    Enough kindling from enough people and threads go pear shaped.
    She is saying I am bullying and attacking her in other threads and bringing into this one.

    It's news to me. I don't think disagreeing = bullying.

    I topk it that way. I stated a thread about inconsistencies in who media calls a terrorist and who they don't. I find it inconsistent. I don't need someone to tell me what terrorism means. That wasn't the point if this thread.

    I can't help but think if he was Muslim he'd be labelled a terrorist. It really p1sses me off.
    I do agree. I also find the media tend automatically say terrorism for anyone muslim but call anyone caucasian something else regardless of it was confirmed a terrorist act or not.

    I think it just frightens everyone and is unnecessary. Then again I dislike the way reporting is done in general right now.

    I agree. So much hatred towards Muslims in Australia right now and the media is mostly to blame. It's so frustrating.

    As usual we can't have a civilised discussion without it going pear shaped. Thread closed.
