Hopefully it wasn't some sort of terrorist attack from refugees, yaoi gods forbid we have anymore of those types of incidents.



"Anymore"? I mean I'm not saying I wouldn't be happy with 0 but how many of said incidents have occurred so far? The only relevant example I could find through Google was the Polish PM claiming that the westminster attack was done by immigrants, which it was not. It was done by a Briton.

Edit: In case it wasn't obvious, the search in question was about incidents in Britain.


By anymore I was referring to Europe in general.

why do all the attacks seem to be concentrated to europe
the US doesn't have this problem on such a large scale
is it a matter of security or just a matter of people being more violent in general?
and no i don't wanna hear "it's all the muslims'/refugees faults" because we have plenty of them in the US and compared to Europe & the UK the number of attacks we've had have been far lesser.

The people who live in the countries in which the IS is active are supposed to to think of non-Muslim countries, countries which fight the IS as evil. The USA isn't that popular there anyway, so you don't have to do much. Europe on the other hand isn't seen as the bad guy in the same way the USA is and as long as they accept refugees (Muslims) from those countries, it's hard for the IS to convince people that they're evil. This is pretty obvious when you look at where the attacks happen (in the powerful, wealthy countries of Europe).
The goal is, to stop Europe from accepting refugees because then the IS can tell them "Look, they won't help you, they even hate you because you're a Muslim.". That's how they can convince people that they should support them.

The attacks in Europe usually aren't organised. The IS targets people who are violent, desperate, feel like the society betrayed them etc. . People who, probably, would've become criminals (or already have a criminal record) anyway. That's way more effective (e.g. it's easier to stop an organised group which plans the attack than a single person with a truck) and also the reason why the IS won't claim to be responsible for the attack unless it's confirmed as an act of Islamic terror because they usually don't know anything about the attacks in Europe (they used to tell people that it was one of their soldiers immediately after something happend but that turned out to be a hit or miss thing so they stopped).

the attacks in europe are due to more open boarders. sorry, but anyone who wants to commit an act of terrorism can carry it out nearly anywhere they want once they get into europe. I doubt it's about having a criminal record or making it look like someone won't help people looking for jobs, or just trying to get away from the Islamic State, it may be that these people are trying to create a culture of fear and violence further west, so that there is less point to leave the middle east, if that's where these attacks are coming from.

and no my prayers aren't with those people, the best we can do for them is actually taking action, and finding out the root cause. "the qu'arn" is just too easy an excuse, we need to find out why these people take a commitment to such violence

But the U.S. does have this problem on the same, or even larger, scale. It's just that most of the attacks in the U.S. are carried out with guns rather than bombs.

Stolen from Facebook;
1. This has nothing to do with Islam.
2. The guy was a mentally ill 'lone wolf'.
3. Those who object to points 1 and 2 are racist bigots.
4. Change Facebook profile to flag of inflicted country.
5. Light some candles, hold a vigil and go on a peace march.
6. Wait for the next slaughter to happen.
7. Repeat.

You're not the only one, since all pop stars are pretty much same.

22 deaths and 59 injured. My thoughts are with them and their families

Shit's fucked man. How long until people revolt?....I can only imagine what it must be like for these people. It must be so tempting to seek revenge.

Bumpedy bump.

Also, you guys do realize the overwhelming majority of these attacks are by people born in the country in question, yes?
