More poisonous fruit from the misinformation and miseducation of Americans concerning Islam. The lone jihadi who gunned down helpless Jews in cold blood at the Jewish Center in Seattle was acting in the name of Islam. And yet the jury acquitted him on one charge and was "hopelessly deadlocked" on the other charges. He chased a Jewish woman down the stairwell as she ran for her life - he killed her. The jury was deadlocked on jihad or mental illness.
This mistrial is an OUTRAGE. Based on this premise, every Muslim that engages in jihad is insane? This lone jihadi was following the dictates of the Koran. Bostom's book, The Legacy of Islamic Antisemitism ought to be mandatory reading and listening as well. It's in the koran.
This Muslim was just following orders. The West is lost in a sea of mendacity. Killing Jews is as crime against humanity. Shame on this terrible jury. When it happens to non-believers, infidels, and kufirs close to them, they will weep bitter tears.
Jihad in a post 9/11 America should be a capital crime, punished to the full extent of the law.
Mistrial in case of Seattle Jewish center shooter AP hat tip Davida
SEATTLE - A mistrial has been declared for the man accused of the 2006 shootings at a Seattle Jewish center that left a woman dead and five others wounded.
Jurors had indicated in questions posed to the judge that they were hopelessly deadlocked over whether Naveed Haq was not guilty by reason of insanity as he claims. The judge declared a mistrial Wednesday on the eighth day of deliberations.
Prosecutors say they will retry Haq on murder and attempted murder charges. Jurors acquitted him of one of the 15 counts against him.
Haq held a teenage girl at gunpoint to force his way into the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle on July 28, 2006. Once in the office he began railing against U.S. policies and opened fire. Pamela Waechter was killed as she fled down a stairwell.

UPDATE: Reader Naar painfully writes," I am not Jewish but have a passion for the Jewish people. I remember feeling
fear when the shooting happened and even told my office mates "I bet it is a
Muslim after Friday prayers killing Jews." They shrugged and showed no sense of
fear. I was right and their nonchalant reaction was and is more
frightening. I was even more angry and sick to my stomach when I heard that he
wasn't getting the death penalty and his
parents' letter of thanks to the prosecution for "sparing" him. People even turned
it to an anti-gun
issue. People all over
Seattle felt sorry for the guy, he had "mental"
problems he was angry about Israel-so it was understandable
why he went to kill some Jews.
You know Haq's family works at the Hanford Nuclear Plant in Richland, WA? And his dad founded an Islamic Center in the Tri-cities area?
And the women Haq chased down the stairs and killed, he shot her in the head after she was already down."
