"Allah gives permission in the Quran for the followers of Allah to attack those who have raged war against them, with the expectation of eternal paradise in case of martyrdom and/or living one's life in obedience of all of Allah's commandments found throughout the Quran's 114 chapters,"
"The U.S. government is responsible for the deaths of and the torture of countless followers of Allah, my brothers and sisters. My attack on Americans at UNC-CH on March 3rd was in retaliation for similar attacks orchestrated by the U.S. government on my fellow followers of Allah in Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine, Saudi Arabia and other Islamic territories. I did not act out of hatred for Americans, but out of love for Allah instead."This all came from a letter that Taheri-azar wrote to a television reporter and anchor at WTVD-TV, a nearby station to the city where the crimes were committed. Apparently he wants everyone to know that under the guise of his religion, he's innocent. By trying to kill innocent citizens, he's expressing his opinions of the US government.
This terrorist attack occurred when he recently drove his SUV into a group of people on the campus of the University of North Carolina. He's now being charged on nine counts of attempted murder and assault. He should be charged with carrying out a failed terrorist attack but no,
"...officials were reticent to call the attack terrorism."This man tried to kill innocent American citizens, the same efforts made by Bin Laden. I'm having serious trouble delineating the two.
