A gang of Muslims nearly killed a college lecturer while he was out jogging in Birmingham back on January 5.
According to Breitbart, Lee Skinner was running along the canal side near Yardley Road, Acocks Green in the middle of the afternoon when one man in a group of Muslims punched him in the face and knocked him into the freezing canal water.
Skinner was “able to identify them as Pakistani as I’ve worked in Muslim communities and have a detailed knowledge of Islam and speak Arabic to a certain level” reports The Daily Mirror.

While he was not knocked out completely, he was prevented from getting out by his assailant, according to a police spokesman.
The quick-thinking lecturer then cried out “There is no God but Allah” in Arabic and his attackers fled the scene, thinking they had attacked a fellow Muslim. He was then able to crawl out of the water, but cut his legs while doing so.
Skinner caught up to four of the group, though not his principal aggressor, who told him “the attack happened because I was white”.
He warned the group “that in the current political climate, such actions could have a negative effect on the Muslim Pakistani community.”
Eventually, he had to be treated at a hospital for damage to his cheekbone, teeth and neck muscles.
