Chris BSalt Lake City, UT@Tolstoy,And I would ask you to
remember why the 9-11 terrorists did what they did: Because they believed their
God Muhammed wanted them to do it.There is a strong correlation
between terrorism today and middle eastern Muslims. Let us not forget that.2:37 p.m. April 18, 2013========== Cris BCare to explain the difference between a "Muslim Terrorist", and say a "Christian" terrorist, or a "Palestintian"
terrorist, or an "Irish" terrorist, or a Timothy MCVeigh
"right-wing" terrorist...Because to the rest of us, a
Terrorists is just a Terrorist, period.
@Chris B Several news sites? Really? Two things they are still not Middle
Eastern as you first asserted they would be and two the fact remains we have no
idea what their religion was or what their motivation was. If it turns out that
they were motivated by Islamic extremist then so be it, but it again, it is no
excuse to stereotype all Muslims as it appears you intend to do. @the
truth So because others use gross stereotypes it makes it alright for you
to do so as well? Perhaps you should be the change you want to see in the world.
@lost You may be right; perhaps Chris B would care to clarify if he
is talking about all Muslims or just the terrorist .If he was not he has my
@Tolstoy:Several news sites saying:"The profile
identifies the man as Muslim, with his world view listed as
“Islam.”And you were saying..?
@TolstoyThe Left, liberals and progressives, stereotype the right,
and Christians, republicans, gun owners etc, all the time for actions, or words
or beliefs of the few or actions that took place hundreds of years ago.And not a peep of complaint from you or others of your ilk.So
please stop this egregious hypocritical nonsense.Radical muslim
violence and terrorism is a daily occurrence in the middle east and Africa and
even the far east and Europe.There is very little stereotyping that
needs to be done.
lost in DC--good pointTolstoy,--the pictures don't disprove
Tolstoy,I don't think Chris is saying all muslims are terrorists. And
yeah, you do get an occasional McVey, but the VAST MAJORITY of terrorists
worldwide do happen to be muslim. Worf,I would suspect they
ruled out al qaeda because al qaeda usually tries to claim credit. Don't
know for sure, but that is what I suspect. And to say they are ruling them out
could also be intended as misinformation to get al qaeda to think we're not
@Chris B So because a small group of terrorist claim to be acting in the
name of god we get to stereotype all Muslims as killers? Do we get to apply
that same logic to all religions? care to comment on the pictures?
@worf So you are going to just ignore the pictures and
previous comments then?
The FBI doesn't know who did this, but knew within an hour that it
wasn't Al-Qaeda.Can someone explain why Al-Qaeda was so quickly
@Chris B - Why are you so cynical? Your post is dripping with cynicism which in
my estimation is one of the biggest threats to peace and prosperity in this
nation. Believe it or not, in a country of 300 million people, we are going to
have people with a broad range of political views and preferences. Cynicism is
negative and stereotypical in nature. It is disrespectful and condescending
toward people and things that you disagree with or don't see eye to eye
with. We need civility and respect in public dialogue, not cynicism, sarcasm,
and the haughty attitude that your post and many other posts like yours that
fill comment boards on sites like the Deseret News are filled with.
Hey Chris, I'm with you.
Well, Chris, the photos have been released. It looks like two young guys, and
neither are of Arab decent. In fact, one is clearly white. Care to apologize?
Didn't think so.
raybies, tolstoy, and shawnm:breaking news: Police are going to
release the pictures of 2 men wanted in questioning in relation to the bombings.
The hope is that the public can identify the individuals. I rest
Chris: There is just as much likelihood that the bomber was a right-wing Tim
McVey type as a middle eastern, they you claim the liberals are afraid to put
blame on.Why don't you slow down a bit and let the investigators make
a determination before you put blame where you want to put it?
@Tolstoy,And I would ask you to remember why the 9-11 terrorists did
what they did: Because they believed their God Muhammed wanted them to do
it.There is a strong correlation between terrorism today and middle
eastern Muslims. Let us not forget that.
@Chris B - raybies is right. So far all they have are people that were caught on
camera setting down a dufflebag near the blast area. And for all we know, they
don't know that their face has been captured clearly enough to even
positively identify who they are. It could've been a completely innocent
person just setting their bag down. Unlike the case with bank robbers where the
camera captures the person in the act, there is still a lot of ambiguity with
this case. The last thing they want to do is associate an innocent person's
face with this horrible crime. I'm sure once they have a better idea of who
they are looking for, they'll seek the public's help, if they feel it
will help find the person more quickly.
@Chris B I would also ask you what you remember happening following 9/11
to Musims that had noting to do with the attack? Your gross sterotypes only add
to the cycle of violence not end it.
ChrisB: If you recognized the person in the picture and it was your neighbor
would you wait for the police to arrive to deliver justice?
Why not show the pictures of the men in hopes that somoeone knows them or sees
them? We do it all the time with potential bank robbers, other murderers, child
kidnappers when police are searching for them? Just because this is a huge
national terrorist event I dont get why the same logic of getting the guys faces
out there wouldnt be the best way to find them?If they're
worried about compromising the search, why doesn't that same logic apply
every night on the news when I see faces of people the police are looking to
talk to?Maybe its because the terrorists are of middle east descent
and they're afraid of the PC police(liberals) getting upset at the
suggestion of middle eastern person is behind it. Liberals are crossing their
fingers its not a middle eastern muslim. Its getting harder to harder for them
to defend the notion there is no relationship between Islam and people from the
middle east and terrorism.
