As the tragedy of the shooting at Salt Lake City's Trolley Square unfolded it became clear that the perpetrator was an 18 year old Bosnian refugee named Sulejman Talovic.
The Bosnian refugee community in the United States is of Muslim background and Sulejman is a Muslim derivation of Solomon so there's little doubt that he is a Muslim though you probably wouldn't know it from mainstream media reporting. As I write this, nearly a day after the events took place, Google News only returns 4 results for the two words - Talovic Muslim.
At a time when we're engaged in a worldwide struggle against radical Islam you would have thought that someone in the MSM would have gone 1+1=2 and at least speculated that there might be some element of jihad involved. Unfortunately, all too often for the MSM, 1+1=nothing to see here, move along. It may well be the case that he had some other grievance that drove him to do what he did. We don't know that yet. But what if he's not alone? The first one of a cell? Surely the old warning system can be raised from green - it's all OK to go about your business - to orange - proceed with caution for a while?
How long before CAIR complains about his identification as a Muslim and possible motive of jihad?
