Mosque member on terrorist who killed Jewish woman and wounded 5 -whose father helped found Islamic Center "good parents -good people"

July 29, 2006

Jihadi peacenik Naveed Haq.

Islamic community of Seattle tells media that Muslims are the real victims of Muslim terrorist rampage that killed and wounded Jews.

MIM: The sociopathic mindset of Muslims in nowhere more evident then in the statements issued by a member of the mosque which the shooter attended and his father helped found, who lamented that the killing of a Jewish woman and shooting of 5 others "Was a sad day for our (the Muslim) community."

Not to be outdone the Arab American Community Coalition announced they are cancelling their anti Israel march "out of concern for safety of members of the "Arab -American community".

The AACC also urged law enforcement agents to take all necessary actions to prevent such crimes from happening "against ...Arabs and Muslims in the future". Which begs the question as to when there ever was an attack on Muslims or community institutions in Seattle.

The Arab American Community Coalition reacted "with shock and sorrow" to the shootings. "Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families," said the coalition's Rita Zawaideh in a statement faxed to the media this morning. "We urge our law enforcement agencies to take all necessary actions to prevent such crims from happening against Jews, Arabs and Muslims in the future." The group cancelled a march that had been scheduled today to call for a ceasefire in the Middle East "in light of yesterday's violent actions, and out of concern for the safety of members of the Arab-American community and the general public." "Violence against anyone because of ethincity or religion does not advance the cause of peace, justice and liberation in Lebanon, Palestine or Israel." And speaking of Seattle and its diverse religious and ethic community, the statement continued: "This crime is not a reflection of what our community is about"

Suspect in shooting described as quiet loner



WEST RICHLAND, Wash. -- The suspect in a deadly shooting at a Jewish charity was the quiet loner in a well-known family in the local Muslim community, members of his family's mosque said Saturday.

Authorities say Naveen Haq, 30, may have planned his attack on a Seattle Jewish center from the Tri-Cities area of southeastern Washington.

One woman was killed and five wounded in the Friday attack. Haq told police dispatchers he was angered by the war in Iraq and the United States' military cooperation with Israel.

"We feel bad for his parents - good parents, good people," said Muhammad Ullah, a close friend of the suspect's family and a senior member of the Islamic Center of the Tri-Cities. "Today, this is a totally sad day for our community."

Haq's father, Mian Haq, was a founding member of the Islamic Center in this south-central Washington town in 1979 and has been active in the community for decades, Ullah said.

Haq's parents, who moved to the United States from Pakistan in the 1970s, are devastated and struggling to understand how their son strayed from the teachings of Islam, Ullah said.
