Julia Gorin digs through the FBI report on the Salt Lake City Valentine's day massacre of 2007. Here is previous extensive coverage of the jihad in Salt Lake here. One detail it mentions, which we didn’t hear about before, is that Talovic was wearing a miniature Koran necklace while he shot the people at the mall. This is new information, which we’re finding out only because someone made a Freedom of Information Act request.
Why the FBI and the corrupt media insists on keeping the motive of these massacres a secret is a matter for a different post.
Here's an excerpt from Gorin's must read post:
What may be the final follow-up to the Valentine’s week massacre of 2007 got local coverage only — in the Salt Lake Tribune and by Salt Lake City radio station KSL. But at least a couple of the findings in this recently released FBI report on the incident go unmentioned by either news organization. Here are the significant findings in the report about Bosnian-Muslim murderer Sulejman Talovic, who killed five Americans and wounded four:
1) Talovic was described as a religious Muslim, attending mosque on Fridays and praying outside of mosque as well.
2) He wore a necklace with a miniature Koran at the time of the shooting.
3) His body was prepped at a mosque before being sent to Bosnia.
4) He told his “girlfriend” the night before that “tomorrow will be the happiest day of my life…” (a likely reference to martyrdom).
5) He held prejudicial beliefs against Serbs, homosexuals, and blacks.
6) Police were called to his school in 2004 after Talovic was caught looking at guns on the internet and making the statement that his “grandfather was in the jihad.”
That last one indicates that Bosnians secretly know they were engaged in a jihad even as they claim victimhood.
In this redacted FBI form, meanwhile, a co-worker said that Talovic would sometimes do Nazi salutes.
But for some reason, the emphasis in this Salt Lake Tribune article is not on the fact that Talovic had a history with Islam, hatred and violence (all mutually-fueling factors), but on the fact that he had a history with the mall as a hangout:
When 18-year-old Sulejman Talovic walked into Trolley Square and opened fire on shoppers, he was returning to a childhood hangout, according to newly-released FBI documents.
Talovic and his family used to live one block from the mall, and one person told agents Talovic played there with his sisters as a child.
But in 745 pages of reports, the FBI did not conclude why Talovic committed the Feb. 12, 2007, shooting or uncover any evidence of a wider plot behind them…
And of course, if there is no wider plot, then let’s block out the possibility of Sudden Jihad Syndrome as well.
…The FBI wrote that Talovic in 2001 or 2002 “made a statement that he was going to shoot white people, like Serbs.” The nine people Talovic shot at Trolley Square were white.
“…white people, like Serbs.” That would be a reference to us, Folks. How many times do I have to say it? In the Balkans, Serbs were target practice for Muslims — like Jews are in the Middle East. Practice for the rest of us. And so we helped the Muslims take aim.
…One of the people later told the FBI Talovic said he liked white supremacist music.
“I don’t like black people,” Talovic reportedly said. “That’s why I was in the KKK.”
Another witness said he once saw a wound on Talovic’s arm and asked about it.
“Talovic said he had previously gotten a swastika tattoo and had then removed it himself, by cutting it off,” according to notes of the witness interview. Talovic said “he did not know what the swastika meant and stood for when he had gotten the tattoo.” Talovic’s family told agents he did not have a tattoo.
One person…told the FBI Talovic said he hated “faggots” and was smoking opium and crystal meth.
Talovic wore a necklace containing a miniature Quran during the attacks, documents say, and FBI agents asked many people about Talovic’s Islamic faith. Family told agents Talovic once attended a mosque for prayers every Friday but stopped when he left school and began working. Co-workers did not observe Talovic praying during the day. The FBI found no evidence his religion was a factor.
Stacy Hanson, a Talovic victim who is confined to a wheelchair as a result, in an interview Friday said… “It doesn’t change anything, but it’s nice to know something about this guy because our lives have been changed — every single one of us.”
UPDATE: Speaking of which: “The Green Corridor in the Balkans”, which is part of the book “Kosovo: The Score 1999-2009”. Grab it - it’s an excellent analysis of the folly of U.S. policy in the Balkans.
