The Montreal Massacre had a Muslim link too

I don't remember seeing this in the news, but Marc Lépine was the son of an Algerian muslim, Rachid Liass Gharbi.   Marc changed his first name from "Gamil".   The dad was abusive and "non-practicing" but it looks to me like the culture of Mohammed played a role.  Marc went after women in non-traditional roles.   What are the odds nowadays he'd have been on-line posting approvingly about ISIS before turning butcher?      Substitute "stick" for "gun" and I'm reminded of the Saudi Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice.

On December 6, 1989, Lépine walked into the École Polytechnique de Montréal. There, he entered a second-floor classroom where he separated the men and women and then ordered the approximately fifty men to leave. Claiming that he was fighting feminism, he shot the nine women who remained, killing six and injuring the rest.
