Alleged Israeli Serial Killer Arrested in Atlanta

‘Flint Slasher’ was headed for Tel Aviv

Print Email
Sketch of the killer.(Ma'ariv)

These last few years have been good to Israelis trying to make it in the States, from the first Israeli player in the NBA to the first Israeli model on the cover of Sports Illustrated. Today, we can most likely add another to this list of firsts: The first Israeli serial killer to do his deeds stateside.

Today, U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents arrested Abd el Azam, an Arab Israeli citizen, as he was boarding a Tel-Aviv-bound Delta flight in Atlanta. He was later handed over to the FBI. El Azam is suspected of stabbing twenty victims in four states, killing at least five people and earning the moniker the Flint Slasher after the Michigan town where he reportedly began his violent spree.

Local authorities connected with the case suspect that the motive for the crimes was good ol’ fashioned racism—all of his victims were black or Hispanic. “I believe [the killer’s] motivation was pure hatred,” said Joseph Price, chief of police in Leesburg, Virginia.

ALLEGED? They have mapped the travels of this Zionist miscreant with the goys he has victimized and murdered across America. Why didn’t you scream “ALLEGED” with any of the alleged Nazis you so gleefully stalked? Huh?

And this is “THE FIRST ISRAELI SERIAL KILLER TO DO HIS DEEDS STATEWIDE? Uh, pardon me, but you forgot the NYC Jew David Berkewitz who was also fond of knives.

It does not matter where a Jew is, he is always in search of a victim, of some sorts.

This is indicative, just as is the case with Bernie Madoff, that these Khazars are stalking the people of the world as goys that are subject to Jubuse..

Tony’s comment speaks for itself: Anti-Semites don’t read much past the headlines ;)

Theodore Herzl’s dream for Israel was after all of a country as any other, with thieves, murderers, prostitutes and more. It has nothing to do with being a jew, since the Israeli in this case is not even Jewish. Suffice it to say that criminals come in all colors, shapes and religions and unfortunately, we jews are not different.

Of course he’s Arab.

If he were Jewish, why apprehend him? Let him go to Israel—a nation of serial killers.
