Muslim Woman Who Made Anti-Semitic Deliveries Killed
A Muslim woman who recently sent a package containing an anti-Semitic letter to United States Congressman Peter King, has been shot and killed in her Atlanta-area apartment.

In April, 53-year-old Jameela Barnette sent a pig’s foot, along with some anti-Semitic comments to King (R-N.Y.), the chair of the House of Representatives’ Homeland Security Committee, after King, who was not Jewish, had referred to the “radicalization” of American Muslims.

Barnette was killed after a police officer, responding to an alarm, knocked on the door of her apartment and was met by the woman who attacked him with both a knife and a gun. The officer shot her with his gun.

She was also accused of sending a stuffed Curious George doll with a Star of David attached to another Congressman who had chaired a hearing on terrorism.

“I knew the Jews were behind the hearings. A monkey is a representation of who the Jews are,” Barnette was quoted as explaining the curious package, according to The Marietta Daily Journal.
