The mainstream media and Muslims was quick to blame Donald Trump and the rise of Islamophobia in Canada on the Quebec City shooting that left six dead.
The mainstream media and Muslims pointed this out right after the story broke the internet:
The National Council of Canadian Muslims also condemned the attack and said Islamophobia is on the rise in Canada.
“The fact that the attack was on a mosque strongly suggests that this was a hate crime and an act of terrorism. This is the nightmare scenario that Canadian Muslims have been dreading,” Ihsaan Gardee, NCCM’s Executive Director, said in a statement.
“There is already a growing and documented climate of Islamophobia in Canada. There are legitimate fears that Trump’s so-called Muslim ban and accompanying rhetoric will lead to more hate, and further acts of violence like this.”
And this from CBC:
The Quebec City mosque where six were killed and 19 injured Sunday evening has been the target of xenophobic messaging and vandalism in the past.
Last July, in the middle of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, a gift-wrapped pig’s head was left at the front door with a note saying, “bon appétit.”
The consumption of pork is prohibited in the Muslim faith.
At the time, Mohamed Yangui, president of the Centre Culturel Islamique de Québec, said he believed the incident was isolated.
But names have now been released and the NEW STORY now is that it’s a Muslim on Muslim attack.
From Jihad Watch:
In light of the witness statement that they screamed “Allahu akbar,” it is likely that Bissonnette is a convert to Islam, and that this was, as I suggested last night, a case of Muslims firing upon other Muslims whom they deemed heretical: a Sunni-Shia dispute, or adherents of the Islamic State versus opponents of it, or Sunnis firing upon Ahmadiyya — depending on what kind of mosque it is. But there is no basis at this point for the widespread assumption that this was an “Islamophobic” attack carried out by deranged Trump supporters who wandered north of the border.
According to Radio-Canada and LCN, the two suspects in Sunday’s terror attacks in Quebec City are Alexandre Bissonnette and Mohamed Khadir.
More details to come as they get reported.
