Fox reports: “Investigators piecing together the recent activities of the two suspected Boston Marathon bombers in an effort to determine when the older of the brothers began to embrace a radical brand of Islam should take a close look at where he worshipped, according to a group that has been eyeing the mosque for years.
To wit, here are some of his illustrious fellow worshipers at the family mosque:
Not only does the mosque in general have strong ties to the Muslim Brotherhood but one of its founders, Abdurahman Alamoudi, pled guilty in 2004 for conducting illegal transactions with the Libyan government and his partial role in a conspiracy to assassinate Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah. Alamoudi, who served as an Islamic adviser to President Clinton, was accused by critics of espousing pro-American language while lobbying in Washington, while expressing his support of terror groups Hamas and Hezbollah when addressing Islamist rallies.
In March 2010, Imam Abdullah Faarooq gave a sermon praising Aafia Siddiqui, an MIT graduate who had returned to her native Pakistan in 2003 and was later exposed as courier and financier for Al Qaeda. She was eventually arrested in Afghanistan with containers of sodium cyanide and notes on making a bomb. In his sermon, Faarooq proclaimed Siddiqui’s innocence and told worshippers, “You must grab on to this rope, grab on to the typewriter, grab on to the shovel, grab on to the gun and the sword, don’t be afraid to step out into this world and do your job.”
Yusuf Al-Qaradawi, an original trustee of the Islamic Society of Boston and known as the spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood. In the past, he has told followers in sermons that Jews and homosexuals should be “exterminated.” The Anti-Defamation League has referred to him as a “Theologian of Terror,” and he once wrote in an Arabic newspaper editorial that Jews are “the Rapists of worshippers of Allah.”
Tariq Mehanna and Ahmed Abousamra were mosque members who, in 2009, were indicted by federal prosecutors for providing material support to terrorists and conspiracy to kill in a foreign country.
Jihad Watch has a list of even more illustrious, so peaceful, and non-Jihadi members of the bombers’ mosque including at least one on the lam and on the FBI most-wanted list
And there so much more to suggest that these bombers acted as lone wolves, had no support or folks around and about to help ’em out with their plans, and gosh darn it is just incomprehensible how these guys ended up wanting to bomb innocent people whose taxes went to pay for the welfare payments they received for years in the country that gave them refuge and scholarships and opportunities…
Oh yeah, and Tamarlan was supposedly on a terror watch list (obviously they weren’t watching too closely), Russia not only contacted the U.S. intelligence with concerns over this guy and his terrorist ties once but multiple times (last time in November 2012) and undoubtedly more information will come out showing just how unconnected and lone wolfy these guys were — unless the govt manages to scrub the information like they tried to do with the Saudi National whom they had listed in their ‘deport!’ file as being ‘armed and dangerous.’ More on that soon.
