    Mohammad coefficient? My guess is 100%.

    • That’s the low end estimate.

      • When axes are outlawed only outlaws will have axes.

    • Justin St.Denis

      Agreed. But I feel certain that German authorities will first look into possible links with militant German Lutherans, as per usual.

    • He’s Afghani, there are no churches left in Afghanistan, so he could be a disgruntled Christian.

      • Justin St.Denis

        With a 99.8% muslim population in a country of about 33 million, this would leave about 65,000 people who could be detained and interrogated harshly to see if he was a lone wolf attacker or had support in that community that wasn’t part of the Religion of Peace.

        He’s upset about Communion in the hand.

    • john700

      Since he did not kill anyone, this has nothing to do with Islam.

  • terrence22

    those Amish are at it again

    • B__2

      Based on the mainstream media’s previous reporting behaviour, I would have to say that police are looking closely at the Jainist and Quaker communities and seeking out the extremist elements these religions contain.

      I’m sure the police are also looking at axe wielding fanatics who refuse to give up their axes:
      More proof that we need to examine our current assault axe laws to see if they need to be tightened up to prevent future mass choppings.

      • 17 year old Afghani according to a report.

        • B__2

          Afghani Jainist or Quaker then?

          • Afghani Christian NRA member who supports Trump.

          • Justin St.Denis

            With Jainist leanings.

            We keep being told that all religions have their extremists, so all religions are supposed to be equally dangerous according to the modern atheist progressive.

            That’a right! We need to leave the umma and Islam out of the equation.

    Cops now saying 4 wounded, 14 in shock.

    • B__2

      I read one report which said the perpetrator was armed with an axe and a knife, so the knife covers the area inside the swing arc.

      • Works the same way – get inside the arc.

    I love all the diversity in their choice of weapons to kill us with.

    • Justin St.Denis

      I wonder if the perp is another of those 17-year-old “migrants” who turn out to be closer to 30.

      • B__2

        Well, he can probably count on the written declarations of his four children that he is indeed only 17 years of age.

    • 17 in European years or refugee years?

    • k1962

      He’s probably 25.

  • JoKeR

    I am waiting for the Obama speech saying this proves the necessity of banning guns, trucks, knives, axes…

    Or the speech about how this is only about an emotionally disturbed loan wold since the workplace violence speech can’t apply for this one.

    • J. C.

      Or trains. If people didn’t ride trains, this would have never happened…

  • Wonder how they’re going to spin it to blame the right?

    • Justin St.Denis

      Give them about 12 minutes or so. They will come up with something absurd. It’s their modus operandi now. They don’t even try for credibility anymore.

      The Germans should abandon Germany and give the entire country to Muzlums. That way Germans won’t get raped and beheaded. It is the German’s fault for being in Germany.

  • Since BillyHW doesn’t seem to be around, I’ll go ahead and blame all the Western women with their bare arms and ankles showing. Who can blame the boy?

  • It’s possible “Allahu Akbar” means “you missed my stop” in Pashto

    • k1962

      That one made me laugh out loud (which is weird considering all of this is so horrible).

  • Ron MacDonald

    He was a 17-year-old Afghan refugee.

    • Yup

      A Bavarian interior ministry spokesman has said “it is quite probable that this was an Islamist attack”, adding that the attacker had shouted “Allahu akbar” (God is greatest) as he stabbed people.

      • B__2

        “Allah Akbar” means “[My god] Allah is greater [than your god]”, which is why it is used as a threat, a boast, and a plea to Allah while muslims are involved with violent jihad. It’s a fine distinction, but an important one. It’s a claim that the muslim with the support of his god Allah is more powerful than his victim and the victim’s deity. It’s also a claim that if Allah was not on the side of the muslim and the immediate actions then the jihad would not be successful.

    I suspect this is Obama’s favourite song. I wonder what is Merkel’s?
    Hmmm… maybe there should be a BCF contest to see who does the best rewrite of this song?

    I don’t know what you people are getting all fussed about. This is the new normal. It will be integrated into the daily weather report: Mostly cloudy, maximum 20 degrees, some Jihad activity expected, occasional showers.

  • Fox says: A teenage Afghan refugee has been identified as the attacker in the
    German train slashing that injured four people, according to Interior
    Minister Joachim Herrmann, who added that authorities are looking into
    reports he yelled “an exclamation” during the rampage.

    • J. C.

      “an exclamation”

      That ‘exclamation’ wouldn’t happen to be ‘ALOHA SNACKBAR!!!’, would it…??? 😉

  • Afghan “refugee”.

    And apparently, Omar Mateen was “taunted” for his religion.

    Not taunted the way Christians are taunted. And by taunted, I mean killed.

  • Liberal Progressive

    That German police officer should be charged.

    Why that poor Afghan boy could have grown up to invent the digital clock and be the greatest of scientists in Islam!

  • “an Islamist attack” – Bavarian Interior Ministry

    Surely not? Anyone who is not a right-wing, bigoted, hate-filled Islamophobe will know that it was almost certainly a “workplace issue”; probably someone bought paperclips whose design offends muslims. I’m sure we can all sleep safely in our beds as the German authorities will very quickly track down that person and jail them for a hate crime.
