- Woman has been charged with an ‘Islamic-state inspired’ stabbing in Melbourne
- The 24-year-old Bangladeshi national stabbed a man as he slept in his home
- She was living in the property while studying after moving in on February 1
- Police arrested the woman and charged her with engaging in a terrorist act

Neighbours told Herald Sun the victim was a ‘nice family man’ and was a ‘nice guy’.
Another neighbour said the man called them for help, where they found him lying in the garage in a pool of blood.
‘I saw all the blood, it was shocking, I saw so much blood,’ they said.
The woman was arrested at the scene and taken to hospital with a hand injury.
‘She’s only been in Australia for a week, they took her in because they felt sorry for her,’ another neighbour said.
“When you meet the unbelievers, strike the necks…” (Qur’an 47:4)
“A Bangladeshi woman who recently moved to Australia and held a student visa has been charged after an alleged ‘Islamic State-inspired’ stabbing on a sleeping man who was with his young daughter.”
The Islamic State issued this call in September 2014:
So O muwahhid, do not let this battle pass you by wherever you may be. You must strike the soldiers, patrons, and troops of the tawaghit. Strike their police, security, and intelligence members, as well as their treacherous agents. Destroy their beds. Embitter their lives for them and busy them with themselves. If you can kill a disbelieving American or European — especially the spiteful and filthy French — or an Australian, or a Canadian, or any other disbeliever from the disbelievers waging war, including the citizens of the countries that entered into a coalition against the Islamic State, then rely upon Allah, and kill him in any manner or way however it may be….If you are not able to find an IED or a bullet, then single out the disbelieving American, Frenchman, or any of their allies. Smash his head with a rock, or slaughter him with a knife, or run him over with your car, or throw him down from a high place, or choke him, or poison him….
But remember: to have refused her a room would have been “Islamophobic.”
Acting Deputy Commissioner Ross Guenther said: “This is an isolated incident.”
No. An “isolated incident” is the last thing it is. This is just one small attack in a global jihad that you and your superiors, Acting Commissioner Guenther, do not admit exists, to your own great detriment.
“Sleeping father stabbed in ‘Islamic State-inspired attack,‘” 9News, February 10, 2018 (thanks to N.):
A Bangladeshi woman who recently moved to Australia and held a student visa has been charged after an alleged “Islamic State-inspired” stabbing on a sleeping man who was with his young daughter.
A 56-year-old man was stabbed in the neck while sleeping at his home in Mill Park, north-east of Melbourne’s CBD, about 4.25pm yesterday, police said.
He was taken to the Royal Melbourne Hospital and will undergo surgery today for non-life-threatening injuries.
Momena Shoma, who was renting a room at the home, was arrested at the scene and taken to hospital.
The 24-year-old did not apply for bail when she faced Melbourne Magistrates Court for a brief hearing today.
Shoma, who faced court in a blue jumper with her black hair tied back, suffered an injury to her left hand and will see a nurse in custody, the magistrate heard.
It’s alleged Shoma travelled to Melbourne on a student visa on February 1 and was renting a room at the victim’s Callistemon Rise home while studying.
She was enrolled in a course at La Trobe University, police said.
The state’s Joint Counter Terrorism Team has charged her with engaging in a terrorist act, under the Commonwealth Crimes Act Section 101.1.
Investigators searched the Mill Park home and another property in Bundoora, where she had previously stayed.
Police were not looking for anyone else, Acting Deputy Commissioner Ross Guenther said.
“This is an isolated incident and the community can be assured that Victoria Police is doing everything we can to keep the community safe,” he said.
“The community can expect to see an increased police presence at a number of events today and at major events in the coming weeks.
There were no subsequent threats to the community, AFP acting Deputy Commissioner, National Security, Ian McCartney said.
“We will allege this was a stand-alone, Islamic State inspired attack, designed to cause harm to our community,” he said….
Deputy Commissioner McCartney said there are no subsequent terrorism threats to the community.
Deputy Commissioner McCartney is an idiot. He needs to get hit with a cluebat. He needs to get Islamo savvy. Urgently.
The perpetrator of this “isolated incident” traveled to Australia with the predetermined purpose of “killing an infidel.” This is not my own jaundiced, “islamophobic” speculation. It has even been reported on the ‘nooze’. Ah well! hope springs eternal. Maybe, just maybe , the cracks are beginning to show in the “nothing to do with Islam; suffering from mental health issues; fears of an “islamophobic” backlash against innocent muslims” official narrative. But I won’t be popping the champagne corks just yet!
