Would-be UNC-Chapel Hill motorterrorist Mohammad Reza Taheri included this curious passage in his explanatory note to authorities:

In the Qur’an, Allah states that the believing men and women have permission to murder anyone responsible for the killing of other believing men and women. I know that the Qur’an is a legitimate and authoritative holy scripture since it is completely validated by modern science and also mathematically encoded with the number 19 beyond human ability

Wretchard of The Bellmont Club explains the numerology behind Taheri’s ravings, here.
