Peter King: NYC Ax Attacker Was Radical Muslim with Terrorist Islamic Leanings

Thursday on Fox News Channel’s “The Kelly File,” Rep Peter King (R-NY) said the man accused of attacking New York City police officers with an ax, putting one officer in critical condition with a head wound and the other in stable condition with an arm injury, is a radical Muslim with “terrorist Islamic leanings.”

King said, “A number of people I’ve spoken to clearly there were radical Islamic statements that he’s made. I can’t tell you exactly where I’ve gotten all of this but there’s documentation showing he’s very much anti-white. certainly he is a Muslim. I’ve heard that, maybe black Muslim. Whether or not it was ISIS, I don’t know. But clearly this is a person who has at least some terrorist Islamic leanings. Certainly radical Islamic leanings. Hear with what’s happened over the last several days, whether or not he actuality is with ISIS, which probably is not the case, don’t want to prejudge that. If he does have mental issues, that’s when something like this, when you see what ISIS is doing, people like this they can be provoked. They can act.”
