An asylum seeker walked into a grocery store and right up to the first customer he saw, asking the man a simple question. However, as soon as the bystander answered, the asylum seeker immediately launched into a stabbing frenzy.
According to Metro, 32-year-old Samiulahaq Akbari has been arrested for a disturbingly violent and bloody attack. The Afghan asylum seeker had made his way to the UK, alleging that he was unsafe in his home country and needed to seek refuge in Britain. Unfortunately, it was actually he who endangered the lives of his generous hosts.
Due to a steep uprise in terrorist attacks, Britons must constantly be on their guard. In fact, despite the banning of knives in an effort to reduce criminal violence, Londoners have seen a sharp increase in knife attacks and stabbing sprees in popular public locations.
Sadly, civilians were caught unaware and completely defenseless when the asylum seeker decided to embark in the terrifying onslaught. Perhaps most disturbing was the violent migrant’s way of selecting his unassuming victims.
Akbari walked into a Tesco store in Thornton Heath, south London, before walking up to Nicholas Speight and tapping him on the shoulder. When Speight turned around, Akbari asked him which nationality he is. As soon as Speight replied that he was English by birth, the asylum seeker brandished a 10-inch kitchen knife and proceeded to thrust it in the direction of the man’s torso.
CCTV footage captured the entire incident, which also led to Akbari’s arrest. Miraculously, Speight managed to fight off the crazed stabber by wrestling with him and kicking him in the head. When he saw that his intended victim wouldn’t go down so easily, Akbari fled. Sadly, his other victims weren’t so lucky.
Just minutes after leaving Tesco, Akbari walked into a Kebabish restaurant and spotted John Hoy, “aggressively and repeatedly” demanding to know where the customer was from. When he too responded that he was English, Akbari lunged at him with a large, red-handled knife. Akbari again fled when Hoy fought back.
Akbari then made his way to the Plough on the Pond pub before confronting Barry Watkins and his friends with the same question. Although he wounded several of his victims, the men managed to fend off Akbari, forcing him to once again flee. It was only after the third attack that he was apprehended, prosecutor Heidi Stonecliffe confirmed.
Ms Stonecliffe said: “He and his friends replied that they were English, at which point the defendant started lunging at them with the knife. On that evening in January this year this defendant had set out deliberately to threaten, harm and kill members of the public by virtue of their nationality, or what Mr Akbari perceived to be their nationality – they were English.”
Akbari wasn’t detained until his own cousin turned him in. The family member reportedly called the authorities and warned them that his cousin is determined to slaughter white Britons and won’t stop until he fulfills this compulsion.
He told the operator: “He said he wants to kill the English people. I can see his eyes, he’s serious. He will do it. He’s trying to run and he will kill someone. Please come quickly.”
Outrageously, despite Akbari choosing his victims based on their English nationality and white ethnicity, he has not been charged with a hate crime. In fact, such an accusation hasn’t even been brought up in court.
As Akbari’s trial continues, it becomes clear that he has a special privilege not afforded to his native counterparts. Had the roles been reversed, an Englishman would surely be charged with a hate crime and considered a racist extremist.
