The Boston Bombing, Victimology and Shady Politicians
by Christine Williams
The newly minted Canadian Liberal Party leader Justin Trudeau””the son of former Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau””demonstrated his own lack of leadership ability in protecting the vital tenets of democracy when he justified the Boston bombings through his comment: “there is no question that this happened because of someone who feels completely excluded, someone who feels completely at war with innocence, at war with society.” He concluded with the advice not to “marginalize people even further who already feel like they are enemies of society rather than people who have hope for the future.”
Westerners should be incensed that an 8-year-old boy was killed among two other victims, while a political leader””a public servant””justifies the reason for the death of this child. Justin Trudeau’s comments were in reckless disregard for the family of this child, the other victims, the runners and the spectators who attended the Boston Marathon’s long tradition. Instead, his concern was to win the Muslim vote. As citizens, we need to stand firm that there is no justification for such violence, period.
The tragedy of what happened in Boston should be mourned, and the only question that needs to be investigated is the root of indoctrination that fuels such rage in Muslim youngsters. Members of every immigrant community wrestle with discrimination and feelings of being “completely excluded” at some point, as Trudeau describes it. Muslims are not unique. Boston’s Catholic archbishop warned of the “culture of death” that led to the bombing. At the Cathedral of the Holy Cross, Cardinal Sean P. O”Malley stated in his homily that it was difficult to understand “what demons were operative” in the minds of brothers Tamerlan and Â Dzhokhar Tsarnaev “¦”
To partially answer Cardinal O”Malley”s question, several of those “˜demons” were discovered on Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s YouTube page, where posts featured Islamic jihadist rhetoric. Among statements found were: “Congratulations to you those suffer for, who go through martyrdom of Allah illaha ill Allah.” Another video was posted called “Terrorists”; while another depicted Jihadists posing “with a flag of the Taliban’s Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan.” The video reportedly contained an apocalyptic message about the forces of Islam–led by the Mahdi–conquering the world prior to the Day of Judgment. Dzhokhar’s former classmate Eric Mercado also quoted Dzhokhar as once saying: “when justified, terrorism isn’t necessarily a bad thing.” The Boston bombs were said to be packed inside a pressure cooker and they were constructed with striking similarities to instructions put forth in Al Qaeda’s “Inspire” magazine.
Such disturbing facts also need to be paired with other “demons” which reside in the mosques that are plaguing the young Muslim community. Fuelled by Saudi Arabian petrodollars, hate ideology is being preached in a relentless campaign to Islamize the West. Muslim congregants are being taught martyrdom, and hatred against Jews, Christians and the infidel.Â All the while, unscrupulous politicians are “purchased” by Muslim votes.
Another aspect to that “culture of death” is that it uses fear, intimidation and oppression, as evidenced in every Islamic culture where Shariah law dominates globally, as a means to control the masses which are subjugated under them. This culture of superiority seeks also to subjugate the West through fear and a victimology subterfuge. Yet despite the Boston tragedy, fear did not dominate in the streets of London, England, where runners claimed back their sport. 36,000 people joined in a competitive run with half a million spectators. At its beginning, it was marked by a 30-second moment of silence in memory of the Boston bombing.Â Â
After announcing the arrest of the second Boston bombing suspect–19-year-old Dzhokar Tsarnaev–on Twitter, Boston police tweeted: “CAPTURED!!! The hunt is over. The search is done. The terror is over. And justice has won. Suspect in custody.” Comforting words, but not true in reality. It is far from over. We quickly “forgot” about 9/11 in the face of political correctness and accusations about victimhood and “Islamophobia,” but in the meantime, the issue will not disappear, and Western democracy stands at grave risk, not only at the hands of this “culture of death” as we saw demonstrated in Boston, but equally””or worse””at the hands of Western politicians who sell out our democracy and their own principles to gain votes.
