This morning saw a series of terrorist attacks occur in France, Tunisia and Kuwait with some 28 people killed in total. The Islamic State may be behind two, if not all three incidents. In Kuwait, a bomb exploded at a Shiite mosque in the country′s capitol, Kuwait City. No official count on deaths and injuries, but some reports say it numbers in the dozens. ISIS claimed responsibility almost immediately. In Tunisia, 27 people are confirmed dead after gunmen assaulted the beachfront Hotel Riu Imperial Marhaba in Sousse. No group has claimed responsibility for this attack, though a similar assault on the Bardo Museum in March which killed 23 people was claimed to be by ISIS. Then we have an attack on the Air Products factory in Saint-Quentin-Fallavier, about 20 miles south of Lyon. Two terrorists apparently beheaded a man, placing his severed head at the front gate of the factory, then exploded several bombs. The head was said to have an Arabic inscription written on it. One terrorist was killed in a gun battle with police, the other was arrested. One of the suspects was on a watch list and an ISIS flag was found at the scene.
Neither France, nor Tunisia and Kuwait wasted any time before declaring that these were terrorist attacks. There was no hand-wringing by government officials about blaming Islamic extremists as we usually see by Barack Obama and his White House of fools. No, this was not motivated due to global warming. This was Islamic terrorism, plain and simple.
All three stories on these attacks are still developing, so some facts may change. For example, early reports of the one in France described that some ten people were injured during a series of explosions at the factory. A fresher report now says just two were injured. Also, there is question as to whether bombs were used as some witnesses say that the explosions at the U.S. owned chemical factory were caused by the terrorists ramming their car into a building or large chemical tank.
The three terrorist attacks occurring this morning in France, Tunisia and Kuwait all have the signs of being committed by the Islamic State or their supporters. Once again, the world is challenged by the greatest threat to peace and security, radical Muslim extremists. In America, some groups continue to dismiss this, claiming that domestic terrorism by white supremacists are more dangerous. Yet, whenever they cite their statistics, they always leave out the 9/11 attacks, which killed nearly 3,000 Americans. Compared to ISIS and Al Qaeda, such domestic terrorists are mild amateurs.
