ISIS Takes Responsibility For Attack on Texas Muhuammed Art Exhibit

ISIS has officially taken responsibility for the attack Sunday night on a Muhammed art exhibit in Garland, Texas. This is the first official ISIS attack to be be carried out on U.S. soil. Thankfully, there was a heavy police presence at the event and the suspects were shot immediately after they opened fire outside the building. More from Fox News

The Islamic State terror group (ISIS) Tuesday issued a claim of responsibility for Sunday's attack on a Texas cartoon contest featuring images of the Muslim prophet Muhammad.

The claim was made in an audio message on the group's Al Bayan radio station, based in the Syria city of Raqqa, which ISIS has proclaimed to be the capital of its self-proclaimed caliphate. It is the first time ISIS has taken credit for an attack on U.S. soil, though it was not immediately clear whether the group's claim was an opportunistic co-opting of a so-called "lone wolf" attack as its own.

The message described the shooting suspects as "two soldiers of the caliphate" and added "We tell America that what is coming is more bitter and harder and you will see from the soldiers of the Caliphate what harms you."

The message also said the contest, which was being put on by a group known for controversial rhetoric about Islam, "was portraying negative images of the Prophet Muhammad."

As I wrote yesterday, it's been alarming to watch the reaction to the attack from the media, who has been giving more scrutiny to the event organizers than the terrorists who wanted to kill attendees over cartoons. Free speech and the West are under attack.
