Mental illness is the get-out-of-jail-free-card for Islamic terrorism. And the enemedia is only to happy to acquit. Ihsas Khan was a supporter of the Islamic State. The Islamic State (ISIS) has called upon individual Muslims in Western countries to mount lone wolf jihad attacks, targeting innocent civilians for stabbing. That’s exactly what Ihsas Khan did. This “mental illness” plea is just trying to play on the West’s all-encompassing denial of jihad.
“‘I’m going to kill you… Allah Allah’: ‘Ramblings of ISIS supporter before he stabbed a man in the head’ outside a barber shop in Sydney’s west,” by Lauren Ferri and Mark Brook, Daily Mail Australia, January 30, 2019:
An alleged Islamic State supporter who stabbed a man in his Sydney neighbourhood said he was going to kill him as he aimed repeated blows at his head, a jury has been told.
Ihsas Khan, 25, is on trial in the NSW Supreme Court after pleading not guilty to committing a terrorist act and wounding with intent to murder over the attack at Minto, in Sydney’s southwest, in 2016.
Khan is not disputing he stabbed Wayne Greenhalgh but is fighting the charges on the grounds of mental illness.
Mr Greenhalgh gave evidence on Wednesday that Khan said ‘I’m going to f***ing kill you … Allah Allah’ during the incident which occurred as he was walking near Khan’s home.
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.
Crown 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….
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….
