Muslim attempts beheading in Virginia

This past weekend, a devout Muslim slashed a couple in Roanoke, Virginia, seemingly attempting to behead one of them.  ABC News reports:

The FBI has launched a federal terrorism investigation into a weekend stabbing in Roanoke, Virginia, looking at whether the attacker may have been trying to behead his victim in an alleged ISIS-inspired assault, sources told ABC News.

Federal authorities have been aware of the alleged attacker, 20-year-old Wasil Farooqui of the Roanoke area, for some time, sources familiar with the case told ABC News. In the past year, sources said, he traveled to Turkey and may have tried to sneak into Syria, where ISIS is recruiting and inspiring sympathizers from around the world.


How many times have we heard that a jihadist was on the radar of the authorities prior to an attack, only for the attack to occur anyway?  We are not taking appropriate action soon enough.  Any Muslim who’s tried to join ISIS is a walking menace who could target anyone at any time.

The report continues:

On Saturday, Farooqui allegedly injured a man and woman at an apartment complex in Roanoke, yelling “Allahu akbar” -- God is great -- as he attacked them with a knife, sources told ABC News.

Stop (again)!

Allahu Akbar does not mean God is great.  It means “Allah is supreme!”  Big difference.  Those few words sum up the essence of Islam: supremacism.  Would that the media could get this right.  Not that they care.  Or if they do care, they’re invested in getting it wrong.  As if they won’t one day feel the wrath of Islam’s greatest God heaped upon them.

But back to the report:

Authorities believe he may have been trying to behead the male victim, who was likely picked at random, ABC News was told. But on Tuesday -- after news of the case surfaced nationwide -- a spokeswoman for the Roanoke County Police said that while the male victim was cut “all over his body, including his neck,” police do not believe the case looks like a beheading attempt.

So they initially said Farooqui was likely trying to behead his victim.  Now they say that’s not the case.  Maybe the correction is truthful.  Maybe it’s not.  We have plenty of reason to be suspicious, given the trend toward dhimmitude by politically correct public officials.

And what would a report on jihad be without the incorrect, confused, ignorant, and/or intentionally misrepresentative hypotheses about motive?  Here they are laying the groundwork:

Asked whether Farooqui may be suffering from mental illness, the spokeswoman declined to comment.

So to recap: A Muslim man whom authorities were already aware of, who in the past year had traveled to Turkey as a way to enter Syria to join ISIS, returns to the United States and shortly thereafter attacks a couple with a knife, perhaps attempting to behead one of them, all the while screaming, “Allahu Akbar.”

I’m going to go out on a limb and call it what it is: jihad.  As mandated in the Quran.

And if I may offer a final word since the presidential election is coming up: Hillary Clinton’s policies will put a knife’s edge to all of our necks.
