Shooting outside mosque causes chaos, may spark leftist nonsense

Two Muslim men in Queens, NY left their mosque yesterday after prayers. It was an imam and his assistant. As they were walking, a tall, young Hispanic man, dressed in shorts, a dark polo shirt and wearing glasses, calmly walked up behind them, drew a gun and shot each of the men in the back of the head. One died immediately, the other passed a short time later. The suspect turned and fled, gun in hand. He is still at large.

Police have determined that the motive was not robbery, because one of the men had over $1,000 on him and it was not taken. They are not calling it a hate crime yet and are conducting an investigation into the motives of the crime. There were multiple witnesses… but how, I wonder, did they know for sure he was Hispanic? There was a dispute at the mosque and police are also looking into that.

Well over a hundred Muslims congregated outside immediately after the shooting to start protesting that they wanted justice. Speakers blamed Donald Trump for the deaths, saying that he spreads Islamophobia. That’s not true. I’m no fan of the Trumpster, but all I’ve ever heard him say is that he wants Muslims vetted as they enter the country. That’s not Islamophobia, that’s sane and reasoned. These people are mixing a tragedy with a political agenda and that is very, very dangerous. Trump is a convenient fall guy here.

From The New York Daily News:

A lone gunman opened fire on a Queens imam and his assistant as the two walked after Saturday afternoon prayers, leaving one dead and the other critically wounded.

The gunshots rang out near the Al-Furqan Jame Masjid Mosque in Ozone Park, leaving both men lying on the ground in their own blood just a block from the house of worship, according to witnesses.

The two were wearing Muslim garb when each was shot in the head around 1:50 p.m. on 79th St., said police sources. It was unclear if the killer said anything before he started shooting, and police did not identify which of the two men was killed.

“We are devastated,” said Kobir Chowdhury, president of a second neighborhood mosque. “We need to get to the bottom of this. We need to know if they did this just because of our religion.” I agree and if it is, then those responsible need to feel the full force of our laws. But only those that are guilty are to answer for this monstrous act and they need to be proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt and be afforded their constitutional rights while being tried by a jury of their peers.

Even worse were the speakers who bragged loudly that over 900 of the NYPD’s finest were police officers and they should be the ones patrolling their neighborhoods. Sharia law anyone? The Islamists see an opportunity to implement Islamic doctrine and are seizing it. The blood had not even grown cold before they started pushing this.

We are seeing this all over the country now – the whipping up of fear and hatred using race and religion. It’s terrifying and speaks of very bad things to come. Specifically civil unrest in our streets. We must stop all of this leftist nonsense and hysteria before it finishes spinning out of control.
