Boston neuroscientists beg to study Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s brain in an effort to find a “biological basis” for carrying out Boston Marathon bombings
I have a better idea, geniuses, study the Quran, and you’ll find all the answers you need.
UK Daily Mail Dr Michael Craig Miller argued in the Boston Globe that Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s brain should be studied ‘as closely as our forensic experts have studied a few blocks along Boylston Street’ – the scene of the double blasts on April 15.
“So, when you clash with the unbelieving Infidels in battle, smite their necks until you overpower them, killing and wounding many of them. At length, when you have thoroughly subdued them, bind them firmly, making them captives. Thus are you commanded by Allah to continue carrying out Jihad against the unbelieving infidels until they submit to Islam.”
Miller works as a psychiatrist at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in the city, where Tamerlan died and his younger brother, Dzhohkar Tsarnaev, was treated after a stand-off with police.
The doctor claimed that we are all keen for more details about Tamerlan’s radicalization, and also the reported aggression and anger of the 26-year-old suspect.
“Your Lord inspired the angels with the message: ‘I will terrorize the unbelievers. Therefore smite them on their necks and every joint and incapacitate them. Strike off their heads and cut off each of their fingers and toes.” ”So wound their bodies and incapacitate them because they oppose Allah and His Apostle.”
Miller acknowledged that many people are looking for explanations as to why the two men allegedly plotted and executed the attacks that killed three people and injured more than 200.
He claimed in the Boston Globe that Tsarnaev’s brain is an ‘opportunity to examine important and interesting evidence that is there for the taking.’
“Jihad is holy fighting in Allah’s Cause with full force of numbers and weaponry. It is given the utmost importance in Islam and is one of its pillars. By Jihad Islam is established, Allah’s Word is made superior, and Islam is propagated. Jihad is an obligatory duty in Islam on every Muslim. He who tries to escape from this duty, or does not fulfill this duty, dies as a hypocrite.”
Dr Miller said that Dr Robert Cantu and Dr Robert Stern of Boston University’s Center for the Study of Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) have already expressed an interest in Tsarnaev’s brain.
CTE is a degenerative brain disease that was initially discovered in boxers. And Miller believes that Tamerlan’s boxing career could have caused this or another condition in the suspect.
“Believers, take not Jews and Christians for your friends.”
Dr Miller concedes that: ‘We are not likely to agree about the meaning of what is found in the brain of the suspected bomber.’
He quoted Doctors Cantu and Stern who point out that any evidence of a brain disease ‘would not necessarily have been the cause of Tsarnaev’s premeditated, violent behavior.’
“When the sacred forbidden months for fighting are past, fight and kill the disbelievers wherever you find them, take them captive, torture them, and lie in wait and ambush them using every stratagem of war.”
But Miller argued that in the aftermath of the bombings we have concentrated on ‘the aspects of politics and culture, or of social and family life, that may breed violent behavior.’
Dr Miller is asking to study Tamerlan’s brain as it ‘may teach us a small but important bit about the biology of violence.
