This is awful...
From what I have read on several sites, he was the founder of an organization/tv show that was geared toward enlightening people on the Muslim culture and to disband any negative notions that the general population has towards Muslims.
I still feel we should all be open minded and not look at people as a whole group but individually. This man clearly had personal issues that he needed addressed. His views and actions are definitely not to be understood as the views and actions of all Muslims.
The sad part here is, there are many people out there that are just too ignorant to separate this incident from the whole Muslim culture and this tragic event will only strengthen their racism or hatred toward Muslims.
Any other views out there?
