Pulse Nightclub Terror Attack: More Hatred and Violence

candles-492171_640
My heart goes out to the victims and their families.

Just two days ago, I wrote about the scores of people killed in terror attacks over the past week, including the four murdered in Tel Aviv and 19 Yazidi women burned alive. Hatred breeds hatred, I wrote in Hatred and Violence in One Week’s Time. Never could I have imagined that two days later we’d experience what is simultaneously the deadliest terror attack on US soil since 9/11 and the worst mass shooting in US history.

At this time 50 are reported dead with 53 more hospitalized. We all know how this could go. The death toll may very well rise.

It is both an Islamic terror attack and a hate crime.

The perpetrator, first generation American or second generation immigrant, depending on how you look at it, Omar Mateen, had pledged allegiance to ISIS, and ISIS supporters are praising the attack. That’s right. Praising the cowardly murder of unarmed, innocent civilians with nowhere to run and no way to defend themselves.

They call it an “lone wolf” attack, and I’m just waiting for the claims of “mental instability” to begin. We’re already hearing about “gun control” because the politicians need to take advantage of any attack they can, disregarding the fact that criminals get guns illegally, and no laws will stop that. (See Mexico, where guns are illegal, yet guns are everywhere and shootings are far from rare.)

But we all know the motivation, and no attempt at political correctness will fix anything.

Hatred and violence. And more hatred and violence.

-… People hate. Everybody hates everybody else. That's life.--Abdul, Agony of the Heart by D.M. Miller


D.M. Miller is the author of three books, including interfaith romances, The Religion of the Heart and Agony of the Heart.

  1. To be fair, its not just the leftists that get it wrong about the motive of the terrorist, right wingers also get it wrong the way they label the terrorist.
