Sri Lankan intelligence reveals the mastermind behind suicide bombings…

While ISIS has claimed responsibility this morning for the Sunday bombings in Sri Lanka, intelligence officials in the grieving country don’t mention ISIS in their latest revelation about the mastermind behind the bombings.

Rather they point to an online Islamic clerick who believes all non-Muslims should die:

NY POST – A radical Islamic cleric who uses the burning Twin Towers as a backdrop to fiery online sermons has been named the mastermind behind the devastating Sri Lanka terror attacks, it was claimed Tuesday.

Sri Lankan intelligence has named local cleric Moulvi Zahran Hashim as being behind the coordinated suicide bombings on churches and hotels that killed at least 321 on Easter Sunday, according to The Telegraph.

He was already eyed for gaining thousands of online followers for hateful online sermons — some using the World Trade Center attacks as a backdrop, according to the report.

His name emerged in warnings earlier in April that radicals were planning attacks in the capital Colombo — weeks before the suicide bombings that, according to the report.

He began posting videos online three years ago calling for non-Muslims to be ‘eliminated,’ according to the Daily Mail.

Muslim leaders reportedly gave repeated warnings about him with no obvious response.

“Some of the intelligence people saw his picture but they didn’t take action,” N.M. Ameen, the president of the Muslim Council of Sri Lanka, told the Daily Mail.

Hilmy Ahamed, the Muslim council’s vice president, branded Hashim’s online speeches “basically a hate campaign against all non-Muslims.”

“Basically, he was saying non-Muslims have to be eliminated,” Ahamed told the Daily Mail.

Ahamed told The Telegraph, “We were very concerned that this guy was preaching hate on social media and uploading a lot of videos.”



The death toll has now reached over 320 and Sri Lankan officials, via the NY Post, are also saying this was retaliation for the mosque shootings in New Zealand:

The terror attacks that killed at least 321 people in Sri Lanka were “retaliation” for the mosque shootings in New Zealand, officials said Tuesday.

“The initial investigation has revealed that this was in retaliation for the New Zealand mosque attack,” junior minister for defense Ruwan Wijewardene insisted to parliament there.

He was referring to the March 15 massacre of 50 worshippers at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, by a white supremacist who live-streamed it to Facebook.

The death toll for Easter Sunday’s retaliation — where suicide bombers targeted three churches and three hotels in Sri Lanka’s capital Colombo — reached 321 by Tuesday with at least 500 injured.

Police revealed that 40 people have been arrested so far, with officials now blaming two local terror groups for the atrocity.

“It was done by the radical Islamic terror group National Thowheed Jamath along with JMI,” he said, referring to Jammiyathul Millathu Ibrahim.

Here’s the news that ISIS has stepped in and claimed responsibility:

So where are all the Democrats who were making hay over the New Zealand attacks because some crazy white guy(s) did it?

Do they only care about ‘White Supremacy?’

  1. islam is not the problem, we keep getting told. The terrorists, they assure us, had the “wrong interpretation” of their corano and are not true muslims. BS!! For their corano tells you the opposite! muslims will never tell the gullible unsuspecting non-muslim that there are 71 violent chapters (out of 114) that are directed at Jews, Christians, muslim hypocrites and others that are not believers. If the same gullible unsuspecting non-muslim pick up and read the corano, they will never ever defend muslims, let along islam,

  2. Don’t count on Hillary and Obama saying by name the word “Islamic Supremacist” which is what this guy is, nah, he is just “some guy who did something and got some other people to do something to Easter worshipers”….

  3. After New Zealand, you knew this was coming. Even without New Zealand, you knew this was coming. How do we stop it? We can’t. How do we do better? Stop supporting corrupt Middle East governments that preach hatred from birth against western values and absolutely ban aide to any country that builds Madrassas abroad – including Saudi Arabia.

    1. Easier said than done… Saudi, the cradle of this hate, is now a major US partner against Iran

  4. Social media makes it dirt simple to create a following. All you need is a willingness to lie, a schtick that appeals to dumb people, and enough energy to keep pushing out that lie, no matter how much resistance you get.

    It used to be a *lot* harder.

    Reverend Wright,
    Alex Jones,
    Bill Kristol,
    David Duke…

    All used that same basic trick, but without social media, they had to do things like start a church, start some sort of organization, or create a fringe media operation.

    With social media, you see nearly instantaneous outbreaks of “leaders.” Jihadist loons, campus feminists, Larry Hogan. Anyone can do it.

  9. I suppose this guy was never banned on any of those social media sites either? No vids taken down? In retaliation? Gee, I didn’t know that the shooter was Christian. Oh, wait…they don’t make those distinctions, they just lump us all together. Christianphobia.

  10. Islam and Christianity are destined to be battling each other until the end of the world. Our religions are half-brothers, Christianity comes from Isaac, Islam comes from Ishmael. God promised Abraham that his illegitimate son would be made into a powerful nation too, though he would have to abandon him in the wilderness. God kept his promise and from Ishmael came Mohammad, and from Mohammad came a new religion that would be taking turns with Christianity for who influences the world most for hundreds of years. They had their turn with the Ottoman Empire, and we’ve had our turn already. I believe our time is up. I honestly don’t give this nation or Western civilization more than 200 years, tops, before the Muslims take over again. And honestly we’ve been asking for it. We’ve had our chance to fix this corrupt, evil culture we live in. Islam will now wipe it from the face of the earth (as it should be) and replace it with it’s own, which, for a short time, at least, I think might actually be an improvement.

  11. “Basically, he was saying non-Muslims have to be eliminated,” Ahamed told the Daily Mail.

    So, he’s citing the Koran then.

  12. I heard everyone from Barack Obama to Hillary Clinton was calling the victims “Easter worshipers”. Not one mention that they were Christian. Of course, they were quick to point out that the people killed in the NZ mosque were all Muslim.

    The terror attacks that killed at least 321 people in Sri Lanka were “retaliation” for the mosque shootings in New Zealand, officials said Tuesday.

    So lets kill people who not only had nothing to do with it, but for something no Christians were even involved in. Nice use of critical thinking skills there.

    1. @watchman looks like Hildebeast is changing the dialog…”worshipers” aka CHRISTIANS – note…she spelled it wrong, too.

      Wonderful news: Three communities of worshippers in Louisiana have surpassed their fundraising goal to rebuild after their historically black churches were lost to arson. Thanks to everyone who contributed and spread the word.

    2. @watchman Everyone who doesn’t submit is the enemy. Jews and Christians first, of course.

      1. It amazes that without any official announcement they all get their marching orders and run with it, like a group of fish all swimming in the same direction. But then again they are collectivists, so it makes sense they are all single-minded.

  13. Sure it wasn’t a Hindu or Buddhist? Are we being too quick to blame the Religion of Peace here??

  14. The Loons in Congress here aren’t going to do a damn thing about the hate here. We have accepted them into the corrupt government and they aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. Obama and his Marxist Revolutionaries have made sure of that. We certainly don’t have anyone with any balls on the right to do anything either.

    1. @sjmom I heard on the radio this morning that there have been multiple arrests, I didn’t hear if they got him.

      1. @dr-strangelove Thanks. I hadn’t heard that but it’s good news. Hopefully, they will get him too since he’s the one inciting the hatred.

  15. I suppose this guy was never banned on any of those social media sites either? No vids taken down? In retaliation? Gee, I didn’t know that the shooter was Christian. Oh, wait…they don’t make those distinctions, they just lump us all together. Christianphobia.

  16. “They point to an online Islamic cleric who believes all non-Muslims should die.” But Christians are hateful? Because, like Christians are out blowing people up because they think non Christians should die. Don’t think that’s ever happened. Even the Crusades were about going back after what the muslims did to them.

    The people here in America need to stop bashing Christians and being silent on muslims. Like I said yesterday it came out as marching orders to call them Easter Worshipers. Why would Obama and Hillary use the exact same term that’s never been used before? Because they don’t want to admit muslims killed Christians? Last I checked Christians don’t worship Easter. We worship Christ who rose on Easter. I guess the Satan followers don’t understand that concept.

      1. As they should because these fargin iceholes (Ala Tony Moronie) said when the mosque was attacked in New Zealand that they stand with the muslim community. They won’t say that for Christians though.

      2. As they should be. The three churches were Catholic churches. Obola and Clinton don’t want to engender any sympathy for Catholics.

    1. It occurred to me that BHO’s and HRC’s use of the phrase “Easter Worshipers” was not only a slam on Christians but also Islamophobic. They, and all libs/Lefties, are afraid of Muslims and will do anything to appease them.

      1. @nc To be fair, my sister said that she was late getting home from church Sunday because of the Chreasters- the people who only come on Christmas and Easter.

      2. They’re right to be afraid. The Muslims are the fastest growing religious group in the world. The progressive left realizes that Islam is the future, and when they do finally squeeze us out, they want to be on the right side of things…

  17. Damn Amish, when will they stop the madness. Religion of peace, hah.
    As for the media response, “some people did something” but they’re petrified to say who because…Islamaphobia.

    1. You’d think the Amish wouldn’t be pulling stunts like this because of modern technology but we’re on to their ploy!

    2. Yep, they are just “some people that did something somewhere” which is what Illhan Omar would say.
