Christian Woman In Austria Reads The Bible To Muslim People, One Muslim Man Gets So Enraged That He Stabs Her With A Knife

By Theodore Shoebat

A Christian woman in Austria was reading a Bible to Muslim migrants, when one Muslim man got so enraged that he stabbed her with a knife, according to one Austrian report. 

She arrived with her husband from the nearby principality of Timelkam to read to refugees from the Bible, the National Police Directorate Upper Austria reported on Thursday. She was reading from the Scriptures in a kitchen where the migrants could listen to her.

22- year-old Afghan Muslim stepped into the kitchen and stabbed the woman with the knife on her  upper body. The 50- year-old woman was saved by the thickness of her thick winter coat. But she fell and hurt herself in the left ear.

In an initial survey, the attacker stated, according to the police, that he had “personal problems”. He had never seen the woman before. He was sent to the Wels Prison.

    That brave woman may have had divine protection during the attack also.

    • Higlac

      It would have been even better had he had absolutely ZERO effect while trying to stab her, and that she wouldn’t have been hurt in the slightest!!!

      It’s so obvious that God Is Making Himself as easy to deny as possible – he truly wants and insists that we must come to Him of our own free will!!

      As to that wretch: as an attempted-murderer, he deserves the death penalty…

      • AnthonyM

        His ‘personal problems’ includes belief in Islam.

        • Grandmere

          SNAP!

      • Grace Ziem

        We are all fortunate Christ doesn’t give us what we deserve! This guy probably never heard the gospel and has been told horrible things about it.
        I don’t think you REALLY understand what Muslims are taught and NO other ideas allowed! It is amazing millions are converting.
        Higlac, BECOME PART OF THEIR SOLUTION instead of just sitting in perpetual judgement!
        Look for ways to share the Gospel with them and pray for God to show you ways. He will help you become part of the solution!

        • Grandmere

          Please share with us some of your favorite techniques in ministering to them. Perhaps a story about your latest experience of witnessing to them. We could all use such useful instruction.

          • Higlac

            BRAVISSIMA, dear Grandmère (and Happy New Year to you, while we’re at it)!!!! FAR TOO MANY of these “Pollyanna” types talk but don’t at heart really act…

          • Grandmere

            Back to you dear. Please shoot me an e-mail. I lost a lot of my contacts a while back. PS: The Havarti is working. I was beginning to wonder.

          • susan

            I hope Grace shares a personal story or two with us. Some heart warming news would feel good this wintry night.

          • Grandmere

            She went silent. I wonder why????????????????????????????

          • susan

            Maybe she needed to return a last minute Christmas gift? Or works nights? We can remind her later I guess…

          • Grace Ziem

            I find that praying for them helps: God opens my heart to see ways I can be of help and God also helps me judge less, because it is easy to become judgemental. I have been able to help them in different ways, direct contributions, helping Christians that work in Muslim countries, sharing needs on the internet.
            Do you need other ideas? It begins with a change in our heart.

  • Wilma Mills

    Yes, the attacker has personal problems!!! He needs to recieve Jesus as his personal saviour.

    • Higlac

      Yes, indeed he needs to receive Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ for himself; however, he also needs to face up for everything he’s guilty of!!!! This is attempted MURDER: he can’t be let off that easily, especially as an invader of another country!!!! For such as him, death is the only acceptable solution.

      • Wilma Mills

        You’re right, but the death penalty is usually not given for attempted murder. Maybe if she visited him while in jail, forgive him, and win him to Christ. That would be wonderful, and worth her trauma, but we never know who are the lost sheep.

        • Higlac

          Remember that it’s not just attempted murder of which he’s guilty: on his record at the barest minimum is invading non-Moslem countries (not only Austria but also whichever other countries through which he transited). I’ve no doubt there’s enough more – and it’s when all these things are taken into account that the death penalty becomes applicable.

          • Wilma Mills

            But do they even have the death penalty in Europe for anything anymore?

          • Higlac

            Alas, they don’t. That’s true. However, push the Europeans enough and eventually they will bring it back. As it is, movements like PEGIDA, Génération Identitaire, EDL and the rest will (especially with the Nazis trying to hijack these movements – God Almighty FORBID!!!) will end up using such things as death sooner rather than later.

          • Grace Ziem

            Higlac, Wilma is showing compassion for the salvation of the attacker, and it sounds like you aren’t happy with that.. I don’t understand..Where is your concern for the souls of others, which Christ commands us to have?

            How do we get the end/Christ’s kingdom to come? Matt 24:14 “And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come” .If we all share the gospel, Christ can come sooner; there is no other reason for Him to delay, if you read His Word carefully..

          • Higlac

            It’s with your second paragraph where you, Ms. Ziem, fall into GRIEVOUS ERROR!!! We have categorically ZERO – repeat, ZERO – power to influence when Christ’s Kingdom will come via His Second Coming. TO THE CONTRARY!!!! [Only the Father Knows…]

            All too often people are deceived into thinking that because somebody in the prison system has supposedly found Christ, he should be spared at least part of the earthly penalty he has incurred for his crimes. THIS is what I’m angry about (especially given if recidivism is the result, which proves a FALSE conversion).

            When somebody’s soul is genuinely saved, nobody would or will EVER rejoice more than I. However, knowing how desperately EVIL this earth is (and that includes myself!!!!), I know better than to be in a perpetually-ready-to-rejoice, “Pollyanna” kind of attitude. It’s very sad and a heavy burden upon me, who wants to be as positive as anybody else; however, I’ve lived (and still am living) through enough evil (though others have undergone more beyond all doubt)…

          • RodK1975

            Right-of-way Higs, justice shouldn’t be subverted… it is the responsibility of government to carry out justice, a person’s spiritual status is just that, a personal matter for themselves…

          • Kamau41

            AMEN to that big time….

          • Grace Ziem

            What does Matt 24:14 mean to you, Higlac?

          • Higlac

            Oh yes, the verse about that before the end-times arrive, the Gospel will have been preached to all the nations. Yes, that’s the first of the THREE signs about Christ’s Second Coming being upon our literal doorstep – the second is the Great Falling-Away from the faith, and the third is the appearance of THE Antichrist, the Son of Perdition. These are the three signs accepted by universal Christianity about how things stand relative to Christ’s Return.

            The first one has pretty well been fulfilled: barring perhaps a few extra-remote Amerindian tribes in South America plus maybe Africa, all the nations HAVE heard the Gospel, so this first sign has been satisfied.

            The second one – the Great Falling-Away of people from the Christian faith – has been already happening in Europe since around 1750 and has become so severe that less than 10% of the population nowadays attends church or seriously believes in God (being “spiritual” or “New-Age” obviously are NOT Christian!!!!). We also can’t ignore the tremendous damage Marxism did to Russia and the rest of Eastern Europe; and serious persecution of Christians is becoming a reality both in Western Europe (as well as Bjélarusj) and North America.

            The same situation is rapidly becoming the case in North America, Australia (thank goodness that the Anglican Diocese of Sydney has been solidly-Christian up to now thanks to the Jensen brothers, with the Catholics also having a similar shining light in Cardinal Pell – that city has been a fine exception in sharp contrast to the rest of that country) and New Zealand. Parts of Africa and Latin America are also spiralling into decline, though they’re not quite as bad as those of us in the “First World”

            The third – the appearance of THE Antichrist – yet has to be positively established. That he’s already here is pretty sure: not a few people including the late Cardinal-Archbishop of Bologna, Giacomo Biffi, have convincingly said as much.

            There are several real candidates for that most ignominious of rôles. Among my suspects, if I didn’t know better thanks to Messrs. Walid and Theodore Shoebat, would be Obama, Trudeau, Merkel, Francis {and this one could still be the False Prophet of these times like Mohammed was and still is overall} and – for sure – Erdoğan. Given what we here have learned, so far things seem to be pointing to that last-named: he truly is somebody to keep one’s eyes upon. [Personally, I believe that we have (very) roughly 33 years before Christ Returns on account of what weapons and pollution – as well as various mental burdens – we have, the attitudes of sinful Men (with enough wishing to kill off over 95% of all Mankind on this planet), the increasing incidents of wars (many of which are being waged behind guerilla proxies instead of a nation vs. nation basis as used to be the case) and near-wars (e.g., India vs. Pakistan, India vs. China).]

            There, hopefully this will answer you to your satisfaction. [Incidentally, it should be mentioned that the name of a mutual colleague of ours, “Grandmère”, means “grandmother” in French.]

          • Julie LaBrecque

            Do you obey Christ’s church?

          • Grandmere

            A little Wilma goes a long way, Grace. I had to block her a long time ago. If you encourage her, she will hijack the conversation.

          • Grace Ziem

            I really don’t follow; Wilma is obeying Christ. He commands us to share the gospel: Matt 28:19 “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, We can do this personally, by internet, prayer and donations. I hope you don’t mean you have shut out this message of Christ.

            Obedience is not optional: Matt 16:24 “If anyone wants to follow me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.” If you think Christ is not serious about obedience, read Matt 7: 20-46. I do wish you a Happy New Year!!

          • Grandmere

            You don’t know anything about me, woman! I perceive in you a judgmental spirit, harping on the people here with a handful of verses you keep handy. Until YOU provide a direct testimony of your personal involvement in the conversion of a Muslim I will stay right on your tail.

          • Grace Ziem

            I just got a letter yesterday from a former Muslim I helped bring to Christ. I am not trying to judge you, Grand, if you feel convicted, PLEASE ask yourself if it is the Holy Spirit!

          • Grandmere

            That’s wonderful. Why though do you criticize people who, like you, give money to ministry but still believe in discretion in personal interaction and self defense in the face of imminent threat to life and limb?

          • Grace Ziem

            Grand, you seem to feel convicted. This isn’t what I have said, this seems like scripture and your conscience. Do you want to fight those? God may be trying to reach you, sir.

          • Grandmere

            Google my name before you call me “sir” again. I have a very strong conviction…that you are a whining, accusing troublemaker who is trying to sow discord among the brethren.

          • Grace Ziem

            I apologize for my lack of French, congrats!

            No, I do NOT want discord. I am concerned about the amount of hate here. These are very tough times, and we need to be kind to each other. But Christ wants us to follow Him closely during the tough times, because it is easy to resort to hate of people who have no access to Christ. I find that prayer and study of God’s Word helps keep love in charge. Blessings!

          • Grandmere

            I have been here for years and I have never seen anyone who was so ready to accuse anyone who disagrees with them of being filled with hate. These folks are Christians, Grace and you are literally foaming at the mouth calling them haters.You say you have grown children. So do I and grandchildren as well. I know that my son would resist, with extreme prejudice if necessary, anybody trying to harm his wife and children. Does that make him a hate filled man? No. It means he is a love filled man. Hopefully we can put this subject to bed because we are all going in circles and getting nowhere.

  • “I don’t care what religion you are”

    Did we by any chance ask you if you cared or did not care about what religion we are?

    “but why would you have complete strangers in your kitchen!!”

    Ask them.

    “Secondly ” people are being prosecuted; send your money now to help save them”. I don’t believe that money is going into the right hands”

    Okay.

    “somebody is getting rich off of this.”

    Yes we are We actually have to use a shovel to pile all the money in the pickup truck when we go to the bank.

    You don’t happen to have an extra shovel by any chance do you?

    “Thirdly, proof read your article.”

    O great.

    “There is a plethora of grammar mistakes.”

    Actually a plethora is an understatement. I guess having grammar problems proves beyond shadow of doubt we are frauds right?

    “A native speaker did not write this article ( no offense).”

    Yes we are infiltrators. Mossad spies actually.

    • Wilma Mills

      😉

    • Grandmere

      Walid, I sent you a check the other day. Should I send some more now or wait until you have more room in the vault?

      • David W

        I will send lots of money along with a bulldozer to collect it all.

        The grasshoppers always show up to condemn the victims and level charges of fraud and deceit, then accuse the author of hatred, judgementalism and aggression. Makes sense to me….

        • Thanks David. They think we get truckloads of money when all these send is truckloads of nothing more than live grasshoppers.

          But it makes no difference, we grind these anyway and make falafel patties. These folks over here cannot tell the difference.

  • Flame blue

    The article was written in German or Austrian, then translated into English, so it’s not a perfect translation, so what? I read a different article about it, and the woman had been invited ( did not impose) by some Christians in the camp to read scriptures from the Bible which she did as the few Christians sat in the kitchen. Maybe, they were not Christians but Muslims setting her up for death! Perhaps, she realised it was a strange matter because she did not take her coat off, either she was quite cold or not relaxed and not intending to stay long. The article l read stated that the refugee muslim stabbed her several times through her winter coat, but did no serious damage because the coat was thick. Obviously, he didn’t have a long blade!

  • Grandmere

    You are right. We are getting rich. Except our treasure is very secure in a place where thieves can’t break in. And you can take that to the bank.

    • Kamau41

      There is grand with the mouse trap. You have snapped her to pieces.

  • Grandmere

    People are certainly being prosecuted under the blasphemy laws. Prosecuted, as in being arrested, hauled into court, convicted in sham trials and imprisoned or executed. You don’t need to worry about a knife on a woman’s upper body but you will have to answer for trying to stab Walid in the back.

    • Grand grand, have her stab away. This way I finally rest from this complaining in this Sinai of a desert.

      • Grandmere

        Not yet, mon cher. Not yet.

      • Grace Ziem

        I know just how you feel Walid, makes it easier to be bold all the time!

  • You’re right, we are an aggressive bunch, unlike you of course who warned “I don’t believe that money is going into the right hands; somebody is getting rich off of this.”

    And when we replied agreeing with you you got angry.

    But had you just looked up Rescue Christians:

    http://rescuechristians.org

    You can peruse the hundreds upon hundreds of families Rescue Christians rescued from slavery. No one else is doing this except these aggressive bunch you are yelling at.

    You see Sandy, I am going to teach you a little lesson. Usually the ones you admire, you admire them because they knew how to push your pride filled button and the ones who deflate your pride you will accuse of all sorts of things without proof.

    Why not just swallow the red pill, look at the mirror and examine yourself before you start examining others.

    Now that I have thrown my pearl, which will it be? Have I throne my pearl to a pig or to an angel.

    I leave that decision for you to make.

    Good day and thanks for the slander. We needed it.

    Now if you excuse me, I have to shovel money.

    • Sandy Smith

      I don’t mind learning thank you. And yes thank you for the slander. I’m going to end this conservation because I don’t want to keep going in circles.

      • Grace Ziem

        Dear Sandy, Walid responded from love, a long, carefully thought thru response. No, we aren’t all so angry/aggressive, and yes, this is very different from the more gentle sites I often visit (what many would call evangelical sites), because in the ones I chose, almost no one condemns, but then, they aren’t struggling as hard to keep up with Islam either.

        It is hard to keep learning about people who want to kill us, Christ calls us to have great courage! Happy New Year, Sandy!.

  • Grace Ziem

    Yes, every non-Christian has personal problems that are serious spiritual problems. He was afraid to allow others to hear the Bible! What a treasure is God’s Word, with a long history of sacrifice to bring it to us, if only we treasured it for the precious gift it is!

  • Grace Ziem

    Eddie, we are understandably angry at these things, but we are blessed to have been raised with Christian teachings but most Muslims NEVER HAD ACCESS to Christian teaching! They are NOT animals, but people for whom Christ also died. Christ has appeared to thousands of Muslims by dreams/visions: read Tom Boyle’s book: Dreams and Visions. Since God loves them, they are humans for whom He died.

    We have been commanded to love our enemies and share the Gospel with them:Matt 28:19 “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, The internet ad donating to brave organizations who bring the Gospel to many nations allows us to do this.

  • Grace Ziem

    So you are saying “the best thing” is to think of yourself first? I guess you are not a follower of Christ, because He says in Matt 16:24 “If anyone wants to follow me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.”. Heaven is the next life; this isn’t it. Heaven is for those who obey and follow Christ; I am hoping that will be you, but only you can decide.

    Following Christ isn’t easy but it wasn’t easy for Him to go to the cross either. Why would He let His blood cover those who don’t care about others?
    Matt 25: 41 “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.42 For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink,43 I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’
    44 “They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’
    45 “He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’
    46 “Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.”

    • susan

      Yes Grace and one ALSO needs to use discernment. AZ gal is pointing out the obvious. Paul also used the authorities to save his own life. More than once. Please don’t be so quick to tell others they’re not followers of Jesus Christ. They may be…more than you or me.
      Happy New Year Grace! 😉

      • Grandmere

        Thank God you’re back! I’ll make a big pot of coffee. You check the med locker. It’s been kind of crazy here at the foundation.

          Thanks Grandmere. I’ll grab the leftover creme brûlée creamer. Or would you prefer the chocolate hazelnut one?
          Looks like some of these patients need discharging. They’re well enough to be a nuisance. Time for them to go home to their families. 😉

          • Grandmere

            Don’t I know it. I discharged Flame, Wilma, Magaforever, Hound and they keep coming back trying to tap dance to the theme from Looney Tunes,

  • Grace Ziem

    Really? “Let’s hope he rots”? Who are you following, it doesn’t seem to be Christ…James 1:26 “If you claim to be religious but don’t control your tongue, you are fooling yourself, and your religion is worthless.” We all need to stay grounded in God’s Word or we can make serious mistakes with eternal consequences. I wish you a Happy New Year, Chet!

    • Julie LaBrecque

      Don’t forget to keep the traditions as they were handed on —-per St Paul, 2 These 2:15, 2 These 3:6 :))))

  • Grace Ziem

    Sandy, I think we all know what the writer meant. You come and read and criticize the people who bring this information for minor grammar issues..Really? The woman was reading the Bible to them, a wonderful thing to do, with more love in her heart than many commenters here, and you are going to criticize HER…,
    And what have you done lately to obey Christ: Mark 13:10 “And the gospel must first be preached to all the nations.”. Please read God’s precious Word, Sandy, people died to preserve it for us! Muslims can’t get it without risking their life, and you criticize THEM? Happy New Year! We have the gospel, thus nothing to complain about!

    • Grandmere

      Does your Bible have I and II Maccabees in it. I and II Esdras, Tobit, Wisdom of Soloman, ……………? People died to preserve the whole Bible you know.

  • Grace Ziem

    Dear Walid, I can really understand the battle fatigue, but I keep reminding myself my Lord was patient with me for so long, so now He asks me to do it.

  • Grandmere

    Fortunately, she didn’t. But unfortunately for those people, she probably will never be back.

  • No problem Sandy. I understand. Happy new year to you too.

  • Grandmere

    I can believe that.

  • Grandmere

    Now that you know about our work at Rescue Christians, I think you understand why we stuck up for Walid. We are always so thrilled when we get an update on our work. I can get a little bit snarky but my intention was to provoke you to find out about Rescue Christians, not Grandstand. We are in the wild west. I wish you good things for 2017.

  • Grandmere

    Thanks, Chet.

  • Grandmere

    We have the same thing here with criminals who have been deported multiple times.

  • Grandmere

    I love Arizona! My sister lives out there. Grace talks a lot but she has yet to tell us about her ministry to Muslims. We are chomping at the bit to find out the secrets to her success. Happy New Year!

  • Grandmere

    Or a bathroom.

  • Grace Ziem

    Yes, the Bible tells us not to marry (be yolked with means marry) unbelievers.It tells Israelites to separate from heathens but this is never taught by Christ because He came for all nations.

    It never even implies we should first seek safety and comfort: Christ commands us to preach the gospel in Matt 28:19 and tells us to not fear the adversary: .Matt 10:28 “And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell”. Here Christ is blunt about non-obedience.

    You imply you need to know what I do: I pray for Muslims, donate to help save them, encourage witness programs for them, learn about their beliefs and concerns, and join efforts to reach them better in many ways. Let me know if you need to know more. I wish you a Happy New Year!

    • Grandmere

      Said the judge from behind her computer. You judge people that you don’t know because they don’t put their very life or that of their family at risk while you sit back in safety yourself. You are one big, steaming pile of hypocrisy.

      • Grace Ziem

        It is not my purpose to judge, I want to share the Bible because I lived an illusion without scripture, making it up per my own thoughts. Christ made it clear that would NOT pass with Him.I think it is easy to think we are OK when we are really following ourself. Wouldn’t you rather know now than at judgement? The Bible is His Word, why would we ignore it?…,

        James, a pillar of the church who had known Christ for many years, tells us: James 2:26 “As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead”. If I didn’t care Grand, I would watch a movie…

  • Grace Ziem

    Sorry if I wasn’t clear, Christ wants us to love others, even our enemies. He has a right to ask that, since He did it. I’m not the judge, He is.

  • Grandmere

    She doesn’t understand that you can love someone who is rotting in jail. The executioner can pray for the soul of the man he is about to dispatch. This site has turned into the Grace Ziem unsolicited advice column.
