Sri Lanka Church Bombings Claimed by ISIS

The unadulterated and unfettered hate that inspires the evils of radical Islamic terrorism is like a fingerprint, or a signature; you know it as soon as you see it.

In Paris, Germany, and now Sri Lanka, the most vile actions taken by the most heinous international actors leave the entire world heartbroken and forlorn.  Now, with over 310 dead in Sri Lanka, terror organization ISIS is claiming responsibility.

Islamic State’s claim, issued on its AMAQ news agency, came shortly after Sri Lanka said two domestic Islamist groups, with suspected links to foreign militants, were believed to have been behind the attacks at three churches and four hotels, which wounded about 500 people.

In doing so, ISIS purported that the evil act was in retaliation for the Christchurch, New Zealand mosque attacks of last month, cementing global fears of a possible holy war on the horizon.

ISIS was unable to provide any proof of their involvement, however, the sophistication and coordination of the attack indicates a vast network of ne’er-do-wells is certainly at the heart of the matter.

The US is offering help to Sri Lankan investigators in the form of intelligence.

The Washington Post quoted an unidentified law enforcement official as saying Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agents were being sent to Sri Lanka to help with the investigation.

The FBI had offered expertise to test evidence and analysts were scouring databases for information, the Post said. Counter-terrorism officials from Britain were also due on Tuesday, a Western diplomat in Colombo said.

Sri Lankan authorities are also concerned that this may not be the end of the attacks, and are aggressively working to prevent further bloodshed.
