'British Woman Beheaded' In Tenerife
Sky News ^ | May 13th 2011 | Staff

Posted on 05/13/2011 8:45:09 AM PDT by Cardhu

A British woman has been stabbed and beheaded in Tenerife, according to reports.

The woman was reportedly attacked in a supermarket in the town of Los Cristianos on the island.

A Bulgarian man has been detained by Spanish police.

Spanish media reported that witnesses saw the man enter a Chinese supermarket at the Valdes Shopping Centre and, without saying a word, attacked the woman with a knife, cutting her head off.

Manuel Reveron, a local a councillor for citizen security said: "Apparently this gentleman without any motive or any reason, although for this there is no reasoning, entered the shop and then cut this woman's neck and took the head in his hand outside up to the sidewalk.

"Then the security guard was able to throw him on the ground and we covered the macabre (site)."

The Canary Islands, out in the Atlantic off Spain. A very popular European tourist destination, previously best-known worldwide for being the place of the worst aircraft disaster in history, the 1977 ground collision of two 747s at Los Rodeos.

Pet peeve of mine -- the use of the word "gentlemen" to describe violent criminals. I see it quite a bit.

Wow, multiculturalism.

A Bulgarian man decapitates an English woman, in a Chinese store, on one of the Spanish Canary Islands, off the coast of Africa.

Although our media does it too, I think the use of words like “gentleman” that have a positive meaning in instances like this, are used because people don’t have a good grasp of the English language.

Of course that would cover our media too these days.

Remember the Chinese, Vince Weiguang Li, who killed and beheaded a fellow passenger in Canada on a Greyhound bus?

“Apparently this gentleman without any motive or any reason...”

What really angers me is the out-of-control usage of the word “gentlemen” for every scumbag around. At best they MAY be a male, but certainly not a gentlemen.

Yes it is I have been there a couple of times - a wonderful vacation spot, great weather.

As the islands are Spanish the government pays for subsidized vacations for any Spanish person over 65 during the winter. As do the Scandinavians and Germans.

This is good business as it is much better to give people a vacation than pay the staff who would be laid off in the winter - The government saves money and everyone is happy.

The Scandianvian government takes over several hotels on the island for their old people to escape the winter too.

"Apparently this gentleman without any motive or any reason..."

Motive: To enforce the "will of Allah"

Reason: Has nothing to do with Muslims or anything they do

And by the way, you don't refer to a man who beheaded a woman in a marketplace as a "gentleman". I really hate seeing the word misused this way, and it happens all the time in the Media Brotherhood.

multicultural: Anything but White

Our culture is on the chopping block by the Leftists. It doesn’t deserve to survive. That’s why any culture or ethnicity other than White is so dog gone interesting to Leftists.

Name any nation other than a nation with a majority of Whites that is taken to task 24/7/365 to become multi-cultural. Bet you can’t name one.

Is multi-cultural a buzz word in Mexico, China, Egypt, Pakistan, India...

What I mean by this, is the almost constant depiction of society just not being very interesting, unless Whites are less than 5% of the people present.

Do people make this case with regard to Mexicans in Mexico, the Chinese in China, the Egyptians in Egypt?

What we have going on in the U.S. is the focused destruction of White influence, in total. If you hear talk of the time when Whites will sink below 50% in the U.S., it’s in glowing terms. Why is that?

Multiculturalism is for all intents and purposes, the racial buzz-word that is used when you want to talk about the destruction of a class of people, without coming right out and saying it.

It’s just racism.

Bizarre scene? Man, no kidding. There must be some kind of translation issue.

Guy sawing off someone’s head in public then walking out of the store carrying the head (probably had a gallon of milk in the other hand) counts as just a bit odd.

Decapitation is considered a sign incompatible with life, so resuscitative measures would not have been indicated.

From Wikipedia:

“Islam is the largest minority religion in Bulgaria. According to the 2001 Census, the total number of Muslims in the country stood at 966 978, corresponding to 12.2% of the population.[1] The Muslim population of Bulgaria, which is made up of Turks, Bulgarians and Roma lives mainly in parts of northeastern Bulgaria and of the Rhodope Mountains.”

It could be that this guy is just crazy. But cutting off heads tends to be a Muslim thing.

As for the word “gentleman,” give the guy a break. Clearly he speaks English as a second language, and is used to using polite terms in speaking about tourists. It’s his word for “hombre,” I imagine.
