The head of an extremist Jordanian Muslim Salafi group said he’s “happy to see the horror in America” after the Boston Marathon bombings Tuesday.

“American blood isn’t more precious than Muslim blood,” said Mohammad al-Chalabi, who was convicted in an al-Qaeda-linked plot to attack U.S. missions in Jordan in 2003, The Associated Press reports. “Let the Americans feel the pain we endured by their armies occupying Iraq and Afghanistan and killing our people there.”

A Jordanian official told the AP that the U.S. Embassy in Amman has beefed up security.
