Mosque that suspect attended hosts interfaith service

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. The Cambridge mosque that one of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects attended held an interfaith service Friday, during which leaders urged the community not to give into fear and mistrust.

The service at the Islamic Society of Boston mosque included reflections by a Muslim imam, Christian minister and Jewish rabbi.

Bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who was killed last week in a shootout with police, lived near the mosque and regularly attended for prayer.

But officials there have said they had no inkling of any violent, radical views.

1. That's a good thing.

It never sounded like this mosque was radical. At a service, a speaker was praising Martin Luther King. I don't believe that would happen at a radical mosque. An interfaith service there helps to emphasize that Tsarnaev was not radicalized at his mosque.

2. It isn't. It's just a little old muti-cultural mosque.

My understanding is they told him he didn't need to come back if he kept that crap up....I guess he heeded their words.

The mosque that handles Islamic burials in the greater Boston area has said that they won't make the arrangements to bury the guy. He wasn't "in good standing" when he died.

What irony if he ends up in potter's field.
