The shooting by, what seems to be a young Muslim Radical, Muhammad Youssuf Abdulazeez, left four U.S. Marines and one U.S. Navy sailor killed this past week in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The FBI, who have been conducting increased surveillance on potential threats (attacks) during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, say they failed to scope out any activities in Chattanooga – although they were successful in arresting 10 individuals in the last 6 weeks within other cities.
“We are under attack by Muslims at home and abroad. We should stop immigration of Muslims to the U.S. until threat with Islam has been settled” wrote Rev. Franklin Graham on his Facebook after the attack occurred.
There are those wounded by this week’s event who have taken to participating in prayer circles due to the shooting – and some have even formed circles of protest. “How many more mothers have to go through this before we finally do something about it?” screamed out Darell Gibbs, protester and pastor of Highways and Hedges Ministries. “How many mothers have to suffer like this, having cameras shoved down their throats?”
In his remarks on the Chattanooga shootings, Obama said: “We don’t yet know all the details behind the attack in Chattanooga, but we do know that Al Qaeda and ISIL have encouraged attacks on American soil, including against our service members. And this threat of lone wolves and small cells is hard to detect and prevent.”
Outcries to end Muslim immigration into the states dwindle away as Obama’s administration places the Iran Nuclear Deal as first in its agenda. It seems as though Obama has dismissed the Chattanooga incident as another random attack on U.S. soil.
