“Las Vegas attacker converted to Islam a few months ago”: Islamic State claims responsibility for attack

If you remember – ISIS called for a lone wolf attack on the Vegas Strip in May.

JIHAD WATCH-

“The Las Vegas attack was carried out by a soldier of the Islamic State and he carried it out in response to calls to target states of the coalition. The Las Vegas attacker converted to Islam a few months ago.”

An active shooter fired at an outdoor concert crowd in Las Vegas’ Mandalay Bay Casino area. At least 50 people died and 400 were injured in the shooting, that was later claimed by ISIS. The roads leading to the Vegas strip were shut by the police. The gunman was shot down at the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel. The Nevada sheriff identified Stephen Paddock as the suspected gunman in Las Vegas shootout.

Islamic State has claimed responsibility for a shooting that killed at least 50 people and wounded over 400 in Las Vegas early on Monday, and said the attacker had converted to Islam a few months ago.

“The Las Vegas attack was carried out by a soldier of the Islamic State and he carried it out in response to calls to target states of the coalition,” the group’s news agency Amaq said in reference to the US-led coalition fighting the group in the Middle East.

“The Las Vegas attacker converted to Islam a few months ago,” Amaq added….

  1. The part-Indonesian GF set off a warning bell for me, but I was thinking more of a Hodgkinson than a Mateen. Now it looks like a hybrid.

  2. That makes a lot more sense than Tariq Nasheed blaming “white supremacy”.
    Cause everybody knows, a country music concert is a target rich environment, perfect for a white racist hunting blacks.
    It’s official, Tariq Nasheed is the world’s worst Tweeter with a blue check.
    Come on President Trump, change to GAB, Twitter is beneath your stature.

  3. Without the obola administration convoluting the real story,
    it will be interesting to see IF islam is to blame and WHAT fuel that will bring to the nation’s realization that the pastel versions of the satanic cult are merely propaganda.

  4. I’m not prepared to take ISIS’s word for it.

    The truth is ISIS can use this massacre for their benefit whether this animal was one of them or not.

    Claiming responsibility is no skin off their nose. It helps them to do so regardless.

    I don’t consider them an unimpeachable source of truth.

  5. Agreed MJA, he gambled too. They are total hypocrites.

    My gut is that he was a never-Trumper, liberal democrat who felt sympathy for the poor muslims due to white people being Islamaphobic.

  6. Agreed, Dianny. This latest allegation is almost over the top in bias confirmation. Next thing you know, we’ll find out he voted for Hillary.

  7. Update:

    Both of my friends have made it out of Vegas and are on a flight back to Wyoming.

    In some of the pictures you see a man wearing a white cowboy hat and white plaid shirt. That’s my friend, Tom. He and his wife (a nurse) were busy carrying people on those red grates putting them in the back of vehicle beds. They are both wiped out physically and mentally and their clothing is covered in other peoples blood.

    They are AMAZED they are both alive due to the proximity of the people who were being dropped by that asshole gunman. We are talking 2-3 feet away. all around them. He said it appeared that the people being hit most often were the ones running (weird).

    God Bless them, both.

    These are the only two people I know who live in Wyoming and are why I am moving there in the first place. I leave California on Saturday, the 7th of October.

  8. first audio I heard this am had the auto gunfire and the band both clear and at a similar level. where would one have to be for that as the fugger was 32 floors up?
    Feeding the Alex.

  9. I’ve head the weapon may have had a ‘bump fire’ type stock rather than being full auto. This would explain the somewhat ragged cyclic rate you can hear on the videos.

  10. Leftists’ response upon hearing this
    (NO, I’m NOT making this up):
    “In any case, he was White.” 😮

  11. in fighting the jizzhad, mussies are allowed, even encouraged to party til they puke, nothing is off the table in their quest for “martyrdom”. they are pure devious evil.

  12. Not that I’ve seen or read. Sounded like an AK to me. 32 stories is 128 yards straight up. If you look at the where some of the victims were he was spraying probably 300 yards. I think this is going to end up being an Alt Left ass and if it is I hope someone sticks it to some of our Libtard personalities and holds the responsible.

  13. blame it on the muzzies isis and go bomb them where they are located in the middle east- hold nothing back- if a few so called civilians die oh well. you need to cut off the head for the rest to die….

  14. I wonder *who* the woman was, who went into the crowd and told them they were going to die…since the Marilou person was/is out of the country.

  15. Czar of Defenestration— This is The Strip we’re talking about. There are at least 10 of those freaks walking around mumbling to themselves on any given night. lol.

  16. He was dead when they arrived. What if he wasn’t the shooter, but executed and left on scene ? They need to see who was coming and going out of the room. Maybe its just him, but maybe not.

  17. That is about a thousand foot shot.
    He had some pretty good training somewhere, sometime.
    MJA
    Bingo!
    We stay down on Fremont, and there is a long running cast of freaky characters there that we see every year.
    Big homeless/mentally instable gang in Vegas for sure.

  18. I heard ISIS was doping kids up with anti anxiety drugs to program them to blow themselves up.
    The toxicology report will tell a lot.
    The girlfriend is involved.

  19. Brad,

    That guy was beer-brave (alcohol stupidity)…..and stupid as fuck. He made everybody near him a bullet magnet (not that the shooter could have distinguished him anyway at that distance).

    I’d have grabbed his legs and dropped him on the spot. He endangered everybody around him unnecessarily.

  20. Most of the people in the Las Vegas crowd were most likely Trump voters or at least preceived to be. Possible deep state retaliation and psycho, suicidal, liberal shooter a perfect pawn. The left will do anything to attempt to destroy Trump’s presidency.

  21. Limbaugh posted a question on his broadcast today … (& this is not verbatim) ..’does ISIS have a history of making false claims or taking create for something their not involved in?’
    … I don’t know the answer to that either.

  22. ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ

    I googled false claims by ISIS. Came up with two. They reported they shot down a Warthog a couple years back, and something about killing some dignitary. Fairly accurate.

  23. It may have gotten to the point that the deep state and the media are blaming ISIS to cover for Antifa. It would be far more preferable to blame ISIS, since Antifa has been excused and legitimized by the establishment.

  24. I ain’t buying any of it. I think he may have just been a patsy for his muzzie girlfriend who set it up with muzzie brothers in rooms located near hers…they say the room was rented in HER name and now she’s out of the country?!?! So you have some old white dude who looks like he can’t even take a piss without getting the floor wet who is laying down massive firepower like he’d trained for it for years.

    Something smells fishy!

  25. Let’s solve the gun issue now … No Guns for Liberal’s, they don’t have the slightest clue what they are used for !

  26. “where would one have to be for that as the fugger was 32 floors up”

    It is likely the gun powder going bang at that distance is pretty quiet compared to the little sonic boom created during the whole flight path of the bullet.

    You’ll hear every bullet that hasn’t dropped below the speed of sound (sub-sonic). Even if it was suppressed when fired!

    From the same rifle, try a subsonic .22 and a .22 that goes 1,200 fps or faster. The report of the supersonic .22 can be mistaken for a large caliber hunting rifle by those around you. All because of that little sonic boom.
