“Allah Told Me to Come Here and Kill People”

The Religion of Peace™

(Gates of Vienna)  -  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%.

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.
