    What would help prevent attacks on Muslims in the wake of the bombings?
    Maybe less Muslims in the USA? Just saying
    Its now been proven, that most have Radical ideals!!!

    So less white guys in the states means less spree killings? They've done more damage in recent years than the bombers. Without 911 the bombers are way behind.

    I never said it did, did I?

    However, My view is........Not enough "G O O D" Muslims speak out against terrorism

    Why ? Do all whites do all they can to stop skinheads or KKK,you know they still exist and no one tries to stop them from spreading their hatred,in fact the USA gives them the right to say they hate and want to get rid of blacks and jews(other Americans)and yet they are protected by the constitution..........American Terrorist....

    @Rightwing the kkk is a small loudmouth bunch. This war we are with Muslims is world wide. I have seen to many good Muslims keep quiet and let guys walk into ambushes to trust any of them.

    @GvtMule Good call, because Extremists (you know not normal people) walk into regular churches and houses and broadcast their ambitions to total strangers. Part of training in Al Qaeda training camps is letting everyone of the faith know what you are doing, because it doesn't hamper your ability to function well at all!

    Do we have any evidence that Muslims are not aiding in investigations. Speaking from a local perspective and personal experience at work., Muslim associates have repeatedly stated that all "local" NY mosques have FBI informants in every prayer group. Sermons are recoded and names of attendee's are noted. a new face at prayers, I'm told, always-attracts attention. When asked why no Muslims speak out against terror the most common response is who speaks for us? We are a religion with no centralized church, made up of thousands of independent mosques, we're from different countries and several different sects. It's not like we're the Catholic Church. with the Pope or a Bishop of Canterbury
    Not justifying just relating work conversations.

    Yankees are rude in general. They will yell at stranger even with no provocation, as I've witnessed on more than one occassion while in Maryland and north of there. They are a high-strung bunch overall. I suspect incidents like this make it worse.

    @CATTLEPROD LMAO I love that Joizee/New Yawk accent like that. Seems it was a Hispanic gang that beat him up though. Probably more like "Orale vato! We goeeen tew keel ju!"

    Mary, please change the overly alarming title of this article. You make it sound like the woman was beaten and/or raped. The jerk never laid a finger on her. I would like to think that you are above sensational journalism.

    I was thinking the same thing. Dr. Noble is pretty good about responding to criticism for her articles and changing things as apropos, so I can see her responding to you.

    In the early days shortly after the Big Bang I took a criminal law class. There is a distinction between assault and battery. To meet the legal definition of "assault" the requirement is a person feel at risk for harm. "Battery" is the actual physical attack. So, yeah, this lady was assaulted.

    @DARSB - Older than dirt, I knew it.

    Don't pick nits with me, man. I still say using the word assault in the headline is sensationalism.:)

    "What would help prevent attacks on Muslims" Atheism. Then, at least, the bigots would have to scrounge for justifications for their self-aggrandizing misbehavior.

    'bigots would have to scrounge for justification.'

    "Let's explain bigotry to the families of the deceased."
    Oh that's simple. Two assholes who take their religion too seriously murdered your loved one. They were two evil sons of beaches who deserve the most terrible punishment one can imagine. Most Muslims do not support their behavior and neither do most Russians.

    Lol
    That does explain the perpetrators and the incident, quite colorfully.
    I was more interested in the bigotry portion of the program, however.

    As in all races and religions there are good and bad.It is totally wrong to judge all the same.One must respect the other until their actions prove otherwise.

    Reject the violent and anarchist tenets of your stone-aged belief structure, assimilate into 21st century civilized society and perhaps then you will be less ostracized.

    Muslims need to speak out against terrorism. Their usual deafening silence makes them look complicit. They need to police their own. Any other religion would loudly speak out against and condemn the killing of innocent women and kids.

    @Fishbone345 Do they? the first major response from them was boy i hope it wasn't a muslim not a condemning remark towards the guilty party.

    @marine1
    Sharia law makes it risky to speak against muslim extremists --with the stonings and decapitations. It's a rough and tumble religion-- not for the squeamish. But supposedly their are so many moderate (good) muslims (a billion?) they should be capable of overwhelming and rooting out the bad if they were so inclined.

    @Concerned_Cit Here here! Call out hypocrisy where it grows, and bring it into the light. UV rays are good for getting rid of it. Put the blame where it belongs, not on everyone else that is loosely associated with it.

    With all the clarity on this case, still some piece of vermin attacked a woman because of her religion. All I can say is I sure wish I had been there to see that. Because I would have swiftly and immediately stomped a hole in his ass. That will make a change because that is the only thing a racist fool understands.

    I am really sick of the discrimination against Muslims just because a very small percentage of the population are extremists. This irrational fear and hatred of races/religions is incredibly Un-American. WE are a nation of "differences". That's what makes us unique. That's what makes us strong. Our principals, traditions and culture are now and have always been based on any number of races, religions and nationalities. We celebrate our different cultures even though they are not our own. It's time to stop the prejudices, the assumptions, accusations and the assaults. A woman walking her baby?? Shameful.

    Education. If people would take the time to learn about things, it would sure limit the stupidity of people. Like killing people at a Sikh temple because you were too damn stupid to realize the difference between Sikh and Muslim.
    If people would learn the definition of "Extremist" and realize that by its very definition, means that that type of person doesn't associate with the regular (normal) mainstream religion, race, gender, etc... IE Fucktards.... Bombers aren't going to normal churches! They don't belong to Al Qaeda and go to a mosque that the general populace does.
    So sick of people confirming their arrogance and stupidity by associating people that don't associate.

    This has to be the most enlightened comment on this thread. Extremists in any group whether it be religious, non-religious, political or any other subject matter are a bane on society. Religious extremists create problems no matter what the religion. Atheist extremists want to force atheism on religions instead of being tolerant of others beliefs and create friction needlessly. Political extremists get nothing positive done as is represented by our current elected officials. We have a liberal extremist as a president trying to coordinate liberal extremist legislators in their battle with conservative extremist legislators with an end result of nothing good for the country. The thing all of these extremists don't seem to realize is that they are the problem. Religious extremists bomb the Boston marathon, other extremists attack innocent Muslims. It is a never ending cycle that can't be stopped because you can't fix stupid.

    It's gonna get worse. GW simmered people down after 9/11, and I think we have been a pretty tolerant bunch so far. But they are living among us, there are more here just waiting on orders. Either they police themselves or the backlash will keep getting bigger with each pipebomb or worse.

    I think you should look up the word tolerant because I don't think it means what you think it means.
    Nothing like an immoral and falsehood based war.

    @Cheenoguy Could it be you are just waiting on orders yourself? Your hatred for bush seems to just ooze out of every pore. If you maybe lost someone in the war, I am sorry, but if it is just venemous liberal talking points then I think you are a bit of a one trick pony, bush lied people died bush lied people died. How long can you keep that up? Obama lies all the time, but I never hear anything from you about HIS falsehoods. We went into iraq with the best intelligence available at the time. To me the muslim angle overrides national borders, the jihad is more important to them than anything else and if saddam was supplying terrorists with wmd then we needed to do something about it. I submit that GW and Cheney did such a good job killing and rounding up people who hated us that the bombing in boston was used because thats the best they got right now, people who were able to blend in and put together a bomb that was deadly, and reminded everyone they are still on thier mission, but with an ied and not a biological release or a nuke. BTW why hasnt barry emptied out gitmo like he PROMISED you when he was first elected? He LIED to you about that. Could it be he got in office, saw the files on these people and decided the best thing was to leave them right where they are? Im sure you dont mind though. You trust barry. If he is continuing what GW started, doesnt that mean GW was doing the right thing too? Venemous ultra liberals like yourself crack me up. Are you ever happy, about anything?

    @CATTLEPROD
    Actually our government KNEW that it was unlikely that Saddam had WMDs. They knew it and they gave the intel they knew to be bad to congress and to the American people.
    Why is Gitmo still open? Research that question and you will be surprised to find the answer and it has nothing to do with the prisoners.
    I have actually been critical of Obama's policies (which for the most part have been a continuation of policy) on several occasions. Most of his "lies" have in fact been truth that you don't like. His policies with Arab people's are a continuation of the same policy we have had since WW2 and he is getting the same negative results.
    Maybe the sheer number of terrorists killed by the military under both Bush and Obama is why we haven't had another 9-11, but that is a solution provided by the Afghan war not the Iraq war. The Iraq war has created more sympathy for the terrorists then anything else.
    I trust Barry? No, not really. I trust him more then Bush and I think he was better then Romney, but trust him? Hardly. He is owned by the plutocracy same as everyone with an R or D beside their name.

    @Cheenoguy Can you provide any facts that our govt. KNEW there were no WMD's? Other govt.s around the world used the same intel as we had. They voted for war even though they wouldnt put boots on the ground, thats our job, like it always is. I am sure the french sent some baguettes for breakfast though. What about the torture rooms that uday and qusay liked to hurt people in for thier own pleasure? Like it or not iraq has a democracy now, they have satellite tv and access to information same as you do. Give it another generation and it could be an example to the muslim world of an alternative to jihad. In the long run freedom is the best antidote to thier existence, which sucks so bad that heroin use is highest in iran, and people would rather blow themselves up than continue to live under a theocracy that encourages thier death, and hancuffs them to the steering wheel of thier car, to make sure they get the job done.(also threatening to kill the wife and kids if you dont do it). How'd you like to live under those conditions? You dont think the iraqi people deserve freedom?
