FBI Admits Texas Synagogue Attack was Terrorism

If you want “transparency,” you won’t get it from the FBI. Those who were held hostage by a “Middle Eastern man” in Saturday’s Texas synagogue hostage situation in Colleyville knew the truth: the situation was a targeted attack on the Jewish community by anti-semite Malik Faisal Akram. But the FBI’s original statement said that it was “not specifically related to the Jewish community.” Serious backlash ensued, so late Sunday the FBI backtracked and admitted it was anti-semitic terrorism.

Terror at the Texas Synagogue

In the original stories that described the Texas synagogue incident, it was thought that the FBI’s Hostage Rescue Unit saved the hostages. Now we learn that the Rabbi threw a chair at the hostage taker and told the others to run. Akram ran after them, but when he saw the armed men outside he stopped and backed up. Then the agents breached the door and gunshots could be heard. The credit for saving the hostages belongs to the Rabbi.

“I made sure that the two gentlemen who were still with me were ready to go – the exit wasn’t too far away – I told them to go, I threw a chair at the gunman, and I headed for the door.”

Rabbi “Charlie” to the Jerusalem Post.

Akram was banned from a Lancaster Court in 2001 for telling a court usher that he wished the man had died on 9/11. He was deemed a “menace,” arrested, fined, and banned from the court, according to the Jerusalem Post.

Back in Blackburn, UK, two teens were detained regarding the terror investigation, after the FBI said there was “no indication” of anyone else being involved.

Akram allegedly flew to the US two weeks ago, lived in homeless shelters and bought a gun on the street.

The FBI also initially said there was ‘no indication’ that anyone else was involved in the siege, but two teenagers were arrested over the incident by anti-terror offic9 updates availableers in Manchester, England, last night.

Akram’s brother Gulbar issued a statement on behalf of the family last night in which he told of their ‘devastation’ and revealed how relatives had been in contact with Malik during his attack at the police’s request but could not convince him to surrender…

He demanded the release of jailed female terrorist Siddiqu – known as Lady Al Qaeda, referring to her as his ‘sister’ but the pair are not related.

When Malik Faisal Akram referred to Siddiqui as his “sister” it was a reference to terrorist connections. The Daily Mail reported that the two are not related.

Even Biden said it was “an act of terror” hours before the FBI admitted it. The backlash against the FBI statement was intense. They are so intent to hide their actions in all investigations that it takes massive backlash to get them to change course.

Even Lindsey Graham hit back at the FBI over the Texas synagogue attack:

The FBI is corrupt and deeply flawed thanks to decades of political influence. What to do about it?
