@coldjoint,
As I mentioned - it was not a comment on the validity or otherwise of those actions - rather a comment simply in relation to the quote.

People are entitled to their views as to the right or wrong of things, but they should bear some resemblance to the known facts / known facts should be acknowledged.

What do you think all the apologists on this thread do? They:
- ignore or excuse each and every terrorist event (most of them can't bring themselves to even acknowledge the event)
- ignore the number of them
- ignore how they are ongoing in nature
- ignore the breadth of them across the world
- ignore what the terrorist shout as they commit such
- ignore the belief systems the terrorists hold
- don't want to think about what the above things mean as a whole, nor why such exists...
...even before we get to intolerance in the name of religion

...and apologists, while doing the above, criticise those who criticise the above.

We shouldn't engage in behaviours we criticise others for. If we ask others to critically evaluate something we have an issue with, we should also critically evaluate our own beliefs.

Pope slams culprits behind Philippines church service attack

Islamic State has claimed responsibility for twin bombings that killed at least 20 people during a Catholic Church service in the Philippines, the militant group’s news agency Amaq says.

The attack on Sunday on a predominantly Muslim island in the country’s volatile south wounded 81 people, and was one of the deadliest in recent years in a region long plagued by instability...

Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack, issuing a formal communique saying two suicide bombers had detonated explosive belts, according to the SITE Intelligence Group which monitors jihadist activities.....

In an incredibly sad day, the below happened. I never thought I would see it in either Australia or NZ, though the lack of conversation around this subject has long been worrying.

Hopefully police find and charge every person who contributed to this disgraceful act of terror.

As a note, though the below article calls it an act of terror, many sources, including NZ's Prime Minister have called it an act of violence, which is quite racist (as were it a muslim who perpetrated it on a church, they would by now be calling it an act of terror).

Australian gunman opens fire in Christchurch mosque terror attack

A man in his late 20s has been charged with murder after an Australian terrorist opened fire at two mosques in the New Zealand city of Christchurch, killing at least 49 and injuring 48 others.

New Zealand Police Commissioner Mike Bush has now confirmed that 49 people had been killed.

Until more details are known, it seems like a revenge killing coupled to the desire for recognition using shock value. Knowledge is replacing faith, planetwide.

@vikorr,
New Zealand is not Muslim nation. An attack like this should be expected when governments coddle Islam. People grow inpatient and angry, some of them are bound to act. I am not condoning any terror attack, but wanting revenge is human nature. Remember we are dealing with a faith that inspires mass murders to advance that faith. Until Muslims are called out and challenged about their deadly belief system things like this will happen. Only God knows who this guy inspired to do the same.
