Knifeman shouting ‘Allah is great but this has nothing to do with Islam’ holds blade to woman’s neck in Rome

A tourist was forced to her knees at knifepoint at Rome’s Colosseum in a terrifying attack that recalled an ISIS-style execution.

Hundreds of horrified visitors to the Italian landmark looked on as the attacker held a kitchen knife to the neck of a 26-year-old woman and yelled ‘Allah is great’ and ‘It is God that sends me’.

The man held Chiara Frisco hostage for several minutes as he yelled religious fanaticism at the crowd with police powerless to act.

One witness said: ‘It seemed like a scene from ISIS.

    And no one did anything they all stood around using their cell phones to fill it.
    But don’t worry the pope says it had nothing to do with Islam.

      Exactly what I was going to say. Stupid sheep.

    • lolwut?

      I can’t find a single video or photo of it.

    In the old days they would have crucified a few hundred swarthies to keep the rest in line.

      That’s why they were called the “good old days”.

        LOL!!!!!

    hy didn’t the police just shoot him in the head? Don’t they have snipers in the Italian police? I guess they should take lessons form the US police who have been successfully shooting people with no problems.

      It seems as though they had guns, but did not know how to use them.

      • Exile1981

        They have guns but they don’t carry ammo, they have to call in that they need it and then wait for it to be delivered after a committee reviews the incident to decide if ammo is warranted or not in that case.

          Sounds about right…..

  • dukestreet

    They should do exactly what the Brits did to the people who burned wives at their husbands funerals. If I recall correctly, the officer in charge said that if they wishes to honour the tradition of burning wives,that was fine. The British would then carry out their tradition for dealing with people who murder and summarily hang them right there. The whole tradition was quickly ended after a few of the culprits were hung.

    The lieft has a lot to answer for.

    Italian courage stays with you like smoke on a hot summer’s day.

    • Blacksmith

      Yeah WTF is that? Oh Italy never mind.

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        Has Itally always been screwed up, or is this just late 19th and 20th (and now 21st) century thing?

    Another day with imported diversity…

    Keep in mind that the all-welcoming pope supports an open-borders Europe.

    To be fair, united church members shout that as well.(Except in their atheist congregations).

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      Do any united church members have that much belief in anything theologically Christian to shout it?

      • ontario john

        Yelling Praise Allah is just the united church showing its solidarity with islam. The church would not lower itself to anything Christian in nature.

    • Shebel

      Shout what ?

  • Blacksmith

    To bad these police were not armed and trained to respond to situations like this. If they were we would be reading about a taxpayer relief shot.

  • Shebel

    Why are people upset ? He was just being a good Muslim.

    We expect nothing more or nothing less.
