Shooter in Munich terrorist attack identified as a German-Iranian , 18 years old

` At least 9 people are dead several others wounded after a gunman, likely acting alone, opened fire on shoppers in a busy mall in Munich, southern Germany. The perpetrator’s body was located nearby and bore self-inflicted wounds. His motives remain unclear.

Police said the shooter was an 18-year-old German-Iranian who lived in the country for over two years and whose motives “are still unclear.”

Looks like yet another radical Islamic jihadi terrorist attack.

3. Agreed. ...but the press is trying to spin the `crazy-lone-gunman` meme

He also was reported to be in 3 separate places while German cops were swarming the area.

I`m not buying the lone gunman theory either.

7. He's German-Iranian, so if he has any religious beliefs at all, he's probably Shiite.

 

I don't know anything about his religious beliefs at this point, like whether he attended a mosque or not.

Even assuming he's a practicing Shiite, they're not the branch of Islam to whom ISIS appeals. ISIS appeals to disaffected Sunnis and considers Shiites to be heretics.

I saw a video of him on the parking garage where he had a yelling match with an observer and seemed more crazed than anything. And then he killed himself, which ISIS martyrs don't don't unless they're taking somebody out with them.

This may not have anything to do with Islam at all, unless you believe everyone from certain countries is an active adherent of that faith and everything they do is motivated by that faith. But that would be a kind of silly thing to believe. Like saying anyone from America is a Christian, and any crime they commit is a Christian crime.

9. Yelling, "allah ackbar!" as he kills children is a pretty good religious indicator

you may not think it has anything to do with islam. But people with a brain can do the math.

10. From the article you cite:

 

Mr Andrae said: 'The perpetrator was an 18-year-old German-Iranian from Munich. The motive or explanation for this crime is completely unclear.'

The shooter was not previously known to police and there was no evidence of any links to terrorist organizations, Andrae said.

He added: 'The question of terrorism or a rampage is tied to motive, and we don't know the motive. 'We can't question the suspect so this is all a little more difficult.'

-------------

If only those poor, brainless German cops had you there to figure it out for them.

6. Posters on DU deflating like a balloon

Joy was returning to DU and posters were happily chiming in to crow about the German attacker being a right wing German nationalist. After it was revealed he was Persian, the posting has trickled down to nothing. You can almost hear the air coming out of the balloon

12. "Still unclear"?

My, how history has turned on the Germans. Now it is they who are sadly being prodded along naked to their own slaughter, and their only thought apparently is: "I wonder if they're will be enough soap to go around in the shower room?"

How can you save an entire nation that's in denial?
