So, are the two bombing “suspects” actually Islamic terrorists?
They hail from Chechnya, an Islamic nation that has recently sent fighters to join the Syrian wars. This nation is not far displaced from war and the two bombing suspects, Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, 19 and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, are old enough to have seen much of it. During the 1990s there were two Chechen wars for independence against Russia, but since then there has been plenty of Islamic civil unrest.
Chechnya is a majority Sufi Islamic nation, but ultra-conservative Wahhabism has been gaining strength in recent years and sending a wave of violence and fear throughout Chechnya. Wahhabis believe in the literal interpretation of the Qur’an. The majority Wahhabi state of Saudi Arabia produced the 9/11 terrorists and Osama Bin Ladin. The Saudi government is also funding Wahhabi schools in the United States. This has been a concern of those following the issue, mainly because textbooks from the schools teach violent and racist Islamic doctrine.
Chechnya has been in a near constant state of strife for decades. The fact that two young Chechens could be influenced into fighting for jihad is not fair fetched, it’s the most likely situation. Whether they were a part of the increasing Chechen Wahhabi problem or whether they were radicalized by the large influx of Islamic Afghan war veterans into Chechnya, there is no way they were anything but jihadists.
