if U.S. bombings that kill innocent civilians in Afghanistan constitute an “act of terror” given the labelloing of the Boston Marathon bombing as “terrorism”. In the western world, white suspects are treated differently to suspects from minority groups. With a white American versus an Arab or Muslim American, we know from previous incidences that a white terrorist will be framed as an individual aberration whereas a culprit who is an Arab, Muslim or black American will vilify an entire...

if U.S. bombings that kill innocent civilians in Afghanistan constitute an “act of terror” given the labelloing of the Boston Marathon bombing as “terrorism”. In the western world, white suspects are treated differently to suspects from minority groups. With a white American versus an Arab or Muslim American, we know from previous incidences that a white terrorist will be framed as an individual aberration whereas a culprit who is an Arab, Muslim or black American will vilify an entire community of people.
Even the media regurgitate what the American government or Zionists say in the absence of facts. An outpouring of tweets and blog posts have also been circling the social sphere exposing a xenophobic undercurrent in the American response to the tragedy. Tweets with racist expletives blamed "sand monkeys" and "towel heads" for the attacks, while the word "Muslim" even trended on Twitter this week.
In conclusion, terrorism can never eradicate terrorism.

Hardships and ease are a trial for you. Everything Allah chooses for you; from good or evil, is for your benefit. Whatever occurred to you could not have missed you and what missed you could never have reached you. Rewards are only for those who are patient with the Decree of Allah.
Panic and impatience cannot prevent Allah’s Decree. Shakwah (complaining) is contradictory to Sabr (patience).

Christians are being killed by Muslims all over the world....and that's unfair also. Christians living in Muslims countries live a very difficult life....discriminated and attacked. So...I think we all are suffering violence.

It is just what the media wants u to think. Islam is the religion of the One who created the universe and that which it contains. He knows us more than we know ourselves. But only the wise knows this

Those who always carry out announced and un-annouced bombing and droning on foreign territories or even their own people at every slightest orchestrated opportunity.
We are gradually witnessing episodes of unguided reactions to series of international state terrorism versus growing pockets of faceless accused.
Finally, there is no gainsaying to conclude that no justice no peace.

There is nothing like extremist Muslim or terrorist, these are fabrications made by the west to maintain their position of colonizing the world with their corrupt system of capitalism and so called "democracy". It is unfortunate that there are those who call themselves "Muslims" and convinced with the propaganda of the west; just like I heard over an interview by Al-Jazeera with some Pakistani politicians & one of them claimed to be" a secular muslim" & was a better muslim than Mullah Omar...

Islam is not all about the five daily prayers but it is a complete way of life....it is the only religion that has the solution for humanity. Please lets put effort in understanding our deen to contend with the raging waves of falsehood thats caused corruption in this world.

The perpetrator of Boston marathon explosions and those who subscribe to that ideology are clearly enemies of Islam. You can't take a soul if you can give one. If Islam were to be a man-made religion it would have being dead centuries ago and in fact I would have disassociated my life from it completely without reservation.

Israel are legalized Terrorists as they blackmail America by their strategic position. This situation has developed and America are in a catch 22 situation. Because of Israel ,there's a world wide threat from Islamic Jihad radicals . America has little choice due this illegal Zionist country called Israel. Note, I said Zionist not Jewish. Zionism plays the Jewish Race ,as a card in their propaganda. Moreover the Islamic defense of either suicide bombings, beheading s, hangings , stoning etc...

Moreover the Islamic defense of either suicide bombings, beheading s, hangings , stoning etc and inhuman Religious strict laws are an inhuman abuse on their own people. Any who fear or suspect Islamic/Muslims as a whole are wrong but its quite obvious why.
