Good morning, America. If you’re just waking up and tuning in, we’ll go ahead and give you the update on the latest slayings that, according to President Hussein Obama, have NOTHING to do with Islam.
Hm, let’s see. The capital city of the country with the world’s largest population of Muslims. Check. They attack a staple of the West- Starbucks. Check. Oh, and they hit the capital building for recently speaking out against terrorism. Check. Nope. Nothing at all to do with Islam.
From the Associated Press:
Jakarta (AFP) – Islamic State-linked suicide attackers struck the capital of Muslim-majority Indonesia Thursday, killing a Westerner and blowing up a Starbucks, police said.
Five extremists launched what police said were Paris-style attacks as they detonated explosives and shot at people in a district packed with malls, embassies and United Nations offices.
The assault also left an Indonesian man dead and 20 other people injured, and a police post destroyed, in what the country’s president called “acts of terror”.
At least Indonesia’s President will call a spade a spade.
