Andrew G. Bostom, professor of medicine at Brown University, told Steve Malzberg that Ismaaiyl may have been responding to a fatwa to murder police officers.
“People are reluctant to even acknowledge that the man is a professed Muslim and comes from a Muslim background… There were four high profile attacks by Western Muslims against Western societies, specifically targeting police, since the September 22nd fatwa by an important ISIS ideologue was posted online. And in that fatwa it calls for attacks on westerners but it specifically targeted police.”
