“A self-radicalised Sydney man stabbed his neighbour in an Islamic State-inspired attack to avenge US bombings of his ‘brothers and sisters in Iraq.'” Ihsas Khan, who has pleaded not guilty because of mental illness, “was on anti-psychotic medication at the time.”
Western authorities frequently claim that jihadis are mentally ill in an attempt to conceal that they are jihadis. If this jihadi was really on anti-psychotic medication, he demonstrates that mental illness and the jihad doctrine are an explosive match. In Western culture, mentally ill people with violent thoughts are deemed to be in urgent need of corrective treatment to help them and protect society. In the jihad ideology, the murder of infidels is rewarded with martyrdom.
The prosecutor, Peter Neil SC, told the jury Khan repeatedly yelled “Allahu Akbar” as he attacked the then 57-year-old without warning.
Unfortunately, many Westerners are still in denial about the jihad doctrine. Khan’s case, if he is legitimately mentally ill, only shows that non-Muslims in the West are at even greater risk.

A self-radicalised Sydney man stabbed his neighbour in an Islamic State-inspired attack to avenge US bombings of his “brothers and sisters in Iraq”, a court has been told.
Ihsas Khan pleaded not guilty on Monday to committing a terrorist act and wounding with intent to murder after his neighbour, Wayne Greenhalgh, was stabbed multiple times at a Minto reserve in 2016.
Khan, 24, who had been taking anti-psychotic medication at the time, pleaded not guilty due to mental illness as his supreme court trial got under way in Parramatta.
The prosecutor, Peter Neil SC, told the jury Khan repeatedly yelled “Allahu Akbar” as he attacked the then 57-year-old without warning on Saturday 10 September.
The court heard that Khan had originally planned to attack a stranger on 11 September to mark the anniversary of the 2001 al-Qaida attack on the World Trade Center in New York.
But a day earlier, Khan spotted his victim wearing a T-shirt with an American motif and decided to enact “revenge for what he regarded as injustices for Muslims in the Middle East”, Neil said……
