  1. Not surprising at all. Probably a bunch of Friday night drunks just out on the town.

  2. Furtz this is more than a Friday night drunk. This is pure hatred and racism to the core. You know that I am religious and Catholic and Christian and I sure don’t approve of this garbage done. What is going on in the Middle East is not for just anybody to understand but you have to go back to the Old Testament to get a bit of understanding and still it is difficult. What ISIS and ISIL are very few Islamic people approve of this kind of stuff – this is highly fanatic but you don’t go and destroy a Mosque or an Islamic Centre over this. Those Islamic fanatics are beheading their own people because they do not approve of what is going on. I want to make it clear that it isn’t just Arabs or Afghans or Iranians or anything like that in this war but also white Europeans, Canadians, Americans and Aussies who have lost their minds and gone to fight in this insanity. There are many good Islamic people and that is true. We all have our own faith. This is pure hatred. The Jews went through hell and still going through the hatred and racism along with we Christians. This is complete ignorance on people’s part and racism and hatred and not just someone being intoxicated. This is completely and totally uncalled for.

  3. You nailed it Jules. They might not have been intoxicated Baptists. They might have been completely sober. Once the crime has been solved, we’ll know for sure. ROLF ROLF…

    You are replying with the typical Canuck response.

    Try living in the UK or Belgium and your thoughts might change a bit.

    It is impossible to be “racist” against islamics – they come in all colours and in all races. Islam is an ideology and not just a religion – it is all encompassing in a believers life – and sharia is the foremost goal of a true believer.

    Just be happy your little world is safe and sound for now – but if you are young enough, you will find it will be changing dramatically within your life time.

    Why else would Norway be expelling islamics?

    Do your due diligence and look that up before responding negatively to this post – and remember – tolerance is only a one way street in most other parts of the world.

    Even the Ottawa citizen reported on how Canada’s multiculturalism and Canadian innocence is abused by certain immigrants and terrorists only two days ago.

    I will not tell you where the majority of those terrorists worship to keep from being banned here.

    That is what leads to incidents like the one reported here in this news outlet. Some Canadians are beginning to resent how our multicultural society is being abused by others who do not value our ways and will start to respond – and not always in a manner that you might approve of. And I suspect it will grow over the next few years.

    I recognize I open myself to a rabid response from many – but the world is not a “nice little town” where, if you keep your nose clean you can live a quiet life.

    Just sign me as a western guy who is happy he is no longer living in the middle east and he wishes the middle east would leave here.

  5. In the words of a very famous US radio host William (Bill) Cooper “if you do not know who your enemy really is then you are losing the war and yes you are losing the war” and it isn’t the regular Islam, regular Jewish, regular Christian, etc. I know what it is and you have to study things the way I did and still do to understand what it is all about. What happened in Kingston is an act of complete and total ignorance along with hate and racism. What is going on in Ferguson Mo proves my point of hatred and racism. You do not know who your enemy really is and you are losing the war and will continue to lose the war.

  6. Jules, we have to stop agreeing. What will Jaime do if he doesn’t have to moderate us?

  7. Hugger Jamie moderates more of my stuff and doesn’t put it through more than everyone combined. That is the truth. LOL LOL. ROLF! My posts that are not put through outnumber the ones that get posted. Jamie is pretty well in a nervous breakdown with me on line. LOL LOL.
