Scant coverage has been given to the story of doctor Mark Samir Sawaf. He was an LPCC Psychotherapist in Kentucky. This was his public image. His private life was more sinister than you can imagine. What the media is not telling you about this case was that Sawaf was a Muslim and a terrorist before he was gunned down in Kentucky for an alleged crime. Samir Sawaf set up IED’s and pipe bombs in Kentucky. While his story gained local coverage in Kentucky, the reason is that the media forgot to tell the public that the family stems from Karbala, Iraq, the land of terrorism and IEDs. The Sawafs were welcomed to the land of ‘the candy shop’: USA.
Obama wants to welcome middle eastern immigrants to the candy shop. But how can we filter the good from the bad and the ugly? Or better yet, from the lone-wolf terrorist?
It is virtually impossible. And even if they commit acts of terror, unless one can find a Facebook page loaded with photos of Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi and the ISIS black flags, the media will tell you nothing more than ‘it was a crime’.
What they will also never tell you, is that, regardless if Muslims lives in the land of the candy shop for 10, 20, or 30 years, it makes no difference: a Muslim will always cling to his roots, no matter what. This, at times, can be very hazardous to your health, even if that Muslim is a doctor. No one can screen these or would even suspect in a million years, after analyzing Sawaf’s life, that he was a terrorist. These can even hitch with blonds and naive women who think nothing if a Muslim is Muslim.
It even gets more puzzling for westerners, who are not able to sift things Muslim. The Sawafs are Shiites, and these even hate ISIS. But hating ISIS and hating Sunni terrorists does not immune a Muslim from being a lone-wolf. It matters nothing, even if they drink or sleep around. Samir Sawaf had set up several explosives, not only in cameras, but also hidden PVC pipe bombs, hidden and rigged with trip wires. He was planting these Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) inside trail cameras and leaving them “on paths in rural areas routinely accessed via the Dave Smith Drainage Area” since last March. Some were designed so they would explode when someone placed batteries inside; others were booby trapped with a trip wire leading to the camera. Sawaf booby trapped cameras like this one so they would explode when you put batteries in. And explode, one of them did, taking the fingers off some poor soul.
His actions were not classified as ‘terrorist’, since there was no evidence he belonged to ISIS or was ‘radicalized’, as they say. Sawaf, after all, was Shiite, not Sunni. Sawaf was arrested in June, the result of a joint investigation by federal and local law enforcement. He then tricked law enforcement to show them where he had set up his IEDs. They never recovered all of the IEDs and ATF found some of what he hid in the woods and sounded the alarms to issue a massive warnings to the public. Why they sent the warnings was simple: while on that trip back to Harlan County, where police were hoping he would reveal the locations of any unexploded traps, he tried to grab an officer’s weapon, in an attempt to escape, and was ‘martyred’ in August.
Why do I say ‘martyred’? The media doesn’t tell you that his relatives back in Iraq say so. One family condolences to his father says:
“may Allah reside him with all the martyrs in heaven and increase your faith”.
He was, to many in his family, a ‘martyr’, not a criminal. His father, Ali Sawaf, also a medical doctor, on September 3rd, posted on his timeline in memory (in English of course), with his son’s photo and a rose that says (in Arabic of course): “O Allah. Islam is my religion”:
Ali Sawaf told WKYT that he didn’t see what the big deal was about his son planting bombs in the first place:
The explosives, his dad says, are nothing more than a hobby.
While it is difficult for us to better sift the good from the bad and the ugly, it is easier to sift the smart from the naive. Kimberly Michaela Humphrey is not sifting between the lines:
I can’t tell you how many times I have been told “my doctor is Muslim and he is a nice guy”. Such sentiments comes from so many naive. Sawaf was the nicest of people. My mother always asks the doctor “are you Muslim” and if the answer is “yes”, she don’t give a crap, she walks right out. Always look into their eyes. Eyes are the window to the soul. She was the naive who only knew after living in a Muslim society what it is like. Call her racist, call me bigot, we do not give a damn. Staying alive and being called racist is a much better option than being dead for being so ‘nice’. We would rather to stay alive.
