Criminal acts intended or calculated to provoke a state of terror in the general public, a group of persons or particular persons for political purposes are in any circumstance unjustifiable, whatever the considerations of a political, philosophical, ideological, racial, ethnic, religious or any other nature that may be invoked to justify them.

I know a more efficient method to stop terrorism:
1. Stop bombing the children of nations that can't fight back.
2. A more humane foreign politicy
3. No invasion under the pretext of enforcing democracy but stealing oil.

Times have changed, society as it was has long disappeared, so it is inevitable that a more violent culture has been brought up through the exposure of Films, T.V. Shows, Magazines, Music and this list goes on. Therefore i assume it is up to everyone to make sure that we live a life in a secure environment how ever possible. Obviously extreme care needs to be taken as to not over react and that will only happen if people are educated. As the old saying goes "knowledge is power and power is knowledge"
Tampa police: Marine reservist attacked Greek priest he mistook for terrorist
TAMPA — Marine reservist Jasen Bruce was getting clothes out of the trunk of his car Monday evening when a bearded man in a robe approached him. That man, a Greek Orthodox priest named Father Alexios Marakis, speaks little English and was lost, police said. He wanted directions. What the priest got instead, police say, was a tire iron to the head. Then he was chased for three blocks and pinned to the ground — as the Marine kept a 911 operator on the phone, saying he had captured a terrorist.
