A man shouting “Allahu Akbar” has reportedly pushed a New York Times illustrator onto the tracks of a Manhattan subway.
The 30-year-old victim, whose identity was not revealed, was taken to hospital after suffering cuts and a fractured hip during the attack.
The incident, which occurred last Thursday during the morning rush hour, ended with the arrest of the 41-year-old attacker after he was subdued by a group of commuters.
Video obtained exclusively by the New York Post, shows a group of men surrounding the attacker. At one point the man is seen trying to escape before being knocked to the ground.
According to The Post, the attacker was shouting “Allahu akbar” and spitting on people attempting to help his first victim. Police are reportedly investigating for possible terror ties.
No doubt anyone who links this incident to Islam will quickly be branded a racist by the same folks who are presently blaming President Trump and Conservatives for a “lone gunman” going on a killing spree. Funny that.
