Jihad Watch: Rober Spenser will not apologize for his mistaken reporting over the "New Jersey Murders"

"Is that all it was? Hatemongers trying to stir up trouble and portray a robbery as something it wasn't? There is no doubt whatsoever that that is how the media elite will portray the weeks between the discovery of the bodies and the arrests of McDonald and Sanchez. But legitimate questions remain, and I am neither going to apologize or accept Mahmoud's "hatemonger" tag for asking them."

Again it's the media elites fault.

"I hope that facts will come out at the trial that will explain some of the features of this case that make it appear not to have been a simple robbery"

Spencer is hoping that it's a hate crime to prove himself right!

"This was reported in the New York Post and attributed to an eyewitness who saw the threat on the site at the time."

Well here's a major problem with the story. He is relying on The New York (Murdock) Post. They do have a good sports section though.

"If the motive was robbery, why was the family killed?"

Umm...To cover up the robbery? Not to be identified. They are criminals.

"If the motive was robbery and the family presumably surprised McDonald and Sanchez by being at home, leading the pair to murder them, why were the murders done with such precision? Why was so much care taken to slit their throats in a uniform manner?"

I can't even begin to respond to this.

"The Copt gave me the names of all four, along with phone numbers and other details for two of them. I had no idea whether or not the information I had been given was true, and I never claimed that it was...The only time I spoke to an official there, he was unfailingly polite but unmistakably condescending and clearly believed nothing that I had to tell him."

So he is complaining about information that HE can't verify but has enthusiastically given, and is upset because the were condescending. It sounds like they thought you were a crackpot.

"That it was just coincidental that a couple of lowlifes happened to murder this family in the same manner in which Muslims murder blasphemers and other enemies of Islam?"



I don't usually print comments because people can say some pretty wacky thinks, but here's a few anyway.
I still think there is an Islamic jihad angle in there.

Looks like they lifted the script from the old book/movie; "In Cold Blood".

I'm puzzled by the fact that robbers don't usually slit throats. It's quite uncommon.

As sad is it may sound, I truly hope that these murders can be tied to Islamic intolerance.

At the risk of being racist, I will admit that Hispanic criminals like to use knives a lot more than others. They like to get personal with their victim or adversary.

and finally: I'm reminded of Ann Coulter's words in the wake of the 9-11 terrorist attacks in which she wrote....(put in your best guess)

Even Michelle Malkin apologized: "Since January, I've blogged several times about the "hate crime in Jersey City Heights" involving the Armanious family. I was wrong."
