  • Drudge reports Asian attacker… I don’t think so. My money is on a “radical mooslim terrorist”.

  • Just so you know folks, how censorship is alive and well at BIN……

    There is much more of this to come. we are at war with this filthy barbaric faith and all it’s followers.

    our problem is that they are amongst us, and they are outbreeding us.

    unless we banish this most toxic of religions right now, it will soon be too late. much more bloodshed to come folks!

    All religions are equally ridiculous.

    It was not very long ago that American christians were buying guns and bombs to kill innocent women,men and children in Northern Ireland.

    However, right now, islam needs to be ejected from the UK, Europe and America.

    There is no such thing as a moderate muslim.

    Where were the moderate germans when the nazi party came to power?
    Where were the moderate russians when stalin killed millions?

    These lunatic,mysogenistic,be-heading lovers need to fester in their own crappy cesspits,
    not in the civilised west. We are commiting cultural suicide, or just suicide..period.
