I realize some people on the left feel a desperate need to defend Islam, but I don't get that comparison.
The WBC isn't violent. They just protest. They're an organized coherent group with a consistent message (albeit so hateful that's it now borders on self-parody). Additionally, there is no nationalist component to their speeches.
The Boston bombers are two kids with a half-baked plan. Islam played a role, but I think the older one had a history of violence and would've done something stupid at some point. Radical Islam was jst the nudge he needed.
