Serial Killer Who Targeted US Blacks is Palestinian Arab Alien (Expired Pasport), Police Hid “Mid-Eastern” Description

By Debbie Schlussel

For several weeks, police have been quietly searching for a serial killer who stabbed poor Black victims in Flint, Michigan, then fled to Leesburg, Virginia, where his sister lives.  Many family members of the victims were angry that the police did not disclose the White identity of the murderer, saying it was racist.  But, now, it’s very clear why they hid his identity and true visual descriptionElias Abuelazam is a Palestinian Arab alien who was here on an expired passport.  (****  UPDATE, 08/13/10:  Since I first wrote this, news reports say Abuelazam has a green card and was here legally.  ****)

“He was a dark Middle Eastern guy and the description was of a White guy,” said [DS: his neighbor] Carrie Strang, who woke up this morning to find police cars and news vans outside.

Visit for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Wow, we’ve really regressed a long way when we endanger people’s lives to give a politically-correct, whitewashed description of a Palestinian serial killer.

Abuelazam, who killed five people and attacked 20 others in three states, engaged in apparent marriage fraud, marrying a woman from Texas beating her, then divorcing her.  (Some reports say they also had a child together.)

Police stopped Abuelazam, who was trying to board a flight to escape to Israel.  Unfortunately, while Abuelazam’s name isn’t being publicized, that he is “from Israel” is.  It’s funny:  they hate Israel, but whenever Palestinians are in trouble, suddenly they are “from Israel.”  He may have been born in Israel and even have an Israeli passport, but he and his ilk identify as and with Palestinians.  The guy is NOT Israeli, contrary to MSNBC’s disgusting headline:

Israeli held in investigation of serial stabbings

He’s Palestinian Arab who was born in Israel.  Get that straight.

Abuelazam specifically targeted Blacks and stabbed them to death.  Disgustingly, some of the Detroit media, including “newscaster” Trudi Daniels of Detroit’s WRIF-FM, are making excuses for the guy, with Daniels saying that he probably did this because “maybe a Black guy raped his wife” or someone Black robbed him or committed some other crime against him, she surmised.  Daniels is an uber-liberal . . . and, now, clearly a racist.

It is well known that Palestinians, Arabs, and the Arab and Muslim worlds are racist.  As I’ve noted before, they call Blacks, “abed” or “abeed”–singular and plural for slave, in Arabic.

Abuelazam was employed at a Flint-area convenience store, the Kingwater Market, owned by fellow Arab, Abdullah Farah.  How interesting that it didn’t bother them that he was here illegally.  Yes, they are accessories to his illegal alien presence in America, but nothing will happen to them.  Because we just don’t have the guts, do we?

We don’t have the guts to protect our borders or to do a damned thing to those who help keep it porous and indefensible.

Nor do we do a damned thing about police who won’t correctly identify a Middle-Eastern Arab serial killer on the loose because, post-9/11, we must bow down to the Arab street at all cost.

Nauseating to the Nth.

Speaking of “not having the guts” to do anything about illegal migrants…Canada is now facing the possibility of taking in Sri Lankans on board a ship…(and, apparently, another two ships filled with more illegal migrants are also on the way). Since it takes 8 years to deport them, and once they step foot on Canadian soil, bingo, they have the same status as “Canadians”…we’re in deep trouble here. We need to change a host of laws regarding “refugees”, regarding deportation, regarding absentee “citizens” (those who, for example, live in Lebanon, and return to Canada only to use our health facilities), and our ludicrously lax immigration allowances (in 20 years nearly one-half of all Canadians will be foreign born!) I want closed borders.

Btw, I was also reading that in Australia there’s been a moratorium placed on Afghans entering the country as immigrants (back in April, they said, no more applications from Afghanistan will be accepted for the next 6 months — that’s a start, imo.)

J.S. on August 12, 2010 at 1:03 pm

There is something far more sinister to this than meets the eye. Police need to really look into his associates here, especially his Jordanian manager. I suspect that this story will be buried quickly now that it is known that the perp is not white, but Palestinian Muslim. Could be Hezbollah or Hamas, either would not surprise me.

duane on August 12, 2010 at 1:06 pm

According to this he is an Arab Israeli citizen.

mk750 on August 12, 2010 at 1:16 pm

    Which, if true, is even more worrisome than him being a “Bali.”

    mk750 on August 12, 2010 at 1:18 pm

babbazee on August 12, 2010 at 1:18 pm

The only reason why this was so heavily publicized was because the media types who picked up on this story thought he was JEWISH. Now this is a major news item … and they have egg on their faces.

Gerald on August 12, 2010 at 1:23 pm

idiot “media” if they truly thought it was a Jewish name
Stormfront immediately salivating thinking it was a Jew as well


Abu El Azam


Abu = father

El = a particle whose function is to render the noun on which it is prefixed definite

Azam = great

babbazee on August 12, 2010 at 1:31 pm

I agree, Gerald. Wonder if this also accounts for the long delay in releasing the perp’s name? (The same thing goes on here in Canada — they have to first make sure of the perp’s identity prior to laying charges…so, if it’s a Muslim, especially an immigrant, he’ll or she will be granted “special” exemptions, reduced charges, etc., and generally it’s not afforded to ordinary Canadians.)

J.S. on August 12, 2010 at 1:34 pm

As a resident of Flint, we would like to know why no one released information there was a killing spree going on until this past week. They are quick to report about killings in the “hood” but people minding their own business in what is actually not traditionally known as bad areas in Flint? (And for those of you who will come out to say that all of Flint is the “hood”, I challenge you to come to Flint and take a look around. It isn’t ALL bad.) How are we supposed to protect ourselves and our families when they wait 3 months to disseminate the information? The first victim was stabbed to death in May. And we learn about this past weekend? Was it because most of the victims were black? I find that hard to believe since most of the police force in Flint is black. So was it because they suspected all along this guy was of Middle East origin? I for one want answers.

Musiccgirl on August 12, 2010 at 1:35 pm

Debbie thank you for setting the record straight again.

D Tom on August 12, 2010 at 1:38 pm

ohh he is christian!!

johhny on August 12, 2010 at 1:40 pm

    Of course, he’s Christian. Slashing and murder is the First Tenant of Christianity…

    Oh, wait, that’s islam, isn’t it? How does he have the time or strength during his most holy holiday? Kudos to him. Remember, muzzies, KILL KILL KILL and MURDER MURDER MURDER.

    As goes on August 12, 2010 at 2:24 pm

      Well, nominally, Ag. Elias is NOT a Muslim name. We knew a lovely born again man by that name years ago. Obviously, this guy is not a real christian probably one of the Eastern Churches. Possibly even Catholic.

      mk750 on August 12, 2010 at 2:59 pm

CTV (in Canada) is *still* not releasing the name (only info given is about how he tried to get to Tel Aviv; emphasis on Israeli, etc.) Wonder when, if ever, they’ll name him?

J.S. on August 12, 2010 at 1:47 pm

It seems now that the meaning of the (in)famous quote from “Dreams of My Father” is now clear. Not only will Obama stand with Muslims if things get ugly, but his FBI is willing to endanger the public to hide the true ugliness related to Muslims, illegal aliens, socialist radicals……………….

peter on August 12, 2010 at 1:51 pm

I’m also very curious as to whether the MSM will denounce the perp as a Muslim RACIST who hated Black people…My guess is “No, Never! Muslims can’t be racists!”

J.S. on August 12, 2010 at 1:59 pm

of course I knew I would find the TRUTH HERE!!! Thanks Debbie

so I was reading these articles in MSM about an “Israeli” murderer and it was not adding up that a JEW would be on crime spree killing blacks-and the fact it was in an ares of USA known for TERRORist ties and activities and many ARABS-
in my head I thought – got to be an Arab- saw his name – most jews names don’t end in AZAM- not one MSM had guts to say his religion, a couple HID his town of birth by publishing it was RAMLE_ most USA don’t know that is RAMALLAH west BANK PALESTINIAN- they did not have guts to say about his ILLEGAL status-or his SKIN COLOR -you know the borwon that Arabs use to persuade Blacks they are on the same side(a lie)- – instead MSM told of an ISraeli passport- well DUH – USA does let in Israeli Arab & Pal b/c they are the only PAL who can get a passport- Lebs don’t give them one, nor Egypt nor Syria- USA so dhimmified – pathetic – Israel so hated it will be reported as a hate crime based on race by an ISRAELI- what a crock, a mountain of BULLSHIT. AHH USA land of hypocrites and haters—

    Hmm, hardly know where to begin with your misinformation…
    1) Ramle is a town in central Israel – it is not at all the same as Ramallah in the West Bank, so the press didn’t ‘hide’ where this guy came from.
    2) he is not illegal – he came to the US legally when he was a kid, with his family.
    3) the MSM may have been confused by his name – Elias looks like a Hebrew name, which it is, but it is also used by Mideast Christians, like Boutros (Peter), George, etc; Abu Elezam when run together as Abuelezam is not obviously Arabic to MSM reporters who are not experts on the Mideast. Also, Elezam is a name used by, say, Moroccan Jews, though without the Abu part.

    Why not just wait until this is all sorted out instead of flying off the handle right away?

    As for skin color – when you see a Mizrahi Israeli or a Palestinian they often have the same skin color, you can’t tell them apart except by uniform, language etc. I would consider both of them as white as Sicilians, for example.
    There are also black Israelis (Ethiopians) and Palestinians (few, but apparently descendants of soldiers brought by the Ottomans, perhaps); there are blond, blue-eyed Israelis and Palestinians – I have seen them. So things are not nearly as simple as you think.
    As for Arabs/Muslims and black people – are you aware that 1/3 of the Muslims in the US are African-American? Real Muslims, not ‘Nation of Islam’.

    Ruth on August 13, 2010 at 12:21 am


Christian eh? I was thinking that with the name “Elias” he probably wasn’t Muslim.

Gerald on August 12, 2010 at 2:11 pm

He’s a Christian, Debbie, the exact people you were speaking up for a few weeks ago when it came to a Muslim murdering a Christian Arab.

You really have no idea which side you’re on, huh?

A: Huh? When did I say he was Muslim? When did I say he wasn’t a Christian? RIF–Reading Is Fundamental. Try it some time. I’ve known all along he was Christian, as Elias is a Christian Arab name and Flint is home to many Christian Arab Palestinians and their crime and drug rings, which include many members of the Farah family which hired this illegal alien serial killer. But so what? The Palestinian Christians identify as Palestinians and are very anti-Israel. There have been several Christian Palestinian terrorists like George Habash, Wadi Haddad, etc. And, as I’ve repeatedly noted on this site, Palestinian Christian leaders, like the Greek Orthodox Patriarchate Hanna, have repeatedly called for Palestinians to become terrorists against Israel and work with HAMAS. Wake up, brother. DS

CNN states the perp was “in the country legally with an expired passport”. Is this like driving legally down the wrong
side of the interstate?

Tim on August 12, 2010 at 2:19 pm

    No, Tim, I don’t think it’s a moving violation.

    It is more like parking in a red zone.

    As goes on August 12, 2010 at 6:22 pm

Does anybody think that BHO would interject his opinions into this? No, I highly doubt he would. He is a muslim first and secondly a half black man. (Why doesn’t our Racist-In-Chief ever say he is half white instead of half black?)

And, if BHO loves his black roots so much, why hasn’t he done more for Africa? President Bush did more for the African people than BHO has. Why don’t we hear about that? (I am NOT a Bush supporter, but there were some things he did that I thought were good)

– somewhere in kenya a village is missing its idiot

Jarhead on August 12, 2010 at 2:20 pm


    The reason why Obama does not say that he is half-white is because racists have never cared about the white half, only the black half, when they discriminate. For instance, police profile half-black males all the time. A better example: half-black people were subject to Jim Crow, as Strom Thurmond’s own daughter can tell you. Strom Thurmond supported a system where his own daughter was not allowed to attend the University of South Carolina and instead had to attend South Carolina State.

    So, the conservatives who make such a big deal of Obama’s alleged rejection of his white ancestry are being disingenuous, knowing full well that America has always treated people like Obama as black. It is even more disingenuous when you consider that a significant percentage of blacks in this country are either part white or part Native American, yet they have always been considered black and treated as such.

    Obama didn’t create the one drop rule, white America did. And if Obama wasn’t a successful politician, you wouldn’t care less what he chose to call himself. Instead, all you’d want is for the police to keep him out of your neighborhood and away from your daughter.

    Gerald on August 12, 2010 at 2:27 pm

      Gerald – you’ve got that right. I want the police to keep BHO out of my neighborhood and away from my daughter. He is a scumbag to the Nth degree. And if he wanted to come into my house, I would let him know just one time that he is not welcome. The second time would not be so polite. I would do the same to ANY politician.

      As to the half white/black PC crap, I don’t go around and say that I am half this or part that. All of us should be identified as Americans, not by some skin tone.

      Gerald – for your info, my best friends in the Marines were black, my best friend right now is black and I have dated a black woman, so go f#ck yourself. Just go ahead and continue to call me a racist, I can think of many choice words to call you if you really want to go there.

      Jarhead on August 12, 2010 at 2:54 pm

      Gerald, be so kind as to tell us what political party set up and supported the Jim Crow laws?

      You are such a sick, Liberal apologist. If you had ANY integrity, you would realize that your love of Liberalism is sick and hypocritical (it always generates the exact opposite of your stated intent). The only thing worse than a knee-jerk liberal is a knee-jerk Liberal who KNOWS his ideology is a heap of BS yet still holds on to it because you’ve built your whole identity around it and without that integrel part of your personality, you would be exposed as naked and dopey. Like a mouth collapsing without dentures.

      Here’s to former Liberals who got out because they KNEW they were being zoomed! I love to point and laugh at the Liberals who don’t have the guts to admit that Liberalism generates the exact opposite of it’s stated intent. WE ARE ON TO YOU and your lack of cojones disgusts us all!

      Skunky on August 12, 2010 at 3:24 pm

        Skunky – you hit that nail right on its head. To add something else to what you wrote, liberals are such morons that they actually have White Guilt, which is partly what drives these idiots. I have never had white guilt, and I never will. And as I have stated again and again, I am an American, no hyphens or any of that other PC crap.

        Gerald doesn’t seem to understand that BHO is the one who always injects race into almost everything. Just look at the social programs he is trying to implement. When you look very closely at the social programs he is forcing on the American people, they discriminate against the white man. Instead of there being Jim Crow laws, now there are Average White Joe Laws. White males have become the most discriminated against group of people in the US. And if Gerald can’t see this, he is an even bigger dipsh#t than I think he is, and that is saying a lot.

        Jarhead on August 12, 2010 at 3:40 pm

      From what I’ve seen, blacks are more racist to each other than whites have a chance to be. They have their hate speech about uncle toms and sell outs or the brainny blacks getting harassed for being too white. Killing each other at an outrageous rate compared to how many whites commit murder on them.

      Look at the original story the media put out there. It was then a huge story due to the white thing. Nobody in the black community is doing much now. They still want him to be white. Just watch them make nothing of the illegal residency or the scum that employed him.

      Joe on August 12, 2010 at 4:46 pm

to a: where in Debbie’s article did she say that this piece of garbage was a muslim?

chuck601 on August 12, 2010 at 2:28 pm

    Good one. I noticed that Schlussel failed to mention the Islam angle also. However, I should point out that Palestinian Christians – and Middle Eastern Christians in general – are not exactly friends of the Jews. The PLO, which was a secular nationalist organization (not an Islamist one like Hizbullah and Islamic Jihad), tried mightily to recruit Middle Eastern Christians for their organization, and had a small degree of success. But then the Muslims in the Middle East turned on the Christians and … well you know the rest.

    Gerald on August 12, 2010 at 2:33 pm

    Actions speak louder than words. He is behaving like a muzzie. He is a terrorist.

    As goes on August 12, 2010 at 6:23 pm

Yep, according to his ex-mother-in-law, the fellow is Catholic. (Whether Roman Catholic or Orthodox Catholic … I wonder which?) However, this guy should STILL be classified as a terrorist no matter what the people say.

Gerald on August 12, 2010 at 2:29 pm

    What exactly is an “Orthodox Catholic”? There is no such a thing. The two are independent of each other.

    I think you might be referring to an Eastern Rite Catholic, of which there are many carieties, all sharing one thing in common: they are all in communion with Rome. If I were a betting man, I’d say he is most likely either a Maronite (the rite most prevalent in Lebanon) or a Syriac Rite Catholic.

    ALL Cathlics are Roman Catholic, as we remain in communion with Rome and recognize the Pope as our spiritual leader. I think when you say “Roman Catholic”, you’re trying to say Latin Rite.

    Islam Delenda Est on August 12, 2010 at 5:15 pm

Wow. I thought he was some sort of white supremacist neo-Nazi based on media descriptions….

Kayser Sozay on August 12, 2010 at 2:38 pm

I wonder how many reprisal crimes were spawned from this manufactured racially motivated crime spree.

Rick on August 12, 2010 at 2:44 pm

    There has been no evidence of reprisal crimes.

    Gerald on August 12, 2010 at 2:50 pm

If this perp had in fact been white the MSM would have quickly attempted to tie him to a white supremacist group or militia, but they will not attempt to make the same Muslim connection to this individual. Reminds me of watching Shep on FOX news when he hated to have to name the shooter at Fort Hood.

duane on August 12, 2010 at 2:56 pm

    You forgot the Tea Party…they’d first try to tie him to the Tea Parties.

    lippydog on August 12, 2010 at 4:11 pm

“There has been no evidence of reprisal crimes.”

Yesterday, there was evidence a white serial killer was stabbing black people (killed 5).

If a tree falls in the forest, does it make a sound?
Only if the MSM decides to report it.

Rick on August 12, 2010 at 3:03 pm

IS this killer an Israeli citizen? And, if so, wouldn’t that make him an ISRAELI? Are Israeli citizens considered Israelis, regardless of their religion or ethnicity?
Could it be that Israel has an immigrant problem that is as bad or worse than the US?

RT on August 12, 2010 at 3:04 pm

    He is an Israeli citizen. But he is not Israeli by nationality because there isn’t one. There is a Jewish nationality and Israeli citizenship and they are two different things. Get that straight.

    NormanF on August 12, 2010 at 4:31 pm

    Yes, RT, if you are born in Israel of Israeli citizens, you are an Israeli even if you are not Jewish. The Arabs that were here in 1948 and remained within the agreed upon borders were given citizenship so their descendants are citizens just as I am even tho I immigrated as a Jew. We don’t have a terrible immigration problem but we do have one. A lot of Russians were let in with nothing more than their say so that some great grandparent was Jewish. Turns out they weren’t and these people don’t exactly love us. They played us big time. We have some refugees from Sudan and other African nations who have produced “anchor babies” but our Interior minister is trying to deport them, children and all.
    The Palestinians are the offspring of those who refused to leave in 1948 and then later were denied entry to Jordan after the 1967 war. They do NOT have Israeli citizenship. If this Elias character has an Israeli passport, he is not a Palestinian. I’m not going to argue that there is a difference although there used to be to some degree. Now, the Israeli Arabs have been Islamized in their sympathies if not their practice and are becoming increasingly hostile. Not all but many. We’re even seeing it among the Druze and Bedouin who traditionally supported Israel.

    mk750 on August 12, 2010 at 5:06 pm

When I woke up this morning to this major news story, I knew in my gut that this guy was probably a Palestinian. I also knew that Debby would uncover the story and she proved my hunch was correct. Thanks Debby for revealing the truth in this politically correct insane world we live in. By the way, I was wondering if you have any info on the mass murderer Omar Sharif Thornton who shot up a Jewish owned beer factory last week and if he had any connections to the Islamic world.

Rebecca on August 12, 2010 at 3:04 pm

    Nicely said, Rebecca. I agree with you and felt the same way.

    Skunky on August 12, 2010 at 3:09 pm

    Rebecca, That was my concern and I didn’t know his middle name was Sharif. I guess he was named after the actor, Omar Sharif but his girl friend’s last name is Hanna which is an Arab name. My money is on him being sympathetic at the very least. The stories of how he was mistreated at work seem over the top, particularly since the Hollander family is known for it’s philanthropy.

    mk750 on August 12, 2010 at 5:12 pm

See my reply in the Comcast post at 10:28 AM.

mk750 on August 12, 2010 at 3:05 pm

It’s disgusting how the lame stream media first reported this as a ‘white man’ and that he was trying to escape to Israel;making him sound like he was a Jewish citizen. I heard the first report via ABC news and they made it sound that way too…disgusting how the lib media covers up what muslims do and even at the expense of others lives. He may have been caught sooner if they had described him as Middle Eastern….geeze!!

freedom4usa on August 12, 2010 at 3:07 pm

Since the perp appears not to be a KKKer or a White Supremacist, but an Arab (Christian, Muslim, Druze, who knows); there’s still the question as to how the MSM will deal with the racism angle — and, I’m betting it will played down, since it doesn’t fit the MSM’s mantra that only “whites” can be “oppressors.”

J.S. on August 12, 2010 at 3:27 pm

Like Obama, Elias could be nominally a Christian, but his sympathies/loyalty could lie with another religion entirely — Islam.
If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck etc. etc.
Nothing would surprise me anymore.

Paula on August 12, 2010 at 3:29 pm

Look at how the Biased Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) described him:

The suspect is an Israeli citizen who is in the US legally, a law enforcement official told the Associated Press.

I_AM_ME on August 12, 2010 at 3:34 pm

In Israel, Israeli citizens of Palestinian descent, Christian or Muslim or Druze, are called “Israeli Arabs” – apparently to imply that they aren’t indigenous but came from Saudi Arabia or some other Arab country. They make up some 20% of Israelis.

This guy IS an Israeli, just not a Jewish one. I knew immediately from his Arabic last name and typical Mideast Christian first name that he was Christian.

He isn’t a ‘terrorist’, unless you mean to imply that all serial killers are terrorists. He has more than one screw loose, apparently. Why do you take one nutso criminal and extrapolate from his actions into accusing whole groups of racism, etc.?

to mk750 – >>Obviously, this guy is not a real christian probably one of the Eastern Churches. Possibly even Catholic.

Not a ‘real Christian’? Eastern and Roman Catholics were Christian many centuries before your dispensationalist / Schofield Bible sect was even created. Where do you guys get off claiming that you are the ‘real Christians’?

Ruth on August 12, 2010 at 3:52 pm

    Ruth, I don’t claim to be any sort of christian. I’m a Jewish Israeli. I find your presumption appalling since I post here frequently and everyone knows I am a Jewish Israeli
    I happen to think that “real Christians” however are the ones who understand and try to live the life their messiah did rather than following a bunch of rules and doctrines he would not recognize if he were still around.

    Also I was speaking to Ag who has very strong feelings on the subject. You saw that she refused to accept he isn’t a Moslem. I didn’t feel like getting into a semantic wrangle with her and having her call me names as she has in the past.
    It was a clumsy attempt at explaining that a lot of people don’t make the fine distinction she does.

    mk750 on August 12, 2010 at 5:21 pm

      You continue to bore me, mk750.

      As goes on August 12, 2010 at 6:32 pm

      mk750 – I am new here and had no idea you were a Jewish Israeli. I agree with you that those who kill innocent people are not ‘real’ Jews, Muslims, Christians, etc – that is, they do not follow what their faith teaches. But what you said was this:


      You definitely implied that members of the ‘Eastern Churches’and Catholics are not ‘real Christians’. Certain fundie Christians believe that Orthodox and Catholics are not ‘real Christians’ – for example there are separate AOL chatrooms for ‘Christians’ and for ‘Catholics’ – and so I thought you were one of them. It’s an odd thing for a Jew to say! Very odd.

      Ruth on August 12, 2010 at 7:50 pm

        Yeah it is kinda odd but I have Evangelical friends and lived in the South for quite a while. And as I said, Ag has very strong ideas along those lines and I was replying to her comment. I also went to Catholic school and understand her beliefs, but it was awkwardly put to deflect a pointless rant.

        mk750 on August 13, 2010 at 10:39 am

The MSM crucified everyone over the firing of Shirley Sherrod. For one week CNN and MSNBC relentlessly keep playing the race card. Now the MSM got it wrong. They listened to Al Sharpton deflecting blame on the Connecticut mass murderer by saying a white man was on the loose killing black people. I figure this will quietly go away.

CaliforniaScreaming on August 12, 2010 at 3:57 pm

I do consider this serial murderer’s actions like that of a terrorist — in that he was targeting (apparently racially motivated?) Blacks in the United States. That he might not have been motivated by his “religion” (say, Islamic) is another matter. But in so far as knowing *his* actual motives (Ie, what exactly was going on in his demented “mind”) — I suppose we’ll have to wait and see what a court of law determines.

J.S. on August 12, 2010 at 4:08 pm

They are still just calling him an Israeli but his obvious non jewish name is all over the television. The media panders to the Arab street and hates jews and Israel? Where do you people get this stuff? The same media that is so highly disproportionately jewish is anti jewish? Yeah, right. Jews are not a bunch of self hating sell outs like many white gentiles.

    Sam, so you have to be blond and blue eyed to be “white?” Wow! thanks for telling me. Now if I ever have a cause to fill out the “race” question on anything, I know to no longer check Caucasian since I have big, dark brown eyes, and dark brown hair.
    When my third grade classmates use to ask me if Italians were white, I said yes. Silly me, if I’d only known I could have been getting my affirmative action goodies all those years before I left.

Oh and debbie, no people have aquired sacred cow status quite like your people. Anyone with even half a brain can see this.

Why does it surprise me that Islam validates psychopathic behavior?

And should a Palestinian Arab psychopath amaze us? Not really. They’re experts in mass murder at home.

    I should say that even if it turns he is Christian, he still grew up in an overwhelmingly Muslim environment at home.

    And Christian Arabs have absorbed and identified with Muslim beliefs about the Jews, Israel, blacks, etc. Like I said before on another thread here, when it comes to hatred of the Jews, you’d amazed how quickly supposed theological differences can quickly vanish.

    NormanF on August 12, 2010 at 4:35 pm

This guy is scum no matter how you look at it… But people please stop generalizing and putting everyone in one category… The reason they probably said he was white is because the witnesses described him as such… There are lots of Middle Eastern people that have blue eyes and blond hair… and believe it or not there are some Christians, Catholics, Greek Orthodox etc.. in the region also… If this person was not Arab we wouldn’t have this conversation… Every religion, country, ethnicity has their fair share of bad people… No culture is 100% exempt from the evil gene… Yes, everyone is entitled to their own opinion and that’s what makes this a great place to live… However, we need to look at every case independently and leave all prejudices aside no matter how hard that may be… The bottom line is this guy is trash and no one should defend his actions… And as corny and idealistic as it may sound we should all be more tolerant towards each other… There you go I said it… now lets all listen to “Image” by John Lennon…

    “Imagine” a world without islam.

    Jarhead on August 12, 2010 at 4:39 pm

He a Israeli citizen you insidious, Jewish supremacist hypocrite. Israel is not a theocratic state and it has a secular constitution. Which I might add it violates on a daily basis in it’s Gaza death camp.

Greg on August 12, 2010 at 4:52 pm

OneLove, you have to be 23 or under…or one of THOSE Liberals who spend more time trying to convince THEMSELVES of all the palaver you spew.

No thanks. I’ll take my deductive reasoning and fearless acknowledgement of truth and patterns over your unicorn-hair and pink-fuzzy bunny horse caca anyday. At this time I still have that choice in America.

Plus John Lennon was married to Yoko Ono and cheated on her witchy ass…and Yoko Ono is one of the most LEGION of the Liberal hypocrites. Just as Julian Lennon. Yoko’s infamous “yes” was a resonding HELL NO when it came to parting with John Lennon’s wampum.

I think there’s a more subtle lesson here about the press. Granted they messed up this killer’s ethnic origins because of prejudice and sloppiness. But this is their normal way of operating. Each day they do this a thousand times, because of laziness and prejudice, they mess up all kinds of news, misunderstand events, and oversimplify the complexity of events to the point of distortion or falsity.

One more example; can’t depend on the media, and any story they have needs to be independently verified.

Little Al on August 12, 2010 at 4:56 pm

“IS this killer an Israeli citizen? And, if so, wouldn’t that make him an ISRAELI? Are Israeli citizens considered Israelis, regardless of their religion or ethnicity?
Could it be that Israel has an immigrant problem that is as bad or worse than the US?”

Israeli press has reported that he’s from Nazareth or Ramle. It’s not clear how long he’s been away from Israel, but it’s reported his passport is expired. Many non-Jewish Israelis only consider themselves Israelis as a matter of fact, but nothing they take pride in.

And yes, Israel has a *major* immigrant problem, most falling into three categories: infiltrators (mostly Africans) crossing the southern border with Egypt; guest workers who overstay their work visas; and Arabs (mostly from the territories). The number of illegals is estimated up to 300,000. They’re taking over whole neighborhoods in southern Tel Aviv, and growing in numbers in places like Eilat and Arad. The question of what to do with the *children* of illegals is currently hotly debated.

The irony is that even as Israel celebrates each new contingent of Jewish immigrants “coming home”, even greater numbers are arriving illegally.

Raymond in DC on August 12, 2010 at 5:00 pm

    Raymond, overstated. It is a problem but nothing like you claim. Our Interior Minister, Rabbi Yishai has shown some backbone since coming to office being openly critical of earlier SHAS policy. He is determined to get as many of the non-working illegals out as possible. He’s even considering a small incentive payment to do so. The problem is we need non-Jewish workers to do some jobs on the Sabbath. So do put up with an increasingly hostile Arab *citizenry* or do we give permanent status to people who are genuine refugees and glad to be here? Unlike illegals in America who still cling to their native language and expect accommodation for it, our illegals have tried to learn Hebrew and our ways and their children all do.
    There is a passage in the Torah to be kind to the stranger who lives peaceably among us. Ok, *some* of these are criminals but there are Sabras who are also criminals. But I emphasize that it is not as bad as you say and it is not as bad as in the US. There may be a few neighborhoods in TA that are affected but there are whole cities and towns where nothing of the sort takes place. Stop reading Ha’aretz or the J Post liberal rags. Some of the “trouble” is that the Eastern European immigrants don’t want the “svartzes” among them.

CNN’s “situation room” is asking — “Is this a Homeland Security threat?” (ie, asking if the serial killings were terrorist related).

J.S. on August 12, 2010 at 5:03 pm

Even if this guy is an Arab, so what? Does anyone want to compare the percentage of Arabs in the US who murder people to the percentage of blacks who murder people? Yet certain people would have us believe that Arabs are to be feared — probably because they’re Jewish and are pushing an anti-Arab, anti-Muslim agenda. Remember, the goal of neoconservative Jews like Ms. Schlussel has always been to stoke the fires of anti-Muslim hatred in the West so that the US and its allies will fight wars for Israel’s benefit. And it should be obvious to even the stupidest person that those wars do nothing to stop terrorism here at home.

MikeT on August 12, 2010 at 5:04 pm

and CNN is still identifying this killer as an Israeli citizen; lots of Helen Thomases still out there.

Little Al on August 12, 2010 at 5:22 pm

Whether the perp is Jew or Arab is of no matter. Israel is to be denounced for shipping a deranged knife-killer to our shores. The fact that most of the victims are Black is no excuse. Israel must pay compensation to the victims and their families.

M: Huh? It’s Israel’s fault that a Palestinian came here, overstayed, etc.???? Hilarious. Wake the heck up. This is the fault of the Arab Palestinian Farah family who employed this illegal alien and didn’t turn him in for deportation, as well as the fault of this serial killer, himself. DS

    Mo Mike

    You’re either failing at humor, or out of your frakking mind.

    Which is it?

What difference does it make whether he claims to be “Catholic”, “Christian” or “Four-Legged” for that matter?

He is a terrorist. He is a failed terrorist because out of 25 attempted murders, he succeeded only five times. He failed 80% of the time, and succeeded only 20% of the time.

DS posted: It is well known that Palestinians, Arabs, and the Arab and Muslim worlds are racist. As I’ve noted before, they call Blacks, “abed” or “abeed”–singular and plural for slave, in Arabic.

I would add that Indians are racist. I recall an Indian family that murdered his son’s wife because she was of the African American persuasion. Yes, we must learn about these cultures, build bridges, kuba ya,… I just want to know WHY we need to bother with third world savages. Just.Keep.Them.OUT.

Pot kettle black, etc….
