Good People Don't Blow Themselves Up

He cared for disabled children then went out and killed fellow citizens:


How could someone who cared for the neediest of fellow citizens do that by day while planning by night to strap a bomb on and kill himself and fellow innocent citizens? Well that's what you call a Terrorist I guess...................................

How about the family of Shehzed Tanweer 22, and what they are saying:
Bashir Ahmed, 65, the uncle of Shehzad Tanweer, said: "The family is shattered. This is a terrible thing." Mr Ahmed said it was hard for the family to accept their son had caused such loss of life, adding: "It wasn't him. It must have been forces behind him."

Forces behind him? How about forces in his life teaching him that he was British and to love his country and freedom? To respect and love the freedom that allowed him to live in a country that allowed for freedom of religion, no matter what religion it was? That's what Tanweer should have be taught by his family but obviously there was a breakdown somewhere along the line. His family failed miserably if someone was able to convince him that this was the right thing to do.

I don't get how someone could grow up in a mainsteam family and be considered a "good" person, and then do something like this. There are too many stories that come out from the families of terrorist like this, where they say they can't believe it and that the bomber was a good person.

Something is very wrong here, when we hear the same story over and over again.......
