CANADA - Killing Targets Muslims

Arno Froese

A family of five who were struck by a vehicle were targeted because they were Muslims, Canadian police said.

Four members of the family were killed in the incident and one remains in the hospital.

The incident occurred when a truck plowed into the group of pedestrians.

“This was an act of mass murder perpetuated against Muslims,” London, Ontario Mayor Ed Holder said. “It was rooted in unspeakable hatred. The magnitude of such hatred can make one question who we were as a city.”

Police in London, Ontario said the victims are a 74-year-old woman, a 46-year-old man, a 44-year-old woman, and a 15-year-old girl.

“We believe the victims were targeted because of their Islamic faith,” London Police Chief Stephen Williams said.

“We understand that this event may cause fear and anxiety in the community, particularly in the Muslim community, in any community targeted by hate,” he said. “There is no tolerance in this community [for those] who are motivated by hate [targeting] others with violence.”

Police arrested the suspect in the parking lot of a nearby mall.

Arno's Commentary

This news was published by TimesofIsrael.com on 7 June 2021, but is quite relevant even today. There are a number of sources on the internet that publish articles relating to the persecution of Muslims, not published by the mainstream media.

What is the motivating factor of this horrendous crime? One word: hate. Where does hatred originate? In modern times, quite often through social media and one-sided reports. 

Jesus makes this statement: “A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh” (Luke 6:45).

The apostle Paul adds: “Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies” (Galatians 5:19-20).
