A day after the Islamic State claimed responsibility for Monday’s terror attack in Ohio, the Obama administration warned against blaming Muslims after an ISIS agent in Ohio attacked innocent students with a “machete” and refused (video below) to call the police officer responsible for stopping the attack!!
As the official news agency of the Islamic State labeled the Ohio State student who smashed his car into a crowd and then slashed at people with a butcher knife a “soldier”, White House press secretary Josh Earnest lectured reporters,
“Our response to this situation matters. If we respond to this situation by casting aspersions on millions of people that adhere to a particular religion or if we increase our suspicion of people who practice a particular religion, we are more likely going to contribute to acts of violence than we are to prevent them.”

The attack in Ohio occurred a few short weeks after the Islamic state issued instructions to it’s Muslim followers to carry out attacks using knives and vehicles. Monday’s attack occurred when the ISIS agent attack a group of students, first with his vehicle, and then with a large “machete” type knife.
C’mon folks, this isn’t complicated and is an absolute disgrace. A Muslim terrorist attacked innocent Americans in Ohio. Full stop. Period. End of story. Why the White House refuses to call this attack, and every other similar attack, attacks from radical Islamists is more than disgraceful, it’s concerning. Law enforcement have pinpointed the attacker as “likely inspired by ISIS”, the attacker himself (prior to the attack) posted on Facebook
“By Allah, we will not let you sleep unless you give peace to the Muslims. You will not celebrate or enjoy any holiday,” he wrote before the attack. “Btw, every single Muslim who disapproves of my actions is a sleeper cell, waiting for a signal. I am warning you Oh America.”
The ISIS propaganda wing “news” group Amaq called the attacker “a soldier of God,” according to the New Yorker. President Obama – wake up and smell the coffee!!!
Instead we have a President who refuses to call terror terror, didn’t even call to congratulate the police officer who stopped this terror attack, and is warning this country from blaming the very people who were responsible for the attack!
President-Elect Trump’s response was to unequivocally state the ISIS terrorist should not have been allowed in the country to begin with as he draws a distinct and sharp line separating himself from Barack Hussein Obama as a different President with a different vision for this country.
ISIS is taking credit for the terrible stabbing attack at Ohio State University by a Somali refugee who should not have been in our country.
