    Several Al Quaeda hallmark tactics used. AQ or copycats?

    CNN wont call them terrorists. No matter who they are, would they not be terrorists What else is this?

    Fox says they are anti immigrant. Travelled to NZ but only one from NZ

    I guess NZ's ridiculous guns passed decades again didnt really stop anything. Weird.

    So not some angry white man? I’d think this is anti immigration. I understand NZ has brought in a lot?

    Also heard he was in his 20s.

    I guess he could be another Muslim. My guess is an idiot.

    But right about gun laws.

    BBC interviewed some guy that was in the area and stuck in a building. He was hiding and scared. I’d be pissed and feeling helpless.

    CNN didnt say much. Fox gave specifics. Unfortunately I read the news source for morons first.

    BBC is what I’m listening to but they are not offering anything except interviewing scared men.

      Its right wing extremists I think. I made the mistake of watching the video and its crazy how cold some people are. One guy just goes in there and casually just starts mowing everyone down. Not sure how many others were involved but it looks like that one guy was literally taking the whole mosque out.

      Curious what the gun talk will be there as New Zealand will only issue a permit for things other than self-protection for the most part I hear. So another huge slaughter in a gun free zone.

      I still just view Islam as a political affiliation and not a religion. Certainly not a religion of peace. You reap what you sew. My give a sh i t stopped working for them a long time ago.

        The live stream video is horrific. Reminds me of a video game. I think they have caught the shooter.

        His manifesto says he did it in response to the mass migration of Muslims into Europe.

        “Migration” or “invasion”?

          No invasion, Northern Europe needs labor to do the menial jobs. So they imported them. Same thing that happened in France with Algerians and Moroccans in the late 50s and 60s, Germany and Holland with Italians, Greeks and Turks during the same era.

          While your point is valid a half century ago, it’s not now. This last push wasn’t imported. It was spearheaded from the source, passed through many Islamic countries that could’ve offered sanctuary and targeted the west.

            This is a bit misleading and I've posted about this in past years (not recently). The people you are talking about there were loyal to France and fled the Islamic movement in those countries (especially Algeria) even if many/most were Muslims themselves. More importantly, damn near 100% of them COMPLETELY assimilated to French culture and were doing just fine until this wave from the Arab Spring. It's very similar to what happened with Dearborn. It did not start out with a majority Muslim influx, in fact, it was overwhelmingly non-Muslim/Christian immigrants from mainly Lebanon, then Syria that first came to Dearborn and it was like that for decades and they assimilated as much as the times would allow them. Them more and more Muslims came in.

            PS The Germans took in a ton of Turks decades ago, and while "manageable," the assimilation wasn't so great, a lot of that due to both parties involved.

              No, the European countries could have blockaded all the boats and returned them to the source or back to Turkey. They could have also established safe zones in Syria but they did not.

                The Algerians and Moroccans of the original wave did not assimilate very well. Did you think that the "suburbs" of Paris were founded 8 years ago?
                The Turks did not assimilate well in any European country.
                The educated Algerians that moved over, the doctors, lawyers, engineers did assimilate very well. Same thing with the original educated Cubans. So will the Syrian doctors, lawyers and engineers. The manual laborers will not.
