Churchill NZ under lockdown!

this has occurred within the last hr or so - this is craziness regardless of what religion you support. Some say the 'holy wars' are over - you must be kidding it has just turned into a new style guerrilla warfare.

Mosque and worshippers attacked and killed with reports of a second mosque to be confirmed

Terrible news...who would have thought it far right activists in New Zealand of all places. I hope all are safe now.

Re: Churchill NZ under lockdown!

It's now inevitable that this sort of thing happens and it'll get worse.

bit of a sweeping statement and no rationale or evidence to support your views?

Anders Breivik for starters. But the lesser responses, some quite trivial, such as putting rashers of bacon on mosque doors.

Such things seldom make the news, probably to prevent more people taking the direct action against the terrorists and their supporters in our midst that they see being ignored ----- but they are happening.

I'm thinking of my family and friends and all New Zealanders at this awful time. I think of South Island as my second home.

Re: Churchill NZ under lockdown!

I was really shocked to learn about this. Its so hard to believe that it's happened in such a progressive country as New Zealand, especially with its well-renowned reputation for welcoming people from all over the world.
Flippin heck, when one thinks of that beautiful country, the first thing that comes to mind is the All Blacks, Sunshine, somewhere one would love to live as well as Australia.
Never would one associate it with a cowardly terrorist act.

It just goes to show that nowhere in the world is safe. Terrorists can and obviously do, operate anywhere.
Very frightening indeed. More heartbroken families, and for what?. It's all so senseless.
