“Lone wolf” knife attack. There are no lone wolves in the global jihad. Every Muslim fighter is a soldier in the War in the cause of Islam. How is it possible that 15 years after 9/11 and the subsequent close to thirty thousand deadly Islamic attacks, the media uses the term “lone wolf”? And still calls those of us who have warned of this for years, “racist” “islamophobes”?
ISIS claimed responsibility. Millions of lone wolves.

“Isil claims responsibility for Hamburg knife attack that killed teenager,” By Chloe Hubbard, Agence France-Presse, The Telegraph30 October 2016:
Isil claimed responsibility for a “lone wolf” knife attack in Hamburg on October 16 which left a teenager dead, the Isil-affiliated news agency Amaq reported.
The jihadist group claimed the act of terrorism was in response to its calls to target civilians of coalition countries involved in Iraq and Syria airstrikes.
“A soldier of the Islamic State stabbed two individuals in Hamburg city on the 16th of this month,” the release said, in response to “calls to target the citizens of coalition countries” that are fighting Isil in Iraq and Syria.
Hamburg police reported a knife attack on the banks of the Alster river on October 16.
One victim, a 16-year-old boy, was fatally wounded, while his 15-year-old female companion escaped unharmed.
Police never found the attacker, described as aged 23-25 and of “southern” appearance.
“The motive for the crime is unknown and the subject of further investigation,” the October 17 police statement said.
The news agency DPA reported that a police unit which investigated political crimes was brought onto the case after Isil claimed responsibility for the attack.
The German air force is participating in the anti-Isil bombing campaign in Iraq and Syria with refuelling and reconnaissance flights.
Germany has so far escaped a major terrorist attack by Isil along the lines of those carried out in France and Belgium, although it has foiled several plots and suffered numerous lone-wolf attacks by individuals.
A teenage girl is on trial in Hanover after wounding a police officer with a knife in February, with prosecutors arguing Isil is behind the attack.
In July, Isil claimed it was behind a suicide bomb attack which wounded 15 people, as well as an axe attack in a train by a teenage asylum seeker which left five people hurt.
June saw a group of men arrested on suspicion of planning a bomb attack on Dusseldorf, while another suspected bomb-maker was arrested in eastern Saxony in October but later killed himself in his cell.
Previously, a 41-year-old Iraqi was killed by police after wounding an officer in Berlin in September 2015.
A month before, two German jihadist fighters claiming to belong to Isil in Syria released a video in which they threatened Germany and Chancellor Angela Merkel.
