    This is a very degraded way of presenting this sad occurrence caused by Terrorists.

    You should remove the post.

    If you think crawling in a corner and hiding from the world is appropriate, go ahead. The rest of us, including tons of Muslims, will be outside enjoying things and not letting ******** control our lives with fear.

    He implied there will be non-Muslims out who will kill (presumably given the language of the OP) all Muslims. It's more of an insult to Muslims for suggesting they let fear dictate their lives.
    That sort of hopelessness and "us vs the world" thinking is known for breeding extremism, especially when all the evidence points to the contrary. There are haters, of course, and violent ones at that, but I'm willing to guess the chances of a Muslim being murdered in a hate crime is probably far less than dying from other groups, such as a random active shooter who is not acting on a hate crime or the police.
    Ultimately, hiding will only worsen the problems Muslims face. And no group has ever gained recognition or anything towards equal treatment for hiding away out of fear. Black people, women, LGBT, it took beatings, murders, arrests, riots, and many long struggles just to get the ball rolling (we can extend this to so many countries and groups where people have struggled for basic rights and dignity). If black people cowered and hid when the Klan was born, we would not have had a Civil Rights Act.

    The muslims who was attacked today had not done anything wrong, they was muslims who go to mosque to pray.
    It was a the mind of the attackers who do not see the truth. Attackers who dont understand that everytime the terror happen in the of name Islam is not true muslims who do. Those people we call Terrorists and we see they come from muslim countries, do not even understand the quran, they do not worship the muslim God, they do not follow the law.
    Same can be said about the terrorists of today, they do not follow the truth, they attacked on false clames.

    It's certainly tragic.

    From what I understand they made some arrests already and hopefully can put an end to this latest round of extremism against people that don't deserve to be on the receiving end of this type of insanity.

    There is no difference between us non-Muslims and Muslims. The difference is between peaceful people and terrorists. For every peaceful person, there is someone who wants to kill us. It doesn't matter who we are or our religion.

    A distorted, biased message, which brings with it a certain amount of personal responsibility that one ought not to disregard.

    For all their sincerity, most Muslims really should consider the position that they are in, and the true nature and consequences of their expectations regarding others.

    That said, I think that exposure to these mindsets is actually necessary, as a warning and a sobering call if nothing else. We all need to be aware of the dangers in order to develop the necessary defences.

    The OP can be written about Jews, Christians, Hindus.... alike.

    Though I guess this is a good time to promote some propaganda as if this sad event has never happened before for other religious groups.

    Not only that, but there have been many instances of people of the same faith killing their own brothers of the same faith. Bad things happen when you think you're right, and others are wrong.

    Edited ... The Iran - Iraq war cost a million lives. The American Civil war was Christian versus Christian, and there are many other examples.

    Apparently this was the work of a 28 year old who wanted to send the message that nowhere in the world was safe. white-nationalist: Far-right ideology detailed in Christchurch shooting 'manifesto'

    I was not aware there was a separate line for Muslims in airports, however the last time I used an airplane was in 1988. Was he serious about that or using hyperbole?

    Lots of fears and dangers appeared in my country in the 1980s. We were already having problems people putting bombs onto planes. Around that time also the pills on shelves had to be made with those new protective seals, because some idiots had been putting poison into Tylenol bottles, dipping them into liquid Drano. Everybody was briefly afraid to buy medicine in the stores, and so the bottles after that had those metallic seals added. It was also around this time that people became afraid to allow children to walk in the streets on Halloween night. Someone had put a razorblade into an apple, and a child had been harmed. The news began to report on incidents that happened to children on Halloween, so after that children were escorted. People started having parties with free candy instead of just letting the kids go by themselves door to door.

    There's always somebody born who doesn't have any sense about this kind of thing. They'll poison, bomb etc. We still have to go on living.

    A war means soldiers fighting soldiers, but killing peaceful people that don't possess even a knife is
    really disgusting, that isn't a champion act, it can be described as animalic behavior
    since such kind of person don't have any mercy in his heart.
