DC activist slain - random murder or targeted killing?

If 9/11 has taught me anything, it's that I must question everything.

Three assailants who cut the throat of an aspiring politician from Britain killed him and tried to rape his female companion early yesterday in the driveway of a Georgetown mansion, police reported, after the couple had returned from a night at the movies.

The victim, Alan Senitt, 27, a Jewish activist and volunteer for former Virginia governor Mark R. Warner, died at the scene, police said. The woman, whom police declined to identify, was not injured.

According to police and others, the attack occurred shortly after 2 a.m. as Senitt was seeing the woman home. The couple walked north on 31st Street NW, then turned west toward Wisconsin Avenue on Q Street NW, where the woman lives.

The two were rummaging in the trunk of a car when they were approached by three men wielding a gun and a knife. Police said Piper, who had the gun, grabbed the woman and began dragging her down the driveway. Out of view of his companions, he tried to pull off her clothes, police said. The attacker made a comment "in reference to his intent to commit a sexual assault," said Lt. Robert Glover of the police department's violent crimes branch, which is handling the investigation.

Meanwhile, the other two assailants grabbed Senitt, stabbed him and slashed his throat.

As Senitt lay dying, the three men fled with the woman's purse. The woman ran onto Q Street, flagged down a taxi and begged for help.

"She came in the street and was yelling, 'Stop! I need help! We got robbed!' " said taxi driver Ayalew Haile, who returned to Georgetown yesterday to retrieve his cab, which was trapped behind police tape for much of the day. "I stopped because you have to help someone. My passenger called the police for her."

Police received the 911 call at 2:18 a.m. and responded with paramedics almost immediately. They found several people trying to help Senitt, Glover said, "though those efforts were fruitless." Senitt's body was taken to the medical examiner's office.

The woman, a former babysitter for developer Herb Miller, lives in Miller's basement apartment. She was too upset to talk to reporters[snip].
A number of things don't add up. First, why would the attacker try to pull off the woman's clothes, DECLARE that he's about to rape her, yet suddenly stop and only take her purse? And how is it that in the process, this woman miraculously 'didn't get hurt?'

And as she runs for help, she screams 'we've been robbed' and not 'they slit his throat!' or 'call an ambulance!'

So, who is Alan Senitt and who might want him dead?
"He was a serious contender for mainstream political life. He was up and coming. He would have been brilliant, I'm sure of it," said Danny Stone director of the Co-Existence Trust, an organization which Mr Senitt was previously director of and which worked towards dialogue between Jews and Muslims.
We may never know whether this murder was random or politically motivated and orchestrated to blend into a landscape littered with crime. But one thing is sure - these are very dangerous times.

I used to think (many years ago) that this kind of thing was just bad journalists misquoting things. But... these days I don't trust them at all. Pretty fishy if you ask me.

I wish I had time to do more research. Maybe someone will find this post and chime in.

I just came across the answer to my question - a resounding TARGETTED KILLING!

Top Israeli Spy Murdered In US As American Faction Split Hits UK With Murder Of Enron Banker

By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Russian Subscribers

Russian Intelligence sources are reporting today that the growing split between the Coup and Counter-Coup Forces in the United States has grown in ferocity with another ‘tit-for-tat’ murders of ‘key players’ in this growing, and dangerous, ‘secret war to contain war’ strategy currently being employed between not only the US factions, but Israel as well.

Reports from London are showing that one of the Royal Bank of Scotland's key officers, and a ‘key’ player in the American Enron scandal that financed the Bush Families efforts to wrest their nation from Israeli control, Neil Coulbeck, has been murdered, and as we can read as reported by the BBC News Service in their article titled "Enron witness found dead in park", and which says:

"A body found in east London parkland has been identified as a banker who was questioned by the FBI about the Enron fraud case, sources have told the BBC. However, police say they are keeping an open mind about whether the death of Neil Coulbeck is linked to Enron case. Mr Coulbeck, whose body was found in Chingford on Tuesday, worked for the Royal Bank of Scotland."

FSB sources report that the murder of Mr. Coulbeck was in retaliation for the murder of a top Israeli Spy sent from England to the United States, and as we can read as reported by the Jewish Philanthropies News Service in their article titled "Mugging in Washington Robs Jewish World of Young Leader", and which says:

"The killers who took Alan Senitt's life robbed the Jewish world of a young leader dedicated to Jewish survival and coexistence with others, his friends, colleagues and family said. Senitt, 27, a rising star in British communal life and Labor Party politics, was stabbed to death in Washington while escorting a young woman friend home before dawn Sunday.

Senitt emerged as an eloquent spokesman for Britain's Jews and on behalf of Israel as chairman of the Union of Jewish Students in the early part of the decade, a time when the intifada was raging and Israel was taking a drubbing in British public opinion. Leaving the Union of Jewish Students post in 2003, he urged Jewish students to speak as "one community, one voice, one people," and signed his open letter, "Proud to be a Zionist, proud to be a Jew.

Around 2:30 a.m. on Sunday, three men brandishing a gun and a knife attacked Senitt and the woman he was accompanying outside her apartment in a tony Georgetown neighborhood. Senitt was stabbed and his throat was slit while the woman staggered away alive. The assailants fled in a waiting getaway vehicle."

These reports state that the method of killing the Israeli spy, by the slitting of his throat, has long been a ‘trademark’ of the American CIA, and which is now under the firm control of the United States Military Forces, and which appears determined to not allow a resurgence of Israeli spying within the United States, and which the murdered Israeli spy was sent to America to oversee. Of these Israeli student spies we can read as reported by the American AntiWar.Com News Service:

"In January 2001, the security branch of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency began to receive a number of peculiar reports from DEA field offices across the country. According to the reports, young Israelis claiming to be art students and offering artwork for sale had been attempting to penetrate DEA offices for over a year. The Israelis had also attempted to penetrate the offices of other law enforcement and Department of Defense agencies. Strangest of all, the "students" had visited the homes of numerous DEA officers and other senior federal officials.

As a pattern slowly emerged, the DEA appeared to have been targeted in what it called an "organized intelligence gathering activity."

Reports of the mysterious Israelis with an inexplicable interest in peddling art to G-men came in from more than 40 U.S. cities and continued throughout the first six months of 2001. Agents of the DEA, ATF, Air Force, Secret Service, FBI, and U.S. Marshals Service documented some 130 separate incidents of "art student" encounters. Some of the Israelis were observed diagramming the inside of federal buildings. Some were found carrying photographs they had taken of federal agents. One was discovered with a computer printout in his luggage that referred to "DEA groups."

In some cases, the Israelis visited locations not known to the public -- areas without street addresses, for example, or DEA offices not identified as such -- leading authorities to suspect that information had been gathered from prior surveillance or perhaps electronically, from credit cards and other sources. One Israeli was discovered holding banking receipts for substantial sums of money, close to $180,000 in withdrawals and deposits over a two-month period. A number of the Israelis resided for a period of time in Hollywood, Fla. -- the small city where Mohammed Atta and three terrorist comrades lived for a time before Sept. 11."

These events are also coinciding with the growing crisis in the Middle East as Israel prepares another front in their war against their Islamic neighbors, and which we can read as reported by the Reuters News Service in their article titled "Israelis shaken as Hizbollah raid adds to fears", and which says:

"Shaken Israelis voiced anger and frustration at growing violence on Wednesday after Lebanese Hizbollah guerrillas seized two soldiers and killed up to seven. The attack has opened a second battle front for the Jewish state as it wages an offensive in the Gaza Strip to try to recover a captured soldier, plunging the region into the worst bloodshed since the height of a Palestinian uprising."

The American President, currently in route to Russia for his meetings with President Putin and other World Leaders, appears to be intent on not involving itself with Israel in this latest escalation of Middle East tension, and indeed by some accounts appears to be taking the same course as the American President Nixon did during 1973 Yom Kippur War, and who like the present American President was issued strong warnings by Russia.

This course of action by the American President is likewise not surprising given the ascendancy in his circle of power of Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, and who is the most knowledgeable US Diplomat of Russian actions, and was in fact tutored by both former American Presidents Reagan and Nixon.

The rise to power of Secretary Rice within the American Military Leadership also signals a collapse of power to the American Vice President Cheney and the American Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld, and whose power-block within the American Military Leadership has been referred to as Neo-Cons.

What remains to be known, however, in this titanic struggle currently underway in the United States, between its factions, is Israel’s expected response, and which these reports warn will be ‘severe’ should the American President not widen the Middle East war to include both Syria and Iran.
