We rarely hear about Russia being culturally enriched by the religion of peace, but all that changed recently.
The NY Daily News reported on a story out of Moscow of a Muslim nanny who killed one of the children she was looking after, and expressed a desire to kill others.
And as you read the story, keep in mind that the police aren’t considering this a terror-related incident yet (and how ridiculous is that?).
A Russian nanny waved a child’s decapitated head around while shouting “I am a terrorist” outside a crowded Moscow subway station Monday, police said.
“I am a terrorist” seems like a bizarre thing to shout out while committing workplace violence, but lets continue.
The woman wearing a black burqa and hijab and later identified by authorities as Uzbekistan national Gyulchekhra Bobokulova got tackled to the ground and arrested at Oktyabrskoye Pole metro station, law enforcement sources told Russian news outlets cited by BBC.
“I am a terrorist, I want your death,” the woman could be heard in cellphone video yelling in Russian with the severed head in one hand in front of stunned onlookers. Her strongly accented rant included warnings about the end of the world, criticisms of democracy and cries of the Arabic phrase “Allahu Akbar (God is great)!”
Investigators believe the nanny killed a 3- or 4-year-old girl and set her family’s home on fire in northwestern Moscow. Firefighters discovered the child’s headless body in the burned-out apartment.
Police said the nanny pulled the child’s head out of her bag when an officer asked to see her documents. She said she had killed the child and threatened to blow herself up, according to cops.
“She was standing near the metro entrance and caught my attention because she was screaming ‘Allahu Akbar!'” Nikolskaya said. “I saw that she had a bloodied head in her arms, but I thought it was not real. People in the crowd said it was real.”
So let’s recap here. We have a woman declare that she’s a terrorist, carry out a punishment that Mohammad himself commonly did (beheading), and shouted “Allahu Akbar” while parading around with a severed head. It couldn’t be made any more clear that she was religiously motivated – and yet when she and organized groups of terrorists like ISIS do much worse we’re told by our liberal friends that it has nothing to do with Islam.
