A WSJ examination of the Boston bombing suspects' family shows growing turmoil over the past five years -- driven in part by a growing interest in religion by both Tamerlan Tsarnaev and his mother.

This sort of radicalism comes about when you think that you have the greater "imaginary friend" and you are doing everything to please him. Look how much closer to Allah you are getting. You don't smoke or drink, don't have any American friends really, and you don't understand them. They are all becoming more and more depraved, so you enter into a plan to kill them secretly and please Allah more. Congratulations. You have now proven that it is YOU who are depraved. Your destiny should have been to wife and child, but your ignorant actions don't even classify you as a martyr. What other outcome than your own death was expected here?
A T-shirt worn by a woman at my work explains the beginnings of such radicalism very well. It reads, "I know you love Jesus, but I am his favorite." Now simply remove the name Jesus and add Allah, Zeus, or whatever name you like. Religion has done everything from its beginnings to encourage bizarre actions one way or another and telling the believer that he has an "immortal soul" that lives on in glory. Sorry, Charlie. YOU are the soul. You are born a living soul, and if you live long enough you will be a dead soul! There is no glory in terrorism or in being dead.
It now appears also that the Russians had warned us about Tamerlan when he went back to Russia several months, and they were keeping an eye on him. Our FBI was informed about him, but they interviewed him at length and decided that he was no threat. If this story is true it shows incredible stupidity!
