There are some very strange things in regards to this attack last night. The two shooters wore ski masks when they shot up the place and went to great lengths to conceal their identities although they supposedly shouted "Alah Akbar" as they carried out the attack. One of the suspected shooters quickly turned himself in and expressed "regret" for his actions which seems really odd.

It's been speculated that this may either be retaliation if some in the Mosque were working with law enforcement or that it may be a Sunni vs Shia conflict starting to spill into Western countries. At least for now, it doesn't appear to be a predictable "Anti-Muslim" Nationalistic style hate crime.

Turns out the shooter is a young white male, far right Canadian Nationalist. The confusion originated because the person that called police and was first detained was a Moroccan Muslim who was in the mosque.

So, if you do the right thing, but are Moroccon, you might get detained. That's kinda disturbing

Quebec is a weird place. It's always been split about 50-50 sovereigntists / Canadian-loyalists. But this is deceptive -- Montreal is the largest city and also the most Anglophile/Anglophone. Outside of Montreal, it's almost entirely separatist, or, if not separatist, still very Quebecois-centric. People in small towns in Quebec don't see people from other countries, let alone other religions. They see everything outside of their traditions as a threat to their existence, to the point of engaging in terrorism (back in the 70s, anyway). So it's not surprising that young male Quebeckers would buy into this shit. It is surprising that one would manage to go and shoot up a mosque, because of the way our gun laws work... but there it is.

Someone (possibly from the religion of peace) has driven at high speed along Westminster Bridge. 1 women dead, many injured. 1 attacker dead.

Great to see fans German and French fans accomodating each other after last nights postponed game.

Incidents like last nights bombing seem to be happening more and more frequently in Europe :sad:

:nyrexall:
just awful. I can imagine a lot of young kids there. Now traumatized.

These days I cannot even think of going to a movie or a concert without at least one thought about something terrible happening.
Always looking for exits the minute I walk in. Right when one starts to relax about it a little- it happens again somewhere.
Even at work I worry about disgruntled employees or customers, and what my escape plan would be.
Hating all the BAD SHIT in the world.
:no:

I was thinking about this too. Not just children and adults who have witnessed things first hand, but everyone else who witnessed the mass panic, noise and first responders.

I guess some will outgrow the fear, and some will be scarred for life. Intelligence are saying that another attack is imminent so our terror level is now at critical and we are now in the process of possibly having military on the streets in key places. What is a 'key' place? And again there are ideas being thrown around (not by right wing fascists either) of deporting the known 3,000 who are on the suspected watch list with one of the main arguments I heard on the radio this morning being "I would rather include a few innocent suspects being deported than have to pick up dead children off the floor"

I'm going to see GnR at the London stadium in a few weeks which I'm not overly concerned about but it's still in the back of my mind. Ricky Gervais wrote "Remember, a fundamentalist terrorist is just someone who takes the crazy, evil, mental shit in their guide book seriously." Again, another topic, but an extremely important one.

Getting tired of all of this now. Tired of the over zealous news coverage, tired of the hate, tired of the pray slogans. We'll be having music concerts every month at this rate....

Depressing.

CNN reporter and crew filmed staging a made up story about an Islamic "Peace Group" the day after the attack. Apparently, the CNN crew gathered up a number of Islamic looking people, gave them anti-ISIS/Terrorism signs and trucked them to several parts of London and staged these pretend "rallies" after the latest attack Friday.
