Chaos in Sri Slanka as death toll from Easter massacre rises again to 215

The death toll from the seven explosions that ripped through Sri Lanka’s churches and hotels on Easter Sunday has shot up again to 215 with 500 injured. Among the dead are scores of tourists, believed to be American, British, Dutch, Danish, Chinese, Japanese, Pakistani, Moroccan and Indian. They have not been identified. No organization has taken responsibility for the atrocity. After an emergency cabinet meeting in Colombo, investigators were still groping in the dark, although Indian sources say the multiple attack on Christian worship, including at least two suicide attacks, bears all the hallmarks of the Islamic State,

The cabinet in emergency session initially responded by imposing a night curfew on all parts of Sri Lanka and shutting down access to the social media, in an attempt to restore a semblance of control. By afternoon, the government ordered all universities closed until further notice and the mail rail service suspended, apparently in expectation of more attacks. The defense ministry reported a raid on a home and the arrest of 7 people suspected of planning and executing the terrorist attacks. This report was greeted with general skepticism as an attempt to prove the authorities were in control.

Sri Lanka is an Indian Ocean island-state and a popular tourist destination, with a population of 22 million, 70pc of whom are Buddhists, 13pc Hindus, 10pc Muslims and just over 7pc Christian.

Shocked condemnations, condolences and offers of assistance have poured in from world leaders.

    It’s a shame we can’t learn and embrace our differences. Instead, we get this. I wonder what kind of people could be responsible for such things……

      I think it’s very clear who is responsible. The religion of peace. Or as Ilan Omar says…”some people did something”

      Christians will soon be beheaded all over the world for refusing the ‘Mark of the Beast’ implant in order to buy and sell. Most lukewarm Christians will take it because they have sin in their life and do not have a daily relationship with Jesus. It will take great faith to refuse it!

      It is not through War and Celebrity that G-d has most advanced His Will. It is through the Commonplace of Abraham’s Teachings how human must get along to survive together and among one another.

    Direct quote Twitter respondent from Sri-Lanka to the prime minister:

    “The terrorist bombings in Sri-Lanka have put the spotlight on an Islamic group, Thowheed Jama’ath, which includes Syria jihad returnees. Foreign intelligence had warned Sri Lanka that Thowheed Jama’ ath planned to bomb prominent churches and the Indian High commission.”

    Muslims have control over 56 countries. That is way too much. If they can’t overhaul their “religion” to erase the jihad and the Jew hate and hate for all non-believers contained in it, then free countries should ban that terrorism “religion” and the people who believe in it must be happy with living among their own to prevent them from killing their religious targets.

    Peace can only come when the Messiah returns and destroys ROSH and its supporters including Persia.

    The Philippines could be next. God is just waiting for the numbers of martyrs to be filled, then vengeance it will be (Revelation). We are in the Tribulation period of the last days. More, much more horrible events are coming in the way of those who believe in Jesus. The persecutions will continue. Martyrdom will abound. Salvation is near for those who walk in Jesus and die in His name. The enemies of God, those who spit on the face of Jesus and Mother Mary will be annihilated. The Son of God is coming back. Alleluia!!
