Of course he did

The 25-year-old Libyan man accused of killing three people in a Reading park shouted “Allahu Akbar” moments before the attack, a court has heard.

Khairi Saadallah, who was living in the Berkshire town, is charged with three counts of murder and three counts of attempted murder.

Our problem here is the Maggie as PM question.

Sure, perhaps this is anecdote not truth but still. Traditionally one way of working out whether a potential nutter is in contact with reality is to ask “Who is the Prime Minister”. This fell into abeyance in the Thatcher years because even nutters knew that Maggie was. Thus it was not a useful test of who was a nutter.

Shouting Allahu Akbar before knifing someone is not evidence of being a terrorist. Or, perhaps, it might be, but it’s also true that those who are nutters might shout it as well.

That is, it’s not definitive either way. Thus it’s not useful as a test. For it’s not distinguishing between the type of voices in the head that lead to the stabbiness.

  1. It has to be treated as definitive evidence of terrorism unless we intend to go down the “but was he actually intending to detonate that suicide vest he was wearing” route.

    In a world of intersectionality why should terrorising and mental instability be mutually exclusive?

    On a similar note news reporting from Glasgow has gone awfully quiet.

  2. Reporting from Glasgow hasn’t ‘gone quiet’ at all. Every #scummedia apparatchik is interviewing every asylum seeker they can get their grubby mitts on to tell the audience how poorly they were treated in the hotel the taxpayer shelled out to put them in, and how they didn’t get enough free food.

    If someone shouts “Jesus Christ!” I tend to assume they are NOT active evangelical Christians.
    But they may be non-Jews, non-Muslims.

    Just an assumption, you see.

  4. Who cares? I suppose not all nutjobs are Islamists, but all Islamists are nutjobs. In the absence of the death penalty, it is better when Plod just shoots them.

    We need to start dumping illegal immigrants back on French beaches and sinking their boats.

  5. @ Maritime Barbarian
    Could even be Hindu (not a particularly devout one in the example that immediately comes to mind)

  6. Is there something about Islam that drives a disproportionate number of it’s practitioners insane? It’s beginning to look suspiciously like that.

  7. ‘We need to start dumping illegal immigrants back on French beaches and sinking their boats.’ The only other way would be to re-introduce hanging.

  8. Dear Mr Worstall

    According to a chap I met who claimed to be in the ‘security’ services, declaring an attack to be a ‘terrorist incident’ opens up a whole new chest of taxpayer treasure. It’s the police equivalent of winning the lottery.

    Apparently last year the police arrested as many “far right” activists as Islamic ones. Maybe a little bit more.

    Which tells you where the Elite’s priorities are. They do not care if we are killed by their pet immigrants. They do care if Tommy Robinson gets any votes.

  10. 6 people murdered by darkies in the last two weeks and not one: protest march, riot, incident of looting, reprisal attack on perpetrators cousins, call for all migrants to be deported, wall to wall coverage 24/7 in the MSM, etc., etc.

    Us honkeys aren’t very good at this game are we?

    Moriori. That’s what we are.

    And when Major took over the problem continued, but in reverse, since even sane people couldn’t generally name the PM.

  13. Man walks into busy restaurant and shouts, “Allahu Akbar” and everyone dives under tables.

    Man walks into busy restaurant and shouts, “Jesus Christ is risen” and everyone carries on, pretending not to notice to avoid embarrassment.

  14. The killing of unbelievers is like a form of indulgence for muslims. If you are a bad muslim – drinking eating pork etc you can book your place in islamic heaven by killing a few believers. As this piece of garbage was described as being a bad muslim and in fact had pretended to convert to christianity (to help his asylum application) the only way he could redeem his sins was to kill a few unbelievers in Allah’s name. Fucking awful evil death cult.

  15. Pretending to be another faith is an established tactic amongst the RoP.

    Some grooming gang leader passed himself off as a Sikh by changing his name and wearing a turban. Media scum fell for it but wife kids etc still RoP and most telltale–he enjoyed peaceful life until buckled. Real apostates/converts receive violence and a miserable life amongst the Peaceful Ones. Phony converts they don’t care about.
