Gay Sex Club Shooter Prayed in “Arabic” Before Opening Fire

Nothing Islamic to see here. But the uh Middle Eastern Organised Crime Squad in Australia is looking into it. Here’s how it happened.

A 52-year-old man was in the rear car park of Aarows, a 24-hour gay, bisexual and swingers club in Rydalmere, when at least two men shot him about 1am (AEST) on May 1.

Detectives from the Middle Eastern Organised Crime Squad continue to investigate the shooting.

They have released CCTV of the incident and video and audio taken from a van allegedly stolen before the shooting.

“One of the men can be heard reciting what’s believed to be a prayer in Arabic, asking for protection from being identified prior to the shooting,” police said in a statement.

The victim, identified only as Max, survived after being shot three times. The bullers narrowly missed his heart and spine.

Max, who was interviewed for the program, says of his terrifying ordeal: “God put his hand on me that night.”

He said he now suffers from terrible nightmares and confesses he is still in fear of his life after the incident.

Wanted presenter Neil Mercer said of the footage: “The vision is probably some of the most extraordinary I have ever seen. He gets shot first in the ankle, then he goes to the ground. You then see them actually catching up with him and you see them kicking and beating him. He then somehow drags himself up again and they continue to shoot. He is a very lucky bloke indeed.”

Police are baffled as to the motive of the attackers, who are of Middle Eastern appearance and are thought to be Muslim.

Utterly baffling. No one has any idea why Muslims would open fire outside a gay club. It’s not like they’re known for killing gay people.

And now a word from Piers Morgan on how no one gets shot in Australia because of gun control. Perhaps Piers should tell it to Max.

 

And perhaps the problem isn’t guns, but the sort of people who tend to recite prayers to Allah before opening fire or the sort of people who get bored all the time and start looking for someone to kill.

    Though I am reluctant to quote Hillary Clinton, I still must ask, “What difference does it make”? Homosexuals will still vote in huge majority for Pro-Islam lefties.

    • m4253y

      yup…you reap what you sew…

    • jude arsenault

      that is false.i am gay and i would not and logically why would any other gay person?

  • Stone

    this is likely to be a personal vendetta, or another form of targeted attack, otherwise there’d been a massacre. Blood feuds are part and parcel of Middle Eastern culture.

    So, yes, Max wasn’t shot randomly.

    • Moa

      False. A jihadi sees killing homosexuals, any homosexual, as part of the jihad will get them closer to paradise. See Sura 4:21 about hurting gays.

      Also see the cranes in Iran that routinely hang gays.

      I just don’t understand why you cannot accept that a devout Muslim follows the Quran and hadiths and persecutes homosexuals. Why is it so hard for you to accept the plain and obvious truth, Stone? Islam is evil in numerous ways. jihadis will kill and don’t need to have a “blood feud” of any kind. If you are a non-Muslim then you are an opponent of Islam and a jihadi is perfectly within Islamic law to kill you (or enslave you, as happens today in Sudan), or rapes you (yes, both men and women are raped by jihadis – it happened in my city in New Zealand!) if he has the chance.

      Why do you need to invent a fiction to defend Islam, Stone? why?

      • Twisk

        That is not true, Moa. A muslim WILL kill homosexuals, but only if they are Muslims, and even then… in France, there is an LGBT mosque that lives in peace and has not undergone any attacks or even outspoken criticism.
        All in all, Muslims do not give a hoot about “kuffar” homosexuals. They see the whole of Occident as debauched anyway…

        • Moa

          Lol. I cannot believe you are so badly informed. Really? You really believe that?

          Here is what is happening in France:

          http://www.infowars.com/photo-of-gay-man-who-walked-through-muslim-suburb-of-paris-with-boyfriend-causes-shock/

          This is happening all over Europe.

          But hey, you choose to see what you choose to see. Ignore the data that goes against your delusion.

          Let’s look at the facts of what happened in *this* incident in Australia.
          * Man caught on camera performing prayer in Arabic (which we presume is to Allah, but this is not stated – money has to be on that though).

          * Man shot three times by two assailants.

          I don’t live in Australia (instead, in nearby New Zealand). Apparently Sydney is having a mini Sunni-vs-Shia civil war from Lebanese immigrants living in Sydney. On a recent trip to Melbourne I was astounded by the number of Islamic recruiters (who all have the look of jihads – you know, fit, intense and spoiling for a fight) openly proselytizing all over the place.

          It is possible that the shot individual knew the assailants. However, it is more likely that someone decided to wage jihad on gays (as supported by Islamic doctrines).

          You can decide to believe that Islamists love homosexuals if you want. I don’t know if you are homosexual, but I would caution you if you ever visit a Muslim area you are more likely to end up like the dude in the link I posted than welcome to an Islamic Mardi Gras. Try visiting Iran or Gaza or the West Bank or Syria or Pakistan and telling them openly you are gay (of course, the Muslim World is full of duplicity and hypocracy – they are always looking for submissive partners – Filipinos in Saudi incessantly get propositioned, so I hear).

          Meanwhile, I’ll stay in the real world, thanks.

          • JOparis

            Moa: I live in France and I think it should be you that should just shut up if you don’t know what you are talking about, the guy in the picture was beatten by the asholes of LA MANIF POUR TOUS an homophobic CHRISTIAN WHITE UPPER CLASS assholes group and not by muslims. In Paris there are lot of “Beur parties” (arab in slang) where gays muslims goes party without being agressed. I’m not saying everything is perfect but you are just islamophobic, you should see a doctor because you are ill. Your comment is just a bunch of stupidities and your “real word” sucks and stinks.

          • Moa

            CHRISTIAN WHITE UPPER CLASS assholes group and not by muslims.”

            Thanks for the data, but Twisk below says you have it wrong. But I agree, unthinking Christians can be as bad as unthinking Muslims (although the former are much more rare around the globe).

            > “In Paris there are lot of “Beur parties” (arab in slang) where gays muslims goes party without being agressed.”

            That’s cool with me, mon ami. But it also happens because these are non-pious ‘cultural Muslims’. They are considered apostates by the ideology called Islam. They can also do it because the Republic still has secular laws. Consider what will happen to these same people in twenty years when Muslims are a majority in France and Sharia is in force. Do you think they will still be safe to flaunt their lifestyle choice?

            We’re trying to warn you what will happen to your friends. We don’t want harm to come to them – or anyone else.

            > “I’m not saying everything is perfect but you are just islamophobic, you should see a doctor because you are ill.”

            “Islamophobic” is a nonsense word made up by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation to stiffle legitimate debate about Islam and Sharia in Free Societies. Please don’t use this word – it has been thoroughly debunked as a false meme.

            > “Your comment is just a bunch of stupidities and your “real word” sucks and stinks.”

            The real world sucks. It wasn’t my doing. It was the jihadis and the theologians of Al Azhar who made it suck for Muslims and non-Muslims alike. Them, and thermodynamics :)

            I would like Islam to be a religion of peace. Really. The problem is, it simply isn’t. See the *facts* at
            religionofpeace.com
            and see what Muslims are doing to each other in the wide World outside your “Gay Paris”. Don’t tell me to behave (and certainly not to shut up! Free Speech is important). Tell your Muslims mates to behave – because their current actions around the World are disgraceful and dangerous to everyone.

          • jude arsenault

            no one said white christians are better

          • Twisk

            JOparis and Moa, you’re both wrong. This guy was strolling in the streets with his friend at three o’clock in the morning in a dangerous zone. He was attacked by street thugs for his money (something that could have happened to anyone under the same circumstances), and went straight to the media to make a “homophobic” attack out of what had happened. He is an LGBT activist… you know the truth is not always their forte.
            His story has long been debunked, since he claimed that the attackers had yelled “homosexuals, homosexuals!” before lunging at him and his boyfriend. I don’t need to tell you that’s impossible, as no hoodlum would use that kind of vocabulary. They use much more offensive slang terms!
            Moa, before you write that these thugs were Muslims, I hasten to add they are first and foremost delinquents. They’d beat and rob anyone, beginning with their own grandmas. There is no way anyone can prove any homophobia in this instance.

          • Moa

            If he was mugged, why was he brutally bashed as well. Do muggers in France also always bash their victims so brutally?

            > “He is an LGBT activist… you know the truth is not always their forte. ”

            Yeah, it’s a shame they can’t just tell the truth and insert their identity politics into everything. They get mugged in Paris just like everyone else. That’s true equality for ya.

            > “I don’t need to tell you that’s impossible, as no hoodlum would use that kind of vocabulary.”

            Agree.

            > “Moa, before you write that these thugs were Muslims, I hasten to add they are first and foremost delinquents. ”

            Fair enough. Look, I have no problem with Muslims (who are people, mostly good and occasionally bad like everyone else). I have a problem with the ideology called Islam and its associated jihadis – which is bad enough for non-Muslims and enslaves Muslims (go to thereligionofpeace.com and you’ll see the daily carnage, and most of the victims are unfortunate Muslims of other sects).

            Finally, my argument is that you don’t need to convince is Westeners that Islam should be peaceful, you need to convince those in Tehran, and Ryadh, and Aleppo, and Baghdad, and Islamabad, and Jakarta, and Cairo, and Mali, and Nigera. It is the pious Muslims you need to convince to be peaceful, because at the moment they are committing horrific crimes on their co-religionists and kufr alike – all with the sanction of their imams and the academics at Al Azhar university :)

          • Twisk

            Don’t misunderstand me, I have been a reader of thereligionofpeace.com (an other anti-jihad websites like the Robert Spencer one) for years. I am as worried about political islam as you are!

          • Moa

            Thanks for the clarification Twisk. I take your point and won’t use that particular example again.

            This is why, from the great Carl Sagan: “In science it often happens that scientists say, ‘You know that’s a really good argument; my position is mistaken,’ and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old
            view from them again. They really do it. It doesn’t happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion.”

            So I greatly appreciate you correcting me on the example I gave.

            > “I am as worried about political islam as you are.”
            Good man!

            I find it a great shame that the so called “Free World” is not struggling for Enlightenment Values for all – while the Egyptian military and people are showing us the way (which is, the Muslim Brotherhood can only be stopped by sheer force of will, unfortunately not by endless dialogue). The World has gone mad, IMHO.

            Pax.

            I’m ashamed of my country too, for the same reasons. I don’t know what’s happened. We’ve suddenly discovered that all the human rights “morals” they have been shoving down our throats for decades was baloney. Thankfully, save for some of their lobotomized followers, the people has the sense to see how crazy this all is, and I hope they’ll vote accordingly when the time comes.
            Otherwise, I’m not a man. And you too are a good guy.

          • Moa

            > Otherwise, I’m not a man.
            I considered that possibility :) Well, you have more guts (us Kiwis would say, “balls”) than most of the men posting on these forums.

            Kia Kaha!

            i see no reason to defend a religion,it’s just a (false) belief.especially islam regarding their homophobia.recently,an extremist muslim group tried to put on an event in Montréal sponsored by a university student muslim group and punishing gays,even by death,was on their agenda.There was a negative reaction from locals so the event was moved to a suburd,rather than them being stopped.we have come a long way in Canada with gay rights and there is no way I will passively sit by as some muslims try to take us back to the middle ages.I am aware that probably (hopefully?) the majority of muslims do not pose a threat.

          • jude arsenault

            i would like to add that as a gay person who has experienced homophobia my entire life,there is no reason whatsoever for me to respect any ideology that supports homophobia even if only passively.i strongly suspect that most religious people do not even have a clue of what their religion really is ie:muhammad’s 6 year old bride that he had sex with at age 9.

          • Moa

            Jude, you have to make the distinction between Muslims (people, good and bad like any other group) and Islam (the ideology).

            The problem is not with the people, it’s with Islam, the ideology. This preaches intolerance of homosexuals. What makes Islam so dangerous is that unlike Christianity (where God alone punishes sinners) in Islam it is the duty of every pious Muslim to punish sinners as well (followed by Allah punishing eternally in their superstition). This is why gays are handed from cranes in Iran and executed with swords in Saudi Arabia.

            While conservatives may or may not agree with your lifestyle choice, we disagree very very strongly with those who want to kill homosexuals for their choice. That’s why we’ll defend your right to a free life from the evil that is Islam.

        • Gee

          They will kill anybody for being gay, or Jewish, or Christian, or any other reason they can think up afterward.

          The truth is a Muslim will kill and leave it at that

          • Twisk

            This Paris street gangs are more onto selling dope and stealing handbags than Islam. They are not ideologues, just common criminals.

            They’ll kill for what’s in your pocket, that’s for sure. I’m not sure about any other motivations than plain greed.

        • 1stworlder

          That ignores the fact that chai boys exist for all of islam. Its ok to have sex with a boy too young to have body hair in islam but will stone to death 2 adult males who say they love each other.

    • defcon 4

      Do you have any evidence to support your assertion that this shooting was a “personal vendetta”? Or is this just another attempt at obfuscating another islamic atrocity?

  • http://islesofmyst.co.uk/ Raibeart MacIlleathain

    At least the bloke wasn’t tossed from the top floor of a 12-storey building for being gay. But, then again, the motives of those perpetrators in Amsterdam would have probably baffled police as well. No doubt they concluded the prank to have been another case of illegal dwarf tossing.

    • Jerry S.

      I doubt Detectives from the ‘Middle Eastern Organised Crime Squad’ are baffled as to the motives of these local Islamic Terrorists. If they really are so clueless, they should simply dissolve the squad.

      But that statement is more likely more ‘Spin’ from the leftist media.

  • Rantelo

    The Australians made a huge mistake allowing the Mohammedans in en masse. They could have made it easier for Europeans to settle there, but instead their silly rules have meant that now Oz is full of the detritus of the third world, include large contingents of hostile sullen Mohammedans.
    Unfortunately, you cannot cure stupidity…

    What about make believe demographics like peaceful muslims?

  • 1stworlder

    Looked around for any leftist or gay links to this shooting of gays by muslims and nothing. I guess it doesn’t fit the narrative. The San Francisco Gate acted like who beats up gays & Asians is a “dirty little secrete” that would be everyone’ first guess.
