The police are saying this wasn’t terror-related, and the Australian Prime Minister says they don’t yet know the killer’s motive. They’re suggesting he is mentally ill. This was predictable. Jihad murderers are using the left’s (media, academia, etc.) whitewash of Islam as a legal defense. Islam as a mental illness defense. But in reality, it seems clear that Mert Nay is a scrupulous follower of the law of Allah. He had a USB stick “suggesting he had some ideologies related to terrorism.” The willful ignorance of authorities in Australia (as well as Europe and North America) seems impervious to the facts.
“Blood-soaked man ‘shouting Allahu Akbar’ in Sydney’s CBD attempts to stab multiple people – with one woman rushed to hospital and another found dead with throat slit in nearby building,” by Charlie Coë, Kelsey Wilkie, Hannah Moore and Daniel Piotrowski, Daily Mail Australia, August 13, 2019:
A blood-soaked man screaming ‘Allahu Akbar’ has gone on a rampage with a knife through central Sydney – allegedly killing a 21-year-old woman inside a unit and stabbing another in the back at a nearby pub.
The dead woman was found inside a Clarence Street apartment, allegedly with her throat slit, after the knifeman was subdued by heroic bystanders about 2pm using chairs and a milk crate in Wynyard Street after attempting to stab multiple people.
Police are investigating whether the alleged attacker, Mert Nay, 20, from Blacktown in the city’s west, had escaped from a mental institution.
They do not believe it is a terror-related incident, and said the alleged attacker did not have links to any terrorist organisations – despite witnesses reporting the attacker was muttering religious slogans including ‘Allahu Akbar’.
NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller have said they found information on the man in the form of a USB stick ‘suggesting he had some ideologies related to terrorism’.
Dramatic footage showed the man, wearing a grey hooded jumper and holding a large knife, jumping on top of a Mercedes while screaming ‘shoot me in the head’.
Brave witnesses were able to tackle the man and pin his head down with a milk crate until police arrived and arrested him as hundreds of workers gathered.
Police praised on Tuesday evening the civilians, fire fighters and ambulance staff for preventing ‘what could have been a much worse situation’.
NSW Police said the woman’s body was found in the unit on Clarence Street at 3.15pm, with a witness saying it was found on the building’s fourth floor….
Moments before the attacker was arrested, another woman was found inside the Hotel CBD with a stab wound. She was taken to hospital in a stable condition.
A painter working on a mural near where the man was arrested witnessed him charging down the street with a ‘big kitchen knife’ with five or six people in close pursuit.
Witness Jess Warren, 35, said she was was having lunch at the Regiment CBD cafe when the knife man was finally arrested.
She told Daily Mail Australia fire and rescue workers wielding an axe and a crowbar, and a few civilians, two brandishing chairs, had given chase before finally restraining him.
‘One of the guys who was chasing pushed him in the back, then as he was falling the firies got him in the legs, and then they pinned him down with the chairs,’ she said.
‘Then they just sat on him until the cops came.’
‘People couldn’t believe it, then everyone started standing on their chairs to see over the crowd.’…
Ms Hales described the man as being in his late 20s or early 30s, Caucasian and with dark curly hair….
Prime Minister Scott Morrison has described the incident as ‘deeply disturbing’ while commending the bravery over the bystanders who stepped in to help.
‘The violent attack that took place in Sydney this afternoon is deeply concerning. The attacker is now in police custody following the brave actions of those who were present at the scene and were able to able to restrain him,’ he shared on Twitter.
‘The motivation for this attack has not yet been determined as Police are continuing with their enquiries. Any further offical information will be provided by the New South Wales Police, who are keeping us appraised through our agencies, including details of casualties.’…
The knifeman was seen jumping on top of a black Mercedes shouting ‘Allahu Akhbar’ and brandishing his weapon moments before the businessman ran towards him with a chair.
‘Oi,’ the businessman yelled, ready with his chair.
‘Shoot me, shoot me in the f***ing head,’ the knifeman yelled as he stormed through the intersection….
