We shall see once again in the coverage of this incident that the one thing the UK government and media will want you to know about it is that it has nothing whatsoever to do with Islam, and that Muslims in the UK fear an “Islamophobic” backlash.
“BREAKING: Machete ‘Syria revenge’ stabbing in London now treated as TERROR attack,” by Alix Culbertson, Express, December 5, 2015:
A man was stabbed in the ticket hall at Leytonstone station this evening by another man who witnesses say shouted “This is for Syria” as he slashed his throat.
Another three are thought to have been injured.
The Met Police said its counter-terrorism command unit is now investigating the incident.
Police said they used a taser on the suspect as he threatened others with a knife, before they managed to arrest him.
The victim was rushed to hospital in a serious condition with multiple stab wounds, paramedics said.
Frightened witnesses described how their normal Saturday night-out turned into a horror show.
One said the victim was an “elderly” man with a younger female family member while another said the man had a long knife, which looked like a machete.
A video taken by another witness shows a big pool of blood just outside the ticket barrier as police confront the attacker, then taser him before putting handcuffs on him and arresting him.
One witness, who did not want to be named, said: “So as I was going to Leytonstone station was dressed to go to Christmas dinner with people from work.
“As I walked down I just saw a lot of people running but I ignored it and kept walking to get my train, but suddenly what I saw I couldn’t believe my eyes and what I saw was I guy with a knife and a dead guy on the floor.
“I was so scared I ran for my life. After good 10-15 police came and got the guy and arrested him.
“And as he was coming out this is what he said “This is what happens when you f*** with mother Syria all of your blood will be spilled”.”
Evitri Payet said fellow witnesses were shouting at the suspect: “You’re not Muslim.” …
Yes, he ceased being Muslim the moment he did something that made Islam look bad.
