Place? Travis AFB. Action? Suicide. Method? Propane and Gasoline. Motive? Mystery.

We reported in last night’s news feed that a man named Hafiz Kazi crashed a vehicle loaded with gasoline cans and propane tanks into Travis Air Force Base in California yesterday, killing himself. Mr. Kazi had apparently locked the doors of his van and then ignited some of the flammables before making his suicide run.

This morning’s media reports about the incident emphasized that investigators had no clue as to what Mr. Kazi’s motive might have been. They are variously stumped, mystified, perplexed, baffled, and at a loss. Sometimes people do bizarre things like fill their vehicles up with explosives and ram them into military bases, and you just can’t figure out why.

The fact that Hafiz Kazi was originally from India, rather than some more obviously Muslim utopia such as Pakistan or Yemen, makes the official perplexity that much easier. Investigators “don’t have any evidence of any religious affiliation”. He’s Indian, so he’s probably a Hindu, or a Sikh, or maybe even a Buddhist, right?

Wrong. I can identify Mr. Kazi as a Muslim with complete assurance, due to his first name. Hafiz or hafez is a designation used by Muslims to identify a man who has memorized the Koran. No non-Muslim would be called “Hafiz”. And I doubt any Muslim who converted to another religion would retain the name.

This official bewilderment is more than just a combination of stupidity and ignorance. It is deliberate misdirection (kitman), drawing attention away from the Religion of Peace for as long as possible, until the charade can no longer be maintained.

In this case, it’s obvious that none of the media writers knows the meaning of hafiz, or they never would have bothered.

Here’s what CBS News had to say about the mysterious case. They’re stumped — stumped, I tell you!

Travis AFB explosion: No known terror link in fiery van crash, FBI says

ROSEVILLE, Calif. — Investigators said Friday that they are stumped as to why a man who emigrated 25 years ago from India drove a flaming minivan full of propane tanks and gasoline cans through the main gate of a major Northern California Air Force Base this week, but see no evidence of terrorism. FBI Special Agent in Charge Sean Ragan on Friday said the driver, Hafiz Kazi, was dead when authorities reached the wreck, CBS Sacramento reports.

Kazi, 51, no known links to terrorism, did not leave behind a manifesto or any threats or explanation, and a video found on a cellphone provided no clue.

“Why did this individual end up at the front gate of Travis Air Base on fire and now deceased? We don’t have the answers to that,” Ragan said. Investigators know of no one else associated with the incident nor any threats to air base or the community.

Air Force gate personnel initially thought they were dealing with a vehicle accident when Kazi crashed and they realized he was on fire. No shots were fired as he entered the base, and it was only after the fire was out and they broke through the locked minivan doors to aid Kazi that they realized it was loaded with five propane tanks, three gallon-size gasoline cans and several cigarette lighters, Ragan said. Also found was a gym bag with personal effects and three cellphones.

Kazi’s body was so badly burned that he had to be identified by fingerprints. Ragan said he is a native of India who has lived in the United States since 1993 and was a permanent legal resident. Kazi never served in the military and has no known ties to the air base, he said.

“We know what happened,” Ragan said. “Now the question is why. Why was he there? What led him there? And we don’t know the answers to that, quite frankly. So the investigation that we’re doing right now is trying to piece together his life, trying to piece together what led up to this event, and attempt to determine why he was there and why he had those items in his vehicle… They will continue at it until we get the answers.”

Ragan said they have been unable to find any of Kazi’s family living in the United States. A family member in India has been notified of Kazi’s death, Ragan said. He said Kazi appeared to work as a cab driver in the past, but that investigators haven’t determined if he was currently employed. It’s not clear if he owned the minivan.

“We don’t have any evidence of any religious affiliation or anything at this point,” Ragan said. “As of right now, we know of no other associates.”

  1. I live in CA and first read about this attack in CA last night when searching for news about yesterday’s terrorist attacks in France.

    Suicide car bomber. Van packed with improvised explosives. Must be Kandahar, right? Baghdad? Peshawar? Nope, an Air Force base in CA.

    Coming soon to a roadside near you. IEDs.

  2. The wannabe Saudi King was around and insulting Islam with terror accusations isn’t what you do when your Elites’ patron and best business buddy is in da house.

  3. The LA Times also white-washed this incident. I wrote the paper and the journalist to admonish them for their cover-up. The journalist wrote back that the article was based on what the FBI said. Since when, I asked, must newspapers rely only on what they are fed by the FBI. Journalists are supposed to dig into stories and connect the dots. Here are some of the verifiable “dots” that the article completely avoided:

    1. It wasn’t just an “explosion,” but rather a deliberate terror attack, where the perpetrator stormed the entrance to a military airbase and carried three gas containers, two cans of gasoline, and lighters. He deliberately lit those to cause as much damage as possible.

    2. No one carries that many inflammables, even to a neighborhood barbeque without a terror motive.

    3. The article emphasized that the terrorist was a legal permanent resident, but that is not as significant as his origin. Most of the Islamic terror attacks in the United States are perpetrated by immigrants from Muslim countries. India has 172 million Muslims, or 14% of the population.

    4. Not the LA Times, but most of your readers could see the similarity between this terror attack and the attempted attack on Times Square, New York, on May 1, 2010, where a Muslim Pakistani immigrant named Faisal Shahzad loaded his minivan with three propane tanks and two 5-gallon tanks of gasoline plus other explosives. (Sound familiar?) Shahzad was also a “legal permanent resident.” He pleaded guilty and got life in prison for his attempted terror attack.

    5. Muslim names in India and Pakistan often reflect the aspirations the parents have for their child, and they are in Arabic. Faisal means “trend-setter.” Hafiz means “guardian” or “memorizer”, depending on the context, and is a term used by Muslims for someone who has completely memorized the Quran. One of the final commands in the Quran says, “You shall prepare for them all the power you can muster, and all the equipment you can mobilize, that you may frighten the enemies of GOD, your enemies, as well as others who are not known to you; GOD knows them. Whatever you spend in the cause of GOD will be repaid to you generously, without the least injustice.” (Surah 8:60 – Rashad Khalifa translation)

    The LA Times journalists are either lazy or blinded by political correctness to the point of being useless.

    • You do have command of the pertinent facts, and a great delivery. I’m envious, way to go.

      • I am still trying to figure out the regulation or statute that says that you are NOT a terrorist if you are NOT carrying on your person at the time of the attack an official and authentic “Terrorist Card”. How does one obtain one and how much do the various terrorist groups charge for membership? Are there 1-month, 3-month, or deluxe 1-year “Companions of Mohammad” memberships (pro-rated to the time of your death as a shahid)?? Are they recognized as lawful ID when registering to vote or entering strip clubs to see Western women?

    • What a coinkedink, no? I suppose the authorities are musing over the motive too?

    • But how does one really know the real numbers of their population with the sharing of 8 common first and last names and the endemic first-cousin marriages that lead to only 4 physiogmic facial archetypes? The Census workers might just be double or triple-counting!!

  4. India has the third largest Muslim population of any country (approx 187 million – 2017 est.)

  5. Lay off the poor guy, he’s just a dreamer. If he were still around Pelosi would now be washing his feet.

  6. Travil AFB has not strong fence or gate. Interesting dereliction of duty. I am sure the weak security is a dictate from the Pentagon or Congress.The base commander will be blame, however.

  7. Truth and the Lame-stream Media have no relationship whatsoever. What matters to the Media is making sure that you are kept uninformed, misinformed and docile until it is too late.

  8. As an Indian Hindu, I have something to say to american friends here.

    We have millions of muslims here, they are unwanted leftovers of ,1 million dead, blood soaked partition of India. Even after more than 95% of them voting for creation of Pakistan in 1946 elections, they did not leave India. They did not leave for Islamic Pakistan because they wanted to stay here and reap the benefits of infidels peace and progressive culture, further, they also had plans to repeat the demographic aggression over a hundred year time period again. We hindus have been thousand year victims of Islam. We suffer from both external as well as internal terrorism at the hands of them. It saddens me to see, that american media is saying its an Indian origin man. No he is not. His real identity is Muslim! We Hindus do not consider them as a part of our nation or society or culture. They are citizens of India on paper only. That too, because left wing governments allowed them to stay post 1947 and gave them citizenship privileges.

    I feel sorry for what this miserable excuse of a human being has done in USA and what kind of stain he has tried to put on the Indian nationality. My american brothers, you have all the right to defend yourself from this rabid lot. But please, do not mistake us Hindus as one of them. Tell your media to identify him as a muslim and not an Indian.

    If we Hindus had our way, we would make entire Indian subcontinent completely Islam free.

    • In fact, that was supposed to be the point of Partition…Muslims were supposed to have their own section and leave India alone. But that’s not the reality for Islam.

    • We should start being assertive and change questions. In several occasions I said to my family ‘Non moslems should stop asking why moslems do this and that’s. They should start thinking how we can unite and stop ‘mslms’.

  9. I do not understand the police claim that they do not know the “why” of this incident. It is so obvious they must have thought of it and rejected it as too obvious. The driver was delivering a load of leaky propane tanks, leaky gasoline cans, and defective cigarette lighters to the base and did not have time to stop at the gate before all of the propane and gasoline leaked out. If the propane and gasoline containers were empty when he delivered them he would not be paid. There – now we know the “why.” Just ignore that crazy jihad theory and go back to sleep.
