Do We Have a Problem Here?

"North Carolina Tar Heel Terror "

Here is a longer version of the article that appears in FrontPage today by Joe Kaufman on the Chapel Hill jihad:

Saturday night, the University of North Carolina (UNC) was abuzz with joy, as its Tar Heels men’s basketball team defeated its arch-rival and number one-ranked Duke. But this huge win only temporarily masked the pain of an event that happened just a day earlier. On Friday, Iranian-born Mohammed Reza Taheri-azar, a 22 year-old UNC graduate, tore through a lunchtime crowd at one of the university’s popular gathering spots with a Jeep Grand Cherokee, hitting nine people, of whom six were hospitalized with injuries.

Taheri-azar was arrested and charged with nine counts each of attempted first-degree murder and assault with a deadly weapon. According to Derek Poarch, the chief of the university police department, the attacker told investigators that he wanted to
“avenge the deaths or murders of Muslims around the world.” A paperback copy of the Quran was found in Taheri-azar’s room, along with a book calling for the United States to “confront state sponsors of terrorism.” He was shown, on news video footage, handcuffed and being led into a car sporting a giant grin.

At the court hearing on Monday, that same smile was ingrained on his face. Like Zacarias Moussaoui, whose trial coincided with Taheri-azar’s hearing, Taheri-azar stated that he wanted to represent himself. And like Moussaoui, who proudly proclaimed,
“I’m Al-Qaeda,” Taheri-azar used the courtroom forum to voice his Islamist ideology. Clad in orange jumpsuit and leg shackles, he stated, “I am thankful you are going to hear this trial to learn more about the will of Allah, the creator.” And in response to a reporter’s question, he confirmed that, “Yes,” it was his intention to murder those he hit with the SUV he had just rented. In the 9-1-1 call he had made after the attack, he told the operator that he did this “to punish the government of the United States.”

Are our Universities a problem? Ask this professor from Columbia:

"All those in the Arab world who deny the Jewish holocaust are in my opinion Zionists."

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, call home!

It is almost impossible to crawl into the twisted minds of these fanatics. Logic, unfortunately, is of no help at all. Indeed, Mahmoud call home. Amusing, though ominous.

Arab holocaust denial? Would that be denial of the holocaust inflicted on Arab Iraqis by Saddam Hussein & co? Or did I miss something?
