Your article on Austria -- additional Jihadi incidents in that country

Reader comment on item: A Historic Step in Austria?

Submitted by Mike Kucherov (Germany), Apr 6, 2018 at 04:15

Dear Mr. Pipes,

Please don't forget about the devasting vehicular attack in the quaint Austrian town of Graz in June, 2015.

The perpetrator was almost certainly a Jihadi, but was portrayed as a "mentally ill native" (he was a Bosnian refugee with an Austrian passport).

Incredibly, this attack was not even widely reported in other parts of Europe -- even today, many people here in Germany are totally unware of it.

Also, at the same time as the incident outside the Iranian embassy, there was a stabbing attack in downtown vienna -- an Afghan randomly knifed a couple emerging from a restaurant with their daughter.
