I read an article recently that said, "Earl Krugel was a terrorist.
As bad as any suicide bomber.
He was willing to kill women and children..."
This is not true.
Earl Krugel would never harm women or children or anyone else, except in defense of someone unable to defend themselves.Earl Krugel was convicted of planning to place a small explosive device in a mosque and a congressman's office.
According to the FBI it was going to be done at night when no one was present.
It was going to be a message.
"Stop beating up Jewish kids."
Recently some Jewish students had been beaten by Arab youths, and many people felt that the Jewish Community was not being protected.
No one was to be hurt.
No one was hurt.
I knew Earl Krugel, he was a kind man, intelligent and loving, wise and very human.
Earl controlled whatever fear a man would have, being a Jew and plunged, unprotected by the authorities, into one of the world's most brutal penal institutions, and then, with the press buzzing, sent to a prison in Phoenix that was run by the Aryan Nations and other White Power groups.
For two year Earl Krugel survived as a man with his head high in the sordid confines of the Federal Detention Center in L.A.
Once he was shipped to Phoenix, this holding pen for hundreds of Muslims and Nazis, unprotected, his fate was just a matter of time.
He was murdered from behind by a coward.
He was murdered in a way that was unknown to Earl.
Because, you see, Earl Leslie Krugel was indeed a fighter, but he was not a murderer.
