SUDDEN JIHAD SYNDROME? An off-duty firefighter has died after being stabbed in the head “without provocation” several times at a Danforth café, Toronto police said. Dominic Parker, 45, died from his wounds in hospital after he was attacked by Nabil Hurhuy, 23. There is a mosque very close to this cafe.
National Post (h/t Mel) Nabil Hurhuy, 23, was arrested in Scarborough Saturday afternoon and charged with first-degree murder, two counts of carrying a concealed weapon and one count of carrying a dangerous weapon.
Parker decided to stop by Rotana Café first, where he knows the owner. It was while sitting on a couch sipping tea that Mr. Parker was stabbed repeatedly in the head by a stranger with a Muslim-sounding name. “Police are calling it a completely random act of violence,” Mr. Michaels said. (CRAP! It’s the jihad, stupid)
It’s unclear how many times Mr. Parker was stabbed but his most serious injury was a knife wound that went through the back of his head and through his brain, Mr. Michaels said.
Mr. Parker was taken to St. Michael’s Hospital around 2 a.m., and died from severe head wounds shortly after midnight Sunday. Police have charged a 23-year-old man with first-degree murder.
“The family is completely devastated to have their husband and father completely ripped out of their lives so violently and so fast,” said Jay Michaels, the media representative of Mr. Parker’s family. Mr. Parker had been married for 23 years to his high school sweetheart and has two daughters, 18 and 19, both of whom are in their first year at Concordia University in Montreal.
