Everything is connected.
After the Hamas massacre of Israeli children, the media chose to amplify fake news about a landlord-tenant dispute in Chicago in which the landlord allegedly stabbed a female Muslim tenant and her son. Even though the landlord is an American Polish Catholic who has nothing to do with Jews or Israel, the media, Islamist groups and the Biden White House all blew up the story and tried to connect it to the war in Israel based on, apparently, the mother’s word.
Well, fake news has very real consequences.
Abdesalem Lassoued opened fire on a group of Swedish football fans in a taxi last night as they passed through Boulevard d’Ypres just a few minutes north of the city’s famous Grand Plaza ahead of Belgium’s Euro 2024 qualifier against Sweden.
Several people fled into an apartment building after hearing the gunshots, but Lassoued followed them and opened fire again in the entrance hall in an attack he said was to avenge the killing of a six-year-old US-Palestinian boy.
Disturbing video taken by passers-by purportedly shows the attacker on a motorbike stalking people and shooting them in public, with other images circulating online showing the body of one person inside a taxi.
Following the incident the alleged attacker used the name ‘Slayem Slouma’ to boast about the two murders on Facebook, adding he sought to avenge the killing of a six-year-old US-Palestinian boy.
Speaking in Arabic in the video, Lassoued celebrated the slaughter, and said he ‘was inspired by the Islamic State’ terror group, prosecutors said.
According to a media transcript of the video message recorded by the self-declared perpetrator, he said:
‘Islamic greeting Allahu Akbar. My name is Abdesalem Al Guilani and I am a fighter for Allah. I am from the Islamic State… We live for our religion and we die for our religion. Alhamdulah. Your brother took revenge in the name of Muslims. I have killed three Swedes so far Al hamdoulelah. Three Swedish, yes.’
Justice Minister Vincent Van Quickenborn said Lassoued, an asylum seeker, was convicted in Tunisia ‘for common law offences’, but was not reported for a terrorist risk.
Of course he was. Many of the Islamic terrorist attacks in Europe were carried out by illegal alien asylum seekers.
Abdesalem Lassoued would have carried out an attack at some point anyway. He obviously had weapons and a plan, and didn’t just strike out at the spur of the moment. But media fake news about the Chicago stabbing gave him material to work with.
The media constantly lies about Israel in order to aid Islamic terrorists. This time it had consequences beyond Israel.
