No Sympathy for the Devil

By Martin Mawyer  

Alan Colmes, the liberal radio and television commentator, is disgusted.  He’s outraged over the media’s treatment of the mother of the Boston Marathon bombers.

“We’re beating up on a grieving mother?” he tweeted out.

On FOX, he further says that though the mother may be in “denial,” she certainly is “not responsible” for the action of her two sons.

Alan Colmes would like all of us to feel sympathy for a grieving mother who cannot possibly come to grips with the death of one son, the arrest of another.  A mother who is so distraught that she actually believes the whole Boston bombing attack was nothing more than a “fake” play with staged blood, dismembered limbs, dead bodies and Hollywood type explosions.

In reality, the only thing being “faked” and “staged” is the supposed grief of this bad-acting mother.  Most Americans knows this, even if the obvious escapes Alan Colmes.

America has a right to be fuming while watching the antics of this mother, Zubeidat Tsarnaeva.  She gives new perspective to the phrase “adding insult to injury.”

First America suffers a senseless bombing that kills three, wounds 282, leaving many of the victims with shrapnel wounds and mutilations.  Then, after photos were released of the suspected bombers, her two sons commit another senseless killing by assassinating Officer Sean Collier while he was seated in his patrol car.

They shot him five times, apparently for no reason.

“There is no rhyme or reason for what they did or why they did it,” Somerville Police chief Tom Pasquarello told ABC News.

This is “injury” to be sure which America, and especially the victims and their families, have to suffer through.

Now comes the “insult.”

A mother who claims it was all faked and staged.

“America took my kids away from me,” she said.  They were killed, she asserts, “because they were Muslim.”

Because we are watching this mother on the TVs inside our living rooms, it’s easy to think this message is for us.  We think her whole goal is to make us feel embarrassed, make us feel her grief and make us doubt America’s greatness.

With the exception of Alan Colmes (and perhaps a few other liberal commentators) it’s not working.  Of course not.  But what we fail to realize is…

…this crazy mother’s message is not even meant for us!

Her message is for the radicals inside the Islamic world, the world of Jihadists -- like her two sons -- who are willing to kill, maim and destroy over any perceived American offense or injustice.

Her one son is dead.  The other is in jail.  But the terrorist plot of these two young men against America live on in the hands – no, out of the mouth – of their deranged, American-hating, Jihadist mother.

She is intentionally spewing out American hatred into the radical world of Islam hoping, I might even say praying, for more American bloodshed.

“I want the world to hear this,” she told CNN.  “And I don’t care if I am going to get killed too.  And I will say Allahu akbar!”

She wants to be the inspiration of more terrorist acts on America, an inspiration she probably inflicted on her own two sons.

The history of this “grieving” mother and what we know about her is not pretty.

She was arrested in July 2012 for stealing $1,600 worth of clothes from a Lord & Taylor store.   In 2011, she learned from a text from her oldest son that he was ready to die for Islam, yet she seemed shocked, surprised, saddened and ready to blame America when he did.

Then we learn that Zubeidat, herself, was placed on the federal Terror Identities list in 2011, at about the same time she received the text message from her jihadist son that he was ready to die for his religion.

Are we really to feel sorry for her?   Grieve for her loss?

The real story is that she was willing to sacrifice her sons for the global cause of Jihad – a cause she continues to inspire with her crazy rant and raves about America’s wanton killing of her son.

How else could you explain this statement she gave to CNN? “I don’t care if my youngest son is killed.”

While Alan Colmes is telling the nation not to “beat up” on this grieving mother, she is claiming she doesn’t care if her youngest son is killed.

Why?  How could any mother who truly believes her eldest son was murdered by American authorities because of he was a Muslim also say she doesn’t care if they also kill her youngest son?

Because she wants to make both of them martyrs for Islam.  It’s the only explanation.

Virtually all Americans would find it outrageous to think a mother would intentionally sacrifice her son for the cause of Islam.

But this isn’t shocking news to those who have studied radical Islam.  It happens frequently.

Hamas has launched an entire website applauding parents who encourage their children to become suicide bombers and Martyrs.  Also, you can watch a video of Muslim children being trained to become suicide bombers here.

This is strange, perverse and almost impossible to believe.

But seeing is believing as can be seen here where Gaza children sign the praises of suicide bombings and becoming martyrs for Islam.

One child is seen on the video saying: “The mothers send their sons to victory or to Paradise, Allah willing.”

Rather than looking at Zubeidat Tsarnaeva as a grieving mother, she should be investigated as a co-conspirator.

She knows very well that her incredulous story of American brutality, callousness and Islamic violence against her Muslim sons will resonate in the jihadi world.

We would all be silly not to understand how successful she may be in inspiring others, like her sons, to continue their murderous attacks on America.

Even President Barack Obama knows that.

When the President needed a way to deflect the Benghazi attacks that killed four Americans on September 11, 2012 away from his own administration, he simply blamed it on an American-made anti-Islam video called “Innocence of Muslims.”

Few had even heard of this film before.

But sure enough, Obama knew how to enrage radical Muslims.  Blame it on an American-made anti-Islam film.  And as expected…

….riots occurred in Pakistan, Egypt, Yemen, Morocco, Tehran, Libya and elsewhere.

It doesn’t take much to anger this part of the Islamic world.  It doesn’t take much proof, or authenticity or credibility.

It just takes an unfounded accusation – crazy as it may be, even from an angry, deranged mother.  Ask Obama.
