Sad news of murder, yet at the same time, a sigh of relief it wasn't a Muslim name :(

Mind you ISIS has claimed it

A statement published by the group's Amaq propaganda agency claimed the attacker was a “soldier of the Islamic State”.

“The Las Vegas attacker is a soldier of the Islamic State in response to calls to target coalition countries,” it said.

Isis also claimed the gunman “converted to Islam several months ago”, without providing more details. Paddock's religion and lifestyle have not yet emerged elsewhere.

Paddock had a licence to fly small planes, and owned two aircrafts.

I hope muslim organisations go out there and hold vigils, peace march, conference, hand out flowers and hugs, sign petitions and condemn this terror act. Its only fair they do this otherwise non muslims will see it as double standards.

Extract of Article by Shaun King the Intercept.... t.co/ikzb08YESN


"What we are witnessing is the blatant fact that white privilege protects even Stephen Paddock, an alleged mass murderer, not just from being called a terrorist, but from the anger, rage, hellfire, and fury that would surely rain down if he were almost anyone other than a white man. His skin protects him. It also prevents our nation from having an honest conversation about why so many white men do what he did, and why this nation seems absolutely determined to do next to nothing about it.

I spoke to two people this morning, one black and the other Muslim. Both of them said that, when they heard about this awful shooting in Las Vegas, they immediately began hoping that the shooter was not black or a Muslim. Why? Because they knew that the blowback on all African-Americans or Muslims would be fierce if the shooter hailed from one of those communities.

Something is deeply wrong when people feel a sense of relief that the shooter is white because they know that means they won’t suffer as a result. White people, on the other hand, had no such feeling this morning, because 400 years of American history tells them that no such consequences will exist for them today as a result of Stephen Paddock’s actions.

It is an exemplar of white privilege: not just being given a head start in society, but also the freedom from certain consequences of individual and group actions.

If only Stephen Paddock had been a Muslim … If only he had shouted “Allahu akbar” before he opened fire on all those concertgoers in Las Vegas … If only he had been a member of ISIS … If only we had a picture of him posing with a Quran in one hand and his semiautomatic rifle in another …

I don't normally buy into those conspiracy theories which claim that all 'terrorist' attacks are fake and set up.

One thing I do notice, however, is that I am seeing more coverage of those who were killed or injured in this attack as opposed to those who were involved in other attacks. I always feel that I am not seeing enough about those who died or survived other attacks. I have not done proper research, just a thought I had.
