A man later identified as of Somali descent shouted “Allah Akbar” when he tossed a bomb into his truck on a central street in Melbourne, Australia, before swinging a knife against passersby and police. One of his victims died of stab wounds and two are in hospital, one in critical condition. The suspect was shot by police after confronting officers with his knife. He was taken into custody in critical condition and later died of his wounds. He was not named. Victoria Police Chief Commissioner Graham Ashton said they are not looking for anyone further at this stage and are treating the incident as a terror-related event.

    G-d Bless Australia. If this happened in London, the police would have delivered a petition to the terrorist asking, politely, that he stop stabbing people.

    This recent Muslim migrant from Somalia stabbed to death a well known Melbourne figure, Sisto Malaspina, who arrived in Melbourne in 1963 and built up the Pellegrini’s chain of restaurants. Just prior to the stabbing Sisto approached his killer, offering help, as his killer’s vehicle had caught fire. Unbeknown to Sisto, the fire was caused by his killer’s failed IED.
    This is the face of Evil.
