      Take heart; it has nothing to do with Islam.

    I’m guessing he was a Scientologist.

    I still remember Switzerland as a very clean, orderly and violence free country, but that was before they had Muslims. Do I detect a pattern?

    Now everybody – don’t forget the 48-hour rule. Swiss Police tell us that the attacker was (a) male, (b) 27 years of age, (c) a Swiss citizen, (d) with a “typical” Swiss name, (e) fighting for his life after being injured in the attack, and was (f) “on fire” when apprehended.

    I’m kind inclined towards a “lone wolf” example of workplace (or alternatively domestic) violence perpetrated by someone with known mental health issues.

    So quite possibly it is someone as innocent as Mahommed “Chockie” El-Somali, 27, who was perhaps sacked by Swiss Rail for poor performance of his janitorial work, sought revenge against his former employer. Poor bastard was suffering known mental health issues after the recent Swiss referendum overwhelmingly rejected a “living wage” proposal.

    Just because he was yelling “Alluaha Ackbar!” as he was slashing away is merely evidence of his excited state of mind at the time, and is in no way relevant to motive.

      “fighting for his life”… o come on, let’s be more accommodating. Let’s assist with his dream for martyrdom. But do it slowly.

    Sounds like workplace violence to me.

    Vilaweb the catalan newsportal says that while the cops don’t rule out terrorism , they’re claiming that it’s a crime of passion.

    Umhuh right. Were the injured passenger family members? Or related to the ex girlfriend?
