8 People Killed in Plano, Texas, Raising the Number of Gun Violence Victims to 10,720, But to the Disappointment of Zionists, the Perpetrator Is Not a Muslim
September 10, 2017
Al-Jazeerah Editor's Note:
To the disappointment of Zionists in the Media and Politics, Muslims are not involved in the killing of 8 Americans in Plano, Texas, on September 10, 2017.
If the perpetrator was a Muslim, then all Zionist media outlets (FOX, CNN, CNBC TV stations, etc.) would air continuous coverage about the shooter, pointing to his/her religion. However, because the shooter is not a Muslim, the story is not aired, just may briefly reported in written form on their websites.
The reason is that Zionists want the US to be dragged into continuous wars against Muslims, particularly in the Middle East, in order to secure their Zionist, Apartheid state of Israel, to keep it as the hegemonic, nuclear power, dominating that region.
Such smearing coverage about Muslims helps to neutralize the population, so Americans don't wake up and oppose the Zionist ploys.
If it is truly a free media, it should report the continuous bleeding and tragedies happening to Americans on daily basis, as a result of promoting the culture of gun violence, which is plaguing the American society, for the benefit of Zionists and other war beneficiaries.
So far, during the first 8 months and 10 days of 2017, there were 10,720 Americans who were killed and 21,560 who were injured by other Americans, in 43,062 incidents of gun violence, including 250 mass shootings, according to http://www.gunviolencearchive.org/.
Laura Petrecca, USA TODAY, 11:12 p.m. ET Sept. 10, 2017
Eight people were fatally shot Sunday evening in a home in Plano, Texas, including the suspected gunman, who was killed by police.
Two other shooting victims were taken to the hospital for medical treatment, Plano police officer David Tilley told USA TODAY.
"Were looking into a motive," he said. The relationship between the victims and the shooter was not yet known, and all involved are believed to be adults, he said.
The Texas Ranger Division of the Texas Department of Public Safety was also on the scene of the investigation, said Tilley. The officer who shot the suspect was placed on administrative leave pending the investigation, which is protocol, he said.
The shooting happened shortly after 8 p.m. CT, Tilley said.
Crystal Sugg, who said she works nearby, told local reporters including WFAA-TV she saw a man and a woman arguing outside the home, which is in a suburb north of Dallas.
After the argument, the woman went back in, Sugg said, and the man followed with a gun drawn. Sugg then heard a multitude of shots from what she said sounded like an automatic weapon.

NBC, September 10, 2017, by Associated Press
PLANO, Texas At least eight people are dead, including the suspect, after a shooting at a home in a Dallas suburb, authorities said.
The shooting occurred around 8 p.m. Sunday in the city less than 20 miles northeast of Dallas.
Plano police spokesman David Tilley said police initially responded to a report of shots fired. When the first officer arrived and went inside the home, the officer confronted the suspected shooter.

The officer opened fire, Tilley said, killing the suspect. Two others were injured in the shooting. Their conditions were not released.
The victims and suspect have not been identified. All of those killed and injured were believed to be adults.
Neighbor Stacey Glover told The Dallas Morning News that a party at the home had started early in the afternoon and she had seen people laughing and grilling outside. She says she then heard the shots around 8 p.m. She opened her door and smelled gunpowder. She heard police who arrived yell "hands up" before more shots rang out.
Neighbor Lauryn Nichols said she had a friend who had been in the house and she didn't know what had happened to the person.
"I'm worried," she told the newspaper. "It's like one big family here."
Police have not determined a motive for the shooting. Additional details were not immediately available.
Tilley said that a shooting of this magnitude was unusual for Plano, especially in such a quiet neighborhood. He could not say whether police had been called to the home before Sunday.
American Gun Violence Holocaust:
During the first 8 months and 10 days of 2017:
10,720 Americans Killed, 21,560 Injured by Other Americans, in 43,062 Incidents of Gun violence, Including 250 Mass Shootings, for the Benefit of the Gun Industry
All this is ignored by the war and gun industry agents in the media and politics, who only focus on spectacular mass shootings, particularly if they can make them appear related to terrorism.
They don't want to admit that the US has a major gun violence problem, caused basically by the continuous production and sales of all kinds of guns, and making them available to everybody who wants to buy them, even to mentally-ill people.
Al-Jazeerah Editorial Note:
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 2016, there were 58,241shooting incidents, including 385 mass shooting, resulting in the killing of 15,060 Americans and injuring 30,607. Of these, there was only one incident perpetrated by a Muslim and resulting in the killing of 49 people in an Orlando, Florida night club.
The Zionist media, together with the war industry agents and the Zionist-controlled politicians, kept mentioning this incident as a terrorist attack, just because the perpetrator was a Muslim, while totally ignoring the other 58,240 incidents, which resulted in the killing of 15,011 Americans!
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, together with the war industry agents and Zionist-controlled politicians, 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.
