Washington State Mall Shooter May Not Be a Jihad Terrorist – He could be something even worse.

The evidence is scant that Arcan Cetin, a Muslim migrant from Turkey, murdered five people in Cascade Mall in Burlington, Washington last Friday night in the name of jihad and Islam, but the evidence that does exist is striking. Amid his busy online activity, Cetin posted admiration for the Islamic State caliph al-Baghdadi and Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Khamenei and a call for Muslims to repeat “SubhanAllah” multiple times.

It’s hard to imagine a scenario in which someone who did not have jihad sympathies would post anything positive about Baghdadi or Khamenei, but the problem in Cetin’s case is that these references come without any supporting context.

    They are everywhere.

    Dear feminists, this is what an actual “misogynist” from an actual “rape culture” looks like.
    My question is, do you really care?

    He probably was driven to his crimes by the local rotary club.

    Remember the Montreal massacre? Same brain function. Same misogynist ideology.

    Perhaps we should stop referring to this as terrorism and call it strictly by it’s proper name, ‘jihad’. CAIR keeps moving the goal posts and the left is only too happy to accomodate them by asking us to define terrorism and demanding proof of contact with ISIS or al-Qaida and obfuscating over sleeper cells and lone wolves etc. Truth is anybody can be a terrorist but only muslims conduct jihad and jihad can be any kind of intimidation, mischief or mayhem conducted by muslims living in the west. It can be carried out by an individual or as part of an organization. Time to pin the tail on the donkey, don’t say it’s terror, say it’s jihad then everyone knows who’s doing it and why it’s being done.
