1 van and 13 dead, it's so horrifying. It could've been any one of us, I've walked down Las Ramblas so many times and this is the last thing that crosses your mind.

This attack had NOTHING to do with Islam. Islam is a religion of peace. Pray for Barcelona. Barcelona is united together with love, we will fight terrorism. Terrorism has no religion and 99% of muslims condemn this attack. 99% of muslims are peaceful. ISIS has nothing to do with Islam, the west is somewhat responsible since the west created ISIS and the west sells bombs to ISIS. This happens on a daily basis in Syria, Europe has to get used to terrorist attacks.

This has probably A LOT to do with islam. No matter how much "the west" might be responsible for wars in the Middle East (even though there has hardly been any peace in the region even without western interventions), almost every fanatic is religiously fuelled to kill. Religions are evil tools to manipulate people and none of them has peace as a goal in reality. ISIS based their ideology on Sharia Law which is an extreme version of islam. No matter how many Muslims condemn terrorism and are peaceful people, their religion (just as the one of Christians, Hindus, Jews etc.) is there to build walls, divisions, control and indoctrinate its members so that they don't think but just act a certain way. When will religious people realise how much they're manipulated?

Police just killed 4 terrorist in Cambrills (Tarragona) in a gun battle when they were about to cause a new attack with a van. Apparently they had bomb belts.

I didn't agree with the first part of your post, as not all fanatics that end up killing people are religiously motivated (see Charlottesville). But this part is spot on.

Horrific attack - it's become so normal to see these sorts of terrorist arracks.

13 lives lost - countless families impacted.

I don't know how we'll able to stop this from happening. We don't know how many brainwashed lunatics are there, waiting to attack. I wish there was a way we could destroy all these motherf***ers. :evil:

Getting rid of people like you could also be an option.

Nope, it's super common in Europe tbh, especially in his country.

Funny they don't complain when Europe was colonising the whole world. World for Europe I guess.

You do realise that half of the world wants us to not exist? You're a damn gay and still manage to be this ignorant. Who's to say we are not the next that 'don't belong here'?

I know that being gay =/= being smart and openminded necessarily, but still...

Can xBFG be banned from this section of the board?
In a 4-day span, he's been doing racist comments concerning the news. From being happy about the KKK to this now...

Tragic. So much mindless hate and aggression all over the world. I don't even know what can be done to stop all this.
Maybe western forces should retreat from their war actions in Middle East and leave it be. It hardly brought any good to anyone.

A woman that was injured in hospital just died.
Up to 14 dead now. Sadly it seems the figure might still grow.

Not really funny is that the constant repetition of this argument really gets this point into the head of some europeans. Reminds me of the good old "divide and conquer" narrative and dehumanisation of a particular group of people to provide grounds for an argument.
