Update - Austria Knife Attacks - Afghan Refugee Arrested (23)

||| @ENnewsfront | Twitter |||

Police in the Austrian capital Vienna have arrested a 23-year-old man for carrying out multiple knife attacks in Vienna which left four people seriously injured on Wednesday evening.

The young man is an Afghan refugee who shouted to ‘Allah’ whilst carrying out the attack. Police claim it is not terror related as the man has denied a political motive for the attacks.

The suspect told police officers afterwards that he had been in a "bad, aggressive mood" and therefore went on the stabbing rampage.

Of the family of three he attacked, the 67-year-old father remains in a critical condition in hospital.

Vienna police spokesman Patrick Maierhofer said that the Afghan refugee blamed his "aggressive feeling and rage about his life situation."

The Austrian government of Chancellor Sebastian Kurz has strongly condemned the attack, saying such incidents are "unacceptable and may not under any circumstances be tolerated."

In 2017, some 3,600 Afghan nationals tried to apply for asylum in Austria. The country has been one of the largest recipients of Afghan asylum applications but the current government of Mr Kurz has vowed to return that policy.

i guess we need a different phrase than 'islamic terrorism' then. perhaps 'jihad'

The sooner Europe awakens to the reality that is not only invasion but systematic slaughter of their people the sooner this untermensch can be eradicated and justifiably so.
