Video: Bombers’ father tells son to surrender, threatens US

posted at 10:31 am on April 19, 2013 by Ed Morrissey

Earlier today, I said that we should cut the father of the two bombing suspects some slack for calling his younger son– now on the run from police — “a true angel.” On the other hand, the apple does not fall far from the tree, apparently:

The father of suspected Boston Marathon bomber called on his son today to give up peacefully, but warned the U.S. that if his son is killed “all hell will break loose.”

Anzor Tsarnaev spoke to ABC News from his home in the Russian city of Makhachkala as Boston police carried out an intense dragnet for his son Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. ….
The elder Tsarnaev insisted that his sons were innocent, but said he would appeal to his son to “surrender peacefully”

“Give up. Give up. You have a bright future ahead of you. Come home to Russia,” the dad said.

The father warned, however, “If they killed him, then all hell would break loose.”

Maybe he missed this earlier in the week, but hell broke loose on Monday. His sons may or may not have conducted the bombing, but they certainly seem to have engaged in a firefight with police. If Dzhokar isn’t inclined to surrender, that’s too bad.

Perhaps the Russian police might be interested in that threat, too.

Along with an immediate freeze on muslims entering this country.

None of them can really be trusted. At all.

hawkeye54 on April 19, 2013 at 11:14 AM

Besides, they have 57 islamic states to move to. I know that we have 57 states also – just by coincidence – but they still have more than enough room amongst their barbarous, belligerent, violent selves.

One of America’s greatest advantages for the first 200 years of our existence was that we basically had ZERO muslims. The idiots in government who have helped import these lowlifes into our country ought to be deported to one of the 57 islamic states along with them.

To be fair, W. isn’t the only person to spout that drivel.

BD57 on April 19, 2013 at 10:54 AM

I seriously doubt W believed that when he said it.

Ronnie on April 19, 2013 at 10:56 AM

Originally, W said that we would go on a crusade to locate and decimate the terrorists who perpetrated 9/11. His remarks have probably since been scrubbed, but he was roundly criticized for using the word crusade by the PC crowd. Apparently it was a “dog whistle” to the ROP.

I can remember a Left-leaning acquaintance citing W’s use of the word as “evidence” of how stupid W is.

Dr. Ben Carson is correct. Let’s stop playing the politically correct, Orwellian, Lackoff-inspired word games and rhetoric. The Associated Press had better revise its style book to reflect reality.

If he gives himself up and plea bargains for a 10 year sentence, can he have a faculty appointment at an ivy league school afterwards?

Luckily, I believe Harvard has remote faculty communications linkage availability, so he could easily be appointed a position and teach while concurrently serving his sentence, so as to immediately provide his valuable cultural and political insight with the mush filled minds of young Ivy League scholars. I’m certain, that glowing annual peer reviews will work to shorten any sentence his receives.

Yankees and Red Sox fans shared common ground after Monday’s Marathon bombings, but many liberals can’t — They know who their main enemies are, and in their minds, it’s not radical Islamic terrorists; it’s the vast majority of the rubes in flyover country.

It will only stop when they realize they lose more than they gain….they kill/maim/kidnap/murder one of ours, we raise the stakes exponentially, by taking out 10 of theirs, to begin with.

But that goes against the grain of our traditional ethics and morality.

However, it should be conclusive, to anyone perceptive, that Islam is, and has been since its inception perpetually at war with all other religions and non muslim nations, especially now the US, since we are still an influential world power, but now considered vulnerable and weak thanks to our current WH admin.

Could be the girlfriend changed her mind? What we might consider “rape” could very well be a cultural practice on his part, and possibly misunderstood by his girlfriend and the authorities. Who are they to deny him his cultural rights after all? I sense cultural insensitivity at work here to be deeply ashamed of. Perhaps realizing their error, the charges may have been dismissed, and I sure hope they apologized to him.

That last part is what I keep trying to get across to anyone I speak to about Islam’s war on the west and the free world. It truly does come down to those two choices, we either submit or they cease to exist. How much longer are people going to continue on the illogical notion that Islam is a religion of peace, that we can win over their “hearts and minds” and that we can continue to fight them hamstrung by political correctness?

First of all war has never been nor will it ever be politically correct. Secondly politics has no business in war unless you are not fully vested in winning such war. PC and politics when mixed with war is a sure path to failure, much like the “prevent” defense is to winning a football game.

Bottom line is you are exactly correct hawkeye, those in power in our government need to rise up and have the backbone to realize we cannot continue on this path when it comes to dealing with fascist Islam, we either throw in the towel and submit or we finally throw off the gloves, discard the PC BS and eliminate our enemies once and for all. Until then all we are doing is sacrificing more treasure, more blood and more innocent people and are accomplishing nothing!

Time to take the gloves off and eliminate fascist Islam NOW!!

Angels can go bad. The Bible says that Satan was also an angel.

The Jokar’s father is probably upset that American cops already killed his older son, but maybe he hasn’t been following them (or raising them) very well from Russia.

But if he wants “all hell to break loose” if his younger son is killed, who does Anzor Tsarnaev want to set hell loose in the United States? Is he suggesting that his sons had help in carrying out their bombing, and their accomplices will perpetrate other attacks if the Jokar is killed?

If Aznor Tsarnaev is living in Russia, he’d better watch his back. Komrade Vlad and his KGB buddies aren’t very fond of Chechnyan separatists, after what they did to some school kids there a few years ago, and he might not be very flexible with Aznor.
