The reportage on this horror shows how little the media and political elites understand of the threat. First off, there are no “lone” jihadis — these are Muslim soldiers in the global jihad. And there are millions of jihadis all over the world who are all following the same playbook – the Quran – and the same ideology – Islam.
Secondly, “authorities working to identify the knifeman believe the his motive may have been ‘political.'” It’s not political it’s religious, although under Islam religious and political are the same thing. But the authorities do not even begin to understand that aspect of Islam.
“Munich terror: Lone ‘jihadi’ knifeman kills one and injures several in bloody rampage,” By Rebecca Perring, The Express, May 10, 2016
A KNIFEMAN screaming “Allahu Akbar” has killed one and injured several passengers after he went on a bloody rampage at a train station in Grafing near Munich.
German police say witnesses said the knife-wielding man shouted “Allahu Akbar” (“God is great”) during his rampage at a railway station in the Bavarian town of Grafing, Munich.
One of the victims was initially in a critical condition, but died later in hospital following the the attack at 5am (4am GMT), according to reports.
Police said of the three surviving victims, one is said to be seriously hurt.
The knifeman was caught a few feet away from the station entrance and is now in custody.
The station has been sealed off.
Eyewitnesses said the man stabbed indiscriminately and also attacked a newspaper delivery stand.
Rescue helicopters and ambulances scrambled to the scene and passengers were forced to enter through a side entrance.
Authorities working to identigy the knifeman believe the his motive may have been “political”.
Conflicting media reports have identified the young man as both an asylum seeker and a radicalised German-born who converted to Islam.
Bavarian Radio broadcast said that the knifeman was a “young German not previously known to police.”
The mayoress of Grafing, Angelika Obermayr, said: “The idea that people go on a beautiful morning go into the S-Bahn station or sell newspapers there and then become victims of a madman is just terrible.”
