Abdul Razak Ali Artan last week set off a fire alarm on campus, the drove his car into the crowd of students evacuating the building. Then he jumped out of his car and began stabbing people with a butcher knife. But he was a “nice young man” and “a good student” who “had a dream to be someone to help his community and serve his community. So obviously he was killed “for no reason” because, you know, Muslims are always and in every case victims, no matter what they do. As the mother spoke, doubtless Van Jones was nodding in agreement.
“Mother Of OSU Attacker Says Her Son Was Killed ‘For No Reason,’” by Blake Stephens, Western Journalism, December 2, 2016:
On Thursday, the mother of Somali-born Ohio State University student Abdul Razak Ali Artan said before his funeral that her son was killed for “no reason.”
The 18-year-old Artan drove his car into a crowd, exited the vehicle and proceeded to attack nearby students with a butcher knife before being fatally shot by campus police officer Alan Horujko, who was the first to arrive on the scene.
Artan was the only fatality in the attack, which left 11 people injured at the campus in Columbus, Ohio.
Ahmed Sh. Ahmed, the director of the Ibn Taymia Mosque and Islamic Center where the ceremony was held, recalled Artan’s mother in tears as she kissed the body of her son for a final time before his burial.
“She was crying, and said, ‘I love you, my son. I know they kill you for no reason,’” Ahmed said.
“I asked his mom yesterday, ‘Did you see any change, any kind of change?’ and she said, ‘No, everything was normal, everything was the same,’ Ahmed told WCMH-TV in Columbus.
Ahmed said relatives and those close to Artan perceived him to be a “nice young man” and “a good student.”
He said that Artan’s aunt told him her nephew “had a dream to be someone to help his community and serve his community.”…
