Where’s the “mainstream media” coverage of the “Religion of Peace’s” latest attack? This time, it’s a terrorist attack on Home Depot in Chandler, Arizona. And you, I, or our loved ones could have been there. And get this: The perpetrator, Palestinian Muslim Ali R. Warrayat, drove his truck into the store because he was mad at the U.S. for the proposed fence along the Mexican border.
Hmmm . . . . Why would a Palestinian Muslim living in Arizona be angry about more barriers to illegal aliens at the Southern Border? Hint: It’s not because he’s a philo-Hispanist. Maybe it could have something to do with the fact that a lot of OTMs (Other Than Mexicans), some Muslims with terrorist ties, are invading are country illegally, through that border. Are some of them Warrayat’s buddies, relatives, associates, etc.?
We’d bet the FBI and other authorities say this has “nothing to do with terrorism,” as they do with all other such Islamic terrorist attacks, like the one on the El-Al counter at LAX on July 4, 2002. You be the judge. (Warrayat is a Palestinian Jordanian–and 75% plus Jordanians are Palestinians.)
Oh, and Warrayat tried to kill his cat and a dog, too. Don’t hold your breath for PUTA (People for the Unethical Treatment of Animals and Humans) to protest.
It happened on December 18th, so why haven’t we heard about this?
Read these excerpts from a scary article in today’s East Valley Tribune, documenting the Home Depot attack:
He placed both hands on the steering wheel, stared straight ahead and barrelled toward the front entrance of Home Depot.
Ali R. Warrayat hadn’t slept in days, planning this moment down to the last detail. Now, his face was void of any expression. A store employee jumped out of the car’s path. To drown out the man’s yells, Warrayat reached over to his car radio and blasted Arabic music before crashing through the front doors.
The scene was only the beginning of a violent rampage through the Chandler store on Dec. 18. For the 24-year-old Arizona State University student, the motives behind the attack were personal.
He told Chandler police he was angry at Home Depot, where he worked as a paint stocker, about not getting a proper raise. He was mad at the United States for proposing a 700-mile fence along the Mexican border.
He wanted to make America “more free.”
So the Jordanian-turned-U.S. citizen devised a plan to make a grand statement by crashing into the store at Alma School Road and Chandler Boulevard and setting it on fire.
At first, he wanted to wear a Palestinian flag, but later decided to place it in the trunk of his car, along with a copy of the Quran and a necklace.
He then grabbed his cat and his uncle’s pit bull and brought them along for the ride with the intent of killing them in the fire.
After crashing through the doors at 6 a.m. that Sunday, he expertly navigated the aisles and headed straight for the paint department, slamming his car into the flammable goods.
He jumped to the roof of the car, looked around for a second and then hopped to the ground.
He used a lighter to ignite the blaze, and loud explosions followed as store employees ran for safety.
Bustamante said Warrayat was deeply religious and had a Quran hanging from his rearview mirror.
He also described trying to put the dog in his trunk to show it the Quran. He said dogs are “filthy” and that was why the dog didn‚Äôt want to be in the trunk with the holy book.
Police served a search warrant on the Gilbert house where he lives with his parents, seizing a computer and other items.
Initial images on his computer depicted men lighting Molotov cocktails and a cartoon of two bloodied and dead children with a Middle Eastern flag in the background.
Read the whole account. Kudos to reporters Kristina Davis and Katie McDevitt for daring to cover this and include all of the very relevant details about this man’s religion and nationality.
Kudos also to this paper, Arizona’s East Valley Tribune, which seems to be on the right track. It also knocked CAIR’s absurd whines about monitoring radiation outside mosques. Right on.
