    Oh okay then- you're totally correct and I'm wrong. Islam isn't responsible for many terrorist attacks....... :rolleyes:
    You're boring mate.

    We don't know for sure that they are recent refugees though. Haven't most attacks to date been committed by actual citizens who have lived in the West for a long time as opposed to recent immigrants?
    True, but this is on a whole other level :/

    To be honest I agree, this would at least be organised by long-standing residents.. but politically it'll be a very hard sell to stand up and remain committed to taking in refugees without a huge public backlash, in my view

    I suppose they could portray it as France saying "what we've experienced is only a small fraction of what these refugees have had to live with for years now, so we can empathise and will keep welcoming them to safety" - but that seems pretty remote

    I think political pressure and maybe panic as to how to actually defend against this threat?

    Also pointing out that those wanting to kill every muslim in Europe for the few committing attacks, you are promoting terrorism. Terrorism isn't just about Islam, it's about everyone, and killing innocent people is terrorism.
    Well, no, killing innocent people is murder.

    Terrorism is achieving political objectives through fear. You don't need to kill people to carry out terrorism. Bomb scares, envelopes containing white powder, death threats, leaving dead animals on people's doorsteps - that's all terrorism too.

    The pro-life campaign in America and the anti-vivisectionists here also achieve their aims through terrorism, we just tend not to call it that.

    It is much easier to just brand groups of people as 'terrorists' as a way of 'othering' them, which is what you did, despite meaning not to.

    Tricky, innit?

    Errrr no they are not. They are saying 99% of terrorists follow Islam, therefore there is something wrong with Islam. None of the other religions have these problems.....
    what makes you sure they follow islam though?

    They can claim to follow Islam but it doesn't mean they do...there is clearly something wrong with them...

    People can claim that they are doing this in the name of 'a religon' but they may just be ill or just sociopaths...

    They are killing their own muslims...i don't get it or their own agenda?

    George Bush was a terrorist that killed Millions of innocent civilians. He achieved the aims of the Illuminati by destabilizing the middle east.

    5 Million muslims live in france, highest in Europe.
    "Paris muslims struggle to feel accepted"
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-32053906

    high youth unemployment and limited economic mobility may make radicalization more achievable for extremists.
    You would expect issues such as this to occur.
    It takes more than that for someone to be drawn into mass-murder. You don't just go on a killing spree because you don't feel very accepted and live in a council house. You go to your GP for anxiety counselling and your local college to gain qualifications...

    Why are there no sociopaths killing in the name of Sikhism?
    Why are there no sociopaths killing in the name of Hinduism?
    Why are there no no sociopaths killing in the name of Orthodox Christianity?

    Get the idea?

    Did you read what else i also said?

    It will make radicalization easier. Look at the news currently , constantly talking about conflicts in the middle east. Add this to them being unemployed and jobless , the mindless will get radicalized and will seek "revenge".

    Why would someone commit mass murder and then pass the focus off of them onto a religion... unless they wanted to affiliate themselves with said religion.
