Imam murder in NYC linked to Latino gang “turf war”, not “Islamophobia”

It seems that the murder of a New York City imam and his companion on Saturday August 14 was not a "Trump-inspired" "hate crime," but payback in an ongoing "turf war" between Latin Americans and Muslims in Queens.

From the New York Daily News:

Suspected shooter in Queens slaying of Imam and friend taken into police custody, may have been settling score in Muslim-Hispanic feud. [...] 

Sources pointed to an ongoing feud between Muslims and Hispanics in the neighborhood, saying the shooting may have been payback after a group of Muslims allegedly attacked some Hispanics a few weeks earlier.

Despite this, Islamic demonstrations demanding revenge for a "hate crime" continued near the mosque.

Euronews grabbed on to the "hate crime" angle and brought Donald Trump's name into story.

The NYC police, however, stated that there was no hate-crime component to the murder as far as they could see:

Charges have now been laid against an Hispanic male:

New York police have charged a man with murder in connection with the killing of an imam and an aide on Saturday.

Oscar Morel, 35, was also charged with criminal possession of a weapon.

Imam Maulama Akonjee, 55, and Thara Uddin, 64, were shot in the head as they were walking after prayers in the borough of Queens.

Some mosque-goers suggested it was a hate crime, but police said there was no evidence so far that the men had been targeted because of their faith. 

Following the shooting, New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio said Muslims were living "in the perpetual crosshairs of bigotry."

Geez… I wonder if that gun was registered..
Of course not… but it’s very convenient and hypocritical for the media not to support good citizen ownership.

Paul Maurice…

Wake up… No they don’t..!!!
.The only lives that matter are the people who speak out against violence in spite of their skin color or religion.. and assimilate into the gentle culture that nurtures and Secours them..
Islam and branches of Islam like black lives matter is controlled by Islam from the top down, they cease to become important because of militant activity and degrading races of other color because it seems that this is what it’s all about is color.

Apparently whenever a Muslim gets murdered by anyone other than another Muslim, it’s always a hate crime but never the other way around. Sort of like blacks being incapable of being racist.

Welcome to the world of gangs, the other gangs hit back. Sorry the MSM and the left wing politicians cannot change that for you. But take solace in the fact you are higher on the politically correct ladder than the Hispanics.

The left wing media must put their spin on every event and it must be done as soon as possible before the real truth comes out which is not likely to agree with their agenda. The vast majority of the great unwashed simply believe the first thing they are told so the real truth, when it comes out, won’t even register.

Holy Mohammed! Let’s not get a “Muslim Lives Matter” in the manner of “Black Lives Matter” or our streets will be flowing with innocent civilized blood and our cities will be plagued with violence, destruction, looting, lawlessness, and utter anarchy.

The hate crimes (of unthinkable brutality and violence) committed by Muslims is astounding! And this was not even a “hate crime” per se, but a violent crime committed by Latinos in an ongoing Muslim-Latino dispute.
How much more peaceful and civilized our world would be without Islam.

Don’t see that same reaction when it a non muslim killed by a muslim.People are awakening slowly only going to get worse.

They had better not mess with the Latinos, soccer and religion mean a lot to them, muzzies might not like the response they get.

Muslims are living “in the perpetual crosshairs of bigotry”? Ah, what about the rest of us? What about all the threats against anyone not Muslim? What about all the calls for death to the West by local Imans? What about all the random attacks by Muslims? What about all the orders in the Koran to kill, lie, plot and plan, deceive all non-Muslims? What about Islam’s master plan to overthrow the world and either enslave or kill all non-believers?

Aren’t all non-Muslims in the perpetual crosshairs of Muslim bigotry?

Thomas Pratt…..exactly, immigration without assimilation is simply an invasion. I say fit in or fuck off.

Islamists demanding Justice for slain fellow Muslim!
Guess what if this idiot was not involved in illegal drug activity than he would be alive today.

Yes! Muslim lives matter, but a drug dealer’s life is a life wasted.

When you lie down with dogs, you shall get up with fleas!

Second point: What about the lives of the 1000’s of innocent people killed during 911. What about justice for them.

You Muslims have been granted asylum to live in North America! Be grateful; obey our laws or go back where you came from!

Oh, how the media loves to rush to judgment before all the facts of the case are laid bare! Pointing fingers, making unfounded allegations, using it as a political issue, etc. We have witnessed this with the mainstream media in Canada, time after time. That, an attempting to cover up an issue!

The mayor and the disgusting leftist ilk like him are the problem in society today.

There is no such thing as “Islamophobia”.

There is only fear of reality.
commented 2016-08-16 10:53:23 -0400
The media is the message and that makes the media the problem.
commented 2016-08-16 10:35:06 -0400
As an alternate theory, could this be the reverse of what normally happens when a muslim kills an infidel. The police and media usually run around furiously trying to cover it up and white wash the incident as having nothing to do with a radical muslim attack, only in reverse? In any case, the mayor and police need to have a meeting to get their propaganda strategy on the same channel and frequency.
commented 2016-08-16 10:05:17 -0400
Ndp sucks, my point exactly, I imagine 99% of the time a bullet to the head means that you hate that person. How come when a Muslim kills a non Muslim it’s not called a “hate crime”. Trust the bought and paid for media to include Trump for this. Pathetic. THE MEDIA IS THE PROBLEM!!!!!!
commented 2016-08-16 09:48:13 -0400
That last line definitely caught my eye.

Mayor De Blasio said Muslims were living “in the perpetual crosshairs of bigotry.” The NYC police however, had issued with its initial press release that there was no hate-crime component to the murder as far as they could see.

Well it seems the police and mayor are not on the same page. De Blasio has things a little backward. It is the violent muslims who have infidels in perpetual crosshairs. The police statement is a little confusing also. I mean if shooting somebody in the head isn’t hateful, then what does qualify as hate. Is New York starting to slide into the dumpster like Chicago?
