The UK, France, Germany and now Canada have been hit by a wave of vehicular terror but the US, seemingly a juicier target, is spared. Why?

By Mark Tracey It has not been determined that Minassian was a terrorist yet that is the narrative of this TOK question. Why are they trying ramp up terrorist fears?

By Mark Tracey Did he hate women or was he just intimidated by them? It appears to me to be another case of mental illness not responded to properly.

By William Dykeman Rodger killed six people and injured 14 others in a stabbing, shooting and vehicle-ramming attack in 2014 near the University of California, Santa Barbara campus.
Investigators noted that Rodger was motivated by a personal grievance related to the extremist ideological subculture of men's rights activists. Supporters believe women don't want gender equality and have been brainwashed by feminist propaganda.
After his rampage, Rodger died from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

By Mark Tracey Is a formal group or just a collection of misguided individuals playing the same game. Does the group have a name? If it is terroist in nature why did they not claim credit for the attack?

By William Dykeman The Toronto van attack that killed 10 people and injured 13 others on Monday caused shock and horror worldwide, and its method immediately raised suspicions of terrorism. Since then we have learned that the suspect appears to have published a post minutes before, claiming to be part of an “incel [involuntary celibates] rebellion” and praising a misogynist who shot six people dead in 2014, saying he wanted to punish women for rejecting him.

By Dan Anderson Mark - Please define terrorist, then. What qualifies as qualities which make people a "usually seen" terrorist?

By Mark Tracey Generally terrorists causes are religious or political in nature, the Toronto van killer is responding more to his personal emotional shortcomings in his ablity to interact with women.

By Dan Anderson Mark - then a terrorist is not specifically religious or political in nature, right? It can be a person with a multitude of problems. There is no "typical terrorist."

By Mark Tracey Spoken like a true leftist. You recognize groups not individuals then offer negative descriptions and accusations without any evidence.

By Dan Anderson Mark - Your own rabbi, Jesus, was a liberal/leftist. How does that fit with your claims that leftists are the terrorists and terrorist sympathizers?

You talk about a lack of evidence - Look at what you have been posting. Absolutely NO citation toward any of your claims.

By Mark Tracey You label Jesus as a liberal and a Leftist yet that is contrary to the atheistic values of the Left. Jesus was clearly not an atheist.

Where are my claims that leftists are terrorists? Going back through this thread I can see nothing from which you could draw that conclusion. You are attributing words to me that I have not written.

By Dan Anderson There you go again, making claims without even learning about terminology, let alone facts about your own religious beliefs. Learn what Jesus actually taught in your bible, and THEN let's talk.

I never claimed Jesus was an atheist. YOU are making that connection, not me. The "left" position is not an "atheist view." Where you get that idea, I have no idea.

I suggest, again, that you learn before you speak. You are insulting yourself and pushing potential Christians away from your beliefs.
