The de facto scrubbing, censorship, whitewash of all things jihadic and Islamic (except of course dawah and propaganda) is now the way of things. Anyone who continues to fight for truth and freedom will work on the very outer margins, while the enemy is feted, exalted and hailed as the victim.
This stabbing incident was initially reported as an “interrupted theft,” with no indication that it was jihad. It took the perpetrator himself to explain that in stabbing these two non-Muslims, he was answering the “call for jihad by the Chief of Believer, Abu-bakr Al-baghdadi, may Allah protect him, and by the Mujahiden of the Islamic State.” He even says that his victims know this: “I understand that the two men I stabbed know and have explained the reason for my attack, and I am here reaffirming that it was indeed an act of Jihad in the way of Allah.”
The only people who don’t know it, or refuse to accept it and ponder its implications, are in Minnesota law enforcement and media.
“Court Records: Mall of America Stabbing Suspect Pleads Guilty, Calls it Act of Jihad,” KSTP, January 26, 2018:
On Thursday, 20-year-old Mahad Abdiaziz Adbiraham pleaded guilty to stabbing two men at the Mall of America.
The incident occurred on Nov. 12, where authorities say he stabbed two brothers in a dressing room at the mall’s Macy’s.
At the plea hearing Thursday, Abdiraham’s attorney read a statement — which is public record — to the courtroom, which explained why he attacked the two men.
In the statement, Abdiraham said he went to the Mall of America to answer the “call for jihad by the Chief of Believer, Abu-bakr Al-baghdadi, may Allah protect him, and by the Mujahiden of the Islamic State.”
The statement added, “I understand that the two men I stabbed know and have explained the reason for my attack, and I am here reaffirming that it was indeed an act of Jihad in the way of Allah.”
Abdiraham also said in the statement that Americans will not be safe as long as “your country is at war with Islam.”
Omar Jamal, an activist with a Somali watchdog group, said he is aware of the statement.
“This is a widespread sentiment with Somali youth,” he said.
Jamal said the federal government’s effort to make it difficult for would-be jihadists to travel abroad and join a terrorist group has had unintended consequences locally.
“What is very concerning in this instance, is the fact that youth are exploring more ‘How can I do something here, what weapons are accessible,’” he said….
