Yesterday, while US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson hosted 68 nations for the Global Coalition to Counter ISIS, terrorists launched an attack just outside the Palace of Westminster (the British parliament). Though no group has officially taken responsibility for the attack, ISIS representatives in London have previously made statements such as:
“Our message is deadly, we are calling for world domination,
and for Shariah for the UK.”
“This one’s actually the flag of the Islamic State, so one day
when the Sharia comes, you will see this black flag everywhere.”
“The black flag of Islam will one day fly high over 10 Downing Street.
That’s a very real, real possibility the way Muslims are coming forward in
“We can expect more carnage in this country.”
It is now reported that at least 5 were killed and over 40 injured in the London attack.
While attacks were happening, 68 world leaders, including Muslim nations intent on stopping ISIS, met in Washington DC. It is believed to be the largest group ever to convene in an effort to defeat terrorism. Those talks continue through today, after which general details will likely be released to the media.
Meanwhile, I want to direct you to an excellent commentary on the threat of terrorism, provided by Joel Rosenberg in an interview with ABC News. It is a 30-minute piece, but very informative and thought-provoking. I hope you’ll take some time to review it.
