The Federal Bureau of Investigation recently changed their tune regarding the Texas synagogue hostage situation after trying to pass the incident off as not related to anti-Semitism last weekend.
The FBI initially claimed that the suspect wasn’t targeting the Jewish community when he stormed into the Congregation Beth Israel on a Saturday, taking a Rabbi and three attendants hostage while demanding the release of convicted terrorist anti-Semite Dr. Aafia Siddiqui.
The hostage-taker interrupted a shabbat service, and demanded the release of the convicted al-Qaeda operative who attempted to kill U.S. military officers while in custody in Afghanistan.
On Saturday, FBI Special Agent Matt DeSarno said that they believed the suspect’s actions were “not specifically related to the Jewish community” and added that the Bureau would continue “to work to find motive.” He said conclusively that the incident had reached resolution because “the hostage taker is deceased.”
Liberal media outlets quickly parroted DeSarno’s claim that the violent, racist dogma of Islam had nothing to do with the motivation behind the attack, a claim that many pointed out was not believable.
Synagogue a totally random target?
Nobody believes this. Nobody. https://t.co/3BSnH8KWqs

However, after receiving a fair brow-beating by the public for their outlandish and clearly politicized statement, the FBI corrected their view of the situation on Sunday.
The FBI’s most recent statement on the matter reads: “This is a terrorism-related matter, in which the Jewish community was targeted, and is being investigated by the Joint Terrorism Task Force.” They add that “We never lose sight of the threat extremists pose to the Jewish community and to other religious, racial, and ethnic groups.”

It’s terrifying that our government’s highest investigatory body dropped the ball so badly in this situation. Clearly the Kool-Aid being served at the FBI was concocted by the radical Left, who inexplicably defends every action of Islamists who are diametrically opposed to all Progressive values. Furthermore, it’s the same Left that seeks out racial injustice in every small facet of life right down to calling hair compliments ‘micro-aggressions’ who continues to ignore the real lingering racism of anti-Semitism that still ranks as more frequent and more dangerous than racially motivated hate crimes against Blacks year after year.
