This might be interesting to those of us who have been watching the Boston area terrorist situation.

They are using the word "ethnic muslim" lately. Not sure why a muslim would be ethnic. I thought it
was a religion.

Thanks, Marianne.

shocked NOT good. But thanks for the info, Mary. If I remember right I believe Chechen terrorists did some pretty awful things in Russia a few years ago.

Media used the same "ethnic cleansing" label to describe the mass slaughter of Bosnian Muslims by the Serbian military, when they are all ethnic Europeans. You are right, in the case of Chechens their differences are not ethnic but religious. Like Christians, Muslims include all races.

Hi Marianne et alia,

There is a story afloat that even though these two guys and their family are from Chechnya, they are originally from Kyrgyzstan.

You have to wonder, what was going through these guy's heads?

As an aside to a dismal and shocking story, I wonder how many Americans could find Chechnya or Kyrgyzstan on a map? Bonus points awarded for spelling Kyrgyzstan correctly.

Its true and was a result of Russian forced migration of Chechnians under Stalin. They represented a real problem to Stalin so by forcing them elsewhere, he kind of "pulled the teeth" of the rebellian.

I studied Chechnya in college. I contacted by professor who taught me today, and he says the secular Chechen separatist movement is dead. All that remains is the fanatical jihadist movement there.

Obama thanks Putin for help in Boston

"President Obama thanked President Putin for those sentiments, and praised the close cooperation that the United States has received from Russia on counter-terrorism, including in the wake of the Boston attack," the statement said. "The two leaders agreed to continue our cooperation on counter-terrorism and security issues going forward."

That is very eerie, John. Thanks for posting your well researched answer from your professor.

The Uncle of the boys said he was told that an Armenian Muslim was influencing the older brother very much. And the
wrestling coach of the older brother said that several years ago, all the older brother began talking about was religion
and injustice.

It seems the older brother was schooled in jihad, but in this country.
