Or as his relatives posted, “martyred“…after he tried to grab an officers gun in attempt to escape.
HARLAN – A man shot and killed during a confrontation with authorities Thursday night in Harlan County was previously accused of concealing explosives in trail cameras and putting them in the woods.
Mark Sawaf, 39, of Harlan had been indicted by a federal grand jury in July and was scheduled to go to trial on Sept. 13, according to court documents. He was ordered to remain in custody until trial and was indicted on eight charges, including owning and making unregistered destructive devices.
Was he really a liberal and an atheist? Not according to Sawaf’s father and other relatives who considered him a Muslim, via Shoebat.com: Muslim Doctor In The United States Designs Very Sophisticated IED Explosives And Places Them Under The Ground In Kentucky To Slaughter Random Americans.
Little scant coverage has been given to the story of doctor Mark Samir Sawaf. He was a LPCC Psychotherapist in Kentucky USA. This was his public image. His private life was more sinister than you can imagine. What the media is not telling you about this case was that Sawaf was a Muslim and a terrorist before he was gunned down in Kentucky for an alleged crime. Samir Sawaf set up IED’s and pipe bombs in Kentucky, USA. While his story gained local coverage in Kentucky, the reason is that the media forgot to tell the public that the family stems from Karbala, Iraq, the land of terrorism and IEDs, the Sawafs were welcomed to the land of ‘the candy shop’: USA.
It even gets more puzzling for westerners who are not able to sift things Muslim. The Sawafs are Shiites and these even hate ISIS. But even hating ISIS and hating Sunni terrorists does not immune a Muslim from being a lone-wolf. It matters nothing even if they drink or sleep around. Samir Sawaf had set up several explosives, not only in cameras, but also hidden PVC pipe bombs hidden and rigged with trip wires… Some were designed so they would explode when someone placed batteries inside; others were booby trapped with a trip wire leading to the camera. Sawaf booby trapped cameras like this one so they would explode when you put batteries in.
His actions were not classified as ‘terrorist’ since there was no evidence he belonged to ISIS or was ‘radicalized’ as they say. Sawaf after all was Shiite, not Sunni. Sawaf was arrested in June, the result of a joint investigation by federal and local law enforcement. He then tricked law enforcement to show them where he had set up his IEDs. They never recovered all of the IEDs and ATF found some of what he hid in the woods and sounded the alarms and issued a massive warnings to the public. Why they sent the warnings was simple; while on that trip back to Harlan County where police were hoping he would reveal the locations of any unexploded traps, he tried to grab an officer’s weapon in an attempt to escape and was ‘martyred’ in August.
Why do I say ‘martyred’? The media doesn’t tell you that his relatives back in Iraq say so. One family condolences to his father says:
“may Allah reside him with all the martyrs in heaven and increase your faith”.
He was to many in his family a ‘martyr’ not a criminal. His father, also a medical doctor, Ali Sawaf on September 3rd posted on his timeline in memory (in English of course) with his son’s photo and a rose that says (in Arabic of course): “O Allah. Islam is my religion”:
Ali Sawaf told WKYT that he didn’t see what the big deal was about his son planting bombs in the first place…
