Muslim Refugee Targeted Women in Finland Stabbings

Merkel's gift to Europe keeps on going for the heart. With a blade in its hand and a cry of, Allah Akbar on its chapped lips. But, let's not jump to any fully accurate conclusions. 

Police in Finland say a knifeman who killed two people in the south-western city of Turku on Friday appeared to choose women as targets.

The suspect, arrested after being shot by police, is an 18-year-old Moroccan. Four other Moroccans have been held.

Geert Wilders would like a word.

The two women stabbed to death were both Finnish. Eight people were also injured, among them a Briton, a Swede and an Italian.

That's the new European diversity.

The ages of the casualties ranged from 15 to 67, police said, but gave no more details.

The fewer details, the more there is to hide.

They said the identity of the 18-year-old Moroccan was known, but they have not released it.

At a later press briefing, they said the suspect had arrived in Finland in 2016 and had "been part of the asylum process".

But remember, we should never turn away Muslim refugees. Even when they're stabbing women in the street. Also it's a "myth" that Muslim refugees are dangerous. Just ask Snopes and Politifact.

Crista Granroth, from the National Bureau of Investigation, said: "It seems that the suspect chose women as his targets, because the men who were wounded were injured when they tried to help, or prevent the attacks."

She said six of the eight wounded people were women.

Feminism and Islamism don't go together.

One eyewitness, Laura Laine, told Reuters: "First thing we heard was a young woman, screaming like crazy. I thought it's just kids having fun... but then people started to move around and I saw a man with a knife in his hand, stabbing a woman.
