Pictured: The Japanese man killed & Irish student stabbed ‘by Egyptian asylum seeker’ in Ireland

The victim of a knife rampage in Ireland yesterday has been identified as a Japanese call centre worker.

Yosuke Sasaki, 24, died when an 18-year-old Egyptian asylum seeker allegedly stabbed him in the back in Dundalk, County Louth.

Police had been investigating whether or not the attack was terrorism-related, and a statement released today said the inquiry has now spread across the globe as detectives try to establish a motive.

    “Detectives try to establish a motive” … heaven save us from the stupidity and willful blindness of so many in the West.

      May the mayor of London feel the exact same thing from some random Muslim. Then he would feel the random violence that all major cities have. So the mayor says. Not. Only cities with Muslims experience this as much these days.

    That they’re searching for a motive is most reassuring!

    Myself…I haven’t a clue…

    Sasaki was stabbed in the back — I’m still waiting to a muslim to engage in a fair fight. They are cowards for allah.

      Diversity is our strength!! I sure hope little Justin agrees to that National Islamophobia Day.

    A Japanese man, Irish man, and a muslim walk into a bar. Which one goes all stabby? Sounds like an old joke.

  • Why was Mr. Sasaki killed? Because he was there and so was an Islamist.

      I thought it was because Donald Trump, who is literally Adolf Hitler, moved the US embassy to Jerusalem.

    • Alain

      Especially that Mr. Sasaki was an infidel.

    • Japanese shouldn’t have colonized Egypt like that.

      • Or colluded with the Zionist Military Complex to create squads of killer sharks.

  • Achmed

    How dare you label this terrorism when Holy Jihad is the will of Allah!

  • Bless his heart

    The Muslim jihadi fulfilled dictates of Sharia Law.

    The invasion to conquer Europe is called a hijrah. The prophet used hijrah to conquer Medina when Islam began. Mohamed made a peace treaty with the three tribes that lived in what is now called Medina. Two years into a ten year truce Mohamed ordered his Muslims to rise up and slaughter the infidel. They slaughtered two of the tribes and part of the third tribe, which fled. the race was on. Within 100 or so years Islam had conquered 2/3’s of Christian land and established the 5th largest land empire ever on this Earth. About 500 years into this conquest the First Crusade was called as some finally noticed. At least the part about the Holy Land and the murdering of pilgrims to the Holy land and of Christians living there.

    Dang, those pesky motives are just so gosh darn hard to establish.

    • Bless his heart

      Could it be that he had just emigrated (Jihad hijrah invaded) from an Amish land?

    Japan envies this diversity.

    In this case there is room for doubt as to motive.

    Educate me palaeotrash: just how is it that American aid to Israel provokes someone to murder a Japanese national? Ron Paul, take it away…

    Ireland has no capital sentences, and (like France) is willing to harbor Americans under indictment for murder absent an ironclad court decision which would preclude a capital sentence. Remains to be see if this fellow will get his just desert or get a Norwegian sentence.
