This Globe story suggests that he was entirely innocent and even set up by the FBI. So why did he attack the FBI agent?

The FBI identified the person shot and killed as Ibragim Todashev, 27.
Two Massachusetts State Police troopers were also participating in
the questioning at the time of the fatal shooting, the FBI said. State
Police spokesman David Procopio had no comment.
According to the FBI and local news accounts, the shooting took place
in an apartment on Peregrine Avenue while Todashev was being questioned
about the bombings and Tamerlan Tsarnaev.
“The agent along with two Massachusetts State Police troopers and
other law enforcement personnel were interviewing an individual in
connection with the Boston Marathon bombing investigation when a violent
confrontation was initiated by the individual,’’ the FBI said in an
updated summary of the incident released around 10:30 a.m.
The FBI had not previously disclosed that State Police were part of the interviewing team.
“During the confrontation, the individual was killed and the agent
sustained non-life threatening injuries,’’ the FBI said. “As this
incident is under review, we have no further details at this time.”
Khusen Taramiv, a friend of Todashev, told WESH-TV
in Orlando that both he and Todashev were questioned about his ties to
Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who was killed after a shootout in Watertown with
police on April 19. Tamerlan
Tsarnaev’s younger brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, is in federal custody
and facing charges that could bring the death penalty. The bombings on
April 15 near the Marathon finish line killed three people and wounded
more than 260. MIT Police Officer Sean Collier was also allegedly
murdered by the brothers.
The FBI said today that a Washington-based deadly force investigative
team is being sent to Orlando to investigate the shooting on Peregrine
Taramiv said he was released by the FBI, but Todashev was still being questioned by the agents.
Taramiv said Todashev met Tsarnaev when both lived in Massachusetts,
and that the two men spoke with each other “months before” the Marathon
Taramiv said his friend was not close to Tsarnaev. “They were not best friends,’’ Taramiv told the Orlando station.
Taramiv insisted that Todashev was not a radicalized Muslim, and that
he had no role in, nor did he know anything about, the Marathon
“He was not a radical. He was a Muslim,’’ Taramiv said. “I’m a
Muslim. That’s it. ... He never had a gun. ... He was shocked’’ by the
Taramiv said Todashev was worried about the direction of the
questioning by the FBI agents, that he was going to be “set up’’ by the
law enforcement agency.
“He had a bad feeling,’’ said Taramiv, who quoted Todashev as telling
him that the FBI was “making up this crazy stuff’’ that there was a
connection between the terror suspect and himself.
Taramiv said that Tsarnaev and Todashev spoke recently, likely via
Skype, but had only limited contact with each other since Todashev moved
Mike Lee, co-owner of The Jungle, an Orlando gym, said Todashev had belonged to the gym about a year and a half ago.
“He was entirely unmemorable,” he said.
Lee said Todashev didn’t use the gym’s coaches or banner for his
fights, just the equipment. Lee believes he had paid the gym membership
in full and had no outstanding bills.

Why are we importing jihad invaders?
Exclusive: Pamela Geller calls for immediate halt of immigration by Muslims
The Washington Times
reported Sunday that “the Homeland Security Department has granted
legal status to 99.2 percent of all illegal immigrants who have applied
under President Obama’s new non-deportation policy for young adults,
according to the latest numbers released Friday.”
It’s another giant middle finger to the American people by the Obama
administration, endangering national security and guaranteeing higher
unemployment. Supporters of this policy, according to the Times, “say
the high rate makes sense given the motivated pool of youngsters, known
as ‘Dreamers’ because of the Dream Act legislation that would give them
full citizenship rights.”
Yes, the motivated pool of youngsters like Al Harbi, the Saudi
“person of interest” whose role in the Boston Marathon jihad bombing has
never been adequately explained, and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the Boston
jihad bomber himself, or Khalid Ali-M Aldawsari
(building bombs to use on the home of George W. Bush, hydroelectric
dams, nuclear power plants, nightclubs and the homes of soldiers) or
Ahmed Ferhani and Mohamed Mamdouh (who plotted to bomb a New York
synagogue and the Empire State Building) or Amine El Khalifi (who
plotted a suicide bombing plot of U.S. Capitol) or Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis (who plotted to bomb the Manhattan office of the Federal Reserve Bank) and so many other highly motivated youngsters.
We have been importing jihadists for years now with Muslim immigration programs under the Refugee Resettlement program, diversity visas and religious visas. The Refugee Council USA
says: “The U.S. has historically maintained a policy of admitting
refugees of special humanitarian concern into the country.” Yet what
that means in practice is very different from what most Americans would
expect. It’s always a shock to people when they first find out how Refugee Resettlement
works. Instead of giving refuge to the religious minorities that are
persecuted, oppressed and subjugated under the Shariah, we are opening
the floodgates to Islamic supremacists and jihadists.
And what most folks don’t know is that it’s the OIC-driven
U.N. that decides who gets refugee status. The U.N. High Commissioner
for Refugees (UNHCR) determines which of the world’s “huddled masses”
comes to the U.S. as humanitarian refugees. According to a 2008 report
(and little has changed since then), “major refugee ‘hot spots’ include
the Horn of Africa with Somalia, Darfur in the Sudan and Ethiopia,
Iraq, Pakistan and Myanmar. The U.S. is the third-highest ranked country
in terms of hosting refugees. The annual budget for the UNHCR is over
$1.7 billion derived from government contributions, foundation grants
Here’s the thing. Anthony Kimery reported in Homeland Security Today
last week that “the threat of ‘homegrown’ and foreign jihadist groups
and individuals plotting mass casualty attacks on U.S. soil has not
weakened, despite degradation of al-Qaida Central (AQC). … Authorities
said there is an exceptionally ‘heightened concern’ regarding
intelligence that the successful radicalization of Muslims and new
converts to jihad in the U.S. and throughout the West who’ve been
involved in mass casualty plots and plotting has resulted in inspiring
of a legion of ‘inspired’ new jihadists, many of whom are ‘quite
willing’ to carry out mass casualty attacks, including suicide martyr
This is a direct result of the huge influx of whole Muslim communities from jihad areas and nations into the U.S. since 9/11. The Obama administration is importing whole Muslim communities from Islamic countries like Somalia. The “diversity” immigration numbers are doubling, tripling in some months.
This immigration must stop. Many of these devout Muslims do not
assimilate. They agitate for jihad, and many return to Somalia (or
Pakistan, Afghanistan) for training. Why are we importing hostile
We should be importing whole Christian communities or Hindu
communities, etc., that are living (and dying) under the boot of the
Shariah. I know several people (Jews among them) who are trying to get
out of Europe and Canada, and they are prohibited from emigrating. These
include the best of people, businessmen (who would bring jobs),
doctors, etc. They have met years of red tape and denial. Further, I
must field three or four emails a day from former Muslims in Egypt,
Mauritania, Gaza, etc., begging me to help them escape their dangerous
circumstances. Again, brick wall.

Calls for slaughter shrieking from mosque speakers -- that says it all.
Notice that government officials aren't wiling to protect the Christians -- many, I am sure, support the sharia against the infidel, while others fear that the Muslim mobs will turn on them if they help the Christians. This is consistent with Islamic history. It was only a matter of time before any benevolent (tolerant of kuffar) Muslim ruler was inevitably overthrown by the bloodthirsty mob, in accordance with Islamic teaching.
Calls for Attacks on Christians Emanate from Mosque Loudspeakers in Pakistan Villages Morningstar News, May 21, 2013 (thanks to Diane)
A Muslim candidate for the Punjabi Regional Assembly in Pakistan who lost the race in the national elections on May 11th is blaming the Christian minority for his loss. The Christians largely supported his opponent and the winner of the seat who is also a Muslim. Thus, the loser is calling on his supporters to drive the Christians out of the area by maiming and killing them and confiscating their lands. The police and government officials aren't able or willing to protect the Christians because the Muslim mobs then riot and threaten the government. Thus, out of fear for their own safety, they cave and let the guilty go free without consequences.
Gender apartheid. A Muslim woman who wants to be free will be jailed for it under the sharia.
Back in March I reported
deep concern for a young Tunisian Muslima who had disappeared after she
posted topless photos of herself to protest the Shariah oppression and
subjugation she suffered as a Muslim girl. One controversial image
showed the young Muslimah, Amina Tyler, smoking a cigarette, baring her
breasts, with the message in Arabic written across her chest: “My body
belongs to me, and is not the source of anyone’s honour.”
A Muslim cleric in moderate Tunisia called for her stoning death. Tunisian newspaper Kapitalis quoted preacher Almi Adel, who heads the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, saying:
“The young lady should be punished according to Shariah, with 80 to 100
lashes, but [because of] the severity of the act she has committed, she
deserves be stoned to death.” And: “Her act could bring about an
epidemic. It could be contagious and give ideas to other women. It is
therefore necessary to isolate [the incident]. I wish her to be healed.”
Amina was on the run solely because she wanted to be free. She was caught and arrested. Even more heinous are the Muslim women who enable this misogyny and oppression.
"Amina Tyler, Tunisia’s ‘topless jihad’ activist, caught and under arrest" Al Arabiya, May 21, 2013
After months of reportedly going into hiding, the outspoken
Tunisian feminist who sparked a trend of “topless jihad” has been found
and arrested by Tunisian authorities earlier this week and may be
charged for conducting “provocative acts.”
Amina Tyler, 19, was
found in the midst of police scuffles with hardline Salafist group Ansar
al-Shariah in the central Tunisian city of Kairouan on Sunday.
Tyler previously described herself as a member of the Ukrainian feminist group Femen, which uses nudity in protests.
said she allegedly scrawled “Femen” on the wall near the main mosque
and may have intended to hang a banner on the building before an angry
crowd gathered and started shouting at her to leave, according to The
Video posted by the Tunisian online Nawaat news
site shows Tyler, with dyed blonde hair, clutching a banner and being
hustled away by police and put into a van as residents chased her.
local resident shouts at the camera: “She is dishonoring us. We will
protect our town, but a dirty girl like her shouldn’t come among us.”
Ali Aroui, the spokesman for the Tunisian interior ministry, described
her acts as provocative and said she was under investigation and may be
charged for her behavior on Sunday. He added that he understood the
angry reaction of local residents to her appearance.
had banned Ansar al-Shariah’s annual conference, citing it as a threat
to security and public order, and sent 11,000 soldiers and police to
prevent hardline Muslims, known as salafis, from entering Kairouan.
In March, Tyler posted pictures
of her topless body with the phrase “my body is my own” scrawled on it,
and she went into hiding after receiving death threats. Her family took
her to stay with relatives outside the capital before she escaped and
hid with friends.
A month later, Tyler had been trying to leave Tunisia,
her former lawyer said after a video surfaced in which the woman
recounted being drugged and given virginity tests by relatives.
“Free Amina” rallies held by bare-breasted Femen activists hit Paris last month as Tyler’s supporters feared she would soon face criminal prosecution.
