Self Proclaimed Terrorist, Omeed Aziz Popal Mounts San Francisco SUV Jihad Near Jewish Center

http://www.pipelinenews.org/index.cfm?page=popal82906%2Ehtm August 30, 2006 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - The first call yesterday through the S.F. Police Dept. switchboard came at 12:47 PM. The report was for a hit-and-run but before the 20 minute rampage was over one pedestrian lay dead and at least 13 others were injured, some very seriously including two who were crushed under the wheels of the assailant's SUV on the sidewalk in front of the San Francisco Jewish Center, located at 3200 California Street. The driver, Omeed Aziz Popal used his black Honda Pilot as a battering ram as he slalomed through a 15 square block area - on the hunt for pedestrians - jumping curbs, careening over sidewalks and driving against traffic. On the scene, KTVU reporter Rob Roth stated that one of the eye-witnesses [who declined to appear on camera] claimed that Opal "referred to himself as a terrorist." A San Francisco bomb squad examination of Popal's vehicle for explosives proved negative but the city's police department - a multicultural nightmare - was quick to spring into action, hushing any speculation that the Afghani Muslim driver was a terrorist, despite his apparent crime scene confession. Later in the afternoon, the PD's "command staff" issued a statement denying any evidence of terrorism, though it remains unclear how they came to that conclusion so rapidly and upon what evidence that claim was based. As PipeLineNews.org reported last March in the case of confessed jihadist Mohammed Taheri-azar - University Of North Carolina Jeep Jihadist Claims He Was Avenging The "Deaths Of Muslims" & Text Of Mohammed Taheri-azar's Letter Explaining Reasoning Behind The Jeep Jihad & Is Reza Taheri-azar A Takfiri? - there is a precedent to Popal's suspected motivation. 1999-2006 PipeLineNews.org, all rights reserved
