    but many people derive a lot of meaning from creating such divisions.

    I would put in the caveat that enthicity can be relevant to the extent that events are tied into history.  For example, had they been Palestinian, I'd ponder the connection to US policies.  As for Chechens, I'm not sure why the Boston Marathon would be considered a target in that historical context.  Seems pretty odd on the whole.

    Touch all that arises with a spirit of compassion
