Editor’s note: We obviously don’t support the taking of any life but we also don’t support the lionization of the dead. While many of the obituaries of Dean Bhakarat have focused on his alleged charitable endeavors, we thought we’d give you a deeper dive.
The official motive of the shooting of three Muslim-Americans in North Carolina was a dispute over a parking spot but the left-wing and Arab media are calling the killings a hate crime.
We really have no idea what actually happened between the suspect and the three Muslim-Americans. It’s equally possible that Deah Barakat’s hatred of whites could have provoked the incident as Craig Stephen Hicks avowed dislike of religion.
One of the Chapel Hill shooting victim’s tweets reveal anti-Semitic, anti-white, anti-Israel, and anti-Zionist views.
Deah Barakat tweeted over 8,000 times. Some of them are about sports. Many of them are hateful.
He retweeted and backed 9-11 conspiracy theories and compared the treatment of the Palestinians to that of Jews during the Holocaust.
Many of Barakat’s tweets are obsessed with Islam or the Koran.

Others are obsessed with Zionism and Israel.

He retweeted this photo.
In another case he tweeted out a video featuring anti-Israel fanatic Norman Finkelstein.

The video mocks American support for Israel in the most anti-Semitic of ways.
Barakat also shared a video from Burhan Ghalioun, a leader of the Syrian opposition tied to the Muslim Brotherhood.

And seems to have sent lots of money to them.
He also was nasty to white people.

Could that have been what caused the fight?
