Boston Muslim Terrorist Demanded Girlfriend, Cover Up, Convert to Islam


Motive still a giant incomprehensible mystery. But there are suspicions that he was one of those Tea Party NRA type of people. Certainly his peaceful tolerant religion notorious for its love of kites, puppies, infidels and women had nothing to do with it.

NPR has done some background on Tamerlan Tsarnaev who, it turns out, was surprisingly Muslim. (Not that NPR can say so.) His Islamic attitudes extended to his treatment of American women.

LAURA SULLIVAN, BYLINE: Well, these women were close friends and roommates of Tamerlan’s girlfriend, Katherine Russell, and they knew him for several years while they were in college. They described Tamerlan as very controlling and very manipulative of their friend. They say he was combative and angry. He would often call her names and insult her. He would call her a slut and a prostitute, and they remember fights that they would get into where he would fly into rages and sometimes throw furniture or throw things.

BLOCK: Have you confirmed that he was, in fact, arrested at one point for assault?

SULLIVAN: He was arrested for domestic assault and battery, but it was of a different woman.

We could have deported him once he was convicted of domestic abuse for the first time, but then he wouldn’t have the opportunity to enrich our tapestry of diversity and murder an 8-year-old boy.

They had an on-again, off-again relationship, Katherine Russell and Tamerlan, and that was at a different period in about 2009, but over the years that they knew Tamerlan, and they knew him through Katherine, they say that, you know, he had really changed a lot. That he had started off in 2007 sort of partying with them – he would smoke, and he would drink – and then sometime around 2008, they say he became very religious, and he stopped smoking, and he stopped drinking, and he stopped going out with them. And it was at that point that they say he demanded that Katherine also convert to Islam and cover herself.

This isn’t unusual. The secular Muslim can easily switch to become the religious Muslim. Sometimes the Muslim who seems secular is really religious.

The women who take up with these secular Muslim men discover that what they really want is a black burka and some black eyes in the proper Islamic tradition.

And then come the massacres of infidels.

BLOCK: Did these women talk about his political views, anything he might’ve said about that?

SULLIVAN: They said that when they first met him, he didn’t seem particular political in any way, but that starting in about 2008 and 2009, they describe it as having an extremist point of view, that he started talking about being angry with the government, and he said that he felt that Islam was under attack

NPR has actually managed to do an interview that put the word “Islam” in there twice. But again we really don’t know the motive. Our guess is he was probably angry because of Biden’s common sense gun laws.

Just ask David Axelrod.

    Another leftist spin is that he went all loopy after his "best friend", an American (last name Mess) was found murdered. But the murder took place in Sept 2011 (according to the above article Tamerlan was already radicalized by 2008-2009.) The cynic in me would like to know more about Tamerlan's whereabouts on the day his "best friend" was murdered.

    I've always wondered about especially American women who begin and continue relationships with Muslim men, and once they see or experience the dark side of Muslim men, why they stick with them and endure the abuse. It's basically a lack of self-respect, of self-esteem. They are fundamentally airheads. That's what Muslim men look for in women: airheadedness and submissivness and a quick and easy roll in the hay. It's the Muslim man's notion of conquest, and especially the conquest of infidel women. For them, it's a protracted rape, sanctioned by the Koran.

      The same reason ANY woman sticks with an abusive man. A true pro abuser, be they muslim or not, will ALWAYS come crawling back with apologies, gifts, and promises never to do it again. Lather, rinse, repeat. Before that even happens though, they got hoodwinked into believing that Islam respects and protects women (from male prying leering gaze), and that a Muslim man is showing "respect" to a woman if he 'lowers his gaze' (so he can stare at her bewbs?!).

      I think you raised a great question, but your answer is not so great, i think at heart most women look for dominant men, in that sense, Islamic jihadists are probably a lot more attractive than spineless apologetic americans.

      This is really the kind of question that should be handled by a PUA type who has a deeo understanding of women and their motivations.

  • Claire

    I am shocked that an educated American woman could allow herself to be so retrograde and weak-minded. I don't understand how she could allow this 'man' to continue to box and live an open active life whilst she dropped out of school and was basically cloistered in her parents house with his offspring. The unfairness and injustice of that situation is sickening. Then again, this whole affair is bizarre and repulsive.

      I'm not, really. A lot of North American women are ignorant and easily seduced by psychopathic charm. They then develop stockholm syndrome when the worm turns.

      • Looking4Sanity

        Once you've been seduced by liberalism, you become susceptible to all manner of irrationality and insanity. And, let's face it…the majority of North American females are liberal.

      I think you underestimate the power and draw that love and devotion can hold over a person. Everyone has undesirable traits, but most make up for it somehow.

      I also think many people discussing this young woman fail to realize that she has a child with Tsarnaev. This article does not mention it, but their daughter is believed to be about 3 years old. I can only imagine that ending an abusive relationship is made much more complicated and difficult with the addition of a child between the couple. This also indicates, given the time frame, that she may have dropped out from school due to the pregnancy and birth of her daughter.

      As a poster above mentions, many women DO look for dominance in the male, which is fundamentally wired into female anatomy. We've evolved to want the strongest, fastest, smartest, most aggressive and attractive mates – the "alpha" male. (Which explains in part why even the most arrogant men can generally find a girl to bring home at the end of the night.) Some woman are much more independent than others, and we can only assume that the older brother was quite cunning and persuasive. I know quite a few men that are the PUA type who have had dozens of girlfriends, and it really does seem that the bigger a jerk the guy is, the more interest women have in him.

      It's also a possibility – not fact, just speculation – that this young woman was discontent with her own religion and/or was in fact interested in and drawn to Islamic values.

      Unfortunately, until more information is released and those involved with the suspects make statements, we can only speculate. While it is easy for all of us – myself included – to do, we ought to avoid assuming and accusing.

        Even Camille Paglia long ago pointed out that American men, especially those more on the upper end of the income levels, have been wimpified by American women. That’s now a standard point of American culture, which has gotten to the extreme point of fathers being told what to do (and ridiculed) even by their children.

    The west is dealing with an Islamic cancer and its male adherents play out sexually repressed aggression in deadly ways, even if they are sexually active! In fact, "honor killings" are part of this fusion.

    One MUST understand their cultural dynamic (underpinned by Sharia Law) and how they are practically breast fed on misogyny and jihadi twisted fantasies. Female jihadists play out similar fantasies…but in the opposite direction. Islam & blood & its relationship to sex is explosive, and not in normal ways! This is the G-d's honest truth, and some of it can be explained within our highly researched policy paper –

    This sexual component is in no way comparable to Orthodox Judaism which precludes "negiyah" – touching the opposite sex – until marriage. In fact, within Judaism the woman is held in the highest esteem and this is where it's at, despite individual men who act otherwise. Therefore, understanding Islamic doctrine is more than key and excuses for their cultural "sensitivities" dare not be tolerated.

    Their sister told journalists that she didn’t know “what got into them”.

    Obama clearly didn’t know either as he described the Boston murders as “this tragedy”.

    Liberals still don’t get it and while they’re working it out many more will die.

    In a lighter vein the Chechen community of Boston have at least cleared up the controversy between Pamela Gellar and CAIR over the true meaning of “jihad”.

    There’s a good take on that in: “My Jihad” at:

    The vast majority of western converts to Islam are women. Probably the desire to find love and the "right man" trumps rationality. Men are typically more hostile towards the "other".

    • Raymond in DC

      Islam draws male converts too, but many are prisoners with minority backgrounds. It would appear that many with violent tendencies, envious of those more successful than they, find "comfort" in a faith that gives vent to envy and resentment, and provides a target and religious validation for those violent tendencies. One of the Tsarnaev relatives referred to the boys as "losers". Well, Islam told them Muslims were "the best of men".

  • Hazeltine

    Why the criticism that someone should “cover up”? That’s a far stretch from converting to Islam. Let’s not get all carried away and start defending the Kardashians as paragons of “freedom”. What’s next, selling Kim’s porno videos on the sidebar here because Muslims wouldn’t like it? Get a grip. I’m not defending Islam but I’m not about to think that means that we have to embrace the sleaziness of our pop culture.

    Where the hell is the fathers of these girls who date these islamic savages? I can tell you one thing, if that had been my daughter, there would have been a deep hole, a bag of lime, and a missing muslim on a milk carton. How we as Americans or Europeans for that matter let daughters or nieces date or get involved with these savages really tells us the state of things in our countries and mean while the muslims laugh in our faces for our perceived weakness.

    It seems that there are a lot of politicians in Mexico and USA receiving bribes for illegal businesses, we should better legalize what it has to be legalized and have more honest politicians, some that care about economy and people.
    Al parecer hay muchos politicos mexicanos y Americanos recibiendo dinero corrupto, mejor deberiamos legalizar lo que se puede legalizar para tener politicos más honestos que se preocupen por la gente y la economía

    Islam is of the devil. It is a death cult.
