ISIS: OSU Attacker Was Our Soldier
Media: Still No Motive in Knife Attack
John Kasich: We May Never Know the Attacker's Motive

ISIS has claimed the OSU attacker was one of their soldiers.

Here's how ABC "News" chose to headline a story about this:

ISIS Attempts to Claim OSU Attacker as Its 'Soldier'

I've italicized the words that are plainly editorializing, essentially saying ISIS is lying about it. Also note the sneer-quotes around "Soldier."

ABCNews blathers some more:

ISIS has repeatedly called on its followers to conduct attacks in the U.S., but no evidence has emerged publicly to suggest ISIS had foreknowledge of the OSU plot. The language used in this claim is similar to that used when previous so-called "lone wolves" were believed to have acted independently of the terrorist organization.

While in some previous cases it was later revealed that attackers had pledged allegiance to ISIS or its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, in a message posted on Facebook and believed to have been written by Artan, he did not mention ISIS. Instead, he aired more general grievances against American foreign policy.

"I can't take it anymore," he purportedly wrote in the post, which has been reviewed by ABC News and appeared on a page that has since been disabled. "America! Stop interfering with other countries, especially the Muslim Ummah. We are not weak. We are not weak, remember that."

The "Muslim Ummah" is the pan-national community of Muslims. In other words, it kinda-sorta means "The Caliphate," when a Caliphate is claimed to exist.

Guess who claims to have re-started the Caliphate? That's right, ISIS.

Meanwhile, something ABCNews "forgets" to mention is that he warned of "lone wolf" attacks -- which ISIS specifically called for -- if persecution of Islam did not stop. And also, praised Al Qaeda propagandist al-Awaki.

"If you want us Muslims to stop carrying lone wolf attacks, then make peace. We will not let you sleep unless you give peace to the Muslims" his FB post further said, ABC News reported.

Artan also praised Anwar Al-Awlaki, a radical American-born al-Qaida terrorist who was killed in 2011. Artan described Al-Awlaki as a "hero." ABC said Al-Awlaki's "propaganda has been linked to several domestic terrorist attacks in the years after his death."

I guess ABCNews is in the #FakeNews business now. Oh wait, they always were.

Meanwhile, #FakeRepublican liberal John Kasich, who is an Asshole, has opined that "We may never know" Artan's motivation in using a jihadi tactic (vehicle driving into crowd, "stabbing intifada" knife attack on random non-Muslims) after making numerous pro-Jihadi statements and jihadi-style declarations of aggrievements and threats that Muslims will rise in defense of their Ummah.

John Kasich, who is, as mentioned previously, an Asshole, is coming under fire for his pro-Somali-refugee-resettlement policy. Some are tweeting at him that these attacks are on his head (which is, as pointed out supra, an Asshole's head).

Others are pointing this out as well.

Columbus is home to the second-largest Somali-American community in the U.S. after Minneapolis.

And how did all the Somalis and other north Africans get in Columbus?

As WND has reported in a series of articles, the main route into the United States for Somali nationals is through the refugee resettlement program. The U.S government has since 1992 worked with the United Nations to permanently resettle more than 110,000 Somali refugees into dozens of U.S. cities, including Minneapolis, Columbus, San Diego, and smaller cities in Maine, Texas, Idaho, Washington, Georgia, Michigan, Colorado, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Texas.

More than 99 percent of Somali refugees are Sunni Muslims, and the FBI has confirmed that at least 40 young Somali men have left their adopted homeland since 2007 to join the ranks of foreign terrorist organizations including al-Shabab in Somalia and ISIS in Syria. Dozens more have been charged and convicted of providing material support to overseas terrorists.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich has been supportive of the refugee resettlements in his state. Like many GOP governors, he has questioned the quality of the vetting process for Syrian refugees, but nothing has been said about the Somali refugees who have been arriving in large numbers for years and struggling to assimilate. They continue to arrive in U.S. cities at a rate of 500 to 800 a month without so much as a word from the GOP governors.

Meanwhile, Ohio state Democrats are claiming that a likely Senate candidate for 2018 stating that this certainly looks like an Islamism-inspired attack constitutes "Islamophobia coming to my state today."

Michael Premo, chief of staff for Ohio Senate Democrats, blasted Mandel, tweeting, "Looks like knee-jerk islamophobia came to my state today. So sad what @JoshMandelOhio said. We must remain vigilant against prejudice."

Which prejudice? The imagined prejudice of people who aren't attacking Muslims, or the real prejudice of Islamism-crazed jihadis who actually are killing people?

Is that not also prejudice?

Is it just not the kind you care about?

PS: Anyone think the media would be more in a speculating kind of mood about Artan's motive if his FaceBook profile pic looked like this?


Update: ABCNews is straight-up lying: Artan did mention ISIS, by its Arabic name.
