Beslan in Rio: Muslim Opens Fire on Children's School, 11 Dead, 20 Wounded

Rio Mass Murder: Muslim Opens Fire on Children’s School, 11 Dead, 20 Wounded, Suicide Note “References to Islamic fundamentalism”

I think it’s important to note that all of the headlines in the news reports in Portuguese call the murderer an Islamic suicide bomber and report that his letter refers to Islam, while none of the English outlets are reporting this critical clue.

“In recent months, she said, he appeared to have got closer to Islam.”

At least 11 people, mostly children, died Thursday and more that 15 were wounded when an armed man attacked a school in Realengo in the poor suburbs of Rio de Janeiro.

According to a preliminary police report, the attacker – a 24- year-old former student at the school – was among the dead after shooting himself in the head. He attacked Tasso da Silveira school, where some 400 students ages 9-14 were in classes. […]

Beltrami described the letter as ‘the words of a person who no longer believes in anything, full of sentences that made no sense andreferences to Islamic fundamentalism.’

Huh? He no longer believes in anything but made references to Islam?

Beltrami said the attacker was friendly as he went into the school, chatting with administrators and teachers and asking for permission to address the children. When he reached the third floor of the building, the suspect entered one of the classrooms and started to shoot at students, killing nine girls and one boy.

The attacker apparently committed suicide upon being chased by a police officer who had been called in by a student who managed to escape the buildingRoselane de Oliveira, a sister of the attacker, told Rio de Janeiro radio station Band News that the young man ‘was very strange.’

‘He had no friends, and he spent all his time on the Internet,’ she said.

In recent months, she said, he appeared to have got closer to Islam.

Police stressed, however, that there was no concrete evidence that the attack had either a religious or a political motive.  (No shiite!)

  1. * Police stressed, however, that there was no concrete evidence that the attack had either a religious or a political motive. (No shiite!)

    Can’t they find a new script writer?

  2. I guess, that the Muzoids will pull the ‘Sanity’ card…
    My question is, how close to Islam one must be
    to enable the sanity erasing mechanism ?
    ( Or is it the other way around ?… )

  3. * I guess, that the Muzoids will pull the ‘Sanity’ card…

    And the local muslims will be “shocked” and say they hardly knew him.

  4. Did you watch the news, Mullah?

    One channel said he did it because he was suffering from AIDS.

    The other channel mentioned nothing, except that he wanted to have a Muslim burial.

    WTF happened to reporting in this country?

  5. The Spanish newspaper El Mundo quoted some extracts from his letter. He talks about Jesus and says he hopes God can forgive him, so I don’t think this is a jihad incident.

  6. The news I watched showed some of the CCTV footage, but little apart from that.

    The UK Mail online has excerpts which seem to bear out what Cheradenine says above, but references to islam could be omitted(?)

    In any event, the stuff about not being touched by anyone impure or without gloves is not Biblical – the other stuff may be consistent with a confused Catholic (in Brazil), but as for forgiveness it is too late once he killed himself.

  7. Looking for the Muslim Jesus?

    Issa, here he is, asking for a Muslim burial:

    The following are excerpts from the letter Wellington de Oliveira left at the school:

    The letter also explained in detail how Oliveira wanted his corpse to be cared for – bathed and wrapped in a white sheet that he left in a bag in the first room where he said he would start shooting. The letter also states that the gunman should not be touched by anyone who is ‘impure’ unless they wear gloves.

    ‘You should first know that the impure cannot touch me without gloves, only the chaste or those who lost their chastity after marriage and were not involved in adultery can touch me without gloves, or, in other words, no fornicator or adulterer can have direct contact with me.

    ‘Those who prepare my burial should take off all my clothes, wash me, dry me and wrap me totally naked in a white sheet that is in this building, in a bag that I left in the first room on the first floor, after they have wrapped me in this sheet they can put me in my coffin.

    ‘If possible, I want to be buried next to the grave where my mom sleeps. I need to be visited at my grave by a faithful follower of God at least once, he must pray in front of my grave and ask God’s forgiveness for what I did praying that upon his return Jesus wakes me from the sleep of death for eternal life.’

  8. Certainly sounds like he wished to be buried as a muslim:

    http://islam.about.com/cs/elderly/a/funerals.htm
    [Washing and Shrouding

    In preparation for burial, the family or other members of the community will wash and shroud the body. (If the deceased was killed as a martyr, this step is not performed; martyrs are buried in the clothes they died in.) The deceased will be washed respectfully, with clean and scented water, in a manner similar to how Muslims make ablutions for prayer. The body will then be wrapped in sheets of clean, white cloth (called the kafan).]

    It will be interesting to see where and how he is buried (in a muslim section, facing Mecca).

  9. Sheik: He left instructions on how to treat and bury his body? What nerve! Those instructions should be ignored completely (but will they be?) and his body should be cremated and ashes dumped at the landfill. Who cares what he wants? He just slaughtered 11 innocent children!

  10. * In recent months “he appeared to have got closer to Islam.”

    Pretty much nails it, coming from his sister.

  11. * chatting with administrators and teachers and asking for permission to address the children

    I’ll turn up at my old high school and have a chat and address the children??? Just like that?
