FFS, stop lecturing me on what is racism. I know the difference between racism and xenophobia and all the other "isms".

What on earth are you talking about? I can assure you Malmo is not a "no go zone" for ethnic Swedes. I work with a few people who live in Malmo and I know this not to be true at all. I suggest you don't get your information from Fox News.

The same assertions were made about Birmingham in the UK on Fox News, and it all became a bit of a joke on Twitter. The statements that Birmingham (a city in which I lived for three years) is a no go zone for non-Muslims is 100% false! It's frankly astounding that anybody would say this.

No I didn't. I said there is no evidence that it was refugees, which there wasn't at that stage.

I would love for someone to take all the people like you and stick them right in the middle of this problem, force you to live with it for a few years, and then come back to get your take on the situation. But even I know that all of the apologists like you would still continue to be outwardly "accepting" lest someone else, like you, label them a "racist".
I've grown up within multicultural communities the whole of my 39 years of being alive. Maybe that's why I'm less prejudiced than the rest of the people in this thread. I live about one hour's drive from Cologne, which was the epic-centre of the attacks. I was in Cologne last week in fact picking my girlfriend up from the airport.

You really have no idea of the reality.

I myself am an immigrant in a country which also has lots of different cultures. But I don't stand out because I have white skin. I'm not small-minded to lump all the Muslims in together.
"Maybe that's why I'm less prejudiced than the rest of the people on this thread" - is a prejudiced comment in itself.

And - it's "epicenter" - not "epic-centre"

Confirmed today in the Belgian newspapers ..18 mass rapists were caught via security cams and are refugees !
They said we never saw women without a boerka and this is a sexual shock for us !

Right ?!?!

That's probably the reason why they think we can rape any woman in the middle of the street ?
These people don't belong over here because they don't act like human beings but like wilde animals !!!

I don't know, the assault reports don't sound like anything Ben Roethlisberger or Bill Cosby hadn't done, I'm just saying.

This is the problem. Ghettoization of immigrants leads to this exact problem and for the most part it is entirely self-selecting.

And my take on this type of terrorism is simple: Until all Muslims who are not involved in terrorism stand up and condemn the terrorists, it will never end. This is not racist, it is not anti-religious or anti-immigration. It is a statement that recognizes that they must get their own house in order.

Yes, clearly I know that. It was auto-corrected without me being aware.

And being a touch pedantic, as I'm British then it's "epicentre".

Good grief, it was in response to somebody saying they should "send them back to Saudi Arabia". The majority of refugees have come from Syria, so they wouldn't be going "back" even if they went to Saudi Arabia. It was not a comment on whether or not they should be looked after in Saudi Arabia, which as it happens I agree with. All nations in the World in a position to do so should do their bit to help the refugees.

I'm not arguing that the people guilty of committing these crimes shouldn't be deported or jailed. My issue is the posters who are lumping in over a million other Muslims in with them. That's the offensive part.

Why are ALL Muslims responsible for that? Do ALL Catholics have to speak up about abuse in the Catholic church?

I do. I nearly fell victim to a church "helper" during my youth. I can't stand what these priests are doing to little kids. I can't believe that the hierarchy covered that shit up. I have been to "required" classes to help with the local parish, and admonished those teaching these classes about protecting the innocent that they need to do as they say themselves.

Yes. We do.
I withheld contributions from The Church for years until this was settled. Lot's of my friends did the same.

Just stop, you have no idea what I'm doing with my head or who I'm praying to. I guarantee you that I'm NOT somewhere burying my head praying at this very moment, "mate".

That's a matter of media labeling tbh. It appears we don't classify non-Muslim terrorists as 'terrorists'. But they are. What do you call these guys?

If you're a white armed individual provoking violence in north america, you're mentally unstable, part of a malitia, or some other categorization.

I would consider the PP shooter to be a terrorist, but I don't consider the Oregon group to be. Terrorism has several hallmarks to me: #1. Starts violent, #2. Targeting civilians, #3. Primary objective is to inflict harm (just a couple examples)

The PP shooter definitely fits that description, the Oregon group doesn't. They occupied an empty building (non-violent), they haven't harmed anyone, they've clearly stated their goals. I'm not going to say they are in the right, but I don't consider them to be terrorists.

the main difference is that in most cases the black shooter isnt shooting in the name of blacks, the cop isnt shooting in the name of cops, and the white guy isnt shooting in the name of whites

That's not always true. Remember the Charleston Church Shooting? White guy was definitely shooting in the 'name of whites' (i.e. white supremacist).

Planned parenthood attacks claim that it's against Christianity (so they're really attacking in the name of God).

Fair enough, but even in the cases where it fits the criteria mentioned (i.e. killing in the name of their belief/faction/group), they've never been called terrorists by the media.
