A Somali Muslim repeatedly stabbed a police officer and three men at a mosque in Birmingham late last night. The police officer was responding to a  knife fight at the mosque was stabbed. The knee-jerk reaction from the Muslim community is grievance mongering about islamophobia. It’s a pathology of a sort.



Police Officer Stabbed In Mosque Attack Sky News, June 16, 2013

The officer was stabbed as he arrived at a mosque in Birmingham where three people had been attacked by a knifeman.

Three men were stabbed with a large combat knife by a fellow worshipper inside the Washwood Heath Muslim Centre in the Ward End area on Saturday night.

A group of worshippers confronted the attacker, who is not known to the mosque, before police arrived minutes later at around 11pm.

One officer used a taser on the suspect but it failed to have an affect on him, said Chief Superintendent Alex Murray. The policeman was knifed in the chest and stomach, around his stab-proof vest.

A 32-year-old man, believed to be of Somali origin, has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and is currently in custody.

Mohammed Shafiq, the leader of national Muslim organisation the Ramadhan Foundation, said ““There will obviously be people who will try to take advantage of this tragedy but we must not allow them to succeed”.

People, anti-Muslim extremists, are going to try to take advantage of this – it’s very serious that a police officer has been stabbed during duty. The aftermath of the brutal murder of Lee Rigby has led to an increase of attacks.” (here)

Whatever does he mean?  This Isalmic leader is concerned with the wrong things. Alaways looking to blame the kufar. The problem isn’t imaginary “anti-Muslim backlash.” The problem is violence inherent in the Muslim community.  

“I have spoken to someone who lives a few doors down from the mosque and they described hearing an argument between some of the people inside the mosque. It escalated into violence and a police officer has been stabbed.

“People, anti-Muslim extremists, are going to try to take advantage of this – it’s very serious that a police officer has been stabbed during duty.

“The aftermath of the brutal murder of Lee Rigby has led to an increase of attacks. The involvement of a police officer in this incident obviously causes more concern.

Man held as four stabbed at mosque in Birmingham BBC, June 16, 2013

A man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after four people, including a policeman, were stabbed at a mosque in Birmingham.

Officers were called to the mosque on Washwood Heath Road in Ward End at about 23:00 BST on Saturday.

West Midlands Police said three men were found with stab injuries.

As police arrested the man, who is 32 years old, the officer was also wounded. All four are in a stable condition.

The officer, aged 31, and a 28-year-old man suffered multiple stab wounds while a 36-year-old man sustained a single stab wound to his leg. All three were taken to hospital.

Another victim is recovering at home after injuring his hand.

The incident began during the final prayer session of the evening.

Ch Supt Alex Murray said the man they arrested was of Somalian descent and that a “sizeable knife” had been used in the attack.

Mr Murray said officers arrived at the mosque within four minutes of reports of the stabbings.

The suspect was found in a room in the mosque but when challenged he ran at one of the two police officers.

The officer, who suffered chest and stomach injuries, fired a Taser at the knifeman but it did not halt him, Mr Murray said.

“The individual was worshipping but not known to the mosque,” he added, before thanking and reassuring the local community.

Domestic dispute

Dr Arshad Mahmood, who was at the mosque, said: “A man started stabbing one of the guys who was just sitting right next to him.

“I don’t know what exactly was the reason but he just started stabbing him.

“We went to save him. He had multiple injuries, three or four wounds.

“Then the policeman came and was also attacked and stabbed.”

Mohammed Shafiq, the leader of national Muslim organisation the Ramadhan Foundation, said his thoughts were with the injured and their families.

“I have spoken to someone who lives a few doors down from the mosque and they described hearing an argument between some of the people inside.

A 32-year-old man has been arrested following the incident on Saturday night

“It escalated into violence and a police officer has been stabbed.”

According to Mr Shafiq, a nearby resident believed the dispute was a domestic incident between mosque members.

  1. Can you believe it, there was no mention of this incident in Irish NEWSPAPERS today? Not only are the Irish antisemitic, their attitude to the British and her police is equally as bad. I have to read about the incident in the Jewish Press of Israel!

  2. Scott Ward says:

    horror!!

  3. Grace Acosta says:

    Mistake number one, police actually entering the mosque. They should have let Allah sort it out. Mistake number two, bringing a taser to a knife fight. Even Crocodile Dundee knows that!

    It sounds to me like UK cops are as hampered by PC policies as the IDF are when it comes to dealing with terrorists.
