BREAKING: The FBI says the Texas synagogue hostage taker’s demands were specifically focused on issue not connected to the Jewish community. https://t.co/PUxQkIwejx

An FBI and a police spokeswoman declined to answer questions about who shot the man.
DeSarno said the hostage taker was specifically focused on an issue not directly connected to the Jewish community and there was no immediate indication that the man had was part of any broader plan, but DeSarno said the agency’s investigation “will have global reach.”
Here is some insight on the terrorist the hostage taker was trying to get released.
‘Lady Al Qaeda’ the woman Texas synagogue hostage-taker wanted freed: She planned chemical attacks on Empire State Building and Brooklyn Bridge and demanded juror at her trial be DNA tested to see if they were Jewish
The man who stormed a Texas synagogue on the Sabbath and was holding hostages before he was shot and killed was demanding the release of ‘Lady Al Qaeda,’ who is serving 86 years in a federal prison less than 30 miles from where the hostage standoff took place.
Siddiqui was arrested in Afghanistan in 2008 by local forces who found her with two kilos of poison sodium cyanide and plans for chemical attacks on New York’s Brooklyn Bridge and the Empire State Building.
She is serving an 86-year sentence at the Federal Medical Center, Carswell in Fort Worth, about 25 miles from the hostage site at the Texas temple.
During her trial, Aafia demanded that every jury member get DNA tested to see if they were Jewish.
That’s not all.
By all accounts in the trial record, Siddiqui was a combative defendant, refusing to come to court.
“She also complained that a Zionist conspiracy existed and would prevent her from getting a fair trial,” the judge said at her sentencing. “Indeed, during the course of the proceedings, she said ‘All I did say was that Israel was behind 9/11.'”
So a radical Islamist takes a Rabbi and three other Jews hostage at a Synagogue during Shabbat services, demanding for the release of a viciously antisemitic woman he calls his sister, and according to the FBI and Biden’s Press Secretary it’s just a hostage situation in Dallas that has nothing to do with the Jewish community.
It’s not like weren’t countless other potential targets for hostages to be taken within 25 miles of Fort Worth, he just accidentally found himself taking hostages in a Synagogue on Shabbat.
I guess when the news broke that the FBI reported that in 2020, Jews were the top target of religious hate crimes at nearly 60% of religiously motivated hate crimes, and number three for all hate crimes overall, despite only being 2% of the US population, somebody decided that the best was to bring down these number was to not count clearly antisemitic hate crimes as antisemitic.
Nope. Nothing antisemitic to see here.
What we need to do is be mindful of the real victims of this incident: Muslims.
You’re about to hear some ugly & vicious Islamophobia & anti-Muslim bigotry this weekend from elected officials, commentators and even mainstream media. Hope I’m wrong. People will use it to divide Jewish and Muslim communities for their political agenda. Don’t fall for it.

Many of them will claim to care about Jewish lives as they openly support and parrot vile anti semitic conspiracies. They don’t care about our lives or our communities. Muslim is easy synonym for terrorist and those who downplay Jan 6 will now talk a lot about national security.

Whenever there is an Islamist terrorist attack, the real problem is not the Islamist terrorist attack. It’s the anti-Muslim backlash.
You know, the anti-Muslim backlash that happens as frequently as every time a state expands concealed carry rights it turns every fender bender and parking lot misunderstanding into a blood-in-the-streets shootout at the OK Corral. They never materialize, but the narrative continues unabated.
And all of those Conservatives who are concerned about an Islamist attack on a Synagogue are really just antisemites who wa t to use this totally not antisemitic incident to justify their Islamophobia.
The Jewish and Muslim communities must stand together. No matter how many times violent Islamists attack Jews and their houses of worship. Muslims firing shot at Synagogues and Jewish Community Centers is just friendly ribbing. Not that any Jew in the US has every shot up or taken hostages in a Mosque.
If you want a glaring example of Leftist antisemitism, this is perfect.
An antisemitic Islamist takes a Rabbi and three other Jews at a Synagogue hostage on Shabbat to demand the release of another antisemitic Islamist terrorist and the narrative being spun from the White House, FBI, and Leftist media is that this had nothing to do with antisemitism and the real concern is White Supremacist Islamophobia.
Dear Jewish readers, if you read this and have moderate, normie Jews in your circle of family and friends, Jews that can still be reasoned with and are not dyed in the wool Leftist Yevsektsiya, rub their noses in this shit and demand to know why they give Biden and the Democrats a pass on this?
How many more times does the Left have to reveal its true antisemitic character before they get it?
