Faisal Mohammed: Smiling Muslim Student Who Stabbed 4 People At U Of California In Jihad Attack Shot Dead By Police

November 5, 2015

MIM: According to reports in Jihad Watch Mohammed had an ISIS flag and Sheriff Warnke is deliberately trying to whitewash the fact that the attack was an act of jihad.

UC Merced Knife Attack: Islamic Jihad Comes To The Golden State

November 5, 2015 - San Francisco, CA – – Though it took a full 24 hours for the details to finally slither out, we now know that on Wednesday morning, 18 year old U.C. Merced freshman Faisal Mohammed stabbed 4 people in an unprovoked attack.

The injured – two students, a contractor working on campus and an employee of the university – are expected to fully recover.

Mohammed who used an "8 – 10 inch" hunting style knife in the attack, was shot and killed by local law enforcement, thus proving that the only way to stop a bad guy with a knife is a good guy with a gun.

"One stabbing victim…Byron Price, is being called a hero after he ran to the classroom where the initial stabbing happened when he heard commotion. Price was able to distract Mohommad, allowing other students and staff to get away. ‘He had a smile on his face," Price said. "He was having fun, which is more what bothers me…'" [source, Sara Heise, Officials: Stabbing Suspect Was Freshman At UC Merced , KCRA Merced]

Though the media is taking the normal multi-culti dodge claiming ignorance regarding the reason behind Mohammed's multiple acts of attempted murder – "A motive for the stabbings has not yet been released" – it seems pretty clear that there just might be some connection between Mohammed's rampage and what is happening in Israel as identical jihadist attacks by young Arabs are taking place along the country's major ethnic fault lines.

University of California stabber identified: Faisal Mohammad

Student who stabbed four victims before being shot dead named as 18-year-old Muslim; FBI still trying to determine motive.

The University of California Merced student who stabbed four people on Wednesday was identified on Thursday as Faisal Mohammad, a Muslim freshman from Santa Clara.

The 18-year-old Computer Science and Engineering major was identified as the attacker by Merced County Sheriff Vern Warnke to the local paper Merced Sun-Star.

The sheriff said investigators, including from the FBI and US Department of Homeland Security, are still trying to determine the motive of the Muslim student's stabbing attack. Little is known about Mohammad other than that his 18th birthday came in late October.

University of California campuses have become home to radical pro-Islamic and anti-Israel sentiment, as evidenced in a vote to boycott Israel in February at UC Davis, during which anti-Israel activists shouted "Allahu akbar" (Allah is greater) at Jewish students and after which a student senator wrote "Hamas has taken over UC Davis."

In the attack Wednesday, Mohammad wounded two students, a female student adviser and a construction worker who was taking part in a remodeling project on campus; the wounds of all four were defined as non-life-threatening.

One student remained hospitalized Thursday morning but is expected to recover, and the other wounded student has already been released. The student adviser suffered a collapsed lung from her wounds, but is recovering after a successful surgery according to a university spokesperson. The construction worker was treated at a hospital and later released.

In the attack, Mohammad entered a second-floor classroom as a class began while armed with a large hunting knife. He stabbed a male student, before 31-year-old construction worker Byron Price, who was in a nearby room, went to intervene and got cut around the waist. Co-workers drove him to hospital for treatment.

Sheriff Warnke praised Price's actions, saying, "without him, the first victim could have been a lot worse off, or even dead."

Mohammad then apparently left the building where he stabbed another male student outside, and then attacked the female student adviser as she sat on a bench, stabbing her twice.

At that point two university police officers arrived, chasing the Muslim attacker to a bridge on campus where he was shot dead.

One officer was give an automatic three-day leave from the department, which the local paper said is standard protocol in "officer-involved shootings."

Classes were canceled for the rest of the day and remained canceled on Thursday, although they are to resume Friday.

Mohammad had been carrying two plastic baggies of highly flammable petroleum jelly, ziptie handcuffs, night vision goggles, duct tape and a hammer in his backpack when he was shot in the back by officers.

He had planned to hold students hostage by using the plastic ties to bind their hands to their desks during class on Wednesday morning.

Then, he planned to call police with a fake distress call, ambush the responding officers and take their guns.

He intended to squirt the petroleum jelly on the floor to create a slippery surface for anyone entering the classroom

Sheriff Warnke said the document written by Mohammad discussed his expulsion from the study group and listed the students he sought to harm as well as other violent musings.

Warnke added that although Mohammad made several references to ‘Allah', he does not believe the attack was connected to religion or terrorism.

Stabbing suspect 'carried ISIS flag printout' before he was shot dead after his attack on four people at University of California

Revealed: California stabber was an ISIS fan

California student who stabbed four people was carrying an image of the ISIS flag and manifesto with instructions to behead a student.

Ben Ariel

Faisal Mohammad, the California college student who last week stabbed four people, was carrying an image of the black flag of Islamic State (ISIS) as well as a handwritten manifesto with instructions to behead a student and multiple reminders to pray to Allah, Fox News revealed on Wednesday.

However, according to the report, authorities continue to insist Mohammad's motives had nothing to do with radical Islam.

The 18-year-old, who was killed by a campus police officer to end the attack last Wednesday morning, was a loner who was incensed at being booted from a study group, according to Merced County Sheriff Vern Warnke. But the extreme way Mohammad dealt with his rage, the presence of the printout of ISIS's black flag and the deadly plans spelled out in the two-page document he carried could indicate there was more to the attack than simple rejection.

"This fits exactly with what ISIS is looking for, individuals to go and do an act of terrorism unilaterally," Patrick Dunleavy, former deputy inspector general of the New York State Police Criminal Intelligence Unit, told Fox News.

"The fact that he may have been kicked out of a study group does not preclude this being a lone wolf act. It only needs some sort of trigger, which could be totally unrelated to Islam, that causes him to act on his rage and attribute it to Allah," he added.

Dunleavy likened the case to the case of Alton Nolen, who allegedly beheaded a former co-worker at a food plant in Oklahoma City in 2014. While he was angry over a workplace issue, his actions were likely the result of radicalization, said Dunleavy.

"ISIS is not looking for a few good men; one crazy will do," he told Fox News. "This is what a lone wolf looks like."

The printout of the ISIS flag was reported Tuesday by the Merced Sun-Star, citing a law enforcement official who spoke on condition of anonymity a day earlier. The official also told the local newspaper Mohammad's manner of dress during the attack and some of the websites he may have visited in the days leading up to the incident ultimately led local authorities to hand control of the investigation over to the FBI.

Warnke confirmed that decision, saying "new information" had been discovered on Saturday about Mohammad, who was shot and killed by police during the episode.

While the unnamed law enforcement official who spoke with the Sun-Star didn't directly say the flag was related to the attack, ISIS is known to be recruiting U.S. citizens directly and attempting to inspire lone wolf attacks within the country. The group's social media savvy is well documented.

In fact, American authorities over the past year or so have arrested and charged several people of supporting ISIS.

These included a 16-year-old accused of planning to join the group and who was found guilty of illegal possession of a firearm in South Carolina, having been charged with this offense as South Carolina has no anti-terrorism laws.

His conviction followed the arrest of six Somali Americans from Minnesota who allegedly planned to travel to Syria to join ISIS. reported Friday that the manifesto found on Mohammad included numerous reminders to pray to Allah and a pledge to behead one victim. A backpack carried by Mohammad, who was shot and killed by campus police on a nearby bridge, contained zip-tie handcuffs and duct tape. Authorities later found two pages of handwritten notes on him, detailing his plans in oddly numbered order, according to investigators.
