Virginia officials: Tamerlan burial a grave injustice
The Boston Herald ^ | May 11, 2013 | Matt Stout

Posted on 05/11/2013 1:21:26 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

(VIDEO-AT-LINK)

Flabbergasted Virginia officials have asked authorities there to look into whether the secret burial of accused marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev in a rural Muslim cemetery broke any laws — but one expert says they likely have no ground to stand on.

Tsarnaev’s burial at the Al-Barzakh Cemetery in Doswell, Va., sent shock waves yesterday through Caroline County, where local officials — unaware of the hush-hush funeral until reporters started flooding their voicemails — say they don’t want the stain of his remains on their quiet community.

The brouhaha prompted the state attorney general’s office to step in and review the burial, according to Floyd Thomas, chairman of the county board of supervisors.

“Of all the localities,” Thomas said, “this is probably one of the last ones we would have thought of.”

But with the death certificate and burial permit already on file and the body in a private cemetery, there was no obligation to even inform local officials, according to an expert in burial law....

I believe the Uncle paid for the burial but the plot was donated. So what is the problem...it is a private cemetery. Doubt the uncle had the money to fly the body back to Chechnya.

I wonder if its possible for pilots to release their sewage tanks over this cemetery.

Frankly, I think enough ink has been spilled about this terrorist. How about we all just IGNORE him, from now on? If you don't like where he's buried, don't go there.

For goodness sake, NO conservative should try to desecrate the grave. We don't like it when the Westboro Baptist idiots try to disrupt Christian services or gravesites. Can't we just have the common decency to act like adults and, dare I say it, CHRISTIANS?

Usually they would be buried on the prison grounds or put into a reserved section of some cemetery (potters field).

Bill the family. There is no reason for them not to have handled this. Now the costs of guarding his grave are borne by others.

Exhume him & give him to the family. It’s their problem.

Why did the flabbergasted Virginian officials allow a Muslim cemetery to exist in the first place?

Probably for the same reason your state's officials allow them in New York. A quick check on Google Maps finds your state has no less than 10.

He’s dead. He’s buried. I don’t see a problem. It’s not like they found him a place in Arlington. Or ripped someone out their resting place to make room for him.

You don't see a problem? Let me give you a few:

Katherine Russell is lawyering up!......Bombers wife hires Terroism attorney.....wonder who is funding this for her?

“Dratel once represented a Pakistani man living in New York who pleaded guilty to supporting Hezbollah by broadcasting the Islamic militant group’s TV channel to U.S. viewers. He also defended an Australian charged with being a soldier for the Taliban.”

She must know a whole lot more than the press is letting on.

Just reminded of this famous statement in a recent congressional hearing:

‘The Taliban is in the building’

The first thing I ever remember about the people that attacked our country on 911 was OBL’s first statement to our country. He was obsessed with ‘weak horse’ analogies... I was scared by his evil...brave men were inspired to fight..scary times.

But now..a decade later...i am chilled by his prediction..

OMG...the strong horse has become weakened by his enemies because he is afraid of being labeled a ‘Strong Horse’....can you imagine?

Yet we place bets on horses in the Kentucky Derby,the Belmont..many with Arabian ancestry and Saudi backing..we don’t even know who we are betting on anymore....let that sink in.

The Islamists know about ‘horse racing’.....figuratively and concretely...right now...Obama and his apologists are letting them run without opposition...to show them just how weak a horse we possess.

The joke is on the ‘infidels’.....

...”joke is on the ‘infidels’.....”

Oh sure..in their eyes...

...part of why they see us that way is, we do not have an understanding of what they mean when they express similar vocubulary we use, we think they mean the same thing when in fact, even basic vocabulary, their meaning is entirley different....but they let us think we’re on the same page.

If indeed they believe we are infidels...then that’s a death sentence in their eyes....not just a bad name.

No, but since it's the only unmarked grave in a small cemetery, it isn't hard to figure out which one it is.

If I lived and paid property taxes in Doswell, or if I were a local official in Doswell, I’d be damned sure there was no patrol car near the cemetery after this week. If it’s desecrated, it’s desecrated. Not as if that doesn’t happen all the time to cemeteries across the country, especially historic cemeteries.

Let the local mosque or cemetery itself pay to protect the gravesite if it’s important to them.

An important distinction you are making there. We don’t understand them because we are not allowed to even examine their religion in context to this war on terror.

It IS an important distinction, just as you stated Penelopesire, very important.

It isn't just a language difference....our meaning and that of the Islam is so very different...and they do not help the situation by letting us “believe” we are speaking with the same meaning.

They will agree that the world needs ‘Peace’....and use it often....but to them, and in their minds, ‘Peace is ONLY thru Islam’. So you see when they are using the term Peace it's quite another thing then how we see Peace. Yet they never reveal this in the course of conversation.
