The Boston Bombers' Mosque

When other news media are giving you All Boston, All The Time, the general policy of this web site would be to back away from the Boston bombing story. We weren't there; we have nothing to add; we don't want to sit around rehashing everyone else's hash. However, we promised... highlight anything Muslims had to say for themselves along the lines of the last paragraph of the USA Today article.

"This kind of violence, terrorism, it's just completely contrary to the spirit of Islam," Kasmi said. "The words in the Quran say if anybody kills even a single human being without just cause, it's as if you've killed all of humanity."

Seriously, Muslim readers (if we have any): We all know that those aren't the words in the Quran, because they are in English. If any of you would like to share any Islamic studies along these lines that you've written in English, they would be welcome here. Please feel free to include either transliterations of Arabic words, or JPG graphics of the actual words as they appear.
