Minnesota has gone all out to welcome Somali Muslims. They are paying a heavy price for their P.C. blindness.
The Minnesota mall attacker who wounded nine people Saturday night with a knife before being shot dead by police, reportedly went around asking shoppers if they were Muslim and stabbed those who said they were not.
CBS News reports that a federal law enforcement source shared details behind the attack at Crossroads Center mall in St. Cloud, believed to have been carried out by Dahir A. Adan, a 22-year-old college student.
The nine victims, which include seven men, a woman, and a 15-year-old girl, were treated for non-life-threatening wounds at local hospitals, but by Sunday evening six of them were released.
CNN reported that while investigators are still trying to establish the exact motive for the attack, the Islamic State terror group in Iraq and Syria has hailed the incident, calling Adan a “soldier of the Islamic State.”
“We still don’t have anything substantive that would suggest anything more than what we know already, which is this was a lone attacker,” St. Cloud Police Chief William Blair Anderson said.
“And right now, we’re trying to get to the bottom of his motivations.”
The FBI has called the attack “a potential act of terrorism,” while Anderson admitted that Adan made at least one reference to Allah.
And here we go again…Yesterday:
Two men were stabbed Sunday night at the Mall of America in Minnesota in what police are claiming was an attempted theft.
Police identified the stabbing suspect as 20-year-old Mahad Abdiaziz Abdirahaman.
“The initial investigation has revealed that one of the victims returned to the dressing room after trying on clothing and found the suspect attempting to steal his personal property,” Bloomington Police said in a press release. “A confrontation ensued and the suspect pulled a knife and stabbed the victim. The second victim, who is related to the first, heard the confrontation and intervened and in doing so was also stabbed. The suspect received minor injuries from the victims while they disarmed him.”
“Mahad Abdiaziz Abdirahaman, 20 years old from Minneapolis, is being held on 2 counts of 1st Degree Assault,” Bloomington Police said.
