Man Screaming ‘Allahu Akbar’ Stabs 3 to Death, Says It’s His ‘Jihad,’ Cops Search for Motive


PJ Media” German authorities are baffled: a knife-wielding man, identified in the German media as “Jibril A.,” stabbed three people to death and injured five others in Würzburg, Germany, on Friday. Police and intelligence officials have no idea why he did it. Yes, he was screaming, “Allahu akbar!” during his attacks, and yes, he told police interrogators after he was arrested that he had now carried out his “jihad,” but really, what does that even mean? The German-language Tagesspiegel reported Saturday that “the motive for the fatal knife attack in Würzburg on Friday has still not been fully clarified.” Of course it hasn’t. After all, Islam is a religion of peace!

“Because he Lord has sworn: the Lord will have war with Amalek from generation to generation.” Exodus 17:6

According to Tagesspiegel, Bavaria’s Interior Minister, Joachim Herrmann, said that “it must now be determined to what extent the psychological condition of the 24-year-old Somali played a role.” Hermann revealed that “his condition had been noticed in recent months, including violent tendencies, and a few days ago he was put into compulsory psychiatric treatment.”

Hermann did acknowledge that Jibril’s screams of “Allahu akbar” and identification of his act as a “jihad” do suggest “a possible Islamist motive, and that is also part of the investigation,” but it’s clear that German authorities are favoring the idea that Jibril is mentally ill over the possibility that he is a jihad terrorist.
