We join the World in noting that We stand with New Zealand and the US Ambassador to New Zealand, Scott Brown noted this in a Tweet approximately 4 hours ago:
We’re heartbroken over the events in Christchurch today. We stand with our Kiwi friends and neighbors and our prayers are with you. Kia kaha.— Ambassador Brown 🇺🇸 (@USAmbNZ) March 15, 2019
The Prime Minister of Pakistan, though, captured what has led to this horrific attack:
I blame these increasing terror attacks on the current Islamophobia post-9/11 where Islam & 1.3 bn Muslims have collectively been blamed for any act of terror by a Muslim. This has been done deliberately to also demonize legitimate Muslim political struggles. https://t.co/5bBREoayLz— Imran Khan (@ImranKhanPTI) March 15, 2019
We here at the Daily Outsider stand with the People of New Zealand as we pray for the soul of the fallen and ask for solace for all their loved ones.
