#BostonBombing Taxpayer-Funded Terror?

[Boston Herald]The breadth of the benefits the family was receiving was stunning,” said a person with knowledge of documents handed over to a legislative committee today.

The state has handed over more than 500 documents to the 11-member House Post Audit and Oversight Committee, which today met for the first time and plans to call in officials from the Department of Transitional Assistance to testify[More..]

The family also drove a Mercedes in which Skeletor stated something like this: "The Mercedes was ten years old and not a classic". My word, the liberalism - it hurts.

This is nothing new to me, but at least it is starting to get some press coverage. Not all press mind you, and certainly not the Bronco Bama media complex.

Al-Qaeda Sympathizers Protest At US Embassy In Austria In Support Of #BostonBombers

Click for some stupid image Kavkaz linked to
Those sure as hell aren't 'flags of Austria' they are sporting, just sayin..
An Austrian state news agency АРА reported on the story in an article "Activists demonstrate in Vienna in support for Tsarnaevs (Aktivisten demonstrieren in Wien für Tsarnaev)":

"On Thursday afternoon, at around 4:00 pm, a demonstration was held in Vienna to show solidarity with the two brothers who allegedly bombed the Boston Marathon.

"Muslims always hold together, no matter what happens...! We all know that the two Chechens are innocent!", shouted the organizers.
Betcha some under the burkhas are men.

h/t @th3j35t3r

If you are not a regular Jawa Report reader, the Kavkaz Center is al-Qaeda's Russian mouthpiece. When the Boston bombing first happened they were pretty quiet and now they are back to their regular jihadi propaganda program.

As Rusty has noted: "The Kavkaz Center, much like the "Voice of Jihad", Taliban's propaganda website [which has been pwnd several times by Jawas], no intelligence can be gained. Both are used for terrorist propaganda, only".

In the past they have called us Zionists. Like, that is a badge of honor here! Plus, they don't like boobies!

French Forces Arrest French Jihadist Gilles Le Guen (aka Abdel Jelil) In Northern Mali

France 24

French jihadist Gilles Le Guen, suspected of taking part in the attack on the Algerian gas plant in January, was arrested by French forces a few days ago in northern Mali, a French military spokesman reported on Tuesday.

The attack on Algeria's In Amenas gas plant saw 38 hostages and 29 assailants killed over a four-day period.

French Col. Thierry Burkhard said Tuesday that Gilles Le Guen was arrested this week north of Timbuktu, the fabled city which had been his base for some two years.[More..]

Six Asian Youths Plead Guilty in Terrorism Plot

I'm not sure why but they seem to dislike the British?


Omar Mohammed Khan, Mohammed Hasseen, Anzal Hussain, Mohammed Saud, Zohaib Ahmed and Jewel Uddin admitted preparing an act of terrorism. All six will be sentenced on 6 June.

Omar Khan, Zohaib Ahmed, Jewel Uddin, Mohammed Saud, Mohammed Hasseen and Anzal Hussain, (clockwise from top left)

On 30 June 2012, the EDL, an anti-Islamic group that says it supports peaceful protest, held a rally in Dewsbury, despite attempts by the Muslim community in the town to have it stopped.

Police estimated there could have been as many as 750 EDL supporters in attendance, as well as dozens of police officers and passers-by.

As the rally was taking place, the five men travelled there in two cars, one of which was carrying a homemade bomb constructed out of a modified firework and containing 359 nails and 93 ball bearings.

They also had two sawn-off shot guns, parts of other explosive devices, knives and a long printed message, dated the same day, describing their motivation and calling the Queen a "female devil".

You know back in the day the Queen would have had their heads on a pike at the Tower of London.

Those were the days.

Report: Boston Has Proven Attractive To al-Qaeda Linked Jihadist

One of many PC Headlines

These Islamic jihadist s/b called 'individuals'~Bronco Bama

Muslim extremists with ties to al Qaeda have been using Massachusetts and the city of Boston as a jihadi headquarters since at least 1993, according to a recent report by a top terrorism analyst.

At least 26 residents were found to have ties to al Qaeda, according to the report by the Henry Jackson Society. The activity dates from before the Tsarnaev brothers, radical Muslim immigrants to the United States, were identified as the suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing.

Jihadist activity has taken place in Massachusetts since at least 1993 and includes in-state fundraising for terrorism, “those convicted of planning jihad, and even those who have been killed while fighting abroad,” according to the report by terrorism analyst Robin Simcox.

The city [of Boston] and state of Massachusetts has a long history of ties to AQ [al Qaeda] and AQ-inspired militancy,” the report states.

“Even prior to last week’s Boston bombing, there had been twenty six individuals with links to Massachusetts connected to AQ [al Qaeda] and AQ-inspired terrorism,” the report states. “Fifteen had lived in Massachusetts, with eleven 9/11 hijackers using the Boston area as a temporary base from which to launch their attacks.”

The report provides a window into Massachusetts’ struggles with terrorists as the city of Boston grapples with the Tsarvaev brothers’ deadly acts.


Color me not surprised.

A More Aggressive Approach to Counter Cyber Terror?

[**Bumped by SH because important Scroll down for newer]

At last! The counter cyber terror pendulum stops and pauses. Will it swing toward a more equitable and effective strategy for dealing with Online Jihad?

Foreign Policy:
A great paradox of the conflict with al Qaeda is that the terrorists, largely driven by 14th century Islamist ideology, make such skillful use of 21st century information technology. Whether to tell their story of a sacred mission to reduce the shadow cast by American power over the Muslim world, to motivate recruits to join the jihad, or to provide a form of "distance learning" in terrorist tradecraft...

..The Boston bombing once again reminded the world of the benefits al Qaeda reaps from cyberspace, as it appears that the Tsarnaev brothers were radicalized and trained via jihadist websites. In this they were hardly alone. The London bombings in 2005 (which killed 52), the fizzled Glasgow Airport attack in 2007, the foiled plot against Fort Dix in 2007, Nidal Hasan's rampage at Fort Hood in 2009 (which killed 13), and the failed attempt to bring down a Northwest Airlines plane that same year all featured terrorists who made extensive use of online motivational and training materials.

The piece goes on to outline the classic conflict in dealing with the Online Jihad, how to balance the competing interests of intelligence gathering or spying, efforts to counter the messaging with more messaging and also direct engagement like take downs and interference with al-Qaeda and other terrorists' propaganda online.

We at Jawa Report have long been an advocate of strong action in the direct engagement camp. Through our actions we've taken down thousands of Youtube videos and hundreds of websites. While also being careful to save and preserve information and passing it along to the appropriate authorities when required.

A few our our cases have resulted in press, not to mention convictions and incarcerations of real cyber terrorists. All of which are too extensive to list here in this post. Of course we had the help of our wonderful reader activists as well as those in LE who do the real heavy lifting in getting these folks prosecuted and sentenced.

Takedowns can actually yield valuable intelligence as well, in the aftermath of an action the Jihadis will take steps that can be tracked and watched as well. Sometimes you breed a more resistant pest. Other times a slip up getting a new site running yields open directories full of data or maybe a DNS registration that was not privacy protected. Sometimes the target gets so angry they feel the needs to express themselves on your platform. Um yeah.... PWNED.

But we have to admit the last few years have been a slog. Here's counter terror expert Aaron Weisburd expressing his feelings at the current state of Counter Cyber Jihad.


The heydays of rampant take downs and Youtube Smackdown have long since passed in favor of the lets just watch method. While all the Jawas, Internet Haganah and other activists have our differences here are a few points I think we all feel basically the same about.

The goal is not to totally eliminate Terrorist Propaganda nor should it be. Never mind that its not possible, the existence of a certain areas that the more dedicated cats can be herded into is not a problem really. These high level forums for heavy hitters yield a lot of intelligence. Even then I'd still throw a wrench it it every now and then just to keep the level nagging discomfort at an appropriate level.

But then again neither should al-Qaeda and the terrorists be allowed free run.

If intelligence gleaned from cyberspace had given the counterterrorist coalition anything like the "information edge" enjoyed by the Allies against the Axis powers in World War II, the age of terror would already be over.
Exacly! Too much watch and not enough act creates new terrorists faster than they can be tracked. Much faster. The events in Boston demonstrate this.

A more comprehensive strategy is needed as the article suggests.

Several years ago, I met with senior intelligence officials to pitch the case for a New Bletchley Park. No dice. They were already doing just fine, I was told. I then took the matter up inside the Pentagon, finally reaching a then-serving member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. He was very supportive of the concept, and expressed concern that jihadists were being "given a free ride in cyberspace." But he felt that the matter had to be carried forward by...the intelligence community. No joy. Fast forward to the present: The old three-prong strategy of website-based observation, ideological disputation, and selected site disruption continues, despite the fact that al Qaeda still enjoys that virtual free ride.
Speaking of Boston and Samir Khan's Inspire magazine. Did you know that Jawa Report took down Samir Khan's blog a number of times.

We were one of the first to note that Samir was dangerous and was providing what we considered material supports for al-Qaeda's propaganda operation online. Through dissemination, translation and even his own propaganda Samir's goal was to support and aid al-Qaeda in its war against America.

Because see we really don't need a New Bletchley Park all we need is for US TO CARE. And much like if you see a Jihadi walking down the street with a bomb and an AK. If you see something say something.

Participate as a nation and we along with the appropriate authorities can help thwart al-Qaeda's goals and slow the radicalization of new and dangerous Jihadis. We can make them feel less safe to spread their evil online.

Can it prevent the next attack? No strategy is perfect but we know the results of doing nothing. And we can start right now.

Samir Kahn's Inpsire magazine that Dzhokhar and TamerlanTsarnaev used to murder and maim Americans at the Boston Marathon is still online.

Its being spread and discussed right now at the Minbar Al-Tawhid Wal-Jihad website and their Facebook page.

The site is hosted in NJ.


MTJ is hosted by Interserver.net, which according to its website is a New Jersey company located at 110 Meadowlands Parkway, Suite 100, Secaucus, NJ 07094. The toll-free office number is 1-877-566-8398, and regular office number 1-201-605-1440.

We're sure the site is being watched.

The question I guess is, Do you believe that the authorities, by watching alone, can identify and stop every potential terrorist that might be radicalized by information being spread via the website and Facebook?

If your answer is no then its time to take action. if not against the forum itself then against its Facebook and Youtube presence. Cecause the goal is not 100% elimination of the Cyber Jihad, it the bunt its effectiveness, to slow its spread and create a more hostile and less welcoming environment to the aspiring new Jihadis and terrorist propagandists.

Because sitting around and watching will seem of little benefit the next time we see our countrymen and women laying in the streets dead or maimed by another Jihadi who was incubated online.

Obama To Ed Henry: I Am Unaware Of Anyone Blocked From Testifying On #Benghazi
UPDATE: Rep Issa Responds

This is not the flag you are looking for: A video is what you seek!!

Damn Faux news, they just won't leave this alone! Halp BamaMedia!!

UPDATE: Rep Issa responds to Bronco Bamas comment:[rest of original post below this]

WASHINGTON- House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) made the following statement in response to President Barack Obama’s assertion that he’s “not familiar” with Benghazi whistleblowers being blocked from telling their stories:

“A lawyer for Benghazi whistleblowers has publicly stated that the State Department is blocking her client’s ability to talk freely with counsel. Over the past two weeks, I have sent four letters requesting that this Administration make information available about how lawyers – who already have security clearances and are representing Benghazi whistleblowers – can be cleared to fully hear their clients’ stories. I have yet to receive any response from the Obama Administration.

“Even if the President really doesn’t know anything about someone wanting to come forward, his position should be that whistleblowers deserve protection and that anyone who has different information about Benghazi is free to come forward to Congress. The President’s unwillingness to commit himself to protecting whistleblowers only aids those in his Administration who are intimidating them.”

Issa’s four letters requesting that the Administration make information available for lawyers representing Benghazi whistleblowers:

Bronco Bama really had a bad time at presser[h/t David]: 'Maybe I Should Just Pack Up and Go Home. Golly.'


4/30/13 - The first two questions of the press conference marking President Obama's first 100 days of his second term Tuesday concerned the administration's "red line" on Syria and the investigation into the Boston Marathon bombings. But somehow, both questions also hinged on Benghazi. After responding to Fox News' Ed Henry's inquiry about victims of the Benghazi attack who say they are being blocked from testifying about what they went through, the president answered CNN's Jessica Yellin on claims from Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) that "Benghazi and Boston are both examples of the U.S. going backwards on national security."

Yellin was referring to comments Sen. Graham made recently to CNN in which he affixed blame on the Obama administration for failing to prevent the attacks in Boston. During the press conference today, Yellin asked, "Is he right and did our intelligence miss something?"[More]

Hithem Ziad Ibrahim Masshal Eliminated: IDF Splodes Senior MSC Member



[A]n IAF aircraft on Gaza Tuesday morning assassinated a senior Salafist terror activist who was reportedly behind an April 17 rocket attack on Eilat from the Sinai.

The IDF and Shin Bet security service confirmed that they had targeted Hithem Ziad Ibrahim Masshal, 24, from the Shati refugee camp.

The attack marked the first “targeted strike” on a Gaza terror figure by Israel since November’s Operation Pillar of Defense, and came amid a renewal of sporadic rocket fire into Israel that seemed to show the deterrent effect of November’s operation was eroding.

[Continue Reading]

David Barnett of the Long War Journal has more:
According to the IDF, Masshal, who "manufactured, improved and traded different types of ammunition," was involved in the April 17 rocket attack on Eilat from the Sinai, for which the Mujahideen Shura Council in the Environs of Jerusalem (MSC) had taken responsibility[...]

Following the Eilat attack, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had warned that Israel would "exact a price for this [the attack]; this has been our consistent policy for the past four years and it will serve us here as well." Egypt was reportedly briefed ahead of today's strike.

This afternoon, the MSC released a statement through the Ibn Taymiyyah Media Center confirming that Masshal was a member of their organization. During the funeral, Masshal was wrapped in al Qaeda's black flag, which was first used by al Qaeda in Iraq but has been adopted by other al Qaeda affiliates.

Omar Hammami Death Watch Day II

He's still not dead Jim.

Omar Hammami, the Alabama-born jihadi in Somalia who achieved Internet fame through his raps, appears to be safe for now after a series of increasingly desperate tweets yesterday about his standoff with Somali militants.

Hammami, also known as Abu Mansour al-Amriki, began tweeting at @abumamerican around the time of his falling-out with al-Shabaab, the militant group he moved to Somalia to join. His tweets on Monday were a string of dispatches from an increasingly tense standoff with al-Shabaab fighters, with whom he has fallen out. "I think he's in a lot of trouble, although the fact he's managed to stay alive this long is already surprising," said J.M. Berger, a terrorism expert who is one of Hammami's most frequent interlocutors on Twitter, on Monday afternoon.

click for larger
On Tuesday, Hammami showed signs of life, tweeting that "Abu mansuur, afghani, hasan thahir uweys, &others passed a fatwa on http://aljahd.com that fighting us is haram &that we arent bughat." Berger translated on his own Twitter the meaning of the fatwa: "Shabab sheikhs Robow and Aways co-signed a fatwa related to Godane's 'attempted assassination' of Omar Hammami and other foreign fighters. I'll wait for a real translation for nuance, but the broad takeaway from the fatwa is: 'Do not obey the prince in disobedience to God.'" Godane, or Moktar Ali Zubeyr, is the leader of al-Shabaab. The fatwa was posted on the Jahad jihadist online forum. The fatwa "theoretically bodes well for Omar and his allies," Berger tweeted.
Stay tuned kids!

Shocking News: Harvard “Revolutionary” Socialists Hate Free Speech

I read Rebel Pundits post on the Neo-Commies at Harvard planning their post Boston Bombing disinformation strategies.

The Harvard “Revolutionary” Socialists gathered last week, just three days after the Boston Marathon bombings, for a forum entitled “Don’t Let Them Turn Tragedy into Racism” on the Harvard University campus.

The two speakers, including “one of Britain’s leading young radical intellectuals,” put forth talking points that not only express the “Revolutionary” socialists’ opinion of the Boston terrorism, but also appear to almost exactly echo those put forth by the mainstream media in the U.S.

From the New Yorker to the Chicago Tribune, MSNBC, and even Tom Brokaw, the media marched in lockstep with the finger-pointing talking points presented in close proximity to the site of the terror at Harvard’s Socialist forum—finger-pointing at anyone and anything but Islamic Jihadis.

So I like, you know, decided I'd see where the original video was posted so that I could, in the interest of public discourse and democracy, stop in there and express myself. Because I like all totally am all about diversity you know.

So I posted in comments and I was immediately accused of being a racist from FOXNEWS and blocked.

Obama Administration Officials Threatened Whistle-Blowers On #Benghazi, Lawyer Says

This is not the flag you are looking for: A video did it!!

Color me NOT surprised:

At least four career officials at the State Department and the Central Intelligence Agency have retained lawyers or are in the process of doing so, as they prepare to provide sensitive information about the Benghazi attacks to Congress, Fox News has learned.

Victoria Toensing, a former Justice Department official and Republican counsel to the Senate Intelligence Committee, is now representing one of the State Department employees. She told Fox News her client and some of the others, who consider themselves whistle-blowers, have been threatened by unnamed Obama administration officials.

I'm not talking generally, I'm talking specifically about Benghazi – that people have been threatened,” Toensing said in an interview Monday. “And not just the State Department. People have been threatened at the CIA.”[...]

However, Toensing disclosed that her client has pertinent information on all three time periods investigators consider relevant to the attacks: the months that led up to the attack, when pleas by the ambassador and his staff for enhanced security in Benghazi were mostly rejected by senior officers at the State Department; the eight-hour time frame in which the attacks unfolded, and the eight-day period that followed the attacks, when Obama administration officials incorrectly described them as the result of a spontaneous protest over a video.[Video maker still in jail..ed]

“It's frightening, and they're doing some very despicable threats to people,” she said. “Not ‘we're going to kill you,’ or not ‘we're going to prosecute you tomorrow,’ but they're taking career people and making them well aware that their careers will be over [if they cooperate with congressional investigators].”

#BostonBombing: Female DNA Found On Bomb 'Component'..
Update: DNA Obtained From Dead Bombers Wife


Mommy dearest? His wife's?

The plot thickens:

Investigators have found female DNA on at least one of the bombs used in the Boston Marathon attacks, though they haven't determined whose DNA it is or whether that means a woman helped the two suspects carry out the attacks, according to U.S. officials briefed on the probe.

The officials familiar with the case cautioned that there could be multiple explanations for why the DNA of someone other than the two bombing suspects—Tamerlan Tsarnaev and his younger brother, Dzhokhar—could have been found on remnants of the exploded devices. The genetic material could have come, for example, from a store clerk who handled materials used in the bombs or a stray hair that ended up in the bomb.

On Monday, Federal Bureau of Investigation agents were seen leaving the Rhode Island home of the parents of Katherine Russell[More]

h/t @MoxieMom

Update: Investigators Obtain DNA From Widow of Bombing Suspect

Federal authorities are closely scrutinizing the activities of the wife of the dead Boston Marathon bombing suspect in the days before and after the attacks.

The authorities are looking at a range of possibilities, two senior law enforcement officials said, including that she could have — wittingly or unwittingly — destroyed evidence, helped the bombers evade capture or even played a role in planning the attacks. As part of the investigation, F.B.I. agents are trying to determine whether female DNA found on a piece of a pressure cooker used as an explosive device in the attacks was from Katherine Russell, the wife of Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the officials said.

Omar Hammami Death Watch Update

Imagine my surprise and heartbreak when I returned from vacation to find that Omar Hammami had been shot in the neck and was probably buzzard bait somewhere in the Somali desert. I and I'd missed the whole sheebang!

Then imagine the sigh of relief when Stable Hand emailed with a He's not dead Jim!


Hiding in a hole? Damn that's a letdown. I thought the brave Muj would stand to the death while facing impossible odds. Silly me.

Anyway, I'm back now so you may proceed with the operation. Fire when ready.

Update: It looks like Shabaab is creating a Kangaroo Sharia case against Omar.

It appears his group is holding out in the forest against those seeking him. It appears he's not very optimistic about the eventual outcome.

He became so powerful, the only thing he was afraid of was losing his power, which, eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught his apprentice everything he knew. Then his apprentice killed him in his sleep. It's ironic. He could save others from death, but not himself."

For Ruth. A Tribute

Our friend Phyllis Chesler wrote this memorial piece on her friend Ruth Bergman Jody while I was out on vacation.

Its a great read and a great story.

Is it possible that certain people are really angels who quietly but directly intervene in the lives of thousands of people?

I am talking about my dear friend, Ruth Bergman Jody, whose Memorial at the Ethical Culture Society I just attended. I knew Ruth for 46 years. I knew she was a "good" person. But I did not know her at all.

Ruth arrived here as a teenaged Jewish refugee from Hitler's Germany in 1940—a fact she never dwelled upon in our first thirty five years together. I know she also lived in Mexico for a decade, returned to NYC, and obtained a Master degree in Counseling from Columbia University. Ruth was the long-time director of the Hunter College Guidance and Tutoring program.

At her Memorial service, people of all ages, many colors, both genders, all sexual persuasions, and from many continents, gathered to memorialize her: a veritable rainbow of tribute. They described how Ruth turned their lives around, mentored them, found them jobs, shelter, safety, and set them on their path. Ruth was interested in everybody and everything. She made each person feel "special."

High School Hosts First Prom Ever; Leftist Media Reports It As First "Integrated" Prom Ever

The school claims it has never hosted a prom at all, much less any segregated events. The students took it upon themselves to host private parties, with most white students attending one and most black students attending another.

This year, Wilcox County School agreed to officially host a prom, which naturally will be open to all students. But the left-wing media is only reporting it as the first ever integrated prom, the implication being the school has kept students segregated up until this year:

Almost half a century after the Civil Rights Act of 1964 outlawed racial discrimination in schools and other public places, black and white students in Georgia's rural Wilcox County danced together for the first time at prom over the weekend.

In case their biased and misleading reporting didn't stir enough racial tensions, NBCNews added:

Traditionally, most students were welcome to the "black prom" but an unwritten rule kept students of different races from attending the "white prom."

"Unwritten rule" by who? The whites to keep blacks out? The blacks to promote their own segregated prom? I would find it more believable that both proms were open to others or that both had an "unwritten rule." The media just decided to praise one side and demonize the other with this ambiguous text, keeping with their leftist agenda.

A screenshot from NBCNews:


And people wonder why there are still racial issues in this age of Obama? It isn't because of any systematic discrimination. It is because certain advocates, mostly from the left, like to manufacture racism where it doesn't exist.

I'm not saying there are no racist people out there. There will always be individuals who harbor ignorant, bigoted attitudes. However, as a whole, as a society, racial discrimination has been rightly abolished.

But the left will always keep racism alive. It must. Racism and diversion are its nature. Even if it means destroying the country in the process.

Two More of Tamerlan Tsarnaev's Fellow Travelers

I'm back from vacation... I see the jihad is still jihading. At least the not dead ones.

Via Intelwire:

Syndney Morning Herald: A Canadian boxer killed fighting with jihadists in Russia has emerged as a key contact who might have set the elder Boston bomber on his path to violent extremism.

In what could be a breakthrough in understanding how Tamerlan Tsarnaev – himself a skilled boxer – became radicalised and turned to violence, Moscow's respected newspaper Novaya Gazeta revealed his links with William Plotnikov, who was killed last July by security forces in the troubled southern Russian republic of Dagestan.

Two days after Plotnikov's death, Tsarnaev flew to Moscow, and the next day to the US.

"After Nidal and Plotnikov were destroyed and he lost his contacts, Tsarnaev got frightened and fled."

Why those Tsarnaev boys have more connections to Jihad than a dog has fleas.

Faked 'Hate Crime' Against Mosque

I'm calling it a hoax. There is a history of individuals faking hate crimes in an effort to create the illusion of backlash after acts of terrorism or sudden jihad syndrome.

In this case, someone pretty stupid is attempting to fake a hate crime with graffiti:

Police said Saturday they were investigating what a Muslim advocacy group described as an act of vandalism against an Oklahoma City mosque that may have been part of a backlash after the Boston Marathon bombings.

The graffiti was misspelled words, confused symbols, and a very blatant antisemitic link. The perpetrator wrote "Hale, Satan" and drew a common anarchist symbol, not a Satanist symbol one would expect given the text :


The anarchist symbol is a stylized "A" while a Satanist symbol is a pentagram:


Also at the site, was a star of david, which the vandals seemed to have confused with a Satanic pentagram:


I'm thinking the person(s) responsible will end up being leftists rather than Muslims.

So, here's a tip for all you hoaxers who want to be taken seriously - know your meme.

Bosch Fawstin: Calling Islam "Islam"

I've always had a special place in my heart for ex-Muslims.

As much as I dislike Islam, and despite my impatience at those who steadfastly adhere to the violent, irrational Islamic ideology, I feel a sense of joy when meeting an ex-Muslim. I could sit and listen for hours while an ex-Muslim explains why he or she embraced Islam, but then later became disillusioned by it. I love hearing an "insider's" point of view and knowing that, however enamored they once were by Islam, they ultimately discovered that true freedom came, for them, by rejecting the religion. I understand Jesus' parable about the lost sheep.

I also understand that ex-Muslims are the strongest and the best intellectually armed allies we have to fight against Islamic terrorism. On my side, I'd rather have one ex-Muslim who understands the enemy than a thousand well-intentioned, politically correct politicians trying desperately not to offend anyone, much less the enemy.

And the best thing about ex-Muslims is that they can pretty much say anything about Islam without being called an 'Islamophobe' or a 'racist.' They've been there. They were a Muslim. They are the same race as Muslims. (Or whatever race liberals and Islamists consider a Muslim race, since they tend to call anyone speaking ill of Islam a "racist.")

Bosch Fawstin is one of those ex-Muslims. Bosch is a blogger and a cartoonist who isn't afraid to speak his mind. Over at Frontpage Magazine, Bosch revives an article he wrote shortly after 9/11. It is just as relevant today as it was then.

Western intellectuals and commentators refer to the enemy's ideology as:

"Islamic Fundamentalism," "Islamic Extremism," "Totalitarian Islam," "Islamofascism," "Political Islam," "Militant Islam," "Bin Ladenism," "Islamonazism," "Radical Islam," "Islamism," etc...

The enemy calls it "Islam."

Imagine, if during past wars, we used terms such as "Radical Nazism," "Extremist Shinto" and "Militant Communism." The implication would be that there are good versions of those ideologies, which would then lead some to seek out "moderate" Nazis. Those who use terms other than "Islam" create the impression that it's some variant of Islam that's behind the enemy that we're facing. A term such as "Militant Islam" is redundant, but our politicians continue praising Islam as if it were their own religion.

Read it all.

MFM Echoes Harvard 'Revolutionary Socialists' Post #BostonBombing Talking Points

Via Rebel Pundit:

The Harvard “Revolutionary” Socialists gathered last week, just three days after the Boston Marathon bombings, for a forum entitled “Don’t Let Them Turn Tragedy into Racism” on the Harvard University campus.

The two speakers, including “one of Britain’s leading young radical intellectuals,” put forth talking points that not only express the “Revolutionary” socialists’ opinion of the Boston terrorism, but also appear to almost exactly echo those put forth by the mainstream media in the U.S.

From the New Yorker to the Chicago Tribune, MSNBC, and even Tom Brokaw, the media marched in lockstep with the finger-pointing talking points presented in close proximity to the site of the terror at Harvard’s Socialist forum—finger-pointing at anyone and anything but Islamic Jihadis.

Many Americans have expressed disgust at the extreme pains some of the more elite members of the media went to avoid “prematurely judging” or presuming that whoever was responsible for the attack might be Islamic Jihadis. This, coupled with failing to extend such courtesy to those Americans among us opposed to high taxes and big government, was particularly revealing of the focus of the mainstream media.

Saudi Arabia deports man for being too sexy for his beard:

Three men from United Arab Emirates were attending the Jenadrivah Heritage & Culture Festival in Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia. They were forcibly evicted from the festival by Saudi police officers. The grounds for this harsh move? The visitors were too handsome. Omar Borkan Al Gala, one of the three men to get deported from Saudi Arabia for being too handsome. [...]

After evicting them, the police immediately deported the trio back to Abu Dhabi, lest any Saudi women see them and find them too irresistible to not fall in love.

Yeah, the women might find him too irresistible. We'll go with that... (wink, wink)

Police Say Boeing ID Is Clearly Visible On Aircraft Part; Scene Being Secured.

Police said it was discovered wedged between the rear of 51 Park Place and the rear of the building behind it, 50 Murray Street, in lower Manhattan. That area is the site of a controversial mosque and community center development, which currently used as prayer space and some community events[...]

The NYPD was securing the location as it would a crime scene, documenting it photographically and restricting access until the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner completes its health and safety evaluation protocol.

After that, a decision will be made concerning sifting the soil for possible human remains.[More...]

American on FBI Most Wanted for Aiding al Shabaab Shot by ..... al Shabaab

Omar Hammami tweeted yesterday that he'd been shot by a "Shabaab assassin" in the neck, but that the wound didn't seem mortal to him and he was self treating it.

Vinnie called him out on it saying we wouldn't believe it unless he gave us photographic evidence.

In reply, he posted a series of images, including this one:


So, a guy on the FBI's Top 10 Most Wanted Terrorist list was just shot by the terrorists who he went to Somalia to help. Ironic.

But the plot thickens.

After the assassination attempt Hammami then claimed that Shabaab had teamed up with the Somali government and have surrounded the village where he's holed up. A second source tweeting from Mogidishu also claims that word is that one of Shabaab's factions has Hammami and five others considered disloyal to the terror group surrounded. For his part, Hammami says that the locals back him and his rag tag group of non-Somalis.

His last tweet was that:

they are sending forces from multiple directions. we are few but we might get back up. abu zubayr has gone mad. he's starting a civil war.
So, it's on in Somalia. Red on red.

It seems that our efforts to get Omar to come home and face the music have failed. And as we've been telling him for months, this isn't going to end well.

At least not for him. But for the rest of us? Pass the popcorn.

Did You Hear About A Ukrainian Rutgers Student Arrested For Taking 2 IED's Into NYC 8 Days Before #BostonBombing?

Neither did I and it was only reported after the perp appeared in Hudson County Court on Wednesday

Just eight days before three people were killed and more than 260 people were injured in the Boston Marathon bombing, a Ukrainian student was arrested in New Jersey carrying two homemade devices.

Rutgers student Mykyta Panasenko, 27, was arrested in Hoboken on April 7 aboard a NJ Transit train bound for Suffern, New York. He was carrying two improvised explosive devices, according to police.

Jersey City Police Deputy Chief Peter Nalbach said Thursday that authorities also found material at Panasenko's home ‘that may have been used to make an explosive device.’[...]

His arrest wasn't reported by authorities at the time, but became public after he appeared in Hudson County Court on Wednesday.

News of the arrest comes after revelations that the Tsarnaev brothers, the two suspects in the Boston bombings, had also planned to set off bombs in Manhattan.[More...[

Oh Terrorists, We Are So Sorry..

Michael Goodwin at the NY Post is right on

Gone, thankfully, are the days when rape victims routinely were treated as if they deserved it. Perhaps the time also will come when the American people are no longer blamed after terrorists kill them.

We are not there yet.

In a rancid piece of trash that basically calls the Boston terror attack just deserts, a United Nations official says “the American global domination project” is the problem. Richard Falk, a professor at Princeton, urges politicians to “connect the dots” between US foreign policy and terrorism at home.

He asks: “Should we not all be meditating on W.H. Auden’s haunting line: ‘Those to whom evil is done/do evil in return’?”

He predicted “worse blowbacks” and said, “As long as Tel Aviv has the compliant ear of the American political establishment, those who wish for peace and justice in the world should not rest easy.”[...]

No doubt the president is hanging back now because he feels the need to protect ordinary Americans from the inconvenient truth. Otherwise, he suggested Friday, their innate bigotry against Islam will burst forth in murderous rage. His political correctness is so extreme as to suggest he imagines that, if Christians and Jews see an Islam connection to terror, they might start wearing suicide belts themselves.

Having bought into the myth that his countrymen are guilty of Islamophobia, Obama is upping the ante. He refused to even consider calling Tsarnaev an enemy combatant so more information about his terror ties could be learned.

Video: In the Aftermath of the Boston Bombing: Moderate Muslims Take on the Islamists

http://www.clarionproject.org - Clarion's National Security Analyst Ryan Mauro interviewed Salim Mansour and C. Holland Taylor, two moderate Muslims who are leaders of Muslim organizations fighting Muslim extremists.

Mansour is vice-president of Muslims Facing Tomorrow and a political science profesor at the Unitersity of Western Ontario, and Taylor is the founder and CEO of the LibForAll Foundation and an expert on Islam and the Islamization of Southeast Asia.

The webinar probed the questions that remain in all of us in the aftermath of the Bostom bombings: Was this a case an isolated case of radicalization or are many Muslims failing to assimilate into American values? What can be done to assimilate Muslims into American values of democracy and tolerance of others?

Participants discussed what is being taught in Muslim schools and mosques as well as how to fight Muslim Brotherhood front groups, especially their duplicity which has become glaringly apparent in their comments about the Boston attack

London Cornhole Watch: Terrorism Perp Richard Dart (aka Salahuddin al-Britani): "Only Allah Can Judge Me"..

Via The Daily Mail

A white Muslim convert who plotted to attack soldiers in Royal Wootton Bassett was jailed for six years yesterday.

Richard Dart, 30, the son of teachers, was arrested as he tried to leave for terrorist training in Pakistan.

The former BBC security guard refused to stand for his sentencing at the Old Bailey, telling Mr Justice Simon: ‘Judgment is only for Allah.’

Middle-class Dart was converted to Islam by hate preacher Anjem Choudary, who also inspired a plot to attack the London Stock Exchange.[More..]

Anjem Choudary keeps popping up, who woulda thunk?

Previous, from Rusty:

Here's a video of Dart. Notice that it's on the YouTube page of Muslims Against Crusades, another among a long list of groups once run by Anjem Choudary which are now banned in the UK.

The BBC also featured Dart in a video called "My Brother the Islamist" in which he calls himself a "jihadist" and admits supporting al Qaeda. The video also records Dart's conversion to Islam, the shahada administered by none other than .... Anjem Choudary[ @anjemchoudary...who appears to be a tad upset about the article..tweet him, he has me blocked!..SH]

Which means that Dart was on everyone's radar and he knew it. So, in addition to being a would-be terrorist, he's also a retard. Which is kind of redundant, I know.

The "Only Allah Can Judge Me" reminds me of the court outburst of the mujahidiot in Canada who was just busted for planinng to bomb, with his akhi, the trestle linking New York and Ontario at Niagara Falls: "I'm only judged by the Holy book.

I suppose it is hard to pound into their thick heads the West is not and will not be ruled by Islamic law.

Wait, he was only sentenced to 6 years with Bubba? Come on London, you could have done better than that.

Yah, that will teach him. Bubba, please do your best on this bitch in the time you have him.

Katherine Russell Tsarnaeva Notified Hubby That FBI Released His Picture


How precious

According to those officials, Dzokhar Tsarnaev told interrogators that the information that set in motion the series of events leading to Tamerlan’s death and Dzokhar’s apprehension came in a phone call from Katherine Russell Tsarnaeva to her husband. “She notified him and there certainly didn’t seem to be any notion of surprise – just a report that ‘you’re being watched,’” said one official with knowledge of the investigation. Tsarnaev had seen the photographs and videos distributed by the FBI on television and called her husband to give him a heads up.
I wonder what her online handle is. The "I was shocked" by wifey really doesn't hold any water now, does it? She gave hubby a heads up instead of notifying the FBI.

And I repeat myself, how much more could the investigators could have learned had they not been interrupted early by a magistrate judge a representative from the U.S. Attorney's office to read Dzhokhar his Miranda Rights. They had 48hrs to interrogate him under the "public safety exemption" but were only given 16.

No, We Have Not Forgotten The Tragedy In West, Texas


A memorial service was held today in Waco,Texas honoring the first responders who lost their lives last week in a explosion at a fertilizer plant in West, Texas.

Faces of the Fallen.

WACO (April 25, 2013)—Firefighters sounded a bell 12 times Thursday as the names of the 12 men who died in the massive fertilizer plant explosion in West were read in a traditional salute to the fallen during a memorial service at Baylor’s Ferrell Center attended by thousands.

Tears flowed freely Thursday afternoon as family, friends and colleagues remembered the 12 in video eulogies as men who loved their families, their communities and who were bound together by a dedication to service and a willingness to risk their lives to save others.

The arena was filled to capacity by 1:30 p.m. and those who couldn’t get in were directed to alternative viewing sites at Waco Hall, the Bill Daniel Student Center and the Student Life Center as well as at the Turner Riverfront Athletic Complex.

The service started late because Marine One, carrying Mr. Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama from Dallas where they attended the dedication of the George W. Bush Presidential Center, circled West several times en route to Waco.[...]

Earlier, a long, solemn procession of firefighters from around Central Texas, the state and the U.S. moved from a staging area a half-mile from the Baylor campus to the arena.

Firefighters from departments that lost members in the explosion carried the helmets of the fallen first responders into the Ferrell Center.

The procession was so long that police scrambled to find space for firefighters to park the trucks.

Brian Crawford, the fire chief in the Dallas suburb of Plano, accompanied 11 other firefighters from his department.

He said he wanted to show "we are all a family."

The service was organized by the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation and Texas Line of Duty Death Task Force to remember the firefighters and first responders who died in the April 17 explosion in West.
[ Continue reading and view more images ]

Our thoughts and prayers are still with those who were affected by this terrible tragedy. May their loved ones R.I.P. and may the healing begin.

I don't mean to be nasty, but Obama was late? Is it always about him? Could he not have toured the devastation before hand, like on the ground?

Report: #BostonBombers Intended To Bomb Times Square Next

I wanted to bomb Times Square too but my VBIED failed~ Faisal Shahzad

"Party in New York" is what was initially stated by #2 during the first interrogation.

Talk about f'd up in the head this bitch is to call bombing a 'party':

On Thursday afternoon, Bloomberg stated that he had been informed by the FBI that the brothers did indeed intend to bomb Times Square. “We now know that that possibility was all too real,” Bloomberg said. The surviving attacker admitted that he and his brother intended to drive to New York and intended to detonate additional explosives in Times Square. "They had built these additional explosives," Bloomberg added.[...]

[Police Commissioner] Kelly said that the first interrogation of Dzhokhar revealed the "party" comments. That interrogation happened Saturday evening to Sunday morning. The second interrogation, which revealed the Tsarnaevs' alleged plans to bomb Times Square, took place Sunday evening to Monday morning[...]

The brothers were in Times Square in April 2012, as well as November, Kelly stated. There were pictures of the brothers from that time.

Gee, imagine how much more the investigators could have learned had they not been interrupted early by a magistrate judge a representative from the U.S. Attorney's office to read Dzhokhar his Miranda Rights. They had 48hrs to interrogate him under the "public safety exemption" but were only given 16.

Mother of Boston Bomber Who Believes Son Was Framed Also Knew He Was "Willing to Die for Islam"

Artist's rendition of Boston bomber's mother

All of this cognitive dissonance has to hurt Zubeidat Tsarnaeva's head:

The mother of Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev knew as early as 2011 that her son had been radicalized and sent text messages to family in Russia 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.
And thus the conspiracy laden mind is laid bare. The mom thinks her son was set up, while simultaneously knowing that he was a radical Islamist ready to die for the cause.

You wonder how a person like Tamerlin Tsarnaeva could simultaneously think that 9/11 was an inside job, that Muslims would never do such a thing, and then go on to murder people in the name of Islam?

Wonder no more. There's something wrong with their brains.

Or, as a friend of mine used to explain: they can't help it, they're retarded.

[Continue reading]

I like happy endings although she has her work cut out for her deprogramming her son from all of the Allahu Akhbar shit.
[ Daily Mail]....

Son: Khalil Mohamed 'Niko' Atteya, 12, told Fox News that he now hopes to be home-schooled as he reintegrates into the United States after roughly 20 months in Egypt[...]

She[Ms Atteya] told Fox News: ‘I followed him. I mean, I came really close to him several different times. (Mr Atteya) didn’t recognize me, but my son did and when he saw me for the first time, he turned pale.’

In total, Miss Atteya made several trips to Egypt and after being tipped off by a local, finally made her move and rescued her boy, who is now back in Pennsylvania with her.

She said: ‘My son told me (the kidnapping was) to make him a Muslim.

‘He said that we lack the morality and the values that their system has. And he said that Americans were so violent, he said we are a rotting society.’

Mr Atteya, 38, who speaks Arabic, English and Chinese, is wanted by the U.S. State Department's Bureau of Diplomatic Security Service for using forged documents to obtain a passport.

Jeffrey Evans, a lawyer who lobbied to have charges filed against Mr Atteya, said: ‘If there was ever a testament to the power of a mother’s love, she embodies that.

Indeed she does.

Boston Terrorists' Mother: Bombing Was Faked; Red Paint Used To Simulate Blood

And amputees hired to play victims... It's all a mad scheme to make Muslims look bad.

Evil Americans staged the whole Boston Marathon bombings (emphasis mine):

The suspects' mother, who has an outstanding warrant for shoplifting, was at the news conference as well, but apparently is not planning to make the trip. She expressed sympathy for the victims, yet questioned whether the bombing even took place, suggesting red paint was used to simulate blood on Boston's Boylston Street.

The terrorists' father also made a statement saying he has no plans 'to blow up anything' while in America. Let's hope that doesn't change.

"And Allah is supposed to take care of all this decadence but Allah never does. So they take it upon their hands to do it themselves. And we act like, 'Well, if just make friends with them, then maybe, they’ll back off.' They're not going to back off as long as we're enjoying our decadent life."

Saved By Miranda Rights: Dzhokhar Tsarnaev 'Stopped Talking'..

My brother made me do it

Who woulda thunk?

Once Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was read his rights on Monday, he immediately stopped talking, according to four officials of both political parties who were briefed on the interrogation but insisted on anonymity because the briefing was private.

"After roughly 16 hours of questioning, investigators were surprised when a magistrate judge and a representative from the U.S. Attorney's office entered the hospital room and read Tsarnaev his rights, the four officials and one law enforcement official said. Investigators had planned to keep questioning him.[More...]

The article continues with something like no worries as we have enough evidence to convict him.

Okay then if you say say so but damn the intelligence gathering? For gawds sake, they weren't waterboarding the bitch.

Dzhokhar told the FBI that they were angry about the U.S. wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and the killing of Muslims there, officials said.

How much of those conversations will end up in court is unclear. The FBI normally tells suspects they have the right to remain silent before questioning them so all their statements can be used against them.

pressure from Congress
, however, the Department of Justice has said investigators may wait until they have gathered intelligence about other threats before reading those rights in terrorism cases. The American Civil Liberties Union has expressed concern about that.

They certainly didn't wait in this case.

Update: Megyn Kelly on investigators shock when perp's Miranda Rights were given to him.

So why were they shocked? According to Kelly, the FBI was under the understanding that they would get much more time with Tsarnaev under the “public safety exemption” before he was read his rights. Adding to the shock: the sources told Kelly agents were getting crucial information after only 16 hours of questioning and were making valuable progress.[...]

They said they were in the process of getting valuable information … and as soon as that magistrate judge went in there and gave him his rights with his lawyer present, he stopped talking. They said they would never have stopped interrogating him prior to the 48 hours unless they were forced to.”

“These officials with knowledge of the proceedings say they believe our national security may have been compromised by the decision to send that judge in there so soon after the filing of the criminal complaint.”

Middle School Workshop: Girls Ordered To Kiss Each Other

At Red Hook Middle School in New York during an "anti-bullying" workshop, teen girls were forced to pretend to be a lesbian couple and kiss each other.

Parents of children attending a Red Hook, New York, middle school are outraged after a recent anti-bullying presentation at Linden Avenue Middle School. [...]

Parents say their daughters were told to ask one another for a kiss and they say two girls were told to stand in front of the class and pretend they were lesbians on a date.

"She told me, 'Mom we all get teased and picked on enough. Now I'm going to be called a lesbian because I had to ask another girl if I could kiss her,'" parent, Mandy Coon, told reporters.

Coon says parents were given no warning about the presentation and there was no opportunity to opt-out. Both the school principal and the district superintendent are defending the workshops and advising they will schedule more.

The boys were also forced to attend a workshop. Only in their forum, they were taught to always keep a condom handy and how to spot girls who are "sluts."

And no, that isn't sarcasm. That is actually the workshop presented for the male students.

Example #3,142: Insane, Antisemite, & Violent Jihad Not Mutually Exclusive Categories

What could possible have motivated this guy? It's a mystery we'll never be able to solve:

An escapee from a psychiatric institution slashed a rabbi and his son with a box-cutter on Tuesday, prompting witnesses to tackle and subdue the attacker after a chase through a Paris synagogue, officials said....

The assailant was of Iranian origin, and an official investigation was underway to determine a possible motive....

the assailant screamed “Allah-u-Akbar” — or “God is great” — during the attack.

Hope & Change Veep On Terrorists:

Joe Biden discussed ways terrorists succeed:

"The only way [terrorists] can gain ground is to instill fear that causes us to jettison our values, way of life, for us to change. The moment we change, the moment we look inward, the moment we get into a crouch in a defensive, that's the moment when they win."

When asked how we should confront radical Islam, which is responsible for a majority of all acts of terrorism throughout the world, Joe defensively crouched and shouted, "ISLAM IS THE RELIGION OF PEACE, YOU RACIST ISLAMOPHOBE!"

Fatwa Published 4/21/2013: Sure Akhi, It's OK To Distribute Bomb Making Instructions Via Jihadi Forums
Website Hosted By NJ Company

I guess Samir Khan's "How to make a bomb in the kitchen of your mom" isn't reaching enough jihadis?


On April 21, 2013, the Salafi-jihadi website Minbar Al-Tawhid Wal-Jihad (MTJ) posted a fatwa encouraging the dissemination on jihadi forums of content relating to the manufacture of explosives.

The fatwa, by Sheikh Abu Mundhir Al-Shinqiti, was issued in response to a query by reader "'Omar Al-Dalimi" about the home manufacture of explosives. Claiming to be a member of the Al-Qaeda-affiliated Islamic State of Iraq (ISI), Al-Dalimi asked if he was permitted to publish via "the brothers' forums," that is, jihadi forums, some exclusive content in his possession pertaining to the manufacture of explosives.

Al-Dalimi said that his content was sought after by other forum members for the purpose of jihad, but that he was concerned that if such content was posted openly on jihadi forums, other undesirable members, who he says are Shi'ites, could also access it and benefit from it. Al-Shinqiti responded by encouraging Al-Dalimi to disseminate his content freely over jihadi forums so that the "mujahideen and their supporters everywhere can benefit from it."

It is noteworthy that the MTJ is hosted by Interserver.net, which according to its website is a New Jersey company located at 110 Meadowlands Parkway, Suite 100, Secaucus, NJ 07094. The toll-free office number is 1-877-566-8398, and regular office number 1-201-605-1440.

Following is Al-Dalimi's question, followed by Al-Shinqiti's answer:

Ben Affleck To Eat Like Peons For 5 Whole Days

Oh, the horror! Five days of pure hell to show solidarity with poor people!


The Oscar-winning director recently signed on to participate in the Global Poverty Project's Live Below the Line, a campaign that challenges average (and above-average) people to live on just $1.50 a day for five days. The initiative is meant to simulate what it's like for the 1.4 billion people worldwide who live in extreme poverty.

Eating on $1.50 per day is called a "diet," Ben.

Living on $1.50 a day would mean giving up your $17 million dollar mansion, your sports cars, your country club memberships, your healthcare plans, your home and auto insurance, your housekeepers, your lawn service, and everything else you paid for monthly, quarterly or yearly. Just because you don't physically handle more than $1.50 a day doesn't mean you are living off $1.50 per day.

Canadian VIA Terror Plot: Terror Suspect Chiheb Esseghaier Appears In Court
States Terror Charges Don't Matter, 'Criminal Code' Not Based On Holy Book..

And, he has the prayer bump to prove he is really into the Quran.


It also appears he is really into wanting to kill innocents by detonating a bomb on the trestle linking New York and Ontario at Niagara Falls. In defense of al-Qaeda's brand of Islam, of course:

TORONTO - In a shocking and rambling statement, terror suspect Chiheb Esseghaier told a Toronto court Wednesday morning that he doesn’t recognize the Criminal Code under which he faces five serious charges, including conspiracy to commit murder for the benefit of a terrorist group.

The devout Muslim suggested he is only governed by the “holy book.”

“First of all my comment is the following,” the 30-year-old Montreal PhD student said in his first Toronto appearance. “Because all of those conclusions was taken out based on Criminal Code and all of us we know that this Criminal Code is not holy book, it’s just written by set of creations and the creations they’re not perfect because only the Creator is perfect so if we are basing our judgment ... we cannot rely on the conclusions taken out from these judgments.”[More...]

The 2nd perp, Raed Jaser, is in "a state of disbelief", per his lawyer.

The other suspect, Raed Jaser, 35, appeared briefly in a Toronto courtroom, dressed in a dark dress shirt and wearing a black skullcap.

A publication ban was imposed on proceedings.

Jaser’s lawyer, John Norris, told reporters later that his client was “in a state of shock and disbelief” and planned to defend himself “vigorously” against the charges. Jaser has spent 20 years in Canada and has deep roots in the country, Norris said.

Also, in the above article, it was noted:
The RCMP-led team expects to make more arrests in the alleged terrorist plot. Meanwhile, the CBC is reporting that police and intelligence agencies on both sides of the border were monitoring a “broader network” of suspects beyond the pair arrested on Monday.

FBI Warned Multiple Times About Boston Bomber
Oops, Islamic Emirate of the Caucuses is Designated FTO

First we were told the FBI had been warned about Tamerlan Tsarnaev in 2010. Then we were told that they had been warned a second time in 2012. Now, the Boston Globe is reporting that the FBI had been warned "multiple times". So, more than twice?

Russian authorities contacted the US government with concerns about Tamerlan Tsarnaev not once but “multiple’’ times, including an alert it sent after he was first investigated by FBI agents in Boston, raising new questions about whether the FBI should have paid more attention to the suspected Boston Marathon bomber, US senators briefed on the inves­tigation said Tuesday.
We're also now learning that Tsarnaev was on a flight watch list, but that his watch status had expired by the time he flew back to the US. I'm not sure what the big deal is about this: being on a watch list doesn't mean much other than you get not only the usual hassle by the TSA, but go through secondary and tertiary hassles as well. In other words, being on or off the "watch list" would have done precisely zilch since.

But if the reports about multiple warnings from Moscow pan out, then I'm becoming increasingly sure of my theory about why Tamerlan Tsarnaev was given a pass by the FBI.

It's because the US State Department refuses to list the violent Islamist extremists in Chechnya and Dagestan as "terrorists".

So, the FBI goes to investigate Tsarnaev. That he's linked to websites like the Kavkaz Center or VDagestan. But since The Islamic Emirate of the Caucuses and affiliated groups haven't been designated "terrorists" by State then they FBI has nothing to go on to further the investigation.

By definition Tsarnaev isn't linked to terrorists. Chechen rebels = not terrorist.

This isn't a matter of semantics, it's a matter of law.

The FBI is being truthful when they say they couldn't investigate Tamerlan Tsarnaev further because according to their own definitional guidelines he was not linked to "terrorists".

As far as I can gather, only the leader of the group -- Dokku Umarav -- has been designated a terrorist, but the group itself has not.

So, blame Hillary Clinton for the Boston bombings. It was her State Department, which she led during the period in which the Russians warned us, which failed to designate the Chechen separatists as "terrorists".

UPDATE by Rusty: Oops, it looks like I was wrong here. The Islamic Emirate of the Caucuses has been designated an FTO -- and it was on Hillary's watch that it was done.

So, my initial theory has to be wrong. I'll go ahead an leave the post so I won't be accused of pushing something I said which proved to be wrong down the memory hole.

As I tell my students frequently: being surprised at being wrong is something that happens only to the young or extremely arrogant.

But I can't help but wonder the extent to which the Chechen jihad is on the radar of the FBI? Certainly it will be now, but prior to the Boston bombings? I'm guessing not so much.

I also can't help but wonder the extent to which this designation covers Dagestani rebels? If federal agents would even be aware of the connection between groups operating in Dagestan and in Chechnya?

Ok, so there you have it. I was wrong. I don't expect it will be the last time.

When "Lone Wolf" Terrorists Aren't Alone


There's something ironical about calling two guys working together "lone wolves":

Lawmakers want to increase the powers of the CIA to track “lone wolf” terrorists, like the two brothers suspected as being responsible for last week’s Boston bombing, but they are wary of treading on the jurisdiction of domestic law enforcement.
By definition, two people working together cannot be "lone wolves".

Maybe it's semantics, but inasmuch as our words are tied to our thoughts all concerned should think about the Tsarnaev brothers as an independent terror cell, not "lone wolves".

Nidal Hasan was a lone wolf. He worked alone.

Tamerlan & Dzhokhar Tsarnaev worked together. A small cell, yes. An independent cell, maybe. But a cell nonetheless.

Dzhokhar's Mother: "I Don't Care If He Gets Killed. I Will Say Allahu Akbar!"

This is the problem with fighting religious fanaticism.

In traditional war, both side want to win. At some point, one or both sides decide the cost of war is too great, the losses are too much. It is what keeps countries with weapon's of mass destruction from using them. Because the response is just as destructive as initial assault. Because there are no winners. Both sides will be destroyed rendering the initial strike pointless.

But with religious fanaticism it is different. One side doesn't care if it is destroyed. Its victory and its reward is in its destruction. If they defeat their enemy, they win. If their enemy defeats them, they still win. This is what progressives simply don't understand when they question why Israel can have nuclear weapons, but Iran can't. Because Israel wants to survive. Iran doesn't care if it survives.

The same concept applies when dealing with religious terrorists. They don't care if they die. Death is a reward to them. Killing innocent people has no consequences to them. If they are imprisoned, they will be rewarded in the afterlife. If they are killed, they will reach paradise. They cannot lose. Not in their mind.

From Gateway Pundit:

"If they are going to kill him. I don’t care. My oldest son is killed, so I don’t care. I don’t care if my youngest son is going to be killed today. I want the world to hear this. And, I don’t care if I am going to get killed too. And I will say Allahu Akbar!"

That is the difference between civilized and savage. Civilized parents want their children to live long happy, safe lives. Savage parents don't care.

Terrorists & Family Living Off Welfare

Jizya - A tax on non-Muslims paid for the privilege of living under Islamic rule, which also serves to remind non-Muslims of their inferior status. To refuse to pay meant death. In the West, while pronounced the same, the term is often spelled e-x-t-o-r-t-i-o-n.

from The Boston Herald:

Marathon bombings mastermind Tamerlan Tsarnaev was living on taxpayer-funded state welfare benefits even as he was delving deep into the world of radical anti-American Islamism, the Herald has learned.

State officials confirmed last night that Tsarnaev, slain in a raging gun battle with police last Friday, was receiving benefits along with his wife, Katherine Russell Tsarnaev, and their 3-year-old daughter. [...]

In addition, both of Tsarnaev’s parents received benefits, and accused brother bombers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan were recipients through their parents when they were younger, according to the state.

Fighting Radicals From Inside Islam


Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, author of A Battle for the Soul of Islam, joined Derek Hunter on Tuesday to talk about what creates radical Islamic extremists like the Boston Marathon Bomber
You can listen here or here.

Oh, and, please don't tell me Dr. Jasser is with them. He gets enough bs from the Muslim Brotherhood/CAIR and their apologists,

We need more people like him to fight radical Islam in America. I always hear "why doesn't the Muslim community in America" speak out against terror attacks. Dr Jasser has and does and by doing so he is called 'Uncle Tom of Islam" by CAIR and their apologists including Dem US Senators/Congressman.

Humor me now. When school children are targeted and killed as in Newtown, the dems/libs want to blame NRA and ALL right wing law abiding patriots. .

Radical Islamist set bombs at the Boston Marathon and killed innocents.

Dr Jasser is not a follower of the bombers brand of Islam. Others like him are not followers of the bombers brand of Islam.

He is someone who needs support from more in the Muslim community and especially us.

Please give him a listen.

AP says Twitter account hacked, report of White House explosions false; stocks plunge but quickly recover

Someone is in some serious trouble...

NEW YORK — Hackers compromised Twitter accounts of The Associated Press on Tuesday, sending out a false tweet about an attack at the White House.

The false tweet said there had been two explosions at the White House and that President Barack Obama was injured. The attack on AP's Twitter account and the AP Mobile Twitter account was preceded by phishing attempts on AP's corporate network.

The AP confirmed that its Twitter account had been suspended following a hack and said it was working to correct the issue. The fake tweet went out shortly after 1 p.m.

The Dow Jones industrial average dropped about 150 points after the fake tweet was sent but recovered within minutes.

U.S. Army Orders Removal Of Bible Verses From Scopes


(Hat Tip: Gateway Pundit)

The verses:

6 For God, who said, "Let light shine out of darkness," has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. (2 Corinthians 4:6)

12 When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." (John 8:12)

The actual verses are not on the scopes, just the chapter abbreviation and number. To anyone unfamiliar with the Bible, the references would appear similar to a manufacturer's code or model number.

Insiders say the Bible verses will be replaced with the shahada, "There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is His messenger," which received unanimous approval from Obama Administration. (/s, for those who missed it.)

Well, Duh! Report: Bombers Followed al Qaeda Pressure Cooker Instructions

Stating the obvious: it's just what some people do:

A U.S. official told Fox News that Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, and his brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, built the bombs with instructions from Inspire magazine -- an English-language online magazine published by Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.

The publication is believed to have been started by Samir Khan, a U.S. citizen who moved in 2009 from his family's home in North Carolina to Yemen, where he was later killed in a U.S. drone strike along with Al Qaeda leader Anwar al-Awlaki. The magazine includes articles penned by Khan and others, like "Make a Bomb in the Kitchen of Your Mom."

Call it a confirmation of what I've been saying since, oh, last Tuesday.

On Russians and Chechens

Since I lived in Moscow for a year and Max Lindenman brings this up, let me just say that my own experience of Russian attitudes towards Chechens was very similar. I was there basically at the same time as Max was, and there wasn't a day that went by that I didn't see the police hassling people who looked Chechen, Turkish, or Roma (Gypsy).

And when I say hassling, I mean the overt kind of racism you might have experienced in the South 75 years ago. Not the he gave me a dirty look kind that passes for "racism" these days.

I can't speak to the extent to which that has changed in the past 15 years. Hopefully, for the better.

But the fact that the Chechens might have legitimate grievances does not take away from the fact that The Islamic Emirate of the Caucuses and related groups are terrorists. And if you work for the State Department, you really should keep this in mind the next time you consider who to put on the FTO list.

Libya: French Embassy In Tripoli Hit By VBIED
Update: Video Of Aftermath

One resident stated: "It was a big mistake to site the French embassy in our neighbourhood"

A car bomb has exploded outside the French embassy in the Libyan capital Tripoli, wounding two French guards and several residents.

The blast in Tripoli destroyed the embassy's ground-floor reception area and perimeter wall, as well as damaging neighbouring homes and shops.


French President Francois Hollande called on Libya to act swiftly over this "unacceptable" attack.

It is the first major attack on a foreign embassy in the Libyan capital.

Tuesday's explosion happened shortly after 07:00 (05:00 GMT) in a smart residential area of Tripoli.

One of the embassy's guards was severely injured while the other suffered lighter injuries. Several residents were also slightly hurt.

One young girl suffered a spinal cord injury and was being transferred to neighbouring Tunisia for treatment, her father told the BBC[...]

Many neighbours who gathered in the street to survey the damage were shaken and upset by what had happened, our correspondent says.

They told her that there was a lack of proper policing for such a potentially high-profile target

"It was a big mistake to site the French embassy in our neighbourhood," a local resident said.

I'm sure the jihadi will be caught like those responsible for the Benghazi terror attack were, oh wait...

'In Defense Of Islam'

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is stating he and his brother killed three innocent people and blew the legs off dozens of others to defend Islam.

The surviving Boston Marathon bombing suspect has told investigators that his brother orchestrated the attacks because he 'wanted to defend Islam from attack', it emerged today.

But in scrawled notes made from his hospital bed, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, told Guantanamo Bay interrogators that he and his brother were not linked to any Islamic terrorist groups.

So what was the danger to Islam from an 8 year old Martin Richards? From the young exchange student, Lu Lingzi? From Krystal Campbell? How weak and frail is a religion that needs to kill and mutilate defenseless people to protect itself from mere insults? How justified is Islam to seek out and deliberately target unsuspecting women and children to kill?

After Islamic terrorist attacks, Muslims around the globe are quick to claim Islam does not support killing of innocents, but refuse to define "innocent," which does not apply to non-Muslims according to the Quran. They claim Islam condemns the killing of women and children, while ignoring Hadiths describing how Muhammad, Islam's perfect example, allowed the killing of women and children. They then go on to describe the suffering of Muslims in the West who must endure "Islamophobia" in the form of dirty looks or requests to remove head coverings. Oh, the horror.

Muslims are quick to claim Islamic terrorists are a tiny minority who do not represent the true values of a majority of Muslims, but then go on to hold all Americans accountable for perceived wrongs committed by the military during a war against terrorists who attacked us. It's really the same tactic being used by the left who say, "Don't judge all Muslims by the actions of a few," yet they are happy to blame all NRA members for the action of a few irresponsible, illegal gun owners.

'In defense of Islam' is the ultimate cop-out. It like the fox defending itself by killing the chickens who don't like it because it kills them. A circular logic. Muslims killing non-Muslims for suggesting Islam is violent.

The fact is, Islam doesn't need defending. No more than Christianity or Judaism or Buddhism or Hinduism does. Yet Islam is disproportionately more violent than all of them combined. All mainstream religions hold up against criticism and slurs. Only Islam is unable to stand without resorting to violence.Why? Because it is weak. 'Violence is the last refuge of incompetence.'

Spain Arrests 2 Men Suspected Of Links To Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM)

Nou Mediouni age 23 & Hassan El Jaaouani age 52

Apparently the two were like the Boston Bombers, but weren't like the Boston Bombers because they weren't brothers or from the Caucasus.

Strange explanation of how they were like but not like the Boston Bombers.

The perps were radicalized on the net

Madrid (CNN) -- Spanish police arrested two suspected terrorists with apparent links to an al Qaeda-affiliated group Tuesday but said they had no indication of an imminent attack.

The Interior Ministry identified the suspects as Nou Mediouni, from Algeria, who was arrested in the north-central city of Zaragoza, and Hassan El Jaaouani, from Morocco, who was detained in the southeastern city of Murcia.

Spanish police worked with their counterparts in France and Morocco to carry out the latest arrests, the Interior Ministry statement said.

The statement said the two suspects have a "profile" that is similar to the two suspects in the Boston Marathon attacks.

However, that similarity is based only on how the two suspects in Spain were "radicalized," by going to online forums and chat rooms, and also in the suspects' alleged interest in pulling from the Internet information on bomb-making[Samir Khan's "Directions on How to Make a Bomb in the Kitchen of Your Mom" from AQAP's Inspire magazine. ..ed], said an Interior Ministry spokesman, who by custom is not identified.

The pair, who are from different countries, are not brothers and, unlike the two suspects in the Boston Marathon attacks, have no roots in the Caucasus region, he said.

The two are suspected members of a radical cell close to the terrorist organization al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, the Interior Ministry said.

Became radicalized on the net?

Who woulda thunk.

Update: Googlish

Mediouni[L. above] was regular user of an online forum from which responsible for Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) with which allegedly is linked, recruited people with more radical profiles.

Meanwhile, Jaaouani, 52, was linked with common criminals and now no job.

Like Mediouni, this alleged member of AQIM have been involved with the same responsible for the terrorist organization located in Mali and in charge of recruiting Islamic terrorists in Spain.

came to contact, explains Interior, with one of the people directly related to the kidnapping and murder of two French citizens in January 2011.

If anyone is interested, AQIM's mouthpiece is also on twitter: @Andalus_Media. Apparently the media head had a "news conference' aka Q & A thingy. You can read the questions/answers here[PDF].

Luxury Rehab for Al-Qaeda Terrorists

(Riyadh, Saudi Arabia)

Authorities in Saudi Arabia have opened a luxury resort for jailed Al-Qaeda militants as part of the Gulf kingdom’s plan to turn its citizens away from jihadist activities.

The rehabilitation centre, which features spa treatments, pool tables and a swimming pool, has been opened just outside the capital Riyadh and can accommodate 228 prisoners, AFP reported.

My official observation is that rehabilitation of religious fanatics doesn't work all that well.

Canadian Terror Plot: Chiheb Esseghaier Used Al Qaeda Flag As Avatar For Linkedin

Update on my previous post regarding the major terror plot thwarted in Canada. Chiheb Esseghaier & Raed Jaser planned a terror attack on a rail line between Toronto and NYC.

There was a specific route targeted, not necessarily a specific train, Strachan said, although she declined to reveal the route. According to a Reuters report, U.S. law enforcement and national security sources said the alleged plot targeted a rail line between Toronto and New York City[...]

Police have been investigating since August 2012. International intelligence sources tell CBC News that Canadian law enforcement agencies were ready to shut down the alleged plot and make the arrests months ago.

But partly at the urging of U.S. intelligence agents, the investigation was left open.

Sources said that while the U.S. law enforcement agencies were co-operating in the investigation of the alleged train plot, they also wanted to know who else might be involved.

The CIA has been particularly interested in the al-Qaeda operatives in Iran supporting the alleged terrorist plot in Canada.

Intelligence sources say the Boston Marathon attacks changed everything. It is unclear if that pushed the Americans to urge Canada to shut down the alleged train plot or if it compelled Canadian authorities to simply act on their own.

In the presser today it was noted the perps had received support from elements of al-Qaeda in Iran.. Chiheb appears to really heart al-Qaeda, and not afraid to show it on his Linkedin profile:

Radio-Canada, CBC's French service, has learned that Chiheb Esseghaier studied at University of Sherbrooke, before moving to Institute National de la Recherche Scientifique in Varennes, Que., for doctoral research.

The two men are expected to appear at Old City Hall courthouse in Toronto tomorrow

I saw Chiheb in a group image here, but the page has since went down the memory hole.

CBC cropped the image from the site:


Here is Sasquatch, ooops I mean Chiheb from earlier today:


UPDATE: One of them is from Tunisia and the other from the United Arab Emirates per The Montreal Gazette. That would make Raed Jaser from the UAE as Tunis is mentioned on Chiheb Esseghaier's Linkedin profile.

They were told that one of the suspects is Tunisian and one is from the United Arab Emirates.

The suspects have been in the country legally for a "considerable period of time" but are not Canadian citizens, the RCMP said.

I sure as hell wish some of the media would finally learn what the al-Qaeda flag looks like. This is how it is described in the article:
The page[Linkedin..ed] carries a photo of a black flag inscribed with the Islamic declaration of faith
Shakes head..

FBI Warned of Boston Bomber .... in NOVEMBER
Time to Designate the Chechen Jihadis "Terrorists"

Earlier reports had indicated that the Russians had warned us about Tamerlan Tsarnaev in 2011, that the FBI had investigated, found nothing to link him to terrorism, and then moved on to other matters.

In hindsight, this was obviously a mistake. But hindsight is 20/20, and this has to be understood in the context of the FBI getting tips on thousands of possible Islamic extremists a year.

Yes, I said it: thousands.

The Left and many Muslims are in complete and utter denial about this.

So, I can forgive the FBI for dropping the ball on Tsarnaev. Contrary to popular belief on the extreme fringes, we do not live in a police state. The Feds are not watching every one's emails. And it takes human beings to investigate.

Human beings make mistakes. Maybe someone should be fired. Maybe not.

But if the FBI was notified late last year that Tamerlan Tsarnaev had visited a known extremist mosque in Dagestan and then the FBI did nothing? Didn't investigate. Let him off the hook because he had been cleared the year before?

Well, somebody definitely needs to be fired then.

People are dead. And why?

Was it laziness? He'd been cleared and therefore no need to re-investigate him. Earth to whoever: people change. And not always for the better.

Or was it an insidious PC that the FBI didn't want to offend the sensibilities of Muslims? Our government wouldn't want to appear to be "Islamophobic" now, would it?

Or maybe we have the State Department to blame here? To this day, the State Department refuses to designate the Islamic Emirate of the Caucuses, it's emirs, and it's related branches as Foreign Terrorist Organizations.

And we're not just talking about Obama's State Department, this goes back to the Bush years too.

This despite clear acts of terror by the group and clear ties to al Qaeda.

So, assume the Russians report that Tamerlan Tsarnaev is meeting with terrorists. But the terrorists aren't considered terrorists by the State Department. Would an FBI agent have to pass on investigating further since there was "no relationships with terrorists"?

Simply because the cowards in State refuse to designate a group as "terrorists" doesn't make them any less so. And if federal agents are constrained from doing their jobs because of this, then whoever continues to make the decision to keep the Chechen jihadis off the terror list has blood on their hands.

I know that's a lot of ifs, but isn't it about time to designate the Islamist jihadis fighting in Russia terrorists?


The FBI was alerted by Russia's security services to serious new concerns about one of the Boston bomb suspects as recently as last November....

Tamerlan Tsarnaev had been seen making six visits to a known Islamic militant in a mosque in the Russian republic of Dagestan....

According to a local police official, a case file on Tsarnaev was then handed over to the FBI along with a request for further information. However, the FBI never replied.

Over Kill: Taliban Execute a Spy With A 82mm

Umar Studio, the media arm of Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), released a Pashto-language video titled, "The Caravan of Truth," showing military operations and a suicide bombing in Afghanistan's eastern Logar and Paktia provinces by a TTP affiliated called the "Sa'ad bin Abi Waqas Front". One segment shows the fighters executing a man with a 82mm gun, after which a scene shows them shouting "long live" Mullah Muhammad Omar and Hakimullah Mehsud.

Boston's Longtime Connections to Chechen Jihad

J.M. Berger literally wrote the book on Americans who go to war in the name of Islam. So it's not surprising that he'd be the author of a lengthy piece over at Foreign Policy documenting Boston's connection to the Chechen jihad:

When Boston Marathon runners rounded the bend from Beacon Street last week, they were in the home stretch of the race. As they poured through the closed intersection, they ran past a nondescript address: 510 Commonwealth Avenue.

The location was once home to an international support network that raised funds and recruited fighters for a jihadist insurgency against Russian rule over Chechnya, a region and a conflict that few of the runners had likely ever given any serious thought.

Read the rest.

Only Lawyers and Professors Are This Stupid

In this case, she's both a lawyer and a professor. So, the cards were stacked against anything coming out of her mouth from the get go:

This said, the mortuary pictures of the older brother of the two are extremely disturbing, raising questions as to whether the Boston Police Department captured him with too much force. I understand the explanation offered by Katharine Q. Seelye, William H. Rashbaum, and Michael Cooper. Yet, it does not ring true. A picture is worth a thousand words that will keep our ears ringing as we recoil from this photo. Images have a way of searing themselves into our memory in a way that can’t be undone. We have an emotional memory, not just a rational one that is exemplified by words.

Canada: Major Terror Plot (Perps: Chiheb Esseghaier & Raed Jaser) Thwarted
Bumped: Perps Were Receiving Support From Elements of Al Qaeda In Iran
Targeted U.S. Train

I am hearing NYC may have been one of their targets.


Canadian police and intelligence agencies will announce later today they have thwarted a plot to carry out a major terrorist attack, arresting two suspects in Montreal and Toronto, CBC News has learned.

Highly placed sources tell CBC News the alleged plotters have been under surveillance for more than a year in Quebec and southern Ontario.

The arrests Monday morning were co-ordinated and executed by a special joint task force of RCMP and CSIS anti-terrorism units, combined with provincial and municipal police forces in Ontario and Quebec.

The RCMP are expected to hold a press conference Monday afternoon to announce the arrests and provide details of the alleged plot, and give an overview of the extensive police and intelligence operation.

Law enforcement officials say the terror suspects arrested today have no connection to the two brothers accused of last week's Boston Marathon bombings.

Expect updates

Update: Press conference is still on but this is what we have learned so far

The two suspects in an alleged terror plot in Canada, Chiheb Esseghaier and Raed Jaser, are accused of conspiring to murder people on a VIA train, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police said. The RCMP said that while the suspects had the capacity to carry out an attack, the public was never in imminent danger.
It was previously stated in the presser that this was a al-Qaeda supported plot.

UPDATE: Presser -- The perps were receiving support from elements of al-Qaeda in Iran.

UPDATE by Rusty: The plot was against a train traveling between Toronto and the U.S.

UPDATE by SH: Al-Qaeda in Iran leader is reportedly Muhsin al-Fadhli. Early last year he replaced Yasin al Suri. I guess Suri was bringing to much attention to the group. Ooops

FBI: #BostonBomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev Charged With Using A WMD Resulting In Death
Update: Tsar's 'Bedside' Court Hearing Doc

WASHINGTON—Attorney General Eric Holder announced today that Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, 19, a U.S. citizen and resident of Cambridge, Massachusetts, has been charged with using a weapon of mass destruction against persons and property at the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013, resulting in the death of three people and injuries to more than 200 people.

In a criminal complaint unsealed today in U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts, Tsarnaev is specifically charged with one count of using and conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction (namely, an improvised explosive device, or IED) against persons and property within the United States resulting in death and with one count of malicious destruction of property by means of an explosive device resulting in death. The statutory charges authorize a penalty, upon conviction, of death or imprisonment for life or any term of years. Tsarnaev had his initial court appearance today from his hospital room.

Full Press release below the fold.

Update: "Bedside" court hearing. Here is the transcript of Tsar appearing before a federal magistrate who came to his bedside at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. It was noted the 'probable cause' hearing is scheduled for May 30th at 10:00.

WASHINGTON—Attorney General Eric Holder announced today that Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, 19, a U.S. citizen and resident of Cambridge, Massachusetts, has been charged with using a weapon of mass destruction against persons and property at the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013, resulting in the death of three people and injuries to more than 200 people.

In a criminal complaint unsealed today in U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts, Tsarnaev is specifically charged with one count of using and conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction (namely, an improvised explosive device, or IED) against persons and property within the United States resulting in death and with one count of malicious destruction of property by means of an explosive device resulting in death. The statutory charges authorize a penalty, upon conviction, of death or imprisonment for life or any term of years. Tsarnaev had his initial court appearance today from his hospital room.

“Although our investigation is ongoing, today’s charges bring a successful end to a tragic week for the city of Boston and for our country,” said Attorney General Eric Holder. “Our thoughts and prayers remain with each of the bombing victims and brave law enforcement professionals who lost their lives or suffered serious injuries as a result of this week’s senseless violence. Thanks to the valor of state and local police, the dedication of federal law enforcement and intelligence officials, and the vigilance of members of the public, we’ve once again shown that those who target innocent Americans and attempt to terrorize our cities will not escape from justice. We will hold those who are responsible for these heinous acts accountable to the fullest extent of the law.”

“The events of the past week underscore in stark terms the need for continued vigilance against terrorist threats both at home and abroad,” said John Carlin, Acting Assistant Attorney General for National Security. “Friday’s arrest and today’s charges demonstrate what can be achieved by a collaborative, ‘round-the-clock response involving law enforcement officers, intelligence professionals, prosecutors, and the general public.”

“Today’s charges are the culmination of extraordinary law enforcement coordination and the tireless efforts of so many, including ordinary citizens who became heroes as they responded to the call for help in the hours and days following the Marathon tragedy,” said Carmen Ortiz, U.S. Attorney for the District of Massachusetts. “The impact of these crimes has been far-reaching, affecting a worldwide community that is looking for peace and justice. We hope that this prosecution will bring some small measure of comfort both to the public at large and to the victims and their families that justice will be served. While we will not be able to comment on any possible communications between the suspect and law enforcement at this time, as a general rule, the government will always seek to elicit all the actionable intelligence and information we can from terrorist suspects taken into our custody.”

“The events of this week have moved at a breakneck pace. Yet the one consistent element of this investigation has been the collective efforts of our law enforcement and intelligence partners, working side-by-side, day and night, to identify and find those responsible for this attack, while keeping the public safe,” said Rick DesLauriers, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI’s Boston Division. “We are grateful to the American people for their assistance; we would not be successful without their trust and support. We will continue to investigate this matter with the greatest diligence and expediency, and we will do all that we can to protect those we serve.”

“Friday night’s capture of the suspect brought immediate relief to a community from a public safety viewpoint. However, much work remains and many questions require answers. Today’s charges represent another step on the long road toward justice for the victims of these crimes. On behalf of the citizens of this great commonwealth, the Massachusetts State Police will continue to work diligently with our federal and local partners to bring this defendant to justice for his alleged acts and ensure the public’s safety,” said Colonel Timothy P. Alben, Superintendent of the Massachusetts State Police.

“Finding the alleged perpetrators of this savage act of terrorism four days after the attack on the city of Boston was a herculean effort and shows the true cooperation and dedication of the law enforcement community,” said Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis. “We were relentless in our pursuit of the suspects. The arrest of Tsarnaev and today’s charges should send a clear message to those who look to do us harm, the entire law enforcement community will go after you, find you, and bring you to justice.”

This investigation was conducted by the FBI’s Boston Division, the Boston Police Department, the Massachusetts State Police, and member agencies of the Boston Joint Terrorism Task Force, which is composed of more than 30 federal, state, and local enforcement agencies, including the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives; U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement-Homeland Security Investigations; U.S. Marshals Service; U.S. Secret Service; the Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority; and others. In addition, the Watertown Police Department; the Cambridge Police Department; the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Police Department; the Boston Fire Department; the National Guard; and police, fire, and emergency responders from across Massachusetts and New England played critical roles in the investigation and response.

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys William Weinreb and Aloke Chakravarty from the Anti-Terrorism and National Security Unit of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Massachusetts, with assistance from the Counterterrorism Section of the Justice Department’s National Security Division.

The public is reminded that charges contained in an indictment or criminal complaint are merely allegations and that defendants are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.

Flashback 2011: DHS Secretary Napolitano Says No “Logic” In Profiling Young Muslim Men

From Real Clear Politics via SooperMexican:

"You're not using good logic there. You've got to use actual intelligence that you received. And, so, you might -- all you've given me is a kind of status. You have not given me a technique for tactic or behavior. Something that would suggest somebody is not Muslim, but Islamic, that has actually moved into the category of violent extremists," Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said at a forum on U.S. security and preventing terrorist attacks.

"We have ways to make some of those cuts. And they involve the intel that comes in, the analysis that goes on. For example, we often times, for travelers entering the United States, we won't not do what is called a secondary inspection just because they are a 35-year- old male who appears to be Muslim, whatever that means. But we know from intelligence that if they have a certain travel pattern over a certain period of time, that should cause us to ask some more significant questions than if we don't.

Four people might still be alive and thirty people might still have all their limbs had the Department of Homeland Security used common sense rather than their politically correct "good logic."

The Victims, In Pictures

After the bombs ripped through the crowd at the Boston Marathon, victims were left writhing in pain and agony. So many days have passed it is now easy to forget the immediate suffering in Boston. It is easy to forget the mutilated bodies and the amputated legs and the grotesque, distorted limbs.

Before you allow the horrors of the Boston Marathon terrorist attacks ebb from your memory, take a moment to remind yourselves why so many of us dedicate our time to exposing the vile evil of radical Islam. We are called "Islamophobes" not because we fear Islam or Muslims, but because we dare to expose the horrors it perpetrates on innocent people.

Krystle Campbell did not die quickly or peacefully. In her last moments, her mouth was agape in screams, her legs mangled, and her blood sprayed in pools on the dirty sidewalks. After a several agonizing moments, she was finally quiet. Her eyes rolled back, her life - and her suffering - mercifully ended.

Below the fold are pictures of Krystle Campbell. They are gory, terrible pictures. But they record her last moment on earth and it is important that we, the living, pay our respects by vowing never to forget her suffering.

Hers is not the only story that needs to be remembered. So many others suffered with her. Pictures captured their terrible trauma as well. And before you say "I can't bear to look," consider they had to bear the physical agony. The least we could do is etch their memory and their horrid suffering in our brains so we never, ever forget.

Droned Again: 2 AQAP Mujahid Killed In Central Yemen

Allahu Dronebar!

The US launched a drone strike against al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula today in central Yemen, killing two AQAP operatives. The strike is the third recorded in the country in the past six days.

The remotely piloted Predators or the more deadly Reapers launched several missiles at a compound in the Wadi Abida area of Marib province, Yemeni officials told AFP.

Tribal officials then said that two Yemeni troops and another AQAP fighter were killed during clashes that followed. "A cache of weapons was found at the site" of the strike, according to Reuters.

"The woman, in her early 20s, blew up her explosives as she walked to the main entrance of the hospital. Authorities have found the attackers head and legs and are conducting a detailed investigation," said Sarwar, an assistant political agent in the tribal region.

Officials said the bomber apparently targeted security men guarding the hospital.

Hospital officials said four other people were also injured in the bombing.

Agency health officer, Mohd Riaz, said the dead included one security personnel and two civilians, while one of the dead was a hospital worker.

Dagestan: Mujahideen Of The Caucases Emirate: We Weren't Behind #BostonBombing
We Don't Kill Innocents?

Caucases Mouthpiece, Kavkaz Center, deflecting this by showing image of Hamas

A jihadi forum carried this:

New statement from Wilayah Dagestan of the Caucasus Emirate: “In Relation to Events in Boston”

After the events in Boston, the US, information has been distributed in the press saying that one of the Tsarnaev brothers spent 6 months in Dagestan in 2012. On this basis, there are speculative assumptions that he may have been associated with the Mujahideen of the Caucasus Emirate, in particular with the Mujahideen of Dagestan.

The Command of the Province of Dagestan indicates in this regard that the Caucasian Mujahideen are not fighting against the United States of America[they have fought in other theaters such as Afghanistan, against Americans..ed]. We are at war with Russia, which is not only responsible for the occupation of the Caucasus, but also for heinous crimes against Muslims.

Also, remember that even in respect to the enemy state of Russia, which is fighting the Caucasus Emirate, there is an order by the Emir Dokku Umarov, which prohibits strikes on civilian targets.[See video below..ed]

In this regard, the Command of the Mujahideen of the Province of Dagestan urges the media, primarily the American, to halt speculations and promotion of Russian propaganda.

If the US government is really interested in establishing the true organizers of Boston bombings, and not in complicity with the Russian show, it should focus on the involvement of Russian security services in the events.

Command of the Mujahideen of the Caucasus Emirate Province of Dagestan

As an example, the families of these children would heartily disagree with his statement about strikes against civilians. Dr Zuhdi Jasser, whom I just did a previous post on, narrates this:

FBI--2011 Request for Information on Tamerlan Tsarnaev from Foreign Government

Yesterday's Cover our arses are we? Press release from the FBI regarding Boston Bomber #1

Washington, D.C. April 19, 2013

FBI National Press Office (202) 324-3691

The two individuals believed to be responsible for the Boston Marathon bombings on Monday have been positively identified as Tamerlan Tsarnaev, now deceased, and Dzhokar Tsarnaev, now in custody. These individuals are brothers and residents of Massachusetts. Tamerlan Tsarnaev was a legal permanent resident and Dzhokar Tsarnaev is a naturalized U.S. citizen. Charges have not yet been filed against Dzhokar Tsarnaev and he is presumed innocent.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev, age 26, was previously designated as Suspect 1, wearing a black hat. Dzhokar A. Tsarnaev, age 19, was designated as Suspect 2, wearing a white hat. Both were born in Kyrgyzstan.

Once the FBI learned the identities of the two brothers today, the FBI reviewed its records and determined that in early 2011, a foreign government asked the FBI for information about Tamerlan Tsarnaev. The request stated that it was based on information that he was a follower of radical Islam and a strong believer, and that he had changed drastically since 2010 as he prepared to leave the United States for travel to the country’s region to join unspecified underground groups.

In response to this 2011 request, the FBI checked U.S. government databases and other information to look for such things as derogatory telephone communications, possible use of online sites associated with the promotion of radical activity, associations with other persons of interest, travel history and plans, and education history. The FBI also interviewed Tamerlan Tsarnaev and family members. The FBI did not find any terrorism activity, domestic or foreign, and those results were provided to the foreign government in the summer of 2011. The FBI requested but did not receive more specific or additional information from the foreign government.

Jihad Tube would have been a good start and a site to keep ones eye on, just sayin.

From Rusty's previous post on this:

Also, the discussion of his YouTube account as evidence of radicalization seems to be focused on videos of the Australian extremist preacher Feizal Muhammad or to the "Black flags of Khorasan" prophecy video.

Ok, both are indications of some radical tendencies.

But what is being overlooked here is that he had a playlist called "terrorists". But because the playlist seems empty, people are ignoring what was in it. I couldn't find the video, "Амир Раббаникалы Абу Дуджана - Обращение к ополченцам", which was placed in the playlist twice.

But here's an image. A picture, as they say, is worth a thousand words.


I'd say that about sums it up.

UPDATE: Oh yeah, the video above is about Abu Dujana, an Islamist rebel killed in 2012 in ..... Dagastan.

Ft Hood: Work Place Violence
Benghazi: Mohammed Video.

Nuff said.

Update: What the FBI reported certainly doesn't coincide with what these women, who knew him when he was in college. They stated he changed in 2008. The FBI interviewed family members only in 2011?

I guess he slipped off their radar or something.

The Capture Of #BostonBomber #2, Dzhokar Tsarnaev: How It All Went Down

Excellent photo/video essay of the event leading up to the capture of the terrorist in the land locked boat

In case you’re wondering, here’s the blow-by-blow about how Boston’s finest and bravest eventually snagged Dzhokar Tsarnaev, one of the two terrorists responsible for the Boston bombing.

1. A Boston resident named David Henneberry stepped outside of his house for some fresh air around 5:45, after authorities had permitted residents to do so. Looking at his boat, he noticed that the tarp had been lifted and a strap had been cut.


Besides our finest and bravest, Kudos also go to Mr Henneberry's keen observation that led up to this bitches capture.

My favorite photo, besides the on the ground bitch/in the ambulance, is this:

Boston Bomber #1, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, Described As Controlling, Manipulative

He would call his girlfriend a "slut and a prostitute". Not surprising, as Islamists view non-believing females, especially Americans, as sluts and prostitutes.


Laura Sullivan tells Robert Siegel that she has been learning more about the older suspect, Tamerlan Tsarnaev. She's been talking with three women who knew him when they were in college — and they paint a dark picture.

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. 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.

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

[Listen to it all here]

Me thinks Tamerlan Tsarnaev was the true prostitute and really ghey:


I will end with "Gunfight at the Shrink-Wrapped Boat," starring Tamerlan's Bro:

Hagel: Gee, I Guess We Won't Deactivate NYC's ONLY Weapons of Mass Destruction-Civil Support Team Now

"Make the sequester hurt" hit's a hurdle after terrorism in Boston

Ya think?

The only U.S. military team assigned to New York City to support first responders in case of a disaster will remain on duty. It was just saved on the brink of elimination.

fthamilton.jpgA day after the bombings at the Boston Marathon, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel rescinded his decision to disband the rapid-response unit based at Fort Hamilton in Brooklyn.

His abrupt change of mind was a relief to New Yorkers amid the sudden new concerns about terrorism. During testimony on Capitol Hill, Mr. Hagel announced that the Pentagon won't deactivate the 24th National Guard Weapons of Mass Destruction-Civil Support Team (WMD-CST)[...]

WMD-CSTs are trained to provide rapid military support to civil authorities in the event of a chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear threat.

Mr. Hagel acknowledged that his reversal on funding the pair of units in New York and Florida means they will not become the victims of federal cost-cutting[...]

"The 24th National Guard WMD-CST team has done exceptional job, not just in New York, but also in Boston, where they were on the ground responding to the horrific attack on the marathon," Mr. Grimm said. "This week's events have reminded us that we must remain vigilant, and this elite team assists that effort." [More..]

Wake up call to those still living in a pre-9/11 bubble, again.

Surviving Boston Bomber May Have Killed Brother

Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev not only left his brother after a gunfight with police, he actually ran over his injured brother:

So much for honor among Jihadists.

Update by SH: Watertown Police Chief Edward Deveau gave more details Saturday about brotherly love by tread marks

“[Tamerlan] all of a sudden comes out from under cover and just starts walking down the street, shooting at our police officers, trying to get closer,” Deveau said. “Now, my closest officer is five to 10 feet away, and they’re exchanging gunfire between them. And he runs out of ammunition — the bad guy — and so one of my police officers comes off the side and tackles him in the street.

“We’re trying to get him handcuffed. There’s two or three police officers handcuffing him in the street — the older brother. At the same time, at the last minute — they obviously have tunnel vision, it’s a very, very stressful situation — one of them yells out, ‘Look out!’ and here comes the black SUV, the carjacked car, directly at them. They dive out of the way, and he (the younger brother) drives over his brother and drags him a short distance down the street.”

Gee, that had to have hurt real bad, emotionally and physically, to have your own bro do that to you.

Oh well.

No Miranda Rights for the Boston Bomber

For Now

An indication of the complex investigation ahead came Friday night, when an Obama administration official told NBC News that Tsarnaev would not be given a Miranda warning when he is physically able to be interrogated after receiving medical treatment.

Instead, the official said, the government will invoke a legal rule known as the "public safety exception," which will enable investigators to question Tsarnaev without first advising him of his right to remain silent and to be afforded legal counsel.

The exemption can be invoked when information is needed to protect public safety. In this instance, the government believes it's vital to find out if Tsarnaev planted any other explosives before his capture or whether others might have plotted with him to do so, said the official, speaking on condition of anonymity.

Boy is the left going to be pissed.....comedy gold.

Breaking: Gunshots in Watertown
UPDATE: Boston Bomber #2 Is In Custody!

I'm watching this live. Could this be the end? Let's hope so.


UPDATE: Shots still being fired as we speak. Multiple shots heard......

UPDATE: Ambulance on the way. Speculation that suspect is down.

UPDATE: Boston's Fox 25 scrolling "2nd Suspect is Down on Franklin St" on screen.

UPDATE: A woman noticed blood on her boat, called the cops. Shootout happened when police arrived to investigate.

EOD is on the scene with a robot, presumably to go into the boat and see if there's a bomb in there.

UPDATE: I know the impulse is to pray that he's dead. Don't. Pray that he's alive. Dean men tell no tales.

UPDATE: Wow, Google Earth pays off. Here's the boat at 67 Franklins St. in Watertown. Looks like they don't move it much.


UPDATE: "Refusing to come out of boat". The worry is he has an IED on him. His brother did.

UPDATE: Robot approaching boat......

UPDATE: Possible flashbang grenades ..... series of 8 explosion sounds reported.

UPDATE by SH: He is in custody! CONFIRMED

Well done all capturing him alive

WATERTOWN — The man that police believe is responsible for placing the bombs that struck the Boston Marathon on Monday, killing 3 and injuring more than 170, is in custody after a standoff lasting nearly two hours in Watertown.

Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, 19, was taken into custody shortly before 8:45 p.m.

“They got him. He’s in custody,” a state trooper told the media gathered in the neighborhood. A crowd of onlookers broke into applause.

Tsarnaev had been pinned down in a boat in the backyard of a home in Watertown, just outside the city. He was rushed to a local hospital.

Thank God this ended this way.

Update by SH: Clarification at news conference concerning how he was found. A man called the Watertown PD after seeing him in his boat and stating he was full of blood. A police chopper used thermal imaging to verify he was indeed in the boat.

New Boston Bomber Search Thread
Pressure Cooker Bomb Thrown at Cops
An International Connection?
FBI Interviewed 2 Yrs Ago!

The last post was getting too long, so here's a new one.

Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev is still on the loose. Lot's of rumors, but not much solid.

One thing I just saw on Boston's CBS local station is that the so-called "grenade" thrown at the police officer last night was really another pressure cooker bomb.

So, he chucked the pressure cooker bomb at the police during last niight's shoot out, and it goes off. Only, the lid pops off when it hits the ground so there's not much of a concussive force.

In other words, it was a dud.

Which explains the mystery of the "grenades" which never were. It ain't easy to get a live grenade.

I'm also guessing that the so-called "explosive vest" will turn out to be ... something else. An explosive vest? Really? Packed with .... what? C-4?

These guys clearly followed the directions on How to Make a Bomb in the Kitchen of Your Mom from AQAP's Inspire magazine. A suicide vest isn't as easy to make.

So, I'm skeptical on that claim, too.

We'll put any updates below.

Update by Vinnie NBC News just tweeted:


No real confirmation on that though. No link at the NBC News website.

UPDATE by Rusty: It kinda sounds like the "IEDs" found were strapped to the now deceased Tsarnaev's chest. So, smaller pipe bombs?

Recall that the Inspire instructions for making the pressure cooker bomb also showed how to use pipes.

Here's an image.


Just seems to make more sense than these guys having C-4 or something similar.

Also, I keep erroneously calling the Inspire article "Basement of Your Mom" instead of the correct "Kitchen of Your Mom". It's a Freud thing. I used to make fun of Samir Khan for living in his mom's basement. In return, he threatened to kill me. Good times. Good times.

Update by SH Boston Globe tweeted

In Watertown brothers in firefight with police; MSP found 200 spent rounds, evidence of homemade bombs, pipe bombs and a pressure cooker
Which comes back to what Rusty reported.

UPDATE by Rusty: The timing of the Elder Tsarnaev "radicalization" seems to have coincided with his return from Russia. Notice that his YouTube account featuring extremist videos was made a month after he got back from his six month trip to the Motherland.

Kind of makes you wonder what he was up to while visiting ol' daddy (my son was framed!), doesn't it?

Also, the discussion of his YouTube account as evidence of radicalization seems to be focused on videos of the Australian extremist preacher Feizal Muhammad or to the "Black flags of Khorasan" prophecy video.

Ok, both are indications of some radical tendencies.

But what is being overlooked here is that he had a playlist called "terrorists". But because the playlist seems empty, people are ignoring what was in it. I couldn't find the video, "Амир Раббаникалы Абу Дуджана - Обращение к ополченцам", which was placed in the playlist twice.

But here's an image. A picture, as they say, is worth a thousand words.


I'd say that about sums it up.

UPDATE: Oh yeah, the video above is about Abu Dujana, an Islamist rebel killed in 2012 in ..... Dagastan.

Where is Papa Tsarnaev living and where, presumably, did Tamerlan go to visit his father last year? Hint: it's not "Russia" as is being widely reported:

father, spoke with international media from his home, in the Dagestan capital of Makhachkala
It appears we have a bit more of our answer.

Dagestan is basically next door to Chechnya, and although both are part of the "Russian Federation" they're really not "Russian".

So, in sum:
1) Tamerlan Tsarnaev goes to visit his Dad in Dagestan last year and is gone for six months.
2) A month after returning home he opens a YouTube account adding a video of a dead Dagestani terrorist.

Up until this point I was inclined to theorize self-radicalization online. But now? Not so much.

Certainly they got their instructions for making their bombs through Inspire magazine, which is published in English. But you know what? The magazine has been translated into Russian and the Dagestani jihadis have links at their website to Russian language Inspire magazine translations.

I think we need to start looking for those international connections. They may just be there.

UPDATE: It looks like the FBI interviewed Tamerlan two years ago ... at the request of a foreign government. [Update by SH: Link to CBS report here]

AllahP speculates that it was the Russians. If the Russians wanted him interviewed, then doesn't that seem to indicate that his trip to Dagestan is key here?

Boston Bomber Dead, Boston Locked Down as Manhunt Continues, Updates

Bumped, scroll for newer posts Breaking now... one police officer is dead ....dark hat in the video released by the FBI is dead....white hat is on the loose in an area of Boston....shootouts have taken place, they were using hand grenades against the cops.

Update: Matt Damon... Suspects are two brothers, Chechens.

Updates JN: The Tsarnaev brothers robbed a 7-11 on the MIT campus at 10:20. A MIT University officer Sean Collier was found by police shot in his car minutes later and died in the hospital, ABC reported.

They carjacked an SUV at 11:00 pm. At 1:00 am, police find the men in the car and there is a shoot-out where the brothers also throw explosives and the older brother, Tamerlan, is killed. The younger Dzhokhar apparently escapes. ( Watch video of Boston firefight at Pat Dollard.) Residents throughout Boston are advised to shelter in place (see notice taped to doors overnight) Officials said they believe Dzhokhar Tsarnaev may be strapped with explosives.

WaPo Authorities shot and killed one suspect in Monday’s Boston Marathon bombings and were conducting a massive hunt for a second suspect in Watertown, Mass., Friday morning following a chaotic night that left one police officer dead and another critically wounded in the Boston suburbs.

The suspects — introduced to the world via photos and video footage Thursday night — are brothers, law enforcement officials said Friday morning. The one still at large was identified by law enforcement authorities as Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, 19, of Cambridge.

Russian journalist @aavst reporting that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev,19, was born in Chechen capital of Grozny, attended school in Dagestan before coming to US (via @BlakeHounshell) The family moved to Russia's Dagestan from Kyrgyzstan in 2001.

Via Good Lt: The older and now deceased brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev subscribed to "Allah is the One" YouTube channel 2 months ago. Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, was a boxer ( photos). The MIT police officer killed was 26.

8:35 am EST Police surrounding house in Watertown, gunfire and explosions heard. 9:00 am Shooting has ended at the scene in Watertown.

Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, as seen in new FBI photo:


2:30 pm: ABC reporting a Black Hawk Helicopter has landed at Dartmouth University where Dzhokhar Tsarnaev attended school. All universities in Boston were evacuated and closed earlier.

UPDATE By DMartyr: Dead suspect killed by gunshot and blast injuries. Rest in pieces.

UPDATE by Rusty: Looking at Tamerlan Tsarnaev's YouTube account one thing becomes very clear: these guys are radical Islamists.

First clue? Has a playlist entitled "Terrorists". The videos have been taken down, but the links and titles remain. They are videos of "Emir Abu Duzhana", formerly of The Islamic Emirate of the Cuacuses -- the al Qaeda affiliate in Chechnya.

UPDATE by Rusty: The vk.com website allegedly belonging to Dzhokhar is fake. VK -- or V'Kontakte -- is the Russian equivalent of Facebook. I happen to speak Russian and spent a year in college there, so I have a VK account, so I was able to check the veracity of the claims myself.

The first clue? Well, his last update was, um, today.

UPDATE by Rusty: The related twitter account also looks like a hoax.

At a news conference the Boston PD just clarified that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is still at large.

UPDATE by Rusty: Watching the friends and relatives interviewed I can't help but wonder: Are these people stupid?

The common response is something like, "He was such a nice guy. I can't believe he's a terrorist!"

People, if you think terrorists are "mean" or "loud" you watch too much TV. Homicidal killers are just like you and me. Nice most of the time.

They aren't louder than you and I. They don't necessarily spout off on every little thing.

They don't walk around stealing candy from babies, wheelchairs from the disabled, and abusing animals.

You ever watched a video of Osama bin Laden? He's pretty soft spoken.

Murderers and terrorists don't have a "vibe". There is no equivalent of the "gaydar" that will let your spidey-senses pick up on a potential terrorist.

Evil is mundane. It is banal. It comes in all shapes and sizes.

The day you realize this is the day you'll cease to be surprised when the nice guy next door turns out to be a terrorist.

UPDATE by Rusty: It looks like this is Dzhokhar Tsarnaev real twitter account.

Interesting enough, he tweeted after the bombings. Including, "LOL those people are cooked." Classy.

On a sidenote, the Kavkaz Center -- which is the voice of the Chechen jihad -- seems to have taken the line that the two brothers are terrorists and that what they did is a bad thing.

Why murdering a bunch of Russian kids is a good thing and killing a few American infidels is a bad thing they don't bother to explain.

UPDATE by Rusty: Still on the loose. I'm watching the latest presser and .... no new information.

But we do have word that there is a third suspect in custody who might have some connection, if not to the bombing then to the planning of the bombing.

I know this is probably obvious, but looking at Dzhokhar's Twitter account, I can't but help get the feeling that the two thought he could get away with it.

The casualness of the tweets. The fact that they came after the bombing. The other explosive devices.

Did this pair have a long term plan to spread terror? That's what my gut says.

Like I said, it's obvious, but I thought I'd throw that out there.

Oh my: As I wrote that I was watching the Boston CBS local affiliate and they just reported that one of the two brothers (don't know which one, I'll look that up ---UPDATE: Yup, it was Dzhokhar, the one brother still on the loose) went back to UMass Dartmouth after the bombing. That his friends saw him there as late as Wednesday.

So, it sounds to me like they thought they were going to get away with it ... and that they had gotten away with it.

Update by SH: Apparently 'Jahar', the terrorist on the run, is a 9/11 truther.


Note: He became a naturalized US citizen Nov. 12th of last year, 11 days after the above tweet.

Bomber's Father: All Hell Will Break Loose If Son Is Killed

From ABC via Breitbart (emphasis mine):

Anzor Tsarnaev spoke to ABC News from his home in the Russian city of Makhachkala as Boston police carried out an intense dragnet for his son Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. [...]

The elder Tsarnaev insisted that his sons were innocent, but said he would appeal to his son to "surrender peacefully."

"Give up. Give up. You have a bright future ahead of you. Come home to Russia," the dad said.

The father warned, however, "If they killed him, then all hell would break loose."

Leftist Media Begins Lamenting Muslim Victimization

Because Muslims are the real victims when Islamic terrorists kill non-Muslim civilians...

From RawStory:

US Muslims are “holding their breath” as the investigation into the Boston Marathon attacks develops, amid fears of increased racial profiling and attacks if an Islamic link is confirmed, according to advocate groups.

From Huffpo:

A Muslim woman wearing a hijab said she was attacked in the Boston area by a man who shouted that Muslims had perpetrated the twin bombings that killed three people and wounded about 170 Monday.

From BBC:

As the investigation into who was behind the Boston bombings goes on, Muslim communities are braced for a backlash should the perpetrator share their faith.

In their mind, giving a woman in a hijab a dirty look is just as bad as blowing the legs off innocent children...

Video & Photos of Boston Marathon Bombing Suspects
Updates below the fold

The FBI has released a video of the main suspects in the Boston Marathon Bombing.

The FBI is asking for any information the public might have as to the identity or whereabouts of the suspect.

Here is the video

Developing, expect updates.

UPDATE: White cap is the one suspected of planting a device, but both are suspected of working together. The FBI has posted 11 images from the surveillance video. I grabbed them before their website melted down and have posted them below.

White Cap

Black Cap

On a totally unrelated note: Did you notice that Infowars had a mic at the press conference? Who was the idiot who gave them press credentials? (HT:@intelwire)

Nine other images of the two suspects below. UPDATE: Please do not hotlink the images (unless you are on an mu.nu or .minx server). Feel free to grab the images, but if you're going to republish them please re-upload them to your own server. Thanks.

Update by SH: Words escape me. [Update - Note: Vinnie reminded me and I also had read previously ( and posted on) that the little boy and his family were running away from the first bomb and he was killed by the second bomb]


Update by SH: Higher resolution of suspect #2 via NYTimes Lede Blog here. He is on the far left by the corner of the building.

In an interview late Thursday, Mr. Green, who runs a sportswear company in Florida, confirmed that the picture was genuine, and that the F.B.I. had contacted him and requested a copy. “I have spoken to several agents,” Mr. Green said, “and they have got the photos, they are picking up material from me, and I don’t think there’s any doubt.” Mr. Green said he took the photo at 2:50:15 p.m. on Monday.[More..]

Arab Spring! Dirty Dancing Edition


Hardline Islamists threw stones and bottles at young women in a student hostel in Tunis to stop them staging a performance of dance and music, witnesses said on Thursday, in another blow to secular freedoms in the country that spawned the Arab Spring.

Female university students housed at the Bardo district hostel in the capital were just starting a weekly show of dance and music on Wednesday evening when dozens of hardline Salafists broke into the premises after scaling its walls, witnesses said.

"They smashed windows on our building and threw stones and bottles at the students, stopping the performance," said Rim Nsairi, one of the students, who are aged 19 to 24.

Contrary to reports the Salafis didn't care about the dirty dancing. They decided to riot when one of the sisters kept playing She's Like the Wind over and over and over.

Who can blame them?

Members Of Congress Shocked By PA TV Hate, Send Protest Letter To Abbas

Kudos to them but let's defund the bitches. Abbas knows full well about the anti-Semitic/terror programs Pali TV airs.

Palestinian Media Watch recently exposed the PA TV broadcast of a girl reciting a poem that referred to Jews as "enemies of Allah, descendants of pigs." Three members of the US Congress, Doug Lamborn, Eliot L. Engel, and Trent Franks responded by writing a public letter to PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas. The letter opened with the following words:
“We are writing to express our grave dismay and deep concern over the recent broadcast of a children’s program on Palestinian Television which included rabid incitement against the State of Israel and the Jewish people.” (The letter follows in full below.)
PMW also notes that Facebook last week returned the post to PMW's Facebook page that exposed this same PA TV video that the Congressmen criticized. Facebook had removed it, writing to PMW that it violated Facebook’s guidelines, which stipulate that "you will not post content that is hate speech." After it was clarified to Facebook that PMW exposed the PA’s hate speech and was not promoting it, Facebook put the original post back on PMW's page. YouTube also removed the video as “hate speech” and likewise returned it the next day. PMW thanks all our readers who contacted YouTube and Facebook protesting the removals.

The following is the letter to PA chairman Abbas from the Members of US Congress:

Sorry state of affairs when only three members of Congress complained to Abbas. Where are the rest?

Jordanian Journalist: The Juice & The Right Wingers Are Behind The Boston Bombing Just As They Were Behind 9/11


In an article titled "The Boston Explosions – Look For Jews" on the Jordanian website Ammon News, Palestinian-born Jordanian journalist As'ad Al-'Azouni, known for his antisemitic articles, wrote that the Jews and the "American right" were behind the recent Boston bombing, just as they had been behind the attacks of 9/11. He claimed that the bombing was meant to prevent U.S. President Barack Obama from discharging his second term in office in peace.

Al-'Azouni, several of whose articles have been translated and published by MEMRI, was recently fired from the Jordanian daily Al-Arab Al-Yawm for writing an article in which he blamed the Jews for all the wars, plots, and corruption in the world. [1] Following his dismissal, he wrote that it was MEMRI's publication of this article that had caused him to lose his job.[2]

The following are excerpts from his article on the Boston bombing:[3]


"It has been known for quite some time that the U.S. is at the epicenter of a Jewish plan to harm it by removing it from its throne as the world's only superpower – [a move that is] in accordance with the exploitative Jewish approach. [America's] fate will be no better than that of Great Britain, the womb from which Israel emerged. Nor will the Arab states that allowed the establishment of Israel be saved from the Jewish plan to annihilate them.

"Britain is the superpower that violated all laws, both natural and man-made, when it established Israel in order to rid itself of the Jews and create an English-Christian state purged of Jews. But after they grew strong in Palestine by emigrating [there], they expelled the British from Palestine, seeing [Britain] as an occupying state. And now they are destroying the Arab regimes that supported them.

"They [the Jews] made an alliance with the Nazi Hitler, who is considered to be the first Western leader who promised Palestine to them. They agreed to hand over the old and sick Jews, to be disposed of as Hitler saw fit, and in return, he allowed them to send the young Jews to Palestine. I do not know if [Hitler] did this knowingly, or was misled by the Jews, because after the war the Jews looted Germany on the grounds that Hitler had burned the Jews…

[Read the rest]

Gee, I thought Islamists wanted the world to be ruled by the Koran.

Psychological projection is Al-'Azouni best friend.

Starts off well

Samir Khan, was a Pakistani-American citizen killed in Yemen in 2011. He was just 25 years old. Samir Khan was killed by an American drone. His death has been a hot topic of debate regarding how we capture and kill American terrorists abroad.

Samir’s article teaches a rookie bomb-maker not to forecast the results or consequences, and that all the person has to do is make the device and detonate it. The “trial” will result in the “highest level of Paradise.”

But then....
Because of the lack of information at this stage, my only thought is this attack was that of a lone ranger.
Lone Ranger?

*Don't you really mean pasty white right wing extremist vigilante?

*oh come on, joke em if they can't take a you know.

Joe Biden Worries About 'Black Trucks' Selling Guns To 4th Graders

From Red Alert Politics:

The illegal transfer of guns is a widespread problem, according to Vice President Joe Biden, so widespread that "every neighborhood in every major city" has easy access to illegal guns, he claimed. [...]

[T]he Vice President described a conversation between a teacher and her class, during which the teacher asked her students where they could buy a gun. One student responded that he would show her the black truck outside.

"Every neighborhood in every major city has the equivalent of a black truck," he said.

Uh, Joe, those black trucks are not selling guns. They are with the Secret Service and they are there to protect you:

OMG! My Zombie Defense Kit seems so incomplete now!

Strange Very Strange Indeed

Reports yesterday that a suspect in the Boston Bombing had been arrested and reports that a Saudi Student, previously declared to be cleared, is being deported raises a few eyebrows to say the least.

An expert on terrorism says the Saudi national who was the original “person of interest” in connection with Monday’s Boston Marathon bombing is going to be deported from the U.S. next week.

The foreign student from Revere, Mass., is identified as 20-year-old Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi.

“I just learned from my own sources that he is now going to be deported on national security grounds next Tuesday, which is very unusual,” Steve Emerson of the Investigative Project on Terrorism told Sean Hannity of Fox News Wednesday night.

Nothing on IPT site, so I would think if Emerson was really onto it, he'd run a post? Along with the reports of a non-arrest yesterday if nothing else it sure does smell kinda fishy.

Before And After Photos Of Suspicious Package (Updated & Bumped)

Yesterday, I posted pictures of what several news media outlets claimed were of the second bomb. They showed a very suspicious package beside a mailbox. (Scroll down below fold to view them.)

My contention is that the package was not the bomb, and that news sites, including Breitbart, were irresponsible for not doing even the most basic investigation to determine accuracy of the reporting.

To add to my response, I found these photographs of the second explosion. The first image is the actual explosion. The second image, taken from the opposite end of the street, shows smoke plume immediately after the explosion:



Click on either image to enlarge in a new window.

As you can clearly see from the pictures (and the video), the blast was behind the metal barricades and not by the street where the suspicious package was located.

The 'before and after' pictures the media is claiming shows the bomb is, at best, sloppiness by the media or, at worst, as Moshe says, the media attempting to create news. Professional journalists should be embarrassed that bloggers with no formal journalism or investigative training are able to present news more accurately than they do.

-------------Original Post Below-----------------

Click image to open an enlarged version in a new window.


Several news sites are carrying this as though it's a huge clue. After only a few seconds of examination, Vinnie and I were able to spot a few inconsistencies.

First, the bag is still there. It has just been blurred. For some reason, Breitbart, Fox and others are using a more blurred image that completely, and perhaps, deliberately obscures the bag.

Second, the metal railing is wrapped around the mailbox indicating the blast originated behind the fence, not in front of it. Had the package been the bomb, the barricade would have, no doubt, been blown back toward the crowd.

Third, the sign on the street post to the left is bent outward, toward the street. If the blast had come from the package, it should have been bent directly to the left, parallel with the street.

It should also be pointed out that the FBI has located at least one black backpack used to hide the bombs. This package does not fit that evidence.

I just don't see this package being significant. All indications, imo, suggest the bomb was near the base of the tree and on the other side of the fence. We need an uncensored image to be certain.

Below the fold I have marked these points, in case anyone is having difficulty seeing them.

Breaking: Arrest Made in Boston Marathon Massacre

Stop the press:

An arrest has been made in the Boston bombings investigation based on two videos showing images of the suspect, a federal law enforcement source told CNN's Fran Townsend.
The arrest was federal. Why significant? Because Mass doesn't have the death penalty. The feds do.

Updates to come .....

Update by Howie: Stand by reports of arrest, no arrest, three arrests or twelve arrests. Pick one and wait.

Stand by...

Boston Globe reporting one arrest, live feed of courthouse here.

Boston Police tweet no arrest.

FBI also releases presser saying.

Contrary to widespread reporting, no arrest has been made in connection with the Boston Marathon attack. Over the past day and a half, there have been a number of press reports based on information from unofficial sources that has been inaccurate. Since these stories often have unintended consequences, we ask the media, particularly at this early stage of the investigation, to exercise caution and attempt to verify information through appropriate official channels before reporting.
Also since there is no one in custody, it's kind of a bad idea to crowd around the courthouse and make yourself a potential target, no?

Besides they won't be marching him through the front door past that crowd.

Update: Courthouse being evacuated. Unknown if for threat or just to clear the crowd.. Bomb squad arrives.

Last update: These aren't the droids we're looking for. Move along. Move along.

However there is a presser scheduled for 5:00 Eastern. Maybe one of the other bloggers will have something then. Howie is done for the day.

CNN: "Pressure Cooker Bombs Signature Of Right-Wing Extremists"

The idiots at CNN then go on to equate pressure cooker bombs with pipe bombs to make their point:

Such a formula is certainly not unique to AQAP. Variations appear all over the Internet. A senior U.S. counterterrorism investigator told CNN that pressure cooker bombs have also been a signature of extreme right-wing individuals in the United States who he said tend to revel in building homemade bombs.

For example, the devices planted by Erich Rudolph at an Atlanta park during the 1996 Olympic Games were pipe bombs filled with gunpowder and nails to increase their lethality; it also had an alarm clock as a timing mechanism. Like the bombings in Boston, those devices were concealed in a backpack, according to a Department of Homeland Security report detailing the 1996 attack.

Without exposing themselves to accusations of "racism" or "Islamophobia," CNN carefully treads around "lone wolf" incidents involving similar bombing components, such as backpacks and timers. Apparently, all these things prove right-wings extremists may be behind the bombing, despite the many coincidental Islamists using "Inspire" recipes.

Race Baiting Retard of the Day

David Sirota sure hopes that the Boston Bomber turns out the be a white dude, because, you know, rayyycyyystssttss!

Let’s hope the Boston Marathon bomber is a white American

There is a double standard: White terrorists are dealt with as lone wolves, Islamists are existential threats

the dynamics of privilege will undoubtedly influence the nation’s collective reaction to the attacks. That’s because privilege tends to determine: 1) which groups are — and are not — collectively denigrated or targeted for the unlawful actions of individuals; and 2) how big and politically game-changing the overall reaction ends up being.

Puke..... Oddly enough a number of Islamist terrorists have been Lone Wolves but that doesn't fit the leftist narrative.

Update: You know, I've totally changed my mind, I think he may have something.

White privilege is knowing that even if the bomber turns out to be white, no one will call for your group to be profiled as terrorists as a result, subjected to special screening or threatened with deportation.

After all this white dude bombed stuff and murdered people, today not only does he not regret it. He's a celebrated professor and a major player in educating our children. Not to mention a good friend of President Obama.

National Guard Heros Helped Save Lives

I am not a fan of Mother Jones but this is a story that deserves to be shared.

Soldiers from Massachusetts National Guard were participating in their annual
"Tough Ruck" race to honor fellow soldiers killed in action. They ran the Boston Marathon in full gear, including a 40lb backpack.


But as they completed the challenge, bombs ripped through the crowds. The soldiers sprang into action and tore through the barriers, allowing medical teams quick access to the victims.

Tasneem Raja writes:

When the explosion went off, Fiola and his group immediately went into tactical mode. "I did a count and told the younger soldiers to stay put," Fiola says. "Myself and two other soldiers, my top two guys in my normal unit, crossed the street about 100 yards to the metal scaffoldings holding up the row of flags. We just absolutely annihilated the fence and pulled it back so we could see the victims underneath. The doctors and nurses from the medical tent were on the scene in under a minute. We were pulling burning debris off of people so that the medical personnel could get to them and begin triage."

Once the victims were transported away for further medical care, Fiola and the others stood guard around the blast area. "We switched to keeping the scene safe, quarantining the area and preventing people from entering. There was a guy behind me covered, just covered, in his own blood, and I started to smell some smoke. I turn around to look and he's actually on fire, from a piece of whatever caused the explosion. I saw the smoke coming from his pocket so I reached in and pulled it out. It was his handkerchief, on fire."

Incidentally, the cowboy hat hero in my earlier post was with the Massachusetts National Guard. He was there to honor his sons, one who was killed in Iraq and the other who committed suicide after his brother's death.

From The Pentagon News Channel, in this video you can see the National Guardsmen tearing down the barriers, and you can see Carlos Arredondo (in his cowboy hat) on the other side of the fence helping victims:

Sandcrawler PSA: Keep an Open Mind

Until all the facts are in we need to keep in mind, despite all the Inspire chatter, that the Marathon itself is not without controversy, it could be someone with a beef against the Marathon itself or its organizers.

I mean after all the recent murders of prosecutors in Texas appear to have come from within the law enforcement community while all the chatter was of drug lords and white supremacists.

If it does turn out that it was someone sympathetic to al-Qaeda it would probably be a lone wolf, revenge for some specific act, or one of the branch franchises such as AQIM, AQAP or Shabaab.

I just have trouble seeing al-Qaeda central's reasoning in attacking the US in its homeland at this time. I mean they are pretty much getting their way in the Eastern hemisphere. I can see them projecting their power there, but why piss off the homeland and run the risk of undoing Islamist progress by arousing the US with a domestic attack?

Patience young Jedi, Patience.

Update: See patience pays off, with all the letters and packages going to Obama and the Senate I'm going to go out on a limb here and say its not someone mad at the Marathon.

Its fucking al-Qaeda.

And pretty much matches al-Qaedas 9/11 attack signature.

Which means the anthrax attacks in 2001 were also al-Qaeda and they probably got the Ames strain from Saddam who got it from us during the Iran/Iraq war.

All starting to add up.

I still don't get why they would do this, see above, but not the first time I've been wrong.

Update: Well my Kihnspiracy theory is just shot all to hell.

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?

We really should get this group together with Westboro Baptist Church. I'm sure they have much in common.

Boston Marathon Atrocity Image

I thought this picture really summed up the best and worst of that cowardly act of terrorism committed in Boston. It shows the best in people, those heroically rushing into potential danger to help others, and it shows the worst - the terrible, gruesome results endured by the innocent victims.


The hero:

Peace activist Carlos Arredondo heroically went to the aid of horrifically injured victims of the Boston marathon explosions.

The cowboy-hat wearing bystander threw himself into the scene – pulling debris away to allow emergency crews access – just seconds after two bombs exploded at the finish of the course. [...]

In one of the most harrowing images from the atrocity, Mr Arredondo can be seen tending to an injured man whose legs were both blown off by the force of the blast.

He apparently pinched off the exposed femoral artery of the ashen-faced young man, who retained consciousness during the appalling ordeal, as he is escorted from the scene on a wheelchair.

The victim:

Jeff Bauman Jr. sustained extensive damage to both of his legs during the Boston Marathon terror attack Monday afternoon, but he survived the explosion and is in stable condition, according to his father.

The 24-year-old had to have both of his legs amputated, but his father, Jeff Bauman Sr., wrote on Facebook that his son is going to pull through, despite the brutal wounds he sustained.

"Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers; they did help greatly. Unfortunately, my son was just in the wrong place at the wrong time," Bauman wrote in a Tuesday-morning Facebook post. "He had to have both lower limbs removed due to the excessive vascular and bone damage. ... He went back into surgery last night at midnight for exploratory due to fluid in his abdomen. He came out at 2:30, and doctors informed us he was doing better."

The entire graphic picture is linked. Not suitable for young or sensitive viewers.

Breaking: Ricin Laced Letter Intercepted at Capital

On CNN they are saying that a letter sent to a Republican Senator from Mississippi has been discovered to have been laced with ricin.


An envelope that tested positive for the deadly poison ricin was intercepted Tuesday afternoon at the U.S. Capitol's off-site mail facility in Washington, congressional and law enforcement sources tell CNN.
Apparently they are on round 3 of retesting, just to make sure the first two tests weren't false positives I suppose.

Denmark Sweeps up Sharia4Belgium


Fouad Belkacem and 50 other members of the Anjem Choudary inspired Sharia4Belgium were swept up by Belgian authorities today.

Fouad Belkacem, was placed under arrest Tuesday by a judge in Antwerp. "My client denies any involvement in terrorist activities. He also denies enlisting young people to send in Syria, "said his lawyer.

The former spokesman for the extremist splinter group dissolved Sharia4Belgium, Fouad Belkacem, was placed under arrest Tuesday by a judge in Antwerp. He will appear Friday before the council chamber will decide whether to maintain his detention. The former spokesman denies the charges against him, said his lawyer, Mr. Walter Damen.

Fouad Belkacem was arrested Tuesday in connection with the major action taken against persons suspected of terrorist activities against groups enrôleraient young Belgians to fight in Syria. The survey, conducted in February 2012, aimed in particular Sharia4Belgium.

WAPO says the authorities are trying to determine if Sharia4Belgium is a terrorist group.
Authorities are trying to determine if the group is a terrorist outfit, and prosecutors allege that Sharia4Belgium members who had traveled to Syria linked up with “al-Qaida-inspired combatants.” Videos showed its former leader Fouad Belkacem being taken from his home in the pre-dawn sweep.

“It was a very important step of the federal police to try to counter that movement,” Mechelen Mayor Bart Somers told The Associated Press.

That's a silly question. Of course they are a terrorist group. A domestic islamic insurgency hell bent on replacing the nation of Belgium with an Islamic state and placing all the Kuffar there under their rule as second class citizens. The question are they terrorists? is laughable.

We in the west the only ones that confer a special religious exception to Muslims to commit sedition and treason. Once they rule don't expect them to return the favor, expect more like them claiming your wife as theirs just before your beheading.

How Long Does it Take for a Terror Group to Claim Responsibility?

Sometimes immediately. Sometimes, not so much:

Osama bin Laden didn't officially take responsibility for the attack until late October 2001 -- almost two months after the assault.

Then there's the 2009 "underwear bomb" attempt by Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab. That attack occurred on Christmas Day -- a Friday -- but the message by al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula claiming responsibility didn't surface until Monday, three days later. (It had been originally dated Saturday but wasn't published on radical Islamic websites until Monday.)

And how about the Fort Hood shooting in 2009? It took four days for Anwar al-Awlaki to publicly praise his radicalized pupil, Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, on his English-language web site for the tragic killing of 13 people in Texas.

And all of this is assuming that the individual who did the deed was directly connected to a larger terror network. Which misses entirely the notion of the "lone wolf jihadist".

If the pressure cooker bomb was made using the directions found in Inspire magazine, then why wouldn't these other words of wisdom from a different issue of that very same magazine apply?

What we recommend is that you focus on planning out attacks in the West .... Similarly, the mujahidin leadership are today asking the brothers in the West specifically to attack Western interests in the West instead of coming here to Yemen for example. ...

The article then goes on to say that nearly all of the [ed note by Democrats on House Homeland Security Committee: nonexistent] homegrown terrorists caught last year were part of groups planning attacks. The inference the author draws is that would-be jihadis should not try and contact others before attacking. He notes successful jihadis such as Nidal Hassan, the Fort Hood killers, and Taimour Abdulwahab al-Abdaly, the Stockholm suicide bomber, were lone wolfs.

A smart jihadi never tells any one. Which means we may not hear anything until after the perp is caught, after which whatever group he was affiliated with or had online social connections to will "claim" him as their own.

Boston Bombs Were Pressure Cooker IEDs
UPD: Evidence Suggests Islamist Terrorists

US News:

A person briefed on the Boston Marathon investigation says the explosives were in 6-liter pressure cookers and placed in black duffel bags.

The person says the explosives were placed on the ground and contained shards of metal, nails and ball bearings. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the investigation was ongoing.

The person says law enforcement officials have some of the bomb components but did not yet know what was used to set off the explosives.

Thanks to Laura.

Update: NYT's confirms.

Michael McCaul, a Texas Republican who heads the House Homeland Security Committee, said the authorities believe the explosives were likely a “pressure-cooker device,” similar to improvised explosive weapons used against American troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.
UPDATE by Rusty: If this turns out to be true, then it's almost certainly the work of Islamist extremists who used the directions for a pressure cooker bomb as outlined in AQAP's Inspire magazine, edited by the now dead Samir Khan of Charlotte, North Carolina.

Here's an image from the September, 2010 issue of Inspire.


As a reminder, the magazine as well as components for making a similar bomb were found in PFC Jason Abdo's room.

Raees Alam Qazi, a 20-year-old naturalized U.S. citizen from Pakistan, and his brother, Sheheryar Alam Qaz also wanted to use the same instructions in a plot to blow up tourist sites in New York City.

The magazine and bomb making instructions were widely distributed among would-be jihadis.

Boston Marathon Massacre Update

Just a quick update to clarify some of the reports that we got yesterday, some of them turning out to be wrong.

Three dead, 170+ wounded -- some very seriously:

Three people were killed, including an 8-year-old boy, and more than 170 were wounded.
We should thank God, the first responders, and the bystanders who helped in the immediate aftermath of the attack. It could have been worse. Much, much worse.

And about those other bombs they found? False alarms:

Gov. Deval Patrick said contrary to earlier reports, no unexploded bombs were found. He said the only explosives were the ones that went off.
We'll update as new information becomes available.

Legitimate Target?


There's always the possibility of the perpetrators in this horrible act of terrorism being right-wing or left-wing (yes, there are terrorists among left-wingers despite the media refusal to admit it), but my gut says it's Islamic.

Under Islam by Muhammad's own example of conduct, children are legitimate targets. U.S. civilians are legitimate targets. Which means, if this was an Islamic attack, this victim was a legitimate target:

An 8-year-old boy was killed Tuesday in one of the explosions at the end of the Boston Marathon seconds after he reportedly hugged his runner dad as he approached the finish line.

Martin Richard, the boy, was with his mother and 6-year-old sister near the grandstand when one of the explosions occurred. The mother and sister were both critically injured in the blast. Martin's mother underwent brain surgery Monday night and his sister, 6, lost a leg in the blast, WHDH.com reported.

Say what you will about war, terrorism, soldiers, or terrorists. The difference between good and evil is who they consider "legitimate targets."

Good only targets direct threats. Collateral damage is sometimes the sad and unfortunate result, but there is no intent to harm innocents, only to destroy threats.

Evil targets the weakest and most defenseless. Evil is cowardice manifested through violence and fear. Evil is terrorism.

Coincidence? Bomb Sniffing Dogs At Boston Marathon

And, no, I am not suggesting the Boston police were somehow complicit in the bombing or that the whole terrible atrocity was some sort of a black ops activity.

To have bomb sniffing dogs at a highly attended event is not unreasonable. It is an unfortunate necessity in this modern day of terrorism. But it does strike me as disingenuous for law enforcement to repeatedly announce it was just "a training exercise" if they did have credible information of a possible terrorist attack.

University of Mobile’s Cross Country Coach, who was near the finish line of the Boston Marathon when a series of explosions went off, said he thought it was odd there were bomb sniffing dogs at the start and finish lines.

"They kept making announcements to the participants do not worry, it's just a training exercise," Coach Ali Stevenson told Local 15.

Stevenson said he saw law enforcement spotters on the roofs at the start of the race. He's been in plenty of marathons in Chicago, D.C., Chicago, London and other major metropolitan areas but has never seen that level of security before.

"Evidently, I don't believe they were just having a training exercise," Stevenson said. "I think they must have had some sort of threat or suspicion called in."

CNN reports a state government official said there were no credible threats before the race.

Sandcrawler PSA: Terrorist and Crazy Not Mutually Exclusive Categories

Haroon Aswat will not be coming to America to face charges related to a terrorist plot involving Abu Hamza because he is, you know, batshit crazy.

BBC: The European Court of Human Rights has ruled a terrorism suspect should not be extradited from the UK to the US due to his mental health problems.

Haroon Aswat allegedly tried to establish a training camp in Oregon with the radical cleric Abu Hamza, who was extradited to the US last year.

But Mr Aswat said conditions in a 'supermax' jail could exacerbate his paranoid schizophrenia.

Oddly enough Jihadis claiming they are crazy is not all that uncommon. and who am I to argue with that. I mean they worship a cube five times a day and want to kill innocents and Jews because its in the Koran.

Old Runner Down in Boston is Fine

oldrunner.JPGThe old man running in the Boston Marathon who falls after the explosion is fine.

A 78-year-old Washington state man running his third Boston Marathon was near the finish line when he was knocked down by one of two bomb blasts and caught in a news photograph that quickly went viral.

Bill Iffrig, of Lake Stevens, told The Herald of Everett that he heard a noise Monday and found himself on the ground.

"It was only 5 feet away from me," he said. "It was really loud."
He said he ended up with a scrape on his knee, and that a race official helped him to his feet.

Iffrig said most of the other runners near the area weren't as close to the explosion as he was. He walked across the finish line and another half-mile to his hotel. Iffrig said of his proximity to the explosion that it was a "close one" and the experience "scared" him.

Good to know he was not seriously hurt.

Breaking: Explosions at Boston Marathon
UPDATES: Terrorism?!?!
Ball Bearings in Explosion
Pipe bombs????
Saudi Suspect in Custody?
Third Incident at JFK Library
Interesting Image of Possible Suspect
Obama Punts on "Terror"

Original post below the fold. New updates (Vinnie)

Video of the bombings from different angles. They say "graphic" but I don't think the Weekly Standard knows what that word thinks they think it means.

What would we do without Dianne Firearmstealer?

Update by SH: Dear Weekly Standard, this is ^GRAPHIC [NSFW: Below the fold AND try to tell me this is NOT terrorism]

BTW, anti-2nd Amendments nutz are trying to s;y a child from Sandy Hook died in the marathon.

Exploiting this is the worse kind of evil.

This is terrorism no matter if it be foreign or domestic. One bomb goes off and another one happens seconds later. It was meant to cause mass injuries/casualties. Only problem is those in the marathon stopped and didn't know what the hell happened as the next one went off. Mass injuries/casualties averted.

Sound familiar? We read about what happens all the time in Iraq and Afghanistan. AND, Yemen AND etc. etc. etc. The peoples run from a IED only to be caught up in a very lethal second IED.

THE MFM have failed to mention possible foreigners may be injured in the attack. Brits are waiting for word as well as Ireland

Relatives of the 347 British and 108 Irish runners taking part in the Boston marathon were waiting for news of their loved ones as survivors told of their horror at the blasts.
Bronco Bama has his work cut out for him in getting to the bottom of this.






This is Baghdad/Iraq ala Boston, Massachusetts:


Tell me again the above IS NOT TERRORISM.

My thoughts and prayers are with hima and his family and all those affected by this horrific terror attack.


Details are sketchy, but often times running shoes just don't explode unless Allah Wills it.


Two explosions have been reported near the Boston Marathon finish line on Boylston Street as thousands of people gathered for the race, and there are reports of injuries.

The blasts happened at about 2:50 p.m. near the intersection of Boylston and Exeter streets. Witnesses said several victims lost limbs, and the area was being evacuated.

The first explosion happened across from the Lenox Hotel and the second blast was about 15 seconds later, witnesses said.

I'm not sure but this report seems to indicate the race was finished at the time of the explosions.

We'll update as more becomes available.

UPDATE by Rusty: I'm combining Howie and Matt Damon's post together.

Matt Damon: Update:

More here at CNN:

Double explosions of course are a hallmark of al-Qaeda but that would be speculation at this point. There is a known presence of Jihadi s there.

I've reports that Boston.com is live blogging but the site appears to be down.

UPDATE by Rusty: Over at Boston.com the usual suspects are warning us not to "jump to conclusions". I'm not sure at what point common sense became jumping to conclusions.

In any event, common sense says this is terrorism. Of course, common sense is sometimes wrong. Sometimes. But what makes common sense common? Well, it's usually right.

We're hearing that 12 or more are dead. NYPost:

A federal law-enforcement source told The Post there are at least 12 dead and twice as many injured.

Law-enforcement sources said at least the first explosion occurred in the lobby of the Fairmont Hotel.

UPDATE: Speaking of common sense:
Fox News is reporting Boston Marathon bystanders saying they were struck by ball bearings during explosions
If that's true, then there is only one explanation for this: terrorism.

UPDATE: Local PD seem to have reeled the death toll back. I'm now hearing only 2 - 3 dead, with dozens injured.

I'd say thank God, but this also could be one of those instances where they don't want to give a number until all the casualties are confirmed. So, keep the victims in your prayers.

UPDATE: Reports say that at least two other explosive devices were found.

UPDATE: Trying to find a live TV feed I was forced to watch MSNBC until I found this livestream of the local Fox affiliate.

Apparently some news reports are claiming these are "pipe bombs". That's very hard to believe. I've made pipe bombs (as a kid). I never was able to produce an explosion this big. Not even close.

UPDATE: Via Ace, this from the NYPost:

Authorities have a identified a suspect, who is currently being guarded in a Boston hospital with shrapnel wounds.
Looking at the video and listening to those who were witnesses, we learn that there was a very big initial explosion followed by a smaller secondary explosion. There's no way that initial explosion was a "pipe bomb". None. Perhaps the secondary explosion was, and the other devices found were pipe bombs, but not the initial explosion.

If I had to merit a guess I'd say that they'll find the first bomb was made from something like a pressure cooker or a propane tank.

UPDATE: Watching Boston PD press conference live. Confirm that a third "incident" happened at the "JFK Library"

They are asking for the public's help in finding any one involved, which seemed to contradict the earlier Post report that a suspect was already in custody.

UPDATE: The Post is doubling down saying there is a suspect in custody, and that he's a Saudi national:

The suspect — a Saudi national who suffered shrapnel wounds in today's blast — is currently being guarded in a Boston hospital.
How many Tea Party members in Saudi Arabia?

UPDATE:Lefties blame:

1. "patriots" (aka Tea Partiers)

2. "insurgents" (some libs think terrorists are legitimate fighters)

3. Anti-Gitmo activists.

UPDATE: Here's an insightful tweet, and parallels some speculation that I think DMartyr or Matt Damon made behind the scenes:

Small bombs in multiple locations. Sounds like the planned NYC subway bombing the FBI thwarted in 2009.
And now I'm hearing reports that the Boston PD shut down cell phone service so they could prevent IED explosions detonated by mobile phones.

Also, word is the FBI are already calling this "terrorism".

A buddy of mine (no liberal, he) pointed out that the Saudi who is reportedly in custody may have just been in the wrong place at the wrong time. Closest Arab to the scene of the crime.

I've no idea, but it would be ironic if he was a victim of racial profiling in one of America's most liberal cities?

UPDATE: Ok, two things to update. Over on Twitter there are a number of reports that the Boston PD is denying that any one is in custody. But the local Fox affiliate is reporting that the ATF and FBI just swarmed on Brigham and Women's hospital. Possibly they're just starting to get witness testimony after a mass briefing. But on the other hand ....

Secondly, The Jester noticed that there was a guy on the roof of the hotel when it exploded. Possible suspect? Or just some guy on the roof watching the marathon?

I've cut the image down to something more manageable.



You'll notice he seems to be heading toward the explosion, right as it's going off.

Could just be some guy, but it's interesting nonetheless. On a related note, the FBI and Boston PD are seeking film spectators might have of the area before the explosion.

Random semantic thought by Rusty UPDATE: This was not a tragedy. This was an atrocity.

Tragedy is a passive word. It implies less than direct causation. It implies inevitability.

When someone dies from cancer when they are still in their 20s, that's tragic.

When someone is murdered, it's not a tragedy, it's an atrocity.

I hate when people call 9/11 or any other act of terror a tragedy. The word doesn't come close to being accurate or capturing the magnitude of the horror inflicted on the victims and on our nation.

UPDATE: President Obama just got on TV and told us that something bad happened in Boston and that the authorities would hold the perpetrators accountable.

Gee, that was so informative. Thank you President Obama!

Also, pretty much all the updates are me, Rusty. Howie went home or into a Hobbit hole or wherever he goes when we unshackle him from the desk we keep him chained to from 9 - 5 weekdays.

So, blame me, not him, for any typos or baseless speculation.

UPDATE: You know what word was missing from President O's presser? Terrorism.

You know, you'd have to be pretty stupid at this point to think this was something other than terrorism.

But you know what word he did use? Tragedy.

Maybe it's time to demand those college transcripts again?

UPDATE: CNN now reporting 90+ hurt, 2 killed.

UPDATE: And on cue:

“American blood isn’t more precious than Muslim blood,” said Mohammad al-Chalabi, who was convicted in an al-Qaeda-linked plot to attack US and other Western diplomatic missions in Jordan in 2003.

“Let the Americans feel the pain we endured by their armies occupying Iraq and Afghanistan and killing our people there,” he said early Tuesday.

The sentiment is expected. Isn't the real question here .... WTF is a convicted terrorist doing out of prison so soon???

Lashkar-e-Taiba Leader Arrested in Afghanistan

With friends like Pakistan who needs enemies?

Long War Journal

Coalition and Afghan special operations forces captured a senior leader from the Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba during a raid today in the southeastern Afghan province of Ghazni. Additionally, special operations forces killed an "insurgent leader" who supported foreign fighters during an operation yesterday in the northeastern province of Kunar.

The "senior Lashkar-e-Taiba leader" and "a number of other insurgents" were captured in the district of Andar in Ghazni, the International Security Assistance Force stated in a press release. ISAF did not identify the nationality of the leader or the "other insurgents" captured during the raid.

The Lashkar-e-Taiba leader "planned and participated in multiple attacks against Afghan and Coalition forces throughout Kunar, Kandahar and Ghazni provinces" and "was actively planning a high-profile attack at the time of his arrest."

He also "is known to have links to multiple foreign fighters." ISAF often uses the term 'foreign fighters' to describe members of al Qaeda and other affiliated foreign terror groups that operate in Afghanistan. ISAF told The Long War Journal today that it "cannot confirm any ties" between the Lashkar-e-Taiba leader and "al Qaeda affiliation with foreign fighters."

Is there a drone with Hafiz Mohammed Saeed's name on it?

Afterwards, she ate the evidence.

CLINTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — It was no bomb -- just two cans of spaghetti sauce. But police in the Detroit area report they're looking for a woman who's charged with using the sauce to steal dough.

According to authorities, Ophelia A. Neal told employees at a bank branch in Macomb County's Clinton Township that she had a bomb in her bag. Authorities say the 430-pound suspect was already on parole and has fraud, assault and marijuana convictions.

She got away with $3,000, which should feed her for a few hours while on the lam.

The image Google is using appears to be a frame grab from a video and possibly photoshopped. It is from a blog whose owner apparently hates Malkin.

Sandcrawler PSA: Bras Make Your Boobs Sag

No really, I swear!

Oh. My. God. We’ve been played for boobs!…

From Counsel & Heal, Christine Hsu reporting, we learn the horrific [but titillating] news [tip of the fedora to Matt 'Bazoombas' Drudge]:

Women have long been told that a good bra can help support the chest, relieve back pain and prevent sagging. However, a new 15-year French study reveals the opposite: bras do little to reduce back pain and, over time, they can actually make breasts sag even more.


Researcher Prof. Jean-Denis Rouillon, a sports science expert from the University of Besançon in eastern France claims that "bras are a false necessity," according to The Local.

"Medically, physiologically, anatomically – breasts gain no benefit from being denied gravity," said Rouillon. "On the contrary, they get saggier with a bra."

And it only took him 15 years of study, good work if you can get it.

Arab Spring Photo Essay!

On the attack of St. Mark's Cathedral in Cairo

Front Page Mag:

Egypt’s Coptic Christians frequently accuse State Security and police of overlooking Muslim attacks on Christians and their places of worship, especially monasteries and churches. The Western mainstream media often ignores these accusations, or mentions them in passing as “unsubstantiated reports.” Last weekend’s assault on the St. Mark Cathedral — unprecedented in significance — was no different, except for the fact that there are many pictures demonstrating State complicity.

A Muslim burns a Bible in front of the cathedral, right under security’s nose. In Egypt, if a Christian is merely accused of “desecrating” a Koran, he/she gets several years in prison. Yet here is a Muslim burning a Bible, with photo evidence, but he has nothing to fear.

o recap: After last Sunday’s St. Mark Cathedral funeral service for Egypt’s most recent Christian victims of jihad — including one man set aflame — gangs of Muslims attacked the Christian mourners, resulting in the deaths of two more Copts, including one shot through the heart. Hundreds of Christians retreated back into the cathedral — both to get out of harm’s way, and to protect their holiest site. They were trapped there all night, enduring projectile and firebomb attacks. State Security also opened fire on the cathedral, including through tear-gas.

We're not quite sure how the Jews tricked all these Muslims into violating the tenants of the Religion of Peace ™ and attack the People of the Book. But we're pretty sure its somehow their fault.

We have many intelligent, engaging commenters here at The Jawa Report. Apparently, you're not one of them.

In 2011, a left-wing and anti-Thatcher British newspaper, the Guardian, tried to smear Palin by writing a fictitious story, with an anonymous quote, about how Thatcher supposedly snubbed Palin for a meeting that had never even been scheduled, as both camps immediately confirmed. The British newspaper also claimed Thatcher called Palin "nuts." Rebecca Mansour, a longtime Palin advisor who would have knowledge of all of Palin's scheduled meetings, told Breitbart News that Palin never had the chance to meet Thatcher.

"Mrs. Thatcher made clear to us through her staff that there was an open invitation to meet, of course, contingent on Mrs. Thatcher's health, and this was reported in the British media," Mansour told Breitbart News. "Unfortunately, Governor Palin did not have the opportunity to travel to the UK, and she along with grateful people and nations across the globe morn Mrs. Thatcher's loss."

Graphic Video: Christian Women Sexually Assaulted by Men of Unknown and Presumably Unknowable Religion Screaming "Allahu Akbar!"

I love when the media calls events like this "sectarian violence".

Two sides, each with their own grievances. Who's to say who's in the right?

I think they do this because they find themselves in a leftist dilemma. Leftists see the world through the lens of power. The haves vs. the have-nots. That is their moral outlook on life. It has nothing to do with right or wrong, proper vs. improper action, only who has power and who doesn't have power.

Christianity = West = power = bad. Islam = third world = no power = good.

Which is a problem for them when it comes to Christians vs. Muslims in the Muslim world. It's just hard for them to wrap their narrow minds around a reality in which Muslims have the power and Christians are a persecuted and powerless minority.

So, when they come upon this situation they resort to the thing that is easiest: they're all guilty. Just two sides engaged in cyclical violence. Why can't everybody just get along?

Except that Coptic Christians in Egypt aren't terrorizing Muslims by burning down their mosques, and gang raping their women while screaming, "Jesus is Lord."

The video below is fairly disturbing, even if it is not as graphic as advertized. It claims to be a "gang rape" over at LiveLeak, but if a rape does occur the video shuts off before that point.

What it does show is a gang of men screaming "Allahu akbar!" as they assault two Christian women, beating them, and tearing their clothes off as the women cry and scream. The footage is purportedly from outside the Coptic cathedral which was victimized yesterday by a mob involved in "sectarian violence".

I did not come back from watching it with a cheery outlook on life. You've been warned.

Shocking News! AQI Claims Syrian Jihadi Front al-Nusra


And also water is wet.

An an official statement issued yesterday, the al-Qaeda-affiliated Islamic State of Iraq (ISI) officially claimed Syria’s Jabhat al-Nusra (JN) as its own product and subsidiary. The audio message from ISI’s emir, Abu Bakr al-Husayni al-Qurashi al-Baghdadi, confirmed once and for all JN’s status as an al-Qaeda offshoot established by ISI—a link JN leaders have long played down or denied. It also significantly revised jihadi nomenclature for the region. The names of “the Islamic State of Iraq” and “Jabhat al-Nusra,” decreed al-Baghdadi, are hereby void; the two groups are now combined under the joint name of “the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria” (al-dawla al-islamiyya fi al-‘iraq wa-l-sham; ISIGS). Thus will the “banner” of jihad achieve further unity.
This isn't the Qaida al-Jihad we're looking for. You can go about your business. Move along. Move along.

Arab Spring! Egypt Going to Sh8t

There's a new fragrance coming to the Arab Spring in Egypt and its not a field of fresh wildflowers either.

al-Arabia: Egypt’s Jan. 25 revolution has been “hijacked” by Islamists and the country is “collapsing on the political and economic levels,” leading opposition figure, Mohamed ElBaradei said Monday.
“The revolution has been hijacked and that is why we are suffering today. Egypt is now collapsing on the political and economic levels and we are paying a dear price,” said ElBaradei, who is the coordinator of the country’s opposition liberal and secular alliance, the National Salvation Front (NSF), in the closing session of a conference on the country’s woeful economic condition.
He lamented the “lack of rationalism” in the policies of Islamist President Mohammed Mursi.

“Problems are no longer seen rationally,” he said, expressing fears over the “obvious collapse of the state” as seen in its inability to maintain order. “There is no executive power and no legislative power. All those are signs that the state is falling apart,” the former chief of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) added.

Pierre Borghi was kidnapped in late November and released in Wardak province outside the capital on Sunday night, Afghan officials said, while the second released man, who has not been named, was taken captive in Kabul on January 27.

Officials in Kabul who declined to be identified said that the two men had been held separately and gave no explanation of why they had been released on the same day.

“Two of our compatriots kidnapped in Afghanistan have been released. We welcome their freedom,” Philippe Lalliot, spokesman for the foreign ministry in Paris, told AFP.

Great to have you back, My advice, now go back to France and stay out of God forsaken third world shit holes.

An Interview With Amina Tyler

The Atlantic:

The Tunisian woman who sparked the feminist group's nude protest last week says it was the wrong approach. But was she speaking freely?

For the first time since her disappearance after posting topless photos of herself on Femen's Facebook Tunisia page almost three weeks ago, Amina Tyler, the 19-year-old Tunisian aspirant to Femen, spoke to the press, granting, on Saturday, a brief interview to the French satellite television station Canal+.

She professed to have no regrets, apparently in reference to her topless postings, but "I don't know what will happen in the future . . . I have to leave Tunisia, because I've received a lot of death threats, and I'm afraid for my life and for my family here, especially since there are a lot of rumors about what the Salafists and Islamists are going to do to me." Menacing messages, she said, have come via telephone and her Facebook page. "'You're going to die! We're going to throw acid on your face,' things like that."

Had she in fact been kidnapped by her family, as was widely reported, after uploading her pictures to Femen's page? She implied as much.

"My family found me in a café and took me home. My cousin broke my cell phone and beat me." She was then moved "to another city in Tunisia." Had she been forced to stay with her family? "Yes, of course. I don't want to stay in Tunisia . . . I hope to leave Tunisia and leave my family and all these threats." Now and then she smiled uncomfortably, her voice sounding mostly flat and expressionless.

Amina then expressed fears that Femen burning the Salafist banner inscribed with the Shahada was an insult to all Muslims not just Islamist radicals.

The Altantic notes in parenthesis that "In fact, her name figures nowhere among the slogans the three activists involved painted on their chests and backs; "

Which is not exactly accurate. They activists did shout Aminas name. But regardless now they are receiving the predictable death threats.

Shevchenko herself has been dealing with the fallout from Femen's Topless Jihad Day, during which she and her colleagues conducted protests across Europe, in Brazil, and even in San Francisco to show solidarity with Tyler. "A man has posted a video online in Arabic calling for us to be beheaded for our mosque protest." This and other threats have prompted her and other Femen members to take measures to conceal their identity when outside. (Femen's France headquarters is located in a mostly Muslim neighborhood in Paris.)

Conrhole Watch: Walli Mujahidh Sentenced to 17 Years


A man who helped plot an attack with machine guns and grenades on a Seattle military complex has been sentenced to 17 years in prison.

Walli Mujahidh was sentenced Monday after pleading guilty in December to conspiracy to kill officers of the U.S., conspiracy to use weapons of mass destruction, and unlawful possession of a firearm.

Robert Spencer poses this question.
Yet the guardians of acceptable opinion in the U.S. would insist that he misunderstands his own religion, somehow getting the "Islamophobic" idea that it involves killing Infidels. Once again: why do so many Muslims misunderstand their religion in this way?
Well its not that they misunderstand Islam. Islam is what Muslims believe it is. Not what some lefty Kufar imagines it should be.

And to many Muslims Islam means Jihad especially if your chosen Islamic name is Mujahidh or Holy Warrior. I mean what else you think Walli was thinking? About the peaceful inner Holy War that will go on between his hand and his penis for the next 17 years?

In The Future Everyone Will be Extremists

An Army Reserve training poster lists various types of extremists. Including the usual, al-Qaeda, and the Muslim Brotherhood whom the Obama administration called mostly secular.

Also included the world's 1.18 billion Catholics and of course Islamophobes.... those are people who have an irrational fear of having their head sloppily chopped off with a butcher knife.

Hot Air: This one earns the coveted Duke University triple facepalm, the highest honor we can award for self-beclowning. An Army Reserve training class attempted to instruct soldiers on the various extremist groups of the world, dutifully noting al-”Quaeda,” with with the US armed forces are at war, and Hamas, which the State Department lists as a terrorist organization. Both of those, however, come below a couple of extremist groups so fringe that only about 60 million Americans count themselves among their ranks:


One does have to be amused, however, at the last entry on the list — “Islamophobia”. That follows a half-dozen references to various Islamist groups, including one that the Obama administration is currently attempting to engage (the Muslim Brotherhood), and “Sunni Muslims” — without any other qualifiers. I imagine the Shi’ites appreciate that conclusion...

Zawahiri Praises al-Nusra Urges Jihadist Islamic State in Syria

Old Bumpy Noggin Al-Bumpy ibn Noggin is back in an audio only message in Arabic only(no subtitles) calling for a radical extremist state in Syria.

DUBAI - Al-Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri has urged rebels to fight to establish an Islamic state in Syria, in an online audio message Sunday in which he also warned France against its military intervention in Mali.


"Let your fight be in the name of Allah and with the aim of establishing Allah's sharia (law) as the ruling system," he said in his first message posted on the Internet since last November.

"Do all that you can so that your holy war yields a jihadist Islamic state," said Zawahiri, adding that such a state would help to re-establish the Islamic "caliphate" system of rule.

"The enemy has begun to reel and collapse," he said, referring to forces loyal to Assad.

Islamist rebel groups such as the Al-Nusra Front, which has links to Al-Qaeda, have eschewed the main opposition National Coalition, making it clear their goal is the creation of an Islamic state to replace President Bashar al-Assad's regime.

Zawahiri's message will not sit easily with Western powers, who have expressed fears of extremist Islamism playing a growing role in the Syrian conflict and are reluctant to arm the rebels on the ground.

Assad's regime has long dismissed the rebels as "terror" groups backed by Western powers and driven by Al-Qaeda-style ideologies.

The entire video is available here at Jihadology, although at 340 megs its more disk than I'm willing to sacrifice to hear Zawahiri drone on for 45 minutes.

It appears to be a simple file image of Zawahiri and just his voice, in between there is footage and commentary on Jihad from various places. Somalia and Mali are a couple I recognize, possibly some from Egypt.

Update: Thanks to 11B40.

Jihadtube Threatens Palestinian Media Watch

Because reporting what Palestinians actually say is hate speech.


Last week, Palestinian Media Watch released a video-bulletin showing a Palestinian Authority children's TV broadcast of a hate-poem. A young Palestinian girl recited a poem referring to Jews as "Allah's enemies, the sons of pigs" who "murdered children," "cut off their limbs," "raped the women in the city squares" and "defiled Allah's book." The host responded with enthusiastic applause and "Bravo!"

The following day, YouTube blocked access to PMW's video, defining it as a "violation of YouTube's policy prohibiting hate speech."

n the past, YouTube has closed PMW's account or frozen PMW's account for exposing PA religious leaders promoting genocide of Jews. This is the first time YouTube has defined a broadcast on PA children's TV as hate speech, and blocked PMW from exposing it.

PMW does not promote hate speech, but exposes it. PMW believes that the only way to stop the Palestinian Authority's ongoing Islam-based hate speech and terror glorification is to expose it. By preventing PMW from exposing PA hatred, YouTube is actively impeding our ability to fight the PA's hate promotion.

Apparently Youtube relented and the video was reinstated.

Of course the video was probably flagged by the Islamist flagging brigade as part of a move against Palestinian Media Watch rather than any objection to video itself. The PA television networks spend a lot of time inciting Jew hatred and belief in a final war of Genocide against Israel.

Here's one from a the Chompsy suckers at Democracy Now. The democracy that comes, you know, after all the Jews are dead

Her spokesman, Lord Bell, said on Monday: "It is with great sadness that Mark and Carol Thatcher announced that their mother Baroness Thatcher died peacefully following a stroke this morning.

"A further statement will be made later."

David Cameron said: "It was with great sadness that l learned of Lady Thatcher's death. We've lost a great leader, a great prime minister and a great Briton."

Egypt: Angry Muslims Kill Five Seven After Copt Child Draws A "Cross"

Notice how Reuters blames both Christians and Muslims, yet it was the Muslims who violently overreacted to a child's drawing (emphasis mine):

Five Egyptians were killed and eight wounded in clashes between Christians and Muslims in a town near Cairo, security sources said on Saturday, in some of the worst sectarian violence in Egypt for months. [...]

Four Christian Copts and one Muslim were killed when members of both communities started fighting and shooting at each other in El Khusus north of the Egyptian capital, the sources said. State news agency MENA put the death toll at four.

An angry crowd smashed shops belonging to Christians, residents said. A Reuters reporter saw a burned-out Coptic day care center and several damaged shops belonging to Christian traders. An apartment inhabited by Muslims was also burned.

Residents said the violence broke out on Friday when a group of Christian children were drawing on a wall of a Muslim religious institute.

A Reuters reporter saw what looked like a swastika drawn on the wall. Muslim residents said it had offended them because it looked like a cross.

"I saw the kids drawing on the wall after afternoon prayers so I grabbed them and told them to remove what they'd just written," said Mahmoud Mahmoud al-Alfi, a Muslim resident.

Then another man arrived and started beating the children, drawing a large crowd, he said. The situation escalated when someone drew a gun and fired into the air, killing one boy with a stray bullet.

Swastika? No problem. But a cross??? OH, NO YOU DIDN'T!!!11!!

So, lets review. One Christian Copt child draws a swastika that looks a little too much like an offensive cross. Muslims begin beating the children. One of the children is actually shot dead. Christian Copts fight back. Yet Reuters reports as though both sides are equally to blame.

One other note: The most of the pictures in the slideshow accompanying the article show Muslim victims, despite the fact the Christians suffered more casualties and losses. Again the implication by Reuters is that there was some equivalency in the cause and result of the "clashes."

Nothing new here. The religion of peace and the media behaving as we've come to expect. Carry on.

UPDATE: Global Times (H/T Jihad Watch) is reporting as many as seven Christian Copts have been killed in the clashes.

Below the fold, an image of the offensive drawing that justified taking 8 lives... probably NSFW if you are an Islamists or a liberal.

Ikea spokeswoman Tina Kardum said the product had only been on sale for a month when it was pulled off the shelves on March 22.

The company didn't announce the withdrawal publicly until Swedish newspaper Svenska Dagbladet wrote about it Saturday.[More]

#OpIsrael: Anon Will Hack Israeli Websites On #Holocaust Remembrance Day
Update: Israel Hacks Back


No surprise here, Anon sided with Hamas during the IDF''s Pillar of Defense.

[H]ackers around the world are plotting to strike Israel’s online presence in a coordinated cyber-attack later this week. The effort, known as “OpIsrael,” which is being organized by hacktivist group Anonymous, aims to target the 100 largest websites in the country, especially those of banks, credit card companies, and communications firms.

The attack is scheduled to take place Sunday, April 7. That evening, Israel begins to mark Holocaust Remembrance Day.

According to “Mauritania Attacker,” who leads a group of hackers called AnonGhost, “the hacking teams have decided to unite against Israel as one entity, and Israel should be getting prepared to be ‘erased’ from the Internet.”

“Its gonna be the biggest ever operation launched against any country, Its gonna be Huge [sic]!” said Mauritania Attacker in an interview to The Hackers Post.

PROVED FAKE: Photo of Palestinian Prisoner Maysara Abu Hamdiya Handcuffed to Bed

All ur Pallywood fakes are belong to the Juice

[IDF]The Israeli Prison Services spokeswoman, Sivan Weizman, explained that the prison had taken all the necessary precautions for Abu Hamdiya’s health, including transferring him to a prison closer to hospital facilities should he need them.

Hamdiya was arrested for his involvement in a terrorist acts in 2002 and passed away this week from effects of cancer.

Written on the image are the words “prisoner, commander and jihadist”, along with a profile picture of Maysara Abu Hamdiya.

The image implies that Abu Hamdiya handcuffed to a hospital bed. In reality, the arm pictured above is a cropped portion of a photo taken in Syria of a hospitalized rebel. The photo was originally published on December 8th, 2012.

Good News: Pakistani Terror Group Recruits Best and Brightest

Take a few million Indians, convince them that being Muslim makes them a different "nationality" than the rest of those around them, found an Islamic Republic, and this is what you get:

Imagine a terrorist group that recruits tens of thousands of young men from the same neighborhoods and social networks as the Pakistani military. A group whose well-educated recruits defy the idea that poverty and ignorance breed extremism. A group whose fighters include relatives of a politician, a senior Army officer and a director of Pakistan's Atomic Energy Commission.

That is the disconcerting reality of Lashkar-e-Taiba, one of the world's most dangerous militant organizations, according to a study released today by the Combating Terrorism Center at the U.S. Military Academy in West Point, N.Y. The report helps explain why Pakistan has resisted international pressure to crack down on Lashkar after it killed 166 people in Mumbai -- six U.S. citizens included -- and came close to sparking conflict between nuclear-armed Pakistan and India.

The sooner we get out of Afghanistan the sooner we can end the farce that Pakistan is our "ally".

Illegal Immigrant Shoots Mom Who Wouldn't Let Him Date Her 13 Yr Old Daughter

Stacey McCain notes that the age of consent in Mexico is ..... 12! Can that be true? It just seems so hard to believe.

I grew up in LA with a lot of friends who had Mexican backgrounds and I was always under the impression that the quinceanera -- the 15th birthday celebration, a sort of "coming out" party -- marked the symbolic passage to womanhood.

But ... 12? Say it aint so. We're not talking about Mogadishu here.

Denver Police Were Warned About James Holmes


A psychiatrist, who treated suspected mass killer James Holmes, warned police a month before the Colorado theater shooting that Holmes had made homicidal statements and was a danger to the public, according to documents released this week.

It is unclear what was done with that information or if that warning could have helped stop the July 20 shooting at an Aurora, Colorado movie theater that left 12 dead and dozens injured.

Diana Don't Worry The Denver PD Would Be There Within Minutes DeGette was unavailable for comment.

In related news Fox News journalist Jana Winter is being threatened with jail time for refusing to reveal her sources when she reported the existence of James Holmes' notebook.

My Fox News colleague, Jana Winter, an experienced journalist of impeccable integrity, is being threatened with incarceration by a Colorado judge unless she reveals the sources for the excellent and highly newsworthy piece she wrote for FoxNews.com revealing the existence of a notebook written by Mr. Holmes before the murders and sent to his psychiatrist, Dr. Lynne Fenton.
Andrew P. Napolitano's article points out that the defense for James Holmes drug up this issue, but it would seem to me that there are those on the government's side of the case who have a huge interest in this information not becoming public.

I mean, what if the public found out after all the weeping and anti-gun BS politics that the main problem was a failure government to do its job with the tools it had to start with?

New laws will do about as much good as the old laws did if we depend on the performance of these public officials. If not for journalists like Jana Winter we'd have never known how big a bunch of f*ck ups they really are, would we?

Stand with Jana Winter!

An Interview w/ FBI Most Wanted Terrorist
We Get Press!


Spencer Ackerman over at Wired interviews Omar Hammami over Twitter. It's worth the read, and we get a mention:

Jihadis and their American opposites have engaged each other over the Internet for years, notes Will McCants, a former State Department terrorism adviser. But usually those efforts are tentative and rarely substantial — let alone fun. What’s happening with Hammami is something new. “He comes across as quite likeable. He’s willing to listen, hear your argument and respond to it,” McCants says. “He’s not just a robot, he’s got this great sense of humor.”

He’s even winning over who prefer to point and laugh at jihadis, like Rusty Shackleford of the My Pet Jawa blog. Hammami recently tweeted, “rusty, I ain’t comin’ home alive jus like you ain’t gonna stop puttin’ soft porn up on mypetjawa. and to shabab, I’m here till u fix up.” Shackleford blogged, “I’ve actually become kinda fond of the guy — if that’s possible.”

It's true, the guy is kind of likeable. But that's the banality of evil, isn't it?

The worry here, and it's expressed in the article, is that the American people are not mature enough to handle the fact that evil people can also be nice.

Hitler didn't go around stealing candy from little kids. In fact, he never killed any one personally. He didn't go around torturing animals. He loved animals. He was a vegetarian.

Monstrosity is not expressed in small acts of meanness, but in occasional and usually rare acts of great evil.

Most people get that. I hope. It's mostly just Hollywood that doesn't get it (among the many other things they don't get).

And here's where it gets weird: up to now, I was under the assumption that Omar had only killed people in the usual course of an insurgency fighting an organized military.

But it turns out Omar is a murderer:

[Omar direct messages on twitter] that he killed an enemy Somali once, a prisoner Shebab captured working for the Ethiopians who wouldn’t talk under interrogation. “Just told myself he’s worse than a goat,” he says.
When you kill a prisoner for no other reason than he won't talk, that makes you a murderer.

Sorry Omar, when the drones finally come I might miss you a little but my feelings won't be hurt. It'll be justice.

Retard of the Day: Colorado Democrat House Member Diana DeGette

I know I posted on retard earlier but that was before I read her comment on ammunition clips.

Diana DeGette demonstrates her understanding of ammunition clips.

To your last question: ‘What’s the efficacy of banning these magazine clips?’ I will tell you, these are ammunition, they’re bullets, so the people who have those now, they’re going to shoot them. So if you ban, if you ban them in the future, the number of these high capacity magazines is going to decrease dramatically over time because the bullets will be shot and there won’t be any more available.
Of course once a clip runs out, you can just put more bullets in there.

That is unless she's privy to Obama's plan to use DHS to create a false ammunition shortage.

BERLIN: Bare-breasted activists staged rallies in front of mosques and Tunisian embassies across Europe Thursday against what they called an Islamist crackdown on Arab women's rights.

A Femen activist burns a Salafist flag in front of the Great Mosque of Paris, on April 3, 2013.

"And we'll fight against them. And our boobs will be stronger than their stones."

The rallies targeted in particular the case of a Tunisian activist calling herself Amina Tyler who sparked a scandal last month when she posted pictures of herself online with the words "My body belongs to me" and "Fuck your morals" emblazoned across her naked breasts.

Richard Landes: Islamism Is Winning The Cognitive War Thanks To Manipulative & Gullible Journalists

I would add PC to his list.

Anyone who remembers the halcyon dreams of the 1990s, of civil society spreading the world over, heralding a new peaceful, global millennium, must marvel at the path the young 21st century has taken. Even those who paid attention to global Jihad before the millennium could not imagine how vulnerable the West would prove in the coming, wildly asymmetrical war. Those who, over the course of the last 13 years, have awakened to the ever-growing danger of Islamism and to the astonishing inability of decent people – Muslims and non-Muslims – to effectively oppose its aggressions, owe themselves a brief lesson in cognitive warfare, and a second look at the nuclear bomb of that warfare, the Muhammad al Durah affair.

All asymmetrical wars take place primarily in the cognitive arena, with the major theater of war the enemy’s public sphere. The goal is to convince your far more powerful enemy not to fight. In defensive cases, from the Maccabees to the Vietnamese, this has meant getting imperial powers to “go home.” But Islamists who want to spread Dar al Islam[is the area of the world under the rule of Islam , literally, "the home of Islam" or "the home of submission"..ed] conduct an offensive campaign: how to get your targets to surrender on their own home ground? In this seemingly absurd venture, they have had remarkable success.

The mainstream news media – their journalists, editors, producers – constitute a central front of this cognitive war: the “weak” but aggressive side cannot have success without the witting or unwitting cooperation of the enemy’s journalists. The success of global Jihad in eliciting our media’s cooperation with their goals

The following video, "Pallywood," will give you a glimpse into that Palestinian propaganda machine. It is important to note that the al Durah video above was filmed on this same day and at the same location as the video below.

On Tuesday night The Denver Post editorial board hosts a public forum on gun legislation at the national level. U.S. Reps. Diana DeGette and Ed Perlmutter, State Sen. Kevin Lundberg, and Larimer County Sheriff Justin Smith are among the scheduled panelists. During the question and answer period a concerned Denver citizen asked Democratic Representative DeGette how he was supposed to defend himself under the new Colorado gun laws. DeGette smirked and mocked the senior citizen saying,
Watching the video the man is actually asking what to do if he is limited to just a few rounds and his home was invaded by several armed people. He fears the limitations might hinder his ability to defend his home.

Her Response:

he good news for you, you live in Denver. The Denver PD would be there within minutes. (laughing) You’d probably be dead anyway.”
Yeah you old fart you've got one foot in already. Besides only the police and DHS should have that capability and multiple armed people invading your home with sophisticated weapons, that almost never happens.
A veteran New York police officer is accused of equipping a robbery crew with state-of-the art New York police equipment and helping them loot drug dealers out of a million dollars.

The officer, Jose Tejada, 45, is also accused of allowing the robbery crew to use his Manhattan apartment for their enterprise.

In court documents filed Wednesday, federal prosecutors said the crew posed as police officers and used fake warrants to arrest drug traffickers.

The crew then robbed those it arrested of their money and their stashes of marijuana, heroin, ecstasy and cocaine, authorities said.

...In 2006 and 2007, Tejada participated in three robberies, prosecutors say, stealing thousands of dollars while dressed in his police uniform. In one of the cases, the crew stormed a Bronx home searching for cocaine.

"The crew mistakenly believed the residents to be drug dealers," court documents said. "In fact, the residents were a family of three, including a teenager, who had no involvement in drug dealing."

To add insult to injury Tejada might be denied bail because he's a flight risk. They are afraid he might go back to the Dominican Republic.

Sandcrawler PSA: Being A Dirty White Boy is Bad Mkay

If you're not feeling enough white guilt, maybe this wristband will help you.


The real vocation of some people entrusted with delivering primary and secondary education is to validate this proposition: The three R’s — formerly reading, ’riting and ’rithmetic — now are racism, reproduction and recycling. Especially racism. Consider Wisconsin’s Department of Public Instruction. It evidently considers “instruction” synonymous with “propaganda,” which in the patois of progressivism is called “consciousness-raising.”

Wisconsin’s DPI, in collaboration with the Orwellian-named federal program VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America; the “volunteers” are paid), urged white students to wear white wristbands “as a reminder about your privilege, and as a personal commitment to explain why you wear the wristband.” A flyer that was on the DPI Web site and distributed at a DPI-VISTA training class urged whites to “put a note on your mirror or computer screen as a reminder to think about privilege,” to “make a daily list of the ways privilege played out” and to conduct an “internal dialogue” asking questions such as “How do I make myself comfortable with privilege?” and “What am I doing today to undo my privilege?”

I'm not doing anything to undo my privilege because I'm a Filthy Drunken Irishman and we're like totally oppressed. Its just our culture.

Al Shabaab via Twitter [@HSMPress1] Claims To Have Classified Docs From The Somali President's Office

Their "Press Release" via TwitLonger:


PRESS RELEASE: Classified documents retrieved from the office of the Somali president.

Mogadishu (03/04/2013). In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful

Harakat Al-Shabaab Al Mujahideen intelligence teams have retrieved some very valuable documents from the office of the apostate Somali president inside the Presidential Palace in Mogadishu. The documents contain highly confidential information, including detailed intelligence reports, internal memos, planned operational details and other classified material.

Some of the documents contain letters received from an influential Arab regime instructing the apostate president to name certain individuals for specific posts within his government so as to facilitate better cooperation and sharing of intelligence between the two countries.

We will publish some of the documents on Twitter in the coming hours and the rest will be published when deemed appropriate Insha-Allaah.

I wonder if Somalis President calls al-Shabaab the "African Taliban" like the Jawa Report does.

Bad: 8 Year Old Fights in Syria
Worse: 8 Year Old Has Assault Rifle in Syria
OMFG! 8 Year Old Smokes Cigarettes in Syria


This video has just a little of everything to offend.

Child soldier? Check.
Child with an "assault rifle"? Check.
Child smoking a cigarette? Check.

In fact, it's almost too good to fact check. What more evidence do we need that the Syrian opposition are full of monsters?

Sure, they get their kids to help them murder the people they capture by cutting off their heads. Eh, it's been done.

But this? This is something that's really offensive.

If you really want kids like this saved, why not forego the Marines altogether and call in the big guns: The New Jersey Department of Youth and Family Services.

I kid, I kid.

But not really. Pictures of this kid "Ahmed" have gone viral. I don't seem to recall the same outrage when a video showing a Syrian kid beheading a man came to light.

This is just a little bit too on the nose, don't you think? I'm tempted to call BS if for no other reason that the fact that the Assad regime has been known to hire European PR companies in order to sell a favorable image to the West. And what could be better to win over liberal nanny-staters than this?

Fatah vs Hamas/Hamas vs Fatah

Except when it comes to Israel as they both want to annihilate the Juice

Later, Hamas condemned this immoral act.

The Gaza Strip’s Hamas [terrorists..ed] movement condemned the actions of students from the West Bank's Fatah party who hanged an effigy of the emir of Qatar, Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al-Thani on Tuesday.

Hamas expressed its rejection of what it described as an "immoral act" carried out by students from the Palestine Technical University in the West Bank city of Tulkarem during the closing ceremony of the university's student council elections.[More]

You can show your delight in all of this by tweeting to Hamas.

Super Tiny Minority of Islamic Extremists Attack Ultra Tiny Minority of Cross Worshippers

Let me guess, because they disrespected Islam?

LAHORE - In a renewed attack on minorities, a violent Muslim mob attacked a Christian locality in Gujranwala on Wednesday, damaging shops, houses and vehicles belonging to the local Christians following a clash between the youths of the two communities last night, Pakistan Today has learnt.

According to initial information, a group of Christian boys was snubbed by a local cleric for playing music on their cell phones while passing by a mosque on Tuesday evening.

He said that around 2pm, a Muslim mob from the nearby Naroki village attacked the neighbourhood, ransacking shops, houses and around 5-7 vehicles parked on the road. “We saw a police mobile of the area’s checkpost parked in the vicinity but they did not intervene and let the mob damage our property,” he said, adding that the mob dispersed after local Christians took out their weapons and started firing in the air to deter them.

Gee its like I'm Muad'Dib or something.

Latest Hudna Ending

So the Mujahideen Shura Council in Gaza is upset that Hamas is holding some of their terrorists who won't mind the ruling terrorists in Gaza.

So in traditional protest the Mujahideen Shura Council shot some rockets at Israel.

So then Israel took out some Jihadi rocket launchers and issued a warning about attacks on Israel. Which got them labeled as bullies by CAIR for failing understand that Islamic terrorist groups always settle their issues by killing Jews. Its just their culture.

The Obama administration is engaged in a broad push to make more home loans available to people with weaker credit, an effort that officials say will help power the economic recovery but that skeptics say could open the door to the risky lending that caused the housing crash in the first place

Housing officials are urging the Justice Department to provide assurances to banks, which have become increasingly cautious, that they will not face legal or financial recriminations if they make loans to riskier borrowers who meet government standards but later default.

When the loans go bad Obama and Barney Frank will hold a joint press conference and sing Its All Boooshes' Fault in blessed show tune type harmony.

Mystery Solved!

The whereabouts of two Jihadis who left Canada has been solved Investigators were able to determine that two piles of meat near the natural gas plant in Algeria that was attacked by of Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb were all that was left of Ali Medlej and Xristos Katsiroubas.

National Post:Newly released school yearbook photos of two Canadian men linked to a deadly terrorist attack on an Algerian have cast new light on their pasts in a small Ontario city.


Citing unidentified sources, the CBC said Ali Medlej and Xristos Katsiroubas, high school friends from London, Ont., were the two Canadians whose bodies were found amidst the carnage of a isolated gas plant siege in January.

Apparently Mokhtar Belmokhtar valued these young recruits as expendable Islamic drones.

Why Are Two Chicago Teachers Union [CTU] Thugs Concerned With Penis Sizes?

Jeremy Segal [aka Rebel Pundit] was assaulted covering the CTU march against school closures.

By Steve Gunn

CHICAGO – The Chicago Teachers Union and the Chicago Police Department were obviously working in tandem last Wednesday, and EAGnews reporter Jeremy Segal was an unwanted party crasher.

Why else would the police arrest two union supporters for allegedly assaulting Segal during a union protest, then turn around and let them go without pursuing charges?

Segal was in Chicago Wednesday to film and interview protesters participating in a downtown rally against the planned closing of 54 public schools.

The rally was sponsored by the radical Chicago Teachers Union. Segal spent part of his time interviewing CTU President Karen Lewis, who stood mute for most of his questions, and the Rev. Jesse Jackson, who answered a few.

A while after his first encounter with Lewis and Jackson, Segal noticed a banner at the head the protest march representing the International Socialist Organization. He returned to where Lewis and Jackson were walking together, hoping to ask Jackson a question about the propriety of protesting with socialists[...]

Despite the obvious injustice of the incident, Segal said he probably will not pursue the matter any further.

“I wasn’t planning on it,” he said. “They didn’t hurt me. But I do think they infringed on my rights. They infringed on my First Amendment right to conduct my business. Jesse Jackson and Karen Lewis never told me to stop asking questions. None of their handlers or staff asked me to stop asking questions. If they felt I was in the wrong, they would have gone to the police to get rid of me.

“Instead they put the union muscle on me.”

"Penis size"?

No Purple Hearts for Ft. Hood

Because, you know, Nidal Hassan worked with Anwar al-Awlaki who advised him to attack the US on behalf of AQAP. The AQAP branch of al-Qaeda is at war with the US. They have attempted to attack us several times directly and by attempting to smuggle bombs on aircraft. During his Jihad Nidal Hassan shouted Allahu Ackbar as he attacked a US military installation.

All this ads up to workplace violence.

ABC via Yahoo:

The Department of Defense is making it clear: The military opposes awarding Purple Hearts to the victims of the Fort Hood shooting.
A Pentagon position paper, delivered to congressional staff on Friday and obtained by ABC News, says giving the award to the Fort Hood victims could "irrevocably alter the fundamental character of this time-honored decoration" and "undermine the prosecution of Major Nidal Hasan [the alleged Fort Hood shooter] by materially and directly compromising Major Hasan's ability to receive a fair trial."

The Department prepared the paper in response to legislation introduced by Rep. John Carter, (R.-Texas), the Congressman whose district includes Fort Hood. The Fort Hood Families Benefits Protection Act would award both military and civilian casualties of the Fort Hood attack combatant status.

You know there was a time where Nidal Hassan would have been hanged within a week of his little jihad and folks would have seen it as a good excuse for a picnic.

Those were the days.

Sudden Jihad at San Jose WalMart?

The story suggests the perp, Haamid Zaid, was on drugs. But the fact that the guy was high doesn't really explain the attack, does it? I mean, people get high all the time. I guess a lot depends on what drugs he was under the influence of.

So, why did Haamid Zaid try to kill random people at at San Jose WalMart with his car?

I'm not saying he was motivated by jihad, but since the MSM always discounts the possibility it's something to keep in mind:

Police released the name of a man Monday who allegedly crashed his car through the entrance of a Walmart store in San Jose then attacked customers randomly before being detained by a group of good Samaritans.

Haamid Zaid, 33, of Seaside, was arrested Sunday on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, hit-and-run, being under the influence of drugs and resisting arrest, according to Ofc. Albert Morales, public information officer for San Jose Police.

Sandcrawler PSA: Lashkar-e-Jhangvi and You

Read SOFREPS series on the Islamist group Lashkar-e-Jhangvi. As we know of many Pakistian Islamist groups no matter how you spell it, its still says Qaeda al-Jihad.

On January 10, 2013, three bombs exploded in the city of Quetta, Pakistan. The first bomb went off in the early hours in a food market. It killed 12 people and injured 47. The United Baloch Army claimed responsibility. The second and third bombs went off in a one-two punch later in the evening hours. A suicide bomber hit a snooker hall popular with Shias, and ten minutes later, after police and journalists arrived on the scene, another bomb exploded just outside the building. The evening death toll was 96 people, with over 170 injured in the blasts, the majority of victims were Shias. Lashkar-e-Jhangvi claimed responsibility for the latter attacks.

On February 22, the Punjab Police released their ‘Most Wanted Terrorists’ list, naming 109 men. The first surprise – not a single member of Lashkar-e-Taiba [LeT], the terror organization responsible for the brutal massacre in Mumbai in 2008, made the list. 109 slots – no LeT. Topping the updated Pakistan terror list is Lashkar-e-Jhangvi [LeJ], the terror outfit who, according to Interior Minister Malik, is responsible for or tied to 80 percent of terror activities in Pakistan.

Part II of the series is here.
On September 20, 2011 a bus full of Pakistani citizens departed Quetta for Taftan, Balochistan on pilgrimage. En route to the Iranian border, the bus was intercepted by gunmen from Lashkar-e-Jhangvi. Kushal Khan, the bus driver, says that 8-10 gunmen in jeeps came in from the opposite direction, blocking the bus. The men were armed with AK-47s and RPGs. Once the bus was stopped, the gunmen boarded the bus and ordered the passengers off the bus.

As firing began, people started running like headless chickens,” Rajab Ali, a survivor, told The Express Tribune, at the District Headquarters Hospital in Quetta. “One of the assailants was filming the incident.”

Elder of Zion Extracts Apology From Miftah

Free Beacon:

Following a rash of criticism from U.S. Jewish groups, a Palestinian nonprofit funded by Western governments has apologized for accusing Jewish people of using “Christian blood” during the Passover holiday.

Miftah, a Palestinian nonprofit group founded by Hanan Ashrawi, a Palestinian lawmaker, said Monday it regrets publishing an article on its website accusing “the Jews [of using] the blood of Christians in the Jewish Passover.”

Miftah had refused to apologize for the article last week, instead lashing out at pro-Israel bloggers who highlighted the offensive article.

Heartbreak! The I Will Cut Rr Neck Fatwa Issued Against Jabba’s Palace

Austria’s Turks sued Lego for portraying Jabba The Hutt as an obese, hookah–smoking alien who keeps Princess Leia in chains for use as his personal sex slave.

Lego added the “Jabba’s Palace” playset to its Star Wars collection in 2012. But in January this year the set started to provoke outrage in Austria’s Islamic community after a Muslim father found that his sister had given one to his son as a present.

Furious Muslim critics complained that the Lego set’s Asian and oriental figures were “deceitful and criminal” characters such as gun-runners, slave masters and terrorists.

“This sort of thing does not belong in a child’s bedroom,” said Melissa Gunes, a spokeswoman for Austria’s Turkish Cultural Association. Critics also claimed that the palace had an uncanny resemblance to Istanbul’s Hagia Sophia mosque. “The game is pedagogical dynamite. It depicts Muslims as terrorists,” the TCA complained, adding that Jabba was shown to be a “terrorist who likes to smoke hookah and have his victims killed”

Must have been a copyright issue.... or maybe the Muslim community thought it too closely resembled Mehmed the Conqueror and Hagia Sophia. Or maybe..... nah, better not go there. I might get a Fatwa.

Easter Miracle in Nigeria: They Aren't Risen!

14 bad guys dead, none of them came back to life. Yet. Never totally rule out zombification. It could happen.

They were snuffed before they could celebrate Easter in their traditional manner -- by blowing people up:

Soldiers raided a suspected hideout for Islamist extremist group Boko Haram in northern Nigeria’s largest city of Kano on Sunday, sparking a clash that left 15 people dead, the military said.

The military claimed that those killed included 14 Islamists and one soldier, while alleging the extremists were planning an Easter day attack in the city.

Last year, the group killed 50 in an Easter bombing.

Red on Red: Al Nusrah Front Leader Killed in Syria

Just a quick note as I have to finish eating this popcorn before it gets cold. The caveat here is that the source is Iranian:

Syrian army forces have killed Adnan al-Haj Ali better known as Abi Mohammd Joulani, leader of al-Nusra Front in Syria, announced a Syrian opposition source affiliated with Ahfad bani Omaiya in Rif, Damascus....

Reports had it that al-Haj Ali and his Syrian deputy Mostafa Al-Badawi have been killed in an air attack by a Syrian MiG fighter jet.

Al-Badawi was one of al-Qaeda high ranking authorities, who commanded thousands of forces the Front employed in Syria. He was from Homs and cooperated with active terrorist groups in Persian Gulf littoral Arab countries to bring Arab gunmen into Syria.

F*cking Arabs!

Its a bit long, but she's really going for a Fatwa!

l Feki found that demonstrators for political freedom in Tahrir Square during the 2011 Egyptian Revolution had little interest in also promoting sexual freedom. That's because most Arabs derive their sexual mores from their religious beliefs. The only way to bring more sexual freedom to the Arab world, she argues, is through Islam, which was far more tolerant of the needs of the flesh a thousand years ago than it is today.

On March 13, 2013, El Feki joined novelist and former sex worker Tracy Quan for "Sex and the Citadel: Does the Arab Spring need a Summer of Love?," an event hosted by the Reason Foundation at New York City's Museum of Sex.

Totally 100% Random Easter Shooting

Star Beacon:

Children screamed in terror and hid under the pews at Hiawatha Church of God in Christ on Sunday, witnesses said, as an Ashtabula man was shot and killed by his son just after the Easter service.


“Witnesses at the scene said the shooter entered church and made some references to Allah, but we are not sure if that was a motive or if there was a family problem, Stell said. “We have no motive confirmed with family members. There is no indication that the father and son had a bad relationship. Everyone thinks this was very surprising.”

The suspect Reshad Riddle's facebook account is here. Googling the profile name brings up a reference to Genesis, Cain and Able for one.

It appears he is a jailhouse revert to Islam and also gangsta.

Reshad Riddle’s Facebook wall is private, but several photo links with comments are visible publicly. In those comments, Reshad Riddle mentions God, Allah and the Bible. Ten hours before the shooting, Reshad Riddle commented on his own horoscope, “Is skripture into flesh, As they kame before me.”

At the same time, Reshad Riddle also posted a photo about getting mad with the note “They bout to find out how real” with the word “scripture” and several numbers.

The Call

An American Muslim calls a talk radio show:

Notice how the host of the show, Maria Milito, stumbles over herself to insist she is not "anti-Muslim" or "anti-Islam." The left has difficulties in rejecting intolerant views while at the same time, embracing the ideology that fosters those views. It's a fine line for them to walk, criticizing sharia without being "Islamophobic."

Transcript of the call below the fold, courtesy of Breitbart:

Host: Hi, Chris.

Chris: Hi. My opinion is something you’re not going to agree with.

Host: That’s okay.

Chris: I'm Muslim and I believe 110 percent in Sharia law. Sharia law needs to be implemented in the United States because that's the only way this deviant lifestyle will be corrected. You know what happens in Saudi Arabia and other Islamic countries to the gay people, correct?

Host: Mm-hmm. I don’t agree with it

Chris: They are beheaded, and that I believe --I'm going to fight as hard as I can with all of my brothers and sisters to make Sharia law in the United States.

Host: So people should be beheaded for being gay? I mean, c’mon, this is America!

Chris: This is a sin! No, you don’t like --you’re anti-Muslims?

Host: I’m not anti-Muslims, but—

Chris: You are anti-Muslims if you’re saying that about my religion.

Host: I didn’t say that. I’m saying about America.

Chris: About my religion? No. In America? We’re Americans too.

Host: You really believe people should be beheaded?

Chris: Yes, of course. Government should do that.

Host: So you have no friends that are gay, Chris?

Chris: No, I don’t.

Host: Okay, And if you did—

Chris: I don’t choose to associate with those people. No, no. That lifestyle is deviant, and it’s against Islam.

Host: That’s fine –

Chris: And sharia should come to the United States, obviously --

Host: --to feel that way but to believe that they should be beheaded is a little extreme, don’t you think?

Chris: --but you’re going to call the whole kingdom of Saudi Arabia extreme?

Host: I’m just saying beheading people for their sexual preference is extreme. Those are my words.

Chris: No, but you’re against Muslim countries then. You’re against Islam.

Host: I’m not against Islam. There are people who are Islam—Islamic in America

Chris: Do you know the law? Do you know sharia law?

Host: Do I? No, I was raised Catholic.

Chris: Maybe you should look into sharia and look into the countries that have sharia and what the penalty is for being gay.

She should also look into the countries that have sharia and how they treat women.
