Here we go again. As you slept comfortably in your bed last night there was another terrorist attack on U.S. soil. There is a total media blackout and no buzz on twitter, but a Somali man, Mohamed Barry, is a suspect in a machete attack on a restaurant in Columbus, Ohio. The Nazareth Restaurant is owned by an Israeli Christian so it’s not a surprise that it would be a target for jihad. Four people were hospitalized, one with critical injuries. Patrick Poole of PJ Media has more details.
And guess what? The FBI is investigating it as a “lone wolf” attack:
CBS News has identified the suspect as Mohammad Barry, however neither 10TV nor Columbus Police have confirmed the suspect’s name. CBS News also reports Barry has a Somali background and may have traveled to Dubai in 2012.
Law enforcement tells them the incident appears to be the type of “lone wolf terrorist attacks they’re trying to stop.”
As always, the FBI has declined to release the man’s immigration history. Senators Sessions and Cruz have already identified 113 Muslims involved in attempted terror plots on American soil and have demanded information on their immigration history. The Obama administration has thus far refused to cooperate.
It’s important to note that while everyone is focusing solely on Syrian refugees, we’ve actually had more problems from Somali Muslim immigrants. We’ve taken in over 130,000 refugees from Somalia since 1993 and Columbus likely has the second largest population of these refugees (behind Minneapolis). Even to the extent Republicans want to discuss the problem with refugees, they engage in political correctness in limiting the problem to Syria, as if it’s a problem limited to “ISIS infiltrators,” not a problem with the Islamic supremacist ideology endemic of many Muslims from numerous other countries as well.
