Texas synagogue hostage-taker identified by FBI as British nationalThe FBI has identified the man killed after taking four people hostage inside a North Texas synagogue Saturday as 44-year-old Malik Faisal Akram. Good thing the FBI putting all resources into tracking parents who show up at school board meetings. 🐀 Good riddance From MC Donald's attendant to professional trader💪💵! 2 years ago it took me 1 year to win and save what I have today in 1 month of work and from the comfort of my home Evelynclark777 help me achieve that.

Apparently, there weren't enough violent whackos in Texas, and they had to import one from the UK. Boris must be so proud, the UK finally has an export in demand. Brexit, finally a success. [Before you have a kitten over the surrealistic, sardonic nature of this post, think.] multiculturalism where Muslims travel from one nation to another to try to kill Jews

FBI storms Texas synagogue to release hostages, gunman deadAn FBI Hostage Rescue Team stormed a synagogue in Colleyville , Texas on Saturday night to free three remaining hostages of a gunman who had disrupted a religious service and began a standoff with police more than 10 hours earlier. Cair spews poisonous victimhood & leaders like Ilhan RashidaTlaib support the ideology & they make Muslim Americans think America, & the West is their enemy. ZahraBilloo’s open call for Jihad against Jews was a precursor to attack on our Jewish family. Texas texashostage

Mental Illness that's what it always is when anybody except a Police Officer kills someone! So I wonder. Mental Illness advocates what is truth here? Is Mental Illness reason being used to hide behind the real reason for killings? sloppyjoe VP so quiet? I guess not White Supremacist so not important or Liberal news worthy.

Turns out the suspect was an F.B.I informant. Islamic extremist terorrist you mean I was thinking Amish the way CNN first described the incident How tf did someone who isn’t a us citizen get a gun dude wtf Let the lies begin. No, he was a Muslim with a British passport

FBI identifies British national as suspect who took hostages at Colleyville, Texas, synagogueRabbi Charlie Cytron-Walker of Congregation Beth Israel in Colleyville posted on Facebook on Sunday that he is 'grateful that we made it out.' Why are you afraid to say his name? This is inconvenient for the narrative and will disappear directly Muslim British national.

Tears grips my heart knowing how hard I’ve struggled to find a legit trader.I never wanted to do this but I’ll be guilty if I don’t share this good news to people Edwardswrightq is the best trader so far Thanks for helping me and i will forever be grateful to you. British citizen. 🤦‍♀️ Another conspiracy to divert the American people from the real issues they are facing. Load of bullshit right from the top.

This is Malik This shit is crazy, he’s from UK and have acces to weapons like its candy Apparently, a lot of simpletons in the US think you can't be a British citizen unless you're pasty white and your name is John Smith or something. If he is a British citizen, he will be referred to as such regardless of his ancestry. He's Britian's problem, not Pakistan's.

Malik Faisal Akfram, that classic British name! Religion of peace strikes again So this shit is back on the agenda now Covid doesn’t bother us no more, how predictable, guess all the terrorists were staying indoors masked up and now think it’s safe to come out and kill again 🤦🏻‍♀️🤡🤡

Muslims aint apart of Britain I’m afraid We have a real problem with british people They have a culture of violence that is bleeding into our peaceful American society The British are so violent he's a terrorist. i didn't realize terrorists went through proper channels to get their guns. such law abiding citizens 🤮

Twitter Headline: FBI identifies Texas synagogue hostage suspect as UK citizen FBI Dallas field office on Sunday identified the gunman who took four people hostage at a Dallas-area synagogue as a UK citizen I think they secretly meant 'Holy shit everyone, it wasn't an American!' Just glad others were not hurt.

Well these are the folks that the give green cards to who have these type of agendas. How did the not see him coming 😳, just saying some of these folks should be seen miles away. In case you were wondering British Citizen you said The never call him terrorist. GUNMAN 😂😂😂

FBI assisting in hostage situation at Texas synagoguePolice say FBI negotiators have contact with someone in the building and have evacuated the area.

“British Citizen” British Citizen Malik Faisal Akram is a man of Pakistani origin. Osama Bin Laden was found hiding in garrison city of Abbottabad, Pakistan before he was killed by seal team six.. This should make it clear as to which is the country that sponsors and breeds terrorism!!! Malik Faisal Akram -definately sounds like A British name. Anyone can get British citizenship these days, especially if you arrive on a rubber boat.

England and the UK is a Muslim motherland. Too much immigration and they do not integrate unless they are the super rich who attend Ascot British……. That old saying play stupid games and you win stupid prizes comes to mind. Glad everyone is safe and he was eliminated, the people who survived can eventually sleep at night knowing he is gone.

I had 3 SEVERELYanti-Semitic confrontations in the 1st week Trump came into office. I stopped swearing the day Biden came into office but this shit has GOT to stop! How the hell did he get a visa? People with minor criminal records can’t get a visa to travel to Vegas and you lot allow a convicted criminal who served 10 years in prison for terror related matters

He's a refugee from a Muslim country who hates Jews. Breeding hate in England

Biden confirmed it was for release of terorist Aafia Siddiqui,a Pakistani 'Lady Al-Qaeda'. Masood Azhar,Omar Sheik& Mushtaq Ahmad terorists were released in lieu of the passengers of the Indian hijacked aircraft(5 Pakistani hijackers& ISI). SanctionPakistan Pakistanterrorhub 'Malik Faisal Akram' 'Hostages at synagogue' Well, aint hard to see this story and motivation play out.

He's an islamist who managed to get the British citizenship due to liberalism. Hahaha CNN at it again, “deceased suspect” no you can refer to him as what he is a Islamic Muslim So reports said all hostages were let go without injuries and lowlife was shot and pronounced at scene Of course it was the Bri'ish

typical 'british' citizen 19 times MORE CASES of myocarditis in children since the ‘vaccine’ rollout. And the peer reviewed study suddenly vanished? UK is fast emerging as Pakistan's competitor for exporting terrorists. It's nurturing terrorists for decades in the garb of freedom fighters is finally bearing fruit. Long live the Caliphate of Englandisthan. Perhaps Prince Andrew should be made the Caliph.

Anyone got this British man's picture?

UK is trying to colonise again aye, using islamic p.s.ies as wmd 🤣🤣 Did he shoot himself? 😑😑😑 Good grief, “British”? Media has no backbone. Call a spade a spade Why aren’t you posting his picture? Adios Asshole Got a Muslim holding hostages in a religious facility, a black guy pushing an Asian woman in front of a train, and CNN still glossing over anything that doesn't involve a white guy even when it's not racist which is 99% of the time. I remember when I was 16 and delusional.

Muslim British people are dangerous Britain is not sending their best.

The FBI along with CNN can't seem to figure out a motive for a Pakistani man targeting Jews. The race for most stupid institution is a photo finish. He doesn't sound British to me Fakenews Looks like the Religion of Peace took an L. Cant try that shit in Texas, boi!! Merica FBIHRT Oh nooooo white supremacy!

Him being British was the last thing I expected. Wow 🇬🇧 oh no he doen't sound super white Prayer to still & calm natural disasters. Children, People & spirits of fire, earth or land, air & water. Spiritus mundis, Lord Almighty & world ancestors. ODUDURO OTUTU KOKORO;Be still & calm. May natural disasters cease. As above so below. Smib.

As we are all thankful & prayerful that the kidnapping victims are safe, we have to be mindful that our places of worship are not as safe as we believe them to be. Our places of refuge are more often targeted by thieves, but we now have to prepare our congregations for madmen.

Ah. How British that name is 1 of 2. His nationality doesn't enter into it one way or another. It's his twisted, savage religion. Atheists, Buddhists, Christians, Jews, etc., don't go around offing people in the names of their gods. There's only 1 cult that seems to do it. noorganizedreligion I thought we were done with publicizing the bad guy? Can we focus on the brave people that survived and the heroism of the rescue? shiftingthefocus dontmakehimfamous

I'm very thankful all the hostages made it out alive I hope they can one day put this situation behind them and they can live normal lives. His name gives it away. How many English men by the name Malik? So all you anti-Brits are free to boycott Downton Abbey. So he came into USA on a green card? Who was he visiting, who gave him the vehicle, who sold him the weapons, there is more to this and more people are definitely involved

Yes, British. He was named after the famous 16th century king William Henry George Malik the 4th. He succeeded Henry the 8th in case you all don’t know your history. His actions are shameful.

“British” 🤡🌎 Before the attack, his life had been “mostly peaceful” And he went all the way there just to get himself shot? Makes an awful lot of sense. I hope the hostages are all well. CNN is disappointed that the suspect wasn't a white person. Of course a British citizen, what else... So not a crazy Trump supporter? Guessing brianstelter will spend the next 537737733 of his shows talking about the threat of Muslim extremists, right? Oh that’s right, they only have one story to tell and this doesn’t fit the mold. It will be forgotten by Monday…

Acosta Also CNN- aaaaaaaand next story cause this one doesn’t fit our agenda. Everyone wants to focus on nationality and not talking about the big issue, how did and someone from another country get a gun, wait it's a republican state he probably just had to ask Oh a Muslim then . Another Biden mistake allowing him to enter the U.S across the southern OPEN border.

Let me complete the sentence ‘44-year-old “Pakistani origin” British citizen Malik Faisal Akram’ Not a Brit with a name like that... Acosta Why come to America to do this if his intent were to die? 🤦‍♀️ This is just the start, its a trial run,yes white people will do this too but muslims have a long term plan wait and see

The racism in this thread is....sadly unsurprising. Will the media ever report exactly how this AH was killed ? Hmmm…was he a Christian? A Jew? 🤔 Lol “British” is the new “white.” Brexit has really made brits go nuts. What will happen is an announcement will be made saying he was a person of interest and on the uk services watch list same old story. Wouldn’t surprise me if had been recently released from prison as well.

There’s your domestic terrorist Shocking ….waiting for IlhanMN and AOC to condemn the attack. Pakistani-british citizen, brother of a terrorist. If he was white Biden would be denouncing racism but it's a terrorist so he needs to gather more facts before addressing it. 🤦🏽 For all those who are new to this working from home Bitcoin trading options Here's a little tip: Get a trusted Bitcoin expert and stick to her Diana_Massangi Invest and play at similar times each day.

reporters Sunday authorities"just don't have enough facts" to speculate why a man targeted a Colleyville, Texas synagogue, taking four hostages Saturday, calling the standoff"an act of terror.""I don't-- we don't have I don't think there is sufficient information to know about why he targeted that synagogue, why he insisted on the release of someone who's been in prison for over 10 years, why he was engaged, why he was using an anti-Semitic and anti-Israeli comments," Biden told reporters.FBI Dallas Special Agent in Charge Matthew DeSarno praised the work of the FBI and local negotiators, who he said"likely saved the lives of the subjects just through their engagement."It's very likely this situation would have ended very badly early on in the day had we not had professional, consistent negotiation with the subject," DeSarno added.Two law enforcement officials told CNN earlier Saturday that investigators believe the hostage taker may have been motivated by a desire to release Aafia Siddiqui, who is serving an 86-year sentence at a facility in Texas. She was convicted in 2010 on seven charges, including attempted murder and armed assault on US officers in Afghanistan."We do believe from our engaging with this subject that he was singularly focused on one issue, and it was not specifically related to the Jewish community, but we'll continue to work to find motive," DeSarno said. Massive law enforcement operationAssets including local, state and federal SWAT teams were brought in to assist with the situation, as well as the FBI's hostage rescue team, which flew to Texas from Quantico, Virginia, Miller said in the news conference.Congregation member Stacey Silverman described watching the livestream for more than an hour, listening to the suspect ranting, sometimes switching between saying"I'm not a criminal" to being apologetic about the situation. The suspect was vacillating between different languages and"screaming hysterically," she said."At any moment, I thought there was going to be a gunshot," Silverman said, adding that the suspect claimed to have a bomb. Authorities evacuated residents living near the synagogue as a precaution as teams negotiated with the suspect throughout the day, Miller said. Those residents were allowed to return to their homes early Sunday, the Colleyville Police Department tweeted, but it warned that FBI bomb techs were disposing of some ordnances at the synagogue."There may be some loud noises" but"there is no need for concern," police said.Suspect apparently wanted Siddiqui releasedOfficials said it's believed the suspect wanted Siddiqui released, based on both discussions with the suspect and audio heard on the synagogue's livestream.The attorney who represents Siddiqui said Saturday"she has absolutely no involvement with" the taking of hostages at the synagogue and said the perpetrator is not Siddiqui's brother."She does not want any violence perpetrated against any human being, especially in her name," Marwa Elbially told CNN by phone."It obviously has nothing to do with Dr. Siddiqui or her family.""Whoever the assailant is, we want him to know that his actions are condemned by Dr. Aafia and her family," Elbially said.At the request of the hostage taker, the rabbi of the congregation who was being held hostage called a well known rabbi in New York City, according to two officials briefed on investigation.The FBI interviewed the New York City-based rabbi who spoke to the hostage taker earlier Saturday. The hostage taker, who has no connection with the rabbi, told her that Siddiqi was framed and he wants her released, the officials said.The Congregation Beth Israel in Colleyville, Texas.Congregation Beth Israel is affiliated with the Union for Reform Judaism, whose website indicates the congregation serves 157 membership families. The synagogue, established in 1999 with 25 membership families, was the first Jewish congregation in Northeast Tarrant County, according to CBI's website. The CBI community officially opened the doors to its own new building in 2005.CBI holds Sabbath morning services every Saturday, and members and non-members alike are welcome to watch from home on the livestream, a practice many synagogues have adopted due to the Covid-19 pandemic.Who is Aafia Siddiqui?In 2010, Siddiqui was sentenced to 86 years in prison by a New York federal judge following a 14-day trial. A jury found her guilty of the attempted murder of US nationals and government employees, as well as assault against US officers and employees.Siddiqui -- a Pakistani scientist who graduated from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and obtained a doctorate from Brandeis University -- was taken into custody for questioning by the Afghan National Police in 2008, who said they found handwritten notes referring to potential targets of a"mass casualty attack," according to a federal indictment. When a group of Americans attempted to speak to her, prosecutors said she was able to grab a US soldier's rifle and open fire on the interrogation team, although no one was hit by the gunfire.Sister of 'Lady al Qaeda': 'We want no violence in Aafia's name'At sentencing, the judge found that a terrorism enhancement applied to her crimes, citing statements she had made that the judge concluded demonstrated her actions and intent to retaliate against the US government, including"I hate Americans" and"Death to America."Siddiqui's defense argued she was incompetent to stand trial. But Siddiqui clashed repeatedly with her lawyers, telling the judge at sentencing,"If anybody thinks that it is my paranoia or whatever, I'm not paranoid. I'm not mentally sick. I do not agree with that." She also stated her belief that Israel"masterminded 9/11."Her conviction has been the subject of regular protests in the US and overseas. Frequent demonstrations have been organized by the Aafia Foundation, a group named for her. That group has claimed that she was assaulted in prison last year. Her family has said in interviews with CNN that she is not a terrorist. During a deadly hostage crisis in Algeria in 2013, a spokesperson for a militant group offered to release hostages if Siddiqui was released from US prison, along with Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman, the mastermind of the 1993 World Trade Center attack, who has since died in prison.Siddiqui is being held in a medical facility that's part of a federal prison in Fort Worth, with a release date set for 60 years from now.CNN's Shimon Prokupecz, Josh Campbell, Evan Perez, Ed Lavandera, Ashley Killough, Melissa Alonso, Radina Gigova and Sharon Braithwaite contributed to this report.
