More chutzpah in reporting and NON-reporting on the Muslim Trolley Square Terrorist, Sulejman Talovic. Yesterday, cops absurdly not seizing his computer, but today:
Reader Kendalee passes on news that The Deseret Morning News–which ripped myself and other bloggers for pointing out Talovic’s religion, ISLAM–is sympathetically noting that the Talovic family needs donations to BURY THEIR TERRORIST SON in Bosnia! Can you imagine The New York Times writing a sympathetic piece about how Mohammed Atta’s family needs money to fly him for burial in Egypt?
Hello . . .? This man murdered five Americans and seriously injured 5 more, including a pregnant woman. And they are hinting to us to help donate money for his burial?! WHAT ABOUT THE BURIAL OF HIS FIVE VICTIMS whose crime was buying Valentine’s Day cards?
Then, there is the issue of an apparent cousin of Talovic, Amir Omerovic, who was convicted of sending a jihadist note to then-Governor John Rowland of Connecticut. In most press accounts, Ajka Omerovic is noted as Trolley Square terrorist murderer Talovic’s aunt. And the Omerovic clan is well-known in the fighting of Muslims against Bosnian Serbs in Srebrenica. One of them who also emigrated here was Amir Omerovic, apparently a cousin of Talovic.
Terrorism expert and investigator Bill Warner points out that, in March 2002, Amir Omerovic was convicted of mailing the jihadist death threat to Rowland. From the March 5, 2002 New York Times account:
A man pleaded guilty yesterday to mailing letters falsely threatening to infect their recipients with anthrax. The defendant, Amir Omerovic, a 28-year-old naturalized citizen from Bosnia now living in Derby, admitted in Federal District Court that in late October he sent such letters to the offices of Gov. John G. Rowland, the United States Coast Guard and Marines in Connecticut, and the Judicial Review Council in Hartford.
John A. Danaher III, the United States attorney, said that Mr. Omerovic, who faces up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine, is to be sentenced on May 17.
Prosecutors said the letters contained a note that read: 09.11.01. Anthrax is deadly. You breathe and die. This is only the beginning. Americans will die. Death to America and Israel.
I’d say not-so-great Muslim terrorist cousins’ minds think alike.
