Brother of Slain Muslim Girl in NC Wants Atheist Killer Charged With ‘Terrorism’

A memorial for the slain Muslims

Early this year an atheist was charged with murdering three Muslims over a parking dispute at their North Carolina apartment building. Now the brother of one of the slain Muslims wants the alleged killer charged with “terrorism.”

Since a militant atheist allegedly murdered his younger sister, Deah, Farris Barakat is demanding that authorities charge the killer with “terrorism.”

“I want to know why this guy can express such hostile views toward religion, be a hateful person, then walk into my brother’s apartment and execute him and shoot these two women who are Muslims,” Barakat said. “How is that not a terrorist attack?”…

    I would tell him that this attack has nothing to do with Atheism.

  • Clausewitz

    Really?????????????? This is how much we care.

  • One what grounds is that terrorism?

    Cold-blooded killing, sure, but terrorism?

    • Justin St.Denis

      These “victims” were also associated with a quite notorious mosque, I read somewhere. That having been said, there is nothing to indicate their religion had anything to do with the motivation of their killer. It seems that the three DID provoke this dispute over parking by routinely abusing other people’s rights for their own convenience. It’s a muslim behaviour thing and not uncommon. NEVER give a muslim even a millimetre, for they will try to extract a mile. Don’t budge when it comes to muslims.

      • Perhaps they did but one cannot just shoot people which is wrong -in principle.

        • Drunk_by_Noon

          As a general rule of thumb.

          • I think the direction this case might take is a cross between trying this guy as a crazy or catering to the Islamist crowd.

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            And I hate both options.

            His atheism likely drove him to do this, that I do believe. Strident atheists are only tolerant of other atheists.
            I don’t want anything that paints Islam in a sympathetic light, as he would likely have killed those people even if they were Mormons.

          • What can the popular press do? This man was an atheist. His atheism will have to be ignored and the Islam victim card played.

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            Had he not been active on Social media, they would be making him a Christian, like they tried to do with Timothy McVeigh, who WAS not, even by his own admission, a Christian.

          • He’s a tubby white guy. Close enough.

        • Justin St.Denis

          Oh, I agree entirely. Shooting people is not recommended. That having been said, should one perchance shoot a person, and that person happens to be muslim, I think it is something of a leap to conclude one is motivated by hatred or terrorism. One can have other motivations for shooting a person. I don’t mean to split hairs, but I think person-shooters have more options to check than just a) hatred, or b) terrorism. I think person-shooters have could have any of a raft of reasons to undertake shooting at persons or particular persons. I’ve seen a LOT of movies… 😉

          • Indeed.

            If this guy had shot Joe Q. Anybody, there would be far less outcry.

      • Xavier

        No reason to kill. A simple firebombing of the Moslem’s car would have sufficed.

        • Justin St.Denis

          You are, of course, completely correct. but you already knew that! 😉

  • bobo

    Yes, nothing to do with atheist.

  • eMan14

    If I do recall, this guy didn’t entirely despise Muslims overall. He was not against the building of a Mosque in New York. He didn’t particularly like any religion. Being an atheist will do that. And he was a left wing wingnut.
    A terrorist.. I think not. The dispute that lead to the killings was not unlike road rage. And goodness knows Muslims can incite rage.

    • Frau Katze

      They’re already going to go for the death penalty. What more can be asked?

      Saying he was “terrorist” would give them “victim points.”

      • eMan14

        Exactly. Professional victims they are.

  • Gary

    Obama says that these killings are a random act of violent where Folks get killed. lets face it, for 14 years now Muslims and CAIR have prayed for their 9/11 to justify more Jihad and spew hate to recruit terrorists from the mosques.
    All that Mr.Hooper from CAIR has come up with is several bogus mosque vandalism dome by the Imams or other muslims along with the two Sikh’s shot that Hooper said were mistaken for muslims .

    He is only guilty of operating an unlicensed pest control business.

    Well I guess this does away with the myth that all wars are started by Religion. Turns out all wars are started by and fought with Humans of any stripe.

  • Hard Little Machine

    As opposed to already having charged the killer with 3 counts of 1st degree murder with special circumstances? He’s already facing 3 death sentences.

    It’s only terrorism if a side effect is to stop OTHER people from doing something or living somewhere. Have any other car owners in that development stopped parking their cars?
