Multiple reports are now indicating that the Ohio State University attack could have a possible Islamic terror connection, as the suspect has been identified as a Somali refugee.
According to NBC, “The suspect’s name was not released, but law enforcement officials told NBC News he was an 18-year-old Ohio State student, a Somali refugee who was a legal permanent resident of the United States.”
CBS News corroborated that report.

Officials have identified the suspect as Abdul Razaq Ali Artan.
As Conservative Review’s Daniel Horowitz has previously noted, “Since 1993, we’ve admitted roughly 115,000 Somali immigrants nationwide — mostly through the refugee program — at an average clip of 10,000 a year. Almost 100 percent of them are Muslim. Minnesota is home to at least 30,000 Somalis.”
There are at least 38,000 Somali residents in Columbus, Ohio, alone. That number is second only to Minneapolis, which was the nearby scene of another stabbing rampage earlier this year, in which 10 people were wounded.
The story here is not, as some would make it, about guns and an “active shooter.” Rather, it is yet another example of an Islamic terrorist admitted to the United States without proper vetting.
