Search For Why Begins In Boston Marathon Bombings [Obama: "Unanswered Questions"]

Search For Why Begins In Boston Marathon Bombings

By David Montgomery, Sari Horwitz and Robert Barnes

WATERTOWN, Mass. — With one suspect dead and the other captured, investigators on Saturday turned from the manhunt for those responsible for the Boston Marathon bombings to questions about their motivation and whether they had help.

The investigation turns on a seriously wounded teenager, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, found hiding Friday night in a boat parked behind a house here.

President Obama framed what comes next when he addressed the nation Friday night after police captured the 19-year-old.

“Obviously, there are still many unanswered questions,” he said. “Among them, why did young men who grew up and studied here as part of our communities and our country resort to such violence? How did they plan and carry out these attacks? And did they receive help?”

Investigators in Washington and elsewhere are gathering whatever information they can about the two brothers, according to senior law enforcement officials involved in the effort.

No...It's who else....

This is Islam. This is why it was created...This is why Mohammed had dreams...This is where the lies began. There is no goodness in Islam. It is evil. People are puppets.

I had a very old book with a picture of a wild looking Muslim on a horse...The caption..."With the Koran in one hand and a sword in the other"

If the bombers were white natural born Americans, the media would be telling us why-conservatism, the NRA, talk radio and Sarah Palin. They have no trouble connecting the dots in that case, but the Islamic connection will perpetually elude them, just like the idea that the Ft. Hood shooting was Islamic terrorism. They will NEVER acknowledge this simple truth.

Among them, why did young men who grew up and studied here as part of our communities and our country resort to such violence?

Well, Cambridge Rindge and Latin may have had something to do with it.

If you think a radical muslim hates America, that's nothing compared to how much a liberal schoolteacher hates America.

The mainstream media is not going to be able to avoid mentioning Islam in connection with this story.

However, I expect they will adopt the strategy of playing up the Chechen nationalism angle in order to overshadow talk of global jihad.

With the Chechen nationalism angle they can make the Chechens out to be victims, and maybe even find a way to work in a few shots at George W. Bush.

What would drive two young American men to do something so terrible to people they know so well? We may never be able to answer this question.

Why? Because a simple primitive throwback Chechen had no respect for the SWPL sissy boys of the North Eastern liberal corridor. In his opinion the white male lib/con bloc of sissies that dominate that area are only fit to be male prostitutes for Mooslim dominate males.

WHY?? THIS IS WHY:

THE KORAN INSTRUCTS MUSLIMS TO FIGHT CHRISTIANS, JEWS AND CONQUER THE WORLD FOR ISLAM:

(The following are only a few of the verses commanding Muslims to fight)

WARFARE IS ORDAINED FOR YOU, though it is hateful unto you; but it may happen that you hate a thing which is good for you and it may happen that you love a thing which is bad for you. (2.216)

“AND FIGHT THEM UNTIL THERE IS NO PERSECUTION , AND RELIGION SHALL BE ONLY FOR ALLAH 2:193

If you refuse to fight, Allah will afflict you with a painful doom. 9:39

Believers must fight for Allah. They must kill and be killed , and are bound to do so by the Torah, Gospel, and Quran. But Allah will reward them for it. 9:111

Fight those among the People of the Book [i.e. Jews and Christians] ... who do not profess the true religion, until they pay tribute out of hand and are utterly subdued. (9.29)

ISLAM IS THE MOST RACIST, BIGOTED RELIGION, AND THE KORAN IS FILLED WITH HATE FOR ALL OTHER THAN MUSLIMS:

(It is taught in textbooks in some Muslims countries today that Christians are monkeys and Jews are pigs)

Christians will be burned in the Fire. 5:72

Whoever says Muhammad was black must be killed…(Ash-Shifa, Tr. Aisha Abdarrahman, 2004)

Disbelievers’ faces will be black on the judgment day and they will receive God’s penalty...3:106 White faces on the judgment day will receive God’s mercy...3:107

Allah will reward the doers of good with paradise and much more, their faces will be radiant-stained; they will never be humiliated. The unbelievers’ faces will be turned dark…10:26-27

Ahmad ibn Abi Sulayman, the companion of Sahnun said, “Anyone who says that the Prophet was black should be killed. (ibid, p.375)

In one Hadith, Mohammed referred to Blacks as Raisn Heads (Sahih Al Bukhary vol. 1, no. 662 and vol. 9, no. 256), and as pug nosed slaves in Sahih Moslem vol. 9 pages 46 and 47.

Christians are wrong about the Trinity. For that they will have a painful doom. 5:73

Give tidings (O Muhammad) of a painful doom to the rich and greedy Christian monks and Jewish rabbis.9:34

Jesus was not the Son of God. Those who say he was (Christians) are going to hell. 19:35-37

Scourge adulteresses with 100 stripes. Do not show them any pity. Have a party of believers watch the punishment. 24:2

Tabari IX:113: “Allah permits you to shut them (women) in separate rooms and to beat them, but not severely. If they abstain, they have the right to food and clothing. Treat women well for they are like domestic animals and they possess nothing themselves. Allah has made the enjoyment of their bodies lawful in his Quran.”

Tabari I:280: “Allah said, ‘It is My obligation to make Eve bleed once every month as she made this tree bleed. I must also make Eve stupid, although I created her intelligent.’ Because Allah afflicted Eve, all of the women of this world menstruate and are stupid.”

EVIL-CRUELTY IN THE KORAN

Sura (5:33) - “The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides...”

Those who die fighting for Allah will go to heaven. 3:195 Those who make war with Allah and his messenger will be killed or crucified, or have their hands and feet on alternate sides cut off, or will be expelled out of the land. That is how they will be treated in this world, and in the next they will have an awful doom.

5:33 The transgressors will roast in the Fire and be forced to drink boiling liquids followed by ice cold drinks. 38:55-9

Quran 8:12: “Instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers;”

Quran 22:19-22: “… for them (the unbelievers) garments of fire shall be cut and there shall be poured over their heads boiling water whereby whatever is in their bowels and skin shall be dissolved and they will be punished with hooked iron rods.”

Quran 8:12: “Your Lord inspired the angels with the message: ‘I will terrorize the unbelievers. Therefore smite them on their necks and every joint and incapacitate them. Strike off their heads and cut off each of their fingers and toes.’”

Quran 8:7: “Allah wished to confirm the truth by His words: ‘Wipe the infidels out to the last.’

Quran 8:59: “The infidels should not think that they can get away from us. Prepare against them whatever arms and weaponry you can muster so that you may terrorize them. They are your enemy and Allah’s enemy.”

Quran 8:60: “Prepare against them whatever arms and cavalry you can muster that you may strike terror in the enemies of Allah, and others besides them not known to you.”

Quran 9.29” “Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Apostle have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth, out of those who have been given the Book, until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and they are in a state of subjection.”

Quran 47:4: “Strike off the heads of the disbelievers” and, after making a “wide slaughter among them, carefully tie up the remaining captives.”

Quran 9:5: “When the sacred forbidden months for fighting are past, fight and kill the disbelievers wherever you find them, take them captive, torture them, and lie in wait and ambush them using every stratagem of war.”

Sura 3:151: “Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the unbelievers for that they joined companions with Allah for which He had sent no authority: their abode will be the fire; and evil is the home of the wrong-doers!”

Sura 8:60: “Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power including steeds of war to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies of Allah and your enemies and others besides whom ye may not know but whom Allah doth know. Whatever ye shall spend in the cause of Allah shall be repaid unto you and ye shall not be treated unjustly.”

Ishaq:327: “Allah said, ‘A prophet must slaughter before collecting captives. A slaughtered enemy is driven from the land. Muhammad, you craved the desires of this world, its goods and the ransom captives would bring. But Allah desires killing them to manifest the religion.’”

THE KORAN PROMISES COUNTRIES TO CONQUER AND THE SPOILS THERIN:

Sura 33 “And he bequeathed to you their lands, their homes and their possessions, together with land you have never trodden” (33.27) .

MUSLIMS ARE INSTRUCTED IN THE KORAN TO BE STILL UNTIL THEY HAVE THE NUMBERS IN THE COUNTRIES THEY HAVE INVADED:

“Be patient with unbelievers until you have strength” (86.17).

THE KORAN INSTRUCTS MUSLIMS TO BE DECEPTIVE:
Quran 3:28 Don’t have unbelieving friends unless it is to deceive them. Remember the final goal is to Allah.

SHARIA LAW MUST RULE THE WORLD

Allah’s law (Sharia) is binding to all…4:135

Allah accepts only Sharia and no other laws…7:29, 57:25

Allah is the Law-giver; He appointed Muhammad to implement the only correct laws (Sharia laws)…45:18

Quran 9:33 ISLAM WILL PREVAIL OVER ALL RELIGIONS

THE FOUNDER OF CAIR HAS TOLD US PLAINLY OF ISLAM’S OBJECTIVE IN AMERICA:

“ISLAM ISN’T IN AMERICA TO BE EQUAL TO ANY OTHER FAITH, BUT TO BECOME DOMINANT. The Koran ... should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on earth. Everthing we need to know is in the Koran. We don’t need to look somewhere else.”

OMAR M. AHMAD, CHAIRMAN OF CAIR, the mainsteam Muslim advocacy group.

_______________________

Every “moderate” Muslim is a potential terrorist. The belief in Islam is like a tank of gasoline. It looks innocuous, until it meets the fire. For a “moderate” Muslim to become a murderous jihadist, all it takes is a spark of faith.

Once again, Limbaugh calls it.
The left and the media are circling the wagons.
WaPo now refers to Dzhokhar Tsarnaev as a” seriously wounded teenager”. Broncho Bamma in telling us to hold of in judging and we will see more as the days go by.
My guess is both the left and the media will attempt to convince us that it is all the fault of G. W. Bush and the right wing in this country. Hell, they probably will succeed with 50+%.

Without more of a timeline involving the mother, I'm just guessing here, but knowing the liberal machine, the spin will slowly turn to: Rough childhood escaping a war torn region, coming to America, facing persecution as immigrants, bullying in school due to their foreign looks and accents, culminating in the unfair prosecution of their mother for shoplifting, and the devastating effect that her minor charge had on the family when she was forced to return to her native country, depriving the boys of their mother.

That the bombs were actually aimed at Lord & Taylor, and it just so happened that there was a marathon going on at the time, so they couldn't plant them directly in front of the store...

What BS propaganda. The Post isn’t even good at its main activity.

Why did he bomb Boston? Because his “holy” Koran told him to, that’s why.

For a bunch of editors who like to fancy themselves as educated and well read, they sure avoid reading the “holy” Koran’s dozens and dozens and dozens of exhortations for Muslims to kill (or subjugate) Christians and Jews.

This is an amazingly selective “ignorance” — and not in the least credible.

It isn’t important.

What is important is to get the whole gang and hang them by the neck until dead.

They may have grown up here, but they obviously did not feel they were “part of our communities and our country” instead they had strong loyalties elsewhere.

This country used to insist that immigrants assimilate into our culture, learn to speak our language and become Americans. Foreigners that acted like foreigners were treated as outsiders until they conformed to our culture. We had a melting pot, but were all Americans.

Now we insist on people keeping their own culture, language- it is not politically correct to even suggest they should assimilate. We now have a “salad bowl” instead of a melting pot and are losing our culture and facing danger from immigrants both legal and illegal.
