ISIS claims responsibility for Sri Lanka bombings

839 ratings | 145355 views
ISIS has claimed responsibility for the Easter Sunday attacks in Sri Lanka, according to a statement put out by the terrorist group's news agency Amaq. "The attackers who targeted citizens of the (anti-ISIS) coalition state members and Christians in Sri Lanka the day before yesterday were fighters of the Islamic State," the claim stated. The statement offered no evidence to support the claim, and there is no direct evidence yet that the terror group was involved. Some of their claims have been false in the past. #CNN #News

Islamic terror is the reason people are voting for far right parties. Lesser of two evils.

Why terrorize, kill innocent or forced people. Deliberately causing harm to innocent people and "unintentionally harming innocent people, or being unintended" is completely opposite. And may have different identities or meanings. It is also murder but there are many situations and it is unintentional or intentional.

Interesting , they were saying this “had all the hallmarks of isis” and then all of a sudden “isis is responsible” so how did they know exactly who was responsible before the investigation even happened? Think , people, think! Stop listening to everything the news tells you . They’re all lying to you.

ISIS kill more musliams then and other religion. It's the point of terror to spread fear and to break people apart. They want us to stand against each other instead of standing for one another. I still remember the video of the two animals (from the same species) fight one another and not realizing that the true enemy was coming for them in plain sight. And that's exactly what terror is. I have nothing against you or against any religion. I want everyone to live in peace. I mean EVERYONE and I dont care what book they follow or prophet or if they dont follow anything I want everyone to understand that when you start saying its us and them it's when you fall down the rabbit whole that every extremist fell into.

Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Turkey and Iran promote Islamic foundamantalism. Then Islamic foundamantalism produce Islamic terrorism. And this Islamic terrorism is not a new thing to world, but it Has been since beginning of Islam.

Sri Lanka entered into a security partnership with Pakistan, buying arms and ammunition in a big way since 1999. In fact, the dreaded Pakistan ISI was hired by Sri Lanka Army in its fight against LTTE. The ISI, allegedly, started recruiting from the Muslim minority community in Lanka to tackle LTTE. Sri Lanka will go to Pakistan for help now; or will it?

@Fahiba Shantona. Dear Fahiba-Hanum, I am most impressed with your fair and moving approach to the problem. With all humility I suggest one thing to be considered, though. The problem can not be solved unless the Muslim clergy - including and specifically in remote areas - act as front liners in reconsidering the outlived notion of Jihad which, I suspect, still exists. By all means, symmetric challenges are applicable to other confessions as well. Otherwise, mutual outrages, mass manslaughter included, can not be stopped. I most heartily join you in extending condolences to all fallen in the course of these atrocities and empathy to their families. You are also very right in calling all sober and peace-minded forces to unite in the name of uprooting this problem all around the world.

No wonder Jesus kept the scribes away. He knew they'd spin the truth for a story. I do hope one day CNN is banned from the US and every reporter for them is tried for treason and publicly hung. If anyone is working with the Russians it's them. They're friends to Islam. Just like Vladimir Putin is. They wouldn't even call it an attack on Christians. And like Putin they hate America.

Why attack people who are PRACTICALLY family instead of the people you're actually angry at???????? Further, this will only escalate hatred AGAINST Muslims and more support for White Supremists.

"ISIS" ALWAYS claims responsiility. .....but for any thinking man, DOES THIS MAKE ANY SENSE AT ALL??????????? I mean, who does that sort of thing UNLESS the people want you to think it's Muslims. Further, how would Mossad always know of some imminent attack........UNLESS THEY'RE INVOLVED. While in the military, I've NEVER.......EVER been taught that revealing one's position or informing on oneself's actions is a GOOD thing. In fact, doing so is one of the quickest ways to get yourselves killed.........and YET, "ISIS" claims responsibilty for everthing, from you stubbing your toes against the bed railin to inclement weather...........it's ISIS. Doesn't this seem reckless, suicidal, and immature: I DID IT!!! I DID IT!!! LOOK AT ME. HEY, OVER HERE.....I NEED THE ATTENTION. IT........MAKES NO SENSE, UNLESS ISIS IS BEING FRAMED.

The extremist groups have been spreading brutal jihad against other religions and people of the world. The roots of jihadi terrorists came from the Islamic Taqiyya and Hadith or Sira. So, the disbelivers or non-Muslim countries have learned and known so much about the the jihadi terrorists and the teachings of Islam in the Islamic qurans.

I am not American though, but I do not believe America has something to do with this or the ISIS. When you carry out the true teachings of Islam, you will really become an extremist. Mark that. Teachings of Islam are devilish. If you are a Muslim and you have enemies of Islam, you should kill them regardless.

"Isis is now claiming" They will be given credit for it if the Conglomerates did it. This is very bad. I am not saying the CIA did it or that Conglomerate Mercenaries are behind it but it was too well done for who ever did it to not take credit for it. After a week goes by only money.... tax free money could pull this off and want nothing to do with it. The amount of tax free money that can be had for a civil war starting instance like this is a lot. What needs to be done is a tax on all war profits of any kind. Right now there basically none and that makes war way too lucrative for any CEO worth his salt to pass up. TAX WAR profits!

We dont have to be Phd to understand that religions have nothing to do with any kind of violance.. All religions teach you to become better humenbeing for your societies. Its my request to folks belong to all religions, that stay united and dont let ISIS or any other hateful organization win by fighting with each other.. Blessings upon Sri lanka.. lots of regards and best wishes..
peet1250 (1 month ago)
@W S Of course you are correct generally speaking. But the Quran contains numerous texts that compel followers to violence against non followers. If you don't believe me read yourself and take their word for it. (because they quote these texts, as their inspiration). So whereever Islam is, you will have what you saw in Sri Lanka. Your starting point seemed naive.
W S (1 month ago)
Well, at least to me it makes sense, that millions and millions of people of a religion pratice that peacefully but bunch of extramists groups (who are enemy of everybody regardless of fait) cannot represent the enitire religion..
peet1250 (1 month ago)
@W S Just because a majority is peaceful, you are sure you can define a movement as a Religion,not a violent cult? You are correct, many world leaders dont want to stop this game and protect the majority of their citizens.
W S (1 month ago)
@peet1250 , then God will never give long life to such religion, as it is the practice of God.. If the peaceful majority practices the religion, it can't be wrong.. Only some bad figures do the false interpretations to acheive their political goals.., and they should be punished.., but unfortunately seems like the world leaders really dont want to stop this game.. Gos bless us all..

Some thoughts: 1.Admit it, terrorism generally works. Those you want to submit are afraid to oppose you.You win more members for your ranks due to the macabre nature of the results which fascinates young losers. 2. Humans are lazy cowards , thus terrorism dissuades them from studying and drawing their conclusions about whatever is driving the terrorism. (In this case reading the Quran would serve the purpose for example, something the average CNN viewer would never consider). 3 Add leftist media and political correctness on your side and the terrorists enjoy an easy romp to victory in a generation or 3. 4. Oh, having political leaders that you can lead by the nose is also useful.

Where is the daily disparging coverage condemning leftist islamofascism and a ban on muslim bombs ? You certainly harangued the public with anti-gun, anti right wing, pro muslim sympathy for a couple of weeks after the New Zealand attack. I get down deep inside you really hate true Christians and American citizens and American gun owners but couldn't you at least try to hide your obvious leftist bias and hatred. Now-a-days apparently you're proud of it.
