The Usual Suspects Have a Funeral

In Honoring an Extremist:
COPENHAGEN — Scores of men have attended the burial of the 22-year-old Danish Muslim gunman who killed two people and wounded five others at a free speech event and a synagogue in Copenhagen last weekend.

Police called it “a private ceremony” and declined to comment on media reports that up to 500 people attended Omar Abdel Hamid El-Hussein’s funeral Friday in suburban Broendby. Denmark’s TV2 channel said many didn’t know him but came out of respect for his family.
Meanwhile in Canada, moderates are finding a voice:
People in Winnipeg's Muslim community held a rally at the Legislative Building to protest against violence against Canadian soldiers.

[...]

​Supporters at the solidarity rally said they stand shoulder to shoulder with fellow Canadians and unequivocally condemn radicalization and all acts of terror.
