    I blame Trump and the Jews. And maybe global warming. They don’t have a carbon tax there. Nothing to do with Islam.

    • Damn right.

    • You are totally right about global warming. Those gases ignited or something.

        The carbon evolved into a pipe filled with nails hooked up to a detonator.

    Somehow I don’t think Putin is going on national TV and start moaning about Root Causes.

      Indeed. There is a story (not from the Islamist-compliant media) about how the Russians handle terror attacks on their people in Syria. They send in special forces to murder the families of suspected terrorists, murdering the entire extended families. The terror attacks stopped.

      C’mon. Somebody obviously felt excluded.

    One can bet that (1) the death count will rise and (2) it was an Islamist war crime. Oh, I forgot, the media cartel will minimize the significance of this.

      10 to 1 it’s the Chechens.

    Meanwhile here in Sunny Ways Canada, Bernie Farber has a rant at the Toronto Star website, that ISLAMOPHOBIA IS RUNNING RAMPANT IN CANADA! Of course he blames evangelical Christians, Jews, and the right wing media.

      Which brings me to a tale about how Mr. Farber lies. About seven or eight years ago, Mr. Farber in a National Post interview stated that he, as then-head of the Canadian Jewish Congress, protested equally against anti-Semitism from both the radical right and Muslim groups. I did a check of the CJC press release for the past year, when he made that statement, and the CJC protested only against four anti-Semitic incidents — all of which were minor cases involving isolated radical rightists. In one case, someone scrawled an anti-Semitic statement on the inside of a bathroom toilet door.

      Seven or eight years ago, the anti-Semitic movement in Canada, especially at universities, was in full bloom. Yet Bernie Farber at his CJC let all of that pass. To rebut Farber’s lie, I had a letter-to-the-editor published by the NP.

      There must be many stories about how Farber connived with radical Islamists to minimize (or erase?) their anti-Semitic agendas. Nearly all the anti-Semitism in Canada is from the radical Islamists — yet Farber goes along with the hate. The national media cartel refuses to publish the recent calls be radical imams supporting the killing of Jews. Needless to say, Bernie Farber is fine with that.

    Authorities have released a preliminary statement: “Little concrete information about this devastating attack is available at this time, except for the obvious fact that it has absolutely nothing to do with Islam. And even if it does, it is the work of mentally ill lone wolves who have wilfully distorted the peaceful doctrines of that great, glorious, heroic religion out of any relationship to their true meaning.”

    Turdo is most upset about the backlash against his people.

  • The Trump-Putin alliance antagonized usually peaceful Muslims.

  • John

    Well, at least we won’t be seeing any of those silly vigils where stupid fucking retards show up with little candles and fuzzy, tiny teddy bears.

    And no for talk about a possible ‘backlash’ either, cuz it’s a sure thang!

    Expect this story. Trump will issue a statement offering his condolences to the families of the victims, and the media and Democratic Party will report that his statement is proof that he is a Russian spy.
