Combine the news that far leftwing organizations like ANSWER are teamed up with leftwing kooks like Ramsey Clark calling support to Israel a high crime worthy of impeachment and you can see how some lefties may have become so unhinged as to attack a Jewish center in Seattle:
t least two people have been shot at the Jewish Federation at 2031 Third Ave. in downtown Seattle. One person has been taken into custody.
One person was reportedly shot in the abdomen and another, a woman, was shot in the arm. They are being taken to Harborview Medical Center.
The incident began around 4 p.m.
The fact the SWAT team was there is telling. More as it comes out.
Update: Seems two were shot in the stomach:
The extent of the victims’ injuries was not immediately known, but reportedly at least two were shot in the stomach, and they were being taken to Harborview Medical Center. A witness told KOMO 4 News that she heard at least four gunshots and saw at least four victims.
Police blocked off several city blocks to investigate.
Will keep watching this one.
UpdateDamn! Yes this was an attack on Jews because of Israeli efforts to defend themselves against Hezbollah:
At least five people were shot – one fatally – this afternoon at the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle by a man a witness said was upset about “what was going on in Israel.”
Police spokesman Rich Pruitt said there was one shooter, who was apprehended without incident outside the Jewish Federation Building located on the corner of Third Avenue and Virginia Street. Pruitt said there were at least two victims on the third floor of the building.
Police got reports of shots fired shortly before 4 p.m.
One witness, who declined to give her name, said a man walked into the Jewish Federation building with a gun, said he was upset about what was going on in Israel, then opened fire. After the shootings, the man said to call 911, the witness said.
Was the person a Muslim or a radical lefty? Who knows. But this is insane. There is no way the people in this Seattle office have any control over events in the ME.
Update: The shooter was a Muslim American who attacked 5 unarmed women, killing one. Typical Muslim warrior-coward. How come they never fight warrior to warrior?Our prayers to the family of the woman killed and those injured in this despicable act.
