The name of the popular Middle Eastern restaurant where the murderous machete attack took place is Nazareth — the childhood home of Jesus. The owner is an “outspoken Christian” from Israel. Law enforcement said “there’s nothing to lead us to believe this is anything more than a random attack.” Right off the bat they are saying it isn’t terror. Which means it’s terror.

One witness told My Fox 28 Columbus that the scene in the restaurant was pure “carnage” and it seemed like a “systematic attack.”

Police shot and killed a man who stormed into a central Ohio restaurant wielding a machete and randomly attacking people as they sat unsuspectingly at their dinner tables, authorities said.

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.

Two people who were inside the restaurant at the time described the scene to reporter Rob Wells as “carnage” saying it seemed like a “systematic attack.”… (ABC6)

“There’s blood all over inside the restaurant,” Steven Bass, Karen’s husband, told WSYX.

The machete wielding savage ask the owner where he was from (Christian from Israel) and came back an hour later swinging.

“[He] immediately began swinging a machete at customers and employees inside,” Sgt. Rich Weiner with the Columbus Police Department said. “There was no rhyme or reason as to who he was going after as soon as he walked in, according to some of the witnesses.”

One comment at Free Republic said, “Nazareth’s is just around the corner from our home. My wife and I go there often. They have wonderful Greek food. Hanie, is the very popular owner. He engages with the customers and is very jovial.

“The latest news is that the FBI is investigating as a possible terrorist act, but no detail as of yet. This is in a very quiet neighborhood with little crime. Gahanna is kind of a all-American town. Their weekly newspaper lists the previous week’s crimes. I read it for chuckles as they consist of things like, woman notified police of a loud noise, mailbox knocked over, neighbor complained of dog poop on his porch. We’ve lived here for 15 years and nothing like this before – at least this close to our home.”

When the police caught up with the savage:

The suspect eventually made it out of the vehicle with a machete and another knife in hand.

Then, “he lunged across the hood at the officers,” Weiner said. “Another officer in a cruiser fired a couple shots at him and put him down.” (FOX 24)

The number of people attacked has not been confirmed, 10tv.com reports, but one is in critical condition. MyFox28Columbus.com reports two people are in critical condition. The Columbus Dispatch reports six people were transported to the hospital.

“He’s famous for cruising the restaurant with his aluminum bat and asking if folks are ready to leave. Maybe he should have had the bat by the cash register tonight.”

“Police kill man they say attacked restaurant patrons with machete,” By Rick Rouan & Earl Rinehart, The Columbus Dispatch • Thursday February 11, 2016:

Columbus police say a man came into the restaurant and began hacking people with a machete, sending four of them to area hospitals and critically injuring at least one.He was shot and killed by police after they tracked him down about 5 miles from the restaurant.

As of late Thursday, police hadn’t released the names of those injured or the name of the man who was killed by officers.

It’s unclear why he did what he did.

Sgt. Rich Weiner, a spokesman for the Police Division, said “there’s nothing to lead us to believe this is anything more than a random attack.” The FBI also is investigating but Weiner wouldn’t say why.

Weiner said the man first came into the restaurant about 5:30 p.m. and talked with an employee. It’s unclear whether it was an argument, but he returned about a half-hour later with a machete and attacked a couple eating dinner.

Weiner said that others came to their rescue and also were injured. He said four were hospitalized, including one with serious injuries that required surgery. All are expected to survive.

Zakas said there were no indications recently that anything was wrong. She worked Wednesday night without incident.

“Everything seemed fine,” she said. “Nobody has mentioned issues or problems with anyone.”

Most people leave the restaurant smiling, she said. On Thursday nights, Foley draws a crowd. Sometimes there are parties and kids dancing, she said.

“It’s usually packed on Thursday night,” she said. “It’s got an amazing reputation. This restaurant has an amazing reputation. I just can’t imagine.”

The restaurant is owned by Hany Baransi, who could be seen talking with police behind the crime-scene tape but couldn’t be reached for comment.

Police say the man with the machete fled the restaurant, 5239 N. Hamilton Rd., and was stopped by police off Stelzer Road, just south of Montclair Drive.

He was shot by police, Weiner said, after he got out of his car with the machete in a threatening manner. Two officers fired guns and the man died at OhioHealth Grant Medical Center at 6:24 p.m.

Jason Baker, who lives in New Albany, was headed to a different restaurant in the same shopping plaza when he saw the police cars and ambulances.

When he arrived at Chestnut Hill IV plaza, Baker said he saw one of the victims inside the nearby Carpet One store. The other victims were being helped in the restaurant. There was a significant amount of blood on the sidewalk outside the restaurant, he said.

One of the victims had his arms and a hand bandaged. He heard the man say, “I was trying to help other people. He attacked me.”

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Police shot and killed a man Thursday night who attacked restaurant patrons with a machete, reports say.

Police tell the Associated Press the man walked into a Mediterranean restaurant, Nazareth Restaurant in Northeast Columbus, and attacked several people.

The suspect drove off and was later cornered on a road near Easton Town Center shopping complex, about five miles from the restaurant, where he was shot by police during a confrontation. The unidentified suspect was taken to a hospital but died of his wounds.

The number of people attacked has not been confirmed, 10tv.com reports, but four were taken to the hospital and two are in critical condition. The Columbus Dispatch reports six people were transported to the hospital.

“There were a lot of witnesses, a lot of people that our investigators have to interview,” police spokesperson Sgt. Rich Weiner tells 10tv.com. “So right now we have a long road ahead of us for the rest of the night.”

According to 10tv.com, witnesses said the man entered the restaurant and asked for the manager, who wasn’t there. He then left.

He returned about 30 minutes later and, without speaking, began attacking diners, reports say. About 20 people, including two babies, were in the restaurant at the time of the attack.

“He looked straight at me but he went over to the booths and just started going down the booths,” a waitress tells 10tv.com. “It all seemed to happen in slow motion.”

Weiner says people, including employees, began throwing chairs at the suspect, nbc4i.com reports. The man then walked out of the restaurant and drove off.

Witnesses were able to get a description of the vehicle and also took video to help police, Weiner says.

A special duty officer at Easton Town Center spotted the suspect’s car, and police were able to surround the vehicle. Police say they used a Taser on the man but it had no effect.

The man then reportedly lunged at police with the machete and knife and an officer fired two shots, nbc4i.com reports.

      Today, thanks to the police, there is one less.

      • iisac bartender

        They were too late , he should have met his faith before he hacked and slashed. Like all Constitutionalist know police can’t protect you they can only clean up after the fact. And when seconds count they are minutes away.

        • Mahou Shoujo

          In this case they “got their man” it is hard to stage a preemptive shooting on a criminal before they commit a crime, though in muslims case, there may be reason to do so.

    • Jose Israel Martinez

      WRONG! This is NOT a Muslim extremist but a TRUE follower of TRUE Islam, nothing extreme about following one’s religion. All Muslims are sleeping cells, including your peace loving Muslim neighbor. Waiting for the marching orders from their Imams.

    How many guess it is a recent refugee placed in Ohio from a Shariah compliant country?

    • roger

      Oh boy, that’s a hard one, umm..lets see now, should I say a Christian just going home from a church gathering ? Nah, its got to be a Jewish rabbi on his way to the Synagogue, Hand on chin, perplexed as to the motive.

      • Larenzo1

        I But it was one of those rabid Methodist. The fine Methodist people I believe will understand the snark.

        • moneekwa

          Oh, I thought maybe it was Buddhists. Or the Hare Krishnas. But maybe it was Amish people? Did they say he fled in a car? Or was it a horse buggy?

          I’m sure of one thing, it was “nothing to do with islam” at least until they find a IS membership card in his wallet, or stuff on his computer, and eventually HAVE to admit it was terror. Same as they did it in San Bernadino. If they try to blow sunshine up our you-know-where, it is obvious we’re being deceived.

          • mtmla

            Even if they conclude it’s terrorism, they’ll say it has nothing to do with islam. Like ISIS calls itself Islamic State, but the experts still say it has nothing to do with isla. Maybe all the horrific things Mohammed did had nothing to do with islam..

          • mtmla

            When a mohammedan does a crime, he’s called a lone wolf and it has nothing to do with islam. When a caucasian does a crime, the whole caucasian population and the whole country is to blame.

        • Drew the Infidel

          Understood OK. The difference between us Methodists and other Protestants is that we will at least speak to each other in the liquor store.

          • Larenzo1

            I hope so. Unless you argue over the best single malt.

      • iisac bartender

        Maybe it was a Mormon out spreading the word of Joseph Smith.

    • MattBracken

      Our PC news “reporters” are still in PC denial.
      If the perp’s name was Clem Smith, we’d already know it.
      And even if they use an American name like Terrel Smith, don’t be surprised if you find buried in the article that Terrel changed his name to Mohammed in prison, when he converted to Islam. That will be buried almost out of reach.

      • farflung

        Restaurant owner is probably a Maronite Christian, like my ancestery. The Muslims hate them as much as the Jews. CC here always on the alert, and trust no Arab no matter the circumstances.

        • MattBracken

          Amen. Even a fully ‘Westernized’ Muslim is susceptible to reversion aka “sudden jihad syndrome.” A lifetime of Islamic sin can be wiped clean with an act of holy jihad murder. I think of the Egypt Air pilot as a classic example.

        • wilypagan

          The Maronite Christians are Arabs, genius.

          • farflung

            Wrong A-hole. They are the Phoenicians, those that built Carthage and roamed the oceans sailed even to the New World.

          • wilypagan

            The definition of Arab is someone from an Arabic speaking country. I know many Arab Christians from Lebanon. It is the Greek Orthodox who might claim to be descended from the “Phoenicians”. The Catholic Maronites are descendants of the European Crusaders and the Arabs. The Phoenicians as a culture were long gone by the time the Crusaders were building their castles. Learn some history and try to express yourself without using profanity.

          • iisac bartender

            Arabs are not the problem the problem is Islamist

          • IzlamIsTyranny

            “Islamist” yet another dishonest neologism designed to obfuscate the ugly truth about islam.

          • farflung

            May have been a bit harsh, but yes I will answer to genius since my IQ is 132, but in the context you used “GENIUS’ it was very ignorant. Some times it is best to leave discussions go for it is repetitive and much like argue with a drunk.

          • wilypagan

            Pathetic response. Learn to write proper English.

          • farflung

            You do not know the difference between “PONTIFICATION AND FORNICATION”

      • Rob Porter

        Can you imagine such dregs of humanity dominating the world? “Sharia the true solution. Freedom go to hell”. It says it all. Frankly, I’d happily napalm this lot, but at the least ship them back to where they or their family migrated.

        • MattBracken

          They do dominate a big chunk of the world, and it’s getting bigger.

          • Rob Porter

            You are right, Matt, and it’s getting bigger to some extent through Western stupidity driven by political correctness, ignorance and cowardice. Western leadership is worse then pathetic.
            I often refer to what Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn said in his Harvard Commencement Address in 1978, a speech that upset many academics and others. The truth angered them: “The Western world has lost its civic courage, both as a whole and separately, in each country, in each government, in each political party, and, of course, in the United Nations. A decline in courage may be the most striking feature that an outside observer notices in the West today. Such a decline in courage is particularly noticeable among the ruling and intellectual elites, causing an impression of a loss of courage by the entire society. There are many courageous individuals, but they have no determining influence on public life.
            “Political and intellectual functionaries exhibit this depressing passivity and perplexity in their actions and in their statements, and even more so in their self-serving rationales as to how realistic, reasonable, and intellectually and even morally justified it is to base state policies on weakness and cowardice.” This week in a letter I sent this to David Gergen at Harvard. Apart from being a prof he’s an analyst and commentator for CNN, former adviser to U.S. presidents – and a man who specializes in ‘running with the hares and hunting with the hounds’, a man who exemplifies what Solzhenitsyn contemptuously condemned in Western “intellectual elites”.

            When the West needs strength, it has weak, cowardly and stupid leaders. Obama is simply evil and in bed with Islam – yet he stays because of the cowardly opposition.

    • franc1sc0

      The fact that the FBI was involved so quickly and they aren’t releasing a name (until they take-down and sanatize the attacker’s social media pages) are reasons to suspect that you are right.

  • Just Straight Shooting

    Just another one of obama’s “boys”, making him and his satanic allah proud…

    • Really?

      Obama has been flooding our country with his Islamic brothers and quietly placing them in cities and towns all across the United States for years. He wants to keep importing tens of thousands more of these sleeper terrorists to destroy our country and “Fundamentally Transform America”. This is done on purpose. It is pre-meditated. Wake up America! Arm yourselves. This is really happening. Conceal carry!

      • Just Straight Shooting

        That is exactly what is happening. And we need to wake up. It’s not just obama doing, but everyone who voted for him, every one who enables him, everyone who does nothing to stop him.

        obama can do nothing on his own. Without the help and backing of all the democrats and rinos his efforts would not take hold. It is the vast confederacy of fools that have empowered him and aids him in his destruction of America that is the worst and most dangerous problem that America faces. They are all the enemy within, every single one of them.

  • David

    The police put him down. That’s quite apt, really. Rabid animals have to be ‘put down’ at some point

    • Jack

      The problem now however is they can’t interrogate him to discover any undocumented information. Also a good NRA example of how gun ownership & Conceal&Carry is vital.

        • Vandergrift01

          The FBI was at his apartment all night gathering intel.

          • Pray Hard

            Gathering intel that they won’t do one f’ing thing with.

      • President Obongo can go to the guy’s mosque and pray and snuggle with his imam and rail against whitey etc., that’s all the after-action follow up necessary as usual. Oh, and train FBI/DHS personnel to never suspect the nice peaceful sand Moslems of anything

        • Vandergrift01

          Some asshat is now trying to report that the attacker was a baptist. Seriously?

            Before you know it, he’ll be a white Christian.

        • karl59

          That is because Moslems are telling
          FBI people not to profile Moslems.

          • Pray Hard

            Apparently, you know that the Mobama administration is Moslem.

          • mtmla

            He filled the WH with the Muslim Brotherhood. They are his advisors.

          • Rob Porter

            That’s because Obama is telling the FBI not to profile Muslims and the FBI leadership is too cowardly and stupid to do the right thing for the country and their society.

        • Pray Hard

          You can bet that he’ll send a congratulatory note to the mosque about their contributions to America.

      • Spazznout

        I am sure he was documented. I live in Columbus Ohio, the city where the terrorist lived. Our governor Mike Coleman in partnership with the Obama administration, resettled thousands of Muslim Somalians in the northeast part of our city in 2 large apartment complexes. This is NOT the first time terror has come out of these neighborhoods. Just last year there were several men charged with terror charges with at least one living in the same area as this terrorist.

        Our Mayor Coleman allowed the Muslims to be brought in on a bribe essential. The government paid Coleman at a time he was facing a terrible budget during the height of the crisis and was facing a political firestorm.

        Now we get to pay and continue to pay.,

        • franc1sc0

          Quid pro Quo; Coleman’s wife’s DUI-accident charges suddenly weren’t such a big problem so she only served 3 days in jail and then later the Coleman home sold to a foreign business owner at 30% above market value.

        • smith0288

          Coleman? He’s the former Mayor of Columbus. Kasich is governer. You sure you live in Columbus?

            Coleman was the mayor before him.
            Why are you even mentioning the governor. I did not as he is NOT part of this story really.
            It was under mayor colemans administration that these Somalian refugees were resettled in Columbus.

          • smith0288

            Because you said “Our governor Mike Coleman in partnership with the Obama….”. That’s why.

      • Millionmileman

        The attack was typical of what occurs every day in Israel and I’m glad the police were able to not pay attention to the rantings of Bernie Sanders, in last night’s debate. They rightly used the normal Israeli response.

Unlike Michael Brown, this victims were blameless. Where are the Obama led protests.

        Mochetebar would have said “alahu akbar. I did it for islam” and the cops would have said “classic workplace violence”. Odumber would have opened up an investigation by the FBI in the sleepy town for racism and cops would have been written up by the new york slimes “islamaphobia out of control at the pizzeria”.

          2) Use the RICO statutes to close down all mosques as complicit in an organized crime syndicate. Islam fits this issue to a T. Arrest any mullahs involved in incitement or money laundering.
          3) Track back the money. If Saudi money involved, zero tolerance. Confiscate it all. The same for any others.
          4) Use military power to destroy any and all terror organizations anywhere.
          5) Stop any foreign aid to any Muslim country found complicit in terror funding. That includes Pakistan.
          6) Stop all Muslim immigration (Trump).

            90% of Muslims HATE Israel and the Jews. There is no sugarcoating this sad reality.
            Youth Protection Agency should follow up with the young Muslim kids in the schools to ensure they are not being indoctrinated at home into hating other groups.
            My ex-PM Harper (Canada) stated he was more worried about home indoctrination and radicalization than terror attacks.

            Islam is rabidly and explicitly antisemitic. I’ve never read/heard/seen a single muslim anywhere categorically repudiate/denounce any of the antisemitic vomit found in the holey quranus…EVAH.

          • Sunshine

            I know many Muslims. Was with one for 16 years (a secret apostate – even his family and friends didn’t know). I also helped out a few Muslims in recent years. I hereby confirm they ALL hate the Jews. They won’t speak about it openly, only in private circles.
            Those Muslims that respect Jews are few and far between – aka reformists. They are rejected by their own.
            We live in dangerous times whereby our own leaders do not know the source of the danger: all gullible and uninformed people. Reminds me of the Nazi movement when it started.

          • Pray Hard

            They’re neither gullible nor uninformed. They’re evil.

          • Steve

            Yes, the muslims you know and have known afraid to speak up are testament to the cult beast and its mind intimidation control. David may have been small in stature but he was big in heart facing Goliath. When people stand up as reformers though maybe 1 or 2 at first it can often be the start of big changes. However, many have left islam, impossible in their estimation, to reform. Either way, reform or leaving, it would be beneficial to the west. Those quiet muslims like the quiet germans indirectly help the extremists among them. If they are trying to be true americans they will make the right choice.

          • Sunshine

            The only way to reform Islam is to have their ideal guy (PBUH) die early, before his migration to Medina. Then, at least 60% of their noble holy book will be eliminated.
            That ideal guy is quite the problem. I always say that I admire Islamic State because they are honest: they are simply following in the footsteps of their ideal guy (PBUH). This cannot be denied (hadiths, Sira).
            I agree with you re the quiet ones. Most of them know but refuse to talk about it. And those that don’t know, refuse to listen.
            As to reformers, same problem: they refuse to address the issue of the ideal guy (PBUH). Notice they never talk about him. You cannot reform the book without first dealing with the guy.

          • Steve

            I appreciate your input and it is quite a thing to contemplate that it would be possible for an islamic reform. In any event as things are going they will have to be put in their place. The thing the west must work for is electorate control preferably over mass uprisings in order to not play into the martial control that would only make things worse. They must be fought economically and legally in every way possible to stop their encroachments on trying to subdue the west. The pbuh medina has already been abrogated into the typically muslim life so an off shoot might be possible by abrogating the mecca forward but i won’t hold my breath.

          • Sunshine

            I have Muslim acquaintances and one very close friend, an Islamist. I
            was with a Muslim for 16 years (secret apostate – family and friends
            didn’t know). I was the ONLY Infidel within their inner circle,
            although a naive one at the time.
            My Islamist friend, Younes: he
            loves decapitation, limb amputations, multiple wives, wife beating,
            women are inferior, he rejoiced with utmost glee at the Charlie Hebdo
            slaughter… and more.
            When I mentioned Charlie Hebdo to my Muslim acquaintances, not a peep in reply – redirection of conversation.
            Younes has smiling eyes, pretty smile, loves
            wine, smokes ‘pot’, when you disprove his statements with hadith or
            Qur’an verses – he says it is Islamophobia or mistranslated… I am tiptoeing re ideal guy (PBUH) with Younes…
            What to do? It is OUR DUTY to learn the doctrine through a critical thinking perspective and confront them with it. It is our only salvation.

            Re “home indoctrination and radicalization,”when that becomes a constant concern the question that should arise is whether there is any point in permitting Muslim immigration. I say ‘no’ because even if parents are nominal Muslims there is no assurance that children won’t become radicalized. In fact I know a Muslim, now in his 50s who was once nominal and with whom I got on well, but then he transformed into raving moron Muslim, goes to the mosque each day and noon and comes back a foul-mouthed slob, his hatred of Jews just insane. He brought all his garbage baggage to Canada from Lebanon and his friend were no different. There is no telling how often this transformation occurs so what’s the point of allowing in more Muslims.
            Now Canada has a complete imbecile at the wheel so we will see how his infantile idiocy impacts on the country. The fact is, an idiotic electorate chose this fool as the country’s ‘leader’.

          • Steve

            The hate to the jews by muslims reminds me of the scapegoating that hitler used to control the masses but the islamists seem to have taken it to an entirely new level of promotion for otherwise average or lowlife people to feel some delusion of power and grandeur though it typically amounts to a few seconds of violence and death as a sucker for the cult. Damn, not even a retired bombers pension.

          • Steve

            I still believe there are payoffs involved in this and other similar government situations and possible clandestine mind control events affecting the actions of world “leaders”. It sounds odd but there is so much unusual activity going on that there is cause for concern. According to a growing consensus, there appears to be a worldwide progressive socialist movement but it fails to contemplate how these progressives will control the islamist cult beast if it overcomes the west.

          • Rob Hoey

            1) the left really doesn’t want to go beyond PC–they so far have refused to converse on this.
            2) to do that you would need to declassify Islam and label it a cult. That will not be an easy task under the Constitution-although I agree that it is. I honestly don’t see that happening.
            3) great idea–I’m totally on board with it
            4) easy to say, difficult as hell to do. To make it easy, we would incur the wrath of the world because we would have to kill a lot of civilians, I believe. I don not believe, in any way, that we should have these crazy rules of engagement, but we can’t ignore our moral grounding as the best nation on earth. I honestly think we need to get a hell of a lot of Muslims on board with the process. My wife is–but she’s an apostate and the bastards would kill her if they could.
            5) and 6) I’m down for that

      • Rob Porter

        Is that so? How are you going to “defeat this enemy”? By waiting for the police to arrive and shoot a criminal or terrorist? Tell me, a foreigner, we constantly hear and read about Americans owning guns, so why in this age with Muslims savages all over, did no one in the restaurant or the restaurant owner have a gun in their possession with which to gun down an attacker?

        Let me tell you the difference. Two armed black men walked into a Johannesburg, South Africa, pub in a suburb next door to where I once lived. They began pistol whipping white patrons, so one of the patrons took out his pistol and shot dead both of these criminals. That what you do in these violent times, carry a weapon if you are permitted to own one and shoot dead Muslim terrorist vermin while they are attacking people. In another case, just outside Cape Town a white businessman walked out of his office in an area called Paarden Eiland. He was carrying documents in his hand. Outside he found himself confronted by three armed black men. I don’t know how he managed it, maybe in the violent mess South Africa has become under black rule, he had his gun handy, but whatever the case he shot all three dead. Now that is what you do. You don’t wait for the police to arrive, you protect yourself and beforehand become proficient with a weapon or weapons you own.

        Oh yes, in the case of the pub, when the police arrived the patrons (laughingly) told the police they had never before seen the man who shot dead these criminals and afterwards walked out.

            My hat off to you and your wife. I wish everyone would take heed. Even if they don’t enjoy it “for fun”, it makes sense to protect yourself. Why be an unnecessary victim? Rather let the terrorists die and go to hell to find their 72 old hags. I was amazed after the San Bernardino massacre to realize that not one among those 14 murdered had a weapon. I must say that when doing military service I enjoyed practice with a whole variety of weapons, rifles, machine guns and sub-machine machines guns like the Israeli uzi.

          For an example of the two men, Ali would enjoy performing little magic tricks and then he would show how they were done explaining that it is forbidden to deceive in Islam. This is of course untrue, but it seemed he really believed that. Cat Stevens has gone on record defending the penalty of death for leaving Islam. It was quite hypocritical of him to perform for the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame.

    ASks the owner where hes from – then returns and tries to murder everyone and the police spokesperson says theres nothing to indicate it was more than a ” random attack ” ? If the owner had been from Syria or Iraq I wonder if it would’ve happened

  • RCQ_92130

    see if Obastard has a beer summit with the terrorist.

    Oops! Can’t. He’s dead. Bwaaa haaa haaa.

  • doctorivy

    Here’s why I’m suspicious and angry: If I’m a cop and someone wielding a machete attacks patrons at a restaurant named NAZARETH, my first thought is that it is a possible terror attack by a Muslim. When I find out the guy is named Mohammad I’m going to be more suspicious. So why go out and say I have no reason to suspect it’s anything other than a “random” attack? Why not just SHUT UP and offer NO comment? Or, state the obvious: Nazareth is the birth place of Jesus and the attacker is named Mohammed…draw your own conclusions. No, this is just further proof that the media has been co-opted by enemies of America and all they do is spew propaganda and talking points from the far left.

  • Just Straight Shooting

    Just as I expected, his name is mohammad… tells me everything I need to know.

    “CBS News has learned that investigators have identified the suspected attacker as Mohammad Barry. CBS News homeland security correspondent Jeff Pegues reports that investigators were running down leads to try to determine if the attack was somehow tied to terrorist organizations.”

    Just google [mohammad barry ohio]

  • doctorivy

    Gee, isn’t Donald Trump CRAZY for calling of the temporary ban of Muslims until we can accurately vet them? Just nuts.

    • Aaron

      What an unkind man. How dare he.

  • “Gods don’t kill people. People with gods kill people.” Sad to see yet another attack spawned by disagreements over an imaginary sky-wizard.

    • Aaron

      I liked your comment. But atheists also kill over other things. Most crimes are not committed because of religious beliefs.

    • Black Eagle

      Yes but atheists look instead to Big Brother Wizards, and actually in the 20th Century proved to be far more deadly than the sky-wizards. Beyond that, moral equivalence attitudes claiming equal dangerousness between Allah/Muslims and Jesus/Christianity today are patently false. Maybe during the time of the Inquisition, but not today.

    • IzlamIsTyranny

      Atheists like Mao, Pol Pot and Stalin had no problems collectively slaughtering more people than any and all Christian atrocities put together.
      BTW, your atheitard paradise already awaits you in the here and now. It’s called N. Korea dirtbag.

  • Evil Liberal

    They are reporting that he was a Somali

    CHAIRS. If you’re in a situation like that without a gun, and the restaurant has chairs, you can pick up a chair to bash the assailant with. It also makes an excellent shield at the same time. Blows across the back, back of the knees, groin, head, hands. If several protectors are attacking the assailant at once, with chairs, there’s a good chance he’ll fall or lose his weapon. And you can continue the beat-down with chairs until he is subdued. The only reason I mention it, is that people don’t usually think about picking up chairs, and just trust disable an assailant with their bodies. In knife attacks, that can end with fatalities to the protectors.

    • Aaron

      Clarification: if the assailant is on jihadi drugs, extreme, unrelenting force (with chairs if you’re using them) will have to be used until someone with a gun can take the assailant down. Tasers won’t work. Nothing but a clear shot or two or three.

  • Infedel48

    Ahahahah good shooting officer….save the Taxpayers some money….Kudus

  • Jason Schneider

    I live in Columbus and have been to this restaurant several times. I’ve been aware that Columbus has the second largest Somalian population in the USA and I’ve really just been waiting for this to happen. This is a tragedy and yet another hate crime against the Jews that is going to be white washed by Muslims and ignorant regressive leftists as what happens when a country is Islamophobic.

  • concerned

    How long does it take to determine if this was a terrorist act ????

  • rebel_rectified

    Name the wretch, please.

  • Silverback

    The police shot “a man” what pray tell was “the man’s ” name?
    Any bets ?

      Mohammed Barry.

  • Warren

    The good news is that he was shot dead.

  • Dr. Doomsday

    They wonder why he did what he did, and nobody seemed to know of any problems. Learn this lesson: He did it because he is a Muslim nutjob. You will never figure out these kinds of things if you keep looking at it like its a normal guy who snapped for some reason. Stop using the “what would I do?” method. Its not about your ideas, its about their sick ideology.

    Government reaction??? “We must ban guns”… “We must ban Christianity”… “Muslims are your friends”… “Israeli’s are evil”… “Americans are evil”… “Newspeak is the way”… BULLCRAP!!!

  • murraydad

    Haven’t released the attacker’s name yet. Probably because it sounds Arab. Just a guess.

  • cbunix23

    I suspected the perp was a Somali Muslim when I read where he was killed. I was right. http://defense-training.com/2016/islamic-terrorists-today/

  • cbunix23

    This is local to me. I was in front of Nazareth a few minutes ago and confirm it is NOT a gun free zone. TV news crews are here so I cannot take a photo.

  • 0331

    i like how there is no description of the suspect, even though he was shot and killed by police and they have a body, what that tells me is he was a radical Islamist.

  • Black Eagle

  • Jane Goodwin

    Another terror attack.

  • Steve

    These incidents are similar to “Manchurian Candidate” scenarios. I wonder if some of these inbred islamist morons are being programed over and above the brainwashing of the kookran.

  • The Last English Prince

    They don’t do “random” when they attack. That is a myth. Islam ambushes. Geller knows that little fact.

    • Steve

      Jonathan Gilliam has a facebook site and is on the patriot channel 125 of sirius radio
      https://www.facebook.com/Jonathangilliamuscs/ He has some really good insights and strategies for fighting the enemy. One thing he was talking about tonight is how the progressive agenda attempts to minimize or eliminate the threat of “random” islamic home ground violence calling it “lonewolf”. Most islamists committing terrorism have given clues and attack vulnerable targeted people in “ambush” style as you mention. Yet it is minimized and not dealt with appropriately.

      The thing an average person can do is practice awareness and be prepared such as with concealed carry weapon or at least try to do group activities in gun free zones. Its possible to do more but there has to be a plan. I’ve been accused of being hyper vigilant and maybe too prepared but sadly there may be little choice unless you want to live on top of a mountain or in a cave. The enemy is here and if things don’t change for the better soon the united states will be like the EU and the UK withing 10-15 years.

          Yes, Good informative update. One of the most useful things i’ve found about these blogs is the education from some of the posts and hopefully drive the incentive to get more involved in some way. Your posting and the article make it clear how there is the danger of government sweeping the truth of this islamist threat under the rug and unfortunately people forget significant events or don’t even realize when they happen. I often think about how i used to feel before 9-11 and how i feel today and realize a good deal of my outlook has been shaped by all the islamist terrorism in the world though i can’t remember every event. I think people must accept that they have to try to gain a perspective on this for preparation not as some morbid curiosity but because there is real possibility of threat from the enemy. Its easy to keep the rose glasses on but its an illusion of the world as we know it today. On the other hand, I try to enjoy life with more respect for each day.

    “Nothing to indicate it was terrorism”.
    Really?
    “The people” aren’t stupid. Authorities might as well not bother trying to deceive us by covering up terrorism when it happens. WE KNOW and we’re watching. So, media and authorities, give it a rest. Don’t make any judgement if you don’t want to say it is terrorism. Just don’t say it isn’t.

  • “There was no rhyme or reason as to who he was going after as soon as he walked in, according to some of the witnesses.” – There was plenty of “rhyme and reason” since all the diners were unbelievers or committing blasphemy by eating at a Christian’s restaurant, and worse and Israeli’s restaurant. Moslems can’t allow them to live in their pure islamic world.

  • Lublin

    Thanks for expressing my thoughts. Are the police just trying to cover up the obvious or are they really that dumb. As soon as I heard of the first name of the attacker in conjunction with the name of the restaurant, the religion of the owner of the restaurant and saw the Israeli and American flag displayed in the restaurant; it was obvious that this was a case of terrorism done in the name of Islam.

  • Terrorists in Ohio

    Ohio? When I first read this article I thought it happened in the Middle East I can’t believe this murderous attack took place in Ohio.

    I wonder if the killer was a Syrian refugee? Probably a Muslim. Thanks to Obama the US has imported thousands of these killers.

    Expect more stories like this just don’t expect to see this in the media or newspapers they will keep covering up as long as they can.

    I bet the killer was a Muslim.

  • Animal rescue

    CNN-SCUM Say they haven’t released the name of the attacker although we already know the name same as all the killers involved MUHAMMAD

  • Aben Gavirol

    Do it the Israeli way—kill the terrorist on the spot.

  • mtmla

    The man was from Somalia and his name is …guess…..Mohammed Barry (related to the iman in the WH?).Now, guess again…What was his religion??? Clue..he’s getting 72 virgins and boys as pretty as pearls… Answer: Islam , the religion of peace and tolerance… and it has nothing to do with terrorism. It’s workplace violence. I wish the innocent victims full recovery.

  • Erickshian

    How can this not be a terrorist attack. It was pre meditated and thought out. Muslims always say that they are not responsible for the few, but perhaps if they were, actions such as this would not occur or occur more frequently

  • Linda

    Another federally protected muslim terrorist strikes again.
    FBI protected this terrorist. They knew him, yet they let him walk the
    streets of America, they knew he would strike. This is the problem with
    America.
    The terrorists are protected under Obama’s orders.

    Wake up pople. Get armed and trained.

  • Dave Mc

    Situations like this are why OH people can be permitted to carry concealed weapons. A bill was proposed April of last year to remove restrictions for residents, not sure if it passed yet. Could prevent much harm to innocents in these situations.

  • HolylandIsraelTours

    What else needs to go down before libtards get the message?

  • Deedra

    The restaurant is closing . The owner is going back to Israel. Evil wins.
