The Super Bowl must have provoked him. Outrageous! It should be canceled immediately! After all, we were told endlessly after the jihad attack on our free speech event in Garland that we shouldn’t have provoked the poor jihad murderers, right? If we hadn’t shown drawings of Muhammad, they would have remained peaceful, moderate, loyal American Muslims, right? So provocations must be avoided at all costs! Cancel the Super Bowl!

An Arizona man arrested in connection with an attack on a “Draw Muhammad” contest in Texas last month allegedly also discussed a plan to attack the Super Bowl, an FBI agent said in court Tuesday.
Abdul Malik Abdul Kareem, 43, is charged with supplying weapons to Elton Simpson and Nadir Soofi before those two men opened fire outside the contest in Garland, Texas, on May 4, according to a federal indictment filed last week.
FBI agent Dina McCarthy, with the Joint Terrorism Task Force, said at a Phoenix federal court hearing Tuesday that Abdul Kareem also discussed an potential attack on the Super Bowl held in Glendale in February, NBC station KPNX reported.
Simpson and Soofi were killed in the attack in Garland. The indictment says Abdul Kareem and the two men practiced shooting in the Arizona desert near Phoenix before the attack on the contest. The contest was organized by a free speech group and held at a school.
According to the indictment, Simpson and Soofi discussed the planned attack while at Abdul Kareem’s home on different occasions between Jan 7 and May 3, the day before the attack that ended in gunmen’s deaths.
The terror group ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attack — calling Simpson and Soofi its “soldiers” — but did not offer any evidence to support its claim….
