Canadian Mosque Attack
I waited almost a week to see if there would be any correction from the idiotic Right about this latest terrorist attack in Quebec…..nothing that I saw….But I did not expect these toads to do the right thing….that is not how bigotry works.
I guess maybe I should fill in the blanks about here…I would not want those confused to oft themselves for lack of understanding…..
In what Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called “a terrorist attack on Muslims in a center of worship and refuge,” six people were killed and at least eight others injured in a shooting at a mosque in Quebec City on Sunday night. Police initially arrested two men—Alexandre Bissonnette and Mohamed el Khadir, according to a Quebec City court clerk—but later said just one remains a suspect, without naming him. One was arrested at the scene and another nearby, in his car on a bridge near d’Orleans where he called 911 to say he wanted to cooperate with police. Police said they did not believe there were other suspects but were investigating. A witness tells the CBC that two masked men with local accents started shooting after entering the men’s section of the mosque at around 8pm.
“They started to fire, and as they shot they yelled, ‘Allahu akbar!’ The bullets hit people that were praying. People who were praying lost their lives.” “Tonight, Canadians grieve for those killed in a cowardly attack on a mosque in Quebec City,” Trudeau tweeted. “My thoughts are with victims & their families.” Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard also called the “barbaric violence” an act of terrorism and said flags would be lowered to half-staff. The Montreal Gazette reports that the Quebec City Islamic Cultural Center is one of six mosques in the region and had a pig’s head dumped on its doorstep with a card reading “bonne appétit” last June. In a statement, the mosque urged “the Muslim community to remain calm and united and to know that the Canadian people stand with us in solidarity.”
This where the morons on the Right picked up with the story…..it all is so much “fake news”….it was those damn Muslims….why? The report is that they were yelling…”allahu akbar” as they were shooting…..and the idiots bite on this just so they could spread their vile and their hate……
The authorities arrested a Moroccan man for the shooting……
The man mistakenly arrested during Sunday night’s attack on a Quebec City mosque says he was trying to save a friend’s life—but he understands why he ended up spending a night in jail. Mohamed Belkhadir, a 29-year-old engineering student of Moroccan origin, says he was clearing snow outside the mosque when gunfire erupted, the Toronto Star reports. He says he ran inside, called 911, and was helping an injured friend when an armed man appeared. Belkhadir says he fled, not realizing the man was a police officer, and was arrested as a suspect. “I understand,” he said after being cleared of suspicion Monday, per the Huffington Post. “I respect that they caught me. They saw me flee, they thought I was suspicious.”
He was not the shooter…..the real shooter has been identified and arrested…..
Authorities in Canada think Sunday night’s mosque shooting that left six people dead is a “lone wolf situation,” reports Reuters, and they think they’ve got their shooter: Alexandre Bissonnette, 27, appeared in court Monday and was charged with six counts of first-degree murder and five counts of attempted murder, reports CBC News. So far, he does not face any terrorism-related charges. Bissonnette attended Laval University, near the Quebec City mosque, and studied political science and anthropology. The AP reports that he was known to espouse “far-right nationalist views” online, and the Toronto Globe and Mail reports that this didn’t begin until March when nationalist leader Marine Le Pen visited Quebec City.
“I wrote him off as a xenophobe,” says a fellow Laval student. “He was enthralled by a borderline racist nationalist movement.” A member of a refugee advocacy group says Bissonnette had become a familiar name to those who monitor extremist groups. He was “unfortunately known to many activists in Quebec for taking nationalist, pro-Le Pen and anti-feminist positions at Laval University and on social media,
Do you think that those that were quick to blame a Muslim man would correct their lie?
Of course they won’t and in some cases will make excuses but never admit that they LIED!
These douche bags take every opportunity to spread hate and lies….someone needs to call them out….why not me?
Just FYI…..terrorism is a real threat and yet here in the US our chances of being killed by a foreign born attacker is…….0.00003%…..
I cannot wait to here the excuse the fear mongers will have with this info….
