So apparently it's IS and they are using a local name as cover. Not really a local issue hence so unexpected albeit the Police knew something was up.

I guess we could never hope that they would just go away after the caliphate fell.

Are you suggesting that these Muslims weren't from Ski Lanka? If not I think the distinction of whether the bombing group and planners called themselves IS or Fred West is hardly important.

They were Sri Lankan nationals.

BBC are saying this is bollox and IS are just trying to claim the glory of it.

Please stop trying to excuse terrorism.

What point are they making?
I find this artical a bit strange like there is an underlying point they are trying to make.

I think the Sri Lankan government is looking for foreign scapegoats to avoid their own failures.

Educated in the UK and Australia is one comment do they have proof he was radicalised here? It wouldn't surprise me but a little evidence might help.

 


One more point

One bomber educated in the UK.

In January the Telegraph reported our universities to be riddled with hateful preachers ( and that's not including all the feminists)

The problem starts with words...And comes to fruition in a church in Sri Lanka

We should de-platform Islamic hate preachers until they show respect to gays, women, non-believers and apostates.

You have a strange idea about the difference between excusing terrorism and understanding it

This is worrying for many reasons. Not the usual petty criminals who get radicalised. Very organised, middle class and educated. No apparent connection to any earlier problems locally. Whilst the Sri Lanka Government isnít always reliable in its communication, it also seems likely the bombers had been trained by experienced jihadists.

Why you are surprised about the middle class when Pew data tells us about mainstream attitudes and common sense should tell you that's inclusive of all classes.....Indeed, militant Islam includes intelligent people and is independent of class, anyone who read 'Dabiq' could instantly see that it's about ideology and that well educated people are also a part of the landscape.

Sri Lanka is about 9 percent Islamic.....That's why the attack happened. It's a numbers game.....and if you look at a demographics world map of where attacks occur and what the demographics are....that's the real world conclusion.

So the Sri Lanka attacker studied in UK. How many more of these radicals do we have in this country and does the left (or Tories) even care?

I think it's interesting in itself that you are looking for the article to draw some conclusions for you. I agree that's what you would expect but this actually looks like a very rare but genuine attempt at journalism by the Guardian. Expect normal service to resume though.

Journalism is to educate, what has the guardian tought me? That we have foreign students? Or is the darling lefty guardian stirring up hatred,
What would people think if tommy robinson wrote that artical?
