Omar Mateen

Mass murderer Omar Mateen, 29, who killed 50 people and wounded 53 people in the Pulse gay nightclub in Orlando, Fl., called 911 just before he started the shooting, to pledge his allegiance to the ISIS Caliph, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, NBC News reported. Mateen also reminded the 911 operator of the Tsarnaev brothers from the Boston Marathon bombing, according to CBS News.

California congressman Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Select Committee on Intelligence, told CNN: “What I’ve heard from the Department of Homeland Security this morning is that, according to local police, he made a pledge of allegiance to ISIS.” Schiff also said the shooting was “highly indicative of an ISIL-inspired attack,” and that the shooter “was heard praying in a foreign language and I don’t know if this was at some point during the course of the shooting but that’s what I’m hearing, obviously second-hand, coming ultimately from local police.”

According to media reports citing the FBI, the gunman, the son of Afghan parents, opened fire on the dance floor of the Pulse night club early Sunday morning. At least 50 people were killed and 53 others were injured in the shooting. According to President Obama, who delivered a 10-minute message around 2 PM EDT, this was the deadliest mass shooting in US history. According to a surgeon at Orlando Regional Medical Center who spoke to the media, the death toll will likely be higher. The FBI is investigating the shooting as an act of terrorism, and the agency is looking into whether this was an act of domestic or international terror, and if the shooter was a lone wolf.

As of Sunday afternoon, ISIS has yet to claim credit for the attack, and the FBI suspects it was probably ISIS-inspired, like the San Bernardino shooting, and not ISIS-planned, like the attacks in Europe.

Channel 9 news in Orlando last April broadcast a video uncovered by a group called The United West, of Sheikh Farrokh Sekaleshfar, who in 2013 spoke at the Husseini Islamic Center in Sanford, FL, calling for the death of all homosexuals in the spirit of the tenets of the Shariah Islamiyya, or Islamic Law. He said, “Death is the sentence. We know there’s nothing to be embarrassed about this, death is the sentence… We have to have that compassion for people, with homosexuals, it’s the same, out of compassion, let’s get rid of them now.”

  1. Please stop showing this ’s face! You are only helping to promote his and radical Islam’s agenda! His visage should be wiped from the face of the earth! Instead, when the time is appropriate, show the faces of the vicitims.

  2. so the person who avoided serving in the U.S. millitary who brags about not funding the millitary , aims to turning the U.S.A into his private business and Knows that former P.O.W's are losers ,now found the guilty one in Orlando :as he screams its Obama! Isis could never find a better spokesman…

  3. You moron lefti libtard, those R your words not his, The incompetent Muslim in the Oval Office has blood on his hands, he forced the gender restroom issue on the American people, and in his stupid mind still believes that Islam is peaceful, well he got one angry Muslim killing innocent gays because mohammad told him so and they will be more angry muslims to kill more Americans

  4. Ofra Bendavid insulting other Jews is against Jewish law! you can't spell Technion (my schoo)l and you insult my city Haifa.The more you talk the more you reveal your own ignorance.. keep talking..Hate should keep you awake at night…

  5. The connection of the killer to ISIS is really of minor importance. He was an Afghan homosexual whose father had Taliban sympathies. It looks like homosexuality has reached the point that it has become self-destructive. It’s best to try to gradually draw people who are involved with this behavior away from it. It may help to take a dim view of exotic sexual practices whether they are homosexual or heterosexual and to discourage masturbation in general. Also the emphasis on sex in the media, advertising, and popular society in general has become excessive. Rational thought needs to be given to the characteristic of modesty and making a parody or a fetish of it does not help what has become a very serious problem.

  6. So what does Obama or Kerry have to say about Shaikh?Sekaleshfar in Sanford Florida. (Hey! Florida is in America) or am I mistaken ? We have islamist dictating that all homeosexuals should be killed, and take on the aftar of carrying out that dictate. I'm sorry which country is Florida in, did they move it to Syria or Saudi Arabia etc.,

  7. "Gays must die" along with Jews or any other religion that does not fit in with any of the particular Islamic views. So rape is ok, along with mutulation of women and the murdering and cutting off of heads of any other soul other than a Muslim. Get it together people, freedom of speech and the right to live in peace is the right of all free persons. The statements made by these Imams are from the middle ages.

  8. Don't you just love the intolerance of people on the Left for people who say that there are reasonable limits upon tolerance?

    This is the face of Obama's preferred world of Sharia — No matter what he says in public. He passively encourages things like this, because America cannot "change" without an internal upheval, and blood upon the pavenment squares.

    It will take a Bolshevik Revolution, with the Islamic militants as the scapegoat shock troops on point, for Americans to demand full governmental control of their lives for the expediency of an illuson of temporary safety. It is only then, that the Socialist States of North America can replace the U.S. Canada, and Mexico.

    Look at the brown shirts of the Nazis; look at the Trotskyites of Tzarist Russia; see the purpose, in all of this. They are expendable, for the cause of full government control of the lives, bodies, and minds of the rest of their citizens

    You can borrow all of the money you want, when you never plan on paying it back. The SSNA will owe the Rothchilds absolutely nothing. That is the U.S.'s debt; but it no longer exists.

    Dream on, Obama. For we citizens have invested heavily in precious metals; brass, copper, lead, and steel.

  9. Isn't there some sort of contradiction here? – mohammed screwed little boys, it is emulated today in the islamic sector and the actions will no doubt continue to be practiced so perhaps someone might elaborate why such hatred of the gay populous when muslims do the same?
