    A student at a private Muslim school in Queens, New York called the Boston Marathon bombers Jews, a former teacher says. The New York Post reported Sunday that Nina Kossman, a former English teacher at the Razi School in Woodside, asked her students at one time: “Do you know what happens when people start hating each other for their differences?” One student replied, “My parents said they [the Boston bombers] were bad people. They were Jews.” […] “I was shocked,” said Koss­man. Kossman was removed from the private religious school last month after she told students the Adam and Eve...

    A looming First Amendment showdown drew closer Tuesday as a federal judge ordered conservative media host Glenn Beck to identify at least two confidential sources in connection with a defamation lawsuit stemming from Beck's reporting on the Boston Marathon bombing. The suit was filed by Saudi Arabian student Abdulrahman Alharbi, who was injured at the scene of the deadly bombings. Beck continued to link the Saudi national to the attacks even after U.S. officials said publicly he'd been cleared. U.S. District Court Judge Patti Saris ruled that Beck must disclose the names of two Department of Homeland Security employees who...
  • Al-Qaida leader: 'grave consequences' for US if Boston bomber executed

    The Guardian ^ | 7/1/2016
    Al-Qaida leader Ayman al-Zawahiri has warned the US of the “gravest consequences” if Boston marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev or any other Muslim prisoner is executed. Tsarnaev, named in Zawahiri’s online video message, was sentenced to death by lethal injection last year for the 2013 bomb attack that killed three people and injured more than 260 others. Tsarnaev committed the bombing with his older brother, Tamerlan, who was killed in a shootout with police in the manhunt that followed it. “If the US administration kills our brother the hero Dzhokhar Tsarnaev or any Muslim,” Zawahri said in an online video, “[it]...

    Mateen was a 'known quantity' to federal law enforcement before he killed 53 people in the worst mass shooting in U.S. history. Omar Mateen of Port Saint Lucie, Florida, came to the attention of federal authorities twice prior to being identified as the gunman in the Orlando nightclub mass shooting, a senior law enforcement source told The Daily Beast. [Snip] The senior law enforcement source reports that Mateen became a person of interest in 2013 and again in 2014. The Federal Bureau of Investigation at one point opened an investigation on Mateen but subsequently closed the case when it produced...

    Conservatives who breathed a sigh of relief with Vice President Joe Biden’s removing himself from the 2016 race should stop, look, and listen. There are other potential presidential candidates on the horizon. Former Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick is one. Although he has said no to a run, and although the time is getting late, Deval Patrick is a longtime ally of President Obama. His only criticism of the President is that he does not tout his great successes enough. Recently, Gov. Patrick put his name on the cover of Winning Marriage. It’s a book about the thus far successful...

    Gov. Deval Patrick is reportedly on the short list of potential running mates for Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton and Bay State political analysts say he could be the perfect pick because he could help win over the party’s progressive wing and shine in head-to-head debates. “I think he’d be a terrific choice,” said Philip Johnston, former chairman of the Massachusetts Democratic Party. “He is viewed as a strong progressive, and I think he has great credibility with both Clinton and (Bernie) Sanders supporters.” The New York Times reported yesterday that Clinton’s advisers are compiling a list of 15 to 25...
  • Shattuck: Deval Patrick never lives up to his 'words' Hill would be wise to check his transcripts

    The Boston Herald ^ | 04/24/16 | Tom Shattuck
    “Just words,” the refrain famously went in Deval Patrick’s run for governor 
in 2006. With reports that the Hillary Clinton campaign is considering the former 
Massachusetts governor as her running mate, it would be wise for the former secretary of state to revisit some of Deval’s notable quotes before making 
her decision. “Just words,” indeed. We can start in her “home state.” We all know about Deval’s assessment of the 9/11 terror attacks as “a failure of human understanding” and “the failure of human beings … to learn to love each other,” but years later he sniveled at New Yorkers...

    Glenn Beck has been one of Ted Cruz’s most high profile surrogates—but Beck’s support could become a little less desirable when he heads to court this summer for allegedly defaming a victim of the Boston Marathon bombing…… One of Ted Cruz’s most prominent supporters could be headed to court soon to defend his Islamophobic falsehoods about a victim of terrorism. “…But come this summer, it’s Beck who could face judgement. The radio talker currently faces a defamation lawsuit—because he doubled and tripled down on charges that a victim of a terrorist attack was actually the real terrorist. “… previously unnoticed...

    John Hickenlooper has never been accused of being the brightest bulb in the Lamps'R'Us store, but he made space in his mouth to fit both feet in when he said that no refugees had ever committed an act of terrorism on American soil. Hick says that no refugee has ever committed an act of terror on American soil. Does he not know that Boston is on American soil, and not only where the Tzarnaevs refugees from Kyrgyzstan, but the federal government was supporting their terrorism by providing them with welfare benefits.

    Family friend tells Vocativ that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s mother sent a distraught message after her son was given the death penalty. With her terrorist son sentenced to death, the mother of Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev sent raging messages to his supporters saying the United States will burn “in the flames of an eternal and terrifying fire,” her close friend told Vocativ. “They think that they are killing us and they celebrate this, but we are the ones who will rejoice when Allah grants us the chance to behold them in the flames of an eternal and terrifying fire, an otherworldly...

    Head-in-the-sand approach to Islamic terror There are several “laws” such as Godwin’s Law. Godwin’s Law is named after American lawyer and author, Mike Godwin, and postulates the longer a discussion on the Internet goes, the chance that one of the participants will compare someone or something to Hitler or the Nazis increases. A new and similar law is needed; perhaps it could be called “Ortiz’ Law.” Ortiz’ Law would hypothesize that the longer a person discusses Islamic terrorism, the more certain it will be that that person will say the act or acts in question have absolutely nothing to do...

    A jury's ruling today to sentence marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to death is "justice" and a warning Boston "will not tolerate terrorism," survivors and police said after the verdict. "This is nothing to celebrate. This is justice," said survivor Michael Ward. "He wanted to go to hell and he's going to get there early." The verdict against Tsarnaev, who'll turn 22 in July, was announced by U.S. District Court Judge George A. O'Toole Jr.'s courtroom clerk Paul Lyness. Tsarnaev showed no emotion as the verdict was read. Marathon bombing survivor Adrianne Haslet-Davis, who lost a third of her left leg...

    Justice has been done in Boston, but it's not finished. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has been found guilty in the Boston Marathon terrorism bombing. The verdict Wednesday was no surprise. Everyone in the country already knew that Tsarnaev and his dead brother planted two bombs in the crowd at the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013. Even Tsarnaev's defense team acknowledged that he took part in the act of domestic terrorism that killed three and wounded 260 others. After 16 days and 95 witnesses, it took the jury just 11 hours to render their verdict on the 30 federal counts against the...

    Boston Marathon bombers' mother stood defiant in the wake of Dhozkhar Tsarnaev's guilty verdict Wednesday, declaring in a message to a supporter that her convicted mass-murderer son is 'the best of the best.' The 21-year-old Tsarnaev was found guilty by a Boston jury this morning of all 30 counts - 17 of them carrying the death penalty - in connection to the deadly 2013 attacks. But the bomber's mother, Zubeidat Tsarnaev, continued asserting Dzhokhar and his late brother Tamerlan's innocence.

    The Islamic Society of Boston (ISB), whose Cambridge mosque the Boston Marathon bombers attended during their increasing radicalization, was in large part established with money from Saudi Arabian elites. Indeed, former Saudi Minister of Petroleum Zaki Yamani gave the keynote speech at the celebration marking the transfer of public City of Boston land to the ISB for less than 10% of its market value to build the ISBCC mega-mosque. Now, for the first time, Americans for Peace and Tolerance is making publicly available the names of wealthy Saudi and Gulf sources who together paid for over $8.6 million of the...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The focus of the Boston Marathon bombing trial figures to be as much on what punishment Dzhokhar Tsarnaev could face as on his responsibility for the attack. With testimony expected to start later this month, the Justice Department has given no indication it is open to any proposal from the defense to spare Tsarnaev's life, pushing instead toward a trial that could result in a death sentence for the 21-year-old defendant. In a deadly terror case that killed three people, including a child, and jolted the city, there may be little incentive for prosecutors who believe they...
