Canada suffered its first terrorist attack just two days after Prime Minister Justin Trudeau slammed President Trump‘s executive orders to stem terrorism in the United States.
A gunman opened fire at an Islamic center in Quebec City Sunday evening, killing 6 people and wounding 8 others.
One witness, a Muslim man who had been praying at the mosque, told the CBC he heard the gunman yell “Allahu akbar!” during the shooting. There were about 40 people attending prayer service at the time.
“They started to fire, and as they shot they yelled, ‘Allahu akbar!” said the witness. “The bullets hit people that were praying. There were even kids. There was a three-year-old who was with his father.”
The witness is a young man, being identified only as Abdi for his safety, was praying at the Quebec City mosque last night.

The suspect has been identified as Alexandre Bissonnette. Multiple media outlets had previously identified Mohamed el Khadir as a second suspect, but now claim he was merely a witness.
Early internet rumors had blamed Trump for the Quebec shooting, with anti-Trumpers claiming his “rhetoric” had caused white supremacists to storm the mosque.
Many circulated the fake news rumor that the shooters had yelled “Make America great again!” or “Go Trump!” during the rampage.
Actor Kumail Nanjiani initially blamed Trump for the terrorist attack before deleting the tweet.
Nanjiani has blasted Trump’s executive order temporarily halting visas from 7 nations known for being hotbeds of radical Islamic terrorism.
Nanjiani suggested that if the United States doesn’t let Muslims in, they will turn into terrorists.Liberal mainstream media shills also piled on Trump without confirming any facts.
Reuters even tweeted a fake news report blaming “white supremacists” David Aurine and Mathieu Fournier for the shooting.
That rumor was later picked up by leftist website the Daily Beast.
Meanwhile, others on Twitter said the mainstream media and the public never protested when other world leaders imposed travel bans.
As a Jew and an Israeli I am banned from visiting very many Muslim countries. A visit may cost me my life or freedom. I've seen no protests
