General jihadist propaganda may have inspired Tennessee gunman: source

General jihadist propaganda on the Internet may have inspired Mohammod Youssuf Abdulazeez, the man accused of killing five servicemen in Tennessee on Thursday before being shot dead himself, a source close to the investigation said on Monday.

The source, who asked for anonymity when discussing sensitive information, told Reuters that authorities had not established a direct link between Abdulazeez and specific groups such as Islamic State.

The attack is being investigated as an act of terrorism.


General jihadist propaganda? The Quran?

    ‘general jihadist propaganda’

    That is hardly reassuring.

    With as much ‘general jihadist propaganda’ as there is on the internet and elsewhere (hello, al-Jazeera!) it’s next to impossible for law enforcement and other authorities to stop these Islam-inspired attacks.

    There will be other attacks. No doubt.

    It’s like those signs in a factory that say ‘It has been __ days since the last workplace injury.’
    Everybody is happy to watch the injury-free days add up, but, they know another injury will happen.
    It’s not a matter of ‘if’, but, rather ‘when’.

    “It has been 4 days since the last Islam-inspired terrorist attack on American soil. Keep calm and chive on.”

    • It is inevitable.

        Years ago, I used to be in the lightning protection industry. We told people, “You can’t prevent a strike, but you can limit the damage”.

        It’s the same with terrorism – and instead of trying to disarm and enslave the public, the government should be making them active partners in national defense.

    What, there was no Islam behavior in the home? No worship visits to the mosque? The guy was born and raised Muslim, but the press wants to blame the internets.

    • Yea, years of religious upbringing in an insular community and wham a couple clicks on the web turned him into a killer.

      All Jihadi Killers are formed in a vacuum that has no Islam present ever according to experts.

    The authorities are still in denial. I hope Donald, or at least one other Republican, speaks out about this.
