Sadly it seems there was a school shooting in Kazan. There are numerous deaths amongst the students.

It's a shame people got to shoot innocent kids to make a statement. Anybody know the motive?

This is another Muslim killing. Guy has a Muslim name.

Quote
The attacker was identified as Ilnaz Galyaviyev (19), who is thought to have bought a semi-automatic shotgun legally after obtaining a licence last month; shortly before the rampage, he reportedly went on social media wearing a mask emblazoned with the word “god” and threatened to kill a “huge number” of people.

And the government seems to have reacted.

Quote
Russian president Vladimir Putin ordered Viktor Zolotov, the head of the country’s national guard, “to urgently draw up new regulations on the type of weapons that can be held by the public ... taking into consideration the type of weapon used by the shooter”, said Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov.

Look what the American media makes some people believe:
Putin often threatens to strike US with nuclear weapons.

Worth noting Kazan, is the capitol of the Republic of Tatarstan, along the Volga River.

The area is divided between Orthodox Christians and Sunni Muslims. The Sunni's while now highly divided, are usually a more a sane group of followers of Mohammed.

What a horrible tragedy. Just horrible when children suffer from these senseless acts.

Unfortunately I think you are confusing Sunni Muslims with Shia.

Shia from Iran do not have a history of suicide attacks, or these type of attacks where as Sunni do.

It is my understanding that Wahabi extremists from Saudi Arabia are Sunni.

It appears to me that the young man who committed this violence may have been drugged. Most of the US suspects for this type of violence were drugged with legal medications such as Prozac which is extremely dangerous.

Quote (From Manny's link)

"Galyaviyev is expected to undergo psychological assessment. In footage leaked from his holding cell, he is seen shouting that he considers himself to be a god, and he describes how “a monster began to awaken in me ... I always hated everyone and started to hate even more”.

Have to be quick, but as I noted the Sunni's split. I suspect some are reasonable others . . .

I inserted a couple of helping words to make your statement more logical.

We can continue the discussion when you return. I suspect you're right, that some are more sensible than others.

I will note that the extremist group Al Nusra which were sent to destroy Syria, are all Sunni.... :sick0012:

I lived in Kazan for 6 months back in the early 2000's. The muslims there are decidedly different than what you find in the Middle East.

Seems this guy has cerebral atrophy, an incurable disease marked by the progressive loss of brain cells and of cognitive and neurological functions.

Kazan is a great place and I would have moved there instead of Moscow had there been enough work for me to live a lifestyle somewhat similar to what I had in America all things considered. Incredibly nice people there.

Wifey has family there and she and our daughter spent a week or so there last trip. She couldn't believe how much had been invested there and how beautiful it was. She said it didn't feel like Russia at all.

Yes, because they aren't Arabs.

The Arabs have the same problem as the Jews (and, one assumes, Middle Easter Christians): They are either the best, most cultured, educated, hospitable people in the world....or they totally suck, and there's nobody in the middle.  So the Arab Muslims who are the f*cking problem are drawn from the latter group.

Muslims tend to be a bit wacko on the "true believer" side of things.  There was some survey I saw (Pew, I think) fairly recently where 100% of Muslims polled thought homosexuality should be punishabe by death.

A couple of thoughts:

1.  Death?  Really?  I mean sure, I wish that The Love That Dare Not Speak Its Name hadn't morphed completely into The Love That Cannot STFU, but death?  Really?

2.  100%?  In a democracy, we can't get 100% of everyone to agree that the Earth is round, but 100% of Muzzies are like "Oh, yeah, def kill all the queers."

I only want to add if there are two races made for each other; it is the Jews of Israel and the Muslims of Iraq and Syria.
