Saudis Bomb Churches in Sri Lanka

I admit the above headline is unfair. There is no evidence the medieval Saudis are responsible for the deadly terrorist suicide bombings in Sri Lanka. 

Blame for the attacks was put on the National Thowheed Jamath, although so far nobody has claimed responsibility and the Islamic group denies it was involved. 

If National Thowheed Jamath is responsible, then we can say with a fair degree of accuracy Saudi Arabia is an accomplice—it has long supported, encouraged, indoctrinated, and “radicalized” Sunni Islamic groups. 

The modus operandi of this attack—coordinated attacks on Christians, Buddhists, Hindus, Shi’a Muslims, anybody who is not a crazed and violent Salafist—is a hallmark of al-Qaeda and Islamic State terrorism inspired by the Wahhabi cult. 

Not that we should expect “professional journalists” at The Washington Post and The New York Times to make such a connection. They’re too busy reading and repeating official government scripts.
