With guns blazing, two jihadis brought yet another despicable act of terrorism to America. The scene was Garland, Texas where the American Freedom Defense Initiative was holding an exhibit and cartoon competition featuring satirical portrayals of the Islamic prophet Muhammad. Portrayals of the Muslim prophet are forbidden by Islamic law and draw outrage from Muslims.
One of the two gunmen is Elton Simpson, 30, a resident of Phoenix, and a man known to the FBI. Simpson was previously brought to trial on grounds of making false statements to federal agents about his intentions to travel overseas for the purpose of engaging in violent jihad. He was sentenced to probation and became another ticking Islamist bomb waiting to detonate.
The other gunman is Nadir Hamid Soofi, whose social media posts show a personal evolution toward Islamic fundamentalism and a desire to become a lone-wolf jihadi.
Both were killed by vigilant local police.
