Don’t forget: the Islamic State attacked America earlier this year in Texas, but the assailants were gunned down before they could go on a killing spree…

According to Wikipedia:

“The Curtis Culwell Center attack was carried out by two men who attacked officers with gunfire at the entrance to an exhibit featuring cartoon images of Muhammad at the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland, Texas on May 3, 2015. The attackers shot a Garland Independent School District (ISD) security officer in the ankle. Shortly after the attackers pulled up and opened fire, both were shot and killed by a police officer.[

On Twitter, minutes prior to the attack, one of the gunmen posted “May Allah accept us as mujahideen” with the hashtag ‪#‎texasattack‬. He wrote that both attackers had pledged allegiance to “Amirul Mu’mineen”, a likely reference to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. The statements also requested others to follow an ISIS propagandist, Junaid Hussain, on Twitter. After the shooting, Hussain wrote: “Allahu Akbar!!!! 2 of our brothers just opened fire.”

The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL or ISIS) claimed responsibility for the attack, the first time the militant group took credit for an attack in the United States. Law enforcement officials have neither confirmed nor denied ISIS involvement.”
