US: Philadelphia mayor contradicts jihadi’s self-confessed motive

Suicidal levels of denial.

The terrorist claimed to be acting in the name of Islam, but the mayor knows better:

 The Muslim man who said Islam motivated him to shoot a police officer does not represent the teachings of Islam, Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney stated in a press conference on Friday afternoon, following an attempted execution by a man who had reportedly pledged to the Islamic State.

A 33-year-old Philadelphia policeman, Jesse Hartnett, was ambushed late Thursday when Edward Archer, a Muslim man, reportedly tried to execute him while he was sitting in his police vehicle. Images from the incident show a man dressed in Muslim attire firing off a reported 13 rounds at officer Hartnett. The police officer was hit three times, but did not suffer life threatening injuries and is expected to recover fully, reports said.

The mayor must have studied Islam well, because he went on to claim:

“In no way shape or form does anyone in this room believe that Islam or the teaching of Islam has anything to do with what you’ve seen on the screen,” said Mayor Kenney.

“That is abhorrent. It’s just terrible and it does not represent this religion [Islam] in any way shape or form or any of its teachings,” he added. “This is a criminal with a stolen gun who tried to kill one of our officers. It has nothing to do with being a Muslim or following the Islamic faith.”

Imam Kenney then shouted ‘allahu akbar’ and left the room.


  1. I think the goings on in Cologne, particularly the conspiracy between the police, the MSM and, who knows, the government may have finally opened the eyes of a lot of people in Europe and around the globe. I doubt you will find the government spokesmen parroting the “nothing to do with Islam” meme again as they know they will be ridiculed. The US Mayor is a few hours behind the times. Just watch out for the next phrase to be adopted by the political class to somehow try and fool the public.


  2. Pat Condell warns that this may well lead to tribal warfare similar to that in Europe in the late middle ages.
