    The existence of a long waiting list for potential suicide bombers was revealed in a recent ISIS guidebook published online telling potential suicide bombers to be patient after their training period, as they’d have to deal with a long waiting list. As a result, militants are forced to spend months waiting for a suicide mission and are getting killed in battle — considered to be a less noble way to die. Kamil Abu Sultan ad-Daghestani, a pro-Islamic State preacher from Dagestan, Russia, made the accusations in a recent post on the Russian language jihadi website Qonah claiming that rich Saudi...

He called the decision a "big tragedy" for the family and "insulting to our name." Anzor Tsarnaev's sister,...

    US officials knew about the potential danger of Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev, according to a soon-to-be-released Congressional report—but a spelling error led them to miss his frequent flights out to Dagestan for terror training.

In the letter, FSB included contact information, with addresses and phone numbers, for many of the members of the Tsarnaev family, including Tamerlan and his mother, and warned that Tamerlan was gaining a reputation for associating...

Although Isakov had trouble speaking, he briefly confirmed that he was returning from performing a ritual slaughter for kosher meat when he was attacked late Thursday evening. "There was one man waiting for me,” Isakov said, “and as I was entering my house he shot me. He did not say anything and did not ask for anything. I do not...

The white jihadists are Chechens and perhaps Dagestani judging from their Russian accents. The same ethnicity as the Boston bombers, if you remember the younger bomber on his vkontakte page had web videos supporting jihad in Syria. The most disturbing aspect is all the little children there cheering people being beheaded.

    When Tamerlan Tsarnaev spent six months in the Russian region of Dagestan, he had a guide with an unusually deep knowledge of the local Islamist community: a distant cousin named Magomed Kartashov. Six years older than Tsarnaev, Kartashov is a former police officer and freestyle wrestler—and one of the region’s most prominent Islamists. In 2011 Kartashov founded and became the leader of an organization called the Union of the Just, whose members campaign for sharia law and pan-Islamic unity in Dagestan, often speaking out against U.S. policies across the Muslim world. The group publicly renounces violence. But some of its...
