Generally, it’s not hard to figure out the motive of an attacker that screams “Allahu Akhbar” before attempting to massacre civilians in cold blood; the obvious purpose of such an attack is terrorism, with the almost certain motive being Islamism.
But the New York Times can’t accept that, likely because it goes against the regime media narrative that “angry, white men” are the real terrorists and threats to the peace.
Hence why, in an article about a terror attack in France in which a bloodthirsty terrorist yelled “Allahu Akhbar” before going on to slaughter French civilians, the New York Times reported that the attacker’s motives were “unclear.”
That insanity was called out by the Daily Caller, which had this to say in a recent article:
A public prosecutor in France claimed this week that the suspect in the shooting at Strasbourg Christmas market was an Islamic extremist who shouted “Allahu Akbar” shortly before the attack. Two people died and nine were injured in the incident.
France declared the shooting an act of terror, according to The New York Times’ reporting, yet the paper insisted on Twitter that officials were unsure about the gunman’s motive.
“It remains unclear what motivated the gunman who opened fire at a Christmas market in Strasbourg, officials said, as the police continue an intensive search for the attacker,” the NYT tweeted.
Here’s the NYT’s outrageous tweet:

So, an Islamist gunman shouted “Allahu Akhbar” before shooting eleven French civilians, and the NYT can’t figure out his motives.
Yeah, right. I’m sure they’d be equally hesitant to report on a motive had the gunman been a white male shouting “white power” while massacring black people…
Oh, and the NYT made that ridiculous tweet despite the shared article itself noting that:
“The deadly shooting at a crowded Strasbourg street market was an act of terrorism, officials said Wednesday, as hundreds of police officers hunted the fugitive assailant, a man described as a radicalized hometown career criminal.”
But still, the NYT says the motives of the man who it describes as “radicalized” and who perpetrated an “act of terrorism” were unclear.
