Report: At Least One San Bernardino Killer Pledged Allegiance To ISIS
And if one did, then you can be almost certain that the other like-minded live-together, eat-together, pray-together, slay-together jihadist did so as well …
Hadith, Muslim 1844, 1851, “Whoever gives his oath of allegiance to a leader and gives him his hand and his heart, let him obey him as much as he can … Whoever dies and did not make an oath of allegiance (to the Muslim leader) has died a death of jaahiliyyah [like an ignorant non-Muslim in pre-Islamic times]” – The “Prophet” Mohammed
Update: Pro-ISIS News Agency Says Islamic State Followers Carried Out California Attacks – “The Aamaq news agency, which supports Islamic State, said on its website on Friday that followers of the Islamist militant group had carried out Wednesday’s attack on a social services agency in California, in which 14 people were killed.” Source – Yahoo News.
CNN – “Investigators think that as the San Bernardino, California, attack was happening, female shooter Tashfeen Malik posted a pledge of allegiance to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi on Facebook, three U.S. officials familiar with the investigation told CNN.
Malik’s post was made on an account with a different name, one U.S. official said. The officials did not explain how they knew Malik made the post.
A law enforcement official said it appeared that Wednesday’s attack — which left 14 people dead and 21 wounded before the two attackers, Malik and her husband, Syed Rizwan Farook, were killed in a shootout with police — may have been inspired by ISIS. But none of the officials said that ISIS directed or ordered the attack.
‘This is looking more and more like self-radicalization,’ a law enforcement official said.
Another official said authorities haven’t ruled out that others may have influenced this radical view…
Farook and Malik ‘kept to themselves,’ Abuershaid said. But the interactions they did have didn’t hint at any significant changes in their thinking or demeanor, any turn to Islamist extremism, or any sign they were plotting a mass killing, the lawyer said.
‘There was nothing to show that (Malik) was extreme at all,’ Abuershaid said. ‘(And Farook) was a normal guy, in every sense of the word.'” Read more.
