But… the motive for the attack remains unclear.
A 30-year-old Afghan asylum seeker was shot dead in the city of Ansbach, Germany on Thursday after stabbing random people at a railway station, reportedly while yelling “Allahu Akbar!”
The incident took place at around 6 p.m. and saw the attacker, who is said to be an asylum seeker from Afghanistan who arrived in Germany in 2015, attack a 17-year-old young man from behind, grabbing him and falling down a flight of stairs. He is then said to have tried to sit on the teen and stab him with one of the two knives in his possession.
As the teen fought back against the Afghan, another man attempted to come to the aid of the victim. He was also attacked, suffering stab wounds and cutting injuries. The asylum seeker then fled the area, but police caught up with him a short time later, pursuing him until he attempted to approach the officers and was shot three times, German tabloid Bildreports.
Initially, it was speculated that the attack may be related to radical Islamic terrorism, as the phrase “Allahu Akbar!” has been heard in a number of terror attacks in Europe in recent years, but on Friday police claimed that there was so far no known extremist motivefor the attack.
Ansbach Criminal Police Inspectorate Criminal Director Dieter Hegwein asserted that investigators believe the Afghan acted alone and the motive for the attack remains unclear.

Germany is in a bad way. Ever since Stasi Merkel turned the nation inside out, the German gov’t is stuffed with unqualified degenerates, Marxist ideologues & Gaia worshipers.
Says they’re extremists who want to overthrow the government…
Howler of the day:
Pali thug-in-chief Mahmoud Abbas is in Germany rattling his begging bowl and bitches about the evil Jews who won’t let him have a Pali terror statelet.
In 1972, Palestinian terrorists from the Black September terror group, which was linked to Abbas’ ruling Fatah party, broke into the Olympic Village where the Israeli athletes were staying, killing two and taking others hostage. They demanded the release of 234 Palestinians in Israeli prisons, as well as members of the German left-wing Baader Meinhoff terror group, who were held in German jails.
The rest of the eleven hostages and a police officer were killed during a failed rescue attempt by West German police.
The Times of Israel reported:
Asked whether as Palestinian leader he planned to apologize to Israel and Germany for the attack ahead of the 50th anniversary, Abbas responded instead by citing allegations of atrocities committed by Israel since 1947.
“If we want to go over the past, go ahead,” Abbas, who was speaking Arabic, told the reporters.
“I have 50 slaughters that Israel committed….50 massacres, 50 slaughters, 50 holocausts,” he said, taking care to pronounce the final word in English.
Scholz, who later expressed regret about Abbas’s remark, is being criticized in the German media for not doing so in real time.
In Germany, the term “holocaust” cannot legally be used except in the context of the Nazis’ slaughter of six million Jews in World War II.
Abbas, 87, has a long history of Holocaust denial. He denied the scale of the Holocaust in his Ph.D. thesis for a Soviet university. Titled The Other Side: the Secret Relationship Between Nazism and Zionism, the dissertation claims that the six million figure of Holocaust victims was massively exaggerated, in addition to claiming that Zionist leaders cooperated with the Nazis.
He also claimed in 2018 that Jews were responsible for the Holocaust against themselves — a remark for which he later apologized, under pressure.
Abbas was in Germany for talks about progress toward peace — or the lack thereof — in the Middle East. He is now in the 18th year of his supposed four-year term as president of the Palestinian Authority; he was elected in 2005.
Humbug. Abbas was in Germany rattling his begging bowl. For no other reason.
