    Yeup, they are literally Caucasian, just as much as Bosnian or Kosovar Muslims are.

    Nope, they are Dagistani\Chechen. Dagistan is north of Chechnya which is north of Armenia and Azerbaijan. While a Muslim territory, the area is no where close to the Middle East. IOW, they aren't Arabs or Turks.

    They are Caucasian but they do not think like Europeans because they are militant Islamic so their culture is Arabic Moslem.

    I suggest you take a look at the history of the area. Islam came via the Ottoman Turkish conquest. But, then most of that part of the world isn't part of Western European civilization even the Orthodox Christian.

    It's amazing that the original article was published anyway. Can you imagine if they had published an article that said that they hoped the perps were black or jewish? It never would have seen the light of day. The original writer wanted to be able to blame some gun toting, white supremicist faction so they could advance their own political agenda.

    Back to OP, these Islamic terrorists were certainly not white in the manner that the original author intended. The argument is designed to ignore that they were Islamic terrorists.

    EXACTLY.

    Paul - seriously? Did you not give this some critical thought? The Salon article wanted the perpetrators to be white Americans because of the "additional tarnish to islam" if it turned out they were muslim. Well, it turned out they were muslim. So now they're going to try to spin it as "yeah, but they're white"???

    What does the amount of melanin in one's skin have to do with one's religion? The gene pool since Shem, Ham and Japheth has been mixed by victorious armies, explorers, followers of Allah, etal. There is no such thing as a pure race, regardless of all the bigotry overt and covert.

    We need some serious repentance about our racial bigotry folks.

    Now what?

    Even so, come Lord Jesus.

    3rd option is missing.
    I don't care. If they did it, prove it (I think they did) then make them disappear, at least the 1 that is left. Do not give him a pass, send his bum to gitmo and let him rot as a terrorist.
    Whether the guy(s) behind it were white purple or polka dotted people are dead and maimed. The perpetrators color is irrelevant. As is their religion and reasons for the bombing.

    Agreed that the area is not part of Western civilization--I keep hoping that the Russians will come to their senses and rejoin European culture totally. As for Islam, I think that it should be contained as communism was and that we should withdraw economically from Islamic nations. I was merely trying to say that the bombers are white, Caucasians, but stuck in an Arabic religion, a temple of doom. There are no human rights except in Christianity.

    Russian culture is based on Byzantine influences, along with periodic later conquests by the Mongols and Tartars. So, at its core. its never been a part of Western European culture., The rest I agree with you on.

    Yes. They are VERY VERY white.

    Obama actually referred to them as "terrorists".
    That is why I figured they were white....he used the word "terrorists".

    The liberals were hoping they were white Christian gun owners that carried pocket constitutions around in their hip pockets. Boy are they disappointed.

    Not to worry though Big Sis is still watching us real close.
