While liberal politicians hem & haw whether the stabbing attack that left 8 civilians wounded at a Minnesota mall was terrorism, ISIS made clear that the attacker was indeed one of theirs.
The attack took place around 8 pm on Saturday at the Crossroads Center Mall in St. Cloud, Minnesota. The attacker was wearing a security uniform. An off-duty police officer shot and killed the terrorist.
Reuters reported that,
“An Islamic State supporter carried out the stabbing attack that wounded at least eight people at a mall in the U.S. state of Minnesota on Saturday, the militant group’s Amaq news agency said.
‘The executor of the stabbing attacks in Minnesota yesterday was a soldier of the Islamic State and carried out the operation in response to calls to target the citizens of countries belonging to the crusader coalition,’ Amaq said in a statement.”
CNN also carried the story,
“The man who stabbed nine people at a Minnesota mall Saturday before being shot dead by an off-duty police officer was a “soldier of the Islamic state,” according to an ISIS-linked news agency.”
“The statement posted online Sunday by the Amaq agency follows a pattern of ISIS-related media claiming responsibility for what appear to be the acts of individuals across Europe in the past few months.”
The attacker is reported to have shouted Allahu Akbar after entering the Minnesota mall and stabbing people at random. He is also reported to have asked one victim if he was Muslim before stabbing him.
The eight victims were all transported to area hospitals and are expected to survive.
The attack comes on the heels of a bomb being detonated at a Marine Corps race in New Jersey, a Muslim man attacking New York police with a meat cleaver, and a bomb exploding in Chelsea, Manhattan that injured 29 civilians on Saturday.
The attacks will most likely put a nail in Hillary Clinton’s campaign coffin as she worked with the Obama administration to destabilize the Middle East during the “Arab Spring” which led to the rise of ISIS. Say hello to your next president, Donald Trump…. Thank God.
