The New Zealand massacre is an example of hateful racism in the West

The Australian terrorist who committed the massacre at a mosque in New Zealand was calmly and even happily listening to music as he committed his crime. He was listening to a Serbian song that glorified the Serbian criminal leader Radovan Karadzic, who committed the Serbian massacres against Muslims in Bosnia. The song lyrics include, “Wolves are on the move from Krajina. Karadzic leads your Serbs; let them see they fear no one.” The song played as he live-streamed the massacre, meaning that there was an audience that was watching him and encouraging him to commit this act, and that he was communicating with someone and that he was working for them. He revealed this when he said his attack was blessed by the Knights Templar, a Christian military order formed in Europe during the Middle Ages. It took part in the Crusades in its war against the Islamic State.

The weapon used by the Australian terrorist to commit the massacre had symbols, dates and writings that show the extent of his hatred and animosity towards Muslims, as well as the existence of extremist Christian religious trends inspired by the literature from the history of the Crusades. It also indicates the existence of organisations and entities that include those extremist movements in the organisational work, such as the operations carried out by Daesh, and that there is a body that sponsors and funds them, as well as plan out their attacks. This body exploits these trends’ hatred towards Muslims and their Islamophobia. This is not a lone wolf act.

Let’s take a look at the dates and names written on the terrorist’s weapons and analyse their symbolism and significance.
