AP Mad Libs


CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (Brooklyn, NY) (AP) -- When preachers (the Rabbi) told congregants at a mosque (shul) in November that it was appropriate for Muslims (Jews) to celebrate U.S. holidays such as the Fourth of July and Thanksgiving (and Israeli holidays such as Yom Hashoah and Yom Haatzmaut), a man who would later be a suspect in last week's the Boston Marathon bombing stood up to argue, the mosque (shul) said.

The Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center (shul) on Monday told about that outburst by Tamerlan Tsarnaev (Yankel S.)and provided more details on a second one two months later that the group had previously described.

Both mosque (shul) incidents happened after the older brother returned from a months-long trip to Russia (yeshiva) last year. An aunt there said he was studying Islam (Torah) but struggled to fit in.

The troublesome behavior first came in November, just before Thanksgiving, the mosque (shul) said. At a weekly prayer (shacharis), a preacher (the rabbi) gave a sermon saying it was appropriate for Muslims (Jews) to celebrate American (and Israeli) holidays. Tamerlan Tsarnaev (Yankel) stood up and argued that "celebration of any holiday was not allowed in the faith."

The preacher (rabbi) met with Tsarnaev (Yankel) and discussed the issue after the service.

In January, the mosque shul said Tsarnaev (Yankel) had a similar outburst.

This time, the sermon included praise for Martin Luther King Jr., and this time Tsarnaev (Yankel) shouted, calling the preacher (Rabbi) a "non-believer" (kofer) and "hypocrite" who was "contaminating people's minds." Congregants shouted back at him, telling him to leave, and he did.
