Oh great, someones imaginary friend got a person stabbed to death in the street :-(

Any chance the world will grow up and treat religion as the joke that got out of control ?

Two people attack a third one (who happens to be a soldier) would be a street murder.

Two people attack a third one (who happens to be a soldier) while shouting about "Allah" and then it's a terror attack.

Overreactions.

On the other hand, until religious leaders do something about not letting someone claim to be a leader while harbouring crazy lunatics (redudancy required here) this kind of thing will continue to happen.

100,000 + civilians died to topple one person, that's acceptable

http://www.iraqbodycount.org/

Also, do we remember Anders Breivik? 77 people died

This is minor news ...

In South Africa every day there are over 50 people murdered and about 150 women raped.

Seems such an odd case. These guys have a screw loose I suspect.

It wasn't a minor incident for those killed, their families and friends.


I think people should focus the discussion on motives and reasoning.

Any more talk about the victims and people will get banned.

you tell me it wasn't anything to do with religion after watching this video

Common sense is not as common as you think.

Yes, it could be religious. But going from an episode of a couple of lunatics killing someone (murder) to a "terror attack" is a huge leap.

Very strange case this one, read the article on Stuff...not sure anyone really knows what happened. There was a car accident, was the victims in that, or was that the suspects? There were some very brave people in the photos who seemed to be confronting the suspects so that would suggest that the attack was targeted? Crazy world we live in.

It is reported that the two suspects ran the victim down with their car.

True, the only difference is - That's not in the media. People think they know what's really happening on the planet when they watch the news... lol, yea right.
