Posted on 04/15/2013 7:26:59 PM PDT by Sir Napsalot
A renowned expert on world terrorism says the deadly blasts that rocked Boston have all the earmarks of a domestic attack not unlike Timothy McVeighs 1995 truck-bomb explosion in Oklahoma City.
Its interesting the timing of this event, Dr. Harvey Kushner told Newsmax TVs The Steve Malzberg Show.
Its Patriots Day, Tax Day. Its a holiday in Boston and were coming up on what was the Oklahoma City bombing April 19th, and also the Battle of Lexington, which started the American Revolution.
A lot of domestic terrorist organizations used to key in on that date, April 19. And Boston is the center of this patriot movement and patriot feeling.
Kushner, author of Holy War on the Home Front: The Secret Islamic Terror Network in the United States and The Encyclopedia of Terrorism said the marathons prominence appears to be a factor in it being targeted.
Whether its at the hand of a domestic terrorist, or an internationally sponsored group or a wannabe, this is not good for this country because it just shows the vulnerability of this nation.
This is not flying planes into buildings, but its certainly hitting America on an important day and it just shows our vulnerability.
He said he believed the explosions could be the work of a McVeigh type, if I could be so bold.
Kushner, Chairman of the Department of Criminal Justice at Long Island University, said other large U.S. cities could now be in jeopardy.

Its also Israeli Independence Day and also a time where we remember the Holocaust..but I guess thats not something these “experts” want to discuss
Not to be taken too seriously ... he’s only a rental from a no-name college.
What a freaking idiot.
These clowns are desperate for a pasty white bomber but it sounds like they’re going to have to wait some more.
This is impressive though. The left is pulling out all of the stops pushing this right-wing terrorist angle.
I’m not an “expert” but I see it as being more like a 60s Weather Undergroud-Like Attack.
It’s also close to the 65th anniversary of the founding of modern Israel. The Muzzies tend to have an itch about that.
Yep. Sh!theel Stalinists using the old Saul Alinsky playbook.
This is a crowd....not a building and I think this is a rather large group...maybe 9 perps.
Ok, the next person says “But I slept in a Holiday Inn Express” wins the prize.
Moron. Tim targeted a government building.
The Twin Towers were civilian targets.
It’s not the 19th...
Stretching your premise like that shows AGENDA.
Thanks to the boy emperor, we are all Israelis now.
The reality is that it's frequently the first really warm week of the year ~ and they can get out and do this stuff.
Mad bombers aren't necessarily anniversary driven, although professional mad bombers will try to hit a significant holiday or other celebratory time just to rub our noses in it.
With HSD wasting a lot of time looking over purchases of fertilizer and motor oil, the professional terrorists have to resort to more symbolic, but certainly still deadly, old fashioned black powder bombs.
In the Jewish calendar today is the 5th of Iyar, so it is exactly the 65th anniversary of the Israeli declaration of independence.
Actually, in Israel, everyone walks around with guns..when I was there..you walk freely around the country and see armed guards and soldiers with guns..you would never see that here, because remember, according to the left guns are evil evil evil
McVeigh wasn’t nearly as right wing as the left painted him. I’ve read some of his little manifestos and in most respects he would have fit in with Klan Pink quite nicely.
I expected even more of them coming out of the woodwork blaming the Tea Party or Conservatives. Just sling crap like they did in Arizona expecting that at least 40% to 50% of their voter base would believe it long after it was shown otherwise. I guarantee that a good percentage of the low brain function Progressive crowd to this day will state that the shooter was a Tea Party member.
A lot? Name two perfessor!
Fertilizer and other stuff was used as alternative, because old fashioned black powder was heavily monitored/regulated?
