Yet another convert to Islam misunderstands his new religion and gets the crazy idea that it has something to do with violence against unbelievers. If only Barack Obama or John Kerry had been around to set him straight.
“Canadian Michael Zehaf-Bibeau thought to be the gunman in Ottawa shooting,” Sydney Morning Herald, October 23, 2014:
The man behind the Ottawa shootings is a Canadian convert to Islam whose passport had been seized by authorities, federal sources say.
While police have not confirmed the man’s identity, sources have told Canada’s Globe And Mail, Reuters and Associated Press that the main suspect was Michael Zehaf-Bibeau.
Just before 10am on Wednesday local time (1am AEDT Thursday), a gunman shot and killed Corporal Nathan Cirillo and then opened fire on the country’s Parliament buildings.
Sergeant-at-Arms Kevin Vickers, a former member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, shot the suspect dead.
The suspected gunman, Zehaf-Bibeau, 23, was reportedly born Michael Joseph Hall but changed his name, sources said.
The Globe and Mail newspaper said he was recently designated a “high-risk traveller” by the Canadian government – meaning it was feared he would travel abroad to commit crimes – and that his passport had been seized.
Zehaf-Bibeau had a history of drug use and had multiple run-ins with Canadian police in the French-speaking province of Quebec.
Authorities have not yet ruled out the possibility that there are other shooters still on the loose….
