Muslim Boston Bomber Wanted to Die for Islam


Media still unclear as to motive, but boxing injuries and capitalism are suspected to be the cause. And so at the end of the long road from Tea Party terrorist protesting taxes, we come right back to where we started with Islamic terrorism.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev didn’t talk about wanting to die for Chechnya. If he had, he could have gone to join the fighting there. He wanted to die for Islam. And like so many Jihadists he got his wish, before an ACLU lawyer could step in.

Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev sent text messages to his mother as early as 2011 suggesting he was willing to die for Islam, the FBI told lawmakers this week according to two officials with knowledge of the Capitol Hill briefing.

Once again, it’s clear that the supposed radicalization was not brief or recent. Tamerlan had turned his thoughts to terrorism a while back, not just in the spring when a  young man’s fancies turn to love and a young Jihadist’s fancies turn to killing innocent people.

At the time when the FBI interviewed him, he was already a terrorist-in-waiting and he wasn’t shy about mentioning that or even broadcasting it.

The interesting question will be what he told the FBI agents who interviewed him. Tamerlan was not exactly subtle as incidents like these testify to. He reportedly tried to convert the FBI agent to Islam. Did the FBI agent ask him whether he was interested in participating in a Jihad and would Tamerlan have even lied about it if asked?

The Russians had repeatedly warned that Tamerlan was a threat. A look at his text messages would have confirmed it. Regular monitoring of social media would have given early warning to his plans to go Jihadist.

Tamerlan got his wish to die for Islam because the people who should have been paying attention to Muslim terrorists in this country, weren’t.

    I have no problem with any muslim who'd like to die for islam. What I take exception to is when they kill for islam. muslims will tell you that they love death as much as we love life, so I can see a win-win for everybody out of this.
    For the muslims that like to kill for islam, might I suggest that you start with muslims that are the worng style of muslim, or those not quite muslim enough. That way, you can "purify" your faith. If every muslim were to "honor" one other muslim per day, most of the worlds problems will vanish within a month.

    ( For that cause We decreed for the Children of Israel that whosoever killeth a human being for other than manslaughter or corruption in the earth, it shall be as if he had killed all mankind, and whoso saveth the life of one, it shall be as if he had saved the life of all mankind. Our messengers came unto them of old with clear proofs (of Allah's Sovereignty), but afterwards lo! many of them became prodigals in the earth.) From Quran 32 Surah Al-Maeda

      that's great, but what about the Quran and Hadith verses that demand killing the kuffar and the Jews wherever you find them?

      • kafir4life

        In the VERY NEXT passage, Mary Sue. What momo did there was put the part that was commanded of the Jews. Right after that (note that momo didn't use that one), muslims were given orders to behave like muslims behave.

      Good for you. Now do a Martin Luther and pin that to the mosque door in Mecca and start a reformation in islam the way Christianity did 700 years ago.

      momo – Note that the decree was for the Children of Israel.
      Ya forgot the next directive meant for the muslims.

      It is but a just recompense for those who make war on God and His apostle, and endeavour to spread corruption on earth, that they are being slain in great' numbers, or crucified in great numbers, or have, in l' result of their perverseness, their hands and feet cut off in great numbers, or are being [entirely] banished from [the face of] the earth: such is their ignominy in this world. But in the life to come [yet more] awesome suffering awaits them-

    There are over a Billion Modamned Asswanawipes in our World, if they stay away from me
    they will be near someone else, I feel bad for those someone elses if they are not armed and
    able to defend themselves. Wait a second here, did someone say they want to take away
    our arms and the 2nd Amendmemt doesn't count, we do not need more than ten rounds
    in a clip, lets divide ten into one billion three hundred million, seem a little skewed…….William

    You muslims can die for islam. I swear I don't have a problem with that as long as you don't kill anyone else but muslims.

    • SSmith

      I agree, they can die for allah whenever they want, only problem is their need to be die as "martyrs" to gain their 72 non- menstruating virgins in allah's heavenly wine- flooded brothel ( sigh). Being a Muslim martyr means slaughtering infidels for the moon god, as opposed to being killed for not renouncing their faith peacefully, which is the true meaning of the word.
      Islam= insanity.

    Thank you, kafir4life, for supplying that very next verse, Koran 5:33, which flows on from 5:32 (itself recycled from the Jewish Torah) and explains what happens to those who transgress that everlastingly elastic definition “making mischief in the land”.

    This is not funny old quaint stuff from “back then”. It is here and now. That verse, 5:33, in its correct classical Quraysh Arabic, is written out on a placard visible in the photograph of a man crucified in Yemen last year for “mischief in the land” (, etc.).
