NY Times Sleuths Uncover Motivation Behind Boston Bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev: “He was angry that the world pictures Islam as a violent religion”

Killing four people and wounding over 250 will sure show the world Islam is mostly peaceful.

Elmirza Khozhugov, 26, the ex-husband of Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s younger sister, Ailina, said that Tamerlan Tsarnaev had been enamored of conspiracy theories, and that he was also concerned by the wars in the Middle East.

“He was looking for connections between the wars in the Middle East and oppression of Muslim population around the globe,” Mr. Khozhugov said in an e-mail. “It was very hard to argue with him on themes somehow connected to religion. On the other hand, he did not hate Christians. He respected their faith. Never said anything bad about other religions. But he was angry that the world pictures Islam as a violent religion.”

If he was so concerned about the “oppression of Muslim population” perhaps he should have taken it out on those responsible for it: Other Muslims.

    He was angry about how muslims were perceived. And he then built a pressure cooker bomb similar to one described in DIY instructions supplied by………a muslim terrorist group that hates everybody; including Christians. And which does so because it’s waging a ‘holy’ war.

    Way to go champ.

    This fake message that mainstream media is putting out is disgraceful. They are collaborators. The little muslim bastard criminal should be judged for what he did. Don’t make excuses for him. He’s a coward. If he really wanted to fight for islam he could’ve gone overseas, enlisted/volunteered for some jihad, etc. His motivation is that he’s muslim and muslims are violent criminals. It’s not hard to understand.
