Islamic State Claims Responsibility For Terror Attack Against Christians In Sri Lanka

ISIS releases video of terrorists pledging allegiance to Abu Bakr al Baghdadi.

The Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the horrific anti-Christian terror attack in Sri Lanka that killed 321 people.

In a video, the attackers can be seen pledging their allegiance to ISIS ‘caliph’ Abu Bakr al Baghdadi:

“#BREAKING: ISIS releases video of Sri Lanka suicide bombers who conspired the 8 serial blasts in the island nation which killed 321 and injured more than 500 including several foreign nationals. Suicide bombers can be seen before the attack pledging their allegiance to Baghdadi.”

In a detailed series of tweets, journalist Rukmini Callimachi delved into more detail following ISIS’ claim of responsibility:

“The Islamic State’s news agency has claimed responsibility for the string of bombings in Sri Lanka which left 321 people dead. It’s taken them more than 2 days to do so, which is unusually long for ISIS”

“ISIS has just issued a longer press release on the Sri Lanka attack, in which it provides what it says are the noms de guerre of the 7 bombers: Abu Ubayda, Abu al-Mukhtar, Abu Khalil, Abu Hamza, Abu al-Baraa, Abu Muhammad and Abu Abdullah.”

“The reason that intelligence agencies believe the Sri Lankan attack is the handiwork of an international jihadist organization is because of its sheer sophistication: 6 sites in 3 cities hit by 7 suicide bombers. Nearly all of the explosive charges went off with deadly effect.”

“Even the attackers who were dispatched directly from Syria to attack Paris in 2015 were not as deadly. The suicide bomber who entered Paris’ Comptoir Voltaire killed only himself, for example. Death toll in Paris from 10 attackers was 130. Sri Lanka = 321.”

Sri Lankan authorities say their analysis points to the attack being ‘retaliation’ for the New Zealand mosque massacre:

“The initial investigation has revealed that this was in retaliation for the New Zealand mosque attack,” junior minister for defence Ruwan Wijewardene told parliament. He did not elaborate on why authorities believed there was a link to the killing of 50 people at two mosques in the New Zealand city of Christchurch during Friday prayers on March 15. A lone gunman carried out those attacks.”

45 children were killed in the attack.

Clearly, Christianity is under attack in much of the world, and Islamist terrorism remains a mortal threat to the civilized world.

If it weren’t the New Zealand mosque shooting, it would be something else. Their motto is: Find an excuse to kill people. Any old excuse will do.

I’ve been thinking (lol),and made up a new word. Christophobic. It has a

Since many are called Islamophobic I think it is time they call those attacking the Christians as Christophobic. I think then those attacked for their belief system could respond that the politicians , politically correct crowd, and fundamentalist bunch are …Christophobic. Hey spread around this word . It could save you from a law suit …Maybe!!!!!

That the Sri Lankan “authorities” are wrong in their assessment of “retaliation for Christchurch”! First, this kind of attack takes a long time in planning, financing, setting up the logistics and then executing! There was most likely help from the global terrorist network, from funding, to coordinating the materiel used for the attacks, the “recruitment” of the bombers, the transportation of all the elements to perpetrate the attack and then the coordination of the timings and execution of the attacks! It was a sophisticated and coordinated attack and would have been planned long before Christchurch! Furthermore, it was reported that… Read more »

Here is another link to the Sri Lanka attacks, stating that foreign governments warned Colombo of potential attacks more than two weeks ago; https://news.yahoo.com/calculated-attack-christianity-153949081.html

I’ll bet Turdo has that “pull start” gear in his costume trunk, right next to his Bollywood rags.

Christchurch attack was two months ago.
Sri Lanka church bombers started planning three months ago.
These terrorists are not only vicious, they are psychic too.
