I posted a link, quoted the headline and without comment.

You need to jog on.
Porky pies too.


Linked article headline reads, "Man knifes French woman and her three daughters' in Alps resort"


and the quote is from the very same article.

And exactly the same circular arguments are made on each thread - much the same as the shooting threads. I suppose it make it makes sense to have a single reliable source for your daily "all Muslims/refugees/immigrants/religions are/aren't terrorists/evil/peace-loving/average-people/barbaric and you are racist/sheeple/idiotic/blind if you don't agree" fix.

As a IS member he should have enough support. Molebeek, the purported slum full of islamist radicals, is only 400km away.

I saw the same claim on mirror.co.uk. Even yesterday noon they still said that.
"were reportedly stabbed in a French holiday resort for being 'scantily dressed'."

Edit:
Mhhh, in a different article on a different issue, also in France, the first picture shows police labeled in German but the description says "Police are seen near the Formula 1 hotel in Bollene, France", a very obvious lie. Is this level of truthfulness standard for the Mirror?

Re: An Islamic Terrorist Attack just Happened in (*Fill in the Blank*)

Ah, the youth of today. When I was 17, life was a collage of exams, zits and trying to get laid.

Didn't have time to make flags or thinking of ways to kill innocent people.

Not that this excuses anything, but I can hazard a guess you didn't grow up in a war zone, under the control of tribal and religious zealots, being told that America and the West are evil sinners.

The Mirror is basically a tabloid, not my first source for news. But multiple outlets claimed the same thing, that he stabbed the women for being too scantily dressed. (Eg. Euronews). But now they are walking it back and saying the motive is "unclear". Either it was just a rumor or maybe authorities want to down-play it like the German police initially did in NYE Köln sex-attacks as not to provoke "anti-Muslim/immigrant backlash". Guess we will have to wait and see...

I think that's the most relevant post of the thread so far: The point is not that the kids are 15 and alone in Germany... that's not an excuse to become an axe murderer.


But growing up in a war zone, making the crazy dangerous trip through the med and over the Balkans will surely cause more cases of PTSD than western soldiers in Iraq driving around in armoured vehicles. Even if only one out of a thousand is at risk of losing it... that leaves us with a thousand boys in Germany alone. Blaming this all on their religion is just idiotic.

Re: An Islamic Terrorist Attack just Happened in (*Fill in the Blank*)

I'm stopping me actually. I do not want to rehash the same vitriol day after day to no end. Making myself sick with my anger and my frustration at not everyone sharing my whiter than white opinions. Life is to short to read another thread based on fear and ignorance.

It's current news, front page of all the newspapers today. Should we ignore it and pretend it didn't happen?
AMAZING what makes front page news and what doesn't.... part of the problem me thinks, media control and manipulation, and you guys swallow it hook line and sinker.

So in the end, this is just nice to know. There's anything up to 100,000 unaccompanied minors claiming asylum in Germany and no real way of knowing who they are or preventing this from happening again. Whatever the cause, this is the result.

The Nice attacker didn't grow up in a war zone, he was from Morocco. What's his excuse? The Brussels bombers grew up in Belgium. What's their excuse? You can make excuses all day long, but the common thread is...guess what? "Allu Akbar!" Ignoring that they were sucked into a hateful ideology is just idiotic.

Mass immigration into Europe from mainly Muslim lands is a big issue right now, especially as they are bringing their problems here with them. Limiting migration, and screening and handling the migrants correctly is not being done. That's a security problem that is not being addressed. It need to be on the front page so politicians wake up and look at it and take some action.
