Third Muslim Arrested in Jihad Attack on AFDI Garland Free Speech Event

“The indictment indicates that Kareem took the shooters — Elton Simpson and Nadir Soofi — to practice shooting and gave them assault rifles.” If they had chosen a soft target rather than our well-protected event, they could have committed mass murder of horrific proportions. And make no mistake: Ibrahim (not Elton) Simpson and Nadir Soofi were going to go jihad — they were in touch with ISIS jihadis and looking for targets. The idea that they were “provoked” by our event and would otherwise have been “moderate” is ridiculous.

The indictment indicates that Kareem took the shooters — Elton Simpson and Nadir Soofi — to practice shooting and gave them assault rifles.

Simpson and Soofi opened fire on an unarmed security officer stationed outside the contest at the Curtis Culwell Center May 3, according to authorities. The security guard was wounded in the leg before the gunmen were killed at the scene.

According to the indictment, Kareem told FBI agents two days later that he did not know Simpson and Soofi and denied knowing about the planned shooting.

The indictment does not spell out where the guns came from or where Kareem was during the attacks. It also says nothing about any potential ties to terrorism or ISIS.
