UPDATE June 25, 2015: Zak Ali has admitted to being a neo-Nazi white supremacist who was carrying out a “white power” attack.
Last week, a young man named Zack Davies ran amok in a Tesco supermarket in north Wales. He attacked a Sikh, Sarandev Brahambra, with a hammer and a machete, leaving him with serious injuries. This story from the Mirror last week identifies the victim by name but describes him only as “Asian,” without ever saying he was Sikh, and also says: “The attacker was shouting ‘White power’, witnesses said, and detectives have confirmed the assault appeared to be racially-motivated.” So this was presented to the British public as a an attack by one of those right-wing racists that British authorities are much more concerned about than they are about Islamic jihadists, and this attack appeared to substantiate their concern.
There’s just one catch: Zack Davies is a Muslim who calls himself Zak Ali, and who warned on his Facebook page on the morning of his attack in Tesco: “The wrath of Allah is about to come down upon the kaffir, I will have my revenge.” He also posted four Qur’an verses (identifying the suras as “books”) that call for violence against unbelievers:
Book of Al-Anfal, verse 12 ( 8:12) – “I (Allah) will instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers: smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off.”
5- Book of Al-Baqara, verse 191 (2:191) – “Kill them wherever you find them, and drive them out from wherever they drove you out.”
6- Book of Al-Baqara, verse 193 (2:193) – “Fight them on until there is no more tumult and religion becomes that of Allah”
7- Book of Al-Tawba verse 29 (9:29) – “Fight those who do not believe in Allah and the last day… and fight People of the Book, (Christian and Jews) who do not accept the religion of truth (Islam) until they pay tribute (Jizyah tax) by hand, being inferior.”
The fact that Zak Ali is a Muslim who clearly believes in jihad against unbelievers doesn’t mean that this wasn’t a “white power” attack. As I have noted before, neo-Nazis have an affinity for Islam, based on their shared Jew-hatred. The British media, however, has not reported on the jihad aspect of this attack at all. Yet two reports strongly suggested that at least some British journalists know that the perpetrator was a Muslim, and are covering up that fact. The Mirror ran a photo of Zack Davies that appears on Zak Ali’s Facebook page — but it is remotely possible that they got it from somewhere else, and didn’t see Zak Ali’s page. Also, the Daily Post ran a story Monday with the headline, “Mold Tesco attack sparks fear in Sikhs across Wales.” Only Sikhs? But wasn’t this a “white power” attack against an “Asian,” which would mean that Muslims should be just as fearful as Sikhs? But neither this story nor any other says anything about Muslims being afraid after this “white power” assault on an “Asian” — a strong indication that the British media knows that the attacker was a Muslim, and are concealing this from the British public. “Community cohesion” must be preserved at all costs!
“Mold Tesco: First picture of Zack Davies accused of ‘racially-motivated’ attempted murder of shopper,” by Luke Traynor and Steve Bagnall, Mirror, January 16, 2015 (thanks to Clayton for this link and for alerting me to the attacker’s Facebook page and identity):
This is the first picture of a man accused of a racially-motivated attempt to kill an Asian customer who was shopping in a Tesco supermarket.
Shoppers fled for their lives when Zack Davies, 25, allegedly ran amok on Wednesday afternoon, armed with a machete and a hammer in Mold, north Wales.
Victim Sarandev Brahambra, 24, was left with ‘life-changing’ injuries after suffering deep cuts to the left hand, his back and the back of his head.
He was seen being wheeled out of Tesco by paramedics towards an ambulance with thick bandages wrapped around his skull.
The attacker was shouting ‘White power’, witnesses said, and detectives have confirmed the assault appeared to be racially-motivated.
Rich Fay, 20, said: “It was chaotic. The staff told everyone to get out of the store
“Everyone was bewildered, quite a few shoppers didn’t realise what was happening.”
Davies appeared before magistrates in Wrexham today where was charged with attempted murder.
He confirmed his name, address and date of birth before he was remanded in custody.
Wearing a grey top with short cropped hair, he was flanked by two security guards as he stood in the dock.
Davies, from Mold, will appear before the crown court next month.
