Concerning the murders of the Armanious family, I wrote a post here, titled Sharia Vigilantism in New Jersey? which raised the question as to whether this was a Muslim-on-Christian hate crime. I wrote this: "He paid for those beliefs in full, not only with his life but his family's", and then linked to a post by Robert Spencer which jumped to a premature conclusion. I also made reference to their fate in a post here on Wahhabi evangelism in America, to wit: "Jersey City is where the slaughtered Armanious family lived. Coincidence? Possibly, but we don't know yet."
I was mistaken for doing so. Associated Press reported the arrest of two murder suspects, Edward McDonald and Hamilton Sanchez:
But Hudson County Prosecutor Edward DeFazio said the killings took place during a robbery by the two men, who owed someone a large sum of money.
"I'd like to make one thing perfectly clear: The motive for these murders was robbery. This was a crime based on greed, the desperate need of money," DeFazio said.
I apologize to the OW readership, and I retract any reference made which suggested or hinted, directly or indirectly, implicitly or explicitly, that the murderers were Muslims, and for any words which could be interpreted in that fashion.
