Disgusting! Mainstream U.S. Muslim groups call for Hostage takers’ release

A suspect who held four people hostage inside a Texas synagogue for several hours Saturday was reportedly demanding the release of Aafia Siddiqui, a Texas inmate known in counterterrorism.


Malik Faisal Akram, a 44-year-old British citizen, was the “hostage taker” at Congregation Beth Israel in Colleyville, near Fort Worth.

The U.K. government’s Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office confirmed earlier Sunday to Fox News Digital that the suspect in the Texas synagogue incident was a British man.

According to authorities, the incident ended Saturday night with the hostages safe and the man holding them dead.

The man allegedly had demanded the release of a Pakistani woman who is imprisoned nearby on charges of trying to kill American service members in Afghanistan.


According to authorities, the hours-long hostage incident at the Congregation Beth Israel in Colleyville ended Saturday night with the hostages safe and the man holding them hostage dead. The hostage-taker is a British national, allegedly had demanded the release of Aafia Siddiqui, a Pakistani neuroscientist who is serving an 86-year prison sentence in Texas after being convicted in 2010 on charges that she shot at U.S. military officers while being detained in Afghanistan two years earlier.

The Texas terrorist is known as “Lady Al-Qaeda.” Inside an interview room at an Afghan police compound, authorities say, she grabbed an M4 rifle of a U.S. Army officer and opened fire on members of the U.S. team assigned to interrogate her.

Just last month, CAIR’s Dallas-Fort-Worth chapter held an event called “In Pursuit of Freedom” at the East Plano Islamic Center in Plano, Texas, calling for Siddiqui’s release, claiming she had been “kidnapped, ripped apart from her children, shot at, renditioned to the U.S., and is currently serving an 86-year prison sentence for a crime she did not commit.”

On Nov 18, the CAIR chapter held an online fundraiser for Siddiqui’s defense team. Days earlier, multiple Muslim advocacy groups, including CAIR, American Muslims for Palestine (AMP), the Islamic Circle of North American Council for Social Justice (ICNA-CSJ), and the Muslim American Society PACE, held a “Free Dr. Aafia Advocacy Day” in Washington D.C., where they met with congressional offices and lobbied for Siddiqui’s release.

Biden had remarked that this was “an act of terror,” later praising the FBI and vowing he would speak with the rabbi on how his administration can support houses of worship.
