I'm not an experienced Wikipedia editor at all, but I'm just curious. A week before August this page appears. It has nothing to offer. Why does this page exist? I don't accept an answer that cherishes preparation because this site is about knowledge, and not about prediction. This page led to me believing there would be something offered. Can we just leave this page empty, FFS? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 217.135.41.121 (talk) 11:15, 26 July 2016 (UTC)

This page is a disgrace! Ferra Dura (talk) 13:51, 26 July 2016 (UTC)

What makes you sure there would be terrorist attacks in August to create this article??

Feel stupid yet? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.90.117.161 (talk) 12:14, 23 August 2016 (UTC)

I can't keep up[edit]

I'm way behind on Iraqi terrorist attacks. Unfortunately in giving up, and will only add major ones from now on. I also suggest that an article be created to the recent Pakistan bombing, a very major event. Beejsterb (talk) 23:03, 8 August 2016 (UTC)

Random stabbing incidents are not terrorism[edit]

It seems every random stabbing incident in a western country is included. How are these suspected to be terrorism? What is the suspected motivation? Beejsterb (talk) 02:36, 22 August 2016 (UTC)

It seems as if people are still adding these. Now it included random shootings and stonings. Beejsterb (talk) 05:07, 26 August 2016 (UTC)

Some of these incidents have already been deleted. But indeed some are still on the list. These can be deleted as well as well there is no need on keeping them. JBergsma1 (talk) 21:08, 27 August 2016 (UTC)

I was wondering about that too. Like, with regards to the Olympia attack - if any hate-inspired assault now qualifies as terrorism, even if there's no link to a major terrorist group and no deaths, then this list could go on forever when you consider the number of sectarian/anti-Semitism/Islamophobia/racism/homophobia/transphobia/ableism/gender-motivated assaults that occur in each country on a monthly basis - and the focus on Western countries does seem curious. From what I read the Brussels bus station knife attack had no explicit link to terrorism either, although new information on that may have been forthcoming, idk...Algernon333 (talk) 06:28, 20 September 2016 (UTC)

Sagamihara stabbings[edit]

It seems as if the Sagamihara stabbings have a politically motivated perpetrator who targeted disabled people. Should we add this? Beejsterb (talk) 05:12, 26 August 2016 (UTC)

In my opinion we should, just like the Charleston shooting (which was aimed against black people) was this attack specifically targeting disabled people. And the Charleston shooting is on this list. So this seems to me suitable as well.~ JBergsma1 (talk) 21:03, 27 August 2016 (UTC)

There is no "political motivation" behind targeting disabled people. More like a targeted killing, more or less. Terrorism wasn't even mentioned at all during the incident, so it would be a textbook example of WP:OR to classify this as an act of terrorism. Parsley Man (talk) 01:34, 2 September 2016 (UTC)

Incorrect categories[edit]

Why is this talk page part of the Islam wiki-project and part of categories on Islam? This article is not on Islam, it is on terrorist incidents. Sure, there are terrorist attacks by people motivated by Islamic means, but there are many terrorist attacks that have a perpetrator motivated by other means.Beejsterb (talk) 05:14, 26 August 2016 (UTC)
