    Family and Funeral Home may Demand Taxpayers may shell out for Muslim Funeral with Special Soaps to include “No Animal Fat” Soap for Facials” per Muslim washings for ethnic cultural burial.

    In spite of some of Tamerlan’s family members loathing of the US, such as his mother who made money under the table by performing “Facial Washings”, their greed has priority over the insults
    they’ve made against the US.

    It is not as though the body of mass bomber Tamerlan needs to be laid in a “human sized” “pressure cooker” to make the travel to his families country. Only cloth and no added weight, unless they would at least rent a cargo plane to drop his body at sea.

    90.0-WBUR: Worcester Funeral Home Known For Taking Unwanted Bodies Has Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s

    By Sacha Pfeiffer and Lynn Jolicoeur May 3, 2013

    BOSTON —

    Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s body is now at a funeral home in Worcester. It was sent there Friday morning from a funeral parlor in North Attleborough, where a small protest broke out when the body arrived there Thursday night.

    Sacha Pfeiffer: This Worcester funeral home, Graham Putnam & Mahoney, has a specialty of sorts in these types of cases or these types of bodies?

    Linda Bock: Yes. This is a funeral home that’s been in the city, in a very poor section of the city, for about 150 years, and the funeral director, Peter Stefan, has been a funeral director about 35 years….. I know he’s buried murderers and he’s been involved in other kinds of high-profile funeral arrangements.

    And I guess he told me [Friday] morning that he initially thought he was going to handle the arrangements, but there was some confusion among family members. And that’s how the body was in North Attleborough [Thursday].

    Does he worry at all about inviting controversy since this is an exceptionally controversial case, even if he’s used to these kinds of situations?

    Not one bit. He said, “Not one bit,” because I said, “Aren’t you worried about protesters or aren’t you going to ask for police presence out here?” And he said he’s very calm, he’s very — you know, feels that he wouldn’t do this unless he felt it was safe for the neighborhood and everything.

    And he said because Worcester really is like a little town feel and it’s a very neighborhood community feeling there, he feels that people will be respectful.

    Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s family reportedly wants a traditional Muslim funeral. Is this funeral home equipped to do that?

    Yes. Yes he is. And he said they even have the special soaps, the soaps with no animal fats and they’ve done quite a few of these Muslim burials. He knew all the traditions and everything, although in a traditional Muslim burial, there’s usually a mosque involved. In this case, because of the circumstances, Peter said that he does not think the family, you know — it will not probably happen in a mosque. But the funeral home will probably do the washing of the body.

    Is that because they think they can’t find a mosque willing to do it?

    Right. There are not very many cemeteries in the state that have either a Muslim section or are Muslim cemeteries. So he has tried those first, and he’s tried others. So far, he told me, he’s striking out with all of them.


    CNN: Second autopsy awaits Boston bombing suspect

    By Ben Brumfield & Melissa Gray – May 4 2013

    A funeral home now has the remains and a quest is underway to find him a resting place in Massachusetts.

    His death certificate has yet to be filed with the Boston city clerk, and there is no burial plot yet, according to the funeral home holding the remains.

    If no grave site is found after the second autopsy, Peter Stefan, the owner of the funeral home, plans to ask the government to find a grave.

    Three cemeteries that Stefan contacted said they feared reprisals, but the funeral home owner said you can’t pick and choose when it comes to a burial.

    Tsarnaev’s body remained unclaimed until Thursday, when an uncle, who had previously publicly condemned his alleged attacks, had a funeral parlor pick up the body.

    Their parents in Dagestan have said they will not fly his body back to Russia for burial, spokeswoman Heda Saratova said.

    CNN affiliate WCVB reported that the hearse that picked up Tsarnaev’s body ferried it to a funeral home 30 miles away from Boston, near the Rhode Island state line.

    Residents of North Attleboro, Massachusetts, took to the streets to boo Tsarnaev, when they heard about the presence of the corpse in their town, The Sun Chronicle reported.

    Others took to social media to vent anger at the funeral home for accepting the body. It was later transported to Stefan’s funeral home, Graham Putnam & Mahoney Funeral Parlors in Worcester.

    Investigators found explosives residue in the apartment that the elder Tsarnaev shared with his wife and young daughter, a source briefed on the investigation said Friday.

    It has turned up in at least three places at the small apartment in Cambridge, Massachusetts, the source said: the kitchen table, the kitchen sink and the bathtub.

      It’s just strange that NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS, Islam is to be respected with the utmost sincerity. Meanwhile, they bomb our people, drag and burn our soldiers through the street, behead captives and dump their bodies in the gutter.

      So while this and other DIRTBAGS continue to humiliate and splatter the blood of innocents everywhere, their family and the remains of the deceased are to be hallowed treasure. I just don’t get it.

      I also thought it was strange that Bin Laden was “buried at sea” which is not in accordance with Muslim burial procedures. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islamic_funeral
      It seems likely this never happened. “Oh, oh! Another conspiracy theorist!” –yeah, well, who is more trustworthy? The government that implements a covert gun running operation to whip-up anti-gun sentiments on the graves of victims, or a conspiracy theory that hurts NO ONE? The government has proven it is not worthy of any benefit of the doubt. See: JFK Secret Service WAIVED OFF: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=01M8LFTAVQI

      UPDATE: Muslim mob in Libya desecrates British cemetary.

      Yes, we must give all the proper burial rights to muslims, and respect to their religion, but look how they treat non-muslims.

    Be done with it

    • captstubby says:

      and then the ashes to be flushed down the toilet so there is no monument for these murderers.

    • canary says:

      Cremation dead bodies is against the Islam U.S.
      Only burning live bodies will get a Muslim honor and to heaven.

    By ANI: Radical Islamic files, al Qaeda magazine found on Boston bomber’s wife’s hard drive

    May 5 2013

    (ANI): Investigators have discovered radical Islamic materials and an al Qaeda magazine on the computer of Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s widow, and have also found explosive residue throughout their house.

    The files found on Katherine Russell’s hard drive are part of an investigation into whether the woman – who claimed to be in the dark on her husband’s terrorist activities – was aware of his plan to set off the two bombs, reports the New York Post.

    Also, posters in support of Dzhokhar have reportedly sprung up on walls in Chechnya.

    The posters declare the terror suspect “not guilty” and ask for donations to pay his medical and legal bills.

    Pro-Tsarnaev leaflets have also spotted in the Kyrgyzstan capital of Bishkek.


    I wonder what “health provider company” the Boston bomber’s wife worked for 80 hours a week.

    Families Of Dead SEAL Team Six Members Holding Press Comference Today..

    DATE: MAY 9, 2013


    TIME: 9:30 AM-11:30 AM

    Three families of Navy SEAL Team 6 special forces servicemen, along with one family of an Army National Guardsman, will appear at a press conference on May 9, 2013, to disclose never before revealed information about how and why their sons along with 26 others died in a fatal helicopter crash in Afghanistan on August 6, 2011, just a few months after the successful raid on the compound of Osama Bin Laden that resulted in the master terrorist’s death.

    Accompanying the families of these dead Navy SEAL Team 6 special operations servicemen will be retired military experts verifying their accounts of how and why the government is as much responsible for the deaths of their sons as is the Taliban.

    The areas of inquiry at the press conference will include but not be limited to:

    1. How President Obama and Vice President Biden, having disclosed on May 4, 2011, that Navy Seal Team 6 carried out the successful raid on Bin Laden’s compound resulting in the master terrorist’s death, put a retaliatory target on the backs of the fallen heroes.

    2. How and why high-level military officials sent these Navy SEAL Team 6 heroes into battle without special operations aviation and proper air support.

    3. How and why the military brass carries out too many ill-prepared missions to boost their standing with top-level military brass and the Commander-in-Chief in order that they can be promoted.

    4. How the military restricts special operations servicemen and others from engaging in timely return fire when fired upon by the Taliban and other terrorist groups and interests, thus jeopardizing the servicemen’s lives.

    5. How and why the denial of requested pre-assault fire may have contributed to the shoot down of the Navy SEAL Team 6 helicopter and the death of these special operations servicemen.

    6. How Afghani forces accompanying the Navy SEAL Team 6 servicemen on the helicopter were not properly vetted and how they possibly disclosed classified information to the Taliban about the mission, resulting in the shoot down of the helicopter.

    7. How military brass, while prohibiting any mention of a Judeo-Christian God, invited a Muslim cleric to the funeral for the fallen Navy SEAL Team 6 heroes who disparaged in Arabic the memory of these servicemen by damning them as infidels to Allah. A video of the Muslim cleric’s “prayer” will be shown with a certified translation.
