An Allahu Akbar August

"I thought mad dogs foamed at the mouth, galloped, leaped and lunged at throats, and I thought they did it in August."

To Kill a Mockingbird



In Roanoke, Virginia, Wasil Farooqui had attacked a couple with a knife while shouting, “Allahu Akbar”. His targets, a Muslim man and his non-Muslim girlfriend, had been swimming in the pool and were behaving immorally by Islamic standards. The Pakistani attacker had recently traveled to Turkey and was suspected of trying to join ISIS. His male victim had been cut “all over his body, including his neck.”

Wasil’s lawyer fought hard to keep jurors from hearing about the “Allahu Akbar” part of the attack because it would play on stereotypes. He brought in a professor to testify that, “Allahu Akbar” is used to “express praise or appreciation.” But the judge made his decision and jurors will hear the grim sound of Allahu Akbar in the courtroom just as Wasil’s victims did.

The defense in this case, as in almost every other Muslim terror case, is mental illness. Wasil had been “hearing voices”. Since a homicidal maniac hearing voices is how Islam was founded, that’s not much of a defense against accusations of Islamic terrorism. If antipsychotics had existed in the 7th century, ISIS, Al Qaeda, Hamas and the everyday horrors that tourists have encountered this August would not exist.

August isn’t quite over yet, but there’s been quite a few expressions of praise and appreciation this month sung in the same key as the pool hating Pakistani living on the Great Indian Warpath.

Just this weekend, a Muslim from Luton drove up to Buckingham Palace. Her Majesty’s unwilling subject might have been looking for the Queen, but she was over at Balmoral Castle in Scotland. When the police came to have a word with him, he reached for a 4 foot sword and shouted, “Allahu Akbar”. The Bobbies, traditionally unarmed, maced him. He managed to cut up their hands before being arrested.

Earlier, a Somali in Brussels had expressed some praise and appreciation by stabbing Belgian soldiers while shouting, “Allahu Akbar”. They belatedly shot him dead. A Koran was found in his possession.

It’s hard to think of any European events that could better have validated the mayor of Venice’s declaration that anyone shouting, “Allahu Akbar” in St. Mark’s Square would be shot by snipers.

But it’s been a fairly busy Allahu Akbaring August.

Early in August, the Eiffel Tower had to be shut down after a Mauritanian Muslim effusively expressed his appreciation to Allah by waving a knife and shouting that he wanted to kill a French soldier for ISIS.

The authorities claimed that he had psychiatric problems.

Parisian tourist attractions have been special targets of Islamic praise and appreciation. Back in February, an Egyptian Muslim with a machete shut down the Louvre while shouting, “Allahu Akbar”.

Some extremely unappreciative French soldiers shot him.

But at least French Christians and Jews appreciated the break from Allah’s interfaith blades.

Last year, Muslim attackers shouting Allahu Akbar had slit an 84-year-old priest’s throat and a Turkish Muslim teenager had attacked a Rabbi carrying a Torah with a machete while shouting, “Allahu Akbar”.

But this year, a Muslim broke into the apartment of an elderly Orthodox Jewish nursery school director, beat her and then threw her out the window. He shouted anti-Semitic slurs, recited portions of the Koran and shouted, “Allahu Akbar”. Previously he had visited a Jihadist mosque.

So of course the authorities blamed mental illness.

Finland got its first official terrorist attack in August as a Moroccan Muslim refugee shouting, “Allahu Akbar” began stabbing women. The Muslim migrant came to Finland after trying his luck in Germany. His rampage claimed the lives of two women and wounded six women and two men trying to help.

The slaughter appears to be another of Merkel’s presents inflicted on the rest of Europe. It might be Germany’s best gift to Finland since the Lapland War.

The reign of terror in Spain that began with a van attack in Barcelona ended when Younes Abouyaaquob, the driver of the van, was hunted down by police. He yelled, “Allahu Akbar” before he was shot. His five mates in nearby Cambrils had also been shouting, “Allahu Akbar” before police nailed them.

It had been a bloody Allah August in Spain. The terror cell had killed 16 people and wounded over 100. But this terror season in Spain had actually started early in late July when a knife-wielding Muslim, stop me if you’ve heard this one before, attacked a police officer while shouting, “Allahu Akbar.”

After several months of bloody Allahu Akbaring in the UK, the dog days of summer were quieter. At least until a Muslim with a 4-foot sword showed up at Buckingham Palace. Taha Hussain, who had developed the unappreciated habit of driving around the street while shouting, “Allahu Akbar” was found guilty.

In these trying times, no one really wants to hear that sort of thing in their neighborhood.

In Germany, the authorities decided that a man who shouted, “Allahu Akbar” while stabbing people at a train station in Munich last year was just mentally ill and not a terrorist. Meanwhile shortly beforehand, a Muslim refugee had stabbed seven people in a Hamburg supermarket while shouting, you’ll never guess what. One of the supermarket stabber’s victims died. The authorities claim he was mentally ill.

Closer to home, at the start of August, some 400 miles from Wasil’s stalking grounds, a Nashville man named Kaden began shouting, “Allahu Akbar” at a Kroger’s while claiming that he had a bomb. Just as in the case of the Barcelona van driver, there was no bomb. Back in June, a Tunisian Muslim had walked over to an airport police officer and shouted, “Allahu Akbar” before stabbing him in the neck.

But that’s the way it goes. Sometimes August is hotter than usual. Other times it’s cooler. Sometimes the Allahu Akbar stabbings flare up in London and other times in Paris. But like the weather, Islamic terrorism is always there. If it’s not happening where you live, then it’s erupting somewhere else.

Back in Roanoke, once the trial gets properly underway, jurors will be allowed to consider whether Wasil Farooqui’s yell of “Allahu Akbar” indicated that he was a terrorist or just expressing praise and appreciation while stabbing two people who had committed the crime of going swimming.

And, like all the Allahu Akbar stabbers in Germany and France, it’s just madness. The madness that causes the mad dogs of the Jihad to foam at the mouth and leap at infidel throats in the dog days of August. The madness of a mad prophet who commanded his followers to kill all the black dogs before he got around to ordering the ethnic cleansing of the Christians and Jews of Arabia.

August is usually hot. But when the Allahu Akbar shouters come around, it’s best to stay out of the water. If, like Queen Elizabeth, you can retreat to a castle, you should do so. If you can’t, be careful on the sidewalks of resort towns and in cafes. Walk carefully in London and Paris. Stay on guard at the Louvre, Buckingham Palace, London Bridge and the Eiffel Tower. And if you hear a shout of, “Allahu Akbar”, better hope that you’re in St. Mark’s Square and that there are trusty snipers watching.

And if you can get through a European vacation without hearing, “Allahu Akbar”, then thank God.

Must be time for a 'report' on the uptick in 'islamophobia' during August.

Noel Coward composed it too soon when he wrote, “Mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the midday sun.” It should have been “Mad dogs and Muslims go out in the midday sun, armed with machetes and rented vans.” It doesn’t quite rhyme and the rhythm is a bit tricky, but it would be apropos nevertheless.

To be an Islamist means being insane.

No one need worry about islamic expansion and its attendant violence. Except for maybe the Jews. But...besides the Jews...nobody needs to worry. Well, except for the Maltese.

Hmmm...there is that whole mess with islamic sectarian fighting and all the troubles in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Syria, Somalia, India and Egypt.

Never mind. Forget what I said.

Thank you for documenting all of those amazing coincidences. However, the learned statisticians will most likely point out that mere association does not correlate with causation.

I suggest that we do a double blind, random selection, cross over study. The major stumbling block would be how to name it. Unfortunately, we are not allowed to name the religion that seems to be associated with the phrase in question nor repeat the words used by the alleged attackers as that would indicate the study is biased due to the investigators having some kind of unnamed phobia.

I guess we just need to learn to live with these seemingly random acts of mental instability. Funny thing though, this random type of illness does not seem to affect Eskimos, aboriginal bushmen, Buddhist monks, or Irish Catholic nuns. Any idea why?

Do the 'allah akbar' attackers go to the mosque BECAUSE they are mentally ill?? Or do they PICK UP their mental illnesses at the mosque??

And it's only going to get worse. When will the first church or synagogue be burned to the ground or blown up in N. America by "Allahu Ackbar" types? I'm surprised no churches or synagogues have been blown up or burned down in Europe yet, but maybe that's only because there's so few of them left.

Now we know what Obama and the progressives meant by hope and change. They meant, we hope that Islam destroys America and changes it into a 3rd world hellhole (where we live protected in gated communities because we pay our jizya).

Pelosi notwithstanding, can one still yell Oily Barackbar in a crowded bathhouse ?

If there weren't any madness in this world, the self-styled "experts" - or 'sophisticated, tolerant, educated, non-discriminating,' as lefties prefer to call themselves - would have to invent it to explain their, ah, crazy support criminals in general, Islamist terrorists in particular.

So here we have, once again, the explanation for the followers of the Religion of Peace's genocidal mania: mental instability. Of course it's hard to believe that ALL Muslims as potty ... although ... But it seems to be the Out of Prison card (literally) for all criminals the left is so keen on "rehabilitating through love, forgiveness and understanding." Funny how lefties never seem to find it in their hearts to apply the same love, forgiveness and understanding to white western conservatives in general, Christians in particular.

Maybe we don't deserve the left's love and understanding. I mean, people who believe in a religion founded by a Man who preached presenting the other cheek one's offender, who abhorred violence, and who forbade the killing of other human beings, especially defenseless, unborn babies, must be truly certifiable and a real threat to society.

.... authorities claimed he had psychiatric problems ....

No doubt truthfully, given that islam has an unblemished 1400-years-and a half-billion buggered and butchered bodies-long record of having made a raping, sexually-mutilating, mass-murdering, sister, goat, one-another and little-boy-buggering psychopath of its every votary since its founding by its similarly-afflicted false fuehrer, the author of its Mein Koranpf: "a homicidal maniac hearing voices."

Islam is only doing what Islam does.
It is always either at your feet or at your throat.
It used to be at our feet, until a catstrophic series of weak leaders, supine people and ignorant churches/religious types succumbed to complacency and a louche disregard for the likes of Reagan. Freedom always a generation away from extinction-but the clever elites thought him thick. Oh dear.
Islam smells the fear, our useless states cower. If our churches were worth persecuting, then they`d be so-as it is, they`ll fall into the laps of the uluma.
The likes of Daniel give me hope and keep me sane.

Yes.

Go to the Pew and Gallup web sites and look at the various polls that have been taken of the Ummah. 84% of the population of nice secular moderate Jordan, to quote one horrifying example, favors death for apostasy.

They are all Islamicists. All of them.

Well said. Absolutely True.

And even if it wasn't so, did the fact that in 1941 only around 7% of Germans were Nazis and the Japanese had for ever, it seems, been lovers of peace, prevent both of their societies from very shortly thereafter being systemically psychopathologically barbarian?

Speaking of rabies ...
Winston Churchill once said that Islam in the mind of a man is more dangerous than rabies in a dog. Of course, nowdays you can be arrested in England for quoting Winston Churchill.

Brian Richard Allen said...

Mr Winston Churchill, did, indeed. To whit: ... "How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity.

"The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property—either as a child, a wife, or a concubine—must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the Queen: all know how to die. But the influence of the religion paralyzes the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science—the science against which it had vainly struggled—the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome." -- The River War:" First edition Volume II 1899
