Suicide bomber blows himself up in Sweden

Approximately ten minutes before the explosions occurred, Swedish news agency TT received an email, also addressed to Säpo, in which a reached out to “Sweden and the Swedish people”.

He cites Sweden’s silence surrounding the cartoons by Swedish Lars Vilks which portray the prophet Mohammed as a dog, the Swedish troops in Afghanistan, saying in audio files attached to the email that “now your children, daughters and sisters die like our brothers’ and sisters’ children die”.

“Our actions will speak for themselves. As long as you don’t stop your war against Islam and degrading the prophet and your stupid support of that pig Vilks,” the man said.

The man also urges all Muslims in Sweden to “stop sucking up to and degrading”. He concludes the message with yet another call to “all the mujahedeen in Europe and Sweden”.

“Now it’s time to act, don’t wait any longer. Fear no one, don’t fear prison, don’t fear death.”

I wonder if the idiot objects to social welfare benefits the state offers him...If you don´t like our freedom of speech, stay in your parody of a country.

It´s kind of lame to say "your children will die" and than you kill...nobody but yourself. I guess he didn´t finish the entire suicide-bomber course.

This news report about honor killings caught my eye.  http://video.foxnews.com/v/4508040/graphic-video-from-deadly-airport-blast#/v/4507799/honor-killings-in-america/?playlist_id=87485

I loved Dr Jasser´s comment about the need to address this issue in Muslim communities rather than pretending they are but an aberration. 5,000 occurences a year in one country is a lot and turning a blind eye to it doesn´t help

On a non-Muslim related subject, PC is getting more and more ridiculous. First I thought that the people who came up with the idea to dress Twain´s Huckelberry Finn with politically correct verbal register win the idiot of the year competition, but Canada is close behind with their banning of Dire Straits Money for Nothing song for containing the word "faggot"

I personally think that it will soon go out of fashion to be PC and people will go back to saying what is really on their mind and then WE MIGHT ACTUALLY HAVE A CHANCE TO ADDRESS WHAT IS REALLY BOTHERING PEOPLE!!!!!!!{#emotions_dlg.lol_fast}

 

Now mind you, I think people shouldn´t purposely hurt feelings but does everyone really have to be so sensitive? 

 

PC is SOOOOO last year!

PC is very last year in The Netherlands, and I miss it. Some people have taken the "freedom of speech" rights to mean "freedom to be a rude a-hole". Since when does voicing your opinion give you the right to insult everything and everybody who is slightly different from you?

 I think being PC and having effective communication without hurting someones feelings are very different barba.  Being PC, in my opinion, is saying something just so you can fit in with a certain crowd or make yourself look good.  If you are being PC you are not saying what you mean but being fake.  There are times where hurting someones feelings is inevitable and there are also times when it is very unneccessary to say what you´re thinking.

Not to mention giving the sense of authenticity in a novel set in a particular time...

What caught my eye? 

Daydreamer in the forum with a capital "D"

daydreamer listed in online users with a lower case "d"

 

Weird...or do you have a split personality/ID?  {#emotions_dlg.lol_fast}

 

Capital D is very straight forward and un-PC.

Lower case d is demure and sweet??? lol

A German actress of Turkish origin, Sibel Kekilli (Head-on) appears in my these days favourite tv show A Game of Thrones on HBO. She´s playing a prostitute named Shae and she´s brilliant

The only way for her to enter Hollywood is to undress. German turn Turks to everything.

 

I have noticed 8 Turkish-origin players in German squad in fifa u17 world cup in Mexico. I imagine in the future we will see more Turkish origin players in German squad maybe more than Poles.
