Tsarnaev's mother: US will burn 'in the flames of an eternal and terrifying fire'

The mother of convicted terrorist Dzhokhar Tsarnaev had some choice words on social media sites for the US following the imposition of the death penalty on her son for his role in the Boston bombings 2 years ago.

“They think that they are killing us and they celebrate this, but we are the ones who will rejoice when Allah grants us the chance to behold them in the flames of an eternal and terrifying fire, an otherworldly flame,” Zubeidat Tsarnaeva wrote Sunday in a WhatsApp message to Zarina Kasenova, a friend and supporter.

Zubeidat Tsarnaeva sent several distraught messages this weekend to loved ones after her 21-year-old son received the death penalty for his role in the Boston Marathon bombings in 2013, her friend said.

Vocativ discovered Zubeidat Tsarnaeva’s messages, written in Russian, via VKontakte, the Russian social media site, where she and other anti-American supporters of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev have raised money for his defense and rallied around each other. When Vocativ contacted the friend, Kasenova, she said she and other loved ones had doubts about the case. “You should understand that this group is not a shrine to Dzhokhar, it’s a group with doubts about the case,” she wrote via VKontakte messaging. “While there are still doubts, there will be support. I haven’t seen 100% proof of his guilt, so I’m here.”

[...]

The VKontakte group, Support Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, is run by another family friend named Timur Raduyev. Raduyev, who says he is in close touch with the Tsarnaev family, wrote on the group Saturday that Zubeidat told him Dzhokhar’s lawyers wanted to appeal against the death penalty. “I’m broken – Zubeidat and Anzor, be strong, my family,” he posted to his group, to which hundreds of close supporters in Russia and Chechnya responded with crying emojis and profound sadness. Anzor is Dzhokhar’s father.

Zubeidat Tsarnaeva declined to comment via WhatsApp when Vocativ reached out to her. Her current WhatsApp profile icon is a picture of an injured Winnie the Pooh bear with an overlaid quote from a 2012 tweet by Dzhokhar: “Sometimes you gotta fight for the things you love most.”

After her son’s conviction in April, Zubeidat used the social forum to call her son “the best of the best.” In an interview with Vocativ in April via WhatsApp, she said the United States “WILL PAY FOR MY SONS AND THE SONS OF ISLAM, PERMANENTLY!!!

The least she can do is show a little gratitude to US taxpayers for footing the bill for the Tsarnaev family to fly to Boston for the penalty phase of the trial. Otherwise, she seems to have taught her son well.

Her apologists might point to her statements and say that they are the rantings of a distraught mother and she really doesn't mean she wishes the US to be destroyed. She is no doubt distraught, but why should we do anything except take her at her word that she wants the US destroyed? 

She also left another statement on social media:

Allah is the greatest. His decisions are the greatest. Inshaallah to him we belong and to him we will return. They think that they are killing us and they celebrate this, but we are the ones who will rejoice when Allah grants us the chance to behold them in the flames of an eternal and terrifying fire, an otherworldly flame, inshaallah

I love my sons. with this love I will stand in front of Allah. Thank you dear and may Allah be happy with you.

Zubeidat shows no remorse for her son's actions and no pity for his victims. Why should we give her any comfort or pity at all?
