A shooter was apprehended yesterday by police in Fresno, California as he shouted the jihadist battlecry, “Allah is Greatest,” after murdering three innocent passersby. Per the standard official reaction to this act of Sharia-supremacist violence, the authorities insist that the perpetrator, Kori Ali Muhammad, acted alone and without ideological motive.
An important fact has emerged from Muhammad’s personal history, however. He did hard time in jail. Chances are that he either converted to jihad in prison, or he was a Muslim prior to his conviction who was “radicalized” there.
This jihadist act underscores the threat to public safety posed by such Islamist convicts. It can only be hoped that advisors to President Trump tempted to promote so-called “criminal justice reform” will be discouraged from thereby unleashing more of them on society – and, in so doing, putting more of us at risk.
