‘Soldier of Islam’ found guilty in ’06 Seattle Jewish center jihad

More homegrown Islamic jihad many Americans may have never heard of thanks to a dumbed down, complicit ‘system’.

UpdateHaq receives life sentence for Jewish Federation shooting

By Jennifer Sullivan at the Dallas Morning News:

SEATTLE – A King County jury found a 34-year-old Muslim man guilty of charges including aggravated first-degree murder Tuesday in the 2006 shootings at the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle.

In addition to the murder verdict, which carries an automatic life sentence, jurors found Naveed Haq guilty of five counts of attempted first-degree murder, one count of unlawful imprisonment and one count of malicious harassment, the state’s hate-crime law.

Haq opened fire in the federation offices on July 28, 2006, killing employee Pamela Waechter, 58, and wounding five others.

Several of the victims who were in the courtroom Tuesday hugged tearfully as the verdicts were read.

Haq’s first trial ended in a mistrial in June 2008, when jurors announced after nearly two weeks of deliberations that they were deadlocked on all but one of the 15 criminal counts. Prosecutors immediately announced they would retry him, and they reduced the number of charges to simplify deliberations for the next jury.

Prosecutors agreed that Haq has a mental illness but contended that he was sane when he entered the federation and opened fire.

“He wanted to kill these women,” senior deputy prosecutor Erin Ehlert told jurors in her closing argument Thursday.

Prosecutors also introduced as evidence audio recordings from 10 phone calls that Haq placed to his family after his arrest. In the calls, recorded by the King County Jail, Haq told his mother he was “a soldier of Islam.”

The recordings were not introduced at Haq’s first trial.

Huh? Why was that evidence not introduced at the first trial?

Witnesses testified that Haq, who is of Pakistani heritage, railed against Jews and U.S.-Israeli policies as he opened fire at the federation.

Haq surrendered after talking with a 911 dispatcher.

On the 911 tape, Haq said he was tired of the world ignoring the Muslim point of view.

“I don’t care if I die,” Haq told the dispatcher. “This is just to make a point.”
