They've had armed gang violence in Holland in the past.

Fingers crossed. 🤞

Given the timing I highly expect it to be terrorism.

Praying that God guides and provides comfort to the family of the victim as they grieve this loss.

What good are your thoughts and prayers?

Edit:

I mean do you ever stop and think at how stupid that idea sounds, your God stood by and let 49 of his own followers die in a shooting, there were men, woman and children there, children who just wanted to live their lives without a gunman breaking in and blowing their heads off.

He didn't do anything, He knew it was going to happen and let it happen anyway.

Do you not realise how many people are killed on a daily basis, do you not realise how many die in extreme agony everyday whilst God sits on a cloud hating homosexuals and pork?

And you have the gall to say that God is going to provide comfort to those families? Like he's sympathetic towards them? Do you not see how illogical that sounds?

If you gave it just a minute of thought you'd realise how incredibly stupid your idea is.

You may believe they don’t work, I do and there’s no point debating this further.

You’re right, I don’t want to debate this further, I don’t want to further derail this thread, but I do want you to know that someone’s thoughts cannot travel to someone else’s to make them feel better, that.is.all.

Message to the terrorist who was probably seeking revenge for the NZ massacre:

Oh ffs, a Turkish-born suspect? Don’t tell me this is in revenge for NZ.
What else do you expect it to be?

Today was the day of the police strike in the city. It sounds like it might have been planned for a while.

Apparently, there were comments on Twitter that there would be revenge and people would feel the heat.

I guess the white supremacist in New Zealand got what he wanted with evoking tensions among communities.

I'd like to see the media and politics get worked up about this one, but obviously the most we'd get is a statement from the token Tory Muslim Sajid Javid.
