You probably know by now about the bombings in Sri Lanka, unless you watch CNN or MSNBC or read the NYT or the WaPo. The death toll has now risen to 290, with another 500 injured. The Sri Lankan government was warned on April fourth that a radical Islamic group, National Thowheeth Jama’ath, was planning terrorist attacks at prominent churches in the region, but for some strange reason, they did not follow up on the tip.
Meanwhile, Al Jazeera, the terrorist’s CNN, says that reporting on the terror attack is Islamaphobia. Al Jazeera is owned by the country of Qatar, a state sponsor of terrorism. Soon, I expect Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib to hold a fundraiser to cover the legal fees of the attackers. One terrorist will not need a defense fund. As the police were questioning him, he set off a bomb that killed him and three police officers.
Al-Jazeera reporter Saif Khalid declared on Twitter that reporting the facts about the Easter terror attacks in Sri Lanka is “Islamophobic.”
Suicide bombers killed at least 200 Christians and injured 450 more in eight blasts on Easter Sunday. The attacks took place mainly at hotels and churches in Sri Lanka.
As the world watched for more information about who could have committed such a heinous and atrocious act, Khalid scolded an Indian newspaper for reporting the name of one of the suspects and details about a previous plot to bomb Indian High Commission in Colombo that intelligence sources believe he may have been involved in.

Eight people have been arrested so far for the attacks. The suspects have been described as “religious extremists” by Sri Lanka’s Defense Minister Ruwan Wijewardene.
