Muslims and Leftists are furious today that some people have been asking about mass murdering pilot Andreas Lubitz’s religion — as if it is offensive on its face even to inquire whether or not Lubitz was killing for Islam and jihad. After all, who ever heard of anyone doing that? In any case, even if Lubitz was not Muslim, some Muslims and supporters of the Islamic State are hailing him as a hero of the Islamic State anyway. He did, after all, murder over 150 people. What else makes you a hero of the Islamic State?
“Germanwings co-pilot Andreas Lubitz called ‘a hero’ in sick Facebook tribute page,” by Anthony Bond, Mirror, March 26, 2015:
A sick Facebook tribute page calling the Germanwings co-pilot who deliberately crashed a plane into the French Alps ‘a hero’ has been set up.
The page – called Andreas Lubitz, world champion in Flight Simulator – was set up after officials confirmed he had flown his plane into the mountains.
One post claims to be from ISIS calling the pilot ‘the French hero’.
It reads: “OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE : The Islamic State apologizes for misspelling in the title of the page and take the opportunity to remind you that the French hero is always spelled with an s .
“The community manager was removed from office and will be beheaded to serve as a lesson.”
Another post says “Already a lot of messages of support for our hero . Thank you all .”
Officials today said Andreas Lubitz locked himself into the cockpit before smashing the plane into mountains.
The dramatic revelations have horrified people in the German town of Montabaur who said Mr Lubitz had showed no signs of depression when they saw him last.
Peter Ruecker, a member of a glider club who watched him learn to fly, said: “He was happy he had the job with Germanwings and he was doing well. He gave off a good feeling.”
Mr Lubitz had obtained his glider pilot’s licence as a teenager and was accepted as a Lufthansa pilot trainee after finishing a tough German college preparatory school, Mr Ruecker said.
He described the co-pilot as a “rather quiet” but friendly young man.
Mr Ruecker was a member of the LSC Westerwald flying club in Montabaur.
The club has paid tribute to him, saying: “With great dismay, the members of the LSC Westerwald e.V have heard of the crash of Germanwings flight 4U9525. With horror we acknowledge that among the dead is a longtime member of our association.
“Andreas died as First Officer on the tragic flight.”
It emerged today that passengers on the doomed Germanwings plane only knew they were about to die in the terrifying seconds before it crashed into the French Alps….
