ISIS Claims Responsibility For Texas Shooting That Leaves Two Dead, Police Officer Injured

Tyler Durden's picture

Yesterday, around 7 pm, dozens of people were at a contest hosted by New York-based American freedom Defense Initiative at the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland, Texas when police said two men pulled up in a vehicle and shot a Garland Independent School District Security guard in the ankle at about 7 p.m. The men were then shot and killed by Garland police.

The incident occurred as the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland hosted a
controversial art event put on by New York-based American freedom
Defense Initiative featuring cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad.

Police officers address attendees at the Muhammad Art Exhibit and Contest after they are prevented from leaving when it was reported that shots were fired and a man is down in Garland, Texas May 3, 2015.

A police officer prevents attendees from leaving the Muhammad Art Exhibit and Contest after shots were fired outside the venue in Garland, Texas May 3, 2015.

However, as the recent massacre at the Paris Charlie Hebdo offices showed, such drawings are deemed insulting to many followers of Islam and have sparked violence around the world. According to mainstream Islamic tradition, any physical depiction of the Prophet Muhammad is considered blasphemous.

According to NBCDFW, "Texas officials are actively investigating to determine the cause and scope of the senseless attack," Texas Governor Greg Abbott said in a statement. "This is a crime that was quickly ended thanks to the swift action by Garland law enforcement."

The security guard, 58-year-old Bruce Joiner, was treated released from a hospital nearly two hours later, police said.

"Our thoughts and prayers remain with all those affected tonight," Abbott said.

As NBC further reports, fears of an "incendiary device" inside the suspects' vehicle prompted an investigation by a bomb squad unit and the evacuation of nearby businesses. Police are currently using robotic detection equipment to search the vehicle. No device has been found as of this writing.

Dr. Bilal Rana, President of Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association released the following statement:

"On behalf of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association — the largest Muslim youth group in the country — we stand by our fellow Americans in shock and horror at today's shooting. While we wait for investigators to tell us more about the shooters, we wholly condemn any such acts of violence and find them completely unjustifiable. Our faith calls us to engage in dialogue. So we condemn any use of violence to intimidate anyone."

Pamela Geller, president of the American Freedom Defense Initiative, said that she planned the Sunday event to make a stand for free speech in response to the outcries and violence over drawings of Muhammad.

And while the FBI did not have any immediate comments or speculation on the reason behind the attac, according to the Site intel group, overnight it was Islamic State supporters who took "credit" for the bungled shooting attack.


If indeed ISIS has found its way to the US, whether for pure provocation, false flag or any other "purposes" of inciting terrorist acts, this will likely be just the first of (many) other attacks which will see the successor of al Qaeda take responsibility for.

And ISIS in America, stay tuned for a September Surprise? 

As always though, the location, the players and the feel of it give the feeling of another freaking psy op.

American Freedom Defense Initiative sponsors a Muhammed cartoon contest. ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME? Nobody is questioning the demand for, or wisdom of holding such a non-event? UN-FUCKING-BELIEVABLE. American 'intelligence' on display once again.

Right, you can have a cartoon contest that demeans any religion but DO NOT fucking mess with those Muslims. EVER! 

So did ya'll put on a clean burka this morning before bowing down to Mecca?


Socratic Dog's picture

Funny, I don't see too many cartoon contests making good, clean fun of the holocast.  But somehow this is fine, when we know how much it pisses off muslims?

And keep in mind, it was the zio's that done 9/11, not the muslims.

I'd suggest that if you're dumb enough to buy into the official 9/11 narrative, and vindictive enough to enter a cartoon contest of this nature, then your violent death would be little loss to humankind.  Whether by false flag or otherwise.  And you shouldn't be too surprised.

Why was there a swat team handy?  Another training exercise?

Police in Garland, Texas, said they had planned security for months around the controversial exhibit and contest, and that a bomb squad, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, a SWAT team and the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives were all in place on Sunday night in case of any incidents.


Citing a senior Federal Bureau of Investigation official, ABC News identified one of the gunmen as Elton Simpson, an Arizona man who was the target of a terror investigation. FBI agents and a bomb squad were searching Simpson's Phoenix home, ABC said.


Phoenix's KPHO TV reported an unidentified second man lived in the same complex as Simpson, the Autumn Ridge Apartments. It was not immediately clear whether the two men lived in the same apartment.

The two-story apartment building was cordoned off, and residents were evacuated early on Monday, a neighbor told Reuters. Police and FBI vehicles were parked outside but officials declined to comment.

And there ya go...... Elton Simpson - I kid you not.

Rita Katz is running the ISIS op. Its a grand PsyOp!

CIA -> Mujahidine -> Al Qaeda -> ISIS & Boko Haram (follow the names back to get to the answer)


Early life

Katz, a fluent Arabic speaker, was born in Basra in Southern Iraq in 1963 to a well-to-do Iraqi Jewish family.[1][4] After the Six Day War and shortly after Saddam Hussein's Ba'ath Party seized power in Iraq in 1968, her father was arrested on charges of spying for Israel.[4] The family's property was confiscated by the state, and the rest of the family put under house arrest in a stone hut.[1][4] The following year, after having been tortured, Katz's father was convicted and executed in a public hanging in the central square of Baghdad to the roaring applause of more than half a million Iraqis; the government offered free transportation to people from the provinces, and belly dancers performed for the crowd.[1][4][5] Katz's mother managed to escape on foot with her three small children to Iran, and from there they made their way to Israel.[4]

The family settled in the seaside town of Bat Yam.[4] While in Israel, Katz served in the Israeli Defense Forces and studied politics, history, and Middle Eastern studies at Tel Aviv University.[4] As a committed Zionist, Katz was reluctant to ever leave Israel saying, “I believed that Jews belong in Israel”.[6] Nevertheless in 1997 Katz’s husband was offered a research fellowship in endocrinology at the National Institutes of Health and they moved to Washington with their three children.[7] Katz has acknowledged that at this time she worked in violation of the provisions of her visa. This was disclosed whilst she was acting as a witness against a defendant accused amongst other things of visa fraud.[8]


In approximately 1997 she began working for a Middle Eastern research institute.[1] As a result of her research, she realized that the Holy Land Foundation was a front group for Hamas.[1] Wanting to examine it more closely, she attended a fundraiser of theirs dressed as a Muslim woman.[1] Soon thereafter, again disguised as a Muslim woman, wearing a burqa and wearing recording equipment, she began attending Islamic conferences and fundraisers, visiting mosques, and participating in pro-Palestinian rallies in the U.S. as an undercover investigator in order to expose links of American Islamic groups to foreign terrorist groups.[1][9]

I wonder how many tax payer dollars were spent to protect this stupid project! If they knew that this would cause an outcry, and any simpleton

would know the answer to that one, why did they let Pam Geller do this ridiculous project. Everyone knows that you can say anything against any religion except the Judaic. Then

it is a crime. What total horseshit.

and does anyone find it odd that the "police" were already there, in full desert camo and military style weapons and communication gear ??????

Did anyone else notice that it happened while the cocksuckers up in Yankton are voting on whether, or not, to tone down the Patriot Act?

There is a bright side to martial law. Under it, the military is in charge and therefore they could waltz into the White House, arrest the grifters, and deposit them in the big house.

New England Patriot's picture

I believe that's called a coup d'etat. 

Herd Redirection Committee's picture

I truly believe in this case it would be a counter-coup.

The coup happened, first, back in 1913.

And then again in 1963. 

And then most recently, and I think we all remember, 9/11/2001.

right and chances of that happening are ZERO

why would MIC bite the hand that feeds them?

What a series of shit-for-brains comments. You dumbasses are the psychos - everything is"psyh-ops" or "CIA" or (fill-in the blank) false flag.

It's VERY well documented that IS is bringing in jihadist lunatics through Obama's personally created porous southern border.

So go ahead with your rants - personally I believe many of you are "false flag" posters tasked with using the Alinsky technique of ridicule to obliterate the reality that there is an IS in America, and it is part and parcel, along with calls by the Black Racist Pig Al Sharpton for a nationalized police force, to justify martial law.

Yes, many of you "false flag" screamers are yourselves "false flags."

I don't buy border infiltration either.  If either the CIA or ISIS (regardless of whether they or their members do or have worked together) was going to train and infiltrate a team to strike a fucking "art exhibition" in Texas - both groups would send clowns who could at least execute a Chinese Fire Drill under fire.

Multiple shooters... and the most damage they could inflict was 1 minor injury.  It's time to rethink all surrender money jokes about the French, or at least limit them to public sector workers, because French "terrorists" kick ass in comparison to these clowns.

This reeks of full blown 'Murican retard towelhead.  Even Maj Hasan (who was a paper pusher, not a soldier, employed by the US DoD managed a better showing).

and yet we quite possibly have the most screwed up immigration policy on the planet.

It's time to send a lot of people packing. Deposit on the border they crossed over from and ensure (using deadly force if necessary) they do not return.

okay dipshit.  More people are kiled on the streets that the boomer garbage flips property to mug people in need of shelter.

More people who are unjustly murdered in the US that go unreported is way more than what "ISIS" did to the two men in Texas.

Waaaah!  Political op killed two people and we absolutely "MUST" scare people at all times when the garbage boomers rob people for "gentrification" in South Central LA -basically forcing innocent people into homeless or eminent domain without comp?  You wouldn't know this or your own mom from a pig.

No, far more likely is that he is a cock-sucking, whore/coke snorting, ass-faced cunt from a Kaliphornica jail where he was 'housewife' to a bout a dozen M13 bangers and loved every hemeroidal moment of it like you.

Even Yankee Marines could hit the broad side of a fucking barn with an AK-47, dumbass
