Updated on August 7, 2011

Standing outside a library in Bloomington, Minn., Samira was just handing out books,

Korans to be exact when suddenly; inexplicably she decided to stab a couple of people with something.

A woman passing by got a stab of something sharp to her back.

Samira Abdalla Salim age 35was often seen at the library as she lived next door and often stood outside the library handing out the Koran and talking religion. She was described as peaceful. You know a peaceful Muslim handing out a book that calls for the death, decapitation and annihilation of all infidels. It is just mind boggling that this peaceful Muslim woman could attack two strangers out of the blue, for no reason, unprovoked. Isn’t it?

Anyway, the stabbed woman yelled for help and the security guard ran to assist her and Samira stabbed him in the stomach.

I can’t help but wonder if lil Samira knew if the woman and the security guard were Muslims or Christians or Jews or Buddhists, or Atheists. I mean I assume she was trying to convert them. She could have at least asked them if they were followers of Allah before she stabbed them

Her neighbor, Anisa Ahmed said, “I never thought she would do that. She was very nice,”

She was arrested and charged with 2nd degree assault, or something like that.

Maybe she should switch to different reading material. Ya think? Maybe take a different approach to converting folks.

      To All, Kuwait is a peaceful country. A woman in their "Congress" wants to bring back "sex slaves for men." H

      Hi POP: I got the giggles when I read your comment. Yes, that's it. You've got it. In the middle east they kidnap women and rape them until they convert. I guess that works too. Stabbin and a rapin they go.

      I guess this is the Muslim method of religious conversion, hand your victim a Koran and stab them!

      Sally, I keep pondering that question. As the mom of three boys, now grown men I keep puzzling over those millions of young men in the Middle East that are so filled with rage and have so much free time they can riot, rage and demonstrate day after day after day. THere is something huge missing in the Middle East that keeps these folks from acting normally and something that keeps this awful hatred for jews and Christians boiling century after century. It's really quite overwhelming.

      I just read another hub (about abused children). What can we do to settle of world's problems? How can we work together towards the common good? How can we convice folks that we are more alike than different? Your hub raises lots of good questions. Thanks

      Hi Ms Dee: I thought you would identify with the story.

      Frog, I'm sorry about the shock. Next time do not, under any circumstances show your dog pictures of this nature. That could be construed as animal cruelty, I'm pretty sure anyway.

      Dee - Not to be unkind but I read this 5 hours ago and looked at "the lady" in question. My eyes are just now recovering from the sensory shock they experienced.

      My hound dog ran out and tried to find a bear to hug. He's now cowering in the corner.

      Thanks for reporting this. I'd not heard. This is similar to what I witnessed in Asia. Neighbors who for years were peace-loving are convinced for their "religion" to attack infidels.

      Lizzee - Now there's a spin on how to convert people to a "peaceful" religion. I don't consider the Koran to be a book of religion atall. I have read the thing and it isn't about peace and loving your neighbor as you do yourself.

      They need to lock the lunatic up for spell and maybe forget where they put the key.

      That's what they keep saying and the entire Middle East is a hotbed of war.

      ms, In jail she will only be with more Muslim's that will praise her. Maybe one our wonderful judges will give her probation. H
