Are you puzzled by what’s being said about the murderous attack Wednesday in San Bernandino by reporters, officials and so-called “experts?”
After all, we know that the perpetrators were two heavily armed and body-armored Muslims who shot to death 14 innocent civilians and injured many more. A family member described one as “religious.” He reportedly brought the other from Saudi Arabia, a nation whose principal exports are energy products and Islamic supremacism.
Muslim Brotherhood operatives quickly held a press conference to insist that this incident might be – wait for it – “workplace violence” like the Fort Hood massacre, or the result of a mental health disorder. Others assert that it was just violent extremism and the right response is more gun control.
The available evidence suggests it was actually jihad. And remember, it happened in one of the country’s most gun-controlled states.
