Letter: Blending in
The terrorists responsible for the horror in Boston accomplished their goals: they killed, maimed, traumatized, and effectively paralyzed the City of Boston. What scares me is that these entities managed to blend in seamlessly with the rest of surrounding society, and were evidently well known by friends, classmates, etc. I think this “blending in” will be used more and more as a tool to play on the trust of surrounding communities, unfortunately, especially by radicalized younger Moslems who appear to espouse “world jihad.” I hope I’m wrong, I really do. Citizens should not be cowering in fear in their own homes. There is no justification that can be found for this senseless, heinous act.
