REPORT: Sri Lankan Authorities Believe Islamist Terror Group Perpetrated Horrific Easter Terror Attack Against Christians

The death toll has now climbed to at least 290 people.

Sri Lankan authorities have made 24 arrests in connection to the horrific Easter Sunday bombings in the city of Colombo.

The bombings targeted Christians, with three churches and three hotels devastated by suicide bombers.

Now, Sri Lankan authorities are saying they believe that National Thowheed Jamath – an Islamist terror group – is behind the bombings. Sri Lankan Health Minister Rajitha Senaratne told reports that the government believes the group is responsible for the attacks.

According to the Wall Street Journal, “Police said they discovered 87 detonators, apparently abandoned, at a private bus stand in the capital. The government has ordered round-the-clock security at all churches.”

As of yet, no group has claimed responsibility for the terror attack.

Adding an even more horrific detail to the already brutal act of terror, Sri Lankan authorities say the attackers put metal balls onto the bombs, in an effort to inflict even more serious injuries beyond the initial bomb blasts.

This brutal terror attack is yet another reminder of the fact that Islamist terrorism remains a serious threat, and that Christianity remains the most oppressed faith on Earth, two things most politicians and ‘leaders’ don’t have the guts to say.

Amazing how the politicians around the world declared their undying solidarity with Muslims around the world, In the wake of Christchurch, but nary a peep about Sri Lanka, other than the mandatory expressions of condolences, they are expected to make… no outrage…

When you remove all the politics and spin from horrific terrorist stories like this one in Sri Lanka,there can only be one explanation for all of these senseless murders and destruction. It is usually muslim terrorists. After all, who has the most hatred for christians, usually muslim terrorists, their followers and supporters. It is bad enough already that in the west christians are ridiculed, dismissed as ignorant people, unwilling to accept secularism , but we haven’t yet reached the point where we are targeted for murder and having our churches bombed. Even still, leaders such as Trudeau will not give… Read more »
