Dahir Adan, a Muslim migrant in Minnesota, went on a stabbing Jihad a couple of weeks ago at a mall there. He was dressed in a private security uniform and stabbed ten people. He asked them if they were Muslim before attacking them and was yelling, “Alahu Akbar!” This was on September 17th. We have seen these types of attacks before where being able to cite the Quran or say you are Muslim… convincingly… is the only thing that saves your life. It is signature Jihad. We have seen these types of attacks at the Oberoi Trident hotel, the Taj Mahal Palace & Tower in Mumbai, at the Westgate in Nairobi, the beach resort in Tunisia, the gas complex attack in Algeria, etc.
The authorities are saying that Adan was a recent convert to Islam. That may or may not be the case, but I’m fairly certain he had help being radicalized. He was withdrawn and went from being a great student in college to flunking out very quickly. He stopped playing video games and basketball… he started reprimanding female relatives telling them they should be more observant of Islamic law. He talked about Islam incessantly. Then he went on an attempted killing spree. He was shot and killed on the scene by an off-duty police officer, who was thankfully armed.
From BizPac Review:
Authorities have released the shocking raw video of Minnesota mall attacker, Muslim Dahir Adan, as he ran through the shops stabbing 10 people in September.
Police and the FBI have also released some of the details of their investigation into the last year of Adan’s life as he became increasingly radicalized into extreme Islam. They note he withdrew from his family and friends, stopped doing the normal things he liked to do (like playing basketball and video games) and began to ramble incessantly about Islam.
The FBI also noted that he went from being a high achieving college student to flunking out “almost over night” as he began to devote more and more time to Islam.
“The totality of Dahir Adan’s behavior and the actions suggest he may have been radicalized either with the influence of others or on his own,” FBI Special Agent Rick Thornton said.
This is new, disturbing video of the encounter. I’m surprised he didn’t actually pull off killing someone. He sure tried. He was dressed as a security guard, so he was able to get much closer to people without arousing suspicion. Adan’s family’s attorney swears the family never noticed his radicalization. I highly doubt that. Obama is probably very displeased with the release of these videos and details. It makes Islam ‘look bad’.
These videos were released in an unusual press conference. The matter is still being investigated and is ongoing. Authorities don’t usually do that. I guess they want to appear to be on top of the situation here. They also want to halt various conspiracy theories circulating in the Minnesota Somali community and perpetuated by Black Lives Matter groups. The family has denied Adan was mentally ill – I believe that… I think he was fully cognizant of what he was doing. It was for Allah. ISIS has taken credit for this attack and I believe that as well.
