A Somali man charged into a Columbus, Ohio, restaurant on Thursday evening and immediately began attacking innocent patrons with a machete, according to reports
(SOURCE) Four people were injured in the brutal attack Thursday evening at Nazareth Restaurant and Deli, a Mediterranean restaurant in Columbus. The victims were taken to an area hospital and were expected to recover,” CBS reports.
“Police identified the suspected attacker as Mohamed Barry, 30 … [CBS News homeland security correspondent Jeff Pegues] reports the suspected attacker has a Somali background, and officials believe he may have traveled to Dubai in the United Arab Emirates in 2012.”
The Columbus Dispatch reports that “The owner of the Nazareth Restaurant and Deli said he believes his business was targeted because of his Israeli descent.”
Columbus and the larger central Ohio area is home to the second largest Somali population in the country.
Yet many Republican lawmakers seem unaware of the social and cultural impact that large-scale Muslim migration has had in their own backyards. For instance, in an October interview, Breitbart News asked House Freedom Caucus Chairman Jim Jordan about the vast number of Muslim migrants that have resettled in Ohio. Specifically, Breitbart News asked Jordan about reports that document how, as a result of large-scale Muslim migration, more than 20,000 girls in Ohio are at risk of having their sexual organs cut from their bodies through the non-Western practice of female genital mutilation.
Upon learning of these reports for perhaps the first time through Breitbart News’s questioning, Jordan replied, “In Ohio? Wow.”
At the time, Jordan told Breitbart that he had not considered whether Muslim migration into the United States ought to be reduced. When Breitbart asked if Jordan thought the nation’s policy of annually importing a quarter of a million Muslim migrants into the United States ought to be curbed, Jordan replied, “I’d have to look at that closer. I have not looked at that particular.”
The Middle East represents the fastest-growing bloc of immigrants admitted into the country on visas, according to a census data-based report authored by the Center for Immigration Studies. Student visas for Middle Eastern countries have similarly grown enormously, including a 16-fold increase in Saudi students since 9/11. Arabic is now the most common language spoken by refugees, and 91.4 percent of recent refugees from the Middle East are on food stamps. As a result of unbridled Muslim immigration, half a million U.S. girls are now at risk of suffering the barbaric and anti-Western tradition of female genital mutilation.
