I didn’t even find out about this until many hours later. Typical religious-extremist Muslim activity: target and kill unarmed civilians. The synopsis:
A woman was dead and five others were hospitalized this afternoon after a shooting at the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle building in downtown Seattle by a man who declared he was “angry with Israel.”
Seattle police later arrested the alleged gunman, who reportedly had walked into the building between Lenora and Virginia streets on Third Avenue in Belltown and started shooting. One victim died at the scene, according to police.
All five of the wounded are women, said Pamela Steele, a spokeswoman for Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. The women, ranging in age from 20 and through their 40s, were brought in between 4:30 and 5 p.m. Three victims are in the operating room now and are in critical condition, Steele said. All three were shot in the abdomen.
It doesn’t mention until almost halfway through the story that the man claimed to be “a Muslim American” who was “angry at Israel.” These people are our enemies living in our own country, and we need to name them as such.
Here’s a quick round up of blogger reaction over at Instapundit. I have the same sentiments as them, including this one: “Me? I’m going to buy a gun. I’m serious.” Something like this would have stopped the dirtbag, keeping the body count to one — the bad guy.
