Tamerlan Tsarnaev: YouTube Account Had Posted Terrorism Videos

Since the manhunt began in Watertown, Massachussets, everyone has been searching the web for trails of the two suspects in the hopes to get more information about the motivation for the horrendous Boston Marathon bombing. What people have found out there it pretty disturbing. The Washington Post reports that an unknown person has discovered a YouTube Account under the name of Tamerlan Tsarnaev.


"The account, listed under the name Tamerlan Tsarnaev and identified as active since August 2012, includes two videos under the sub-category “terrorists.” It also includes seven videos filed under “Islam,” five under “favorite videos,” and three under “Timur Mucuraev,” a popular Chechen singer," says the Washington Post.

"Another video under the “Islam” heading shows young men carrying assault rifles through a forest as a narrator intones, “They demonize as terrorists anyone who supports Islam."

Mother Jones reports that Tamerlan Tsarnaev "appears to have posted a video extolling an extremist religious prophecy associated with Al-Qaeda to his YouTube page. [...] he posted religious videos, including a video of Feiz Mohammad, a fundamentalist Australian Muslim preacher who rails against the evils of Harry Potter. Among those videos is one dedicated to the prophecy of the Black Banners of Khurasan which is embraced by Islamic extremists — particularly Al Qaeda."
