Americans for Peace and Tolerance June 25 2009 Press Conference
On June 26, Governor Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino will be honored guests at the grand opening of the Islamic Society of Boston’s Cultural Center in Roxbury, Massachusetts. Americans for Peace and Tolerance wish the Boston Muslim community well in their new cultural and religious center, and we celebrate the growing religious diversity it represents. We are deeply concerned, however, about the extremist leadership of this new institution. This video is from a press conference held to discuss our concerns.

The above graphic comes from HotAir… they have good stuff over there! (Click to enlarge) Robert Spencer says “Chechnya is the Muslim area of the Caucasus that has been waging jihad against the Russians since the 19th century.”
Reportedly, Islamist terrorists have been active recruiting and training ethically European Muslims not only in Chechnya, but also in Albania and in the former Yugoslavian region of Bosnia-Herzegovina. (Examiner)
I called it! And I’m taking credit. I posted here at LR, and in the comments section of HotAir, that my strong guess was that they were from Chechnya. I also had a back-up guess that they could be Syrian, Turkish, Greek, Armenian, Albanian, but definitely that region of the world.
The suspects were identified to The Associated Press as coming from the Russian region near Chechnya, which has been plagued by an Islamic insurgency stemming from separatist wars.
Muslim terrorist attack in Boston, Massachusetts USA. 3 killed, 172 injured, many severely. The liberal-left, and even some in the anti-war/soft on terrorism wing within the libertarian movement are going to seriously have some explaining to do. Don’t worry.
One of the brothers “lived in Turkey.” Was he trained there? A NATO ally now training Muslim rebels to kill Americans?
Pat Dollard posted this quote from Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis
“We believe this is a terrorist, we believe this is a man that’s come here to kill people,”

Gateway Pundit has this tweet from a resident this morning. In another post, Gateway Pundit notes that after a photo was taken with Tamerlan Tsarnaev (the dead brother) and a girl, he said: “Tamerlan says he doesn’t usually take his shirt off so girls don’t get bad ideas: ‘I’m very religious’.” (Source)
Via Free Republic: The Boston bombers from Chechnya are most likely Sunni Muslims
Islam is the predominant religion in Chechnya. Chechens are overwhelmingly adherents to Sunni Islam, the country having converted to Islam between the 16th and the 19th centuries. Due to historical importance, many Chechens are Sufis, of either the Qadiri or Naqshbandi orders. Most of the population follows either the Shafi’i, Hanafi, or Maliki schools of jurisprudence, fiqh. The Shafi’i school of jurisprudence has a long tradition among the Chechens, and thus it remains the most practiced.
(Gateway posted this tid-bit) Dead Boston Bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev created a YouTube playlist devoted to Islamic terrorism.
HotAir posts this about a crazy “al-Qaeda prophecy” the older brother was into, he is the one who said “I don’t have a single American friend, I don’t understand them.”
Update: Mother Jones’ Adam Serwer reports that Tamerlan was a fan of the “al-Qaeda prophecy”:
Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the 26 year-old brother of the second Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, had a YouTube page where he posted religious videos, including a video of Feiz Mohammad, afundamentalist Australian Muslim preacher who rails against the evils of Harry Potter. Among those videos is one dedicated to the prophecy of the Black Banners of Khurasan which is embraced by Islamic extremists—particularly Al Qaeda. The videos posted on what appears to be Tsarnaev’s YouTube page may shed light on the motivations for the attack on the Boston Marathon. The prophecy states that an invincible army will come from the region of “Khurasan,” a large portion of territory in central Asia.
“This is a major hadith (reported saying of the prophet Muhammad) that jihadis use, it is essentially an end-time prophecy,” says Aaron Zelin, a fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy “This is definitely important in Al Qaeda’s ideology.” In The Black Banners, former FBI agent Ali Soufan’s book about his pursuit of Al Qaeda that is named after this prophecy, Soufan describes the prophecy this way:
Khurasan is a term for a historical region spanning northeastern and eastern Iran and parts of Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Afghanistan, and northwestern Pakistan. Because of the hadith, jihadists believe that this is the region from which they will inflict a major defeat against their enemies—in the Islamic version of Armageddon…

You will submit to the media’s bias, take your pill, and shut-the-hell-up! … well, not me.
So it is apparent the bomb at Boston is leaning towards
Arabs (Muslims) working out their “non-violent” jihad… new info is seemingly showing white guys… so I bet when found they have leftist leanings (like Occupy or something similar) — I may be wrong, but it is typically either/or.

The ricen letter dude is confirmed to be a Democrat activist, and he can added to the list of Democratic terrorists of the 21st Century (also Gunmen bio’s [old blog] here, [new blog] here). As one travels to the left of the spectrum, “Leftism” proper replaces religious tenants with its own.
….Years ago, I debated one of the most prominent rabbis in the Conservative movement of Judaism on the issue of whether morality must be God-based. The Ivy League Ph.D., yarmulke-wearing rabbi argued that God was not morally necessary. If you want to understand why so many Jews vote left while nearly all the Western world’s opposition to — and frequently hatred of — Israel emanates from the left, one explanation is this: For most American Jews, their religion is leftism, while Judaism is their ethnicity and culture. The Reform, and increasingly the Conservative, movements have, to a large extent, become political movements that use Hebrew and Jewish rituals to equate Judaism with progressive politics.
Within mainstream Protestantism and Catholicism, the same dominance of leftist values exists. The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops largely holds the same social and economic views as the Democratic Party and The New York Times editorial page. It differs with the left with regard to same-sex marriage, abortion and religious freedom issues such as those pertaining to Catholic hospitals and government-funded contraception. As for mainstream Protestant denominations, they, too, are largely indistinguishable from leftism. Proof? Ask a liberal Protestant minister to name one important area in which he and leftism differ. Ask a liberal Reform or Conservative rabbi the same question. Their silence will be telling.
The truth is that the left has been far more successful in converting in converting Jews and Christians to Leftism than Christianity and Judaism have been in influencing leftists to convert to Christianity or Judaism….
LifeSite has this;
Former abortion clinic worker James Johnson testified today during the murder trial of Kermit Gosnell and provided jurors with a nauseating account of the horrific conditions at the abortion facility.
Johnson worked as a janitor, maintenance man and plumber of sorts and he was the common-law husband of 51-year-old Elizabeth Hampton, who is herself Gosnell’s wife’s sister. He told jurors some of the morbid details that appear in the grand jury report — including how he threatened to quit working at the abortion clinic because he refused to pull any more flesh from aborted babies out of the plumbing.
His job was to collect abortion remains and take them to basement — but he eventually refused to participate and bags began piling up.
He told the jury toilets backed up one-two times a week and said he opened the outside clean out pipe and fetal parts such as babies’ arms came spilling out.
Johnson said he scooped up body parts with shovel and put them in a bag that was taken to rat infested basement. Johnson said a cat kept at the Gosnell clinic was there to deal with rat infestations that kept happening. He said the at pooped in plants all over clinic.
The Gosnell clinic had a practice of making women dispose of the aborted babies body in the toilet and, as the grand jury report indicated: “[Patients] did not know inducing the labor and severing the spinal cords of live babies was going to happen.”
The report stated that “All afternoon and evening, as patients woke and complained of pain, workers would continue to medicate them with injections of sedatives. Between doses, the staff would leave the patients largely unattended. This would go on until the doctor arrived, some six or more hours after the patient did, or until the woman delivered.” The abortion could take as long as three days, one staffer admitted in it.
“If … a baby was about to come out, I would take the woman to the bathroom, they would sit on the toilet and basically the baby would fall out and it would be in the toilet,” testified Latosha Lewis, who worked for Gosnell for over eight years. “I would be rubbing her back and trying to calm her down for two, three, four hours until Dr. Gosnell comes. She would not move.”
According to the report, “[Johnson] described how he had to lift the toilet so that someone else—he said it was too disgusting for him—could get the fetuses out of the pipes.”
