Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Hezbollah Celebrate Boston Terror Attack
By Israel News Agency Staff
Jerusalem, Israel --- April 15, 2013 Shortly after terror bombs exploded and murdered over 12 people at the Boston Marathon, members of Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Hezbollah were reported to be dancing in the streets of Gaza, handing out candies to passerbys.
A number of Palestinians had danced in the street in celebration of the 9/11 attacks in 2001 on the World Trade Center and Washington resulting in the deaths of thousands of Americans.
The head of an Islamic terror organization in Jordan - the Muslim Salafi group says hes happy to see the horror in America after the bombing attacks in Boston.
American blood isnt more precious than Muslim blood, said Mohammad al-Chalabi, who was convicted in an al-Qaeda-linked plot to attack US and other Western diplomatic missions in Jordan in 2003.
Let the Americans feel the pain we endured by their armies occupying Iraq and Afghanistan and killing our people there, he said today.
A Mideast counterterrorism official based in Jordan said the blasts carry the hallmark of an organized terrorist group, like al-Qaeda.
The New York Post has reported that at least 12 people are dead and over 100 injured including up to 15 with amputated limbs after two bombs ripped through the finish line of the Boston Marathon.
Police and FBI were guarding a person of interest at a local hospital, according to a New York Post report confirmed by Fox News. The person, who sources said was 20 years old, had severe burns, but authorities had not determined whether the person was a victim or a perpetrator. Boston Police Commissioner Edward Davis said during a press conference that no suspect has yet been charged.
The Boston terror bombings took place just before 3 p.m. and reports of two other unexploded bombs were found near the scene reinforced that this was indeed a terrorist attack. Intelligence officials told The Associated Press two unexploded devices were being dismantled. Competitors and race organizers were crying as they fled the bloody chaos, while some witnesses reported seeing victims with lost limbs.
"Somebody's leg flew by my head," a spectator, who gave his name as John Ross, told the Boston Herald. I gave my belt to stop the blood.
The first two bombings occurred at 2:50 p.m. nearly five hours after the marathon began about 50 to 100 yards apart, according to Davis. A third explosion occurred near the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum in the Columbia Point section of Dorchester, several miles southeast of the marathon's finish line, at around 4:15 p.m. Police could not say if it was related to the earlier explosions.
The FBI, which was treating the bombing as a terrorist investigation, was analyzing video from several area surveillance cameras.
Over twenty-six people were transported to Brigham and Women's Hospital, including a 3-year-old, who was then taken to a children's hospital. A doctor at the hospital said at least two of the patients there are in critical condition and that some have burns and injuries that will likely require amputations.
Witnesses heard booms that sounded like two claps of thunder near the finish line inside the Fairmount Copley Plaza Hotel, according to multiple local reports. The terror attack unfolded as the city marked the 238th annual Patriot's Day, commemorating the anniversary of the Battles of Lexington and Concord at the beginning of the Revolutionary War.
President Obama said Monday that those responsible will "feel the full weight of justice." The President assured that the administration is mobilizing its "full resources" to help investigate and provide security.
The President addressed the US from the White House briefing room just hours after the bombing attacks in Boston. Obama has been in contact with Massachusetts officials regarding the fatal terror attack and has directed his administration to provide "whatever assistance is necessary."
A White House official said the president called Boston Mayor Tom Menino and Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick earlier Monday to "express his concern for those who were injured and to make clear that his administration is ready to provide needed support as they respond to the incident."
Obama was briefed by Homeland Security adviser Lisa Monaco and other members of his senior staff Monday afternoon, as well as by FBI Director Robert Mueller and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone impacted by this incident in Boston, especially the families and loved ones of those injured," said US Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano.
"Federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies continue to respond, and at the Presidents direction, the Department of Homeland Security is providing any support necessary in this ongoing investigation. We encourage the public to be vigilant, and to listen to direction from state and local officials.
Officals in Jerusalem expressed regret for the senseless loss of life in Boston and declared that the people of Israel had the people of Boston in their thoughts and prayers. Israel Humanitarian Aid stated that if needed, they would fly to Boston to provide assistance to first responders and the terror victims.
Not surprised by the Islamofacists response.
Stop Jihad Now!
The Liberal allies.
Friends of Chris Matthews.
Don’t recall such reports about Benghazi.
I remember seeing the video of those bastards dancing in the streets and giving out candy on 9/11/01. Nothing bad enough can happen to the “Palestinians” as far as I’m concerned.
.....Or so he claims.
I look at the actions before the words.
It has vanished from the web. Big Sis no likie.
The UNholy trinity “celebrates” its sacrament....the Relgion of Pieces.
Maybe I’m just over-thinking, but I think this has all of the hallmarks of people operating under direction from a foreign source.
These bombs did not go off at a moment of maximum opportunity, like at the start of the race or when the first runners came in. The race was already over and only 2 of the total number of bombs worked. That means the people that made them didnt have tons of resources or direction on how to construct the devices, nor did they have any foresight to place the bombs at a time when they could have scored a bigger hit. They seemed to have just got a broad outline on what to do and then had to make it up from there.
If this was a domestic plot, the whole thing would have been tight in its planning and execution because the whole conspiracy would have been here in place to make sure it was done for maximum carnage.
It’s just like 9-11. Those guys made lots of mistakes, easily allowing themselves to be caught because the whole operation was being run on remote control from the other side of the world, leaving the 9-11 goons to have to improvise and fill in the blanks with learning to only take off at flight school or using box cutters. Only our side making more mistakes than they allowed them to to have as much success as they did.
Contrast that to the Unibomber and OKC. The people running the show were the ones doing the deed, and they didnt miss.
Nothing here suggests a leftist or right-wing culprit. The Boston Marathon represents nothing of interest to either side. No statement to be made against the government or a corporation.
But like the London bombings, 9-11, the attack in Indonesia or India, this was a hit at normalcy. Hit something that no one would ever see as a target, but will mess with them enough to disrupt their everyday routine.

Islam Clearly and Concisely Evil and Violent.
And slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution [of Muslims] is worse than slaughter [of non-believers] but if desist, then lo! Allah is forgiving and merciful. And fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah.
There is a good case to be made that the textual context of this particular passage is defensive war, even if the historical context was not. However, there are also two worrisome pieces to this verse. The first is that the killing of others is authorized in the event of persecution (a qualification that is ambiguous at best). The second is that fighting may persist until religion is for Allah. The example set by Muhammad is not reassuring.
Then fight in the cause of Allah, and know that Allah Heareth and knoweth all things.
Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not.
Not only does this verse establish that violence can be virtuous, but it also contradicts the myth that fighting is intended only in self-defense, since the audience was obviously not under attack at the time. From the Hadith, we know that Muhammad was actually trying to motivate his people into raiding caravans with this verse.
As to those who reject faith, I will punish them with terrible agony in this world and in the Hereafter, nor will they have anyone to help.
Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers, for that they joined companions with Allah, for which He had sent no authority.
This speaks directly of polytheists, yet it also includes Christians, since they believe in the Trinity (ie. what Muhammad incorrectly believed to be joining companions to Allah).
Let those fight in the way of Allah who sell the life of this world for the other. Whoso fighteth in the way of Allah, be he slain or be he victorious, on him We shall bestow a vast reward.
The martyrs of Islam are unlike the early Christians, led meekly to the slaughter. These Muslims are killed in battle, as they attempt to inflict death and destruction for the cause of Allah. Here is the theological basis for todays suicide bombers.
Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah . . .
They but wish that ye should reject Faith, as they do, and thus be on the same footing (as they): But take not friends from their ranks until they flee in the way of Allah (From what is forbidden). But if they turn renegades, seize them and slay them wherever ye find them; and (in any case) take no friends or helpers from their ranks.
Not equal are those believers who sit (at home) and receive no hurt, and those who strive and fight in the cause of Allah with their goods and their persons. Allah hath granted a grade higher to those who strive and fight with their goods and persons than to those who sit (at home). Unto all (in Faith) Hath Allah promised good: But those who strive and fight Hath He distinguished above those who sit (at home) by a special reward,-
This passage criticizes peaceful Muslims who do not join in the violence, letting them know that they are less worthy in Allahs eyes. It also demolishes the modern myth that Jihad doesnt mean holy war in the Quran, but rather a spiritual struggle. Not only is the Arabic word used in this passage, but it is clearly not referring to anything spiritual, since the physically disabled are given exemption. (The Hadith reveals the context of the passage to be in response to a blind mans protest that he is unable to engage in Jihad and this is reflected in other translations of the verse).
And be not weak hearted in pursuit of the enemy; if you suffer pain, then surely they (too) suffer pain as you suffer pain Is pursuing an injured and retreating enemy really an act of self-defense?
The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement
I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them
No reasonable person would interpret this to mean a spiritual struggle.
O ye who believe! When ye meet those who disbelieve in battle, turn not your backs to them. (16)Whoso on that day turneth his back to them, unless maneuvering for battle or intent to join a company, he truly hath incurred wrath from Allah, and his habitation will be hell, a hapless journeys end.
And fight with them until there is no more persecution and religion should be only for Allah
From the historical context we know that the persecution spoken of here was simply the refusal by the Meccans to allow Muhammad to enter their city and perform the Haj. Other Muslims were able to travel there, just not as an armed group, since Muhammad declared war on Mecca prior to his eviction. The Meccans were also acting in defense of their religion, since it was Muhammads intention to destroy their idols and establish Islam by force (which he later did). Hence the critical part of this verse is to fight until religion is only for Allah. According to Ibn Ishaq (324), Muhammad justified the violence further by explaining that Allah must have no rivals.
If thou comest on them in the war, deal with them so as to strike fear in those who are behind them, that haply they may remember.
And let not those who disbelieve suppose that they can outstrip (Allahs Purpose). Lo! they cannot escape. Make ready for them all thou canst of (armed) force and of horses tethered, that thereby ye may dismay the enemy of Allah and your enemy.
O Prophet, exhort the believers to fight . . .
So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captives and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them.
According to this verse, the best way of staying safe from Muslim violence is to convert to Islam. Prayer (salat) and the poor tax (zakat) are among the religions Five Pillars.
Unlike nearly all of the Old Testament verses of violence, most of the verses of violence in the Quran are open-ended, meaning that the historical context is not embedded within the surrounding text. They are part of the eternal, unchanging word of Allah, and just as relevant or subjective as anything else in the Quran. They are in the area of the Quran that is equivalent to the New Testament of the Bible.
Unfortunately, there are very few verses of tolerance and peace to abrogate or even balance out the many that call for nonbelievers to be fought and subdued until they either accept humiliation, convert to Islam, or are killed. This proclivity toward violence (and Muhammads own martial legacy) has left a trail of blood and tears across world history.
This is what makes the verses of violence so dangerous. They are given the weight of Divine Command. While Muslim terrorists take them as literally as anything else in the Quran and understand that Islam is incomplete without Jihad, moderates offer little to contradict themoutside of opinion. Indeed, what do they have? Speaking of peace and love may win over the ignorant, but when every twelfth verse of Islams holiest book either speaks to Allahs hatred for non-Muslims or calls for their death, forced conversion, or subjugation, its little wonder that sympathy for terrorism runs as deeply as it does in the broader communityeven if most Muslims personally prefer not to interpret their religion in this way.
In fact, many Muslims are simply unaware of the Qurans near absence of verses that preach universal non-violence. This is because their understanding of Islam comes from what they are taught by others. In the West, it is typical for Muslims to come to believe that their religion must be like Christianitypreaching the New Testament virtues of peace, love, and tolerancebecause Muslims are taught that Islam is supposed to be superior in every way. They are somewhat surprised and embarrassed to learn that the evidence of the Quran and the bloody history of Islam are very much in contradiction to this . . .
Fight them, Allah will punish them by your hands and bring them to disgrace . . .
Those who believe, and have left their homes and striven with their wealth and their lives in Allahs way are of much greater worth in Allahs sight. These are they who are triumphant.
The striving spoken of here is Jihad.
Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.
People of the Book refers to Christians and Jews. This was one of the final revelations from Allah and it set in motion the tenacious military expansion in which Muhammads companions managed to conquer two-thirds of the Christian world in just the next 100 years. Islam is intended to dominate all other people and faiths.
And the Jews say: Ezra is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them; how they are turned away!
O ye who believe! what is the matter with you, that, when ye are asked to go forth in the cause of Allah, ye cling heavily to the earth? Do ye prefer the life of this world to the Hereafter? But little is the comfort of this life, as compared with the Hereafter. Unless ye go forth, He will punish you with a grievous penalty, and put others in your place.
This is a warning to those who refuse to fight, that they will be punished with Hell.
Go forth, light-armed and heavy-armed, and strive with your wealth and your lives in the way of Allah! That is best for you if ye but knew. See also the verse that follows (9:42) If there had been immediate gain (in sight), and the journey easy, they would (all) without doubt have followed thee, but the distance was long, (and weighed) on them
This contradicts the myth that Muslims are to fight only in self-defense, since the wording implies that battle will be waged a long distance from home (in another country and on Christian soil, in this case, according to the historians).
O Prophet! strive hard against the unbelievers and the hypocrites and be unyielding to them; and their abode is hell, and evil is the destination.
Dehumanizing those who reject Islam, by reminding Muslims that they are merely firewood for Hell, makes it easier to justify slaughter. It also explains why todays devout Muslims have little regard for those outside the faith.
But the Messenger, and those who believe with him, strive and fight with their wealth and their persons: for them are (all) good things: and it is they who will prosper.
Allah hath purchased of the believers their persons and their goods; for theirs (in return) is the garden (of Paradise): they fight in His cause, and slay and are slain: a promise binding on Him in truth, through the Law, the Gospel, and the Quran: and who is more faithful to his covenant than Allah? then rejoice in the bargain which ye have concluded: that is the achievement supreme.
O you who believe! fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you and let them find in you hardness.
This parable lays the theological groundwork for honor killings, in which a family member is murdered because they brought shame to the family, either through apostasy or perceived moral indiscretion. The story, which is not found in any Jewish or Christian source, tells of Moses encountering a man with special knowledge who does things which dont seem to make sense on the surface, but are then justified according to later explanation. One such action is to murder a youth for no apparent reason (74). However, the wise man later explains that it was feared that the boy would grieve his parents by disobedience and ingratitude. He was killed so that Allah could provide them a better son.
We gave the good things of this life to these men and their fathers until the period grew long for them; See they not that We gradually reduce the land (in their control) from its outlying borders? Is it then they who will win?
Therefore listen not to the Unbelievers, but strive against them with the utmost strenuousness . . .
Strive against is Jihadobviously not in the personal context. Its also significant to point out that this is a Meccan verse.
If the hypocrites, and those in whose hearts is a disease, and the alarmists in the city do not cease, We verily shall urge thee on against them, then they will be your neighbors in it but a little while. Accursed, they will be seized wherever found and slain with a (fierce) slaughter.
This passage sanctions the slaughter (rendered merciless and horrible murder in other translations) against three groups: Hypocrites (Muslims who refuse to fight in the way of Allah (3:167) and hence dont act as Muslims should), those with diseased hearts (which include Jews and Christians 5:51-52), and alarmists or agitators who include those who merely speak out against Islam, according to Muhammads biographers. It is worth noting that the victims are to be sought out by Muslims, which is what todays terrorists do. If this passage is meant merely to apply to the city of Medina, then it is unclear why it is included in Allahs eternal word to Muslim generations.
Those who reject Allah follow vanities, while those who believe follow the truth from their lord. Thus does Allah set forth form men their lessons by similtudes. Therefore when you meet in battle those who disbelieve, then smite the necks until when you have overcome them, then make (them) prisoners, Those who reject Allah are to be subdued in battle. The verse goes on to say the only reason Allah doesnt do the dirty work himself is in order to to test the faithfulness of Muslims. Those who kill pass the test. But if it had been Allahs Will, He could certainly have exacted retribution from them (Himself); but (He lets you fight) in order to test you, some with others. But those who are slain in the Way of Allah,- He will never let their deeds be lost.
Be not weary and faint-hearted, crying for peace, when ye should be uppermost (Shakir: have the upper hand) for Allah is with you.
This very important verse asserts that the Religion of Peace is not to grant peace to the broader society until Islamic rule has been established.
There is no blame for the blind, nor is there blame for the lame, nor is there blame for the sick (that they go not forth to war). And whoso obeyeth Allah and His messenger, He will make him enter Gardens underneath which rivers flow; and whoso turneth back, him will He punish with a painful doom.
Contemporary apologists sometimes claim that Jihad means spiritual struggle. If so, then why are the blind, lame and sick exempted?
Muhammad is the messenger of Allah. And those with him are hard (ruthless) against the disbelievers and merciful among themselves
Islam is not about treating everyone equally. There are two very distinct standards that are applied based on religious status.
Surely Allah loves those who fight in His way Religion of Peace, indeed! This is followed by (61:9): He it is who has sent His Messenger (Mohammed) with guidance and the religion of truth (Islam) to make it victorious over all religions even though the infidels may resist.
O ye who believe! Shall I lead you to a bargain that will save you from a grievous Penalty?- That ye believe in Allah and His Messenger, and that ye strive (your utmost) in the Cause of Allah, with your property and your persons: That will be best for you, if ye but knew! He will forgive you your sins, and admit you to Gardens beneath which Rivers flow, and to beautiful mansions in Gardens of Eternity.
This verse was given in battle. It uses the Arabic word, Jihad.
O Prophet! Strive against the disbelievers and the hypocrites, and be stern with them. Hell will be their home, a hapless journeys end.
The root word of Jihad is used again here. The context is clearly holy war, and the scope of violence is broadened to include hypocrites those who call themselves Muslims but do not act as such.
From the Hadith:
Allahs Apostle said, The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him.
The Prophet was asked whether it was permissible to attack the pagan warriors at night with the probability of exposing their women and children to danger. The Prophet replied, They (i.e. women and children) are from them (i.e. pagans).
In this command, Muhammad establishes that it is permissible to kill non-combatants in the process of killing a perceived enemy. This provides justification for the many Islamic terror bombings.
Allahs Apostle said I have been made victorious with terror
Abu Dawud (14:2526)
The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: Three things are the roots of faith: to refrain from (killing) a person who utters, There is no god but Allah and not to declare him unbeliever whatever sin he commits, and not to excommunicate him from Islam for his any action; and jihad will be performed continuously since the day Allah sent me as a prophet until the day the last member of my community will fight with the Dajjal (Antichrist)
Abu Dawud (14:2527)
The Prophet said: Striving in the path of Allah (jihad) is incumbent on you along with every ruler, whether he is pious or impious.
The Messenger of Allah said: I have been commanded to fight against people till they testify that there is no god but Allah, that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.
Allahs Apostle said, I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: None has the right to be worshipped but Allah
Abu Dharr reported: I said: Messenger of Allah, which of the deeds is the best? He (the Holy Prophet) replied: Belief in Allah and Jihad in His cause . . .
. . . He (the Messenger of Allah) did that and said:
There is another act which elevates the position of a man in Paradise to a grade one hundred (higher), and the elevation between one grade and the other is equal to the height of the heaven from the earth. He (Abu Said) said: What is that act? He replied: Jihad in the way of Allah! Jihad in the way of Allah!
The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said:
One who died but did not fight in the way of Allah nor did he express any desire (or determination) for Jihid died the death of a hypocrite.
Three separate hadith in which Muhammad shrugs over the news that innocent children were killed in a raid by his men against unbelievers. His response:
They are of them (meaning the enemy).
Tabari 7:97 -
The morning after the murder of Ashraf, the Prophet declared,
Kill any Jew who falls under your power.
Ashraf was a poet, killed by Muhammads men because he insulted Islam. Here, Muhammad widens the scope of his orders to kill. An innocent Jewish businessman was then slain by his Muslim partner, merely for being non-Muslim.
Tabari 9:69 -
Killing Unbelievers is a small matter to us The words of Muhammad, prophet of Islam.
Ibn Ishaq: 327
Allah said, A prophet must slaughter before collecting captives. A slaughtered enemy is driven from the land. Muhammad, you craved the desires of this world, its goods and the ransom captives would bring. But Allah desires killing them to manifest the religion.
Ibn Ishaq: 990
Lest anyone think that cutting off someones head while screaming Allah Akbar! is a modern custom, here is an account of that very practice under Muhammad, who seems to approve.
Ibn Ishaq: 992
Fight everyone in the way of Allah and kill those who disbelieve in Allah.
Muhammads instructions to his men prior to a military raid.
This is incriminating, in a more-than-tacit sort of way, is it not?
What I wouldn’t give to be on the West Bank tonight with an M240 and all the belts I could carry.
Of course they do! But it’s still special....
The only good mozlum is a dead one.
You know, that if Israel engaged in a little bit of “counter-terrorism”, I for one would appreciate the gesture.
CT is, for example, using a car bomb to attack a known car bomber or his handlers. In this case, setting off a bomb on the street while they are having their little celebration would really make for some primo instant karma.
No claim of responsibility, left in confusion and distress as to who would attack them while they are celebrating the death and injury of innocent people.
They do this to other people. It’s not *fair* when somebody does it to them!
