The attack was identical to the one carried out in Paris.

---

Two people have been killed and five injured in twin shootings in the Danish capital, with one attack targeting a cultural centre hosting a debate on Islam and free speech and the other a synagogue.

Two attacks in Copenhagen—one at a free-speech debate and another at the city’s biggest synagogue—have left one dead and three injured. The gunman behind both was later killed by police.

The event, attended by the French ambassador to Denmark, was hosted by Lars Vilks, a Swedish cartoonist who became infamous after a cartoon portraying the Prophet Mohammed as a dog in 2007 attracted death threats. Vilks, who was unscathed, was the apparent target.

The attacks immediately brings to mind the events in Paris and beyond that began with the massacre at the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo last month. But in fact, it was Denmark that began this whole cycle of debates and attacks on free speech and these latest attacks bring the whole grisly thing to a full and vicious circle.

Why is every incident where someone takes a shot at someone of a different religion a "terrorist attack?" Doesn't that happen pretty much every day here in the US? They're not all described as terrorist attacks are they?

If a 'lone wolf' jihadi who has no official terror group ties, is a terrorist for shooting someone dissing Islam, is a gang member in the US shooting another gang member also a "terrorist?" Is a crazy guy shooting up a crowded movie theatre a terrorist or mentally ill? What about an atheist shooting Muslims? Is he a terrorist atheist?

There's a double-standard at work.

But look on the bright side. There must be at least a couple of dozen posters here who will be happy to hear about how their agenda is proceeding so swimmingly.

COPENHAGEN, Denmark — Here is a timeline of events in the shootings that rocked Copenhagen this weekend. Two people were killed and five police officers wounded before the suspected gunman was shot and killed by police early Sunday.

3:33 p.m. Saturday - A gunman opens fire with an automatic weapon against a cultural center hosting a free speech debate. A Swedish artist who caricatured the Prophet Muhammad and the French ambassador are among participants. They are unhurt but Danish film director Finn Noergaard, 55, is shot and killed. Three police officers, two of them from Denmark’s domestic intelligence service PET, are wounded. Police say the gunman carjacks a Volkswagen Polo which he abandons a few kilometers (miles) from the scene. He then calls a taxi.

There is something wrong with your brain. It isn't working the way brains are supposed to work.

I suggest taking it in to the brain shop for some emergency servicing.

May be Copenhagen : Islamist Attack would have been more accurate a title of this thread.

How about just 'mass shooting' like everywhere else?

The PM of Denmark said that she would do everything she can to protect Jewish people living in Denmark.

The objective of the shooting was to terrorize people. It does not seem like mass murder was the objective as is evidenced by the fatality count.

I fully agree it was "terrorism." Not disputing that so much as our making every little incident an act of terror, but not every larger scale one like in Aurora, Co. and such. Then it's the act of a mentally deranged person, not a terrorist. While I know the definition of terrorism, and understand absent political or cause-motives makes it not-terrorism, it seems more like semantics than anythign truly significant. Thus it's prejudicial.

If we called every shooter in the US a terrorist that'd be preferred. Then it wouldn't be we're constantly making mountains out of molehills making every Muslims' actions feed into the "Islam is a terrorist religion' thing.

The desperation with which apologists for Islamist terrorism try to create false equivalencies gets pretty ridiculous at times.

This is obviously terrorism because A -- it was motivated by ideology, B -- it had a political purpose and C -- the victims had no prior relationship with the perp.

The numb nuts who salivate every time Mr Pavlov rings the dinner bell by offering all their sophistry cannot seem to grasp that the stupid examples they offer by way of defending the terrorism do not fit the criteria at all.

The guy is a piece of shit. Plain and simple. He does not give a fuck about Muslims and their well being. Sometimes it is important to consider the history of a poster before considering the post in question.

This is a terror attack because the method is shoot the cops first allowing the following shootings then run. It is the scheme of the terrorists. My question is why run? You have served allah or whatever his name is by killing infidels and so you are going to heaven and screw 18 young nymphs for eternity.
