On Friday, a man who claims to be the brother of ‘Lady Al Qaeda’, a high profile terrorist who is serving an 86 year prison sentence for trying to kill US military personnel, was holding four hostages in a Texas synagogue. He posted a livestream Friday afternoon and was in a standoff with Colleyville police, who deployed a SWAT team near the synagogue. In the livestream, he can be heard repeating that he is ‘going to die’. Today, the FBI identified the man who was shot and killed in the standoff as Malik Faisal Akram. Just an hour in to the situation, after the hostage had demanded the release of an Al Qaeda terrorist, the Michigan Attorney General attributed the attack to ‘white supremacy’. The Washington Free Beacon Reported–
“As the hostage situation at a Texas synagogue developed on Saturday, Michigan’s attorney general, Democrat Dana Nessel, raised the possibility that white supremacists were behind the attack.
Appearing on MSNBC on Saturday afternoon, about an hour after it had been reported that the attacker was demanding the release of imprisoned terrorist Aafia Siddiqui, Nessel said her “biggest concern” was that the attack was a “hate crime” or “domestic terrorism,” pointing to “white supremacy organizations.”
“We have seen an incredible rise in rhetoric that is anti-Semitic being trafficked all around the country,” Nessel said, noting “an exponential rise in the formation and the membership of these extremist organizations, many of which are white supremacy organizations, and they traffic in hatred against Jews and other minorities.”
“If it does turn out that is the motivating factor here, it would hardly be a surprise,” Nessel said.”
