    I never once suggested that 'suspected terrorist' incident meant Islam. Let's not speculate. As I said before, there's absolutely no indication that this is affiliated with Islam.
    Yes, I was just adding to your post lest the usual suspects are having a go at muslims ago.

    Well, I shan't comment on that because it's not my place but sorry for jumping to my own defence there. Thanks for clarifying tho!

    It was a Muslim terrorist!
    no. The shooter appears to be German and not of foreign descent. Could be a Muslim convert but no reports of that yet.

    I didn't realise you knew the shooter personally
    No I didn't.


    I actually waited until more information was available and went on Sky News. Eyewitnesses said that the shooter exclaimed that he was German and shouted "**** immigrants".

    Police also rule out Islamic Terrorism.

    Attacker was not Muslim. We can confirm that now. He may have been a Nazi

    I've seen more sources stating anti-immigrant comments were shouted, plus considering today is the 5th anniversary of Ander Breivik shooting, it would seem to me that far-right groups might be the most probable culprits. Although we obviously cant rule out an Islamist attack.

    Only CNN is reporting that, all other media saying witnesses did not hear anything of that sorts.

    This isn't actually true. A bystander actually shouted "****ing foreigner" at the shooter himself.

    Sky's Sam Kiley says a video has emerged of one of the gunmen filmed from a rooftop in Munich. In it the gunman says: "I'm a German" and he grew up on benefits. And he talks about some kind of treatment. It's not clear if he is talking about medical treatment or treatment that he is claiming to be the victim of.

    Witnesses said that the terrorist was a white man who shouted "I'm German!" and "**** immigrants!" as he shot innocent by bystanders
    (Original post by The Guardian)
    A Munich police spokesman says there is no indication of Islamist terror.
    This information has been out for a while. I have already posted this.

    You have also seemed to delete your post stating "false". These sources back my claims so, True.

    They haven't ruled it out, they have stated that currently there is no indication. Currently they don't even know how many people are involved (it appears there are three, but no one knows for sure) or who they are.*
