Besides the ‘drug addicts’ who carried out the Jihadist operation at the Boston marathon, I am more interested in the ‘drug pusher’ who inspired Tamelan Tsarnev, one of the two Jihadists behind the Boston bombings.
If you’re interested in figures who may have inspired him, check out his YouTube channel.
A favorite seems to be Shaykh Feiz Mohammed (born 1970/1971), an Australian Muslim preacher of Lebanese descent and formerly the head of the Global Islamic Youth Centre in Liverpool, a suburb of Sydney. He was featured on a British television documentary called Undercover Mosque. He is noted in media sources for his fundamentalist beliefs, and has been referred to as a Wahhabi.
Prime Minister Tony Blair recently described tolerance as ‘what makes Britain Britain’ but in this extensive investigation Dispatches reveals how a message of hatred and segregation is being spread throughout the UK and examines how it is influenced by the religious establishment of Saudi Arabia.
Consider this tanslated excerpt from an Arabic BBC article:
Feiz called on all Muslim youth to “give their souls as a sacrifice for Islam” and “to become soldiers for Allah and defend Islam”. Sheikh Feiz said “plant in their soft and fragile heart the love of Jihad and martyrdom”. Feiz teachings are spread to Muslim youth throughout Australia, Great Britain and the United States.
Feiz is a radicalizing agent who speaks fluent English as a first language and has equally grim potential like Anwar Awlaki to incite terrorism in the United States. He now resides in Malaysia and has been labeled Australia’s “most dangerous sheikh” due to the number of connections he has to known and suspected terrorists.
Feiz’s lectures frame the United States as the enemy of all Muslims, including those living in the United States and Americans living in other Western countries.
And like the typical argument we always seem to hear, he stated:
“You can never judge the majority [Muslims] by the action of a minority”.
This brings us back to the bomber. Consider that his father is not denouncing him; he is praising him as an ‘angel’.
Via the AP:
Anzor Tsarnaev spoke with The Associated Press by telephone from the Russian city of Makhachkala on Friday after police said one of his sons, 26-year-old Tamerlan, had been killed in a shootout and the other, Dzhokhar, was being intensely pursued.
“My son is a true angel,” the elder Tsarnaev said. “Dzhokhar is a second-year medical student in the U.S. He is such an intelligent boy. We expected him to come on holidays here.”
Perhaps there is no better anecdotal evidence that demonstrates the difference between family members of murderers in the West with family members of Islamic terrorists.
