Who is ‘Lady Al Qaida’? The woman at the center of the Texas synagogue standoff.

By

A 10-hour hostage situation at a Texas synagogue ended with the death of hostage-taker Malik Faisal Akram, a British national. During the standoff, Akram demanded the release of Aafia Siddiqui.

Siddiqui earned the nickname ‘Lady Al Qaida’ in 2008, when she was arrested for being part of an alleged Al Qaida plot for a mass casualty attack on the United States.

Siddiqui was also convicted of shooting at U.S. service members during an interrogation, where she grabbed a military rifle from an army officer.

“I am going to kill all you Americans,” Siddiqui screamed, according to officers. “You are going to die by my blood.”

Siddiqui is serving an 86-year sentence at a federal prison in Ft. Worth, Texas.

During Saturday’s hostage situation, Siddiqui’s lawyer released a statement in defense of her client.

“I don’t want any violence in my name. Please,” Siddqui’s lawyer claims Siddiqui said previously.

SHE IS KNOWN AS “LADY AL-QAIDA.”

AND HER NAME BECAME FRONT AND CENTER ONCE AGAIN – AFTER A HARROWING HOSTAGE SITUATION INSIDE THIS TEXAS SYNAGOGUE.

WHO EXACTLY IS AAFIA SIDDIQUI?

LET’S GET THIS STRAIGHT: 

THE MAN WHO HELD FOUR PEOPLE HOSTAGE INSIDE THAT  SYNAGOGUE  WAS DEMANDING THE RELEASE OF A PAKISTANI WOMAN NAMED AAFIA SIDDIQUI AKA “LADY AL-QAIDA”

SHE’S SERVING AN 86-YEAR SENTENCE AT A FEDERAL PRISON IN FT. WORTH.

SIDDIQUI WAS ARRESTED IN 2008 IN AFGHANISTAN FOR BEING PART OF AN ALLEGED AL-QAIDA PLOT FOR A “MASS CASUALTY ATTACK” IN THE U.S. 

ACCORDING TO REPORTS, SHE WAS FOUND WITH DOCUMENTS SHOWING HOW TO MAKE DIRTY BOMBS, CHEMICAL WEAPONS AND HOW TO WEAPONIZE THE EBOLA VIRUS.  

WHILE IN CUSTODY, SHE GRABBED A  MILITARY RIFLE OFF A U.S. ARMY OFFICER AND OPENED FIRE.

SHE MISSED.

THE OFFICER FIRED BACK, HITTING HER IN THE STOMACH — AS SHE SCREAMED – “I AM GOING TO KILL ALL YOU AMERICANS. YOU ARE GOING TO DIE BY MY BLOOD.”

LADY AL-QAIDA WAS THEN FLOWN TO THE US – AND CONVICTED.

SINCE THEN, MILITANT ISLAMISTS HAVE FOUGHT FOR HER INNOCENCE.

AS HAVE SOME MAINSTREAM U-S ISLAMIC GROUPS.

JUST THIS PAST OCTOBER — AMERICAN MUSLIMS FOR PALESTINE HELD A RALLY DEMANDING HER RELEASE.

DURING THE HOSTAGE SITUATION,  HER LAWYER RELEASED THIS STATEMENT.  

DID WE GET THAT STRAIGHT?
