Those numbers still become very skewed towards islamic extremism when you include 9/11. It's unbelievable how big of an impact 9/11 had on terrorism.

The Prophet (saw) said: He who does not thank the people is not thankful to Allah.

Trump: 'Wacko' who opened fire at Pittsburgh synagogue should get death penalty
Source: The Hill
BY CHRIS MILLS RODRIGO - 10/27/18 12:54 PM EDT

 

President Trump condemned the gunman who opened fire in a Pittsburgh synagogue on Saturday, killing eight people, saying that the shooter "should pay the ultimate price."

Trump spoke to reporters at Joint Base Andrews before departing for a rally in Illinois, lamenting the "terrible, terrible things going on with hate."

Asked about what could be done to curb such violence, Trump suggested bringing the death penalty "into vogue."

"We should stiffen up our laws in terms of the death penalty," he said. "When people do this they should get the death penalty …they should very much bring the death penalty into vogue.

Trump: If Synagogue Had Armed Guards, ‘Results Would Have Been Far Better’

By David Taintor

October 27, 2018 12:48 pm

Speaking shortly after a deadly shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue, President Trump on Saturday said that if the house of worship had armed guards, “the results would have been far better.”

 


Asked whether gun laws should be tightened in the wake of the shooting, Trump said: “If they had protection inside the results would have been far better. This is a dispute that will always exist I suspect. But if they had some kind of a protection inside the temple maybe it could have been a very much different situation. They didn’t, and he was able to do things that unfortunately he shouldn’t have been able to do.”

At least eight people were killed in the shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, according to reports. Three officers were shot and a suspect is in custody.

Trump said he would speak about the shooting further at an event later Saturday.

New suspicious package addressed to CNN discovered at Atlanta mail facility
Source: NBC News

 

Another suspicious package was sent to CNN and intercepted at an off-site mailing facility in Atlanta, the network said on Monday.

CNN chief Jeff Zucker sent the announcement to staff and sought to quell any fears felt by network employees at the Atlanta headquarters or bureaus.

"This morning another suspicious package addressed to CNN was intercepted at an Atlanta post office," he said in a statement.

"There is no imminent danger to the CNN Center. All man, at all CNN domestic bureaus is being screened at off-site facilities as of last Wednesday, so this package would NOT have come directly to the CNN Center even if hadn't been intercepted first. Our screening process is working and we will keep you updated as we learn more," Zucker said in the statement.

Shots Fired into GOP Campaign Office in Florida

 

At least four shots were fired into a Republican campaign satellite office in Volusia County, Fla. on Sunday, police announced after a campaign volunteer reported the shooting Monday morning.

No one was injured in the shooting, which broke the front windows and displaced drywall inside the office, South Daytona police captain Mark Cheatham told the Orlando Sentinel. There were no eyewitnesses, but police are seeking surveillance footage to try and determine who is responsible.

Is it possible the left is staging these events, ON THEMSELVES, in order to look like the victims, and to provide an excuse for censorship? Even if it is 'white right wing extremists' or whatever, why is the media not making any big deal about the attacks that have occurred to the right, and on white Christians in particular? They only seem to widely cover the news that fits their agenda.

Careful there. You can use some logic. Don't fall "victim" to the same mindset that got whipped into a frenzy by Trump.


What are you without the sum of your parts?

Well, does anyone remember this: 

https://www.tennesse...rney/439374002/

 

Yeah, that was a mass shooting in Tennessee last year in a place of worship. The shooter, Emanual Samson, a refugee from the Sudan, stated that he hated Christians and white people. Tennessee happens to also be overwhelmingly Republican. 

 

Oh, and if you look at the picture in the article, you'd assume that the victims were black, as those are the ones who are shown crying, however, if you go here: https://www.tennesse...-say/700159001/, you can see that the Church is predominantly white and the victims were indeed white. 

 

 

This story was briefly covered by the media, mostly locally, and has since been largely forgotten. 

 

 

But where are the cries that we shouldn't criticize Trump, also a white Republican Christian, because it may lead to more such incidents?

That event was a horrible crime, but iirc the shooter was an ex member of the congregation? Also I don't want to sound callous, but only one person was killed, so of course it wasn't covered as heavily as more extreme massacres that seem to happen in the USA every month or two.

 

Also the guy was taken down by members of the congregation right? But without using their own firearms so it wouldn't have fitted the rhetoric of either the pro gun folks or the anti gun folks really, so no money from that pushing the story to the front page might have been a thing.

 

It was more of an attempted mass shooting that failed pretty badly than a mass shooting.

 

Also a quick google shows that it was still reported on thousands of times.

Arsonist sets fires at 7 Brooklyn synagogues and Jewish schools: NYC councilman
NOOR AL-SIBAI 02 NOV 2018 AT 18:31 ET
 

The New York Police Department received reports of fires at seven Hasidic Jewish institutions in a single neighborhood in Brooklyn — around the same time vandals spray-painted “Kill All Jews” inside a reform synagogue in the same borough.

City Council Member Stephen Levin and State Senator Martin Dilan released a statement about the fires Friday afternoon.

 


As NYC Councilman Chaim Deutsch noted on Twitter, there have been multiple anti-Semitic incidents in the week since the Pittsburgh synagogue massacre.

The incidents include swastikas found graffitied in Brooklyn Heights and Manhattan’s Upper West Side, the vandalism inside Brooklyn Height’s Union Temple, an anti-Semitic license plate that was removed in Queens and a Jewish man being verbally threatened in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood.

Active shooter and multiple victims reported at Thousand Oaks bar
Source: Los Angeles TimesBy JAMES QUEALLY , RICHARD WINTON , ALENE TCHEKMEDYIAN and SEAN GREENE
NOV 08, 2018 12:15 AM

 

Police were responding to reports of a mass shooting that left several people injured and may have led to casualties Wednesday night inside a Thousand Oaks bar.
Emergency crews were responding to an "active shooter" inside the Borderline Bar & Grill, according to a tweet from the Ventura County Fire Department.

One law enforcement official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, told The Times that at least 30 shots had been fired and that there are casualties.

According to witnesses at the scene, someone ran into the bar around 11:30 p.m. and started firing what appeared to be a black pistol.
"He shot a lot, at least 30 times. I could still hear gunshots after everyone left," said the person, who did not give a name.

Time for some Thoughts and Prayers™, I guess.

 

Followed by the usual screaming calls for more gun control.

 

Followed by the usual outraged response – "This is not the time for political debate," etc.

 

Then gradually, everyone forgets about the massacre.

 

Rinse and repeat. Month after month. Year after year. 

 

Until some time in the 23rd century, when humans are basically immortal and crime has been eliminated.

Are you critiquing the Anti-Defamation League because it's genuinely hard to believe that right wing extremism is more common at this point in history? Or, are you critiquing them because the league is a Jewish organization because you're a fascist that's being really subtle about how anti-Semitic you are?

Also I think this is relevant given the thread and recent anti-semetic nonsense in my country. There has been a large escalation in the amount of nazi graffiti in Pittsburgh since the shooting. It's gotten so bad that the local news did a report on it last night. Which, is the only reason I'm bringing it up because I'm more exposed to spotting this stuff than most people given I work at a collective bookstore and it's normal for our store to get vandalized. The vast majority of people in this city are good people. My feeling is that the attack just brought more fascists out of the woodwork who wern't previously active, but always sitting there brooding over themselves.  The shooting probably galvanized the consistently active fash too.
