Suspect in Quebec Mosque Attack Quickly Depicted as a Moroccan Muslim. Hes a White Nationalist.

A MASS SHOOTING at a Quebec City mosque last night left six people dead and eight wounded. The targeted mosque, the Cultural Islamic Center of Quebec, was the same one at which a severed pig’s head was left during Ramadan last June. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called the episode a “terrorist attack on Muslims.”

Almost immediately, various news outlets and political figures depicted the shooter as Muslim. Right-wing nationalist tabloids in the UK instantly linked it to Islamic violence. Fox News claimed that “witnesses said at least one gunman shouted ‘Allahu akbar!’,” and then added this about the shooter’s national origin:

1. Someone may have yelled Allahuh Akbar.

 

Probably one of the victims who realized he was about to die.

2. I heard the name on the radio and thought "A Muslim attacked a mosque"?

The only thing that made sense was that it was a love spat or had to go with money. A religious attack doesn't make any sense.
