Abdul Razak Ali Artan, an 18-year-old Somali refugee, has been identified as the assailant behind Monday’s slashing at Ohio State University. ISIS has claimed responsibility for the act – calling Artan a ‘soldier’ of their cause.
Abdul Artan was pictured smiling broadly at his community college graduation in May, just months before he became radicalized and bitter about the ‘mistreatment’ of Muslims and attacked his classmates at Ohio State – mowing them down with a car and slashing them with a butcher’s knife.
Artan described how he was ‘at boiling point’ and ‘just couldn’t take it anymore’ in a Facebook rant, minutes before launching his brutal attack which is now being investigated as terrorism.
‘I am sick and tired of seeing my fellow Muslim brothers and sisters being killed and tortured EVERYWHERE.
‘By Allah, I am willing to kill a billion infidels in retribution for a single disabled Muslim,’ the chilling message warned.
In the post, Artan also praised American-born Al Qaeda leader Anwar al-Awlaki, who was killed in a CIA drone strike in 2011 and has been cited as the inspiration for many terror attacks on American soil. On Tuesday, ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack, calling Artan one of their ‘soldiers’. But there has been no evidence thus far that Artan praised the group.
