2015 and 2016 are the last two years? Still in your winter hibernation?
For which figures have been made public - of course. One would have thought you could have worked that bit out for yourself.


This is the government which prevented numbers being made public on the ethnicity of serious criminals - am sure you are fully supportive of such censorship and yet now in an election year the prime minister says he is not afraid of calling in the army to handle "gangs"... interesting that !?!

A comic misspelling of "hypocrisy" as defined by butthurt forum-goers trying to insult other members. Can be the source of multiple lulz and simultaneous embarrassment by the user trying to appear smart for using a four-syllable word.
"...personally I call that "hypocrasy". Look it up."
"Haha, I can't look it up if it is not spelled right."

Oddly enough Vikings also had a less than favourable reputation that they were rapers and pillagers but history has found that not to be the case.

Apparently they didn't wear helmets with horns sticking out of the sides either.

Funny how rumours perpetuate through misinformation, ignorance and fear, eh..?

From the linked article there's absolutely nothing to suggest otherwise. Citing it in an attempt to support an anti-Muslim (or anti-immigrant, or whatever particular bandwagon you're on) argument is just silly.

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

Eight people have been found guilty of being members of a right-wing terror organization by a court in Germany.

A federal court in Dresden handed down the verdict Wednesday after a yearlong trial of members of the so-called "Freital Group," a terror cell founded in eastern Germany in 2015

Seems it is institutionalised in the US

Child marriage is not a thing of the past in the US: almost 250,000 children were married there between 2000 and 2010, some of them as young as 10.

And not Muslims!

Tennessee GOP kill bill to ban child marriage

Quote:
onprofit group Unchained at Last says it has found at least three marriages in Tennessee involving a child as young as 10 years old, but state officials have disputed that claim.

Jernigan and other supporters of the bill say the loophole led to female minors being married to significantly older men, where they face higher chances of being abused.

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

http://www.20min.ch/schweiz/romandie...lobby-26640526

It seems Muslims are praying and using loudspeakers at the Geneva airport. There is an assigned room available for prayer but for whatever reason, they have chosen to pray in the lobby instead.

My thoughts on this:

1. Loudspeaker? I find this highly intrusive, and to be honest, arrogant. It would also bother me if kids play loud music too. Can't prayer be done quietly?

2. I realize that perhaps due to flight times, they might not have time to use the prayer room. However, if their prayer in the lobby had nothing to do with time issues, then I would feel anger towards their arrogance in not respecting my wishes, and the policy of the airport, of keeping the lobby a neutral place.

I would feel this way about any religion, culture or tour group that I find disruptive.

Your thoughts?
