    Australians won't take this lying down... I suspect backlash against muslims in the country.

    Are all your posts this thoughtless?

    This isn't a war between Islam and Australia.

    Note Australian discrimination and violence against Sikhs.
    Note how Australia completely abolished guns after their last school shooting 2 decades ago (hasn't been one since).
    There is no war between islam and Australia, but it's certainly not a religion that will be welcomed there if this story plays out.

    What is wrong with these guys? Attacking innocent people is crazy.

    "Has nothing to do with Islam", "cultural, not religious", "socio-economic", "but Israel", "Columbine", "crusades" :rolleyes:

    Seriously, I hope all the hostages survive.

    Commodore, with the usual reminder that 1 in 6 people in the world are bad. You add so much.

    Do you understand the difference between an ideology and people?

    We are focusing on an ideology because of its followers, do you not understand that making absolute statements like "islam is evil" or "all americans are bad", "republicans are racist" are almost always made by the most ignorant in society? Those with the ability to actually reason and understand rarely make such absolute statements. Thats not even worth arguing and I think you would agree with me. I don't want to hijack this pissing thread, but my prayers go out to the families of those that have been pulled in by this monstrous character.

    When bad people follow Christianity , they move to the countryside and buy their own piece of land to keep themselves pure and idealistic.

    When bad people follow islam, hostages, suicide bombing, rape, bombs, bloodshed is soon to follow.

    Does anyone have any suggestions for what can be done?

    People need whatever delusion to help them sleep at night.

    The world would be a better place without religion. Period.

    That was my initial question. We have seen hostage situations hundreds of times before. This dude happens to be wearing an Islamic headband and puts up a flag.......Terrorist!?
