ISIS claims responsibility for Orlando mass shooting – affiliated agency

RT

Amaq News, a Syrian news agency with close ties to the Islamic State, says the group is responsible for the attack on an Orlando gay club, which has killed 50 people, and left 53 injured.

“The armed attack that targeted a gay night club in the city of Orlando in the American state of Florida which left over 100 people dead or injured was carried out by an Islamic State fighter,” Amaq said.

“That has not been confirmed. We’ll have to see what those connections are once we get the details,” said Florida Senator Bill Nelson.

FBI have also stated Omar Mateen, had proclaimed his loyalty to Islamic State in a 911 call, and mentioned the Tsarnaev brothers, who bombed the Boston Marathon in 2013.

The agency revealed that Mateen had been investigated in 2013, and 2014, over alleged social media threats and contacts with “a known suicide bomber”, but that no charges had been brought forward, due to lack of evidence of any wrongdoing.

Last month, the Islamic State spokesman urged Western-based jihadists to execute attacks during holy month of Ramadan, which is now ongoing, “to punish the Crusaders” in a widely-distributed audio tape.

Mateen, a 29-year-old Muslim US citizen, who was brought up by a family of first-generation Afghan immigrants.

Earlier, Mateen’s father, Mir Seddique, claimed the mass shooting, the worst in US history, had “nothing to do with religion,” and speculated that it was caused by his son’s dislike of public displays of homosexuality.

  1. How convenient. “Let’s say he called us in the middle of the shooting spree to declare his allegiance to ISIS”. “Yep, that’ll work, we can tie Islamic Terrorism with this tragedy.” “Never let a good crisis go to waste.”

    Crock of Shit!

    Now, new “protections” will be legislated to protect gays.

    “He’s so gay he deserves to be treated special.” “We must protect gaydom from normal people.” “Yes, normal people are the problem.”

    What a F’ed up world we live in.

    1. Nice find, tc. G4s global security is a u.s based company which sold off it’s isn’t-real branch due to BDS probably in April 2016. Scathing statement by zio-joo leadership of that shite company regarding it’s reaction to the sanctions. BDS’g those f’g kikes into financial hardship is a start and they better hope they’re completely obscure when it comes time for them to get what they truly deserve!

    2. According to the link that tc just posted:

      “Twenty minutes into the attack, the 29-year-old shooter called 911 and pledged allegiance to Islamic State.”

      So I’m supposed to believe that this guy waited 20 minutes and then decides to call 911 (because all shooters or crazed murders call the police while they are killing people rather than try to hide. 🙄 )?

      And then I’m supposed to also believe after waiting 20 minutes that the shooter all of a sudden makes sure he tells everyone on the phone and in the club that he pledges allegiance to the Islamic State when he could have said it way beforehand, almost as if calling 911 and telling them that was a code phrase or something for them to go in and kill him.

      Unfrigginbelievable……….

  2. Yea. So Obama’s pet-terrorists traveled 8000 miles to yet another nightclub to shoot up, YET NEVER CROSSES THE BORDER TO ISRAEL, OR EVER ATTACKS A POLITICIAN.

    My…..How very interesting.

  3. ISIS was responsible………that is what I thought as soon as I heard of this outrage.

    ISIS…………….I$RAELI $ecret “intelligence” serVICE.
