The Enemy of My Enemy Is Not Always My Friend, Part 2

Tamerlan-received-welfare        Admittedly, the United States and other Western nations may owe some descendants of Muslims from small Turkish countries repayment, yet these indebted countries should take care in retribution through immigration policies.

Some bloggers suggest that for political reasons law enforcement is not viewing possible Islamic criminals a close look.  In ‘Conciliatory FBI Policies Toward Islamism Hampered Probe into Boston Bombers, Experts Say,” Bill Gertz of Washington Free Beacon quotes conterterrorism expert, Sebastian Gorka:

“The fact is religion has been expunged from counterterrorism training.  The FBI can’t talk about Islam and they can’t talk about jihad.”  Gertz says that even after the Boston Marathon bombings, the government refers to the Tsarnev brother as Chechens, rather than radicalized Islamists.

Question:  why are people who have nothing of value to add to American culture so easily welcomed here. For instance Ibragim Todashev, another Chechen and a close friend of the older Tsarnev, is now believed to have joined him in drug-related murders of three young men in Boston months before the bombings.

Like too many immigrants, Todashev entered the country on a student visa.  But after dropping out of school, he stayed in the U.S., moving from Boston to Florida, without interest by immigration officials. Last week, a FBI agent killed Todashev after he turned violent over interrogation on the Boston murders.

Desiree Stennett and Jerriann Sullivan, reporters for the Orlando Sentinel, add to Todashev’s background:  “Todashev, a mixed martial arts fighter, knocked a stranger unconscious in a bloody fight over a parking space at the Premium Outlet Mall earlier this month and was arrested on aggravated battery charges.”

They add that Todashev’s Boston training partner “said Todashev frequently got into fights with people outside the gym and verbal disputes with other members.”  That trainer added this Chechen “had been kicked out of several gyms for getting into altercations on the street.”

In ‘Slain Russian Ibragim Todashev ‘Intimidated’ Former Neighbors,’ Laurel J. Sweet, O’Ryan Johnson and Antonio Planas of the Boston Herald write that neighbors of Todashev when he lived in Cambridge “said he was nasty.”

They add:  “At the time of yesterday’s shooting, Todashev was free on a $3,500 bond, according to Florida court  Todashev-terroristrecords, after being arrested May 4 by sheriff’s deputies at gunpoint at the Premium Outlet Mall in Orlando on a charge of felony aggravated battery after a mall security guard reported a fight in a parking lot that left a man battered and bleeding.”

So why were Todashev and Tamerlan Tsarnev––both with proven violent tendencies––welcomed to this country and certified to stay here.  Such lack of wisdom in immigration policies must end.  As the Christian nonfiction book list insists:  “The fear of The LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction (Proverbs 1: 7).”
