The Boston Bombers: By Sheer Coincidence....MUSLIM !!!
What is with the media's dangerous silence on Islam. They behaved so politely after the Boston Bombings. None jumped to the correct conclusion: these terrorists were yet again Muslim. In fact, even after the scumbag brothers Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, of Chechen origin, were identified and found to be - surprise, surprise - Muslim and still pretended not to notice or think it relevant. Muslim? Really? ''What an amazing coincidence....but there is still no clear motive for the attack.'' Really? I don't see Buddhists, Jews, Hindus, Christians or Mormons blowing anything up, but don't mention the ''M'' word. Don't discuss something that's sick in a strand of Muslim culture -- the rage of failure, the exhortations of hate and the licence given to kill. Always turn it back on the ''unjust'' West. ''It's all America's fault because these kids were brought up in America, not (the dungheap called) Chehnya,'' says the president of Chehnya, Ramzan Kadyrov.
Indeed. Here's what wicked America did to these men, Chechens actually raised in Dagestan. It let them both into the country. A federal official said the younger brother arrived on a tourist visa in the U.S. on July 1, 2002, at age 8. After seeking asylum, he was granted citizenship on September 11, 2012. It let Tamerlan study engineering at Bunker Hill Community College. It offered his younger brother a place at the University of Massachusetts and even gave him a $2,500 scholarship from the city of Cambridge. And when Tamerlan beat up his girlfriend three years ago, America didn't throw him out. He was on a Green Card, but never the less could have been deported after the domestic violence conviction. That means the Obama administration missed an opportunity to remove him but evidently didn't feel ''his being very religious'' represented a big enough threat.
The Russian intelligence agency alerted the FBI before Tamerlan was expected to visit Chechnya and relatives in Dagestan (Al Qaeda hotbeds) in 2011 and stated ''he was a follower of radical Islam''. After an investigation the FBI said it found nothing of concern. When Tamerlam returned after spenting six months in Dagestan, he instilled his newly energized ideology into his younger brother. Both brothers became open about their devotion to Islam and Tamerlan's Web postings suggested an attraction to radicalism. He posted a video to his YouTube playlist extolling an extremist religious prophecy associated with Al Qaeda. Yet, the FBI never came back for a second evaluation. The YouTube page includes religious videos, including one of (photo left) Feiz Mohammad, a fundamentalist Australian hate-preacher. This pile-of-camel-dung rails against the evils of Harry Potter, says women in ''suggestive'' attire deserve to get raped and children should be raised to follow jihad and become martyrs to Islam. One playlist includes a video dedicated to the prophecy of the Black Banners of Khurasan, which is embraced by Islamic extremists, particularly Al Qaeda. The prophesy states that an invincible army will come from the region of Khurasan in central Asia to help Imam Mehdi to establish a new Caliphate at the Kaaba in Mecca.
Still, as investigators try to assess the brothers' journey to Muslim-style terrorism, search for ties to militant groups and draw lessons for preventing attacks, they will be thinking of some notable cases in which longtime American residents with no history of violence turned to terrorism; the plot to blow up the New York subway in 2009, the Fort Hood shootings the same year and the failed Times Square bombing of 2010, among others. ''I think there's often a sense of divided loyalties in these cases where Americans turn to violent jihad -- are you American first or are you Muslim first? And also of proving yourself as a man of action,'' says Brian Fishman, who studies terrorism at the New America Foundation in Washington.
Akbar Ahmed, the chairman of Islamic studies at the American University, also in Washington, described such men: ''They are American, but not quite American, young men caught between life in America and loyalty to fellow Muslims in a distant homeland. Turning to violence is partly a way of settling the puzzle of their identity.'' His new book, The Thistle and the Drone: How America's War on Terrorism Became a War on Tribal Islam, examines how tribal codes have shaped the reaction to American counterterrorism strikes. ''They don't really know the old country,'' Professor Ahmed said of young immigrants attracted to jihad, ''but they don't fit in to the new country. Add feelings of guilt that they are enjoying a comfortable life in the States while their supposed brothers and sisters suffer in a distant land and an element of personal estrangement -- say, Tamerlan's statement in an interview long before the attack that after five years in the U.S., ' I don't have a single American friend ' -- and it becomes a combustible mix.''
The Way I See It....I'm sick of being told that Islam is a ''Religion of Peace'', when everyday I can read stories of Muslim men killing their sisters, wives and daughters for their family ''honour''; of Muslims rioting over some slight offense; Muslims burning down schools for girls; Muslims murdering Christians and Jews because they aren't ''believers''; Muslims stoning teenage rape victims to death for ''adultery''; Muslims mutilating the genitals of little girls; all in the name of Allah, because Qur'an and Sharia law tells them to.
On the other hand I see assimilation isn't working its usual magic among many of the young Lebanese Australians. Or should we start referring to them simply as Lebanese in Australia? The head of Australia's domestic intelligence agency has confirmed that hundreds of Australian-Lebanese men have have joined the fighting in Syria. ''We are also concerned that young Australians go overseas and become quite severly radicalised in the extremist Al Qaeda-type doctrines.'' ASIO director general David Irvine said, ''It's people who develop the sort of skills that terrorists can use and more importantly the commitment that drives terrorism, that remains a concern for us.'' He says most of them were born in Australia or came to Australia at a young age. It good to see these scum leaving the country...in a way. We can only hope that the membership in those Lebo-Gangs terrorising Sydney must have dropped a bit by now.
NOTE: The sign the child's holding up reads Behead Those Who Insult The Prophet. How nice!!!
UPDATE: Tamerlan's former brother-in-law points to the Boston bomber's possible motivation:
''He was angry that the world pictures Islam as a violent religion.''
Glad we cleared up that little misconception. He obviously didn't have a sense of irony.
Meanwhile the source of the killers bomb-making knowledge seems to have been accurate: They learned to make these pressure-cooker bombs from Inspire, the online Al Qaeda magazine site.
