Canadian PM ignores Islamic identity of Orlando shooter

Justin Trudeau’s condemnation of the attack on a gay club in Florida ignores the killer being a devout Muslim.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau issued an official statement condemning the “mass shooting” in Orlando, but avoided mentioning the fact that the terrorist was a devout Muslim who apparently has ties to terrorist organizations.

29-year-old Omar Mateen, an American citizen whose parents are from Afghanistan, wielded an assault-type rifle and a handgun as he opened fire inside a crowded gay nightclub, killing 50 and wounding 53 others.
