These bloody French.
They should just been banned from Australia altogether, if you ask me.
The typical Frenchman is obsessed with killing people for the French god “Le Allah.”
A bloody menace, mate.
A French man allegedly cried “Allahu Akbar” during a stabbing attack that left a 21-year-old British woman dead in front of up to 30 onlookers at a backpackers hostel in Australia’s north-east.
The 29-year-old suspect allegedly repeated the phrase – which means God is greatest in Arabic – when arrested by Queensland police who were “confronted with a terrible scene” at the hostel in Home Hill – about 100km south of Townsville – on Tuesday night.
Steve Gollschewski, a deputy police commissioner, said the alleged offender’s comments “may be construed as being of an extremist nature” and investigators were working with Australian federal police to establish his motives.
But police were “not ruling out any motivations at this early stage, whether they be criminal or political”.
Investigators would also consider whether “mental health or drug misuse” issues were a factor in the attack alongside any “indication of an extremist slant or he was radicalised”, Gollschewski said at a press conference in Brisbane.
Yeah, we do have a global mental health crisis going on which has resulted in dozens of people being randomly murdered for Allah, but I don’t think we should let this Frenchman off that easily.
“This is not about race or religion, it is about individual criminal behaviour,” he said.
Police were not searching for anyone else and there was “no ongoing threat to the community”, he said.
The alleged attack also left a British man, 30, in a critical condition with stabbing wounds. A local man, 47, who intervened suffered non life-threatening injuries and a dog at the hostel was fatally wounded.
30 people watched at a youth hostel and the only guy who intervened was 47-years-old?

Ah well, I supposed they were terrified, these youths. What with his garlic breath, the splashes of red wine on his striped shirt…
…the wild Frenchman on the loose makes for a scene like something out of a slasher film, even before they start with the slashing.
The French man is in Townsville hospital after being injured. He has been taken into police custody, with charges yet to be laid.
He was not being held under federal anti-terrorist laws but state criminal laws, with investigators were considering charges including murder and attempted murder, Gollschewski said.
The man had been on Australia on a temporary visa since March and appeared to have “no local connections”, the deputy police commissioner said. He was not previously known to police.
Sharon Cowden, an Australian federal police commander, said at the same press conference that while the alleged killer had no known links to extremist groups, investigators would be “speaking to all appropriate international law enforcement” to examine this.
“Any line of inquiry that takes us to international law enforcement we will follow,” she said.
Cowden condemned the attack as a “senseless act of violence”.
Earlier on Wednesday, Superintendent Ray Rohweder told reporters in Townsville that investigators were “still trying to piece together what has happened – we don’t have a motive yet”.
…Bill Byrne, the Queensland minister for police, fire and emergency services, described the incident as “tragic and disturbing”.
“Right now our thoughts are with the victims’ family and friends and the close knit community of Home Hill,” said Byrne.
Byrne said he remained in contact with the police commissioner and expected more details as the investigation progressed.
“It is important that we allow police to get on with the job of conducting their investigations and more information will be made publicly available once it is known.”
He also urged the public to remember “this is not about race or religion”, but about criminal behaviour.
Typical French apologist.
These French can get away with anything, and people will just keep claiming “oh no, him being French has nothing to do with it, it’s just another random coincidence.”
How many people have to die at the hands of the French for us to recognize the global French threat?
