Netherlands: Muslim migrant stabs two tourists “to protect the Prophet Muhammad”
Jawed Santani has said: “I was planning to kill unfair and cruel people, those who make it possible for the Prophet Mohammed to be insulted…I wanted to defend my religion and make it clear that my religion should be left alone. If you don’t do that, you should be prepared for these kind of actions.”
This presents free societies with a choice. Either they defend the freedom of speech and refuse to allow any belief system to be placed beyond criticism, or they implement Sharia blasphemy laws and criminalize criticism of Islam in order to try to prevent “these kinds of actions.” In other words, it’s either fight or surrender. Most of the Western political and media elites are in full surrender mode.
“Afghan who stabbed two American tourists in Amsterdam ‘to protect the Prophet Mohammed’ is jailed for 26 years,” by Ryan Fahey, Mailonline, October 14, 2019 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):
Dutch judges on Monday sentenced an Afghan man to 26 years and eight months in jail for stabbing two American tourists at Amsterdam’s Central station in a terror attack.
The 20-year-old, identified only as Jawed S., was also ordered at Amsterdam district court to pay almost £2.6 million in damages following the August 31, 2018 assault.
One of the two victims remains in a wheelchair after the attack, which sent midday commuters at the city’s busiest station into a panic. Police shot Jawed S. in the lower body before arresting him.
‘He never showed any regret or remorse during his trial, repeatedly saying he would do the same again if his religion was insulted,’ the judges said.
‘The risk of a repeat offence is therefore very high and the court finds it essential that society is protected against him as long as possible.’
During his trial at a heavily-fortified courtroom, Jawed S. said he travelled to the Netherlands from Germany to ‘protect the Prophet Mohammed.’
He also mentioned anti-Islam politician Geert Wilders, and his knife assault came a day after the far-right MP announced he was cancelling moves to stage a cartoon competition to caricature the Prophet Mohammed.
Dutch prosecutors charged Jawed S. with two counts of attempted murder with a terrorist aim and judges found all accusations against him had been proven.
‘He (Jawed S.) came to the Netherlands to kill as many people as possible,’ the judges said….
