    Sorry, which Munich attack are you referring to?

    He shouted Allu Akbar on that. Very Christian saying, that.

    Compassion, flowers and candles never saved any lives and that's exactly the problem. We spend too much time crying over terrorist acts and then moving on without actually tackling the problem.

    Compassion is warranted as no one likes to see people killed or injured but more thought needs to be put into how to prevent the next one.
    Of course. But screaming 'shut the borders' and 'send them all home' is not going to achieve that.
    We need proactive solutions, not just slogans that make us feel good like 'send them home'. And that means the right should stop using every attack to push their anti-immigrant agenda, using the dead people as pawns.

    The problem is that nuance is lost. Yes there is a problem with certain refugees assimilating into society but there is also the issue of trying to help people fleeing war torn countries. Balance is needed, from both sides and leeching onto tragedies like this simply to push a political agenda is not helpful.

    I bet the Germans are glad they let in a million migrants right now. This migrant crisis and the resulting terror attacks will be the death of the EU.
    What a rather ignorant and oversimplified remark. I feel sorry for all the refugees who will now be falsely blamed for the actions of individuals.

    well done to the person who did not allow him in to the music festival.
    It was simply because he had not had the foresight to purchase a ticket. Had he the sense of any normal person the death toll could have been tremendous.

    Given that there is a war in Syria, they let him stay. (not sure where I've read it)
    So anybody saying he's Syrian can stay wherever he wants?

    Terror attacks will be more efficient once refugees understand how society works.

    Yes. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/wo...-10470062.html
    Also, there are some refugees who actually want to go back to Syria, but German authorities wouldn't let them, as they "can't" let them go into an area of war.
    The acceptance of anyone Syrian led to even more Syrians coming in.

    Deport them when they commit crimes or when they have lied to go to Germany.

    Your faux sympathy does nothing but normalise and accept this as the new normal. It doesnt mean anything, it doesnt change anything. It is just empty platitudes.

    Ironically, the people who have been warning about what we now see unfolding have spent the last couple of years being called racist and xenophobe by people like you, the empty platituded virtue signalling refugee welcome fools
    Savage.

    I agree 1000%. You're absolutely right.
