    I just do not think the the majority of the population will think critically enough about this situation.  The fact they are muslim will be enough to condemn the whole population in a large portion of the country's eyes.

    There will not be a unified calling for peace from this but rather a fragmented calling for peace and blood and deportation and regulations and yada, yada, yada.  

    I was hoping for some kind of positive to be taken from this negative and it doesn't look like that is going to happen.  This just reinforces the stereotype that Muslims are terrorists and seemingly justifies all of the hate over the past 12 years.

      on the fact that they are Muslim (if, indeed, that is the case), then maybe they might conclude that it was a lie that we could create "safety" at home by applying belligerent foreign policy?  Doesn't it make a lie out of "we've gotta fight 'em over there..."?  I'm not subscribing to their thinking, but wondering if there's some point we can make to them about how they think...
