An imam and his assistant were shot dead as they walked along a street in the New York borough of Queens.
Imam Akonjee and his assistant Thara Uddin, 64, were shot a short walk from the al-Furqan Jame mosque at about 13:50 local time (17:50 GMT) on Saturday.
The men were approached from behind by a man who shot them both in the head, a police spokesman said.
Imam Maulama Akonjee, 55, moved to the city from Bangladesh two years ago, reports in New York said. Police said there were as yet "no indications" the men were targeted because of their faith.
A man holding a gun was seen leaving the scene of the shooting in the Ozone Park area, but no-one has been arrested. Police said the suspect had a "medium complexion".
Which can be translated as "non - white "taking the blame and hate crime out of the awaited accusation by Muslims. No matter what is happening generally Muslims see them self's as victims. The sketch made by the police of the shooter doesn't remind of any European but rather fit the description of a Bangladeshi or Pakistani or Arab male...
SDR thinks that this is a mainly a fabricated killing planned by Muslims to blame US and
Israel to keep hate alive. And to get some sort of Muslim uprising in the same way as African Americans recently have acted with the campaign: "Black lives matter".
Just last week it was reported that US activists did take part with Palestinians in Israel in anti
Israeli activities .....
Maybe this is what the "black lives matters activists" brought home from Palestine where blaming US and Israel for any murder or even bad weather is common. Fact however remind that the killer look more like
an Arab than a white supremacist tells us that the idea of Muslims planning this isn't far fetched.
