New fun for ISIS folks. Apparently they lowered over two dozen people into vats of acid.

Seriously?

ISIS kills 100+ in Jable and Tartous, Syria.

Suck it, ISIS. Suck it. 

 

Fans gather in the same cafe that was attacked to watch the Real Madrid match.

More like Zidane fans.
Nevertheless, Real Madrid fans have to thank obama and hillary for the great job they doing in "fighting" isis, from neocons in iraq regime topple to afganistan Libya to Syria.They been fighting isis by giving ground to their rise , letting it roam free for all this time, involving these "Incidents "where they capture oil rigs in iraq and syria and could sell oil to USA allies, gain weapons acess as easily .

I've not been keeping this thread updated but that doesn't mean bad things are not happening.

Initial report of 20+ dead in Orlando night club shooting. Early reporting from the FBI indicates shooter might have had ties to terrorist organizations. The shooter was killed.

How will they highlight the targeting of gays without specifically incriminating the culture of Islam? Contradictions within the hierarchy of political correctness are typically not at odds with one another in such an obvious way.

Officials have named the suspect as Omar Mateen, a 29-year-old from Fort Pierce, a city about two hours drive south of Orlando, in St Lucie County.
An FBI spokesman said the gunman appeared to "have leanings towards" radical Islamist ideology but it was not yet clear whether this was a case of domestic or international terrorism.
Police said he had been armed with an assault-type rifle, a handgun and some type of suspicious device.
They have not said whether they think the nightclub was targeted because it is gay.
US Congressman Alan Grayson said it was "no coincidence" the attack happened in a gay club.
And Mr Mateen's father told NBC News his son became very angry when he saw two men kissing recently in Miami.

Horrible. Thoughts and prayers to the victims.

CNN says the shooter pledged himself to ISIS.

Will make it harder for Clinton/Obama to frame this as a right-wing hate crime.

But they sure will use it to tell us how evil guns are.

Oh, and the shooter himself was probably gay. Anyways... this is fucked up shit.

I know this won't register at all, but here's the simplest explanation I can offer of a anti-homophobia stance that doesn't devolve into the anti-Muslim tirade you wish everyone would participate in:

1. Be against discrimination (at the lowest level) and (at the most extreme) violence against gay people
2. Be against political antagonism against Islam--out of commitment not only to freedom of religion, out of a hope to move beyond the "clash of civilizations" worldview, and (in this country) out of opposition to antagonisms against minorities (especially when religious identity lines up very roughly with racial ones)
3. Be completely aware that Islam--broadly speaking--doesn't have a favorable view of homosexuality (no shit, right-wing Sherlock!)
4. But also know that religions, religious cultures, and religious societies are malleable and change. Hope that Muslim groups (whether in Islamic countries or in diverse countries like this one) grow increasingly tolerant.
5. In light of 2) and 4), don't devolve into some foaming tirade against Muslims

Again, I know you really don't give a shit and you won't be happy until everyone joins your "I hate Muslims" campaign. But there's the explanation.

Every time this happens we get the same response from people like you. I don't hate "all Muslims." Accusing me of this is an outright lie. It's getting old. I recognize that it's all but impossible to distinguish good from bad or vet the ones coming into this country. This is not a matter of opinion. It's not my prediction versus your prediction. Europe tried it. They thought they could assimilate them in large numbers and that their open border, tolerant society would change their ideology and culture. It failed. We are trying it, it's failing. People have been killed because of it - thousands of them. We are now having to choose between privacy and security.

What will have to happen in order for you to understand that while not all Muslims are bad, high percentages and sometimes majorities in Muslim nations embrace many of these radical principles? Will they have to detonate a warhead in a western city before you acknowledge that we cannot continue down this road? Your position is not nuanced or enlightened. It's naive and dangerous.

I'm not interested in watching more people die so we can continue to conduct your idiotic social experiment that has already failed the world over.
