19 Americans Killed, 41 Injured in Just One Day of Gun Violence, 9,907 Killed in Eight Months and Seven Days, by September 7, 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:

Man and woman found shot in the head on I-85
September 8, 2016
Police are investigating a double shooting that happened on I-85N just before Cleveland Ave.
According to police, a man and woman were both found shot in the head in an SUV pulled off to the shoulder.
The call came in to Atlanta police just after 9:00 a.m. Wednesday morning after police said HERO trucks pulled up on the SUV.
"HERO trucks pulled up on this and initially believed the individuals were asleep in the vehicle," Ben McGee with Atlanta Police Department said.
It is unclear how long the SUV was there before HERO arrived. The man was dead at the scene and the woman was taken to Grady Hospital in serious condition.
Police said they found a handgun in the SUV and are still processing the scene.
"We have not established a motive, nor have we established the relationship between the parties involved," McGee said.
He said they have not yet identified the subjects but they do know that the dead man was in his 50s and the woman is in her 30s.
