Brazil school shootings: Shooter's "references to Islamic fundamentalism", "got closer to Islam"
McClatchy-Tribune ^

Posted on 04/08/2011 4:42:50 AM PDT by quesney

RIO DE JANEIRO—At least 11 people, mostly children, died Thursday and more that 15 were wounded when an armed man attacked a school in Realengo in the poor suburbs of Rio de Janeiro.

Police initially said that 13 people had died, but Rio de Janeiro’s Health Ministry later lowered the death toll.

[...]

Police Col. Djalma Beltrami said the killer used two handguns and a lot of ammunition. The suspect left behind a letter, in which he anticipated committing suicide after the attack. Beltrami, however, gave no details of any possible motive.

Beltrami described the letter as “the words of a person who no longer believes in anything, full of sentences that made no sense and references to Islamic fundamentalism.”

[...]

Roselane de Oliveira, a sister of the attacker, told Rio de Janeiro radio station Band News that the young man “was very strange.”

“He had no friends, and he spent all his time on the internet,” she said.

In recent months, she said, he appeared to have got closer to Islam.

Police stressed, however, that there was no concrete evidence that the attack had either a religious or a political motive.

Just another isolated “Allahu Akbar” incident that has nothing to do with Islam. Move along now.

Now that islamo-kooks are targeting South America, they have finally completed their goal of spreading the love inherent in the “Religion of Peace” TM around the entire globe. The crazy-mos are equal opportunty terrorists. They are prepared to murder young and old; men and women; Christian, Jew, Buddhist, animists, atheists, agnostics; socialists, capitalists and communists; white, black, brown, yellow, red; American, English, Australian, Canadian, German, Italian, French, Spanish, Russian, Chinese, Malaysian, Thai, Filipino, Arabic, Brazilian, etc., etc., etc. Look for armed conflict in the word and there’s a 95% that muslims are part of it.

It’s funny you never see one of these Islam guys walk into a police station or a gun shop and try to commit mass murders. No they pick schools with little kids and people that are unarmed. I think if you want to look like a soldier of Islam at least do it with dignaty and quit trying to prey on the helpless. They should try attacking people that are actually armed and have the abilty to fight back...but I guess in that instance they would get there arses whipped every time :)

Got to be the least self-confident belief system in the history of mankind.

Laugh at its founder in a cartoon, and they’ll kill you.

Burn its founding text, and they’ll kill you.

Leave the fold, and they’ll kill you.

Reminds me of that wonderful Rory Breaker threat to Nick the Greek: “If you hold back anything, I’ll kill ya. If you bend the truth or I think you’re bending the truth, I’ll kill ya. If you forget anything, I’ll kill ya. In fact, you’re gonna have to work very hard to stay alive, Nick. Now, do you understand everything I’ve just said? ‘Cause if you don’t, I’ll kill ya!”

We won’t do it, (permanently take out two of the “pillars”), but I can think of a few countries with missiles and/or attack jets that would in a heartbeat in retaliation.

The Crusaders could never reach mecca. But lots of modern weapons can.

And there cannot be islam with only three pillars left. Impossilbe.

It’s a “perfectionist” belief system. The Koran is the perfectly transcribed word of allah. Mohammed was the perfect man, etc. It cannot bend or adapt. It attacks and kills, or it withers and stagnates, but it cannot survive a challenge to its perfectionism.

If the black moon rock turned into a vast crater, islam would be finished just as completely as the aztec and inca religions when the Spanish killed their “living gods.”

He committed suicide, not martyrdom, therefore he’s just dead with no virgins. But as a consolation prize he may get a bag-o-raisins...............

As usual, the government is quick to deny that religious (Islamic) motivation was a factor. If they had found so much as a certificate from Vacation Bible School in his closet, they’d be trumpeting “Right Wing Christian Extremist Wages Holy War on Children”.

The news yesterday said his letter stated he was HIV positive, so he either had a least one friend or used dirty needles.

twelvers are increasingly trying to dominate the muslim world. They are shoving saudi arabia OUT of the catbird seat...and waiting for the mahdi, whom they think is very near. They have the reins in egypt, tunisia, gaining in yemen, Bahrain, have lebanon, gaza, turkey, going for syria and iraq...and pushng HARD in saudi arabia.
This morning in iraq, the iraqi army massacred iranian dissidents in Camp Ashraf in Diyala. Next will be the Kurds.

Well said.

Let's just pray it's sooner, rather than later - the day they actually try a nuke, is the day they're finally dragged from their houses and holes and wiped out. But I really don't want to see it taking a nuke to wake everyone up.
