German Man Kills One, Injures Four in Knife Attack at Train Station
Police arrested a German 27-year-old man after he stabbed four people at a Grafing, located 23 miles east of Munich, train station early Tuesday morning.
The suspect killed a 50-year-old man while he was on a train bound for Munich. He injured three other men, aged 58, 55, and 43. Witnesses claim the man screamed “Allahu akbar” during the attack, but officials said they do not have “evidence for an Islamist motive. Bavaria Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann said the man has “a history of mental health problems.”
From Deutsche Welle:
According to Karl-Heinz Segerer, the 27-year-old German suspect stabbed the first victim in a waiting train at the Grafing S-Bahn train station at around 4:50 a.m. The suspect, who was barefoot, then exited the train and stabbed a second person on the train platform. The attacker left the station and stabbed two further men who were cycling by outside.
Police arrived soon after and arrested the man, who offered no resistance. Bloody prints from bare feet on the train platform could be seen in TV images of the scene as police carried out their investigation later.
One of the victims later died of the injuries. Another remains in serious condition.
Palestinians have used knives to attack Israelis in the last six months months. Israel reported 120 attacks between October and December with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu calling the knife attacks “a new kind of terrorism.”
Amos Harel, military and defense analyst for Ha-aretz, said younger Palestinians have chosen to use knives or sharp objects to attack Israelis:
Obviously the most common weapon here is knifing and stabbing. The interesting aspect from my view is that it’s mostly done by very young people, and that these young people are not afraid to die at all. These youngsters are perfectly aware that most chances are that they will get killed anyway.
In March, a Palestinian attacked Yonatan Azarib, an Israeli, in Petah Tikva. Azarib managed to take out the knife and killed his attacker with it.

The answer to this kind of violence is knife control and a five day wait to purchase a knife with an extensive background check.
If the attacker is member of any of the “victim” classes, Germany will have to do one of three things:
1) Set up a commission to determine why this POS hates his victims;
2) Teach his victims to reject their own privilege;
3) Teach his victims to not engage in micro-aggressive behavior.
MSM is so far completely baffled, but will not rest in trying to discover the motive.
The important thing, the uber-alles thing, to take away from an incident where a man successfully murders and/or injures others while yelling “Allahu akbar,”
that it had nothing to do with Islam.
Only mental illness.
The ever-knowledgeable Robert Spencer has it nailed.
“Are you starting to see a pattern? Authorities should start asking themselves why so many mentally ill people embrace Islamic jihad violence. And this sort of thing happens so often that the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders should consider adding “Islamic jihad” as a mental illness to its next edition.”
Nowhere in the report is the suspect’s ethnicity mentioned, so let me hazard a guess….
Let’s see…definitely not white/ethnic German, else that would have been mentioned right off the bat….
Gee, what else could it be, then? Couldn’t be a Turk or some other middle eastern immigrant, could it? Nah, those people are “peace loving,” “just wanting a better life for themselves and their children,” etc.
Gee, I’m stumped ~
That is exactly why I keep my k-bar locked up. Knives cannot be trusted! They have even inflicted cuts on my fingers when I am not alert around them.
Witnesses claim the man screamed “Allahu akbar”
Yes, very nice and all, but—as anyone who’s ever actually dealt with witnesses knows—not as reliable as it seems.
you forgot the “/” sarc tag…
They were probably just mistaken. I bet he hollered I wanta candy bar.
I believe it is an Hawaiian saying, “Aloha snack bar”.
Isn’t islam a mental illness?
