The victims were two Americans, a Swiss citizen and a Dutch citizen. Their crime was not being Muslim. That’s why they were murdered. The devout Muslims ran them down with their car and then jumped out of the car and stabbed them. We have seen the same thing happen in the West: vehicular jihad, followed by stabbing attacks against the victims. But the media is too concerned with hunting down incidents of “islamophobia” to notice.
“IS claims deadly attack on tourists in Tajikistan,” by Akbar Borisov, AFP, July 30, 2018 (thanks to RN):
Dushanbe (Tajikistan) (AFP) – The Islamic State jihadist group on Monday claimed an attack that killed four foreign cyclists in Tajikistan in what was originally reported as a hit-and-run road accident.
The victims, two Americans, a Swiss and Dutch citizen, were struck by a car and attacked on Sunday while on a popular cycle route in the Danghara district, about 100 kilometres (60 miles) south of the capital Dushanbe.
“(The suspects) had knives and firearms,” said interior minister Ramazon Hamro Rahimzoda, adding that two other cyclists, Swiss and Dutch nationals, were injured and hospitalised.
“One tourist received a knife wound and is being given medical assistance. The victim’s condition is stable,” said Rahimzoda, without mentioning a nationality.
Another cyclist with the group, a French citizen, escaped without injury and had been questioned by police, he added.
In a statement published Monday, IS said that a “detachment from the soldiers of the Caliphate” had carried out the attack against “citizens of Crusader coalition countries,” according to intelligence monitor SITE.
Five people suspected of involvement in the attack were killed by police and at least four suspects detained, according to separate police accounts.
Among the dead suspects was 21-year-old Jafariddin Yusufov, the owner of the Daewoo Leganza car that struck the tourists on Sunday afternoon, local officials said.
A Belgian cyclist who said he arrived at the scene after the attack told Flemish broadcaster VRT that he saw “several cyclists on the ground. Some were completely shocked”.
“When I asked what had happened, the first thing someone said was that they had been hit by a car and that the people who had come out had started stabbing them with knives,” cyclist Nicolas Moerman said….
“We can’t say if it is an act of terror,” Rahimzoda said earlier on Monday.
“We are considering all possibilities,” he added but said that “state institutions are being guarded… to provide safety for citizens and tourists”….
The Swiss foreign ministry on Monday told AFP that Switzerland “calls for every effort to be made to shed light on this serious incident”.
“If it is established that this was a terrorist attack, it will be noted in (Switzerland’s) future travel advice for Tajikistan,” said ministry spokeswoman Silvia Muller while noting that the motive for the attack was still unclear….
