That's why it's important to be proactive when your in a crowd passively watching someone getting beaten up.There was also a recent experiment in peer pressure. People were in a room with a fire alarm ringing, and smoke entering the room from underneath the door, yet noone dared to contradict a "leader" that kept saying "don't worry, it's normal, dont be such scary whimp" (which would cause anyone to become a non-group member when rebelling)I think that is the thing: we are actually not sure that if one man charges the rest would follow.There are plenty of examples of some kind of thugs attack happening on a train or something, one man deciding to step up but nobody following and the one courageous man being knifed ...But this is a different situation to the ones we have seen (apart from the buffalo vs lions thing), as people around are not being attacked or threatened.Maybe buffalos are better than us!

But yes there is a bit of a resistance coming from palestinians resulting in the killing of israelis from time to time.

I'm not sure how shooting norway kids helps his case, but his views about muslims are exactly right.

LOL! How about blowing up subway, hijacking planes,suicide bombings and cutting throats of anybody who does not want to live by sharia law? I guess it's not a threat to muslims like you, but it's sure as hell threat to some people. You don't give a fuck about european culture and traditions, you abuse their democracy to grab what you can. Do you think ALL europeans will be watching this shit quietly until it's too late? I don't think so.

the percentage of "muslims" who are terrorists is probably smaller than the percentage of norwegian terrorists.look at the number of muslims/arabs who live in the west and the number of people who commited terrorist stuff (remember also that 9/11 terrorists did not live in the west).same probably holds if you look at muslims all over the world...so, really, this idea that of trying to associate muslims and terrorists is not only wrong but dangerous.Now from a different angle.I think everybody agrees that what that guy did was bad/evil.But what about US/UK killing hundreds of thousands in Iraq? Isn't it worse? (at least in terms of number of victims)I say Irqs but there are also many other countries where western (especially US) intervention has rfesulted in the the death of many innocents. Note: I am not trying to minimise the horror of what that guy did. I am just saying that some of what some gvts do in not so nice.

I don't think so.LOL right back at you. You think Europeans should worry about terrorist attacks from Muslims? I am European and I strongly disagree. Historically, most terrorist attacks in Europe have been at the hands of Christians or non-religious groups. I would guess that ETA and bombings related to the Northern Ireland "Troubles" are behind most of the terrorist attacks in Europe. And now we have ABB, who labels himself as a "conservative Christian". **This leads me to conclude that terrorist attacks are not an action particular to Muslims.***TE-SAT 2011 - EU TERRORISM SITUATION AND TREND REPORT

Hate is the lifeblood of fasicm. Fasicts need an opponent, just like soil needs water. If a fasict cant find an opponent he will devise an imaginary one, just for not fighting against his own clothes.The only positive outcome of the Norway events is that EU authorities start to realize the threat from the "egg of the snake" that in certain countries has gained even parliament representation and even has corroded security forces, and hopefully will take decisive countermeasures.

Do you understand yourself what you wrote here?I say: since say 2000, there has been 2 islamist terror attacks in the european union: london and madrid. total deaths ~240.There are ~17m muslims in the european union.Now, there are 5m norwegians in the european union, and the number of deaths caused by norwegian terrorism is ~80 since 2000.So, norwegian terrorism is more dangerous than muslim terrorism in the european union since 2000.The conclusion is that the people going on about muslim terrorists are just crazy fascists. Not only crazy, but dangerous, since that norwegian guy was influenced by those people.edit: of course, Norway is not part of the EU! Well, if we replace European Union by Europe my point is even stronger since the total population of muslims would then be larger, and other number staying the same I think.
