    Where there's peace, hatred tends to be stand out.

    You'd have to be a compulsive gambler to not immediately feel this was committed by Islamic terrorists, right?

    Reasonable people would not place the actions of murders on the whole population from whence they came.
    Just because this will likely be perpetrated by fanatics does not mean you should drop kick Hakeem Olajuwon because they pray to the same God.

    I know the past has always been awful, but it sure feels like there are mass murders this year than in recent years past.

    God, what a devastating year for the French. I hope they figure out how to put an end to all of this soon.
