As the death toll from the Easter bombings in Sri Lanka rose to 321, the Islamic State group claimed responsibility and released images that purported to show the attackers, while the country’s prime minister warned that several suspects armed with explosives are still at large.
Another top government official said the suicide bombings at the churches, hotels and other sites were carried out by Islamic fundamentalists in apparent retaliation for the New Zealand mosque massacres last month that a white supremacist has been charged with carrying out.
The Sri Lanka attacks were planned long before Christchurch.
Bang goes the “militant Buddhist” angle the BBC was pushing on Sunday. We have a problem. It’s everywhere. It is called jihad and it walks amongst us.
“Strike terror in the hearts of the unbelievers” is an open ended command directly from the “perfect man”, Muhammad, prophet of Islam. Your Mohammedan neighburs can (and will) chose to act like Muhammad whenever they feel the need to be more devout.
