Global terrorism at the hands of the Islamic state continues to spread.
Following the bombing in Manchester, reports have come in that an Islamic state militant group committed numerous heinous crimes throughout a southern Philippine city. Every foreign leader in the world needs to take a stand against this type of radical extremism.
While we’re totally focused on the heinous Islamic terrorist attack in Manchester that killed 22 and wounded scores, across the globe there is further evidence of growing Islamic jihadism.
As reported by Townhall.com, “Islamic State group-linked militants swept through a southern Philippine city, beheading a police chief, burning buildings, seizing a Catholic priest and his worshippers and raising the black flag of IS, authorities said Wednesday.
President Rodrigo Duterte, who had declared martial law across the southern third of the nation, warned he may expand it nationwide. At least 21 people have died in the fighting, officials said. As details of the attack in Marawi city emerged, fears mounted that the largest Roman Catholic nation in Asia could be falling into a growing list of countries grappling with the spread of influence from the Islamic State group in Syria and Iraq.
