A massacre on a high-speed train in France was prevented Friday when two U.S. Marines in civilian clothing surprised an Islamist militant who was loading his automatic Kalashnikov rifle, a senior European counterterrorism official told CNN.

The gunman fired on the Marines with a handgun, the official said, wounding at least one of them. Authorities said three people were injured aboard the Thalys train traveling from Amsterdam to Paris.

The Marines overpowered the suspect, who was placed under arrest when the train was rerouted to the town of Arras, about 115 miles (185 kilometers) north of Paris.

The gunman, a Moroccan national, was on the radar screen of European counterterrorism agencies for his radical jihadist views, the official said.

...

The man had plenty of ammunition, the first official said, and the Marines prevented a massacre.

americans dont even need guns see maybe they should be illegal after all so less people will get shot by these things we dont need yet use for no reason the self defense thing is now proven to be a moot point

well this is going to help the social situation of France loads....

i heard that it was in Belgium, but it was a first report thing and the train was from there, so it makes sense

Neo: the extremists want you to think that, they want you to blame Islam and Muslims as a whole. They want our society to hate and mistreat Muslims, so that Muslims within those communities get excommuned and jaded, and turn to the extremists' side

also yeah, this was very cool of the US marine guys, top tier stuff. Very lucky they were there

It's not about the terrorists only. I have a problem with any country that has based its laws on sharia law. I also have a problem with the people who have anti-gay and anti-female world views in general.

I agree, but like most Christians don't follow the teachings of the old testament, or some of the shittier ones from the new. Most Muslims don't want to burn gays and hold their wives prisoners

speaking from UK here, pretty much all the Christians I've talked to (so under 30) have been super chill with gays, as most people our age are. I think its an age/generation thing rather than religious

Actually if you look at poll numbers, the numbers of muslims that hold ridiculous world views is pretty large. Somehow they are always painted as being a small minority, but anti-gay and anti-women world views are mainstream in the muslim religion. Only a minority is a jihadist, but far more muslims are islamists etc. I remember poll numbers that were like 87% of british muslims believed that the people who drew the muslim cartoons should be punished by law. Which is not a small minority.

that isn't my argument you pleb. my argument is lets not hate on millions of people for following a religion because a few thousand are shitty, because we'll just cause more hate and make things worse

I don't understand what's so controversial here, or why you're being so snarky when all you're doing is strawmanning the shit out of my argument.

The problem is that it's not just a few thousand that are shitty. It's literally hundreds of millions of muslims. Sure, that still means that hundreds of millions of muslims don't hold those beliefs, but it is far from a small minority.

That's amazing. The amount of courage it takes to run at someone pointing a pistol at you is beyond what I can comprehend. Those guys did a great thing.

From my experience (which undoubtedly overshadows yours like Saturn next to a toe ring), it's an extremely marginal minority of Muslims who voice pro-gay or pro-feminist ideals. I think you're confusing this sentiment with the "Like most Christians, most Muslims don't want to blow themselves up on a train". That's the one that works; this one? Not so much. Not at all, actually. Not even a little.

I think more than a few thousand Christians believe gays should not be allowed to get married/have equal rights but yes if the conversation could steer away from being a non conversation that would be good

Pretty much. Polls show that only a small number of muslims are jihadis. But that doesn't mean that the rest are enlightened progressives.

wanting a cartoon punishable by law = literally beating women now? okay cool

I think that being that sensitive is ridiculous, and I know that we've got a big problem here in the UK with our cultures clashing. But what is hating them going to achieve? what is taking this "us v them" mentality going to do, other than further drive a wedge between communities?

I hear this shit all fvcking day from my dad and like 70% of people. But what they suggest is "kick them all out they probs want to live in the desert or wherever they came from anyway. Like fvcking excellent plan, you forgot that these are legally British nationals and you can't deport them to where they already live

There's a difference between "not allowing gays to get married" and "having a death penalty for gay acts". Although there are a couple of countries in africa that follow christian doctrine and also have the death penalty for gays, but it is far more ubiquitous in the muslims world.

Plus I am against all religion, so I totally agree that we should get rid of christianity also.

I haven't equated the two. But I bet that if you'd do a poll under british muslims about the status of women, that the results would "hopefully" scare you.

And I have never said anything about throwing them out. I am for opening the dialogue that liberals (my people) keep shutting down with claims of bigotry and racism.

Why do we need an excuse to discuss anything? Given the amount of problems religion in general and Islam specifically, causes I think we are totally allowed to discuss these things.
