Muslim migrant Dahir Adan went on a stabbing spree in at a mall in St Cloud a couple of weeks ago. Dressed in a private security uniform, Adan yelled “Islam, Islam” and “Allahu akbar,” as well as asking several people whether they were Muslim before stabbing them during the Sept. 17 attack. This is signature jihad — we have seen jihadis separate Muslim from non-Muslims during the attacks at the Oberoi Trident hotel, the Taj Mahal Palace & Tower in Mumbai, at the Westgate in Nairobi, the beach resort in Tunisia, the gas complex attack in Algeria etc
Under the Obama sharia administration, we are prohibited from naming the enemy, prohibited from speaking critically of jihad or Islam. So, of course, conspiracy theories will abound. And Muslim supremacists like CAIR and ISNA have partnered with dupes in the BLM (Black Lives Matter) movement to co-opt their narrative in the cause of Allah.

The FBI held an unusual press conference today in the case of last month’s terror attack at a shopping mall in St. Cloud, Minnesota. The attacker, 20-year old Somali refugee Dahir Adan, was shot and killed on the scene by an off-duty police officer after stabbing ten mall workers and shoppers.
The press conference was unusual in that the investigation into the matter is still ongoing, but the FBI and local law enforcement felt the need to release graphic video of the attacks in order to shoot down various conspiracy theories circulating in the Minnesota Somali community and perpetuated by Black Lives Matter groups.
One of the early conspiracy theories floated by Adan’s family was the claim that he was an innocent bystander who was in the mall to pick up his new iPhone at the mall:
Those false rumors led some in the Somali community to use the incident to circulate claims that the shooting of Adan was unjustified:
Others claimed that Adan was mentally ill, which the family denied:
Just last week FBI Director James Comey testified that Adan appeared to be inspired by “extremist ideology”:
The FBI released further details on his possible motivation during their press conference today.
CBS News reports:
The stabbings at a central Minnesota mall last month that wounded 10 likely was premeditated by the attacker, who may have become radicalized recently, federal authorities said Thursday.Dahir Ahmed Adan became interested in Islam in the last several months, withdrew from his friends and encouraged his sisters to be more religious, FBI Special Agent Rick Thornton said at a news conference.
Witnesses told investigators that 20-year-old Adan yelled “Islam, Islam” and “Allahu akbar,” as well as asking several people whether they were Muslim before stabbing them during the Sept. 17 attack, which started outside Crossroads Center mall before moving inside.
“We were told Adan had not previously shown an interest in religion. Adan also encouraged some female relatives to become more religiously observant,” Thornton said, adding that investigators continue to analyze Adan’s digital footprint, including his social media and online activity, and are trying to obtain permission to unlock his smartphone.
FBI Director James Comey said last week it appeared Adan was at least partly inspired by extremist ideology. Thornton also said that Adan went from being a high academic performer to failing out of college “almost overnight” after taking an increased interest in Islam.
During the press conference they showed video of some of the stabbings and the confrontation with the off-duty officer who shot him:
