Amor Ftouhi has an allegedly deep-rooted hatred for America.
And on Wednesday, that rage exploded in an airport in Flint, Mich., when the Montreal father of three stabbed a police officer in the neck with a combat knife.
The 50-year-old reportedly shouted “Allahu akbar,” the Arabic phrase for “God is great,” before striking the officer.
FBI Special Agent David Gelios said that the feds believe Ftouhi was a “lone wolf” and not part of a larger conspiracy. He added the sometime truck driver has been “cooperative.”
“We interviewed the subject for a good period of time … Suffice to say, he has a hatred for the United States and a variety of other things that motivated him to come to the airport … to commit this act of violence,” Gelios told the Detroit News.
