In a breaking news story, a car has rammed into a crowd of Australians in Melbourne, killing at least 3, including 1 Jewish child.
A teen who was on scene described driver as thin, dark hair, appeared Middle Eastern. The driver has been identified as Dimitrious Gargasoulas.
Dimitrious Gargasoulas admitted on one of his Facebook posts that he is a Muslim of Kurdish origin from Greece.
According to witnesses, the Muslim driver was shouting “Allahu Akbar” as he was smashing through people with his car.
From The Guardian:
Three people have been killed, including a young child, and at least 15 injured after a car drove into pedestrians in Bourke Street, one of the busiest areas in Melbourne’s central business district.
Victoria police confirmed on Friday afternoon the victims were a young child and a man and a woman, both in their 30s. None of the dead were believed to be related.
The Royal Children’s hospital said earlier it was treating five casualties, including a two-year-old who was in intensive care and a three-month-old who was undergoing an operation. Figures released by several other Melbourne hospitals put the total number of injured at 25, but in an afternoon media conference Ashton said he knew of 15 injured.
A 26-year-old man was taken into custody with non life-threatening injuries after police rammed his car and fired several shots. Police said the events had no connection with terrorism and the suspect, who was well known to them, had mental health and drug issues.
This is becoming the global narrative on how to deal with Islam when it shows it’s true colors: Have government officials come out and say that it’s not Islam and say that it is mental illness. This excuse was used with the airport shooter in Florida and with the shooter in Spain, both happened in the last couple of weeks.
According to the Australian Jewish News, among the victims who were killed in the attack, there was also a 10-year old Jewish girl.
