Denial: NY Police Say Hatchet Wielding Islamic Terrorist was ‘Just An Angry Guy’

Yesterday we had yet another Islamist trying to kill people in the name of Islam and yet another public agency dismissed the man’s ties to Islam saying he was “just an angry guy.” When are our public officials going to wake up and jettison this PC nonsense?

A radical Islamist named Zale Thompson took to the streets of New York City wielding a hatchet last night. He attacked four New York City police officers. Fortunately they soon shot him to death.

So, what did one of the early reports say? Only this…

A hatchet-wielding man who attacked two police officers in New York City before he was shot to death was likely “just an angry guy” and was not connected to any terrorist organizations, a police source told ABC News.

“Just an angry guy”?

No, not really. He is a Muslim interested in jihad and was using his religion as an excuse to kill. This guy is a terrorist. Period.

Yahoo!News reported that Thompson has “Islamist leanings.”

The man who attacked New York City police officers with a hatchet before being shot dead was reported to have Islamic “extremist leanings” police and a monitoring group said.

The man, identified in the US media as Zale Thompson, had posted an array of statements on YouTube and Facebook that “display a hyper-racial focus in both religious and historical contexts, and ultimately hint at his extremist leanings,” the SITE monitoring group said.

Four rookie police officers in the city’s Queens borough were posing for a photograph at the request of a freelance photographer when the man walked up and without saying a word attacked them with the hatchet, a city hall statement said.

Yet the police were initially saying he is “just an angry guy”?

When will our leaders and government agencies wake up? Islam is terrorism. They aren’t “just angry guys.” They are Islamist terrorists.

Former Congressman Allen West said it exactly right in a Tweet today:

“There can be no doubt Islamic jihad has come to our streets. Will we fight back or have we already surrendered?”
