New Zealand in Mourning

Recommended Posts

49 people were killed and 48 injured in mass shootings at two mosques full of people in Christchurch, New Zealand.

To make it even more horrible, the terrorist(s) livestreamed the shootings. Many hours after the massacre, the horrific 17-minute video — showing a man in black shooting with a semiautomatic rifle at those running from mosques and shooting into piles of bodies — could still be easily accessed on YouTube.  The attack was fueled and fomented on social media — inviting support and, no doubt, inspiring future copy cats. One of the suspects had posted a 74-page manifesto railing against Muslims and immigrants, making it clear that he was following the example of those like Dylann Roof, who in 2015 murdered nine black churchgoers in Charleston, South Carolina.

"Innocent people being murdered as they worship is horrific and heartbreaking. My thoughts and solidarity are with New Zealand's Muslim community and all of its people on this dark day." (Nicola Sturgeon, Scotland's First Minister)

"The attack on Muslim citizens is also an attack on New Zealand's democracy and its open and tolerant society. We share these values and thus also the horror of the New Zealanders." (Angela Merkel)

Make no mistake - this is an attack on us all who believe in tolerance, democracy, freedom of speech and religion - an attack against everything that Europe has stood for since the Enlightement.

"O Allah, forgive them and have mercy on them, keep them safe and sound and forgive them, honour the place where they settle and make their entrance wide; wash them with water and snow and hail, and cleanse them of sin as a white garment is cleansed of dirt. .. . O Allah, admit them to Paradise and protect them from the torment of the grave and the torment of Hell-fire; make their graves spacious and fill it with light."

(The Salat al-Janazah  - the Muslim prayer for the dead)
