Truly horrific scene, an innocent woman dead. More horrible still, the denial we are at war with sharia supremacism. However police “not ruling out any motivations at this early stage, whether they be criminal or political.”  Geez, I wonder what the motive could be? There’s a huge difference between “a French man” and “a French national.” Anyone care to place a bet on his name?

The Guardian:

A British woman has been killed in an alleged stabbing attack by a French man in front of up to 30 horrified onlookers at a backpackers hostel in Australia’s north-east.

The woman, 21, was found dead by Queensland police who were “confronted with a terrible scene” at the hostel in Home Hill – about 100km south of Townsville – on Tuesday night.

Queensland police said on Wednesday there were reports that the man, a French national aged 29, had used the phrase “Allahu Akbar” – God is greatest in Arabic – during the attack that was witnessed by up to 30 people. More
