Last week, Walid wrote about the ‘clan’ mentality that exists in the Middle East and that it is completely different from familial connections in the west. In the U.S., for example, when a serial killer is apprehended, it’s quite common for every member of the family to disown the criminal.
The Middle East is a different story. The likeminded hatred for infidels and Jews is endemic within families. In the case of the Tsarnaev family, the mother of the jihadists – Zubeidat Tsarnaev – is exhibiting extremely bizarre behavior. Her logic is apparently that because her eldest son is dead, she doesn’t care if her youngest son is killed.
After expressing indifference about whether her son lives or dies, Zubeidat expresses the same indifference about her own life before saying:
“And I will say Allahu Akbar!”
Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the culture of martyrdom.
