You're quite obviously aware of neither.
And the time and place for mentioning the "forgotten" was at the times when it happened, but did it happen to the same extent?

It’s not a coincidence that all of these countries—except North Korea and Eritrea—are predominately Muslim. In fact, “Islamic extremism remains the global, dominant driver of persecution, responsible for initiating oppression and conflict in 35 of the 50 countries on the list,” Open Doors stated.
...

“In the north and Middle Belt of Nigeria … at least 3,700 Christians were killed for their faith—almost double the number of a year ago (an estimated 2,000)—with villages completely abandoned by Christians forced to flee, as their armed attackers then move in to settle, with impunity,” wrote World Watch Monitor in its analysis of the list.

Seems like the guy was into white nationalism and 'great replacement' theories. Some alt-right figures have been removing their videos on YouTube this morning.

Also seems like some left-wing outlets are trying to palm him off as a "Christian terrorist" when his manifesto appears to lean more towards white supremacy than Christian.

Re: Shootings at 2 New Zealand Mosques

A very sad day - my thoughts are with the victims' families and friends.
Shocked to read of the gunman's footage being shared on social media.

Re: Shootings at 2 New Zealand Mosques

Peace and respect to the victims of this diabolical act, and best wishes to their family and friends. Sadly I think there could well be some form of reprisals happening in the near future... Hopefully not.

Says a lot about the character of those who watch or share the footage as if it were some sort of entertainment.

This is as shocking as the event itself.

Re: Shootings at 2 New Zealand Mosques

MI5 are investigating any associates/links to the far-right the shooter may have had in Britain: https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/m...oter-qcnl03ck8

Quote:
A white supremacist who led a gun attack on mosques in New Zealand in which at least 49 people were killed is being investigated over possible links to right-wing extremists in Britain.

Shortly before the killings Brenton Tarrant published a “manifesto” in which he said that he had been inspired by Islamophobic violence in Britain, including the attack on a mosque in Finsbury Park, London.

MI5 is leading the inquiry into the terrorist’s links in Britain after he called for his followers to kill Sadiq Khan, the Muslim mayor of London.

Can we swap Mrs May for this PM?

'Real leaders do exist': Jacinda Ardern uses solace and steel to guide a broken nation

We need this approach to the same problem we face in this country ..

Why was it a matter of time?

btw, it was an Aussie who carried out the shootings, not a Kiwi, and they have very different mind-sets.

I think you're deliberately avoiding my point about incompatible cultures. The Maoris were furthest from my thinking (and I've worked there too).

Were a certain culture to confine itself to its region of origin, then there is less opportunity for the zealots of that culture to bring out the worst unrepresentative of the European culture as perpetated by that Aussie murderer.
