BLACKSBURG, Va. -- The suspected gunman in the Virginia Tech shooting rampage, Cho Seung-Hui, was a troubled 23-year-old senior from South Korea who investigators believe left an invective-filled note in his dorm room, sources say.
The note included a rambling list of grievances and ended with the words "Ismail Ax" in red ink on the inside of one of his arms.

Sounds like we may have a terrorist sympathizer.
The entire text of this letter had better f****** be released.
I hit those two words into the search box and what was the first link to come up? ROP. Whodathunkit.
Judaism has generally viewed Ishmael as wicked though repentant. Islamic tradition, however, has a very positive view of Ishmael, ascribing a larger role to Ishmael in comparison to the Bible and viewing him as a prophet and the son of sacrifice (according to certain early theologians whose ideas prevailed later). The Bahá'í writings consider him a lesser prophet.
Both Jewish and Islamic traditions consider Ishmael as the ancestor of Arab people
What two things do most mass murderers have in common?
A firearm AND PROZAC!
“Investigators believe Cho at some point had been taking medication for depression. “
Oh but lets forget that second thingie, we gotta focus on the GUNZ!!
Article also reveals that is highly unlikely there was a “second shooter” - same weapon was used to murder kids in the dormitory and to murder kids in the lecture hall across campus.
Ishmael was the son of Hagar. She planned to leave him in the desert to die but God told her no. I believe Ishmael is the patriarch of the muslim line.
Nothing to see here folks. Just another jilted lover lone nut. Move along please. Nothing to see here. Move along please.
I wonder why they do not release the ENTIRE note? Or perhaps they have and its not being reported?
According to recent FNC report, he set a couple of fires in his dorm room recently and he was depressed. Is this another one being treated with anti-depressants????
Ismail is the Arabic form of Ishmael.
Arabic God answered to the prayer;
Smile; Delight; Daring; Bold
Same as Ismael (name of a prophet);
Son of the Prophet Ibrahim (Abraham)
“Ismail Ax”? That “rambling list of grievances” should be an interesting read. ....if we ever see it.
Please...why makes this worse than it is. He was a mixed up, lonely disturbed kid. I will say, though, that the Korean culture is a very tough one for men. I’d like to know what his grades have been as well.
I worked for a large Korean company (you’d know it). 98% of the workers were Korean at the time. The way the older men treated the younger ones was outrageous in our terms. But they didn’t see it that way. Of course, I left because of the way I was treated. The other two women who worked there sued for sexual discrimination and they won. Alot. I wouldn’t join in the lawsuit because I believe that if you don’t like where you work, here in America you have the choice to work somewhere else.
The interesting thing is when I asked one of the young men how he “felt” about the way he was treated, he laughed at me. He said that the reason Americans felt so threatened when their bosses yelled at them was because, in America, there’s always that threat of being fired as well. In Korea, barring something incredibly bad, your job is safe. So they just take the abuse and when it’s their turn, they give it out the same way. It was not an environment I wanted to be a part of.,
Could be the info is a leak by someone who doesn’t have the actual note, but read at least part of it.
Ishmael is also a character in Moby Dick
and if the guy was an English major,
that’s another possibility.
I have no idea what this is...googled Ismail ax
Was he the BOYFRIEND of the first girl that was killed? If NOT then hmmmmmmmm?
