The terrorist attack at the gay Pulse nightclub in Orlando should be out of the news by now since yet another terrorist attack has happened in France. The media though, like a dog with a bone, are desperate to find a motive for the slaughter; any motive just as long as it is not jihad. The latest ridiculous suggestion will have you scratching your head. Desperate to ignore the facts, they are suggesting his steroid use may have had something to do with it.
First, let’s look at the facts:
- It was not a man named Bruce who, in an act of terrorism, mowed down women and children at a family celebration in France. It was a man named Mohamed.
- It was not the first ISIS-inspired terrorist attack in France nor will it be the last.
- All the terrorist attacks in France this decade have been committed by radicalised Muslim jihadis. Every single one.
- France is not the only European country to experience a terrorist attack committed by a radicalised Muslim jihadi.
So he’s tried to go join ISIL, he’s threatened a Muslim leader who was assaulted, he’s held a knife to the neck of a motorist and he’s threatened a security guard.
Now a journalist and his family are trying to convince us this man should not go to prison.
The father of Imran Patel, the 26-year-old Aucklander convicted for distributing extremist videos, tells Yasmine Ryan he fears that jail risks turning a silly boy into a serious threat.
When Imran Patel shouted, “Tell John Key to stop being a slave to America, and to get out of Iraq. Allahu akbar!” after being sentenced last Thursday, the courtroom fell silent. It was a frightening moment, but also a tragic one. This was, without a doubt, a defining moment in his life’s trajectory.
For his distraught parents, it might well be the moment they lost their son, in both a physical and a spiritual sense. “That’s what you get!” his father shouted to the courtroom, shaking his head as he and his wife walked out in frustration.
They had been hoping for a sentence of home detention, he says, to allow leaders of the Muslim community to try to talk to Imran. Other members of the community confirmed that there is wide concern in the community for Imran Patel’s hardline, potentially dangerous, views.
Good, we need to stay on mission and continue training Iraqi troops so they can go put the bad wogs from Daesh in deep holes in the ground.
Kiwi troops will be extending their mission in Iraq by 18 months and will also be leaving their base for another on occasion, the Defence Minister has announced.
Prime Minister John Key, Defence Minister Gerry Brownlee and Foreign Affairs Minister Murray McCully made the announcement at the post-Cabinet news conference on Monday afternoon.
Among the changes, it was announced a small number of around six or eight at a time will travel “for short periods” to Besmaya — another secure training location 52km southeast of the existing joint New Zealand-Australia base.
“At Besmaya our troops will ensure a smooth handover of the Iraqi soldiers they’ve been training at Taji to other coalition trainers, who will be teaching them to use heavy weapons,” Mr Brownlee says. Read more »
John Key has blamed Orlando’s killings on a lack of gun control. He’s completely and utterly wrong and buying into the lies being promulgated by Hillary Clinton about FBI watch lists.
Prime Minister John Key says the United States should be asking itself tough questions about gun control after the Orlando shootings rather than leaping into anti-Muslim rhetoric.
Mr Key said he hoped anti-Muslim comments such as those by presumptive Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump would not escalate the situation.
“This is the time for the United States to ask itself difficult questions about why there are so many attacks of this nature using weapons.
That’s been a longstanding debate about gun control and the proliferation of guns in the United States, and you certainly wouldn’t want to turn it into an issue about people’s religion or ethnic beliefs.”
Mr Key was not surprised Mr Trump had made comments about Islamic radicalism, saying it had been a big part of Mr Trump’s campaign.
“I don’t think any of us should be very surprised he’s beating that drum today.”
Mr Trump has been criticised for saying he did not want congratulations for being proved right in predicting there would be more such attacks and called for a ban on travel to the US by people from any country that had been implicated in previous attacks on the US.
Mr Key said it was not for him to critique the campaigns.
“This is the biggest attack we’ve seen for some period of time [but] there has been an ongoing series of people mis-using weapons and of these kind of attacks in the United States.”
Winston Peters delivered a speech in Parliament yesterday. He was 100% right in his speech when talking about the blame game over Islamic terrorism, and calls it as such.
He scotches claims about gun control, and the refusal to discuss what the real problem is…and that is Islam.
John Key wussed out. He refused to, or couldn’t, utter the word Islam. Not a mutter, not a murmur. On NewstalkZB on Monday morning he spoke to Mike Hosking and blamed it on a lack of gun control. He didn’t mention that in his speech but failed to even utter the word terrorism. Read more »
Can we stop calling this a failure of gun control yet?
Or the case of mental disorders?
Or remaining silent on the impact of Islam and the responsibility of their religion of hate.
The video above was made just days before the Orlando killings and the Imam clearly says gays must die.
Just weeks before the Islamic terror attack that left 50 young men dead at a gay bar in Orlando, Florida, Muslim scholar Sheikh Farrokh Sekaleshfar spoke at thelocal Husseini Islamic Center, calling for the death of homosexuals.
In a rant targeted towards homosexuals and women, Sekaleshfar said that killing homosexuals was the “compassionate” way to deliver Allah’s justice.
“Death is the sentence. We know. There’s nothing to be embarrassed about this,”Sekaleshfar calmly said in April. “Death is the sentence.” Read more »
A journalist is upset with media for not calling Orlando a gay hate crime.
Journalist Owen Jones has stormed out of a Sky News interview after the interviewer refused to call a mass shooting in Orlando, Florida an attack on LGBT people.
“At the end of the day this was a homophobic hate crime, as well as terrorism and has to be called out,” Mr Jones said. “As I have to say, on Sky News and lots of news channels, there’s not been many LGBT voices that I’ve heard myself.
“It is one of the worst atrocities committed against LGBT people in the Western world for generations, and it has to be called out as such.”
Host Mark Longhurst argued the incident was an attack on “human beings […] trying to enjoy themselves, whatever their sexuality”.
On Saturday night (local time) gunman Omar Mateen opened fire inside gay nightclub Pulse, killing at least 50 people and injuring 53 more.
Mr Jones said the presenters were trying to “deflect” the homophobic motive of the attack, saying Mr Longhurst “could not understand”, as he was not gay.
John Key wrote a letter to Barack Obama…how sweet. That won’t bring back 50 dead people killed by a Muslim extremist.
Neither will the liberal media ignoring the fact that this scumbag, a Muslim, who claims he works for ISIS, shoots up a bar full of people and the only thing they can talk about is gun control. There’s a real joke.
Prime Minister John Key has written to US President Barack Obama expressing New Zealand’s condolences for the Orlando massacre victims.
“No innocent person should have to worry about such violence when going about their daily lives, or be persecuted for their beliefs or lifestyle,” he said on Monday.
“Our thoughts are with the victims of the atrocity, their families and friends, and those that responded to the tragic attack.”
Labour leader Andrew Little has also condemned the attack by 29-year-old Omar Mateen, who shot dead 50 people in an Orlando nightclub and wounded at least 53. Read more »
Read what today’s face of the day, Milo Yiannopoulos, has to say about the Muslim terrorist massacre in Florida. Gays were targeted for death by the Muslim terrorist and Milo (himself a gay man) has some serious words for us all.
