    In the EU there are spates of incidences based on hate, racial and religious crimes in thew UK, France, Belgium, Italy, Germany, Poland etc. The EU should ensure that the perpetrators of such actions were swiftly brought to justice!Again you are not a democratic elected organisation! You are nothing but a group of un-elected bureaucrats run by Bankers and Multi-National Corporations hoodwinking the general public.

    @lanka talking like an idiot. In Europe and USA many suicide attack were done. These people were civilized and advanced people having whatever weapons they need. Did the people go on rampage killing all minorities of that attacker. They allowed the law to deal with it. That is the attitude of civilized people. Can you call our people civilized?
