The Motive Cover Up of the Boston Bombings Begins

Why are government officials, politicians, army officers, academics and journalists afraid to point out the truth?
Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick said that he had no idea why the Tsarnaev brothers would target "innocent men, women and children."

In this pursuit no idiocy is unthinkable. Canadian Liberal Party leader Justin Trudeau, who is trying to be an Obama clone, explained, “There is no question that this happened because of someone who feels completely excluded, someone who feels completely at war…with society.”

The solution, then, is not to “marginalize people even further who already feel like they are enemies of society rather than people who have hope for the future.”

In other words, doing anything is more dangerous than doing nothing. To combat radical Islam is to hurt people’s feelings and that will produce more terrorism.

They were allowed in (rather questionably) as permanent residents and suddenly large numbers of relatives were in the United States as well (so much for draconian immigration laws); one of the brothers became a citizen. They went to the best schools. What did they learn there about the greatness of America? Was the seed of rage fertilized by the demonization of American history as evil, greedy, racist, and imperialist? One of them even got a scholarship.

It is vital to understand the profound difference between these two and the September 11 hijackers, men who came on a mission of sabotage and murder. They reached the U.S. shore as enemies, reliable agents of revolutionary retribution.

These two young men, however, had a free choice. They had to actively close their minds to everything good they experienced and to adopt an ideology of hate. Only a very powerful force could move them in that direction. We have seen this frequently in the United Kingdom and France.

Guess what? If such comparisons were to be made it would have to be acknowledged that there is a second-generation (though strictly speaking these two were first generation) time bomb implanted. That means one can expect many more attacks like this. But will anyone make that point?

Their normality will be used to make them seem…normal, their motive inexplicable. But on the contrary it is their very apparent normality, their seeming assimilation into American life, which makes the situation so scary.

What about their mosque and other contacts in the Muslim community? Why didn’t they get an anti-extremist indoctrination there, an explanation of what Islam really is about? They attended a Muslim Brotherhood sponsored mosque (but that won’t be said) and the Boston Muslim religious leadership is full of extremists (the evidence of which has long been available). The mosque even received a subsidy from Boston even as it hosted anti-American speakers who made the precise arguments used to rationalize terrorism.We won’t be hearing much about these issues though.

Well, except for two aspects: the story is now circulating that one of the brothers was thrown out of his mosque for being too radical. Then, there are all the denunciations of the terror attack by Islamist front groups. The New York Times article on motive cited these statements three times. I believe that groups like CAIR do not support the Boston attack or al-Qaeda. But they support many other terrorist attacks and they support the ideology and set of beliefs on which the Boston attack is based. That’s why so many associated with CAIR, even on a senior level, have become involved in anti-American terrorism.

Having followed this issue for many years, I have never heard of a single anti-radicalization program conducted by any mosque or “mainstream” Islamic group. Real moderates are isolated, vilified, denied media attention and even forced out of local mosques. In a 2011 Pew poll, fully half of American Muslims say their leaders aren’t doing enough to fight extremism. That last point can safely be used as a certified non-“Islamophobic” argument about where much of the problem lies. But it won’t be.

And of course there is the troubled youth angle to be played to the fullest. Yes, the tribulations of young adulthood and adolescence are factors. But only inasmuch as it makes them vulnerable to systematic indoctrination. In other words, their specific psychology and even personal experiences are not the motive any more than the childhood of a professional hit-man for the Mafia is.

Another angle will be the growing story of governmental incompetence in using intelligence to stop terrorists. In part, this is unfair since there have also been many successes. A more important issue is why government officials, politicians, army officers, academics, and journalists fear to point out the truth. Look at the Nidal Hassan/Fort Hood case. Doing so is bad for their careers and reputation, as well as being sometimes counter to their ideology.

  1. I’m not sure but Glen Beck is just about disclose EVERYTHING on his radio show in about 5 minutes !

  2. Glenn Beck??? LOL. I do not think Barry Rubin has to worry much about typical Americans. These two guys were crazy murderers and the connection to Islam extremism is very clear. If they would have put that kid out on the street that evening, they would have literally torn him to pieces with their bare hands. Even one of his uncles damned him in pretty convincing language. Most people were expecting that the terrorists were Islamic immediately regardless of news reports.

  3. Horrific what happened and yes the US government has always been in denial. http://www.facebook.com/groups/DzhokharTsarnaev This discussion forum has thousands of people sharing information, pointing out observations, perceived flaws in police claims and wild theories. Clearly people want to know the truth.

  4. Edit…Delete…Bernhard Rosenberg · 64 years old.
    Here is proof that the murderers in Boston are extremists Muslims. It is in Russian, II had someone translate it. It is his Facebook with extremist Muslim beliefs. Check out it out for yourself. My Synagogue and I have been threatened and damage was done to my garage door. and side of the house. This was sent by me to the Edison police and the F.B.I.

  5. They probably will never get it. But I think that Saudi guy was involved.

  6. They should both rot in H. Wake up America. This is pre-Nazi Germany and the extremists are the Nazis. Have no mercy for they want to murder us. Remember the innocent child and young people and those who died and who are without limbs. Remember 911. Have no mercy for they seek a heaven with virgins that do not exist while we want to live only in peace. Rabbi DR. BERNHARD ROSENBERG P.S. I AM a clergyman who who will never forgive or forget what the Nazis did when THEY MURDERED MY FAMILY, innocent babies and men and women. I have no mercy on villains.

  7. FYI RABBI DR. BERNHARD ROSENBERG

    Fascinating! The media keeps quoting the Sura which paraphrases the mishna in Sanhedrin about the value of human life. This video shows that the Sura is a directive to the Jews and that the Sura validates/implies that the land of Israel belongs to the Jews.

    The video then goes on to the next verse which is a directive to the Muslims advocating.
    death and mutilation to those who disagree with Islam.

    Not being familiar with the Koran, it was an eye opener not only seeing the first verse in context, but seeing the verse which follows it advocating terrorist behaviors.

  8. Gil Gilman says:

    The Boston bombing is already being shuttled into the background everywhere but Boston, and the East Coast, and everyone with an Israel connection, or anti radical islamist perspective. Why? "Well I really didn't know them, they weren't my family or friends, it was tragic, but people are killed everyday…" It is a whole lot easier to block it out than to begin changing a hardened perspective. The political forces and pundits mentioned in the article see the event as more a threat to their egos and philosophies than anything else, so they obfuscate to maintain their domination of public opinion.

  9. what is the motive? what is the question? I lshuddered when I saw the islamic propaganda machine crank up and the media obligingly honor the psycho cult by disseminating its noxious lies.

  10. Well you are wrong. The bomber himself told us the reason today. It was revenge for the war in Afghanistan and Iraq. Just like every bomb every explouded in Israel is revenge for forced removal of people from their homes in 1948 in Isreal. We act, there are consequences.

  11. Allison Tierney Jeffers says:

    Now you're coming down on my people??!! Keep it coming – I love getting Dusty's BostonStrong rants in my feed…

  12. Mark Willett says:

    In what context are the people being referred to "innocent men, women and children.", innocent – in Governer Patrick's statement?

    The innocence would have to be based on the premise of perp.

  13. When I hear them say what is the motive; let's be serious here; the motive lies in the Koran itself where there are over 165 instances of Jihad. State the facts; When was the last time you heard of a Hindu Terrorist, Taoist Terrorist, or Buddist Terrorist. Please I don't want to hear them say the motive one more time; because if you want the motive; well just look in the Koran.

  14. Greg Bokor says:

    while the war in Afghanistan and Iraq are horrible, why use violence on others to make your point. Self-immolation or blow off your own legs as a statement, why hurt innocents?
