The police shot him very quickly. The intent was there to kill a lot more people.
It's an armed terrorist with known IS sympathies and intentionally killing police in a Western capital city. You expect it not to be headline news?

The media is locked into this narrative of their being a "war" with IS. There isn't, of course, but that is the line they have chosen to take. It's easy for them to fill space and airtime with something sensational that will get page views and eyeballs on it. It's a lot simpler to understand than, for instance, the 30 tory candidates under investigation for election fraud and the fact that the snap election imposes a time limit on a case being brought against them.

Hank:"FFS two people have been shot ". In fact, one person has been murdered, one has been shot dead and two shot and seriously injured.

Still, with "insignificant events" like these, who's counting a couple of extra victims, eh?

How do you know that this person was a "nutter"?

I wouldn't be surprised if there was a shooting incident in the US yesterday where more than two people died and it barely even made the local news.

Initially when I read about a guy targeting police my first reaction was it could well just be a general nutter with a grudge against the police.

They're only reported here if they are major spree killings or the dumb stuff like mothers being shot whilst driving by their toddlers.

Apparently ISIL have now named their martyr as Abu Yousif. Sensibly the French have tried to keep the identity confidential whilst chasing other suspects but perhaps ISIL didn't want any more of their potential martyrs to be lost in the field as it were so let his identity slip.

Unsurprisingly he's well known to the authorities and is most certainly a bad hombre that I'm sure the French and Belgians and everyone else were highly wary of. He's had a couple of significant run ins with the cops - recently when he was shopped only to be released for lack of evidence and longer ago when he went nuts shooting cops and served some jail time as a result. At least I'm just passing on what I'm reading about this terrorist.

These are are almost exclusively carried out by known criminals who have never had any actual contact with anyone in ISIS but simply see them on telly and want to copy them. Of course ISIS claims that they they are responsible for the attack. Can anyone imagine scenario in which a muslim person commits a crime and ISIS doesn't claim responsibility?

Hero I'm not ignoring it I'm just saying that it's not particularly different to many of the other random crimes that go on in this world and affect random passers by. You're really quite naive if you think that every remotely significant crime is reported as that would mean papers just full of stabbings and shootings. Hundreds of people in the US are killed by serial killers every year but we only ever hear about the major ones who are caught.

It makes bugger-all difference whether IS had any role in it at all.

A terrorist with the same ideological motivation remains a terrorist. His victims remain dead. Or in agony. Or terrified.

IS remains an organisation that slaughters and murders on a massive scale.

The only difference between the shooting in Paris and the daily shootings in the US are that people like you and A hero of our time aggrandise the former to push a bigoted political agenda.

You only care about the innocents when there is some kind of link to Islam, You could not care less about shooting victims where the shooter is a white Christian male.

Non-muslim shooters are always "mentally ill" or "lone wolf" individuals, but when the shooter is a muslim, why then by gum its a massive terrorist plot and we all have to be terrified.

QED

You don't care about the shooting of anyone else when the shooter isn't muslim. You only care about the loss of an innocent life when the act is committed by a muslim.

Much like Jaime Lannister only cares about rape/sexual assault when it is a muslim doing the raping.



And the big joke is on you. You are doing exactly what they want you to do. How can you not see this? How can you not see that the whole point of these acts is to sow discord. How can you not see that by inflating the importance of one act of violence you are essentially acting as a force multiplier?

If you really truly cared about reducing terrorism then you would stop doing exactly what they want you to do. This is so painfully obvious to anyone with even the most basic intellect that is simply blows my mind that you don't get it.

"Hank remains of the view that these are "insignificant events" and that they're only about individuals' mental health. ."

The implication is that you believe that they are indeed significant events. White christian males kill thousands every year in America, far more than muslim terrorists have killed in Europe. You have chosen to imply that the recent events in Paris are significant yet you have not done similar for all of the killings in the US.

The only logical conclusion is that you don't view them as significant. I do not recall you expressing concern when Dylan Roof shot nine people in a South Carolina church. Nor do I recall any outrage when Jo Cox was murdered.

No, the only time you see fit to claim a murder is significant is when it is perpetrated by a muslim.

If this is simply an oversight on your part, perhaps you were too busy feeding your cats to post about it, then I apologise. I look forward to your condemnation of the daily gun violence in the US.

McSneerin, I see. Let me see if I can help you a little. If Hank calls multiple murders "insignificant events", and I challenge that, it DOES NOT imply anything whatsoever about how I regard other acts of murder. Hopey-helpey with your "logical conclusion". And to help even more, why would I talk about other deaths in response to Hank calling specific events "insignificant? Again, hopey-helpey with your "logical conclusion".

Unfortunately, however, nothing you said explains how you know what I think about the victims of "white Christian males". I loom forward to you actually answering the question I asked.

And just to help you a little bit more, I am sure it was very remiss of me not to have commented on Mr Roof. I guess the fact that I have never heard of him might have had something to do with it.

And to help even more, I DID actually comment about Jo Cox, but don't let facts get in your way.

I only said my initial reaction was that it might be someone with a grudge against the police because he'd walked up to a police van and shot the police in it rather than rampaging shooting at a random.

I just don't really consider these proper terrorist attacks although their aim is to try and spread terror. Some guy who's inspired by a group and loosely affiliated to them going off on a half cocked lone mission with little planning is very different to an organised group with a clear hierarchy waging a sustained campaign. To be honest I'm just as likely to be stabbed by some guy with mental health problems on my way to lunch as be involved in IS inspired terrorism.

Certainly the police response to these attacks is very different to a traditional terrorist attack as it's almost impossible to arrest anyone further up the chain of command as there isn't really a chain of a command.

Bin Laden's whole reason for 9/11 was to bring the US into Afghanistan to bleed them to death the same way that they did to the Soviets.

ISIS have repeated talked about the apocalyptic battle of east and west to take place on the plains of Dabiq in Syria.

Terrorism has always been about trying to get the West to overreact and go to war against them in the Middle east.

Well hero many of them were part of the non-muslim underclass but converted because of all of the attention that Islam is getting and because Islamists have worked out it's far easier to recruit people to the cause from disaffected parts of society than to convert the middle classes. To some extent these are the same people who in the US have been drawn to groups like the Branch Davidians and local militias and assorted white supremacist groups. There are plenty of our own underlcass who are drawn to other extremist groups but those groups prefer protests that end in a punch up to shooting people so they don't get the same coverage.

There have always been petty criminals and disaffected people who blame society for their failure and they are attracted to whatever fashionable cause reassures them that their failings are the fault of some other group that they should lash out.

But there are examples of similar attacks perpetrated by non-muslims but they tend to be less widely reported for various reasons not least because it doesn't justify maintaining a military presence in other countries.

It is very strange how it is always islam that radicalises.

Any other beliefs with similar lethal consequences? Thought not.

There is a problem with islam.

It's as if we are amongst actors and someone would mention "the scottish play".

The Nice attacker was a poor example of Islamic practice iirc. (Other than for the obv reason) his neighbours said he ate pork and was a boozer.
But i think he still came from a backbround that lends itself to the radical cause. Its not the religion that is the problem, we know this, its the attraction of a death cult. Which is why better to tackle the problems that lead to social isolation etc etc

hero - we gotta be wary of those radical vegans who espouse their fondness for buddhist philosophy, upon returning home from ashram camps in india.

. .potentially lethal if you succumb to inhaling the wind of these radical vegans' chick pea diets!

""Massive wave of terrorism affecting the continent"

Lollercoper circling. Party poppers on standby.

I'm with Supes. It's hardly terror is it.

Funnily enough literally only mcfraudster said "Massive wave of terrorism affecting the continent".

The guy has about as much credibility as buzzfeed. He is fake news.
