“Halal Twinkie Defense” Fails: FINALLY, Naveed Haq, Seattle Muslim Murderer, Convicted

By Debbie Schlussel

Longtime readers know I’ve been following the case of Naveed Haq, the Muslim who murdered one woman and injured five others as he attacked the Seattle Jewish Community Center.  He went there with the intent to murder as many Jews as possible, and miraculously only got one.  But it was one too many.

Islamic Terrorist Naveed Haq Convicted / Guilty

This afternoon, Haq was finally found guilty by a jury and convicted.

I say, “finally,” because this was Islamic terrorist Haq’s second trial.  As I noted on this site last year, Haq’s first jury was one of these absurd O. J. Simpson-style juries, and it ended in a mistrial.  Some jurors bought Haq’s attorney’s phony-baloney mental illness/insanity defense. I call it the “Halal Twinkie Defense.” (Maybe I should trademark it.  Remember I coined it, the next time you see the likes of Malkin, Vannity, Geller, etc. pilfering it.) We see it in many cases where Muslims attacks Jews, Christians, and other Americans based on their Muslim beliefs, then claim insanity.

But not this time.  We will have more and more of these as we continue to allow more and more Muslims into the country and watch those already here breed more and more Naveed Haqs in our midst.  It won’t end with Nidal Malik Hasan and his Fort Hood Islamic terrorist attack.

More:

Prosecutors contended Haq came to the Belltown center intent of killing Jewish people. . . .

Haq faced a mandatory sentence of life without the possibility of parole if convicted of aggravated murder. But continued confinement was all but certain, as a finding of not guilty by reason of insanity meant Haq would be sent to a mental institution.

The facts of the case against Haq had been largely agreed from the beginning, with jurors left to decide whether Haq was insane at the time of the killings and if his actions showed a premeditated design to kill.

During trial, the King County Superior Court jury heard from Haq’s five surviving victims and was shown video of the initial moments of the attack.

According to police reports, Haq forced his was into the federation building by holding a gun to the back of a 14-year-old girl. Once inside, Haq proceeded to shoot six women working there, slaying Pam Waechter after chasing the injured woman into a stairwell and shooting her in the head.

Speaking with a 911 dispatcher before giving himself up to police the day of the shooting, Haq demanded that the United States military leave Iraq and complained that Muslims in the Middle East were “getting pushed around” by Israel and asked to be connected with CNN. Described by his attorneys as a non-practicing Muslim and baptized Christian, Haq was later heard on recorded calls from King County jail describing the woman he killed as an “Israeli collaborator” deserving death.

Haq’s attorneys had argued throughout the trial that, as a result of his mental condition, he believed his actions might end the Iraq War and Israel’s war in Lebanon, which was underway at the time of the shooting.

In addition to the aggravated murder charge, Haq was charged with five counts of attempted murder, unlawful imprisonment and malicious harassment, Washington’s hate crime law.

No one with a “mind that is whole” would believe such a thing, his attorney said in closing arguments.

No, actually, there are more than a billion people with “minds that are whole” that believe exactly that. They’re very sane. And very serious in pursuing what they believe is the just response to these false beliefs.

That’s the problem. And not just in this case, but many others in the past . . . and many more to come.

Watch for the same kind of “halal twinkie defense” in the trial of Fort Hood Massacre Islamic terrorist, Nidal Malik Hasan.

More from a previous post:

Victims testified that Haq, of Pakistani descent, made anti-Semitic statements before and during the slayings. Victim Dayna Klein, who was held hostage by Haq after he shot her, testified that he spoke about Jews needing to get out of Lebanon and Iraq.

On a 911 recording played for the jury, Haq was heard saying, “I want these Jews to get out.” The 911 operator told him that Klein, who was pregnant, needed an ambulance. “I don’t care,” the gunman said calmly. ” … just want to make a point … all the media’s being controlled by Jews. I’m sick and tired of it … Patch me in to CNN.”

Victim Christina Rexroad testified tearfully about her near-deadly encounter with Haq that afternoon. She said heard “popping” noises and walked down the hallway and saw Haq, who had forced his way into the locked building about two minutes earlier.

“He turned and looked at me. He had a gun in his hand. He shot me,” said Rexroad, her voice quivering.

Prosecution witnesses also testified that Haq conducted a computer search prior to the shootings to find his intended target.
According to the testimony of a Seattle police computer-forensic specialist, Haq sat down at his laptop the day before the shooting and began entering Internet search terms. He began by Googling the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, a Washington, D.C.-based lobbying group, and soon landed on the Seattle Jewish organization, eventually creating a map and directions for the 227-mile trip from his parents’ home in Pasco.

The next time you hear about a man shooting up Jewish, Christian, and other non-Muslim targets in America, just ask yourself: Was his “Twinkie Halal?”

You know what that means.

They’ll always claim they were insane when they did it. But that begs the real question: how come such supposedly insane people are rational enough to carefully choose their targets? That’s not insanity by any stretch of the word. That’s pre-planned, cold-blooded murder. Only a stupid person would believe murderers cannot suffer from a delusion or other disability. Sadly, there enough people in America willing to give the truly evil the benefit of the doubt. Let’s remember those who kill innocent people are evil and therefore know exactly what they’re doing and they’re not impaired at all in the capacity to make moral judgments.

So much for the “Halal Twinkie” defense. Its bunk.

I had someone ask me the other day what would Obama being doing differently if he were openly championing for Islam? Bringing terrorists and giving them rights? Tossing Israel under the buss? Ignoring islamic-tainted problems? Well, he is doing all that.

The only thing that disappointed me about the verdict is he didn’t get the death penalty. There is really only ONE appropriate punishment for murder: death and a life for a life. Any civilized society that doesn’t have the death penalty cheapens the value of a human life and mocks the victims’ families and yes, that includes Israel which sees nothing wrong with releasing Jew killers from its Club Med prisons to kill more Jews again!

Looks like a clone of Nidal Hasan.

But hey, we must not profile, that would be “unfair”.

Sure he was insane. Insane with a condition called Islam.

But again, we must not round ‘em up and ship ‘em out, because there are so many “good Muslims” who are “law abiding” (which law do they abide by?) and who pay their taxes (apart from zakat)

Lets keep the borders open! Lets keep ‘em coming! Allahu akbar!

‘Bout @#$&# time! But a life sentence is far too lite, because then he gets to spread his hate in prison, not to mention that his victims are dead, and he should be, too.

If you are referring to illegal immigration, you’re dead wrong. Most of these Islamic terrorists in American are here legally. Nidal Malik Hasan was born in America. If you’re referring to a liberal immigration policy for Muslims, then you can thank GW for that. One of the consequences of the Iraq war is the increase of Muslim immigrants from that area.

    Actually, those numbers started going up after President Clinton assumed office in 1-93. You began to see waves of Somalis, Bosnians, and others given refugee status or permanent residency. George Bush was not great, but Bill should in no way be let off the hook.

Sheik Yer’Mami is almost always right. I believe he’s/she’s correct here as well. It’s probably my poor English reading skills, but I can’t find reference to 51% or more, i.e., most, in the post.

A few can be deadlier than the majority, as referenced in Michelle Malkin’s Senate Testimony below:

“Remember: More than half of the 48 Islamic radicals convicted or tied to recent terrorist plots in the United States over the past decade either were themselves illegal aliens or relied on illegals to get fake IDs.”

Crazy Islam

P.S.: Thank you, thank you, thank you Ms. Schlussel for FINALLY putting a donate button on page here. I’m embarrassed at the amount I will give you after payday this month, but it certainly won’t hurt. Keep up the great work Ma’am, you’re an inspiration to us all.

In case you haven’t noticed, the national news media has NOT headlined this story. It is relevant to the Ft. Hood Massacre, but rather than headline THIS story, the LIB media has buried it.

DEAR MADAM SCHLUSSEL,

I WANT YOU TO ASK TO RAISE THIS QUESTION IN LEGAL TERMS

AS THE ISLAM TAUGHT IN THE MOSQUES ASK FOR KILLING INFIDELS, AS LONG AS THEESE INSPIRING PASSES OF KORAN ARE SPREAD AND TAUGHT WORLDWIDE, THE VICTIMS CAN OBTAIN LEGAL SATISFACTION BY THE MEANS OF LEGALLY PURSUING THE GOVERNMENTS AND THE ISLAMIC RELIGIOUS WHO GO ON SPREADING IT BY TEACHINGS(CONSIDER THAT IN SAUDI ARABIA THEY STILL GO ON TEACHING IT CLEARLY IN SCHOOLS, RAISING POOR YOUNG CHILDREN WITH THE IDEA OF KILLING CHRISTIANS, JEWS, HINDUS AND SO ON AS A COMMAND OF A SUPPOSED GOD) WHAT DO YOU THINK? THE FIRST TO START WITH COULD BE THE HEIRS OF 9/11 VICTIMS AGAINST SAUDI ARABIA OR OTHERS. IN THE USA COULD ACHIEVE THE BAN OF THESE TEACHINGS AS HATRE CRIMES… LET ME KNOW.

TAHNKS AND EXCUSE MY POOR ENGLISH
