The Amsterdam Knife Jihadi Gets 26 Years in Prison

A little over a year ago, an Afghan culture-enricher named Jawed Sultani went on a stabbing rampage at Amsterdam’s Central railway station, seriously wounding two American tourists. Mr. Sultani told police that his attack was intended to avenge the honor of Islam after Geert Wilders announced his Mohammed cartoon contest.

Now the Amsterdam mujahid has been sentenced to 26 years in prison, and will have to pay substantial compensation to his victims. Readers should take note, however, of who will actually end up footing the bill for the indemnity.

More than 26 years for the attacker at Amsterdam Central Station, almost three million in compensation

The man who stabbed two American tourists at the Amsterdam Central Station last year has been sentenced to 26 years and 8 months in prison. The court convicted Jawed S. on two counts of attempted murder with a terrorist motive and threats against three police officers. The sentence is longer than that requested by the public prosecutor — 25 years.

In addition, S. must pay compensation of more than €2.8 million to one of the victims. The man is suffering from paralysis, and will probably spend the rest of his life in a wheelchair. The defendant must pay more than €38,000 to the other American.

Watch in the first video what the judge says about the compensation — in the second video, the sentence is announced.

On the question of whether S. can pay the almost €3 million, the victims don’t have to worry. The state pays compensation to the victims of violent crime and sexual offenses, explains NOS justice editor Remco Andringa. “The government then attempts to recover the amount from the perpetrator. But because Jawed S., being an asylum seeker and a detainee, would not have much money, in practice, it will be the government that pays the victims.”

The Afghanistan-born Jawed S. (20), born in Afghanistan, is an asylum seeker who has exhausted all legal remedies in Germany. A year ago, he took the train from Germany to Amsterdam to take revenge for comments by Geert Wilders. With the announcement of a cartoon competition about the prophet Mohammed, Wilders insulted his faith, according to S.

S. was accused of two counts of attempted murder with a terrorist motive. All alleged facts have been proven, according to the court. According to the judge, S. acted with a preconceived plan. “He came to the Netherlands to kill as many people as possible,” she said. “The risk of recidivism is very high. The court must protect society.” Therefore, according to her, only the highest possible penalty is appropriate.

S. himself was not present for the verdict.

Fully accountable

According to the prosecutor, the Afghan was guilty of a terrorist crime. A mental disorder could not be diagnosed. This means that he is fully accountable for what he has done. S. said at a hearing that his plan was to kill “unfair and cruel” people.

The victims were random passers-by. They survived the attack, but were seriously injured.

The wife of one of the victims made this statement. She was 11 weeks pregnant when the attack was carried out. [See video, in English]

  1. Instead of the Dutch taxpayers paying restitution cost, why not let the assailant work it off in prison at 5 Euros per hour, and keep him in jail until he pays it off? On alternate days, he can grow his own food (halal?) in the prison garden.

    Seems fair, and should not take longer than several hundred years.

    • Here’s a better idea…euthanize the Jihadi terrorist and harvest his organs for Dutch citizen(s) since the government is providing compensation to the victims of this [worthless person]! Let him go to hellfire judgment sooner than later! Otherwise he gets to stay in Europe in a “Hilton prison” at the taxpayers expense! Notice a trend here? Denied asylum seekers committing jihad for Allah while ensuring their crimes are heinous enough not to get deported! So why not kill, maim, and rape the kafirs (unbelievers) if stupid, Western governments are going to reward you for it? Solitary confinement with no human interaction, like watching paint dry, is a second choice of punishment if [progressives] can’t bring themselves to putting down terrorists/criminals & harvesting their organs. Dialysis patients typically die waiting for a kidney donation. Think of all the good lives saved for every terrorist, Jihadi bad one!

        • It is far too late to be “better than that”. This is a survival issue now, and sheer brute force & incredible cruelty is the ONLY language the IslamoBorg ZombieDrone hordes understand and/or respect. I would go so far as to say that the traitorous “progressive politicians”, academics and media types who promulgated this disaster should also be on the list of potential donors, DNA-sampled and informed that they could be subject to euthaniation and harvest at any time without prior notice. If this does nto happen on a select, discerning basis now, it is quite certainly going to happen in future in a much more indiscriminate and widespread manner.

  2. How much is it going to cost the Dutch taxpayer to keep this muslim killer in prison for 26 years?

    Incarceration of the muslim killers is not cost effective, the sensible solution is to reintroduce capital punishment and use it with rigour on these muslim killers.

  3. I’m amazed and relieved that they didn’t sheet responsibility home to Mr Wilders and make him pay the compensation. Oops. Shouldn’t have given them that idea.

  4. Mark H. what has compassion & humanitarianism done for Western countries who allow non-compatible, non-assimilating Muslims to invade & terrorize indigenous citizens? We should never tolerate the intolerable!

    America, France, and other countries have adopted a “shoot to kill” policy when dealing with active terrorists. Jawed Sultani went on a stabbing rampage, wounding two American tourists…one in a wheelchair for life! How horrific does a terrorist act need to be in order to invoke a death penalty? Are we better off as a society to overcrowd prisons & warehouse people for life? At the taxpayers expense? Would you want your loved ones to live beside Chris Watts, Scott Peterson, and Jawed Sultani if they are released from prison in 10-26 years? Or is it always out of sight, out of mind, and NIMBY?

    Organ shortages are occurring in other places besides Asia! This poor British woman died and had her organs stolen in Mexico before her body was sent home!

    If terrorists are killed in the act of terrorism, at least put their organs to good use!

    • Better to grind their bodies up and feed them to pigs and dogs. Organ harvesting is too time critical to make dead terrorists good sources. The deterrent effect on islamists of knowing they could wind up as dog food or pig slop is not insignificant.
