Shooter’s relatives in disbelief over Monday’s tragedy, say they had no explanation for the rampage…A Muslim, he sometimes attended a Salt Lake City mosque for Friday prayers before landing a full-time job to help support his parents and three sisters.

Sulejman Talovic’s aunt, Ajka Omerovic, said she doesn’t know why her nephew became a mass murderer, but claimed neither he nor the rest of her family has any lingering psychological effects from the war in Bosnia.

So why would an unscarred “secular Bosnian” who left his country very young be going to a mosque in America, considering we were told that Balkan Muslims don’t *do* mosques?

Now check out this sentence from the Salt Lake Trib article linked above:

Sulejman Talovic was born in Bosnia in 1988, when that country was a peaceful and a relatively prosperous part of Yugoslavia.

What was that? Can I repeat that, please? OK:

Sulejman Talovic was born in Bosnia in 1988, when that country was a peaceful and a relatively prosperous part of Yugoslavia.

I’ll offer a translation in Islamic: “Us Muslim. Things good in infidel country. Need war.” Now consider a key western notion that this unwitting admission from a mainstream media source debunks: that all human beings have the commonality of wanting to live in PEACE and PROSPERITY, and to work for a better future for their children. Throw that right out the window. The point is not peace, prosperity and a future; the point is an Islamic state, an Islamic future. If you’ve already come to this realization, all you have to do now is apply that healthy cynicism to the Balkans as well. NO, you CANNOT make an exception here just because the infidels in this case were Serbs and they’re easy to finger because for once the Muslims picked on someone capable of responding to their barbarism with barbarism.

Are we starting to get a better idea about who “started” the Bosnian War yet? Here’s a clue: It wasn’t a dead guy whose last name starts with an “M.” Which could also explain why the Talovic family doesn’t have any psychological scars from the war.

This inadvertent admission about the Bosnia that was peaceful and prosperous enough for the 1984 OLYMPICS TO BE HELD THERE also illustrates the following Islamic maxim: You can make a deal with, and live among, the infidel when you are in a position of weakness. Wait until you can act from a position of strength, and then attack. (Precisely the advice given to Egyptian President Anwar Sadat when he came to the head imam with his dilemma: what to do about the Carter-brokered “peace” purchase with Israel. And precisely the path pursued by Arafat and Kosovo Albanians.)

More from the Salt Lake Tribune article:

Although he quit school at 16, Sulejman Talovic often attended Friday prayers at the Al-Noor mosque on 700 East in Salt Lake City, said Salih Omerovic, Ajka’s cousin.

I like the “although” — as if these two developments are somehow contradictory.

So here we’ve once again experienced the collateral benefit of “rescuing” Muslims. Right in our heartland again. Just wait ’til we get a taste of the collateral benefit of resettling Kosovo Liberation Army fighters here. (A blog on that to follow soon.)

I said it before and I’ll say it again. The Serbs weren’t fighting just their enemies; they happened to also be fighting ours.

A follow-up article from the Salt Lake Tribune offers some insight for the Talovic family, who were left *mystified* by this tragic *turn* in their “good boy”:

At age 12, Talovic was before a judge for allegedly holding a knife over the head of girl while stating, “I’ll kill you,” according to a source who is familiar with the case.

Hmm, hostility toward females — that doesn’t sound even secularly Muslim…

Two years earlier, Talovic was referred to juvenile court for throwing rocks at a little girl.

Nope, doesn’t ring a bell either.

About the same time, he threatened his parents’ landlord with a knife.

The first girl was not struck by the stones. And the mother of the second girl snatched her up in the nick of time, just as Talovic took a swipe with the blade, according to the source, who has seen court documents relating to the case.

If knifing and throwing stones at females makes for a “good boy” to this family, I wonder what makes for a bad one. Not doing these things?

Based on the premise that the family truly didn’t see this coming, I was going to explain that such occurrences go along with the younger generation of Muslims everywhere returning to their Islamic roots beyond anything their parents or even grandparents ever exposed them to, and being keenly receptive to radical Islam as a way of bringing meaning to their lives.

But then came this follow-up:

Talovic Caught Looking up AK-47s Online at School in 2004

KSL Newsradio has learned that in November of 2004, officials at the Horizante School contacted Sulejmen Talovic’s parents to tell them he’d violated the school’s Internet use policy, he was found looking up AK-47’s on the Web.

So what did the concerned parents do?

That’s when a source tells us the parents took Talovic out of school. We contacted Talovic’s Aunt who said school officials did speak with his mother.

The school district says it can’t comment on any academic records or disciplinary action.

There are some who think his background and his leaving two other schools should have sent up some red flags.
