NY Deputy Police Commissioner: "This isn't about Islam, this isn't about the mosque he attends"

by ROBERT SPENCER November 2, 2017

Sayfullo Saipov screamed "Allahu akbar" as he murdered people. Why did he do that? Does John Miller understand what the significance of that cry in the context of a jihad attack is? How can he be so sure that this is not about Islam, when Saipov himself associated his act with Islam?

And how does Miller know that this isn't about the mosque he attends? How does he know the mosque didn't exhort Saipov to commit an act of violent jihad for Allah? Is that a possibility that is just too politically damaging for the de Blasio administration to contemplate?

Miller warns against "Islamophobic" hate crimes. Very well. When has he ever warned people in the same stern tones not to commit jihad mass murder? Or would such a warning be "Islamophobic"?
