Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Hezbollah Celebrate Boston Terror Attack
By Israel News Agency Staff
Jerusalem, Israel --- April 15, 2013 Shortly after terror bombs exploded and murdered over 12 people at the Boston Marathon, members of Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Hezbollah were reported to be dancing in the streets of Gaza, handing out candies to passerbys.
A number of Palestinians had danced in the street in celebration of the 9/11 attacks in 2001 on the World Trade Center and Washington resulting in the deaths of thousands of Americans.
The head of an Islamic terror organization in Jordan - the Muslim Salafi group says hes happy to see the horror in America after the bombing attacks in Boston.
American blood isnt 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 today.
A Mideast counterterrorism official based in Jordan said the blasts carry the hallmark of an organized terrorist group, like al-Qaeda.
The New York Post has reported that at least 12 people are dead and over 100 injured including up to 15 with amputated limbs after two bombs ripped through the finish line of the Boston Marathon.
Police and FBI were guarding a person of interest at a local hospital, according to a New York Post report confirmed by Fox News. The person, who sources said was 20 years old, had severe burns, but authorities had not determined whether the person was a victim or a perpetrator. Boston Police Commissioner Edward Davis said during a press conference that no suspect has yet been charged.
The Boston terror bombings took place just before 3 p.m. and reports of two other unexploded bombs were found near the scene reinforced that this was indeed a terrorist attack. Intelligence officials told The Associated Press two unexploded devices were being dismantled. Competitors and race organizers were crying as they fled the bloody chaos, while some witnesses reported seeing victims with lost limbs.
"Somebody's leg flew by my head," a spectator, who gave his name as John Ross, told the Boston Herald. I gave my belt to stop the blood.
The first two bombings occurred at 2:50 p.m. nearly five hours after the marathon began about 50 to 100 yards apart, according to Davis. A third explosion occurred near the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum in the Columbia Point section of Dorchester, several miles southeast of the marathon's finish line, at around 4:15 p.m. Police could not say if it was related to the earlier explosions.
The FBI, which was treating the bombing as a terrorist investigation, was analyzing video from several area surveillance cameras.
Over twenty-six people were transported to Brigham and Women's Hospital, including a 3-year-old, who was then taken to a children's hospital. A doctor at the hospital said at least two of the patients there are in critical condition and that some have burns and injuries that will likely require amputations.
Witnesses heard booms that sounded like two claps of thunder near the finish line inside the Fairmount Copley Plaza Hotel, according to multiple local reports. The terror attack unfolded as the city marked the 238th annual Patriot's Day, commemorating the anniversary of the Battles of Lexington and Concord at the beginning of the Revolutionary War.
President Obama said Monday that those responsible will "feel the full weight of justice." The President assured that the administration is mobilizing its "full resources" to help investigate and provide security.
The President addressed the US from the White House briefing room just hours after the bombing attacks in Boston. Obama has been in contact with Massachusetts officials regarding the fatal terror attack and has directed his administration to provide "whatever assistance is necessary."
A White House official said the president called Boston Mayor Tom Menino and Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick earlier Monday to "express his concern for those who were injured and to make clear that his administration is ready to provide needed support as they respond to the incident."
Obama was briefed by Homeland Security adviser Lisa Monaco and other members of his senior staff Monday afternoon, as well as by FBI Director Robert Mueller and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone impacted by this incident in Boston, especially the families and loved ones of those injured," said US Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano.
"Federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies continue to respond, and at the Presidents direction, the Department of Homeland Security is providing any support necessary in this ongoing investigation. We encourage the public to be vigilant, and to listen to direction from state and local officials.
Officals in Jerusalem expressed regret for the senseless loss of life in Boston and declared that the people of Israel had the people of Boston in their thoughts and prayers. Israel Humanitarian Aid stated that if needed, they would fly to Boston to provide assistance to first responders and the terror victims.
“What I wouldnt give to be on the West Bank tonight with an M240 and all the belts I could carry.”
I don’t feel any such rage this time, not even sadness. I spent much of the last 4 years horrified at what the people of Boston have helped do to the rest of us. I guess a part of me don’t feel they are our countrymen anymore.
So its kind of like an attack upon foreigners, in fact that’s exactly how it feels.
From this point on, if this ever happens again and haj wants to dance in the streets, I say the coordinates of their location are downloaded into the closest missile or rocket(JDAM, Tomahawk, etc). Launch the weapon and vaporize them all. There won’t be too much dancing the next time.
Catherine Herridge on Fox just announced a Saudi National, 20-22 yrs old on a student visa is being questioned. There have been rumors, but finally it has been announced on the MSM. Catherine Herridge is an excellent reporter.
Grover Norquist’s friends.
And Grover Norquist.
They DO have quite an extensive history of such actions not to mention the violent jihad encouragements within the Koran and the religious madrassahs that inculcate hatred almost from the cradle. Perhaps if more "moderate" Muslims actually voiced their objections to such actions and were seen to discourage public rejoicing over terrorist acts, people may start to hold off judgment until more facts are known. In the meantime, it is NOT unjust profiling for Islamists to be thought the initial villains when acts of terrorism first happen.
Israel has been living in the midst of the rats' nest for decades (really thousands of years) and they have experienced the insanity firsthand. They show amazing restraint and self-control when faced with such belligerent and hostile neighbors who commit acts of violence against innocent civilians without hesitation. I pray for the peace of Israel. One day, Almighty God WILL make it right and brings down his justice upon those who love and rejoice in evil.
He also said he would always stand with the Muslims, should the political winds blow an ugly direction...
These are the people we are arming, in various places of the world.
Sick. Disgustingly sick.
I wonder when someone is going to bring up the fact that the Obama administration had dropped the ball on fighting Islamic terrorism to refocuses many of those resources on his political enemies in an effort to label them terrorist.
That the last two Terrorist attack attempts failed only because the terrorist themselves fouled up, and the Obama Administration still hasn’t gotten the clue.
Sure. Like WC Fields liked babies; well done.
Welcome America to the party. Keep voting commie and see how that works out.
