On Thursday, the mother of Somali-born Ohio State University student Abdul Razak Ali Artan said before his funeral that her son was killed for no reason.
The 18-year-old Artan drove his car into a crowd, exited the vehicle and proceeded to attack nearby students with a butcher knife before being fatally shot by campus police officer Alan Horujko, who was the first to arrive on the scene.
Artan was the only fatality in the attack, which left 11 people injured at the campus in Columbus, Ohio.
Ahmed Sh. Ahmed, the director of the Ibn Taymia Mosque and Islamic Center where the ceremony was held, recalled Artans mother in tears as she kissed the body of her son for a final time before his burial.
She was crying, and said, I love you, my son. I know they kill you for no reason,' Ahmed said.
I asked his mom yesterday, Did you see any change, any kind of change? and she said, No, everything was normal, everything was the same, Ahmed told WCMH-TV in Columbus.
Ahmed said relatives and those close to Artan perceived him to be a nice young man and a good student.
He said that Artans aunt told him her nephew had a dream to be someone to help his community and serve his community.
Artan worked at a Home Depot a few miles from his home. A customer of the store told the Columbus Dispatch that Artan seemed very happy, very engaged in his work. Very polite.
Monday morning prior to the attack, Artan purchased a knife at a Walmart, although authorities have not confirmed if it is the same knife used in the attack.
Columbus police and the FBI believe Artan was likely inspired by extremist propaganda, although they have not yet found a clear link between Artan and any terrorist groups.
A social media post made just hours before the attack and believed to have been written by Artan said, I am sick and tired of my fellow Muslim brothers and sisters being killed everywhere.
The post talks about reaching a boiling point after seeing Muslims being killed in Burma and and concludes with, I cant take it anymore.
You and Islam raised him.....deal with the results!
Their are Christians being martyed every day in the Middle East, Africa or China. You don’t see Christians trying to mow down a bunch of college students or chasing them with a knife as ‘vengence’. No. There is something seriously wrong with Islam whenever excuses are made for this interpretation.
Ah, but you see, he lived his dream! He did try to help his community! His Muslim community that is: he attempted to rid his community of infidels.
The cure is 4 shots from a 44.
“He was only killing infidels!”
Deport the family members of domestic terrorists.
In her native culture, she is probably right.
An Islamic follower who believes that they have “the ability to pick up a turd by the clean end”.
You’re the reason, b!tch. You taught him to hate this country. You didn’t teach him that human life has a value, and that your subhuman ideology doesn’t.
Happens every time. For every person that goes on a murder spree, there’s always a mother that runs to the media and tells us that her son is a sweet misunderstood boy.
It’s not too hard to figure why this little psycho turned out the way he did. I hope she didn’t have any more little demon-spawn. This family should be first on the list to be deported.
She has other children so you’re initial post is probably accurate enough...
What does this have to do with people in the US? It's unbelievable.
Yeah, he was such a great kid, and then one day, he got a call from Charles Bronson:
“The woods are lovely, dark, and deep, but I have promises to keep. And miles to go before I sleep. Remember miles to go before you sleep.”
I can think of at least eleven reasons.
His Mother didn't say anything. Ahmed did all the talking.
The trouble with this is, a lot of Snowflakes agree with her. There are a lot of sickos in our country these days.
Wait a minute,Darth,,,
You’ve been to Tombstone AZ?
“Here lies Lester Moore,
4 shots from a 44
No less , No Moore.”
“What benefit are we, as Americans, receiving by importing all these Somalis in to the nation?”
Absolutely NONE!!! Except that it fits the narrative of destruction of the USA as cheered on by Soros, UN Agenda 21 et al., a REAL US President such as we will have in Jan. 2017 would NEVER have allowed the importation to happen! Trump MUST push for repeal of that filthy drunken bastard Ted Kennedy’s Immigration Act of 1965!!!
