    Take it up with the scholar reading from the Qu'ran and hadiths.

    It's there in black and white - the word of god. "Keep fighting the unbelievers until the day of judgement"
    Even if we take this literally, the Muslim has to decide the means of execution (bombing), the place of bombing (Boston Marathon), the time of bombing (Marathon) and the people to be killed. There are no blue prints to this found in Islam, the Muslim has to do this himself. He/She has to form an opinion, a motive, some form of rationale independently. In other words, intent to kill is independent of Islam as Islam provides no instructions. Islam is not the common denominator here and anyone with the ability to keep breathing cannot deny this.

    What are you blathering on about? I believe in secular humanism and Western democracy, and vigorously oppose beardy sky man adherents who go around bombing people, chopping off heads and generally killing anyone who looks a bit gay.

    Nice to see you're so enamoured with theocratic fascists.
    Comig from the person who dislikes Islam?

    1739: The police official says investigators are developing new leads and that authorities will carry out a "controlled explosion" soon.

    "Airstrike incoming"

    Wow.

    Developments: "Woman is texting her mother than she is being held by a man with a gun", "A person is being held there by gunpoint."

    Could be another false trail.

    yes but there's a clear difference between an opinion and complete nonsense.
