Here's what's critical: Neither used the word "Christians." And in order to avoid doing so, they went so far as to make up a new term -- "Easter worshippers" -- heretofore unknown to any Christian.

«In sostanza, la regola della sinistra è che nulla di male - non importa quanto sia vero - si può dire dei musulmani o dell'Islam e nulla di buono - non importa quanto sia vero - si può dire dei cristiani o del cristianesimo.»

Questi due tweet ti raccontano molto su Hillary #Clinton e Barack #Obama. Ma molto più importante, ti dicono molto sulla #sinistra.

The official IS claim of the Sri Lanka attacks via @simnasr. Mentions attacking both citizens of coalition countries and ‘Christians at war’ (I.e. Christians that have no pact with the Islamic State)
Also, nothing in this IS statement claiming #SriLankaAttacks mentions supposed revenge for the Christchurch mosque attacks.

The scale of the #SriLanka attacks is hard to fathom - 290 dead & 500+ wounded.

Target choice, scope, coordination & device success rate makes an international nexus here *highly* likely.

Both #ISIS & #AQIS have reported links w. Sri Lanka/ns, but no evidence yet links to this.
#pt: #SriLanka authorities have pinned initial blame on indigenous Islamist movement @ntjinfo, but I'd be amazed if they - or any similar local organization - had the capacity to conduct such a complex series of mass-casualty attacks.

The bomb-maker alone appears very adept.
@ntjinfo #pt: As @RobertPostings has revealed, one of the allegedly-identified #SriLanka suicide bombers, "Zahran Hashim," was an overt #ISIS supporter (as of late-2017), with a social media following of 4,000+.

#SriLanka has also acknowledged ~40 citizens joined #ISIS in #Syria/#Iraq.

1) Hundreds killed and hundreds more wounded in Easter blasts at #SriLanka churches. While no group has yet claimed responsibility, targeting Christians is a staple of #ISIS attack directives (not to mention past attacks in places like Egypt).
2) To that point, #ISIS supporters are already celebrating the attacks as revenge for the military campaign against the group: “Just like the massacre of mosques, it is an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.”…
3) While #SriLanka has indeed been mentioned within #ISIS chatter—along with members from Sri Lanka touted as being within the group’s ranks—the country has never been a prominent staple of incitements and recruitment to the like of other nations.

Background on Sri Lanka: a useful thread by @AmarAmarasingam for those unfamiliar with the country. Sri Lanka’s recent history makes today’s attacks on Christians difficult to explain. But I imagine we will know more soon.
What happened in #SriLanka today and where, from @BBCWorld. Multiple bomb attacks, most in Colombo (the capital) but in two other cities across the country. Churches and hotels struck. Suicide bombers reported, typical of Islamists elsewhere.…

Latest #SriLankaBlast update:
-A lot of Twitter chatter about possible link to #NationalThowheethJamaath. Here's a story relaying the substance, next tweets provides some analysis.…
Argument in favor of #NationalThowheethJamaath culpability for #SriLankaBlasts:
-According to @AFP, #SriLanka police sent out a warning on April 11 that #NTJ was planning suicide attacks on churches. If report is accurate, suggests there's actual intel rather than just rumor.
Argument against ##NationalThowheethJamaath being (sole) culprit for #SriLankaAttacks:
-#NTJ has never conducted operations remotely like this: They've largely limited themselves to vandalism. Have not demonstrated anything like the organizational capacity for major ops.
