In that basically there is no longer any real "terror" generated by it just a sort of sad and annoyed shrug that some nutters might pop up and stab people or go a bit gun nuts

Islamic terror is really just an embarrassing flop

Apart from your endless whining my life is fairly untroubled. I am in good health. I have some regular lovers of both genders who cater to my physical needs. I own a boat as well as some reasonable property and I employ good people to manage, maintain and farm it. I have some other vehicles which give me great pleasure, convivial friends, a great recipe for banana bread and a butt plug the size of a pineaple.

How about you? What's wrong with you?

Can you be more specific about the pineapple? They vary in size quite a lot.

It has this remote control vibrating function but the motor is so powerful that the one time I finally got the damn thing in, people nearby started checking their phones every time it got swtiched on.

Not a great success but heh - YOLO.

AHOT is doing ISIS's work. Intelligent people recognise that ISIS is not an existential threat to any european country They can't do any significant damage to our infrastructure, our armed forces or our political system. All they can do is kill a couple of people and hope that the resulting outrage makes us do something stupid.

AHOT is a cheerleader for us to do something stupid.
Brrrrap!

Was there ever any terror felt by the majority? I should argue not; it was a term inappropriately coined as a label to which the media could attach.

"Terror" is more appropriate, to my mind, to describe the guerrilla tactics recently being employed by these nutjobs, not the organised paramilitary discipline of that displayed, for example, during the Troubles.

A terror attack occurs, innocent people murdered. And the usual suspects blame anyone who talks about the innocent.

It would be funny if there weren't people's lives at stake.

If you're genuinely concerned about lives lost then start a campaign for safer driving or against gun ownership in the USA. Otherwise feck off back to bigot-town. Thx.

Heh!

You believe in Islam?! I know that we agreed your views were fairly close to an Islamic extremist's, but I didn't realise that you actually believed in the power and will of this "Islam". I had no idea you felt and saw Islam's guiding hand so clearly, as fervently as any devout Muslim.

Please continue.

Your insistence of denying at all costs any connection between these murders and islam is a major factor in the electoral annihilation of the left.

what makes it a terror attack as opposed simply to an attack? "Terror", as currently bandied, is a term soundbittten to lump together relatively disorganised and ill-cohering nutters who simply want to cause damage.

A muslim and an islamic extremist are the same thing.


This is your version of the Heiligenstadt Testament isn't it, only instead of professing your despair it's more an admission of madness. I get it. You're threatened by foreigners. But that doesn't have to impair your ability for rational thought.

When your mum had sex with that muslim 9 months before you were born, it was out of love. You're a love baby. And if the dad who lived with you didn't get that well, he was just sad because you were so great he wishes he was your biological dad too.

You're not arguing. You're making unfounded assertions and ignoring all views to the contrary. You don't ever participate in discussions or arguments. You make unfounded, unprovable statements and repeat them over and over again in the hope of browbeating your opponents to death. There is no point in arguing with you. If you could stop being a such a sanctimonious prick for 5 minutes it would help but there is no hope with you. So why take you seriously?

There will be hundreds or thousands of murders in France this year. Many more will be linked to gangs than to so-called muslim terrorism. There will probably be more people dying in household accidents than in murders. There will be more people dying in car accidents than that.

If you care about loss of life - which you profess to do - there are much more effective things you can do than try to whip up hatred against muslims. Therefore the only possible conclusion is that you DON'T care about loss of life. You care about hating muslims.

I agree with the original post's sentiment. They've cheapened the brand. Like Ferrari letting its logo appear on baseball caps and key rings, or Hilton putting its brand on decrepit motels, ISIS are trashing their brand equity by claiming responsibility for petty bollocks like some pub brawler stealing a minicab and running people over on Westminster bridge.

The logical thing for ISIS to do would be to *deny* responsibility for this shizz. "We don't get out of bed for fewer than 250 casualties".

Which proves my point. You want to give a monologue, not have a dialogue, and all you've got left is to assume an unjustified position of superiority. It's all in your head sun.

Laz makes good sense. If they were to say that is wasn't them but that there message is so powerful other martyrs can't help but hear the call it would be much more powerful.

As it is, they're the penny chews of terrorism and more to be mocked than feared.
