He tried shooting up Muslims in a Mosque while they were celebrating a holiday. Ended up w/ 2 black eyes by UN ARMED Muslim Grandpa ❤ (Also if you don't know a Muslim or have a Muslim friend, you do now. Follow. Ignorance isn't bliss. Hate is not ok) independent.co.uk/news/world/eur…
let me reiterate: the man was a RETIRED AIR FORCE OFFICER. tackled an armed assailant with his bare hands and no weapons. 65 years old. what a fucking badass
Why haven't I seen this on the news?
Imagine thinking your race is genetically superior only to get your ass whooped by an unarmed brown elder three times your age lol
He disarmed him while bullets were flying out of his gun. He disarmed him unarmed. He was able to stop him before he could kill anyone. Cherry on top he gave the terrorist 2 black eyes.

He is a HERO

All this "good guy with a gun" rubbish doesn't wash. A good guy without a gun stopped a bad guy with a gun.
Good guy without gun beats guy with with lots of guns.
REMINDER: A gun doesn't make make you a badass.

Putting your life on the line, against the odds, in defense of your family & community...
THAT makes you a badass.
Wow!!!!! This thread ♥️
In reply to @_SJPeace_
This man was willing to sacrifice himself to save his community and the people in his local mosque.. can those who judge him say they would do the same?
He took down an active shooter with his BARE HANDS. You can’t get anymore hardcore than that
Muslim Hero Mohamed Rafiq!!
So proud of this elder for stopping an insane white supremacist
In reply to @_SJPeace_
This! What happened was tragic, this bastard killed his 17 year old stepsister then attacked the mosque.. THIS 65 YEAR OLD IS A HERO, HE SAVED ALOT OF PEOPLE BY DOING WHAT HE DID 💜
Rafiq is more Norwegian than that man will ever be.
Ah, a good guy with a fist stopped a bad guy with a gun. Imagine that?
In reply to @_SJPeace_
That man is such a hero. Bless his soul 💙
In reply to @_SJPeace_
He looks fierce and proud! He is a hero!!!
In reply to @_SJPeace_
And those bare knuckles left some very distinctive calling cards on the smug young face.
THEN read description...about this terrorist attack.

Friend from the middle east told me:
"Remember movies growing up. Arab person with darker skin was always the enemy. Don't let that get in the way."

To re-pattern from stereotypes takes persistence.

Mohamed Rafiq is extremely brave and definitely a true hero. His name and brave actions needs to go viral.
In reply to @_SJPeace_
Honestly, my stereotypical terrorist is 21 and white at this point.
Y’all know babas don’t play 👊🏾
Mohamed Rafiq is a hero.
In reply to @_SJPeace_
How do you say "Total Badass" in Arabic?
Bapu Ji beat the mess out this terrorist leh hor pangeh puttra
My man Mohamed should had ended his life but he believes in peace so the little dirt bag is lucky
Stereotypes only benefit oppressors.

A hero is a hero no matter what he or she looks like! I’m glad he did what he did praise the Lord! He’s a hero!
In reply to @_SJPeace_
That's not just heroic, that's super badass!
In reply to @_SJPeace_
I’m more afraid of young white men! My Turkish husband and his family were so welcoming and loving when we visited! 💗

This grandpa reminds me of the great Libyan rebel Omar Mukhtar played by Anthony Quinn in Lion of the desert. pic.twitter.com/ntVJyeW6cr
In reply to @_SJPeace_
I hope he gets all the respect he deserves. What a guy!
In reply to @_SJPeace_
Remember when trump asked why don't we get more people from Norway? I guarantee he had no idea they had any Muslim population.
In reply to @_SJPeace_
The shooter certainly looks sane and grounded...😳
Can I get a YEEHAW for this based grandpa who saved the day.
In reply to @_SJPeace_
Thank goodness he was there and no one was hurt. Mr. Rafiq is an example for the rest of us.
In reply to @_SJPeace_
I’m gonna start this off by saying this man is BRAVE. He must love his country dearly to put his life in danger like this and protect his people. But where did this take place? This doesn’t look like America 🤷🏾‍♂️
Got his ass BEAT. And rightfully so. 💗 Good on Mohamed.
We need more heroes, and this good man is one. Let's give him a standing ovation!!!👏👏👏👏💙💙💙💜
The sad thing about posts like these is that the people who need to see it the most will not
That’s right! Fucked his bitch ass up 😤😤
The good guy that Trump and the GOP will never accept.


He's brown.
Lmfao look at buddy’s face, that nigga Rafiq got them hands
White people really the terrorist.
In reply to @_SJPeace_
If that had happened in America, the white guy would have ended up suing the other guy for infringing on his free expression of his Second Amendment rights. 🙄
Did it without a gun. Seems the good guys don’t necessarily need guns. Change the narrative.
They finally beat the shit out of a shooter 😂😂😂😂🙏🏻
In reply to @_SJPeace_
So not to throw cold water on this, why is everyone so whaaaat over the age difference? Sure maybe a little muscle tone diff but tough is usually the factor here and being tough comes with age. Mr. Rafiq exudes toughness. I want him as a neighbour.
they should make a movie on this to hurt yt people's white saviour complex
In reply to @_SJPeace_
Is there video at all? Because I would love to see it. Thank you Mr Rafiq for your brave and selfless actions to save others. 🍃🍃
Shout out to the brave man for saving lives.

I wonder what kind of gun control laws they have in Norway 🤔
And beat the breaks off that clown!!
They should have beat that dude’s ass just a little bit more until he stopped breathing.
It takes an unarmed Muslim to stop a bad guy with a gun.
اليقين ان انته صح و معاك ربنا اعظم من اى سلاح "اللهم انصر الإسلام و اعز المسلمين"
In reply to @_SJPeace_
That smirk he has is bone chilling...
In reply to @_SJPeace_
That's such an amazing story of what could have been tragic. If only everyone was as brave as that grandpa!
Remember all those people who were squeamish about the idea of punching Nazis?

Mr. Rafiq heard their concerns and his elegant solution was to choke a Nazi out instead.
Oh how have times changed.
So only good guys with guns can stop bad guys with guns eh? And at this point, my “stereotypical terrorist” is a 21 year old white man.
In reply to @_SJPeace_
In reply to @_SJPeace_
May we know Mr. Raciq's story ?
In reply to @_SJPeace_
it’s so obvious when you look at somebody’s face to tell if they’re a good man or not, I don’t understand why people use everything else rather than a person’s face to judge people
In reply to @_SJPeace_
So much for needing a gun to defend against a gunner... Aside: Wasn't there a docu-movie about three unarmed guys who overpowered armed terrorists on an airplane, saving the plane and its passengers?
and ur stereotypical white saviors have been the one to terrorize brown spaces
mohamed rafiq is a total badass YES but

has anyone else thought that the shooter looks like a beat up brie larson 😭😭😭 no hate FR but the resemblance tho 👀
Seriously, if anyone should be concerned about stereotyping, it should be us white American men. Our data does not look good.
This deserves countless retweets man. I watched the vid and the 65yo actually got his eye poked finger depth and he still fought.
Dat jij, een twintiger met een geweer, een Dapper en Waarlijk Strijder voor Onze Cultuur, wordt overmeesterd door een ongewapende man van 65. En dan achteraf nog zo trots grijnzen. Gênant.
Dejadnos querer al abuelete con turbante y puños de Terminator.
