“Gunmen killed at least 27 people at a beachfront Tunisian hotel on Friday, the same day a terrorist lashed out brutally in France and a mosque in Kuwait was bombed,” cnn.com reports. “A woman from Wales [vacationing in Tunisia] told CNN’s Robyn Kriel that she saw bloodied bodies lying in the sand and people from neighboring hotels jumping over to fences to get to her hotel. She said she is staying about a mile from the main attack scene, but visitors there still took precautions by putting mattresses up against the door to slow any gunmen who might try to barge in.” Ah, the old mattress defense! Meanwhile . . .
The bloodshed comes the same day as at least two deadly terrorist attack in other countries.
One person was beheaded and two injured at a gas factory near Lyon in southeastern France, according to French President Francois Hollande. And ISIS has claimed responsibility for an apparent bomb blast at the Shiite-affiliated Al-Sadiq mosque in Kuwait’s capital during Friday prayers, leading to a number of death and injuries.
That would be the same Kuwait that’s busy disarming its citizens. And I mean door-to-door confiscation by government agents that started two days ago:
On Tuesday, a controversial new Kuwaiti law came into effect that will see citizens’ homes searched for unlicensed arms, ammunition and fireworks.
The Interior Ministry has pledged to “respect the customs of the people of Kuwait” in implementing the law, vowing to use female police officers when searching homes.
Clearly, attacks by Muslim extremists on the West are intensifying and, perhaps, coordinating. (As is their custom.) It’s only a matter of time before Caliphate-seeking criminals mount a major attack on an American “gun-free” zone, like the one at the Mumbai mall. What then?
