  1. He looks the part of a Hezbollah/Iranian terrorist and should have been cut down with his own knife at the scene. And let’s not forget his parents and his imam(s) who undoubtedly taught him this hatred: they need to have their citizenship or green cards revoked and sent into exile. I have a number of wonderful, well-educated, moderate Muslim friends but we’ve clearly let in too many of the likes of this POS and Omar and Tliab!
