Soon after news emerged of the Ottawa shooting, social media had already branded the incident as a possible Isis (Islamic State) or another Middle East Muslim militant group attack, but pro-Muslims are using the opportunity to draw attention to the numerous lives that are being lost everyday in the Middle East due to the west-driven War on Terror.
Streets in Ottawa are feeling like the Middle East

Some are sarcastically pondering if the incident will prompt more Middle East bombing.
Response to Ottawa shootings must surely be to restrict Canadians' freedoms and bomb the middle east. Right? #ottawashooting

Others are demanding a reassessment of Canada's commitment to fight Isis (Islamic State).

Yet others are wondering if this too is a controversy.
It is still unconfirmed if the shooting was in fact an act of terrorism.
Ottawa police say it's "too early" to tell whether today's shooting incidents are linked to terrorism http://t.co/xQJkiW13cL
