I took an interest in this subject because someone I love very much lives in Columbus, Ohio, and that person lived in the same apartment complex as the person who committed the terrorist attack at Ohio State University.
I went to Wikipedia to discover more about this neighbor who ran over students with a car and attacked a professor with a machete. What I discovered led me on a quest to discover more about those who have hurt and killed Americans.
I just did a simple search of Wikipedia and discovered that most of the latest terrorist attacks were committed by CHILDREN of immigrants/refugees. (Forgive me if I don’t know all the legal terms.)
1. Nidal Hassan (Fort Hood shooter)–CHILD of Palestinian immigrants:
“Hasan was born in Arlington County, Virginia, to Palestinian parents who immigrated to the U.S. from al-Bireh in the West Bank.” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nidal_Hasan#Early_life)
2. Omar Mateen (Pulse shooter)–CHILD of Afghan immigrants:
“Mateen was born Omar Mir Seddique on November 16, 1986, in New Hyde Park, New York, to Afghan parents. His father, Mir Seddique Mateen, is a Persian-speaking Pashtun who emigrated from Afghanistan in the 1980s.”(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Omar_Mateen#Early_life)
3. Abdul Artan (Ohio State University terrorist)–CHILD of Somalian immigrants:
“Abdul Razak Ali Artan (1998 – November 28, 2016) was a Muslim Somali refugee and legal permanent resident of the United States . . . He moved to the U.S. on a refugee visa with his mother and six siblings in 2014.”(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2016_Ohio_State_University_attack#Perpetrator)
4. Dzhokar Tsarnaev (Boston Marathon Bomber)–CHILD of Chechen refugees:
“Tsarnaev was born in Kyrgyzstan. As a child, he emigrated with his family to Russia and then, when he was eight years old, to the United States under political asylum.” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dzhokhar_Tsarnaev)
5. Tamerlan Tsarnaev (Boston Marathon Bomber)–CHILD of Chechen refugees:
“Tamerlan Tsarnaev was born in the Kalmyk Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic (now Kalmykia), a North Caucasus unit of Russia then in the Soviet Union. He was a permanent resident of the U.S., a Russian citizen and a Kyrgyz citizen.” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tamerlan_Tsarnaev#Personal_background)
6. Syed Rizwan Farook (San Bernardino terrorist attack)–CHILD of Pakistani immigrants:
“Farook was born in Chicago, Illinois, and was a U.S. citizen at the time of the attack. His parents had immigrated from Pakistan.” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rizwan_Farook_and_Tashfeen_Malik#Personal_life)
7. Dahir Adan (Minnesota Mall Stabbing): CHILD of Somalian refugees:
“Dahir A. Adan (c. 1994 – September 17, 2016) was a member of St. Cloud’s Somali-American community. He was born in Kenya and moved to the U.S. at the age of two on a refugee visa, becoming a U.S. citizen in 2008.” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2016_Minnesota_mall_stabbing)
8. Muhammed Youssef Abdulazeez (Chattanooga shootings)–CHILD of Palestinian/Jordanian immigrants.
“Abdulazeez, a naturalized American citizen, was born in Kuwait on September 5, 1990, to Palestinian-Jordanian parentsAbdulazeez migrated to the U.S. with his family in 1996 and became a U.S. citizen in 2003. ….During the Second Intifada, Abdulazeez, then fifteen, traveled with his father to Jamma’in, the village in the West Bank where the father was born, with the goal of acquiring a Palestinian ID” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2015_Chattanooga_shootings)
Like I said, the only reason I was doing this research was because someone I loved very much lived in the same apartment complex as a terrorist. I’ve heard many Christians say that we should at least take in the families with children, but in all of the most recent terrorist attacks it has been the CHILDREN of Muslim immigrants/refugees who have injured and murdered innocent people.
