Tsarnaev

Comprehending the Incomprehensible


It is now apparent that not only did Boston Marathon bombers Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev abuse the United States’ asylum system, but that untold others hailing from countries with large populations of America-haters (many of them Muslims) have probably been doing likewise. The United States’ compassion for seekers of asylum from oppressive regimes has long been of benefit to the politically oppressed around the world.

Now this, as well as other doorways of opportunity within our immigration and naturalization bureaucracy are routinely being exploited in order to gain access to Americans with the intention of doing us harm.

obama_islam1The granting of asylum is one of the manners by which the federal government is allowing terrorist cells to develop here, according to Iowa Rep. Steve King, a member of the House Judiciary Committee. This week, my colleague Aaron Klein reported that Ilyas Akhmadov, a high-ranking Chechen separatist leader accused of terrorism by Russia, was granted political asylum in the U.S. and lived for a period of time in – drum roll – Boston.

And what of the young Saudi national, Abdul Rahman Ali Al-Harbi, who was injured in the Marathon bombing, and about whom so much controversy and government obfuscation ensued? His whereabouts remain unknown. Al-Harbi has known the Obamas since 2009, when he entered the US; White House visitor logs have confirmed this. Although there have been several rumors representing his background, none have been substantiated. There’s no doubt that the White House is attempting to make this question go the way of Fast and Furious and the Justice Department’s non-prosecution of certain ethnic minorities controversy.

‘My country, always wrong’

I find it amazing what manages to pass for “white” in America when the political left wants it to. During the manhunt for the Boston Marathon bombers last week, the press made it painfully evident that they desperately hoped the perpetrators would wind up being conservative tea-party Christian Republicans, but at least white.

muslim-protest“Please don’t be a Muslim” even graced the title of one Washington Post article – but we’ll address that brand of insanity in a bit.

When the suspects were finally identified as Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the press immediately pronounced them “white.” A collective “A-HA!” of vindication rose on the airwaves and in cyberspace, as though all of America had somehow been certain that “brown people did it.”

Although the brothers Tsarnaev are technically “Caucasian” in the sense that their home country, Chechnya, lies in the North Caucasus mountains of Russia, they aren’t what has been considered “white” in the Western world for centuries. Generally speaking, people who fall into that category are those descended from forebears in Northern and Western Europe, Scandinavia and the British Isles, inasmuch as Southern Europeans, some Eastern Europeans, Eurasians and even the Irish have historically suffered discrimination under the former in the West.

Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev are Eurasian. Well, Tamerlan was Eurasian; his surviving brother Dzhokhar remains so.
