This is the product of the CVE (Combating Violent Extremism) narrative, as Stephen Coughlin shows us:
The way the story reads you could honestly conclude that the man was a non-Muslim (he wasn’t) seeking out muslim victims….the way the MSM is reporting this story is classic CVE, as ambiguous as possible. A man shouting allahu akbar is now ”referencing Allah”.
You would think that a diverse media would use diverse language in conveying a story, but Fox News, CNN, ABC and CBS are all reporting the story in the most ambiguous way to steer the reader/viewer to a certain understanding, which seeks to limit the damage to Islam.
Minnesota mall attacker referenced Allah before stabbing rampage, police chief says
A knife-wielding man who injured eight people at a mall in central Minnesota Saturday evening asked at least one victim whether they were Muslim and referenced Allah during the assault, authorities said Wednesday.
St. Cloud Police Chief William Blair Anderson said the suspect, whom he did not identify, was shot and killed by an off-duty police officer from another jurisdiction. All but one of the eight victims had been treated and released from a local hospital and all were expected to survive their injuries.
Police responded reports of several stabbings at the Crossroads Mall at around 8:30 p.m. local time. Witnesses also reported hearing gunshots at the scene.
Anderson declined to call the attacks an act of terrorism, saying the motive for the attacks isn’t known yet. “We will be diligent and get to the bottom of this,” Anderson said. (TT emboldened print)
