From the Telegraph and Argus, h/t jc
A teenager who stabbed and slashed a passer-by in a racially motivated attack has been locked up for five years.
Amir Rehman, 18, shouted racial abuse as 51-year-old Ronald O’Connor walked to a shop for a loaf of bread, near the gates of Lister Park, Manning-ham, last December. Leeds Crown Court was told Rehman shouted out: “Manningham belongs to Muslims. We don’t want whites. We rule Bradford. We are going to get you out.”
Mr O’Connor had surgery at Bradford Royal Infirmary for a deep laceration to his palm. He also suffered lacerations to his fingers and two incisions to his upper arm with apparent nerve damage.
Mr Gioserano said Rehman attended Bradford Crown Court for a preliminary hearing of the case in March, but went straight from court to Pudsey, with two other men, Amar Farooq and Tanveer Hussain, where, later in the day, they committed a series of robberies on children on their way home from school. During the street muggings some of the youngsters were threatened with being stabbed, though no knife was seen.
The judge, Recorder David Bradshaw, told Rehman he had committed an unprovoked attack on an innocent man causing “horrendous” injuries. He said: “I am satisfied it was accompanied by racial abuse and seemed to have a racial motive.”
My father-in-law was born in Manningham by the family left when he was a baby. I take exception at the suggestion that my husband and daughter would not be welcome at a place of significance in our family history.

You know what gets me about this? This passage: "Rehman attended Bradford Crown Court for a preliminary hearing of the case in March, but went straight from court to Pudsey, **with two other men, Amar Farooq and Tanveer Hussain, where, later in the day, they committed a series of robberies on children on their way home from school**".
Such bravery! Such a display of Mohammedan power! NOT. Three - *three* men 18 years and older,.*preying upon schoolchildren*, threatening those children with knives. Petty, sneaking, vile, contemptible, cowardly, disgusting, creepy thugs. They should have been roundly booed by angry infidels all the way through their trials (I assume the three Mohammedan thugs have been tried for these attacks on schoolchildren, as well as their ringleader's being sentenced for the knifing of Mr O'Connor). Let them know loud and clear that we of the free West don't admire swaggering, cowardly bullies who prey upon helpless children; we *despise* them and spit upon them as the lowest of the low.
They don't belong in England. Out with them! Exile forever to dar al Islam.
