Hostage situation at Texas synagogue perpetrated by UK Muslim

There was a hostage crisis at a synagogue in Colleyville, Texas a few days ago, where a British-Pakistani Muslim broke in demanding the release of Aafia Siddiqui, which was thankfully defeated with the criminal gunned dead. Here's some details:
A rabbi who was among four Jewish congregants taken captive at a Dallas-area synagogue said on Monday that he and others managed to escape after he threw a chair at the hostage-taker and then rushed for an exit door.

The ten-hour siege Saturday at the Congregation Beth Israel synagogue in Colleyville, west of Dallas, Texas, ended in gunfire with all four hostages released and the suspect dead. It is not clear whether the gunman took his own life or was killed by members of an FBI hostage rescue team.

The suspect, identified by the FBI as a British citizen, knocked on the synagogue's door during Sabbath prayers and was invited in and offered tea, Rabbi Charlie Cytron Walker, who was among those taken captive, told CBS.

Walker then returned to prayer, after which he said he "heard a click - and it could have been anything - but it turned out it was his gun."

One hostage was released unharmed after six hours of tense negotiations conducted with help from the family of the suspect, 44-year-old Malik Faisal Akram.
The creep's brother, however, wants everyone to believe he had "mental illness" in another classic case of taqqiya. And the FBI did not improve matters with the way they went about this:
The gunman who held worshipers hostage at Congregation Beth Israel in Colleyville, Texas, was “not specifically” targeting the Jewish community, the Special Agent in charge of FBI Dallas claimed shortly after the attack, prompting incredulity from critics in light of “Lady Al-Qaeda’s” vociferous antisemitic rhetoric.

“We do believe from our engagement with this subject that he was singularly focused on one issue, and it was not specifically related to the Jewish community,” Special Agent Matthew Desarno said of the now-deceased suspect.

“But we are continuing to work to find [the] motive,” he added.
I don't think so. They're trying to avoid the harder hitting issues, as will soon be noted. Before that:
The suspect, since identified as UK citizen Malik Faisal Akram (pictured, top), was heard at the synagogue on Facebook live demanding the release of Aafia Siddiqui, a Pakistani national who is serving an 86-year sentence for the attempted killing of U.S. military personnel. Siddiqui is a raving antisemite, according to the Jerusalem Post, and she blamed the Jews for 9/11.
What she did was very serious too. Now, here's more about the reaction to the FBI representative's pathetic statements:
The head of the movement for Reform Judaism, Rabbi Rick Jacobs, also slammed the FBI’s characterization of the event as random, saying that Desarno’s comments “conveys a completely wrong sense of what yesterday was all about.”

“There’s no doubt that the underlying whole premise of yesterday was antisemitism,” Jacobs told MSNBC.

“The hostage-taker didn’t go to McDonald’s, didn’t go to some random place, and that is part of the story of antisemitism, to single Jews out.”
Even so, they're still avoiding whether Islam played a part in this. If Jacobs is avoiding it, he's just as guilty.

Akram's brother, despite the apologia with mentalism, revealed he had a criminal record:
Gulbar Akram, the brother of terrorist Malik Faisal Akram, who took four hostages at the Congregation Beth Israel synagogue in Colleyville, Texas on Saturday, has revealed that his brother had a criminal record in comments to UK media, raising questions about how he was allowed into the United States.

According to Inzamam Rashid, North of England correspondent [f]or Sky News, Gulbar Akram said of his brother: “He’s known to police. Got a criminal record. How was he allowed to get a visa and acquire a gun?”

Malik Faisal Akram, formerly of the Blackburn area of Lancashire, is reported to have travelled to the U.S. around two weeks ago into New York’s JFK International Airport before travelling to Texas.
The reason he was able get in so easily, is the same reason so many illegal immigrants have been able to, as a result of Joe Biden's disastrous policies. Those US Jews who voted Democrat will have to come to terms with how they enabled this.

The investigation has also led to the arrest of 2 teenagers in the UK:
The investigation into a hostage attack on a synagogue in Texas has stretched to the United Kingdom, with police in Manchester announcing they had arrested two teenagers in relation to the incident.

Authorities have identified the hostage-taker as 44-year-old British national, Malik Faisal Akram, who was killed Saturday night local time after the last hostages ran out of Congregation Beth Israel after a 10-hour stand-off, which ended with an FBI SWAT team rushing into the building and the captor's death.

The FBI said there was no early indication that anyone else was involved but had not provided a possible motive.

However, the Greater Manchester Police released a statement on Twitter, saying that counterterrorism officers had made the arrests in South Manchester but did not say whether the pair faced any charges.
If they have any guilt in this affair, yet don't face charges, that'll say all you need to know about UK authorities' conduct just as much as the French judicial system at this point.
