Faithful Kiwi Muslim, after playing religious music, pursues police screaming “Allahu Akbar”

This New Zealand faithful convert who is following in the footsteps of his prophet appears to have also had training from the FIANZ halal financed Aotearoa Maori Muslim Association, led by the Islamic State of New Zealand leader who is commonly known in NZ as Te Amorangi Kireka-Whaanga. Others from Avondale Mosque now live in Gore also.

Police say the man crashed his car into a patrol vehicle.

After giving up the pursuit, Ruairi Kern Taylor (24), of Gore, returned to the empty police car, took to it with the weapon – causing more than $30,000 of damage – and was later found wearing a police hat and jacket while yelling excerpts from the Koran.

The man appeared in the Dunedin District Court yesterday, where he pleaded guilty to two counts of assault with a weapon and one of intentional damage.

He was remanded in custody and Judge Kevin Phillips said Taylor was facing an inevitable prison term at sentencing in December.

The court heard the defendant quit his job in Tapanui on the afternoon of September 4 when the unusual behaviour began.

First, Taylor went to a hardware store in Gore and bought a tomahawk, then went to his home nearby to retrieve a sheathed dive knife which he strapped to his leg.

He set off north in his Subaru Forester and when he saw a police patrol car, he U-turned to follow it.

The officer turned into the local station and Taylor drove off.

Several hours later, Constable Steven Treloar had pulled a motorist over for a routine check on State Highway1 in Allanton.

When Taylor saw the blue and red lights in the distance, he turned up the “religious music” playing on his stereo and slammed his vehicle into the back of the stationary police car.

Const Treloar’s head snapped back and rebounded into the windscreen as he was shunted into the vehicle he had pulled over.

Within seconds, Taylor had smashed his window with the axe.

The officer called for back-up before climbing over the central console and escaping from the passenger door.

As Const Treloar ran off, Taylor pursued him “with the tomahawk raised about his head for approximately 40 metres before giving up”.

“Throughout the attack the defendant was yelling `Allahu Akbar’,” a police summary said.

Const Treloar was whisked away from the scene by a member of the public while Taylor returned to the abandoned police car.

He smashed both headlights and two side windows and made various holes and dents in the car, causing $31,7420 of damage.

The defendant, the court heard, then rummaged around in the car, donned police garments and began yelling religious passages.

He was arrested without incident, police said.

While Taylor told officers he was not a practising Muslim, the imam at Mataura Masjid Islamic Centre, Zamberi Mat Yunus, said the defendant had attended prayer two or three times.

He believed Taylor had recently moved from the North Island and was disappointed to hear about the violent incident.

After being arrested, the defendant told police he had wanted them to shoot him.

“He stated he wasn’t trying to injure the victim and that if he wanted to he could have,” the summary said.

Taylor had no previous convictions.

  1. Looks like a case of schizophrenia. Mosques tend to attract them. I remember a fellow who used to turn up wearing a pink turban, and begin his sentences with, “When I was a psychiatric nurse…” I was always tempted to interject, “Don’t you mean ‘patient’?

    1. No, I don’t think he is schizophrenic. It seems the only ones who are skitzo are the ones who say “Islam is a religion of peace”. When I have read it the koran appears clear and easy to understand, with the same singular themes running all the way through. Some followers will be faithful warriors following the prophets example, some will be supporters of the warriors aiding their mission, other’s will be as heretics as they deny the truth to save themselves. But they are ALL still muslim, because allah is ever forgiving, so it doesn’t really matter where you fit in the spectrum. According to the koran, those at the peace/denial end of the spectrum cannot say those at the faithful end are mentally ill, because as long as you say you follow, the koran implies that it does not matter how this belief plays out, because allah is ever forgiving and merciful.

      1. This primitive religious belief can also be found in Christianity. In the early days, many people delayed baptism until they were on their deathbed. This was so that they could commit any crime they liked, and then, just before they died, accept Jesus as Lord, be absolved of all their sins, and go squeaky-clean into heaven. Of course, it’s superstitious nonsense – like what you have described.

        One could debate the proposition that “Islam is a religion of peace” ad infinitum. Yes, the word “Islam” arises from the s-l-m root that also gives us “salaam” (peace). But there is provision in Islam for the conduct of war, as there has been In Christianity since the time of St Augustine. It was he who formalized the “just war theory” – the theory that, although war is bad, it is sometimes not the worst option.

        Of course, opinions will always differ on what Is “just” and what is “unjust”. And sometimes, what is perceived as “just” in one era is perceived as “unjust” in another. These matters can never be completely resolved.

  2. No! That ‘deathbead’ christianity is what we real Christians call Roman Catholiscm, an evil as bad as your own, & which if you google ‘who created Islam’ you will find the answer to why you share so many of your symbols with her. Abraham not Mohamad should be your true father in whom you will find the promise of the only true salvation which comes from the only true Christ, the only God who loved you enough to die for you, & did not need you or anyone to die for Him, because He is the greatest & only God! I saw this morning thousand of Muslims gathering to hear about Jesus, I pray one day soon you will join them!
