    So sad to hear of another attack. The needless loss of life around the world over the past months and years has been utterly heartbreaking.

    Let's hope things are sorted out quickly with no loss of life if possible

    Does that matter?
    People visit countries for the cultural experience and so the economic situation doesnt factor in very much.

    And I suppose getting murdered by Jihadist is part of that "cultural experience"?

    Not sure why you'd visit them specifically when other countries in the region can offer a similar cultural experience without having an Islamist insurgency in the north of the country or a bunch of Touareg gun runners in the rural areas

    Tourists in London and Paris also got murdered by jihadists. What's your point?

    can't muslims ever have a day off...
    let me just make this clear to you and to everyone here... ISIS are NOT Muslims they are a group of people who don't like the way Islam is being followed so they made up their own little religion and said this is the right way to follow Islam BUT it's NOT... Islam never said to kill innocent people or suicide or force people to follow Islam, however ISIS did! Actually, Islam says the complete opposite,, suicide is not allowed in Islam because God gave you this life and only he can take it away... You can't force people to follow this religion because if they are not convinced by this religion and they don't believe in it there will be no meaning for them to become Muslims... the Quran says "There is no compulsion and coercion in regard to religion". religion here signifies the belief about God embodied in the above verse and the entire system of life which rests upon it. The verse means that the system of Islam, embracing belief, morals and practical conduct cannot be imposed by compulsion. These are not things to which people can be yoked forcibly. ISIS does not represent Islam or Muslims please get this straight!

    Yeah lots of these terrorists claim to be Muslims but let's be real they're not religious if their aim is killing people instead of worshipping god at home. Lmfao something wrong with their brains happened and not just that also their hearts. These people just need an excuse to go around killing people.
