TERROR IN TEXAS: Gunmen Attack @PamelaGeller Event in Garland UPDATED: ISIS Takes Credit? ‘May Allah Accept Us as Mujahideen’

Posted on | May 3, 2015 | 77 Comments

Two gunmen opened fire at a “Draw Mohammed” art context in Texas, and the story is now being updated continually. Pamela Geller remains as courageously outspoken as ever:

This is a war. This is war on free speech. What are we going to do? Are we going to surrender to these monsters?
Two men with rifles and backpacks attacked police outside our event. A cop was shot; his injuries are not life-threatening, thank Gd. Please keep him in your prayers.
The bomb squad has been called to the event site to investigate a backpack left at the event site.
The war is here.

UPDATE: Brandon Darby reports at

GARLAND, Texas — Shots rang out this evening at the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland, Texas during the Mohammed Art Exhibit and Contest. A law enforcement officer was shot and both suspects have been killed. Officers on the scene said that it is possible that explosives are in the area.
Attendees were immediately forced into lockdown by police, including three Breitbart News reporters. Sources say event organizer Pamela Geller and keynote speaker Geert Wilders, a Dutch politician, are safe. Breitbart Texas was conducting a live video interview with Geller at the moment of the attack.

UPDATE II: This is shocking news:

Just before the time of the attacks, at 7:35 EST, well before news agencies had reported the attacks, an Islamic twitter account reported that an attack was about to take place.

UPDATE III: Headline at the Dallas Morning News:

Exhibit’ at Garland ISD facility, police say

    Oh, but it’s perfectly fine to submerge crucifixes in one’s urine sample and call it “art”. And even get thr government to pay for it.

    I heard that ISIS shot their mouths off on Twitter, thereby revealing the identities of the two. It wouldn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out their names.
    Strangely, I haven’t seen that from the MSM yet.

    Comparing and contrasting progressives’ reactions to those reactions, it seems that defunding the NEA would be worse than mass murder.

    The official reason was so that no one could get in, but a more general principle is that you can’t really declare a space clear if someone could get into it from a space that is not yet clear, so it’s very helpful to isolate the spaces. If the people inside could get out, the police wouldn’t be able to declare the outside of the building clear until after they cleared the inside.

    (I learned this from tactical computer games.)
