ADL Terrorism Update Newsletter Focuses On Boston Marathon Bombing

  • April 26, 2013

The April edi­tion of Ter­ror­ism Update, ADL’s newslet­ter pro­vid­ing news and analy­sis on inter­na­tional ter­ror­ist orga­ni­za­tions and their fol­low­ers in the U.S., is now available.

The feature article highlights the use of the Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula magazine Inspire by domestic extrem­ists moti­vated by rad­i­cal inter­pre­ta­tions of Islam. Authorities reportedly confirmed that Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the alleged Boston Marathon bombers, used bomb making instructions found in the pages of Inspire.

The profile examines the Tsarnaev brothers' social media profiles and online interests, including their apparent fascination with militancy and Islam. Par­al­lels between Tamer­lan Tsar­naev, the dead Boston Marathon bomb­ing sus­pect, and an Aus­tralian preacher named Feiz Moham­mad are also explored.

This edi­tion also includes infor­ma­tion on recent terror-related arrests in Illinois, Oregon, and Virginia, as well updates to ter­ror pros­e­cu­tions in Wash­ing­ton, Florida and New Jersey
