Germany: Muslim migrant who stabbed non-Muslims urged Muslims to murder apostates; authorities search for motive
“The perpetrator of the stabbing attack in Germany was one of the fighters of the Islamic State and carried out the operation in answer to the calls to target the countries of the coalition fighting the Islamic State.”
“Speaking on German public television, Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann said it was too early to speculate about the motives of the attacker.”
This willful ignorance in the middle of a war endangers us all.
“German train attacker urged Muslims to kill apostates in pre-attack video,” Reuters, July 19, 2016:
Islamic State posted a video on Tuesday in which a man whom it identifies as the Afghan refugee who attacked passengers with an axe on a train in Germany vows to carry out a suicide mission and urges other Muslims to do the same.
If he is not pig-ignorant he is complicit.
By you, maybe, Bishop Hofmann. But sane people see quite clearly what is happening. When a Muslim screaming “Allahu akbar” and affiliated with the Islamic State attacks non-Muslims with an axe, it’s just another episode in the global jihad against Infidels. And contrary to the fond hopes and fantasies that prevail in the Vatican, and in the Catholic Church in general these days, no amount of “dialogue” is going to end this jihad that Hofmann and his ilk so determinedly ignore.

“Bishop of Würzburg left ‘speechless’ after axe attack on train passengers,” Catholic Herald, July 19, 2016:
The Bishop of Würzburg said he had been left “speechless” by the axe attack on a train the city on Monday.
Three people from Hong Kong were seriously hurt and another was slightly injured in the axe and knife attack by a 17-year-old Afghan refugee, who was subsequently shot dead by police. A further 14 people were treated for shock.
ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attack, with the claim posted on the group’s Aamaq news agency on Tuesday.
The news agency described the teenager as an ISIS “fighter” who “carried out the operation in answer to the calls to target the countries of the coalition fighting the Islamic State”.
It has been reported that the teenager shouted “Allahu akbar” (“God is great”) and that an ISIS flag was found in his room.
A statement was released on behalf of Bishop Friedhelm Hofmann in which he said, “One is speechless at such a moment. This fact can not be understood.”
In the statement, the bishop said he would pray for all those injured and affected by the attack.
“I especially want to thank all those who have intervened in this difficult situation yesterday and helped, including the police and the rescue services,” he added.
Bishop Hofmann warned against placing all asylum seekers under general suspicion of carrying out attacks. “Maybe we need to help the unaccompanied young refugees even more and help them to overcome their own traumas,” he said.
