Intro to ‘… another Somali refugee goes on a rampage …’

An Ohio State U student of Muslim Somali decent went on a stabbing spree yesterday and the Mainstream Media and State officials appear clueless as to the motive:
On Tuesday, nearly a full day after Islamic terrorist Abdul Razak Ali Artan ran a car into a group of students and then hopped out with a butcher’s knife and began hacking away, CNN still can’t uncover a motive. Here’s CNN’s headline: “Students back in class at Ohio State; investigators search for knife attack motive.” Ohio Governor John Kasich – OH GOD NO PLEASE GOD NO NOT JOHN KASICH – has now announced “we may never find out” why Artan committed this act of terrorism.
I have a hot lead.
Here was Artan’s post just before entering into a personal jihad against Americans:

Sigh! So another Somali refugee goes on a rampage inspired by his ‘faith’

Update: More from Michael Patrick Leahy at Breitbart, here.
Yesterday when I first heard the news that a knife and a car were involved in the Ohio State rampage, I knew it was going to turn out to be an Islam-inspired terror attack. I had other duties yesterday afternoon and figured you didn’t need me to report since there would be so many springing to action and cable news would eventually report on who the perp was.
With the St. Cloud mall stabbing fresh on our minds, it was not an earth shattering revelation when we learned later in the day that the jihadist was a Somali refugee. And, it is actually very funny this morning to hear CNN report that there is still no declaration that the Somali Muslim was inspired by his ‘faith.’
(For new readers, see a post we wrote here (at the time of the St. Cloud Somali terror attack) listing the numbers of Somalis admitted to the US in 3 decades. See this post from 2008 where I first began to chronicle the Somali numbers. Some of that data came from Wrapsnet.org (now unavailable). Earlier numbers came from a slow process of analyzing ORR annual reports to Congress.)
And, if I am not too excited by this latest news from Ohio maybe it’s because I wrote my first post about Somali refugee “youths” (many of whom we raised since small children with our tax dollars) turning to the ‘religion of peace’ to become jihadists 8 years ago! (Check this out, I wrote that first post on November 26th, 2008—almost to the day 8 years ago.)
So tell me (everyone yakking about vetting!), how are we going to screen the Muslim kids who become radicalized in your town?
BTW, we have written a lot about Columbus, OH, a Somali resettlement city, second only to Little Mogadishu (Minneapolis), see our Columbus archive.
Now to yesterday’s attack in Ohio:
Here is Leo Hohmann at World Net Daily on the Somali Islamic terror attack yesterday. If the news is true about his family’s sojourn in Pakistan then it confirms a point I have been trying to make for a long time—we are picking up Somalis and other Muslim refugees around the world and thus ‘vetting’ is almost impossible!
The Somali refugee who stabbed Ohio State University students with a butcher knife Monday praised a well-known al-Qaida terrorist on his Facebook page minutes before his attack, yet authorities say they are not ready to assign a motive.
Police shot and killed the man as he was attacking students outside a science building. Eleven people were transported to area hospitals with various injuries, according to the Columbus, Ohio, fire department.
The dead attacker was reportedly an Ohio State student – an 18-year-old Somali refugee named Abdul Razak Ali Artan, who left Somalia with his family for Pakistan in 2007 and obtained a green card to enter the U.S. in 2014. He reportedly lived near campus, CNBC News reported.
On his Facebook page, Artan posted a rant about attacks on Muslims.
Appearing three minutes before the beginning of the rampage, the post reads: “I can’t take it anymore. America! Stop interfering with other countries, especially the Muslim Ummah. We are not weak. We are not weak, remember that.”
The post also praised Anwar Al-Awlaki, a radical American-born al-Qaida cleric, describing him as a “hero.”

Let’s talk about this Pakistan connection (assuming that information is correct)!
We know using data that is available at Wraps.net that we are processing in to the US ‘refugees’ from Pakistan, but a large number are not Pakistanis. And, I have been for years trying to make the point that when a supposed legitimate asylum seeker (like a Somali who claims to be somehow persecuted) arrives in a country such as Malta, Malaysia, Australia, or Pakistan that those so-called ‘refugees’ are not our problem! Those are safe countries where the migrant should be asking for asylum. (Unless, of course, if he or she is a Christian arriving in Pakistan!)
We have seen the most clear case of how outrageous a process this is with the Australia deal just in the last few weeks.
Think about this, in the case of Pakistan, a Muslim country, why are they sending us Somalis and why are we accepting them? You know they are being processed in to your towns through the UNHCR office in Pakistan. Can we count on an honest screening process there? Apparently not, or we wouldn’t have the Ohio State slasher attack yesterday.
Go to the map (it is only for last month) I posted on Sunday that is available at Wraps.net. It is a processing country map and see that in the month of October we took in 97 ‘refugees’ through Pakistan.
Then you go to this map which lists the ‘nationalities’ admitted in October and you can see that 60 of the 97 were Pakistanis (I sure hope they were all Christians!). Who are the 37 others (who told the UN they would be persecuted if sent home) that we admitted via the UN through Pakistan in October? Somalis like this Ohio slashers family? You can bet some are Afghans, but who knows? We don’t. The US State Department knows, but the public doesn’t.
Where is Congress?
The point I am making is that while we yak about screening Syrians, all over the world we are taking illegal aliens (with virtually no paperwork) who arrived in some safe (for them) country and transform them in to ‘refugees’ to be placed in your towns and supported on your taxpayers’ dime!
Endnote: I am planning a post soon to counter the lies being told by refugee contractors arriving in new potential resettlement sites where they tell the community that no refugees in America have been involved (or have planned) Islamic terror attacks.

Update April 26, 2015: Need a photo? Here are two.
A few months ago A year ago, Two, Three years ago, Six years, Seven – Eight years ago it came to our attention in Washington County MD that a non-profit group (Virginia Council of Churches) had been bringing refugees into the city of Hagerstown (county seat) for a couple of years. Some problems arose and citizens started to take an interest and ask questions about how this federal program works. Our local paper had no interest in finding the facts, so we decided to find them ourselves.
One of the many startling things we found out about this very quiet effort is that these non-profit groups bring to the US on average each year 15,000 (FY90-FY03) Muslim refugees from the Middle East, Africa, the Balkans, etc, almost completely funded by the US Government through grants and contracts to these non-government agencies. Of the 168 refugees brought to our county since 2004, 125 are Muslim. Although we all have sympathy for persecuted and suffering people there are real questions to be answered about the wisdom of this policy.
It turns out that there are hotbeds of this refugee resettlement controversy throughout the US. We have identified some of those. Because the issue is much more complicated than … READ THE REST
