Italy: Man screaming “Allahu Akbar” stabs soldier, investigation has been launched to determine if attack was terror-related

The Western countries, especially the media and intelligentsia have been somewhat reluctant to accept the menace of Islamic terror that is being perpetrated on their societies.

An Italian soldier was stabbed in the throat with a pair of scissors on Tuesday by an attacker in front of Milan’s central train station and later shouted “Allahu Akbar”, reports NYPost.

According to the reports, a man identified as Mahamad Fathe, 23, fled after he attacked the Italian soldier near in Piazza Duca d’Aosta without any provocation. However, he was stopped by paramilitary Carabinieri police officers.

He shouted “Allahu Akbar!”, which meant “God is great!” as he was being arrested. The 34-year-old soldier was taken to a nearby hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, stated the report.

Interestingly, an investigation was launched to determine if the attack was terrorism-related. It seems that Italian authorities are still in a state of denial to admit that this barbaric incident is a classic case of Islamic terrorism being inflicted on non-believer societies.

The Western countries, especially the media and intelligentsia have been somewhat reluctant to accept the menace of Islamic terror that is being perpetrated on their societies. So much that recently, in one of the worst case of Islamic terrorism denial, the News York Times had blamed aeroplanes for the 9/11 terror attacks in one of the reports on the occasion of the 18th anniversary of the terror attacks.

It is no secret that the Islamic terror groups are now resorting to such ‘Lone wolf’ attacks in western societies, which they refer to as a ‘far-enemy’. The ‘Lone-wolf’ attacks have become the new modus operandi of the Islamic terrorists to inflame fear and devastate communities.

There has been an increase in such ‘Lone-wolf’ attacks across societies, especially in the West. Recently, in one such attack, an attacker had stabbed two people, killing one, in the central business district of Sydney, Australia. The attacker was seen shouting “Allahu Akbar” while he was attempting to attack people with a butcher knife. However, the Australian police did not treat it as a terror attack.

Last year in November, an attacker shouting “Allahu akbar” had stabbed a Belgian policeman several times in the neck in central Brussels. The attacker, who wielded two kitchen knives during the incident outside the city’s main police station, was then shot and wounded by two police officers. The attack, too, was not a ‘terror attack’ as per initial reports.
