A Homegrown Buckeye Terrorist
Another surprise. The homicidal maniac who went on a rampage at Ohio State turns out to be one Abdul Razak Ali Artan, an 18-year-old Somali Muslim. No one knows why he did it. NBC has informed us that "a senior law enforcement official said authorities are a "long way" from pinpointing a motive for the Monday morning attack, which sent 11 people to the hospital. Apparently irrelevant are the the young man's complaints against America for the persecution of Muslims in Burma. Yes, Burma. Why didn’t he go to Burma to kill the enemies of his religion? Perhaps because that would have required a bit of initiative, and the Burmese authorities are not the gentlest people in the world.
Abdul Razak Ali Artan was not, it appears, fond of the country that had given shelter to his family and showered the blessings of the welfare state upon them. At OSU, he complained, Christian taxpayers had not even provided Muslim students with places for Islamic prayer. Why didn’t he go back to beautiful Mogadishu or whatever hellhole his family came from? That’s an easy one. He would have to be on his own. The harder question to answer is why the US government, working hand in glove with pseudo-Christian charities, continues to import Somali Muslims, who are among the most eager recruits for Islamic terrorist organizations.
A great deal of time is going to be wasted trying to figure out why Abdul Razak Ali Artan chose to attack people he had never met. We know why, because he told the world in a a tweet: “If you want us Muslims to stop carrying out lone wolf attacks, then make peace with ‘Dawla in al sham.’ Make a pact or treaty with them where you promise to leave them along, you and your fellow apostate allies. By Allah, we will not let you sleep unless you give peace to the Muslims. You will not celebrate or enjoy any holiday…. “
Put more simply, the young Muslim militant gave Americans the choice to submit to Muslims on their own terms—or die. If we do not submit, then we can expect more attacks, not just from people currently enrolled in some Islamic Boy Scout organization, but even “every single Muslim who disapproves of my actions is a sleeper cell, waiting for a signal.”
So, then, even though we let Somali Muslims into our country and treat them to luxuries unimagined in the horrifying nightmare they have made of their own countries, they will continue to attack us, so long as Muslims in Burma or Nigeria are "persecuted" by people that we Americans have no connection with. Muslims have a flexible definition of persecution, ranging from torture and murder to the refusal to impose sharia law on non-Muslims.
This is the essence of the terrorist mentality: You don’t like what people in group A are doing, so you kill or rob or rape or generally make life miserable for people in group B, who are more accessible. American leftists and members of the Black Lives Matter movement call it “civil disobedience,” but the only difference between the terrorist and the civil disobedient is that the terrorist is more willing to use violence as the first resort, while the civil disobedient is only willing to accept crime and violence as collateral damage for which they are not responsible. On the whole, I have more respect for the terrorist, though I should like to think that President Trump will soon permit us to show our respect at a distance of thousands of miles.
