Mother of Bomb Suspects Insists Sons are Innocent

BOSTON (AP) — The Russian-born mother of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects is drawing increased attention after U.S. officials say Russian authorities intercepted her phone calls, including one in which she vaguely discussed jihad with her son.

Zubeidat Tsarnaeva (zoo-bay-DAHT’ tsahr-NEYE’-eh-vuh) has undergone a transformation in recent years.

In photos of her as a younger woman, she wears a low-cut blouse and has her hair teased like a rock star. She went to beauty school.

But after becoming inspired by a family friend, she began wearing a hijab and praying daily. An acquaintance says she cited conspiracy theories about 9/11 being a plot against Muslims.

Tsarnaeva says she’s no terrorist, just someone who found a deeper spirituality.

She says she’s tired of “all this nonsense” being made up about her and her children.”

    I think this slimeball should visit Boston, right where the bombs went off, and all the victims and their families should be there to “greet” her.

    I would give $100 to get my hands on this depraved s***hole. How the H can your faith be deepened by the murders of innocent woman and children. Folks, this is not a real Muslim. Muslims preach peace and unity, not murder and mayhem. Blaming the whole faith for the actions of a few is like blaming all christians for McVeigh and Nichols bombings.
