Muslims "Blame Trump" After New York Imam Assassinated In Broad Daylight
Muslims "Blame Trump" After New York Imam Assassinated In Broad Daylight

<p>A <strong>lone gunman</strong> opened fire on a Queens' imam and his assistant as the two walked (near Ozone Park mosque in New York) after Saturday afternoon prayers, leaving <strong>one dead and the other critically wounded</strong>.</p>

<p>As <a href="http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/drive-by-shooter-queens-gravely-injures-men-article-1.2749901?cid=bitly">NY Daily News reports</a>, dozens of angry Muslim men gathered at the murder scene, with one exclaiming<strong><em> &ldquo;That&rsquo;s not what America is about...we blame Donald Trump for this... Trump and his drama has created Islamophobia.&rdquo;</em></strong></p>
<p><a href="http://www.zerohedge.com/sites/default/files/images/user3303/imageroot/2016/08/07/20160813_imam3.jpg"><img height="357" src="http://www.zerohedge.com/sites/default/files/images/user3303/imageroot/2016/08/07/20160813_imam3.jpg" width="443" /></a></p>
<p>The gunshots rang out near the Al-Furqan Jame Masjid Mosque in Ozone Park, <strong>leaving both men lying on the ground in their own blood just a block from the house of worship</strong>, according to witnesses.</p>
<blockquote><div class="quote_start"><div></div></div><div class="quote_end"><div></div></div><p>Witnesses described a chaotic scene where the shooter started firing at the two unarmed victims in the middle of a blistering August afternoon.</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p><strong>&ldquo;We are devastated,&rdquo; said Kobir Chowdhury, president of a second neighborhood mosque. &ldquo;We needs to get to the bottom of this. We need to know if they did this just because of our religion.&rdquo;</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>Another witness said the gunfire seemingly came from nowhere.</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p><a href="http://www.zerohedge.com/sites/default/files/images/user3303/imageroot/2016/08/07/20160813_imam1.jpg"><img height="345" src="http://www.zerohedge.com/sites/default/files/images/user3303/imageroot/2016/08/07/20160813_imam1_0.jpg" width="600" /></a></p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p><strong>&ldquo;All of a sudden I heard five shots,&rdquo; </strong>said the witness, who declined to give his name. &ldquo;I knew it wasn&rsquo;t firecrackers. And then the commotion of the emergency (vehicles), and that&rsquo;s when I knew.</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p><strong>&ldquo;When I came here, they were doing CPR to both of the people on the ground.&rdquo;</strong></p>
</blockquote>
<p>Blame for the assassination was quickly placed squarely on Donald Trump's shoulders...</p>
<blockquote><div class="quote_start"><div></div></div><div class="quote_end"><div></div></div><p><strong>Dozens of angry Muslim men gathered at the murder scene, making it clear they believed the shooting was a hate crime &mdash; with the two religious leaders specifically targeted.</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p><strong><a href="http://www.zerohedge.com/sites/default/files/images/user3303/imageroot/2016/08/07/20160813_imam2.jpg"><img height="329" src="http://www.zerohedge.com/sites/default/files/images/user3303/imageroot/2016/08/07/20160813_imam2.jpg" width="600" /></a></strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>&ldquo;That&rsquo;s not what America is about,&rdquo; said local resident Khairul Islam, 33.</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p><strong>&ldquo;We blame Donald Trump for this ... Trump and his drama has created Islamophobia.&rdquo;</strong></p>
</blockquote>
<p>And with that, the narrative is set for tomorrow's political talk-shows.</p>
