I looks like they were Islamists. If so, I wonder if Obama will be able to bring himself to say the word. Or will he refer to them as non-secular?
Why would he have to refer to their religion in the first place? I suppose you also favoured the BBC referring to the IRA members as "Catholics" back when you were living in NI.
BTW, Canada's new Liberal Party leader and probable next Prime Minister has announced that whoever did the bombing is clearly "someone who feels marginalized from society and our approach has to be, where do these tensions come from? We must not emphasize a culture of fear and mistrust because that will even further marginalize those who feel they are enemies of society." Hugs all round, I guess.
the Canadian PM is spot on. If you only favour addressing the symptoms and not the causes, you're bound to live under constant attack.
