Anti-Muslim sentiment in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings

In the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings and the identification by at least one of the brothers that he was Muslim I'm not surprised to read this today in the Washington Post.

I knew trouble would start brewing when the media latched on to the Chetchen/Muslim angle. The discussion of the younger Tsaraev and his behaviors (smoking pot, partying) don't match with any sort of what I would consider religious behavior, especially Muslim behavior. It's a sad state of affairs that American Muslims have to say anything about this situation let alone apologize or distance themselves from it.

I hope that thinking, rational people will realize this has nothing to do with Islam. For those who aren't rational keep your racist, anti-Muslim crap to yourselves. Americans are Americans, Muslim or otherwise. We all share the same right to peace.
