    I imagine the pro gun people are working out how to say "see? Australian and New Zealand gun laws don't stop mass shootings", racist types will be trying to distance themselves from the shooters and/or trying to blame victims (we have a member of parliament who's already released a doozy of a victim blaming statement), anti gun types will be trying to pretend this extreme outlier example is somehow representative, and so on.

    Ah, ok, gotcha. You are speaking from the local
    scene, not the forum here.

    It is certainly what Americans do, spin every event
    to their pov.

    It's just a shame that this thread that was offered up as a consideration for the innocents killed in Christchurch became almost instantly politicized.

    To me, this day and this weekend should be sorrowful days as we sympathize with the Muslim community and also the other people of New Zealand.

    This is a thread about the mass murders and injuries upon peaceful Muslims in ChristChurch, NZ and requesting that we stand together for the victims and their loved ones.

    You seem to have ignored that ............

    Islamphobia is sick, bigoted and idiotic, and rares its ugly head again in what was supposed to be a tribute to innocent victims of islamophobic hatred, instead we have examples of the type of hatred that propelled the perpetrator, disgusting.

    What I merely trying to say - that attacking Muslims and killing a few of them who I shall presume were peaceful people going about their worship - provides fuel for the radicals to recruit more people and resources to their cause

    The vast majority of the 9/11 terrorists were from Saudi Arabia who also sponsored Osama bin Laden in his early days - but the political interests in the West choose to overlook that given the $$ and oil that comes from Saudi Arabia

    This is lovely! ♥ Our temple is holding a vigil and prayers tonight, the mosques here are on lock down for now, so our Islamic community will be joining us at temple for prayers and donations. Hopefully whatever terrible creatures that caused this destruction and pain will be caught and punished. It's sad that "people" can be so hurtful and cruel to anyone they deem different. To attack a place of worship, or any place you should feel safe is just so disgusting to me. I love that there's a greater number of love and support than hate and it's definitely showing all over the world right now. :)

    Because China like N Korea is a tyrannical, intolerant xenophobic regime.

    The OP also singled out atheists as a group whose
    compassion is in question.


    I responded to a scurrilous attack on my country.

    YOU seem to have ignored all the other
    posts unrelated to the thread title, such as by the
    Revolting one on bicycle accident.

    Some reason to single me out?

    Or to ignore the my posts that are OT?

    Or not to "notice" that no thread ever fails
    to go off in divers directions?

    I am sure you feel the comparison is apt,so why
    dont go ahead and list all the countries that are
    "like N Korea" that way?
    Start in S Africa and work north, east,and west.
