Did you know that since 911 there have been over 21,000 terrorist attacks? How do you reckon Islam is the religion of peace when they are responsible for over 21,000 terrorist attacks just in the last 11 or so years?

First, there may have been over 21,000 terrorist attacks, but that doesn't mean that they were all committed by Muslims.

Second, someone who is Muslim may commit an act of violence that is utterly unrelated to his or her religion, and is motivated by something else entirely.

Third, how many of those terror attacks ended up killing other Muslims?

I would venture to say that many, many, many of the crimes committed in this country are committed by people that self-identify as Christians. Murders, carjacking, muggings, burglary, rape, etc.

But does that mean that you can't call Christianity a religion of peace when Christians are responsible for (x) number of crimes in the last year alone?

Right now, just about everything motive-related for the Boston Marathon bombings is speculation. Pure speculation.

So why is the rhetoric being pumped up again?
