Who Killed Rusty Sneiderman? Check Out the Sketch

By Debbie Schlussel

It was not a Happy Thanksgiving for the family of 36-year-old Russell “Rusty” Sneiderman, a prominent Jewish businessman who was assassinated in Atlanta, last week, as he dropped his son off at pre-school.  And check out the sketch of the man witnesses saw do it.  As reader Joe pointed out, the guy looks like a Muslim, mostly because of his beard and some of the facial features.  And the man is described as a White man.  Few non-Muslim White men wear the kind of beard in the sketch.  And few non-Muslim White men have the kinds of facial topography illustrated in the photo.

Who is He? Suspect on Left Murdered Rusty Sneiderman, Right

Yes, that mustache-less, “Planet of the Ape Man” beard isn’t just an Amish or Mennonite thing.  It’s a Muslim thing, found mostly in Sunni Islam, not Shi’ism.  Many devout Sunni Muslims wear such a beard because it’s in fact a Muslim form of facial hair–considered “Sunnah” or of Mohammed because that’s reportedly how Mohammed wore his beard.  Also, the Hadith–which are considered the word of Mohammed and as authoritative in Islamic law as the Koran–require men to shave the mustache area closely and spare the beard from a trim.  Some Muslims say this is because it’s unsanitary to have the germs and/or particles trapped in a mustache go into a drink or food.  And others say it is worn to distinguish Islamic men from women (hey, they said it; not me).

Sneiderman, a Harvard Business School grad active in several charities, was active in the Atlanta Jewish community and was a member of Or Hadash conservative synagogue, there.  Was the guy who gunned him down a Muslim?  Was it religiously motivated?  Police and witnesses say the execution was clearly planned and deliberately targeted Sneiderman.  They believe the killer was a professional hit man.  No-one said devout Sunni Muslims aren’t hit men.  In fact, on 9/11 we got acquainted with 19 of ’em.  And several more since.  Hey, maybe this is the one Amish guy in America who snuffs people out for a living.  (He saw “Witness,” and didn’t like Harrison Ford sleeping with the Amish Kelly McGillis and turning her into a lesbian?)

I haven’t drawn any conclusions, and we may never know who murdered Rusty Sneiderman.  It may turn out to be your average White dude hitman who has a thing for the Planet of the Ape Men.  But again, look at the photo.  Sure looks like a follower of Mohammed to me.  Although it appears that Sneiderman and his wife were typical Jewish liberals (who generally pander to Muslims and serve as their chief apologists), that makes no difference in global jihad.  Liberal Islamo-pandering Jews, like Daniel Pearl, are eagerly cut up like chickens by Muslims, in a New York minute.

Ignoring the facial features and blaring cues in the sketch doesn’t make them incorrect.  And we ignore them at our peril.  As I noted earlier this year, authorities refused to put out a correct sketch of stabbing serial killer, Elias Abuelazam, a Palestinian Arab who targeted Black people for extinction.  The sketch looked like your average White guy in a baseball cap, not an Arab from the Middle East.  Had the sketch been accurate, Abuelazam might have been caught sooner and less people might have died at his hands.  That nose on the sketch just ain’t your average White guy’s nose.  Not even your average White hit man’s nose. And saying so isn’t “bigoted.” It’s intellectually honest and could help catch this murderer sooner.

I will be following this story, though if the killer does turn out to be Islamic, I bet we’ll never hear about it.

You know– it gets in the way of the “religion of peace” meme and all that.

That’s a very clear,detailed sketch.

Someone got a good long look at this guy who didn’t even bother to conceal his identity.

ebayer on November 26, 2010 at 6:25 pm

Horrifying, disturbing and sad story. Prayers for the family and the victim.

united states of sharia on November 26, 2010 at 6:47 pm

Well, considering the deeply ingrained pathetic tradition of kissing Muslim a** in this country, and ignoring all logic and rationality; the Atlanta police will likely be ordered to shake down all elderly white women above the age of 80, to answer for this cowardly murder. I’m sure the Atlanta PD reports will never include in writing that the suspect, as sketched, has Muslim-like characteristics, as described by DS – to do so would be a capital crime greater than the original murder.

Ace on November 26, 2010 at 7:52 pm

Thank you for carrying on Debbie…
I went back and found where you personally
said you liked one of my poems..

I’ve been busy … moved to Oklahoma
They gave Texas away to Mexico

Thank you for being brave, Debbie

That sketch does look like an arabic male instead of a white male who committed the murder of Mr. Sneiderman. As Debbie pointed out that the Sneiderman’s are liberals who probably panders to radical islamist, my condolences goes out to that family regardless of their politics. And if the Atlanta police finds this suspect, are the Georgia ADL going to condemn this murder of Mr. Sneiderman? Probably not, the ADL these days are becoming a useless organization, they (the Anti-Defamation League) are an equivalent of the political system in this country!

A beard with no mustache? You never know. Perhaps it was some wierdo with a C. Everett Koop fetish.

Irving on November 26, 2010 at 9:21 pm

Debbie, if this was a targeted hit the po-po should be able to solve it p.d.q. BTW I applaud your Lions for bringing in the local Yeshiva boys to play against Tom Brady and the Patriots in the second half yesterday. What the bochurs lack in effort and talent they surely make up in kavanah.

Some Muslim religious teachers tell their disciples that Muhammad had instructed Muslim men to shave their mustaches to distinguish themselves from Jewish men who grew their mustaches in Muhammad’s time.

Fenshaw on November 27, 2010 at 2:14 am

The image in the sketch is not that of an Amish or Menonite male. I live in the Mennonite and Amish area. Our family, including our children, often see the Amish horse drawn buggies roll by.

No Amish person I have evern seen in my entire life, and no Mennonite person – they have many similarities – I have ever seen in my entire life ever looked like the guy in the sketch.

Sikhs do not look like the guy in that sketch either. Those who wear the turan often have a full beard and full head of hair.

As you said, Debbie, this guy looks more like a Muslim than anyone else, more so than a long shoreman, more so than a mountian man, more so than a hippy.

Yep! If that sketch is accurate, the perp looks like a Muslim.

Since the victim is Jewish, it isn’t beyond the realm of possibility that the perp was a Jew hating Muslim.

Of course, if the victim is a Jewish liberal, then, being a liberal, and a Muslim supporter, if he were one, should afford him protection from Islamic violence, right?

No, it wouldn’t.

William on November 27, 2010 at 2:40 am

Best regards for the victim’s family.

William on November 27, 2010 at 2:42 am

I hope they capture the killer. Shame Rusty did not have a concealed carry permit (if they allow that in his state) and maybe he would still be alive.

Fred on November 27, 2010 at 3:52 am

I hope the police have their heads out of their asses and see this perp for what he is – a Muslim terrorist. Remember what Al Quaeda said recently? Death to America by a thousand cuts? This killing fits that threat perfectly. Just a so many other terrorist attacks have been called merely crimes by “unbalanced individuals” ( Major Hasan’s rampage, the Jewish daycare attack, the supposedly random killings in Michigan and Toledo), the police and media will probably downplay this. Expect more of this kind of thing as America keeps its head firmly buried in the sand.

Makkay on November 27, 2010 at 7:09 am

    Especially if groups such as the Southern Poverty Law Center (a multiple oxymoron, if one were to be asked) have anything to do with it. Never mind the usual suspects whom Debbie has chronicled in great detail for the past several years.

    ConcernedPatriot on November 27, 2010 at 8:15 am

And no one is looking at the wife for this?

Sue on November 27, 2010 at 9:35 am

They would not dare call this a hate crime, would they? You can bet that if it was a Muslim man who was murdered in such a cold, callous, and premeditated manner, it would be reported as a hate crime.

Betty on November 27, 2010 at 12:21 pm

    A Jew? What Jew? You haven’t been following the FBI statistics that Debbie reported on here a few days ago. More hate crimes are committed against Jews than against Muslims. But if you go by the media, one gets the impression its the other way around!
    To make a moral, don’t believe what you read in your newspapers or see on your TV.

    NormanF on November 27, 2010 at 7:50 pm

I noted the same thing, and without jumping to conclusions, also noted that the sketch appears remarkably detailed and posed. As if a suspect is in mind.

pat on November 27, 2010 at 5:21 pm

Its strange how you equate being white with not being Muslim.

M: Uh, Muslims equate being Muslim with not being White. I’ve covered that on this site. Get a clue. DS

Mike on November 27, 2010 at 5:45 pm

The Liberty incident was in 1967. The US government investigated and said it was an accident and the Israelis paid several million dollars in reparations. If anti-Semites like Nad think they know better and that Israelis were out to kill Americans, I’d tell them what Rachel Corrie learned the hard way: Do not f with Israeli Defense Force operations as it will probably not turn out well for you.

A1 on November 27, 2010 at 6:02 pm

More Peaceful Religion activity: a Somali teen was arrested in Oregon in a plot to bomb a Christmas celebration and in Arkansas an “Amish” was arrested by an alert Trooper for carrying explosives. Can’t say the obvious cuz ya know, they wish us goodwill, peace and brotherhood on earth. And who killed Rusty Sneiderman: odds are good it was an “Amish.” Cuz to hear the media say it, you know the Peaceful Brothers would never ever harm a living soul! That’s it for the past twenty four hours and counting.

CornCoLeo on November 27, 2010 at 8:24 pm

Exactly correct NormanF, more and more crimes in this country this day in age are against jews then any other religious group in the country. But the leftist media wants the sheeple to know that it’s muslims who are being victimized the most in this country today, which the opposite is true. Debbie to her own credit gave out the facts earlier this week on what the FBI reported (last I checked, the FBI is not a right wing organization or even a left wing organization either) regarding towards the most hate crimes in this country!

No Muslims. Know Peace.

Stephen on November 27, 2010 at 10:00 pm

As your first responder said, “…. didn’t even bother to conceal his identity.” Why should he, or they, if they are always passed off as being White. This isn’t the last we will hear from this creep.

alive in Cyprus on November 28, 2010 at 4:05 am

I have been following Rusty Sneiderman’s story closely – how sad!! My question is – why hasn’t a beardless photo been posted – the beard looks fake! Thank you.

Dena on November 28, 2010 at 1:46 pm

What a load of racist hogwash! Let’s see, it’s a planned hit and the guy doesn’t want to be identified afterward so in the two or so weeks it takes to pattern the guy, he grows facial hair and covers his head with a watch cap. He could be from any Semitic tribe or Croatian or native American. Get a grip.

MarcoSolo on November 28, 2010 at 2:23 pm

The tight-fitting cap is another giveaway; I don’t think it was cold enough in Atlanta last week for people to be wearing watch caps for warmth, but religiously observant Muslim men wear these knitted head coverings. He sure looks Middle Eastern or South Asian to me. What ethnic Muslim group is most largely represented in Atlanta at the current time? What’s strange, though, is that Rusty appeared to have been specifically targeted; a jihadi committing a random act of violence against Jews at an obviously Jewish institution would have been more likely to have screamed “Allahu akbar!” before spraying bullets everywhere to maximize the carnage. I hope the authorities catch this guy and quickly. My heart goes out to Rusty’s family.

Amy on November 28, 2010 at 6:10 pm

Speaking of TSA, again if Debbie ever has a child and breastfeeds, guess what the TSA now considers dangerous?

Yup – that’s right – breast milk! Its getting really ridiculous now.

NormanF on November 28, 2010 at 11:16 pm

This was a planned, professional hit carried out by someone who not only had a specific target victim, but knew the victim’s routine, and planned it in a way where he would have the most likely chance of succeeding (i.e. where the victim would be least suspecting/most vulnerable) and the best chance of getting away (daycares are not exactly the most secure environments … most don’t even have the low paid unarmed security guards).

While the victim was certainly successful, it is extremely unlikely that he was a target of a political assassination or any such thing. As the area that he lives and works has a very large and politically active Jewish community, it is difficult to imagine why he would have been singled out. If the attack was religiously motivated – again the killer would have had to have known the victim well enough to know his routine. (I won’t list any scenarios because I don’t want to provide the Islamists who frequent this site any ideas, but allow me to say that if you are out to kill someone because of their religion, then a daycare parking lot is not the place to go looking for targets.)

Sorry, but based on what is known about this case (which has gotten a good bit of local media coverage), if the murderer (hitman) is Muslim, it is only because whoever hired him chose a Muslim hitman for whatever reason.

Gerald on November 28, 2010 at 11:30 pm

Why isn’t liberal Islamo-pandering Jews treated like Egypt Copts? Isn’t this double standard?

trista on November 29, 2010 at 3:43 am

Hopefully the Georgia police will catch and hang the POS soon. When the police hang him, it should be posted on Al Jazerah for the ragheads to see.

Truth on November 29, 2010 at 12:39 pm

Hope the cops find this murderer and hang him. Show it on Al-Jezerah TV to the ragheads.

Truth on November 29, 2010 at 2:43 pm

And we ignore them at our peril.
perfectly said, DS

esther on November 29, 2010 at 4:27 pm

Someone round up the muslims of the neighborhood and point out the fecker…. of course he shaved… but you can use sticky beards too…

Adel on November 29, 2010 at 4:30 pm

“You know– it gets in the way of the “religion of peace” meme and all that.”

Yeah, Christianity is a pretty hypocritical religion but we have to deal with it.

dickey simpkins on November 30, 2010 at 11:09 pm

No, it wasn’t a hate crime. No, the shooter wasn’t a Muslim. He dressed that way to make it look like a terrorist act, thus throwing off police. It was either a case of mistaken identity on the shooter’s part (he shot the wrong guy) or payback for a financial deal gone wrong. A distant third reason would be it was a Mossad hit.

Peter Piper on December 4, 2010 at 2:01 am

Beverly Hills police say ballistics tests suggest that Hollywood publicist Ronni Chasen was killed during a random robbery attempt by an ex-convict who later committed suicide with the same gun. Doesn’t anyone see the similarity to the killing in Atlanta the same week. These are hits. Death by a thousand cuts conducted by jihadists. Jews are going to be slaughtered like this, in cold blood all over the country. Protect yourselves. God help us.

BS on December 8, 2010 at 10:20 pm

I have much experience with arabs/muslims/sunnis….This guy is a palestinian sunni. Look at his face. Look at his nose. Look at his eyes. He will stand out in a crowd. Keep looking for him. It’s not likely he will shave his face. And, it is likely that he was hired to carry out this attack by someone else who is much closer to the family than anyone thinks. I don’t want to be cruel, but I think the police should look a little bit deeper into the family and see what anyone had to gain or lose by his life or death. This is too good to be true. Everyone says he was no less than a saint. There’s a dark side somewhere. Police need to be looking for it. He was dealing in something or he knew something. He got too close to someone who had ties with Hamas (Palestinian Sunni’s).

gracie hart on December 28, 2010 at 8:00 pm

So how does everyone feel now that they arrested a Jewish man (Hemy Zvi Neuman) for Sneiderman’s murder? We need to stop shouting that it was a Muslim anytime something happens to a Jew. It makes us look like crazed racists when we turn out to be wrong time and time again. We are in the United States, not in Israel, most of the time something horrible like this happens it is someone close to the victim, not some worldwide Palestinian conspiracy. The open bigotry in many of the comments above just makes me sad.

Avi on January 4, 2011 at 10:24 pm

Well, it turns out the murderer is Jewish. Debbie, Debbie, such a vile, ignorant cunt. Will you update this post?

None on January 4, 2011 at 10:43 pm

OK, all of you people who were so bloody sure it was an Arab hit – mark up here now and apologize – you too, Deb. It was Hemy Zvi Neuman, not Muhammed Mubarak Allai!!!!! You knee-jerk racists – the vast majority of murders are committed by someone known to the victim and Hemy is a resident of Buckhead. The Creator sure has a brutal sense of humor at times, n’est pas? See, this is what happens when your prejudices are so powerful they override your common sense.

MarcoSolo on January 5, 2011 at 12:09 pm

Wow, you are ignorant. More facts came out today and it’s totally disgusting what you wrote. How do you sleep at night? Free speech is good, but this blog totally irresponsibly takes advantage of it.

Typical Liberal Jew who apologizes for Muslims on January 5, 2011 at 5:49 pm

Looks like it was a Jew on Jew crime. The shooter was the victims wife’s’ supervisor……Not everything is a terrorist…

Cherbo on January 5, 2011 at 6:18 pm

Gee, I guess your paranoid conspiracy theory was wrong.

Sue on January 5, 2011 at 7:02 pm

The killer appears to be Hemy Zvi Neuman, an Israeli born American who happens to be Sneiderman’s wife’s boss.

Not Muslim at all, but a Jew.

Ellen on January 5, 2011 at 7:51 pm

ummm, sorry Racists, the sketch was a Jewish guy. G-d made Muslims and Jews to look alike.

Tom on January 6, 2011 at 6:51 am

The shooter was Israeli. Not so much a muslim with a terrorist agenda. Nice work here, folks.

Whoops on January 6, 2011 at 12:25 pm

the shooter was apparently an israeli. he worked with the guy’s wife at general electric. hmmmm, kind of blows your theory out of the water.

tracey on January 6, 2011 at 2:48 pm

Ace, Sean R., William, Makkay, Stephen, Adel, and Debbie S. herself should be feeling pretty ashamed of their nasty bigotry right now. Are apologies forthcoming?

Dr Yattz on January 9, 2011 at 2:32 pm

Bonk! You’ll have to pick on another religion of peace:

It might have been a guy named Hemy Zvi Neuman, 48, of Buckhead.

Butler T. Reynolds on February 8, 2011 at 1:17 pm

Of course you never updated this post.
