The NY Sun has an editorial today about the shooting at the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle.
The gist of the editorial is that officials are too quick to declare attacks on Jews in the US by Muslims to be that a lone gunman. The Sun points to previous incidents including NYC. I quote from the Sun -
When, on February 24, 1997, Ali Abu Kamal, a Palestinian Arab, opened fire on the observation deck of the Empire State Building, killing one and wounding six, the New York Times reported, "the Mayor said the gunman's motive was unknown, and he cautioned against drawing any conclusions about terrorism or the man's Palestinian background."
1997 - Who was the Mayor then?
