Fatal Friday in Tunisia, Kuwait, and France — 26 June 2015

As reported by RT: “Three fatal terrorist attacks on three continents within hours of each other have left officials fearful that a coordinated campaign of terror is underway, following last week’s calls for ‘a month of disasters for infidels’ by [the] Islamic State”.[1]  The Guardian reports that “[m]ore than 60 people have been killed across three continents, during three separate attacks in Tunisia, France and Kuwait. These attacks are not believed to be coordinated. At least 38 people have been killed in a terrorist attack on a beachside hotel in Sousse, Tunisia and 36 wounded (eight in critical condition).The British Foreign Minister confirmed 5 Britons were among the dead, as was one Irish woman. Guests at the Imperial Marhaba hotel, barricaded themselves in hotel rooms throughout the day. British holidaymakers are being flown back to the UK on Friday night to Gatwick, Doncaster and Manchester airports. Tunisia’s president said the attack was “worse than terrible” and has called for a unified international response to terrorist threats. The Tunisian interior ministry said a gunman was killed in an exchange of fire with security forces. There were conflicting reports over whether there was another gunman, and, if so, whether he was still at large. In Kuwait, at least 27 people were killed by an explosion at a Shia mosque in Kuwait city during Friday prayers. More than 227 people were injured. In France, police have arrested four people – including the main suspect Yassin Salhi – after a decapitated body was found following an attack on a factory in Saint-Quentin-Fallavier, south of Lyon. The suspect had reportedly tried to blow up the factory belonging to a US gas company. The three attacks come just days after after an Islamic State (Isis) spokesman urged jihadists to make the holy month of Ramadan ‘a time of calamity for the infidels … Shias and apostate Muslims’. Isis has claimed the attack in Kuwait but no group has claimed the attacks in Tunisia or France”.[2]

On the same day, homosexuals across the U.S. rejoiced as they were granted the right to engage legally in marital relations in every single one of the 50 states that make up the United States: ‘Friday on the NewsHour, the Supreme Court declares same-sex marriage a nationwide right. Also: Terror attacks kill dozens on three continents, mourning the victims of the Charleston shooting, Mark Shields and Michael Gerson on this week’s news and looking back at a time when the government targeted gay employees (26 June 2015)’.
