I was trying hard to not respond, but this is am important point.  Everyone has 
freewill and the ability to act out of their own accord.  Just because someone 
is associated with a larger group does not imply that all members of any such 
group condone, support or would/have carry out similar acts.

Unfortunately, only in the U.S. does this seem to be a recognized 
differentiating factor.  So, we have issues around the world where other 
nations, races and bodies believe that if one will/shall all will/shall.

It will always be that way.  The sooner everyone recognizes it, and accepts that 
people have these feelings.  The easier it will be to help them understand that 
we are all individuals.  Forever, humans have tried to group and constrain based 
on various character traits and attributes.  It's what has fueled discrimination 
and wars for eons.

Someday, we can only hope, that things like the global communications will help 
these people, who seem to live in isolation, gain some insight into how limited 
their experiences are, and how much it restricts what they can truely experience 
and enjoy in life.
