Stand by Belgium! Stand up to terrorism!

There can be no one who was not shocked when they turned on their televisions this morning to see the terrorist attacks carried out on Brussels Airport and one their Metro stations. Dozens killed and more injured.

Islamist fascism at work again.

The BBC reports:

The Islamic State (IS) group said it was behind the attacks in a statement issued on the IS-linked Amaq agency.

Belgium has raised its terrorism alert to its highest level. Three days of national mourning have been declared.

Prime Minister Charles Michel called the latest attacks "blind, violent and cowardly", adding: "This is a day of tragedy, a black day... I would like to call on everyone to show calmness and solidarity".

Whilst most people will have been thinking of the victims and their families there was the inevitable disgraceful comments from sections of the pro-Islamic left.

The reaction of George Galloway was reported by the London Evening Standard:

Mr Galloway tweeted within minutes of the explosions that the “monstrous extremism” was a creation of western interventions in Afghanistan and the Middle East.

“The monster which has slain and maimed so many innocent people today was created by us as surely as Dr Frankenstein created his,” alleged the former MP who is now standing for Mayor of London under the Respect banner.

This is absolute nonsense. Islamic Jihadism was created under the so-called "Prophet" himself, a warlord who imposed his twisted faith on others by the sword as did his followers over the centuries.

The problem is religious extremism, with a huge pool of sympathetic intolerance and fanaticism held by a far from small proportion of the followers of the "religion of war".

Fanatics exist within  every religion, but for the most other religions have grown up and adapted to the modern age. Islam remains medieval in it's outlook and practices.

Just look at Saudi Arabia and Iran, two competing wings of Islam. They are both murderous and oppressive regimes. ISIS and their ilk are just an extension of this barbarity.

Just ask the Yazadi's, the Kurds, women, gays and others who have to live daily under Sharia, most of which is made up to suit their various leaders interests.

Time for the world, especially the West to wake up.

There IS an enemy within.
