What can be expected but a cover-up of terrorism in Dhimmi America?

Idris Abdus-Salaam’s mother contends he was not capable of the unexplained violence that left three women dead at an East Knox County truck stop.

Within hours of the attack Tuesday morning at the Pilot Travel Center on Strawberry Plains Pike, Tennessee authorities identified Abdus-Salaam, a 33-year-old truck driver from Durham, North Carolina, as the man responsible for the stabbing spree that killed three Pilot employees and wounded a customer.

Walidah Abdus-Salaam, however, maintains that such a heinous act is completely out of character for her son.

“He’s not a violent person,” she told Knox News. “The picture they painted is ugly. That is not my son.

“I don’t believe it, and I refuse to believe it until they can prove otherwise to me.”

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has yet to offer a possible motive for the attack.

At the scene on Tuesday morning, responding Knox County Sheriff’s Office deputies spotted Abdus-Salaam in parking lot, armed with a knife, after witnesses identified him as the attacker.

He was shot by one of the deputies after he refused to drop the weapon, according the TBI, which is leading the investigation into both the stabbings and the shooting.

Abdus-Salaam was pronounced dead at the scene, along with three of the victims. A fourth woman wounded in the attack has been released from a local hospital….

In April 2018, Abdus-Salaam was arrested on a felony charge of evading arrest in Raleigh, according to court records. The outcome of the case was not immediately available.

Abdus-Salaam was a U.S.-born citizen, a longtime Durham resident and a practicing Muslim, his mother said. He was not married and had no children.

Although he traveled frequently for his work, he stayed in close contact with his family and had spoken to his sister a couple of days before the attack.

His loved ones had no reason to believe he had become radicalized by any sort of religious fanaticism, his mother said.

The family had no indication Abdus-Salaam was suffering from mental illness, either.

“Unless it developed recently and I’m not aware of it,” Walidah Abdus-Salaam said.

Citing an unidentified “source close to the investigation,” WBIR-Channel 10 reported that authorities recovered a notebook from Abdus-Salaam’s truck with writings suggesting he may have been mentally unstable….
