Behind Blue Eyes ... The Other Side of the Coin

لَا إِلٰهَ إِلَّا الله مُحَمَّدٌ رَسُولُ الله (Arabic)
There is no god but Allah, Muhammad 
is the messenger of God. (English)

The media grist:
  • The father ... struggling to believe his sons were behind the bombing
  • Mystery remains over motive
  • Brother was the driving force behind the attack
  •  Were Islamist militant groups involved?
As we read, listen to or view each headline we can only repel in shock and horror at this unspeakable cowardly act.
Through our western eyes this scenario is abjectly outrageous and just doesn't make any sense, does it?

None of the "Islamic Terrorist Acts" make any sense, do they? ... or do they just not make sense to us?

Oh to be a "fly on the wall" in Palestine, Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan, ....   I wonder how the "news" is played out after each act of terrorism?
  • Boston bomb suspects 'innocent', framed
  • Egyptian Cleric: Boston Bombings 'Message to America'
  • The Jews And The American Right Are Behind Boston Bombing, Just As They Were Behind 9/11
  • US harasses and intimidates Muslims 
Clearly the optics of the horror and gore play out completely differently for different audiences. 

My opinion (for what little it may be worth) is that we, in the "West", make our judgements based on the "Laws of Mankind" and that others have already passed their judgement based "Laws" that were given to a Prophet some 1400 years ago.
