Despite several references to 'Allah' in his manifesto UC Merced officials insist Faisal Mohammad wasn't a terrorist
A two-page manifesto was found on the body of Faisal Mohammad, the University of California - Merced Muslim student who tried to bring the 'stabbing intifada' to the United States. Nevertheless, university officials bury their heads in the sand and insist that Mohammad was not a terrorist

Warnke said the document indicated Mohammad was upset after being
kicked out of a study group. His manifesto included a “detailed list” of
targets and plans to tie students to desks in an effort to lure police
into the room. From there, the computer science and engineering student
wanted to take the officer’s gun and shoot people.
The manifesto indicated Mohammad “intended to kill a lot of people,” authorities said, according to the Merced Sun-Star. Investigators had said night vision goggles, duct tape and zip tie had been found in his backpack.
The document also included several references to Allah, the sheriff
said. Warnke, however, stressed that there was “still nothing to
indicate” Mohammad’s Muslim religion had anything to do with his motive.
He compared the references made to Allah to a Christian making
references to Jesus before carrying out a life-changing decision.
University officials have also said that there is no evidence to
believe it was “in any way related to terrorism.” Instead, officials
continue to stress all signs point to a disgruntled student taking
extreme revenge on those he felt betrayed by.
Construction worker Bryon Price, hailed as a hero for preventing others form being injured in the attack, said that Mohammad “had a smile on his face” like he “was having fun” as he swung his 10-inch knife.
Sounds just like your normal, average student who got kicked out of a study group, right? What could go wrong?
