A tale of two headlines…

Speaking of seeing what you want to see here is the headline from Channel 12 news:

Professor Dies After Stabbing at Binghamton University

And the story that followed:

A Binghamton University professor is dead tonight after being stabbed by an anthropology student.

It happened around 1:45 pm Friday in the Science 1 Building on campus.

This is video of the hallway where the incident happened.

A witness tells Action News that an older male graduate student entered the office of professor Richard Antoun and then stabbed him.

A seemingly senseless murder but lets look at another headline on the same subject from a different source:

Saudi Arabian student charged with killing prof

And the story:

A Binghamton University graduate student from Saudi Arabia was charged with killing a professor emeritus in Islamic and Middle Eastern studies.

Abdulsalam al-Zahrani was charged Saturday with stabbing to death Richard Antoun last Friday in his office at the update New York university.

Broome County District Attorney Gerald Mollen said in a statement that there is no indication of a religious or ethnic motivation, according to reports.

Antoun, 77, had conducted research in Jordan, Lebanon and Iran, according to reports.

What is the connection? Mark Steyn provides it:

Another Case of PTSD?

…and this time the poor guy’s not even in the military! From Channel 12 WBNG:

A Binghamton University professor is dead tonight after being stabbed by an anthropology student.

That’s one way of putting it. Another is that Abdulsalam Al-Zahrani killed Richard T Antoun, author of Understanding Fundamentalism: Christian, Islamic and Jewish Movements.

What is amazing is many of the same people who insist Global Warming is a clear and present danger look at the repeated evidence of the dangers of radical Islamists and discount it utterly.

The story doesn’t rate a mention on memeorandum, Pam Geller noticed, but then again she always does and makes this observation concerning the murder of this convert to Judaism:

There will be no coverage of this, yet again. If it were a white guy killing a black professor, or a Jewish guy killing a muslim, they would be clubbing us like baby seals with it.

Take a look at the photo, this wasn’t some kid either this guy was MY age. No wonder the Yale people are terrified.

Three choices: submit, convert or die. If you aren’t going to resist, then make your choice.

Update: Michelle discovers it today in my own local paper (we have two), no word on why it’s in the “money” section.

Update 2: Just had lunch at the Diner at the corner. It was on the front page of the print edition.
