Axe-wielding Jihadist Wounds 21 on German Train

"Shortly before he was shot by police, he shouted out an Islamic slogan.”

Muslim immigration continues to prove to be very, shall we say, problematic for Germany, which recently absorbed over a million "refugees" from Muslim countries.

On Monday evening a 17-year-old Afghan refugee attacked passengers on a regional train near Würzburg, in southern Germany with an axe and a knife, injuring 21 people, three critically.

A passenger onboard the train pulled the emergency brake and the assailant then fled, but was later tracked down by a special forces team and shot dead.

Bavarian interior minister Joachim Herrmann told Bavarian TV that the 17-year-old had arrived in Germany seeking asylum as an unaccompanied minor.

“There is a statement that, shortly before he was shot by the police, he shouted out an Islamic slogan,” said Herrmann. Hmm, an Islamic slogan? What might that be?

At this stage it cannot be ruled out that there was an Islamist motive for the attack, Herrmann added, which is shockingly open-minded of him. As it turns out, a hand-painted flag of the Islamic State group was later found among the assailant's belongings.

The BBC reported that a witness said the train carriage where the attack took place "looked like a slaughterhouse." He said he saw people crawl from the carriage and ask for a first-aid kit while other victims lay on the floor inside.

The BBC also noted that in May, a man reportedly shouting "Allahu akbar" had killed one man and wounded three others in a knife attack at a railway station near Munich, but "authorities said they had found no links to Islamic extremism."

Of course they didn't. No doubt the Obama administration and the mainstream media also will find this jihadist's motive "very difficult to untangle" and Progressives will manage to find a way to blame the NRA.
