concerned. That is part of the problem, their religion dictates their politics. As far as racially, what race is a Pakistani? And a Jew? Are they different races?

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.

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.

Now that the killing is on our own streets, I wonder if daily life will change, with metal detectors everywhere, not just at airports?

I hear that in Israel every street has police or soldiers with machine guns.

Will America become like those bad apocaplytics science fiction movies where cites look like armed camps?

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 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.
