Totally Misunderstood African Taliban Immigrant Stabs 8 at Minnesota Mall

He did it for Allah.

The man who stabbed and wounded nine people at a mall in Minnesota before he was shot dead by an off-duty cop was a “soldier of the Islamic State,” a news agency run by the terrorist group proclaimed Sunday.

The attacker — who was dressed in a private security uniform and made references to Allah — asked one of the slashing victims at Crossroads Center in St. Cloud if they were Muslim, police said.

Hours after the five minutes of violence on Saturday, the ISIS-run Rasd news agency said the unidentified attacker was acting on behalf of the extremist group, which has urged followers to go after people in countries that are part of a U.S.-led, anti-ISIS coalition.

It was not immediately clear if ISIS had planned the attack or even knew about it beforehand. ISIS has encouraged so-called “lone wolf” attacks.

Geee I hope there is not some kind of Islamophoic a backlash against Islamic State.

Only a very small percentage of Islamic State supporters actually stab a bunch of Americans after asking them if they are Muslims. And besides they are creative, publishing such groundbreaking works as Human Slaughterhouse and Drown A Bunch of Alawites.

Update: Totally misunderstood African Taliban immigrant identified.

Dahir A. Adan, 22, is said to be a Somalian “soldier of the Islamic State” who emigrated from Africa to the US with his family 15 years ago.

His father identified Adan to the Minnesota Star Tribune after his son was shot dead by an off duty police officer in Saturday night's frenzied assault.
ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack which took place at a shopping mall in the city of St Cloud.

Police have said the knifeman "made references to Allah" during his rampage and asked victims whether they were Muslim before attacking.

The assault is being treated as an act of terrorism after an ISIS propaganda channel declared Adan was one of its operatives.

Amaq news agency said he "carried out the operation in response to calls to target the citizens of countries belonging to the crusader coalition."

This isn't the African Taliban immigrant we're looking for, move along. Move along.
