Tar Heel jihadist gets 33 years

The headline to this WXII story is "Former Student Sentenced In UNC Crash." Crash? There was no "crash" in the sense of an accident. Taheri-azar, by his own admission, was trying to kill students by hitting them with the SUV, and did so -- again by his own admission -- because he believed the Qur'an directed him to kill infidels. Former Student Sentenced In UNC Crash," from, August 26 (thanks to WDW):

HILLSBOROUGH, N.C. -- The former college student who pleaded guilty to plowing his sport utility vehicle into a crowd at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill will spend up to 33 years in prison.

Mohammed Taheri-Azar was sentenced Tuesday in Orange County Superior Court.

He pleaded guilty to nine counts of attempted murder earlier this month for the March 3, 2006 attack at a popular outdoor gathering spot on campus.

The 25-year-old said he was avenging the deaths of Muslims by the U.S. across the world....

Yes, and he said much more, also.
