This article describes Omar El-Hussein only as a “22-year-old, Danish-born man.” His identity, however, comes from the newspapers, as “police have not yet released information on the identity or motives of the attacker.” He didn’t commit these murders because he is 22, or because he was born in Denmark. He committed them because he was Muslim, and believed that people who drew cartoons of Muhammad were blasphemers who deserved to be killed, that killing Jews could hasten the coming of the End Times, as per this hadith: “Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him; but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews.” (Sahih Muslim 6985)
But authorities in Denmark aren’t willing to acknowledge any of this, and so they won’t be able to do anything to prevent it.
“Police raid internet cafe in major Copenhagen operation,” Times of Israel, February 15, 2015 (thanks to Jerk Chicken):
COPENHAGEN, Denmark — Armed Danish police on Sunday raided an Internet cafe in a major operation in Copenhagen near the spot where officers killed the suspected gunman behind fatal shootings, local media said.
TV2, which reported from the scene, showed footage of armed officers in dark uniforms outside the Internet cafe and said at least two people had been taken away by police.
“It’s part of our investigation,” a police official told broadcaster DR.
The swoop came hours after police told reporters they were carrying out searches in several parts of the Danish capital.
The weekend shootings — one targeting a meeting on freedom of expression, the other the city’s main synagogue — have come as a shock to Denmark, which has so far escaped any major acts of terror.
Copenhagen police said Sunday that the two recent shootings in the Danish capital were carried out by a gunman who may have been influenced by last month’s Paris terror attacks at the headquarters of the satirical Charlie Hebdo magazine and at the Hyper Cacher supermarket.
The suspect on Sunday was identified in several Danish media outlets as Omar El-Hussein. Ekstra-Bladet, a Danish tabloid, reported that the 22-year-old, Danish-born man was released from jail only two weeks ago after serving a term for aggravated assault….
Police have not yet released information on the identity or motives of the attacker.
