New York Man Who Attacked Police With Hatchet Was Muslim Convert.

NEW YORK – A New York man who attacked a group of police officers with a hatchet this week has been found to have been a convert to Islam who studied beheadings and had a disdain for America and Christians.

Zale Thompson, 32, charged a group of four New York City police officers with a hatchet on Thursday as they were posing for a photograph. He struck Joseph Mecker, 24, in the arm and dealt Kenneth Healey, 25, a blow to the head. Mecker was treated at the hospital and released, but Healey remains in critical condition.

Thompson was shot dead on the scene by the other officers that witnessed the attack.

During a news conference on Friday, Police Commissioner William Bratton and NYPD Deputy Counterterrorism Chief John Miller declared the incident a terrorist attack. They outlined that Thompson had converted to Islam two years ago and had studied beheadings and other Islamic material online prior to the incident.

“The fact that he was walking around with a hatchet in the backpack makes it clear this individual had some sense of preparation,” Bratton stated.

“It appears, just from the electronic forensic piece of this, that this is something he has been thinking about for some time and thinking about with more intensity in recent days,” agreed Miller.

Some state that video footage of the attack shows Thompson staking out the officers from afar before pulling the hatchet from his backpack and then charging them with the weapon.

The FBI examined Thompson’s online activity on Friday and found that he had a disdain for Christians and westerners. He reportedly had made comments on Facebook and YouTube that characterized white Christians as being “aggressive and violent” and spoke against the “Christianized Negro” for becoming adherents of the religion “his slave master gave him.”

“If you’re looking for ‘perfect’ Muslims who never make any mistakes in their Jihad, then you will be looking in vain!” he wrote. “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?”

Thompson also was upset about reports of police brutality and has a criminal history that includes six previous arrests.

“I’m very comfortable this was a terrorist attack,” Bratton stated, though noting that he would describe Thompson as being “self-directed in his activities” since he did not have any ties to ISIS or any particular group.

Just like that killer in the Oklahoma beheading incident; just like the two French-Canadian converts who murdered Canadian soldiers last week

Homegrown Islamic terrorism seems like more of a problem these days than the regular kind…

    The cultural dynamic that the progs (and neocons) are desperately trying to overlook here is that these incidents are outgrowths of deeper problems. Sociologist Rollo May pointed out back in the 1960s that, when the fringe elements of society start becoming noticeably active, these are bellweathers of a deep cultural decline. Historical examples include the random violence in 1760s France; 1900s Russia; and 1920s Germany—that led to the rise of the Jacobins, Bolsheviks, and Nazis once those social factors coalesced into organized movements.

    What we have in the Anglosphere is a generation of Indigoes/Millenials who have been instilled by the progs with a hyperinflated sense of their own value and a sense of entitlement; combined with a contempt for all things stronger and better than themselves and a belief that violence is accepted if done in the cause of ‘social justice.’ The fruit of this is mass-shootings, random acts of violence, and attraction to bizarre causes like radical Islam (or anything else contrary to ‘mainstream culture’.

    What all this is awaiting is a new Robespierre, Lenin, or Hitler to give these ‘feelings’ a face and expression and when that happens the Anglosphere is going to have a big problem on its hands.

    I think it was Greg Guttfeld on Twitter who said we need to quit calling these “one-off incidents.”
    No disagreement from me.

    What’s even worse is that Obama—to score election year points—is over there dropping bombs all over the place and missing ISIS (because they don’t really know where they are). ISIS fighters go into their caves until the airstrikes are over, and then emerge to commit more mayhem.

    Then you have Neocons screeching that ‘we need boots on the ground! The airstrikes aren’t working!’ Duh—the Iraqi and Syrian armies already have boots on the ground, but can’t get to the battlefield with all the bombing going on.

    Last week, the airstrikes in Syria were halted; and the Syrian Army went on the offensive and nearly has ISIS driven out of the country. Then the hypocrites in NATO displayed pictures of civilians wounded by their own bombs and tried to palm it off as Assad committing war crimes.
