A good story in the face of all the hostility going on at the moment.

If people, all people of all races and religions, stand together then the fanatics don't stand a chance.
You missed the part about the Islamist terrorist killing a passenger.

I didn't miss it. The passenger tried to run away and unfortunately was shot. The rest stood firm and refused to be separated from their fellow Christian travellers.

"The locals showed a sense of patriotism and belonging to each other," Mandera governor Ali Roba told Kenya's private Daily Nation newspaper.

The militants decided to leave after the passengers' show of unity, he added."

The article says two people were shot, but doesn't say anything about the second person.

Re: All about Muslims (in the wake of terrorist attacks in Europe)

Brave passengers, but unarmed. 2 were killed, none of the Islamist were killed. Other than a feel good headline, the Islamist won.

It would be far better if Muslims would defeat the Islamists. There are over a million newly arrived able bodied Muslim man in Europe, who were not afraid of rough seas and long treks, surely they would cherish the chance to defeat the people who made them refugees.

Re: All about Muslims (in the wake of terrorist attacks in Europe)

No, the Islamists lost - they didn't massacre everyone and ordinary people stood up to them.

I tend to agree with you about the men fleeing though. If you don't like what's happening in your country then fight to make it better, don't leave. But then we know most aren't true refugees, but economic migrants trying it on.

It's a moral victory at most. such "victories" won't solve the problem of Islamist terrorism.

Seems to be a good chance that Sadiq Khan will be voted in as the first Muslim mayor of London

Well, that'll really convince Trump that London is now an Islamist terrorist stronghold.

Re: All about Muslims (in the wake of terrorist attacks in Europe)

One would have thought that such system will never be revoked?

Two months after the Paris attacks, Belgium is in the midst of an anguished debate about Islamist radicalisation. There's anger in Molenbeek - the Brussels district that was home to three of the attackers - at government plans for house-to-house searches. And a former senior police official has warned that Belgium's failure to integrate its Muslim minority has created a de facto "system of apartheid".

Has Belgium created 'a system of apartheid'?

My friend used to live in Bruxelles and saw the things in a very different way, an immigrant herself. (lived in a so-called bad area and was confronted with weird episodes coming from the locals..)

Can you actually believe it? Way to destroy any public sentiment, and if the last 10 years is anything to go by this is typical of behaviour of such "lobby groups" towards host countries when the population becomes established.

Rather than integrate into the host country, the host country should change their hallowed national flag which is among the most recognisable in the world?

Utterly outrageous.
Oh. My. God. I can actually believe it. They've found themselves in a democractic country with freedom of speech and decided to engage with the civil society structures around them by "calling for something" they want rather than rushing to their nearest AK47 or cowering in fear. How will they ever integrate

Its not even something they want, it was a poor joke that got out of hand, and actually Ivica Petrusic is a Christian Bosnian Croat but you wouldn't have gotten that from the breathless article RD posted.

Re: All about Muslims (in the wake of terrorist attacks in Europe)

How does one pull a joke on oneself? Sounds more like he had to call it a joke, after realising its impact.

It is a pretty thick idea for foreigners to ask to customize of the country they are hosted in. Way to galvanize anti-foreigner sentiments.

Well at least no bombs nor violence were used that time.

Foreigners? Who? People who were born here? Or are these things to be measured genetically? Perhaps only white people qualify?
