A Fiery New Year’s in Seattle

On New Year’s Eve an arsonist poured gasoline down a stairway in the “Neighbours” gay nightclub in Seattle and set it on fire. About 700 people were in the club at the time of the incident, and all were fortunate to escape without injury.

The club’s management provided police with a surveillance video, and then later released it to the media. A neighbor of the suspected arsonist recognized him in the video, and notified police. Last Saturday the suspect, Musab Masmari, was arrested while on his way to the airport in Seattle.

The MSM reports don’t list the full name of the alleged arsonist, but On Top Magazine gives it as Musab Mohamed Masmari. This provides the incident with a Mohammed Coefficient of 100%.

Here’s a news video about the case from King 5 TV in Seattle:

Interestingly enough, back in 2011 — when Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State — Musab Mohamed Masmari acted as a “cultural ambassador” for a Seattle arts center when Iraqi journalists visited the city under the auspices of the State Department:

Iraqi Journalists visit 911 Media Arts Center

A delegation of Iraqi journalists and media professionals visited 911 Media Arts Center’s offices yesterday morning as part of an ongoing program through the World Affairs Council and the US Department of State’s International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP). During the meeting 911 Media director Steven Vroom presented the workings of the organization to the group and fielded questions via two Arabic translators.


Seattle resident Musab Masmari, a Libyan/US citizen, was also in attendance to act as a cultural ambassador on behalf of 911 Media Arts Center for the Arabic speaking visitors.

The Muslim Issue also reports that Mr. Masmari originally hails from Benghazi.

Below is the accompanying news article from King TV:

Suspect arrested in arson at Neighbours nightclub

Seattle Police arrested 30-year-old Musab Masmari Saturday morning in connection with the arson at Neighbours nightclub on January 1.

Police took Masmari into custody as he was en route to the airport.

Police say following the arrest, Masmari was interviewed by detectives and later booked into the King County Jail for Investigation of Arson.

It was just after midnight on New Year’s Eve while nearly 700 people crammed into Neighbours for a celebration when customers noticed the staircase at the iconic gay club was on fire.

Management at the iconic gay club in Capitol Hill later discovered a gasoline container near the stairs.

No one was injured.

Neighbours released surveillance video that police believe shows Masmari as he walks into the club.

The video was captured around the time of the countdown to midnight on New Year’s Eve. Masmari is carrying something in his hand.

The bar later found a container of gasoline at the top of a staircase. According to SPD, Masmari doused the staircase with fuel and set it on fire.

Detectives worked on the case with the Joint Terrorism Task Force.

A woman who lived next door to Masmari for three years calls him erratic and violent.

“We’re scared of him,” she said. “He yells and throws things.”

She asked not to be identified for fear of retaliation, still horrified by her neighbor’s arrest. She called police several weeks ago when she saw his face in surveillance video on the news.

“I looked at the video and it was clearly him,” she said. “Terrified? Yes.”

“I feel that the streets are a little bit safer tonight,” said Neighbours Spokesman Shaun Knittel. “Why do 750 people have to potentially pay for your ideals, your beliefs, your anger?”

It’s a question that’s haunted Knittel for a month.

Police have not yet released a motive for the arson, but expect more details to surface when Masmari faces a judge for the first time in court.

  1. This muslim murdering [fellow with despicable characteristics]!!!

    Look at him in the video, hes got the beard and all.

    There are 1.5 billion of these killers planning to murder us all worldwide!
    Are we to sit here and let them breed us out if our own countrys, and then murder us????

    These muslim killers are flooding into mainland europe freely because the people who have somehow got elected as our leaders are betraying us day in dayout!!

    The leftist marxists who are engineering the
    Is genocide of the native european peoples, we must [intemperate proposals of actions directed against progressive leaders] Who are supporting muslims, under the guise of multi culuralism, when in reality the leftists are manipulating muslims as there proxy henchmen to subdue us, rape and kill us!!

    When this time bomb of betrayal, ethnic and religeous hatred ignites there is going to one hell of a war!!!

    It will make hitlers nazi germans look like a bunch of fairys at tea party.

    Ban islam now!
    Ban the koran!
    [intemperate proposals of actions directed against progressive leaders], directly and indirectly responsible for flooding our countrys and europe with muslims and third world bogus asylum seekers in order to wipe out the indidgenous native peoples of europe and the west!
    People like, obama, cameron, straw, ashton, barriso, schultz, van rompoy, merkel, blair, the 2 millibands and also the heads of the uk police forces, must be [intemperate proposals of actions directed against progressive leaders].


    • Tip of the iceberg billions and billions of cash being siphoned by corrupt euro peoples. Importing endless millions of muslim trash. You have to assume that the same insanity exists at all the other levels of government as well. While Hilary is planning the Islamic Village in the US Eurotown is fracturing in the wrong direction with the outlook very good for conflict with the new muslim Nazis. Islam’s infrastructure of mosques and skilled operatives is almost complete especially with all the experienced trainers and organizers on the way from every muslim hellhole in the world.

  2. I guess the DOJ is right on this. They should have a highly paid lawyer in place soon…….

    to defend mahomet masmari


  3. Well that explains why a Google search shows no coverage by mainstream press outlets.

    Imagine the months of homophobia hysterics if he had been a white Christian.

  4. Motive?? We do not need no stinkin’ motive…. the Koran orders muslims to kill homosexuals and I bet this guy INTENDED to kill the 700+ in the night club!


    • Actually, it’s not the Koran that orders Muslims to kill homosexuals — it is the hadiths. We should know that the hadiths are as important to Muslims, if not more so, than the Koran, since it’s the words of Mohammed and is the basis for Sharia law.

      One of the most authorative writers of tafsir (exegesis of the Koran), Ibn Kathir, quotes Abu Dawud, one of the top four writers of hadith, as recording that Muhammad said about homosexuals:

      “Whoever is found doing the act of the people of Lut, then kill them; the doer and the one it is done to.”

      The “Lut” referred to is the Arabic rendering of the Biblical “Lot”: the “act” involved here is clear both from the Koran and Ibn Kathir’s exegesis of it to be homosexuality.

      Ibn Kathir also notes that in addition to Abu Dawud, other Muslim scholars — Imam Ahmad, At-Tirmidhi, and Ibn Majah — also recorded this Hadith.

  5. Another bright, burning day, brought to you by a man from a bright, burning city!
    Islam is profane.

  6. “Love thy Neighbours as thyself….” The amorphous they (!) keep telling us that Islam has a golden rule!

    Clearly, Musab Mohamed Masmari picked the wrong state. If he blew up a building in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the DHS would have destroyed the evidence and suppressed his name….

    “Seattle resident Musab Masmari, a Libyan/US citizen….”

    That says it all: Libyan/US citizen. Allowing – neigh encouraging – neigh FUNDING – deeply divided loyalties and unequal cultures equals premeditated arson of the West.

  7. Yes if a white Christian male did this, it would on the news 7×24. The Gay activist groups along with cultural Marxists of the Left would be demanding the arsonist’s head on a platter.

    But since a 3rd worlder did it, well it’s okay so to speak.

    However, if I were gay, I’d really think hard about this incident because it says a lot about their boss class in GLAAD and the Lefties in government and the media and none of it good. Namely they will throw their own under the bus as long as they can implement their agenda.

    The rank and file are expendable. The old Soviet big shots even had a label for these people – ‘useful idiots’.

    That said, suppose the arson attempt was successful and many clubbers died in the fire. The MSM would simply trot out some of their professional hand wringers and excuse mongers and systematically white wash the whole notion of jihad like they did for the Boston bombing case. You’d hear pablum from the MSM ‘tragic but we must move on’, etc. Magazines like Rolling Stones would do a puff piece on the bomber, Salon would simply make the muzzie fire ghoul a confused and angry saint struggling for his place in America while condemning Christians across the country.

    Inside 6 months the whole incident would be a distant memory.
