Apparently, a “lone wolf” terrorist has struck again, at an Ariana Grande concert in the UK. More than 50 injured, reports of 19 killed. Probably a pro-brexit white supremacist neo-nazi Trump supporter, as usual. Or else it was another “lone wolf” that has nothing whatsoever to do with Sunni Islam.
Our hearts and prayers are with Ariana. This simply underscores the need to combat Islamophobia as Muslims are the real victims here, of future theoretical attacks that are within the realm of the possible to occur at some point. I want to be the first progressive to point out that even if the lone wolf was a Muslim, that Britons need to “get used” to this sort of thing and learn to live with it, and that this is the price of multiculturalism.
If it turns out to be a lone wolf Muslim then it will simply underscore the brutality of the Crusades. And it will emphasize the need to protect Muslims and to welcome millions more into western countries to combat those who would use such a tragic, isolated act to undermine and threaten Muslim refugees, who again are the real victims here.
