Muslim extremists throughout the Arab world celebrated the bombings at Monday’s Boston Marathon.
Hamas, Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad and others reportedly danced and cheered in the streets of Gaza, even passing out sweets upon learning of the death and destruction in Boston, the Israeli News Agency said.
The head of a major Jordanian Muslim extremist group said he was “happy to see the horror in America,” The Associated Press reported Tuesday.
The al-Qaida linked, Somali terrorist group Al-Shabaab celebrated in its own way, by gloating on Twitter at 2:00 am Tuesday morning, PJ Media reported:
After the announcement of the bloodshed in Boston, Shumukh al-Islam forum posted a well-known rallying cry from former al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden.
“Urgent // Casualties and Injuries in an Explosion that Shook the US State of Boston, and a State of Panic and Chaos Spreads Across America in General,” said the first scrolling message.
That was followed by this bin Ladin quote: “I swear by Allah the Great, who raised the sky without pillars, that America and those who live in America will not dream of security until we live it as a reality in Palestine and until all the disbelieving armies are expelled from the land of Muhammad, Allah’s peace and prayer be upon him.”
Below are some comments made on the popular jihadist forum, known to be a “primary source for official messages from al-Qaeda,” Site Intel Group reported.
[Ibn Talha al-Muhajir]
Allah is Great, praise be to Allah. America is ruined. Allah is Great, Allah is Great, Allah is Great.
Allah is Great!!! O Allah, put fear in their hearts and make them die from fear and horror.
[Muhammad Abu Bakr]
Allah is Great, Allah is Great, Allah is Great Two explosions were heard in Boston in America!! Six people were injured!!
Yes, they are really explosions, days ago. Almost a week ago, I read news that one of the brothers will carry out bombings in America, and some of the brothers criticized him for giving information like that on the jihadi forums. Allah knows best.
[al-Faqir Ila Allah]
Allah is Great, Allah is Great…Panic and deployment of anti-terror forces… in Boston… after two explosions?! #America!!
We ask Allah that this is the start before the storm. May Allah give you the glad tiding of Paradise for this joyous news.
By Allah, even if no one is killed in these explosions, the fear that entered the hearts of the millions of Americans who watched the marathon live on television is enough.
Allah knows best, it is a perfectly planned series of explosions targeting certain cities in America! It might be the start of big coming operations, Allah permitting..I ask Allah that Qaedat al-Jihad is the one responsible…
Every drop of American blood that falls is part of the retaliation for the tortured Muslims all over the world…We ask the Almighty to make these explosions one of them.
