          Yes, I agree that it is quite ironic, but realize that this family has suffered a tremendous blow, and are now being inundated by the media.

          On the other hand, it could be genetic...

        Meanwhile, you just need to realize that this situation is simply Islamic life imitating art.

          I could, but not to the same extent.

            One of America's first wars was with muslims.

            Sure you could. It's fundamentally the same crap. It's their submission to ultimate authority that enables them to do whatever it is they say their authority tells them to do. Be that attacking abortion clinics or targets representing a nation.

             

            And you'll have a hard time divorcing this from politics btw. If the Boston bombers did this against the US because of the latter's war on Islam then you'll have to consider the possibility that there's something to that. The Muslim part of the middle east has been "invaded" and/or "controlled" by the west for decades. Is their resistance a fight for Islam in general or is it a fight for the right of Muslims to do as they choose on the same terms as Christians and Jews? The two are actually not the same thing.

            I wonder how Christianity behaved when it dominated the culture several centuries ago.  I think that with time and leadership the Muslim countries will extricate themselves from this current religious fervor, become increasingly secular and Islam will resemble Christianity.  Or not.

          ^^ probably the god that Muslims, Jews, and Xians worship. What's your point?

            Human beings are violent, savage, brutal, war-loving, etc, have been since the beginning of time and always will be. It's absurd to put it all on one subset.  If the 20th century proved anything, it's that the more advanced and sophisticated we get, the more destruction and depravity we're capable of.

              Those are aspects of being human but they don't have to be the ones we choose to guide our lives.

              We are capable of kindness and forgiveness as well - why not chose those aspects as your guide?

              It's the 21st century now and with instant global communication we no longer have to fear the unknown. If we choose to co-operate instead of compete and make truth a priority so people can make informed decisions, we can take advantage of the modern world instead of causing more "destruction and depravity" - after all, nobody really wants that.

            Some of you are making it really difficult for those who try (day in and day out) to draw some sort of (false) equivalence between the violence perpetrated by modern day Christians and Muslims.
