A Random Act of Peace

The 18-year-old gunman who killed five people in a crowded Utah shopping mall was a Bosnian Muslim refugee who was prepared to kill many more, say investigators.

And I'm sure it had nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism or Islam, right? Nah.

A friend said Talovic was from the war-torn country of Bosnia and that the trauma he experienced while growing up may have led to him snapping for some reason.

Yes, because we all know that adherents of the Religion of Peaceniks never, ever kill out of obedience to Muhammed's teachings or their god's commands.

Every time a story like this pops up, we're told it isn't terrorism; it's just a fluke; a momentary lapse of reason, just like the jihad that began in the 600s A.D., and--like the Energizer Bunny--keeps going and going and going. . .
