Sunni Islamist terrorism struck St. Petersburg just like other areas in Europe including Berlin, Brussels, London, Nice, Paris, and other areas. Indeed, for the Russian Federation then terrorism is nothing new. Of course, unlike European nations, countries including Afghanistan, Egypt, Iraq, Libya, Nigeria, Pakistan, Somalia, Syria, Yemen, and others, face the reality of Sunni Islamist terrorism on a regular basis. Therefore, it is abundantly clear where the threat of international terrorism is coming from in the main, despite the politically correct version of reality and the apologist approach of appeasement that isn’t working.

Hence, the people of St. Petersburg witnessed another barbaric atrocity against innocents. This was done in the name of the same Takfiri faith that believes that slaughtering innocents is sanctioned by Allah and that they will be rewarded with virgins in heaven for butchering.

It is known that at least 10 people have been taken from this world by terrorists who targeted innocents traveling on the St. Petersburg metro. Reports also indicate that over 35 people have been injured. Of course, initial reports are always sketchy but the latest terrorist attack is a grim reminder to the people of the Russian Federation that terrorists have the ability to strike at major cities throughout this nation.

The BBC reports, The first images posted on social media showed a train at a platform in Tekhnologichesky Institut station with a hole blown in its side, along with a number of casualties.”

A chief spokesperson for the National Anti-terrorist Committee, Andrei Przhezdomsky, said, “So far, we say it was an unidentified explosive device as investigators and the Federal Security Service’s bomb specialists are to establish the exact cause of this explosion… Evacuation is over, medical assistance is offered to those hurt.”

He further stated, “All necessary measures are being taken to ensure people’s security. We will do our best to prevent more possible explosions and other criminal actions.”

Sadly, for the Russian Federation, the latest Sunni Islamist terrorist attack joins a brutal list that includes children dying in vast numbers after a brutal hostage siege – to another barbaric hostage taking situation in a theater. These two events resulted in the deaths of approximately 450 people (the majority of deaths in Beslan were children). Therefore, the latest terrorist attack in St. Petersburg is a grim reminder that the security services have great work to do, in order to keep Sunni Islamists at bay.

The apologist agenda will drag up events involving the Russian Federation both internally in the Caucasus region, and externally in Syria. Yet, the reality is that Sunni Takfiris often butcher each other in Syria, while Somalia is virtually 100 percent Muslim and Sunni Islamists still slaughter innocents, in Libya this nation is also virtually 100 percent Muslim but the same Sunni Islamists and militias kill each other – the same applies to other nations. After all, the Sunni Islamist movement called Boko Haram kills Christians and Sunni Muslims alike in Nigeria. Therefore, the latest terrorist attacks, from Iraq to the Russian Federation, from Nigeria to Libya, involve the same Sunni Islamist Takfiris irrespective of the apologist agenda or the alleged motives.
