If I told you a Muslim driver drove into a Australian shopping crowd of people with an SUV as revenge for ‘the poor treatment of Australia for Muslims’, would you then say ‘Terrorism’? You are wrong apparently, it is called ‘mental illness’.
Yes, political correctness seems to have nit a new high when Australian authorities declared that 32-year-old Mr Saeed Noori, an Australian of Afghan descent, declared that he did the horrific act which mowed down 19 people of whom several are still critically injured because of the poor track record Australia has of treating Muslims, and therefore his act is not considered ‘terrorism’ but an ‘act of ‘mental illness’.

Victoria Police acting commissioner Mr Shane Patton explained that Mr Noori had declared: "During questioning he made utterances, talked about dreams and voices but nonetheless did attribute his actions, he said, to the way that Muslim people are being treated, so based on that we haven't ruled anything out.”
“Obviously we've done search warrants last night and we haven't found anything at all to indicate his linkage or involvement with any type of extremism, with any terrorist organization or anything of a terrorist nature.”
"So given the mental illness background and everything we need to step carefully and the investigation is ongoing."
