This is just yet another tragedy to befall innocent Americans at the hands of ISIS. The local police have found evidence that Abdul Razak Ali Artan was connected to ISIS and that he had seen ISIS training videos before carrying out the attack.
Now, ISIS has come out and confirmed that Artan was acting on their behalf and they even referred to him as a “soldier of the Islamic State.”
According to :
NY Daily News reported that in one post, Artan spoke of “sleeper cells” and Muslims who were “waiting for a signal.”
He warned that if America wanted “Muslims to stop carrying lone wolf attacks, then make peace with ‘dawla in al sham,’” a term for ISIS.
In another post, Artan said the U.S. should stop meddling in the affairs of other countries.
“We are not weak. We are not weak, remember that,” he wrote.
These are scary times in the United States and it makes even more sense for extreme vetting of incoming immigrants and refugees into this country.
Artan came to America as a Somalian refugee and later became a permanent US Citizen. He was going to Ohio State University on the taxpayers’ money and then attacks innocent people.
None of the people that were injured in the attack have died.
The sleeper cells point to the bigger problem that the United States is facing now. How to find small units of terrorists that are virtually undetectable.
The easiest method is to prevent them from entering the country in the first place and that is what Donald Trump has called for throughout the election in regards to extreme vetting of incoming refugees and immigrants.
