I woke up this morning to the news that a bomb has gone off in NYC injuring dozens of people. Then I discovered that Muslims are starting to celebrate that people were maimed. Social media is abuzz with these celebrations with one even mentioning ‘lions of the caliphate’. The Lions of the Caliphate was a foreign fighter group based in Latakia and led by Egyptian, Abu Muadh al-Masri. In November 2013 they pledged to the Islamic State. We only have people on social media attributing it to ‘lions of caliphate’ but it’s probably more figurative comment than literal.
This rush to celebrate Saturday night’s explosion in the Chelsea neighborhood that injured at least 29 people has got a lot of people upset. While no official group has claimed the explosion it stands to reason that the people of the State of Islam hope it’s from one of theirs:
“The lions of the Caliphate roar in New York, we cause you pain inside your house, the carrier of the Cross,” wrote one Twitter user who went by the name “I am ISIS, come and block me.” The account was soon suspended. Another, called “The Lone Wolves,” tweeted with the Arabic hashtag #ExplosionManhattanNewYork “Oh God burn America, take revenge in the name of your oppressed slaves and believers’ blood.”
Others tweeted about “good tidings that keep coming” from New York, and one user affiliated with al-Qaeda in Syria tweeted: “Oh God go against America, the head of infidels. Oh God, count them and kill them one by one, and do not spare anyone of them.”…
Others raised concerns, tweeted that the explosion was “another pretext for America to intervene in another country” and that ‘the dog Trump will blame the Muslims in order to win the elections, an expected scenario”.
It takes a sick sick culture to celebrate the maiming of people. The State of Islam IS a group of really sick people who pleasure in the torture of people and animals.
