Two Suspects Arrested & Identified In Canadian Mosque Shooting

At least one of the shooters in the Canadian mosque shooting has a Muslim sounding name, the other a Canadian sounding name.  My guess is that they are both Muslims but that is just a guess right now even though they, or at least one of them, were/was reported to be shouting "Allahu Akbar" while shooting and at least one of them was of Moroccan origin. At first, it seemed to me that the media reports tried to steer folks to the belief that the attack was perpetrated by Canadians who were anti-Muslim extremists in as much as they reported that witnesses said the shooters had Quebecois (A French speaking native of Quebec) accents. They 
then went on to talk about how witnesses were concerned about a pig's head having been left at a Mosque not all that long ago, seemingly as if one had led to the other. The reports even quoted the mosque's president as having said this about the pig's head: ""We were told that it was an isolated act, but today we have deaths," Yangui told reporters." I also am guessing that the idea that the culprits were anti-Muslim extremists did not hold pig's blood but again that is just my guess, I am sure more info will be divulged as to their identities. More here.

Soon though, no matter who were the killers, I am pretty sure someone down here in the USA will be blaming this on President Trump and his immigration policies. Just imagine how relieved George W. Bush must be since it appears that President Trump has finally taken the heat off of him.

My condolences to the families and loved ones of the deceased and my wishes for a speedy recovery for the injured.

All the best,

Well, maybe I was wrong and it was a Canadian non-Muslim national/extremist and not a Muslim extremist, who orchestrated the mosque attack in Quebec. Now authorities are saying it was the guy with the Quebec style name who is the only suspect so far. Of course, he could be of any religion - no mention made of that yet or of his political leanings. Whatever, it is obvious to me that, if guilty, he deserves to be executed for what he has done; although, I do not believe Canada has the death penalty.

All the best,

He's a right-wing extremist---and Trump supporter.
