FBI claims to have suspect in shooting…

MERIDEN, Connecticut — On the same day Gov. Dannel P. Malloy visited Baitul Aman mosque to offer support, a local official reassured the public that police have a suspect in the recent shooting that left the mosque’s wall riddled with bullet holes.
No one was injured in the shooting, which occurred sometime over the weekend that followed the Nov. 13 terrorist attacks in Paris. The FBI was called in to investigate.
Kevin Scarpati, chairman of the city council’s public safety committee and mayor-elect, said Friday that police Chief Jeffry Cossette told him authorities have a suspect. Cossette could not be reached for comment, but the FBI issued a statement.
“As a result of our ongoing investigation, we believe that this was an isolated incident and there is no outstanding threat to the community associated with the shooting,” Marybeth Miklos, spokeswoman for the FBI in New Haven, said in a news release. “The criminal investigation into this incident is ongoing,”
When asked to confirm Scarpati’s statements, Miklos said, “We have no further comment beyond our released statement.”
Gov. Malloy visited the mosque Friday afternoon shortly after a prayer service.
“It’s a great honor to be with you, I wish it was under different circumstances,” Malloy said. “I just really wanted to pay my respects, tell you that I stand with you.”
Regional Imam Hamid Malik said there were not regular prayer services on Saturday, Nov. 14, because most members were in New York for the third annual “Holy Quran and Science” symposium.
When members returned to the mosque to pray Sunday evening, they found four bullet holes in the wall next to the prayer hall. One bullet had struck the mosque’s concrete foundation, two more traveled through an outer wall, and a fourth pierced both exterior walls and an interior partition. The shots were fired from the direction of Main Street.
Malloy told the mosque’s members that “right-thinking Americans don’t support this kind of behavior,” but “I think Americans also, particularly the most ignorant among us, tend not to understand even the most basic differences in Islam,” Malloy said. “Quite frankly, if you were present in Syria or Iraq, you would be potentially victims based on your beliefs.”
Baitul Aman mosque is part of the Ahmadiyya Muslim community, an Islamic sect founded by Mirza Ghulam Ahmad in 1889. Ghulam Ahmad instituted nonviolent “jihad of the pen,” and is considered to be the messiah by followers. But that belief is heresy to other Muslim sects who persecute Ahmadis, Imam Malik said.
Malik said his father’s cousin was one of 90 killed in an attack on Ahmadi mosques in Pakistan in 2010, and Pakistan and other countries openly condemn Ahmadis as not being true Muslims.
Mohammed Qureshi, president of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community of Connecticut, thanked local police who responded “within 15 minutes” Sunday and investigated through the night.
During Friday’s prayer service, Imam Malik recited a verse from the Quran that says whenever someone kills a person, “it shall be as if he had killed all of mankind.”
Following the service, Salaam Bhatti, deputy spokesperson for the Ahmadiyya Muslim community, encouraged members to resist the fear that the Islamic State group and domestic terrorists are trying to instill.
“Do not retreat into your homes. Do not lock the doors of your mosques. Because if you do that, you are letting the terrorists write the narrative of Islam,” Bhatti said.
Many Muslims who attend Baitul Aman mosque emigrated from across the globe, some as refugees and asylum-seekers.
Members thanked Malloy for his willingness to accept Syrian refugees in Connecticut. Malloy has been vocal in that recent debate, and outside the mosque, he said many who oppose gun control legislation after a mass shooting are the same politicians calling for Muslims to be listed on a national registry and for refugees to be kept out of the country.
“I think there’s this double standard, [a] sick double standard,” Malloy said.
He said government reports show people on the terrorism watch list were able to legally purchase firearms, and “the same governors who are saying we should stop people at state borders and national borders are the same governors who give in to the NRA and should take some amount of personal responsibility for 2,043 people who are on the American terrorism watch list, having allowed them to buy guns.”
Zainab Danquah, 31, of Manchester, came to the area from Ghana a year ago, and Ayesha Kusi, 48, of Waterbury, also moved from Ghana 12 years ago.
Both said they were shocked and afraid by the shooting at the mosque, and had not experienced anything like it in Ghana. But the fear had dissipated by the end of Friday’s service.
“I feel comfortable, I feel OK,” Danquah said.
Shihida Ahmad, 46, of North Haven, said the mosque brings members together from all over the state and as far away as Massachusetts.
“I felt like that bullet touched my heart,” after the shooting, said Ahmad, who is assistant president of the mosque’s women’s auxiliary.
But the support the mosque has received from the community, “means a lot, tears are coming from my eyes,” Ahmad said. “We got some pain and then this is the healing part … we’ll come here to pray no matter what happens.”
When asked what she would say to the gunman, Ahmad replied, “I would say come to our mosque and experience our love for all and hatred for none.”
Eamon Virk, 30, of West Hartford, said she felt it was important to attend Friday’s prayer service with her two children, ages 7 and 4. Virk is regional president of the women’s auxiliary and her husband is ESPN anchor Adnan Virk, the first Muslim host hired by that network.
Virk said she has not discussed the shooting with her children, and she was initially apprehensive about returning to the mosque.
But, “I said I’m going to take them. They need to see the support our community gives to us,” Virk said. “Today I think everybody showed solidarity and came together.”
Baitul Aman mosque is holding an open house for the public Saturday, Nov. 21, from 2 to 4 p.m. The mosque is at 410 Main St. in Meriden.

Daniel Psenny recorded the video from his apartment window as victims poured out of the Paris concert hall. Gunfire can be heard from inside. Some of the victims collapse outside the door, and remain motionless throughout the video. Another victim is dragged down the alleyway by a friend. At lest two people can be seen hanging from second-floor windows.
Sporadic gunfire can be heard as the victims leave the building.
Psenny was later shot in the arm while trying to rescue wounded victims, he told Le Monde. He said the bullet was fired from a window.
He told the newspaper he was watching TV and heard what he thought was firecrackers. At first he thought it was coming from the TV. He then saw people leaving the Bataclan, with “all the world” running from the building. He said he saw blood and a woman clinging from the window, and thought of the images of the September 11 attacks.

After filming for a few minutes, he went downstairs to help someone who had collapsed in the alley. He was then shot.
He said the victim he rescued was American, and had been shot in the leg. The other man vomited and was cold. Psenny wrapped the man’s leg in a tourniquet and they waited until police raided the building.
According to CNN, at least 100 people were killed inside the theater, where multiple gunmen opened fire, through grenades into the crowd and then took hostages, killing victims one by one until police officers stormed the building. The attackers then detonated suicide vests, killing themselves.
The Bataclan theater has a capacity of 1,500 people and was said to be sold out. Concertgoers posted photos from inside the venue before the shooting began:
The victims at the Bataclan theater were watching a concert by the American band Eagles of Metal.
Here is a video of the shoot-out between police and terrorists outside the Bataclan Theatre:

Young European Girls are Being Gang-Raped by Muslim Immigrants From Germany, to Sweden, to Norway, to the UK…and WHERE IS THEIR JUSTICE?

A nineteen year-old girl at Magdeburg University became the fourth gang rape victim by refugees this month.
The German woman was ambushed by “refugees” around 4 AM and brutally raped. She is currently recovering in a local hospital.
No matter if you’re young or old, the climate is getting worse and worse in Magdeburg, a city filled with migrants.
Three people were arrested in the vicinity of the gang rape.
Early in October a 24 year-old woman was brutally gang-raped in a Magdeburg cemetery. Two weeks ago two 19 year-old girls were gang-raped by “refugees.”
The locals are worried.
But Merkel will send them a few more thousand migrants anyway.

Either These Girls Will Receive Justice From the Courts…
WE WILL CLAIM THEIR JUSTICE on the STREETS!
..and VERY SOON!
“Amputate Their Hands In Recompense For What They Committed”

A new video purportedly released by the Islamic State shows the sharia law practice of cutting off the hands of individuals accused of stealing. The video is “Amputate Their Hands In Recompense For What They Committed” and is alleged to have been in “Wilayat Homs”, a city in western Syria currently occupied by the Islamic State. The video was released November 7, 2015.
Stealing is considered a “hudud” crime in sharia law, meaning it’s considered a “crime against God” with a strict, fixed punishment. The punishment is drawn from the Q’uran 5:30:
[As for] the thief, the male and the female, amputate their hands in recompense for what they committed as a deterrent [punishment] from Allah . And Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise.
Viewer discretion is advised.
