    • “Intelligence officials in Sri Lanka warned that terrorist elements, including the radical Islamic organization NTJ, would carry out a suicide attack in certain churches during Easter.

      In the terror attack this morning, at least 150 people were killed and more than 400 wounded during Easter Sunday prayers. Dozens of victims were evacuated to hospitals in the capital Colombo.

      A source in the Sri Lankan security services, who spoke with the Associated Press, reported that six explosions occurred almost simultaneously. According to him, a suspicion that suicide bombers blew themselves up at the entrance to the churches is being investigated. About four hours later another blast was heard in Dehiwela, a suburb of the city of Colombo, in which at least two other people were killed.

      Among the dead are 35 foreigners, including French, Americans and Dutch.

      The Israeli consul in India, Eli Sneh, said that at this stage there are no known Israeli casualties in the Sri Lanka attacks.”

      “The alert was sent by Pujuth Jayasundara on April 11, AFP reported. It said that Sri Lankan authorities had received a tip from a foreign intelligence service, warning of bomb threat posed by a radical group.

      “A foreign intelligence agency has reported that the NTJ (National Thowheeth Jama’ath) is planning to carry out suicide attacks targeting prominent churches as well as the Indian High Commission in Colombo,” the alert said, as quoted by the news agency.”

    Over 160 people have been killed and at least 370 people have been injured following several explosions at churches and hotels in Sri Lanka.

    • Will there be an outpouring of sympathy for the Christians,a rush to “protect” the churches,new draconian laws to disarm everybody,and make sure no-one says anything “hurtful”about the Christians?

      • Their shutting down the media is to keep the people from retaliating they claim. Here’s from 2018 after a riot: Social media networks including WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram were blocked in parts of the country in an effort to prevent mobs from organizing their attacks and spreading propaganda.

        No, there will not, because this catastrophe was probably just an accident or two, just like the drama at Notre Dame de Paris.

        As we speak, the NZ Prime Minister, Jacinta Ardern is preparing her latest Hijab, to wear in solidarity with her protegés who are sooooo frightened of that back-lash that hardly ever comes.

        And, contrary to some rumours, the Pope does have an alibi, he was snogging the feet of some muslims and assorted jihadis as Christians and other Non-Muslim were torn to pieces by these latest nothingtodowithislam accidents . (Incidentally, the feet-snogger’s comments on Notre Dame came long after the POTUS and even Putin had already expressed their commisseration.

        Arrrrrgggggghhhhhhh !!!

        • The summer of 2019 is probably going to be a very violent summer, the violent portion of the Islamic Conquest is attacking Christianity around the world. They are taking off their masks and are showing their true selfs and intent. The alternative media is doing its best to get the facts out for the public, which is a lot more then the Propaganda Media is going to do.

          It looks like 2019 will be the year that the left and the Moslems show the world what they are capable of doing in their quests to conquer the world.

  2. Let’s watch the establishment media twist the story and juxtapose their reporting against the Christchurch shooting.

    The Sri Lankan attack appears to be a well planed and sophisticated attack by a group.

  3. Oh no, time to trot out the Muslims fear a backlash story ( for the 100th time ).
    Next that interview with a Muslim who now feels uncomfortable living in the West.
    Then the bacon on a Mosque story.

    Next week in the UK, young blacks knifing each other to death in inner cities, followed by the A level student turning his life around, followed by a interview with a ex black gang leader now running a youth club, then the vague solutions (ignoring the world wide problem, only mediated by the range of weapons available), with lots of mentions of injustice.

    Then the rise of the right story, with an interview with someone who never killed anyone.

    So it goes on.

  5. Sri Lanka’s Police Chief Warned About Deadly Attacks 10 Days Before – Reports (sputniknews, Apr 21, 2019)

    “”A foreign intelligence agency has reported that the NTJ (National Thowheeth Jama’ath) is planning to carry out suicide attacks targeting prominent churches as well as the Indian high commission in Colombo”, it reportedly read.

    Multiple blasts hit several Catholic churches and hotels in the island nation on Easter Day, reportedly taking the lives of 185 people and wounding some 500 more. The police source told AP that authorities suspect that at least two of the blasts were carried out by suicide bombers.

    Sri Lankan Police Chief Pujuth Jayasundara alerted top officers on 11 April that radical Islamists were planning to hit prominent churches, AFP reports, citing the corresponding warning.

    “A foreign intelligence agency has reported that the NTJ (National Thowheeth Jama’ath) is planning to carry out suicide attacks targeting prominent churches as well as the Indian high commission in Colombo”, it reportedly read.

    The NTJ is a radical Muslim group in Sri Lanka that came into the spotlight after it was linked to vandalism of Buddhist monuments in the country, where Buddhism is the predominant religion.

    On Easter Sunday, eight blasts ripped through the country’s capital Colombo and nearby towns, hitting several hotels and churches during mass. The latest reports say that the blasts killed at least 185 people and injured 500 more. Some 35 victims are foreigners, including British, Dutch, and American citizens. The source in the police told AP that authorities suspect at least two of the blasts were caused by suicide bombers.”

  6. Picking Christian churches during a time of peak attendance?

    Burning down shrine after shrine?

    Openly celebrating these insults to humanity?

    Too simple, really. When those that birth these cretins begin perishing in large numbers, there may emerge a glimmer of hope for meaningful change. Until then?


    War ALWAYS involves loss of life. Why should Unbelievers tolerate this constant predation upon our flanks and pretend that retaliation is impossible because there are no uniformed officers to blame?

    In case no one’s noticed, ISLAM HAS OPENLY CALLED FOR TOTAL WAR and there’s no longer much choice about responding with anything less than TOTAL WAR.

    This current flaccidity WILL RESULT IN NUCLEAR REPRISAL. Only immediate reciprocity in a (disproportionately) scaled manner has any hope of averting hundreds of millions of deaths.

    Pissant turban-kissers like Micron DO NOT hold the keys to THIS kingdom. And Islam clearly requires having some large parcels blown to kingdom-come before the Muslim Mule purchases a clue.

    Ever since the 9-11 Atrocity, Islam has been prodding the world into a pragmatic corner of: PAY ME NOW OR PAY ME LATER. The Western World has paid forward to Civilization in unimaginable ways. Now it’s time for pay-backs and they are going to be a Made in America, cast iron bitch.

  7. Suicide bombers kill 207 in Easter Sunday terror attack on Christians in Sri Lanka: Terrorists hit churches and five-star hotels leaving Americans and Britons among the dead as TV chef and her daughter are named as first victims

    At least 207 people have died after suspected suicide bombers blew up churches and five-star hotels in an Easter Sunday terror attack in Sri Lanka.

    The eight blasts today ripped through landmarks around Colombo and on Sri Lanka’s east coast, targeting Christians, hotel guests and foreign tourists, leaving at least 450 people wounded, and killing three British citizens, and two UK-US dual citizens.

    Six bombs went off in quick succession before another two blasts two hours later in Sri Lanka’s worst violence since the end of its decades-long civil war in 2009.

    Sri Lanka’s foreign ministry says three British nationals, and two holding US and British nationalities, were among 11 foreigners confirmed dead in the Easter blasts, and other victims include three Indians, one Portuguese national, and two Turkish nationals.

    As details of the horror emerged today, TV chef Shantha Mayadunne and her London-based daughter Nisanga were among the first victims named.

    Meanwhile a manager at the Cinnamon Grand hotel in Colombo said the attacker had set off the horrific explosion in a packed restaurant at 8.30am, after waiting in a queue for a breakfast buffet.

    Seven suspects have been arrested, as it emerged the country’s police chief had warned of an Islamic extremist plot to target ‘prominent churches’ just 10 days earlier, but no group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack.

    Sri Lanka’s defence ministry has now ordered curfew with immediate effect ‘until further notice’ while access to social media messaging services has been shut down.

  8. Two Suicide Bombers Behind Sri Lanka Blasts Identified As Zahran Hashim, Abu Mohammed

    […]Though, the true motive behind the attack remains a mystery given so far no individual or terrorist group has claimed responsibility for the shocking attacks, as of now, two suicide bombers have been identified as Zahran Hashim and Abu Mohammed.


    • Sri Lanka bomber queued at hotel buffet then unleashed devastation

      Carrying a plate, the man, who had registered at the hotel the night before as Mohamed Azzam Mohamed, was just about to be served when he set off his devastating strike.

      The suicide bomber waited patiently in a queue for the Easter Sunday breakfast buffet at Sri Lanka’s Cinnamon Grand hotel before setting off explosives strapped to his back.

      Carrying a plate, the man, who had registered at the hotel the night before as Mohamed Azzam Mohamed, was just about to be served when he set off his devastating strike in the packed restaurant, a manager at the Sri Lankan hotel said.

      “There was utter chaos,” said the manager, who spoke to AFP on condition ..

      The Taprobane restaurant at the hotel was having one of its busiest days of the year for the Easter holiday weekend.

      “It was 8:30 am and it was busy. It was families,” the manager told AFP.

      “He came up to the top of the queue and set off the blast,” he added.

      “One of our managers who was welcoming guests was among those killed instantly.”

      The bomber also died. Parts of his body were found intact by police and taken away.

      Other hotel officials told how the bomber, a Sri Lankan, checked in giving an address that turned out to be false, saying he was in the city for business.

      Two other hotels, the Shangri-La and the Kingsbury, were hit at about the same time, along with three churches packed with worshippers attending Easter Sunday services.

      The blast at St Anthony’s Shrine, an historic Catholic Church, was so powerful that it blew out much of the roof, leaving roof tiles, glass and splintered wood littering the floor that was strewn with bodies.

      Authorities have not said who staged the attacks. But all suffered major casualties and damage. Many of the 35 foreigners killed in the blasts were at the hotels, officials said.

      “There was utter chaos, but we rushed all the injured to hospital in a very short time,” the Cinnamon Grand manager said.

      “About 20 people were seriously wounded and we sent them to the National Hospital.”

      The hotel is close to the Sri Lankan prime minister’s official residence and Special Task Force commandos were quickly at the scene.

      At the Shangri-La, witnesses said they heard two loud blasts and that staff reported some people had been killed. But details of the toll were not immediately given.

      An AFP photographer saw extensive damage in the second floor restaurant at the hotel, with windows blown out and electrical wires hanging from the ceiling.

      The Shangri-La said in a statment that the bomb hit at approximately 9:00 am local time at its Table One restaurant.

      “We are deeply saddened and shocked by the incident and our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the casualties and those who have been affected,” it said.

      “Our immediate priority is to look after the safety and wellbeing of all involved. A Shangri-La crisis management team has been activated to provide all necessary support.”

      The Kingsbury is also one of Colombo’s most expensive hotels, positioned near the city’s World Trade Center.

      The toll there was not known.

      In a statement on its Facebook page, the hotel said: “On behalf of the entire Kingsbury team we share in the shock, grief and mourning of our entire nation in the aftermath of the recent attack.”

      “Medical evacuation and treatment of the injured guests and employees were handled immediately.” The hotel said it had been “isolated” for further safety checks.


      • Similar to the August 2001 Sbarro pizza bomber going to the most crowded part of the queue before impact. His accomplice has a radio show in Jordan.
        This mayhemand death is a reminder that the ND fire was anything but a terrorist plot.

    • When will these idiots realize that following islam removes any possible conscience and creates subhumans and that pacifism and forgiveness towards muslims betrays any possible connection to a decent caring god. These, wonderful in theory, concepts do NOT work when you deal with criminals or fanatics. Must we wait another 500 years until someone realizes this? We don’t have 50 years this time, let alone 500
