The student at University of California, Merced who last year stabbed four classmates now appears to have been inspired by ISIS. On November 4th, 18-year-old Faisal Mohammad stabbed a fellow student in a UC Merced classroom and then attacked three others as he fled on campus before police shot and killed him. Yesterday, the FBI announced that evidence, including his laptop containing “pro-Isil propaganda.” using an alternative acronym for ISIS and extremest websites he had visited “in the weeks prior to his attack,” pointed to ISIS-inspired motives. At the time of the stabbings, Mohammad was carrying a backpack with a two-page, handwritten plan “detailing his intentions to include taking hostages and killing students and police officers”, the FBI said in a statement. “After an extensive investigation of all available evidence, no ties to co-conspirators or foreign terrorist organizations have been found. Every indication is that Mohammad acted on his own; however, it may never be possible to definitively determine why he chose to attack people on the UC Merced campus.” All of the victims survived the attack.
