Biden belatedly issued a statement on the Islamic terror attack in a Texas synagogue. It goes without saying that it makes no mention of Islamic terrorism.
There is more we will learn in the days ahead about the motivations of the hostage taker. But let me be clear to anyone who intends to spread hate—we will stand against anti-Semitism and against the rise of extremism in this country, it concludes.
When a Muslim terrorist with a heavy British Pakistani accent takes hostages in a synagogue in order to free ‘Lady Al Qaeda’, an imprisoned Islamic terrorist, the Biden takeaway is that…
1. It’s a problem with the rise of extremism in this country
2. There’s a lot more to learn about the motivations of the hostage taker beyond what he already shouted on the livestream and told the authorities
The FBI’s press conference wasn’t much better with the bizarre claim from FBI Special Agent in Charge Matt DeSarno that, he was singularly focused on one issue, and it was not specifically related to the Jewish community and we’re going to continue to find motive.
The terrorist didn’t accidentally walk into a synagogue. He took a temple hostage because he was there to support an antisemitic Islamic terrorist who at her trial had demanded that the jurors get DNA tests to prove that they’re not Jewish.
She said: “If they have a Zionist or Israeli background . . . they are all mad at me. I have a feeling everyone here is [Jewish] — subject to genetic testing. They should be excluded if you want to be fair.
The Aafia Foundation posted bizarre antisemitic rants about the degree of poisonous venum (sic) within the heart of American mainstream jewry.
But sure. This has nothing to do with the Jewish community. And before too long, the Biden administration, like the Obama administration, will be calling this a random attack on some folks.
