ISLAMOPHILE 082708: Jihad On The UNC Campus

August 27, 2008

Naturalized US citizen from Iran, Mohammed Taheri-Azar.

A former student at the University of North Carolina was sentenced to up to 33 years in prison for plowing his sport utility vehicle into a crowd on the Chapel Hill campus in a self-professed bid to avenge the deaths of Muslims overseas.

The driver, Mohammed Taheri-Azar, pleaded guilty this month to nine counts of attempted murder in the March 2006 attack at a popular outdoor gathering spot known as the Pit. One person had a head injury and several had cuts and bruises, said District Attorney Jim Woodall of Orange County. Mr. Taheri-Azar, 25, is a naturalized citizen from Iran who grew up near Charlotte and graduated from the university. (source)
