My take on the Boston jihad: "The Jihad Comes to Boston" Pamela Geller, Breitbart, April 19
Now that we know that the Boston Marathon bombers were Muslims from
the Russian Caucasus, it is clear the war is here. Boston is a war zone,
yet still the media is disarming the American people by refusing to
address the blindingly obvious motive: jihad. As we have seen from
Beslan to Baghdad, Libya to Lebanon, Indonesia to India, geography is
irrelevant in the struggle of ideology.
The media is already spinning the revelation of the bombers'
identities furiously, confusing the American people with nonsense about
“regional conflicts” in the Caucasus. The Associated Press said:
“If it turns out that the suspects in the Boston bombings are linked to
those insurgencies it would mark the first time the Russian conflict
had spawned a major terror attack in the United States.” But the
objective of the jihadists in Chechnya is to establish an Islamic state
in the Caucasus. As Andrew Bostom observes, “Chechnya is the tip of the
spear for al-Qaeda.”
Chechnya is a hotbed of jihad activity. On September 1, 2004, on the first day of school, Muslim terrorists from Chechnya stormed School No. 1 in Beslan,
North Ossetia, took everyone hostage, and eventually committed one of
the most grotesque and unspeakable crimes (even for jihad) in recent
history, murdering 331 hostages, including 186 children. The jihad in Beslan targeted children; the Boston jihadis murdered a child. Beslan was even worse, as the jihadis embarked on a bloody orgy of rape and torture.
The conflict in the Caucasus dates back to 644, when Arab Muslims
introduced Islam to the region; the region has been a place of violence
and unrest ever since. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev allegedly went to school in Dagestan. According to Bostom,
“Daghestan was originally Islamized during the 7th and 8th centuries by
the Arab Muslim jihad conquests of the Umayyads and Abassids.” He notes
that Naqshbandi Sufis have been expanding Islam’s presence in the
Caucasus and waging jihad against the Russians ever since:
Presently, a Sufi Naqshbandi leader
, Shamil Basayev, who envisions himself to be in the mold of legendary
19th century Naqshbandi North Caucasus jihadists, such as his namesake
Imam Shamil, plays a key role in the ongoing Chechen jihad against the
post—Soviet Russian government. Basayev, it should be noted, not only
appears to have Caliphate dreams, he orchestrated the brutal Beslan massacre of at least 331 schoolchildren in North Ossetia, September 3, 2004.
Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev have deeply imbibed the jihad ideology
that permeates Chechnya and the Muslim areas of the Russia Caucasus in
general. And even the mainstream media can’t entirely ignore this: the New York Times reports: “On
Vkontakte, Russia’s most popular social media platform, the younger
brother, Dzhokhar, describes his worldview as ‘Islam’ and… lists a
verse from the Koran, ‘Do good, because Allah loves those who do good.’”
Apparently targeting, mutilating, and slaughtering women and children
falls under the category of “doing good.” And there is much more
regarding the brothers’ jihadi ties. Tamerlan Tsarnaev said: “I’m very religious.” He subscribed to a YouTube channel entitled "Allah is the One الله." It appears he posted a video that hails “the promised emergence of the black flags [of jihad] from the promised land of Khorasan,” and lauds jihadis who are posing “with a flag of the Taliban’s Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan.” Tamerlan reportedly died wearing a suicide vest. Debka is reporting that the brothers were “members of a Wahhabi cell funded by Saudi al Qaeda.”
