A lone gunman killed a Queens imam and his assistant as the pair walked home from Saturday afternoon prayers, shooting each in the head from close range, cops and witnesses said.

Both victims were dressed in Muslim garb when targeted by the shooter, who fled the scene on foot and remained at large. Members of the mosque quickly denounced the double homicide as a hate crime.

“That’s not what America is about,” said local resident Khairul Islam, 33. “We blame Donald Trump for this ... Trump and his drama has created Islamophobia.”

Sorry to see this. Hopefully they catch whoever's responsible.
 
They blame Donald Trump? that is really an innappropriate accusation.

Considering some of those on this website alone who support him and their view of Muslims.....

I wouldn't say so, no.
 
Partisan hackery abounds no matter your race, religion, creed, gender, or <insert whatever group you feel like here>.
 
We can't immediately assume they were killed because they were Muslim.

But if they were -- I agree that Trump has made matters worse in that arena.
 
Some people just want to blame Trump for everything (even this economy, I suppose).
 
A guy shoots up a gay bar while shouting Allah Ackbar, killing 49.....blame guns
2 Muslims shot dead.....blame Trump.

Unless Trump ordered them killed, it's not his fault.
 
Trump is an offensive and incendiary little prick.

You're giving Trump too much credit. He's a teensy wiennsy, itsy bitsy prick. Hell, maybe that's too much.

Fair enough, but he has some really moronic followers whose moral compasses are more ****ed up than his.

Why blame Trump when Obama and Hillary were killing Muslims with drones long before Trump said a word?

At least they are not blaming the gun this time. :2razz:

Wait - if DNC staffer Seth Rich gets shot dead around the time of the DNC email leak, then we're told it's just a coincidence - just a robbery gone bad. "Nothing to see here, folks - move along."

But if a Muslim cleric gets killed, then it's automatically a hate crime? Why?
You mean people don't get shot in Queens, NY?
 
It could be BLM or the NBA or the FFA.

But many of you will blame Trump, when it's probably a random N.Y. murder for a $5.00 trinket.

One thing is certain, this one will be thoroughly investigated, unlike the wikileaker hit.
