Video: Tsarnaev in serious condition at … Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center

I’d add this to the “Irony” thread on the main page, but I think I’d prefer it in a separate GR post. Many commenters have already remarked on the particular irony of what appears to be an Islamist terrorist being held and treated at a Jewish hospital, but what’s less amusing is that this is the same hospital where a dozen of his victims are being treated, too:

Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was under heavy guard in serious condition Saturday morning — at the same hospital where a dozen victims of Monday’s bombing are still recovering.

Federal investigators were waiting to question Tsarnaev, 19, a naturalized U.S. citizen of Chechen origin, hoping to uncover a motive for horrendous attacks that bookended a week of terror. ….

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was being held at Beth Israel Deaconness Medical Center, where victims were also being treated after two blasts tore through crowds at the finish line of Monday’s race.

He was wounded in the firefight with cops but escaped, sparking a daylong lockdown of Boston and surrounding towns. A door-to-door manhunt had just ended when a Watertown resident noticed blood on the tarp covering a boat in his backyard, peeked under and found the suspect, a relative told TODAY.

I can’t imagine that this helps the families of those victims being treated at BIDMC, but then again, Tsarnaev and his brother created so many victims that there may not be a hospital without some being treated.  CNN notes that 57 are still hospitalized, including three in critical condition.

If you note by the photo of him lying on the grass, he is not covered in blood.

His brother may have been a bad influence on him but his brother went away for 6 months and Dirtbag lived on campus. So, there was plenty of opportunities to escape any influence he may have had. It could have been the exact opposite, i.e., the younger dirtbag influenced the older dirtbag.

Irony is gloating.

F this POS.

I hope that he lives just long enough to be cattle-prodded and water-boarded to tell us how many other savages are planning the same things that he planned for America.

I hope that his future is great pain, and then on to meet his Virginians.

F him.

OhEssYouCowboys on April 20, 2013 at 12:52 PM

According to some reports his bro was still alive
and being handcuffed when he ran over him and
killed him .
Try living with that hell .

Lucano on April 20, 2013 at 12:59 PM

I hope that this POS is on his last fingernail, before he whimpers the last of all that he knows about others who were planning the same thing for America.

F’ing coward.

Pain, and then on to hell.

F you.

Just a couple of Muslim guys booking rooms in the great Muslim whorehouse in the sky. The survivor will have to wait some but his place is assured. That is all the rational a Muslim male needs, especially the youts.

I wonder how the brothers lived with no apparent jobs or sources of income? Where did the older brother get money for his lifestyle, e.g., the Mercedes, nice fashionable clothing?
IMO, the money came from out of the country and the Monday bombing had been in the planning stages for a long time.
The bombs themselves are similar to ones used against US soldiers.
I hope to God he remaining member either dies in great pain, or is tried in a military court.

So he could be receiving the blood donated in the aftermath of the bombing?

29Victor on April 20, 2013 at 2:45 PM

Don’t worry Muslim terrorist. Beth Israel — “The House of Israel” will take good care of you, you’re safe there. Because they are better than you.

29Victor on April 20, 2013 at 2:45 PM

Yes, but it would be well-used. Keep him alive to pump him for information about their possible contacts and/or networks.

thebrokenrattle on April 20, 2013 at 5:40 PM

Inject him there.

What are the chances of a Jew being treated at a Muslim Hospital?

Grunt on April 20, 2013 at 6:27 PM

I hope they give him nothing but Jewish blood to save his life…

right2bright on April 20, 2013 at 6:46 PM

Serious condition…couldn’t happen to a nicer guy… I hear tell that the torture will be forcing him to listen to obama speeches over and over……Maybe gosnell could be called in to help with his treatment….just tell gosnell he survived an abortion…..

crosshugger on April 20, 2013 at 7:45 PM

Jeez, you could cut THAT little piece of irony with a limp piece of celery. LOL.

sage0925 on April 20, 2013 at 11:12 PM

The irony is so thick having Dzhokhar Tsarnaev taken to Beth Israel Deaconness Medical Center,

Grunt on April 20, 2013 at 6:27 PM

Between slim and none – and Slim just left town. Not unusual at all to find hospitals founded by those in the Christian or Jewish faiths.

Islam is only interested in death – thus there’s no need for charity nor healing.

As to this Islamic terrorist being treated at the same hospital as his victims, there are few places in the world you can get better treatment for trauma, and it is definitely in the American spirit to care not only for those whom you love, but also for your persecutors.

But I hope the morphine is getting sidetracked on the way to his room.

So who is this jihadi leader they were following? The guy looks like a giant Capuchin monkey, who should be playing an organ grinder.

I note the irony Ed mentioned, as well as an awareness of the charity & healthcare supported by Christian & Jewish faiths.

However, your above statement is hyperbolic, and actually not true.

There are quite a few Islamic hospitals & physicians, etc. (not aware of U.S. hospitals, but globally there are several), and Christian, Jewish, and Islamic physicians (among others) have contributed to the advancement of medicine.

You could, for example, google “Muhammad ibn Zakariya al-Razi” to get an idea of what I’m talking about.
