Several vehicles "deliberately rammed" on motorway in Berlin area.
Local police believe it to be Islamic terrorism.
The suspect stated that he had "a dangerous object" but nothing was found.

I am sorry to say that I agree. At least there seems to be a general acceptance that in this and in other similar cases, that the police acted correctly in shooting the attacker.

It has been normal for the last 1400 years.

F*ck Islam. It's the most evil ideology ever invented by humans, and the time has come to stamp it out. Every time this happens, demolish the nearest mosque. If it happens even more, demolish five. Then maybe these ****s will get the message.

I suppose that we now have to wait to see just how long it will be before some nutter picks up the idea and runs with it in the UK. London or Birmingham are my bets for the location with London a strong first. The perpetrator might come from Bradford or Slough though!

I am glad that I moved from London ! The risk of being a victim of terrorism is in fact low, more people are killed on the roads than are murdered by terrorists.
But for some not logical reason, the risk of being beheaded or blown up FEELS worse than the risk of being run over.

And it is at the back of my mind, that a much larger attack is possible with hundreds or thousands of lives lost.
London is a more likely target than North Somerset.

We are both in north Somerset and Id rather be here than London or a city you were sensible to move . But years ago I had someone threaten to behead me who lived in Gloucester this was over insulting Mohammed . and a lot of fundamentalist websites were based in a very quiet part of Gloucester, .This was prior to 9,11 I think he was later arrested. So we have loons all over the place

I did a double take on that one as "Loons " here are an aquatic migratory bird that is labeled endangered but is actually doing pretty well even on very small lakes and ponds surrounded by summer camps.
The camp owners and their guests enjoy watching the mother loons swim by their canoe or boat with their new chicks riding on their backs.
Their calls at sundown are indeed forlorn and remind a person of teenage loves lost.
