A suspected Islamic terrorist opened fire at a gay nightclub in Florida, killing 50 people and wounding another 53 before he was killed by police. While authorities continue to investigate to determine whether this man had ties to ISIS, the terror organization has not been quiet in praising the attack. This comes three days after ISIS announced they would attack somewhere in Florida. Today's attack marks the largest act of terrorism on US soil since 9/11.

takyon: The gunman reportedly called 911 emergency services to pledge allegiance to ISIS. The President will hold a briefing momentarily. Compare this article to the original submission.

    Yeah to all the muslims who love to point out how perfect and tolerant Islam is, I always ask them to show me which country of all the islamic countries is a paragon of human rights, freedom and tolerance.

    The US or France would be my picks for Islamic countries that come close. On a related note, if Allah picks favorites, which a number of the faithful believe he does, then why does he heavily favor a godless, hedonistic country like the US or France over a religious country like Afghanistan? It's almost like the party goers and the like of the US are more righteous than the righteous.
