A shooting at a mosque in Quebec City on Sunday night killed several people and injured others, the police said.

Étienne Doyon, a spokesman for the Quebec City police, told reporters at the scene that the attack on the mosque, the Islamic Cultural Center of Quebec, had occurred around 8 p.m. Mr. Doyon did not say how many people had been killed or wounded.

An earlier report from Reuters, citing the mosque’s president, said that five people had died after gunmen opened fire during evening prayers.

Witnesses cited by Reuters said that up to three gunmen had fired on about 40 people inside the mosque.

Mr. Doyon declined to confirm reports that five people had died.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called it “a cowardly attack on a mosque.”

The thread title confuses me: so if I try to get rid of a wasps' nest and the wasps come out and try to sting me, is it my fault or the wasps' fault?

But wasps will do what it is in their nature to do.

Some more details of the attack: http://www.foxnews.com/world/2017/01/30/at-least-five-killed...

Shouldn't you be hiding under a rock somewhere? Don't you know there's a war against white races and you are in danger?

Your confusion confuses me, is it wrong to think the violent murder of innocent people is horrible? What is confusing about the title? The horrible weekend part?

There already have been reports that the attackers yelled in arabic, so that should be enough for you. There are many reasons to hide suspects names in a ongoing investigation where accomplices may be involved.

Actually yes the did, it's in this story.

http://www.foxnews.com/world/2017/01/30/at-least-five-killed...

Additionally, they were looking for a 3rd suspect, so it's possible they weren't releasing the names of the 2 suspects either because 1. they weren't certain they were correct or 2. because it might have in some way compromised the hunt for the 3rd.

I'm sure in your mind this is some kind of secret squirrel conspiracy by the evil liberal Canadians but it's likely just good police work.

From the BBC: Quebec City court clerk Isabelle Ferland named the suspects as Alexandre Bissonnette and Mohamed el Khadir.

Given the name of one of the suspects, this might be Salafi-Takfiri muslims deciding this mosque was Takfiri (apostate), and so a legitimate target (in their twisted ideology). Or there may be a different rationale. We'll find out soon enough.

EDIT: CBC is reporting there's only one suspect - Alexandre Bissonette. El Khadir is a witness, not a suspect. Worth remembering that early reporting is often incomplete or inaccurate.

SECOND EDIT: More information on Bisonette.

Best guess:
--The shooters are wasps.
--Trump's rhetoric and immigration ban constitute getting rid of a wasp nest.
--The mosque-goers who died were the tragic victims of wasp-stings.
--The Trump administration (or maybe just the anti-immigrant movement in general?) shouldn't be blamed because getting rid of a wasp nest is necessary and right.

Am I close?

That is probably his over-simplified, poorly reasoned view of it. It conveniently ignores that Trump ignored the wasps nests that are the only ones known to have sent wasps into our house and stung us.

To twist an already painfully bent analogy even further, it also ignores all the innocent, honest, hardworking, aid-seeking ants and earthworms and, uh, bumblebees, and (hell with it) men, women and children who are now classified as wasps.

How do three armed people only manage to kill five out of forty who are probably all kneeling on the ground with their backs turned . . .

Only one armed shooter, and Canada is not an easy place to get ahold of rapid fire weapons.

http://www.rense.com/general29/silence.htm



Ok so you are linking to a document from the National Alliance titled

"The Killing Of Whites In South Africa...And America's Silence"

Would you care to expand on the relevant message you believe is in this document. Give that the National Alliance is described as

Quote:
The National Alliance (NA) was for decades the most dangerous and best organized neo-Nazi formation in America. Explicitly genocidal in its ideology, NA materials call for the eradication of the Jews and other races and the creation of an all-white homeland.


https://www.splcenter.org/fighting-hate/extremist-files/grou...

Oh yes and the website rense.com has these wonderful articles to link to on their front page

"Muslims Swear To Make It Legal To Rape White Women"

and

"Why Muslim Rapists Prefer Blondes"

Do let us know why you consider this website a valid source of information. Or is this some kind of satire?

Take your time, I have to get right of the cookies on my computer now.

When I went to bed last night, one of the gunmen was identified as a Muslim from morocco. The shooters were also shouting allahu Akbar

Today I see nothing.

Not even a report that the shooter was misidentified.

I see someone found something on the BBC, but that specific info has generally disappeared from the wider media without explanation.


There were a lot of rumours flying around. The police said nothing until today when they confirmed that it was the work of a single white male shooter, and that a Muslim man had been detained for questioning but released when it became clear he was only a witness.

I am not impressed with the sense of propriety shown on this thread.

The OP is about the murder of 5 Canadians for reasons as yet unclear.

And here stll on the first page we've got South African websites being raised and examined.
