    So as the title says, only 9 minutes ago at the time of writing, a van hit a number of people on their way out from prayer at Finsbury Park Mosque in London.

    So what are your thoughts? Was it justified killing innocent Muslims because of the London and Manchester terror attacks? Or is it another sign of the perpetuating violence in our society?

    It doesn't make it right. Yes there have been tons of attacks in the name of Islam but murder is murder. Now matter who causes it.
    People are afraid and fear mongering will be the end to so many, even if fear may be justified. I'm not defending the horrible acts that have been done in the name of Islam, but nor will I defend these acts either.

    Wow, a terroristic attack not committed by muslims!
    That certainly is newsworthy!

    Sorry I can't take the sarcasm out but I don't mean it sarcastic.


    Anyway, poor people like always.
    Never ending cycle of terrorism in Europe unfortunately.

    The question exists more for the sake of discussion rather than agreement I believe

    Over there ;)
    GOSH Fricken serious? Are they okay? Geesh, on their way out from prayer no less.
    Do we know for certain that this was intended?
    I hope this isn't gonna be like, THEY STARTED IT.


    No this isn't justified, Muslims are human beings, they deserve every right everyone else has the right to.
    This is sad actually.

    Good chance of that given the situation, but you don't yet know that. Although underreported by the Western press, most terrorist attacks happen in Muslim countries, with Muslims doing the killing and Muslims doing the dying. (This isn't a bleeding heart liberal post - I'm just saying I wish they'd keep it at home if they're gonna act like that.)

    I wish they wouldn't at all

    Edit: Interesting. TIME is reporting this as though it's "just another terrorist attack;" no mention of who the victims were or possible motives of the drivers

    Same. Taking female genital mutilation as an example. I wouldn't want that done at all to Muslim women

    What the fuck? "Was it justified?" People have to ask this!? Of course it wasn't! How can anybody honestly think this kind of shit is justifiable!?
    I just don't understand.

    No. Of course, there's going to be these extremist assholes who think that all Muslims are terrorists. Just.. No...

    Whoever thinks that this was justified, needs mental help.

    It's infuriating that it has happened again. I don't care what one's beliefs are, innocent people are innocent. Period.

    Seeing how Theresa May and the UK govt are pushing so hard for censorship it wouldn't come as a surprise if this was part of the plan to legalise 'Islamophobia' as a real hate crime.

    God damn it. Just a day without some tragedy!

    They want to push censorship on the internet and like the saying goes: 'Never let a tragedy go to waste.' which Theresa May hasn't.

    Isn't Theresa May the one that wants to make sure refugees can't come into the UK, though?...

    I'm guessing that it's just standard PC propaganda. Filtering all the actual hate crimes away from what they want us to believe are hate crimes.

    She'll say one thing, do another.

    For those thinking Corbyn would be any better.. yeah. He's just as bad but plays the good cop while she plays bad cop.
