The SUV Jihadist

From Frontpage mag:

Before he drove a rented SUV onto the campus of the University of North Carolina and tried to run down and kill as many people as he could on March 3, Mohammed Reza Taheri-Azar left a letter of explanation in his apartment. It is chillingly detached, almost clinical: “In the name of Allah, the merciful, the compassionate. To whom it may concern: I am writing this letter to inform you of my reasons for premeditating and attempting to murder citizens and residents of the United States of America on Friday, March 3, 2006 in the city of Chapel Hill, North Carolina by running them over with my automobile and stabbing them with a knife if the opportunities are presented to me by Allah.”

Lucky then that Allah decided the boy should end up
looking like an ineffectual idiot. Of course the kid's
connection to Islam was from reading the Qur'an "15 times"
on his own. Does an abortion clinic bomber have a connection
to Christianity if, in formulating his fevered ideology, he
reads the bible 15 times? I've long thought that the people
who murder abortion providers are just defective humans who
would be murdering someone anyway; they only latch on to the
right-to-life movement in order to feel better about their
sick obsession. Same with this miserable little cur. The
only difference between him and the "zombie rave killer" was
that he had a more elaborate, though invalid, rationalization
for what he did.

Did it ever occur to Mr. Taheri-Azar that he could have taken his
talents and education and put them to good use in rebuilding
Iraq? Why didn't he day-dream about being one of Iraq's Founding
Fathers? Nah, he came to this country at the age of two. He
doesn't care about Iraq. He didn't have the courage get his
finger purple, he had exactly enough commitment to rent a car
with his father's money and steer it towards the innocent and
unsuspecting. Give him the cell next to Eric Rudolph.
