I just landed in Tel Aviv, the site of a recent horrific terrorist mass shooting, and am now catching up with the details of an even more deadly attack back home in Orlando. The latest news I’ve received is that the death toll at the gay nightclub Pulse has reached 50, with 53 wounded. That makes this deadliest mass shooting in US history. The shooter was killed in a shootout with police. Please join me in praying for the victims and their families, and that the wounded will recover and there be no more casualties.
The link below has a recap of what happened if you’re just getting up on Sunday morning and hearing the news. The killer was identified as Omar Mateen, a US citizen of Afghan heritage from Port St. Lucie, Florida. Police say he entered the crowded dance club at 2 a.m., well-organized for an attack and carrying a seim-automatic rifle. It’s being treated as a radical Islamic terrorist attack. Authorities are usually hesitant to say that so early in an investigation, so there must be some pretty strong evidence. President Obama has been notified and is receiving regular updates. I am keenly interested to hear what he will say.
Obama, of course, has become famous for refusing to call obvious acts of Islamic terrorism, such as the Ft. Hood shooting and the San Bernadino shooting, by their accurate names. Western nations have opened their borders and kowtowed to radical ideologies in the name of political correctness and multiculturalism, and we are seeing the deadly results in Europe and now here in America. How many more tragic attacks will it take, in Europe, Israel and now in America, before self-hating liberal leaders wake up to the fact that radical Islam is a deadly menace, incompatible with Western values? News flash: there is a real war on gays and women, but it’s not Republicans who are waging it. And instead of the hate behind this vicious slaughter, we’ll probably hear more lectures about the firearm.
