After every act of Muslim terrorism, the media begins applying its spin. Here's how it spun this Islamic terror attack...

2 stabbed at Mall of America thwarting theft - USA Today
This wasn't the first such Muslim terror attack in a mall. And the terrorist confirmed it in court.
On Thursday, 20-year-old Mahad Abdiaziz Adbiraham pleaded guilty to stabbing two men at the Mall of America.
The incident occurred on Nov. 12, where authorities say he stabbed two brothers in a dressing room at the mall's Macy's.
At the plea hearing Thursday, Abdiraham's attorney read a statement — which is public record — to the courtroom, which explained why he attacked the two men.
In the statement, Abdiraham said he went to the Mall of America to answer the "call for jihad by the Chief of Believer, Abu-bakr Al-baghdadi, may Allah protect him, and by the Mujahiden of the Islamic State."
The statement added, "I understand that the two men I stabbed know and have explained the reason for my attack, and I am here reaffirming that it was indeed an act of Jihad in the way of Allah."
Here's how the authorities tried to cover it up when it happened...
Two men were stabbed in the Macy’s store at the Mall of America on Sunday night in what Bloomington police described as “an interrupted theft.”
The victims were taken to Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis; their injuries were not life-threatening, Bloomington Police Chief Jeff Potts said at a news briefing.
Police arrested a suspect, who was held by other shoppers after the assault. The suspect had minor injuries, Potts said.
The incident started about 6:45 p.m. in a fitting room of the men’s department at Macy’s. Two men were trying on clothes and walked out of the fitting room to show others in their group. The suspect went into the fitting room and tried to steal some of the men’s belongings.
Just another interrupted theft by ISIS. And another compelling reason to rethink our immigration policies.
