More than pastrami got sliced up in an Ohio restaurant and deli. A lone man, who’s name is not John Smith or Kevin Durant, or Kelly Mason, entered the deli with more than sandwiches on his mind. The FBI is investigating the man, who might turn out to be a raging Baptist, after he entered the Nazareth Restaurant and Deli (owned by an Arabic Christian) to chop up some onions and infidels. ALLEGEDLY.
FBI investigators have not yet found any evidence to suggest the attack was directed by Islamic State or any other foreign terror organization, but federal authorities are still running down the possibility that Mohammad Barry was inspired by terrorist propaganda.
Columbus police identified Barry, 30, as the attacker at Nazareth Restaurant and Deli. Barry entered the restaurant Thursday night and wounded four patrons before being killed by police in a confrontation a few miles away.
It’s unclear what motivated Barry’s attack, but it appears he was known to the FBI.
Okay, so let’s point out the glaringly obvious point here. The feds are all “We’re not sure what motivated this guy. Sure, we’re all super aware of him, but we think maybe it was, like, propaganda or something.” Hey, I have no problem with the FBI, but they’re usually not involved in a local slice and dice incident. You know what with those things called “jurisdictions.”
Yet the FBI came in and shoved the local Ohio police out of the way. Or at least that’s how it would’ve gone down in a TV drama. You know it, I know it.
Which means despite the FBI trying to get ahead of this incident, critical thinking people nationwide will identify it as terrorism. Not just because this guy was named “Mohammad.” Not just because this guy stabbed and hacked people for reasons which are still “unknown” (LOL). Not just because Mohammad was originally from Guinea. Or Somalia. News is still foggy on just exactly where Mohammad hailed from… but it’s not Iceland. Not just because his former roommate identified him as “private.” No, it’s all of those reasons plus the FBI being involved which will throw up the red flag. Also, he’s probably a Muslim. Coincidence. #NotAllMuslims
Interestingly, or ironically, depending upon your outlook this day, the Nazareth Restaurant prides itself on multiculturalism.
It was not clear if there was any political or racial motivation for the attack, but the Nazarath is known for its multiculturalism. The entrance is adorned with a small Israeli flag and the Arabic phrase, “Ahlan Wa Shalan” which translates to “You are my family, take it easy.”
So there you go. Support for Israel? Triggering. Telling people in Arabic to “take it easy,” after displaying the Israeli flag? Double triggering. Obviously this guy had to stab people. Let’s just be glad he didn’t rape any women, as what’s happening in Germany.
What are the odds of this guy turning out to be a methodist? Any bet-takers?
