Sure,  this is like one of the first questions any traveler with common senses would ask when selecting his/her travel destinations is, 'how safe is the neighborhood?'  Is that a valid question? Yes.

 

Another scenario concerns medical safety --- quarantining a population that is exposed to infectious diseases.  Often enough not everyone (including animals like chickens, cows) in the population is infected but for safety's sake the whole group is quarantined.  If this happens to a country a black travel signal is hoisted.  

 

This is another reason, in addition to face, prc china always suppresses this kind of news until the outbreak is so obvious that it cannot be suppressed anymore --- tourism money.  SARS is a good example.  "SARS" comes in many forms, though .......

 

"But he also did attribute some of his actions to the poor treatment of Muslims,...."

 

This kind is even more dangerous than the Muslims, the fanatical, violent, warmongering extremists within a population who actually are looking for wars, under the pretense of "universal love".   Without the Muslims they will just look for something else to create bloodsheds and wars.

Yeah, have a look where West (ZATO) is bombing and spreading democracy .... and you'll get a map.

 

However, above act wasn't ruled as 'terrorist act' by the cops at the scene, but 'mentally unstable & drug user' who is under arrest. No fatal casualties reported as of yet!

Melbourne car ramming: 32yo driver has a history of drug use and mental health issues

 

 

Just for the record:

Not a terror act. Mental health issues.

Thankfully Oz has gun control.

Thoughts with the injured.

The Australian government has an aversion to saying anythong that may, in the moat obscure context be remotely possible to maybe make someone feel offended particularly if they belong to an ethnic group or religious group.

It may just be some dickhead who has some mental issues and happened to be fucked up on drugs. Is it racist to say that a lot of Afghan people do in faCt have mental health problems and drug problems?

Call a spade a spade.

The gun laws in Oz are pretty meaningless. Bad guys have no trouble getting them and have no respect for the law.

Yes.  

I bet you a dollar to a doughnut this goes back to nutcase sucking allahsnackbar's _______.   Any of you who figured it's just some weird co-ink-a-dink,   that is a young, male Somali ramming a vehicle into a crowd,,,, well,,, I hate to tell you this, but you are part of the problem.

Christianity is at war with Islam.  Always has been; always will be.

Well, of course!!!

 

But as Earthi said - there are places you want to avoid in the world for a number of reasons, and you'd be smart to look those up before travelling!

 

For instance - you have to be pretty damn wary when walking the streets of South Africa, or Nigeria, or even places in Mexico (depending on where you're from), or Manchester....

 

"A new UN report (link to data) details comprehensive country-by-country murder rates. Safest is Singapore, with just one killing per 480,000 people in 2012. In the world's most violent country, Honduras, a man has a 1 in 9 chance of being murdered during his lifetime. The Economist includes an intriguing 'print only interactive' (see the PDF) and has some tongue-in-cheek tips on how to avoid being slain: 'First, don't live in the Americas or Africa, where murder rates (one in 6,100 and one in 8,000 respectively) are more than four times as high as the rest of the world. Next, be a woman. Your chance of being murdered will be barely a quarter what it would be were you a man. In fact, steer clear of men altogether: nearly half of all female murder-victims are killed by their partner or another (usually male) family member. But note that the gender imbalance is less pronounced in the rich world, probably because there is less banditry, a mainly male pursuit. In Japan and South Korea slightly over half of all murder victims are female. Then, sit back and grow older. From the age of 30 onwards, murder rates fall steadily in most places

 

 

Don't want to be hurt or killed by a terrorist - don't go to Iraq, Iran, Pakistan, Egypt, Libya, etc.

 

If you're American, you are much safer leaving your country than staying in it...

Again I see a lot of whataboutisms and getting away from the topic.

 

Let ask a simple question based on factual observations. 

 

Are people from Arab muslim countries more likely to go into other countries and commit terrorist acts? compared with people from other countries?

A:If he did contact the embassy they would tell him to engage a lawyer. They at least might be able to point him towards a somewhat decent lawyer, I don't think they'd be of much help aside from that though. I doubt the lawyer would be able to do much other than help negotiate the compensation he will need to pay.   -- Stiggs
