Terrorism? No Doubt.
By Rick March 6th, 2006

AN OUTRIGHT ACT OF TERRORISM WAS COMMITTED ON AN AMERICAN COLLEGE CAMPUS FRIDAY!

And now students are protesting because, once again, authorities and college officials are reluctant to label it and “act of terror.”

You tell me, when a Muslim knowingly drives an SUV into a crowd of people on a college campus to “avenge the death of Muslims around the world” almost killing 9 college kids, is that terrorism?

And when that same Muslim smiles and waves at the cameras before his hearing saying he is “thankful for the opportunity to spread the will of Allah”, you think that might be an act of terror?

When asked if he was trying to kill people, he said “Yes!”.

Think that might be terrorism?

rom WRAL in North Carolina:

Police said Mohammad Taheri-azar, a 2005 UNC-Chapel Hill graduate, admits he acted to “avenge the death of Muslims around the world.” UNC police and local authorities, however, say they have not taken a stance on that interpretation, but are simply repeating what the suspect has told them.

UNC-Chapel Hill student leaders said that Monday’s protest is aimed at the reluctance of the university to label Friday’s incident as an act of terrorism.

“This is innocent people being attacked by an SUV, driven by a man who was doing it for retaliation for treatment of Muslims around the world,” said Jillian Bandes, with the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies. “To me, that spells terrorism.”

Then the report asks:

But were Taheri-azar’s alleged actions acts of terrorism?

“I think (what Taheri-azar did) is extreme,” said Dan VanAtta, a friend of the suspect. “But then again, I don’t know what was going through his head. … Mohammed was a good guy.”

Yeah. He sounds swell.

Why are they even asking if this is “terrorism” or not? I don’t get it.
But this does remind me of another recent case in Oklahoma which a kid with ties to the Muslim community blew himself up with a homemade bomb on a college campus with thousands of people nearby enjoying a football game.

Authorities were real quick in that case to also dismiss terror, labeling it a suicide.
What is going on here?

Taheri-azar, who is currently in Raleigh’s Central Prison under a $5.5 million bond, is charged with nine counts of attempted first-degree murder and nine counts of assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury with intent to kill.
