The terrorist who injured nine people in a Minnesota mall on Saturday night has been identified.
The suspect’s father identified 22-year-old college student Dahir Adan, a Somali-American, as the man who went on a stabbing spree, while shouting the name of Allah, at the Crossroads Center in St. Cloud before he was shot dead by the former police chief of neighboring Albany, Jason Falconer, the Star Tribune reported.
Adan His father, Ahmed Adan, said, through a translator, that he had no indication that his son was a terrorist, according to the Tribune.
The elder Adan said his son was a Somalian who was born in Kenya and came to America from his African home about 15 years ago.
The Islamic State has since claimed responsibility for the attack and called Adan “a soldier of the Islamic State” who “carried out the operation in response to the citizens of countries belonging to the crusader coalition.”
Social media users noted that the attack doesn’t say a lot for the left’s narrative that somehow, magically, after the Middle Eastern and African refugees they want to bring to America get “assimilated” they will not be a threat.
