All eyes are on Manchester, England, as yet another terror attack was carried out on European soil Monday night.
A radical Muslim terrorist, apparently a son of Libyan refugees, waited outside a packed arena, waiting to blow himself up once the masses funneled outside.
There are at least 22 dead and scores more injured. Unfortunately, this wasn’t the only part of the world that suffered attacks by radical Muslims.
As reported at the Angry Patriot Movement, while everyone is rightfully focused on Manchester, the island nation of the Philippines is suffering from their own outbreak of terrorism.
According to The Independent, a group affiliated with ISIS attacked and captured a small town called Marawi City, which sets on the island of Mindanao.
The terrorist group is going after government officials, civilians, and anyone who stands in their way.
They’ve burned several buildings throughout the town and have mounted their infamous black flag to signify their temporary conquest.
This particular groups is called Maute and has been engaging police and soldiers throughout the streets of Marawi City. So far 2 soldiers and a policeman have been killed, and 12 others have been injured.
Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte cut his visit to Russia short and imposed martial law on the island of Mindanao on Tuesday after fighting erupted during a raid by security forces at a hideout of Islamic State-linked militants.
“The government is in full control of the situation and is fully aware that the Maute/ISIS and similar groups have the capability, though limited, to disturb the peace,” presidential spokesman Ernesto Abella told a news conference in Moscow.
The Philippines has been battling increasing Islamic extremism for years, as radicals have gained a significant foothold in the nation.
The Maute and Abu Sayyaf militant groups have constantly evaded destruction by the military as Duterte has tried to crush extremists and prevent radical Islamist ideology from spreading in his country.
These animals must be stopped. Their cancerous ideology spreads like a virus, infecting the nations across the globe.
No mercy or tolerance should be shown to this kind of extremism. It must be wholly eradicated from the face of the earth, because of the threat it poses to our peaceful society.
The truth must be spoken about Islam if we’re ever going to defeat this enemy. There can be no half measures if we want to alleviate the fear and threat they pose to the world.
