Sudden Jihad Syndrome – Hollywood Edition: Gunman Shoots Random Drivers While Screaming “Allahu Akbar” (Video)

Sudden Jihad Syndrome – Hollywood Edition…
A 26 year-old gunman opened fire on random drivers yesterday in Hollywood until he was shot dead by police.
He was screaming “Allahu Akbar” while he shot Hollywood drivers.
That’s what the witnesses said:

Reuters reported on the incident.

A gunman opened fire on motorists in the heart of Hollywood on Friday, wounding three people before he was shot to death by an off-duty police officer who had been working on a nearby film set.

The bizarre mid-morning incident, which some witnesses initially mistook for a movie, touched off fear, confusion and panic at the famed Hollywood intersection of Sunset Boulevard and Vine Street.

Police said on Friday night they were still trying to determine why the 26-year-old gunman, whose name was not immediately released, began firing randomly at motorists and pedestrians.

A 40-year-old man who was struck by a bullet while driving through the intersection in a silver Mercedes was listed in critical condition at a local hospital, Los Angeles Police spokeswoman Norma Eisenman said.

Two other men suffered minor injuries, one when he was grazed by a bullet and the other when glass from a car window shattered near his face, Eisenman said. None of the wounded were identified by name.

As Atlas Shrugs reported – not one media outlet reported that the man was screaming “Allahu Akbar” as he shot at innocent Hollywood drivers.
Once again the media hid the truth from the American public.

  • Since they classified Ft Hood as ‘workplace violence’, maybe they’ll file this one under ‘road rage’, then- talk about having your friggin head in the sand

    Well, at least the taxpayers won’t be supporting him for the next 20 years or more.

    Maybe he was just an irate pedestrian, acting out on the need for more crosswalks ….


    One more example of the need for constitution carry for law abiding people in all states. Had there been a healthy number of armed citizens he would have been put down in half the time. But no the people of the ROC have to wait for the cops to show up and protect them.

    I’m going to put this one right next to, “What’s the frequency Kenneth!?!”

    I suspect it’ll turn out he’s got a history with insanity or drugs or both.

    This really happened yesterday? How come there was so little news coverage?
    How odd.
    Another delusional Christian, I’ll bet. You know those right wing extremists hate Hollywood/

  • Sam Stone

    If he was screaming Occupy Occupy, that would not be reported either. If he was screaming anything of a Christian nature it would be reported and Napoliclowno would be raiding every Catholic church for miles around!

  • Stan

    If he was screaming “Jesus Saves!”, this would be front-page news.

    Of course, if the police on the scene knew he was screaming “Allahu ackbar”, they might not have gunned him down out of fear of being labeled an “Islamophobe”.

  • A. Levy

    Of course the MSM didn’t report this story truthfully. Why should they? In a nation populated by weak, gullible, mindless fools, who will believe just about anything if it’s packaged right, or said by some TV talking head, the MSM (and the rest of the Left) knows they can tell the public whatever they want, whenever they want, and however they want to report it.

    America’s fall will come at the hands of, not the elected lying crooks in govt, and not the pro-communist media. It will come at the hands of the sheep who populate this once-free nation.

  • Mahdi Al-Dajjal

    Well they CAN’T report that he was a muslim. They believe that they’re protecting the rest of us by not reporting this story accurately. The cowards in the mainstream media are too worried about how angry the rest of the muslims might get if it was reported that the cops executed a muslim in the street. I mean… they’re worried that something in Hollywood might just go BOOM.

  • truth teller

    Damn…would have loved to saw that mother-f%cker down with an AR-15…try your Allahu Akbar sh%t anywhere else and see what happens!

  • Patty

    Jihad, off meds, mentally disturbed and undiagnosed, escapee from prison or halfway house.

    Compounded by Military, not all, who come home with images that they just can’t get out of head or become the homeless and jobless. Whatever the problem, there are many sad reasons for more than before to act out and worse of all kill others in the process.

  • “Suicide by Kafir.”

    Hope it catches on . . .

  • Patty

    This is one scenario and another is he could have entered a busy mall with an AK-7 loaded and surplus supply of magazines and shoot up everyone.

  • regularguy

    The “sudden” jihad syndrome began months or years ago with the satanic infestation of this man’s soul by islam.

  • burt

    Nothing new. The media are elites. They tell you what they want you to know. If they can blame it on a Christian, they will.

  • truth teller

    Who cares the reason? He is a deranged Muslim and must be put down.

  • truth teller

    Unless you want US cities to look like Kandahar…the Muslim cancer in the US must be dealt with swiftely and forcefully. Allowing these morons to bring their terror onto our soil should not be tolerated.

  • truth teller

    know how to spell swiftly…thanks

  • Benton Park Avenger

    Crazy work place shooter just like Fort Hood, probably saw a hateful creche or menorah on public display and he lost it.

  • aprilnovember811

    I thought Hollywood was immune from what the rest of us peasants were exposed to, you know, like Islamic Jihad. Aren’t they special human beings where they aren’t affected by such things? At least they thought so. My hearts go out to the normal people out there, the commies who voted for the Muslim infiltrator, not so much.

  • aprilnovember811

    They can just call it, street violence. Like the Fort Hood massacre was, “Workplace violence.”

  • aprilnovember811

    Sam Stone,
    I think you were referring to Chaz Napolitano?

  • Just posted that Diane Sawyer and Bill Weir pushed Islam in a near Infomercial blatantly misleading Americans about what the Quaran says.

    Nope. If he was named Joe Smith or Jeff Williams, you can bet your last red cent they would have reported his name. That they didn’t implies that his name is some version of mohamed.

  • DK

    Silly, you can’t mention the word “Jihad” when reporting and murderous Muslims. This is better known to the MSM as SMILES…Sudden Muslim Intense Love Everyone Syndrome.

  • Captain Chaos

    The left-wing media are ass****** and liars. Nothing new here.

    Wait a minute. The Virginia Tech Korean student shooter didn’t “come home with images that he just couldn’t’ get out of his head.” The Post Office makes people snap more than any other job on the planet… or maybe they consistently hire people they shouldn’t be hiring.

    Humanitarian aid workers “come home with images that they just can’t get out of their heads,” but Hollywood never makes movies showing THEM snapping, do they?

    The drug and booze Hollywood culture LOVES pushing their blame game fraud against our military, active and vets.

    And with so many vets with actual skills, they are more likely to find work than the #OWS drugged out crowd, ain’t that right? The “vets” the #OWS paraded were dumped OUT of the military for being useless, lying sacks.

  • bronxdude

    “Allahu Akbar” is no more violent to say than “Merry Holiday”. There is nothing to report here beside the right wing’s opportunity to jump on a simple, but tragic traffic violation to mark political points…”


  • #30 – absolutely spot on. In addition, there are many of us civilians walking around with images that haunt us (i.e. 9-11) but we don’t resort to shrieking a hated phrase and mowing innocent people down. We deal.

  • Radegunda

    Patty #13 — I think the murder rate by military vets is lower than for the population at large.

    Thank Heavens we had someone carrying some “heat” that did not fill out all the necessary forms, regulations of a Socialist City.

  • mitch Rapp

    Heavens, was his rights explained to him? Was he offered an interpreter?

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    Something I noticed in news coverage on one of the local channels last night is that the name of the shooter wasn’t released, but they went so far as to say that he was white. That seemed rather unusual to me.


    Workplace violence ?

  • RS

    Isn’t that “Merry Christmas” in Arabic?

  • woodchuck

    Didnt hear one damn word of this on the news!

  • Jayne on Left Coast

    This was barely reported on news here. All I heard was “suicide by cop”. News spent a lot of time explaining. SBC

  • Sandy

    The Muslims are our friends — The Muslims are our friends. No matter what they do or how many Americans they kill — The Muslims are our friends. When was the last time Muslims killed Americans? Was that only yesterday? I don’t know who this Terrorist wannabe was but its obvious that he was looking to commit Suicide By Cop.

  • Mad Hatter

    I wonder if TLC will show this on their propaganda show “All-American Muslim.”

  • Sandy

    Once there was a country powerful and strong
    Until they gave it all away to right every wrong.

    “Allahu Akbar” probably means have another beer
    After all Successful Americans are the real ones to fear.

    This guy hit what he hates most, rich People and HollyWood. Muslims hate HollyWood because of the sexual deviant and anti God crap they put out and to cover the “Occupy” base…… rich people.
    Maybe this will be a wake-up call for rich liberals in HollyWood but, don’t hold your breath.

    I keep a shotgun in the car and handy for an occasion such as this. Winchester SX3 Holds 12 rounds and can deliver ALL of them in less that 1.5 seconds.
