Police have said that Smail Ayad had “no extremist motive,” despite screaming “Allahu akbar” as he stabbed Mia Ayliffe-Chung to death.
They said he had unrequited love for Ms. Ayliffe-Chung, and that drove him to murder.
But Ayad also “said he wants to kill everybody.” Did he have unrequited love for everybody? He became “extremely violent” and attacked police; did he have unrequited love for the police? He stabbed Thomas Jackson multiple times in the face, chest and stomach; did he have unrequited love for Thomas Jackson?
Australian authorities doubtless dismissed any terrorism connection because Ayad had no ties to terror groups. What they missed, they missed because they refuse to consider Islam in their studies of terrorism.
Ayad shows the tendency among Muslims to react with a murderous rage that they associate with religious fervor when they are denied, frustrated, rejected.
Is it really wise for Australia or any other country to import large numbers of people who believe that Allah will punish Infidels by their hands (cf. Qur’an 9:14) and that therefore, if they believe an Infidel has wronged them, may decide to become executors of the divine wrath?
Will Ayad become a loyal, productive citizen once he is back in France? What do you think?
