Profiling at it’s finest: Witnesses from the attack confirm that the “Saudi national” taken for “questioning” was tackled by a bystander as was trying to escape the blast.
It’s disgusting to read such ignorant and hateful comments on Youtube videos of the bombing. Here’s one:
EVERYONE, TAKE A QURAN, AND PISS ON IT, IN PROTEST OF THIS MUSLIM ATTACK ON INNOCENT PEOPLE, AND FOR THE OTHER MUSLIM SCUM ATTACKS ON FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND FREEDOM FROM RELIGION !! PISS ON THE QURAN !! FUCK ISLAM !! ISLAM IS NOT A RACE !! FUCK ISLAM !! –MetalTerror666
As a country with over 2 million Muslims living in it, I think it’s safe to say that Islam isn’t the problem. A terrorist can be anyone. Unfortunately, people kill each other: Americans kill Americans, Muslims kill Muslims. Hell, we’re even called terrorists by people around the world. In short, the United States has been overly concerned with the Middle East. (I’m not going into details.)
What we should be concerned with is our own country. With a recent attempt to poison President Obama with a ricin-filled letter, it’s quite obvious that our country is at unrest, confused as to where it will go next. While America attempts to spread the peace and prosperity across the globe, it too often forgets to do the same right here at home.
