This was predictable. Jihad murderers are using the left’s (media, academia, etc.) whitewash of Islam as a legal defense. Islam as a mental illness defense.

A former alleged ISIS supporter who stabbed his neighbour with a hunting knife near his Sydney home has pleaded not guilty on the grounds of mental illness.
Ihsas Khan, 24, appeared in the NSW Supreme Court on Tuesday, where he was charged with engaging in a terrorist act and wounding with intent to murder.
The charges relate to the stabbing attack of Khan’s neighbour Wayne Greenhalgh, 57, in the southwestern Sydney suburb of Minto on September 10, 2016.
Mr Greenhalgh was on his way home when Khan, then 22, allegedly came out of his house and chased the victim with a hunting knife, stabbing him in the doorway of a hair salon, news.com.au reported.
ADVERTISINGCrown prosecutor Caroline Davenport SC said during her opening address the alleged victim was walking near his house when Khan attacked him with a knife.
When police arrived the former alleged self-radicalised Muslim was heard to say ‘Allahu Akbar’ and ‘I want to die today’, the court heard.
Justice Geoffrey Bellew said on Tuesday he didn’t anticipate there would be any debate that Mr Greenhalgh was stabbed with a knife on the date in question.But when the 24-year-old fronted the court on Tuesday, the jury heard he has pleaded not guilty to both charges on the grounds of mental illness.
The trial is expected to take about three weeks.
