    I am in the terrorist attack column.
    If this had happened anywhere but here on US soil, on a military base, by military personnel, no one would even question if it was a terrorist attack.

    LARRY KUDLOW: In a hair-raising number, the Pew Research Center reports on a new poll that as many as 1 in 4 young American Muslims condone suicide bombings against civilians, at least sometimes. This kind of home-grown radicalism is bloodcurdling scary, and we have got to dig in and get to the bottom of this story. Joining us: Steve Emerson, NBC terrorism analyst and author of Jihad, Incorporated: A Guide to Militant Islam in the United States; and Edina Lekovic, communications director for the Muslim Public Affairs Council.

    I see nothing that leads me to believe it is a terrorist attack. In fact, I see more to lead me to say it most definitely isn't.

    Here's the actual study, for those who would rather see the facts as opposed to the spin.

    Findings:

    *Al Qaida's approval rating among American muslims is a whopping 5%.

    *"Overall, 8% of Muslim Americans say suicide bombings against civilian targets tactics are often (1%) or sometimes (7%) justified in the defense of Islam."

    *78% say suicide bombings are never justified.

    *"Seven percent of Muslims overall say that the [9/11] attacks were the result of a conspiracy involving the United States government or the Bush
    administration. Very small proportions hold others responsible, including individuals other than Muslims (1%),[or] Israel or Jewish interests (1%)" [ed note: That's a lower incidence of Trutherhood than for all Americans]

    *Most Muslims in the U.S. express optimism that a balanced solution to the Israeli- Palestinian conflict can be found. Indeed, 61% of Muslim Americans say that a way can be found for Israel to exist so that the rights and needs of the Palestinian people can be taken care of, compared with 16% who say that the rights and needs of Palestinians cannot be taken care of as long as Israel exists. In this regard, the opinions of U.S. Muslims closely resemble those expressed by the U.S. public as a whole [of which 67% say they can exist together while 15% say they cannot].

    *"A large majority of Muslim Americans believe that hard work pays off in this society. Fully 71% agree that most people who want to get ahead in the United States can make it if they are willing to work hard."

    *"The survey shows that although many Muslims are relative newcomers to the U.S., they are highly assimilated into American society. On balance, they believe that Muslims coming to the U.S. should try and adopt American customs, rather than trying to remain distinct from the larger society. And by nearly two-to-one (63%-32%) Muslim Americans do not see a conflict between being a devout Muslim and living in a modern society."

    Are you saying that because of the motivations behind his attack, it should be treated differently than if he were simply some crazy homeless guy who just went beserk?

    No, in the matter of law, murder is murder. (IMHO obviously)

    However I do believe his motivations are important as more people may be involved and more attacks could come or be prevented.
