US President Barack Obama has condemned the recent “brutal and outrageous murders” of the three Muslim students in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.  

“No one in the United States of America should ever be targeted because of who they are, what they look like, or how they worship,” Obama said in a statement on Friday. “Michelle and I offer our condolences to the victims’ loved ones.”

A hateful middle-aged white man shot dead Deah Shaddy Barakat, 23, his wife Yusor Mohammad Abu-Salha, 21, and her sister, Razan Mohammad Abu-Salha, 19, near the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill campus on Tuesday afternoon.

Obama’s comments came after criticism from Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan over his silence over the tragic incident. Erdogan urged Obama to condemn the killing that has caused outrage among Muslims all over the world.

Meanwhile, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, through his spokesman, expressed his sadness over the murders but stopped short of condemning the incident. Ban also called for a full probe into all aspects of the incident.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) said on Thursday night that it has launched an inquiry into the killing, after families of the victims denounced police for not pursuing the case as a hate crime.

Local police have launched a homicide investigation focusing on a dispute over a parking space, but the families have rejected that narrative, describing the killing an “execution-style murder” and a “hate crime”.

The FBI’s main North Carolina office said that the agency would continue to help the local law enforcement agencies with their ongoing investigation.

“The FBI has also opened a parallel preliminary inquiry to determine whether or not any federal laws were violated related to the case,” said Shalley Lynch, media coordinator for the Charlotte field office of the FBI.

The father of the two female students shot dead told the crowd during their funereal on Thursday they were victims of a hate crime and his pain was indescribable. Mohammad Abu-Salha demanded that investigators treat the killing as a hate crime.

“I’ve talked to police, I’ve talked to lawyers,” he said, his voice choking with grief. “This has ‘hate-crime’ written all over it.”

    NC state is a completely different school in Raleigh. Not really competitors like Duke is regarded on campus. Did they attend NC State? At UNC we are called Tarheels.

    The hand signal/sign relates to their (North Carolina State) school team mascot, which is a wolf. The team is called the Wolf Pack. Many college and high school teams are named for animals.
    The hand sign represents a wolf’s ears and snout.

    I am from NC. It has a long history of KKK involvement..in fact PBS recently did a documentary of it in NC…they stated during the 60s NC had more members than all the other states combined. Charlotte, NC is banking HQ for the country. The center or piedmont of NC has several large pharmaceutical HQs….Drug studies have been going on at one of the large state run mental institutions without staff ‘s knowledge at Butner NC. ..very close to Chapel Hill.NC has been a police state for years ..When I left from my home outside Asheville NC in the late 90s, road blocks in neighborhoods were frequent, ..having to show license and registration.

    Cathy O’Brien mentioned Duke University in Durham NC as being part of the MKUltra network. My father was in a pedophile ring with several Duke doctors and local law enforcement , judges etc.Very close to Chapel Hill. Then there is Ft. Bragg , about 1 1/2 hour drive which is also heavily involved with MKUltra.

    I am sure the Koch brothers have their fingers in the pie but it is the owner of Family Dollar Stores who has bought up the state. I can’t remember his name right now.

    …unless they’re an American on the NDAA indefinite detention list.

    I looked at the hand signs, and I am at a loss. I did pause when father said its a hate crime. Why re-state the obvious, ,.. the hand signs are just weird. Like Jean said, I have gotten to the point where anything is possible, ..

    What do you make of the hand signals?

    I went to UNC-Chapel Hill and graduated in 1995. I remember a shooting of a jogger that was very sad while I was there. And I was once married to a Muslim man of whom I am still fond.
    I cried horribly when I first read the story. Then I scrolled down and saw a photo. I can’t locate the full, original picture anymore on the web; I did try to post it to Divine Cosmos yesterday and do not see it posted there with the currents. And, of course, I recognize that the signals, (perhaps) have a benign origin.

    Here is the link below. The African-American man on the right, who is cut out of this link’s photo, also was making the exact same hand signal in the orignal that I was able to view yesterday…..

      Kay, I can’t respond to your comment, but I’m pretty certain the Koch Brothers control a huge amount of North Carolina. They went in there and totally destroyed the wonderful education system so quickly it boggles my mind. I wouldn’t put anything past them. 🙂 Hugs, ~Jean
