This morning, on the F train, I wondered if this was the beginning:

"KATMANDU, Nepal, Sept. 1 - Thousands of enraged Nepalese attacked a mosque and more than a hundred Muslim-owned businesses and homes here on Wednesday to protest the killing of 12 Nepalese workers by terrorists in Iraq. ... Protesters also attacked the offices of international airlines from Muslim countries, including the national carriers of Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Pakistan. They broke windows and dragged computers, furniture and papers into the street and set them ablaze. The homes and businesses of local Muslims were also attacked, according to witnesses."
