May 21st 2017 was truly a historic day. It was a historic day due to President Trump's deliverance of his speech in Saudi Arabia to leaders from some fifty Muslim Nations. The President's speech was the essence of which great leaders are made. Shortly after the President's speech, the United Arab Emirates' foreign minister, Anwar Gargash, tweeted "Bravo President Trump". He also described the speech as "effective and historic". "Effective and historic", it was indeed. President Trump dared to say what no other had. In an effort to bring 50 Muslim nations together against terrorism, the President offered his thoughts on how Muslim leaders might aid in the fight against terrorism. "Drive them out of your places of worship. Drive them out of your communities. Drive them out of your Holy Land. And drive them out of this earth."
As so it would seem, President Trump accomplished the impossible. He had proven himself to be successful in convincing some 50 Muslim leaders that together we could defeat terrorism. Only days after the President's all historic speech against terrorism, yet another horrific terrorist attack was to take place. On Monday, May 22nd, a suicide bomber attacked the Manchester Arena where an Ariana Grande concert was taking place. A total of 22 people were killed, most under the age of 16. The youngest, was a girl of only 8 years old. Another 59 people were said to be injured. Unbeknownst to many, the Manchester bombing was the 30,874th attack, since September 11th 2001. The attack showed the world that the caliphate is winning the war against the infidels. The Manchester bomber's goal was to kill as many people as possible. He was successful. He was also successful in overshadowing the Saudi Summit where President Trump had made history. Sadly, it made it almost insignificant. Perhaps the Manchester bomber's purpose was to do more than kill innocents. Perhaps his purpose was to show the world that President Trump's all historic speech against terrorism may have well been ever so powerful and moving, but it was also ineffective. The Manchester bomber showed the world, terrorism is winning.
Radical Islam is winning. The infidels are losing. When we are no longer to live our lives for fear of a terrorist attack occurring, the terrorists are winning. Exactly one day after President Trump's anti terrorism speech was given, another deadly terrorist attack took place. Hours prior to the Manchester Arena attack, warnings were given on Twitter by at least two separate accounts. If Muslims predominately are a peaceful lot, why is that not one Muslim came forward with the information of the warnings? For that matter, if the intelligence of the U.K.were worth a grain a salt, why did they not pick up on the chatter of an impending attack? Then again, the liberal leaders probably would not want to offend the Muslim community. Yes, I suppose it's far better to watch children die and suffer than to be politically incorrect and arrest a possible terrorist or terrorists. The Manchester bomber was on a watch list.He had traveled to Libya and stayed for three long weeks. He was a soldier of ISIS. He slipped right through the cracks and was able to conduct his jihad. Evidently, the intelligence for the U.K. failed to "watch" the 22 year old Manchester bomber. Suffice it to say, the families and victims of the Manchester Arena attack should have one hell of a lawsuit against their government. Their government failed to protect them. Their government failed them.
The fact of the matter is, everyone's government is failing to protect them. Last June, Omar Mateen shot and killed over 100 people in a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida. The attack could have been and should have been prevented. Mateen had been investigated by the FBI. Mateen had been interviewed by the FBI twice. Mateen had also pledged his allegiance to ISIS. Our government failed all those affected by the Orlando shooting, just as the Government of the U.K. failed those affected in the Manchester bombing. With some 700k people on the terror watch list here in the U.S. we the people have to ask just what in hell are authorities waiting for? Another 9/11? An attack worse than 9/11? Just what will it take?
It is my fear that the flood gates of hell have been opened. Who opened them? Our leaders. Our leaders opened the gates of hell and they are to blame for every terrorist act that is and has been committed. Since 9/11/01 there have been 30,881 terrorist attacks we know of to date. In the last 30 days there have been 165 Islamic terror attacks in some 25 countries, killing 1008 people and injuring another 1041 people. We are not winning the war on terrorism. We are not even close to winning the war on terrorism. We are in fact losing the war on terrorism.
While the President's speech on defeating terrorism in Saudi Arabia gave hope to those leaders in attendance and many who watched in awe, it did not reach out to those Muslims who have a desire to kill non-Muslims. The reality is, the world has changed, and not for the better. Leaders around the world have literally opened the gates of hell with their open borders and the people have died and suffered for it. America voted for President Trump on his campaign promise to closing our borders and keeping radical Muslims out of our country. Lest President Trump not forget his campaign promise with his new found admiration and respect for Muslim leaders who seem to also want to defeat terrorism. It is radical Muslims who want to kill us. It is radical Muslims who set out to steal the show out from under President Trump. It is radical Muslims who turned the media's attention away from the success in Saudi Arabia to the mayhem of death and violence in Manchester.
