Bomb-making class gone awry? Another one of those “gas leaks” that have become so common in Europe and the U.K. in recent years? Some other form of diversity and cultural enrichment? No telling. It could be an accident. It could be jihad. That’s the exhilarating aspect of Ramadan!

Ramadan begins in Indonesia as Muslims with swords attack police, one dead, three injured
May 17, 2018 8:44 am By Robert Spencer

Ramadan is the month of jihad, the month when Muslims strive to please Allah more fervently. And so because murdering Infidels who are considered to be at war with Allah is a pious act, there is generally more bloodshed during Ramadan than during the rest of the year.

...
    (CNN)Four attackers armed with samurai swords targeted a police station in western Indonesia on Wednesday morning, killing at least one officer, police said.

    The individuals crashed a vehicle into the entrance of the Riau province police headquarters in Pekanbaru, on the island of Sumatra, and began attacking officers, national police spokesman Setyo Wasisto said. Police shot and killed the four suspected terrorists, he added.

    The attackers were members of a terror group called the Indonesian Islamic State, which is affiliated with ISIS, Wasisto said.

    The driver of the van then attempted to the flee the scene, hitting and killing one police officer, he added. Two police officers and one local journalist were also injured in the attack?.

Indonesia Church Bombings Carried Out by Family With Children in Tow

BANDUNG, Indonesia ? One suicide bomber appeared to have been disguised as a churchgoer. Another drove a Toyota minivan with a bomb to one attack site. Still another was seen in footage speeding on a scooter toward a church before an explosion.

After the back-to-back bombings that targeted three churches in Surabaya, Indonesia?s second-largest city, as worshipers gathered between services on Sunday morning, the police said they had been the work of one family: a couple who had led their four children on a terror spree that took their own lives and those of at least seven other people.

The Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attacks, according to the group?s news agency, Amaq. In an initial bulletin, the group described each of the bombings as a ?martyrdom? operation. In a subsequent, longer media release, the Islamic State identified three modes of attack: a car bomb, a suicide vest and a motorcycle-borne bomb.
