Zubeidat Tsnarnaeva, the mother of convicted terrorist, Dzhokhar Tsnarnaev, has reacted to the news her son will get the death penalty.
“Allah is the greatest. His decisions are the greatest. Inshaallah to him we belong and to him we will return. They think that they are killing us and they celebrate this, but we are the ones who will rejoice when Allah grants us the chance to behold them in the flames of an eternal and terrifying fire, an otherworldly flame, inshaallah. I love my sons. with this love I will stand in front of Allah. Thank you dear and may Allah be happy with you,” she told her friend Zarina Kasernova via WhatsApp.
The message came in an image which has since appeared on social network site VKontakte in a group run by a family friend called “Support Dzhokhar Tsnarnaev.”
Zarina Kasernova told website Vocativ that “You should understand that this group is not a shrine to Dzhokhar, it’s a group with doubts about the case. While there are still doubts, there will be support. I haven’t seen 100% proof of his guilt, so I’m here.”
