A friend of the deceased Boston Marathon bombing suspect will remain in jail, a judge ruled Thursday.

In the ruling, the judge said he is not sure Khairullozhon Matanov will show up in court.

Matanov has been held without bail since his arrest in May. He’s been charged with impeding the investigation into the bombings. Matanov is a native of Kyrgyzstan and has previously been called a flight risk by a judge.

Matanov claimed to have two years of legal training. If that is true, he is now in position to focus solely on his own defense rather than to make further financial remittances under 7 names to parties around the globe.

Mohammed al-Daif was the guest of honor on Tuesday at people’s homes in Gaza and the surrounding areas. The “Phantom,” as the Israeli media calls him, appeared in his calm voice and confident tone to confirm in a less-than-four-minute audio recording that “there will be no ceasefire unless the aggression is stopped and the siege is lifted.”

His last audio recording was towards the end of al-Furqan Battle or Operation Cast Lead as it was named by Hamas and Israel respectively in 2008. At the time, Hamas’ General said the Resistance will emerge from this battle victorious and stronger.

But who is Daif?

His real name is Mohammed Diab Ibrahim al-Masri, aka Mohammed al-Daif. He was born in the city of Khan Younis in southern Gaza in 1965 to a poor family and his father was an upholsterer by trade. His rank is general commander of the Izzedine al-Qassam Brigades, Hamas’ military wing. He is also known as Abu Khaled, or the Phantom, or Hamas’ General.

Israel has always sought to assassinate the Phantom who has haunted them for years.Daif is one al-Qassam Brigades’ hawks. He does not believe in negotiations and does not think peace talks will lead to a free Palestine. For him, resistance is the answer. He hates the Arab regimes as he knows that, they too, will not liberate Palestine. The man believes in forging an alliance with Iran and Hezbollah in Lebanon and with everyone who wants to provide the Resistance in Palestine with arms. He does not deny Iran’s role in arming al-Qassam Brigades. He is reported to have said, this is the “duty of the Muslim nation.”

Hamas’ general has survived four assassination attempts, one of them cost him an eye and burns to his face and made him partially paralyzed. Daif was the brains behind previous wars with the Israeli occupation that al-Qassem Brigades fought. In calmer times, the Phantom worked on strengthening the Resistance by arming and training it.

Daif reappeared after an absence of six years through a short audio recording and addressed the Palestinian people, Israel and whoever is negotiating for a ceasefire, be it the Palestinian Authority, Egypt or even the political bureau of his own organization. …

At least six people have been killed in a suicide bombing at a college in northern Nigeria’s biggest city, Kano, witnesses say.

The female bomber is reported to have blown herself up as students queued to check their names on an admission list.

Meanwhile the government says a 10-year-old girl with a suicide belt has been arrested in a neighbouring state.

Militant Islamist group Boko Haram has been waging an insurgency in Nigeria since 2009.

The college bombing was the fifth attack in Kano since Sunday.

'Huge crowd'

At least three of the attacks were carried out by female bombers, in what BBC Nigeria analyst Aliyu Tanko describes as a new trend in the insurgency.

It is unclear whether the group is recruiting female bombers or forcing kidnapped girls to carry out suicide missions, he says.

Boko Haram (Jama’atu Ahlis Sunna Lidda’Awati Wal-Jihad, a.k.a. Jama’atu Ahlus-Sunnah Lidda’Awati Wal Jihad, a.k.a. Jama’atu Ahlus-Sunna Lidda’Awati Wal Jihad, meaning "People Committed to the Prophet’s Teachings for Propagation and Jihad)  is holding more than 200 girls that its gunmen abducted during a raid in April on a boarding school in Chibok town in the northern state of Borno.

I nearly got [Bin Laden]. And I could have killed him, but I would have to destroy a little town called Kandahar in Afghanistan and kill 300 innocent women and children, and then I would have been no better than him. And so I didn’t do it.

Bill Fuckin’ Clinton channeling Private Henry Tandey. Leave it to the truth challenged, normative moral relativist to engage in another chapter of his historical revisionism by equating, then substituting "nearly got" to "would have" if only… 

What a heap of steaming sophism by a POS Commander-In-Chief. By all means show the world the overheads of "300 innocent women and children" you spared along with a red circle around OBL. For the sake of the nation, keep it zipped ( both your mouth and your zipper) Mr. President.


Anonymous asked:

Dzhokhar was an avid skateboarder, and the night before the Monday bombings he cruised down Norfolk Street toward the house. A neighbor and family members were on their porch, and one called out a greeting and complimented him on his skateboard about 10:30 p.m., He answered something like, “Yeah, thanks,” she said.--from Washington Post. This might explain the vaseline.

justice4dzhokhar answered:

Um I guess I’m not skateboard savy. Is Vaseline used often in that sport? There’s really a million uses for Vaseline and given that he was a 19 year old guy at the time…well lol you get the point. Hell maybe he has really dry skin lol…it’s hardly a smoking gun but damn if everyone hasn’t turned it into that as if the criminal uses for it are common knowledge.



I use the Vaseline as a hand cream for a dry skin, my husband during the winter as well.

Vaseline’s sometimes used as a cheap lubricant for skateboard bearings (cylinders on the wheels).

The cat wasn’t in the hat ( the dorm ). The Vaseline was taken from the dorm by the D,A, and R, then placed into the backpack which also contained the hollowed out fireworks. Vaseline is used in bomb making as a binder. At least 1 of the 3 semi-UMASS students were fully aware of  the Vaseline’s role in bomb making , hence the Vaseline was placed into the backpack. In time the backpack was put in a dumpster then watched (at least by Azamat) when taken away to the landfill. The container of Vaseline in question was not in found Cambridge, the Vaseline was found in the Dartmouth dorm.

There is deepening concern among intelligence agencies about the potential for the bloody Syrian and Iraqi civil wars to spill over onto Australia’s shores, with Attorney-General George Brandis saying the threat presented by returning Islamist fighters is the greatest threat to Australian security in years.

The ABC’s 7.30 program can reveal that New South Wales Police have issued warrants seeking the immediate arrest of Khaled Sharrouf and Mohamed Elomar for terrorism offences if they return to Australia.

The two Sydney men travelled to Syria and then Iraq late last year and joined the most vicious of the Al Qaeda-linked groups fighting there, the Islamic State, formerly known as ISIS or ISIL. …

Profiles of Djohar Tsarnaev’s Twitter, Tamerlan’s Alleged YouTube Channel


The suspects behind the bombings during the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013, Chechen brothers Djohar (Dzhokhar) and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, both maintained social networking accounts, one on the microblogging website Twitter, and the other on the video sharing site YouTube. According to reports, Tamerlan was killed during a clash with police on April 19, and Djohar was later taken into police custody after a hours-long manhunt.


As reportedly confirmed by Djohar’s friends, the 19-year-old Boston bombings suspect has a Twitter account under the name “J_tsar,” which he made in October 2011. While most of his posts concern his day to day life and experiences at school and with friends, on the day of the bombings, April 15, Djohar posted, “Ain’t no love in the heart of the city, stay safe people”. The following day, as authorities were scouring surveillance footage from the scene of the attack looking for clues about the perpetrator or perpetrators, he posted: “There are people that know the truth but stay silent & there are people that speak the truth but we don’t hear them cuz they’re the minority”


He also tweeted messages to friends, including his writing “fake story” to a post about a man who found the woman he was going to propose to dead as a result of the bombings. Later, on April 17, he posted a terse message, “I’m a stress free kind of guy,” and then, twelve hours later, retweeted a post from an Islamic scholar in Zimbabwe, Mufti Ismail Menk: “Attitude can take away your beauty no matter how good looking you are or it could enhance your beauty, making you adorable.”

Among the 104 accounts Djohar followed is “Ghuraba,” meaning “Strangers,” with the account “Al_firdausiA,” which translates to “the highest level of Paradise, Allah willing”. The account (Comment: whether this is a 2nd Jahar or not has long since been determined) has eight tweets and nine followers, including Djohar. Among his tweets, “Ghuraba” indicated he lives in the West, and advocated readers to listen to an audio series by now-deceased radical Yemeni-American cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, saying that they will “gain an unbelievable amount of knowledge.”


On March 13, 2013, Djohar retweeted one of Ghuraba’s messages, “It’s our responsibility my brothers & sisters to ease the hardships of the oppressed and give us victory over kufr [disbelief] #islam #dua”


Regarding the second bombing suspect, a YouTube account by a user calling himself “muazseyfullah” gives his name as Tamerlan Tsarnaev and was opened in August 17, 2012. Tamerlan did not post any of his own videos, but created playlists and “liked” various videos.


Among the videos Tamerlan liked are two from radical Australian preacher Feiz Mohammed. In one of them, titled, “Harry Potter (In For A Surprise),” Mohammed criticized parents who allow their children to watch “Harry Potter” movies because of their depiction of wizards, magic, and indecency, when they should instead have their children stay away from such fantasy and believe in God and “tawhid,” meaning oneness in God. Tamerlan also created a playlist for Russian musical artist Timur Mucuraev, one of which promotes jihad.

In his “Islam” playlist, Tamerlan placed seven videos, one of which was deleted, three of which are the same, and another is by Feiz Mohammed. One of the videos, an English-language production called, “The Emergence of Prophecy: The Black Flags from Khorasan,” promotes the final prophecy of Islam coming from the Afghan-Pakistan region. On the top-tier jihadist forum Shumukh al-Islam, jihadists noted Tamerlan liking this video and believed it demonstrated his faith in Islam.


Another video in the “Islam” playlist is a 3 minute, 33 second, Russian-language piece titled, “Abdul Hamid al-Juhani | About Mishari al-Afasi and the Sufis,” claiming that Sufis in Chechnya kill Sunni Muslims and curse their scholars.

Tamerlan also created a playlist called “Favorite videos,” with five videos, one of which was deleted. One is an English-language lecture by a preacher named “Omar al-Banna” about who is God. Another video is from Kavkaz Center, a media outlet for Chechen fighters, about a visit by Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov to Saudi Arabia, and a third is about the “true essence” of Sufis in Chechnya.
