Well, it's kind of long to be a caption, but it is here

My local paper had another picture of what I think was the same guy and it identified him as one of the suspects brothers.

If you think this is bad, you should see what he had to do when he wanted to count to three.

Classic!

I knew Bert was evil.
Oscar, I'm not surprised.
But Elmo?

I guess it's safe to assume he is muslim because he looks muslim
Unless he refused to give his name but was more than happy to reveal his religious persuasion

I know a guy who looks almost exactly like this even kinda dresses that way(thought it was him for a moment)
and he is most assuredly not muslim
and he most assuredly WILL flip off anyone who takes a picture of him.
Seems presumptuous,seems to perpetuate a stereotype, but Oh Well.
It's all in fun right?

Sylvain, I quote from the Yahoo news item:

"A young Muslim man, who refused to give his name, shows his feelings toward the media outside the Federal Court House in Buffalo, New York September 18, 2002 where he sat to show his support for the six local suspected al-Qaida supporters who appeared inside the court.

Thanks for jumping to conclusions, though. You may take your seat now.

The tourist Guy strikes again!

Yo, G, I-sieeeede.

yes, I understand.
However, and this is of course not your fault, Yahoo doesn't say that the man says he is a muslim, nor does he say that he is sitting there in support of the suspect. It might be the case, but it might not. They don't quote him as saying anything except refusing to give his name.
He probably is both, but there's nt enough info in the article for me to jump to conclusions.
Had the article said "a young man who says he is a muslim and that he is sitting here to support the suspects".........
It is Yahoo that is assuming, not you.

Sorry about the double-post. It gave me a server error the first time around, and didn't show up when I refreshed.
