Muhaydin Mire: knife jihad in London, cowards and proper Muslims with mobile phones

Muhaydin Mire Muhaydin Mire waves a long-bladed box cutter in Leytonstone Tube Station, London, allegedly. Reports say he’s yelling “This is for Syria”, although which part of that benighted country is unclear.

Mire, 29,  of Sansom Road, east London, is due to appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court. He’s been charged with attempted murder.
