UPDATE: Twitchy has indications that the alleged attacker was charged with violent crimes on multiple occasions, but the charges were dismissed both times, and the LA Times describes him as a "pastor with a military background". His name appears American, and he is black rather than middle-eastern. However, his "military background" was denied by the Navy who said there was no record of anyone with his name serving in that branch, and the description of him as a "pastor" comes from a Muslim:
"Pastor" would normally imply a Christian religion, but that part is not in quotes, and he's being defended by a Muslim. The odds the attacker in this case was actually a Muslim seem high, but it's far from definitive. That said, attacking your estranged wife and others in the process of committing suicide is not generally considered politically motivated terrorism.
