Faisal's motivations are far beyond our severely limited, grossly restricted understanding of recent events. We will never know or comprehend what could have caused such a fine young man to act in such a way. (due to politically correct obstruction of inconvenient realities) Mental illness is the new, hot, politically correct explanation, so we are going to run with that in this case. There is no need to look for any deeper motivation, connecting this with so many other "unexplained" and under-examined, attacks on every single continent except Antartica. "trust us" " we know what is best" "we are your intellectual and moral superiors" ....Please ignore the obvious theocratic compulsions, suggesting, and religiously compelling such behavior. That is, in fact, codified in his Islamic system of belief! They are needlessly provocative, possibly "racist" and run counter to the favored prevailing PC narrative. Never, ever, look on page 52 in the footnotes of verse (2:190) from the Noble Quran, published by the Saudi government. The truth may be lurking there.
(V. 2:190) Al-Jihad (holy fighting) in Allah’s Cause (with full force of numbers and weaponry) is given the utmost importance in Islam and is one of its pillars (on which it stands). By Jihad Islam is established, Allah’s Word is made superior […] and His Religion (Islam) is propagated. By abandoning Jihad (may Allah protect us from that) Islam is destroyed and the Muslims fall into an inferior position; their honour is lost, their lands are stolen, their rule and authority vanish. Jihad is an obligatory duty in Islam on every Muslim, and he who tries to escape from this duty, or does not in his innermost heart wish to fulfill this duty, dies with one of the qualities of a hypocrite.

Instructions from the Islamic state. September 2014 (hat tip Robert Spencer Jihad watch)
So O muwahhid, do not let this battle pass you by wherever you may be. You must strike the soldiers, patrons, and troops of the tawaghit. Strike their police, security, and intelligence members, as well as their treacherous agents. Destroy their beds. Embitter their lives for them and busy them with themselves. If you can kill a disbelieving American or European — especially the spiteful and filthy French — or an Australian, or a Canadian, or any other disbeliever from the disbelievers waging war, including the citizens of the countries that entered into a coalition against the Islamic State, then rely upon Allah, and kill him in any manner or way however it may be….If you are not able to find an IED or a bullet, then single out the disbelieving American, Frenchman, or any of their allies. Smash his head with a rock, or slaughter him with a knife, or run him over with your car, or throw him down from a high place, or choke him, or poison him
