  1. Get all the Muslims out send them back they cannot live in the west they hate us and this will continue to happen bcz they do it in the name of their god…close the fucking doors on them

  2. All this has nothing to do with islam and i say islam is not terrorist, you can find out about islam, islam is not terrorist

  3. Europe is safe. Tourists welcome. Terrorism is all under control. We will use all our resources to find the perpetrators. Who ever they are and take all measures to prevent this from happening again.

  4. These people hate us all serious I would send all of them back to the desert we're primitive people like them belong there they can stone there woman chop each other's heads ect I have tried to understand them but it's impossible with there religion n wanting to change laws of countries wtf are they doing in Barcelona look at France England spreading there hatred they will never embrace a non Muslim no matter what n for that reason I'll never trust them they hate cathlics Jews America anything that doesn't embrace there religion

  5. Religion of Pieces strikes again! You dumbass Europeans allowed Islam back into your countries! Europeans who drove them out centuries ago are laughing at you from their graves!

  6. BTW, no surprise that the Muslims attack tourist hot spots; that way they have a better chance of slaughtering Infidels from several countries at once!

  7. If they find him, they should tie him up in the street while people of the families that been hit and run him over and over till he dies suffering in pain.

  8. Human beings are members of a whole,

         In creation of one essence and soul.

         If one member is afflicted with pain,

         Other members uneasy will remain.

         If you've no sympathy for human pain,

         The name of human you cannot retain!

  9. when the white dude ran through it wasn't branded as terrorist attack. it took media pressure and social media pressure for them to say it is a terrorist attack.

  10. Pocket Book cult radical religion Islam, radical religious education – is spoiling generation after generation of young muslim kids ! Zero hope with this religion around, terrorism will never end !

  11. vehicular manslaughter over personal belief in foreign countries – terror

    vehicular manslaughter over personal belief in america – not terror

  12. India is facing this issue from last 70 years.. We Hindus are majority in India but these Muslim community are destroying our nation because our constitution has given them rights..
    We had lost so many Hindus in such attacks..

  13. Eastern European countries don't have this problem with islamic terrorism because they have closed their borders to ''refugees''' from N Africa and the middle east.
    I wonder if this is just coincidence?

  14. Islam…relegion of peace.What a joke. Now they say this is the new reality. If you point out the obvious you are labeled a racist and islamaphobe.

  15. Muslim saying it has nothing to do with Islam, is pretty much saying my right hand committed murder and it has nothing to do rest of my body. Until unless Muslim (specially liberals) realize there is problem with Islam and come forward vocally and openly against it, (like Tarek Fateh) nothing will change.

  16. I know what will help…. why don't they hold a candle lit vigil and have a minutes silence? that should do the trick… oh wait a min.

  17. well i got proof of that we cant mix races, just look at the news you stupid fool….. im not wrong, you just need to face the facts

  18. STOP GENERALIZING! It's the cause of ignorant and prejudice, not all Muslims are bad just like not all white people are Nazis like the incident happened in Charlottesville couple days ago. There are radical from both sides, Left or Right. We need to reconcile our differences and work together.

  19. The attacker, according to CBS: '' A WHITE VAN''.. '' A WHITE VAN''.. '' A WHITE VAN''..
    Nothing about motives (Islam) and nothing about the drivers (Islam)…

    CNN supports Islamic Terror by not calling the origin (Islam).
    … and so not taking them responsible….

    CNN only blames ''White Vans''.

    What a joke medium and what a cynical reaction thinking about the many
    causualty's and deads.

  20. Has anyone noticed how "comments are disabled for this video" crops up so often: preventing us from questioning the people who have CAUSED this situation: our Political Class throughout the West. 'St Theresa of Maidenhead' claims "We stand with Spain". Of course she does: she is one with the Spanish Political Class, all of whom have admitted Islamic migrants from places that are, basically, of a lower standard of civilisation than the West; in that they still look to a theocratic form of government.

  21. Do your governments have the moral courage like that of China and Myanmar? If any political party announces they will act like China and Myanmar, you people who bark bark bark behind the fence will condemn them as racist and your Western media will paint him a crook a criminal a mad man to persecute him, your poor pussies.  Behind the computer, you praise China and Myanmar, but then you join the protesters to condemn China and Myanmar for "persecuting the Muslims". Your media and governments have sold their souls to the Devil.

  22. No Vid!!!!as usual! No Blood!!!! AS usual! nothing but trolls here! stupid fucking drill, you were told was real ,and you never even questioned it! enjoy your freedom and tell Tony Greenberg hi for me.

  23. It's very strange and suspicious!! Like last year in Nice the touristic street called "Ae des anglais" was not secured at all. Can someone explain why this famous street in Barcelona was not secured? France and Spain are targeted by ISIS since years ago and this kind of terrorist attack was expected.

  24. Terrorists not in data base of Spain…HHmmm? Too much siesta attitude and not enough Protestant  work ethic like in the Northern Countries…Just like Spain's debts to the EUC. Pure procrastination.

  25. Look up Queen Isabella of Spain – hundreds of years ago she had the right idea, she threw the lot out. The Muslims have been creating problems in the west since they arrived – I want my lovely liberal western secular democracy back. I read the Koran a few years ago, it is vile and they believe every word of it.

  26. Can we believe anything these paid for prostitute's say they even look uncomfortable in their lies nobody believes anything you say we'll see in a while the real truth of what went down not your paid for lies . embarrassing puppets

  27. Its because of the 'sham' American War against Weapons of Mass Destruction under Bush and UK Tony Blair… that caused the spread of this god awful problem… wonder what Bush and Blair and doing now in all their riches… its fuck all to do with muslims.. in india Hindus and Muslims lived in perfect peace until the British Invaded and took charge.. I'm 100% British… we dont want to get all muslims out… we want to get all crooked fucking politician kleptocrats out… make them responsible and accountable for the shit they stir up… make a fucking good example of them… freeze their assets, imprison them for war crimes like SS Nazi… so future political crooks cant or darent do the same.. but yep its easier to point the finger at 'muslims'… fuck the USA and UK and allies killed fucking millions of people… including innocent civilians… and each other… when will we ever learn… IF IT STANDS AT THE FRONT IN A SHIRT AND TIE SHOUTING ITS MOUTH OFF ABOUT WAR AND / OR ECONOMICS… DONT FUCKING VOTE IT IN…

  28. Also FUCK the leftie twats who shout racism .These are the true muslims.I came across a few in the late 80s. Felt uncomfortable around them.Try to avoid them as much as possible.Tommy Robinson is right

  29. This was really a Trump/Russia collusion attack committed to deflect attention away from the Charlottesville conspiracy to murder non-violent Alt-Left protesters and demonize peace loving Jihadists. Trump was one of the phony bearded Muslims who got away.

  30. I feel terrible for the victims, but also kinda bad for the muslims that select people will blame for these terrible events that have happened.
    I am a catholic, but I don't believe that we should judge an entire religion or race, based on a handful of people who make awful decisions. I have no sympathy for the killer, but we shouldn't blame all muslims for this. These people twist the words of the Quran (I think. Sorry if I got it wrong) and make it about killing. Islam is not a harming religion. It is like saying the bible tells you to become an alcoholic. I am sorry if I have offended some people, but I think it is unfair to treat people like that. Although I say this, I can't think of a way to stop this completely fairly.

  31. Shame. white people get so butthurt about a little attack n 1 person dyeing. its everywhere on the news. I dare you to switch places with someone from Syria who sees thousands of people dying each day and everyday. if you watch Syrian news its way different. You will be so shocked you will have a heart attack.

  32. Blame Muslims ASAP .. not even remotely a middle eastern or subcontinental face.
    You fascists are just waiting to smash that ban Islam button

  33. these terror attacks make great entertainment. Far better than tv soaps and talent shows. Does anyone know when the next one is due? I'll have some popcorn ready.

  34. People are calling Muslims terrorist but in Islam if you kill someone you are no longer a muslim. killing is a major sin in islam.
    There all sorts of terror attacks by people of different religions.

  35. Its about time for the united nations to edit books like books of quran, bible's old testament, bible's new testament and many other books of different religions. Remove all verses that sounds made by humans ( in the past used as promises or reward for their obedience for their faith/founder of the group even it is againts the true purpose of God) because these verses only complicates the present and in the future generations lives. All i know is that God don't like these quarrels, war , hatred to each other. Remove all verses that hates human being , True God do not kill lives.

  37. These people are not related to Islam. There is no religion of terrorism. Islamophobia is a disease. Everybody live in peace…

  38. Ur choice to believe or not for me i don't believe don't be mad I choose its a hoax if u don't like fuck off
    Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
    Dats wat happens

  39. What to say. People who start that War will never stop. We all must try soon is possible found the way, how to stop them. We have only one World

  40. Visit our chanel for information on nature tourism, arts, traditions, and culture of the island of sumba, its paradise of MARAPU (belief in ancestral spirits) and megalithic tradition that still survive to this day.

  41. For (stupid) people that still think that __islam__ is a "religion of
    peace", and for politicians who know it isn't and yet promote that
    narrative because they have something to gain from it, here it is:
    __islam__ is a religion of ___terror___. I am surprised that after
    repeated van and car attacks the public aren't overwhelming the
    __islamic__ terrorists and lynching them. A good beating would go a
    looooooooong way to tell them that they will not get away with this type
    of uncivilized __islamic__ behavior in Europe. Wake up Europe!

  42. Politicians keep saying that these attacks are ¨unavoidable¨. Still, they do not take place in Japan, Uruguay, Poland, Slowakia, Romania, Hungary, Paraguay, Costa Rica etc. Why? You figure it out. Has something to do with immigration from certain parts of the world. Thatś all i am saying.

  43. Twixy….that name speaks volumes on the intellectual I am sure you are. You are perfect CNN viewer.See you at next mensa meeting
