Repugnant Sunrise pisspot Andrew O’Keefe figured it all out: Â he’sÂ one of manyÂ currently avoiding words beginning with “I” and “M”.Â

Fairfax’sÂ Sun HeraldÂ editorialises on the Boston bombers:
Their mother saidÂ her elder son got involved in religionÂ about five years ago and believed her sons were controlled by someone else.
What religion that might be is never mentioned. Christianity?
TheÂ Sunday AgeÂ feels free to mention the bombers were Chechen, but not that they were Muslim:
Despite the cacophony of speculation and political-point scoring, nobody yet knows what drove Tamerlan Tsarnaev, a 26-year-oldÂ US citizen of Chechen descent, and his brother Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, to commit the atrocities of which they stand accused… By typecasting and marginalising cultures in the hunt for scapegoats, we risk exacerbating the very alienation that provides fertile ground for radicalisation.
Radicalising of whom? Buddhists?
I guess we’ve got to look in the mirror and askÂ what we have done to create angry young men like this.
There is an update:
TheÂ Sunday AgeÂ really can’t see a pattern here at all:
It should be noted that information that emerged in the hours after Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed in a police shootout early on FridayÂ didn’t fit into any neat profile, aside from the fact that the suspects were young adult males.
Nothing else in common with the bombers of Bail, London, New York, Boston, Beslan, Moscow and Madrid? Nothing in common with the underpants bomber, the shoe bomber, the dirty bomber? Nothing in common with the more than 20 Australians jailed for terrorism-related offences?
