    Due to the background of Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the half-Chechen half-Avar brothers who bombed the Boston marathon, many Americans are suddenly very interested in the tortured history of the North Caucasus. I can’t credibly claim to be an expert on the multitudinous ethnic and linguistic groups that populate the area, so if you’re looking for in-depth analysis of Chechen politics, a data-driven account of the economics of Dagestan, or a blow-by-blow account of the past 20 years of the region’s history you should look somewhere else. If you’re still wondering “where in God’s name is Chechnya?” or “why are...

    RAMALLAH, West Bank (AP) — U.S. President Barack Obama is meeting Palestinian officials on the second day of his Mideast tour to emphasize the importance of reaching an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal, a message underscored Thursday when Palestinian militants in Gaza launched rockets into southern Israel. After a visit to Israel's national museum — where he inspected the Dead Sea Scrolls, which highlight the Jewish people's ancient connection to the land that is now Israel — Obama headed to the West Bank to tell the Palestinians that the creation of a Palestinian state remains a priority for his administration.

    Evyatar Borovsky, 31, was laid to rest Tuesday evening. He was murdered by a Palestinian Authority resident terrorist, who stabbed him to death while he waited for a ride at the Tapuach Junction. Several hundred people attended the funeral. His widow, Tzofia, was at the funeral with the couple’s five children. She called to the media, “Look, five orphans.” Evyatar’s father Baruch eulogized him. “I can’t believe that I’m here,” he said. “Surely tonight you’ll get up, you’ll laugh and say, ‘I fooled you.’”

    Two days after Plotnikov's death, Tsarnaev flew to Moscow on July 16 last year, and the next day to the US. "It seems that Tamerlan Tsarnaev came to Dagestan with the aim of joining the insurgents," said the source. "It didn't work out. First you need to contact an intermediary, then there is a period of 'quarantine' – before they take someone, the insurgents check him out over several months. "After Nidal and Plotnikov were destroyed and he lost his contacts, Tsarnaev got frightened and fled."

    Those of us who pay attention, who are not doing the zombie shuffle through life, take polling results with more than a grain of salt. But, I found the results of a couple of post-Boston bombing, small-sample polls conducted by Fox News and the Washington Post to be interesting for what they say about our perception of the federal government. On Sunday, WorldNetDaily’s Drew Zahn wrote a report in which he stated: According to a pair of recent polls, for the first time since the 9/11 terrorist hijackings, Americans are more fearful their government will abuse constitutional liberties than fail...

    A statement from captured bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and corroborated by the terrorists’ carjack victim that New York City’s Times Square was the next target was met with surprising calm by Mayor Michael Bloomberg. “As horrific as the Boston Marathon bombing was or that a similar attack in Times Square might’ve been, the carnage entailed cannot match that wreaked on our citizens by sugar-laden soft drinks,” Bloomberg said. “The Boston bomb claimed the lives of three innocent victims and maimed dozens more. Sugary soft drinks kill and incapacitate far more on an annual basis.” Bloomberg insisted that “we should not be...

    As we have amply demonstrated here, Obama never misses a chance to remind everyone that it was on his watch that Bin Laden was killed. The left repeatedly made the claim that George Bush didn't care about getting Bin Laden, taking words entirely out of context. Here is what Bush did have to say: Q Mr. President, in your speeches now you rarely talk or mention Osama bin Laden. Why is that? Also, can you tell the American people if you have any more information, if you know if he is dead or alive? Final part -- deep in your...

    The Russians warned the Obama regime of their concerns that the Tsarneav's could be religious extremists, but this regime wasn't interested because there is no longer such a thing as "Islamic extremism." There is no longer such a thing as "jihad." Had they only been white right wing militias. Obama was ready for them. The Department of Homeland Security is warning law enforcement officials about a rise in “rightwing extremist activity,” saying the economic recession, the election of America's first black president and the return of a few disgruntled war veterans could swell the ranks of white-power militias. Yeah, those...

    Terrorists must strike without warning and deliver maximum effectiveness in a short period of time to be effective. The Boston Terrorists were fairly successful, but thankfully, most of them are stupid and don't realize how to create far deadlier explosive devices with more readily available chemicals. However, if we note how the welfare coddled bastards from Chechnya were far less effective than say a former military man with basic explosive skills and a head for tactics could have been, we must also note the Keystone Cops appearance of Obama's FBI, they received multiple warnings from Russia, some from as recently...

    Last week in the U.S., Europe, and the Caucasus, people are asking how the terrorists got to Europe and then into the United States. Why didn't they have problems when moving into these countries, while ordinary citizens encounter enormous problems trying to enter these countries even on tourist visas. Just a week before the infamous acts of terrorism in Boston, I began to study the way in which a hypothetical terrorist could conceivably enter legally into the United States. I am not arguing that this happened in the case of Tsarnaev, but it is a fact that this route is...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Russian authorities secretly recorded a telephone conversation in 2011 in which one of the Boston bombing suspects vaguely discussed jihad with his mother, officials said Saturday, days after the U.S. government finally received details about the call. In another conversation, the mother of now-dead bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev was recorded talking to someone in southern Russia who is under FBI investigation in an unrelated case, officials said.

  • Was Suspected Boston Bomber Tipped Off By Wife?

    According to The Weekly Standard, authorities are still investigating how much Tamerlan Tsarnaev's wife knew about the Boston bombings. The report states that law enforcement officials now believe 24-year-old Katherine Russell Tsarnaeva called Tamerlan to let him know the FBI was looking for him after she saw his photos on the news. Though officials believe Tsarnaev was already aware, he and his younger brother went on the run a short time later, culminating in his death and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's arrest. Investigators were told of the alleged phone call by Dzhokhar in his interrogation before he was read his Miranda rights.

    The more we learn about the Brothers Tarnaev the more frightening the whole thing becomes. Our lives are dependent on incompetent fools. To wit: Tamerlan Tsarnaev was put on two terror watch lists in 2011 U.S. authorities put alleged Boston bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev on two separate watch lists in 2011 after Russian security agencies twice reached out to their American counterparts, raising new questions about missed opportunities to prevent the attack. Russian officials contacted the Federal Bureau of Investigation in March 2011, then reached out to the Central Intelligence Agency in September of that year, citing concerns Mr. Tsarnaev might...

    On the same day that federal investigators pleaded with the public for photos and videos that would help them identify the Boston Marathon bombers, the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI released a memo stating the “discrete use of cameras or video recorders” could be interpreted as a sign that a terrorist act is being planned.

    Dhaka (Agenzia Fides) – There is tension in Bangladesh between Islamist movements and the government. The group Hefazat-e-Islam (HeI) - which at the beginning of April had promoted a major demonstration - has launched an ultimatum to the government, intimating to approve the so-called "Document with 13 requests" - a kind of new blasphemy law - by 30 April. If this does not happen on May 5, the group will hold a new demonstration in the capital which has been called "a siege to Dhaka." The bill of 13 requests, offers, among other things, the death penalty for anyone found...
