Described as a “war scene,” the body count climbs in today’s massive Islamic attack in Brussels. Explosions at the airport and metro killed at least 31 people and wounded more than 100 people. “We are at war,” French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said after a crisis meeting called by the French president. “We have been subjected for the last few months in Europe to acts of war.” War against whom, exactly?
Here we go again. After every jihad attack, leaders stump on the mangled, dead bodies of the victims of Islamic attacks. They bluster, they bloviate — and do….little. The knee-jerk reaction to this unimaginable carnage is hollow words and deep concern for growing “islamofaxubia.” Muslim leaders use the carnage to proselytize for Islam and attack those of use who have long warned of this inevitable bloodshed.
The most notorious of the dissemblers, President Obama, insists the problem is with violent extremism, not Islam. Extremism is merely a measure. Extreme what, Mr. President? Piety. Islam. Still in Cuba posing with murderers, Obama looks absurd whitewashing the motive and preaching his contemptible brand of dawah we have all grown so weary of in the wake of jihad bloodshed.
Merkel, resign. Cameron, too. Donald Tusk, President of the European Council, resign. Jean-Claude Juncker, President of the European Commission, resign. President of the Council of the European Union (since 1 January 2016, The Netherlands) Martin Schulz, resign. Resign now, while you still have your heads.
“‘We are at war,’ French leader says after Brussels attack,” Associated Press, March 22, 2016 (thanks to Robert Spencer):
BRUSSELS — Explosions, at least one likely caused by a suicide bomber, rocked the Brussels airport and subway system Tuesday, prompting a lockdown of the Belgian capital and heightened security across Europe. At least 28 people were reported dead.
A spokesman for the Brussels Metro said 15 people were killed and 55 injured in an explosion on a train, and Belgian media reported at least 13 dead in two explosions at the airport, with many others injured.
Belgium raised its terror alert to the highest level, diverting planes and trains and ordering people to stay where they were. Airports across Europe immediately tightened security.
“We are at war,” French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said after a crisis meeting called by the French president. “We have been subjected for the last few months in Europe to acts of war.”
European security officials have been bracing for a major attack for weeks, and warned that the Islamic State group was actively preparing to strike. The arrest Friday of a key suspect in the November attacks in Paris heightened those fears, as investigators said many more people were involved than originally thought, and that some are still on the loose.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility for Tuesday’s attacks, and Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel said there was no immediate evidence linking key Paris suspect Salah Abdeslam to them. After his arrest Friday, Abdeslam told authorities he had created a new network and was planning new attacks.
Authorities told people in Brussels to stay where they were. Airport security was also tightened in Paris, London and other European cities….
