Are the apples human lives who need rescue from tyranny and violence? If so, then yes. I would take the whole bushel and eat every last apple. My life is no more important that those hundreds/thousands of other lives, and I'll risk my one life to save all of those.
I hope that clears up my stance on it :moo:
Are their lives more important than the lives of the citizens here, that are put at risk? Why don't the other Middle eastern countries do something to save their lives? Why do we need to invite them into our country to do so? Cant we give aid financially to help them stay in other Muslim counties where they feel more at home?
How is he a wannabe? He DID commit a terrorist attack and tried to kill a bunch of innocent people. That elevates him out of 'wannabe' status, imo.
I interviewed the Ohio State attacker on the first day of school. It felt important. Now it’s chilling.
Ohio State Attacker Abdul Razak Ali Artan Bought Knife in Washington
Ohio State University attacker Abdul Razak Ali Artan visited Washington, D.C. late last week and bought a knife at Home Depot, though investigators do not know if it was used in Monday's ambush, law enforcement officials told NBC News.
Investigators don't yet know why Artan, an Ohio State student and Somali refugee, was in the nation's capital days before the attack, which officials say may have been inspired by ISIS or the radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki.
"It's a mystery at this point," one said. "Was he planning to do something here? Was it something else? We simply don't know."
Artan also bought a second knife at a Walmart in Columbus the morning before he drove onto campus, rammed his car into a crowd on the sidewalk and began wildly stabbing people until he was shot dead by a police officer.
There's a difference between someone using Islam and radicalism as an excuse to cause harm and someone who is part of a larger terroristic agenda. It's a blurred line, but it's there.
Does he have known terrorist ties or is he a wannabe?
Think long and hard about this:
Abdul Razak Ali Artan was a welcomed guest in the United States from June 5, 2014, until he carried out his terrorist attack and was killed November 28, 2016.
That is a grand total of 907 days.
During those 907 days, he was given transportation, permanent residency status, fed, clothed, housed, and educated in 2 different institutions of higher learning, given civil rights, including freedom of religion-- all on U.S. taxpayer dollars. And after 906 days, he decided he had simply had "enough", and carried out a terrorist attack in the name of islam-- his words, not mine.
907 days of incredible opportunity, freedom, compassion, and generosity. Think long and hard about that.
And then think some more about what he did, and why he did it. Not why "we" think he did it, but why HE says he did it.
Insanity is doing the same thing over and over, and expecting a different result each time. Also known as magical thinking.
Hurrying to class at Ohio State University on Monday morning, education student Kerri Strausbaugh was suddenly aware of chaos unfolding around her — people screaming and running for their lives.
She looked around to see what was happening and saw a stranger coming straight at her with a butcher knife. They locked eyes and then he said something she will never forget.
"I'm going to kill you."
Does it work that way where everything is paid for ?? What program does that?
That is what I wanna know! I kinda think we are gonna find nothing else on his FB page. Don't know why - but, I have been so off on this just don't know!!
In this climate, someone, who happens to be from another land, saying they have concerns about praying, that , sadly, is probably a valid concern-
Does something not feel "right" to others? I hate that notion of "snapping"......................
