Jihadi Twitter Celebrates And Criticizes Tsarnaev Verdict

Online supporters of Islamic terrorist organizations responded vehemently to Friday’s announcement of a death penalty verdict against Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

Tsarnaev and his brother Tamerlan used plans for pressure cooker bombs published in Inspire, the online English-language magazine circulated by al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula. Despite the ongoing rivalry between al-Qaida and Islamic State, adherents of several groups tweeted their solidarity within minutes of the verdict’s announcement.

A number of Twitter users prayed that Tsarnaev would be accepted by God as a “shaheed,” the Arabic word for “martyr.”

This brother is right.. may Allah accept Tsarnev as shaheed, ameen https://t.co/bGZB2r3atR — Oum ☆ (@casaouia_oum) May 15, 2015

 

Others pointed out that in their interpretation of Islam, Tsarnaev had nothing to fear, mocking the U.S. Department of Justice for its assumption that death is a punishment.

If only the u.s government understood that Tsarnaev prefers the death penalty and is eager to meet his Lord.

Tsarnaev will be martyred in sha Allah Shaheed never dies!! — Salahudin AlHollandi (@AboeGhaza) May 15, 2015

 

Writing in Arabic, one user wrote that “the tyrant court of Boston, God curse them, has ruled the death penalty for our brother Dzhokhar Tsarnaev… O God, be with him — God his patience, God his reliance.”

حكمت محكمة بوستون الطاغوت -لعنهم الله- على أخينا #جوهر_تسارناييف بالإعدام اللهم كن معه اللهم صبره اللهم ثبته

And several users compared Tsarnaev’s execution for killing innocents in Boston to the lack of accountability for perceived American war crimes in the Muslim world, including the drone strike that killed 16-year-old U.S. citizen Abdulrahman al-Awlaki.

Yes #America has killed countless innocents all over the world so adding one more to the list is nothing for them #DzokharTsarnaev — ::: Ūмм Снесн ::: (@_Umm_Rebel) May 15, 2015

 

What happened when #America killed this teenager and his friend with a drone? Nothing. pic.twitter.com/rok98izR4Y

#StevenDale raped a 14 year old Iraqi and killed her family afterwards. He was not sentenced to death! #Tsarnaev pic.twitter.com/O5AMjgv5zX — Black Intifada (@Akhenaten15) May 15, 2015

 

Some American critics of the death penalty against Tsarnaev have said that killing him would only glorify him as a martyr for the jihadi cause.
