How brave these Islamic warriors were to attack and kill two unarmed and innocent women. They're a real credit to their religion.

@Franz Yes. Adonis explained

@Franz Yes. Adonis explained that in the OP.

@Adonis I've done a little bit of research on the topic of the US funding terrorism, in the past. I haven't found much I can verify, however I do see some things as likely. The US has a vested economical interest in Arabic countries. So, it makes sense for them to fund people and causes they think will benefit them the most.

Also, the US is very good at propaganda, propaganda aimed at it's own citizens. The US government can get away with quite a few atrocious actions because of this and their restriction of access to info.

Again, This is all conjecture. I, as a US citizen, may have a better view of our government, but I still have to slog through propaganda, misinformation, and intentional deceit.

Whenever there is an attack

Whenever there is an attack like this (and yes there have been thousands over the past decade or so globally) the governments of US and EU particularly will twist themselves in knots to avoid referencing Islam. Often the offenders are called mentally ill (by the same people who assure us that mental illness does not contribute to crime) or 'under the influence of drugs. This includes instances (like the nightclub killings in Florida) where the attacker repeatedly insisted he was doing this in service to Allah. (by contrast an anti Semitic crime by someone not Muslim is immediately billed as right-wing-Nazi extremist)

Hopefully now that the cash stream that Iran was getting after the 'nuclear agreement' is drying up, there will be less cash flowing to Hezbolah

It's become taboo to criticize religions, especially Islam. People even play the racism card as if Islam was an ethnic group rather than just another mind-destroying death cult.

These Moroccan morons wouldn't have killed these innocent young women without the distorted inspiration of Islam. Like every religion, Islam is a dangerous tool used by evil men to turn idiots and children into expendable weapons.

Algebe: "It's become taboo to criticize religions, especially Islam."
This is what I find so objectionable in America. The whole "Islamophobia" crap. "Islam is the mother load of bad ideas." (Sam Harris) and I could not agree more. It took us 2000 years to drag Christianity, kicking and screaming, to where we have it today, and it is ready to slip back into the dark ages at the drop of a nail. Now we have fucking Islam to deal with as well. FUCK!

@Algebe And that, my friend,

@Algebe And that, my friend, is exactly the reason why we challenge that taboo and try to desensitize believers to criticism of their sacred cows. They may not like it, but freedom of expression is a human right; freedom from offense, however, is not.

Furthermore, if you feel the constant need to use Inquisition-like threats of violence and death to quash all dissenters, then what does that say about how secure you are in your beliefs?

I was reading a summary of

I was reading a summary of this pointing out that most media and official descriptions of this event refer to them as "lone wolves" (even though with about 19 involved, they hardly were lone.

The reason, though, is that the 'lone wolf' terminology allows the media (and officials) to avoid connecting it with Islam, there just 'misinformed individuals'

It's propaganda. Simple

The Swedish press (under

The Swedish press (under orders from the government) has classified this as a 'knife incident'. Nothing at ALL to do with Islam. That's how they've 'reduced' terrorist violence in Sweden, press and even private citizens are not allowed to make the religious connection. Volence in or around 'refugee' shelters is described in terms of ordinary street crime. People can get 4 years in prison for explicitly calling out Islamic terrorism on media posts.

It happens here to a lesser extent. You won't get arrested (usually) but you'll be kicked of Facebook and Twitter. In the 1 year anniversary of the nightclub shootings,, where the killer repeatedly claimed he was doing it in the name of Allah, the Washington Post did not mention Islam once. Passed the whole thing off as some 'anti-gay' attack. Other incidents get classified as workplace violence, drug or alcohol influence, mental illness....

"Additional comment "Lies that Kill""

The politicians and opinion leaders are bribed to cover for Islamic terrorism in their jurisdictions. And since they control the goverment they pass laws that make it a crime to link Islam and terrorism. The result is that one day fairly soon people in countries such as Norway and Sweden will wake up one morning and they will be living in a completely Islamic country. Spain was conquered by force and it took about 780 years for them to get rid of the muslims. Today the muslims are conquering countries by bribery.

Its interesting how religion

Its interesting how religion produces so much murder, while it claims to produce eternal life.

I don't understand how you can kill someone for God, when your instructions come from ancient texts and hearsay.

Even if the clouds opened and beams of light fell on me, and a loud thundering voice spoke from the heavens and told me to kill someone, i would not do it. I would call my therapist to move up my appointment.

I guess when you can believe anything without proof, anything goes.

"I don't understand how you can kill someone for God, when your instructions come from ancient texts and hearsay."

The Bible contains a lot of stories where the God character told his henchmen to slaughter people. If you pal around with God then you must be willing to kill without a second thought. It is a basic requirement.
