    if it is a terrorist attack by Muslims who cares? I don't. I know full well that;
    1) It wasn't really Islam (see the no true Scotsman argument)
    2) Muslims are the victims when they face a backlash (the real victims are ignored)
    3) That another one will happen again.
    4) Despite point 3 Merkel, Hollande and call me Dave will continue importing Muslims when the current number is already too high. And when Turkey joins the EU along with this existing migrant crisis god help us.

    And last, but most importantly;

    5) The sheeple will moan but not do anything. They will continue voting for the same old parties. And nothing will change. There won't even be any protests, nothing.

    Maybe true in the UK, but not France. Remember the 2 million on the streets after Charlie Hebdo?

    If a white kid shoots people in the US it makes headline news.

    When black and Mexican kids shoot someone then it makes no news even though they are responsible for huge numbers of crime and in particular shootings, much more than their numbers should suggest.

    Why bring race into this? No idea why people do to be honest.
    Do you wanna read what I said after I made that post? I wasn't actually saying the shooter could be white. Blimey what's wrong with people.

    I was referring to the general argument people make when discussing this, I didn't see your posts.

    I guess it's okay for people to make assumptions of the shooter being Muslim before it's been announced, but God forbid you say (as sarcasm to show the stupidity of making assumptions and generalisations) that it could be a white man.

    I am going to ask you which groups do this kind of thing in Europe-terrorise people and generally attack civilised life.

    Atheists.
    Agnostics.
    Buddhists.
    Christians.
    Hindus.
    Sikhs.
    Muslims.
    Jews.
    Followers of Shinto.

    Most of the above actually exist peacefully together. Multiculturalism is not the problem here, just one culture is? Perhaps? All the other cultures accept Multiculturalism.

    I personally would like to hear facts first before making assumptions. What does you assuming it's a Muslim even bring to the table? What difference does that make? I never once said that people killing in the name of Islam is okay. I just have a problem with people assuming and generalising ALL muslims, when it's a bloody obvious fact that not all Muslims are terrorists. The Muslims that do carry out these acts are an incredibly small percentage of the population of Muslims in this world. How ****ing thick are you?
    The reason why I make the assumption that they are Muslim without any proof is to outline the fact that this has gotten to such a high scale that I can guess blindly and still be proven right. Nothing happens and nothing changes, something has to give and once people can recognise that we can figure out what it is. Answer me this honestly 100%, Why did the gunman do it? I don't know is not a valid answer.

    'SHOOTING IS SAID TO BE CONTINUING' ****ing hell
    I for one am absolutely sick of this. Sick to my back teeth. Good people are being butchered, murdered, in their own countries.

    You get what you vote for. Hopefully people now will finally learn this.

    Haha CLASSIC line. "Not all Muslims are terrorists, but all terrorists are Muslims." Do some research on terrorism, and learn that it's not only committed by Muslims.

    I guess back when the IRA were operating it would be perfectly fine to say that all terrorists are Irish? Get the **** out of here lol.
    You do realise the IRA weren't committing terrorism in the name of religion, yes? It was nationalism, which happened to also be divided by religion....

    Actually no, this time I'm going to be the adult of this situation and instead of wondering about the killer I'll think about the victims. I emplore you to follow my example from now on in this thread.

    Today in the news a Muslim woman was pushed in front of a train. She somehow managed to survive.

    After these attacks I imagine that the above will be happening much more often. I suspect that people will not be feeling very peaceful toward the (entirely self-proclaimed) religion of peace.

    They were still branded as terrorists though. Terrorism isn't only defined by religion. I mean if the British Government themselves branded the IRA as terrorists why are you arguing? You completely missed my point, I used them as an example for how stupid it is to say all terrorists are Muslims, because back when the IRA were around people probably weren't saying all terrorists are Irish.

    Look I don't know why the gunman did it. You're still not getting my point. I'm heartbroken by this news. I have not once said that I condone Muslim terrorists or support them. I simply showed that I find it ignorant to assume and generalise...
