A shooting in Germany that claimed the lives of two American airmen and seriously wounded two others is now being looked at as a possible terrorist attack.
German officials arrested Arid Uka from Kosovo, a man they believe is responsible for shooting off nine rounds at the airmen.
Here’s ABC with the details.
“According to law enforcement officials the gunman walked up to the bus, pulled out a semi automatic weapon, and began firing, over and over, and constantly shouting, ‘Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar,’ Arabic for ‘God is Great’.”
European officials are calling it Islamic extremism, but the U.S. thinks it’s too soon to tell. A blogger for Wizbang argues- Uka’s shouts don’t necessarily mean he’s a terrorist.
“I think before we jump to any conclusions here, it's important to note that ‘Allah Akbar’ can sound a lot like ‘Our Father’ in the heat of the moment... [A]nyone assuming that this is a Jihadist attack is obviously bigoted and Islamophobic ... intolerant and close-minded.”
President Obama made an impromptu address shortly after the attack - but a blogger from the American Thinker says- the president’s stance was weak.
“The President … switches the focus away from the murderer toward the sacrifices of the victims… ‘A tragic event’? ‘A stark reminder’ of ‘sacrifices’ to ‘keep us safe’ from ‘dangers’? No, Mr. President, it's a stark reminder that the world is full of Muslim males in their twenties who believe that their God has commanded them to murder Americans.”
As the media continue to sort through the facts of the attack, the blog Und Himmi -- with a self-described British perspective - says Western news outlets need to stop trying to downplay quote “Islamic atrocities.”
“It almost seems as though they are secretly more worried about upsetting wider Muslim communities, than attending to the sensitivities of the victims and the ordinary public.”
Finally - a military analyst tells Fox News - regardless of how the this one event is being covered in the media - it’s important keep an eye on the big picture.
“We’re facing global chaos at this point and I think this is just another indicator of where we need to be paying attention to some areas of which we’ve neglected in the past”
German authorities believe the attacker acted alone so they have not boosted security measures across the country.
