Killer Shouts "god is great" Before Shooting Mechanic in Kuwait : LUSENET : Grassroots Information Coordination Center (GICC) : One Thread


Ethier's wife makes revelation

The wife of Luc Ethier, the Montreal man gunned down this week on a street in Kuwait, says the killer shouted "God is Great" before opening fire. The phrase is a traditional Muslim cry that precedes prayer or militant action. Police say they have questioned several fundamentalist Muslims in connection with the attack, but there is no evidence that the recent bombing of Afghanistan has any connection. Ethier's wife was also shot in the attack, and is recovering in hospital. Police say they will release their findings in the next few days.

Couple of Billion people say "God is Great" at least 4 times a day, including most of the population of Kuwait. We can surmise that the poor sod was not killed by the Italian Mafia.

A revelation indeed ;>
