Why interrupt a good massacre …especially when it involves kuffar being killed?

Families of the Tunisia beach massacre victims today watched a chilling reconstruction video which showed the terrorist’s deadly two-mile journey around the resort where he murdered 30 British tourists.
Relatives had gathered for the first day of the inquest at the Royal Courts of Justice in London which began on Monday morning.
They were shown computer-generated imagery of the popular beach in the coastal resort of Port El Kantaoui on June 26, 2015.
Those inside the court saw the incredibly detailed footage which showed where each holidaymaker was brutally killed.
The inquest was shown satellite images which were the result of 3D scans in more than 300 locations around the resort

The inquest also heard Tunisian security officers could have saved lives by ending the massacre which killed 30 Britons died sooner – but they deliberately wasted time getting to the hotel.
The hearing was told that a local investigation into the tragedy criticised some police for stalling as they made their way to the five-star Riu Imperial Marhaba Hotel in Sousse.
Rezgui ‘systematically’ gunned down the innocent holidaymakers on the hotel’s beach before going into the grounds and the building and killing more, the inquest heard.
Chilling reconstruction footage – which lasted 21 minutes and 38 seconds – was played to the court and showed Rezgui’s movements and the exact route he took on the day.
The names and pictures of the tragic victims popped up on the screen as the detailed video continued.
The images were the result of 3D scans in more than 300 locations around the resorts, which is popular with tourists and holidaymakers.
Families were able to see the path he took, which saw him leave the the beach and into the hotel where he continued to gun down innocent victims.
His route was illustrated by the use of a red arrow and the ‘point-of-view’ footage showed what Rezgui would have seen.
It ended with the gunman making his way past some shops just yards from the beach – before he was shot and killed.
Samantha Leek QC, counsel to the inquest, said a report by Tunisian Judge Akremi had identified failings by local units which could have ended the slaughter before more police arrived and shot Rezgui dead.
She told a courtroom packed with relatives that an unnamed interior minister had told the judge some Tunisian security officers nearby had consciously slowed down their arrival.
Ms Leek said: ‘He said the units that should have intervened in the events deliberately and unjustifiably slowed down to delay their arrival at the hotel.

The inquests into the deaths of the Britons (pictured) killed in the Tunisia beach massacre, in June 2015, began today at the Royal Courts of Justice in London
‘They had the ability to put an end to the attack before the police arrived but wasted a considerable amount of time in getting to the hotel.’
Ms Leek said: ‘On June 26 2015, 38 tourists became the victims of a terrorist attack at the Imperial Marhaba hotel in Sousse, Tunisia.
‘On that day a gunman entered the hotel from the beach, carrying an automatic weapon and a number of explosives.
‘He systematically took the lives of 38 people who had travelled to Tunisia for enjoyment … and relaxation.’
