Many people have been killed or seriously injured in terrorist attacks at Brussels international airport and a city metro station, Belgium’s PM says.
Two explosions hit Zaventem airport at about 07:00 GMT, and another struck Maelbeek metro station an hour later.
Belgium has now raised its terror threat to its highest level.
The attacks come four days after Salah Abdeslam, the main fugitive in the Paris attacks, was seized in Brussels.
Prime Minister Charles Michel called the Brussels attacks “blind, violent and cowardly”, saying they were a “tragic moment in our country’s history. I would like to call on everyone to show calmness and solidarity”
It’s said the death toll at 26, with 136 wounded.
French President on deadly attacks in Brussels: We have to be calm, lucid and determined in what will be a long war against terrorism.

No statement from President Obama yet, but I’m sure he’ll be blaming this on Islamophobia by lunchtime. Some have already started.

Yes, really. In the face of blatant Islamic evil and violence, some SJW leftists are still trying to virtue signal their tolerance for terrorism.
More afraid of “rightwing rhetoric”? Okay. Let’s walk on down this logic trail. The worst result of “right wing rhetoric” that we’ve seen in recent history is someone being punched at a Donald Trump rally. Now, to be fair, that’s not without its problems. But compare that to, oh, say… thousands of people killed in the name of Islam? No. Also the child rape, the burning of people alive in cages etc. etc. This is all old hat to you by now.
Something else… Belgium (or France) HAS NO “RIGHT WING RHETORIC.” Again what’s the logic here? That Islamic terrorists are fighting back against American militarism by attacking… women and children in Belgium?
Civilians at a theater in Paris?
Immediately after these attacks, the hashtag #PrayForPeace appeared. Listen, peace is nice. We all want it. But right now, I’m not praying for peace. I’m praying for wisdom and resolution. Sometimes, those things aren’t very peaceful. Sometimes, the light of peace only appears at the end of a long tunnel of violence.
Islam has already decided to make this conflict violent. Your desiring of peace doesn’t make it so. Just like you can’t stop a car from diving into your lane if he wants to kill himself through oncoming traffic, peace can only function as a two-way street.
All it takes for peace to be destroyed is one party to forgo it. Only one. That’s already happened. We’re there. We’re in it now. So please, don’t be delusional.
Also, learn some history. The problem is Islam.
