One Dead, Five Wounded At Seattle Jewish Center

SEATTLE - One person was killed and five others were wounded by gunshots Friday afternoon at the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle and one person was arrested, police said.

All five of the wounded are women and were taken to Harborview Medical Center, where three are listed in critical condition and in surgery, and two are listed in satisfactory condition. One victim was reportedly shot in the stomach, another was a 37-year-old woman who was 20 weeks pregnant and was shot in the arm. She is said to be one of the two in satisfactory condition.

A SWAT team searched the federation building, looking for any other victims or anyone hiding, Seattle police spokesman Rich Pruitt said, adding investigators were confident that the man they had in custody was the only shooting suspect.


SEATTLE (Reuters) - A woman was killed and five other women were wounded on Friday when a gunman opened fire at a Jewish organization in downtown Seattle that last weekend organized a rally in support of Israel.

Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle Vice President Amy Wasser-Simpson told the Seattle Times in a story on its Web site that a man got through security at the building and shouted, "I'm a Muslim American; I'm angry at Israel," then began shooting.


The federation had organized a large rally last weekend to demonstrate support for Israel in its fight against Hizbollah in southern Lebanon.

The story is the same again today. People living their lives are suddenly dead or wounded because an Muslim killed or wounded them. Why? Because they offended the Muslim. There is no safe place for you either, whether you are Jewish or whether you are just a person riding a subway train to work or taking your children to school. There is nowhere to run and nowhere to hide. Your chances of being killed or wounded are random. Muslims kill at random. Anyone will do. Confront them and they run away. Sometimes they turn on women.

Hey, I'm angry at Pakistan. Should I go stand outside the Pakistani embassy pumping lead into women too? I mean, everyone is angry at someone sometime, but the only religion which says its not only ok, but actually GOOD to act upon that anger is Islam.
PS RCMP...that was not a serious threat, so don't bother taking time away from tracking down swarthy fertilizer buyers to arrest lil ol me.

Sudden Jihad Syndrome (SJS) - it's a symptom of the mental illness of Islam.

SJS can afflict any Muslim, anywhere, anytime.

I'm angry as well, and I won't be out shooting women either. It takes a special kind of scum-bag to think about doing something like that, and it's not in me. Those among us who are that evil are either rapists and sadist murderers or Muslims. And yet there are those among us who consider themselves normal and decent people who'll no doubt be on the streets protesting the man's innocence or will be in fern bars proclaiming our guilt in pushing him to madness due to our imperialist conspiracies. I do have a limit. All of us do; and the Leftist push me to mine frequently. Still, I never shoot them. Go figure.

Remember you came up with the word "womitude", an element of dhimmitude? The shooting incident in Seattle could be considered womitude. When a Muslim guy doesn't like what the infidels are doing, he feels justified in pumping lead into women who are guilty only of venturing out of their homes and showing up for work that day.

Just like Marc Lapine did at L'ecole Polytechnique in Montreal. If I remember correctly, he was mad at a male professor because he had not been accepted into an engineering course or had failed it or something. His remedy was to pump a few rounds of ammunition into women who were guilty only of showing up for class that day.
