Muslim who killed eight & injured 15 with his vehicle while shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ pledged allegiance to ISIS

The man who allegedly ran down cyclists and pedestrians along 17 Manhattan blocks pledged his allegiance to ISIS before his attack, it has emerged.

Police sources say Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov, 29, entered a bicycle path at Houston Street at 3.05pm and drove downtown, knocking down victims before smashing into a school bus at Chambers Street, exiting and shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’.

He then waved a paintball gun in one hand and a pellet gun in the other, and was shot in the abdomen by a police officer. He has now come out of surgery and police are waiting for him to wake up before they question him.

Images of ISIS flags were found in his truck, as well as handwritten notes pledging his allegiance to the terrorist group, insiders told the New York Post.

As the horrific toll – currently at eight dead and at least 15 injured, including one child in critical condition – climbed up, details began to emerge about Saipov’s life.

    “His motives remain a mystery”

      Yes they can’t put a finger on it…

      It’s all Donald Trump’s fault!

    “…Saipov was very friendly, he said, and good with children…”

    Don’t you just love playing muslim roulette? An exciting new game brought to you by liberals everywhere!

      Same Bullshit as the “aspiring rapper” stuff that comes out when…

        …poor lost lamb, he was disoriented, being in NYC, bereft of his usual kind, supporting, tightly-knit and caring community back home in the Land of Uz….

        • Starlord

          I’ve heard his homeland jails radical preachers for life, won’t let men grow their beards like Mohamed’s, no face coverings…

          So he came to the US to practice hard core islamism.

          How many has Justin let in and Harper and the previous governments…

            Yes, any Uzbekistan resident who even thinks of jihad will find the authorities coming down on him like a ton of bricks.

      Fun, isn’t it? Personally, though, I find the lasting and ubiquitous societal changes – “little” things like women in face masks, segregated swimming hours, halal food shoved at us, the casual hatred of Jews, gays and women, repression of freedom of speech, unequal exercise of the law, that sort of thing – to be more upsetting, overall and long term.

      …old Uncle Adolf loved children and Alsatians…

    The reason we have muslim immigration is because our generation of white women vote to undermine their fathers, brothers, husbands and sons.

    • Starlord

      Wasn’t harper doing the same. Plus previous governments…

      • jayme

        Yup.

      • BillyHW

        Women voted in all those elections too and you’re still not getting it.

      Why do they hate men so much? Are they all lesson or what?

    He obviously isn’t to bright. He could have developed an escape plan to the Quebec border. The RCMP would have helped him across, given him a warm meal in a heated trailer, and sent him to a five star hotel. He then would have gotten ten million dollars and apology from Justin.

    Fox News is actually saying this was the deadliest terrorist attack in the USA since 9/11.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SThqs0mnYjc

    Virtually every show on Fox has repeated the same thing all day including Hannity.

    • k2

      Weird. So, for instance, the Florida gay nightclub shooting was workplace violence, or what?

      • lolwut? (Deplorable Hoser)

        No idea but they’ve been saying it all day on videos I’ve seen.

        Geraldo even said it’s the FIRST successful deadly attack in the USA since 9/11 on Hannity and not one person corrected him.

      • Raymond Hietapakka

        …I’d make a comment, but after this latest 30-day imposed Facebook ban, I’m definitely fearful about getting booted from the Digital World for incurable cynicism…Disqus might get bought out too…

    • Norman_In_New_York

      I thought Fox was saying that this was the deadliest New York City terrorist attack since 9/11.

      • lolwut? (Deplorable Hoser)

        Maybe sometimes, but a lot of the videos I’ve seen don’t single out NYC.

        Gerlado has pretended events like Orlando never happened on several occasions before this situation.

        I’m actually shocked he acknowledged 9/11 since most leftists
        pretend that never happened so they can claim lower numbers
        of deaths from terrorism.

  • Hard Little Machine

    Has mayor Mao Tse De Blasio made any comment yet?

    • Norman_In_New_York

      Yes, he mouthed the usual political bullshit. “New Yorkers are too strong to be terrorized. Go about your business without fear because we will protect you.” Or words to that effect. If you believe that, there’s a bridge connecting Manhattan and Brooklyn I’d like to sell you.

  • JohnfromToronto

    Just don’t forget. Nothing to do with Islam.

  • Etobicoke_Gladiator

    Just another case of SMC, folks. Spontaneous Muslim Combustion. Brace yourselves for the endless warnings about Islamophobia and backlash. *sigh*

  • ontario john

    In related news, the CBC is excited this morning, that the Liberal government will be announcing its long term immigration plan today. The highlight is that the Liberals will be bringing in three hundred thousand muslims a year. Praise Allah! Sharia law is coming!

  • ontario john

    Meanwhile little Justin announced that the Canadian government will match donations with charities and individual Canadians, that want to give money to muslim terrorists in Burma.

  • Sharkibark

    Meanwhile, in Vegas…. crickets.

  • Raymond Hietapakka

    It’s all Home Depot’s fault…they made him feel like a bum for having to borrow one of their trucks…then he snapped.

  • Linda1000

    Damn, if only that police officer had aimed a little higher and to the right if the perp was facing him.
