OSU jihadi: “I’m a Muslim, it’s not what the media portrays me to be”

Unfortunately, yet another terrorist attack has taken lace on domestic soil. This time it happened when a Muslim Somali refugee attacked campus students at Ohio State University. The man who committed these terrible acts is known as Abdul Razak Artan. He had recently written a piece for the Ohio State University paper The Lantern. His piece was titled, “Humans of Ohio State.”

He played the victim and discussed why he was so “scared and nervous” about his Islamic prayers in public stating,

“I just transferred from Columbus State. We had prayer rooms, like actual rooms where we could go to pray because we Muslims have to pray five times a day. There’s Fajr, which is early in the morning, at dawn. Then Zuhr during the daytime, then Asr in the evening, like right about now.

And then Maghrib, which is like right at sunset and then Isha at night. I wanted to pray Asr. I mean, I’m new here. This is my first day. This place is huge, and I don’t even know where to pray. I wanted to pray in the open, but I was kind of scared with everything going on in the media.

I’m a Muslim, it’s not what the media portrays me to be. If people look at me, a Muslim praying, I don’t know what they’re going to think, what’s going to happen. But, I don’t blame them, it’s the media that put that picture in their heads so they’re just going to have it and it, it’s going to make them feel uncomfortable. I was kind of scared right now. But I just did it. I relied on God. I went over to the corner and just prayed.”

Artan was a student at Ohio State University and was reportedly in his third year, a junior. Allegedly he was studying logistic management. Well, it looks like they can not go back and ask him why people might be worried about his Muslim practices. They certainly have reason to be worried now.

Reports indicate he used a car to plow people down before stabbing them. Which is similar to what the terrorist in Nice, France did when he drove a large industrial truck down a street full of people their for a festival. But information is still forthcoming as more and more details are released to the public from law enforcement officials.

This is yet another example why President Obama’s policy of open borders and a more liberal refugee program are absolute failures. People clearly have reason to be worried. Now ISIS terrorists are infiltrating refugee groups to pervade American society and partake in planned terrorist attacks.

We all have to be a little more careful and a little more worried. Hopefully once President Elect Trump takes office we will have to worry about this much less.
