SHOCK: German authorities admit supermarket murderer was a jihadi

13

The failed asylum seeker who carried out a deadly knife attack in a Hamburg supermarket likely had a ‘radical Islamist’ motive, German prosecutors have said.

But the admission is still veiled by the nonsense phrase “radical islamist.” It’s not “radical,” it’s Islam. And “islamist” is a Western construct. What does it mean to say that someone or something is “Islamist” as opposed to “Islamic”? Nothing, really, except that the person speaking doesn’t want to offend Islam by speaking unwelcome truths about the political nature of the religion.

That said, it is something. It’s a step up from “mental illness,” “lone wolf” and other nonsensical terms cowards use for fear of offending islam.

The failed asylum seeker who carried out a deadly knife attack in a Hamburg supermarket likely had a ‘radical Islamist’ motive, German prosecutors have said.

The attacker is reported to have screamed ‘Allahu Akbar’ before running into the Edeka shop where he stabbed one person to death and slashed at four others while trying to flee.

Prosecutors have since said the 26-year-old named Ahmad A had ‘self-radicalised’ after toying with the extremist ideology for some time.

But they say there is no evidence he carried out Friday’s attack as a member of ISIS or any other terror organization – or that he was in contact with or influenced by anyone.

‘It appears that there is a radical Islamist background to the act,’ prosecutors said in a statement with reference to the attack on Friday.

Two days before he launched the attack, the suspect ‘finally decided to adopt a corresponding lifestyle’ – they said.

‘On the day of the act, he resolved to commit an attack with the hope that he would die as a martyr,’ added prosecutors.

On Friday afternoon, the suspect entered a supermarket on a lively street in Hamburg and took a kitchen knife measuring around 20cm from the shelves.

‘He ripped off the packaging and then suddenly brutally attacked a 50-year-old man who later died,’ said deputy police chief Kathrin Hennings.
