    Its also a bank hol here too Margarita so lots of people away with their families. So sad for those families spending it with their injured in hospital and their loss also in some cases. Let's hope those still in critical care improve over the holiday. Keep safe over there as well.

    Oh! Thanks, sorry about that, will off them from my list and look for another source!!

    Eta: what about The Telegraph?

    Islamic State calls for 'all-out war' on West at start of Ramadan after Manchester attack
    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/201...ls-all-out-war-west-start-ramadan-manchester/

    "&#8220;Muslim brothers in Europe who can&#8217;t reach the Islamic State lands, attack them in their homes, their markets, their roads and their forums,&#8221; the jihadist group said in a message entitled Where are the lions of war? and published on YouTube."

    "Defending themselves after the suicide attack on Manchester Arena, which left 22 mostly children and teenagers dead, the group said: &#8220;Do not despise the work. Your targeting of the so-called innocents and civilians is beloved by us and the most effective, so go forth and may you get a great reward or martyrdom in Ramadan.&#8221;"

    (Man, that post was so Foxfire...wish he was here with us.)


    Eta: Interesting, "so-called innocents"...

    It's chilling to see how calm and collected this monster seems.
