ABOVE: Andrey Karlov, Russian Ambassador to Turkey, delivering a public speech just seconds before being shot by off-duty Turkish policeman, Mevlut Mert Altinas. In one of the most graphic modern examples of Islamic-Extremist-Terrorism-As-Public-Theater, Altinas continued to wave his gun at the crowd after the shooting, declared his act as sanctified in the Name of Allah, and that Karlov’s death was necessary as vengeance for the deaths of the civilians of Aleppo.

A TRANSLATION OF ALTINAS’S SEQUENTIAL STATEMENTS IMMEDIATELY POST-ASSASSINATION:

-Allahu Akbar! (God is [the] Greatest!) {Arabic}

-Allahu Akbar! (God is [the] Greatest!) {Arabic}

-We are those who [are compelled] to wage jihad until our final hour [on earth, i.e., until death takes us from this life]! {unclear Arabic}

-Allahu Akbar! (Allah is the greatest)” {Arabic}

-Do not forget Syria and Aleppo! {Turkish}

-Do not forget Syria and Aleppo! {Turkish}

-For as long as our [Islamic/Muslim-occupied] cities remain in danger, you [the foreign/non-Muslim occupiers] will not be able to taste [the comfort and security of your own] safety! {Turkish}

-Move away! {Turkish}

-Move away! {Turkish}

-Only death can take me away from this place! {Turkish}

-Whoever [has a share in/is responsible for] this oppression [unclear: “in Aleppo and Syria”], all of them will be punished one by one! {Turkish}
