Boston Bomber’s ex Nadine Ascencao says Tamerlan Tsarnaev heard the Devil taking through his TV

Boston Marathon Washington

IN today’s episode of Why Tamerlan Tsarnaev detonated a bomb at the Boston Marathon  murdering innocent woman and children, we hear from Nadine Ascencao, 24, who claims to have dated the killer.

In My boyfriend the bomber” , we meet the “fanatic’s ex”.

What was he fanatic of? Islam? Tamerlan Tsarnaev left no jihadi suicide video behind. We’ve seen no messages of hate and vengeance.

They couple dated in 2006. The Sun says she was 17. The Sun does not say how old he was, just that he was 26 when he died. The impression is of an older controlling male. But he’s have been 17 or 18 at the time.

The Sun adds:

He said I was ‘pure’ and he took my virginity. I loved him but he slapped me and tried to brainwash me to hate US like he did

The Sun goes on to say that…

…he made her wear an Islamic hijab and pray to Allah and slapped her when she wore Western clothes. But she was so blindly in love with the handsome boxer who had taken her virginity, she did her utmost to make him happy.

She tells readers:

“I went to his mosque a couple of times and even looked into converting to make him happy. I thought, ‘This is crazy’ — but I still did it for him. Tamerlan had taken my virginity and said he loved me because I was pure and hadn’t been with any other guys. I was in love and scared he’d leave me if I didn’t do what he said. Looking back I had a lucky escape.”

He did not force her to convert. She looked into it. She did what he said because she was scared of being without him. We’re learning a lot more about her than we are about him.

During their three-year relationship she watched him change from a cannabis-smoking, party-loving teenager into a violent extremist.

This is what the Sun say about cannabis and plans to legalise it:

Sun GP Dr Carol Cooper said: “It’s clear the current drugs policy isn’t working. But it is a worry that many drugs are linked with mental health problems.”

Having made cannabis a symbol of youthful freedom, we hear from Nadine Ascencao:

“One minute he’s this funny, normal guy who liked boxing and having fun, the next he is praying four times a day, watching Islamic videos and talking insane nonsense… He wouldn’t let me watch TV or listen to the radio. He’d say, ‘TV is the project of Satan’ and claimed Satan sent us messages through commercial music.

The jihadi is starting to look like a Schizophrenic. The Royal College of Physicians tells us about that condition:

Paranoid’ delusions

These are ideas that make you feel persecuted or harassed. They may be:
unusual – it feels as though MI5 or the government is spying on you. You may think that others are influencing you with special powers or technology.


A hallucination happens when you hear, smell, feel or see something but it isn’t caused by anything (or anybody) around you. The commonest one is hearing voices.
Feelings of being controlled

You feel that:
your thoughts have suddenly disappeared as though someone has taken them out of your mind;
your thoughts feel as though they are not yours it’s as though someone else has put them into your mind;
your body is being taken
