    Those groups she cited have murdered THOUSANDS. You don't hear about them as much because one, they are Christian, and two, they operate in places our government doesn't give a **** about.

    It is apropos to point out that there is a Mosque in Garland. It's still there. It will be there tomorrow. Nobody has gone over to attack it. I strongly doubt that anyone will attack it. While some will insist that it's OK, or at least "understandable", to go after others who are provocative it is well to remember that other people are exercising more self-restraint.

    By the way the Islamic State claims responsibility for the attack, such as it was.

Bigoted speech can never be an excuse for violence".

    They never referred to a love of free speech, the free speech laws, Islamic attempts (often successful) to suppress free speech, or the First Amendment. Instead they focus on "anti_Islam", "bigoted speech" and hatreds against Muslims. CAIR Condemns Attack on Anti-Islam Event in Texas - CAIR

    Of course not. Why treat them any differently than anyone else? What have you got against equality?
    That is a load of hot, smoking bovine feces. I honestly do not understand why anyone here is defending either side. Two groups of bat **** crazy religious freaks up each other's hatred ante and some of you people are picking sides. Both sides were wrong and are wrong. Actions based in pure hatred should garner no sympathy or support from anyone.

    The jihadist welcomes death, he is guaranteed a place in heaven. They want to be threatened, it is not rational but they are joyous when the bombs rain down. The texts and tweets of the two in Garland clearly say they were going to their deaths, the fact they failed to kill any of those who insult the Prophet did not matter to them, for their deaths were statements of their faith.
    Just like the Death Penalty...it works every time it's tried.....and I'm all for it! Two less filthy scum on the face of the Earth....soooo many more to go!
    This is a life long battle ......and you need to realize that fact.

    Mornin LD. Yeah and now the media was talking about that ISIS is calling it their first attack on US Soil. They are saying that.....it is coming and they will do terrible things. I guess they think that will cause some terror ad fear, huh?




    Garland (United States) (AFP) - The Islamic State group on Tuesday claimed responsibility for its first attack on US soil in which two gunmen were killed after opening fire at an event in Texas showcasing cartoons mocking the Prophet Mohammed.

    Two of the soldiers of the caliphate executed an attack on an art exhibit in Garland, Texas, and this exhibit was portraying negative pictures of the Prophet Mohammed," the jihadist group said.

    "We tell America that what is coming will be even bigger and more bitter, and that you will see the soldiers of the Islamic State do terrible things," the group announced.....snip~

    IS claims Texas shooting, first attack on US soil

    Naturally, BO and his Team with the Media are having a different take with their pushback.

    Correct. But like always...Sommervile is trying to muddy the waters and provide misdirection!

    Except most of us aren't radical Christians, just normal ones who want to survive and will fight crazy jihadist, when need be!
