'He's a quiet, devout Muslim - he couldn't do that': Neighbors' shock as police raid Boston home lin
Daily Mail ^ | 4/15/13 | Matt Blake, Katie Davies and Rachel Quigley

Posted on 04/16/2013 9:16:07 AM PDT by Nachum

Neighbors of the Saudi student who was detained for 'acting suspiciously' at the marathon finish line said they were shocked to hear he had any involvement in the bombing as he is a 'quiet, devout Muslim who is a huge soccer fan'.

Detectives and bomb disposal officers raided his apartment last night in the Revere area of Boston and could be seen removing several bags of evidence.

The 20-year-old, who is studying English, is in hospital after suffering from serious burns and is said to be cooperating fully with police. He was tackled to the ground by a civilian who believed he was acting suspiciously.

So, the neighbors think a “devout Muslim” doesn’t believe they need to convert or die?

the problem is not that he is quiet,
the problem is that he is a devout Muslim

(when they get devout, they take their Koran seriously, and it is literally FILLED with hatred towards Christians and Jews... and instructions about how wonderful it is for devout Moslems to (lie to and) murder Christians and Jews

I’m OK with him being “quiet” ...

There were plenty of Jews in Germany and elsewhere in Europe who were shocked when their “quiet” neighbours turned them into the Gestapo. Once totalitarianism gets a foothold in a society, there is never a shortage of “honest” citizens who pop up willing to do the bidding of the oppressors. Holland, Denmark, France, Belgium, Poland, all had significant numbers of collaborators. It could happen here just as easily.

He DID “blend in” until it was time to attack.

This was the attack. Maybe something went a little sideways, but it was an attack anyway.

P.S. I can tell you first hand that devout Muslims LIE and LYING is their way of life. I don't understand why they even come to this country, other than try to convert anyone they can while they're here, or impregnate white females. This country is full of terrorists just waiting for their call to action. I said to my Muslim neighbor, "It's a sad day today" and he looked at me like 'What the f*** are you talking about?' He didn't even know or seem to care.

0bama increasing the number of foreign VISAS to Saudi nationals, AND special treatment by TSA is CRIMINAL and must be stopped immediately.

"Neighbors of the Saudi student who was detained for 'acting suspiciously' at the marathon finish line said they were shocked to hear he had any involvement in the bombing"

Isn't that always what the neighbors of serial killers say once there's been an arrest? "I'm shocked, shocked I tell ya. He was a nice guy. Quiet, kept to himself but never a problem."

Saudis and Jihadi-boyz in general are young men who love other men, become sexually nuts when they are in America because of it's women who dare wear a t-shirt, and become so conflicted that they seek advice from Imams on how to deal with the evil culture in America. They are then given direction that America is an evil monster with no morals, that salvation is in the Koran and it's teachings, and that jihad is their duty.

Presto! A religious overcompensating boy lover who is told to kill the infidels blows stuff up because Islam and it's god is great!

So, should we blame all Muslims in the same way the media and Democratic leaders were quick to blame all Republicans, conservatives, Tea Party patriots, and people who don’t like big government. Why not blame all Muslims, and the leftist terrorist groups that make up the Democratic Party that supports Islamist extremists?

Did you notice it was a UN “terrorism expert” who said this attack seemed more like a right-wing job than Islamic terrorism?

The UN is a communist-Islamist alliance geared toward letting those 2 groups tell the rest of the world what they will and won’t do. How long did Mohammad el-Baradai cover for Saddam Hussein and Iran so they could get their WMD programs effective before anybody “legitimate” (cough) said it was a danger?

“serious burns”

A mosque, Saturday:
Instructor: “And then, my Brother, you trigger this instrument of Allah’s revenge by pulling this string.”
Quiet, devout young Muslim: “That’s a ‘burglar alarm snap-pop’ isn’t it?”
Instructor: “Yes yes! You will have plenty of time to flee.”

I lived in Boston during 9/11. These Boston liberals are very poor judges of character. Two days after 9/11 they were out in force, holding signs saying “war is not the answer” and “give peace a chance.”

The most offensive: “Ask WHY they want to kill us,” implying, of course, that the fault was all ours.

Well, the UN expert gave away the reasoning on why this time and place was chosen. It was a crime of opportunity but it was also Boston (with a Tea Party history) on “tax day”.

IOW, the communist-Islamist alliance has learned that they can make it easier on their foreign-enemy-combatant ally in our White House (and on his treasonous media) by using OUR anniversaries rather than the Muslims’. And Obama and Axelrod bleat out the talking points from the folks who may have put the plot together...

I would not have associated Boston with the Tea Party of today just because of the Tea Party in our history. Boston is probably one of the LEAST Tea-Party-ish places. But foreigners would look at the textbook connections. Like this UN guy did.

So there we have it. That’s why Boston was chosen. Turned out convenient that they had a marathon that day too.

Again, a citizen saw a person he thought behaving suspiciously. It was not a homeland security worker who saw the person. If this suspicious person turns out to be the bomber, he will be another seen by a citizen. The homeland security police and FBI often arrest those they set up to commit crimes. Times Square bomb stopped by a street vendor. The underwear bomber stopped by a citizen. The occupy bridge bomb plotters were arrested but they were set up as part of an FBI sting.
