Tsarnaev brothers: Where is their religious teacher?
So the mother of the Tsarnaev brothers were probably also complicit but who was the religious teacher who had influenced them? The FBI claimed to have identified him. His moniker is Misha, a Rasputin like character. ST ought to have made that a prominent story. The war against the militant and perverted religion at the expense of Islam must be brought back to its purveyors: the false teachers.
Those teachers who can be reasoned, we reason. Those who can't we must treat them as enemy and effectively blunt their capacities radicalize others. The bigger and deeper contest we have to let leaders like Pope Francis show the way.
Compared to the ST, the UK Telegraph today has a much better article.
