Ambush: Muslim Opens Fire On Philadelphia Police Officer “In The Name Of Islam”
He was a Muslim jihadist who was simply obeying the teachings of the Qur’an and sought to prove himself a high-grade believer in the eyes of Allah …
Update: Would-be executioner pledged allegiance to ISIS …
Qur’an Sura 9:5, “… slay the idolaters wherever you find them … lie in wait for them in every ambush …”
Qur’an Sura 4:95, “Not equal are those believers [Muslims] who sit at home and receive no hurt, and those who strive and fight in the cause of Allah with their goods and their persons. Allah hath granted a grade higher to those who strive and fight with their goods and persons than to those who sit at home …”
By Mark Berman, The Washington Post – “A police officer in Philadelphia was shot multiple times late Thursday by an attacker who told authorities he had pledged loyalty to the Islamic State.
The officer survived the ‘unprovoked’ shooting and returned fire, hitting the attacker, who survived and was taken into custody, Richard Ross Jr., the city’s new police commissioner, said at a news conference.
Ross said during a later news conference that the suspect confessed to the shooting and told detectives he did it ‘in the name of Islam.’
Police also said that the attacker told authorities he was pledging allegiance to the Islamic State, the militant group that has declared a caliphate in parts of Iraq and Syria.
The gun used in the shooting was a stolen police firearm, Ross said.
Officer Jesse Hartnett, 33, was driving through an intersection in West Philadelphia at about 11:40 p.m. Wednesday when a man began firing into the driver’s side window of the police car, Ross said.
‘When you look at the video … this is absolutely one of the scariest things I’ve ever seen,’ Ross said. ‘This guy tried to execute the police officer. The police officer had no idea he was coming.'” Read more.
