“The Iranian was then sent to the hospital, and at the hospital he’s still threatening to kill anyone who isn’t a member of Islam or Muslim.” This was after he assaulted two sheriff’s deputies and threatened to set off a bomb while “praying to Allah.”
Note how defensive Hancock County Sheriff Ricky Adam is: “When we have somebody that’s making these threats, we know he’s Iranian, we know he’s a Muslim, and regardless what anybody says, dammit, they’ve killed people. So we have to take it seriously and we are.” Clearly, Adam is already anticipating charges of “Islamophobia” resulting from his daring to arrest a Muslim making terrorist threats: “regardless of what anybody says,” he says, they have to “take it seriously” — in other words, they can’t back down for fear of charges of “racism” and “bigotry” that he obviously knows will be coming, because they always do.
Meanwhile, Safa Alidoust does appear to be legitimately mentally ill. All too often authorities ascribe jihad activity as mental illness in order to cover up that it’s really jihad activity, but this business about praying in the nude does make it seem as if Alidoust has really gone round the bend. No sect of Islam requires nudity for prayer. Unfortunately, his mental illness does seem to have an aggressive, belligerent aspect that does have a heavy Islamic character.
HANCOCK COUNTY, MS (WLOX) – An Iranian national arrested in Hancock County Sunday for allegedly making terrorist threats and assaulting two sheriff’s deputies will have a bond hearing Tuesday.
Authorities say they were forced to shut down a portion of I-10 near the Mississippi-Louisiana state line for more than two hours after Safa Alidoust, 32, threatened to set off explosive devices he claimed were in his car. Sheriff’s officials say it’s a bizarre case.
“Got a call of a naked man on I-10, dispatchers dispatch a deputy out there. When he got there, the guy was naked. So he approaches him, he was talking to him, as they were talking he and the suspect get into a wrestling match,” said Hancock County Sheriff Ricky Adam.
The car Sheriff Adam said the suspect was driving was impounded behind the Sheriff’s Department and it had what is believed to be the suspect’s clothes on the floor board and passenger seat. The sheriff said while the interstate scuffle was going on, a second officer was sent to the scene.
Adam said the deputies, “Finally subdue him after about 10 or 15 minutes of fighting with him. Which in turn injured one of our officers.”
Adam said the scene became more intense after the suspect began making threats praying to Allah and saying he’s got a bomb and he’s going to blow everybody up. That’s when the sheriff says the Biloxi Bomb Squad was called.
“They x-rayed a couple of packages that were in the vehicle,” explained Sheriff Adam.
Fortunately no bomb was found in the car . But a background check on the suspect determined Alidoust is an Iranian national living in Lafayette, Louisiana on a work visa.
“And works for an oil company over there, a petroleum company., [sic] The Iranian was then sent to the hospital, and at the hospital he’s still threatening to kill anyone who isn’t a member of Islam or Muslim. When we have somebody that’s making these threats, we know he’s Iranian, we know he’s a Muslim, and regardless what anybody says, dammit, they’ve killed people. So we have to take it seriously and we are,” explained Adam.
The Sheriff said the suspect told his deputies he was nude because he is required to pray that way.
Adam said, “If that’s what they believe I can care less. They can do it. just [sic] don’t do it on the interstate.”…
