A Sydney Muslim is trapped under a milkcreate after running away from the scene of a stabbing yelling Allah Akbar.
Quran (2:216) – “Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not.
Note: Muslims always declare mental illness so they get transferred to mental health facilities shared with women, free sex and to be treated like kings.

A knife-wielding man ‘with terrorist ideologies’ killed one person and attempted to stab several others in a central Sydney rampage today before being chased and pinned down by members of the public, including Britons.
Police say a 21-year-old Sydney man with a history of mental illness – named as Mert Nay – shouted Allahu Akbar (God is great) during the attack. He was found to have a thumb drive containing details of mass-casualty white-supremacist attacks in the United States and New Zealand.
Nay, who is understood to be a recent convert to Islam, is believed to have killed a sex worker in a residential unit before going on the rampage across the city’s business district.
Another woman was rushed to hospital after being stabbed in the back while the attacker also tried to knife several others near a busy intersection in Australia’s largest city, say police. Dramatic footage shows the man, holding a large knife, jumping on top of a car while screaming ‘shoot me in the head’.
Brave witnesses, including Britons Lee Cuthbert, Paul O’Shaughnessy and Luke O’Shaughnessy, all from Manchester, tackled the man and pinned his head down with a milk crate until police arrived to make the arrest. Earlier, a businessman was seen fighting off the suspect armed with a chair. Officials later hailed them as heroes.
Although the incident is not being treated as terror-related, the knifeman was described by police as a ‘lone actor’ who may have some terrorist ideologies. Officers are investigating whether he escaped from a mental institution.

A woman was pictured being taken by ambulance from a hotel after the knife rampage today. A spokesman for the city’s St Vincent hospital said a 41-year-old woman injured in Nay’s alleged attack was in a stable condition
Police said that while the suspect had no known links to terror groups, he did have a thumb drive with details of mass-casualty white-supremacist attacks in the US and New Zealand.
NSW commissioner Mick Fuller said: ‘Information was found on him that would suggest he had some ideologies related to terrorism… but he has no apparent links to other terrorist organisations.’
Medication was also found close to the alleged attacker, identified as a drug used to combat anti-anxiety called antinex, Channel Seven reported.

It is believed the woman who died in the attack was a sex worker and was known to Ney.
NSW Police said the woman’s body was found in a residential unit at 3.15pm, with a witness saying it was found on the building’s fourth floor.
They said authorities had little doubt the death of the woman in the hotel and the stabbing spree on the street were linked.
Officers on Tuesday evening were searching the alleged attacker’s home in Blacktown.
Meanwhile, a spokesman for the city’s St Vincent hospital said the 41-year-old woman injured in Nay’s alleged rampage was in a stable condition.
Earlier, three British colleagues described how they raced from their fourth-floor office to the street.
‘We’ve opened the window and seen the guy wielding a knife and jumping on the bonnet of a nearby car,’ said Paul O’Shaughnessy, 37, a former midfielder with Bury between 1999 and 2004.
Convinced it was a terrorist attack, his brother Luke – a champion Muay Thai boxer – led the chase.
‘We all just ran down the building and chased him down the street,’ said Roberts. ‘Everyone was kind of panicking, no one really knew what was happening,’ he said. ‘Not your normal Tuesday afternoon.’
Cuthbert said Luke, with the help of another man, ‘managed to get him down on to the floor and pin him down’ with chairs and a plastic crate before police arrived.
‘We’re a very, very close team, we’re a start-up recruitment company’ he added. ‘We’re all brothers really, so when you see brothers running, your natural instinct is to go and follow.’
Police spokesman superintendent Gavin Wood hailed the action of the bystanders.
