I don’t know that the tragic events of today are even related to a Muslim nor do I have a sense that it was a terrorist attack at this stage (it certainly has all the hallmarks). Yet, this Imam seems somehow convinced and offers his solution. The one thing I will say about him, is that he comes across as very sincere.
I've enjoyed being a computer science professor in Melbourne, Australia, as well as band leader/singer for the Schnapps Band.
My high schooling was in Chabad and I continued at Yeshivat Kerem B'Yavneh in Israel and later in life at Machon L'Hora'ah, Yeshivas Halichos Olam.

Why do you think he is a radical Muslim?
This is a case where you’ve probably assumed ‘radical’ as per recent press vs the dictionary meaning. He’s radical because this is a view that is not widely held by Muslims themselves and is expressed by an alleged Imam in a country that does not support the death penalty.
Like Salman Rushdie, he’ll be a marked man.
I hope not
Would make him a radical radical Muslim?
Only through the lens of Muslims?
