Muslims Celebrate the Bombing in Boston and the Death of Americans
Two bombs exploded in Boston during a marathon killing at least three people and insuring over 130, at least a dozen of them are under intense care, struggling for their lives. No one has claimed responsibility for. Obviously Muslims can’t be suspected as they never do such things, but strangely some Muslims around the world are celebrating for the carnage.
AMMAN, Jordan (AP) — The head of an extremist Jordanian Muslim Salafi group said early Tuesday that he was “happy to see the horror in America” after the explosions in Boston.
“Let the Americans feel the pain we endured by their armies occupying Iraq and Afghanistan and killing our people there,” he said early Tuesday.
Al-Chalabi served seven years in prison for his part in the foiled attack. His group is outlawed in Jordan.
A Mideast counterterrorism official based in Jordan said the blasts “carry the hallmark of an organized terrorist group, like al-Qaida.” He did not give actual evidence linking al-Qaida to the bombing.
“From the little information available, one can say it was a well-coordinated, well-targeted and near-simultaneous attack,” he said. “Luckily, the amount of explosives used is small, judging from the casualty figure and explosion area.”
A Jordanian security official said security was beefed up around the U.S. Embassy in Amman after the bombing in Boston.
“As the unfortunate news unfolded, we immediately stationed more police patrols around the embassy,” he said. He declined to disclose any details, citing the sensitive nature of the information.
Both officials insisted on anonymity, as they were not authorized to brief reporters on security matters.
