    Arguing about the Crusades or the 2nd World War -- that's all a big distraction. In this context, I don't actually care whether Christians are nicer than Muslims. Bottom line: Our fellow citizens were killed by Islamic Supremacists, here in Boston. We have a duty to our fellow citizens -- those who died or were injured, and all our fellow citizens, because we all rely on each other to defend this nation -- not to take that lightly. If it turns out that the two brothers were just nuts who snapped, fine. But we need to find out what was going on and we need to think about the ideology that encouraged those brothers to kill people.

    To do anything different would be the same as arguing that we shouldn't protest against Trayvon Martin's killing because after all, George Zimmerman may've been a lone nut who just snapped. We and our fellow citizens deserve better than that.
