26 Americans were killed, 80 were injured in just one day of Gun Violence, 9,061 Killed in Seven Months and 20 Days, By August 20, 2016
Tens of thousands of Americans are killed every year in domestic and workplace gun violence, tens of thousands more are injured, all of that is for the benefit of the gun industry, and indirectly for the benefit of the war industry, both of which promote violence in the United States.
Zionist-controlled politicians and media are dead silent about this continuous holocaust, which is perpetrated against the American people on daily basis. However, they wait for a rare gun shooting incident perpetrated by a Muslim, then they repeat mentioning it, as incitement against Muslims generally, and Muslim Americans in particular, ignoring the continuous American holocaust, which is perpetrated by non-Muslims.
The objective is to justify the continuous US wars and invasions of the Muslim World since 1990, in order for the war industry beneficiaries to justify the enormous and unprecedented US national debt, which has reached more than $19 trillion, as a result of the permanent-war military spending.
For example, in 2015, there were 53,228 shooting incidents, resulting in the killing of 13,415 Americans. Of these, there were only two incidents perpetrated by Muslims and resulting in the killing of 18 Americans.
The Zionist media, like Fox News and CNN, together with the war industry agents and Zionist-controlled politicians like Trump, kept mentioning these two incidents while totally ignoring the other 53,226 incidents, which resulted in the killing of 13,398 Americans!
The end outcome is that the American people are indeed actual victims of a continuous warmongering campaign, Islamophobia, and a daily holocaust, perpetrated against them by the war industry beneficiaries and their agents in the media and politics.
For a background, read:
26 Americans were killed, 80 were injured in gun violence incidents, in just one day, on August 20, 2016.
During the first seven months and 20 days of 2016, there were 9,061 Americans who were killed and 18,884 who were injured by other Americans, in 35,353 incidents of gun violence, including 246 mass shootings.
In 2015, there were 13,415 Americans who were killed and 27,000 who were injured by other Americans in 53,226 incidents of gun violence, including 330 mass shootings.
In 2014, there were 12,588 Americans who were killed and 23,035 who were injured by other Americans in 51,811 incidents of gun violence, including 280 mass shootings.
Here's just one of the stories of the thousands of shootings in the U.S., which led to the killing of Americans for the benefit of the gun and war industry:

Indiana State Police make arrest in Salem double homicide

SALEM, Ind. —
Indiana State Police detectives have made an arrest in connection with a double homicide in Salem.
Just before 6 p.m. Joe Hambel, 29, was arrested and charged with two counts of murder for the shooting deaths of Valerie Dicus, 37, and Joseph Hobson, 36.
Autopsies revealed that Dicus died of a single gunshot wound and Hobson died of multiple gunshot wounds.
Police responded to the 3000 block of Small Street at 12:24 a.m. Saturday.
Someone had called 911, saying they found two people unresponsive inside the home, police said.
“The Salem City Police Department, as well as the Washington County Sheriff's Department responded to the scene. They discovered the bodies and immediately called EMS,” Sgt. Jerry Goodin with Indiana State Police said.
Investigators said the pair had been staying at the home on Small Street where they were discovered.
Neighbors said news of the homicides are unsettling.
“You don't really expect to see it in your town at all really,” said a neighbor who did not want to be identified.
“You hear about that more down south not right here behind, not our neighbor,” neighbor Kayla Hildreth said.
Police aren't commenting on a motive or how the victims knew their accused killer.
But people who live in the area say drugs are a growing problem in the neighborhood.
“We knew something. We knew something was going to happen because she was out there,” Hildreth said.
Hildreth said she had some trouble with the pair in recent weeks and chose to avoid them.
She said the couple had just moved in with Dicus' father.
“(Dicus’ father is) really good. Really cares for his kids and he just lost his wife a year ago and he's had it really rough,” Hildreth said.
Investigators are still waiting on toxicology results from the autopsies.
That could take four to six weeks to complete.
The agency is assisting local authorities with the investigation.
