Over the weekend, there were two seeming terrorist attacks. At a train station in Marseilles, France, two young women aged 17 and 20 were stabbed to death by a man of reported “North African appearance” who was shouting “Allahu Akbar!” Guards shot him to death. He was linked to at least seven fake identities in France and Africa, and was arrested by the police for shoplifting, but released the day before the attack. ISIS later took credit, claiming he was one of their “soldiers.” This is the latest in a long string of similar attacks in France.
Meanwhile, Saturday night in Edmonton, Canada, a man crashed a car with an ISIS flag on the seat through a police barrier near a sporting event, striking a police officer, then got out and started stabbing the injured cop. He failed to wrestle away the officer’s gun and fled. He was later stopped by police while driving a U-Haul. He again fled, deliberately hitting pedestrians and sending four people to the hospital before the truck overturned and he was caught.
He’s now been identified as Abdulahi Hasan Sharif, a Somali national who arrived in Canada as a “refugee.” He was a so-called “known wolf” that authorities were supposed to be keeping watch on, but a fat lot of good that did. As the linked story notes, President Trump has tried to block refugees from certain terrorist-plagued nations until there was some way to vet them. Liberals here have been clogging the courts, fighting tooth and nail to stop Trump’s efforts. And yes, one of those nations on his list is Somalia.
We’ll find out soon whether the Supreme Court agrees that letting known wolves at the door come into our house would be a smart idea.
