Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s mother says that the U.S. “will pay” in an angry rant that followed the verdict in her son’s case. According to the New York Daily News, Zubeidat Tsarnaeva is extremely disappointed in the United States’ legal system, and she is angry that her son is being held accountable for the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings.
“They will pay for my sons and the sons of Islam, permanently. The tears of their mothers will be fuel for them in hell,” said Tsarnaeva after her son was found guilty on 30 separate counts, 17 of which are punishable by the death penalty. He will be sentenced next week.
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s mom not only said that the U.S. will pay, but she also said that she loves both of her sons. Dzhokar’s brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, was killed in Watertown, Massachusetts, in a police shootout just days after he and Dzhokhar set off two pressure cooker bombs that killed three people, and injured hundreds more.
“I love my sons immeasurably. Precious, glorious and rare in character and essence….The best sons of their mother, and also the best sons of their religion,” she wrote in her bitter rant. The rant was published by Vocativ, and was written in all caps. More of her words are below. You can read her entire letter here.
“How can a mother feel whose son is in the claws of a predator preparing to tear him to pieces like meat? But there is an abundance of such mothers, who bury their best sons in the ground who are tormented by predators, like brave young eagles soaring through the open sky, limitless, and who in one moment and in one instant end up in the claws of bloodthirsty and ravenous beasts whom they feed to their empty and terrifying belly.”
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s mother saying that the U.S. “will pay” could be taken as a threat, and the woman already has eyes on her. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Zubeidat Tsarnaeva has been in the U.S. terrorist database since 2011.
“She was placed in the database by the C.I.A. at the same time as [her son] Tamerlan,” reported the Inquisitr. Some believe that the U.S. should have paid closer attention to the Tsarnaev family given the information that they had.
To this day, Zubeidat Tsarnaeva still believes that both of her sons are innocent. Once Dzhokhar is sentenced, his mother may have additional choice words to share with the world.
