Texas Synagogue Terrorist’s Brother Says He ‘Was Suffering from Mental Health Issues’

So now Islamist Terrorism is a Mental Health Issue? Well, I think not. I believe that this man knew exactly what he was doing coming to a Synagogue on Shabbat to take hostages.

COLLEYVILLE, TEXAS - JANUARY 16: Law enforcement vehicles sit in front of the Congregation Beth Israel synagogue on January 16, 2022 in Colleyville, Texas. All four people who were held hostage at the Congregation Beth Israel synagogue have been safely released after more than 10 hours of being held captive …

The brother of 44-year-old Malik Faisal Akram, the British national who was shot dead after taking four people hostage at a Texas synagogue, says his brother suffered from “mental health issues.”

In a statement shortly after learning news of his brother’s death at the hands of the FBI’s elite Hostage Rescue Team, Gulbar Akram expressed deep sorrow over the events that transpired at Beth Israel synagogue on Saturday.

“It is with great sadness I will confirm my brother Faisal passed away in Texas, USA, this morning,” said Gulbar. “We are absolutely devastated as a family. We can’t say much now as there is an ongoing FBI investigation.”

Malik allegedly took hostages to secure the release of convicted Pakistani terrorist Aafia Siddiqu, a.k.a. Lady al-Qaeda. Gulbar emphasized that his family does not in any way condone violence and expressed sympathy for the victims.

“We would like to say that we as a family do not condone any of his actions and would like to sincerely apologize wholeheartedly to all the victims involved in the unfortunate incident,” he said.

Gulbar added that his brother “was suffering from mental health issues” and did not believe he would have harmed the hostages, admitting that there was nothing his family could say or do to make him surrender.

“Sitting in the incident room all last night at Greenbank until the early hours liaising with Faisal, the negotiators, FBI, etc,” he continued. “And although my brother was suffering from mental health issues, we were confident that he would not harm the hostages.

“There was nothing we could have said to him or done that would have convinced him to surrender,” he added.

The FBI has yet to label the attack antisemitic, arguing that Malik was not directly targeting the Jewish community when he demanded the release of Lady al-Qaeda.

This writer is not fooled by “Taqiyya” (permissible lying) which is found in the Quran. I am thankful that none of the people in the Synagogue were harmed or killed.

I do pray for the family of the terrorist that they would leave Islam and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ for Salvation.

HOW CAN I BE SAVED?

MARANATHA!

    Maybe there is substance to the man being mentally ill. A man out of the dessert who was quite mentally ill easily observable by his life and writings about 1500 years ago wrote down how to live. A mentally ill man writes instructions and others follow the mentally ill instructions so the illness spreads. Those that only barely humor it may not be mentally ill but those that really follow those instructions would be quite mentlly ill it seems.

    Who can reason to murder an unborn child but one with a depraved mind. Who can fathom to shoot their 14 year old daughter thrice for opening the door and talking to a stranger but one with a depraved mind. What woman can boast in cutting off her breasts and declaring herself a man but one with a depraved mind. And yet a man who races against women is no man but a coward and one with a depraved mind. The scientists gloat in their arrogance and claim that there is no God but they are of a depraved mind. The sorcerers prepare their venomous sting and tell you their way is the only way to life yet they too are of a depraved mind. “And this is the judgement: the Light has come into this world, and the people loved the darkness rather than the Light because their works were evil.”
