At last Friday's prayer service at the terror tied ISB Imam Suhaib Webb remained true to form and portrayed Muslims and the Muslim community as the real victims of the Boston jihad bombings. He belligerently stated that Muslims should stand up to anyone who expressed hostility towards them with "tough love". The irony in his words and ominous inference is echoed in the confession of Dzokhar Tsarnaev, the bomber who told police his brother perpetrated the bombings in order to "defend Islam".

Excerpt from "Muslims Gather For Friday Prayers Shaken Saddened Indignant"
"...In his sermon, Imam William Suhaib Webb, spiritual leader of the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center in Roxbury, the city's largest mosque, captured the sense of lamentation, bewilderment, and indignation his congregation felt.
"We come [together] after a horrendous tragedy has befallen our city," he said. "Our sacredness has been violated. And a week later, we find our own community under a tremendous amount of pressure."
Webb spoke of the powerful emotions experienced by community members — the surgical resident who rushed to help the wounded; the badly wounded Saudi woman who almost lost her legs; the foreign student who confided to Webb, "I just think the whole world is against me."
But, the imam said, "the dark clouds that are so intimidating, they bring with them the gift of rain."
He pointed to the 100 or so supportive e-mails he said he received from neighbors, as well as others around the country. And he thanked clergy of other faiths who had stepped forward to support the local mosques, including Rabbis Ronne Friedman and Jeremy S. Morrison of Temple Israel and the Rev. Burns Stanfield, pastor of the Fourth Presbyterian Church in South Boston and president of the Greater Boston Interfaith Organization, each of whom addressed the Roxbury mosque Friday.
He said Muslims must politely but firmly stand up to their detractors. "No one has the right to define our community except us," Webb said, adding, a bit later: "The best way to address hate is with love." But tough love, he said..."
Boston Bomber ‘Wanted to Defend Islam'
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, the surviving suspect in the bombing of the Boston marathon, has confirmed that his older brother Tamerlan was behind the attack, CNN reports, citing a United States government source.
Tamerlan, 26, was killed in a shootout with police last week.
Dzhokhar has reportedly said little to investigators, but confirmed that Tamerlan was the leader and that he "wanted to defend Islam from attack." The two carried out the attack on their own initiative and were not in touch with foreign terrorists, he said..." http://www.militantislammonitor.org/article/id/5765
