This is unbelievable. This has now become characteristic of terror attacks: the fact that they are motivated by Islam.
Daily Mail – In a rambling press conference this afternoon lawyers for the family of San Bernardino shooter Syed Farook have insisted there is ‘no evidence’ the attacks are linked to terror groups such as ISIS.
Despite FBI agents saying earlier today that they are investigating the shooting as an act of terrorism, lawyers David Chesley and Mohammed Abuershaid rebutted that analysis this evening.
Instead Chesley blamed the media and investigators for linking the attacks to terrorism, saying: ‘There hasn’t been any smoking gun evidence that they were part of a particular cell or any group.’
Chesley said it was unfair to blame the attacks on radical Muslims when attacks on Planned Parenthood facilities and abortion clinics are not blamed on extremist Christians.
During the attacks Syed’s Pakistani wife, Tashfeen Malik, is believed to have posted online pledging her support to ISIS leader Abu Bakar Al-Baghdadi.
Since then the terror group has praised the attack, branding Syed and Tashfeen as ‘lone wolves’ – the name given to terror killers who are radicalized online before carrying out attacks without receiving training from the group itself.
