None of the hostages were killed; kudos to the FBI.

This is why we need DOJ and FBI going after the evil doers in the homeland. For our safety.

Yes because “a British man” is obviously the most truthful and accurate description of this person, right?

He was born in Blackburn, which is north of Manchester. The below link mentions where he was born near the bottom of the article.

How would you truthfully and accurately describe a man born in Lancashire in England ?

English perhaps ?

It took a few generations for my own family and those of their ethnicity to be considered "American" and loyal by the Anglo majority of the time so it's not an unexpected reaction.

Well, the article writer might have pointed out that he ethnic Pakistani and loyal to islamist causes, but just writing "British man" is so much more convenient, isnt it.

Unlucky, by those of us from the other side of the Pennines, but seriously, a correct description would be "a British man of Pakistani descent", something which most people guessed at before the information was published.

hey at least someone gets it. The FBI is acting as if some random guy from the UK accidentally stumbled into a synagogue and was just angry that an order he placed online for some car parts wasnt sent on time.

go back and look at all of the "motive not yet known" by the FBI type cases when it was obvious what the motive was. To this day there is still no motive, just memory holed until people forget about those.

And then wonder why they immediately had an entire back story ready of why this guy (who they conveniently killed) did NOT have the motive that everyone knows he had. They released the non motive before they even identified who he was.

But parents at school board meetings? "domestic terrorists"

The last hostage was released and then the hostage taker dies?

How convenient.

Two teenagers in the north west of England have also been arrested in connection with the incident.

The press is right to just say that the guy is a Briton. There's been too much emphasis on a terrorist's ethnicity to stir up the pot of ethnic hatred and superstition. A terrorist is a terrorist is a terrorist. Red, yellow, white, black, brown, green. The Boston Marathon terrorist is a white Chechnya scum. Are all Chechnya that way? Are all ethnic Pakistani like this jerk? And an antisemite is an antisemite is an antisemite as well. Note that that one who caused a ruckus at the Pittsburgh synagogue wasn't ethnic Pakistani.

It's amazing to me, given that Texas is notorious as a hateful violent land of dunderheads who think they're cowboys, love the loser Trump and love to pick on 'strange' people - that so many diverse people there, incl. the Christian and Islamic community are standing together with the Jewish community there. And make no mistake, this incident IS an act of antisemitism.
