In the lobby of her Etobicoke apartment building, the aunt of the two Boston bombing suspects shouted one word over and over as reporters questioned her about her now-infamous nephews — one dead, the other leading police on a chase Friday that effectively shut down Boston.

“Evidence,” Maret Tsarnaeva said repeatedly, her voice high with emotion. “I can’t lightly accept this kind of accusations without supporting evidence. Forgive me, but I cannot.”

Tsarnaeva, is aunt to Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, a 19-year-old who survived an overnight shootout and police chase, and his older brother Tamerlan, 26, who was killed in the shootout. The family is ethnically Chechen.

Tsarnaeva had not spoken to the men in about five years, but said she “knew them as angels” and does not believe they were responsible for the attack.

“I don’t know them in a way that they could be capable of this,” she said. She would not rule out the possibility that the photos showing the brothers at the scene had been staged.

“I have to question everything. That’s my nature.”

Many members of the family moved to the U.S. in the early 2000s. Dzhokhar arrived in 2002 with his parents, then Tamerlan came in 2003, with the suspects’ two sisters.

Tsarnaeva, who says she had been a lawyer in Chechnya, claims to have helped with their refugee paperwork.

Tamerlan had married what he described as “a good Christian girl” in the U.S., and had a 3-year-old child, she said.

Tsarnaeva could not say what either nephew was doing recently, but it was confirmed Friday that Tamerlan had studied accounting at a community college but did not finish. Dzhokhar is a student at the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth, numerous media reported Friday.

As a Chechen, Tsarnaeva says she is accustomed to being set up by the police, and does not believe that the photos or the reports from the FBI are true.

People should not just “swallow” everything the government is saying, she said.

“Being a Chechen … you always have to watch your back,” she said.

On Friday, Tsarnaeva called a hotline to ask for more evidence linking her nephews to the attack.

“I said please, take that into account. Give evidence. Give at least evidence to family members. Because I will never accuse my relatives, my nephews, without having evidence.”

The entire family is Muslim, though Tsarnaeva did not know how devout they were. In the last two years, however, Tamerlan had started praying five times a day, she said.

She described both nephews as smart and athletic, saying Tamerlan had been an amateur boxer. He competed in the National Golden Gloves competition in 2009.

Tsarnaeva said the boys’ father, her brother Anzor, was soft-hearted. He had recently moved to Russia.

“I don’t know how he’s taking this,” she said.

Other members of the suspects’ family were speaking out Friday; Tsarnaeva’s younger brother, Ruslan Tsarni, told reporters in Maryland that he was ashamed of his nephews, and that they were “losers” who couldn’t “settle themselves” in the U.S., according to numerous reports.

Responding to her brother’s words, Tsarnaeva said Ruslan Tsarni had been expecting a lot of the men, especially Tamerlan, who had been his favourite.

To her surviving nephew, Tsarnaeva said: “I just hope this is not true, because I don’t have evidence.”

“If that is you, you take the blame…. You did it for some purpose. Explain it, take some responsibility. What else can I say?”

Boston Bomber Controlled by FBI

Zubeidat K. Tsarnaeva, the mother of Boston bombing suspects Dzhokar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, said Friday that her eldest son Tamerlan was under the control of the FBI.

“He was controlled by the FBI, like for three, five years,” she told Russia Today during an interview. ”They knew what my son was doing, they knew what actions and what sites on the Internet he was going [to], they used to come…and talk to me…they were telling me that he was really a serious leader and they were afraid of him.”

“How could this happen?…They were controlling every step of him, and they are telling today that this is a terrorist attack,” she added.

The FBI is notorious for recruiting and framing terrorist patsies. A report compiled by Mother Jones and the Investigative Reporting Program at the University of California-Berkley found that of the 158 prosecutions carried out on terrorism charges since 9/11, 49 defendants participated in plots that were arranged by FBI agent provocateurs.

“They’re creating crimes to solve crimes so they can claim a victory in the war on terror,” explained Martin Stolar, a lawyer who represented a suspect involved in a New York City bombing plot contrived by FBI agents.

According to Business Insider, the FBI will soon make public its relationship with Tsarnaeva. A spokesperson would not confirm or deny that the agency had any previous contact.

On Friday afternoon, however, Mother Jones reported the FBI has already admitted they interviewed Tsarnaev two years ago, according to CBS News. “The agency conducted the interview at the request of a so-far unnamed foreign government, CBS says, to see if the elder Tsarnaev had any extremist ties — but their search turned up none,” writes Hannah Levintova.

CHARIOTS IN RED SEA: ‘IRREFUTABLE EVIDENCE’

‘Horse and human remains strewn like battlefield wreckage’


Coral-encrusted object in Red Sea could be ancient Egyptian chariot wheelsCoral-encrusted object in Red Sea could be ancient Egyptian chariot wheels

SOURCE

A news report that stunned the world nine years ago about the discovery of possible ancient chariot wheels at the bottom of the Red Sea is suddenly gaining fresh attention with new video claiming “irrefutable evidence” that corroborates the find.

In June 2003, WND interviewed Bible enthusiasts who dove the waters of the Red Sea, alleging they found and photographed parts of chariots that may be the actual remains of the catastrophe brought upon the Egyptian army which pursued the Israelites, according to the Book of Exodus in the Bible.

“I am 99.9 percent sure I picked up a chariot wheel,” said Peter Elmer, a forklift mechanic from Keynsham, England, who made two diving trips to the Gulf of Aqaba branch of the sea. “It was covered in coral.”

“I believe I actually sat in an ancient chariot cab,” he told WND at the time, referring to his time exploring a submerged item in the underwater junkyard. “Without question, it is most definitely the remains of the Egyptian army.”

Now, Michael Rood, a Hebrew-roots teacher, has produced a video proffering evidence Elmer is absolutely correct.

His DVD, titled “The Red Sea Crossing,” documents the work of numerous researchers from the U.S. and overseas who have probed an underwater land bridge between a beachhead at Nuweiba, Egypt, and what is today Saudi Arabia.

“What they found strewn across the bottom of the reed sea has shaken the religious and scientific community,” says Rood. “Cameras mounted on remote-controlled submarines revealed coral-encrusted chariot parts, horse and human remains strewn like battlefield wreckage on the bottom of the reed sea.”

He uses the term “reed sea” instead of Red Sea, as that’s the literal translation of the words “yam suph” in Holy Scripture, referring to the body of water God miraculously opened for the ancient Israelites to cross on dry land, before drowning the Egyptians in hot pursuit.

“Even a novice can readily see that these are not natural coral formations,” Rood said, showing a variety of circular shapes he insists are chariot wheels, some with axles still intact.

He gave special attention to a single gold-veneered, four-spoked chariot wheel that was photographed and buried in place with a marker buoy nearby.

“Because coral does not attach to gold or silver, this priceless specimen remains untarnished by time,” he said, calling it “strong evidence that this is actually one of the two chariot wheels that the pharaoh rode to his death.”

Rood also explained giant pillars have been found on both sides of the crossing to mark the event. One was discovered eroded on the Egyptian shore by the late American archaeologist Ron Wyatt. Later, another was located on the Arabian side with “the legible remains of ancient paleo-Hebrew inscriptions.”

He says the words for pharaoh, death, Egypt, King Solomon and the sacred name of God, YHWH, are all present on the second pillar.

“King Solomon, the wisest man who ever lived, knew exactly where the children of Israel made their escape just 500 years before, and so he established pillars to memorialize the yam suph crossing,” said Rood.

He points out the depth of water would make it impossible for a crossing to have taken place anywhere with the exception of the shallow land bridge at Nuweiba.

“If the water were to be removed, it would still be impossible to cross this chasm which is as deep and wide as the Grand Canyon in Arizona,” Rood said.

“But,” he added, “at the beach where Israel camped, an underwater land bridge gently slopes at a 6-degree angle, levels out at about 900 feet, and then gradually rises to meet the western shore of Midian.”

For hundreds of years, many have been under the impression that Mount Sinai, the place at which Moses received the Ten Commandments from God, was located on the Sinai peninsula of Egypt. It was Helena, the mother of 4th century Roman emperor Constantine, who made the declaration of its position when she established two churches there.

But if Rood and the other researchers are correct, the real Mount Sinai is actually in Arabia on the eastern side of the Gulf of Aqaba. The New Testament apostle Paul even refers to “Mount Sinai in Arabia” in Galatians 4:25.

“What is so difficult about determining the body of water that Moshe (Moses) crossed?” asks Rood.

“The Bible gives us just one choice, and this is it! I know that Constantine would have you dismembered for implying that his mother picked out the wrong site for Mount Sinai. But Constantine is dead! And so are the traditions that have enslaved our minds to such idiocy that we cannot even read the plain text of the Bible and think for ourselves.”

A well-known Swedish scientist who is among the Red Sea researchers believes the waters of Aqaba were indeed split supernaturally.

Lennart Moller of the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm told WND there are no natural, scientific explanations for the parting miracle described in Scripture.

“The wind did not separate the water,” he said. “No person could be in that wind and survive. … If God has created all the Earth, it’s no problem for Him to separate the water for a while.”

Rood says for many people, finding the genuine crossing site is bad news because, “Blissful ignorance has died, and you recognize that the Creator has revealed himself through His people and His prophets. But this is good news to those who truly believe in the God of Israel and obey His commandments.

“Here on the bottom of the [reed sea] rests the evidence that the Creator has acted on behalf of His people in the past, proof that you can count on His promise that in the last days, He will perform a miracle that will make the parting of the reed sea pale by comparison.”
