    At George,

    I meant "planet" instead of country.

    Denial ain't just a river in Egypt.

    It would probably do the same as you taking all violent christians, atheists, and any other faith you want to mention. What you stated is not fact, it is opinion. Even if it happens to be right, which I doubt, it was still a guess on your part. There are a select few from every faith that committ terrible acts. Do we then associate every act of violence to the religion that they belonged to?

    "Can you imagine how peaceful this country would be without Jihad and militant Muslim groups?"

    The actions of Adam Lanza, Jared Loughner James Holmes, Eric Harris, Eric Rudolph Andrew, Joseph and other would suggest otherwise but keep trying.

    btw acting like no one already refuted this line of logic does not make their post disappear.

    Muslims will have more to do with the next World War than any single group of people. TRUTH!

    Can you imagine how peaceful this country would be without Jihad and militant Muslim groups?

    LDS In your flair for the dramatic, "And yet, shockingly,
    they killed over 500,000 Muslim civilians looking for imaginary WMDs that didn't exist during the Bush wars for oil." Can you please provide an accurate break down on the cause of the deaths, for example how many were NATO forces that killed combatants as opposed to civilians. And then how many were sectarian caused deaths as in terror attacks Sunni against Kurd, or Shiite; Shiite against Kurd or Sunni; Or Kurd against Sunni or Shiite. And differentiate between NATO attacks that killed civilians and Combatant attacks against NATO that killed civilians.
    And then would you discuss the democratic leaders signing off for the WMDs and their oil wars.

    Yeah lady, your sons are innocent. They were forced to make bombs, get caught on camera, kill police officers, throw bombs at them during a chase and plan to bomb time square. Yes, they must have been framed. Smart lady.

    Is anyone surprised by this? A mother proclaiming that her children are innocent.

    Every group of people has their own jargon. I am LDS and we have our own jargon. The word "Sealed" in the LDS community means something very different from the way it is perceived by the general population. Those of the Muslim faith are no different. This lady may even be telling the truth from her perspective.

    It all depends upon the meaning of the word "innocent" and other words as well. Only an expert on their culture could determine where the truth lies.

    And once again the terrorist make up less than .0004 percent of the Muslim population far less than 1 percent yet you want to through all Muslims into the same category. Using your reasoning we must condemn all Americans.

    george:

    muslims make up 1% of the US population

    And yet, shockingly,

    they commit substantially more than 1% of recent terrorist attacks.

    ===============

    And Christians make up less than 1% in Muslim Countries,
    And yet, shockingly,
    they killed over 500,000 muslim civilans looking for imaginary WMDs that didn't exist during the Bush wars for oil.

    You might want to think who the REAL terrorists really are.

    Interesting history, Judo-christian societies have existed for 2,000 years, No current Islamic country has a government as old as ours. No judo christian country has a government as old as ours except The Isle of Man's Tynwald Government. Interest by Europe in Islamic society arose during the Renaissance not because of. You could postulate some of the effect was a result of the Ottoman Turks, when they conquered Constantinople (1453) generated a wave of Greek scholars bringing manuscripts in ancient Greek, many of which had fallen into obscurity in the West.

    I guessed from day 1 this was done by Muslim terrorists.

    Being that Muslims make up less than 1% of the population, there was:

    1) a 1% chance I would be correct in my guess

    OR

    2) there is a stronger correlation between Islam and terrorism than many people want to admit.

    There are people even in this thread who told me on day 1 I would be wrong and that the murders in Boston were likely carried out by NRA card carrying Christians.

    No.

    I was right.

    Lucky guess on my part?

    I think not

    Many muslim people may be decent people

    However, when 1% of the population is committing a substantially larger percentage of

    terrorist activities, clearly a correlation is established.

    Islamic law has resulted in failed society and failed society.

    ============

    Um, I beg to differ --
    Islamic societies have been around for over 1400 years.

    America? not even 230.
    In fact - by the time the Pilgrims first arrived Islam had still been around for over 1,000 years.

    The Muslim world is responsible from bringing Europe out of the Christian led Dark Ages and introducing the Rennaisannce.

    Yours is just a ignorant paranoid comment comprising bigotry and religous intolerance.

    @Moderate
    So, is this how the FBI operates? That's a scary scenario, of crying wolf.
    They still need to communicate those wolf cries to local police departments. Maybe they will take them more seriously than what you are describing.

    @USAlover

    As has been pointed out repeatedly over the last couple of weeks (including on threads you have commented on) the 22 terrorist that have attacked our country in the name of Islam represent less than .0004 percent of the Muslim population in America so you will excuse me if I do not believe your comment is anything other than hate speech.

    You imagine this:
    FBI Boss: Anything happening on our terrorist watch today?
    FBI Guy: Nothing really. Russians are looking at a guy, but it doesn't appear to be much.
    FBI Boss: Let's take a break and play Call Of Duty

    What really happens:
    FBI Boss: Any threats standing out in the billions of communications we montitor every day, and the millions of people we're watching?
    FBI Guy: Nothing more than usual. Oh, the Russians sent us something with the thousands of Chechnyans they are monitoring.
    FBI Boss: Great. Mix it in with the thousands of reports from Britain, Israel, Brazil, Thailand, Italy...

    It is always easy to catch the guy with hindsight. Much, much tougher in real time.

    Islamic law has resulted in failed society and failed society. Poverty, violence, subjugation of women, corrupt government. Their countries are failing.

    They now seek refuge in countries whose ideologies they hate yet desperately need to survive.

    This is not hate speech. Go to Europe. See if for yourself. I've lived there. Muslims want food and shelter and peace and stability yet nothing in their religion fosters that fruit.

    This is a criminal investigation, not a religious assessment. They can believe what they will and join the Truthers or whatever satisfies their paranoia. But they cannot kill and maim others, it's that simple. It's ironic that Muslims are killing other Muslims with great frequency in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan yet there isn't much objection to that in the radical community.

    All I can say is actions speak louder than words. What someone claims they are or aren't is easier to observe from what they do than fdrom what they say.

    I have no problem with the Muslim people.

    Retired L.A. police investigator, Mark Furhman nailed it on the head. IF the FBI shared intelligence info with the Boston Police Dept, after getting the Russian intel, like they are supposed to, the bombers would have been apprehended within 2 hours. The FBI wants to maintain their exclusivity and status.
