I wonder if there is any truth to the rumour that the male shooter’s name was Walid al-Shakafee, or that he was born a shoemaker- ولادة لإسكافي His original work was to make slippers for the imams muezzins of the The Great Mosque of Raqqah (Arabic: الجامع الكبير في الرقة), but because الجامع also means omnibus in Arabic, he gave the chief muezzin’s slippers to a bus driver. When the bus was blown up the next day, the bus driver went to San Bernadino, where he operated a boot polishing machine at the Regional Centre; the chief Imam, نعود إلى النعال للمؤذن, or Naeud ‘iilaa al-Nieal Lilmudhin, which coincidentally means, “Get back the shoes of the muezzin” said to Walid al-Shakafee, “Get back the shoes of the muezzin”. So he went to San Bernardino to Get back the shoes of the muezzin. But the bus driver said, “No, I’m going to keep them.” So he changed his name to Syed Rizwan Farook because he didn’t want to upset the imam, Naeud ‘iilaa al-Nieal Lilmudhin, and used Tashfeen Malik to inveigle the fugitive bus driver to give back the shoes of the muezzin. But she was so ugly that he refused, and that made her feel quite radicalised; and Wally felt radicalised because he knew the imam would feel radicalised if he didn’t bring back the muezzin’s slippers; and Wally was also feeling anxious about hearing the muezzin singing if he felt radicalised about his slippers. So they had to shoot those people in the Regional Centre.
