Sad that anyone would do this

But it's different when someone without a stake in your country targets you. I remember when the Oklahoma City bombing happened, and everyone was so sure that it was terror from the Middle East, but I thought it was probably a home-grown extremists, which we had in plenty. That said, it was still shocking to realise that someone from the US could hate America and have such a warped view of their fellow people as to plan and execute such an act. Hate knows no boundaries, unfortunately.

I only hope there is no backlash against Muslims or Pakistanis in the UK because of this, since the men were apparently of that ethnicity, despite being born and raised in Britain. This is a time for everyone to come together to fight such flawed and tragic prejudices as those that led to the bombings in London.
