Columbus, Ohio: Somali refugee rampage, was it a terrorist attack?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 13, 2016

Update February 16th:  Original reports may have been inaccurate about the machete man’s nationality, see more here.

…..If it walks like a duck!

I’m assuming that by now most of you with concerns about the large number of Muslim refugees being admitted into the US have seen the news.

It took awhile for the slasher’s (the “hater’s”) name to be released and I suspect that is because one of his names happens to be Mohamed. And, although mainstream media (like CNN) will probably never use the word “refugee” in a news story,  (CNN said he was a “lone wolf”), I’m pleased to see that internet news is using the ‘R’ word.

Almost all of the hundreds of thousands of Somalis in the US are refugees admitted to the US through the UN/US State Department Refugee Admissions Program or their children (there are now many generations in the last three plus decades!).

Way back in 2008 we wrote a post where we had researched each year of State Department/ORR records to show readers how many Somalis were resettled each year since the 1980s.  See that post here.

It is no surprise that this happened in Columbus, which is hosting the second largest Somali population in America (behind Minneapolis).  We have many posts on Columbus, click here for more reading pleasure.  And, you can bet that Governor John Kasich has never once questioned why Ohio is being overloaded with Somalis.

Four of nine major resettlement contractors are working to colonize Columbus: Church World Service, Episcopal Migration Ministries, Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, and World Relief/Evangelicals (scroll down to Ohio, here).  For new readers, don’t be so shocked that YES, the Somali Muslims are being resettled by supposedly Christian and Jewish organizations.

I did a little numbers research and Yikes! we admitted 43,653 Somalis to the US JUST SINCE OBAMA TOOK OFFICE!  So while we are freaking out about Syrians we should be having heart attacks over this vast number of Somalis because you know they can’t be any better “vetted” than Syrians!

Here is where the 43,653 were resettled since January 1, 2009 (up to January 1, 2016).  Of the 2,476 who went to Ohio, 2,118 went to Columbus in just the last seven years!

Now here is one of many stories about the Ohio Somali refugee machete man.

This one from Conservative Base:

While the President visits mosques, scolds Americans and continues to parrot his own ideas about Islam and extremism, a Muslim Somali refugee launched a bloody attack on the unsuspecting diners at a Columbus, Ohio, restaurant owned by a Christian Arab who immigrated from Israel.

[….]

Nazarath restauratn

The restaurant where the carnage happened is owned by an Israeli Christian. Sure looks like an Islamic terror attack to me!

The Somali man had calmly entered the eatery, the Nazareth Mediterranean Restaurant, pulled out a machete and began to arbitrarily slash patrons. “He came to each table and just started hitting them,” Carol Bass, one of the witnesses, told a reporter from the local CBS TV affiliate. “There was a man (laying) on the [restaurant’s floor] bleeding. [T]here was blood on the floor. It was awful. It… was carnage.”

Four people were wounded in the machete attack, one critically, according to the local police officers responding to the attack, which has not yet been classified a terrorist attack. “Police officers are loathe to describe anything as a terrorist attack. That’s the unwritten regulation when it involves a suspect from the Middle East. The suspect is a Muslim, he’s from a country that’s practically run by an Islamic terrorist group — in Somalia it’s probably Al-Shabaab — and he attacks a public facility such as a shopping mall or a restaurant and no one wants to call it terrorism. At least until President [Barack] Obama says so,” claims former counter-terrorism unit police officer John Roger Langdon.

Senators Sessions and Cruz want the Obama Administration to stop covering up arrests of Muslims!

In fact, Langdon noted that Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., and Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, recently sent a letter to Attorney General Loretta Lynch calling on the administration to stop covering up the arrests of Muslim jihadists within the U.S. The senators’ letter states that since early 2014 there have been 113 arrests of Muslims implicated in terrorist activity on U.S. soil and the Obama administration refuses to provide an immigration history on any of them.

Sens. Sessions and Cruz also mention in their letter that most of the cases involving radical Muslims have received little or no coverage in the national media as a result of blind support to the President or being ensnared in the political-correctness orthodoxy..

The targeted restaurant’s owner, Hany Baransi, who is identified by cops as a Christian Arab from Israel, said he had not taken a day off since Jan. 2 but took off Thursday night because of a migraine headache. He is a proud Israeli citizen who flies the Israeli flag in his restaurant.

  9. My 1st ? would be: why is the “proud Israeli citizen” Hani Baransi running a restaurant in this country where he flies the Israeli flag? Israel is a very large fly in our ointment. Altho, I sympathize with all the patrons and the owner, I would not personally patronize his Israeli restaurant with it’s flag flying. This is not Israel even tho they have a strangle hold on our government and I would cease all American support of that country if I could. They do us no favors, and a lot of harm. He should go back to the country he is so proud of.

    • Sharon, your comment is disgusting. Basically, you are saying it’s the restaurant owner’s fault because he likes Israel, likes its flag, and that he thus provoked Mohamed X to fly into a rage and try to kill people. You’re basically saying, poor Mohamed, he’s not guilty; it’s the damn Israelis who have a strangle hold on our government– they’re guilty. Not only is what you are saying disgusting, but it reeks of stupidity and Jew hatred. And don’t tell me some of your best friends are Jews…

      Sorry, I clicked the “like” button instead of “reply.”. I DON’T like Sharon’s comments at all. They smack of appeasing Muslims. This is the United States, Sharon. We don’t appease Muslims. They are the ones who need to adapt to the freedoms of this society If they can’t, they are the ones who should get the &*#@” out of this country and go back to the Middle East where they can live with the rest of their intolerant fellow Muslims.

    • Italian restaurants have italian flags, Mexican restaurants have mexican flags, Thai restaurants have pictures of the king. But Israelis can’t be proud of their heritage?

    Ann- I have been reading your blogs for less than a year and am very grateful I found you. Truly you are an amazing and courageous woman who is fearlessly speaking the truth about Islamo Fascist Terrorism and Muslim invasion of our country and Europe. There is a special place in Hell for Hillary and Madeline Albright and other so called “feminists” who pretend to be for women’s rights while ignoring the abuses of Sharia law and the culture (for want of a better word) of Islam when it comes to females. I find it shocking that Hillary, Steinem et al actually go so far as to make excuses for the barbarity of Muslim men towards women that is has been going on for thousands of years

    In this election cycle I believe that there is only one issue that decides the election and that is immigration- legal and illegal. It is the premier issue of our time and unless something is done soon to stop the flow of these invaders, the USA will cease to exist as a country. It has always been about borders, language and culture and as Mark Steyn says, culture trumps politics any day. Speaking of “trumps” I am a big fan of Donald’s and pray that he will win and put an end to or at least slow down the invasion. If it wasn’t for Trump we wouldn’t even be having this discussion in public let alone during a presidential campaign. For too many years many of us libertarian conservatives have been loyal to the GOP candidates, holding our nose and voting for them, only to be betrayed as we have seen. I don’t care that Trump is not a politician, in fact it adds to his resume. I watch his rallies that draw literally tens of thousands of people who stand up and cheer when he talks about Islamic terrorism and building the wall. Let the media and GOP establishment call him all the names they want- he is the only one out there who has the courage to tell it like it is when it comes to these barbarians that are destroying our way of life with the help of the Liberal/Progressive/Islamic Democrat party.

    Keep up the good work, Ann. You are a true patriot.

    Best,

    Patty

    I hope Obama does not turn out to be the best machete salesman of the century. Where are all the libs wanting an immediate ban placed on machetes? Or at least get a background check or get them registered.
