Feiz Mohammad: Radical Muslim Preacher Who Inspired Boston Marathon Bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev


By Gareth Platt

April 19, 2013
Feiz Mohammad, the radical preacher cited by dead Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev,
 is a former boxer who blames women for being raped
 and called for a prominent Dutch politician to be beheaded.
Widely known as ‘Sheikh Feiz’, the preacher was born in Australia circa 1970-1 but fled to Lebanon, the homeland of his parents, eight years ago after becoming one of the world’s most controversial Islamic lecturers.
He has been investigated by Australian police for inciting violence and terrorism, and was even captured on a British TV documentary encouraging children to become martyrs for Islam six years ago.
Feiz has been described by some as Australia’s most dangerous sheikh,
 because of the number of connections he holds to known terrorists.
Feiz’s parents emigrated from Lebanon to Sydney before he was born, and he has described his family as “so-called” Muslim – hinting strongly that he disapproves of their level of commitment.
The future preacher competed as a boxer, bodybuilder and horse trainer in his teens, and apparently used drugs before rediscovering his faith and moving to Saudi Arabia, where he studied Islamic law.
Upon his return to Sydney, Feiz founded the Global Islamic Youth Centre in the suburb of Liverpool, reaching a community of more than 4,000 Muslims, and began to make the radical sermons which have earned international notoriety.
In 2007, a Channel 4 documentary entitled Undercover Mosque broadcast footage of Feiz urging children to become “soldiers defending Islam”, adding “there is nothing more beloved to me than wanting to die as a Muhajid.”
In 2010 he described Dutch politician Gert Wilders,
 an open opponent of Islam, as “evil filth” adding:
  “Anyone who mocks our learning, laughs at the Islam [sic] and degrades it must enter death – decapitate him, cut off his head.”

    The view from Russia
    “USA loses the struggle against terrorism”
    Sergei Vasilenkov



    Is the Boston tragedy a continuation of September 11th? The explosions that rocked Boston on April 15th provide some basis for an affirmative answer to this question. The U.S. security is under serious threat, and the U.S. government does not know where to look for its trail: among the “offended” marathon participants, in the camp of “patriotic” groups, or “Al-Qaeda”?

    The U.S. authorities are forced to admit that they do not know the organizers of the terrorist act, and finding them will not be easy. Barack Obama defined the explosion as terrorism, thus removing other possible versions. On April 16th, law enforcement officials said that the bombs that exploded in Boston were made out of common pressure cookers stuffed with nails, ball bearings and gunpowder.

    Egg timers were used as bomb detonators. The authoritative source of U.S. security officials said that this pattern was not consistent with al-Qaeda. But patterns may change over time, especially given the strengthening of control measures over the U.S. citizens, tourists, migrants and persons illegally residing in the country. In addition, it cannot be ruled out that the “primitive bombs” were made specifically in order to keep the investigation of terrorist attacks on the wrong track.

    He was “wicked intense,” she described, and at times forceful with women.

    A suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing
    who was shot dead
    after a police standoff on Friday
    had an “air of power”
    and an intensity that could frighten,
    his former friend told WNYC.

    She described him as the clear leader
    of his group of friends,
    with “an air of power.
    She said he had a thick Russian accent,
    but was comfortable speaking English.

    Reviewing Chechyan History for Clues About Suspects’ Motives
    ‎Today, ‎April ‎19, ‎2013, ‏‎5 hours ago
    Early reports about the profiles of the two suspects sought in the Boston Marathon bombings case indicate their family lived for a time in the city of Makhachkala, the capital of the Dagestan region, near Chechnya, before moving to the United States. The Tsarnaev family reportedly left Dagestan for the United States in 2002 after living there for about a year.

    Stephen Dalziel, former Russian analyst for the BBC
    “The big question here is the motivation.
    There’s no history of Chechyan insurgents
    or Chechyan nationals attacking foreigners on foreign grounds,”
    Aslan Doukaev, North Caucasus Service Director
    for Radio Free Europe said.
    “I am to be honest a little baffled,” Doukaev added,
    noting that there is no historical precedent
    for an attack like this

    9 questions about Chechnya
    and Dagestan
    you were too embarrassed to ask

    by Max Fisher on April 19, 2013

    Although information is still emerging about their exact connections to the Russian regions of Chechnya and Dagestan, early reporting suggests that Boston marathon bombing suspects Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and Tamerlan Tsarnaev may be of Chechen origin and may have grown up partially in neighboring Dagestan, The Washington Post reports. The regions are sometimes described as part of the “Caucasus region,” so named for the Caucasus mountains.

    You might naturally be wondering about Chechnya and Dagestan, which will no doubt be referenced frequently in coverage of the Tsarnaev brothers. This post is a simple, entry-level explainer on these Russian regions and their years of conflict and trauma, written to give anyone who’s interested a basic understanding.

    ‘They were set up, FBI followed them for years’- Tsarnaevs’ mother to RT

    Russian Times
    April 19

    With the 24-hour manhunt for the second suspect of the Boston bombing closed, RT remembers its conversation with the parents of the Tsarnaev brothers, who claimed all along their children were set up.

    Zubeidat Tsarnaeva maintains her younger son is innocent and like so many of the brothers’ acquaintances, claims they were good, courteous kids and model students – especially the younger 19-year-old Dzhokhar. A US citizen who is presently in the Russian Republic of Dagestan, she revealed to RT some suspicions of her own.

    Grief-stricken at the latest developments in the case, Zubeidat expressed her dismay at the allegations, recounting Dzhokhar’s life in the US and talking of his status among his peers and friends: he was an honors student, loved by many of his friends and teachers. And his older brother Tamerlan was a star athlete and student, whose ambition was to one day appear on the US Olympic wrestling team.

    “They used to come [to our] home, they used to talk to me…they were telling me that he [the older, 26-y/o Tamerlan] was really an extremist leader and that they were afraid of him. They told me whatever information he is getting, he gets from these extremist sites… they were controlling him, they were controlling his every step…and now they say that this is a terrorist act! Never ever is this true, my sons are innocent!”

    When asked if maybe she didn’t know about some of her sons’ more secret aspirations and dark secrets, she said “That’s impossible. My sons would never keep a secret.”

    …..”constant FBI surveillance”….”over the years”

    Tsarnaev Brothers

    But her biggest suspicion surrounding
    the case was the constant FBI surveillance
    she said her family was subjected to over the years.
    She is surprised that having been so stringent
    with the entire family,
    the FBI had no idea the sons were
    supposedly planning a terrorist act.

    ….. “the younger suspect then continued to drive
    directly over his brother
    and dragging him through the street.
    That’s how the older suspect died”……
    CNN video with Wolf.

    The chief also says that “there was a major explosion in the middle of the gun fight” between officers and the suspects, Thursday night,
    when a pressure cooker bomb,
    like the ones used in the Boston Marathon bombings,
    went off in the residential area.

      G, excellent.
      A usual, you are onto it.
      Today I was thinking of all of the “faciliited” plots
      by the intelligence community,
      and thus arrests of the dworks
      to “stop” them.
      do “they”
      have the moxie
      when dealing
      with the “Politically Correct” world,
      to actually stop real terrorists
      like “Sheik Feiz” and his ops?
      The photos of the guy in the wheelchair
      with just bloody femurs sticking out
      for legs
      after the bombing attack,
      is haunting.
      It has gotten to me.
      And others.
      I am pissed.
      Time to act.

      The failures of the last week were shocking.
      I am fed up.
      Can Uncle Sam, aka, America,
      actually “win” this battle against evil
      in the manner and methods
      we are currently using?

    Dunno Hood, I just hope this wasn’t an FBI op that got out ahead of itself.
