Al Qaeda-Linked Group Likely Behind Killing of American Teacher in Yemen

This is tragic. Welcome to an ideology that doesn't believe in a First Amendment. The AP reports:

Motorcycle-riding gunmen linked to al Qaeda shot and killed an American teacher in the Yemeni city of Taiz on Sunday ...

A police source in Taiz said a gunman riding on the motorcycle driven by an accomplice shot a U.S. English language teacher who was also deputy director of a language school, the Swedish Institute.

Officials from the institute identified the victim as Joel Shrun and said he was born in 1983.

The gunmen, who escaped after the attack, were believed to be linked to al Qaeda, the police source said. A group affiliated with the militant network claimed responsibility.

"This operation comes as a response to the campaign of Christian proselytizing that the West has launched against Muslims," an unidentified person said in a text message to journalists, claiming responsibility on behalf of the al Qaeda-linked Ansar al-Sharia (Partisans of Islamic Law).

Islamic militants often accuse Western aid groups of proselytizing.

For Al Qaeda, there is no way but their way. Their ideology will always be at odds with the American mindset of freedom of speech, of religion. It was simply by being American that we were attacked on 9/11. We don't have to do anything to provoke their anger, except simply exist.
