Terrorists targeted celebrations of Pride Month -threatening
participants in Turkey and Ramallah until they cancelled
them, and perpetrating a mass shooting in Norway! Why?
You might ask. Well, the history goes back to Muhammad
and his recommended punishment for homosexual activity.
Chanting “Allahu Akbar” and showing frightening videos,
they intimidated students at Istanbul University into
cancelling their LGBT+ picnic. In Ramallah, the son of a
prominent preacher from the terror group Hamas, posted
a video on social media warning people arriving at a
concert hall, that the star singer-songwriter about to
perform is banned because he’s gay.

In Oslo, Norway, just hours before the Pride Parade was
about to begin, Zaniar Matapour, a 42-year-old Iranian
refugee, who’d come to Norway at age 12, began a
shooting rampage. He targeted three gay sites, notably
the London Pub. He shouted “Allahu Akbar” as he started
shooting and left a trail of 2 dead and over 21 injured.

Matapour is a fascinating guy. You will hear his life story,
which includes mental illness, and many run ins with the
law, for which he was hardly punished. Most interesting,
are his connections to terrorists and ISIS. Not unlike many
other lone wolves, Matapour had been on Norway’s
counterterrorism radar until they let them fall through
the cracks. Now the authorities are investigating to see
what they missed, trying to determine whether this was:
a terror attack, a hate crime, a result of his mental illness,
or all of the above. Indeed, having much similarity to
Omar Mateen’s attack on the Pulse Nightclub, it may have
been a copycat crime!
