The Media (D) is bending over BACKWARDS to not pin criminal acts on Islamic motivation…. even with crystal-clear evidence like THIS!
It should have been obvious with inital reports where he asked people if they were Muslim before knifing them.
But now we have this, too:
Authorities are investigating the stabbing of nine people inside a Minnesota mall on Saturday night as a potential act of terrorism after a news agency linked to the Islamic State militant group claimed that the attacker was “a soldier of the Islamic State.”
A little more detail:
This is the man said to be responsible for the stabbing of nine people in Minnesota in an attack that ISIS has claimed responsibility for.
Dahir A. Adan, 22, who was identified by his father to the Minnesota Star Tribune, was said to be a ‘soldier of the Islamic state’, according to an ISIS-linked news agency.
A black and white photo from Adan’s Facebook and reported by local media put a face to the name for the first time since Saturday night’s attack.
According to CNN, earlier this year nine Somali-Minnesotans were convicted or pleaded guilty in a plot to travel to Syria and join ISIS.
In previous years, a group of men left to join Al-Shabaab, a group which seeks to turn Somali into an Islamist state, CNN reported.
‘We still don’t have anything substantive that would suggest anything more than what we know already, which is this was a lone attacker and right now, we’re trying to get to the bottom of his motivations,’ St. Cloud Police Chief William Blair Anderson told CNN.
The FBI has labeled the attack a ‘potential act of terrorism’. …. ‘Potential’
If Saturday’s stabbings are ultimately deemed a terrorist act, it would be the first carried out by a Somali on US soil, said Karen Greenburg, director of the Center on National Security at Fordham University School of Law.
