Afghan who attempted ax murder in German sent video to ISIL
Like other insta-jihadis in Nice and Orlando, Muhammad Riyad declared his loyalty to the terror group just before going on a violent rampage.Will liberals quit wondering what his motivation was? He was an Islamic religious bigot who wanted to commit mass murder for Allah. It is what they do. Europe's problem is they can't tell the Islamic religious bigots from other migrants. They do not know how many poison jellybeans are in the jar they have invited into their country.
Before 17-year-old Muhammad Riyad went on an axe rampage on Monday, slashing at least 20 passengers on a German train, he sent a suicide video to ISIS.
In the clip, which the jihadist group’s news agency, Amaq, released on Tuesday, Riyad calls himself as a soldier of the caliphate while brandishing a knife.
"I want to perform a martyrdom operation in Germany," he proclaims. "I will slaughter you with this blade and will cut your throats with an axe."
Riyad’s monologue closely mirrors the script that ISIS has created for lone wolf attackers, after it called on its fans in the West to kill disbelievers “wherever you find them.”
Riyad, who was reportedly born in Afghanistan and was living with a foster family in Germany, urged fellow jihadis to “fight apostate armies in your lands” if they couldn’t make it to Syria.
“[ISIS sympathizers] will slaughter you in your own homes," Riyad warns in the video. "And they will build new bases on your lands."
The attack by Riyad comes days after a Tunisian immigrant—another apparent lone wolf attacker with questionable ties to ISIS—plowed into a crowd in the French city of Nice, killing 84 and injuring scores more.
