Sanders: Don't blame Islam for Orlando shooting
by Jonathan Easley
Bernie Sanders on Tuesday lashed out at those who blame Islam for the shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando.
Speaking at an impromptu press conference outside his campaign headquarters, Sanders, a Democratic presidential candidate, said the gunman's motives are complicated and remain largely unknown.
"Was he motivated by the ideology of some fanatic Islamic organization which believes it is somehow heroic to mow down innocent and defenseless men and women?" Sanders asked.
