Can you imagine Muslim charities accommodating Christians – apart from in shallow graves.

Dave Woodyard, Catholic Charities CEO, said: “We gave them aid and comfort and some shelter as part of the government resettlement program.”

Kindness is repaid with murder.

Abdul Razak Ali Artan

Abdul Razak Ali Artan injured 11 people during his rampage at Ohio State

Devout Muslim Abdul Razak Ali Artan was shot dead by police after he ploughed a car into 11 people at the university’s Columbus campus on Monday before jumping out of his vehicle and stabbing people with a butcher’s knife.

Many of the injured are still in hospital three days later.

Investigators now believe the 18-year-old Ohio State University student may have been “self-radicalised” despite Islamic State (ISIS) claiming he was a “soldier” of the terror group, with jihadis calling for Allah to make him a “martyr in heaven”.

A Christian charity in Dallas, Texas, has now revealed they gave him and his family aid and shelter when they arrived in the United States from Pakistan in June 2014 before he became a lawful permanent US resident.

Artan, his mother and six siblings were most likely picked up by the charity at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport after coming through New York’s JFK Airport.

Dave Woodyard, Catholic Charities CEO, said: “We gave them aid and comfort and some shelter as part of the government resettlement program.”

According to their records, the family was placed in a temporary house in Dallas for 23 days before leaving on June 28, 2014, for Columbus, Ohio.

Mr Woodyard, added: “Then they emigrated. Left, and moved onto Columbus, Ohio.

“And that’s when we closed our file.”

The file has now been passed on to investigators, Mr Woodyard said.

He added refugees are vetted by the US Department of States before arriving in the country and said organisations such as Catholic Charities help refugees settle in and start their new lives.

The charity head, added: “Most of them are successful.”
