Jihad is in no way senseless. The purpose of Jihad is to establish Sharia. We in the West consider it senseless because it appears that way to us. But that's a reflection of our inability to put ourselves in the position of those whose beliefs differ markedly from ours.Another senseless incident. Hearts and thoughts with those affected
Home Depot Truck used to mow people down.
Belief is not only relevant, but essential to explaining these events. These events occur precisely because of the beliefs of the perpetrators. Jihadists believe that non-believers in Islam should be killed. Therefore these are not random acts of senseless violence, but specific acts, engaged in for a specific purpose. Dismissing them as random acts of senseless violence is dangerous, because doing so has the potential of disabling our ability to understand, and thus counter, the ideology causing the violence.Murder is murder, belief is irrelevant. The U.S.is a democracy based on rule of law.
Please dont conjecture on my knowledge of Jihad or Sharia.
One does not require to put themselves in a position of such beliefs, and doing such would not make it anymore right.
That's like saying killing is ok if your a killer.
I find your comments insensative to the tragic murders that occurred.
Regardless of race, religion, creed, color, etc., if you have an evil mind, you will do evil things. Period."Between 1982 and October 2017, 51 out of 90 mass shootings were initiated by White shooters."
Did they release any info on possible motive? I had the news on most of the day but it was just the typical news media talking in circles as there had not been a media conference from law enforcement yet.Today, another mass shooting in Texas at a church. Very sad. Prayers to all the victims. The Shooter was a white Male.
In terms of mass shootings, statistically, in the U.S., mass shootings have been mostly undertaken by white men..
Regardless of race, religion, creed, color, etc., if you have an evil mind, you will do evil things. Period.
There is a good stat from washingtonpost which covers just about all of the mass shootings in the U.S.
Again, regardless of the shooter's stats, an evil person will do evil acts.
Guess more will come out once things settle down."The shooting suspect has been identified as 26-year-old Devin Patrick Kelley, federal law enforcement sources told CBS News.....
Air Force spokesperson Ann Stefanek said in a statement that Kelley is a former U.S. Air Force member who served from 2010 to 2014. Records confirm Kelley previously served in logistics readiness in New Mexico until his discharge in 2014, Stefanek said. Kelley was court-martialed in 2012 for two counts of assault on his spouse and assault on their child, Stefanek said. He received a bad conduct discharge and confinement for 12 months."
