Re: The Islamic Terrorist Attack Thread

Could we include terrorist attacks that aren't directly linked to Islam? I know that most today seem to have that common denominator, but some done. It would be interesting to compare and contrast.

Re: The Islamic Terrorist Attack Thread

I wanted to at first because terrorism is terrorism, but I'm trying to break it down a little, and I'm not sure if that would confuse the immediate and overwhelming presence of ISIS-related and influenced attacks worldwide. I thought about doing an ISIS Attack thread, but as we know, even that can be confusing, so at least we can group Radical Islamic Attacks for now, and then see how the thread goes?

For example, an anti-abortion person who kills a few at a clinic, and while it is still important, I'm not sure if it would demonstrate the worldwide issue of those types of people killing others and the politics involved. Still important, no doubt, but I'm not sure about adding non-Islamic terrorists at this point. We can discuss and see how to include all attacks however.

Re: The Islamic Terrorist Attack Thread

Honestly, you're not going to be able to keep up.

When it doesn't involve white Westerners, it doesn't make the news over here, and nobody cares. Here's the real state of affairs:

Yeah, I won't be able to keep up with every single attack that happens, but this is not a comprehensive list and more of the major and discussed attacks in this forum.

Re: The Islamic Terrorist Attack Thread

This what happens to people who have zero opportunities in life and belong to a religion that promises them a place in heaven if they die by killing non-believers.

But was Isis really responsible for the Orlando attack? It became obvious that had far more to do with homophobia than Islamic fanaticism.
The San Bernardino one is debatable, since they were Islamic fanatics, but they weren't affiliated with Isis either, they were just "fans".

Yeah you know.. I heard on the radio a couple of weeks ago after the other attacks that Isis is basically a "loser death cult" which I think is a great description. If you're a loser in life or your sad and have issues or whatever.. come to us and we'll give you a reason to end your pathetic life for a purpose (insert 40 virgins and a mule or whatever here). That's why they don't mind dying doing it.. because they have nothing to live for anyway. So how do you stop that?

Fuck these people. Sometimes I wonder how much mankind has evolved.

Yeah, those are debatable. Unfortunately people can do anything and claim it was because of this or that.

It also seems premature to include today's attack when we don't know much about it yet.

That's true.. but when 9 out of 10 of these types of things are ISIS related in some way it's not unreasonable to draw an early assumption... but yeah I'm sure we'll find out more shortly.

I'm a little surprised he didn't have the truck set to blow up.

Is there an urgent need to update the thread, though? Seems like it could wait for confirmation, especially when we're already discussing it in its own thread.

Re: The Islamic Terrorist Attack Thread

ISIS claiming responsibility for an attack doesn't mean they had anything to do with it. "Follower of/inspired by" would be more accurate in some cases.

Exactly. Militant Islam is better understood as an ideology rather than as some hierarchical army or organized state.

Jesus Christ you sure are right! There's one on there from 11 days ago where over 300 people were killed in a mall in Iraq. That didn't make the news.

There we go with the generalization again.

It's not the whole planet, it's only a tiny fraction of the humans that inhabit it.

Most people are decent. Not very bright, but decent.

Last I heard the killer was gay himself and may have been mistreated by some gay Puerto Ricans. Has that story been modified?

In all attacks listed, I have searched the net for claims of responsibility being reported in an official news article, from ABC, CBS, Fox, CNN, MSNBC, Telegraph, and many other sites. I am NOT just assuming they are ISIS-responsible.

For example, Orlando:

http://www.cbsnews.com/news/mass-sho...esponsibility/

Quote:
ORLANDO -- The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has claimed responsibility for the attack early Sunday morning at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida that left at least 50 dead and 53 injured.

The group's official radio station, al-Bayan, said Monday morning that, "Over 100 Crusaders killed and injured after an attack on their gathering at a night club in America."

"We begin from America, where Allah has enabled brother Omar Mateen, one of the soldiers of the Caliphate in America, to carry out a raid where he was able to infiltrate a Crusaders' gathering at a gay night club in Orlando, Florida. Allah enabled him to inflict heavy casualties amongst the filthy Crusaders. He killed and injured over a hundred of them. This is the biggest raid to be carried in America after the raid of Manhattan 16 years ago. All praise to Allah."
If ISIS claims it, they own it.

Also, Omar Mateen made two trips overseas ("The source tells CBS News that Mateen made two foreign trips, one in 2011 to Dubai and one to Saudi Arabia in 2012."), and who knows what he did there. Seems like Saudi Arabia comes up a lot with attacks. However, ISIS has still claimed responsibility.

The FBI said that they could find no conclusive evidence that the killer was gay or was ever on any gay dating sites or apps.
