    The deceased suspect in the car-and-knife attack on Ohio State University in Columbus has been identified. The college-aged man of Somali descent injured 11 when he crashed his car into a group of people then attacked them with a butcher knife. The incident began when a car rammed into people outside of Watts Hall around 9:40am local time. The driver got out of the car, armed with a butcher knife and began attacking the group, OSU officials said in an afternoon press conference. Officials identified the suspect as OSU student Abdul Razak Ali Artan. He was a legal permanent resident from Somalia, according to NBC News’ Tom Winter.

    Ohio state knifeman ranted about how he was 'sick and tired of seeing my fellow Muslim brothers being killed and tortured' on social media hours before wounding 11

    Somali refugee Abdul Razak Ali Artan posted on Facebook that he was 'sick and tired of seeing my fellow Muslim brothers being killed and tortured' shortly before he went on a slashing rampage at the Ohio State University that left 11 injured.

    Authorities are currently investigating the posts, allegedly made by Artan, which mention radical cleric Anwar Awlaki and accuse America of 'interfering' with other nations. 'I am sick and tired of seeing my fellow Muslim brothers and sisters being killed and tortured EVERYWHERE,' it stated. 'I can't take it anymore. 'America! Stop interfering with other countries, especially Muslim Ummah (communities)... [if] you want us Muslims to stop carrying lone wolf attacks.'

    'We are not weak, remember that,' the post said, according to NBC News. Two hours before that, another post read: 'Forgive and forget. Love.' Artan left at least 11 injured - on of whom critically - after he drove onto the sidewalk at the university on Monday afternoon, mowing down the crowds of innocent bystanders, witnesses say. He then jumped out of the car and began slashing victims with a butcher knife, according to police.

    Wonder if he shouted "Islam is a religion of love and forgiveness" as he was trying to murder those people.... Sad

    Sadly this chap will be treated by the western media as a sick deranged fool for killing other random people for what he believes in, but when the US president orders bombers into some country because he is not happy with the dictator in power there at the moment... whether the US put him there or supported him with weapons when he was behaving or not... will demand respect and be considered the moral leader of the world...

    “The West won the world not by the superiority of its ideas or values or religion […] but rather by its superiority in applying organized violence. Westerners often forget this fact; non-Westerners never do.”
