Take a look.
A hat tip to Sean Hannity and BuzzFeed, here are the YouTube favorites of one Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the older – and now dead – Boston Marathon terrorist, as Tamerlan himself posted them on his YouTube channel, found here.
There’s this one -- "Allah is the One" -- which includes these on-screen passages over chanting and a voice speaking in Arabic and English in a video titled “Allah is Calling Out to You With His Mercy”:
Allah will wipe away your sins and keep your deeds.
I seek refuge in Allah, from Satan the outcast.
It is you we worship, and you we ask for help.
Next is this one -- "And They say, Its Only Sunnah | Shaykh Feiz Mohammed." Feiz Mohammad is identified here as an Australian fundamentalist Muslim preacher of Lebanese descent who fled Australia for Lebanon and is now in Malayasia. Aside from saying that women are responsible for rape, Mohammed has said:
We want to have children and offer them as soldiers defending Islam... Teach them this: there is nothing more beloved to me than wanting to die as a mujahid. Put in their soft, tender hearts the zeal of jihad and a love of martyrdom.
This story in the Australian paper The Age gives details about Mohammed’s history in Australia.
Here’s a video titled "End of Days" that was a favorite of Tamerlan Tsarnaev by an American rapper named Vinnie Paz – an Italian Catholic kid from South Philly who hated George W. Bush and became a Muslim. Warning: the video, done in rap music style, contains offensive language. Paz believes 9/11 was an inside job.
Here is video titled "The Emerging Prophecy: The Black Flags From Khorasan." Filled with images of Islamic terrorists training and marching it begins with a voice saying: “In the name of Allah the Beneficent." Then these words, in English, appear on the screen:
Then Allah (SWT) will rise an army from the non-Arabs who will be greater riders and will have better weapons than the Arabs…
If you see the Black Banners coming from the direction of Khorasan, then go to them. Even if you have to crawl, because among them will be Allah’s Caliph the Mahdi.
Where, you may ask is Khorasan? Greater Khorasan is located in parts of Iran, Afghanistan and Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, and Tajikistan in Central Asia. All, obviously, Muslim strongholds.
The film promises that the black flags will not stop until they reach Jerusalem where they will finally erect their flags. It also scorns those that “demonize” believers as “terrorists.”
Not to be forgotten is an ode to Muslim women, found here.
Beyond these, other videos, not in English, will doubtless be pored over in the coming days.
But one thing is for certain: As former Vice President Cheney noted all the way back in March of 2009 in this CNN interview as he saw the new Obama Administration dismantling the work of the Bush-Cheney era:
"President Obama campaigned against it all across the country, and now he is making some choices that, in my mind, will, in fact, raise the risk to the American people of another attack," he said.
That attack, that day, has now arrived.
