CNN's Amanpour Hoped ‘Beyond Hope’ Boston Bombing Suspects Weren't Mideast Muslims
Newsbusters ^ | April 19, 2013 | 11:16 | Tim Graham

Posted on 04/19/2013 12:17:18 PM PDT by drewh

Dave Weigel at Slate reported from an awards dinner Tuesday night for the leftish Arab American Instiute about the crowd's discomfort with the notion that the Boston assailants would turn out to "look like them." (That, I think, would mean Middle Eastern and Muslim, although AAI president James Zogby describes himself as a Maronite Catholic.) They tried not to say it out loud, he said, but then CNN's Christiane Amanpour, there to receive an award, said it for them.

"How many of us feel this burden of association and hope beyond hope that this doesn't turn out to be what it might be?" said Amanpour. "No conclusions yet." Weigel reported she read from a New York Times essay by Haider Javed Warraich, a medical resident in Boston who fretted that he didn't run into the action because as a young Pakistani male with stubble, "I look like Hollywood’s favorite post-Cold-War movie villain."

"There are no conclusions," said Amanpour. "Is it international? Is it domestic? But like all of you—I'm not Pakistani, and I'm not Arab, but I am part Iranian. And I do understand the burden of association. And I know when we know who did this, we will all unite in strong condemnation."

She’s half right. They were Chechen Muslims.

Unfortunately for her and libtards like her - it was not a white Christian Tea-Party male producing an anti-muslim video.

Hey, she get’s half her wish.

What I want to know is where did these two devils get the money for their high roller lifestyle?

(Report from mechanic who was working on their cars that they dressed in expensive clothes and drove different expensive cars. I saw another report that their mother had been convicted of shoplifting (hard way to pay for or qualify for a loan on a Mercedes). Another post I saw, said they were given money by a rich foreign student (ding, ding, ding!)

How naive must you be to deny what is plain and right in front of your face? Kazakhstan and the Chechans are very close to Iran. Who cares if this virulent disease comes from Iran, Kazakhstan, Pakistan or anywhere else in that islamic cesspool.

A muzzie sympathizer if there’s ever been one. Sorry, but a jihadist is a jihadist regardless of his race, language or national origin. There have been Chechen jiahdists involved in various conflicts. This was all predicted 5 years ago by a very prescient author, Yossef Bodansky, in “Chechen Jihad: Al Qaeda’s Training Ground and the Next Wave of Terro”

“Yossef Bodansky, the author whose #1 New York Times bestseller Bin Laden: The Man Who Declared War on America first introduced American readers to al Qaeda’s evil mastermind prior to 9/11, returns to sound an important alert. In this authoritative look at the roots of modern terrorism, Bodansky pinpoints the troubled region of Chechnya as a dangerous and little-understood crucible of terror in the struggle between East and West. Drawing on mountains of previously unseen intelligence from Islamist movements and other military and intelligence sources from throughout the Middle East, Russia, and Central Asia, Chechen Jihad offers an intimate and startling portrait of the jihadist movement that is astonishing in its detail and chilling in its implications—including new insights into the Chechen jihadists’ secret role in fighting against U.S. forces in Iraq and Afghanistan. An authoritative work of reportage and analysis, Chechen Jihad also points to a new way forward in the struggle to face down the challenges of international Islamist terrorism.”

Libs are always, always focused on race, religion and now sexual identity!

They also focus on "racial profiling" but it is they who pay far more attention when someone commits various crime and police give out BOLOs (describe the features or other known characteristics) on the perps.

Ever notice how the leftwingers always hope they can pin something like this on conservative Americans? Someone other than themselves to point their crooked little fingers at? On the other hand, rightwingers don’t give a hoot about what the perp’s politics are. They want the pig to be caught, tried and strung up from the highest tree.

Islam is incompatible with any other religion and it’s time for people to admit it. It must be eradicated or allowed to rule the world. There is no middle ground.

What is sickening is that the Left has “radicalized” the Tea Party .... and folks in the so-called Tea Party are regular folks, socially and fiscally conservative, a lot of them Christian and certainly not violent. Tea Party rallies in DC ... no problems, grounds left cleaner than than before, etc. There have been plenty of Leftist terrorists .... no Tea Party terrorists that I’m aware of.

Does this act of terrorism actually change anyone here's perspective on Muslims or more accurately Islam? If it does then you haven't been paying attention.

One good thing that may come out of this is that maybe more people, particularly liberals, will finally recognize the threat.
