Stabbing intifada arrives in America?
For those of you who don't follow me yet, here's something I posted on my Twitter account last night.
I was only half serious when I said it.... But maybe I was onto something
Here’s Fox News, reporting this morning:
As authorities worked to establish a motive for the 18-year-old
college freshman who stabbed four people on a California campus
Wednesday, more disturbing details emerged about the attacker.
Faisal Mohammad, who was killed by University of California Merced
police, was described by at least one witness as smiling as he slashed
at victims, called a loner by a fellow dorm resident and drew praise
Thursday from a Twitter account associated with ISIS, which just last
week released a series of videos calling for lone wolf stabbing attacks.
“May Allah accept him,” read a tweet in Arabic from a Twitter
account that terrorism experts say has carried previous ISIS propaganda,
just minutes after Mohammad’s name was divulged by campus authorities.
Disturbing indeed, especially given the spate of stabbing attacks in
Israel, an emerging signature move of individual jihadists. There’s much
we still don’t know. It’s certainly possible that Mohammad had other
motives for his attack, and that ISIS was merely being opportunistic —
seizing on the attacker’s Muslim name to create the false appearance of
jihadist influence. However, I don’t necessarily trust either the Barack
“workplace violence” Obama administration or painfully
politically-correct California authorities to be entirely forthcoming
