AP: Frankfurt Airport murderer ID’d as Kosovar Muslim; U.S. Rep calls it terrorist attack

Why do they always have to call it a terrorist attack, which implies a planned, concerted effort to sow terror in a population? Yes, often such attacks are indeed terrorist attacks, but sometimes they are simply, shall we say, kill-the-infidel attacks, that is, murders of non-Muslims because they are non-Muslims, as commanded in the Koran.

James P. writes:

The latest on the Frankfurt Airport attack has the shooter identified as Arif Uka, a name that shows him to be a Kosovar Muslim (Arif means “learned” or “authority” in Arabic). “2 US airmen killed, 2 injured in Germany shooting,” from the Associated Press, March 2:

FRANKFURT, Germany—The U.S. Air Force says two of its airmen have been killed and two wounded in a shooting outside Frankfurt airport….

Fuellhardt said he could not give out any information on the suspect, but authorities in Kosovo said he was a citizen of the tiny Balkan nation.

Kosovo Interior Minister Bajram Rexhepi said in an interview that German police have identified the suspect Arif Uka, a Kosovo citizen from the northern town of Mitrovica.

“This is a devastating and a tragic event,” Rexhepi said. “We are trying to find out was this something that was organized or what was the nature of the attack.” …

While German police had no immediate information on what could be behind the shooting, a member of the U.S. House Homeland Security Committee, Rep. Patrick Meehan, said in Washington that it looked like a terrorist attack.

The chairman of the subcommittee that focuses on terrorism and intelligence added he did not have all the facts about the shooting yet and was still being briefed by his staff.

But German news agency DAPD quoted Hesse’s state interior minister, who had rushed to the scene of the shooting, as saying that there were no indications of a terrorist attack. [JP: Eh, what can you do, sometimes people on a bus just go nuts without explanation.]

This is their way of thanking Americans for bombing Serbia and creating an “independent Kosovo”.

Michael E. writes:

According to the Guardian, the attack on our troops in Germany seems to have been carried out by a Kosovar. He doesn’t seem particularly grateful for the liberation of his country. Two were killed and two wounded.

It is not clear whether the attacker was a Muslim or a Serb. He hails from Mitrovica which is an ethnically divided city in northern Kosovo. If he was a Serb I am sure subsequent news reports will make that clear.

Daniel S. writes:

As reported by Fox News, yet another example of the mainstream nature of Muslim violence in the West, as two American soldiers are murdered in Germany by a Muslim militant from Kosovo (you know, the “secular” and “pro-Western” Muslim-dominated territory that the U.S. and NATO forcibly seceded from Serbia).

I am sure we will hear that this was an “isolated” act carried out by a “disturbed” person, with no mention of his religion to be made, and that any mention of his religion would be “Islamophobia”.

Larry T. writes:

Authorities are not sure why this happened, but they are trying to keep an open mind. Christian Science Monitor reports:

“I am consciously speaking of homicide and not an attack,” Mr. Rhein said at the scene. “But at the moment, nothing can be ruled out.”

Res ipsa loquitur? is that Latin for Sudden Jihad Syndrome?

The perp is supposedly a Kosovar. As you may recall, Kosovo was torn away from Serbia and given to the Islamists by Bill Clinton.

According to ABC News:

A gunman shouting “Allah Akbar” opened fire on a bus carrying U.S. airmen in Frankfurt, Germany, killing two and wounding two others before his gun jammed and he was subdued, officials said.

An ethnic Albanian from Kosovo was taken into custody and the FBI was heading an investigation because U.S. citizens were killed and to determine whether the shooting was an act of terrorism.

However, my latest, exclusive information is that ABC and everyone have this wrong. The killer, who shouted “Allahu Akhbar,” Arabic for “Allah is Great,” was not a Kosovar Muslim, but an Eastern Orthodox Bosnian Serb who had been studying Arabic as part of a multicultural outreach program funded by the U.S. government. When the program was terminated due to funding cuts pushed by Tea Party types in the U.S. Congress, the man became enraged at being denied the chance to learn Arabic and struck out at the first U.S. government personnel he could find.

D. from Seattle replies to LA:

Ha! I’ve dug deeper and I found out that the killer wasn’t really a Bosnian Serb, but a Mossad agent planted 30 years ago, when he was in first grade, tasked with pretending to be a Serb (who was in turn pretending to be an Albanian), with the goal of weakening the West by killing American soldiers and throwing the blame on the Muslims, thereby pulling the U.S. and the West into a confrontation with the Islamic world, for the ultimate benefit of Israel and the neocons and their Jewish banker backers. I’m sure you’ll read about this in detail on Taki, or AltRight, or other similar sources that obsess endlessly about a Jewish conspiracy.
