I have been posting on the unsolved triple murder of three young Jewish men (two devout) on September 11, 2011, the tenth anniversary of jihadi attack on American soil. When I first heard that the older jihad bomber, Tamerlan, knew him, it sickened me. The media called one of these Jewish victims the "bomber's only American friend."
I knew better. Beheading Jews on on September 11? It had to be devout Muslims. Islamic Jew-hatred -- it's in the quran. Tamerlan was a devout Muslim who opposed the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. He read websites and literature claiming that the CIA was behind the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, and that Jews controlled the world.
I tried to hire a private investigator to look into the case, but no one would touch it. It was white hot and active. What took the police so long? If they had solved this murder, there would have been no bombing.Under Islam, slaughtering Jews is the most "righteous" of all kuffar murder: "I killed my Jew!"
While Hamas-CAIR whines and moans about mythical "anti-Muslim" backlash or a photo of the World Trade Center left on the grounds of a mosque, let me be perfectly clear. This is a hate crime. Jihad is a hate crime.

Every new story omits the most crucial fact in the case as to motive. These boys were Jewish and that is why they were practically beheaded by these Muslim supremacists. Islamic Jew hatred - Jews the world over (and most assuredly Israel) know it well -- for 1,400 years.
ABC news: Law enforcement officials tell ABC News that some crime scene forensic evidence provided a match to the two Tsarnaev brothers. The officials also said records of cell phones used by the Tsarnaevs appears to put them in the area of the murders on that date. Several officials confirmed the new findings but declined to be identified because they are not authorized to comment on the ongoing investigation.
Graphic, Perplexing Triple Murder on a Dead-End Street ABC News
The savage 2011 murders unfolded on a quiet dead-end street on a balmy night.
Mess and his friends, Erik Weissman, 31, and Raphael Teken, 37, had ordered dinner from Gerry's Italian Kitchen at 8:54 p.m., but when a delivery woman arrived twenty minutes later there was no answer at the door and no one answered a call to Weissman's cell phone, from which the order was placed.
The bodies were discovered the next day. Former Middlesex District Attorney Gerry Leone said at the time that the murders were "graphic." Other investigators called it perplexing.
Roughly seven pounds of marijuana was dumped on the bodies and $5,000 in cash was left behind. Neighbors said they did not hear any signs of trouble – even with open windows – and there was no forced entry. In a 2011 interview, Leone said investigators theorized there had been more than one person at the scene of the murders based on "many factors," but no suspects were identified.
Then, Gerry's Italian Kitchen became a focal point again on April 24, nine days after the Marathon bombing, after investigators removed two Planet Aid charity donation bins from a parking lot it shares with a neighboring grocer. A driver had discovered discarded fireworks inside and law enforcement sources told ABC News the gunpowder had been removed from the cartridges.
It is unclear how the Tsarnaev brothers were associated with Gerry's Italian Kitchen, if at all, but looking back, multiple residents of Waltham and Watertown remember Tamerlan Tsarnaev delivering food to their homes and Tsarnaev family members have told reporters the brothers worked as pizza deliverymen. The eatery's management, however, steadfastly denied that either Tsarnaev brother worked there.
Scott Wood, a jiu jitsui trainer who befriended and trained Mess at a martial arts studio in Vermont, said he always believed whoever the killer or killers were, they got in Mess' home "under the guise of being a friend."
"Brendan was a tough, tough kid, a strong kid. It wouldn't have been easy to take him out like that," Wood told ABC News.
Wood and other friends met Tamerlan with Mess at a June 2011 fight event. Mess introduced Tamerlan as "Tam" but fighters also recognized him from his Golden Glove victories and called him "Champ." Tamerlan did not drink and was very quiet that night.
That was the last time Wood saw his friend alive.
Mounting evidence' links Tsarnaev brothers to earlier triple homicide RT, May 10, 2013
There is “mounting evidence” which suggests that Boston Marathon bombing suspects Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev were involved in an unsolved triple homicide in 2011, according to Massachusetts investigators.
Forensic evidence from the crime scene matched the brothers’ DNA, and cell phone records put them in the area of the murders on the date they occurred, officials told ABC News.
In the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings, authorities in Middlesex County began to investigate the link between Tamerlan and Brendan Mess - one of the three men killed in the triple homicide.
Mess and two other men were found in a Waltham, Massachusetts residence with their throats slit and their bodies covered with marijuana on September 11, 2011. Tamerlan and Mess were once roommates and practiced boxing and martial arts together.
The officials stressed that until more definitive DNA testing is complete, it is still too early to bring an indictment against the surviving suspect, Dzhokhar.
The cold case was made active again once the victims’ family and friends saw the Tsarnaev brothers’ photos in the media. It was then that they were reminded of Tamerlan’s behavior after the murders. He did not attend Mess’ funeral and disappeared from the martial arts gym where the men had sparred together.
A spokesperson for Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan declined to comment on the brothers’ possible involvement. Miriam Conrad, one of the attorneys representing Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, also declined to comment through her legal assistant.
Tamerlan, the deceased suspect, was buried in a Virginia cemetery, according to a death certificate released Friday. The document says that he was shot by police before being run over and dragged by a motor vehicle.
The cause of death was gunshot wounds of the torso and extremities and blunt trauma to the head and torso. He was pronounced dead at 1:35am on April 19.
The news comes after a week of protests outside the funeral home which was keeping his body. The funeral home struggled to find a cemetery to accept the suspect’s body.
He has been buried at Al-Barzakh Cemetery in Doswell, Virginia, imam of the Virginia Islamic Center, Ammar Amonette, told Reuters. He added that he disapproved of the decision to bury Tamerlan at the Muslim cemetery.
