Targeting women again. She had never seen him before. The M-word is never mentioned in the article, but we have our guess…
In July 2016 devout Muslims of the Islamic State posted yet one more video asking Muslims everywhere to slaughter innocent people in any way they can to demonstrate their devotion to Islam, the Dawah (proselytizing ) and Sharia:
“So brothers, when you have any chance to kill one of those American or French infidels or any of those who support them, take it.
“You can smash his head with a stone, slaughter him, run him over by car, throw him off a roof, strangle him or even poison him.
“The important thing is not to hesitate or give up and let your goal be to kill this infidel or die trying.”
“So, give yourself to Allah and ask him for his help.
Onlookers horrified as man stabs elderly woman repeatedly in the face in apparently random attack

Security video screen grabs show the suspect shortly before the attack.
WINDSOR, Ont. — A man ambushed an elderly woman at random, stabbing her repeatedly in the face and leaving her screaming and bleeding on the sidewalk on a city street Wednesday morning.
Investigators said the vicious attack — on an 83-year-old woman — didn’t end with the initial blows to the face. When she fell to the ground, police said, the man climbed on top of her and continued stabbing her.
“She was screaming at the top of her lungs, like five or six times,” said Jennyfer Demers, who helped the victim. “When I came up I saw the guy running away, so I didn’t really get a clear picture of him.”
“I helped her up off the ground and she was bleeding from her face and her eye area. There was blood everywhere. She was clearly shaken up.”
The woman suffered serious but not life-threatening injuries.
Police said the 83-year-old woman was walking around 11:30 a.m. when a man snuck up behind her and stabbed her repeatedly in the face.
“He assaulted her multiple times, and then when she went to the ground he continued to assault her on the ground and then took off,” said Const. Andrew Drouillard.
After the attack, the suspect fled south, tossing his plaid jacket and a shirt as he ran. Police arrested a suspect later in the afternoon.
Police spent the afternoon scouring the Ottawa Street area for witnesses and surveillance cameras as they tried to piece together what happened.
One of the businesses they collected video from was Salon Brush. The attack happened outside the salon’s front doors. Demers was working there when it happened.
She said that after the woman fell down, the man climbed on top of her and stabbed her in the side. Then he suddenly ran off.
“It happened so quickly,” she said. “It was a shock.”
Demers and some other women in the salon rushed out to help the elderly woman.
“When I helped her up, the knife was sitting literally right there and there was blood on it,” said Demers. “She was still screaming.”
They brought her into the salon and called 911. Employees had to clean up large pools of blood from the front of the salon after paramedics took the woman away.
Kim Spirou, who owns the salon, was stunned when she watched the surveillance video.
“He crossed the street very deliberately, you could tell he was targeting her,” she said. “He caught up to her and stabbed her right in front of the salon.”
Police said the attacker didn’t seem to know his victim.
“That’s what is disturbing about this, it appears to be some random act of violence,” said Drouillard.
“This male approached this elderly female from behind when she was walking and just assaulted her and took off from the scene. We don’t know what the motive is at this time.”
