Carnage at Quebec City Mosque: Was It Muslim on Muslim Violence?

Domestic media along with our ninny of a PM are having a field day wallowing in the "shame on us" (or "shame on Trump") narrative, so you'll have to go elsewhere--the Daily Mail, for instance--to learn at the outset that the two gunmen shouted "Allahu Akbar!" as they opened fire and that one of them is said to be "of Moroccan origin." (The CBC report includes the same info, but buried way, way down, so it's easy to miss.)

Update: At least the Ceeb mentions the jihadi war cry and the shooter's provenance. The New York Times, on the other hand, excludes both but, in keeping with the "shame on Trump" narratives, sees fit to mention this:
Last June, a pig’s head was left at the door of the mosque in the middle of Ramadan. Practicing Muslims regard pork as unclean and do not eat it.
That's the NYT for you. Just doing its part to educate us infidels about the niceties of Islam that everyone already knows.

Update: Gates of Vienna says it could well be a matter of Salafist Muslims taking revenge on Muslim "apostates" (the mosque in question being insufficiently hardline, as far as the gunmen were concerned).

Update: The shooters' names:
The terror suspects were identified as Mohamed Khadir and Alexandre Bissonnette, the Canadian TV network TVA Nouvelles reported.
Must be one of those white, right-wing supremacist/Trump-adoring Mohameds, eh? (That's me tapping into the mainstreamers' preferred narrative).

Update: Last night on CBC TV's Wendy Mesley show, "reformed" right-winger Jonathan Kay slammed conservatives who express fears re "stealth jihad/sharia" (because that's just not done in the rarefied, ultra-refined quarters frequented by Kay and his "superior" ilk).

If the Quebec gunmen do turn out to be Salafists exacting revenge on their more "moderate" brethren, that wouldn't be "stealth" sharia. That would be right-out-in-the-open sharia, and an importation of Islamic/ist pathologies into Justin's "progressive" Trudeaupia. And Kay's egregiously condescending dismissal of "conservatives" and their "fears" will be shown to be the claptrap that, obviously, it is.
