An Ohio man whose Middle Eastern restaurant in February was the scene of a frightening machete attack that left four people wounded believes he was the target of a terrorist.

Hani Baransi, an Israeli-born Catholic whose Nazareth Restaurant and Deli is adorned with the Jewish State’s flag, told FoxNews.com he suspects a “lone wolf” was behind the attack, a conclusion FBI and police have so far not made publicly. The assailant, Mohamed Barry, a Muslim from the West African nation of Guinea, was shot dead by police in a confrontation outside the restaurant shortly after the attack.

“It was a targeted killing,” Baransi, 50, told FoxNews.com. “It was definitely an assassination attempt. This person went through town looking for someone like me.”
