“So when you meet those who disbelieve, strike [their] necks until you have inflicted slaughter upon them…” (Quran 47:4)
Knife jihad — spreading like the cancer that inspires it. Blood lust. The victim said he “did not know why” he was attacked. Perhaps he ought to read the Quran.
Four Muslims will start life sentences of prison dawah after they stabbed a man more than 15 times in a west London supermarket, which left him needing life-saving surgery in the street.

“Jailed: Four men to start life sentences after man is stabbed more than 15 times at supermarket,” By Jamie Bullen, January 22, 2016:
Four men will start life sentences tonight after they stabbed a man more than 15 times in a west London supermarket which left him needing life-saving surgery in the street.
Mohammed Mohammed, 21, Zakariya Ibrahim, 19, Saad Sharif, 19 and Hanad Mohammed, 19 were found guilty of attempted murder at the Old Bailey on Tuesday.
On Friday, the men were sentenced to life imprisonment.
A fifth man, Abdi Wahab Mohammed, 26, was found guilty of GBH and sentenced to 10 years in prison after he drove the men to and from the scene.
On June 14 last year, a 29-year-old man was at the Emerald supermarket in Staines Road, Feltham, when he was stabbed in a frenzied attack at around 1.30am
The victim was punched to the ground and stabbed more than 15 times suffering knife wounds to his heart, lung and liver.
Police said the man only survived because of desperate efforts by police officers, paramedics and doctors from the London Air Ambulance to keep him alive at the scene.
He underwent emergency surgery on the street before more life-saving treatment at St Mary’s Hospital where he spent 10 days before he was discharged.
Police said the group fled the scene and added the attack was believed to be motivated by a previous dispute.
The five men were arrested by detectives from the Met’s homicide and major crime command three days after the attack.
Mohammed, of Hanwell, will serve a minimum of 10 years and Ibrahim, of Ealing, has been ordered to serve at least 13-and-a-half years.
Sharif, of no fixed address, will serve a minimum of 15 years and Mohammed, also of no fixed address, was told he faces at least seven-and-a-half years behind bars.
In court, the victim said he does not know why he was attacked and added his life had not been the same.
In a statement read out at court, he said: “I’m grateful to still have my life and to be able to at least walk and talk but my life has not been the same and my recovery will take a long time.
“When I left St Mary’s hospital I was very weak and couldn’t walk very well. All my friends and family kept telling me that I was lucky to be alive.
“I still have not seen the CCTV because I have had to give evidence in this case but this will help me understand what has happened to me.
“Since the attack I no longer feel comfortable out in public and I have stopped socialising with a lot of people because I don’t know whether they might be friends with the guys that attacked me.”
