“The supporter claimed to have received a message from an Isis militant to the group’s supporters in Belgium reading: ‘We have come to you with slaughter.'” Muhammad once said to the pagan Arabs of Mecca: “Will you listen to me, O Quraysh? By him who holds my life in His hand, I bring you slaughter.” (Ibn Ishaq 131) Not that this has anything to do with, you know, Islam or anything like that.
“It said Belgium was targeted as ‘a country participating in the international coalition against the Islamic State.'” So if you resist, you will be hit. And if you don’t resist, you will be hit. Better to resist.
“Isis claims responsibility for Brussels attacks ‘in revenge for Belgium’s air strikes on militants in Syria and Iraq,'” by Lizzie Dearden, Independent, March 22, 2016:
A wave of bombings that killed at least 30 people in Brussels was carried out by Isis militants, the group has claimed.
In a statement released through one of its propaganda outlets, the so-called Islamic State said “explosive belts and devices” were used to massacre passengers checking in at Brussels Airport and on a Metro train.
“Islamic State fighters opened fire inside Zaventem Airport, before several of them detonated their explosive belts, as a martyrdom bomber detonated his explosive belt in the Maalbeek Metro station,” a spokesperson said.
The group claimed that the attacks left more than 230 dead and wounded, although Belgian authorities put the figure slightly lower at at least 31 killed and under 200 injured.
It said Belgium was targeted as “a country participating in the international coalition against the Islamic State”.
The timing of the attacks, coming days after the arrest of Paris attacks suspect Salah Abdeslam was considered significant but no mention of the captured militant was made.
As the death toll rose amid continuing rescue operations, Isis supporters were championing the attacks on Twitter.
“What a beautiful day today,” one man wrote, calling the victims “Belgium supporters” who did not count as civilians.
“F***. Belgium Belgium wanted to bomb the Islamic state Now enjoy what your hands have sown.
“A lot of duas [prayers] were answered today.”
