Imam Speaking in Orlando Said Gays Must Be Killed Out of ‘Compassion’

Omar Mateen of Port Saint Lucie, Florida, came to the attention of federal authorities twice prior to being identified as the gunman in the Orlando nightclub mass shooting, a senior law enforcement source told The Daily Beast.

This is not the first time that the gay community has been targeted by would-be jihadists.

In fact, an imam speaking in Orlando in April said that killing gays according to Islamic law should be done “out of compassion”.
