TERROR IN BOSTON
Boston Bombing Suspect Exhibited Extremism at Local Mosque
Voice of America News reports: “Two ethnic Chechen brothers, suspected of the double bombings at the Boston marathon, attended a mosque in Cambridge Massachusetts. The bombs killed three and injured more than 170. The older brother, now deceased, is accused of being argumentative about his religion, critical of those who weren’t conservative Muslims.
The two bombing suspects are seen in the background of many pictures taken by spectators. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, who wore a white baseball cap on the day of the bombing, is recovering at a Boston hospital after gun battles with police. He faces the death penalty if convicted on a federal charge of using a weapon of mass destruction. His older brother, Tamerlan, who wore a black hat, was killed by police four days after the bombings.
Tamerlan attended Friday prayers and occasionally daily prayers at a mosque in Cambridge, outside of Boston. Mosque officials say that twice, he created a scene, arguing with the preachers – once about observing Thanksgiving and the U.S. Independence Day. But the more recent episode involved Martin Luther King Jr.
‘The person who was delivering the sermon, he made a sort of a parallel between how Martin Luther King had inspired people just like our Prophet Muhammad had inspired people, and he [Tamerlan] seemed to have been offended by that. He stood up and objected to it,’ recalled Anwar Kazmi, a mosque board member.
Mosque officials said Tamerlan called the preacher a ‘non believer’ who was ‘contaminating people’s minds.’ The Congregation shouted back to him to leave and he did.
A YouTube page, purported to be Tamerlan’s, has videos that allegedly promote jihad, or holy war…” (Evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived I Timothy 3:13. How far will such blasphemers go? They will give heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils I Timothy 4:1.)
Al-Qaeda Propagandist Called for Attacks on Sports Events
CNSNews.com reports: “Although no group has claimed responsibility for the deadly bomb blasts at the Boston Marathon, a leading al-Qaeda ideologue last year recommended that jihadists in America include sporting events in their list of prospective terror targets.
Writing in the online magazine of Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), Inspire, the terrorist known as Abu Musab al-Suri listed what he called the most important enemy targets.
Al-Suri contended that civilians should be targeted when responding to a brutal practice carried out by America and her allied forces.
This is done by targeting human crowds in order to inflict maximum human losses, he wrote. This is very easy since there are numerous such targets such as crowded sports arenas, annual social events, large international exhibitions, crowded market-places, skyscrapers, crowded buildings etc. ” (Sports events would give murderous Islamic terrorists maximum crowds to slaughter. Who is behind their wicked intentions? Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it John 8:44.)
Pressure-cooker bomb instructions in al-Qaeda magazine
USA Today reports: “Instructions to make bombs out of pressure cookers similar to those believed the source of two explosions in Boston were published two years ago in Inspire, an online magazine tied to al-Qaeda and the late U.S.-born cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, an analysis of the magazine shows.
The article, How to Make a Bomb in the Kitchen of Your Mom, by the AQ Chef instructed would-be bombers to glue shrapnel to the inside of a pressure cooker and then fill in the cooker with the inflammable material.
Would-be bombers, the article said, should use gloves to prevent their fingerprints from being found on the bomb fragments and to put you [sic] faith in Allah and pray for the success of your operation. ” (Anwar Al-Awlaki, an American convert to Islam created the al Qaeda magazine named Inspire. In a preceding article, he encouraged young Muslims to buy trucks, equip them with sharp blades located on the trucks front end and then mow down American pedestrians on Americas streets. What a spiritual event this would become for Muslims. Another 9/11. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them Ephesians 5:11.)
Supreme Leader Condemns U.S. Selfish, Irrational Approach to Terrorism
The Fars News Agency reports: “Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei condemned the recent bomb blast in Boston, but meantime slammed Washington for its selective and illogical attitude towards terrorism, saying the US keeps mum about the massacre of innocent Muslim nations, but it wants to set fire to the world when a bomb blasts on its soil.
In compliance with the logic of Islam, the Islamic Republic of Iran opposes and condemns any kind of explosion and killing of innocent people no matter it takes place in the United States’ Boston or in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria, Ayatollah Khamenei said in Tehran addressing a meeting with Iranian Army and Basij (volunteer forces) commanders and personnel on the threshold of the National Army Day.
But, he said, the attitude of America and others who allege to be supporters of human rights towards the killing of innocent people is contradictory and we, thus, believe that the United States and the front standing against the Islamic Republic of Iran are irrational.
Elaborating on the United States’ selfish and irrational approach to terrorism, Ayatollah Khamenei said despite the Americans’ claim about their opposition to the Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMDs), the United States’ drones massacre innocent people, children and women in Afghanistan and Pakistan, while the terrorists who are overtly or covertly supported by the US are killing people in Iraq and Syria.
What kind of logic is this that if children and women in Afghanistan and Pakistan are killed by Americans and if the terrorists supported by the US, the West and the Zionists cause catastrophes in Iraq and Syria, it wouldn’t matter, but if a blast takes place in the US or a western country, then the whole world should pay the price for it, he asked.
The Leader warned that the paradoxical, irrational and bullying behavior of the US and the West and their disrespect for human principles have pushed the western civilization towards demise ” (This article is a farce by Irans religious leader. He and Ahmadinejad advocate killing all Jews as soon as possible since their messiah Mahdi will not appear unless Iran heads up the slaughter of Gods Chosen People Deuteronomy 7:7, 8; Psalm 122:6.)
Muslim Brotherhood Links Boston Attack to Anti-Islam Conspiracy
Israel National News reports: “A leader of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood linked the Boston bombings to an anti-Islam conspiracy.
In a post on his personal Facebook page Muslim Brotherhood Vice President Essam el-Erian suggested the attack was part of a global plot to discredit Islam, citing violence in Mali, Syria, Somalia and other Muslim nations, The Hill reported.
Our sympathy with the families of the victims, and the American people do not stop us from reading into the grave incident, he wrote, according to an English translation.
This series of events began with the sending of French battalions to Mali in a war against organizations that are said to belong to Al-Qaeda. Bombings intensified in Syria in a suspicious manner that deviated from the path of the great Syrian revolution, and smear campaigns began, he continued. Violent explosions returned, rearing their ugly heads again in Iraq, targeting peaceful movements aiming for needed reform. After a reasonable calm in Somalia, the capital Mogadishu shook again, leading to lowered confidence in the new president and government.
A question that forces itself: Who disturbed democratic transformations, despite the difficult transition from despotism, corruption, poverty, hatred, and intolerance to freedom, justice tolerance, development, human dignity, and social justice?
The Freedom and Justice Party officially condemned the Boston attacks, saying they categorically rejected the intolerable attack, claiming it violated the principles of Islamic Sharia law ” (America, the big Satan is accused of an anti-Islam conspiracy. Question — Who is behind the 70,000 deaths in Syria as Shiites and Sunnis slaughter one another because of religious differences between two Muslim denominations? How different is Jesus and Christianity — By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another John 13:35 and Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren I John 3:16. See the next two reports.)
Taliban: ‘Wherever We Find Americans We Kill Them’
Israel National News reports: “While the Pakistani Taliban has denied involvement in the Boston marathon bombing, it has openly applauded the heinous attack, which killed three and injured over a hundred more.
Wherever we find Americans we will kill them, but we dont have any connection with the Boston explosions, Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) spokesman Ihsanullah Ihsan said, according to reports.
While no one has claimed responsibility for the attack, there has been increasing speculation that the Pakistani Taliban is to blame.
The terrorist group harbored Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan until the U.S. invasion of 2001. It claimed responsibility for a botched car bombing in New York’s Times Square in 2010, for which a Pakistani-American man, Faisal Shahzad, is serving a life sentence, as well as countless other attacks against American targets.
This was a heinous and cowardly act, and given what we now know took place, the FBI is investigating it as an act of terrorism, President Obama said following the attack. Any time bombs are used, it is a terrorist act ”
