[Ed. – Yeah, that sure is a puzzler!]
Adan shouted “Allahu akbar” and first asked some victims if they were Muslim before stabbing them.
And they can’t figure out his motive? Is there no end to the willful ignorance and insanity of those who have a sworn responsibility to protect the people? His motive couldn’t be more obvious, but it is the one thing that is forever untouchable: Islam.
“One year later, motive of St. Cloud mall attacker remains unclear,” by Stephen Montemayor, Star Tribune, September 17, 2017:
Two months before he plunged kitchen knives into 10 shoppers at St. Cloud’s Crossroads Center mall, after reportedly asking some if they were Muslim, Dahir Adan shared a radically different message on Twitter.
“Don’t ever say that ISIS represents Islam,” read part of a post @D_Adan retweeted on July 4, 2016.
That same terrorist group would deem the 20-year-old Adan a “soldier of the Islamic State” hours after he was gunned down by an off-duty police officer inside the mall on Sept. 17, 2016. The FBI, for its part, quickly labeled the case a “potential act of terrorism.”
