Terrorism Must Be Fought By All Means!


This commentary was written before detection and capture of the Muslim terrorist brothers Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, and Dzhohav Tsarnaev, 19 from Dagestan of Russsia who came to Boston to kill innocent Americans at the Boston Marathon on Monday, April 15, 2013.

First of all, as a victim of the Serbian genocide and terrorism in Kosovo (1989-1999), it is with deep pain and indignation that I condemn the killing of innocent people at the Boston Marathon (April 15, 2013).

This terrorist act should be investigated and punished by all means necessary, because when all American citizens work together with FBI, CIA, police, then we will cut out the poisonous roots of any kind of terrorism either within or outside of our beloved and dear homeland America. Only our joint effort will protect our lives and country from internal and external terrorism.

Americans Will Root Out Terror

Every terrorist group, every organization and every supporter of this ugly phenomenon should be aware that all Americans everywhere are determined and will persist in rooting out terror and terrorism regardless of who stands behind them and who carries them.

Our courage to work intensively day and night on the eradication of all forms of terrorism is reflected by Secretary of State John Kerry who in his testimony presented to the House for Foreign Affairs Committee, made known to the public opinion that “Boston is not going to be intimidated by this attack. But we are going to find out who did this. The police work being done is extraordinary. The FBI is remarkable. There is a great deal of forensic evidence. We are hopeful we can bring people to justice.”

Truly, I never believed that New York’s tragedy of September 11, 2001 would be in any way repeated after 12 years in Boston, near the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Up to now, protection, security and vigilance performed comprehensive action in the vital interest of all local citizens and the whole country.

There’s no doubt that the fatal bombing explosions at the Boston Marathon was a great tragedy because three people died (among them, Martin Richard only eight years old) and more than 180 others were wounded as a consequence of the coordinated terrorist act, the perpetrators which we now know as two young brothers from Chechnya.

Justice For Barbaric Acts

Regardless of their illogical behavior, this barbaric terrorist act in the heart of Boston should be punished and tried by all legal means without any hesitation or mercy.

Terrorists, must be found and brought to justice as soon as possible in order to prove to all our people and the whole world that in the US, there is security, order, law and justice and whoever violates these will receive the deserved punishment.

Related to this unpredicted painful tragedy in Boston, a reminder of September 11, 2001 in New York in which 2996 lost their lives and over 6000 were wounded, President Barack Obama vowed that the perpetrators of the terrorist attack on innocent people at the Boston Marathon will see the “weight of justice as soon as possible. We will get to the bottom of this. And we will find out who did this, we’ll find out why they did this. Any responsible individuals, any responsible groups will feel the full weight of justice.”

Addressing Those Who Pose A Threat

For the sake of clarity, our effort to fight all forms of terrorism wherever and whenever possible, without pardon, without sparing our own lives is our essential way to address those who pose a threat to Americans and America.

Anyone who supports terrorism has no place either in Boston, or in any corner of democratic and peaceful America. They should go to jail and hell according to merit and weight of Justice and God!

Neither God, nor the Bible, nor the Koran, says to kill innocent people

Neither God, nor the Bible, nor the Koran, says to kill innocent people. Bin Laden’s terrorism was to destroy the human world for achieving dirty political interests and religious extremism and fundamentalism. Simply, who plays with the fire of terrorism, let him burn in its flame!
