“And kill them wherever you find them” (Koran 2:191)
“Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah” (Koran 4:76)
“I will cast terror into the hearts of the disbelievers. Therefore strike off their heads” (Koran 8:12)
You can’t argue with Allah. Well we can. The “believers” in Allah and the Koran can’t. And so Ali’s actions were perfectly understandable.
The man accused of attacking a military recruiting centre in Toronto yesterday shouted “Allah told me to do this, Allah told me to come here and kill people,” according to Toronto police Chief Mark Saunders.
Police have laid charges including attempted murder against Ayanie Hassan Ali, 27, who is accused of committing an unprovoked double stabbing attack yesterday at a military recruiting centre.
Saunders says the incident could have been far more serious if a group of six to eight trained soldiers had not stepped in to take down the attacker.
A source with knowledge of the investigation told CBC News the suspect mentioned “Allah.” This may have prompted investigators to look into a possible terror connection.
