“Allah Told Me to Come Here and Kill People”

As reported in last night’s news feed, a man walked into an armed forces recruiting center in Toronto and stabbed two soldiers. He was subdued by six or eight other soldiers before he could stab anyone else.

I’m pleased to report that the incident is now known to have a Mohammed Coefficient of 0%. However, it’s still quite possible that the alleged crime had traces of cultural enrichment, since the suspected assailant is named Ayanie (or “Ayanle”) Hassan Ali. None of the reports refers to the fellow’s ethnicity — he is in fact a “Québécois”, since he was born in Montreal — but judging by his photo, he appears to be a Somali.

Toronto Police Chief Mark Saunders hastened to admonish the public not to engage in Islamophobic thinking concerning the incident: “One of the things I want to be very careful of when it comes to the national security piece that we don’t go do that Islamaphobia nonsense.”

And quite rightly. The fact that the young miscreant invoked the name of Allah is nothing more than a data point. The investigation is still in its early stages. We need to learn a lot more about this youngster before we make any judgments. Let’s wait for an evaluation by the mental health professionals.

And, in the meantime, what if some other mischievous youth attacks non-Muslims with a sharp implement while yelling about “Allah”? No, it’s still too early. We need more data points.

How about a dozen more such attacks? No.

A hundred? A thousand? No.

Even then it would still be Islamophobia to make any judgments. And it will remain Islamophobia right up until the day when CBC announcers begin their nightly TV newscast with the words: “In the name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful…”

The most detailed report I’ve seen so far on yesterday’s multicultural mayhem was published by The Times Colonist:

Accused in Military Stabbings Said Allah Told Him to Carry Out the Attack

TORONTO — A man who allegedly said Allah instructed him to kill was charged Tuesday with stabbing and wounding two uniformed soldiers at a north-end military recruitment centre a day earlier.

While investigators were probing possible terror links, the city’s police chief said there didn’t appear to any connection to terrorist groups, although it appeared the man had deliberately targeted military personnel.

“To date, there is nothing to indicate the accused is working with anyone or in concert with any organization,” Chief Mark Saunders said. “It will take some time to have a complete picture.”

The incident occurred mid-afternoon Monday, when a man walked into the government building that houses a Canadian Armed Forces recruitment centre on the ground floor.

He walked into an office with a “large knife” in hand and began striking a uniformed master corporal, who fell to the ground, Saunders said. The soldier was able to get to his feet, at which point the suspect slashed his right arm.

As military personnel moved civilians to safety, police said he tried and failed to slash a female soldier before other soldiers were able to subdue him and hold him for police. Another military member was stabbed trying to apprehend the suspect.

“While at the scene, the accused stated that ‘Allah told me to do this; Allah told me to come here and kill people,’” Saunders said.

Following the arrest, the accused became “non-responsive,” Saunders said, meaning he refused to answer any police questions. He was taken to hospital because of his behaviour. The two soldiers required treatment for minor injuries.


Saunders said Toronto police were working with federal security and anti-terrorism forces on the investigation. At the same time, he warned the public against any anti-Islam sentiment in the aftermath of the attack, saying Islamic extremists are relatively tiny in number.

“One of the things I want to be very careful of when it comes to the national security piece that we don’t go do that Islamaphobia nonsense,” Saunders said. “I don’t want this categorizing of a large group of people; that would be very unfair and very inaccurate.”

Police named the suspect as Montreal-born Ayanie [sic] Hassan Ali, 27, who moved to Toronto in 2011. Ali was charged with several offences, including two counts of attempted murder and aggravated assault. He was due to appear in court later Tuesday.

Saunders said the Canadian citizen had no previous criminal record and he appealed for anyone who might have helpful information to contact them. Police were obtaining search warrants for the man’s west-end home. They also said he had family, but did not elaborate.

For a slightly different take, see this article from AFP via Yahoo News:

Toronto Attacker Said ‘Allah’ Told Him to Stab Soldiers: Police

Ottawa (AFP) – A man who stabbed two Canadian soldiers at a military recruiting office in Toronto on Monday said he was acting on orders from “Allah,” police said.

Police chief Mark Saunders told a press conference, however, that suspect Ayanle Hassan Ali, 27, appears to have acted alone and that so far “there is nothing to suggest the accused is working with anyone or in concert with any organization.”

The alleged assailant entered a government office building Monday afternoon and without provocation stabbed a soldier in the arm at the reception desk, then sought to wound a second soldier before he was subdued.

Neither victim was seriously wounded, police said.

Saunders said the suspect was overheard saying at the scene of the assault, “Allah told me to do this, Allah told me to kill people.”

Ali was charged Tuesday with attempted murder, aggravated assault, assault with a weapon and possessing a dangerous weapon. He was scheduled to make a brief court appearance in the afternoon.

Asked if investigators viewed the assault as an act of terrorism, Saunders said: “We’re looking into it.”

The Toronto police have asked federal prosecutors and security agencies for help in determining if there is a link to organized extremist movements, he said.

  1. And so Police Chief Saunders joins that long line of other public figures who think it is their duty to defend a religion, in this case —and in virtually every other case—Islam. What he is actually doing here is warning the media (which needs little convincing to follow his “party line”) and the public (which is becoming increasingly perceptive) not to let our thoughts go where the facts are pointing. It likely pained Chief Saunders greatly to repeat the attacker’s words for he knows that they unavoidably shine a light on Ali’s religion, Islam. The only way to avoid implicating Islam is to have Ali declared mentally unbalanced. The search for any meagre scrap of evidence to show this is, no doubt, underway right now, not just by the police but also by the media and the Islamic community of Canada.

    It would be refreshing if a member of the media dared to ask Chief Saunders how he defined “Islamophobia.” But that would require an inquiring mind. It’s maddening how this term can be used to suppress inquiry into the teachings of Islam.

    • Thanks Jen for those excellent realistic ideas, descriptive of our miserable leaders, who bend backward to distort facts and reshape them. They deceive us and we still go and vote for infants.

      “It would be refreshing if a member of the media dared to ask Chief Saunders how he defined “Islamophobia.”

      What? members of the media do not dare ask worthy, sensitive, logical questions. They know, this dictatorship clothed in sheep’s democracy, would result in losing his job.

      • Chief Saunders – if it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck and swims like a duck IT’S A DUCK!
        Just do your job, you are not a theologian, you are a policeman. This man is patently a terrorist and if you make excuses for that, or try to rationalise that you should rapidly become an EX policeman!

  2. Welcome to Tel Aviv… sorry, I meant Toronto.

    Gee, I thought that this wasn’t supposed to happen if we soft-supported Islamist extremism by not bombing ISIS??? Justin, what went wrong with your plan???

    Can we have Harper back?

    • Mike . . I hate to say this: Humans lack empathy. The west thinks that the Jews put themselves in that situation: Being mass stabbed.

      If enough westerners will be stabbed then they would PROBABLY stop blaming the Jews. I hope/ pray Israel will find clever ways to defend and protect themselves from the plague of the last 1435 years.

      This is not something new.

  3. I miss Stephen too.
    allah did no such damned thing–there being no allah!

    In the meantime, the entire west is filling up with these inbred, delusional, murderous, semi-literate losers, courtesy of the leftist/liberal/labour/democrat/Marxist swine! (apology to pigs everywhere)

  4. Uh, the “organized extremist movement” the perpetrator is linked to is called … wait for it … Islam.

    • Yes.
      Memo to Toronto Police Chief:
      It is “an ideological political movement” (Anjem Choudary).
      Its instructions can be found in its book, and include:
      “When you meet the non-muslims strike the neck…..(K.47:4)
      “Kill them wherever you find them” (K. 9:5).
      These instructions are explained as the words of Allah.
      They are true, universal, and trans-time.
      Denying them is a death penalty offence, enforced vigilante-style.

  5. Just look at his crappy eyes, his face reminds you of two things : hell and the Father of all Pirates. (pi b u h) .

    Are we not lucky our democracy and elected wise rulers have brought these pieces of gold among us, enrich our culture and blaze our newspapers with exciting incidents that are related to Allahu akbar but have nothing to do with allhu akbar according to our “feckless; half-asleep leaders”

    Hey little leaders lull us to sleep: A lone wolf/ jihadi, does not belong to a group, please no backlach against a certain group you might think he represent, even if he said allhu akbar, he does not, too early to describe it as “terrorism”, If it is we drag our feet a few months, then people, as usual will forget about it, and everyone will be safe including the Ali, that most important, to show that we love them, we win their minds and hearts. That’s the replacement theology.

    Real democracy is when you surrender your teenagers to sons of the Pirate with a sword, and show them how to colonize your countries.

    And those who oppose that are criminals.
    Don’t you feel you want to pluck what is remaining of your hair?

  6. As found in The Camp of the Saints:

    And when the thousand years shall be finished, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, and shall go forth, and seduce the nations, which are over the four quarters of the earth, Gog, and Magog, and shall gather them together to battle, the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. [8] And they came upon the breadth of the earth, and encompassed the camp of the saints, and the beloved city. Apocalypse 20.

    • Good one, Strelnikov !

      I commented to a friend recently that Pope Frankie ought to canonize Jean Raspail immediately (even though the man is still living, I believe), and issue his ‘Camp of the Saints’ as an encyclical.

      The next verse is also quite telling :

      9 And there came down fire from God out of heaven, and devoured them; and the devil, who seduced them, was cast into the pool of fire and brimstone, where both the beast

      10 And the false prophet shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
      Douai-Rheims, Apocalypse 20:9-10

      The ‘false prophet’ is clearly a separate individual … not the devil or the Anti-christ. My guess is that his name is Mohammed.

  7. I don’t think this is directly relevant to the specific article but I have to say I do get so very sick of people not having to answer the right questions. It is by the lack of knowledge that people can try to create whatever reality they want. It is the power behind ideological subversion.

    Police called in “terror experts”.
    Have you noticed?
    The word “terror” is surreptitiously standing in for Islam these days. Soon it will become too obvious, and they will have to come up with a new substitute.
    “The gentleman made comments….”
    Soon everyone will rumble that that means “Allah made me do it”.

  9. The reaction from the Canadian police is completely unsurprising.

    Canadians are probably more dhimmified cuckolds than anyone other than the Swedes.
