ISIS Teen Who Plotted Mall Shooting: ‘I Want America In The State Europe Is In‘, By RYAN SAAVEDRA, May 3, 2018, Dailywire.com
Law enforcement officials on Tuesday arrested a 17-year-old high school student who allegedly plotted a mass shooting terror attack at a mall in Frisco, Texas.
The teen, who authorities say pledged allegiance to ISIS, planned to carry out the attack sometime in May and is believed to have spent approximately $1,400 on “weapons and tactical gear for his attack,” CBS Dallas reported.
Authorities obtained the alleged Islamic terrorist’s manifesto and claim that he also tried to recruit others to help him carry out the attack, which was going to be a mass shooting and would also utilize explosive devices.
“I want to put America in the state that Europe is in, which is having to have soldiers deployed in streets,” the alleged Islamic terrorist said, according to an affidavit.
The suspect told authorities that he had to wait until he was 18 years old before he could buy the guns he needed to commit the attack, and also mentioned that he had other targets he wanted to hit, including a Hindu temple.
“There is a Hindu temple I want to shoot up,” the teen said, as he reportedly asked for help. “Get some crappy car and ditch it somewhere. Police response time here is really slow.”

The authroities, especially in more liberal leaning scoieties such as found in Europe and Canada, tend to dismiss such attacks as due to mental ilness and not radical Islam. However a French Psychiatrist questions this finding.
Psychiatrist Denies Link Between Mental Illness and Radical Islamic Terrorism, by CHRIS TOMLINSON, 3 May 2018, Breitbart
Tomlinson writes: French psychiatrist Pierre-François Godet has denied a causal link between radical Islamic terrorism and mental illness saying that he could find no objective studies that proved any direct links between the two.
Godet, who serves as head of the psychiatry unit at Saint-Cyr-au-Mont-d’Or hospital centre and is a member of the national office of the Union of Hospital Psychiatrists (SPH), said:
“There is no scientific study showing an objective link between jihadist radicalism and this or that personality structure.”
Mental illness has been cited as a cause or motivation in the aftermath of a number of terrorist attacks including when a 26-year-old Palestinian migrant stabbed several people in Hamburg last year.
The prognosis of mental illness was made despite the migrant previously boasting about wanting to become a terrorist and being on a terror watch list.
According to this Doctors views, we can then find fault in the opinions of the authorities that claim mental illness and not radical Islam is to blame for the horrific attacks:
“My clinical point of view on these few portraits of jihadists that the press has given is, therefore, the following: I do not see mentally ill people among them, and identifiable personality traits are not part of psychiatric care,” he (Godet) said.
