But police do not suspect any “terror motive”.
Via PJ Media:
On Thursday, a man shouting “Allahu Akbar” stabbed Orthodox Rabbi Shalom Levy in Strasbourg, France, down the street from the Great Synagogue.
This attack occurs just over one month after the Bastille Day terror attack in Nice that killed 85 and wounded 307, and three weeks after French priest Jacques Hamel was slaughtered during mass in his church in a village near Rouen.
However, though predictably, French authorities are already dismissing any ties to terrorism. Media has already invoked discussion of the “mental illness” of the suspect.
But some reports indicate that the suspect was involved in ANOTHER stabbing of an Orthodox Jew in 2010.
It appears Thursday’s incident is yet another “known wolf” attack. The Daily Mail reports:
A rabbi has been stabbed in Strasbourg, allegedly by a Muslim.
The attacker, who has been arrested, shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’ — God is great — as he stabbed the 55-year-old man, Le Journal du Dimanche reported.
The Hasidic man was ‘moderately’ injured in the attack outside a brasserie in the north of the city, according to local reports.
The attacker is believed to have a history of mental health issues.
A source to the investigation told French station BFMTV that terrorism has been ruled out, however they are unsure of the man’s motive.
Officers have ruled out a terror motive for the attack and believe the suspect has suffered serious mental health issues.
“Mental health.” “Ruled out a terror motive.”
A curious response, considering he targeted a Jew, yelled “Allahu Akbar” … and was involved in a similar stabbing in 2010:
