And he was a well-vetted Muslim immigrant. The Tower must have forgot to edit that bit of info out of their story.
What could possibly have been Mohamed Barry’s motive in attacking people in an Israeli Arab Christian restaurant in Ohio with a machete? It’s a mystery.
“He had a look on his face that was [indescribable],” Gerald told NBC affiliate WCMH. “And it was just a lot of hate and anger, and I have no idea where the rage is coming from.”
I believe it’s known as the Koran. Specifically, “Slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captive and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush” (Quran 9:5).
But Let’s not jump to any conclusions.
The assailant, identified by police as Mohamed Barry, a 30-year-old of Somali heritage, “came in and asked where I was from,” Baransi told The Tower. While Baransi was at home nursing a headache at the time, one of his employees– a young waitress– told Barry that the owner is from Israel. The man left after he determined that Baransi wasn’t at the restaurant, only to return around 30 minutes later with a machete and start hacking people.
“He came to each table and just started hitting them,” Karen Bass, who was in the restaurant at the time, told WBNS. “There were tables and chairs overturned, there was a man on the floor bleeding, there was blood on the floor.”
“He yelled ‘Allahu Akbar’ and then he attacked them with the machete and that’s when they shot him and killed him,” Baransi said.
But there are so many reasons he could have been shouting, Allahu Akbar while trying to murder non-Muslims.
