    Well, at least this radical member of "the religion of peace" was too incompetent to do any real damage.

    • Attempted suicide bombing
    • Pipe bomb detonated prematurely.
    • "Low-tech device" -- NY Governor

    Our Dipshit-in-Chief's ill-conceived Jerusalem decision has spawned this act of retribution on our soil. He has made the world less safe for all of us.

    We are lucky that this terrorist was an amateur and few were hurt by his actions.

    How can you blame trump for this? People kill people for no good reason most of the time.

    This post...smdh

    Said action is retribution??? For declaring something that the Palestinians already know to be Israeli...Why does a declaration result in a violent response?

    I'll be upfront and state that any retaliation in the form of attacking civilians because the terrorists were upset is not a valid excuse for the terrorists and we shouldn't place the blame of these terror attacks on Trump just because their Jimmie's were rustled.

    The acts of terrorists who murder civilians or attempt to murder civilians is squarly on them and no one else. Trump ain't helping but the blame should be 100% on the terrorists.

    I feel rather uncomfortable placing blame on Trump for the actions of terrorists because they were offended by Trump's decision.

    100% blame lies with the individuals who carried out this attack and those who enabled or encouraged him. Trump does not fall into any of that. What Trump is guilty of is many things, but not this.

    Those who try to blame Trump are the same as those who try to blame Islam.
