“Allah is a very beautiful word for God. Shouldn't we all say that from now on we will name God Allah? [...] What does God care what we call him?”

Labels do get fuzzy and I would blame the Western Media and Christian scholars for making them fuzzy and funny.
The religion is Islam and the followers are Muslims. Initially, Muslims were called Mohammadan by ignorant scholars of Christianity, who were bigots.
And then came the term Islamist. lol! Another term came recently 'the militant Islam'.
The so-called extremists are still Muslims.
If Shamma had his way, he would have been far more dangerous than OBL. Thank God Almighty that Christianity was fully tamed after WWII.

Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis told CBS News on Sunday that based on the amount of weaponry the Tsarnaev brothers possessed, they were likely planning to carry out additional attacks after the Boston Marathon bombing.“I personally believe they were,” Davis said when asked whether the suspects were planning other attacks.“We have reason to believe … they were going to attack other individuals.”....

So far, all signs suggest the brothers acted alone.“All of the information I have is that they acted alone, these two individuals, the brothers,” Boston Mayor Thomas Menino told ABC.

Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel told reporters that he hasn’t seen any intelligence linking the brothers to any terrorist organization, although he emphasized it is still early in the investigation, reports CNN.

I find it curious you are upset that muslims may be using the OT considering the OT is a STOLEN version of the Jewish holybooks. Are you that BLIND that you can not acknowledge the irony? Or the flaw in your logic?
You are blind to the fact that the Scripture of the NT is a continuation of the Scripture of the OT.

If you eliminate the NT Scripture the religion of the Jews ended in 70AD with the destruction of the temple.

The religion of the Jews today is not the same religion as of the Israelites.

The Jews of today have no blood Altar to offer atonement for the life of the Jew.
For the Levitical priest hood ended in 70Ad.

Leviticus 5:11 "'If, however, they cannot afford two doves or two young pigeons, they are to bring as an offering for their sin a tenth of an ephah of the finest flour for a sin offering. They must not put olive oil or incense on it, because it is a sin offering.
----------
Leviticus 17:11 For the life of a creature is in the blood, and I have given it to you to make atonement for yourselves on the altar; it is the blood that makes atonement for one's life.

It was the High priest that offered an animal blood sacrifice on the Altar for the life of the Jews that no longer exist.

It is obvious from the OT Scripture that God saying for Jews to seek Him in their prayers includes all of Gods law, statute, and regulations.

Which cannot be achieved under the new Jewish religion of today.

But can be achieved under the New covenant of the NT.

The curious thing is that Mohammad himself acknowledged that Jesus was a miracle working prophet whose very conception was miraculous, YET Mohammad -who performed no miracles and whose conception was as usual as anyone else's- ranks above Jesus in "Allah's" scheme of things. Why? Because Islam is MOHAMMADANISM, period.

For their part, orthodox Jews reject Jesus as a demon possessed bastard, at best, while others, the moderate "reformed" Jews, are prepared to allow that Jesus taught good ethical precepts, even if this "God incarnate" crap still clings to him.

absolutely.

However, the working definition of terrorism these days is some type of organization.

What we have here is probably more like Columbine meets Terror Depot

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terrorism

Wiki has a long discussion about the definition of terrorism, that there is no international legal consensus due to the fact of its emotional connotations

However, it does cite this

Hoffman believes it is possible to identify some key characteristics of terrorism. He proposes that:

By distinguishing terrorists from other types of criminals and terrorism from other forms of crime, we come to appreciate that terrorism is :

1) ineluctably political in aims and motives
2) violent – or, equally important, threatens violence
3) designed to have far-reaching psychological repercussions beyond the immediate victim or target
4) conducted by an organization with an identifiable chain of command or conspiratorial cell structure (whose members wear no uniform or identifying insignia) and
5) perpetrated by a subnational group or non-state entity.[25]

Do you want purity in your religion? This is from James 1:27, "Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world." (NIV)

Looking after orphans and widows seems clear cut enough -don't let them die in the streets- but what is keeping oneself from being polluted by "the world?" Does it mean NOT reading Lady Chatterley's Lover, for instance? What might that mean to you?

Do you understand what the police are saying?
The Police are saying those Muslims are motivated to commit Murder by the teaching of the Quran rather than being motivated by some out side source.
In other words the are not connected to any other organization but merely being Muslim is their motivation to kill for the sake of Muhammad and their god Allah.
