Police shot and killed a Muslim immigrant from Africa who attacked patrons of a Columbus, Ohio, restaurant Thursday night, wounding several people. The FBI is now investigating it as a possible act of “lone-wolf” terrorism.
The suspected attacker is a Somali national named Mohammad Barry, CBS reports. There are also reports that Barry was on a terrorist watch-list.
The suspect entered the restaurant earlier in the day and asked for the owner. He was then told the owner was not at the restaurant, and he left the building. Thirty minutes later, armed with a machete, the now-deceased suspect entered the Nazareth Restaurant and Deli at 6:30 p.m. local time with the intent on slashing anything in sight.
“He came to each table and just started hitting them,” one of the diners, Karen Bass, told CBS News. “There was a man on the floor bleeding. There was blood on the floor. It was awful. It was just carnage.”
Four people were wounded in the machete attack, one critically.
The owner of the restaurant, Hany Baransi, who is a Christian Arab from Israel, said he had not taken a day off since Jan. 2 but took off Thursday night because of a migraine headache. He is a proud Israeli citizen who flies the Israeli flag in his restaurant.
So, a Muslim immigrant from Africa decided to go on a bloody rampage at a restaurant owned by an Israeli Christian. Just another case of radical Islamic extremism.
Columbus is a favorite dumping ground for Somali refugees. It’s home to the second-largest Somali-American community in the U.S. after Minneapolis. How did they all get there? 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.
The problem is that many of these refugees are young males who have an allegiance to ISIS. They come to America because it is very easy to. They are bringing terror to our homeland and we are simply allowing them right in the front door with an abundance of resources at their disposal.
There is evil in the world ladies and gentleman. It’s apparent more and more every day that there continues to be a very demonic aspect with the religion of Islam and with those who follow it with a radical view in their heart. An extreme faction consisting of radical believers continue to commit acts of violence against those who do not believe in the same values and faith.
There continues to be a serious problem with those who wish to kill others and themselves for a cause that is rooted in taking over the world. These “lone-wolf” attackers all share the same ideology, which is do harm to all infidels and murder non-believers.
We must continue the conversation that radical Islam is a very serious problem that America must deal with before it’s too late. Enough of the political correctness. Throw it in the garbage already.
There is a great organization, ACT for America that has been on the front line of this issue for years — sounding the alarm about what these barbaric Islamists wish to do to us, and will do if we decide to simply stand on the sideline.
ACT for America is the nation’s largest non-profit, non-partisan, grassroots organization devoted to promoting national security and defeating terrorism. ACT for America has 300,000 members organized in more than 900 chapters nationwide and 11 countries worldwide.
You can join or start your own chapter and help keep America safe. Think of ACT for America as the National Rifle Association (NRA) of National Security.
Join ACT for America’s Refugee Resettlement Working Group and help us protect our nation by addressing a dangerously broken program. This deeply-flawed process is establishing pockets of refugees in our communities with inadequate screening, inadequate assistance to local governments, and inadequate efforts to assimilate refugees into American culture.
Refugee Resettlement and radical Islam is the problem. You are the solution.
Get involved today and be the change we need in this world. Your community needs you. America needs you.
