As the Texas synagogue hostage situation played out, Michigan’s Attorney General Dana Nessel suggested that it was connected to white supremacy while President Joe Biden called it an act of terror and then proclaimed that there wasn’t “sufficient information” to know why it happened.
Nessel appeared on MSNBC on Saturday to make her outrageous insinuation just about an hour after the Islamic attacker demanded the release of terrorist Pakistani neuroscientist Aafia Siddiqui, better known as “Lady al Qaeda” after taking hostages at the Beth Israel Synagogue in Colleyville, Texas. Nessel adamantly stated that her “biggest concern” was that the siege was a “hate crime” or “domestic terrorism,” and then suggested “white supremacy organizations” could be behind the attack.
“We have seen an incredible rise in rhetoric that is antisemitic being trafficked all around the country,” she charged and noted “an exponential rise in the formation and the membership of these extremist organizations, many of which are white supremacy organizations, and they traffic in hatred against Jews and other minorities.”
“If it does turn out that is the motivating factor here, it would hardly be a surprise,” Nessel commented, evidently attempting to stir incitement.

Meanwhile, Biden echoed ridiculous talking points from the FBI stating that there wasn’t sufficient information to know why the Muslim hostage-taker targeted a synagogue in Texas.
“Do you know why he targeted that specific synagogue, Mr. President?” a reporter asked Biden.
“Well, no, I don’t. We don’t have — I don’t think there is sufficient information to know about why he targeted that synagogue or why he insisted on the release of someone who’s been in prison for over 10 years, why he was engaged — why he was using antisemitic and anti-Israeli comments. I — we just don’t have enough facts,” he confusingly replied after labeling the hostage situation an act of terror while slapping the FBI on the back.

British national Malik Faisal Akram, 44, has been identified as the hostage-taker, according to Reuters. He was killed in the incident and claimed to be Siddiqui’s brother. He had demanded the release of “Lady al Qaeda.” All the hostages survived and were rescued.

Siddiqui is serving an 86-year sentence in a Texas federal prison for attempting to murder American soldiers. Akram’s effort to get her freed through violent means line up with other radical Islamist terrorist tactics to force compliance. Al Qaeda and ISIS have been trying to secure Siddiqui’s release for years. The Council on American Islamic Relations in the United States has loudly advocated for her release.
It is noteworthy that neither Nessel nor Biden mentioned Islamic terrorism when addressing the attack. Nessel speculated it was domestic terrorism while Biden merely called it a terror attack Saturday night, claiming we needed to learn the “motivations of the hostage-taker.” He would go on to vow to stand against “the rise of extremism in this country,” even though the terrorist came from the UK.
In a statement, London’s Metropolitan Police said its counter-terrorism officers were in contact with US authorities regarding the attack. FBI Special Agent in Charge Matt DeSarno stated that the hostage-taker was focused on an issue unrelated to the Jewish community and there was no indication that he was part of a larger terrorist scheme.
However, that perhaps may not be the case. Police in England state that they had detained two teenagers for questioning in the investigation, according to Reuters.
