Is Al-Qaeda claiming responsibility for the Virginia Tech Massacre or confing that it was an act of Islamic terrorism?
If you listen to or read the transcript from the latest rant video by Azzam Al-Amriki a/k/a Adam Gadahn (released this week by Qaeda’s As-Sahab), it sure looks like it.
As reader David points out, on the video, Gadahn says:
Your failure to heed our demands . . . means you and your people will . . . experience things that will make you forget the horrors of things such as Sept 11, Afghanistan, Iraq, and Virginia Tech.
These [the first three] are Muslim acts of violence. Is Al-Qaeda confirming that Virginia Tech was a terrorist act? It certainly appears that they are. What Adam Gadahn knows, our FBI is not speaking about either. The silence is deafening.
So, if the Virginia Tech Massacre–which had all the hallmarks of a jihadist massacre–was just the work of a madman, why does Azzam Al-Amriki mention it in this context? He didn’t mention Columbine or any other massacres.
Just a coincidence? Don’t bet on it. There are no coincidences.
And where are all those parties who attacked me for daring to suggest there might be a connection between Islam and the Virginia Tech massacre? Would love to see them squirm as they try in vain to explain away Azzam/Adam’s comments.
Oh, and why is Azzam/Adam’s extremist imam–the man who converted him–still walking free and unfettered, here in America? I’ve asked before and I’m asking again.
Why is Muzammil Siddiqi walking free on U.S. soil?
