I have been reading about the murdered Chechen Tamerlan Tsarnaev and his younger detained brother Dzhokhar, his partner in the bloody Boston twin bombings last Monday. I think what I have read so far is equal to more than a huge book. But I haven’t read anything stating that Tamerlan held a stable job to support himself, his wife and his younger daughter, Zahra, who is almost three years old.
He enrolled in a graduate institute where he later met his wife, who comes from a wealthy background. She finished her studies and achieved her dream in 2007 and graduated. She stayed with him, married him, converted to Islam and wore the veil, exactly like he wanted her to do. However, he withdrew from the graduate institute as he did not bear staying there for more than two years. He did not finish his education and he left defeated.
He is a model of those who betrayed a country that provided job opportunities. And instead of working hard to show gratitude, they terrorized and treacherously killed people thinking that paradise has only one bridge paved with innocent corpses.Kamal Kobeissi
On his YouTube channel, I found other users' religiously inciting videos. They included interpretations of Islam. But the videos confirmed that he deviated away from an understanding of the Qur'an, including the verse: "And we have not sent you except as a mercy for mankind."
