Following the Manchester bombing that just rocked the UK, BBC host Katty Kay said that Europeans have to get used to more Islamic terror attacks.
Speaking on MSNBC’s Morning Joe on Tuesday, Kay said that Europeans have no choice but to accept terrorists murdering their children because it’s impossible to get rid of Islamic terrorism.
“Europe is getting used to attacks like this, Mika. They have to, because we are never going to be able to totally wipe this out,” Kay said. “As ISIS gets squeezed in Syria and Iraq, we’re going to see more of these kinds of attacks taking place in Europe and Europe is starting to get used to that.”
Kay then said that nobody is “used to having children targeted,” suggesting that Europeans are more acclimated to adults being killed by terror attacks.
Kay isn’t the only person to tell people to get used to terror attacks rather than offer a solution.
London’s own mayor Sadiq Khan has said that Islamic terror attacks are “part and parcel of living in a big city” following the Manhattan bombing last September.
“That means being vigilant, having a police force that is in touch with communities, it means the security services being ready, but it also means exchanging ideas and best practice,” Khan said.
Interestingly, the 23-year-old terrorist, identified as Salman Abedi, was known to authorities before he committed the attack, reported CBS.
There are over 3,000 potential terrorists that have been monitored in the UK since 2015, including about 400 ISIS-trained fighters that have returned from war zones in Syria and Iraq, according to British security services.
So far, 22 people, including children, were killed and over 50 injured when Abedi blew himself up at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England attended by 21,000 people.
ISIS responded to the attack with a slightly inaccurate statement, saying that a “caliphate soldier managed to place a number of devices among a gathering of crusaders in Manchester, and detonated them,” when only one explosion took place according to officials, indicating that Abedi could be a “lone wolf” jihadist.
