Awful happenings in Sri Lanka

... as an aside, the police did look very smart with ironed uniforms, landyards and belts. I must say the absence of fleeces, baseball caps high bloody high viz was refreshing (and condolences to all affected).
 
Ask John Simpson about the benefit of wearing a burka to avoid identification: even if it was just a stunt (as some believe) he made a very valid point.
Agreed, at any time, although even more so in a time of hightened terror threat - preventing individuals from hiding their identity can only be a good thing.

Given the UK terror threat level is currently SEVERE - we should implement the same here.

What an appalling waste of life - queuing up for breakfast at the end of their holidays ffs! :x
I imagine everyone of those 250+ poor souls of whatever race or background have a back story of stolen dreams and have left behind numerous grieving relatives and friends trying to make some sense of it all.
There are probably hundreds, perhaps thousands of like-minded nutters mingling amongst us at the moment and literally nowhere is safe, because they are always going to target locations which guarantee maximum carnage.
What a world we have created for ourselves.
 
... and that, unless I'm mistaken, all the attackers on Easter Sunday were male, so all this will do is antagonise the Muslim population and provide another potential cause celebre for those making the narrative of being oppressed and discriminated against.
Not necessarily, only one branch of Islam insists on a full face covering and it is the branch that is already committing the terrorist attacks. Other Muslims aren't likely to get that worked up about it, some Muslim countries already ban them. I know several Tunisian Muslims who want to see the ban reinstated in their country.
 
It's just an appalling loss of lives - no matter where it happens and the manner. I f-ing hate all the extremists, no matter what color or creed. I am sick and tired of it. I am 35, almost 36 and have witnessed and have seen more indirectly and it just makes me weep internally about humanity.

To be honest at 66 I am almost inured to it.
It is still shocking but only because the liberal luvvies running the world refuse to see the problem.

I witnessed 2 x Christian Extremists in action in Oxford on the day before the Easter Sunday attacks - they were dishing out mini-Easter Eggs near the train station.

Some 'extremist's appear to be more dangerous than others - depends on the religion it seems.

Easter Eggs, isn't that cultural appropriation as they're stealing the culture of indigenous pagans and commercialising it

That's fine by me - I'm all for a bit of paganism. More importantly it's a good combat indicator of the danger Christianity religion poses to us in it's 'extreme' form - dishing out Easter Eggs is pretty harmless.

Other religions, one in particular, may have more lethal results when taken to the 'extreme'.

What a horrible thing to do. I doubt if they were unaware of the dangers of childhood obesity, the risk of type-2 diabetes!!
The children are also at risk of dental caries that could doom them to a future of poor nutrition. Those poor children could end up needing denture while still in their teens.
Shamefull!!

I know you’re being ironic, but if it was my grandchildren, I’d rather they were offered the odd Easter egg or two by some random stranger in the street as we can do something about that - politely telling the stranger ‘no thank you’ for starters.
There is absolutely nothing you can do about a stranger strolling up to you and yours in a crowd and detonating a rucksack full of explosives.

The examples you give are the true Muslims, they are following Islam as intended. The other 99% thankfully, are just half-hearted fans of the religion.

It's more than 99%, which is just as well really, because if they all kicked off, we could be on a sticky wicket.

The danger we face now is that Islam is everywhere and all around us and all it takes as has been proven time and time again is one or more Muslims taking their religion more seriously and then they turn on us and attack and the death toll, the casualties, the heartache and suffering all happens as intended in the name of their religion.

I know you've served, but this hysterical bleating really makes you look like a terrified Tommy Robinson. Let's not inflate things more than we need to, eh?

All of the above is facilitated and somehow deemed beyond being challenged by Lefty’s who berate those of us who can see Islam for what it is, and who provide it a cloak in the form of a race card that they pull on anyone who questions the atrocities committed by Muslims in the name of their religion.

Lefties and the will to not offend people who should be offended is a major issue. See Rotherham for details.

You only have to look at this attack in Sri Lanka - where an Imam (the equivalent of a priest) is preparing and blessing fellow Muslims before they go on their mission to slaughter Christians in the name of Islam. I mean there is no religion like it on Earth that conducts slaughter against others in such a manner:


A tiny percentage, as you yourself, have said. Most Muslims prefer to sit down on a Friday night with a cup of tea and watch Gogglebox.

My comments in blue.

I'll set my stall out here for you, in case it's hard to follow.

I don't agree with any religions, full stop. As far as I'm concerned, they're all a lump in an awkward place. Most are reasonably benign, but some are malignant and spreading. I'm all for cutting out the cancerous bits, but to be clear: You don't need to amputate your leg because you have an infected little toenail. Attacking 99% of a religion because of the actions of 1% of them is foolish and plays into the radicals' hands, as has been pointed out to you at least a dozen times.

No, to be clear, I put extremist Muslims on the same level or below as the "do-gooder" lefties or politically-correct prats who turn a blind eye to the wrongdoings of the same. This wish to "not offend" people is ridiculous and misjudged on so many levels.

Treat everyone the same, whether they're black, white, muslim, christian or alien. You break the law and you get no special cultural treatment. Go straight to the grey-bar hotel, do not pass go.

I bet they weren't even Vegan mini eggs either
