After an Afghan asylum seeker went on a stabbing rampage, slashing away at 3 innocent people, officials told the media that he may not be found guilty all because of 2 simple words.
As the West accommodates millions of unvettable Muslim migrants, it finds that the oppression and violence these asylum seekers claim to be fleeing is actually deeply ingrained. In fact, the very barbarity that the left cites as the reason for the ceaseless flood of refugees immigrating to our nations seems to have followed them on their arduous trek.
Disturbingly, countries that have taken in their “fair share” of refugees are also experiencing a disproportionate rise in crime at the hands of their new arrivals. However, instead of identifying the obvious correlation between the skyrocketing crime rate and the growing number of asylum seekers, Western leftists are avidly protecting the violent migrant perpetrators under the guise of victimization.
On September 29, a 21-year-old Afghan asylum seeker brandished a large knife and ran through downtown Ravensburg in Germany, initiating a horrific stabbing rampage. However, despite being talked down by the town’s mayor and arrested for attempted murder, officials are now saying that the refugee may walk free because they believe he is merely suffering from a “mental illness,” according to Die Welt.
He is accused of attempted murder and dangerous assault. However, according to the preliminary report, the man’s liability for guilt was ruled out or at least considerably reduced in the act.
The Afghan attacked 2 Syrian asylum seekers as well as a 52-year-old German man who attempted to intervene, according to Breitbart. The rampage occurred in the outer area of a local restaurant.
The public prosecutor’s office released a statement alleging that the asylum seeker initially wanted to brawl with a co-worker after feeling offended over comments made by the man. When the employee in question refused to meet him for a fight, the Afghan pulled out a large kitchen knife and began stabbing random bystanders in the town center.
Officials maintain that the 21-year-old stabbed victims “suddenly and in the context of a psychotic experience” and suggest that he should not be held accountable for his actions. They add that he may be suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) due to past experiences in Afghanistan.
The Afghan has since been taken to a psychiatric facility for evaluation. Instead of an arrest warrant, a so-called housing warrant was issued, Süeddeutsche reports.
The Afghan was only thwarted when Ravensburg Mayor Daniel Rapp confronted him and told him to drop the knife. Rapp told the media that the refugee put down his weapon “instinctively.” He also expressed his concern that the stabbing spree may cause an uproar among locals who oppose refugee resettlement. Likewise, the state minister for integration for Baden-Wuerttemberg Manne Lucha chastised those demanding a cap on mass migration.
“We do not divide ourselves from people who are now abusing this terrible act for political purposes and pouring out hatred and malice on all those who stand and stand for cohesion in this city.”
Of course, this isn’t the first time that Germany, the beacon of multiculturalism and liberal progress, has blamed mental illness for violent crimes committed by asylum seekers. In fact, this excuse is often cited as a means of protecting the migrant perpetrators.
In July 2017, despite confessing that he wanted to be a jihadist, authorities excused a knife attack by a Palestinian migrant on mental illness. The failed asylum seeker had reportedly screamed “Allahu akbar” as he stabbed to death one and injured 6 others in a Hamburg supermarket.
Of course, the left must never admit that the motivation for such acts is explicitly commanded in the Quran.
Quran (3:151) – “Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers, for that they joined companions with Allah, for which He had sent no authority.”
Quran (47:3-4) – “Those who disbelieve follow falsehood, while those who believe follow the truth from their Lord… So, when you meet (fighting Jihad in Allah’s Cause), those who disbelieve smite at their necks till when you have killed and wounded many of them, then bind a bond firmly (on them, i.e. take them as captives)…”
Quran (2:191-193) – “And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah [disbelief or unrest] is worse than killing… but if they desist, then lo! Allah is forgiving and merciful. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah [disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allah] and worship is for Allah alone.”
Because the left has established that Islam is inherently peaceful, they find themselves scrambling for every excuse to explain why Muslims are committing a disproportionate amount of crime and terrorism. Disturbingly, a chosen favorite is mental illness, which marginalizes everyone who deals with mental illness but has never exhibited violent tendencies.
