    There is literally no confirmation that there was terrorism involved as of now (23:38). If it was a terrorist incident, then we can start talking about motivations of the terrorists and their religion but as of now it could a mentally deranged individual, a drunk driver or a number of different possibilities. Of course, the fact that it's Bastille day suggests that this may be a terror attack but we can't be sure for another few hours until we get some clear information.

    Quit deluding yourself. It is becoming clear that Muslims cannot live peacefully alongside other non-muslim people. It would be best if they all go to their Islamic lands, we won't bomb/invade/interfere with them, they can get on with their thing and we can get on with ours. Unfortunately nobody has the guts to stand up and make it happen.
    Some of my best friends/ doctors have been Muslims, why should they have to move for the actions of another. Reminds me of those a*sehole school teachers that would pointlessly keep a whole class back for the actions of a few.

    Hell, one of my favourite wrestlers is a syrian Muslim (Sami Zayn) and one of the best role models for the young audience.

    Sounds like Jainism to me, I mean who else could pull off such an evil attack? It couldn't be that religion of peace right? That one which brought peace to a land stretching from Portugal to China in 100 years, which was totally 100% consensual.

    In that case why is that Muslims make up the vast majority of terrorist causalities?
    I'm not really sure how thats related?

    Also the "Muslims are the majority of victims of terrorist attacks" is debatable, it's true that the majority are in Muslim-majority countries, but that isnt the same thing.

    What I don't get is that the lorry was ploughing through the French for about a mile! Why didn't one of the French just put a few bullets either into the driver or into the tires (to stop the truck)?

    I was at the Bastille Day fireworks there a few years ago and it attracts a very large crowd. Thoughts for all those injured or bereaved.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again: state multiculturalism has failed (Cameron, 2011), and mass inter-civilisational immigration has left UK/Europe/The West wide open to retrograde, alien ethno-cultures that have no place in the civilised world. Never mind this latest in a long line of Islamic atrocities, "the time for a moratorium on Muslim immigration was 7/7, if not 9/11"

    High time countries like France woke up and realised that declaring a state of emergency is ineffective when you have millions of active/potential enemy combatants living among you, most of whom have a fervant belief in deeply ingrained, fundamentally incompatible, religious dogma, and all of whom have a sacred religious duty to put Allah above all and to answer the call to jihad

    For too long we have tolerated the intolerant, and more contemporarily - the intolerable. We now need to have a conversation about the inconvenient truth that is The Clash of Civilisations, to acknowledge that there is a reason that, historically, no significant Islamic population has ever been sustained, without significant bloodshed/social upheaval, outside of the Muslim world, and to collectively come to the only rational, erudite, perspicacious, and prescient conclusion:

    These people must renounce their backward ethno-cultural beliefs/practices, declare allegiance to our society, values, and broadly subscribe, contribute to, and invest in our way of life, or else be repatriated. Nothing short will suffice, and we will see growing extremism (on both sides) until such time as this issue is robustly resolved. Sound-bites intended to placate the masses won't cut it when many more will perish/suffer prejudice

    If the French people want these terrorist attacks to stop, they need to elect Marine Le Pen as president and elect a FN majority in the National Assembly in 2017.

    Wherever I see avoidable human/ecological suffering e.g. particularly the type that people don't quite fully comprehend, I speak out

    Flowers and candles will protect us from these attacks
    Oh totes :hippie:
