The media and Muslims keep telling us the jihadists weren’t “real” Muslims. They couldn’t be more Muslim. That’s why they got a Muslim burial (reportedly guarded by FBI agents).
Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik, who opened fire on a San Bernardino holiday [Christmas] party earlier this month, were buried Tuesday in a quiet, graveside funeral.
U.S.-born Farook, 28, and his Pakistani-born wife Malik, 29, killed 14 people and injured 21, in what U.S. officials have called a terrorist attack. They died later that day in a gun battle with police.
The funeral followed traditional Islamic rituals, said an attendee. At a Muslim cemetery hours away from San Bernardino, the bodies were cleansed according to Islamic rules, wrapped in white cloth and buried.
The funeral attendee and another person familiar with the situation, both of whom asked not to be identified for fear of retaliation, said it took a week to find a graveyard willing to accept the bodies.
Neither source would say which cemetery refused to bury the couple, but a woman at the Islamic Cemetery & Masjid in Adelanto, Calif. – less than an hour from San Bernardino – confirmed the cemetery had refused to bury the bodies, in part out of a fear of backlash, but also for “other reasons”. She declined to give her name.
