**This has gotten so ridiculous. I know the Daily Mail is a tabloid but they tried this BS last summer and if that video of Jahar and Zahira is supposed to prove something, it doesn’t - aside from the fact that the media is getting desperate. This “damning” cloth that they’re having a cow about could say anything. You see the tiniest portion of it that for this trash “newspaper” to claim to be able to say with certainty what the other 99.95% of that cloth/flag/whatever it is says is a joke.
They tried something similar with Ibragim showing a “militant” sitting in front of the flag that this video claims to contain & said it was proof that Ibragim was radicalized as well but anyone with eyes could see that the man in the photo bore a slight resemblance to Ibragim but clearly was not actually him. They also seem to have a hard-on when it comes to purses that the women are carrying. I’ve got a Prada bag that you’d swear was the real deal but I paid all of $18 lol
As this video of Jahar and Zahira has been posted, blogged, tweet and re-tweeted about a million times since last April….why is it only now that someone claims to see something? Where was this flag when the home was searched? And if it says why this rag claims, was it collected as evidence? Proof of the radical mindset of the brothers.
Also they need to learn the meaning of the word “exclusive as again, the photo they reference has also been making the rounds on social media since at least last June/July. If they have to rely on supporters Tweets & Facebook posts for their “exclusives”, that’s just plain embarrassing as well as the WARNING they actually added to the “shocking” video of Jahar asking for a kiss from his niece,**
The widow of Boston bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev cozies up to the terrorist’s mother on a trip to see her in her homeland months before the marathon massacre, in an exclusive photograph obtained by MailOnline.
In the family photo captioned Kyrgyzstan 2013, Katherine Russell, 24, is holding the daughter she had with Tsarnaev, who was killed during a shootout with police days after he and his brother Dhzokhar allegedly detonated two pressure cooker bombs along the finish line of the Boston Marathon on April 15.
The picture shows just how close Russell was with mother-in-law Zubeidat Tsarnaeva, who lives in Kyrgyzstan and has an open arrest warrant hanging over here in the US. Also in the picture is the brothers’ sister Bella.

Meanwhile, MailOnline has also found footage showing the flag of jihad hanging in the Cambridge, Massachusetts home shared with the Tsarnaev family.
The startling video was discovered while investigating images and video posted by the ‘Free Jahar’ community – who are fighting to clear the name of Tamerlan’s brother Dhozkhar, who is currently in custody awaiting trial for his part in the mass killings.He has pleaded not guilty.
The flag used by Al Qaeda is visible at the end of a short video clip showing Dhzokhar Tsarnaev with his niece, daughter of Tamerlan and Katherine.
In it, he is teasing the baby, and as he says ‘give me a kiss.’The flag, which was identified by a federal expert who examined the video, is visible behind her.
While Russell may not have known its violent symbolism it adds to the disturbing questions over how much she knew of her husband’s radicalism.
Russell, a wealthy American Muslim convert, has had the threat of charges hanging over her for nearly a year related to the bombings.
She has not been charged, but her well-heeled parents and two sisters testified in front of a grand jury last year, according to law enforcement sources.
Warning: In a shocking video clip obtained by MailOnline a corner of the flag used by Al Qaeda can been seen hanging on the wall of the Tsarnaev home where accused bomber Dhzokhar plays with his niece

She has been questioned by federal counter-terrorism officials multiple times, law enforcement sources said, but not indicted.
‘It was a small cramped apartment,’ said one source investigating the marathon bombings that killed three and wounded another 260 people. ‘What did she know about the bombings? Well, she knew her husband was in a terrorist hotbed for six months.’
Tamerlan traveled to his parents’ homeland in early 2012 and didn’t return for six months, according to Congressional testimony in front of the Homeland Security Committee.
In the photo captioned in Kyrgyzstan, both women are toting designer bags - Russell’s mother-in-law sporting a signature Louis Vuitton tote.
Massachusetts legislators discovered that the family had collected more than $100,000 in welfare while working jobs under the table.
In 2012 and 2013, Russell scooped ice cream at the Gelateria on Hanover Street in Boston’s Little Italy, MailOnline has learned, while she and her mother-in-law also illegally racked up more cash working as unlicensed home health care workers.

Their benefits stopped in 2013, a Massachusetts lawmaker told MailOnline, after the state’s Department of Health and Human Services received a tip about the illegal tax-free income the Tsarnaeva women were collecting.
But Anzor Tsarnaev, the family patriarch, continued to collect welfare United States, even after he returned to Kyrgyzstan – the country he told US immigration officials he fled in 2001 to avoid being persecuted and killed, the lawmaker told MailOnline.
‘His daughter [Ailina Tsarnaeva] wrote a letter to HHS saying that her father was mentally deficient and she was his caretaker and Massachusetts continued to put money on his EBT [Electronic Benefit Card] even though she was living in New Jersey,’ the lawmaker said. ‘He wasn’t even in the state, but he was getting money via his daughter’.

Aliana Tsarnaeva, like all of the Tsarnaeva women, had her own brush with the law last year when she appeared in a South Boston court three years after she jumped bail in connection with a counterfeit money case. Those charges were dismissed in October, according to court records.
Before marrying Tamerlan Tsarnaev, Katherine Russell – who grew up in tony North Kingston Rhode Island – was arrested for shoplifting at an old Navy store in 2007. She paid a $200 fine and the charges were dropped, according to court records.
Another sister, Bella Tsarnaeva, was also arrested on drug charges in New Jersey, after police found marijuana bagged for distribution in the Hackensack apartment she shares with her boyfriend, Ahmad Khalil.
Cops were there to respond to a domestic violence charge, police said. She showed up in a New Jersey courtroom last year with a pricey Burberry bag and agreed to enter a drug program that will clear her criminal record.
Family matriarch Zubeidat Tsarnaeva, who was arrested for shoplifting at an upscale mall in Natick, Mass. has an open arrest warrant and would be taken into custody if she returns to the US from Kyrgystan.
According to the Massachusetts lawmaker, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, all of the Tsarnaeva women collected welfare benefits. Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick has refused to allow a record of the benefits to be released citing federal privacy laws.
I’m sick of reading the crap the media writes. They always have the need to fuck with people’s lives.
