Yes, as are some incidents of domestic violence wrought by people claiming to be Muslims, yet the Christians are quick to call them as "islamic terrorists."

Perhaps, but a Muslim committing DV doesn't normally yell "Aloha Snackbar".

I knew he was black.  I didn't know he was a pastor based of the extremely light media coverage.  I also don't know of any cause he was carrying out, but why do it in a school in front of children ?  If he was indeed a pastor, makes you wonder if there was some intent to 'teach' a lesson about sin.

It's where his wife worked and he knew her schedule.  I doubt "lessons about sin" had any more to do with it than "gun free zone".

^doubtful. This guy was too far gone to make much of a calculated decision regarding his own safety, which he didn't care about anyways as evidenced by his suicide. There is evidence that he had accused his wife of infidelity and the end result is th we students were terrorized.... So that's at least two pieces to a puzzle which will never be solved (absent him leaving behind a note)

Exactly, he didn't care.  So his lack of a good decision is meaningless.

Three Dead in Fresno Shooting Spree, Suspect in Custody

http://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/three-dead-fresno-shooting-spree-suspect-custody-n747996

Three people were shot to death in less than a minute at separate locations Tuesday in Fresno, California, authorities said. A fugitive wanted in a previous homicide was arrested at the scene.

The man, identified as Kori Ali Muhammad, 39, who investigators said used the alias "Black Jesus," was arrested and was being held awaiting at least four counts of murder, Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer told reporters...

While the gunman yelled "Allahu Akbar" ("God is great" in Arabic) during the incident, it was too early to say whether terrorism was a factor, Dyer said.

Muhammad is black, and all of Tuesday's victims were white, Dyer, said. Social media accounts linked to Muhammad expressed anti-white and anti-government sentiments, Dyer said.

"This was a random act of violence," Dyer said. "These were unprovoked attacks by an individual who was intent on carrying out homicides today."

Bombing of Borussia Dortmund Bus Targeted Club’s Stock, Prosecutors Say

Quote
BERLIN — Germany’s elite antiterrorism unit has arrested a 28-year-old German-Russian man who is suspected of trying to blow up the Borussia Dortmund team bus, with the apparent aim of driving down the price of the club’s stock so he could profit through a speculation scheme, federal prosecutors said Friday.

The suspect, identified only as Sergei W. in keeping with German privacy laws, was charged with attempted murder, inflicting serious bodily harm and carrying out an explosion in the attack, whichwounded one player and one police officer.

His arrest represented the clearest explanation to date of the motive for an attack that has been attributed at various times to Islamist extremists and right-wing and left-wing political groups, and has added to election-year fears that Germany is vulnerable to terrorism.

According to prosecutors, the suspect had checked into the hotel where the team was staying. On the day of the attack, he purchased 15,000 put options over the internet for shares in Borussia Dortmund, which is publicly traded. These would have entitled him to sell shares later at a predetermined price.

The financial maneuver could have resulted in a substantial profit for the suspect if the shares had undergone a “massive fall” value in the interim, prosecutors said. “A significant share price drop could have been expected if a player had been seriously injured or even killed as a result of the attack,” they said.

'Alarming' rise in use of children in 'suicide' attacks by Boko Haram in Lake Chad region – UNICEF

12 April 2017 – The use of children, particularly girls, by the Boko Haram terrorist group in violent attacks in the Lake Chad region has seen an “alarming” surge in 2017, the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) has reported.

According to the UNICEF report, Silent Shame: Bringing out the voices of children caught in the Lake Chad crisis, 27 children have been used to carry out bomb attacks in public places across Nigeria, Chad, Niger and Cameroon in the first quarter of this year. During the same period last year, the number was nine.

Islamic State Nears Egypt Tourism Hub With South Sinai Attack

The Islamic State’s Egyptian affiliate claimed responsibility for an attack on a police checkpoint near St. Catherine’s Monastery in south Sinai, the latest strike by the group against Egypt’s Coptic Christian minority and the country’s vital tourism industry.

One policeman was killed and three others were wounded when militants opened fire at the checkpoint, the Interior Ministry said in a statement late Tuesday. Several militants were also injured in the shootout. The Islamic State claim was reported by SITE Intel Group, which monitors jihadist channels on social media.

The good news is this kind of incident would never happen here in 'Merica where every other person is a law-abiding concealed carry guru waiting to save the world. 

Also nice to see--the police in Paris still wear police uniforms.   Here in the USA, they would have been delayed by 30 minutes to all run to the station and change into their woodland camo fatigues.

^^ How is that bus bomb terrorism? it was an attempt to make money.  The only relevance to this thread is that people had thought it might have been terrorism, but it seems it wasn't, so I guess that's good to know.

This is a good example of why the two separate threads made sense, by the way. The Paris attack yesterday was part of a coordinated, ongoing wave of terrorism perpetuated by radical Islamists against the western world. That's a different topic then some random guy trying to manipulate stock prices.

If you're a Radical Islamic Terrorist this might be the worst way to go:

Wild boars overrun Islamic State position, kill 3 militants

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2017/04/25/wild-boars-overrun-islamic-state-position-kill-3-militants/100876844/

Three Islamic State militants setting up an ambush in a bitterly contested area of northern Iraq were killed by a herd of stampeding boars, local leaders say.

Sheikh Anwar al-Assi, a chief of the local Ubaid tribe and supervisor of anti-ISIS forces, told The Times of London the militants were hiding on the edge of a field about 50 miles southwest of Kirkuk when the boars overwhelmed them Sunday. Five other militants were injured, al-Assi said. He said the group was poised to attack a band of local tribesmen who had fled to nearby mountains since militants seized the town of Hawija three years ago.

Meanwhile, a Radical Islamic Terror attack that claimed 140 lives this week snuck under the radar of American media. The NY Times had this article on page 37 or so:
