Hate over hate only creates more hate

Can someone help me out here? An officer of the Army and a practicing Muslim, who's disgruntled because of prejudice against Muslims in society in general, kills his fellow soldiers so as to engender even more prejudice against Muslims by society in general?

What is wrong with this picture? There can be no justification for the actions of the major if he in fact is the shooter. Not only that, feeding on the environment of hatred is no way to improve race relations especially when your own group is the target of that hate. It only serves to marginalize the vast majority of the minority group who wants nothing but to live in peace.
The last thing we need now is a race war, but I get the impression incidents like what happened at Fort Hood, Texas yesterday is exactly what extremists on both the left and the right hope for to fan the flames.
