funny how the very first 2 explosions further up the street right in front of the Forum restaurant not even or barely mentioned and this particular news release never aired again. I believe the second site was staged to cover up the first 2 explosions most likely caused by just a gas leak originating from the Forum restaurant where 2 women had been reported killed. there is definitely plenty of evidence proving that some of the so called “victims” of the second site further down from the Forum Restaurant were very possibly just hired actors brought in to fool the public and gradually distract everyone from the first explosion site right at or just a little beyond the finish line. For ex: Jeff Baumann. I believe the 2nd blast site was staged to get out of facing possible lawsuits and were never intended to cause any serious injuries other than scare everyone and get them to believe some unknown bomber was planting bombs. however little Martin ended up killed inadvertently and this is when the Sh*T REALLY HIT THE FAN AND PATSIES SUDDENLY BECAME NEEDED TO TAKE THE FALL QUICK !!!

America, Wake the hell up!

Posted at 9:08 PM on April 16, 2013  

This is a 9/11 Sandy Hook attack by the U.S Federal government to distract the American people from their agenda’s. They will use fear to control you to give up your rights or freedoms. They will use the word ‘terrorism’ to scare you. Look how easy they have brainwashed you. Wake the hell up! They are people in Iraq, Syria, Libya, Afghanistan and other middle eastern countries, being shot, killed, raped, abused, and bombed cause of fighting ‘terrorism’. Terrorism doesn’t exist, and the only terrorist or terrorism that does exist is the pigs in the federal government, big banks, and big corporations. Boston bombing is a distraction and a false flag to increase security, start a World War, or to invade a country. They are alot of people in the middle east in a way worse situation than Boston. People, Wake the hell up. Wake up!

Absolutely agree with you. Seems like the attack was carefully planned by the government to frighten the public just to 1) stop the fuss around the gun laws, 2) to discredit Russia’s attempts to defend Syria from the international intervention. It’s all about the money, all about the oil and guns.

Dont worry our fanatic’s in govt. will blame it on law abiding gun owner’s-NRA-Veterans-Hunters you know the big threat groups to America, according to Queen Napolitano of Homeland Security. Bloomberg in N.Y. probably has a woody he’s so excited, now he will have a new mission to dictate his wisdom on.

Not being of the USA, and not having any affiliation with any religion (I trust on my inner sense of right and wrong – if there is a supreme being, I’m sure he’ll keep me straight), I can only say that this doesn’t smell like a terrorist attack, and even if they find the perpetrator to have ties to a larger terrorist organisation, I don’t find it likely that this was done one their behalf.

1: No one claimed the attack yet
2: 2/5 bombs went off, 3/5 found and dismantled
3: What on earth is offensive about a marathon?

This was probably some misled soul who got lost his job and got evicted and blames the world for his problems. Unfortunately, he lived in or around Boston…

I wish all the victims and everyone involved all the power to deal with this horrible event.

Terah,

I find your argument incoherent. You don’t sense the attributes of a terror attack here? Surely even though you are outside the US you have access to the news from Iraq, Britain, Pakistan, Israel, India and many other places where bombings of just this style (multiple devices, staged detonation to cause maximum injury) were carried out by Islamic jihadists. And why on Earth would a perp with “ties to a larger terrorist organization” NOT carry out such an attack on their behalf? Acting as a lone wolf? What purpose, then, of being part of a larger organization? Incoherent.

Terror organizations attacking the West, especially the US, don’t typically take credit immediately for their evil, unlike in many other parts of the world. I can only conjecture about why this is so, perhaps fearing the wrath of the US military which has shown itself capable of killing you wherever you are on the planet. Jihadists, though they are clever and diabolical, have nevertheless not shown themselves to be the most competent bomb technicians on the planet (thank God!). Witness Richard Reid, Umar Abdulmutallab and Faisal Shahzad. It is therefore not a surprise that some of the devices failed. And an endless series of statements by the jihadists themselves establish that it is not specifics of our way of life that they’re attacking, spurred by hatred of marathons or financial centers. They hate us because we are infidels. They are offended that we disbelieve in their divinely-mandated cult of death-worship, pedophilia, urine-drinking and misogyny.

An out-of-work Bostonian? Surely you jest.

Love,
Mike

I want to slap you so bad right now that you forget your name. As a Muslim, I am just enraged. Jihadist? Do you even use that brain of yours? What they speak is not what Islam is. What they speak is all a lie. This is to all who instantly blamed the Muslims. Put a sock in your whirlwind of lies.

American Muslims Mourn For Boston Marathon Victims

Ahmadiyya Muslim Community condemns bombings and calls for unity against extremism

Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA expresses its most heartfelt condolences to the victims and families affected by the bombings in Boston today and prays that God Almighty gives them patience, comfort and strength during this time of immense struggle. While details of the attack continue to emerge, Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA condemns this horrific act in the strongest possible manner. The Community prays that those responsible for today’s bombing are swiftly brought to justice and that peace is once again restored.

“As Muslims, our duty is both to God and to humanity,” said Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA National Vice President Dr. Nasim Rehmatullah, “and we want our fellow Americans to be confident that we stand united with them, especially in this difficult time.” Moreover, the Community’s Boston chapter is available to provide assistance to those affected by this tragedy.

Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA also commends the first responders, police officers, and firefighters for acting so quickly and courageously. Their heroism should not be forgotten.

About Ahmadiyya Muslim Community:
Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is a dynamic, reformist and fast-growing international revival movement within Islam. Founded in 1889, the Community spans more than 200 countries with membership exceeding tens of millions. Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA, established in 1920, is among the first American-Muslim organizations.

Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is the only Islamic organization to believe that the long- awaited messiah has come in the person of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (1835-1908) of Qadian, India. Ahmad claimed to be the metaphorical second coming of Jesus of Nazareth and the divine guide, whose advent was foretold by the Prophet of Islam, Muhammad. The Community believes that God sent Ahmad, like Jesus, to end religious wars, condemn bloodshed and reinstitute morality, justice and peace. Ahmad’s advent has brought about an unprecedented era of Islamic revival and moderation. He divested Muslims of fanatical beliefs and practices by vigorously championing Islam’s true and essential teachings.

Yes, the peaceful and tolerant Muslims are forever lovingly and tolerantly threatening those who point out that those who commit violent jihad are doing so in the name of Islam, as Dzhokhar Tsarnaev revealed today about the motive of his brother Tamerlan who reportedly “wanted to defend Islam.” Similar motives are routinely cited by jihadists. If their description of Islam is inaccurate, how did they all come to (mis)understand it the same way?

@Cameris
Thank you for bringing the pronouncement of the Ahmadiyya community to our attention. It is most welcome to hear members of the Islamic faith weigh in against anyone, Muslim or not, who commits such crimes. At the time they issued this release, it was not yet widely known that it was their co-religionists who were responsible, but I trust the emergence of that fact has not altered their respect for America or contempt for the perpetrators.

The Ahmadiyya, it should be noted, are considered heretics by the overwhelming majority of Muslims. Both Sunni and Shia denounce, and in other parts of the world, persecute, the Ahmadiyya. In no sense do they speak for worldwide Islam.

You forgot in your parting shot to accuse me of being an “Islamophobe.” That would have nicely rounded out the obligatory ad hominems to be directed at anyone who tells the truth about the nature and extent of the jihad. And please, for the record, quote specific statements I’ve made which are “bigoted” or “racist”.

By the way, what race is Islam again?

Regards,
Mike

feel sorry for the people involved in the Boston bomb, but,
today 50 Iraqis were killed and 300 injured in a bomb attack, with barely a mention.

Corn,
Yes, it is distressing that that Americans generally are unaware of and consequently unsympathetic to the plight of those in Iraq who are the victims of jihad attacks. We might take more affirmative steps to counter the jihad threat worldwide if we took the bitter fruit of “liberating” Iraq to heart rather than waiting for the jihadists to strike here. I think, though, that that would require a level of introspection of which America is no longer capable until we really get hit with a humdinger of an atack that rivals Pearl Harbor. Even 9/11 wasn’t enough to unseat the folly of the irrecognition of the irrefragable threat to Western civilization posed by Islam. Actually, being a little more candid than I probably should, I fear that the depth of PC that has built up in our legal system and culture is insusceptible of correction in this area. There are too many people who “know so much that isn’t so,” as Reagan trenchantly put it, to back out of this wilderness. We took a wrong fork in the road a good ways back, and that road is now washed out. There is no turning back, but the way forward is farther along the wrong road, which will eventuate in disaster. In my view, it’s just a matter of what form the disaster will take, not whether it will occur.
Mike

Lindsey Lohan and Lil Wayne Sending prayers to everyone who was/is at the #bostonmarathon? …are they serious? God, which is composed by Jehova the father, Jesus the son, and the holy spirit,do not and will not approve these people’s lifestyles at all.. and yet these people have the audacity of sending prayers; from whom? I would be better off without their prayers.. humanity would be better off without their prayers because if it doesnt come from God.. then their prayers mean nothing.. and it mostly becomes a curse than a blessing.

Its funny, I find it really amusing how many started pointing out fingers towards Muslims, yea, well, we’re not humans anymore, anything that goes wrong with this world is our problem, we were the ones who killed millions of innocents WW1, WW2, in the Vietnam and Iraq.
Its ironic, but I stand with victims of the Boston marathon, despite the fact that many of you chose to leave out my people in Syria, am not trying to compare situations, both are brutal in their own places, but if you take a moment to look, my people are living on 2 hours of electricity every 4 days, shortage of food, little or no water and worse, we lose our loved ones everyday, despite all this, some of you managed to pull up enough courage to sit back on that lovely cozy couch and point fingers, “Muslims”.

You forgot to mention the thousands if “infidels” who are maimed, tortured and murdered daily in the name of Islam. I WISH this nightmare were made up, but it isn’t. There are too many world news sources telling the truth. You cannot sweep this scourge of humanity under the rug. Google “Islam: The Religion of Peace” and “Jihad Watch” – just two examples.

Anouar,
Could you substantiate your claim that Muslims have been accused of being responsible for the deaths of the innocent victims of the two World Wars, Vietnam and Iraq? Please cite some respected individual or organization in the West that makes (or has ever made) such a claim.
Thanks,
Mike
