So now it comes out that Faisal Shehzad was in financial trouble and had lost his home recently. Maybe he was just simply pulling a Joe Stack and not following orders of TTP, as S.I.T.E. was — as always — quick to claim. MSNBC tells us:
Chase Home Finance filed a foreclosure action against the couple last September, and the court dockets indicate that neither Shahzad nor his wife showed up to defend themselves. They were listed as “non-appearing” parties. The most recent papers were filed in the case on April 23, according to the Journal.
So maybe Faisal Shehzad is but another Joe Stack. Remember him?
On Thursday, Andrew Joseph Stack III flew a small plane into the IRS’s four-story office building in Austin, killing himself and at least one federal employee. Before the incident, Stack allegedly left a series of messages on a website expressing his disgust with the IRS, saying at one point that “violence not only is the answer, it is the only answer.”
Well, he was never declared “a terrorist” no matter how much Muslims screamed:
“Whenever an individual or group attacks civilians in order to make a political statement, that is an act of terror,” said Nihad Awad, the executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).
“Terrorism is terrorism, regardless of the faith, race or ethnicity of the perpetrator or the victims,” said Awad, adding in a statement that “if a Muslim had carried out the IRS attack, it would have surely been labeled an act of terrorism.”
And like Faisal’s, that too was “a criminal act by a lone individual” but see how the police and FBI refused to call that an act of terrorism:
In the hours after the crash, Austin Police Chief Art Acevedo told reporters that the incident looked to be “a criminal act by a lone individual.” And while Acevedo refrained from calling it an act of terror, he said the FBI, which is heading the investigation, would make the judgment call on how to categorize the crash.
A spokesman with the FBI’s San Antonio office on Friday said that the FBI was handling the case “as a criminal matter of an assault on a federal officer” and that it was not being considered as an act of terror at this time.
This also reminds me of many, many terrorist acts inside U.S. by Jewish guys (and they were NOT always acting alone) but they always got away without being labeled ‘terrorists’ or their crimes being labeled as “terrorism”. Among these Irv Rubin of the Jewish Defense League (JDL) certainly comes to mind. One of his partners killed Alex Odeh, the local chairman of the pro-Palestinian American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC), with a bomb but was allowed to escape to Israel and all was forgotten. Irv Rubin was of course allowed to continue his terrorist activities for years until he couldn’t be ignored any more. He died in prison before he could stand trial. But did he die by his own hands as the official story goes or he was done away with is up to you to decide. (BTW: they never used the word “terrorist” with his name. The closet they came to was to describe him and his partners as “Militant Jewish Activists”
Wonder why no one remembers this more serious event at Times Square from only a few days ago:
Maybe because no Muslims were involved… 😉
