Unfortunately this is something that we can't do anything about unless we give up a lot more freedoms than it is worth.

Looks like it could have been an Islamaphobic terrorist attack at Finsbury Park Mosque.

Hope eveyone is okay.

Then what, if "we can't do anything"?

Shall we sit around and peace-pipe-pontificate liberal ideals?

Why did you bring up Muslims, Steve Knight?

[doublepost=1497833725][/doublepost]Was probably more Russian interference.

Lol!

Answer any way you want.

You have a Get Out Of Free PRSI Card.

If you want to answer the OP, go . for . it.

why because everyone on the right assumes in and don't lie about it. Now how would you stop it?

I won't discuss neither the specific event, or the political implications of the part I didn't quote.
But to answer your question: same way we do with all other crimes such as murder, rape, etc.
Analysis, community policing, work, harder work.
We might not stop 100% of it, but we will still relentlessly work towards that goal.

Really? Anti Islamic push back.......who would have thought. The nuts are coming out on both sides. Will be interesting when airliner is crashed into the Mecca cube. What a mess......21st century crusades. We might not need an asteroid to start over with new dominant species infesting the planet.

What's your alternative? As mrkramer said, you'd have to trade away freedom just for the possibility that something would work. But since terrorism can be carried out with something as ubiquitous as an automobile, the amount of freedom lost would likely be too severe.

But again, if you (or anyone else) have some ideas, feel free to present them.

My preference is to treat these events as crimes. Punish the perpetrators (if they've survived) and root out networks. Otherwise, endure them.

To get back on subject...it looks like it was a white guy who ran over a bunch of Muslim worshipers leaving services at a mosque. Sad, indeed. Here's hoping it was just an accident, but given the proclivities of certain groups in England I am not putting aside the thought that it could have been a racially/religiously motivated crime.

If true, he's a terrorist and should be treated as such.
