Did an islamist finally figure out Europe's true religion ?

I was just in the city watching the Barca game at a bar and literally the entire packed room fell silent when they updated the news on what happened in Dortmund during half-time break. I've never experienced something quite like that before, pure goosebumps moment.

It remains puzzling who's behind it. Think IS is pretty much ruled out by now.
Seems to be down to far left, far right terrorists or hooligans.
Think we can rule our hooligans too, those people prefer face to face fighting.

So extremist political terrorism looks most likely. Quite depressing that we're going down that road again, thought we ditched that in the '90's. Then a new generation of idiots stands up.

That supposed letter claiming responsibility always sounded a bit dodgy. The demands for the closing of Ramstein and the removal of Typhoons sounds like typical far left causes, but the hamfisted way - and dragging Ramstein into it - makes it sound like someone trying to write what someone on the far left would demand.

Update:

German Police forces have detained a person who is suspected to have placed and detonated the bombs. His goal was to send the shares of the club (which are publicly listed) down so that he could make money from put options he had placed before the attempted murder.

Here's a BBC link to the story:

So, turns out that Farage, AfD, LePen, all the usual suspects, were wrong. Not that it stopped them usually tweeting their certaintry about who was behind it.

Just retweet those comments, along with the real reason and keep doing so until Farage et al look like liars.

You have to admit that they had a good chance of being right. I'm glad to see them wrong this time, though.

That said, this is a fascinating turn of events. At least in the Western world, I haven't seen someone try to commit mass murder out of sheer financial avarice in ages.

In the very first instance yes, however it was a bit odd, prior to this one it's been mass casualty when they have had access to weapons or improvisations such as using vehicles to run people over, this one was neither and the 'trail' to ISIS involvement/inspiration (far more the latter in the previous cases) was unconvincing.

After the London attack we had Nigel (Donald's Gimp) Farage tweeting how London is 'in chaos'. I texted a friend in London at the nearby Ministry Of Defence that evening asking how they were, the answer was what 'in lockdown for a few hours, then a longer journey home'. Due to the need for the police and emergency services to secure the area etc.

Our very own Ann Coulter, a vile creature called Katie Hopkins (found fame on 'reality TV wouldn't you know!), tweeting from her excellent vantage position over a 100 miles West of London in similar blood curdling terms. In real life things got back to normal very quickly. Maybe these sorts are just projecting their own panic or doing it for darker motives.
As it turned out, the attacker was a 52 year man born in the English County of Kent. Nigel Farage is also a 52 year old man from Kent, funny old word, isn't it?

There are probably many better targets than that though. Risking multiple murder charges to influence the stock value of a smallish company doesn't appear to be a good plan from the get go.

You can probably earn at least as much money (until caught) with a good twitter frenzy, without hurting anyone.
