And some supermarkets have taken knives off their shelves. The Jihad may have nothing to do with Islam, but it has a great deal to do with sharp objects. After a mosque shooting a few years ago, Ardern’s leftist government
banned most guns. Now some supermarkets and stores are banning knives
and even scissors because the best way to stop Islamic terrorism is to
make sure that no one is able to cut open an envelope.
But it’s easier to ban scissors than to address the real problem. “What happened today was despicable. It was hateful, it was wrong.
It was carried out by an individual, not a faith, not a culture, not an
ethnicity, but an individual person,” Ardern insisted. Jacinda Ardern was under the impression that the ‘I’ in ISIS stands for ‘Individual’, not ‘Islamic’.
The individual of no particular faith, Ahamed Aathil Mohamed
Samsudeen, had been living in a mosque before heading to an Auckland
shopping mall, shouting, “Allahu Akbar”, and stabbing seven people. One
of those people is a 77-year-old man. Another is a 29-year-old woman. Mohamed, a Sri Lankan student named after the prophet of Islam, who received refugee status in New Zealand, spent much of his time in the country plotting to kill Kiwis for Allah.
At his trial, he had warned, “You guys put me in prison cause I'm a
Muslim and you don't like my religion, that makes you an enemy. Allah
says you will be punished." Since Mohamed’s burning desire to kill non-Muslims had nothing to do
with Islam, he was sent to live in the El-Bilal mosque to cure him of
his Jihadist ways. Instead, Mohamed took a train from the mosque to the
supermarket and began trying to kill as many non-Muslims as he could.
The refugee had publicly supported ISIS since at least 2016. Or
three years after he received refugee status. He did everything but take
out an ad in the paper promising to kill the locals. Five years ago, he told a fellow mosque worshiper that he would
randomly stab a bunch of people in New Zealand. During his first arrest,
the police found weapons and ISIS materials, but he got off with
probation and under New Zealand's liberal pro-crime laws, a name
suppression order was issued so no one could possibly know that he had
been charged with anything.
At his trial, Mohammed had claimed that he was interested in the
Islamic State established by Mohammed, his namesake, the founder of
Islam, and that he was collecting ISIS hymns for religious reasons. Including one which declared, "We will drink from the blood of the unbelievers (non-Muslims)." The authorities once again tried to deport Mohamed, who insisted
that he was a refugee who couldn't be deported because the Sri Lankans
might be mean to him. "I'm very afraid of returning to Sri Lanka because I'm afraid of authorities there," Mohamed had whined.
At this point it should have been very obvious that the authorities
in Sri Lanka, assuming that they harbored any ill will for Mohamed,
would have had very good reason to do so. Not only was Mohamed not deported, at least until police bullets
deported him from the precincts of the LynnMall and to whichever suburb
of hell can best accommodate him, but as a refugee, his name couldn’t be
released even after he had gone on a stabbing spree for Allah.
