Political correctness covers for jihad.
ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) -- An Islamic State linked media source has claimed a man who stabbed eight people at a Minnesota shopping mall was a "soldier of the Islamic State."
The man, who was reportedly a private security guard uniform at the time of the attack, mentioned Allah and asked at least one victim if they were Muslim before an off-duty police officer shot and killed him, authorities said.
[St. Cloud police Chief Blair] Anderson said the man reportedly made at least one reference to Allah and asked a victim if they were Muslim before attacking them. But he declined to call it an act of terrorism, saying the motive was still unknown.BREAKING: IS-linked media claims Minnesota mall stabber was 'soldier of the Islamic State.'— The Associated Press (@AP) September 18, 2016
