    We know the Muslims killed all those people. They are the only ones in the world that would kill themselves with suicide vests.

    The only time we saw a Christian do this is in Ireland a very very long time ago.

    Buddhist would never do this.

    The death toll has risen to 190. What a sickening, thoughtless and cowardly act!

    we shall see...but Tamil nationalists made extensive use of suicide vests during the civil war...what happened is bad enough without people including posters here using it to stigmatize entire groups...btw atrocities in the name of Buddhist nationalism is a thing...see Burma

    not at all...as I said what happened is bad enough without it being used by you and others to stigmatize an entire group or faith...it is sad that you would feel a sense of vindication if the perpetrators turn out to be muslim

    I have a Muslim as a neighbor, he is really cool and a white wife and two beautiful kids. We talk, a lot. He is not happy with his faith but he does not want to have issues. He mourns every time they commit atrocities. Because he said it that it is not needed. I don't know his type of faith in that religion and I am not going to ask because we all have to make a choice. He knows I am Christian and don't know my faith. So fair is fair.

    His sons are really good in basketball and will be very tall, 11 years old and 5'6", my daughter is 5'2" and only 10. His other son, an inch taller than my son at 7.

    My son is in mostly physics/scientists genre and not the most athletic but he likes the Muslim kids to play with and teaching him basketball better than I could have.

    Yes, the persecution of Muslims is the true injustice that happened today.

    I'm glad you have neighbors like that...back when I lived in California I was friends with a Sri Lankan couple...he was Muslim and she converted when they got married...both wonderful people...I think of them and other Muslims I know when responding to thethe demonizing an entire religious group the way he is doing in this thread...the other Muslims I know include whites of northern European ancestry who converted as adults...I have quite a few Muslim friends...have eaten at their homes...and consider myself lucky to have such friends

    I believe in many things. Rational consideration of facts. Judging individuals by their actions rather than stereotyping them as a group of terrorists or rapists or murders.
