A man who might be a Somali, and who was not known to any of the regular worshipers in attendance at the mosque in Britain, came into the mosque, became agitated and and attacked worshipers with a knife. Three regular worshipers at the mosque were stabbed as well as a policeman answering the emergency call. The policeman first shot the man with a Tazer but it seemed to have no effect. Other worshipers helped the policeman who ultimately subdued the perpetrator. A local doctor who was among the worshipers treated the injured until the emergency team arrived.
The perpetrator is being held in a mental health facility on suspicion of attempted murder after doctors deemed him unfit for questioning. .
The brave police officer Pc Adam Koch said: ‘I owe those people a massive debt of thanks and if it wasn’t for their help, bravely running towards a man they’d already seen brandishing a large knife, I may not be here today. ‘As soon as I’m back on my feet I intend to visit the mosque and ask the imam to pass on my gratitude to the worshippers who put their own safety in jeopardy to assist me. ‘In the end it was a great community effort to overpower the man and arrest him.’
The Islamophobes couldn’t resist an opportunity to make another mountain out of a molehill like the False Kodak bomb threat claim of two days ago.
Robert Spencer found this incident “Jihad Watch” worthy and he opines: “When you have a religion that teaches that human beings are the executors of the wrath and vengeance of the supreme being, and that apostates and heretics should be murdered, this kind of thing is going to happen.”
His partner in hate, Pamela Geller writes Muslim with Machete Stabs Police Officer and three men at a mosque in Birmingham and opines “A Somali Muslim repeatedly stabbed a police officer and three men at a mosque in Birmingham late last night. The police officer who was responding to a knife fight at the mosque was stabbed. The knee-jerk reaction from the Muslim community is grievance-mongering about islamophobia. It’s a pathology of a sort.”
What nonsense! No jihad, no machete, no knife fight – just an obviously deranged man being held in a mental institution until he is capable of being interviewed carrying out an unprovoked violent attack on other people. The fact that a tazer had no effect on him increases the chances that he was also on drugs.
The fact that the perpetrator may be a Muslim has no bearing at all on the incident. There are no facts anywhere that would identify this individual as an “Islamist” or “radical Muslim” engaged in a “jihad plot”, or this event as a “jihad” or any of the other baseless suppositions and wild claims made by the Islamophobic echo chamber. These folks just don’t understand the fact that Muslims can be crazy, criminal, or perverted too!.
