Australia: Friend of Melbourne car attacker says he “converted to Muslim and changed very quickly”: “A close friend told said Gargasoulas’ rantings were driven by heavy use of the drug ice, and that he had recently converted to Islam. ‘He was a great guy but ice destroyed him. Then he converted to Muslim and changed very quickly. For over a month he’s been on edge,’ he told Daily Mail Australia.”
This confirms everything I have been reporting about this incident. But there appears to be a massive cover-up by Australian media and law enforcement. In any case, this clearly deranged individual was unlikely to have been coolly and calmly carrying out an act of jihad, as we have seen jihadis do so often. Rather, Islam’s justification for violence fed and fueled his already-present rage and tendency to resort to violence.
