Alex Minassian

Alex Minassian

Assalamu Alaikum

Ten lives lost, 15 seriously injured.

.

May God give comfort to the victims and their families.

.

One thing not mentioned by the media is that this attack took place essentially on a Muslim neighborhood. Was it intentional? Most witnesses to the incident are Muslims as well. It is also possible that a number of the victims, who are still being counted, were Muslims as well.

.

It is possible that Alex Minassian is a right-wing hate monger, just like the Quebec City mosque shooter, particularly if we consider that he searched the 2014 Isla Vista killings. In those murders, the killer, Elliot Rodger, was known to have made many racist remarks against minorities in his manifesto.

.

Whenever attackers are white, the media connects the murderous rampage to the state of one’s mental health, versus his race, religion, or ethnicity.

.

The Toronto van attacker is Alex Minassian. His last name is of Armenian origin, although thankfully no media has connected the Armenian-Canadian community to the attack.

.

So far, no reports have pointed out his religious background. But police have ruled out terrorism - perhaps because his name is not a Muslim one.

Action Items:

  • Please pray for the victims and their families
  • Donate generously to the survivors
  • Participate in a vigil
  • If you are concerned about your loved ones, please contact the Family Information and Support Centre at 416-480-4940
  • Participate in the conversation on talk shows and through letters to the editor
  • Call journalists and editors and tell them the attack was on a neighborhood with a large Muslim population, and that this needs to be mentioned in their reporting

Thinking Points

  • Why are the police reluctant to call this an act of terror?
  • Why is no one is talking about his religious affiliation or ethnic origin?
  • Although the attacker is an Armenian, no Armenian organization in Canada has issued any statement of condemnation.
  • Furthermore, no Armenian organization has been called on to do so, by leaders, the media, or anyone else

Talking Points

  • Point out that the attack took place in the Muslim neighborhood which is populated with Halal restaurants, etc.
  • It is possible that Minassian was motivated by racial hate, since he did search the 2014 Isla Vista killings, where the killer was known to have made many racist remarks against visible minorities
  • No mass shooters in Canadian history have been Muslim
  • Call it a terrorist attack, whatever the motive, since the aim was to terrorize people

Some Toronto Facts:

  • Almost eight percent of the population of Greater Toronto Area is Muslim
  • Toronto is one of the most diverse cities in the world, as over fifty percent of the city's population belongs to a visible minority group
  • One of the officers involved in the incident restrained from shooting the attacker, which is a praiseworthy act

Peace Abdul Malik Mujahid
