Jewish Center Assault Suspect Identified

The Seattle Times has identified the man arrested in the Jewish communicty center assault as Naveed Afzal Haq:
A law-enforcement source identified the arrested suspect as Naveed Afzal Haq, 30, who until recently had lived in Everett, and said Haq apparently has a history of mental illness. Court records show Haq has a charge of lewd conduct pending against him in Benton County.

The shooting came a day after the FBI had warned Jewish organizations nationwide to be on alert after Hezbollah leaders in Lebanon and al-Qaida's second in command urged that the war raging in the Middle East be carried to the U.S. However, the law-enforcement source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said there is no evidence Haq was involved with any group.
Oh yes, "Peace be unto you" unless you're a filthy infidel or dog of a Jew.
