  1. Munich shooting: Gunman acted alone, say police (BBC, July 23, 2016)
    http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-36873180

    “A shooting at a Munich shopping centre which left nine people dead was carried out by one gunman who then killed himself, German police have said.

    The motive for the attack, in which 10 people were wounded, is unclear.

    A huge manhunt was launched following reports that up to three gunmen had been involved in the attack at the Olympia centre.

    The body of the suspect was found about 1km (0.6 miles) from the shopping centre in the Moosach district.

    German media reported that the man had shot himself in the head…”

    • WrathOfKahn: once again they LIE !!! this vermin was not alone – he had, according to credible witness reports – at least one other guy with him, one in the name of whom he obviously did it, because, as witnesses have said, he shouted his name “allah” (u-akbar) while aiming for children to kill.

      And another thing that truly annoys me: the media increasingly translates “Allah-u-Akbar” as “GOD is the greatest”. Allah is not GOD, Allah is a MUSLIM.
      //end of rant mode.
      My excuse for my even hotter anger today is that I am a native Bavarian.

      • Yes. “Allahu Akbar” means “Allah is greater”, not Greatest or God or real great or anything else. It means my god is better than your God. That’s what it means. It is both offensive and rude, that’s what it is, and we have to work up the nerve to be rude back. To tell them that their religion is inferior and is the sole reason why Muslims are flooding out of the Muslim lands and heading for the West. Islam sucks! Islam is a bad religion that needs to be eradicated immediately if not sooner…

        • @Chris Jones:
          “… we have to work up the nerve to be rude back. To tell them that their religion is inferior and is the sole reason why Muslims are flooding out of the Muslim lands and heading for the West. Islam sucks! Islam is a bad religion that needs to be eradicated immediately if not sooner…”

          Hear Hear ! And “all these Mulsim lands” which were not Muslim lands until they invaded and as they now invade ours, after having destroyed the lands they stole.

  2. So the shias try to distance themselves from the sunnies but they are the same. Really. The Iranians are no better.

  3. ‘Boom boom boom – he’s killing the kids’: Iranian gunman, 18, shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ executed children in Munich McDonald’s before killing NINE in mall rampage and turning gun on himself

    A number of people have been killed and another 21 people are injured after gunmen went on a shooting rampage
    Police operation is ongoing in Munich, with the force warning people to stay in their homes and avoid public spaces
    Terrified shoppers were seen running for their lives from the Olympia Shopping Centre after hearing gunshots
    Witnesses said that the shopping centre gunman screamed ‘I’m German’ and ‘Allahu Akbar’ before shooting
    Shooter reportedly fled after his shooting spree on the city underground network, which has now been shut down
    His body was found half a mile from the scene. Police believe he acted alone after initially looking for three gunmen
    He has now been identified as an 18-year-old Iranian, who has been living in Munich for more than two years

  4. I suspect that the most fieverish activities are happening behind the scenes with Merkel and her accomplices scrambling to arrange a “lonely wolf, mentally disturbed” announcement.

    An INDIVIDUAL !!! Personally I am sooooooooo irritated at that expression in regard to islamists/muslims: Islam is an organism, it has no individuals only degrees of organs…shiites may be marginally less violent than salafists – ISIS may be extreme but they are not apostates – the cancer is ISLAM !

    And, a brief confession – not to my glory either: The terrorists, but even moreso the political and media manipulators have gotten to me in such a way that (after initially seeing last night it may have been a non-muslim native German, as was widely asserted on social media by whom?…) I feel increasingly “relieved” that, once again the terrorist was a muslim.

    If that ^^^ is too strong, please feel free to delete it, Eeyore!

    • I know exactly how you feel. It the terrorist did happen to be some insane wing white guy like Anders Breivik, the left would hold that up as the example of the norm and say that no one has a monopoly on terrorism, and that right wing Christians are just as bad as Jihadists any day of the week. That’s what the idiots believe, apparently…

  5. And one other thing: these “double nationalities” with islamic background (quite a few of them in the French Government including the Minister for EDUCATION – talk about giving EDUCATION of the French Youth to an Arab Muslim) will never ever be German/French/Belgian/English/Swedish/Canadian/American – how goes the cliché ? “You cannot make a silk purse out of a sau’s ear” ! Clichés have become clichés because there is usually truth in them.

    • Back when common sense was used people understood that you can’t be loyal to two nations, that is why dual citizenship is a modern thing. This is going to be another liberal creation that dies during the war. We are seeing people start to reject the hyphenated nationality and we will see dual citizenship rejected.

      It took roughly 120 years for the left to get us into this mess and it will take about the same time to reverse the damage. This doesn’t mean we should be depressed and stop fighting but it does mean that we should stop expecting an early and easy victory. The left has been promising to fundamentally change society, well they have succeeded and for us to change back to the world thqt Classical Liberalism created will take time and money. It will be done the same way the left changed society, one step at a time.

      • @ Richard,

        ” hyphenated nationality” (I will plagiarise that one ! :))

        Excellent points and I like the optimism (healthy and feel-good optimism) which you include !

      • The LSM (lame stream media) followed the standard leftist line of can’t find the motive and there is nothing to see here.

        • Imagine if, during the Battle of Britain, they went through the same song and dance every time a bomb fell on London. “We don’t know what the motive is at this time but we’re doing everything we can to figure it out. For all we know it’s the Tories who dropped the bomb. Who can say…?”

  6. What I am wondering, how this guy got his weapon. In Germany to get a gun permit (Waffen Besitzkarte) you have to meet certain criterias
    1 a clean police record ( Polizeiliches Führungszeugnis)
    2. pass a test in firearms hanling and safety and the with ownership relatet laws
    3. a valid réason for owning a gun [ member of shooting club (membership at least one year before purchasing first gun )or having a valid hunting licence]
    So he either had to have clean police record, or have contact with criminal or terrorist organisation.

  7. Not a big deal, but the people filming the encounter over the car park’s roof are not speaking Russian, sounds more like Romanian.
