Gunman Screams 'Allahu Akbar', Obama Sees Motive Unclear

A terrorist described as a "21-year-old Kosovar who lives in Frankfurt," opened fire at the Frankfurt Airport, killing two American soldiers. Kosovo's population is 80% Muslim. The New York Times reports that "the gunman first talked to the military personnel to find out who they were and then opened fire, shouting ‘God is great' in Arabic."

President Obama mentioned the incident at a press conference:

I want to take a brief moment just to say a few words about a tragic event that took place earlier today in Frankfurt, Germany...We don't have all the information yet, and you will be fully briefed as we get more information, but this is a stark reminder of the extraordinary sacrifices that our men and women in uniform are making all around the world to keep us safe, and the dangers that they face all around the globe.

Once again, the President and the mainstream media -- even the report on Fox News -- scrupulously avoid the words "Muslim," or "Islam" and reference to any possible religious motive for the attack. It is true that we don't have "all the information"-not that this has been any impediment in the past for the President to shoot off his mouth-but we do have some extremely strong evidence that the man was an Islamic terrorist. The President however sticks to vague generalities and switches the focus away from the murderer toward the sacrifices of the victims.

"A tragic event"?  "A stark reminder" of "sacrifices" to "keep us safe" from "dangers"? No, Mr. President, it's a stark reminder that the world is full of Muslim males in their twenties who believe that their God has commanded them to murder Americans.
