There is no hint in the news article below, aside from the surname of Malvo’s accomplice and mentor John Muhammad, that these were jihad attacks, and this fact was notably absent from all the establishment media coverage of these murders. However, that is exactly what they were. Back in 2003, Michelle Malkin outlined the evidence:
Malvo’s violent drawings and anti-American and anti-Semitic rantings show him to be every bit as blood-thirsty, hatemongering and martyr-craving as any Sept. 11 hijacker or Palestinian suicide bomber. Among Malvo’s jailhouse artwork:
Exhibit 65-006: A self-portrait of Malvo in the cross hairs of a gun scope shouting, ‘ALLAH AKBAR!’ The word ‘SALAAM’ scrawled vertically. A poem: ‘Many more will have to suffer. Many more will have to die. Don’t ask me why.’
Exhibit 65-016: A portrait of Saddam Hussein with the words ‘INSHALLAH’ and ‘The Protector,’ surrounded by rockets labeled ‘chem’ and ‘nuk.’
Exhibit 65-043: Father and son portrait of Malvo and Muhammad. ‘We will kill them all. Jihad.’
Exhibit 65-056: A self-portrait of Malvo as sniper, lying in wait, with his rifle. ‘JIHAD’ written in bold letters. . . .
Exhibit 65-067: A suicide bomber labeled ‘Hamas’ walking into a McDonald’s restaurant. Another drawing of the Twin Towers burning captioned: ’85 percent chance Zionists did this.’ More scrawls: ‘ALLAH AKBAR,’ ‘JIHAD’ and ‘Islam will explode.’
Exhibit 65-103: A lion accompanies chapter and verse from the Koran (‘Sura 2:190’): ‘Fight in the cause of Allah those who fight you and slay them wherever ye catch them.’
Exhibit 65-109: Portrait of Osama bin Laden, captioned ‘Servant of Allah.’
Exhibit 65-117: The White House drawn in crosshairs, surrounded by missiles, with a warning: ‘Sep. 11 we will ensure will look like a picnic to you’ and ‘you will bleed to death little by little.’ . . .
Exhibit 65-101: Malvo’s thought for the day: ‘Islam the only true guidance, the way of peace.’
Here is Malvo’s drawing of Osama bin Laden:
“Sniper who terrorized nation’s capital, killed 10 seeks lighter sentence,” Bellingham Herald, January 24, 2018 (thanks to FTS):
A sniper who randomly killed 10 people and terrorized the Washington, D.C., region more than 15 years ago is entitled to a new hearing to ask for a lighter sentence, his lawyer argued Tuesday to a federal appeals court.
Lee Boyd Malvo was 17 when he and his mentor, John Allen Muhammad, then 41, shot people in Virginia, Maryland and Washington as they pumped gas, loaded packages into their cars and went about their everyday business during a three-week period in 2002.
Bellingham was brought into the national spotlight during the hunt for the so-called D.C. snipers. Investigators later discovered the two drifters lived in Bellingham for a few months in 2001 and 2002, staying at the Lighthouse Mission while Malvo attended Bellingham High School. Malvo was taking college-level Advanced Placement classes.
Muhammad was sentenced to death and was executed in Virginia in 2009.
A jury convicted Malvo of capital murder for killing FBI analyst Linda Franklin, who was shot in the head outside a Home Depot store, but spared him the death penalty. Malvo later struck plea deals in other cases in Virginia and Maryland. He ultimately received four life sentences in Virginia and six in Maryland.
Malvo’s lawyer Craig Cooley on Tuesday urged the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to uphold a ruling by a federal judge who last year ordered new sentencing hearings in Virginia under a U.S. Supreme Court ruling that found mandatory life-without-parole sentences for juveniles unconstitutional. A 2016 Supreme Court ruling made the decision retroactive, extending it to people like Malvo who were already sentenced before the court found such punishments unconstitutional….
“How do you get around the plea agreement – the finality of plea agreements?” Judge Paul Niemeyer asked Cooley.
Cooley said Malvo agreed to “what is now an illegal sentence, an unconstitutional sentence.”…
