Australia: Muslima who stabbed sleeping man in neck while screaming “Allahu akbar” pleads guilty

Australia: Muslima who stabbed sleeping man in neck while screaming “Allahu akbar” pleads guilty, by Melissa Iaria.

A Bangladeshi student who plunged a knife into the neck of her Melbourne homestay host has pleaded guilty to engaging in a terrorist act in the name of violent jihad.

Momena Shoma, 25, entered the plea to a single charge during a brief Victorian Supreme Court hearing on Thursday.

The diminutive woman came to Australia under the guise of a student visa and had been in Australia a week when she allegedly took a 25cm kitchen knife to Roger Singaravelu’s neck as he dozed beside his five-year-old daughter.

By her plea, Shoma admitted the act at the Mill Park house last February was done with the intention of “advancing a political, religious or ideological cause, namely violent jihad”.

It was also done to coerce, or influence by intimidating, the government or the public, or both. …

Shoma told police Islamic State had been encouraging women to carry out jihadist attacks in the West and most of her interaction with the group was via Facebook.

I just felt obligated, and it was like a burden on me. Yeah, I just had to do it.

Yes, but would she vote for the Labor Party?

The disgust is at the system that lauds Islam as a religion of peace, ignores the evidence about Islam, and lets in such people without vetting. A rather conspicuous lack of due diligence coupled with political self-interest, at the expense of the rest of us.
