A rabbi wearing full Jewish garb being stabbed by a Muslim shouting "Allahu Akbar" is not terrorism related, at least according to police in France.

From BBC:
An Orthodox Jewish man has been stabbed on a street in the French city of Strasbourg by an attacker reportedly shouting an Islamic slogan.

Police arrested the suspected attacker who was heard shouting "Allahu Akbar" ("God is great"), according to French newspaper JDD (in French).

A police source said the victim was in distinctive Jewish dress. His life is not believed to be in danger.

Local police told BBC News the attack was "not terrorist-related".

According to the police source quoted by AFP news agency, the suspected attacker has a history of mental illness.
RT says the man attacked another Jew in 2010.
According to the Journal du Dimanche publication, the attacker had a history of psychiatric problems.

“In 2010, he attacked another Jew in the city center of Strasbourg and he has psychological problems… How is it possible that someone like this can be on the streets as he can attack anybody,” [Friend of the stabbed Mendel] Samama said.
This multiculturalism is working out great.
