This morning we awoke to the news of a deadly terrorist attack in Brussels. Isis claimed responsibility for the bombings at the airport and the Metro station. The death toll stands at 34, with more than 200 injured.
The attacks were a show of strength in response to the capture of one of the murderers in the Paris attacks last November, Salah Abdeslam, on Saturday. The Muslim residents of the Molenbeek area of Brussels have harbored the fugitive terrorist for most of the four months since the attack. Molenbeek has long been considered a “no-go” area of Brussels. Civil authorities fear to enter the area, where the Muslim residents have established a state- within-a-state ruled under Sharia law by an assortment of Muslim terrorists who are held in high esteem by their community. The area is an active recruitment base for ISIS.

More explosive devices reportedly were turned up Tuesday as police raided homes throughout Belgium in a desperate manhunt for a third suspect believed to have survived the morning’s coordinated bombings in Brussels, where at least 34 people were killed.
Included in the haul were several unexploded devices, NBC reported. CBS reported two more devices had been found . . .
Abdeslam reportedly stayed in Schaerbeek, the neighborhood where the unexploded bomb and chemicals were reportedly found, for up to three weeks after he fled Paris in November. A more middle-class community than the infamous Muslim enclave of Molenbeek, the western portion of Schaerbeek is home to a large population of Turkish and Morrocan immigrants.
While some left wing politicians have blamed the attacks on the West, other commentators who are known to be left-of-center have started to at least notice a pattern behind the attacks. Notably, Piers Morgan, and the hosts of “The View”, had surprisingly positive things to say about Donald Trump following the attack. So if the murderous muslim savages had the objective of getting Trump elected US President, they’ve certainly hit on an effective strategy.
Our Lame uck took 51 seconds out of his busy schedule in Havana to make some remarks on the topic before attending a baseball game, but I honestly can’t remember anything he said.
