    That is "extreme right wing," terrorists for you. By concentrating on "Islamic" terrorists, the threat from the "extreme right," has been ignored.

    Lankou, New Zealand is a very liberal country which would never consider itself on the receiving end of terrorism, wherever it comes from. So I believe they may have been complacent in respect to all terror threats.
    The extreme right has not been ignored worldwide, in fact their have been several cases of them being locked up in our country.

    The sinking of the Rainbow Warrior was the most recent terrorist attack, that was carried out by the French government.

    Resources are concentrated on "islamic" terrorism, when frankly home grown "far right" terrorism is not getting the attention from the security services it should be.

    We may as well spare the obligatory, crocodile-tears 'Our thoughts and prayers are with the loved ones of those involved blah, blah, blah', not only because it's false and meaningless, but because this is only the beginning: extreme violence begets extreme violence'; to retaliate is merely the natural response of the human condition, in that if one's own family is attacked, one will defend the family members against the attackers with extreme prejudice. In other words Muslims must be on the defensive the same as the rest of us, because they're victims of this jihad too: but then it's partly their own fault, because if they didn't subscribe to Islam there would be no Islam, QED?? Also they're so easily identified by the fact that they refuse to integrate into their host countries' habits and customs instead of leaving them 'at home'? So we'd all - well, at least those who have that inexplicable urge to 'congregate' - better get used to 'praying' at home if we want to live to pray another day. After all, we didn't start this war?
    A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.

    I see that the Wales/Ireland had a minutes silence for the Christchurch massacre.

    What about this?? https://www1.cbn.com/cbnnews/cwn/201...-brutal-attack Happened a couple of weeks ago. Any mention anywhere of it?? And let's face it, its not a particularly isolated case. Nor do we hear about this https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2019/...193655675.html which might have led to this attack.
    Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.

    I was talking to my wife about this earlier. There has been cards sent to various mosques with messages that "We love you", that's in the UK too, apparently.
    I don't remember any messages of support being sent to churches in the UK when those attacks in Nigeria, or similar attacks in Pakistan or Indonesia occurred.
    So you are right to raise the disparity.

    When the boot was on the other foot,it was thoughts and prayers all around,now suddenly they don't count any longer,it is a funny old world for sure.

    I think you are right to raise the issue. But it's not an issue of attacks by Islamicist extremists not being reported, as we know that they frequently are. It's an issue of people not bothering much about what happens in a place like Nigeria. It's also I suspect why we hear little about attacks on Muslims by Christians in Central African Republic.
    It's amazing how common this narcissism is: I disagree with person A, and I also disagree with person B, therefore A and B are identical - Daniel Hannan
