Lutheran Extremists Launch Terrorist Attack in Moscow Airport

According to breaking news reports, there was a major suicide Terrorist attack carried out by Lutheran Extremists in Moscow’s Domodedovo airport, killing at least 33.

CNN say that the terrorist attack was “attributed by Russia's Investigative Committee to terrorists” – boy they’re really going out on a limb (no mention of the religious or political affiliation of attackers)

Fox are saying that the suicide attack may have been carried out by a “Suicide Bomber”, again no assumption as to possible affiliation of the attacker.

BBC is being more cautious, saying only that the suicide attack “may have been the work of a suicide bomber. Russia's chief investigator said the explosion was the work of terrorists.”

So far the only speculation from major news sources is that this suicide terrorist attack may have been carried out  by Suicide Bombers, and they may have been terrorists.

Given that no reports so far have mentioned religion or political affiliation of the attackers, I’m guessing that they were Lutheran, or possibly extremist Social Democrats. Unless of course they were environmentalists who have a history of supporting violent attacks.

I can’t think of any other religious group that could carry such an attack, and the media seem to be avoiding any assumptions.

Our prayers and thoughts go out to the casualties, wishing the wounded a speedy full recovery.

A few years ago we had "the Toronto 18". Eighteen Muslim kids who, in the name of Allah the all Merciful and gentle, wanted to bomb our Parliament and kidnap our Prime Minister.
But the first thing the police chief of Toronto did when they were arrested was caution anyone from thinking religion had anything to do with it.
Then there was the Muslim guy who, while shouting Allahu akhbar (God is a mouse, in Hebrew) shot up a bunch of US soldiers in a US base. but again, nothing to do with religion...

Don't know why you compared this case to some random people who happened to be Muslim.
Islam is a Religion of Peace, so unlikely that the bomber was a Muslim - what are the odds that this terrorist would also be Muslim, given the small Islamic population in Moscow.

I'm putting my money on Extremist Accountants, or possiby a radical Amish farmer.
