    Just tragic! I can't help wondering if this has to do with the events in France. Who will the shooters turn out to be affiliated with:

    A Greek man who was there, said the attack was near a Synagogue and a Greek Church and the people in the restaurant nearby were locked in by the police. It all has to do with Erdogan. He's a demagogue and deliberately aroused the Muslims over Austria's backing in the EU this past week of Greece, Cyprus and France against Turkey.

    The attackers could be Turkish or any people affiliated with them. At least that's what I think.

    These people are sick.
    Go murder someone you do not know for reasons they do not know.
    With social distancing we can prevent this sickness from spreading.
    Keep 20 meters distance between you and any Mosque.

    How about we wait to find out if they're Muslim first?

    Welcome to the new normal ?


    Stuff like this is pretty common in most Middle Eastern countries. Probably a lot of it doesn't get much attention from the international media.

    If stuff like this is shocking to you, then it shows how kept in the dark people are about the extent of what goes on in other parts of the world:

    Take a look at that map. They had a terrorist attack on almost every street corner.

    And if anyone thinks the insanity is only confined to a few bad apples:
    Asia Bibi in Pakistan

    It is no 'new normal'. Europe has been suffering Islamic terror attacks since the war on Iraq as the UK was told by our Intelligence would happen if we attacked Iraq. This time France set up the bait for the extremists who happily bit. They want exactly the same as the extreme right - all Muslims out of Europe.

    It is looking like that from what they say. Several attacks in different places and there was shooting outside a Synogogue though it is not clear whether that has significance. The Synagogue was shut at the time. Just getting in on the last night before new lockdown

    I reckon there's been more terror "attempts & threats" than Vienna and France, I think it's been ongoing this year. Race and religion are tools... and they are being wielded ruthlessly... that's just my opinion.... from within the cone of silence

    At this stage no one knows who or why. Some reports have wondered if it were a neo-Nazi attack as it began outside a Synagogue. We will find out eventually.

    I did a semester in Vienna. It's a nice place, I miss it, and I'm saddened by the violence. When I was there the cops didn't carry guns. Their income was half of what Americans got, but overall, I'd have to say their lives were actually better.

    Yes, what led me to suspect it was an Islamist terror attack was because I heard that there had been gunfire in several places at once and that tends to be how they go if they organise it rather than the lone wolf. The UK is now on 'severe' terror alert which means they think an attack is now highly likely. However this is said to be because of what happened in Austria rather than information of a pending attack.

    ISIS has described the shooter as a 'Soldier of the Caliphate':

    Of course he's a Muslim. It would be rare if he wasn't. He was raised in Austria and tried to join ISIS. His parents are from Skopje in Macedonia and his roots are Albanian.

    When Erdogan blasted out that the Muslims are being persecuted, it was to arouse them. Did he do it deliberately, or is he so paranoid that he does believe Muslims are persecuted unless other's succumb to them.

    He calls the Aegean and Eastern Mediterranean Turkey's Blue Homeland, and totally ignores the rights of the Greek islands. Somehow his followers have convinced themselves that the islands were stolen by the Greeks and that they're in the right - even though Greeks have lived there for 4 thousand years. You figure!

    I support Trump but that's BS.
    Biden is not Hussain Obamba... i believe he will not change immigration laws nor import Muslim to your towns.
    On the other hand, America should learn from Europe's mistakes and deport extremists and evil Imams.

    The West nerds to stop all Islamic immigration. Hardly rocket science.

    Which is exactly what ISIS and all other Islamic terrorists want.

    Are all the anti-terrorists working WITH the terrorists? I ask because they all want the same things, and many want to do that the same way
