The shooter who killed 50 Americans at an LGBT nightclub in Orlando was identified as 29 year old Omar Mateen who was of Afghan origin. The shooting is being investigated as a terrorist attack. However, it’s unknown if it is either a domestic or international attack. But it certainly begs a few questions. If it was an act of international terror it would certainly make sense because Islamic jihadists are rampantly homophobic. Now a very revealing video has shed some light on the situation.
Sheikh Farrokh Sekaleshfar was invited to speak at the Husseini Islamic Center Mosque in Sanford, Florida in 2013. The doctor stated that killing gay people was the compassionate thing to do because, “death is the sentence. We know there’s nothing to be embarrassed about this, death is the sentence … We have to have that compassion for people, with homosexuals, it’s the same, out of compassion, let’s get rid of them now.”
This man is considered a foremost expert on Islamic law. His statements are certainly not to be ignored. The law if Islam also calls for the death of blasphemers and apostates. So does the doctor endorse this as well? The leaders of the Husseini Islamic Center Mosque didn’t condemn the doctors words. Silence certainly seems to be consent.
Did these doctors words influence the Orlando shooter? Or do his words just embody a greater philosophy that these radical sects of Islam abide by? Either way it is clear that this dangerous ideology is being past around by very perilous people.
I think the “compassionate” thing to do is to prosecute these radical animals to the fullest extent of the law.
