    However I do think it's important for people to know Muslims are against these attacks 100% I will never condone these terrorist attacks. Ever.
    most Muslims are. comments from Muslims on facebook playing the victim card

    I think the suspect was a legal immigrant, i wonder how he reacts to this
    That's my point. It isn't a natural born American, it isn't a Mexican who walked over the border, it isn't somebody who was visiting America and stayed illegally, it is somebody who was let it, who given what they did unsurprisingly seems to be a Muslim

    Which, depending on how what you wrote is read, it either trivially false or a bit of a pointless statement. If it is read as all Muslims are against it then it's trivially false because there are Muslims celebrating it, if going for the "there is at least one Muslim totally against it" then it's pointless because in the over 1bn Muslims there almost certainly will be one, a good point to start looking would probably be the US military

    No Muslim in my family or community ever condones these acts, we are all fighting against extremism!

    You don't have to say all before it, it should come as common sense. If I said "Americans are against it" would it be a pointless statement because there'd be some American citizen somewhere who isn't against it.

    Exactly. Run hide tell and don't look back in anger.

    No big deal.

    The suspect is called Sayfullo Saipov.

    "Sayfullo" is a Central Asian rendering of "Saifallah" - or "Sword of Allah".

    Hmm, what a fascinating name.

    Unbelievable that nowadays you can guess the religion of the terrorist with 99% accuracy as soon as news of a terrorist attack comes out...

    The US needs to have a good long look at themselves and their morals.

    In the context in which that point was made i.e big cities will always be key targets because they get the most publicity, then yes.

    You added the don't worry which is a wholly disingenuous distortion of what was actually said.

    There's only one way to curb ( not prevent altogether ) this type of situation and that is to ban all form of religion and gatherings across the Western Hemisphere .

    We are after all, the only animals that kill one another for religious reasons .

    Time to call on this religious nonesense that was written hundreds if not thousands of year ago at a time when the world was flat not round and donkeys were more popular than BMW .

    Not one animal in the history of time has died as a result of religious indoctrination or hatred .

    The only animals that blindly follow are ourselves .

    The end .

    There is too much death in the United States. By whatever means, the only benefit it has is a small improvement in global population control and it's good for the funeral industry. Bar that, I see no benefits. Their culture is becoming more and more normalised to incidents of unexpected deaths, and I fear the consequences of that as a cultural atmosphere.

    Everything is done in the name of ISIS these days, unless ISIS directly helped him with the attack this means nothing
