What "religion" did Timothy McVeigh profess to?
(man, this just keeps geting weirder and weirder....what, if the NEXT media-grabbing-headline is a perp who is Jewish, THEN what???)
Or let me put it another way that you may understand: It's the same thing as when a tea partier does something totally stupid. It justifies other people's negative judgments about the Tea Party.
Suspect in Times Square plot faces terror charges

Faisal Shahzad has admitted his role in the botched bombing attempt and is talking to investigators,
NEW YORK (AP) - A Pakistani-born U.S. citizen was hauled off a plane about to fly to the Middle East and will face terrorism charges in the failed attempt to explode a bomb-laden SUV in the heart of Times Square, authorities said Tuesday. One official said he claimed to be acting alone.
Faisal Shahzad has admitted his role in the botched bombing attempt and is talking to investigators, providing them with valuable information, Attorney General Eric Holder said.
The investigation stretched to Pakistan, where intelligence officials said several people had been detained in connection with the Times Square case.
Shahzad was on board a Dubai-bound flight that was taxiing away from the gate at Kennedy Airport late Monday when the plane was turned around and federal authorities took him into custody, law enforcement officials said. Federal officials had placed him on a "no-fly" list hours before his arrest.
Shahzad, scheduled to appear later Tuesday in federal court in Manhattan, will face terrorism and weapons of mass destruction charges, Holder said.

And just what kind of thing have tea partiers done that resemble anything like what these guys tried to do in New York?
I can't even believe that you tried to compare the two.
Are you that eaten up with hate?
I am extremely offended by this comparison,

This isn't 1942 and we aren't rounding up muslims and putting them into internment camps.
If people are looking to radically change our way of life (i.e. Terror) regardless of what race creed or religion they are, why are we afraid of Offending them?

Not sure exactly what religion, but he was a professed white supremist, and think a communist. He carried out the April 19th Okla. bombing because of what happened in Waco, Tx. on April 19th. He was scum like ALL people that kill innocents purposely.
Wasn't Hitler's Birthday on April 20th?

Yet I doubt the OP and others in this thread would feel quite as justified exercising their judgments toward Christianity as a whole.

The man is a Muslim. He happens to have been my neighbor when he lived in my town. The first house he abandoned, along with is family, a year ago before he moved in with his 'Girlfriend' is on the route I walk every night two blocks or so from my home! He kept to himself much of the time and only his next door neighbors seem to have known him. He told them he worked on Wall Street and was away from home much of the time!

And she's definitely not intelligent, but you focused on a completely benign comment and have completely misconstrued it. The reason she said it, is exactly BECAUSE there have been so many Muslim terrorist events lately.
Now the Pakistani-American is accused of trying to detonate a homemade car bomb in New York City's bustling Times Square. Authorities have brought terrorism and mass destruction charges against him, saying he has confessed to receiving explosives training in Pakistan.
Nice try at deflection, BTW.....
