Philadelphia’s newly sworn in mayor is delusional at best but is mostly a HUGE Muslim sympathizer who pandered to the Muslim community during his campaign for mayor. He even signed a “pledge to combat bigotry” at the Al-Aqsa Islamic Society.

Images from the incident show a man dressed in Muslim attire firing off a reported 13 rounds at officer Hartnett. The police officer was hit three times, but did not suffer life threatening injuries and is expected to recover fully, reports said.

“According to him [the shooter], police bend laws that are contrary to the teachings of the Quran,” said Commissioner Ross.
Mayor Kenney, who was inaugurated last week, took a strikingly different tone when coming to the podium:
