Jihad in Boston

Robert Spencer is the director of Jihad Watch and author of the New York Times bestsellers The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades) and The Truth About Muhammad. His latest book, Arab Winter Comes to America: The Truth About the War We're In, is now available.


jihadIt has now been revealed that the Boston Marathon bombers were two Muslims from southern Russia near Chechnya: Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who was killed in a firefight with Massachusetts police early this morning, and his brother Dzhokhar, who as of this writing is still at large.

As more and more material comes to light about the pair, their motivations become clear. On a Russian-language social media page, Dzhokhar features a drawing of a bomb under the heading “send a gift,” and just above links to sites about Islam. Tamerlan’s YouTube page features two videos by Sheikh Feiz Mohammed. According to a report published in The Australian in January 2007, in a video that came to the attention of authorities at the time, Mohammed “urges Muslims to kill the enemies of Islam and praises martyrs with a violent interpretation of jihad.”

Tamerlan also says, “I’m very religious.” He notes that he does not drink alcohol because Allah forbids it: “God said no alcohol,” and that his Italian girlfriend has converted to Islam. Even his name indicates the world from which he comes: Tamerlan Tsarnaev is apparently named for the Muslim warrior Tamerlane. Andrew Bostom wrote in 2005 that “Osama bin Laden was far from the first jihadist to kill infidels as an expression of religious piety….Osama lacks both Tamerlane’s sophisticated (for his time) military forces and his brilliance as a strategist. But both are or were pious Muslims who paid homage to religious leaders, and both had the goal of making jihad a global force.”

Combine all that with the fact that the bombs were similar to IED’s that jihadis use in Afghanistan and Iraq, and that Faisal Shahzad, who tried to set off a jihad car bomb in Times Square jihad car bomber, used a similar bomb, and that instructions for making such a bomb have been published in al-Qaeda’s Inspire magazine, and the motivations of the Tsarnaev brothers are abundantly clear. It is increasingly likely also that they were tied in somehow to the international jihad network, as is indicated by how they fought off Boston police early on Friday with military-grade explosives – where did they get those? And where did they get the military training that they reportedly have, and displayed in several ways during the fight Friday morning?

Yet despite all this, the mainstream media continues to obfuscate the truth. NBC doesn’t see fit to mention any of the brothers’ connections to Islam in their profile of them. CNN warns that “it should not be assumed that either brother was radicalized because of their Chechen origins.” And this, of course, follows days of speculation about how the bombings appeared to be the work of “right-wing extremists,” “Tea Partiers,” and the like. According to Victor Medina in the Examiner, “Esquire Magazine’s Charles P. Pierce attempted to link the bombings to right wing extremists similar to Timothy McVeigh, the Oklahoma City bomber. In another, CNN national security analyst Peter Bergen speculated that the type of bomb device could link it to right wing extremist groups.” Salon hoped that the bomber would turn out to be a “white American.”

Will Pierce, Bergen, and all the others who offered similar analyses apologize now? They almost certainly will not – and even worse, they will not be held accountable. No matter how often mainstream analysts are wrong, they never get questioned or jettisoned.

But in one sense, they were right: the bombers were indeed white, if not American. That demonstrates once and for all the vacuity of the mainstream media and Islamic supremacist claim that opposing jihad and Islamic supremacism is “racism.” Islam is not a race, and the massacre of innocent civilians is not a race. Opposing jihad is not racism, but the defense of freedom. The Tsarnaev brothers have confirmed that. However, nothing is more certain than that next week, Islamic supremacist and Leftist spokesmen will be featured on NBC and CNN decrying “racism” and an imagined “backlash” against innocent Muslims, which is always a feature of mainstream media coverage after a jihad attack, even though the “backlash” itself never actually materializes.

And there will be no accountability for that nonsense, either. Nowadays, it’s much more of a path to success to be politically correct than to be correct.

    Stephanopolous on ABC on the day of the bombing was constantly talking about Waco and McVeigh. He never said the word "Muslim". Aiding him in this liberal-bigot stance was their "expert" ex-FBI agent Brad Garrett, who even ridiculously brought up Hitler's birthday being in April. Today, Garrett and Stephanopolous still can't bring themselves to use the word "Islam", instead saying "philosophical extremism", and also the word "spiritual" instead of religious. You can bet if they were Christians then all we'd hear is "religious extremists" over and over. There is hardly anyone more bigoted than the liberal trash in the media, whether reporters or anchors or "expert commentators".

    To be fair, Diane Sawyer has been even handed.

    • Toni_Pereira

      If they were Christians, not only they would constantly highlight it but would put the Pope, the WBC,David Duke and the Arcebishop of Cantebury in the same bag(somewhere, the Mossad could be pulling the strings…)

    • BS77

      This morning Stephanopolous was still not saying much about Islamic terror…….the liberals cannot handle the truth. It's all PC fluff and excuses….appeasement and evasiveness, when the reality is staring them in the face.

    • defcon 4

      I'd like to see more lying liberals die at the hands of islamofascist terrorism. After all, shouldn't they get to experience the wonderful tolerance and inter-faith cooperation that islam is bringing to the US as well?

    • Michael Durham

      Stephanopolous , ABC, Richard Clarke (also ABC), and "expert" ex-FBI agent Brad Garrett all essentially work to conceal the nature of America's enemies.

      Who attempts to conceal the nature of America's enemies? America's enemies. Who benefits from it? America's enemies.

      These Leftist @-holes and their Islamoterrorist allies simply happen to be domestic enemies, infesting U.S. soil.

    To avenge the deaths of these two terrorists, other Chechnyans will now be planning to commit more murders. I think that the father of the two killers has also said that if son #2 is killed by police, then there "will be hell to pay".

    • MeSoHornish

      The father of suspected Boston Marathon bomber called on his son today to give up peacefully, but warned the U.S. that if his son is killed "all hell will break loose."

    • rodger the dodger

      So, killing one son – OK
      Killing two sons – that’s the tipping point

      Is that what he’s saying?!

      So there we all were last night — about 10:30 (EDT) — watching the leaders and head law enforcement officials do their wrap up press conference, making sure that all local, state and federal agencies got both a say and credit for their contributions. The citizens of Boston were also thanked for their endurance of the "lock down" and the vigilance that led to the final tip that facilitated the 19 year old's apprehension.

      Then in the lower right appears a box showing an unoccupied White House podium. Well, I thought, at least he's not stepping on the Massachusetts "leaders". It's 11:02pm and it must have been a strain to interject himself in a local victory at such a late hour, but I guess it was irresistible. Can't have the country go to bed without a last word from the last person who had anything to do with the event. Must have that "news" op. We were then subjected to a too long lecture about how great America is because of our welcoming nature and diiiiiiveeeersity. Three times — at my count — the word diiiiiveeeersity was mentioned linked to Americas "greatness" and how that needed to CONTINUE. Do I hear anything that might relate to, uh, so-called "Comprehensive Immigration Reform"?

      Well, at the close of the lecture, I was left with one nagging question: Mr. President, if you keep saying how "great" America is, why do you want to transform it? Huh?

  • longhunter

    I'm sure there will be also much soul searching by the left about what was it that we did to cause such nice young boys to become radicalized terrorists. I have the answer. All those liberal Bostonians voting for Barack Obama and his failed farce of a foreign policy and his lies about having AQ on the run. That is what resulted in this horrible act of terrorism on U.S. soil. Welcome to Israel, USA. Get used to it because it will continue now as long as we follow the failed presidency of Barack Obama.

  • Poupic

    Well this Islamophobic answer to those who said that it could be domestic terror. I answered that it was true but narrowing the terror to domestic Islamic terror. I am not Islamophobic. I am a realist. 1000,000 to 1 terrorist attacks are Islamic world wide or close to it.

    It is sickening but unfortunately true Islamic terror is world wide and nobody is safe from it. It is time to rethink our values and not sound stupid parrotting endlessly “Islamophobic” like our chief defender of Islam Barack Hussein.

  • BS77

    Dismal reporting by the phony talking heads on TV and PC journalists….totally sickening.

  • Omar

    Now I'm wondering if those lunatic murderous brothers have some sort of connection to the Putin autocracy in Moscow. The Putin administration may be against Chechnyan separatists openly, but knowing the Kremlin's anti-democratic, anti-Western and pro-totalitarian (as well as neo-Soviet) agenda, It is possible that Putin had hired those brothers to commit what they did on Monday. In fact, the world needs to be suspicious of the United Russia Party (the modern-day Communist Party of the Soviet Union) and its extremist, Marxist-Leninist agenda to cause destabilization in the world. Remember, the radical left is in an open alliance with radical Islamist jihadists, and Putin (as a member of the radical left) is part of that alliance.

    • JoJoJams

      Occam's razor. It's more likely just simply that they are islamic jihadists, and all their own postings and life point to that. And bear in mind, I've never trusted Russia etc, and even at the alleged "fall of the USSR", i was openly adamant to people that it was all just a ruse. They couldn't compete (thanks Prez Reagan!!) and so they purposely broke apart to re-organize and re-arm, etc. They are the chess masters of the world (for the most part), after all!

      • EarlyBird

        I too have never been able to trust Russia since the end of the Cold War. Their instinct is to be tyrannical and nationalist at home, confrontational and imperial abroad.

    Assassination of Robert F. Kennedy
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Assassination_of_Rob

    Kennedy visited the British Mandate of Palestine in 1948 and wrote dispatches at
    the time for the Boston Post about his trip and the effect it had on him when he was
    twenty-two years old.[4] During his stay, he wrote that he grew to admire the Jewish
    inhabitants of the area. As a Senator, he later became a strong supporter and
    advocate for Israel.[5]

    Sirhan Sirhan was a Palestinian Arab Christian with Jordanian
    citizenship, born in Jerusalem, who held strongly anti-Zionist beliefs.

    Munich massacre
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Munich_massacre

    The Munich massacre was an attack during the 1972 Summer Olympics in
    Munich, Bavaria, West Germany on 11 members of the Israeli Olympic team, who
    were taken hostage and eventually killed, along with a German police officer, by the
    Palestinian group Black September……Black September called the
    operation "Ikrit and Biram",[9] after two Christian Palestinian villages whose
    inhabitants were expelled by the Haganah in 1948.

    • fiddler

      The topic here is media BIAS, edited and selective reporting. This is akin to the deliberately-edited out comments of the Trayvon Martin case where the media deliberately corrupted what the public heard in order to acheive a result. If this were a police investigation, perpetrators would be guilty of tampering with evidence. We don't need "filtered", "desired-outcome" news. This is the work of people trying to manufacture a reality. Please stick with the thrust of the article.

      • Rothschild

        I think the reasons for the medias covering up for the Saudi terrorists, is probably
        because of fear; either, the reporters are too afraid to do a story about Middle East
        terrorism and/or they are not equipped to do reporting like say they were during
        the time of RFK…look at RFK…when he was a reporter for the Boston Post in 1948,…he was
        there…. as a pro-Israel reporter with the actual people, and in one case even risking
        his own life…. also, I think they (the politicians with the military-industrial-complex, under Bush) barred the main stream reporters from war zones.

    • F.K. Juliano

      You thought one of them was a Palestinian Christian and you were wrong, so why are you bringing it up? Sirhan Sirhan and RFK, which happened decades ago, could not more irrelevant to Boston. Arabic-speaking Christians believed in the Nasserite b.s. about "Arab unity". They have since learned better thanks to the jihad directed against them. That's why you don't see any more lice of the ilk of Sirhan Sirhan and George Habash.

      • Rothschild

        I actually thought he was a Palestinian Christian terrorist working for the
        Saudis….I was also, at least half right because he was likely working
        for the Saudis.

        the PLO, the Muslim Brotherhood, and the House of Saud's
        Al-Qaeda branch etc.

  • rodger the dodger

    There’re a good few comments about saying “see, they’re white!” as if it somehow ‘proves’ something. Look at the Chechnyan leader. He looks like a fat, ginger, blue eyed, middle aged white guy you’d see in Wal-Mart. And he’s a Muslim nutter.

    And as I write this in a McDonalds in west London, there is a little girl of about 8 on the next table, wearing a hijab. She has whiter than white skin and blue eyes. Does that mean she’s not a muslim?

Can the public sue the media for deliberate, political editing of news? Is the public entitled to the truth? The left talks about underprivilaged people who don't have a computer (with which to get a second opinion); why don't THEY sue them. This is akin to a professional physicial as opposed to a quack. Doesn't the public DESERVE to know the truth instead of a PC sanitized, hyper sensitized, sterilized product?

      Tamerlane murdered 17 million people across the ME,Asia,India and up into Europe . He did so under a false claim of being a descendant of the Mongols ,he was no such thing- he was a muslim Turk. In his greed for power he even took down the Ottomans.

      He used to make his soldiers build towers of the heads of his victims to stand on top and announce the call to prayer . After the massacre of 1 city in India they made 28 head towers ,each consisting of 1,500 heads.

      The man who shot up an Aurora, Colo., movie theater during a screening of “The Dark Knight Rises” last summer has reportedly converted to Islam and prays up to five times a day.

      A prison source say the beard James Holmes sported in court last months represents his new-found faith. The source said Mr. Holmes has turned Muslim as a way of justifying his horrific crimes on July 20 which left 12 people dead and 58 people wounded, the Daily Mail reports.

      “He has brainwashed himself into believing he was on his own personal jihad and that his victims were infidels,” the source told the National Enquirer.

      Mr. Holmes now prays five times a day, sticks to a strict Muslim diet and spends hours each day studying the Koran, the source told the Enquirer.

      Mr. Holmes is charged with 166 counts, mostly for murder and attempted murder, the Mail reports. He could be executed or spend the rest of his life in prison if convicted. A Colorado judge entered a not guilty plea on his behalf earlier this month.

      So, are you saying belilevers in Islam have mental health issues? Sure, I'll agree with you on that. lol

        No wonder Major Hassan was no good at being a psychologist!

      "Terrorism" is generally defined as an atrocity committed against innocents to achieve political, religious, ethnic or ideological aims, which is apparently that the Marathon bombings were all about, while the sick animal who slayed all the children in Newtown seems to have had no such motives.

    • EarlyBird

      No, they weren't motivated by political, religious, ethnic or ideological aims. It's why we don't calling serial killers "terrorists." Words mean things.

    • Lan Astaslem

      lanza and the guy in colorado (forget name at the moment) were both psychopaths. the boston bros planned their, savage massacre in the name of their bloodthirsty cult, islam – which compels its adherents to kill non-believers

    • objectivefactsmatter

      "Very disappointing why these man are called terrorists but yet the guy that shot the school children and the guy at the movie theater are just crazy. What's the difference? OH I KNOW THEY WEREN'T MUSLIMS."

      You are correct, but very stupid to imply that is the only analysis on offer. As if "Islam" was picked out of a hat to "victimize."

      Enjoy your simple world. It may not last much longer.

    • Defcon 4

      Sorry Ahmed, but the movie theater shooter IS a muslime and has stated that the murders he committed were part of his personal jihad. So take your lying swill elsewhere…

    • SCREW SOCIALISM

      Life ain't fair,

      Then Islam has an epidemic of mental illness.

      70,000+ dead in Syria is due to Islamic mental illness, as were 9/11, Pan Am 103, underwear bomber, sneaker bomber, 1993 bombing of WTC, 2005 bombing of London transport, Beslan school massacre, Mumbai massacre, Toulouse France massacre…

      The Aurora and Newtown shooters had well documented histories of mental illness/ disorders. Both were so affected they could not function in normal society . They weren't members of any social/politica/religious groups that is known to foster extremist world views and hate.

      The Boston bombers exhibited no signs of mental illness. They thrived in society and were successful enough to have high priced education ,housing,clothing and cars. Islam has a 1400 year history of mass murder and genocide. The namesake of the oldest boy Tamerlane aka Timur the lame murdered 17 million people – 5% of the world population in the 1300's

      But this article isn't about any of that. Drop the fake victimization claim and thread hijacking ,the world isn't about you .

    G-d bless Robert Spencer, David Horowitz and all alike who reveal the truth and thus fighting for our freedom!
    Unfortunately only with support corrupted, shameless, Islamo-Nazis collaborators MSM and their masters who paid them for that, Islamic Jihad against Western civilization is successful enterprise.
    Hitler's German MSM supporters and their Masters were not next to Nazis war criminals on the benches of Nurnberg process and thus escaped to be punished for their collaboration. It is allowed our scoundrels leftists supporters Islamic terrorism to feel protected and not afraid to be taken responsible for that one. What is solution of this problem?

        "Or an invasion and occupation of Chechnya? Better to fight them over there than over here."

        Back to being stupid. I'm as surprised about that as I am about the religious beliefs of the recent terrorists.

        If the Chechen government is supporting and harboring terrorists, even then we don't just "attack" as your simple remarks suggest. Acting like an idiot is not evidence of our stupidity. It only displays yours.

    • objectivefactsmatter

      "Why, oh why, is no one calling for a ban on pressure cookers?!!!!!"

      Because tea party members don't tend to use them. That's who 0'Bama fears. It makes me wonder if 0'Bama is planning a major offensive far worse than anything he's done so far. And he knows the reaction he will get.

      On the other hand, 0'Bama is clearly a delusional freak and probably does believe that it's all the "white man's fault." Always and forever, until they're dead or in chains as "atonement."

    I think people overlook the fact that the mainstream media reflects corporate interests.They have no interest in the truth or informing the American people.Muslims are their customers im pretty sure that if you dig wealthy Saudis show up as stock holders.It is not about liberal/conservative George W. Bush was one of the most Islamophile presidents.Why because his family has ties to the Saudi royal family I can go on like that.

      You are correct but you don't understand where most of their funding comes from in terms of ads. They need lots of viewers. They just ago along with the PC BS to tickle the ears of their audience and play like they "get it." They are supposed to be journalists leading the way to the truth but they're followers trying to become as popular as possible while posing as journalists.

      • SCREW SOCIALISM

        That's why people should notify companies which advertise in the NY Times, the Faux News outlets of MSNBC, CNBC, CNN, that you will not do business with them until they cease advertising in those socialist/fascist "news" sewers.

      • candy

        But most of them are not journalists .They aren't educated as such, they are simply media personalities and wannabe actors for sale to the highest bidder. They have no experience with what is occurring in this country ,nor do they care.
        They have no problem blaming and destroying "white,right wingers" lives as long as it doesn't effect them and their paycheck. They played youtube kitty videos and giggled while a white woman was being beat to death with a hammer and crowbar and was set on fire by 3 blacks. If you asked them about it they'd shrug and cite white privilege caused the blacks to be angry and the woman probably deserved it.

        He who has the $ and/or power controls the narrative . If they are protecting muslims ,muslim money is involved .

    Take Boeing they sell billions worth of planes and fighter jets to Muslim countries.Why would they put ads or support a news channel that upsets their customers? To blame tv presenters is just silly they are just employees.

    • Parenthetical Phrase

      Silly, silly silly. Yes, that's what this whole thing is: Silly. And you Roland, need to wake up and enter the real world. Silly is hardly the word to describe the dishonesty and the purposeful distortion of the truth by a "journalist".

      "Take Boeing they sell billions worth of planes and fighter jets to Muslim countries.Why would they put ads or support a news channel that upsets their customers? To blame tv presenters is just silly they are just employees."

      Of course it's all about the arms trade. Everyone reports to them. Don't blame anyone else.

      Oil? What's that? Darwin, Marx, Nietzsche…who are they? What does ideology have to do with anything? I don't know, ask Mohammed. He was a prophet according to his own reckoning.

    Bob,
    After all these years– from the days we cleaned desks together on the roof of Aquinas to today (as evidenced by this tripe I am reading)– you are still a lovable charlatan and pedant. You were always bouncing from one extremism to the next back then, and it seems you are still at it. You need that convenient narrative where everything makes sense, and of course you need to be the beleaguered hero of that narrative, bravely carrying the real truth through the land of the infidels to deliver it unsullied to the faithful remnant who have not become "one of them."

    Come on, Bob. Cut the crap. You were a good religion teacher. What would Margaret have to say about all this intolerant nonsense?

    Every one is blaming a failed immigration policy. There is no immigration policy.
    How about blaming a delusional President. We were doing just fine until Barack Obama came on the scene.
    Now we have him elected President for 4 more years by voters who do not have a clue, and are lucky if they understand English, or know what scull duggery Obama is up to. Most are glad to have left the country of their birth, and probably will never to go back, and have no clue what the BILL OF RIGHTS, and OUR CONSTITUTION SAYS OR DOES. To those people, and majority of Americans those ideas are just a piece of paper.
    Ignoramuses all ! I wish I was more optimistic, but I am not.

      "…and have no clue what the BILL OF RIGHTS, and OUR CONSTITUTION SAYS OR DOES."

      You write this, but I GUARANTEE YOU that soon FPM will come out against putting this American citizen through a regular trial process, but instead will demand that he be treated as an "enemy combatant" and tried in some other way. And you will jump on the bandwagon.

    "Nowadays, it’s much more of a path to success to be politically correct than to be correct."
    I would state this differently: the path to certain failure can be avoided by being politically correct. Being politically correct does not necessarily insure "success" – however one defines success. Political correctness is a sign of conformity and the death of individuality and uniqueness. Political correctness is like a gulag which imprisons those who succumb to its totalitarian imperatives. It is the same as a blind devotion to a religious dogma or creed which is strictly adhered to and which punishes deviation with all manner of pain. Political correctness is one with totalitarianism.
