What Did America Do to This Peaceful Practitioner of Islam That Led Him to Try and Decapitate NYPD Officers?

Time for some soul-searching, America.

A bloodied steel hatchet lay on a rainy Queens sidewalk on Thursday like an portentous question mark. Was the bearded man who used it to wound two New York City police officers motivated by radical Islam?

Zale H. Thompson can no longer answer that question. He is dead, stopped by bullets from the guns of two other officers.

His unprovoked attack on four policemen, which injured one critically in the head and sliced the other in the shoulder, was certain suicide.

A chain of attacks and plots in rapid succession in the Western world by assailants with a radical interpretation of Islam have raised suspicion that Thompson’s attack could be the latest link.

Though police say they have no concrete reason to suspect that so far in the ongoing investigation, there is a bad sign.

And there are uncomfortable commonalities with other Islamist attacks that have law enforcement in New York and Washington on high alert.

On a Facebook page bearing Thompson’s name, a warrior masked in a head and face scarf and armed with spear, sword and rifle gazes out at the beholder. The vintage black and white photo is the profile picture of the user, who lives in Queens.

A Quran quote in classic Arabic calligraphy mentioning judgment against those who have wandered astray serves as the page’s banner.

Yet we have pinheads still questioning if this was terrorism, when it could not be more obvious.

A chain of attacks and plots in rapid succession in the Western world by assailants with a radical interpretation of Islam have raised suspicion that Thompson’s attack could be the latest link.

Though police say they have no concrete reason to suspect that so far in the ongoing investigation, there is a bad sign.

You think?

    Of course, you know what needs to be done… ban hatchets! After all, if it could save just one life…

    It’s a safe bet whoever (Brumfield) wrote that drivel votes Democrat. Just plain idiotic.

    One scene from the movie Tombstone comes to mind:
    (paraphrasing due to old man memory problems)

    Wyatt: “Doc, what makes a man like Ringo hate so much?”

    Doc: “Why being born Wyatt.”

    or in 2014 vernacular…”Haters gotta hate.”

    Actually, I wish we’d stop worrying about the word “terrorism” and *start* worrying about the word “Islam”. It’s debatable as to whether it is terrorism (which would be driven by a need to achieve some policy aim), but there’s no doubt at all that it is driven by the insanity we call “Islam”.
    This is why the MSM can loudly proclaim “Oh, this was just some lone nut – no terrorism to see here!” Whether he is “lone” or not, whether he is aiming for a some political change or just wants to kill some infidels before he gets his 72 raisins, the problem is he is motivated by Islam. *THIS* is the commonality that should get our attention.
