Moroccan Man Who Sought to ‘Avenge Palestine’ Found Guilty of Murder


A Moroccan asylum seeker who said he wanted to ‘avenge Palestine’ was found guilty on Thursday of murdering a retiree on the streets of an English seaside town.

As per the Associated Press, 45-year-old Ahmed Alid killed 31-year-old Terence Carney by stabbing him six times in Hartlepool on October 15. The attack came just minutes after he stabbed his sleeping housemate, Javed Nouri. Alid allegedly shouted “Allahu Akbar,” or “God is great” in Arabic while stabbing his victims.

Shortly thereafter, police found Alid close to the murder scene with a bloody knife in his possession. He later admitted to investigators that he did it because the United Kingdom helped create the “Zionist entity” of Israel and that the Jewish State had “killed innocent children.”

Alid had begun carrying a knife after watching live TV coverage of the Oct. 7 Hamas terror attack on southern Israel. Every time he saw footage of Hamas killing innocent Israelis he would laugh, according to 31-year-old survivor Nouri.

“Every time they would kill somebody, he would praise God,” Nouri told the AP. “I was very upset from that night, and I saw something terrible and frightening in his eyes.”

Although he acknowledged the stabbings, Alid’s defense lawyers issued a not-guilty plea at Teesside Crown Court, arguing that he had no intent to kill or cause serious harm. In the end, the jury unanimously found him guilty of all charges, including assaulting two female police officers during interrogation.
