Once again there has been a terror attack at a concert. This one in Manchester, United Kingdom. A suicide bomber killed 22 people and wounded 60 others mostly children. This when UK is the most security conscious country in Europe. One expert said there is an information overload and there 3,500 terror suspects under surveillance in UK. There is less human intelligence and active neighbourhood policing and too much dependence on cameras and tapes which can take many man hours to go through.
Manchester is also a city that is home to many Muslim communities where some mosques and clerics urge their flock to practice the Wahabi strain of Islam.
In Saudi Arabia, which actively supports ISIS and other terror groups, there are no terror attacks. There is also no freedom. There are no such thing as human rights there and the most rigid form of Sharia Law is practiced along with cutting of limbs and beheading. There are no concerts for teenage girls. This is a country where Wahabi preachers export a radical form of Islam to other countries. Where religious police are seen beating women who let an inch of their ankles show. It is also the site of the two holiest shrines of Islam are-Mecca and Medina.
This is also the country that President Trump went to on his first overseas visit and said, quite candidly, “Young Muslim boys and girls should be able to grow up free from fear, safe from violence, and innocent of hatred.”
“Few nations have been spared the violent reach of terrorism. America has suffered repeated barbaric attacks from the atrocities of September 11 to the devastation of the Boston bombings to the horrible killings in San Bernardino and Orlando. The nations of Europe have also endured unspeakable horror. So too have the nations of Africa and South America. India, Russia, China, and Australia have all been victims,” he added
Pointing out to the 44 Muslim heads of state that were present he said, “It should increasingly become one of the great global centers of commerce and opportunity. This region should not be a place from which refugees flee but to which newcomers flock.”
In effect Trump pointed out that the refugee crisis was one of their own making.
He added, “There can be no coexistence with this violence. There can be no tolerating it, no accepting it, no excusing it, and no ignoring it. Every time a terrorist murders an innocent person and falsely invokes the name of God, it should be an insult to every person of faith. Terrorists do not worship God; they worship death. If we do not act against this organised terror, then we know what will happen and what will be the end result.
