How with they spin it this time?

Just shy of one month ago Jah'keem Yisreal (aka Alton Nolan) beheaded one former co-worker and stabbed another in Oklahoma.  Mr. Yisreal is a Muslim convert and the immediate response was that his actions had nothing to do with Islam even though he had posted photos on his Facebook page referencing beheading and his desire for America to burn.  MSNBC Host Melissa Harris-Perry said his actions were "workplace violence" and even agreed with one of her guest who joked (or I hope it was intend to be somehow funny) that what Muslims needed was a change in the cultural paradigm and that the new narrative should be that Muslims are actually funny people. 

Then there is Zale Thompson.  Mr. Thompson is a 32-year-old Muslim, who lived in Queens (NY), struck one of the officers in the back of the head with his hatchet and gashed another on the arm, the police said.  Officer Kenneth Healey is a 25-year-old rookie in the NYPD, he was injured critically in the attack. The other officer injured was Joseph Meeker. According to Newsday, both are natives of Long Island. CBS New York reports that Healey’s father is also an NYPD officer.

The Daily News reports that a homeless woman was also hit by a stray bullet during the incident. She’s in critical condition. Mr. Thompson was shot dead by the police at the scene. 

Mr. Thompson is alleged to have connections to IS (aka ISIL, aka ISIS) and like Mr. Yisreal last month, Mr. Thompson's Facebook had a profile picture of what could be seen as a Muslim terrorist.

Mr. Thompson was caught on videotape as he approached the officers with an axe: 

Like Mr. Yisreal, Mr. Thompson also adopted a Muslim name, Zaim Farouq Abdul-malik.  He had been discharged from the US Navy for misconduct.  Mr. Abdul-Malik (aka Thompson) was also, like Mr. Yisreal before him, willing to make public comments supporting Jihad on the internet.  On one youtube video he commented
If you’re looking for “perfect” muslims who never make any mistakes in
their Jihad, then you will be looking in vain! If the Zionists and the
Crusaders had never invaded and colonized the Islamic lands after WW1, then
there would be no need for Jihad! Which is better, to sit around and do
nothing, or to Jihad fisabeelallah!
But, I am sure that his faith in Islam had nothing to do with his axe wielding attack on two rookie New York Police Officers, right?  
Is there a message in the fact that we have seen Mr. Yisreal, Mr. Abdul-Malik and the two Muslim attacks in Canada within the past month?  Isn't this what the Department of Homeland Security warned America that IS (aka ISIL, aka ISIS) were calling upon fellow Jihadist to engage in? 
The truth is "we", you and I, Mom and Pop in Westernized Countries may not be at "war" with Islam but it seems clear that Islam is at war with "us".  The question is, just how will we react and will the media tell us the actions of Mr. Abdul-Malik had nothing to do with Islam.
