Islamic extremism continues to be one of, if not the greatest, threat to humanity. And now, finally, we have a president willing to speak the truth when it comes to terrorism.
ISIS is claiming responsibility for the bombing that took the lives of at least 22, mostly children, during an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, U.K.
While the attacks won’t interrupt the president’s travel plans, the issues of safety, security, and immigration will now be at the top of his priorities list.
“So many young, beautiful, innocent people living and enjoying their lives,” President Trump said in the aftermath of the Manchester terror attack. “Murdered by evil losers.”
Many of those in attendance were children, which shows just how sick these terrorists really are. The president touched on that fact during his speech in Bethlehem, accompanied by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
“You’ve seen just a horrible thing going on. Horrific, horrific injuries. Terrible. Dozens of innocent people. Beautiful young children, savagely murdered in a heinous attack upon humanity.”
“This is what I’ve spent these last few days talking about in our trip overseas,” the president said following a meeting with Palestinian Authority. “Our society can have no tolerance for this continuation of bloodshed. We cannot stand a moment longer for the slaughter of innocent people.”
Who Did It?
CBS News has confirmed that the suicide bomber was 23-year old Salman Abedi. Yet, for some reason a lot of media outlets refuse to identify the attacker.
ISIS was quick to take credit for the attack, but many outlets are reluctant to say this was carried out by a terror organization. In fact, CNN is doing its best to distance this attack from Islamic extremism, as though a suicide bomber isn’t proof enough… (what other group willingly blows themselves up?).
What We Know
From Monsters To Losers
The president has decided that he will no longer call those who commit acts of terror “monsters,” as he believes they like this term. Instead, he says, “I will call them from now on losers, because that’s what they are.”
“They’re losers. And we’ll have more of them. But they’re losers. Just remember that.” -President Trump
The president also issued a command to those who hope to rid their countries of terrorists:
“Drive them out. Drive them out of your places of worship. Drive them out of your communities. Drive them out of your holy land. And drive them out of this earth.”
We need to wake up, before this happens on our own soil. It’s obvious that there are many who only want to destroy humanity. As the president said, we need to come together to drive out the evil forces in this world!
Stay safe out there and pray without ceasing!
