ISIS Claims Responsibility For Shooting A Mohammed Cartoon Event
Of course they did…
The Islamic State terrorist group claimed its first attack on US soil, a shooting at an anti-Muslim event in Texas over the weekend showcasing cartoons mocking the Prophet Mohammed.
‘Two of the soldiers of the caliphate executed an attack on an art exhibit in Garland, Texas, and this exhibit was portraying negative pictures of the Prophet Mohammed,’ the jihadist group said through its Al Bayan radio station.
‘We tell America that what is coming will be even bigger and more bitter, and that you will see the soldiers of the Islamic State do terrible things,’ the group announced.
It was unclear whether the group was opportunistically claiming the attack as its own.
Police said two men drove up to the conference centre Sunday in Garland, Texas, where the right-wing American Freedom Defense Initiative was organising the controversial cartoon contest, and began shooting at a security guard.
Garland police officers then shot and killed both men.
According to US media reports, the two suspected jihadists were Elton Simpson, 31, and Nadir Soofi, 34, who shared an apartment in Phoenix, Arizona.
ISIS would take credit for the guy who forgot to put extra cheese on your McDonald’s burger. SMH.
