Salt Lake City Killer Was a Muslim: Don’t say I told you so…
The media did everything they could to avoid mentioning it, but it’s confirmed today that the mass murderer who terrorized a mall in Salt Lake City was a Bosnian Muslim:
Police said Sulaiman Talovic had a juvenile record of only four minor offenses. None of his arrests were for violent crimes.
The man had lived at a house with his mother and three younger sisters near the Utah State Fairpark. Neither his mother nor his sisters would answer the door or respond to phone calls Tuesday, although a person inside would pick up the phone and then quickly hang up.
Ajka Omerovic, who said she was Talovic’s aunt, visited the home Tuesday afternoon. She told the Deseret Morning News that Talovic had been “a good boy.” She said the family are Muslims from Bosnia who had lived in the vicinity of Sarajevo.
* Its all our fault, you see:
We must think about the root causes of such a desperate act. If the US (Clinton) hadn’t interfered with the normal cultural practices of the Balkans by stopping the Serbs’ ethnic cleansing of Bosnia, this disturbed young man would never have ended up in Salt Lake City living on the public purse.
It didn’t take long, here it is:
Trolley Square: FBI says no evidence of terrorism in mall massacre

The FBI has no evidence that political terrorism played a role in Monday’s killing spree at Trolley Square.
Patrick Kiernan, a special agent with the FBI in Salt Lake City, said Wednesday that the bureau is trying to help police determine why Talovic killed five people. As part of that effort, agents have looked into whether religion or terrorism were factors.
“We’re working closely with the Salt Lake P.D. and we’re obviously aware that that [terrorism] is a potential issue out there,” Kiernan said. “But at this point there is nothing that is leading us down this road.”
The killer, 18-year-old Sulejman Talovic is a Bosnian immigrant, whose family came to the United States in the late 1990s as refugees from the Bosnian War.
Sulejman is a common ethnic Muslim name, originating in the Ottoman Empire, which once dominated what is now Bosnia-Herzegovina.
