Frankfurt Attack: "There is suspicion that the killing may have been motivated by Islamism," May have? Give me a break! "Allahu Akbar" removes all doubt!

The media is certainly part of the problem... What problem?  The Islamist problem!  Wake the hell up! First I find this statement (link is the source), "German authorities right now don't see that a terrorist network was involved." then "...the investigation indicated that the suspect acted alone and did not belong to a terrorist cell or larger network " and other media outlets were just as cautious not to place the blame on Islamists.  Let me tell you something, any terrorist that shouts out, "Allahu Akbar" (God is Greatest) during their shooting episode belongs to the largest network of terrorists ever to exist, Islam!  "Allahu Akbar!"  Its their M.O.  (Modus Operandi).  ~  Storm'n Norm'n

Frankfurt attack may be linked to radical Islamism
(Reuters) - The gunman who shot dead two U.S. airmen in a U.S. Army bus at Frankfurt airport on Wednesday was probably a lone operator motivated by radical Islamist beliefs, German authorities said on Thursday.
German media had reported the man could be part of a terrorist cell, raising the potential threat of further attacks on U.S. targets in Germany.
"He is a lone perpetrator according to our investigations so far," said Hesse Interior Minister Boris Rhein, adding there were no signs he belonged to a terrorist group. "There are reasons to believe that he is a radical Muslim."
Police arrested the man, who seriously wounded two further airmen, after the attack. Rhein said initial investigations had shown him to be willing to confess.
The gunman, identified as Arid Uka, is a 21-year old Kosovo national who was working on a short-term contract at the Frankfurt international postal centre, authorities said.
Germany's new federal interior minister Hans-Peter Friedrich said the investigation was being carried out "at high speed" but there was no reason to increase security now.
"There is suspicion that the killing may have been motivated by Islamism," state prosecutors said, although not elaborating on the nature of the Islamism.
Media said the man, who visited Islamist websites and donned the fighter name "Abu Reyyan", shouted "Allahu Akbar" (God is Greatest) during the shooting.
U.S. President Barack Obama said on Wednesday he was outraged by the attack and the Kosovo government condemned the shooting. The Kosovo parliament held a minute of silence.
The United States has had troops in Kosovo since 1999, when a NATO bombing campaign pushed out Serbian forces. The U.S. troops there now are helping to oversee a fragile peace that has held since Kosovo declared independence from Serbia in 2008.
On Wednesday evening, people lit candles in Kosovo's capital Pristina and in the town of Mitrovica where the assailant is thought to be from. Kosovo newspapers said the attack had damaged the country's reputation.
The father of the gunman told Reuters on Thursday that he was shocked by the attack, and apologised to the victims' families and the American people.
The U.S. embassy in Pristina however said "the act of a single individual will in no way affect the deep and abiding friendship between our two countries".
The U.S. Army bus had been transporting a team based in Britain from the airport to the Ramstein base, the U.S. airforce said. The team had been on its way to Afghanistan.
