        There is nothing wrong with northerners killing off themselves, that we will have fewer parasites, insha Allahu.

          That is why I always refer you as pagan anti Christ. Northerners, southerners,easterners or westerners are made by God in such places without heir choices. You are cursed to fault God decision and illogical to think of killing millions of people because of what they never choose to be.
          Exodus 20:13 thou shall not kill
          Deuteronomy 5:17 thou shall not kill
          Matthew 5:21 ye have heard that I said by them of old time,thou shall not kill and whoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment.
          Mark 10:19 thou knowest the commandments,do not kill….
          Luke 18:20 thou knowest the commandment, do not commit adultery, do not kill,..
          Romans 13:9 for this, thou shall not commit adultry,thou shall not kill….
          Only a cursed can claim to be christian and go directly against God.
