    Demonstrations in Gaza are Islamic criminals acts.

    “they have caught suspect in tram shooting” is to exaggerate and tell stories for kids.

    When you say “catch” means you have arrested the perpetrator AND ALSO the head commandeering the action, the imam, mullah, whatever he is. If not, it is like fighting against Mafia, but leaving always aside undisturbed the dons, the capo-regimes.

    The mainstream media are trying to fudge the attack with the “honour killings “line.
    So this individual boards a public transport vehicle shoots at least 9 people killing 3 ,obviously strangers.
    This is somehow transformed to a family dispute ,it could only happen in the west.
