    Islamist terrorist apologists say something similar about western interference in the Middle East.

    You mean the UN.

    The document is an "intergovernmentally negotiated agreement, prepared under the auspices of the United Nations, that covers all dimensions of international migration in a holistic and comprehensive manner”.

    Austria, Australia, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Italy, Israel, Poland, Slovakia and Switzerland have already stated they will not sign the agreement.

    According to the NZ Prime Minister this morning, it is being called a terrorist attack and is being treated as such.

    NZ are treating it as one.

    "It is clear that this can now only be described as a terrorist attack," Prime Minister Ardern said in a press conference.
    So are the Australians

    As are pretty much everyone else. Even the Daily Mail.

    Although judging from the comments section a good proportion of their readership would disagree.

    Considering that this can be done without an account or logging on I would recommend you take the validity of those with a truck-load of salt. If at all.

    The DM has a large circulation, I wouldn't say a good proportion disagree with normal decent standards. I would say that you should take the 30 or 40 downvotes with a pinch of salt, you can do it not logged in and you can easily trick it to vote multiple times.

    Doesn't help anyone by casting aspersions on a good proportion (your words) of the DM readership.
