Reuters: Islamic State supporters celebrate Manchester attack

CAIRO (Reuters) - Islamic State supporters celebrated on social media on Tuesday after a blast at a concert venue in the north of England killed at least 19 people, although the militant Islamist group has not formally claimed responsibility.

British police have said they are treating the blast at the Manchester Arena at the end of a concert by U.S. singer Ariana Grande as a "terrorist incident". More than 50 people were wounded.

Twitter accounts affiliated to Islamic State have used hashtags referring to the blast to post celebratory messages, with some users encouraging similar attacks elsewhere.

Some messages described the attack as an act of revenge in response to air strikes in Iraq and Syria.

I suspect that this is will be the new norm, we in the West will just have to get use to it, as we see more of this. The political will to deal with the problem and make the hard choices is non-existent. I can just imagine the apologists in the centers of power and media falling all over themselves not to look Islamophobic, instead of instead of dealing with the problem. So we may as well get use to this happening more, all over the west.

Yes, because political correctness is really what is holding back the Western World in destroying terrorism and groups like Daesh.



I agree that the PC culture in dealing with terrorism needs to go, and a hardline stance needs to be taken. But that's just one step, of many. You make it sound like its an easy thing to do, to 'stop' these terrorist events from happening. No it isn't.
