Cowardly Terrorism

When a Muslim man went to a Jewish center, he intended to murder as many Jews as possible. He gained access by grabbing a teenager and holding a gun to her head:

SEATTLE (AP) - The man suspected in a fatal shooting rampage hid behind a potted plant in a Jewish charity's foyer and forced his way through a security door by holding a gun to a 13-year-old girl's head, the police chief said Saturday.

Once inside, police say, Naveed Afzal Haq opened fire with two semiautomatic pistols. One woman, Pam Waechter, 58, of Seattle was killed at the scene. Five more women were wounded.

Haq, 30, was ordered held on $50 million bail Saturday pending formal charges of murder and attempted murder.

Haq, a Muslim, told authorities he was angered by the war in Iraq and U.S. military cooperation with Israel.

"He pointedly blamed the Jewish people for all of these problems,'' Seattle Police Chief Gil Kerlikowske said at a news conference Saturday.

...One of the women wounded in Friday's shooting - hit in the arm as she shielded her pregnant belly - helped bring the crisis to an end by crawling into her office, calling 911, and convincing her assailant to talk to dispatchers, Kerlikowske said.

Emphasis mine. the woman is pregnant and was shot. Of course the scumbag attacked where he knew there'd be no infidel men, only women.

Reuters--the "news" organization that knows no terrorists--described the man as a "gunman".
