Baffling Biden Statement: “I don’t think there is sufficient information to know about why he targeted that synagogue”

Baffling Biden Statement: “I don’t think there is sufficient information to know about why he targeted that synagogue”

“We don’t have — I don’t think there is sufficient information to know about why he targeted that synagogue or why he insisted on the release of someone who’s been in prison for over 10 years, why he was engaged — why he was using antisemitic and anti-Israeli comments. I — we just don’t have enough facts.”

When asked yesterday, Biden refused to speculate why Malik Faisal Akram took people at a synagogue hostage in Colleyville, TX.

From the transcript:

Q Mr. President, do you know more about the motivations of the person?

THE PRESIDENT: No, I don’t. I — there’s speculation, but I’m not going to get into that. I will — I’m going to have a press conference on Wednesday, and I’ll be happy to go into detail of what I know in detail at that time.

Q Do you know why he targeted that specific synagogue, Mr. President?

THE PRESIDENT: Well, no, I don’t. We don’t have — I don’t think there is sufficient information to know about why he targeted that synagogue or why he insisted on the release of someone who’s been in prison for over 10 years, why he was engaged — why he was using antisemitic and anti-Israeli comments. I — we just don’t have enough facts.

Um, Akram wanted the government to release convicted terrorist Aafia Siddiqui from prison:

Siddiqui, a Pakistani neuroscientist and MIT graduate, was accused of having ties to al Qaeda and sentenced to 86 years in 2010 for trying to murder American soldiers in Afghanistan. In 2008, she had grabbed a soldier’s M4 rifle and used it to shoot at another soldier while being pulled in for questioning; during the attack she “exclaimed her intent and desire to kill Americans,” according to the Justice Department. Siddiqui was wounded by gunfire during the incident.

During her trial, Siddiqui expressed hostility toward Jewish people, suggesting at one point that potential jurors undergo genetic testing to confirm they are not Jewish. She is currently imprisoned at a medical facility near Fort Worth.

As usual, Biden also sent mixed messages, proving he can’t stay on message:

Why does anybody expect anything intelligent from this corrupt schumck?

    No one does but many (mostly in the media) think that if they pretend hard enough, they’ll fool the people.

      They know they arent fooling anybody. They just expect to write the narrative they want for posterity. To Hades with the facts.

    What are you talking about? Read that quote from the CBS site:

    “… That we have this capacity to deal with assaults on particularly the antisemitism that has grown up.”

    It’s rhetorical brilliance! Lincoln, Roosevelt, Churchill and Reagan never, ever dreamed of being so eloquent.

    I have chills and tingles worthy of Chris Matthews when I read Biden’s words and hear him speak.

    Anything that doesn’t baffle him, he gets wrong.

Peter Sellers should sue.

JackinSilverSpring | January 17, 2022 at 8:16 pm

Brandon should have stopped after the third word (after ‘think’).

Creepy idiot. Works harder for Islamic terrorists than America.

Intention is an empty investigation, the word being a retrospective token in accounts rather than a present thing at any time. Biden is just refusing to latch on to one account in favor of some other to be decided on.

About the only sensible question is what his plan was, which ties into how stupid he is. Not exactly a terrorist.

There are about ten ways to improve his performance if he wanted to harm Jews and get his sister released, or at least cause a media crisis about it. A true terrorist would have thought of one.

    Milhouse in reply to rhhardin. | January 18, 2022 at 12:47 am

    Not his sister. That turned out to be a lie.

      henrybowman in reply to Milhouse. | January 18, 2022 at 1:12 am

      Right. He was the “brother” of terrorist chick the same way the thug who kept doxing jurors was the “nephew” of George Floyd.

      Arminius in reply to Milhouse. | January 20, 2022 at 12:00 pm

      Muslims, particularly jihadis, commonly refer to each other as brothers and sisters even though they may not be blood relatives. Malik Faisal Akram did in fact refer to Aafia Siddiqui as his sister during the siege, although whether he did so while communicating with the hostage negotiators or simply in front of the hostages isn’t at all clear.

      The bottom line is if it was a lie everyone got the impression Siddiqui was Akram’s sister because he referred to her as such. So anyone repeating it wasn’t lying; Akram claimed the relationship. And a lot of Muslims would argue Akram wasn’t lying since it’s often used as a term of respect. Just like Christians often refer to co-religionists as brother or sister, or in some cultures young persons might call a man old enough to be their father by the title father, even though they have no blood relationship.

Joe just doesn’t have enough facts about the poor Muslim terrorist.
Like the facts he had when he shot his mouth off about Kyle Rittenhouse being a white supremacist who belonged to a militia.
Joe Biden should die in a fucking fire.

“The motive may never be known.”

We don’t have enough evidence to speculate why Biden claimed that Romney would reinstate slavery when he said that Romney “would put you all back in chains”.

“am i going mad or did the word THINK escape your lips?”


Let’s face it – the guy could have left behind a handwritten note saying he hated Jews and the WH would still say “we don’t know why”

A bit off-topic, but still relevant: read this excellent expose on the insanity that is going on under the radar:

The Making of Lina Hidalgo: From Democratic Party Nursery to Omicron Hysteria Queen:
This first part of an investigative series by Dan Cohen reveals that, despite her image as a progressive and political outsider, Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo is the ultimate insider and works with billionaires to crush the working class and poor, and usher in a new technocratic biosecurity state:

If he had ended his statement after 3 words, I’d be in total agreement.

This certainly is Obama’s third term (and Hillary Clinton’s first term, if she had one).

“Why does anybody expect anything intelligent from this corrupt schumck?”

I’ve arrived at the point where I’ve learned, they aren’t smart because they don’t have to be. They are protected. And when you are protected you can be stupid as fuck. You’ll get away with it. In plain sight, you’ll get away with it.

Sorry for my language.

I’m of Italian descent. But, every ethnicity has organized crime in their background. I recently stopped trying to figure out how those other assholes get away with it. You and me, we go into business, the military. They join the racket. And you don’t need to be smart if you’ve got the courts in your pocket.

Ethically, morally , and mentally challenged .F. Joe Biden…master puppet. This criticism is misdirected as he is kept there at the junta’s pleasure ….A rubber tree plant useful as a rubber stamp. The ultimate patsy….and fall guy when things go really bad.

Allahu Akbar! it is a complete mystery. Inshallah! We may never know the reason for this. Allah be praised.

Damned Jews!

Do I need to add that I was engaging in Satire? In today’s world I feel I do.

Calm down, people. The question was whether Biden knew “why he targeted that specific synagogue”. To which he answered, correctly, that there is insufficient information “to know about why he targeted that synagogue“.

The fact that the guy is an antisemite doesn’t answer the question. At this point nobody knows the answer. His choice of target doesn’t make much sense. My guess is that he chose it almost at random. I guess he first tried to visit the prison, and then went looking for a nearby synagogue and attacked the first one he found. Had he done any research he’d have hit one with more than four people present!

Antisemitism is also insufficient to answer why he thought attacking a synagogue would help him achieve his goal of freeing the terroratrix. As the FBI correctly said, that goal has nothing at all to do with Jews. Maybe he figured as long as he was going to attack someone anyway it may as well be the Jews. Or maybe he seriously believed that the Jews — all Jews — literally control America, so he thought the rabbi could pick up a phone and order the prison to release her. We just don’t know, and we may never know.

Remember that the Pulse nightclub terrorist chose his target completely at random, and had no idea what sort of place it was.

    “The question was whether Biden knew “why he targeted that specific synagogue”.

    Who the hell cares? Why is that even a question? You might as well ask why a carjacker targeted a specific victim. He didn’t — he targeted the car. “Look! It’s a Menorah Benz! Pull it over!”

      Arminius in reply to henrybowman. | January 18, 2022 at 3:00 am

      I’m still amused the Tsarnaev brothers robbed some guy of a Benz with a “coexist” bumper sticker.

      Snopes claims it didn’t happen.

      “Rumor later claimed that the vehicle the Tsarnaev brothers carjacked bore a ‘Coexist’ bumper sticker, a claim based on the following screen capture from a television news report…”

      When Snopes is pulling this hard, its Alec Baldwin funny.

        TargaGTS in reply to Arminius. | January 18, 2022 at 8:11 am

        I’m amused – and amazed – that in 2011, months after Russia called the FBI to warn them about Tamerlin Tsarnaev and while he was under surveillance (of some sort) by the FBI, Tamerlin Tsarnaev murdered a close-known associate and two others…and the FBI didn’t figure it out until years later. Great job, guys.

        When the FBI was putting it together, they interviewed a material suspect in his own home who they then shot dead. How convenient.

        COEXIST excludes the world’s major religions, not limited to the Pro-Choice, selective, opportunistic, exclusive (“ethical”) religion.

      AnAdultInDiapers in reply to henrybowman. | January 18, 2022 at 3:13 am

      Clearly the person that asked the question cares. Clearly lots of people here care, as they’re all ranting at Biden’s inability to answer that question.

      Do you know why he chose that synagogue in a town nobody in the UK’s ever heard of, and not any other? I don’t.

      On 6th January last year some people entered a building. Which building? Apparently nobody cares.

      Milhouse in reply to henrybowman. | January 19, 2022 at 6:17 pm

      Nonetheless, it was the question he was asked. And the answer her gave is the correct one.

    Arminius in reply to Milhouse. | January 18, 2022 at 3:12 am

    Yes, complete mystery that a Muslim just happened to target a gay bar.

    “The November 2015 Paris attacks were a series of coordinated Islamist terrorist attacks[13][14] that took place on Friday[15][16] 13 November 2015 in Paris, France, and the city’s northern suburb, Saint-Denis. Beginning at 9:15 p.m., three suicide bombers struck outside the Stade de France in Saint-Denis, during an international football match, after failing to gain entry to the stadium. Another group of attackers then fired on crowded cafés and restaurants in Paris, with one of them also detonating an explosive, killing himself in the process. A third group carried out another mass shooting and took hostages at a rock concert attended by 1,500 people in the Bataclan theatre, leading to a stand-off with police. The attackers were either shot or blew themselves up when police raided the theatre.[17]…”

    Complete mystery, total mystery,

    It’s totally baffling that Muslim terrorists targeted a soccer game, a wine bar, and a night club. Why, whatever problem could devout Muslims have with a bunch of people drinking wine listening to music?

    I am totally confuzzled.

    The rabbi was involved in the “interfaith” movement. I’m guessing he was a “known quantity” and might have been considered to be sympathetic. (“Interfaith” is often a synonym for “progressive”.)

    Arminius in reply to Milhouse. | January 20, 2022 at 8:45 am

    The FBI examined his cell phone after the shooting and found he had searched for nightclubs in the Orlando area the evening before the shooting.

    “…Salman’s lawyers said their client couldn’t have known Mateen was planning an attack on Pulse, because even the gunman didn’t know his final target.

    Fennern testified that on the eve of June 12 Mateen searched for “Orlando nightclubs” before driving near Eve Orlando nightclub and ultimately the Pulse nightclub at 1:35 a.m., according to cellphone records. Mateen also was at Disney Springs before he headed north into downtown Orlando…”

    Apparently he wanted to attack the Disney venue as a first choice. But the fact that he was just searching for nightclubs shows it wasn’t a random attack; He was apparently scared off by the security at Disney Springs and chose alternate targets. Just the fact that nightclubs serve alcohol and played instrumental music, both of which are haram in Islam* would have been enough for him to target one.*

    But of course he knew it was a gay club from his internet search. It was not randomly chosen; he didn’t just happen to be driving by. He was looking for it. It’s ridiculous to call the attack on the Pulse nightclub “random” since it was one of the nightclubs that showed up in his search records.

    *All the targets the terrorists chose to attack in Paris on 13 November 2015 were chosen for specific reasons. They tried to attack a soccer game at the Stade de France, but when they couldn’t get in they blew themselves outside. Sound familiar? How many times have you read about ISIS executing or whipping teenagers in Syria for even watching a soccer game on TV? Under a strict reading of Islam sports are haram (forbidden). Then they attacked bars, restaurants, and cafes in Paris because, what to bars, restaurants, and cafes in France serve? Alcohol. Then the shot up the Bataclan Theatre during a concert. Because, most instruments are forbidden in Islam (at weddings tambourines might be permitted

      Arminius in reply to Arminius. | January 20, 2022 at 8:50 am

      The terrorist who blew up the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester chose the target because musical instruments and singing and dancing girls are also haram. Which has an advantage beyond simply choosing a target where the infidels are engaged in forbidden activities. Because it’s a sin to kill a fellow Muslim without right. There might be people who were born Muslim, nominal Muslims, at all those locations, but they certainly weren’t good, practicing Muslims. They would be among the hypocrites. And if your hypocrisy is sufficiently sinful then if falls into the category of apostasy. It’s not a sin to kill hypocrites and apostates.

Can someone make sense of this?

“Are singing and music allowed in Islam. i have come through one hadith which i am quoting it down : From Bukhari Volume 2, Book 15, Number 70: Narrated Aisha: Allah’s Apostle (p.b.u.h) came to my house while two girls were singing beside me the songs of Buath (a story about the war between the two tribes of the Ansar, the Khazraj and the Aus, before Islam). The Prophet (p.b.u.h) lay down and turned his face to the other side. Then Abu Bakr came and spoke to me harshly saying, “Musical instruments of Satan near the Prophet (p.b.u.h) ? ” Allah’s Apostle (p.b.u.h) turned his face towards him and said, “Leave them.” When Abu Bakr became inattentive, I signaled to those girls to go out and they left. It was the day of ‘Id, and the Black people were playing with shields and spears; so either I requested the Prophet (p.b.u.h) or he asked me whether I would like to see the display. I replied in the affirmative. Then the Prophet (p.b.u.h) made me stand behind him and my cheek was touching his cheek and he was saying, “Carry on! O Bani Arfida,” till I got tired. The Prophet (p.b.u.h) asked me, “Are you satisfied (Is that sufficient for you)?” I replied in the affirmative and he told me to leave. This same Hadith is reported to us again in Sahih Muslim Book 004, Number 1942 In the light of above hadith what can we infer?

…Al-‘Atheem Abaadi may Allaah have mercy upon him said: ‘The Prophet sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam ( may Allaah exalt his mention ) did not disapprove Abu Bakr may Allaah be pleased with him for calling the songs ‘the musical instruments of the devil’. He sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam ( may Allaah exalt his mention ) approved of the singing of the two girls as they were young and not yet pubescent. In addition, the girls were singing Bedouin songs of the battle of Bu’aath about courage and war.

However, under the influence of the devil, some people have stretched this exception to include the singing of women or feminine looking boys whose voices and appearances cause temptation and who sing using lyrics that invites to fornication, adultery, dissoluteness, and promote the consumption of intoxicants. Furthermore, they sing using musical instruments which Allaah and His Prophet sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam ( may Allaah exalt his mention ) had prohibited. They neglect clear evidences that prohibit such acts and base the permissibility of this prohibited act on the narration of the two young girls who did not use a flute, or Duff (a tambourine-like instrument without bells) and they never danced or clapped when singing. Finally, this practice of leaving the conclusive evidences for an unclear indication of an evidence is the characteristic of the people of falsehood.’

Allaah Knows best.

Reading the story and comments was illustrative. However, Xiden is obfuscating. The real question is not motivation. It’s HOW THE HELL HE GOT INTO THIS COUNTRY!
He has a rap sheet with multiple arrests and convictions. He should have been turned around at the port of entry. Even his family is in disbelief about how he got in. In my opinion this isn’t about terror, it’s about a broken entry system. FJB!!

Hey, how about that Waukesha parade massacre, eh? It’s been all over the news lately, I wonder what’s happening?

The vile Dhimmi-crats doing what they do best — engaging in indefensible, dishonest, morally despicable and feckless dhimmitude, excusing, whitewashing, downplaying and otherwise rationalizing Muslim supremacist/terrorist violence against Jews and other non-Muslims.

And, to think that some idiots actually have questioned why I characterize Dhimmi-crats as “Dhimmi-crats.” The vile Dhimmi-crats’ persistent inability to evince even a scintilla of criticism with regard to the intrinsic pathologies of the supremacist, totalitarian and belligerent ideology of “Submission,” and, their inability to condemn Submission’s most fanatical adherents when they carry out evil attacks against Jews and other non-Muslims, fully justify the moniker that I invoke to refer to them

Honestly, I agree with them. We don’t yet know why he targeted that synagogue. (Though I’m laying money it had to do with the rabbi’s leadership in the “interfaith” movement.) We likely know why he chose a synagogue – he’s a muslim (and a crazy one, at that). But why target an out of the way one in a still relatively small town (I went to middle school at the school where the police staged) several miles from Carswell?

    I’d take that bet. I don’t believe the rabbi’s leftist political views, or his alleged anti-zionism, had anything to do with the terrorist’s choice. I don’t believe the terrorist was even aware of it.

freespeechfanatic | January 18, 2022 at 9:51 am

But there is sufficient information to call Kyle Rittenhouse a white supremacist?

Biden is worried that people will exercise liberal license to indulge diversity [dogma] (i.e. color judgment, class-based bigotry), or something, and follow the Rainbow ideology of selective exclusion.

I don’t believe that there’s sufficient information on how President * speaks without us seeing the strings.

in fairness, the question from the press was why he “targeted that specific synagogue.” Nobody will ever know — maybe because it was the only one in town?

    Arminius in reply to lawgrad. | January 20, 2022 at 1:01 pm

    The key will be how he was able to get there at all. He arrived at JFK on the 2nd and apparently spent that night and at least the night of the 3rd at a Queens hotel at $80/night. Which is apparently cheap for a hotel in NYC. By the 6th he was in Dallas, and got a bed at the Union Gospel Mission homeless shelter. He stayed there until the 13th. During his stay in Dallas he apparently bought his pistol. I can guarantee it would have been no problem to pick up a gun on the street in that neighborhood, especially one that had already been used in a crime and someone was looking to get rid of it. Then he attacked the Synagogue on the 15th.

    Nobody knows how he got from NYC to Dallas. And I doubt a guy staying at a homeless shelter, from the UK with no US driver’s license, would have had a car of his own. Nobody knows yet how he got from Dallas to Colleyville. Or what he did between leaving the homeless shelter on the 13th and his assault on the Synagogue on the 15th.

The Texas gunman was reported to police a year ago by a local councillor after issuing a chilling threat that he wanted to kill and bomb Jews, the JC can reveal.
