Terrorism, of any magnitude, and in any place, is the work of cowards.

In response to the attack this week in Manchester, the so-called “Islamic state” released the following message on social media: “One of the soldiers of the caliphate was able to place an explosive device within a gathering of the crusaders in the city of Manchester.”

A gathering of crusaders? 

Sickening. This was a cowardly attack perpetrated against innocent children.

What a grotesque and infuriating remark.

This is not normal.
