Is ‘Allah Akbar’ ISIS-Inspired? Virginia Attack By Wasil Farooqui In Roanoke Investigated By FBI For Islamic State Ties

by Bruce Wright | International Business Times  |  published on August 23, 2016


The Federal Bureau of Investigation is looking into the possibility of Saturday night’s stabbing attack in rural Virginia being inspired by the Islamic State group. Wasil Farooqui allegedly shouted “Allah Akbar” before launching his knife attack. The variation of an Arabic phrase means “God is great,” but it has also frequently been associated with terror attacks on U.S. soil.

The 20-year-old Farooqui stabbed a man and a woman at an apartment complex in Roanoke, but the motive for the attack was not immediately announced, the Associated Press reported. Farooqui lives in Roanoke County, but it also was not immediately clear if he or the stabbing victims lived at The Pines Apartments, where the incident took place.

The stabbing victims were hospitalized but the status of their conditions were not immediately available. Law enforcement believes that Farooqui was trying to decapitate the male victim.

Citing federal law enforcement, ABC News reported that Farooqui has traveled to Turkey and was suspected of trying to enter Syria in the past year. That route is notorious for attracting ISIS recruits and sympathizers.

“The FBI is working with the Police Department following the incident that occurred on Saturday evening,” said Special Agent In Charge Adam Lee, who heads the FBI’s Richmond field office. “While I cannot discuss details of the investigation at this time, I do want to reassure the community that we are working to determine the nature of the incident.”

    We need to look at what Western Europe did to contain Islam in the middle ages and do it and more.

    Our country has been at war with RADICAL ISLAM, EVIL ISLAM, PROPONENTS OF ALLAH, whatever you want to call it, since the days of the Thomas Jefferson presidency. The song that begins, “From the shores of Montezuma to the shores of Tripoli”, came about as a result of President Jefferson sending Naval Marines to fight the Islamic pirates who were raiding U.S. ships and killing, capturing, etc. Our problem is that we have a closet Communist Muslim in the White House who has done everything he can to destroy this country as the Quran tells him to. Islam is and will always be at war with the civilized world as referenced in their evil Holy Book, they are to fight, lie to, kill, do anything to convert all of humanity to their perverted and evil religion.

    The FBI is not investigating, it is managing and staging the “FALSE FLAG” attacks to promote Obama’s treasonous anti-gun agenda.

  • Tyronne Shoelaces

    Thanks Obozo for screwing this country. You need to be tried for treason and hung. Put all muslims in Gitmo.

  • There are no Muslims coming here to become Americans they have one goal and that’s to take our country through the government with out firing a shot !

  • reverand on the west coast.

    are you surprised, even the media who should be reporting these things are in the conspearicy. Because the head of the media now are reptilians, and evil as hill.

    Why don’t we practice sawing his head off with a butter knife ? Toss all of them out of here…. they serve no purpose other than death and horror machines.

    Allie’s Ak Bar is a rather low dive near Roanoke. However: 1776 Coalition is Fascist Crap,as atteted to by no less than Matt Barber and Joseph Farah,who should know,both being Major Producers,themselves,of Paranoid Fascist Crap.

  • Steven Kaspar

    These radicalize islamist must all be deported and never be allowed back into the country! He traveled in turkey and tried to get into syria and our government lets him back into the country,the people running TSA,FBI,homeland security,[yea what a joke] should all be fired and bought up on charges of dereliction of duty!

    • sc

      he is not a “radical mo-slum” he is just doing what he has been taught and what his so called “holy book” tells him to do.

  • Bob

    The main terrorists that we have to get rid of is obama and his cabinet!

    • Anouk

      Exactly!

  • daveveselenak

    The FBI and CIA, per Obaa-baa-ma are not to mess with his jihadists! Liberals are insane and have a death wish for supporting this demonic psychopath that is waging jihad against “US” as he single-handedly is turning us into his caliphate! REVOLUTION will be the SOLUTION – guaranteed! Do you suppose that if these were white extremists that we would be hearing the same thing from his “civilian army’ ? WAKE THE FUK UP!

  • Anouk

    Wonder if the Muslim Hussein Obama said “Allah Akbar” every time he succeeds to destroy the America he hates so much.

  • Radical Islam is an Oximoron; Islam is radical. For no other reason should anyone vote for Hillary the retrobate who will extend the Muslim in Chiefs Policies. And he should be tried for treason!! wake up everyone, or you will have Muslims murdering you in your beds. That`s if you don`t die of their deceases first.

  • J.B.

    Most folk are not equpped mentally or emotionally for what is coming to our shores. Is-slime has been dormant for 1000 years. The is-slime our culture has been exposed to and think we know is not “the real thing.” It has new life breathed into it by oil profits, and a newly dedicated gihadist declaration. Do not trust what you think you know about is-slime. Google Charles Martel, in his bio, he is credited with saving Europe and it’s modern way of life, by defeating mooslims and driving them back into camel country, where they have dwelled, waiting for this hour. These are not “radical” islimists. These are “fundamental” islimists, like Coca Cola,…..”it’s the real thing.”

  • Walter Flatt

    INVESTIGATE MY FOOT, IF HE IS A MUSLIM HE IS HERE ILLEGAL ACCORDING TO A LAW PASSED IN 1952, EVEN THOMAS JEFFERSON MADE THEM ILLEGAL 200 YEARS AGO. SO, TAKE HIM OUT AND HANG HIM WITH A ROPE SOAKED IN PIGS BLOOD AND BURY HIM WITH PIG GUTS TO KEEP HIM OUT OF HIS HEAVEN AND 100 VIRGINS.

    • Holy Joe

      Why kill a poor pig to get his blood to soak the rope?

    • Ethel Halstead

      Walter,
      In general I agree with you. However, I truly wish there was another way to handle our current problem. However, after months of research and studying the situation, if there’s another way I haven’t found it. It truly is going to take fighting fire with fire. And if we elect Hilary, I cannot help but wonder if even fire can do the job.
      It strongly appears as if Hilary is both psychotic and schizophrenic. But that does not make her stupid by any means, just totally mad. And there’s a world of difference between stupid and insanely mad. Hilary’s type of insanity is very difficult to detect until it runs its course, because she believes her own lies when she is selling her sack of barnyard manure, and laughs with glee when she fully believes she has accomplished her mission.
      But now, there’s a third personality that is emerging upon the scene, and that personality is much more difficult for her to deal with. Meaning that she has finally reached the point to where she wants the world to know how clever and brilliant she is–and has been– since she first began her political career. But the only way she can accomplish this is by allowing her subconscious mind to unknowing or unwittingly sabotage her whole scheme by revealing her criminal past. Nonetheless, that is just what she is doing. (keeping criminalizing private cell phone. Harboring criminalizing e-mails, etc.)
      I believe she is way to clever not to have known that such would eventually be revealed.
      She has left behind a trail of evil so corrupt that it is simply too
      mind boggling for the average human psyche to even comprehend. Her activities, according to everything I can find about her past, range from getting away with murder to blackmail, espionage and treason. And throughout her career, she has carefully and cleverly selected a multitude of greedy, power-hungry people who could help her, and then pulled them into her evil schemes.
      Now, no one dares cross her, because they all know just to what extent she is capable of going to destroy them. Without batting an eye, she will pull them all down when her own brilliant schemes have been exposed to the world. That’s just another of the many things she has to boast about when it all begins to fall apart.
      her evil is obvious to all but the most moronic, innocent, and
      unassuming people, and those types are totally immune to her wickedness.
      There are other types that exist between the above mentioned, but those vary from totally innocent to totally mean, and cover thousands of different personalities.

      Most of this I have learned from studying psychology, and some from just simple observation and research.

      For instance: Do you know that it’s a fact that most criminals are
      liberals-democrats? Look up the stats.

      RE: The two liberal individuals, male and female, who killed Professor, Ronald Betting by pushing him over a cliff, are not only criminals, they’re obviously very moronic. But that’s what dope does to brains. And its nature’s strange way of removing evil form earth. Because, sooner or later, every person who heads down the evil road of no return, are simply eliminating themselves and their very
      seeds through their own actions and deeds: Gays and lesbians are not reproducing, therefore eliminating their seeds. Women who abort their children are eliminating their seeds by not allowing their young to survive. Women who kill their children through various other means are doing the same. Women who sell their children for the purpose of becoming human bombs, are eliminating their seeds, and at the same time destroying their own souls. Dope and chemical
      abusers are adding so many chemicals to their brains and bodies that it’s changing their body’s chemistry, causing all sorts of bodily dysfunctions. Chemical abusers are also killing themselves by overdosing and through many other methods. Many are not reproducing. If they do, their children are often screwed up when they’re born, and often find ways to eliminate themselves later in life, due to the damaged DNA that created the fetus at conception.

      All of the above is just another form of basic ecology. Nature, not man, is in charge of purifying this earth and removing damaged
      particles. At this point in time, if anyone cares to take notice, more and more of the earth’s evil is being removed by mysterious means.
      And seemingly with no means to prevent or halt the effects of the of
      the mysterious action.

      Evil can be defined by the actions of those who have no qualms about destroying other people by whatever means they can dream up: Murder, perjury, lies, falsely accusing the innocent, and any number of other ways that hurt or injure people who are doing them no harm. Evil has many faces, but all of these faces are attached to fragile bodies that are extremely susceptible to the tiniest
      molecules of very deadly entities.

      The 1965 revision to the Immigration Act removed the 1952 restrictions.

      http://cis.org/1965ImmigrationAct-MassImmigration

      Details

      The Hart-Celler Act of 1965:

      Established the basic structure of today’s immigration law.

      Abolished the national origins quota system (originally established in 1921 and most recently modified in 1952), while attempting to keep immigration to a manageable level. Family reunification became the cornerstone of U.S. immigration policy.

      Allocated 170,000 visas to countries in the Eastern Hemisphere and 120,000 to countries in the Western Hemisphere. This increased the annual ceiling on immigrants from 150,000 to 290,000. Each Eastern-Hemisphere country was allowed an allotment of 20,000 visas, while in the Western Hemisphere there was no per-country limit. This was the first time any numerical limitation had been placed on immigration from the Western Hemisphere. Non-quota immigrants and immediate relatives (i.e., spouses, minor children, and parents of U.S. citizens over the age of 21) were not to be counted as part of either the hemispheric or country ceiling.

      For the first time, gave higher preference to the relatives of American citizens and permanent resident aliens than to applicants with special job skills. The preference system for visa admissions detailed in the law (modified in 1990) was as follows:

      Unmarried adult sons and daughters of U.S. citizens.

      Spouses and children and unmarried sons and daughters of permanent resident aliens.

      Members of the professions and scientists and artists of exceptional ability.

      Married children of U.S. citizens.

      Brothers and sisters of U.S. citizens over age twenty-one.

      Skilled and unskilled workers in occupations for which there is insufficient labor supply.

      Refugees given conditional entry or adjustment — chiefly people from Communist countries and the Middle East.

      Applicants not entitled to preceding preferences — i.e., everyone else.

    ISIS, ISIL, Hamas, Boko Haram, Talisban Hezbollah, … How many names do you need to know? It is ALL just Islam, not ‘radical’ Islam, just Islam. All following the dictates of the Quran.

    • S.J. Jolly

      The Qur’an says a variety of things, some contradictory. Muslims, like Christians and all other religions, pick and choose what parts they want to follow and which to ignore.

      • sc

        party that may be true, but i is also written that if they do not follow the commands of the prophet and allah they will be apostate and the only thing and apostate can expect is the be killed, and no questions or excuses listen too.

        • S.J. Jolly

          If your religious guide says two contradictory things, how do you follow both ? Technically, wouldn’t that make you apostate regardless of which you do?

  • daquain

    Who cares if he has ties to ISIS? He’s a Muslim which is why he said “Allah Akbar” before the knifing. End of story. Keep these people out of our country.

  • Climax

    You all have this completely wrong. I use to play this when I was a kid back in the 1950’s. As kid we would go to different sides of the house with a ball and yell out Allahy Allahy Akbar and then throw the ball over the house. You were suppose to catch it and yell out the same thing and thrown it back. This usually went on until the ball got stuck in the rain gutter.

  • Wayne Peterkin

    What does it matter? It is inspired by radical Islam, jihadists, so who cares whether ISIS is involved? This obsession with ISIS while the world burns from Islamic Terrorism in general is stupid.

    • Jules Miller

      Why do we keep saying “RADICAL” Islam? It is just plain old Islam, according to the written teachings of Islam. The radicals are the ones going against the teachings and not killing people.

        And America is at war with Islam, regardless of what butt-drip Obama says!!!

          true, thanks.

        • reverand on the west coast.

          what do you think about the newly released information about certain being around the world and in this country are reptilians, like elder Senior bush, who also took a part in the JFK murdering, and possilbly even the attempt on REAGANS life. Even the queen of england is a reptile, the Clinton,one or both,and most likely the Obama’s. There has been photos of them shapeshifting. It is scary because with the reptiles being able to shape shift it is hard to know except by the eyes who are reptile and who are not, unless you see them shapeshift. Many of the european leaders know, they have seen the queen shapeshift, it was all over the royals personal web page a while back, so it was something that was put there by the queen, oh, and prince Philip is also and most likely the rest of the royal family, even princess Diana found out about it and inform some of her closer friends. So these things was to enslave us also, who should we be more scared of, and who can we trust?

          • USNavyPatriot

            You pose a good question that needs to be given more attention.

      • reverand on the west coast.

        yeah, and we all need to remember to remind others of that, and let other understand that they are probably also reptilians.

  • Tiger

    Hollering Allah Akbar is usually a dead give away, being as looking back on murders in America wasn’t up until the last how many years that we hear this before Carnage ensues?

    Yeh make sure that it is not work place violence. We knew it was coming and it will increase. Everywhere because today we learned there are 30,000 of ISIS etc in America, two legions filled with hate filled men.

    Thank you O and you people remember Hillary wants 625,000 more.
