Another lone wolf Muslim attack on uniformed personnel -- this time in New York City

Following the call of ISIS for Muslims to attack soldiers and police, yet again a weaponized Muslim has launched a vicious, unprovoked attack. Two attacks in Canada this week, and now one in New York City.  CNN describes the events:

A man charged at four New York police officers with a metal hatchet Thursday, hitting two of them at a time of high alert for authorities concerned they might be targeted in the United States and Canada.

The suspect was hiding behind a bus shelter as if he was waiting to attack the officers, according to a law enforcement official, who said it almost appeared as if he was stalking them. The officers were posing for a photo when the man pounced, police Commissioner Bill Bratton said.

He struck one officer in the right arm and another in the head, according to the commissioner. The two officers who weren't hit then shot at and killed the attacker.

The law enforcement official identified the suspect as Zale H. Thompson, who had a criminal record in California and had been discharged from the Navy for misconduct, according to the source.

The police officer who was struck in the head remains in critical but stable condition. The other officer, who is 24, was struck in the arm and was expected to be released soon.

A 29-year-old bystander who was struck by a bullet in the lower back was also taken to a hospital. Her condition was not known.

Officially, this is not being called a terror attack, but:

 On a Facebook page bearing Thompson's name, a warrior masked in a head and face scarf and armed with spear, sword and rifle gazes out at the beholder. The vintage black and white photo is the profile picture of the user, who lives in Queens.

A Quran quote in classic Arabic calligraphy mentioning judgment against those who have wandered astray serves as the page's banner.

Some of the user's Facebook friends posted articles about Thompson's attack and death, referring to him by name and linking back to the Facebook page.

Daniel Greenfield adds:

Commenting on a Caliphate Youtube video titled, “UPRISE OF THE KHILAFAH WORLD WIDE”, Zale Thompson (Muslim name unknown) responded to a man complaining about the insanity of ISIS beheadings and general bloodshed.

“Zale Thompson Sep 13, 2014

If you’re looking for “perfect” muslims who never make any mistakes in their Jihad, then you will be looking in vain! If the Zionists and the Crusaders had never invaded and colonized the Islamic lands after WW1, then there would be no need for Jihad! Which is better, to sit around and do nothing, or to Jihad fisabeelallah!”

That was two days after the most recent anniversary of September. The Arabic word means “In the Cause of Allah”.

Zale’s YouTube playlist was full of racist Malcolm X videos and in another YouTube comment he made racist remarks about white people, writing that white people had invaded the rest of the world.
