Two innocent victims were stabbed in a Roanoke apartment building, in what was reported by investigators to be a random attack. The only piece of information that first emerged was eyewitness accounts of Wasil Farooqui yelling “Allahu akbar” as he stabbed his victims. Now we learn:
“The madman who allegedly shouted “Allah Akbar” as he stabbed two victims in Virginia over the weekend may have been aiming for an ISIS-inspired beheading.”
By Western standards, any human committing such an atrocity is deemed “mad,” “crazy,” “insane,” “messed up,” etc. While such acts are indeed “sick” as Westerners know it, our civilized culture fails to grasp the nature and history of jihadi zeal, driven by the will to conquer and indoctrination about the necessity of violence toward the infidel, including commands to “cast terror into the hearts of the unbelievers” (Qur’an 3:151) and “strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip” (Qur’an 8:12).
The madman who allegedly shouted “Allah Akbar” as he stabbed two victims in Virginia over the weekend may have been aiming for an ISIS-inspired beheading, sources told ABC News.
Wasil Farooqui is accused of wounding a man and woman in a Roanoke apartment building when he went after them Saturday evening with a knife, authorities said.
The brutal attacker and his two victims — who may have been picked at random — were taken to the hospital after the stabbing. Though the pair was severely injured, by Monday they were “recovering well,” police said in a statement.
The victims’ names will not be released, police said.
The 20-year-old stabber may have been trying to behead his male victim, according to ABC.
Farooqui has been on the feds’ radar for a while, and may have journeyed to Turkey and tried sneaking into Syria sometime within the past year.
After the August knife attack, the FBI launched a probe into a possible terror connection.
Farooqui has been charged with two counts of aggravated malicious wounding and is being held without bail in the county jail…..
