    Russia has a substantial Muslim population.
    Is it me or is it amazing that people do not know this?

    Doesn't mean that the attack has any religious motive, though. There's a myriad of reasons for why they might have done it.

    They've surrounded someone else, not the 19 year old. This is so confusing

    For goodness sake. Muslims are behind a global terror campaign on a scale never seen before.

    There isn't a single day that passes where there isn't a bomb going off.

    Every other week another cell gets busted in the UK trying to mass murder British citizens.

    And we have people like you on here making out like it's some unheard of event for Muslims to be responsible.

    Statistically, Muslims are more likely to be involved in terrorism than every other religion COMBINED. Do you understand that? COMBINED.

    This surely will not end well? He's either going to kill himself before the police get to him, or he'll kill himself in style and take a few others out with him (possibly police).

    Hoping we find out the motive behind all this :\

    I know that. I never disputed that. But there is NO proof that this is religiously motivated, so frankly you're the one being stupid by making assumptions based upon your own bigotry. There's over a billion Muslims in the world, statistically any group of people that large is going to have bad eggs. Don't tar everyone with the same brush, it makes you look bad not them.

    It's Muslims like most of us non-apologists for terror thought it was.

    Whether he comes from Arabia or Pakistan makes no difference.

    White converts to Islam have been terrorists too.

    This isn't about race, it's about the most violent, virulent, misogynistic, oppressive culture of death known as Islam.

    I have spoken to several americans that scoffed at the idea that Russia was partly asian.
    Americans have a weird view of the big eastern and central chunk of Eurasia known as Asia:

    - East Asians (anyone with slant eyes or low nose bridge to be honest) are 'Asians'

    - Everything else is 'the Middle-East'

    - The Middle-East is not in Asia.

    - The Middle-East is not in Europe.

    - The Middle-East is not in Africa.

    - Yet the Middle-East is not its own continent, such an idea is laughably foolish to the point of hysterical denial.

    - They seem to know that this is simply how they perceive Asia rather than it being factual, yet if YOU state this or agree, they will go ape **** and repeat all the above.

    - Then they will tell you you just don't understand, moron.

    - Especially if you yourself are Asian.

    They don't even view this life as important. Hence why they're so willing to die.

    They think life is just a mere tedious vehicle for the sweet afterlife where virgins will be waiting on them hand and foot.

    I personally didn't think they wanted to die, they thought they would get away with it. Until they saw their pictures all over all media.

    I agree. The swiftness with which they were identified, the detail of the photos, the way the police and FBI have responded... this is absolutely unprecedented.

    This. Islam is not a race. It is a man-made belief system, and it is a choice to be a Muslim, therefore it is entirely legitimate to criticise it.

    But how could they not know what there were CCTV and everything there? They were incredibly stupid.
