Okay, Jew bashers. Try and defend the attempted murder of these innocent people by a Muslim. I dare you:
A jihad murder in Seattle. “One dead, at least five injured in shooting at Jewish Federation in Seattle,” from KING5.com, with thanks to Ken:
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.
Police have taken one person into custody. Seattle police spokesman Rich Pruitt said police are confident that only one shooter was involved.
Sources told KING 5 the suspect is a Pakistani man with a criminal background. He is from the Tri-Cities but his citizenship is unknown. Officials are on the way to the Tri-Cities 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.
If he has no ties to Al-Qaeda, Hamas, or Hizballah, officials will hasten to assure us that this was not a terrorism-related murder. After all, non-Muslims go on killing sprees, don’t they? Of course; but until officials address the ideology that fuels killings such as this, there will be a peculiarly high occurrence of “random” incidents such as this in which the one who “snaps” is, coicidentally, a Muslim who believes deeply in jihad warfare.
No Islam. Know peace.
The extent of the victims’ injuries was not immediately known. A SWAT team was searching the downtown building for any other possible victims or shooters, police spokesman Rich Pruitt said.
“People got shot, some of our co-workers,” Patti Simon said in a phone interview, her voice shaking. “I just got back from Israel and made it out of there a half hour before the rockets started.”
Simon, who sells advertising for the federation’s newspaper, was working on the first floor when she heard screaming, shots and what sounded like furniture crashing on the floor above.
“We heard this horrible screaming on the floor above us and shots,” the 52-year-old said. “We didn’t know what was happening.”
Simon called up to her co-workers on the second floor, but got no answer, so she called the police and fled the building.
One person shot in the abdomen and another shot in the arm were being taken to Harborview Medical Center, KING-TV reported.
Police blocked off several city blocks to investigate. Simon said the federation building has security. “Somebody must have lied their way in,” she said.
