Multiple news outlets are reporting today that Federal agents are searching an apartment in Phoenix in an investigation into a shooting outside a suburban Dallas venue that was hosting a contest for Prophet Muhammad cartoons.
Police officers shot and killed two gunmen who opened fire on a security officer outside the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland Sunday night. The security officer was wounded in the shooting.
FBI spokesman Perryn Collier told The Associated Press that the Phoenix residence is being searched for indications of what prompted the attack.
ABC News, citing a senior FBI official, reported that one of the gunmen, a resident of the Phoenix apartment, was known to authorities and has been the subject of a terror investigation. That man was convicted five years ago of lying to federal agents about plans to travel to Africa in an apparent attempt to join a terror group there, ABC reported.
John Iannarelli, Assistant Special Agent in Charge FBI’s Phoenix office, said authorities in Texas traced both suspects to the Phoenix apartment and that the two appear to have been roommates. The second suspect has not been publicly identified.
Followers of ISIS had been sending messages about the event in Texas for more than a week, calling for attacks. One referenced January’s Charlie Hebdo massacre in France and said it was time for “brothers” in the United States to do their part.
Make no mistake, the number of attacks and related carnage is only limited by the number of ISIS agents within the United States and more are flooding over the border every day.
The Gateway Pundit reported on Saturday May 2 that ISIS executed 600 Yazidi hostages in Tal Afar. The report, first released by Aranews via Religion of Peace Friday, said:
The group piled the bodies into the well of Alo Antar on al-Ayyadiya highway, local sources reported.
Shahin Shingali, a fighter in the ranks of the Peshmerga forces, stated to ARA News that since Friday the IS radicals transferred nearly 700 Yezidi hostages to Talafar.
Aseel al-Nujaifi, governor of Nineveh province in Iraq, confirmed on Friday that the ISIS terrorists executed hundreds of Yezidi captives.
“A new crime was committed by Daesh (Islamic State) against our Yezidi people on Friday,” al-Nujaifi said in a statement.
TheReligionofPeace.com is a pluralistic, non-partisan site concerned with Islam’s true political and religious teachings according to its own texts. They present the threat that Islam poses to human dignity and freedom, and document the violence that ensues as a direct consequence of this religion’s supremacist teachings.
According to the About page, the group is not associated with any organization or promote any religion, but we are not hostile to religion saying, “We generally support the rights of atheists, Christians, Hindus, Jews, homosexuals, woman, Muslims and anyone else on the planet to live as they wish without violating the rights of others.
“We strongly condemn any attempt to harm or harass any Muslim anywhere in the world because of their religion. Every human being is entitled to be treated as an individual and judged only by his or her own words and deeds.
“We also denounce any act of vandalism against mosques or other property, including juvenile attempts to offend Muslims by desecrating copies of the Quran. (The best way of discrediting the Quran is to tell non-Muslims what it actually says about them).
“At the same time, we see no use in pretending that Islam is just another religion – which always seems to be the assumption of those preferring not to look too closely.
“In fact, Islam is dreadfully unique – and it should be OK to say so,” the site declares.
