    I don't see anybody attempting to paint a whole religion as anything in this thread. And if you don't think his religion played a part in his actions you're simply fooling himself, meaning that, yes, his religion is relevant. Had he been a Buddhist I doubt this would have happened.

    I'm glad he was caught before he was able to do any damage.

    I am curious, did they find a Qu'ran on him? What would be the point be of mentioning he was Muslim?

    Let's see here...the article mentions that his name is Farooque Ahmed, his terrorist group of choice is al-Qaeda, he was discussing "jihad", and he went on the Hajj pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia...and you're mad that the article didn't explicitly label him a Muslim? You don't think that the average reader could figure that out?

    OK then...if those things aren't giveaways, what makes you so sure that he even IS a Muslim, since the article didn't come right out and say it? Maybe he's a Buddhist.

    From a Homeland Security and FBI perspective - it would be to validate any ties to al qaeda or other extremist muslim terror groups. As was stated before, not many extremist muslim groups have Christians, Buddists or Jews associated with them.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I guess we'll never know, as the poster of the OP has apparently fled.

    Looks like you were the first to mention it this time.

    I have no clue what you're talking about. I expressed no anger what so ever about the article or it's contents. That message was a warning to anyone and everyone who might be considering doing something foolish... like, you know... discussing the issue honestly.

    Thanks to progressives and their pals in the main stream media, any discussion that might offend is strictly "Verbotenen" in their PC world.

    He was actually born in Pakistan and became a naturalized American.

    He obviously had stronger emotional ties with his religion, and his homeland, than he did for the United States.

    A good candidate for the firing squad.

    So mentioning his obviously Muslim name and his connection to a Muslim group, and the fact that he went on the Hajj, one of the tenets of Islam, is somehow perfectly PC, but stating the ridiculously obvious fact that he is, in fact, a Muslim is something you think the MSM believes to be PC?
