To the disappointment of Zionists in the US Media and Politics, Dallas College Shooter Is Not a Muslim

May 4, 2017

 5,014 Americans Killed, 9,893 Injured by Other Americans, in Gun Violence During the First Four Months of 2017

 

Al-Jazeerah Editor's Note:

To the disappointment of Zionists in the Media and Politics, Dallas College Shooter Is Not a Muslim.

If he was a Muslim, then all Zionist media outlets (FOX, CNN, CNBC, etc.) would air continuous coverage about the shooter, pointing to his/her religion. However, because the shooter is not a Muslim, there's no mention of the shooting in the first place. No politicians or counter-terrorism experts are invited to highlight the importance of of the US wars on the Middle East and of increasing belligerence and defense spending at home.

So far, during the first four months of 2017, (until May 3), there were 5,014 Americans who were killed and 9,893 who were injured by other Americans, in 20,465 incidents of gun violence, including 119 mass shootings, according to http://www.gunviolencearchive.org/.

Two dead, including suspect in Dallas-area college shooting

AUSTIN, Texas, May 3, 2017 (Reuters) -

A gunman on Wednesday shot and killed a woman on a college campus in the Dallas area, before committing suicide, police said, two days after a deadly stabbing at another college in Texas.

Adrian Victor Torres, 21, shot and killed Janeera Nickol Gonzalez, 20, in a common study area at North Lake College in Irving, before taking his own life in a locker room shower in a nearby building, the Irving Police Department said.

"It is unclear at this time if there was a prior connection between the victim and suspect," it said in a statement.

Local news showed video footage of students running out of school buildings, located about 10 miles (16 km) west of downtown Dallas, at about 11:30 a.m., as police swarmed the campus.

Gonzalez's mother Lucia told an ABC affiliate that Torres "had been stalking her for quite a while but she didn't make anything of it."

The family told the WFAA that the two never dated and were not friends. Gonzalez was studying kinesiology and planned to graduate in a few weeks.

"There is no justice for my daughter," Gonzalez said.

College officials announced the school would be closed for the rest of the week.

On Monday, a man enrolled at the University of Texas went on a stabbing spree with a large hunting knife at the school's Austin campus about 200 miles (320 km) south of Irving, killing one student and wounding three, police said.

American Gun Violence Holocaust:

During the first four months of 2017, (until May 3),

5,014 Americans Killed, 9,893 Injured by Other Americans, in 20,465 Incidents of Gun violence, Including 119 Mass Shooting, 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.
