Former Roommate: Garland Texas Jihadis “Regularly Went Target Shooting After Observing Friday Prayers at Mosque,” Wanted “to BLOW UP NONBELIEVERS”

Further proof — absolute proof — that the devout Muslims who attacked our free speech event in Garland, Texas had intended to kill American non-Muslims long before we even announced our event. If not for our event, Americans would have been slaughtered in the cause of Islam.
