    BOSTON — Security officials at Boston’s largest mosque requested police to guard its campus in the wake of Monday’s deadly explosions at the Boston Marathon, a sobering reminder that Muslims in the U.S. often face threats after alleged terrorist attacks.

    But if the pair of city police officers parked outside the mosque conveyed a message of heightened alert, workers inside the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center were too busy to notice. There, a small staff spent Tuesday morning working with religious leaders from various faiths across the city to launch an interfaith prayer event to memorialize the attack’s victims, while offering city and state officials all the resources the mosque could muster.

    “We’re Bostonians – we mourn with the city,” said Suhaib Webb, the Oklahoma-born imam who leads the congregation. “We stand in support with the city, with the victims. We’re hurt, equally shocked and equally pissed off.”

    An already-iconic photo of 8-year-old Martin Richard — the boy killed in Monday’s terror attack at the Boston Marathon — shows the child commemorating Trayvon Martin with a sign promoting peace, according to a NyDailyNews.com report.

    According to the report, Martin’s hand-made sign in the April 2012 photo, which says “No more hurting people” and “Peace,” was made as part of a school lesson on the killing of Trayvon, the 17-year-old from South Florida whose shooting in Sanford last year sparked international outcry.

  9. What is this EVIL among us that harbors so much hate to viciously kill and maim innocent people at a marathon race?! Only a beast without regard for ANYTHING would do such a thing.

      Evil indeed. Stay away from Fox News. Just had lunch with a friend, and the restaraunt had Fox on. They are airing old GS Bush video of him during 911 attacks, swearing to bring those who attacked NYC to justice. And comparing PBO to Bush’s address to the nation as him not being forceful enough. SMGDH,

      Who got Bin Laden, BITCHES?!!!
