Or a likelier scenario. He was a guy caught between two nations, two worlds.
He's American born, raised muslim in a Pakistani household, sees his country dropping bombs on muslims and feels like an outcast.
Went to Saudi Arabia to find himself a wife, maybe she indoctrinated him into extremism, or maybe he snapped and was looking for someone he could sway into doing this. We don't know at this point.
As a Pakistani American myself I can only offer conjecture.
At this point we need the people who knew him best to outline his timeline and give us a portrait of his background. Thus far his father and brother in-law are both absolutely shocked. His co-worker said Syed 'appeared to be living the American dream'.
Other co-workers say he was quiet and reserved.
I don't know, all I can say is that everybody needs to do better. This us vs them thing needs to stop because it's only making things worse. It's a self-fulfilling prophecy, the entire war on terror is, it only serves to create more terrorists. You can't go to other nations and massacre folks and expect people not to feel some type of way. Of course this type of **** is going to happen.
On the other side, muslims born in western nations need to realize that they're only going to make things worse for muslims just trying to live peacefully by losing their **** and going out and killing people. This is exactly what ISIS wants because they don't have the power to do it themselves. They probably had no idea the attack in France was going to happen but ****, they gladly took credit for it.
Everybody needs to chill the **** out. Seriously.
