He must’ve just heard they had a good Shabbos morning kiddush.

The FBI says that the Muslim radical who took four people hostage at a Reform synagogue in Colleyville, Texas yesterday had nothing to do with the Jewish community, evidenced by the fact that he only made demands about freeing “his sister” – a rabid anti-Semite who blamed Israel for her incarceration – but didn’t make demands related to the Jewish community.

Police were called to the synagogue at around 11 am Saturday morning while the temple’s services were being livestreamed on Facebook. Over the course of the incident, the hostage taker could be heard ranting and talking about religion.

All four hostages were eventually rescued and the suspect was shot dead, though it remains unclear whether it was self-inflicted or if a SWAT team member shot him.

The FBI’s assertion that the hostage situation had nothing to do with the Jewish community was met with widespread derision.


  1. Really stupid choice of words. Obviously, he had deliberately chosen a synagogue to state his demand for release of the terrorist and his rants about Jews and Israel. However, what I assume this rocket scientist MEANT to say was that the hostage-taking wasn’t specifically targeted at this specific shul other than the fact that it was the closest (20 miles) to the nearby federal detention facility where the terrorist is being held. You would think with all the “public affairs” people on the FBI payroll, they could find someone a bit more articulate.

  2. They are “pussy-footing” because he’s been described as British. It’s always been British policy “don’t upset the Arabs or Britain loses business”.

  3. Among the responsibilities that will follow the return of Republican control of Congress this year should be a purging of the schmutz left behind in the FBI and DOJ. Trump focused elsewhere, and these thugs went after him, creating one lie after the next. Now its time to rid us of these vermin.

  4. Since James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, etc… the FBI led by Chris Wray, can never be trusted for anything. After the NSA, the FBI is the most corrupt government agency.
    Matt DeSarno is only following the marching orders that Biden/Psaki gave him. They are very upset that this Muslim decided to take Jewish hostages on the eve of Martin Luther King day. This ruined their race hustling plans. It was going to be more of Biden lecturing and shouting at white America how evil and racist they are (except for him and Psaki of course). How WHITE supremacy is THEE greatest threat facing this Nation. How Georgia with its 2 democrat Senators (one black) are suppressing the black vote. Evil white man. Jan 6 Jan 6 Jan 6 Jan 6. Evil white man. Jim Crow bla bla bla bla. Who cares about those pesky Jews.

  5. Well, you need to listen to the ‘experts’ so he probably had no anti-Semitic intent.
    If you say he did then it’s a Chillul Hashem.
    And of course, remember the mask+booster (4 and 5), otherwise, it’ll be a Chillul Hashem to these ‘experts’.
    Especially the booster that comes out in a couple of months to protect from Omicron after 90% of the world will have already had it.

  6. I’m no fan of the FBI, especially after they recently brutally raided the home and young family of a school mom who protested CRT in school board meetings, but I think this story is nonsense. Here is exactly what the FBI said:

    “The Texas synagogue hostage taker’s demands were not specifically related to the Jewish community.” (

    Of course he was an anti semite, and of course his choice of hostages affected the Jewish community. But his “demands”, which were the freeing of an incarcerated Muslim terrorist, were not at all related to the Jewish community. She’s also an anti semite, but she’s in jail for crimes against soldiers in Afghanistan, not Jews.

    If we want to reform or replace the FBI, which we should, let’s fight about viable issues, not this nonsense.

  7. They got it spot on. A message from Hashem. This is not anti semitic, its anti reform who have nothing to do with Jews except for the name of their temple. Aside from that its not Jewish!

  8. video looks taken out of context, video posted is to short to really hear what he is saying
    but he does say “singularly focused on one issue and that is not the Jewish people”
