Police detained a 21-year old man in Vienna after he deliberately tried to run over pedestrians while shouting “Allahu Akbar” out of his car. No one has been injured and officials are now investigating the motivation behind the man’s behavior.

The incident happened at around 11:00am local time in the district of Favoriten on Thursday.

“He aimed and drove directly at the passers-by,” Vienna police spokesperson Thomas Keiblinger said in an interview with Radio Wien as cited by national public proadcaster

“According to the statements of the eyewitnesses the 21-year-old shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’ out of the opened window of his car,” Keiblinger added.

No one was injured in the attack, however one of the pedestrians had to jump from the crossing to save his life, WIEN.ORF says, citing eyewitnesses.

According to the Austrian media the driver is Vienna resident with a Turkish background. The man was detained by law enforcement officials shortly after the incident.

Authorities are now investigating whether the man might have had religious or political motives. According to police the 21-year-old has not yet made any statements.

On Monday a court in Austria’s second-largest city, Graz, sentenced a 27-year-old going only by the name Alen R. to life imprisonment after a run-over attack. The man in question drove his SUV through central Graz on June 20, 2015, leaving his car at certain points to attack pedestrians on the streets with a knife.

Three people died and over 30 were injured as a result. Alen R. Was sentenced to be sent to a facility for mentally unstable criminals.

However the court ruling was invalidated as prosecutors failed to deliver their statement. The man’s lawyer will file an appeal either way.

  1. He has mental issues that caused him to go crazy. Mental isssues caused by Islam and all that banging of his head on the ground many times a day to pray.

    • @foxmulder. Maybe the problem comes from stickin’ his az.end up in the air 5 times a day. Gravity made all the zhit run downhill–TO HIS HEAD!!!

  2. Does no one remember some months ago the mullas were preaching that jihadis should use vehicles as weapons. Must be hundreds of incidents of islamics doing so.

  3. probably another upset amish boy

  4. Before the muslim immigrants came to Europe there was no terrorism. So, why are they here? Has there ever been a European country that benefited by opening it’s borders to non-Europeans? If so, name it.

     Do they make Europe a safer place to live? Have they made Europe great? Are they good for tourism? Do they bring anything positive to Europe? Do they respect the citizens of Europe and the customs? Do they support themselves without burdening the tax payers? Do they burden the judicial system due to high crime rates? Do they love Europe or what they can get from her?

    Why don’t muslim “asylum seekers” go to Qatar, Kuwait, United Arab Emirates , Oman, Saudi Arabia or any of the other rich muslim countries? These are Islamic countries therefore more suitable for them.

    Our governments have endangered all of us for generations to come. My children and my children’s children will be forced to live in a police state to keep the muslims in line until the day their(the muslims) numbers have grown large enough to make us refugees from our own country.

    The muslims know they can’t invade and conquer Europe with military might so they come in the disguise of poor, downtrodden, abused people whose lives and well being hinge on asylum from the people for which they hate and want to destroy.

    They aren’t trying to escape the life they left behind, they’re spreading it as they  conquer Europe with terrorism and undermining it’s civilizations. This is the classic Trojan horse(muslims running from islam, think about it), Europe must look at the bigger picture. The muslims are the oppressors, the abusers, they have been this way for the past 1400 years, they don’t plan on changing now.

    If a European country don’t let the hoards flood their land they are called “far right” “racist” “Nazis” and “xenophobic”.  If they let them in, their country, their lives, their descendants lives will be torn apart. Which one is easier to live with? Which one does the most damage? Which choice is beneficial to the European country and it’s people?

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
