According to a source with the Associated Press referenced below, Tashfeen Malik, the female shooter of the San Bernardino, CA shooting recently became a devoted [“more zealous”] follower of Islam.
Here is the problem with Islam:
When a Christian grows within their faith, they become increasingly humble, generous and forgiving … just to name a few qualities.
When a follower of Muhammad grows within their faith, they become more judgmental [in their view of “non-believers”, “infidels” or “pagans”] and outwardly hostile [removing the veil of Taqiya] as displayed in the multiple “radicalized” or “self-radicalized” terror attack seen over the past few years.
Here are just three examples of “radicalized” Muslims in acts of violence against U.S. citizens on American soil:
- Fort Hood Shooting, 2009 – Nidal Hasan
- Texas man attempts to convert co-workers to Islam, beheads co-worker in office, 2014
- Chattanooga Recruit Center Shooting, 2015
Are these people radicalized, or have they just come to the realization within their “faith” that they now can enact the “Will of Allah”? To lift the veil so to speak…

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) — The latest on the mass shooting in San Bernardino, California (all times local):
In Pakistan, a relative of female shooter Tashfeen Malik says the woman apparently became a more zealous follower of the Muslim faith about three years ago.
Hifza Batool tells The Associated Press on Saturday other relatives have said that Malik, who was her step-niece, used to wear Western clothes but began wearing the hijab head covering or the all-covering burqa donned by the most conservative Muslim women about three years ago.
“I recently heard it from relatives that she has become a religious person and she often tells people to live according to the teachings of Islam,” said Batool, 35, a private school teacher who lives in Karor Lal Esam, about 450 kilometers (280 miles) southwest of the Pakistani capital of Islamabad.
Batool said she had never met Malik, who mostly grew up in Saudi Arabia with her family. Batool said the two families were not on speaking terms.
“Tashfreen Malik’s parents are rich and we are poor and they don’t like to meet with their poor relatives,” she said.

The Islamic State group’s official radio station has aired a statement saying the mass shooting in California was carried out by two “supporters” of the extremist group.
