So many of the headlines I’m seeing today—especially the Left-leaning–are avoiding calling the two suspected Boston bombing terrorists “Muslims”. Instead they are calling them “Russians”, “Chechens”, basically every word other than what they are: Muslim.
One of the more bizarre skirting around the issues came from Governor Andrew Cuomo. On a radio interview, Cuomo blamed the Boston terrorist attack on…wait for it…climate change.
“So much of society is changing so rapidly,” Cuomo said. “We talk about a ‘new normal’ when it comes to climate change and adjusting to a change in the weather patterns. ‘New normal’ when it comes to public security in a post-9/11 world. Where these random acts of violence, which at one time were implausible, now seem all-too-frequent.”
Despite the curveballs and sparkly things the Left is throwing out there, the fact of the matter is the Boston terrorist suspects are definitely Muslim and from everything I’m reading they were extremely devout in their beliefs.
As of this writing, suspect Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, 19, of Cambridge, Mass is still on the loose. His brother, Tamerian Tsarnaev, 26, was killed last night in a shootout in Cambridge.
The Washington Post reports that while the brother’s alleged motive “remains unclear”, in the last several months “Tamerlan Tsarnaev had posted videos to YouTube indicating his interest in radical Muslim ideologies.”
One particular article from Daily Caller is especially telling as to whom Tamerlan, a Golden Gloves boxer, really was and how devoutly he followed the Quran.
In a recent photo essay interview Tamerlan said, “I don’t have a single American friend…I don’t understand them.”
From the Quran, Surah 3:118, 119: “Believers, do not make friends with any but your own people…They desire nothing but your ruin….You believe in the entire Book…When they meet you they say: ‘We, too, are believers.’ But when alone, they bite their finger-tips with rage.”
Tamaran also said: “God said no alcohol…A Muslim [SIC] There are no values anymore” and people can’t control themselves.’”
Surah 4:43: “Believers, do not approach your prayers when you are drunk, but wait till you can grasp the meaning of your words…”
In the interview, Tamerlan also says he doesn’t usually take his shirt off “so girls don’t get bad ideas…I’m very religious.”
Surah 3:14, 15: Men are tempted [in this life] by the lure of women…far better is the return of God. Say: ‘Shall I tell you of better things than these, with which the righteous shall be rewarded by their Lord? Theirs shall be gardens watered by running streams, where they shall dwell for ever: wives of perfect chastity…”
To be perfectly clear, I’m not writing this to stereotype anyone or to insinuate that all Muslims are terrorists. However in this case, it appears that is the case. Despite what the Left (and the Obama administration) continually tries to deny or disprove, Islam is the only religious ideology that literally instructs followers to eliminate infidels (aka us). And the unfortunate truth is there are millions of Islamists worldwide who believe they are obliged to make that happen.
We all know if the terrorists had fulfilled the Left’s dreams and had been ‘white, Christian, right-wing extremists’ it would be blaring across every headline. For many–including CNN and Esquire—that is exactly what they were saying even before the bomb smoke was cleared. On my appearance in this week’s episode of “The Glazov Gang” we discussed a Salon article by David Sirota called “Let’s Hope the Boston Bomber is a White American”.
Bottom line: America has very strong, very angry enemies. They are people who believe our way of life goes against everything they believe in and that it is their life’s duty to eliminate us all. This, from everything I’m reading about the brothers Tsarnaev, is exactly what the two young men believed.
“If you should die or be slain in the cause of God, His forgiveness and His mercy would surely be better than all the riches…” (Surah 3:156-)
“To those that declare: ‘God has commanded us to believe no apostle unless he brings down fire to consume an offering,’ say: ‘Other apostles before me [Muhammad] have come to you with veritable signs and worked the miracle you asked for…If they reject you [Muhammad], other apostles have been rejected before you…” (Surah 3:183-)
“Believers, when you encounter the infidels on the march, do not turn your backs to them in flight. If anyone on that day turns his back to them, except it be for tactical reasons…he shall incur the wrath of God and Hell shall be his home…” (Surah 8:12-)
“Make war on them until idolatry shall cease and God’s religion shall reign supreme.” (Surah 8:36-)
“Prophet make war on the unbelievers and the hypocrites and deal rigorously with them. Hell shall be their home.” (Surah 9:73)
“Believers, make war on the infidels who dwell around you. Deal firmly with them.” (Surah 9:121-)
