DO STATE OFFICIALS BEAR ANY RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE MARATHON BOMBINGS?
by Sharon Rondeau
(Apr. 22, 2013) — Walid Shoebat has released a video depicting a timeline during which Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick (D) “embraced” radical Muslims from a Boston mosque, the land for which was sold to the Islamic community at a significant discount by Boston Mayor Thomas Menino (D).
In 2010, Patrick reportedly accepted a $50,000 check from a radical imam to initiate “sensitivity training” among the general population of “victimized” Muslims.
The mosque recently had a guest speaker who described the West’s War on Terror as a “war against Islam.”
The Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center closed in the immediate aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombings but has reopened. The mosque with which the cultural center is affiliated was attended by the two bombing suspects, although reportedly not regularly.
If election results are accurate, the people of Massachusetts consistently elect Democrats. All congressmen and both U.S. senators from the Commonwealth are Democrats, and the state legislature, called the General Court, is dominated by Democrats. The state senate contains four Republicans out of 40 seats. The House of Representatives is also heavily dominated by Democrats.
Gov. Patrick is a Democrat and good friend of Barack Hussein Obama, who has professed his “Muslim faith” in the past.
It has been reported that the elder of the two Boston Marathon suspects, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, became increasingly radicalized over the past nine months since returning from a six-month trip to Russia. He was reportedly ejected from worship services at the same Boston mosque which Menino and Patrick “embraced” on two occasions for angry outbursts directed at the imam.
Speaking with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos on April 21, Menino decried the terorrists’ desire to “those individuals who don’t care about anybody else…they just want to destroy our world, and we have to be very careful about that.”
On April 18, Patrick spoke at an “interfaith service” where he lauded the first responders and civilians who helped the injured and welcomed “our friend, our leader, our commander in chief, the President of the United States,” referring to Obama, who uses a fraudulent birth certificate and Selective Service registration card.
In his speech, Patrick said that “Massachusetts invented America. (applause) And America is not organized the way countries are usually organized. We are not organized around a common language or religion or even culture. We are organized around a handful of civic ideals. And we have defined those ideals, over time and through struggle, as equality, opportunity, freedom and fair play.”
The preamble to the Massachusetts Constitution reads:
The end of the institution, maintenance, and administration of government, is to secure the existence of the body politic, to protect it, and to furnish the individuals who compose it with the power of enjoying in safety and tranquility their natural rights, and the blessings of life: and whenever these great objects are not obtained, the people have a right to alter the government, and to take measures necessary for their safety, prosperity and happiness.
Three people were killed last Monday and more than 170 injured from bombs containing ball bearings and nails designed to cause maximum damage to civilians.
The Post & Email telephoned Gov. Patrick’s office to inquire about the $50,000 payment and whether or not he is aware of the imam’s command to his congregants to “Grab onto the shovel, grab onto the gun, and the sword, don’t be afraid to step out into this world and do your job” [last four words appear in video]. The staffer in the press office did not know the answer but asked us to send an email and promised to forward our questions to someone who could provide a response.
The email reads:
Good morning, I just spoke with someone in Gov. Patrick’s press office regarding the video linked here: http://shoebat.com/2013/04/21/massachusetts-governor-appears-to-have-some-explaining-to-do/
The video claims that Gov. Patrick accepted $50,000 from the imam for “sensitivity” education for public officials because Muslims were a “victimized and besieged minority.”
The video also states that several members of the cultural center, which is affiliated with the Islamic Center of Boston, have gone to prison for radical or illegal activity.
Is Gov. Patrick aware of the statement made by the imam instructing members to “Grab onto the shovel, grab onto the gun, and the sword, don’t be afraid to step out into this world and do your job”?
A Center board member stated that the elder bombing suspect attended the mosque on occasion, and the younger one went rarely or “only once:” http://www.latimes.com/news/nation/nationnow/la-na-nn-boston-bombing-suspect-radical-fbi-20130420,0,4341067.story
Should the Islamic Center of Boston be more closely scrutinized given the information in the video, or is the information inaccurate?
Thank you very much.

The Muslim Brotherhood is said to have infiltrated the Obama regime. Citizens from Saudi Arabia will begin receiving “trusted traveler” accommodations from the Department of Homeland Security next year.
As of press time, The Post & Email had received the following response from Patrick’s press office:
Patrick’s agenda for his second term as Massachusetts governor included “Getting People Back to Work,” “Reducing Health Care Costs,” “Improving Education,” and “Strengthening Public Safety.”
Patrick hails from the South Side of Chicago, where Obama was a community organizer. His biography states that he was “First elected in 2006 on a platform of hope and change.” He has carried out Obama’s agenda of “clean energy” and “earned Massachusetts the top spot in the national Race to the Top competition,” which nationalizes states’ education curricula as set forth by the Obama regime in the “Common Core” curriculum. The New York Times reported that “The common core standards, two years in the making and first released in draft form in March, are an effort to replace the current hodgepodge of state policies.”
The Post & Email will be reporting on the “Common Core” agenda more extensively in the coming weeks.
Patrick worked in the U.S. Department of Justice under President Bill Clinton on “prosecution of hate crimes, and the enforcement of employment discrimination, fair lending and disabilities rights laws.”
Menino states on his website that “I have always believed the purpose of government is to help improve people’s lives.”
Menino has been mayor of Boston for 20 years.
Messages left last week on the Facebook page for the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center include:
I am a long-time resident of Mission Hill and I just wanted to send a short note to [the ISBCC]. Yesterday’s events were bad enough, but I’m sure that I am not alone in being concerned that the Muslim community could become a target for backlash actions. I hope that will not be the case. However, if I can be of any help to your community, please let me know. I read about a group of women in Ohio who escorted local Muslim women shopping, or to their appts, after an incident, and if I can help anyone feel more comfortable that way, or another, please let me know.
Note from Interfaith Community Member:
I’m a staff member at Temple Ohabei Shalom, a Reform synagogue in Brookline. In light of Monday, and as our city is heavy with the tragedy, I wanted to send some love and solidarity towards your community.
As the media and the world so often misunderstands violence and fear, and uses it to create space for racism and Islamophobia, I worry it may be hard to be a Muslim in Boston this week.
If there is anything we can do, from one congregation to another, please let me know.
Kol tov, all best. Ariana
On Sunday, former Attorney General Michael Mukasey stated that the Boston Marathon explosions were “a jihadist act” but that “the Obama administration has disbanded the CIA interrogation group charged with investigating these plots, leaving America more vulnerable than ever to future threats.”
