    Yes getting shot in Church while your praying is beyond words

    You can't call it an act of terrorism because the perpetrators are not Muslim.
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    Unless you are an abortion doctor, then that just comes with the job.

    Ignorance and bigotry are the true enemies of peace.

    The "Victims" are Muslim---Not sure yet on the perps

    They were just named

    Why do you have air quotes around the word victim? Are they not victims of someone?

    Its going to prove embarrassing to Trudeau if he ends up eating his words about Refugees, but I doubt he will. they're probably homegrown. One spoke with a Quebecois accent.

    No they are definitely victims---I just thought there was confusion between you and comic about the perps being muslim

    Police in Quebec are now stating one is a suspect and one is a witness, but aren't saying which is which.

    Looks like they released the Moroccan.

    He looks like the Quebecois version of Dylan Roof. Nice hat.

    You're fluent in French?

    No, I just hit google translate. I can read the occasional Tweet but that's about it.

    So, I'm guessing the neighbors were aware that he tore small mammals apart but nobody wanted to say anything in case they were wrong.
  • sherbsherb Senior Member Posts: 3,722 Senior Member
    If you see something say something. . . unless you don't want to get sued. Then don't say anything.

    This would be the first time in history, including Tim McVeigh that a non-Muslim would be labeled a terrorist.

    Kind blows out of the water the saying....Not all Muslims are terrorists...but all terrorists are Muslim

    Maybe some Brits may have used the "T" word for some IRA incidents

    I once went to a terrorism/threat assessment in the USMC once and it was all shining path/red brigade/PLO stuff. Nobody even mentioned Islamic terror. Things change.

    But Comic just wants to score political points because some redneck here won't call a redneck there a terrorist. So, in the interest of saving time. . .

    I had no idea you were that old.

    And it is not just one redneck here.

    Like to point out that redneck was Sherb's characterization.

    We're fine, I just know Comic well enough to know that he will go on and on about Timothy McVeigh until someone acknowledges that the Frenchy is a terrorist.

    No, it was very peaceable. I drank beer and they cured all of the world's ills. It was a good time.

    They were rebels, not terrorists. Unlike the Irgun, they did not target English women and children

    And I neglected the Japanese Red Army, Tupamarus, Shining Path, IRA etc. What I should have said was that I think the Irgun was the first modern group to be labeled terrorists.

    Wait they got along and the Mormon drank beer? Oh right like this whole story wasn't fake news. You'd probably try to tell us you guys caught fish too. You almost had us. ;)
