ISIS Claims Credit for Brussels Terror Attack, Washington Does Nothing

BRUSSELS – ISIS has struck again in Europe. Bombs went off in Brussels at the airport and a subway station in Belgium’s capital. At least 30 people were killed and about 230 more were injured. Europe has been caught sleeping again, mere months after the Paris attacks.

We know Belgium has been going after terrorist attack plans ever since Paris. Just last week Europe’s most wanted man, Salah Abdeslam, who was supposed to have been part of the original attacks, was captured in a bloody raid. One has to wonder if they moved up attack because of Abdesalam capture.

Clearly, the European authorities fell short here. In spite of all the warnings in the world, dozens have been killed and hundreds have been injured. They had to know it was coming and yet seemed helpless to stop it. It’s evident that the attitude of Europe still refuses to acknowledge the magnitude and nature of the radical Islamic threat it faces. We pray they face reality soon before more are slaughtered.

Yesterday, the FBI stopped its hearing against Appple, saying they may have found a way to get into the San Bernaridno shooter’s phone without the company’s help. If Apple would have cooperated with the FBI, could the Brussels attack have been stopped? We may not know the answer yet, but it’s certainly possible that this attack or others still to come might have been cut off if Apple had helped the government.
