Muslim Terrorist Takes A Rabbi And Three Others Hostage In A Synagogue On Jewish Sabbath, FBI Says Religion Is Not Involved

It’s no joke that the FBI, under President Joe Biden, has gone woke.

This weekend’s violent incident at a Texas synagogue helps illustrate why.

On Saturday, an armed Muslim burst into the Congregation Beth Israel synagogue in Colleyville, Texas, during a Sabbath service and took the rabbi and three members hostage.

During a stand-off with law enforcement, Malik Faisal Akram demanded the release of Aafia Siddiqui, a Pakistani neuroscientist who is suspected of being linked to al-Qaeda.

Siddiqui, who has been called “Lady al-Qaeda,” is serving an 86-year prison sentence in Texas for reportedly trying to shoot U.S. Army officers in Afghanistan in 2010.

Part of the hostage incident was live-streamed on Facebook, and during that Akram, a British national was heard ranting about religion.

Around 9 p.m. Saturday night, the FBI rushed the synagogue and killed Akram. None of the hostages was hurt.

Yet in briefing the media afterward, FBI Special Agent in Charge Matthew DeSarno said the incident was not about the hostages.

“We do believe that, from engaging with the subject, he was singularly focused on one issue and it was not specifically related to the Jewish community,” he added. “We will continue to work to find motives and we will continue on that path in terms of the resolution of the incident.”

So a Muslim terrorist invades a synagogue on the Sabbath day and takes a rabbi and others hostage and demands the release of “Lady al-Qaeda” and it has nothing to do with their religion.

Others, however, were not persuaded about that.

Even Edward Ahmed Mitchell, the deputy director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, called Akram’s actions “antisemitic,” according to Fox News. So did Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, who tweeted, “This event is a stark reminder that antisemitism is still alive and we must continue to fight it worldwide.”

According to media reports around the time of her trial, Siddiqui had once been a volunteer at the Al Kifah Refugee Center in New York, whose members were suspected of killing Jewish activist Meir Kahane, and helped execute the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center.

The Guardian reported at the time that Siddiqui wanted to have her defense lawyers dismissed because they were Jewish and demanded that no Jews be seated on the jury.

She reportedly wrote a letter to intended for then-President Barack Obama that said Jews “have always back-stabbed everyone who has taken pity on them and made the ‘fatal’ error of giving them shelter…. and it is this cruel, ungrateful back-stabbing of the Jews that has caused them to be mercilessly expelled from wherever they gain strength. This is why ‘holocausts’ keep happening to them repeatedly! If they would only learn to be grateful and change their behavior!!”

But our Biden-led FBI does not see as a factor in the hostage-taking the religion of the hostages, whose captor demanded the release of a kindred spirit who hates the victims for who they are.
