    'Imam and Another Man Killed in Shooting Near Mosque in Queens"
    --'New York Times' (13 August 2016)

    According to some reports, some members of the mosque believe that
    the imam was the target of a 'hate crime' against Muslims.

    In the context of US politics, Donald Trump's response is awaited.

    So you figure it is just another round of the Islam wars? Where it was just fine that Bush Jr, the acting president ATT, when the real president was Cheney, attacked Iraq because of rumors of WOMD and you all see how well THAT turned out.

    If Cheney had not attacked Iraq we would not be in as much trouble today with terrorist attacks which would have still happened but not to the degree we see today.

    I lay all this on the feet of Cheney and his puppet Bush Jr.

    Bush Sr know full well not to attack Iraq during HIS war, knowing full well Iraq and Iran were at loggerheads and fighting each other would lower the risk of world wide conflict we have now. But Bush Jr, not having the skill or the ability to be a real leader, just let Cheney run the show and you can all see how well THAT turned out.

    I don't support any of those warmongerers. Tont Blair and Co.had a helping hand also. We can go way back to Vietnam if you want. Let's put the blame where it lies. The banksters and the military industrial complex. War makes a lot of money for some very wealthy people.

    That also deflects blame from Cheney who is directly responsible for the birth of ISIS.

    The Viet Nam war was also a lose lose war. We never should have gone there in the first place. The thought fostered by the west ATT was the domino effect, lose Vietnam and Cambodia and Laos and Thailand would soon follow.

    Paranoia was what drove the Vietnam war.

    By what? The murders of two American Muslims who have no known record of committing
    or inciting violence? Or the apparent condoning of their murders by anti-Muslim haters?

    Reportedly, the imam was carrying more than 1000 USD, which the murderer did not steal.
    So the murder evidently was not motivated by money.
