Jew-hatred and Islamism at the heart of Texas terror
Aafia Siddiqui is actually a celebrity in Pakistan and among some Muslim groups across the West. She is the icon of Islamists who are steeped in Jew hatred and mostly originate in Pakistan and other South Asian countries where "son of a Jew" is a common slur.
Since her capture and conviction,
she has been a symbol and rallying cry to extremist Muslims worldwide, many of
whom echo the delusional anti-Semitic theories she promoted. No wonder the
Pakistani Briton who took hostages to free Siddiqui chose to target a synagogue
and not any ordinary meeting centre.
