Initial Reports: Stephen Paddock Was Recent Convert To Islam

Although many reports are emerging which show that the Las Vegas terrorist, Stephen Pollack, was a recent convert to Islam; this is being shut down by the MSM.

Freerepublic reported this, as well as jihadwatch:


Initial reports: Las Vegas shooter “recent convert to Islam.” Now: “We have no idea what his belief system was.

Police take shooter’s female companion into custody after attack which left more than 50 dead, 100 wounded. 2 Police officers among dead.

The gunman responsible for a deadly shooting attack at a country music festival in Las Vegas has been identified as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, a resident of Mesquite, Nevada.

Police say Paddock had a criminal record, but no known ties to terrorism.

While initial reports claimed Paddock was a recent convert to Islam, Clark County Sherrif [sic] Joseph Lombardo said he had no knowledge of Paddock’s religious beliefs.

“As far as his history and his background, we haven’t completed that part of the investigation yet.”

“We have no idea what his belief system was.”

Authorities are now searching for the shooter’s companion, a 62-year-old woman identified as Marilou Danley, whom police have called “a person of interest”. KHOU-TV‘s Bill Bishop identified Danley as Paddock’s wife.

More than 50 people were killed when the gunman opened fire just before 10:30 p.m. local time Sunday night on the Route 91 Harvest Festival country music show at the Mandalay Bay resort in Las Vegas. In addition, some 200 people were wounded in the attack….- source

I’ve read other reports stating that Paddock was a radical left wing Democrat.  Only time will tell what prompted this madman to carry out this unthinkable massacre.

*****Update:  ISIS has claimed responsibility for the massacre on Twitter.

A word from Amir Tsarfati on ISIS and their part in the Las Vegas massacre:

Pray for the families of the dead.

Pray for the wounded that they may recover.

Pray that many will come to Christ in the midst of this horrific terrorist attack.
