  1. This continues and will continue until Europe realizes deeply that Islamic terrorists have been implanted among their populations, and many Muslims in Europe openly confess, as in Belgium, that they were aware of men being hunted as terrorists were living very near them, and said nothing to authorities.

    Meanwhile, Ms. Merkel of Germany in a very recent speech is not backing down at all, proclaiming that as humane human beings, we ‘out it to them’, to allow in god knows how many. Merkel herself said in a speech in 2010 that multiculturalism is a fraud, a sham, a failure … footage of this from YouTube.

    It is more like she has failed and has an incapacity to address her own failure to see things clearly, apparently she has no regret over her decision and the taking of lives in the past year, from those of so called ‘immigrant’ background. Even one man who was supposed to have been deported was not, seemingly because it would be ‘cruel’ to send him back to Syria. Lately, much larger influxes are coming from Africa … anyone there have any conception of birth control? Is Europe supposed to be overrun in the coming decades, descending into chaos as exists in practically every other place in the Islamic world … except those countries ruled with an iron fist.

  2. Yeah, and we have killed half a million innocent women and children in the Middle East in our illegal and undeclared wars in the past 15 years. We are MUCH better at murder than they are

    • Hardly. If the Muslims don’t spend their entire life and breath killing other people and spreading their ideology, there would be no Saudi alliance demading a US presence in the Middle East. Even US killings are founded on Saudi endorsements.

      • oh please.. US kills and interferes because of $$$ it doesnt give a damn about who is its friend… It has constantly meddled in Middle East, including ILLEGAL invasion of Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria… helping ISIS, ISrael…

        Maybe when you stop interfering, people will stop doing revenge attacks.. you mind your own business and you let them mind their own business. But $$ talks.. selfish interests of USA will not stop it interfering..

        Have you ever thought why USA doesnt invade Zimbabwe? Somalia? who all have dictators, same as Osama or Bashar or Mubarak or saddam….

        because there is no oil.. no reason.. USA doesnt give a rats ass if the people of these countries suffer.. but when it comes to iraq, syria where there is wealth, USA suddenly cares about the people.. and you guys are TOO stupid to think..

      • It is more heart-breaking, because the wars are constantly aggravated and started by Muslims. No one feels pity for the one who provokes and creates the problems. Only pity is that civilians get stuck in the middle of the conflicts.

  3. Has anyone noticed but me that the police are always there “After the fact”? They cannot protect you!
    Why, in the pic, are the police standing guard outside the church..?… the attack is over- police will do no good now!
    You had better arm the citizens!
    This is what happens when you fall prey to the old “WE need you to give up your guns for your safety” scam!

  4. oh how terrible 443 people were killed in Europe.. obviously when it happens at your own door step it strikes something in your heart. but when the Europe does it in far places mostly in Middle East, no one gives a damn.. Hypocrisy? why yes.. because we all know that when terrorist attack French or Belgian, every one puts a flag on their fb. Yet when these very terrorists attack Turkey or another non-english country, no one gives a damn.

    443 people may have been killed in Europe, but far more have been killed by America, British in Iraq, Syria, Libya.. all happened because of selfish interference from the west. If you didnt want them coming to your countries, then you shouldnt have BOMBED their countries under false pretence

    Think for your self and see how big or small Syria really is and despite yearly battle with ISIS America, who we consider the worlds superior power hasnt managed to defeat them.. Why? because they dont want to.. why? because its in Israel’s best interest.

    so you kill 10x people in Syria, Libya etc and dont care.. SHAME ON YOU.. SHAME ON YOUR HYPOCRITICAL NATURE and Islamophobia…
