Even though President Obama seems unable to utter the word “Muslim” and “terrorist” in the same breath, clues appear to be stacking up that the suspect in the terror attack that killed four Marines and one Navy officer was, indeed, Muslim.
And what the suspect apparently texted a friend just hours before the shooting seems in pretty sharp conflict with the left’s narrative of Islam as a “religion of peace.”
The suspected gunman in Thursday’s attack that killed four U.S. marines and a navy officer returned from a trip to Jordan in 2014 angry about conflicts in the Middle East and the reluctance of regional governments and the United States to intervene, a close friend of his told Reuters on Saturday.
Hours before the attack, the suspect, Mohammod Youssuf Abdulazeez, sent a text message to the friend, seen by Reuters, which links to a Koranic verse that includes the text: “Whosoever shows enmity to a friend of Mine, then I have declared war against him.”
When are we going to declare war against those Islamic jihadist who have so clearly declared it against us?
