    True , it really frustrates me i used to think Islam is a " peaceful religion " and i am sure the majority of Muslims living in Europe are not extremists and are perfectly decent people but as soon as i think this some extreme Muslims have to prove some people right in saying Islam is not a peaceful region and therefore it needs removing of the face of the earth it may be harsh but its true
    We have to remember that there are 1.6bn Muslims in the world and growing. Thankfully as you say most of them are peaceful, non-extreme people - but there is simply no way to erradicate the religion regardless of what we want to do. The only thing we can do is work to counter radicalisation and ensure there is as much security as possible to deter the plans of those who are willing to enact violence. As difficult as it is, the only way to do this is to ensure we don't blame Muslims as a whole or their religion; push the message as much as possible that these actions are unislamic; and restate our beliefe that fundamentally the vast majority of Muslims have good moral values, beliefs, traditions and cultures which are entirely compatible with western lifestyles. Target the actual extremeists, sure, but we have to in tandem with that work to try and make sure as few people as possible (around the world, not just in Britain) are radicalised in the first place.

    Your quote below also underlines why being anti-immigration isn't the answer: western citizens themselves are being radicalised which removes any purpose from this. It will only serve to increase tensions and the chances of further extremeist activity.

    I Am Not being Anti Immigration i am saying we need to wiped the poisonous ideology and the extreme islamic fundamentalist off the face of the earth ... there is no place for hatred of western cultures in europe therefore we need to combat and take direct action against ISIL and other terrorist groups We cant just let this slide by

    Is the Strasbourg derailment at all linked, or just an unfortunate coincidence?

    It seems there is a police operation in Brussels as well, I make that 5 countries affected now:
    France (goes without saying)
    UK (Gatwick evacuation and gunman arrest)
    Germany (Vehicle intercepted in Bavaria last week)
    Netherlands (Schiphol evacuaction?)
    Belgium (Police operation in Brussels)

    I have a feeling Paris may turn out to be the tip of an iceberg.

    The Train Incident is believed to be NOT Linked to the Attacks on Paris

    - French man arrested in Gatwick over having a firearm
    - Belgium police raid properties
    - Schools to open Monday
    - " Small number " of British people effected in France

    Given at least one attacker was a citizen of France it's important that it is not given all of the blame.

    I disagree. It's all about how you interpret something. You can interpret all religious texts in a peaceful or extreme way.

    Given that approximately 0.003% of all muslims are members of ISIS, Al-Qaeda or Boko Haram, I'm willing to bet that Islam is a religion of peace with a few people interpreting it wrong to justify horrendous crimes.

    Islam is not a peaceful religion.

    Peaceful muslims are ordinary people who allow their common sense, humanity, and education to override their religious views; just like most christians have.

    There you have it… I hope that people will finally wake up and realise what they've done and allowed to be done to Europe and take it back! I also hope that this encounter with the worst of human scum will make you, my colleagues, reconsider capital punishment.
    These suicide bombers are going to be so very scared of being executed this will be the end of terrorism!
