Keep in mind, Muslims kill each other as fervently as they kill other people.
They kill over differences amounting to the number of angles dancing on the head of a pin.
Shiia, Suni and others, have been fighting and killing each other for more that a thousand years.
So blowing up a mosque is not a surprise.

Anyone else notice the distinct difference in reporting between this event and the NZ mosque shootings?

50+ dead, weeks of coverage, swift move to reduce individual rights. Calls for similar actions in countries not involved.

300 dead, 1-2 days of coverage, no follow up on the victims or arrests. Out of the news cycle. No calls for action to reduce the civil rights of a random class of people who weren't involved.

Hmmmm.

shooting in nz was extraordinary. What happened in sri lanka was just another day.

It is still in circulation here. I havent followed news for a couple of days since I busted my knee and I have not spent time at the computer then.

Body count was apparently lowered to around 260, some of the pieces were counted multiple times.

Mark Twain nailed this particular kind of naivety in his novel "The Innocents Abroad".
It's "exotic". Recall the two women who were beheaded while hiking in Morocco. https://pjmedia.com/homeland-securit...-as-terrorism/

I have relatives who plan on going to africa. I asked my sibling where in africa and they didn't know. Nucking futs! With a 75" 4k TV and "Nature" and "Nova", you don't have to leave your LayZ-Boy to see the world.

Briefly noted in local news:

I believe last night police/army raided a place where some of the terrorist group were. Firefight followed, few suicide bombs went off, results included 15 dead of which 3 were children. On location afterwards they recovered ISIS flags and clothing, explosives and stuff like that.

What I've seen earlier mentioned on news, there has been like 140 people arrested that were related to the NTJ group.

In the last few days there has been speculation about "outside help" and I think this latest finding of isis related stuff confirms who was the helping party.

There was also a good article somewhere about why these targets were selected and why Sri Lanka at all:

First, targets were against christian churches or tourists in general. This pretty much means that targets were given from somewhere else. If the NTJ group had chosen targets by itself, they would probably have been government related and maybe buddhist temples since those are the "main opposition" of NTJ I believe.

Second, Sri Lanka as a target country makes sense. It has a muslim minority and after these attacks some muslims were attacked as retaliation. Now it is easy to imagine how the muslim minority there is oppressed and need desperate help in fighting back -> more people radicalize and join the terror groups, either in Sri Lanka or other countries.

Basically choosing these locations and country was worldwide advertisement. Isis could could suicide bomb almost anything, anywhere. Something like this guarantees worldwide news coverage.

This is the future until all the ex-IS returnees are dead. There are hundreds if not thousands of them in Europe, and you can guarantee they are spreading the word. It's going to take a little more time until we wake up and realise that we're at war. It's a bit like watching the bombs fall from the Luftwaffe aircraft, while insisting that it's not the fault of the German people and we mustn't fight back in case we offend Hitler.

One headline was pretty spot on: "This was just a test run"

Quite possible that it could happen anywhere in the world on any scale you can imagine. To think otherwise is delusion.

Hmmmm.
Sri Lanka has had decades of terrorist acts until recently, 168 suicide bombings since the 80's, a civil war. They have many terrorist groups operating domestically and this was carried out by just one small group. So it wasnt such a big shock that it happened there.

Sri Lanka has a less than exemplary govt, they dropped the ball on this and are struggling to let it all blow over. They avoided facing the cameras. The fact that they are highly dependant on tourism and want this out of the news cycle as soon as possible.

The plain fact is, if the disaster, terrorist attack or otherwise wasnt done in a white society we relate to, we loose interest, and the media knows it.

NZ's attack was more of a surprise, and carried out by a non nz citizen. It didnt make nz seem like a terrorist hot spot or a place you would purposely avoid, they didnt shun the media in fact the prime minister fronted over and over again. It was something western nations could relate to.

The media show us what we want to see, look at the forum activity on this site over the 2 events, it reflects the same lack of interest or discussion about the sri lanka bombings.
